Connecting the Dots!
Updated: Jun 7, 2021
Life takes us all on different paths. Choices can lead to one’s heartache or our choices can make our heart flourish! No matter what our choices lead us to in life, we all have to come to the realization that we are broken in some way, shape, or form. Pride keeps the average person from seeing that we are in need of salvation. The world cries out for a hero or savior in almost every aspect of life these days. Movies, government, sports, and recently it has been in the medical world as they fool this world into submission. Who is they you might wonder? Evil of course, and the ones who are controlled by this evil.
The idea that we can do this life on our own is really ignorant! Who gives you the breath that you breathe daily? How can all the things you see be just random chance and then you still have the ability to make choices in the first place? Letting go of your pride first takes one letting go of themselves. The “I” in the middle of pride is just as responsible for the “I” in the middle of anxiety! It is in this selfish way of living that we lose sight of what the living God had intended for all of us in the first place.
There can only be one truth! There cannot be more than one, and this all comes down to the truth. Seeing the heartache of others is easy when the world doesn’t revolve around me. The only question is, how do I personally connect the dots? When the truth is set in one’s heart, it doesn’t just change one’s heart, it changes their whole world. Each person has a perception of this world and it is in this perception that ideas and cultures are perverted. The enemy knows this more than those who have no clue that their perception has been perverted. This life can’t be seen when the perception of people has been taken captive by the vision of this evil world. This is why people are walking right into the most evil trap ever known to mankind. In the last blog I wrote called “Are you ready” the Holy Spirit led me to tackle a very touchy but bold truth we face right now in this world. Embracing the lies for what they truly are can be harder than embracing the actual truth! When the lies are actually embraced then one can begin to truly understand the truth! Until then we just bury ourselves in more lies to cover the ones we have already become comfortable with in our lives. Embracing lies does not mean we have to live for them, it just means we truly acknowledge them instead of acting as if they have no weight to us in the world around us.
For a follower of Christ we learn that connecting the dots is as easy as removing the “I” in everything! See it has been me or “I” that has been the dot stopping all the other dots from making sense and being connected to begin with. When this is grasped in one’s heart then the work of truth can do its finished work! Our lives are but a vapor here on earth and they are gone.
14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
We were created to be human beings not human doers. The work of one’s hands is only as good as the state of being one’s heart is in. If one’s state of being is not spiritually healthy or truly tapped into from the living God’s perception then nothing one does will ever truly bring happiness. The evil in this earth knows this and that is why they seek to pervert the perception of people so that in turn it perverts the inner being of who one truly is. The movement known as LGBT is just one of many examples of how evil perverts the perception of people. Jesus warned us that it would be worse than the days of Sodom and Gomorrah right before His return!
5 These twelve Jesus sent out after instructing them: “Do not go in the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter any city of the Samaritans;
6 but rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 “And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
8 “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.
9 “Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts,
10 or a bag for your journey, or even two coats, or sandals, or a staff; for the worker is worthy of his support.
11 “And whatever city or village you enter, inquire who is worthy in it, and stay at his house until you leave that city.
12 “As you enter the house, give it your greeting.
13 “If the house is worthy, give it your blessing of peace. But if it is not worthy, take back your blessing of peace.
14 “Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet.
15 “Truly I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city.
This fits into the warning we see in Matthew chapter 24 as well but many can’t connect the dots! See the perception of the modern day church has been perverted in many ways as well. Many can’t even see the evil for what it is because they actually spend 99.9% of their time entertaining the same evil that they claim to stand against. When we tell many of these people the truth they will deny it quicker that those who have no clue what the truth is anyway. Why? Because it is easier for one to embrace the lies for what they are when they have no clue what the truth really is. Those who have accepted a twisted truth can have a harder time understanding the lies for what they truly are and then they fall for the lies without even understanding they have. The vaccine is just one example of this.
Jesus sends out His disciples in the above text, but does this call on a disciple ever truly change? I believe it should have never changed but it was the ignorance of people in why it did. Telling people about the truth doesn’t mean we sit with the same people over and over who already know the truth. We are to be bold in the way we stand for this truth we have in us, and let our perception be spirit led at all times, and in all things. To allow the living God’s spirit to connect the dots in me and through me will allow His truth to radiate in a way that others will want what I have! Peace, joy, patience, love, etc. can only come in all areas of my life when it is rooted in the absolute truth.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
26 Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.
Many who are involved in the modern idea of church will act as if one is boasting when they are full of joy, peace, and patience. They act as if it is only applicable in certain situations. Their faith is that of bookshelf faith. I wrote a blog called “Bookshelf Faith” highlighting this truth. People will choose to deny all sorts of things but no one in their right mind will deny the fact that they truly want to be happy. It is in their perversion of perception in this life that leaves them chasing lie after lie. They seek the worldly possessions that we are taught not to seek and act as if they are all a blessing from God! All the while the average church goer will then raise their hands in praise at the Sunday football game and sit silent in the worship center as if it is awkward to them. If only they knew that the lies they fail to embrace were keeping them from the perception they truly seek. We all long for the dots in our lives to be connected but we can’t seem to witness it because of the lies and failure to let go of our pride. Letting go sometimes seems harder than we can understand but it is always just a few tears away!
Yahweh, the living God, always sees us and it is us who fail to see Him! He made the real truth all possible through His Christ who is Jesus of Nazareth! I witness heartache through the words of people. I witness heartache through the actions of others. Most importantly I witness heartache in people because of the simple fact that they choose to entertain the lies of evil all the while claim they want truth. I am broken and I embrace this for everything this means. In this it reveals that I am in need of a savior! I am in need of a help so deep that it transcends all that I can see and feel. How is this possible to have such dots connected? Easy actually, let go of me! Let go of this world’s lies of what they say happiness is. It isn’t in my job, my house, my car, or anything this world has to offer! The state of one’s being can only be sustained by true love and faith in the living God and His plan for redemption. If you are reading these words and have hard time understanding them then you are still too full of yourself. I urge you to cry out from your most inner being asking the living God and His Son Jesus to show themselves to you! I have been blessed to witness this love, truth and joy first hand in a way that I will never trade for this world ever again. Yahweh has gave me many blogs to write over the past 2 years that you can witness yourself at this same site. If you love people then speak truth to them even if they get mad at you. The fact is that we have to plant these seeds now, because soon we will not have the chance too. The world we see will plunge into an evil so deep that will destroy so many people because they were never told the truth. The world will look for answers further into the very same lies that got us all where we are at to begin with. We attempted to connect the dots of life without the one who created the dots to begin with. It is He and He alone that can connect the dots that He created. I urge you to be bold if you know Christ! I urge those who haven’t surrendered to this truth yet, to please let go of themselves while there is still time. You can never obtain your true state of being from doing things in this life. It is obtained by letting go of this world so that the things you cannot see outweigh all the things you do see. Trust me it is never promised that life is easy in this broken world! It is promised that the life you will receive for eternity in the heavens will be though and you will never have to worry about a perverted perception ever again! If you have a hard time grasping the fact that there is a God and that He created all that you see, then just ask yourself why you are even troubled inside at the very notion of these words in the first place? It is because inside of each one of us there is the breath of life and that breath will leave this shell we call a body one day. Where will your breath go when it is all said and done? May Yahweh Bless you and His Christ guide your steps in the days ahead!
