There were many wide-spread lies in the dark ages in the church.  Many of those lies were bound by the reform.  But when it comes to the nature of God.  There is a concept that still persists and preached as if it is true.  It’s not based on scriptures or anything.  It’s just a very defended concept that many support.

This is the saying that Trinity is a mystery that no one can possibly understand.  It’s a way to close the subject before any question may arise.  Whoever even touches it, is automatically considered heretic.  This was one of the main causes of mass killing by the Catholic church based on heresies.

The Atheist proclaim to experience freedom of religion as an awakening.

The true is that we all should be free of the religion that encourages ignorance.   We should be free of the religion where faith is based on dogmas that prohibit the search for explanations.

When we proclaim the true, there is no fear of being found.  There is nothing to hide.

Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, proclaimed the true and warn us against foolishness.

The conversion to Jesus Christ is the real awaking of our lives.   He make us to understand that the world is all about understanding God and it’s purpose for our lives.   This is what brings happiness, peace and joy.

We know the world is true because it has become reality to us.

Like that song “Amazing Grace”  “I was lost, now, I am found.  I was blind, now I see.”

As a Christian transformed by the word of God and his power, I can say from the bottom of my heart.

“The Lord is my Shepherd, nothing I shall want.”

“I live no more, but Jesus lives in me.  And whatsoever I live in the flesh, I live it by faith in The Son of God who gave himself for me.”

He keeps my soul alive.

If Jesus was God, why did he pray to himself?
Jesus praying to The Father

Jesus Praying to Himself

Some people think that human intelligence will made them bible wizards. But the true is, that even when The Bible is targeting educated and non-educated people, the bible is not mean to be understood according to human knowledge.

1 Corinthians 2:13-14

“13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. 14 The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

The first step to understand the scriptures, is to accept that you are a sinner. The second step, is to repent sincerely. Then, we need to recognize that all perfect wisdom and all perfect gifts are coming from God. We need to recognize that all men are liars, but God is truthful. We need to understand, that we know nothing, but God has all the answers.

Isaiah 29:11-14

“11 And the vision of all this has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed. When men give it to one who can read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot, for it is sealed.” 12 And when they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot read.” 13 And the Lord said: “Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment of men learned by rote; 14 therefore, behold, I will again, do marvelous things with this people, wonderful and marvelous; and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hid.”

God is Spirit and his word should be understood spiritually. The problem is that the fleshy man sees all

spiritual things as without meaning. The spirit is known by experience. It’s not a feeling. It’s knowledge. It’s faith.

Spiritual is what is true in our hearts. Sometimes, the spiritual is manifested in our emotions. The reason is that the emotions express what is deep in our hearts. When emotions overpass our reasoning, we can say, they are coming from the heart, or from the spirit. But you can be certain, they have a reason to be.

For example, I can say, this person has no reason to be mad at me. I am not happy with this person’s attitude, but I can’t feel upset no matter what. I just can’t. This can be called love or trust. This is what

stop us from feeling anger even when reasonable we should. It’s not

is coming not from our mind. This is coming from our hearts. It’s a spiritual feeling or probably not feeling, but perception. It’s stronger than our mind’s will.

So it’s God. He is true and we know him. We do not know him because of words, but because we experienced him.

In the passage above, God complains that this people honor him from the mouth and not from their hearts. They are like automate worshipers that are not really into what they are doing. They do it because someone told them to do so. It’s not from their own hearts. They do not mean what they are saying when they sing. They do not do good because their hearts drive them to do so. We can say, it’s from the flesh.

Some people misunderstand what comes from the flesh. They think that from the flesh mean sinful. But, it just means that it’s not from the spirit. It could be with good intention, but not truthful and not from the heart. And because of this, it does not last.

Then, is Jesus God or not?

“Jesus is praying to himself” is one of the many popular comments that men and women without spiritual understanding make. They have no clue of what is God and who is Jesus.

If Jesus is God, why Jesus prayed so much?

Understand once for all, that God is spirit. God is not a man, neither a son of man.

The bible explains very clear that Jesus was praying to the Father “God.” He said, that he was not The Father, That the Father was bigger than him. That he came from The Father.

The relationship between God and Jesus has been a theme of debate for centuries.

If God is spirit, he can never be just a man. But he can be in a man. God was in Jesus.

Jesus is Christ. Christ means the anointed. We recognized Jesus as The real Tabernacle of God. The only way for us to know God.

It may sound a little silly, but in moments of desperation or frustration, really works to call Jesus and tell him exactly how we feel.

I was in church for many years, and “knew a great deal about the bible.”  I remembered that my pastor told me once, that I was an elderly of the church to my surprise.  And even after that, at one point, I found myself struggling and I said in my heart, I need Jesus.

And I told him.  I said Lord, Jesus, I need you.  I need you to fix my life.  I need, you.

And I started surfing the web about Jesus.  I subscribed to newsgroups about Jesus.  And all I found were people denying God and cursing.  I started talking to them, exposing the gospel.  I started telling them about Jesus.  All the words were coming back to me.  And at the same time, those words were talking to me.

The whole bible started having a more especial meaning.  Every story in the bible was like brand new.  The stories that I heard since I was a child got a special power and sounded different.

Then, the greatest thing happened.  The Lord started working with me.   I never felt him so close.  My prayers were answered, I changed.  Everything changed.  I started seeing things from a different perspective.

So many things that I used to believe, I started seeing them as they were.  I realized that I was believing many lies.

I understood that The Lord truly love us and care about us.  That the blessing of God is always there if we just can see it. Also, I understood that I was blind, that I couldn’t see.  The Lord opened my spiritual eyes.  I also understood, that I was never as righteous as I thought.  But that The Lord could take me through all the way if I just trust him.

I learned that I would never be the same.  I started seeing things differently, feeling more compassion, caring more about others.  I got so sensitive, that I even started liking Opera.  I mean Christian Opera and old music.  I was living every feeling coming from the music.

When I read the news, I prayed in the spirit.  Every morning was a day for The Lord.

Holy Spirit

Awakening of The Holy Spirit

Awakening of The Holy Spirit

There are some offensive expressions when referring to the Pentecostal movements. Ignorance is dangerous, but even more dangerous is to talk about the things, we do not know.  And it’s even more dangerous to talk against the Holy Ghost.

What most of those who criticize this ignore, is that the person dancing or praying in the Spirit, is 100% conscious of everything.  There is not such trance, or real slain.

The Spirit takes over your tongue or your body, but you still have full control over your body and your tongue.  And sometimes, the person is not under the control of The Holy Spirit but under their own flesh.

What these people actually experience is a deep joy.  This is worshiping at another level, where people cry of joy, feel God.  See their praise answered and God treating them as individuals.

I had seen something that sounded very awkward to me.  There are people who call the congregation and tell them, let’s speak in tongues now.  What’s the purpose of speaking in tongues?  To me, this sound fake.  You speak in tongues when you pray or when the Spirit address you to do so.  Even when you pray, it’s not a calculated choice.  The Spirit is the one intervening mysteriously.  You pray for things you don’t know and often for things you know.  You understand what is going on, and the feelings of joy and sorrow are passed to you.  Your soul is renewed, your love for the souls increases.  After, you are more capable to face the day and the troubles coming with it.

Unfortunately, the practice has been exploited by some to gather ignorant multitudes seeking for a real experience with God.  But the good thing about it is that even when the ministers are wrong, The Spirit is truthful and the clean soul is not contaminated.

Part of the job of The Spirit is to keep us awake.   The Spirit reveals mysteries and warn us of things that could harm us beforehand.

People do not manipulate The Holy Ghost.   There is no magic hands on one preacher, unless God has given it.   And if God gives the gift, the kingdom of God is manifested.

There are other types of spirits, but the Spirit of God is recognized by its fruit ( As a single fruit):

Galatians 5:22-23
“22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

The Spirit of The Lord’s purpose is to rebuild our lives and make us capable for all good work to enhance the kingdom of God.  It brings freedom, discipline and wisdom.  When I say freedom, I mean, freedom of the soul.  It allowed us to say no to sin and no the lairs who profane the word of God.

When you see something you do not understand, pray to God to open your eyes.  Do not judge by the appearance.

Joel 2:28

“28And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:”

Praise The Lord!

You may call it coincidence.

Today and yesterday, I assisted to a camp meeting. Yesterday, the preacher read the same passage I read to my children the night before. He talked about the same theme of a movie I saw the week before. And finally, he preached about the same thing, I have being praying that week.

The next day, I asked God about something.  And guess what?  The preacher preached about it.  And one of the scriptures I posted in my post was what he used that night.

Some other coincidence:

I keep forgetting things.  I misplace things, and then I can’t find them.  When I say, God, where is it?  Almost all the time, I immediately find them.  Or sometimes, I ask God to direct me where to look, and where my heart tells me to go, I go.  And almost all the time I find them.

Why not all the time?  This is a question for God that I would like to know.

Another coincidence:

When I was pregnant for the first time, I was scared.  I heard so many stories of pain and extreme labor that I couldn’t help not to be scared.

Well, I asked God to not let me see and suffer the pain of the delivery.  This did not make too much sense.  But the true is that, I had a natural delivery of a beautiful and perfectly healthy girl, while sleeping.

I did not see the birth of my first daughter.  I had no major pain, but everything went well.

Finding God, sometimes is a learning process.  It takes either belief or genuine sincerity.
