"How did you forget, who you really are?"
- You were created in God's Image and Likeness (Genesis 1:27)
- You were blessed, to be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth
- You were to subdue and have dominion over every living thing that moveth upon the earth (Genesis 1:28)
When God created man, he created him in His own Image and Likeness in Spirit, all were created equally: meaning that within each and every one of us is the spark of divinity, we are one with the Creative Genius, we are all filled with the divine and infinite presence of God. However many of us had decided to neglect or not recognize this infinite unlimited presence of divinity within and has substituted it with the infinite limited presence of self- ego. This infinite unlimited presence of divinity within us is what is giving us these irresistible urges-the longing to live more fully, the feeling that a life of joy, peace and happiness belongs to us, and yes it really does. It is that something within us, beyond all our doubts and fears, that something that can never be limited by our acts or destroyed by our feelings. This is the only something that can make us whole, that can make us complete, and this something is seeking to manifest through us. The something is none other than the Holy Spirit of God within, the presence of God within. As God hath said: “I will dwell in them and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” 2 Corinthians 6:16.
We were created to fill the earth, which God has given to us, with the culture of heaven, to colonize earth with the principles, values, morals, behaviors of heaven so that the earth would have become an exact replica of heaven. The extension of a heavenly territory on earth would have been established by mankind through their living, manifesting and walking in the divine principles of life, and in obedience to the Word of God. If this was so, it would have helped alter the many negative conditions we see in the world today in our personal relationships with each other, in our families, between nations, religions, cultures and in the world at large.
We were also sent to God's creation (earth) as guardians of the earth, with the wonderful gift of FREE WILL which is the ability to make your own individual choices in life. You can either choice godliness or ungodliness, to restore or to destroy, whatever choice you make you are bound by that choice until you make another choice differently...... so today which path are you going to take?
Our path is to inspire persons towards godly restoration, to know God within themselves, and what thoughts, words, and deeds will keep them in the darkness and ignorance of what their true God Potential is.
The Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13), gives us an indication:
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
In order for this model to become fully active there must be a process of restoration, realignment, and reestablishment. We must come to the knowledge of the truth about ourselves. We must clearly understand the laws of God, which are the "The Laws of Balance" to bring about equilibrium in life. We have to achieve the wisdom and knowledge which will enable us to follow the Laws of Creation. We have to seek and demand the truth to be shown to us, so that we will be able to develop the ability to discern and judge all information, actions and behaviors with self and with others which may go against the laws of balance given forth by God and The Creation. The creation we know is always operating in divine order, can you imagine what a chaos if it did not. We on the other hand are mostly operating not in divine order, thus the chaos in our world.
Whenever we are presented with any information, we must first ask for the divine (God within us) to give us the wisdom that is needed to discover and understand the truth in all information and situations that is presented to us. This means that we must have the courage and the determination to conquer the fear, apathy and ignorance within our altered ego, so that we can achieve the wisdom of the knowledge of truth, and be able to walk consciously in our divinity and thus restore the Kingdom of God on Earth, as was the original plan and directive of God to us.
The bible clearly says in the Book of Hosea 4:6 -
"My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."
In the Book of Proverbs says:
Proverbs 1:7 - "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction."
Proverbs 3:1-8 - "My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shall thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes; fear the Lord, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones."
The knowledge of God and yourself will let you clearly understand that you are a "Spirit" in a physical body with which you are able to have an earthly experience. Also, knowledge will let you know that there are spiritual laws and commandments that you must adhere to in order to be successful. Knowledge will also let you know that you have a spiritual adversary that is striving to make your relationship with your Creator unsuccessful.
Ephesians 6:12 says:
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
We can only overcome by studying the Word of God, applying it to our lives.
