It’s a process

As with the understanding of the Word of Lord, there is a process, I believe that it is morphing into the identity of God and man, as God intended it to be.

Anyone that has studied the bible and the institution of Church, knows that it has gone thru alot of changing in what we have thought what the bible(God) was telling us. It started right after Jesus’ resurrection and question that everyone was asking “Now what?” or What did all this mean to us or to the world? It wasn’t until Paul came along to put his take on things to say, that It was Jesus’ death on the Cross and His resurrection from the grave that there was a reason for this. But What?

Paul, being singled out by God to chastise him one day while just walking down the road doing what he thought he was supposed to be doing for the Lord, that God points out to him that he wasn’t helping but hurting Him, by way of hurting him, by way hurting his body(the church).

It was when Paul understood this from God, thru the changing of his mind(set) of what really is the ‘Kingdom of God’. We have to stop here and go the verse in Romans 12 verse 2 it says “And be not fashioned according to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” This verse I believe is the key for the christian world to realize that we have not renewed our mind from the fleshly thinking of this world in which we are supposed to be thinking,acting or being of “Christ”.

It is the human ways that we have forever and ever been ‘thinking’,’doing’, ‘believing’ and just ‘being’ in what is supposed to be of the “Kingdom of God’! Our failure of understanding of this has just led us down some bad backroads of christianity that is nowhere near what God has wanted us.

If we were designed to be in the “Kingdom of God”,it is different that the “kingdom of Man”,totally!! Man!! lol There are different rules and regulations for each of these kingdoms, just ask man, he will tell you how you have to act,do, and think on everything! (ha,ha) God’s kingdom is different, you cannot carry over the things of man’s kingdom to God’s Kingdom. Not one thing is transferable. sorry folks. Different all together.

It all starts with Romans 12. 2. The changing of our thinking. We are of God. We cannot think or do the things of this world in God’s world. It will be apparent to us if we renew our minds to the ‘New Man’ of the Kingdom of God that we will not do the things of the old man.

I am ‘seeing’ mankind ‘renewing’ parts of their world here and there around me and even far away from me. Take time to look around you, and see people renewing their minds by doing, thinking, or just ‘being’ different from the world, they are ‘standing out’ from the world in everything they do. They are the ones that are renewing the minds and they are proving what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God!! Amen and Amen.

Change

My situation is fluid with some of the things that I am involved in, things are always changing on me, but I have decided to make it even more chaotic on myself.

I have decided to go back and restart the book that I had started three years ago, and see if I can maybe finish it within a year. There is alot of groundwork to be done, but I have the premise and the outline to work off of to get it going. It is the finding the time to squeeze in the time and effort to do this seems to be the missing piece for me.

I am also going to continue blogging with a more urgent need to do this on a daily basis. I, now more than ever see the need to continue my path of ‘God’s Kingdom’ being shared as I see it as really starting to take hold in the world.(It may not look like it, but it is a grass roots effort that is building as we speak)

So bear with me as I push myself to reach the goals and to push the message out to all that will ‘listen’. Please continue to follow me and read the posts that I put out, it is coming from the word of the scriptures. We will journey thru this new ‘Revelation’ to ‘see’ God’s ‘Kingdom’ as we go.

I am planning to work on 3-4 blogs a week with also on the book work. I will give you updates on the book as I go. With some teasors that will keep you interested!

For now, I hope you have a Great day in the Lord and keep your eyes on Him. Doug

How do you change your mind?

Do you have your mind made up? Do you just naturally believe what you have been taught,and Why? When and How does your belief in someone or something change? Is it facts or assumptions that have built our way of life? I have come across all these questions over the last 3 yrs and I have come to the conclusion that I have done all these things! Assumed!! I have gone back to the beginning and re-evaluated some of my assumptions and have changed my perspective on these things. It was partly of understanding that the people of my upbringing were of importance and that I should believe them. I have no ill will for them because of this, because I too believe that have done the same thing, assumed!. The other part is my inability to take it for myself to understand  what I thought I believed. This is where my journey begins…. My Faith!    I will later tell you where this has led me in my trip!
