I Just Finished The Old Testament!

Standard

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 This is sadly the reason as to why people try to say that the Bible is outdated.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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

 

Chambers “ghosts and spirits.”

Standard

An interesting alphabetical overview over various paranormal phenomena throughout the ages; displaying how far back these type of stories go, with a particular focus on England and the spiritualist movement during the Victorian era; not to forget the popularisation of “the medium.”

It is of interest that poltergeist activity, at this point in time, is largely considered to be a manifestation of psychic powers. Especially within young, teenage, individuals, who are conflicted when it comes to the handling of their own emotions.

A theory is presented to the reader that hauntings are simply recordings of past events; since humans cannot interfere and interact with these manifestations, but can simply stand by and observe.

Time glitches where people all of a sudden find themselves transported for a brief moment back in time, is mentioned in short.

The work also contains a story of a very famous psychic woman, who found herself imprisoned for life after allegedly murdering her own child in the U.S.A.; it made me think of a medium over in England who was arrested by the authorities during WW2 because she knew about dead soldiers and losses before the news hit the public. This led the government to suspect that she was guilty of espionage.

Invisible entities attacking people physically is also featured.

A theory is also presented suggesting that “mediumship” might be telepathy; meaning that you get access to people’s subconsciousness!

The book also describes how some people have negative NDEs, describing a hellish experience of the afterlife. I’ve heard rumours; but this is something that you never really see mentioned in popular new-age, non-religious, books about the spiritual world.

Chambers also have some other cool books about the unexplainable; needless to say there are countless other works mentioned within “ghosts and spirits,” since this book is more or less like some sort of “spirit dictionary.”

PS. The picture of the book is not very flattering ๐Ÿ˜ฎ It is obviously a very popular, well-read library book, so I guess I now need to get a serious disinfectant for myself! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

 

“Answers from Heaven” by Theresa Cheung & Claire Broad.

Standard

This book sees Cheung teaming up with a professional medium to further promote her case that the afterlife is real, and that Angels are active in our world, throughout our lives, at all times.

Prayer has incredible power and there have been scientific studies showing that patients who were prayed for had faster recovery times than those who were not” Considering that all matter (even our thoughts) consists of energy, it is entirely possible that this energy can be directed to achieve an outcome …” Amen to that!

In other words, the brain may act as a sophisticated receiver to express consciousness, but it may not be its primary creator.”

It was renewed physicist, inventor, futurist and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla who said, “If you want to understand the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.

The book makes for a good and easy read. My only two complaints is that certain stories are repeated from the other book I read from said author:ย โ€œAn Angel Saved Meโ€ by Theresa Cheung.ย which I find slightly puzzling when the author writes this: “Thousands of people have sent me such reports …”. The two women are also promoting a one-dimensional spiritual narrative void of negative forces:ย “In each and every case the messages from the other side are ones of comfort, hope and love …

I also question why Cheung & Broad blindly believe the sincerity of the spirits that they get in touch with. If you believe that the world is made up of opposites then you’ll probably doubt their exclusively optimistic stance.

There are lots of reports and stories that go way back in time, documenting negatively charged “hauntings,” just to pick one supernatural phenomena. If one believes in the existence of Angels (as we’ve come to know them in pop-culture), then why not Demons?

Cheung & Broad presents a marketable narrative in line withย The Map of Heaven โ€“ by Dr. Eben Alexander & Ptolemy Tompkins., a narrative that does not quite align with belief systems where you have to behave in order to please the supreme chieftain-Deity. The CEO of Celestial Inc. is nowhere to be found within current new-age literature, as you’ll be loved regardless of who you are and what you do. There is no hierarchical celestial order, so it is certainly very different from belief systems where you are supposed to try your absolute best to be a good person by internalizing certain values (or else!).

Thou shall not fear Celestial Inc.’s invisible enforcement agents; because all is light, and all is good – all the time! I wish I could believe in this friendly, open, tolerant, narrative – but I do not. Where there is light, there will be dark – that is what I believe anyway!

It can also be a possibility that “the force” disguises itself as “familiar” or “relatable” if it feels a desire or a need to intervene. This aligns with old myths, even Christianity, where an Avatar is needed (like an interface) to interact with humanity. If this technique is valid in real-life, then why not put on the mask of familiar individuals in the after-life as well? In theory it would make sense; but that of course hinges on whether you believe or not. And whether you believe that our creator can access his invention and design whenever “it” desires to do so.

I guess human beings have to believe that they are in the driver’s seat at all times. If this is what people want to believe, then I can certainly understand the appeal of books such as these, since there are no rules, nor spooky entities to enforce them!

Some selected quotes from the work:

It breaks my heart when people tell me that their early signs of psychic potential were laughed at or repressed by their family.” Yes, thank you Theresa for putting yourself out there promoting something that is not meant to be discussed in our enlightened high-tech age! โค

Whenever love is strong between two people it can cross the veil of death,”

Something with an awareness of future events intervened to give her a warning.

…we are all connected. Science attests to this and there is also the theory that time isn’t linear and that there is no past, present or future, just our perception.

There is a possibility that our thoughts and feelings can cross the boundaries of time and space, life and death.

…many NDEs occur when a person has a flat EEG, meaning they are brain dead, but if they have enough brain activity to produce a hallucination it would be registered by the EEG. Also, a dying brain or delirium are not convincing explanations as these would not be recalled as a positive experience or a spiritual turning point.

There is no conclusive proof that OBEs originate in the brain – in my opinion, they, like NDEs and night visions and all afterlife encounters (including the next story), are evidence that a part of us exists separate from our body and mind and that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. All those who have been through such events say they are incredibly powerful and a rich source of spiritual awakening.”

…so the next time you wake up feeling tired for no reason, perhaps you will have been on a spiritual assignment in your sleep. Such a wonderful thought that when we are asleep we all have the potential to become angels.

“...wisdom is “downloaded” into the mind of the medium and then written down or spoken, just in the same way you would if following dictation.”

The language of the spirit is universal and therefore there are no language ย barriers with mediumship.

In my experience, problems with grief arise when people get stuck in it.

Holding emotional grief inside of you undealt with only leads to health problems further down the line…

Thoughts ย are energy, and when we attend to and direct them decisively, they have the power to create our future, promote healing, shape our world and travel deep within the universe.

Many people have lost faith in the power of prayer because they’re either turned off by the religious connotations or feel their prayers go unanswered. The likely reason for this is that the very act of asking for something you want or need draws the experience of wanting or needing to you. Your words and the power behind your words – your intentions – matter. A more effective prayer should create the experience of having and being, but many people struggle to achieve this.

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 ย 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.ย 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 ย 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! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ 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!" ๐Ÿ—ฝ "Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed, by the soft arts of luxury and effeminacy, into the pit digged for your destruction." ๐Ÿ—ฝ "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." ๐Ÿ—ฝ #johnhancock #theconstitution #americanconstitution #usa #theunitedstatesofamerica #America #MAGA #thefoundingfathers #theconstitutionoftheunitedstatesofamerica #eagle #americaneagle #merica #bookstagram #books #reading ๐Ÿ—ฝ

If you feel like writing a letter to persecuted Christians in North Korea, suppressed by the evils of communism you can do so here.ย 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.
