The Empty Tomb
You do not have to convince me I’m crazy… every night for eleven thousand nights [some
times multiple times a night] I watched raging gun toting screaming monsters on two legs running from me… in terror with their gun still in their hand as I stood there with my hands empty [read below].
A Command ©
~by Cliff Newman
And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand! Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give. [Matthew 10:7-8 (Amplified)]
Most likely at one time or another during your life you have discovered the Lords prayer and for a while anyway… you jumped into what you thought at the time was to be your solution to getting your much needed prayers answered… but then… nothing ever happened.
And rather than sound like a doubting Thomas… you sucked it up and lived with it.
Well part of me wants to blurt it out that… it is your fault and it is but… it’s not your fault that it is your fault [grin]… you see… you have been taught by uninformed, lukewarm Bible teachers to… be lukewarm and from what I have discerned through scripture… being lukewarm is just about the lowest point in Gods kingdom a believer can get to. Right now in this time and place in eternity… you do not even know or understand who and what you are.
Go figure that!
Lets look at the numbers…
You have been taught that we are just humans… that we are nothing and can do nothing of our own.
Well… that’s true but at the same time we are just irrelevant pathetic physical beings… upon our conception God [The Living God] infused part of His Immortal Self into us… not just making us Living beings [spirits wearing physical tents who create with their words & thoughts]
but this action of Dads made us… His children!
No… we are not gods but… God is in us! Yes… we can think and do bad things. That is part of the ongoing test of our free will but… at the same time God is in us and as Genesis 1:26 states… God has given us complete authority over all of the earth.
So you roar… how come my prayers don’t get answered?!
Because you still think [and believe] you are an irrelevant pathetic little human that cannot do anything of your own… and all the while you believe that… a part of The Living God is in you because He chose to put Himself there because He chose you to be one of His children and has given you… complete authority over all of the earth... and we have that authority through our words & thoughts because that is how spirits create.
Go back and read the Lords prayer again [Matthew 6:9-13] and you will find this prayer our Lord instructed us on how to pray… does NOT begin with the human humility phrase of ‘please’ [go ahead… READ IT!]. Prayer is a light command… you are a child of God telling your Father what you need.
Not whining in disbelief... but believing in unwavering faith.
You are NOT a human… you ARE a mankind… a spirit wearing a physical tent that creates with their words & thoughts. It does not matter whether or not you accept God and His gifts… God is still in you. It does not matter whether you are on your knees praising God or standing with your fist thrust up in the air and screaming curses… you are still a spirit wearing a physical tent creating your future with your words and thoughts… with every word & thought your pathetic little physical body can create with the spirit of the Lord He infused into you upon your conception.
Go figure that!
It does not matter whether you are creating freedom and prosperity or… confinement and poverty with your words and thoughts… for you are still a spirit wearing a physical tent… still creating with your indestructible words and thoughts.
Go back to Matthew 10:7-8… most of Gods children have been taught they cannot do this because they were not given the gift of healing. Sorry! Matthew 10:7-8 is NOT a gift… it is a COMMAND!
I’ve done all of this and my prayers still do not get answered you roar!
Most likely you still believe you are an irrelevant pathetic little human that descended from monkeys a few billion or so years ago [it’s what you believe in your heart (a point of decision)] but in Genesis 2:19 God created the animals and then paraded them before Adam and Adam named them.
Now tell me… how did we descend from something we [mankind] named? NOT!!!
Of course there is that other little thing that causes failed answers to prayer… and that is wavering.
Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind. For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord, [James 1:6-7 (Amplified)]
During the years of my education in my past I have wavered much and every time I did suddenly I found myself back at the starting line… and at the speed of thought [and that is real fast]. Thus the scriptures teachings of unwavering faith… if you do not believe [have faith] beyond that of your physical presence [a seed of mustard]… it is unlikely your prayers sent into the spirit world will ever find their mark.
So Cliff… why did Dad give us these insipid pathetic physical bodies?
Two reasons come to mind… look around at the mess Gods children have made of this planet in just about seven thousand years. Can you imagine what we would have done to this entire universe had we been able?
Another reason… spirits cannot create children… Dad gave up everything to have children [EVERYTHING!]. In Genesis 2:7 scripture clearly states God infused part of His Immortal Self into us. All of us! Even those who have [and will] use their free will and spiritual abilities to go against God. And those who do refuse the Holy Spirit and on judgment day get sent into outer darkness… separated from God for all of eternity… Dad doesn’t loose just that one child but part of Himself forever as well.
Yes… our Father and His Firstborn Son… they gave up everything… for you!
This is just one of the reasons why we the people need to understand who and what we are… and that we band ourselves together again as a united free people and have President Donald Trump [who resembles King Solomon] who wants to restore America… lead us to do so… so that we the people can stop these globalist world dictators and prepare ourselves to be the Lion of Judah’s victorious bride so Dad can send Jesus back again.
Yes… it is a command but… only if you accept it with your free will.
And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize—a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion]. [Matthew 11:12 (Amplified)]
Yes… there is a war going on between darkness & Light! And you [yes YOU!] hold the ability to turn the battle in Dads favor. How? Because you are a child of The Living God Who is Living within you and empowering you… and you [through your indestructible words & thoughts]… have complete authority over all of the earth.
You still do not believe me? Look at what just two mankind [Obama & Hillary] have done… using their creating spirit power [indestructible words & thoughts] against The Living God and His children.
As did the Jewish people back in old Bible days… who marched around the fortified city of Jericho and shouted bringing the walls of that fortified city down to the ground as dust… we the people of America [with President Trump leading us as did King Solomon lead the Jews in days of old]… we need to march around Washington DC and shout… bringing the fortified walls of the lawless bloated government of heathen tyrants flat to the ground!
It’s your move! You speaking spirit you!
Until the next time I put ink on paper,
Scripture to Live by…
God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth. [Genesis 1:26 (Amplified)]
Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being. [Genesis 2:7 (Amplified)]
So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. [Isaiah 55:11 (Amplified)]
A man’s [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil]. 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life]. [Proverbs 18:20-21 (Amplified)]
