Day 335: Anchor


 

29

What is an anchor?

Anchors are strong.

Anchors provide support.

Anchors hold vessels in place.

Anchors deliver content to the public.

Anchors can also prevent you from  moving when you need to move.

Anchors can become a hindrance.

Anchors left unsecured can cause you to unexpectantly drift off course.

Anchors reliant on others can distort the truth.

 

Anchors exert power in a team sport.

Anchors attract consumers in a retail structure.

Anchors are fixed similar to true North.

Placing the anchor in the wrong position can cost you the race.

Placing an anchor in quicksand can sink the ship.

 

What is my point?

For every use, there is a consequence for improper positioning.

You can have all the support, all the talent, and all the wherewithal in the world.

Yet, if you use an anchor out of position, you will sink instead of swim.

 

You do not place detergent in the water after all the dishes have been washed.

You do not paint the wall after all the pictures have been hung.

You do not prepare for the job after the candidates have been selected.

 

So often we hear people say, “I was in the right place at the right time”.

Conversely, they might say, “I was in the wrong place at the wrong time”.

In both of these statements, they were in a position to receive some obscure action or value.

 

Before I wrote my first sentence, I had to learn my first word.

Before I learned my first word, I had to be taught my alphabets.

Before I was taught my first alphabet, I had to learn how to talk.

 

Every development had an equally important precursor.

Without the first, there can be no latter.

Day 183: Distinguished Mirage: Cause & Effect


image

The true liar convinces self – the lie is real.
The lie becomes so real it covers the truth.
Breathing fire does not make you a firefighter.
Do not spew venom and call it a cure.
Venom is poisonous and can lead to an infection.
The antidote cures the infected.
Know the difference.
Then live it differently.
And, your life will be different.

Humans are funny creatures.
It is harder for us to admit our wrongs than to acknowledge there was wrongdoing.

Daily Prompt: The Patron Saint of Truth


Daily Prompt: A True Saint

10142015c

The Challenge: In 300 years, if you were to be named the patron saint of X, what would you like X to be? Places, activities, objects — all are fair game.

 

The Delivery:

The year is 2315. The day began like every day since 2215. The clock chimed. The birds chirped. The voices below sounded off one-by-one. Today is. The expected high temperature is. The precipitation is. There will be no further interactions between citizens and officials until quarantine has been lifted. Please remember to wear your masks of truth, your badges of honor, your crests of hope, and your shields of purpose. The official announcement of the day is over. Please begin your day as you normally would. And, remember we have our installation of the Patron Saint of Truth at noon. The festivities can be viewed remotely via direct stream or through your unembedded mobile devices. We look forward to seeing you there.

… (Noon the same day)…

As humans, we are constantly trying to live up to the promise of our ancestors.  Sometimes we succeed. Sometimes we fall short. In both cases, the underlining goal is to always remember our ancestors knew less than us, but gave more than us, just as we are expected to do for the next generation. We are to uphold our virtues so we honor their struggles, their advancements in science, their innovations in technology, and their successes in destroying the unrestrained pride genome deeply rooted in our culture for centuries.

Today marks a hundred years since EYHCS discovered the RNA molecules completing the genome for pride. EYHCS was known for stating, “At the brink of war the cellular composition just materialized as if an unseen force revealed it all before her eyes”. She refused to accept credit for the discovery. In fact, to this day if asked, she simply states, “it was divine intervention”. No one has ever been able to disprove her assertion, so it stands.

Now, as we install EYHCS as the Patron Saint of Truth, we revisit the words she delivered to the council 100 years ago today, ending the internal war of pride vs. greed.

“Council I have just left my lab. I did not even lock the door out of fear my delay could offset the tenuous balance between word vs. deed. I was hard at work looking for the final gene to break the code on pride. We have all watched our society’s infrastructure slowly fall into decomposition from the internal war of pride, grandstanding, and false goodwill. I made a promise to the creator to never fall into the trap. I ate from the leftovers of the citizens. I drink from the rivers of the Earth. I watched our citizens turn on each other. I watched our society crumb, but we never died. I turned down the politicians’ gifts of expensive jewels, five star dinners, and lavish vacations on the greatest beaches of this Earth. It was all a guise for me to stop my research. I refused. I knew as a society we could overcome the darkness settling in our community. Late this morning out of pure exhaustion I feel asleep in my lab while looking through a microscope. Awoken be a loud crash, there it was. The genome for pride loomed in midair. I quickly transcribed the data. I checked and rechecked the outcomes. I verified the genes, cells, and molecules composition. And confirmed, our divine creator had revealed the one thing, so many people had sought to hide in an effort to propagate a never-ending war. My lab assistants and I confirmed the data is real. No longer will we eat our own. No longer will we kill our own metaphysically or physically in hopes of advancing our own agendas. No longer will a dubious “I” usurp the collective. We have unmasked the secret to restore our ancestors’ original vision for our people. Going forward, we live by our words and our actions will affirm our truth on a single value: “first do no harm”.

And so, great citizens of this new utopia, we install EYHCS as the Patron Saint of Truth. EYHCS, refused to allow pride to win no matter the compensation thrown her way. Remember great citizens of the Earth, “Some things are not for sale”.

Day 233 – Garden of Eden on Earth


821

A beautiful mind can envision the Garden of Eden on Earth.

A pure thought can water the Garden of Eden on Earth.

Your heart will either grow into the Garden of Eden on Earth or shrink out of the Garden of Eden on Earth.

Knowing God and living for God are not the same as speaking about God and then living for you without God rooted in the soil of your beautiful mind.

Personal Picture
Taken 2/14/14

Prologue

Like most things in life, the first vision upon closer inspection bares light the more I focus.  Throughout the course of stepping out on faith it continues to manifest in ways I did not visualize.  I am grateful for recognition that too often a word from God is in part present, rooted in the past, and intended for the future.  This becomes truer with each passing day. 

When I began the HSCM series I held one focus that is shifting into something else entirely.  I do not know what God is going to do, but I glad I am a joined participant in crafting of this series.  Shortly after writing the introduction to this series I felt a strong need to seek confirmation on all that revealed itself.  There were many signs and wonders unfolding before my very eyes.  On one occasion, I spoke boldly and with authority to my mate about a Spirit of Cloaking in the atmosphere.  Not just in our home life, but in everything.  I spoke of a disruption to the communication channel causing strife, confusion, and all out hell in the lives of our circle of influence.  I recall saying, “I don’t know why I am speaking to you like this as I never have before, but the Spirit within me will not allow me to do otherwise”.  We talked for some time about what God had given me for this time.  I emphasized clarity in what we say, see, and do.  Throughout the week there were times the spoken word confirmed in my very household.  Unnecessary arguments over superficial issues now transformed into thoughtful conversations about our understanding of the issues.  We both made concerted efforts to check our response to the Word of God; it gave forth fruit, unimaginable and glorious fruit. 

Confirmation came from every direction.  One place that sets the foundation for this segment came from a post by a prophet who entered my life some time ago.  Her Facebook post discussed a teaching given to me during our School of Prophets course probably close to a year ago on the Manifestation of God and the Voice of God.  I admit when I read the post, there was a pause in my inner spirit.  I did not feel convicted, but I also did not feel fully assured of anything in the moment.  I left the post along after reading it several times and went on with my day.  Throughout the day I would revisit the post, each time not fully affected enough to like or comment.  Yet, the words of the post continued to flow in and out of consciousness.  As I ready for bed, I reread the post and two things came through the Voice of God.  I researched each individually.

The Manifestation of God is a concept in the Baha’i Faith referring to a name given to prophets.  Understanding that a prophetic declaration of God without the Voice of God is noise and not God’s truth.  

Now, the Voice of God or Ruha word of God at the core is considering the “breath of life” or “fresh wind” of God.  It is the word spoken from God to his people, and guides his prophets, seekers, and children.  The word or Ruha Word of God does not contradict the character of God, the word of God, and confirms itself outside of the silo experience.  It is important to note the Voice of God just like the Word of God always confirms itself as truth.  If it cannot be confirmed, it cannot be trusted.  This concept is the foundational authority for this series and my life.

Setting the Atmosphere

Holy Spirit, I welcome you to the table.  I seek your face, voice, guidance, tender provoking, and overwhelming presence for this moment and beyond.  I know nothing can interfere with the process or disrupt the message in your presence.  While I know who you are and who I am, I declare and decree the Ruha Word of God turns the light on the words to follow.  I declare and decree the message flows forth and out unobstructed.  I declare and decree that every subvert principality is forever banned from the table.  Holy Spirit, I give you charge to rule the hour, day, and the very second of my life, without restraint. Amen.

Commentary

Two scriptures came from the Voice of God this week.  I will address each as they came.

Ephesians 2:1-6

It wasn’t so long ago that you were mired in that old stagnant life of sin. You let the world, which doesn’t know the first thing about living, tell you how to live. You filled your lungs with polluted unbelief, and then exhaled disobedience. We all did it, all of us doing what we felt like doing, when we felt like doing it, all of us in the same boat. It’s a wonder God didn’t lose his temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on his own, with no help from us! Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah. (MSG)

For me, this passage refers to God’s unwavering design to ‘break every chain” of bondage in my life.  The enemy would have me believe “sin” continues to revoke access to Christ.  If indeed I am to believe Christ now sits on the right-hand side of God, and I do.  There becomes a centralized issue with holding on to a wall that no longer exists.  For one, any wall is indicative of a barrier.  Barriers either keep something in or keep something out.  Barriers exist literally or figuratively.  Barriers appear transparent or opaque.  Barriers come and manifest in many ways, but make no mistake barriers will always be an impediment to get access to something of value or protect against something harmful.  Let’s return to my original thought.  If we allow ‘sin’ to strangle our access to Christ than moving into understanding of who we are, becomes difficult to see. 

Let’s pause for a moment.  I do not know about you, but, I have no idea who you are or how you arrived here today, but glory to God that you have stumbled, crawled, or ran upon deliverance from the lie, sin has delivered to your life. 

THE ENEMY IS A LIE!

SIN HAS NO POWER IN YOUR LIFE!

SIN IS THE RED HERRING IN THE ROOM! 

I need a moment and perhaps you do too.  Take as long as you need before moving forward. {Pausing}

I am back.  The songwriter says, ‘the enemy cannot create life only God can do that”.  So the next thing I must test is what attributes belonging to God have I accredited to the enemy.  The answer today, NONEGet this if you get nothing else.  The last line of verse 6 says, “He picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah.”  Foretelling great things to come or more accurately already in play.  Wow, that is a word! (Pausing … still pausing, still pausing

There is something I understanding about the right-hand, there’s access, there’s power, there’s deliverance, there’s steady counsel, there’s unwavering rest and peace.  That is most definitely where I need to exist.  Thus, I declare, no moreNo more transference of my rights to a principality incapable of creating their own.

The next scripture that dropped into my spirit was Galatians 3:19 – 22

Gal 3:19-22

19 What then was the purpose of the Law? It was added [later on, after the promise, to disclose and expose to men their guilt] because of transgressions and [to make men more conscious of the sinfulness] of sin; and it was intended to be in effect until the Seed (the Descendant, the Heir) should come, to and concerning whom the promise had been made. And it [the Law] was arranged and ordained and appointed through the instrumentality of angels [and was given] by the hand (in the person) of a go-between [Moses, an intermediary person between God and man].

20 Now a go-between (intermediary) has to do with and implies more than one party [there can be no mediator with just one person]. Yet God is [only] one Person [and He was the sole party in giving that promise to Abraham. But the Law was a contract between two, God and Israel; its validity was dependent on both].

21 Is the Law then contrary and opposed to the promises of God? Of course not! For if a Law had been given which could confer [spiritual] life, then righteousness and right standing with God would certainly have come by Law.

22 But the Scriptures [picture all mankind as sinners] shut up and imprisoned by sin, so that [the inheritance, blessing] which was promised through faith in Jesus Christ (the Messiah) might be given (released, delivered, and committed) to [all] those who believe [who adhere to and trust in and rely on Him] (AMP).

I have heard this scripture preached more than I can count on every extremity of my person and each time it brings a different point of clarity.  Tracking with where I left off earlier, I would like to discuss the issue of the law. 

The law spoken today from pulpits, classrooms, government agencies, and people of God revokes Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice and places the freed back into bondage.  No more.  I am liberated and no longer being abandoned by God’s ultimate promise of power and salvation.  I am liberated and no longer looking over my shoulder for the next shoe to drop. I am liberated and no longer doubting my caretaker nourishes my soul and soothes my inner spirit.  I am liberated and no longer in denial of my benefits of clarity, enjoyment, and hope in a brighter future, and assurances that even in my moments of troubles, I am no longer held in captivity.  I am liberated and no longer believing the lies of the enemy who is forbidden from usurping my place in Jesus.  I am simply freed. 

Now, with the concept of allowance versus experience, a truth forms in the depths of my soul.  A free person no longer succumbs to the rules of a corrupt tyrant.  Let me affirm this truth literally.  Prisoners follow the rules of the system.  They must eat in captivity.  They must sleep in captivity.  They work in captivity.  They must wait for visitation time in captivity.  They must pray in captivity, if so inclined.  They must wear captivity clothing.  They are simply in captivity.  Once freed from captivity, they are free to make these decisions for themselves.  They eat their chosen nourishment.  They sleep with or without the light on.  They go where they dictate.  They can visit wherever and whoever without placing them on a list for approval.  They are no longer confined to shackles and move freely within the Earth without restraint.  They learn for themselves truth versus fallacy.  They acknowledge or disavow those things incompatible for their new life.  They become people.  The numbers on their back no longer name them by placement.  Like the spoon, there are no numbers.  This is the promise of what Christ has done for all those willing to acknowledge their freedom in him. 

Allowing something and experiencing something is not interchangeable.  The law and freedom are uniquely designed to meet different outcomes for your life.  Vision relies on your optic nerve’s ability to process light.  Consider for a moment, I can allow someone to steal my joy.  Or, I can experience the pain and make a conscious declaration of no ill-effect.  I can allow a situation to change my freedom into bondage.  Conversely, I can experience the chains breaking off with a simple word to the almighty at the right-hand of God.  I can reminisce about the lover who betrayed my love.  Alternatively, I can experience the freedom of understanding the lover was ill-equipped to offer me anything beyond a lesson in sufficiency.  I can allow the loss of a love one to debilitate my ability to move, speak, or return to life indefinitely.  Or, after experiencing the grieving process fully, recognize I am still breathing with an inheritance to manage.  I can allow external forces to dictate my very destiny, dreams, visions, beliefs, and trajectory forward.  Proactively, I can experience the internal key intrinsically placed, to cast down all that invalidates my inheritance.  No more, I declare and decree, I am getting every last drop of what comes from the heavenly of heavens. Including, but not limited to my inheritance fallen to the ground, in caves, under rocks, buried, or otherwise hidden from view.  It is mine and I know it cannot be taken away, unless I give it away. No more!

I know a little about inheritance, maybe more than I realized before now.  I concede there are things in me, I have yet to fully discover.  I digress.  An inheritance is a benefit once given cannot be rescinded without prior notification of the beneficiary.  Parents who rescind their responsibility to the child are still required to financially support the child.  Thus, leaving the child’s right to inherit their assets intact. Hallelujah!  On insurance documents, beneficiaries joined to the benefactor once installed are the only one who can sign over their benefits to anyone else.  Now, the scriptures above state, we have both an inheritance and insurance policy with Christ.  With what I know today, ‘Why on Earth would I sign, decree, or declare such power to anyone outside of the agreement?’.  I have in the past.  Transparency requires my acknowledgement of this oversight in judgment and understanding.  Yet, the beautiful thing about the past is two-fold.  One, it is the past.  Two, the effects of the past may linger, but my actions under the authority vested in me will mitigate their power.

In closing, Spirit of the Most High God, I declare and decree no longer will I reward an illegitimate power the right to my legitimate inheritance.  When things come my way outside my understanding, I will seek your counsel for understand and wait for the Ruha Word of God.  When I am wavering, I will call on the right-hand of God to steady me through the test.   When the test is over and the testimony comes, I will glorify you in word and deed from the throne room.  When I recognize your character being maligned, I will remain silent as long as it takes to receive clarity of the situation.  When the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy me, my dreams, my visions, my inheritance.  I will and do declare and decree.  No more!
