What You Wear Reveals Your Intentions and Helps Create Your Reality!

I apologize for the fact there have been no daily blog articles this week. My trip to the hospital on Monday morning for the removal of my 12 to 14 inch stint did not go as expected. After its removal I was not able to urinate and we were not able to leave the hospital until I could go. I will not bother with details, but after a brief consult with the doctor before heading home, that day became a very dark and challenging day for me mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. My recovery from this procedure began to improve mid week when my daughter discovered a scalar/rife frequency specifically designed to clear and help the urethra (you are not allowed to use the word “heal” in such situations by most governments of the world).

I also began my two hour per day scalar/rife protocol this week. Since the doctor on Monday made it clear he would be pushing for radiation and other procedures at my next appointment in early October, I am looking to provide positive evidence to offset his approach to my situation.

I was well enough for a quick trip to the bank and post office in town yesterday. While I was out, I noticed a significant number of vehicles parked at the local Legion. During a weekday afternoon this almost always signifies a funeral “tea” is being hosted. I also witnessed a group of about ten people walking from the parking lot of a nearby plaza towards the Legion. The plaza parking lot is often used when the Legion lot is full.

Having watched funeral events in our community for the last 24 years, both as a pastor, leading the event and as a outside observer, with the exception of seniors, the clothing generally worn to funerals tends to be what I would describe as more casual. This was not true of the group of ten I saw yesterday. The men were all in dark suits and the women all wore dresses. This fact caught my immediate attention.

My mentor, Joel Bauer, teaches about the importance of our appearance and how we want to be perceived by others. What is the message we want to express, whether we are going to a funeral, to school, to church, or anywhere else?

We seem to live in a culture which has reacted against the idea, people “dress up” to be seen. This is self-centred selfish approach to life is not what God intended for us. God is looking for to align our lives with pure, selfless love (holiness). What as been lost, in the move to “casualness,” is the importance of understanding how we present ourselves is a reflection of what we believe about ourselves, in relation to God and others.

Does what we choose to wear fit the situation we are in? What do our clothes say about our intentions? It does not matter if your best does not measure up to someone else’s standards of best. If it is your best, then you know, God knows it and it will energetically make a difference in your life and how you feel about yourself. Don’t allow anyone to look down on your best and negatively impact you. Your intentions are the force that will move you forward. What you wear and how you look is far more important than most people realize, because it reveals your intentions and helps create your reality!

Make Music in Your Heart to God!

I spent some time this looking for appropriate songs to fit the 122th anniversary service of the congregation I pastor. In my search I discovered a hymn book from the Holiness Movement Church in Canada. This denomination joined the Free Methodist Church in 1958, the same year The Gospel Workers Church joined the Church of the Nazarene, which our congregation is connected with.

This hymnal was published in Ottawa, Canada in 1902. My copy is a words only edition, so I have no idea what the tunes are to most of the songs. In fact I do not recognize most of the songs. More than 100 of the 600 songs in the book are connected to the concept of holiness in some way. I did not take the time to calculate it out, because of how the layout of our current hymn book is set up, but the percentage of holiness related songs is significantly less than this old Hymn Book was.

I understand, in many locations today, hymns have been replace by worship style songs and choruses. The intent of the old hymns was to provide a context for building a strong Biblical foundation for faith and spiritual growth in the lives of those who had said YES to the relationship with God through His Son, Jesus. We have been working through our computer software used for congregational singing to remove the “thees” and “thous” in the hymns, while including some choruses which have meaningful and Biblical content.

I personally desire for the Holy Spirit to be the one who engages and lifts the hearts of those present and not a pattern of emotional manipulation to provide a sort of “spiritual high.” In reading through some of the hymns from the Holiness Movement Church in Canada I was impressed at how the full experience of holiness was being built out. If someone was paying attention to the words they would have a better understanding that holiness truly is “the perfect alignment of our life with pure, selfless love,” as demonstrated by Jesus.

Music is an important part of our connection to God. Psalm 100:1-5, “Shout for joy to Yahweh, all the earth. {2} Worship Yahweh with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. {3} Know that Yahweh is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. {4} Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. {5} For Yahweh is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” Make music in your heart to God!

Are You Enjoying Perfect Alignment With Pure, Selfless Love?

When you find your self in a challenging situation or period of time, one of your best options is simply to keep your mouth shut and say nothing. Your words are powerful and one of the devil’s most powerful weapons against you resides about one inch below your nose. Be careful what you say. Our words reveal what’s in our hearts and also what is being stored in our subconscious mind. You will often hear someone say, “I didn’t mean what I said!” Chances are they did mean it in the moment and are now regretting having said it.

If we are honest, we likely all have been guilty of this at some point in our life. I am seeking to grasp a better understanding of what it means “to be holy as God is holy” (1 Peter 1:16). I suspect the concept of holy and holiness is very foreign in our culture today. When the Holy Spirit gave me a specific meaning of the this concept a few months ago, I began to use it, but never really understood the depth of its meaning. In Isaiah 6 we read of the prophet’s profound encounter with a holy God and the impact this experience had on him and his life. I suspect most people today who have said YES to the relationship with God through His Son, Jesus have no concept of what happened there in the temple with Isaiah and do not relate to what connecting to the holiness of God is really like.

I invite you to begin to reflect on the concept of what “holy” and “holiness” looks like in practical terms of bringing your life into “perfect alignment with pure, selfless love” as demonstrated by Jesus. No wonder Isaiah cried out, “Woe is me.” As you consider how to consistently exercise this concept, you will realize it is impossible by your own strength and effort. It must be a work of God in us and it requires some specific actions on our part. Remember Hebrews 12:14 tells us, “Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord” (NIV). Are you enjoying perfect alignment with pure, selfless love?

Contribute Towards Achieving an Energetic Tipping Point for Spiritual Growth!

I was challenged by a friend to read and respond with my thoughts on the book, “The Psychology Of Spiritual Growth.” At his point I am not recommending you go out and purchase this book as I just did. For me, I am constantly seeking to apply science and the truth of God’s Word to find application and connection and so this challenge was one I could not run away from.

In all honesty the words written on the inside page before the title page make me think, I may just set this project aside until I am well on my recovery path from my upcoming surgery. The initial words which greet you are as follows.

“Many readers will complain that this book and the others in the series are too negative. These are the people who insist that reality in the human world is positive. They insist on looking out at the world through rose colored glasses that prevent them from seeing life as it actually exists. These readers do not want their illusions disturbed and will not like this series of books because these books are about reality.

Other readers know in their hearts that reality is very negative. They look out at the world and see that something is wrong. They will use these books to confirm what they already know in their hearts to be true. They will experience these books as very positive.”

I, for one, choose to view this world in a positive manner. I do not deny the presence and power of evil and spiritual darkness. In fact my sermon for May 5, 2019 addresses the spiritual battle that exists in this world. (This will be live streamed at www.SayYEStotheRelationship.com at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time – replay of the message will follow). What I do choose, is to SEE the ability for people to Shift their mindset for transformational freedom and expression, Elevate their energetic/spiritual awareness, so they can Enhance the quality of their life, live their purpose and fulfill their destiny.

All this is made possible because of what Jesus did for us on the Cross of Calvary. We have the potential to live in perfect alignment with pure selfless love (holy lives) in this world. That is not a matter of living with rose coloured glasses on, but with a perspective that light dispels darkness, an universal truth.

There is value in helping people to live in a place of freedom, where reality reflects what can be, because of what Christ has done. Will everyone accept this? Not likely. But if enough people do, there will be an energetic tipping point reached that will impact our world in a positive way and that is what I am seeking to bring to reality. How about you? Contribute towards achieving an energetic tipping point for spiritual growth!

The Deception of Choices: Lifting Limiting Lies Leading to a Liberating Life!

My journey over the last 9 years has brought people, resources and connections into my life that have shifted my mindset in ways that have opened the door to new levels of information and truth I had not been privy to before. I am thankful and grateful to God’s answer to a passionate prayer for that to become a reality in my life. I am also thankful and grateful for each one who has come into my life and become a part of my journey. Some were there for only a short time, others have passed on to a different plain of existence and others continue to be a part of these exciting times of growth and discovery.

I am also thankful and grateful for those who have accepted the challenge to come along on this journey with us. I believe those who made a different choice are the ones who have missed out on the blessings God is desiring to provide. Hosea 4:6 reminds us, “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. ‘Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.’”

The current vision statement of the church I pastor states in part that we are, “pursuing and proclaiming the universal truth of holiness (Perfect Alignment of Your Life with Pure, selfless Love) with the power of God’s Holy Spirit in the energy of a new era. I believe that last phrase to be both an important and meaningful statement of truth. I believe there is no conflict between true science and God’s Word. There may be areas where we have not yet come to understand what we don’t know, but true science will reveal the truth in God’s timing.

I was reading yesterday in Athena Melchizedek’s book, “The Quantum Keys” and came upon the following scientific information in terms of the energy that is impacting our world. “It appears that planet earth and our solar system are being subjected to new higher frequencies of coherent light particles coming in from the sun and the galactic core. Simultaneously, our entire solar system is passing through a highly charged interstellar cloud of energy and the earth itself is party to this as she accommodates her energy field to allow this influx. If we think of this as an information transmission, then our planet and its inhabitants are in the process of receiving copious amounts of information from cosmic, galactic, and solar sources and our beloved planet is an intelligent, living, conscious entity receiving new information.”

When I read this portion to my daughter, her response was, “that makes sense.” She went on to explain that when she is live streaming our church service to a couple of different locations over the internet she needs the two internal fans inside her computer running at high speed, an eternal cooling tray running and a cold pack from the freezer to cool her computer down. She went on to say the transfer of large amounts of data create heat. The fact is we are being fed a lie in terms of the source of increasing temperatures by the powers that be on this planet. It is not just earth that is warming, our entire solar system is warming as a result of the outside data frequencies we are receiving. Increased carbon dioxide is not the problem, in fact it may potentially be the answer we need in these times.

From my perspective, it would be a good idea to seek to understand what information this data actually contains and then use it to the benefit of our world, rather than ignore or deny its existence. It is my desire to reveal the deception of the choices we are being offered through the media today. I want to lift these limiting lies so people can be lead to live a liberating life. By the way, the graphic with this article is of a book, I am beginning to work on.
