Faith, Forgiveness and Freedom #98 .3
If we are to be free, forgiven and faithful we must free, forgive and allow our neighbor to act according to their own good conscience. There is freedom of speech in the kingdom and each of us are responsible for what we say or choose to not say.
With Faith and Forgiveness there is freedom from fear. Then you can hear the truth about everything and you will not be moved to fear. If you simply believe an idea, then fear will be your constant companion ready to devour you at the first sign of mental doubt.
Most people mistake belief in an idea about God with faith in God. Faith in God is about having His character written in you.
The Pharisees put their faith on from the outside and became the apostate Church of their day. They cloaked their false faith in religious rituals, endless prayers and complex doctrines, but they hated the simple truths of Christ who endicted them because they were slothful in attending to the weightier matters and had a system of Corban that made the word of God to none effect.
While the presentation during the 2011 Whirlwind Tour constantly morphed along the whole route of those 10,000 miles, there were a few topics that were repeated over and over. One is the kingdom of God has always been here. The Kingdom of God is the right to be ruled by God. We have been deceived and distracted from the ways of God by many means and methods. Those ways have not changed because God has not changed.
The kingdom is bound together by faith, hope and charity. It is a nation/people and not merely isolated individuals or congregations. And some times "shift happens" that tests, cleanses and affirms that a society based on God's true nature is superior to the ways of Babylon....
Here is a sample of the talks given on the 2011 Whirlwind Tour in Waynseville [about 2.25 hours]:
There has been some question about what I should say and where I should say it, and everyone has the right to speculate or consider those options, but I am the one who must choose to act, speak or hold my piece/peace. The same is true for everyone else in the network who is seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness. And each of us must bear the burden of making the wrong choice or even failing to make a choice at all.
Each of us must learn to be guided by the Holy Spirit in what we do and say, or even think. We must allow others to seek that same divine inspiration and allow them to act according to its leading... That precept is the fertile ground in which the seeds of the kingdom may grow.
CME's or Coronal Mass Ejections coming from the sun have been a major concern put on my heart and in my mind by God since I was nine years old.That was the first time I observed sunspots on the sun through a telescope. My concern is not coming from Fox News.
The truth is, even Jesus said look for signs in the sun. Why?
Was he listening to the "Fox" of His day...? :-) [Luke 13:32]
Even in the reign of Tiberius there were major CME events on the sun. Those events actually altered the plans of government and moved a cohort to Ostia to put out the fire by the command of Caesar. These are real events that altered conditions in Rome and eventually in Judea effecting the very core of the planet we live on. If those CMEs occurred today there would be far more devastating consequences to society and its infrastructure... Jesus thought it worth mentioning along with earthquakes and wars coming. Was Jesus fear mongering?
In our modern times, because of our dependence on electricity, those natural cycles and events are more than capable of changing the world as we know it in a twinkling of an eye.
The potential for changing lives, economies and society in general is an important topic and neither I nor Jesus neglected it. The reality of a large CME altering the world we live in was one of the last things I brought up at each stop, and I believe it is very important to warn people of this real and actual danger.
Although sunspots themselves produce only minor effects on solar emissions, their count has been used to measure overall activity. The total output of the sun is not measured in sunspots. The magnetic activity that accompanies sunspots can produce dramatic changes in the ultraviolet and soft X-ray emission levels. These changes over the solar cycle have important consequences for the Earth's upper atmosphere and therefore down here where whirlwinds, weather and we the people live.
Even in solar minimum there is a danger to our society and the people who depend upon it. The magnitude of solar flares has far surpassed what science originally believed possible. I have watched for over half a century as astrophysicists increased the parameters of measured solar magnitude events every time a new maximum level is breached.
We have gone from M[1-10] class to X[1-10] class to an unnamed class on the charts in the last few decades. And the truth is that largest flares are liable to come after solar max has ended and we are in solar decline such as the X-17 event that occurred in 2005. That one flare alone, had it been earth bound, would have changed the life of everyone on the planet. Activity and intensity has been on a steady rise and it appears only a matter of time untill the earth undergoes another major event like the ones at the time of Christ or the white-light solar flare which occured in 1859, the Carrington Event.
Solar activity is very high and we depend on our own network to monitor its activity with privately owned equipment and satellite observations. It has nothing to do with Fox News. They are finally reporting some of the danger that has been real for decades.
The activity will decrease again and there will be more solar minimums that will bring problems of their own.
It is the unique and modern dependence on electricity that will bring the greatest change. Simply putting in your own power generation system is not the solution.
This has nothing to do with fear but wisdom and love.
We preach a gospel of faith and love but that faith and love require that we are doers of the word.
The real danger is apathy and sloth. People are not diligently building the network or spreading the good news that the kingdom of God is at hand, has always been at hand and is dependent upon repenting of our sloth and apathy, covetousness and negligence which has brought us to this vulnerable state and bondage.
We need to be actively preaching and seeking the kingdom for others and not merely for ourselves, and should strive to get the word heard and the people properly prepared in the ways of the Lord. We have had numerous talks about syndication of the Radio broadcast "Keys of the Kingdom". This will take the support of others. It will be their choice and it is between them and their Lord if they should assist in that preaching project or not.
"This is [he], of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee." Luke 7:27
Those ways of God have always included a network of people who are caring doers of the word of God as they are individually led in their hearts and in their minds by His Holy Spirit. They come together in His name. That name is who He is, the essence of His identity and character. It is composed of a people who are moved, not by fear, but by love of Him and love of one another....
"Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses. One shall say, I am the LORD’S; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel. Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them. Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any." Isaiah 44:1 - 8
