What is the first thing we must do when we are reborn?
Should we go out shouting to the whole world that God exists, trying to “convert” everyone? No, we shouldn’t. Should we join a group and learn how to perform miracles? No, we shouldn’t. Should we give away all our possessions and become hard on ourselves, fasting and living on a single piece of rice a day? No, we shouldn’t!
So what should we do? Read the pure words of God! For only the pure word of God can transform the dross of the world into the gold of the heart! Wel,l how will I know what is the pure word of God? By His name, “I Am”. All religious writings have phrases with “I Am” in them. In this way you know God, and only god, is talking in that sentence. In the Bible it says, “I Am the way the light and the truth. There is no other way to God except through I Am!” (although many read the word me as Jesus it is actually I Am – what are the first two words in the quote? I Am.) It is God who is talking here through the Holy Spirit (the knowable essence of God).
With any religion we are meant to go to the messenger and through the messenger to the Holy spirit. Jesus describes this action as being reborn into the water (the messenger – as they are bubbling wellsprings of God’s message. A bubbling wellspring is water!) and then into the fire/spirit – the Holy Spirit, the knowable essence of God. The water is the box the gift comes in, the Spirit/fire is the actual gift inside the box! We have to open the box to get the benefits of the spirit. What is the point of falling in Love with the box and never opening it? Unfortunately this is the sad reality of many believers, in many faiths in the world today.
When I was reborn I read 4 books in the first month and then had nothing to read, so I asked God for more spiritual information/books. Within three days a man knocked at my door and gifted me a pile of books over two metres high! Lol! It took me a year to read them all! But that gave me the foundation stones of faith, of true belief. True belief is when you make God your first port of call in any situation, not your last port of call! It is also learning to live under the higher laws of the universe and submitting your will to His Will.
When I lived in Woodville I used to get sent newly born Christians and my advise was always – get yourself a red letter Bible and read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Read the red letters first because those are the pure words that come from the mouth of God. The the remaining black words are simply fillers, expansions, explanations and, in some cases, distractions.
I was lucky in that I also read the Holy Koran and New Age spiritual manifestations words, not open to the Christians I advised. For God never leaves us to ourselves. I see God as the headmaster and Manifestations as the school teachers. Every year we get a new teacher and never do they say, “forget everything you’ve learned in the past” because they simply build on the shoulders of the past years teachers “If I have seen further than others it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants” Isaac Newton.
Nor do they say, “I am your last teacher, so you must stay on this class forever!” at the end of the current year you will be allowed to progress onto the next teacher – if you will accept him! If you don’t accept him, then you stay in the same class over and over and over! Your friends of this year will grow and grow and grow, and become adults. You will also grow too, but you will remain at the same education level forever, until you decide to move on! Which means you must accept a new teacher! For God the Headmaster teaches us about continuous education.
In spiritual terms this is known as continuous revelation and every 700 to 1,000 years a new teacher appears to the world, asking us to step forward and advance to the next level. He also brings new benefits that are spread on everyone alike. Look at Jesus, when he came the Jewish laws of death penalties were replaced and today even the Jews don’t practice their own faith’s rules!
When Muhammed came he bought new rules too and within 700 years the Christians were using Islamic rules to justify the “Holy wars” of the crusades! Today we live under the rule of a new manifestation who brought us the equality of males and females, who taught that science and religion should agree, because one is How God created the universe and the other is Why he created it. If the two don’t agree then one or the other must be wrong! The new Manifestation also bought about the concept of the unity of mankind -“the earth is but one country, mankind it’s citizens!” There is so much more – basically all the benefits of the world today – that he bought too. But until the human heart asks to have those truths revealed to him he stays ignorant of the facts. God is totally visible to anyone who asks him, partially visible to those who ask him for that and totally invisible to the rest of the world! LOL!
If you want God to be totally visible for you, then you must ask him out aloud. Nothing happens until it is spoken. Thoughts have no energy which is why thoughts of progress are called wishes! Spoken words are called affirmations and written words (which use the vibrations of light, rather than sound) are called goals. I recommend that you write your goa/desirel down to meet God fully in His current manifestation and then speak it aloud! This is 100 times more powerful, and so much quicker for Him to respond to you, because you are more open!
God will respond and you will be guided to the ultimate truth and then, then you can quietly sit and read the pure word of God. It may take several years before you are “changed” enough to perform any task for Him. But when you are ready, you will be told! Lol!
God is closer to you than the artery in your neck. Don’t go seeking afar. Every word you utter is heard by God, why go chasing after rainbows to find Him. Just ask, just ask, just ask!
