WHAT IF... Quoting: TREKWEBMASTER
What if everyone except the ones that "know" are craning their heads up towards the clouds hoping they "see" and "hear" the second coming of their Savior...
In the clouds, in the clouds...
Like it was said in Matthew 24:26:
23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25Behold, I have told you before. 26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
John 14:23 King James Version (KJV)
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
Coming in the clouds?
OR coming in the clouds of your HEART and MIND?
How would ego effect one's heart and mind?
How would realizing and "KNOWING" thy enemy affect one's heart and mind?
Jesus always referred to himself as the son of man. So if the Son of God is also the son of man and makes his abode in our hearts and informs our minds perfectly, then where exactly would this "second-coming" be???
Those with eyes to see and ears to hear. Those who don't have these things will need to wash their robes in the blood of the lamb...
Jesus made mention of referring to himself as the son of man so that he and Our Father in Heaven will make their abodes in our hearts which perfectly informs our minds...
Isn't this perfectly dove-tailed with the THIRD COVENANT?
And what is just as important is what's included inside our hearts and minds -- making their abode, is what's not included or EXCLUDED from same "abode."
What do you think this would do for the "institutionalized religions?" Would serve us to continue with those institutions if God and Jesus made their abodes inside our hearts and minds -- or would we even have use of any institutionalized religions?
The Rider on the White Horse is seen carrying a bow. But without arrows. This means and signifies a "covenant."
A PEACEFUL COVENANT.
Refer to this "covenant" in Isaiah 61.
The Self is destruction,
devoid of the destroyed and the undestroyed.
The Self is the auspicious moment,
Devoid of the auspicious and inauspicious time.
Thus, how can there be here substance
and the absence of substance?
The truth which is homogenous
is of the form of the sky.
Forever divested of all
and united to the Self -
the enlightened one is the All -
free and devoid of truth.
Thus, how can there be here life and death?
and how can there be any accomplishment
through meditation and lack of mediation?
All this is magic, like a mirage in the desert.
Only the absolute Self, of indivisible
and impenetrable form exists.
This is NOT about "Doing as thou wilt."
It's about DOING UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU!
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE versus Conditional Like.
Awareness = Spirituality.
No awareness = no Spirituality.
I believe also that he is here to teach and protect.
Above all, he is a protector of the innocent and the persecuted.
I also believe he is here to destroy the enemies of God.
He wages war in a way they can't defend against.
Nothing 'they' do works, their 'spells', for lack of a better word, bounce right off him, and what he does they simply can't defend because he uses them against themselves.
John 16 King James Version (KJV)
16 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
17 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?
18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.
19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?
20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.
26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.
29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.
30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?
32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
