I Just Finished The Old Testament!

It’s the 1st of July and I’m officially done with reading The Old Testament!

I’ve been working on a huge review of it and have plenty of notes since there is so much that can be addressed and contemplated when reading through these texts.

A lot of what is contained within these pages is as relevant today as it was back then, since human traits stay the same regardless of time. This is sadly the reason as to why people try to say that the Bible is outdated. God forbid you read this and draw parallels to our world today and realise, in your moments of private reflection, that our societies are ill and in need of healing. I don’t think you are supposed to see that or figure it out.

I’ve always been a quick reader, or I used to be when I was younger. It has taken me a very long time to read through this though, since The Holy Bible isn’t written to be a page turner. I therefore wandered off quite often, but finally managed to pull through it πŸ™‚

I would recommend everyone to take the time to read it. It is regarded as the most influential piece of literature ever, and the longest reigning “bestseller” world-wide. Not to forget how it changed the filter through which generations before us perceived the world; delivering values upon which our ancestors modelled their societies.

This ideological spectrum also worked retroactively. When looking at “Viking texts” written by Monks, you can obviously sense how Christianity influenced how certain Viking stories were formulated and immortalised in the written form. How were these stories before Christianity? What is the whole truth?

Falsification due to propaganda and remodelling due to new standards is nothing new. It has happened before and we are witnessing it now, this time around, due to “political correctness.”

If you want to preserve your Holy Scriptures, or anything else of value, you ought to get some stone tablets. Who knows the extent of the cultural loss humanity has suffered whenever there’s been a moment of environmental “divine intervention?” Violent “climate change” has happened numerous times. It is actually quite frightening if you look into it. Carving things into stone increases your chances of keeping the flame of culture and faith alive.

Books and texts can in many ways be perceived as programming tools; the coding for various programs, internalised by our “human avatars” in order to interact and engage with this interactive, recyclable, organic, mortal world. The more dependent we become upon our technology the more vulnerable do we render our cultural inheritance. Especially since the art of storytelling is increasingly watered down by the dulling of our capacity for memorising extensive material.

My own spiritual journey has taken me from philosophy in my childhood, to flirting with intellectual Satanism and the occult in my teens, to meditation and mental training in adulthood and has now landed me in the Christian camp.

My approach to the spiritual was a quest for self-empowerment but ironically enough it wasn’t until I re-opened my heart to others through prayer that I found the inner peace that I had been yearning for. For many years I only found happiness if there was any good news regarding my music, after the 22nd of February this year I woke up again after 13 years in slumber. What an amazing experience! I do feel in many ways like I’ve come around full circle. I thank fate for bringing me to the empty church “in the middle of nowhere” that set me on the Christian path. I certainly understand now why people say that they’ve been “Born Again,” such an experience doesn’t have to involve drugs, crime or alcohol. It can be an emotional experience as well.

Prayer is greater than meditation since you direct your heart towards others.

That is where true peace is found, not in a self-focused spiritual quest.

The spiritual is real I say, I’ve known it for a while! You don’t need a church to feel God’s presence! Even though I’m not done reading it I’ll insert some cool quotes from The Holy Bible, which is not a read for the faint hearted.

And as the LORD took delight in doing you good and multiplying you, so the LORD will take delight in bringing ruin upon you and destroying you; and you shall be plucked off the land which you are entering to take possession of it.” “In the morning you shall say, ‘Would it were evening!’ and at the evening you shall say, ‘Would it were morning!’ because of the dread which your heart shall fear, and the sights which your eyes shall see.”

If there is among you a poor man, one of your brethren, in any of your towns within your land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him, and lend him sufficiently for his need, whatever it may be.”

And if your brother becomes poor, and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall maintain him; as a stranger and a sojourner he shall live with you. Take no interest from him or increase, but fear your God; that your brother may live beside you.”

Know therefore, that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land to posses because of your righteousness; for Β you are a stubborn people.”

If any one kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death on the evidence of witnesses; but no person shall be put to death on the testimony of one witness.”

“You shall not make any cuttings in you flesh on account of the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”

“All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace.” Isaiah 54:13

I’m slightly opposed to selective quoting, and it is of course of importance to point out that there might be several different interpretations of celestial phenomena when looking at various creation myths.Β The Christian God is described as The God, but this doesn’t nullify the existence of other deities as other gods are mentioned, etc; As a “secular Christian,” even Β as an individual who’s always been questioning life, the world, the universe, etc; there is obviously a great deal I do not know, (especially as someone raised in a post-modern West) about our Holy Texts, what came before Christianity (Norwegians were converted by the sword,) and also our founding documents/constitutions in the West, clearly stating and outlining our principles, values and “mission.” It is a good idea to look into these things as a citizen, so as to know what our various Nations and people stand for; if not we will not know what is being transformed and how. We will not know what others fought for, or what they sought to defend.

Then again it can probably be argued that it is all a mirage; but even if that is the case it is our reality.

What a read! 😍😍😍 Check out some of these Hancock quotes: "The eye of Heaven penetrates the darkest chambers of the soul, traces the leading clue through all the labyrinths which your industrious folly has devised; and you, however you may have screened yourselves from human eyes, must be arraigned, must lift your hands, red with the blood of those whose death you have procured, at the tremendous bar of God!" πŸ—½ "Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed, by the soft arts of luxury and effeminacy, into the pit digged for your destruction." πŸ—½ "But I thank God that America abounds in men who are superior to all temptation, whom nothing can divert from a steady pursuit of the interest of their country, who are at once its ornament and its safeguard." πŸ—½ #johnhancock #theconstitution #americanconstitution #usa #theunitedstatesofamerica #America #MAGA #thefoundingfathers #theconstitutionoftheunitedstatesofamerica #eagle #americaneagle #merica #bookstagram #books #reading πŸ—½

If you feel like writing a letter to persecuted Christians in North Korea, suppressed by the evils of communism you can do so here.Β I’ve read whatever information that has been sent to me from the “Open Doors” organisation, and it is truly bizarre to read about a leader who places himself as a God above his people. You have to bow down to statues of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il, and make sure that your wall-pictures of these mortal communist men are nice and clean looking. Incredible. If you want to receive information about persecuted Christians such as the ignored Rohingya Christians, sign up for “Open Doors,” it is also possible to help out financially of course.

Here are some intriguing articles to check out:

The Apostles.

Archangel Michael.

Lightworkers.
