Protecting the "Status Quo"

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

As I have written in the past huge amounts of bailout money have been made available to financial institutions.  Some local institutions were forced to take the money, and expect to send it back as soon as possible.  It would paint the picture that bailout money is being widely distributed rather than targeting a narrow audience.  Over time, we have consistently seen the “paint a rosy picture” scenario by various administrations tinkering with government statistics- employment numbers, consumer price index, core index, money supply, etc.  The latest “tinkering” is the accounting standards applicable to the banks’ valuation of toxic assets.  Effectively, the banks can play with their balance sheets thus effecting a drastic improvement of income and painting a better financial picture.  If you or I did the same in an effort to receive a loan from the bank, we would be convicted of fraud.  If those banks with toxic assets were to value the toxic assets at current market value, they would be “insolvent” and that is a scary prospect for the current financial system.

Why are the world leaders pursuing this path?  They are attempting to protect the counterfeit reality that keeps them in power.  The current structure promotes and protects its power structure from any outside interference.  Students of history know that this will not last indefinitely.  Rome fell, the British Empire lost its status, and the United States is on the same road to ruin.  There is no way in the current system to pay back the money committed other than defaulting on future obligations or inflating the currency thus devaluing individual wealth.  Either option will be devastating to the American taxpayer and future generations.  It is important to remember, government has no real money of its own, all the money it spends or commits comes from the taxpayer or is created out of thin air.

In the current system, economies require energy to grow and the “easy” energy is gone.  All of the easy to reach oil has been discovered and is being extracted.  We have not run out of oil but it is now more expensive to find and extract.  The same is true for the other commodities.  Cheap prices mask the problem and the current leaders have mechanisms in place to paint a rosy picture.  How unfortunate is short-term thinking!

2Kings 7:1 THEN Elisha said, “Hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the LORD: ‘Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.’”

This story reflects a “black swan” event.  The Samarians were living life as usual, expecting the linear progression of their lives to continue.  “Then suddenly” Our Heavenly Father evoked a change to the Syrians’ future.  HE told Elisha to expect the change to the local economy and it happened as expected by the prophet who heard the voice of THE LORD.  The Book of Job reminds us that there are larger cycles in the universe than what we can comprehend and that when sudden change comes, don’t be surprised.  Job had everything stripped away so that he could prepare for a greater ministry.  That method goes against what most believe is optimum but we must shed the counterfeit realities that we have created in order to clear the way for Our Heavenly Father’s plan.

Below is a little humor to offset the dismal financial picture described above:

As people attempt to protect their life savings, they are constantly bombarded by market noise of where to invest.  Although I do not believe in the “all in” investing strategy, I do believe in increasing the weighting of investments toward precious metals and related stocks.  The following video clip provides perspective on gold versus other investments:

 

Cause and Effect at Two Levels

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Most of us understand cause and effect at the natural level.  If you release a ball, it will drop thus reaffirming the law of gravity.  We count on this natural law daily and never give it another thought.  This and other physical laws were placed into existence and were in effect before man’s discovery and understanding of the detailed nature of these laws.  The laws of lift and thrust allow birds and airplanes to supersede the law of gravity.  One law did not negate the other, it performs under different criteria.  Once you relax the laws of lift and thrust, gravity becomes dominant again and propels you back to earth, hopefully with a smooth landing.

The same is true with mankind.  If you eat, hunger goes away.  If you drink water, your thirst is satisfied.  The list goes on.  In the area of economics, if you invest wisely and understand the macro-trends, your wealth will increase.  If you live debt free (or near debt free), you can take advantage of financial opportunities that arise where others must simply sit on the sideline with regret.  Unfortunately, the church historically taught us that “money is the root of all evil” except of course if you give it to the church.  That premise caused many to become passive toward applying the law of cause and effect allowing those who are opportunistic to ruthlessly master the predictable and seize control over passive and unmotivated masses.  The tragic result is that the masses promote servitude to those in control and are robbed of blessing others through the laws of God.  All of their resources go toward “keeping the lights on and food on the table” with nothing left over to help brothers and sisters in need.  It is the ministry of “me and my four and no more”.  This level of cause and effect works the same for everyone, good or evil.  The question is often posed: “Why do those evil men seem to financially prosper?”  It is because those evil men have mastered cause and effect at the lower level.  However, these people are not aware of the higher level of cause and effect.

There is a second and greater dimension of cause and effect and very few people truly understand the way it works or its impact on each of us.  This level is associated with the laws of God.  There is a universal equilibrium of the Spirit of God that is not subject to man’s manipulation.  It’s the bigger picture that most do not see.  The laws of God arm and protect the virtuous and disarm and judge the ruthless.  Nobody operates outside this equilibrium which operates in all dimensions because Our Heavenly Father designed it that way.

The law of faith operates in this second dimension and supersedes the lower dimension.  In 1984, I was stricken with Hepatitis A by eating tainted shellfish. Due to my abuse of the laws of rest and nourishment, I was susceptible to the disease.  As it turned out, I had the worst case my physician had seen and he wanted to hospitalize me.  He told me to contact my employer and let them know that I would be unable to work for a minimum of six weeks, probably eight.  I was devastated.  In the lower dimension of cause and effect, I was destined to six weeks of recovery as my body fought the virus.  However I sought Our Heavenly Father concerning the situation.  HE spoke to me and told me to study and dwell on HIS Word concerning healing.  I did just that since I had nothing else to do and nobody was interested in seeing me due to the health risk.  In twelve days I was healed and back to work on day fifteen.  This higher dimension overruled the lower dimension.

Love operates in the cause and effect realm.  Have you ever wondered how some people just seem “lucky”?  Have you ever asked why some people take an obscure path that seems destined to failure but then end up being abundantly blessed?  These people are probably operating in this second level even though they may be unaware of its operation.  This level cannot be manipulated for self interests because it is activated by something outside of effort.  I am convinced that Love is the activator of this dimension.  Love cannot be bottled up and sold, manipulated, or controlled by the ruthless.  I am also convinced that most people are unaware of this dimension and unable to consciously operate in this dimension.

Doing, thinking, and working has no entrance into this dimension.  The entrance is in your prayer closet, your tabernacle.  This higher dimension is a relational dimension with Love providing the conductance pathway of hearing.  Division causes the door to be locked.  In the following passage, Jesus reminds us that you must forgive before entering in:

Matthew 6:12  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (from the Lord’s Prayer)

Matthew 6:14  For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

Matthew 6:15  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

We must operate in restoration rather than condemnation and division.  As we walk and function in love, this higher dimension opens up and we are able to enjoy a closer relationship with Our Heavenly Father.  As you pursue a walk in this realm, there is no limit to the blessings available to you.

Healing an Issue of Blood

Mat 9:20-22 “… a woman who was diseased with an issue of blood for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, if I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take comfort, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed from that moment.

Luke, a physician, goes into more clinical detail in the case.

Luke 8: 43-48 “And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. “Who touched me?” Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.” But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”

When Jesus saw her He was aware of her physical problem of uterine hemorrhage and He was also aware of her soul problem of mental anxiety. After all, she was bleeding for 12 years with no assurance from her physicians that she would ever be cured. Jesus also recognized the faith and her humility of her spirit. By telling her to go in peace, He comforted her in knowing that she was healed completely in body, soul and spirit and that she would no longer have to fear a recurrence of her abnormal uterine bleeding.

And when you pray,,,

Mat 6:5 “.And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth; they have received their reward in full”.

Mat 6:6 “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you”.

Notice there was no great theatric display by Jesus that a healing had taken place. Not even His disciples were aware of it. The woman prayed in silence But Jesus knew that power (δύναμις dynamis) had gone out from Him and the power went to a person.

Notice, also, that the woman never even touched Jesus, only His garment. Did the garment she touched have an intrinsic healing power? No. It was probably a woolen garment Jesus wore as a priest when ministering to people. Jesus was ministering under Mosaic Law and a woolen garments was required while ministering to the people. After the death of John the Baptist, Jesus became the high priest but He was not recognized as such by either the Sanhedrin or by the majority of the people. He was only recognized in his human form. His power as the Son of God was hidden by his human body. As a servant his glory was covered by a fleshy body. As Jehovah-Rophe, healing power radiated from his human body and was captured by his garment in such a way as to bring about a healing in the woman who touched it. We know that the healing power came from within him because He said He felt “the power go out”. Where did it go? It went into an area outside of Jesus’ body where the cloak was worn and into the woman’s body when she touched the garment. The space surrounding Jesus contained the same energetic power that came out from within Jesus’ body. It was a continuum of energy from within Jesus.It carried specific information that brought about healing and had specific direction… no one else was healed.

Jesus turned and saw her

In Greek (εἶδον eidon) means to see, perceive with the eyes or senses, experience any state or condition

When Jesus looked at the woman what did He see? What was it about her condition that was distinctly different than others who were crowding around him? What did He experience about her present state of being? What information did Jesus’ brain record that came through his eyes, and was transmitted neurologically to His visual cortex in the occipital lobe of his brain? Was there a signal coming from the woman’s body that Jesus could sense? Was there something about this woman that related to the Kingdom of God? After all Matthew generally presented Christ as King and the theme of his writing was about the Kingdom of God.

He saw a woman who had uterine bleeding on the physical level. On the emotional or soulish level, He saw that she was discouraged because of her chronic illness. On the spiritual level He saw her faith. He recognized that she had confidence that she could be healed by Him.

The act of seeing her was not a prerequisite by Jesus to heal because she came up from behind him. Even Jesus asked the question “Who touched me?” Actual healing occurred at the moment the garment was touched.

Jesus attributed her healing to her faith. In effect, Jesus was saying that the physiologic process of healing was affected by a discrete spiritual entity of faith; that the immeasurable spirit affected the measurable body. By being healed of uterine bleeding she demonstrated that this relationship held true.

Energy Within the Body

Energy exists in all living beings, both plants and animals. It has been known as chi in China, ki in Japan and prana in India.(Editors. Energy Conversion. Volume 18 ed. Chicago: Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc., 1998; Hendrix ML. Encarta Encyclopedia Microsoft , 2000)

In traditional Chinese medicine internal energy, chi, flows in channels called meridians. (Kaptchuk T. The Web That Has No Weaver, NY: Congdon & Weed, Inc., 1983). Chi moves as an electric current in channels with specific velocity and direction. Electromagnetic energy in these channels is organized as codes of information that are conducted throughout the body and beyond. Subtle electromagnetic signals originate in the body, each with its own specific site of origin. For example, the uterus has an electromagnetic signal that originates in uterine tissue and is conducted to the skin where it can be detected on the bladder meridian, on the outside part of the foot. The lining of the uterus, the endometrium is detected on the meridian located on the inner part of the thigh. (Speckhart VJ An Electrodermal Analysis of Biological Conductance, 2002). For details of how to detect these signals see: Electrodermal screening.www.servias.org

In the created realm everything vibrates. The following diagram shows the progressively increasing frequencies of structures in biological specimens that are able to be detected by electronic instruments. There are other dimensions of structure yet to be discovered which cannot be measured directly at all. It is theorized that space time is not just 4 dimensional but 10 dimensional, the remaining 6 dimensions being too small to measure.

The following signals can be detected in animal subjects:

This diagram shows that waves are derived from a variety of sources radiating throughout the body. These waves can be measured as oscillating (+) and (-) electrical charges that combine to make more complex waves such as subatomic particles, atoms, molecules, cells, tissues and organs. Each of these wave forms produce signals that produce low levels of energy or subtle energy. The energy radiates from discrete sites of origin in the body through discrete electromagnetic pathways to detection sites on the skin. Ancient literature described these energy pathways as meridians. Signals in the skin can be detected by electronic means. In the body, waves have a positive and negative charge. As a result of being closely packed, electrical charges interfere with each other. The net result is a wave that projects information from a specific site in the body to the surface of the skin and beyond.

Each electromagnetic code conveys information that affects every other electromagnetic code. This means that every electromagnetic signal in the body is continually affected by every other electromagnetic signal. As an example, your left ear is always electromagnetically aware of your right big toe. Every electromagnetic signals in space-time affects every other electromagnetic signal to some degree.

In the present case faith in Jesus Christ affected the uterus and was one of the essential elements needed for healing. Is this one of the 6 dimensions of creation yet to be recognized?

Light

When we use the term “light,” we are referring to types of electromagnetic waves which stimulates the retina of our eyes. Visible light consists of a spectrum of wavelengths which range from approximately 700 nanometers to approximately 400 nanometers. Expressed in more familiar units, the range of wavelengths extends from 7 x 10-7 meter to 4 x 10-7 meter. This narrow band of color consisted of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet waves.

Electromagnetic fields surround plants and animals. These fields represent electromagnetic waves with a variety of frequencies. When the waves are in the visible spectrum they are perceived as color.

Color Vision

Color vision is the capacity to distinguish objects based on the wavelengths (or frequencies) of the light they reflect or emit.

Cone photoreceptors in the eye are sensitive to different portions of the visible spectrum. For humans, the visible spectrum ranges approximately from 380 to 740 nm. There are normally three types of cones according to their wavelength: short (S), medium (M), and long (L) cone types, also sometimes referred to as blue, green, and red cones. These are more active in daylight (Photopic). The other kinds of photoreceptor are rods which function at low levels light such as at night (scotopic). They are most sensitive to wavelengths near 555 nm. Between regions for rods and cones there is another region with both rod and cones (mesopic) that also sends signals to the retinal ganglion cells. Electromagentic waves from sources that emit or reflect light pass through the following structures: cornea> anterior chamber of the eye> lens>vitreous body>retina>retina ganglia>retinal nerve, crossing the midline>thalamus>optic radiations> visual cortex in the occipital lobe in the brain. Numerous hues of color can be distinguished by the brain.

Healing must have occurred during the daylight hours since we are told that he “saw the woman”. Since cones operate in daylight, Jesus’ cones were most active and capable to respond to color

Auras

Subtle energy within the body produces color. Once in the space outside of the body, subtle radiations of energy no longer have a restricted to meridian pathways as when they are within the body. They now appear in the peripheral field of vision as electromagnetic fields of color called auras.

Auras produced by subtle energy radiations of the body should not to be confused with Photographic auras. Photographic Auras are computer generated images of electromagnetic aura fields that are color coordinated electronically by sensors on a screen. A camera generated photo image of a person is superimposed on the colored electronic aura image generated by the background screen. The amplified image of the electromagnetic field is an artificial representation of the natural, low energy electromagnetic aura. It is not the same as the natural aura that can be visualized by the unaided visual apparatus of the normal eye. Much information has been gained by the study the photography of electromagnetically amplified fields especially in bio feedback training for various emotional disorders.

Most people cannot see auras because they are not disciplined to do so, but there are individuals who can see auras naturally, some more so than others. Young children are especially adept at seeing auras. Even in ancient cultures some drawings depict auras surrounding some painted subjects.

Jesus, as creator of the universe, was in complete command of all of the laws in His creation including the biological laws relating to the interpretation of aura patterns and colors and could instantly recognize everything about one’s body, soul and spirit.

Attributes of the Overcomers

The Holy Spirit described the healing of this woman to Matthew in such a way so as to reveal a Kingdom characteristic of those who are of the first resurrection, those who have the character of the Pattern Son, Jesus Christ.

Those who rule during this age will judge in righteousness. They will be able to see things hidden and will be able to see truth and not be deceived by the deception of words or actions. They will be able to look at the total man and determine in his true state. He will not be able to hide anything.

When Jesus looked at Nathanael he saw from afar an aura of an Israelite in whom there was nothing false.When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here is a true Israelite, in whom there is nothing false (no guile).” John 1:47. Without even talking to Nathanael, Jesus was able to determine Nathanael’s true character.

Those who are glorified in the Tabernacles Age will do even greater things.

12 Minutes to Understanding

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

The following video provides you with the understanding of how Wall Street and the financial community could contrive a way to extract taxpayer money and stay in business.

The Geithner Plan provides a back door to bank re-liquification without grossly affecting the stockholder, bondholder, or current bank management but shifting the bulk of the loss to the taxpayer without Joe the taxpayer realizing it.  I guess these guys think we’re all stupid and that assumption will turn out to be a strategic error.
