Just Because You don’t See It…

According to 2 Kings 6:8-14, there was a period of time, that Israel and Syria were warring against one another. The Syrians would often attempt, to set-up ambushes upon Israel. However, all these military strategies would fail – because Elisha (the Prophet of Israel) would tell the King  – what areas to stay away from!  

The King of Syria eventually became furious. He even accused his own people of sharing military secrets with the opposition…until he learned, that it was indeed Elisha who was protecting Gods’ people! As a result, of this treason – the King of Syria wanted Elisha dead!

Now, Elisha and his young disciple fled into a mountainous city called Dothan, but word got back to the King of Syria – and he immediately sent his best troops to that location. To catch Elisha, by surprise – the troops were sent out by night and then surrounded the city.

When Elishas’ disciple, woke up and went out, early the next morning – he only saw the Syrian Army – with horses and chariots all throughout the mountains. “Oh, my lord, what are we going to do?!” the disciple asked. “Don’t be afraid,” Elisha answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

2 Kings 6:17

Then Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.


I shared this story and scriptures with you, just to convey one principle point: 

“Just because we don’t see [it], doesn’t mean [it] isn’t there!” ~Dwayne B. Neal

According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, when we SEE (experience) life, through our limited five senses – we’re only perceiving 1% of the truth. However, if we’re able to see beyond the limits of the 1% – we will and experience life from another perspective – a God perspective – a real, true and authentic perspective.

With that being said, we have only a few hours remaining in this week to SEE and experience Life, from “Gods’ point of view” – and tap into another reality.  

Yes, we can tap into the “99% Reality” at any moment. Paradoxically, however, the Kabbalists also teach, that each measure of “time” (year, month, week, day, hour…etc.) Has a specific type of energy that comes along with it.  

  • Genesis 1:14 (NIV) – And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,
  • Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV) – To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 

Subsequently, the energy and scripture reference for this week can be found in: 

Deuteronomy 30:15 (KJV)SEE, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

Without getting into all that principles that this scripture conveys – it’s important to remember, that we’re either seeing (experiencing) the “good life” – that is set before us, or the “bad life” that is set before us. Think of our life experiences as a coin: we’re either seeing the heads (representing the good life and/or blessings) – or – we’re seeing the tails (representing the bad life and/or curses). Now, it’s very interesting to note, that just because we’re seeing only one side of the coin – doesn’t mean that the other side of the coin doesn’t exist. 

That’s the power of this week! If we’re experiencing a contentious relationship – we get to see peace and harmony within this relationship; if we’re experiencing sickness and ill health – we get to see our healing; if we’re seeing overdrafts and negative account balances – we get to experience our prosperity! 

Paradoxically, if we’re already seeing “the good life” – then we get the opportunity to see Satan. But not in a bad or negative sense…we get to see – when “he” (anthropomorphically speaking) attempts to ambush us – and thwart our Visions (pun intended) – and plans that God has prepared for us. With this seeing (knowing) – we can sidestep “his” booby traps – and continue with “the good life” experience.

1 Peter 5:8b (KJV) – because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

For us to see the true reality of our lives – and to access the remaining of this week’s energy; I suggest that we employ the use of the Hebrew Letters. Our eyes are the most advanced scanner and transmitters of spiritual energy for our Soul. The Hebrew letters work as barcodes of the spiritual energy – allowing us to access the positive aspect, of our internal Nature. 

Scanning these sequences of letters with the intention of seeing “Gods’ Point of View” gives us the opportunity to make this connection.

Think about the positive people, circumstances, events, and energy that you would like to see and experience today as you scan and meditate on these letters (scanning from ⬅ right to left)! 

NOTE: You can also use this practice during LION’S ♌ GATE (8/8 – 8/12) – and ask to see what is your true purpose, what is important, and how you can better serve for the greatest and highest good!

HE Didn’t Ask Us To Move IT!

Life is indeed a paradox. While we are often instructed to examine ourselves – to see if we’re in the Faith [2 Corinthians 13:5] – we are discouraged from evaluating ourselves. There is a difference.

Once upon a time, there was a man who was sleeping at night in his cabin when suddenly his room filled with light and the Saviour appeared. The Lord told the man He had work for him to do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin. The Lord explained that the man was to push against the rock with all his might. This the man did, day after day. For many years he toiled from sun up to sun down, his shoulders set squarely against the cold, massive surface of the unmoving rock, pushing with all his might.

 

Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and worn out, feeling that his whole day had been spent in vain. Seeing that the man was showing signs of discouragement, Satan decided to enter the picture placing thoughts into the man’s mind such as: “You have been pushing against that rock for a long time, and it hasn’t budged. Why kill yourself over this? You are never going to move it.” Thus giving the man the impression that the task was impossible and that he was a failure.

 

These thoughts discouraged and disheartened the man even more. “Why kill myself over this?” he thought. “I’ll just put in my time, giving just the minimum of effort and that will be good enough.” And that he planned to do until one day he decided to make it a matter of prayer and take his troubled thoughts to the Lord.

 

“Lord,” he said, “I have laboured long and hard in your service, putting all my strength to do that which you have asked. Yet, after all this time, I have not even budged that rock a half a millimeter. What is wrong? Why am I failing?” To this the Lord responded compassionately, “My child, when long ago I asked you to serve me and you accepted, I told you that your task was to push against the rock with all your strength, which you have done. Never once did I mention to you that I expected you to move it. Your task was only to push.

 

This parable reminds me that so many times, we estimate and attempt to give an account of our selves and “our” service toward God. At the moment we begin to make calculations – then we open the opportunity for discouragement. Since our estimation is very limited – we will only come up with a very limited estimation of ourselves.

Isaiah 55:8-9King James Version (KJV)

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Yes. Giving accounts, and making evaluations is very good for business; it is not so good when it comes to ourselves. And here are some of the reasons why I say this:

  • We can “under” estimate ourselves (as we so often do) – by thinking that we haven’t made any improvements in the area of our desires. A thought like: “I should be further along by now” is an indication of an “under” estimation and calculation of ourselves.
  • We can “over” estimate ourselves (this we do also) – by thinking, that because “we obtained” (actually we didn’t do it, but GOD did – Deuteronomy 8:18) the desired results that we’re doing the right thing. [Proverbs 16:2 / Proverbs 21:2]

In either calculation – this opens the door for Satan (Our Accuser – Revelation 12:10) to “come” in. Now the word: COME – is in quotations – because Satan is not some outside entity – but represents our very own EGO. From this, we can infer – that Satan (our ego) – is on the inside of us. Satan, is that part of us, that arises when our “why” or motive is not truly obeying God.

For example, in the above parable – the man (by his own accounts) thought that he wasn’t doing what God had instructed. Simply, because he wasn’t moving the massive stone. Therefore, Satan (his ego) began to become more relevant – than  obeying God. God just said “push the stone…”

I said all of that – just to say this: Our job is to obey God – PERIOD! Not give an estimation of ourselves, or to determine if Life is unfair or not – our job is only to obey. Because, while we’re busy calculating and giving accounts for ourselves – we leave no room for God to “do it” (for lack of a better). Quick Question(s): Would you rather give an account or estimation of yourself – or – would you rather God do it?! Better yet, whose estimation do you REALLY trust – Gods’ – or your own?!

1 Samuel 15:22 (KJV) – And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams….

The bottom line is this: Once we stop evaluating ourselves – we will stop evaluating other people. Or Better said: Just Love and Obey God…Period!!! And, this is how we can easily determine if we’re doing what is “asked” of us: IF WE’RE LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS AS OURSELVES!

Again, Our Neighbor! Meaning our racist neighbor – our ugly neighbor – our rich neighbor – our poor neighbor – our Christian neighbor – as well as our Muslim neighbor – our straight neighbor – and our gay neighbor – our married neighbor – our single neighbor….etc. I think you get the picture. All of these labels, in the final analysis are nothing but evaluations (judgements) – and our only job is to LOVE them as we LOVE Ourselves. If we find ourselves, not LOVING others (and this includes LIKING) – for whatever reason – then our self evaluation is very simple: We Don’t Love God – Neither Do We Like (LOVE) Ourselves!!!

Mark 12:30-31King James Version (KJV)

30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Why Don’t We Say This Ourselves?!

If Faith is the substance and evidence of the things that we hope to have, and desire to become (and it is) {Hebrews 11:1}; And if Faith Comes by what Hear (and it does) {Romans 10:17} ….then wouldn’t it make “common sense”, for us to speak to ourselves Faithful words of self-empowerment, hope, encouragement, and Love ❤?!! I mean that only makes sense….Right?!

I do, however, understand, that paradoxically commons sense, ain’t COMMON! (With all things being consistent) Our ONLY drawback in life – is that we don’t speak – from “ourselves” (from the God within) – to ourselves (to the human part of us).  Do we not know – or have we forgotten: THAT GOD IS WITHIN US?!!! {1 Corinthians 3:16} 

By speaking from ourselves – TO – ourselves (using the power of the I AM) – we activate the nature of God within us. With God on our side – Any and Everything is possible. However, it is our duty and job to induce GOD into ACTION, and we do so by calling on “Him”! 

REMEMBER: Within you is the power to motivate yourself !!! 💯 You are the Captain of Your own Ship….So Forget What Others Are Saying About You — WHAT ARE YOU TELLING YOURSELF?!! {1 John 4:4} 🔑🔑 

Happy Monday Kings and Queens…Let’s Make It An Awesome Week (on Purpose)!!!! 


Today’s Winning Affirmation:I AM the Captain of My Ship and the Master of My Fate!!

Scripture(s) for Today: 

  • Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 
  • Romans 10:17 (KJV) – So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
