truthful perceptions: openness…

OPENNESS…

This day brings wondrous ideas, things, and places into my sphere of energy…

I am not guarded, but guided into a stream of everlasting peace and love for the receiving…

I am not blocked, but blessed to find my soul unlatched to give, unblocked to receive and ever knowing that God is ever before me in this experience…

I do not fear, but faith all things into my existence needed for both my growth and my survival…

For the Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, therefore I AM blessed through a provision of unconditional love meeting with a universal supply, to my every need…

In JESUS Name

truthful perceptions: protection…

Over two thousand years ago the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ has sustained and fed the church, meaning the body of Christ. It has given salvation and provision of mankind for everyone who believes is not saved from the wickedness of who they used to be in the world. Jesus through His love and salvation demonstrates a love of protection that can only be equivalent to highly valuing each of our lives beyond our understanding. We need only to follow him and he will cherish us for all eternity.

This highest form of love is not weakened by a wrongful perception of a strong man. Which quite often in this world being a strong man is wrongly defined as possessing an arsenal of guns, committing violence against your wife, spending time in prison and every other form of machismo portrayed on the movie screen.

The fact is the strongest man who walked the earth practiced the highest form of love that is humanly possible and divinely ordained. It was done for the sake of protecting us both from the world we see, the world we don’t see and most importantly from the consequences of investing in negative energy.

When we accept the love of Christ through being born again, we begin to learn how to love ourselves and our flesh, and not in a way of lust as that word flesh is now commercially used and conventionally understood, but in the biblical sense of our uniquely sensitive yet durable skin covering of the soul.  

After being saved by Christ I slowly began to learn how to love my flesh again through organic dieting, regular exercise and developing a disciplined and healthy sleep regimen.

In the eyes of God, once man and woman have made the marital covenant, and he is to love and protect her beyond all things because they are now made whole of one spiritual flesh. “Have you not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they two shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder ~ Matthew 19: 4,5,6…”  

truthful perceptions: spiritual…

“Christian men are more likely to assault their wives…” This would be a quaint oxymoron were it not factual and the facts state that there is nothing quaint, cute or humorous about domestic violence.

How can a man claim to be a follower of Jesus Christ, the greatest iconic figure of love the world has ever known, while at the same time harbor within his soul a demonic influence in stark contradiction to that love?

Religion is defined as the pursuit of a particular system of beliefs and worship. Spiritual is defined as having a relationship based on a profound level of mental and emotional communion with God.

In other words, those men practicing the latter love their wives as Christ loves the church and gave himself for it. He loves his wife as he loves himself and the two are one flesh and no man ever yet hated his own flesh. I contend that any man who calls and defines himself as a religious Christian yet verbally and physically assaults his wife on a daily basis subverts and undermines the Word of God.

I contend his definition of religion gives him an idea of the relationship between God and Man, yet he’s not practiced its fullness of demonstrating an understanding of the true meaning of love between a man and his wife/intimate partner. If a man claims to be Christian and is abusing his wife/intimate partner, then he is practicing a false religion and only fooling himself.

What greater opportunity for a man to practice a true meaning of his spirituality than to love his wife as he loves himself. 

Real repentance and courage must be the bridge by which a man goes from being a quasi-religious pimp to a full-time spiritual and anointed living Man. Let that courage become the new-found weapon that gives, teaches and edifies to a man an anointed spiritual deliverance, and forever banishes the old miserable demonic possessed wife beater. 

Now is the time for the religious-batterer of women to create the greatest possibility of rediscovering the new creature of Christ that he can only become, by walking the walk he talks every Sunday.

truthful perceptions: purpose…

LONGSUFFERING: The etymological history of this word dates back to biblical times and was used most prevalently during the 1600’s in England. Its conventional translation lends itself to the spiritually genetic trait of “Godly Patience”, of which is in and of itself is greater and ultimately more rewarding than human patience.

This genetic trait of GOD calls upon us to raise our level of self-perception equivalent to the pureness of how Almighty GOD sees us. Should we be honestly convicted within ourselves to make our tomorrow’s into what we envision today, this genetic trait of Godly Patience/longsuffering must be intrinsically included in our arsenal of victorious faith.

GENTLENESS: “What considerations we may bear, in rightful efforts be sincere; should armor or might fail the day, let gentleness win, through what we speak, what we talk and what we pray…”

No effort of future success will come to pass without a continuous examination of one’s self. We must be as the surgeon’s hand with skillful precision, and yet as considerate and gradual as the Word of GOD.

This spiritual genetic trait is sublime as it calls not just for the passion of our goal to be evident, but also the “compassion” required in consistently employing love into our labor, and subsequently our labor will demonstrate the commensurate gentleness of the same love we’ve put into it.

truthful perceptions: architect…

IMG_3225 copy

Every architect dreams to create the finest and tallest building for the entire world to behold. Every building engineer dreams to unfold the quasar of their imagination after years of dedicated study in school and countless engineering schematics and model diagrams. The one common denominator shared by these persons of creativity the world over is the shared biblical principle of their occupation.

That principle is that you must first have a solid foundation. Regardless to how much money, manpower, city permits, and insurance cost for the massive project it may require, they first started with the geological analysis of the proposed area of land for a solid foundation of their creation.

As the architects and building engineers of our own lives, we too require a precise and self-perceptible analysis conducive to a solid foundation that remains impervious to spiritually violent weather, flexible to extenuating circumstances and immune to human ridicule. One that is secure to both the earthquakes of our wrong choices and obedient to the inner vocal calls to stop the madness of our journey. A solid foundation irrespective of what torrential rains or typhoon floods may lash upon it and will still continue to stand undeterred.

The foundation I speak of is the confidence of the human Spirit in concert with the power of the human Voice believing in our inherent God given ability to succeed over adversity. Separately these entities are dynamic, yet limited in both scope and nature. Thus it is logical to presume that GOD through wisdom created both to harness the strength of each other not simply for the benefit of the body, but rather the whole earthly life of the Soul.

Learn to preach the power of the human spirit, minister the invincibility of our Lord & Savior JESUS Christ and daily practice His message for us to sincerely love one another, as we genuinely love ourselves.

truthful perceptions: glory

Russel-147

One must want to purposely glorify GOD. As believers we are faced with the same question everyday. Do you prefer the glory of GOD above everything else?

Are you on the Lord’s side? Remember there is always a price to pay for who and what you worship, for whatever you love will always have the tightest grip on your life. In order to get from glory to glory, sometimes we have to give up the level where we are in order to get to where we need to be.

The very purpose of glory is for us to change and if you stand on the shore waiting for everything to look good, you’ll never step into the waters of change. The moment we say yes to GOD the process of change can begin.

So let the ceiling be the floor of your new dimension of change today. Take your wings of faith and ask yourself: How high will you fly?

truthful perceptions: water

Russel-147

Wine has drowned more men than the Sea; but the faithful drink the waters of life which keeps us free; Water symbolizes the flowing life of GOD; It is connected to purity and fertility; It calls attention to spiritual circulation, unity, birth and re-awakening through its creative and life-giving properties; Just as he that is born to be hanged does not fear water, rebellious angels will never reconcile themselves to this flowing life of GOD, nor even confess to the fact of any wrongdoing;

We who love GOD know better; We live in Christ because Christ first lives in us; We rejoice in Christ because though we were once worldly lost, now we are spiritually found and mentally sound; It is our love of possessing Christ consciousness which has taken us to a higher degree from a lowly place; a prosperous life from a certain death and a testimony worthy of praise, rather than a tombstone on an early grave;

Ultimately, its not the holy water that blesses, nor the wine of violence that kills; but the righteous blood/mind of Christ which fixes our focus, flourishes our thoughts and keeps our salvation pure, everlasting and eternally filled; Love Always & Keep Looking Up. IJPN ~ In JESUS Precious Name.

truthful perceptions: opportunity

Russel-147

It is possible to be in this world, yet not of this world; as it matters less to a Man where he is born, than where he can live. Though we may be born in this world, the unceasing chaos, confusion, hatred and cruelty causes wonder as to who would intentionally desire to even claim this world as their own;

Abiding in and staying connected to GOD defines us as being not of this world; GOD lays a practical path for peace and balance for our walk of faith; The world will tell you to embrace Ur fears and magnify Ur insecurities while pushing you to Ur limits of sanity;

However, man’s adversity is GOD’s opportunity to call you out of this world; Whatever GOD calls you to do will always be bigger than you; Protect Ur thoughts at all costs; The mind is the battleground and what you meditate upon magnifies;

Keep the Word of GOD as Ur controlling source for positive thinking, because if you can’t win the battle in Ur mind, you can’t win the wars of this world in Ur life; Love Always & Keep Looking Up. IJPN ~ In JESUS Precious Name.

truthful perceptions: power

Russel-147

Until a demand of faith is placed upon Ur power, its flow is wild, dangerous and potentially destructive; It took a selfish kind of love that brought me to within an inch of losing my life, before I could learn to fight to win back my living faith;

I had knowledge, but soon learned that education is the beginning of a man, and only his conversation will reveal his true character; I had talent, but I learned the greater the talent, the greater the crime; I had money, but I learned that money makes a good servant, but a very dangerous master;

Real power is the quality of Christ-consciousness given to all to realize that we are made in GOD’s image; Not gossiping in the lives of other men and slow to judge ourselves, but enduring the things of the world while bearing our own cross for our own mental growth and spiritual evolution;

Having power without a selfless-inner-driven spiritual conviction is dead, and only a prayerfully nurtured divine faith persuades a genuine open victory;

This alone leads to true power, true happiness and true success. Love Always & Keep Looking Up. IJPN ~ In JESUS Precious Name.
