Vexen, for some reason, I totally understand where you’re coming from but I just have some doubts about the concepts you’re using, and the way you are using them. Could you please consider the following for a moment and be patient with all the rest of the questions for now.
How about if the one you’re calling God/Satan, was in fact only Satan, who the bible describes to be ‘the ruler and prince of this world’, and the angel of light. John 12: 31 “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
How about if Satan was in effect the powerful force that calls itself god over this realm of being. 2Corinthians 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
The king of this earth, since he is the sole ruler of everything around us, lays his hands on any type of scripture, that recounts a real experience with the true Devine, and spoils it, corrupts it, fills it with confusion and controversy so that we stay in bondage in his giant prison. This god who rules, is the god of all religious practices that spread hate and wars. This is why the bible calls him to be the one who comes as the angel of light: 2 Corinthians 11:14 “11 And why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! 12 And what I am doing I will continue to do, in order to undermine the claim of those who would like to claim that in their boasted mission they work on the same terms as we do.”
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
So, Paul is saying that those false apostles claim to love this church of Mecedonia, but Paul is going to demonstrate that they don’t.
“18 Since many boast according to the flesh, I too will boast. 19 For you gladly bear with fools, being wise yourselves! 20 For you bear it if someone makes slaves of you, or devours you, or takes advantage of you, or puts on airs, or strikes you in the face. 21 To my shame, I must say, we were too weak for that!” So, Paul is saying that Christians (be it pastors, missionaries, church elders, etc) who treat you in a non loving way, while boasting of their ‘fleshly’ deeds and work, are false christians. Paul affirms that he is not saying this because he is not a missionary, a preacher, an elder and so forth. On the contrary, he said that if he wanted to boast with work of the flesh like them, he would be the best because he has done greater works than all of them combined. But what he is trying to explain here is that ‘works’ should never be a criteria for faith, and thus, any christian who claims that this is the case, and who judges the others based on this criteria are the children and the disciples of Satan.
This religious voice within and outside the church, who accuses, judges, claims full obedience from his followers and threatens with toil, hardship and death, is not the voice of true God, Paul said. This is the voice of the false god, the ruler of this world and his disciples.
This god who is “the accuser of the brethren” the bible says, is the one who accuses us day and night for not being perfect, while fuelling our bodies/brains with inexplicable desires. Revelation 12:10 “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”
Condemnation kills in that the more we’re condemned, the more we sin. Fear doesn’t free us from sin. Punishment doesn’t free us from sin. Only the unconditional love of God can free us from sin if we let it settle within us and change us.
The god of this world tries to fill us with fear each time we want to reach to the spiritual reality, to the true Devine, for help. Satan; the god of this physical dead reality, is the one who accuses us of being false each time we look at the revelation of the true nature of God, as being pure love and mercy. He is the graffiti expert who spends all his free time, drawing filthy pictures over the spotlessly clean spiritual image of the Devine.
So, how can we know the true God, I hear you ask?
In my opinion, which I share with several schools of thoughts, it’s impossible to know the Devine without looking inwardly. Scripture may help, but only if we learn how to dodge the enemy’s bullets and to skilfully avoid walking over the explosive ordnances. Think about it, the contrast between good and evil should be striking and total. As the bible say (John 1:5): “This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all”. Also, God doesn’t just have love. 1John 4:8 said: God is love: “8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.…” So, this should be our compass. Wherever we see an image (a poetic or prosaic in nature) describing God to be less than absolutely good, loving and merciful, we should then know where does this ugly image comes from, whether the image is in the scripture or elsewhere.
Jesus said in Luke 17:21 that the kingdom of God is within: King James Bible
“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
The Spirit of God lives dormant within you from the moment of conception. The more you are conscious of his existence in you, the more you are activating his power. You are in the Spirit when you’re in your brightest moments, happy and at peace. You are him, when you’re loving and compassionate. You are spirit filled when you’re in those generous moments of your life. When you create (even this website itself) you are using the energy that God has put in you. You are not creating like a machine does. You are creating for yourself but also fro the readers. You are being filled by a genuine concern for others.
You don’t know any of your readers, yet you have a keen desire to love unconditionally, and to try to reach out for others to help them learn from your mistake, thus avoid pain. This very desire that is deeply ingrained in you to the point where you probably aren’t conscious of it most of the time, is God in you. Even when the mind confuses between the truth and the illusion. Even if we end up hurting rather than mending, you are still genuine in your intention. The lack of efficiency cannot impact the unconditional love we have for our fellow human beings and the world around us. The confusion comes from our brain; from our worldly suit, whereas that genuine love comes from deep within; the Spirit of God who is the true you and me.
So, if we are God, how aren’t we that powerful? How is it that we’re still crawling like caterpillars or crashed like a beetle under a cartwheel?
This weakness we sense comes from the fact that we are not totally connected with the full Devine. Each of us is only one manifestation of him. We have his Spirit, yet our understanding (which requires worldly equipments through the body) blocks our full access to all the power that we have, inbuilt in us.
We are so consumed by what’s happening outside of us and around us, that we hardly know even our own thought processes and frame of mind, which is so obvious in comparison to the spiritual reality within us.
Knowing where to look exactly, usually helps us to spot unnoticeable realities. When the right scripture is combined with the right meditative techniques, this will bring the Spirit of Jesus into us. Why Jesus? Because He was the only human being who managed to have a full access to God, and therefore, became the full manifestation of God. The mission of his Spirit is therefore to help humanity achieve whatever He was able to achieve in his short life. By inviting him into our spirits and our lives, we are enabling him to instigate the rebirth of our spirits. The initial spirit who lived in us since birth is unfit for the change, for the new life. He grew too dormant and too lazy that it will never sustain the new experience. The first thing that should take place in a believer’s life is to be born again in the spirit, thus a new spirit, a new godly energy, a new heavenly power is put within us to sustain our new life of faith.
My advice is if ever you decide to go back seeking, please don’t do it through planning to read the whole bible for two main reasons: first, because you’ll probably give up after a few chapters as the bible is not a book but rather a whole library with many books.
The second reason is because of the strong satanic influence on the world, we are discouraged from leading our bibles studies ourselves until we receive God’s anointing. Proverbs 3:5 said “ Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
So, my recommendation is to use ministers such as Joseph Prince, Creflo Dollar and Copeland ministries either through attending their churches physically or through reading their literature and listening to their sermons. Their devotionals and sermons are free of charge in youtube. In terms of doctrine, Creflo Dollar I find, is the most methodical preacher who explains to you exactly what you need to know, in order to make up your mind whether to believe or not. Sermons are usually based on verses taken from the scripture. When a verse comes up during a sermon, you could pause the video, then look up the verse, and the other few verses around it or the whole chapter, so that you don’t miss the context.
All the best,
