The flow of my stream of consciousness continued…

  • [Psalm 91:1] Dwell in the shelter of The Elyon is focus on TODAY, not the Weekdays.
    • Each day of the week is governed by some element of the Heavens (the World); whereas, Kingdom Seekers focus on Today, which is governed by The Kingdom and transcends the rulership of the Heavens
  • Di/strict of Co/lumbia:
    • District: territory under the jurisdiction of a lord
      • Di: twice/double
      • Strict: acting in close/absolute conformity to requirements or principles
        • Twice the slave of the World (physically AND spiritually)
        • Co: together with
        • Lumb: near, or situated near the loins (genital area)
          • Lumbar: part of the spine/lower back that supports the most body weight and provides the most flexibility
          • Lumber: wood sawn into rough planks
    • Columbia: a South American country named after Christopher Columbus, who was working on behalf of the King/Queen of Spain
      • Spain colonized The Americas, with Columbia being the location of the Lord of The Americas.
        • North America (Canada) was actually first ‘discovered’ by the British, but the Catholic Church wanted Spain to be the country that gained access to this new source of resources; therefore, Spain is ‘credited’ with being the first to ‘discover’ America.  This set off a chain of events that eventually led to England breaking away from the Catholic Church.
          • Spain, as the Founder, can be considered the Father of North America
          • England, as the place that initially populated North America, can be considered the Mother of North America
          • Governor: responsible for implementing/overseeing that the Will of The King is set forth in the colony…so that the colony becomes a reflection of the ways, laws, culture, etc. of the home country
            • This example is a World-based reflection of how Heaven colonizes Earth to make it The Kingdom of Heaven.  Kingdom Seekers become Man, and as such, serve as The Governor to assist in colonizing the World.
  • Abundance: a great or plentiful amount; fullness to overflowing
    • a/bundance – a-: a prefix meaning not; bundled
      • Kingdom Seekers receive abundance because they are not bundled together with the World
    • Ab/un/dance – ab-: a prefix meaning away from; un-: a prefix meaning not; dance: to move rhythmically to music, in a pattern of steps
      • Abundance: Moved away from NOT dancing
        • Kingdom Seekers learn the New Song, and as the result, begin to (spiritually) dance/celebrate the greatness of The Father/The Kingdom.
        • Spiritually speaking, the World doesn’t dance
        • Ab/und/ant – ab-: away from; und-: beneath and covered by; -ant: an agent…someone authorized to act on behalf of another
    • Ab/und/ant – ab-: away from; und-: beneath and covered by; -ant: an agent…someone authorized to act on behalf of another
      • Abundant: away from being in a lower position than an agent of the World
        • Kingdom Seekers received abundantly because they become agents of The Father in Heaven
  • Hypocrite: a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion (piety)
    • Hypo: under/beneath
    • Critic: one who complains/finds fault
      • Does so because of human emotions
  • In walking on the water, Jesus showed how to make what appears to be impossible possible through proper focus (Matthew 14:22-33).  Jesus offered Peter the opportunity to do what appeared to be impossible, through Kingdom Seeking; however, Peter  focused more on the environment rather than ‘keeping his eyes stayed on thee [The Father in Heaven]’ (Isaiah 26:3), and as a result, Peter began to sink.
    • Keeping ‘eyes’ on Thee:
      • Remember all is written AND completed; therefore, you can TRUST Him.
      • Remember to Count it ALL Joy; therefore, you can give THANKS to Him.
      • Remember to Praise The Lord at ALL times; therefore, PRAISE Him.
    • Thought process building is similar to playing the video game TETRIS.  Thought processes build on each other until they form a solid base.  Kingdom Seeking creates holes in the old/former base built while in the World.  Conformity to World-based thoughts appears to promote smooth assistance and support from those within the World; however, once Kingdom Seeking thought process building begins, the opposite begins to occur from those within the World…the assistance and support may begin to wane because the foundation on which the assistance and support came (conformity to World-based thoughts) is no longer the Kingdom Seekers foundation; therefore, different foundations bring different results.
      • Kingdom Seeking (patience, positivity, preciation) allows the proper thoughts to be received, forming a solid foundation that can’t be affected by non-Kingdom thoughts
  • In the World, religious people who display acts of piety, are in fact acting as a MORTIMER
    • Piety: reverence for God or devout fulfillment of religious obligations (as in Jewish, Muslim, etc. practices)
    • Mortimer: a person who knows a lot about a subject matter (originally applied to people who know a lot about computers/the Internet) but would rather ridicule those who know less, rather than share their knowledge.
      • Mortify: to cause to experience shame, humiliation, or wounded pride
        • Mortimers attempt to mortify; nonetheless, they are simply serving their purpose within the realm of Contrast to cause a person to truly seek out Truth.
  • Kingdom Seeking in internal (learning from within) by sitting ‘still’ and being positive.  Kingdom instructions are ‘downloaded’ into the spirit and then practiced
    • World learning is done externally: one must go OUT to others to learn, work, etc.
      • This method is necessary and serves a great Kingdom purpose in preparing a person for their eventual role within The Kingdom.
  • Kingdom Seeking is similar to a man in the World driving a car, but appears to be lost but won’t ask for directions; thereby, frustrating his female passenger.
    • A Kingdom Seeking Husband is trusting he is being led by something that the wife can’t see/nor understands (similar to how a woman’s intuition works).
    • Adonai is the ‘GPS’ navigator  that is leading the way and although ‘others’ may not understand the path taken by the Kingdom Seeker, the path was known before the beginning of the journey and everything is already known and followed by/through the use of Faith and Trust.
  • I dwell in the shelter of TODAY (Elyon) and rest in the shadow of El Shaddai/The Almighty (everything good is always coming/things to come).
  • Women who go directly from their father’s home, to being in a committed relationship (Marriage) may appear to feel like they have not learned ‘who she is’, and feel the need to be on their own to learn about themselves, rather than follow the teaching of their husband.  The feeling is one of having the teaching ‘forced’ on them.

Loving a wife in the World with an earnest heart, but without proper/any training as a Kingdom Seeker cause the divorce with my first wife.

  • While she was very sweet, non-confrontational, non-combustible, the lack of contrast did not cause me to be inspired to dream (I had not received enough contrast to know what I liked/didn’t like).  As a result, I did not have enough information as to how to a husband.  I had no desire for physical sexual seeking beyond her, as I felt like my needs were being met.
  • My first wife left me to ‘find herself’ due to my lack of training as to how to be a husband, which may have caused her great fear given my limited understanding.  Nonetheless, the situation caused her to want ‘out’ from under her father or my leadership.
  • Due to the limitations of my first marriage, I was determined to love my second wife beyond my limitations, but THIS TIME, the relationship was loving, yet full of combustion and confrontation.  Nevertheless, this environment of Contrast taught me how to dream/think bigger beyond my environment and situation.  The contrasting environment taught me to know what I liked/didn’t like.  Knowing what I liked/didn’t like did lead me to attempting to fulfill the need for continual outside sexual satisfaction to fill the void/ease the pain of the lack of support I received as a result of the combustible/confrontational environment I found myself in.
    • Once I began my Kingdom Seeking training (which taught how to be a man, husband, father), it caused fear in my second marriage because of its ‘radical’ nature and her initial lack of trust in my training.  Furthermore, the introduction began to cause my second wife to question to teaching/training that she had received from her father, partly because prior to my Kingdom Seeking, I followed her and her advice, and her information was based on the teaching she had received from her father, and up until that point, it appeared to be successful.  However, once I began Kingdom Seeking, not only did previously successful advice no longer result in positive results, that same information that I once followed blindly (partly because I had no other information to use) was no longer being effective for my wife to use on me as the way to ‘back-seat’ drive the decisions of my life/my family.
  •  ‘Sexual Sins’: Receiving Kingdom Seeking Training, yet being OF the World, rather than OF The Kingdom…allowing World-based thoughts, and/or the one(s) who is living by it, to affect what is done, rather than allowing Kingdom-based training to guide all thoughts/actions.
    • This principle was shown in Genesis 3 with Adam and Even.  Adam had not yet received Kingdom Training – even though he did receive instructions – so he was allowed to be swayed; thereby, beginning the overall journey to the Path to Likeness/Kingdom Seeking training that Jesus would eventual teach about.
    • The journey away from the teachings of the World, towards the teachings of The Kingdom happens as a result of the need to learn the value of personal wealth, self-control, thought process building, etc., as well as the value of how all of it fits into the purpose of The Kingdom of Heaven.
    • Kingdom Seeking ensures that no one who is OF the World can sway thinking with false teachings in the World
      • Ephesians 4:14 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
      • World/false teachings sway those who don’t know who they are (Man); therefore animal spirits try to train others to become like/less than they are.
  • The way that Africans were introduced to money, as   to gain access to newly introduced items/products — that were suggested as being superior to the items/products they already had free access to – is the inverted example of how The Kingdom uses Faith as the way for the World to gain access to the better way of living (Eternal Life).
    • It may appear to have been negative how money was used to introduce new items/products that were previously free; however, it led to the Path that allowed World slaves to learn from World masters, which eventually allowed ‘slaves’ to gain access to Kingdom understanding that leads to being a True Master.
    • The Kingdom shows that money has no true value; Faith does.
  • Learning as I go/live; practicing what I learn
  • An unhealthy spirit is not in harmony with the physical body and results in the various diseases people in the World are diagnosed with.
    • A healthy spirit (positivity, patience, preciation; Kingdom Seeking) is in harmony with the physical and results in Eternal Life.
    • Jesus mesmerized to heal, by using a higher animal magnetism (belief) to bring lower animals spirits higher///Matthew 9:3233 32 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil. 33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marveled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.
    • Mesmerize: to [God] spellbind, to hypnotize; to compel by fascination…as in practicing the art of healing introduced by Franz Mesmer. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Mesmer)
      • Franz Mesmer provided pseudo-scientific supporting theories as to how Jesus was able to heal people through the use of his faith/touch, and he called it animal magnetism.
      • Of the several proposed theories on the use of animal magnetism and the use of its energy/life force, Franz Mesmer defined an aspect of animal magnetism as a system of cure.  According to Mesmer, the ‘magnetizer is able to direct his vital fluid [spirit] toward the sick person, and heal him’. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_magnetism)
  • Jesus ‘laid hands’ on those he healed (a physical reinforcement of his spiritual belief/healing), was charismatic in his speech (the ability to use the Power of Suggestion positively effective), and required the ‘healed ones’ to remain connected to Him (via maintaining faith and practice of his teachings) so that they could maintain their results.  This process was called ‘sweeping clean/casting out demons’…maintaining faith and practicing the teachings keep the person clean/free from demons (old ways/thoughts processes of the World that prevented the person from achieving spiritual growth).
    • Matthew 12:43-45 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order.45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”
    • Physical animals use the Earth’s magnetic field to navigate their movements; likewise, spiritual ‘animals’ are initially drawn to similar/higher spirits as that of themselves (which dictates their thoughts/actions), yet, all are ultimately drawn  to the magnetism of The Holy Spirit.
    • Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make Man in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
      • This verse clearly indicates that Man (highest spiritual maturity) will be dealing with/ruling over spiritual ‘animals’ (Humans/lower spiritual maturity).
