Believing in God pt. IV




Elihu in Job 37:5 says it perfectly: “God thunders with His voice wondrously,
Doing great things which we cannot comprehend.”

Soloman writes in Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.”

Later in the “Post-Gospel” books, the disciples are stressing the importance of being humble. They spoke to God through Jesus.  I would take their words with the utmost respect.

I don’t think there is a superlative in the dictionary that could begin to describe God.  It’s odd because deep inside, I feel that our spirits know who/what God is.  Why? Because I believe we’ve met before.  This was probably long before I was born on this planet.  Which makes me wonder if there’s another reason why the older you get, the wiser you get?  Was I given ethereal advice before I was born?  Was this advice tucked away in my “Junk DNA”?

I don’t know.

Webster describes God as:

1. (in Christianity and other monotheistic religions) the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being.

2. (in certain other religions) a superhuman being or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity.


In New Age thought, God is often referred to as Source, Source Energy, Love, it gets vague and goes downhill from there.  Do not listen to any one who makes either or both of these two statements.

1. We are all God.  (No. We were created in his likeness. If we were created we can’t be the creator)  My mother may have given birth to me but that doesn’t make me my mother or my father. (OTOH, I do have her mitochondrial DNA)

2. “You don’t die”. (Surely you shall not die ~ Satan) Yes you will die.  You will leave this realm. this Paradise or this Battlefield. Your spirit will depart your decomposing body and be “recalled” where you and our maker will go over your life experience.  Should you fear that day? (Judgment day) I say no.  I openly preach that you fear today.

Let me keep this short.  Humans are too smart to believe that our world, bodies and eco system are a coincidence. If you knew 1/10th of the anatomy and Physiology a Joe stethoscope doctor knows, you would realize how amazing this body was created.  I’ll go so far as to say it’s smarter than Porsche Technology. (And less expensive). The design of the human body is that of a deity.

Let’s just say that your body is truly built like a fine temple.  It has a central heating/cooling system called your hypothalamus.  It comes with its own pest control system called “White blood cells”.  It has it’s own Brita filters for your blood, lungs and eyes.  The point I’m making is: “The designer had to be a deity”.  As much as I like the Ancient Alien Theory, (I believe  it serves one purpose.)  It debunks Darwinian rubbish.  If man evolved from hominids, why did apes lose their body hair only to require clothing to stay warm to survive?  The theory debunks its self.  Unless the evolution of man was to make an Armani suit fit better.

What is God?

God is The creative entity that is so powerful Moses himself was not allowed to see God.  God Himself said to Moses that to view him would kill Moses.  So God did a biblical “Fly by” so Moses could feel God’s “essence” in Exodus chapter 34.  In the Charlton Heston Movie “The 10 Commandments” Heston comes down from Mt. Sinai looking as if he had aged 100 years. In Exodus 34:29 It describes Moses’ face as “shining”.  Who knows? Exposure to Radiation?  I’ll call it a righteous glow.

God would later manifest himself in the Human form of Jesus. “The Christ”.  Jesus would work miracles effortlessly.  I think Jesus was playing with us at times as on occasion he would touch someone or wave his hand and they would be instantly healed.  Other times Jesus would spit in the dirt, mix it into mud, rub it in the blind man’s eyes and sent him to the pool to wash it out.  As the blind man did as ordered, his site was restored.  I wonder if Jesus, with a sense of humor looked at his disciples, smiled and said: “Hey guys; watch this”?

Love God (“For even the Demons Believe and tremble” ~ James 2:19)

Believing in God Pt III



What do we really know about our material Life?  We see stuff, hear stuff, feel stuff, smell stuff and we can taste stuff.  We develop our belief in reality based on experience through these 5 physical senses.  Those are physical senses.  We also have the sense of memory and many of us are blessed with the ability of future awareness.  In the old days there were those called prophets.

But Dogs can hear things we can’t hear so how reliable are your ears?

Digital cameras and binoculars that detect infra-red heat can see things we cannot see.  Objects do exist outside of the visual spectrum.  So how reliable are your eyes?

If you hold your nose, your taste buds will not receive the stimulation that comes from a piece of bacon.  What good are your taste buds?

Ever try smelling something with a cold?  Dogs can smell scents we cannot.

I touched a very cold Ice cube.  It was sticky.  I came back an hour later and the same cube had turned to warm water.  My hand felt wet and warm.  A cute furry animal climbed up on my leg I reached down to pet it as it felt like a kitten.  It bit me as it was a squirrel.  Even if I touched it and saw it, my senses were wrong.

The use of our 5 senses are tools of Science.  As you can see, our senses can deceive us. Science is guilty of practicing the paradigm that “If we cannot prove the existence of something using our 5 senses; it does not exist”.  Translated: “If science cannot prove it, it only conveys our ignorance”.  Yet linear equations cannot explain the concept of infinity.  Science has a symbol for it but not an explanation.  We are in a sense; running a race with no track or finish line.

“Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” ~Macbeth act 5.5

Stay with me.

The entire concept of infinity makes what our conscious minds call matter or reality seem like pure fiction.  Until you can explain the concept of infinity we’re no more real than characters in a dream or a movie that possess free will.  Matter becomes as legitimate as time. Time is a tool invented by man to measure progress.  This world, this galaxy this universe is all relative. It appears spacious and to describe infinity; endless.  We’ve created rules or “Mores” to try to make sense of our existence.  We feel the need to bring meaning to our lives.  Does everything have meaning or a purpose?  Yet in the scope of the universe we are less than an Atom (not Adam)However; to an insect, we are giants, maybe even gods their eyes cannot see either. We certainly have the power of life or death over the entity.

There have been two profound moments in the history/memory of this plane of existence.  The first being the 10 commandments given to Moses by the Architect of our existence.  The 2nd being the physical manifestation of the Architect saying the two most important commandments were to love your neighbor as you would yourself and to love the Architect, Creator and Master (who is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient) with your heart, mind and soul.  Our God!

But HOW?

How can I love something I can’t begin to imagine with my heart, mind and soul? What is this “soul” you speak of?  What is the verb “to love”?  The key is to use your imagination supported by trust.  If we are living in a truly grand illusion that exists in a location surrounded by an abstract concept called infinity then perhaps reaching out with our inner feelings and making an appeal with our outward actions we are using a mystical noun called “faith”.

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” ~Hebrews 11:1.

Maybe, just maybe, we are living in a spiritual world that is cloaked by a material camouflage.  Yet we’re earthbound until we are called out of this existence?

Until next time

Live spiritually



Believing in God Part II


The Bubble theory

In sports there is a term referred to as “being on the bubble”.  This is different from the bubble in economics.  Let’s use Baseball as an example.  On the first day of spring trainging, anyone with potential or an invitation can show up for try outs.  Soon the players are cut down to what is called a 40 man roster.

As time goes by; the players that can’t “make the cut” get red tags in their lockers.  They’ve been cut from the team.  The object of spring training in baseball is to cut the squad down to the best 25 players on the field.  The problem is there is often 28 – 29 that are really good.  So the extra 3 – 4 are called “Bubble players” or “They’re on the Bubble”.  Actually you could have 6 – 7 players that are on the bubble and the manager has to decide who stays and who gets cut.

If you agree that your spirit does not die when your physical body dies, then one must ask the question, where does it go?   It’s not unreasonable to think that your spirit can mainfest as an orb of energy that gets drawn back to the light.  But all energy has its own wave length.  (Hz)

High vibrational creatures are seen as good or “Light Workers”. (Mother Thersea, Stephen Covey etc…) While low vibrational creatures are considered “dark workers”.  (Joseph Stalin, Charles Manson etc…).  So do both orbs enter the same realm of existence?  My guess is that we have what is referred to as a life review.  You get to the lobby of the ethereal world and you get to play “This is Your Life”.

I think it’s at this point that the high frequency souls. are seperated from the low ones.  However, what about the bubble creatures?  Where do they go?  Is there a re-education camp for spiritual orbs? Or does the judge of your life review make executive decisions.  I believe this is where re-incarnation comes into play.

If you’re a Christian and you’ve done the “Stuff” Jesus said to do, I guess you would be entering door #1 to pardise.  If you had heard the word and struggled with it, as most of us will, I think you fall onto the “bubble” category.  Think about it, the Thief on the cross got to go to heaven for saying: “He’s(Jesus) done nothing wrong.  He doesn’t deserve to be crucified with us”. (Or something of that nature).

Quote from the New American Standard Bible

One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!” But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.”  And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”  ~ Luke 23:39

So there was room in “Paradise” for the felon that felt bad about Jesus having to die an unjust death.

I ask: “How many of these will there be on judgement day?”  How many of those who were baptized, repented, confessed their sins, and asked for forgiveness, yet went on to live sinful lives will Christ remember?  On the other hand, how many really bad guys in prison that came to know Jesus through the Bible yet didn’t go through the Christian rituals of Baptism, repentance, etc… will Christ have pity on.

This is something that most churches will never tell you. “Jesus can save whomever He wants to”.

Perhaps, if you’re on the bubble, you get thrown back like a fish too small?  Perhaps a loving God will give you a chance to make it or brake it.  In the first century Re-incarnation was a commonly accepted idea.  Why else would Jesus ask Peter: “Who do they say I am”? Why did Jesus say: “Elijah did come but they didn’t recognize him.”

As a human who has preached the word of God in a “Church of Christ” it is my duty to tell you that no matter how much you gave to the church or how many services you attended, God knows your heart. The Bible says that you need to be Baptized in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. You need to repent of your ways. You need to beg forgiveness AND forgive those who have sinned against you. Above all you must believe that Jesus died for your sins.  If your head isn’t there, He has the power to say “Welcome home” or “Back you go”. (This is my opinion, but I don’t think it’s up to you)

Until tomorrow,

Live Spiritually




The introduction.

OK, if you don’t have a really open mind.  You’re not going to find this post very amusing so go watch the Food Network NOW.  GO GET OUT. I think you’re missing Bobby Flay.

Anyway, reason #1

I was brainwashed  and something

happened to me at the age of 4. 

Let me tell you a story of what happened to me and you have my word, it’s all true.

At the age of 4 I had an out of body experience.  To be honest it was an “entering body experience”.  A physical awareness of my body from the spiritual point of view.  But seriously how profound could an experience by a 4 year old be?  That’s a fair question.

I remember it as if it were yesterday.  My mom, probably as a chance to nurse a bad hangover, would send us kids to church every Sunday. I learned later (When I was 6) that the girl liked to party all the time (As in the Eddie Murphy song).  This explains my mom’s death when I was 11.  Hey my baseball glove is almost twice that age.

But I remember those 1950’s folding chairs.  We sat in the back on the left side (facing the pulpit) This young kid (me) remembers looking down at my little four year old hands and fingers and becoming aware that I could make them open and close at will. I felt separated from my extremities.  After years of trying to figure this out; I believe it was my spirit connecting with my frontal cortex.

I believe in the silver cord theory that we are connected to God/Source energy by a silver spiritual umbilical cord that is invisible to the human range of the light spectrum.  For that matter, there could be an entire universe or multiple universes that are invisible to our eye’s light spectrum.

I told you at the beginning that you needed an open mind.

Does this explain ghosts?  I don’t know.  I think ghosts are real, but they’re probably spirits in a glitch.   Am I saying God is imperfect?  Not at all. God has given us free will.  We can be as stupid as we want.  God allowed Cain to kill his brother Able out of jealousy.  Does that make God an evil God, or does it make death less important?

It’s my belief that God showed me the spiritual aspect of my life, (It just happened to be in a church I can vividly remember when I was 4) Plus that experience was followed up by 13 years of threats of Hell, Fire and brimstone/damnation.

That’s all for today.  Let me know if you’ve had an out of body experience or if you have reason to believe God exists.  I’ll talk to you tomorrow.  God willing.




Today we celebrate the Birthday of one the masters of personal development. Stephen R. Covey.  Covey authored several great books but none of them came close to the life changing book: “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”. Many people have “rock bottom” experiences.  I was in that position once.  I was thrown from a “cushy” 6 figure income into having my own business and having to work at something I wasn’t really trained well to do.  The cushy job was “marketing” surgical cameras.  The hard job was selling them for a profit.


One day in “Office Depot” I was picking up a ream of paper for my printer. I had just suffered a bad month.  So I browsed through the book/audio book row.  I was looking for some business books or tapes, (preferably tapes so I could learn while I drove) and I left with the Simon & Shuster tape “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  When I was in Marketing, the Salesmen were averaging $250,000.00 a year.  I think I qualified for welfare.  As was the case when I tried to satisfy my ex-wife and ventured into Sales (with the use of my degree in business administration) I always got in at the end of the curve. I must mention that I majored in business because a Music degree was useless and I figured having a business background would help me once I made it in music.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective people is a common sense way of saying: “There are no shortcuts in life”. Or better yet: “Short cuts never work in the long run”.  It was a game changer for me.  I listened to the tape constantly.

I met Dr. Covey once. It went like this. I was standing in a long line.  I finally got to the front and said: “Thank you for changing my life” after we finished shaking hands.  Dr. Covey stood up and grabbed my hand again before I could leave and said: “No. Thank you son”.  It’s a memory I’ll take to the grave.

If you don’t have it. Buy the book and read every page.  Better yet; buy the CD and listen to it as many times as you can.

Happy Birthday Stephen.

God and Hard Times


Who am I to wonder where God is when I really need Him?  I pray daily.  Even if sometimes it’s just for the meal I’m about to eat.  I ask for forgiveness, Thank Him for the food and ask Him to bless it to the nourishment of my body, ask for blessed health and ask for financial opportunity in these troubled Obamanomics times.

We’ve all heard the expression: “It seems like my prayers don’t even make it to the ceiling”.

I feel that way now.  It’s been a LONG time since I’ve had that telepathic clairsentient message from God.  It’s been even longer since I’ve had that spontaneous answer to my prayer.  I’ve had prayers answered, PHYSICALLY, in less than 30 seconds.

When I was struggling and single, I had no bed to sleep on.  All I had was an old 6″ thick Futon to sleep on.  After a month of laying on this padding, I was waking to the 15th round of a fight with Mike Tyson every morning. I use to pray before I left my apartment every day.  One morning I prayed that God might bless me with a bed.  I was in so much pain from sleeping on this really bad futon it made prayer headlines (Front page, above the crease).  I got up off of my knees, went to leave out the front door and the apartment manager was there loading a fairly nice bed w/ box springs into a U-Haul trailer to take to the dump.  I said, I’ll take it. He was happy to dump it off on me.

30 seconds and my prayer is answered.

But what about Joseph? (Genesis 39:7-12)   God allows Joseph to suffer in prison for being righteous.  Joseph rejects Potiphar’s seductive wife and she got her vengeance by falsely accusing Joseph of raping her.

Joseph spends 8 years in prison for doing the right thing.  Of course the story has a happy ending (if you don’t mind spending 8 years in prison) as Joseph becomes the Prime Minister of Egypt. He uses his Clairvoyant talents to predict and help avoid the disastrous results of a draught in Egypt.

My point is this.  Stories like Joseph and Job are in the Bible to remind us that Life is not fair.  We have free will, but it’s only to show God where our heart’s lay.  We may think God is not fair.  Why make Abraham wait until he is 99 before he comes through on his promise to bless Sarah with a child?  Does that fall under the sense of humor category?

Sometimes God has blessed me when I didn’t deserve it.  Other times I’ve (Literally) shouted from a mountain top: “FATHER I NEED YOUR HELP”,  only to come down from the mountain to a phone call saying I was  being terminated. (After I had just saved a patent’s life)

The idea of God answering prayers stopped making sense to me several years ago.  Garth Brooks once said that the best prayers are the ones God doesn’t answer.  If that’s the case, I’ve got greatness coming my way.  I’m not comparing myself to Joseph, Job or Abraham, but I’ve asked and haven’t received in a long long long time.

Perhaps this is my challenge of attrition.  Things have seldom come easy for me.  I believe in God and The Son, Christ Jesus.  I believe the Holy Spirit can and has helped me.  I am a sinner and I’ve been a preacher;  But if You’re reading this Lord, I could use a blessing.

The Irony of Pleasing God


The Irony of Pleasing God
Don’t listen to the TV evangelist that says “Hey send God your money (to this address) and you’ll recieve blessing 10 fold.” ie, “Give to GET”. Let me point out a few observations.

1. In Genesis 4, “The Lord had regard for Abel and for his offering”. What was the next thing that happened to Abel? He died at the hands of his jealous brother Cain.

2. Genesis 39: Joseph denies Potopher’s wife. Keeping himself Holy and pleasing to the Lord. What happened? 9 to 13 years of Jail time.

3. Genesis 40: Joseph interprets the cup bearer’s dream. Result? 3 more years of Jail time.

4. Job . Need I say more?

The one lesson you can learn from the above examples is that life is not fair. Call it the price of free will. Yet we are still called to “give of our means”. It’s a demonstration of faith. Just don’t do it expecting a bountiful return on your investment. All things are from God. So you’re not really giving anything at all to God. You’re just giving back a portion of what He’s blessed you with. And I urge you to do so “cheerfully”.

Just don’t fall for the Media evangelist that’s selling you on a 1000% interest rate. This is probably the same evangelist that will sell you on salvation by repeating this simple prayer “insert the I believe prayer here” . Then go on with your sinful ways and claim that you’re “once saved and always saved”. Don’t fall for it.
