Curing Ignorance Through the Infallible Word of God / Friday: At School again for Shakespeare Play Preparation

We are surrounded by
vast and empty spaces
of Nothing.
Great and grand

voids.
And wherever we go,

we have no idea
what we’re not seeing.

It is the same
for us.

Yes,
the Universe
does not reveal
everything it is hiding,
and that includes
a great reservoir of secrets.

All the stars and planets and moons
and great clouds of dust we can see
are a tiny percentage
of what is really there.

Almost all of the Universe
is made of “dark” matter
that neither emits nor absorbs light.
Roughly 70% of our Universe

is made of dark energy.

And dark matter makes up about 25%.
The rest – everything on Earth,
everything ever observed,
all of what we call “normal” matter
adds up to less than 5% of the known Universe.
So most of what is happening
in the Universe
appears to be
nothing.

And,
it is hiding
in plain sight.

It is the same
for us.

97 Percent of Our DNA
Has a Higher Unknown Purpose.

Yes,
WE Human Beings have found out
and now realize that 97% of our DNA
has a Higher purpose
and the information will lead us
into a scientific and Spiritual
renaissance.

Stephen Quake, professor in the school of engineering and professor of bioengineering

Nathan Collins reports in the Stanford News
that a new survey of DNA fragments
circulating in human blood suggests our bodies
contain vastly more diverse microbes
than anyone previously understood.

What’s more,
the overwhelming majority of those microbes
have never been seen before,
let alone classified and named, Stanford researchers report August 22
in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The Stanford study indicates that more than 99 percent of the microbes inside us are unknown to science.

A survey of DNA fragments circulating in the blood suggests the microbes living within us are vastly more diverse than previously known. In fact,99 percent of that DNA has never been seen before.

“We found the gamut,” said Stephen Quake, a professor of Bioengineering and applied physics, a member of Stanford Bio-X
and the paper’s senior author.
“We found things that are related to things people have seen before, we found things that are divergent,
and we found things that are completely novel.”

But there was something else, too – something weirder.
Of all the non-human DNA fragments the team gathered,
99 percent of them failed to match anything in existing genetic databases the researchers examined.

My Dear Friends,
inside each discovery of our LACK of knowledge
is a longing to find out more.
And a long-term, ever-deepening
awareness
of the vast unknown
Beauty and Miraculous Nature
of the Beings that we are.

In fact,
we are such mysterious Creations,
that scientists have finally proven
that our DNA has Telepathic abilities.
Scientists now believe that DNA
might have the ability to communicate with other DNA
at a distance
which if true would be like telepathy
because the cells are communicating non-verbally.

No,
we don’t know what gravitational fields look like,
what dark matter looks like,
what quantum foam looks like,
what constitutes the Universe
or US,
or what, is in fact,
REAL.
But what scientists are telling us, in different ways,
is that if we pay very close attention,
sometimes what looks like Nothing
is the best place to find the most interesting
something.

Let us pay attention
to what God says
we are:

These Truths are in Scripture.
And they are right there
on the pages of the Holy Bible
in black and white
about who I am,
and who YOU are,
as a Child of God.

Yes,
God can begin for YOU
a new understanding
about everything
and speak to your precious Heart.

Here
is some of what HE
says:

You are chosen.

You are Dearly Loved.

You are Holy.

You are a Saint.

You are free from condemnation through Christ’s death.

You have the mind of Christ.

You can do all things through Christ.

These verses
My Dear Friend,
are the infallible Word of God.

Here is a list of biblical affirmations
about our identity
derived from a few selected passages
in the New Testament.
This is just a portion of the many Truths
about who we are
and have become through faith in God,
It is a powerful inventory
to review from time to time.

• I am a child of God.

But to all who have received him–those who believe in his name–he has given the right to become God’s children … (John 1:12).

• I am a branch of the true vine, and a conduit of Christ’s life.

I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me–and I in him–bears much fruit, because apart from me you can accomplish nothing (John 15:1, 5).

• I am a friend of Jesus.

I no longer call you slaves, because the slave does not understand what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, because I have revealed to you everything I heard from my Father (John 15:15).

• I have been justified and redeemed.

But they are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24).

• My old self was crucified with Christ, and I am no longer a slave to sin.

We know that our old man was crucified with him so that the body of sin would no longer dominate us, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin (Romans 6:6).

• I will not be condemned by God.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).

• I have been set free from the law of sin and death.

For the law of the life-giving Spirit in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2).

• As a child of God, I am a fellow heir with Christ.

And if children, then heirs (namely, heirs of God and also fellow heirs with Christ)–if indeed we suffer with him so we may also be glorified with him (Romans 8:17).

• I have been accepted by Christ.

Receive one another, then, just as Christ also received you, to God’s glory (Romans 15:7).

• I have been called to be a saint.

… To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, and called to be saints, with all those in every place who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours (1 Corinthians 1:2). (See also Ephesians 1:1, Philippians 1:1, and Colossians 1:2.)

• In Christ Jesus, I have wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.

He is the reason you have a relationship with Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption … (1 Corinthians 1:30).

• My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who dwells in me.

Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you (1 Corinthians 6:19)

• I am joined to the Lord and am one spirit with Him.

But the one united with the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17).

• God leads me in the triumph and knowledge of Christ.

But thanks be to God who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and who makes known through us the fragrance that consists of the knowledge of him in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14).

• The hardening of my mind has been removed in Christ.

But their minds were closed. For to this very day, the same veil remains when they hear the old covenant read./netbible2/index.php?header=&book=2co&chapter=3 It has not been removed because only in Christ is it taken away (2 Corinthians 3:14).

• I am a new creature in Christ.

So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; what is old has passed away–look, what is new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17)!

• I have become the righteousness of God in Christ.

God made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we would become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).

• I have been made one with all who are in Christ Jesus.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female–for all of you are one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28).

• I am no longer a slave, but a child and an heir.

So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if you are a son, then you are also an heir through God (Galatians 4:7).

• I have been set free in Christ.

For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery (Galatians 5:1).

• I have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.

Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ (Ephesians 1:3).

• I am chosen, holy, and blameless before God.

For he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in his sight in love (Ephesians 1:4).

• I am redeemed and forgiven by the grace of Christ.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace (Ephesians 1:7).

• I have been predestined by God to obtain an inheritance.

In Christ we too have been claimed as God’s own possession, since we were predestined according to the one purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will (Ephesians 1:11).

• I have been sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.

And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation)–when you believed in Christ–you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13).

• Because of God’s mercy and love, I have been made alive with Christ.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you are saved (Ephesians 2:4-5)!

• I am seated in the heavenly places with Christ.

… And he raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus … (Ephesians 2:6).

• I am God’s workmanship created to produce good works.

For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them (Ephesians 2:10).

• I have been brought near to God by the blood of Christ.

But now in Christ Jesus you who used to be far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ (Ephesians 2:13).

• I am a member of Christ’s body and a partaker of His promise.

… The Gentiles are fellow heirs, fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 3:6). (See also Ephesians 5:30.)

• I have boldness and confident access to God through faith in Christ.

… In whom we have boldness and confident access to God because of Christ’s faithfulness (Ephesians 3:12).

• My new self is righteous and holy.

… Put on the new man who has been created in God’s image–in righteousness and holiness that comes from truth (Ephesians 4:24).

• I was formerly darkness, but now I am light in the Lord.

… For you were at one time darkness, but now you are/netbible2/index.php?header=&book=eph&chapter=5 light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light (Ephesians 5:8).

• I am a citizen of heaven.

But our citizenship is in heaven–and we also await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ … (Philippians 3:20).

• The peace of God guards my heart and mind.

And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).

• God supplies all my needs.

And my God will supply your every need according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

• I have been made complete in Christ.

… You have been filled in him, who is the head over every ruler and authority (Colossians 2:10).

• I have been raised up with Christ.

Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God (Colossians 3:1).

• My life is hidden with Christ in God.

… For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3).

• Christ is my life, and I will be revealed with Him in glory.

When Christ (who is your life) appears, then you too will be revealed in glory with him (Colossians 3:4).

• I have been chosen of God, and I am holy and beloved.

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience … (Colossians 3:12).

• God loves me and has chosen me.

We know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you … (1 Thessalonians 1:4).

The more we embrace these truths from Scripture about who we have become in Christ, the more stable, grateful, and fully assured we will be in this world.

Goodnight.

It appears that Edison was right: “We don’t know a millionth of one percent
about
anything.”

The Curious Realization of Being / Whistle Hill Cafe Needs Our Help / Important Dates

a_027

To see into the reality of who I am.

This place
is merely space
that is flowing –
like a river
of dreams.
And down by the
river bank we sit,
and we wonder
about the water.

Dreams are
fundamentally
unreal spaces,
place-less places,
flowing through
the canyons of our minds,
that,
until we wake,
reflect a deep
longing to be
and to see
into the reality
of who I am,
me.

We have
a curious realization
of being.
The space
in which we think
we live,
mirrors what is secret,
Sacred
,
a reflection of our real selves
in diverse shades
of dark and light,
momentary traces in time,
portraits drawn by imagination,
so parallel in their dimensions
they almost rhyme.

a_010

Objects we perceive are not the ultimate reality.

Light
dances upon the waters
of our lives –
waters flowing so swiftly
we may never know
the direction for you and me
is toward
an Eternal Sea.

a_034

    And we wonder about the water.

And what is,
or is not,
is beautifully reflected
in the temporarity
of each moment
meant to be,
or not to be,
as Love,
only Love,
shows us the deeper meaning
of being.

Plato postulated in
The Republic
that the objects we perceive
are not the ultimate reality,
but more like a shadow of reality.

a_049

Our experience is as much a reflection.

And the philosopher Immanuel Kant
gave us insight into the realization
that all we ever know
are the structures generated in our mind.
“The thing-in-itself”,
remains forever unknowable.

The mind is barred
from a direct knowing
of the thing-in-itself.
And our experience is as much a
reflection
of the nature of our mind
as it is of the physical world.

Kant reached the conclusion
that time and space
are not inherent qualities of our physical world;
they are reflections in the mind,
a perceptual framework within which
our experience of the world is constructed.
But this does not mean
that WE can never understand it.

a_054

Enlightening avenues of thought.

We do not passively
experience the world;

we are the creators
of the world we experience.
And why
would we not be?
Are we not
Children of God?

Throughout the literature
of mankind are examples of Spiritual people
who have proclaimed that the whole world
is within them.
And current research provides
new and insightful perspectives
leading to this conclusion.

My Dear Friends,
Religion and science are rapidly merging,
as new philosophical insights,
garnered from scientific research,
are providing more enlightening
avenues of thought.

a_039

A reflection in diverse shades of dark and light.

What is found in the precious
Word of God
is becoming more and more
validated and valued.

We know so very, very little
about ourselves
and the world around us.

“We don’t know
a millionth

of one percent
about anything.”
– Thomas A. Edison

But,
in this same moment in time,
we can discover
Ultimate Truths,
Lovingly placed
between the Covers
of a Beautiful Book,
The Holy Bible.
And these comforting
and enlightening words
are patiently waiting for
you.

bible

              Lovingly placed

My Precious Friends,
sometimes what we say
has little worth,
for words,
impregnated by Truth,
are not always
able to give birth.
And so it goes,
the distance we travel
is not always
equal
to the number of steps
we take.

But Love
is the essence
of Truth.

“The spiritual journey
is the relinquishment, or unlearning,

of fear
and the acceptance of Love
back into our hearts.
Love is the essential existential fact.
It is our ultimate reality
and our purpose on earth.
To be consciously aware of it,
to experience Love in us and others,
is the meaning of life.
– Marianne Williamson

a_131

  We can also be Loving.

To the degree
we are violent
toward one another,
we can also be
Loving.
And we are
a truly violent
species.
The second greatest destroyer
of Precious Human Lives
are other Human beings.

And God spake
all these words, saying,
“Thou shalt not kill.”
Exodus 20:13

But,
we can become
the most Loving Creation
of all.

a_009

         Toward an Eternal Sea.

The gossamer thread
of Life
is spent and spun
and very, very fine:
Life hanging
by a thread.
The tempest tossed
homeless,
buffeted about by adversity,
lead me to this
belief.

And why
we of such prosperity,
do not grasp
the fragile thread
of Life
to pull those in such need
aboard this Ship of State,
is beyond my poor ability
to add or detract.

The hand you extend
to others is,
in the Ultimate Reality,
the Hand of God,
as He moves
through us,
through our Sacred Hearts.
Together
we can give a new birth
of freedom
to a Life in need.
Hope in a heartbeat,
Love
beyond all measure,
an ultimate realization of
our being.

We are all
in the water.
All of us!

Goodnight.

a_028

So parallel in their dimensions they almost rhyme.

“I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord,
lead me home.”
– Thomas E. Dorsey

To believe in yourself
is to believe
in That
which gave you
being.
a_063

The Whistle Hill Cafe
Needs our Support.

The very Loving and dedicated family,
that has provided such a beautiful
and healthy service to our citizens
for very many years,
needs our help.

These wonderful people
need a new home
for their restaurant.
If you know of a building
located in Weatherford
or on the west side of Fort Worth,
that can be leased or purchased
and is reasonably priced
please let me know.

As with the beautiful family of
Atex Trash Service,
(817-344-8464)
this family owned
and family operated business
is part of what has made America
truly Great.
Please let me hear from you.
.

“As we Love others,
we Love ourselves.”

a_088

Together we can give a new birth of freedom.

Brace yourselves.
And prepare your children.
The future is coming
faster than the speed of light.

Next Week we will explore:

Quantum Mechanics.
NASA scientists have recently confirmed that matter can indeed be in two places at once. In fact, through quantum entanglement, particles millions of light-years apart can be connected without physical contact. Space-time can now be manipulated; teleportation is becoming a reality; gravity-resistant material is now heralded for air transport, and virtual science has led to a greater understanding of hyper-dimensional existence.

And you thought,
all they really need to know
is how to read and write!
