Spiritual Intelligence: In All Things, Give Thanks

An incident:

Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”

So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.

And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.

So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

A statement by a Jesus freak:

Always be joyful. Always keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

My conclusion:
There is something tremendous about gratitude expressed through a lifestyle of thanksgiving. It brings a sense of inner peace to the person offering it, it frustrates the devil, and most importantly it gives glory to our God.

Just like Job’s, our lives are the platforms for the eternal battle between; Angels and Demons, Good and Evil, or God and Satan if you prefer. Therefore a life of praise gives victory to God, and massive destruction to the camp of the evil one!

Little wonder why Paul could boldly declare just when the enemy thought he had death as the ultimate offensive;

For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

So give thanks today and always regardless of your situation or circumstance.

A health warning:
As you do things are likely to get worse, but as long as you continue steadfastly heaven gets the upper hand and victory is delivered! Its a choice my friends – a good one too.

Essay: Conflicts of Interest…

What on Earth is happening?

Ever since the rebellion by Satan and the angels under his command, planet earth has remained the final frontier. The final frontier in the proxy war for the souls of humanity by beings from a far more advanced civilization.

These assaults are beyond human comprehension or imagination, the fiercest battle the universe has ever witnessed.

Famine and diseases, evil and suffering, typhoons and hurricanes, shifting tectonic planes leading to earthquakes, asteroids and meteoric missiles travelling at about 20,000 miles per hour… In the human mind the battle between; good and evil, the Holy Spirit and fallen human mind, selflessness and selfishness, faith and faithlessness…

Since both sides are interested in the affairs of Planet Earth, there had to be ground rules. The data from this perfectly controlled experiment has to be unbiased and free from Conflict of Interest in order for the results to be credible. The chiefest of these rules being humankind’s freedom to will and do — in other words, our gift of freewill.

Therefore interventions by any external agent will have to be in agreement by humans. Science, history, the Bible and even folklore have evidence of Alien interventions. Either force can be triggered by our allegiance to the laws governing each kingdom — light or darkness. For this thought, lets focus on the forces of light from a biblical and philosophical dimension.

For instance, the Bible records in the Book of Joshua that Joshua encountered a strange man (an Angel) with a sword in his hands just before the conquest of Jericho. When he asked this being to identify himself, he boldly declared that he had come as “the commander of the Lords army”. Then the Angel gave him clear instructions and strategies for his campaign against the city of Jericho.

In the second Book of Kings, we see the story of Prophet Elisha who had a knack for knowing and revealing the military strategies of enemy nations to the King of Israel. In frustration, an enemy King rounded up all his Generals for interrogation under the treason act. Amidst a highly charged sessions, one of the officers told him of Elisha’s unique ability. In rage he sent a host of army to camp about Dothan, where Elisha resided.

When Elisha’s protege went out in the morning, he saw the armies, in fear he asked his master, “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” Elisha replied, “Don’t be afraid, those who are with us are more than those who are with them. And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

Perhaps the most profound of these encounters can be found in the Book of Daniel. While the Israelites were in captivity under Babylonian and Persian dynasties, Daniel fasted and prayed at various times for the return of his people to their homeland.

During one of these protracted spiritual exercise, on the twenty-fourth day an Angel appeared to him with answers to his prayers and reasons for the delay. This passage provides us with snippets of these unseen battles. The Angel said;

“Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.”

The first Angel was subdued by a Demon (The Prince of Persia) for twenty-one days before reinforcement(Michael, one of the Chief Princes) was sent to overcome the Demon and set him free to continue his mission — Wow… Star Wars Divine Edition! By the way, there are lots of other epic scale visitations and battles recorded in the bible — please read in your time.

Friends as with any research or experiment, sometimes we encounter anomalies. For this scenario these are individuals, people or circumstances; that go against the natural laws — paradigm shift. You find them in both camps, and every now and then they radically impact and transform the course of planet Earth.

But everything with a beginning must have an end, so the final show down happens when Jesus returns to Planet Earth with His Angels as the judge of the living and the dead. At that stage, the results of this pilot would be collected and analysed. The final conclusion and recommendations would be drawn and report submitted to the Master of the Universe for the harvesting of souls and victory celebration.

Those that refused to conform to the pressures of this world, and accepted his lordship over their lives will be transported to a new Planet to reign with Him. Sadly those that refused his reign will find a place with their master Satan in hell.

So, which side are you on? Better still, which side would you like to be? There seems to be no middle ground in this conflict my friends.

I was told the Angels rejoice whenever an individual changes course and joins the good camp!
