“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your
You have made him to have dominion over
the works of Your hands;
O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!” (Psalm 8:3-9; New King John Bible Version (NKJV).
“But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.” (Isaiah 43:4; (NKJV).
Throughout the ages, many prophets have lived and died on this planet called, Earth. These prophets usually tried to explain what life is all about, from a spiritually, metaphysical perspective, rather than a material construct. But without constant, material proof of things, spiritual realities and perception only catches-a-few-fish, so to speak.
The spiritual realm is an invisible, mental realm of thought. It is not perceived through any of the material senses, nor material forms. This spiritual realm of the Almighty doesn’t exist anywhere in the physical, outer world of material forms. Yet, material-minded individuals want to see something in material form before they will believe it is there; while actually, one must first believe in some event, or remedy as already spiritually-present, before it will take some material form, for us.
For example, before Christ Jesus began his healing work for those who came to him for healing, he often asked the suffering ones if they believed he could heal them. Why did he ask that? Probably Jesus knew that healing would come forth only if the ones needing healing accepted the invisible, divine power which was held in their own thoughts or belief systems. In other words, if those who came for healing didn’t believe in spiritual healing, they were turning away the very thing that was necessary to bring about their own well-being.
Here’s why the belief of the ones needing healing is important to know: Our true ‘body’ is a spiritual thing that cannot be material, sick, or dead. But when we believe that our body is a finite, material form and we believe we are trapped inside that physical form, (with all kinds of material ‘rules’ that flood our thinking) our own thoughts and belief system will bring forth into the human scene whatever we believe about ourselves, whether it be health or sickness, young or old. In short, we create our own sense of what we believe we are, and who we are, and our deepest convictions then manifest on the physical form that seems to be our body, but is not. Our only, real body is spiritual, not material.
In the kingdom of God, of which we are all citizens, there is no sickness, nor any form of evil. God never created evil…therefore, evil doesn’t exist in the kingdom of God, who is the One and Only divine, Power and loving Spirit, whom we call Father and Mother.
God is our only real Parent. God’s creation is the only real Creation that exists, anywhere, at anytime. We don’t have to worry about ‘coming home’ to God’s creation; we’re already there. God’s creation is the only place there is to be. We’re always in our celestial home, now…we just don’t recognize it. I repeat: We’re in our spiritual, loving kingdom of God NOW…we just don’t recognize the place, because we’ve been taught that we are trapped in a finite, material form that is cut off from God.
So, in believing only what we can perceive with the five, physical senses, we believe that we are separated from God, our very Source. But we’ve never been banished from God. We have never been put into a physical environment, where we seem to be cut-off from God’s divine, everlasting Love. So, why are we believing that we’re been cast away from our divine Home? Because it’s the universal, global belief that has infected all of us on this planet from physical birth…and we believe all we’ve been taught of this whole, erroneous, material sense of reality.
But the material sense of reality is only what dreams are made of. In this false, material sense of existence, we are very good at ‘picking up’ the beliefs of everything that the public throws at us. That’s why our collective belief patterns keep recycling every ten or twenty years or so.
Here’s an example of what I’m saying: Several years ago, I was working in a transportation division of a state agency, when a co-worker came into my office. She said that there was a very dangerous and contagious flu strain that was sweeping through our agency. We were to pack up our things and go home, right away.
When I didn’t respond, she was upset, so I told her not to worry about me, because I rarely ‘get’ anything. She left, but not without sternly warning me that I would probably get sick this time! (It’s almost like she was wishing I’d get sick, so she could be right). I immediately knew that her ill-wishing needed to be handled mentally, in my own thinking, so I quickly remembered that God didn’t create disease to afflict Its children, so I couldn’t have anything but my God-given health. Then I felt peaceful.
I continued to go to work several days, with no symptoms of illness. A few others also came to work with no problems. It was several days before the rest of the work staff came back. Some of the agency’s staff had suffered quite a bit with this so-called disease, but I knew that as long as they believed that some disease could take form and make them sick, they could manifest, upon the physical body, whatever they believed. Their health depended upon their own beliefs. and we each have our right to be self-governed over our own sense of body and health, without interference from others.
In Matthew 8:13 of King James Bible, it’s written that Christ Jesus once showed the importance of beliefs on the subject of health and well-being. When a centurion came to Jesus to heal his servant, it’s written: “And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.”
God never created disease, poverty, war, hatred, death, or any other evil to menace the divine Creation. People bring their own ‘evils’ into their own, human experience, by believing in the evils of a material, earthly realm, where God seems to be absent. We all do it. But our deliverance is in knowing that material existence is a state of self-deception. Material existence is a collective dream-state that still engulfs all of us who are still sharing the same dream-state of a finite, material place, where God, divine, everlasting Spirit, seems to be left out of Its own creation. But God has never left us. Our collective, material sense of reality is our shared dream, but we shall all wake-up, spiritually, one day.
The Bible speaks of the time when all humanity shall have finally awakened. In 1st Corinthians 15, verses 51- 58 of the King James Bible it’s written:
“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”
Now, as spiritual realization becomes more real in our daily thoughts, our human lives begin to change. New pursuits follow our changing thoughts. Our daily life patterns change. We become less worldly and more universal; more a part of the whole, than an individual trying to survive alone. We begin to realize that we are each a precious part of God’s eternal family, never abandoned, never alone. We move out of our false sense of finite, material families, because we are beginning to realize that the only family we can ever be a part of is the universal family of God. Every stranger we meet is either our spiritual brother or sister, even when they don’t yet know it.
