Volume 82

The Whole Gospel; to the Whole Man; to the Whole World. (All of Christ in and manifesting as all of redeemed humanity)


A safe, free mature son of God is a glorious being, and one that God Almighty destined to powerfully operate from the very throne of God. This is from Paul Billheimer‘s book, ―DESTINED FOR THE THRONE.‖ And forwarded by Billy Graham. ―‗He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit‘ (I Corinthians 6:17). This union goes

SMALL PEARLS beyond a mere formal, functional, or idealistic harmony or rapport. It is an organic

unity, and ‗organic relationship of personalities.‘ Through the new birth we become bona fide generated sons of God (I John 3:2), ‗partakers of the divine nature‘ (II Peter 1:4) begotten by Him, impregnated with His ‗genes,‘ called the seed (‗sperma‘) of God (I John 5:1, 18 and I Peter 1:3,23), and bearing His heredity. Thus, through VIDEOS the new birth—and I speak reverently – we become the ‗next of kin‘ to the Trinity, a kind of ‗extension‘ of the Godhead. That this group outranks all other orders of WEB NEWS created beings is attested by Paul‘s dramatic questions in I Corinthians 6:2-3: ‗Don‘t you know that someday we Christians are going to judge and govern the PHILOSOPHERS world? Don‘t you realize that we Christians will judge and reward the very angels in & MYSTICS heaven?‘ Here as a completely new, unique, and exclusive order of beings which may be called a ‗new species.‘




There is nothing like it in all the kingdoms of infinity. This is the order of beings which God envisioned when He spoke the worlds into being. This is the order of beings which Paul called ‗the new man‘ (Ephesians 2:15, the new humanity


destined through the new birth to be the aristocracy of the universe. They form a new and exclusive royalty, a new ruling hierarchy who will also constitute the Bride, the Lamb‘s Wife. This order is divinely designated to be co-ruler, co-sovereign, coadministrator and a judicially equal partner to the throne by virtue of redemption and wedlock with the King of kings. Nothing can ever dim the fact that infinity separates the Creator from the created. Christ is the eternally unique and only begotten Son, ‗the brightness of [God‘s} glory, and the express image of his person.‘ But from all eternity God purposed to have a family circle of His very own, not only created but also generated by His own life, incorporating His own seed, ‗sperma,‘ ‗genes,‘ or heredity. ‗Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be his very own [in a genetic sense], through what Christ would do for us‘ In order to obtain this personal, organic family relationship, God conceived the infinitely vast and infinitely wise plan of creation plus redemption through the new birth, in order to bring ‗many sons to glory.‘ Christ is the divine Prototype after which this new species is being made. They are to be exact copies of Him, true genotypes, as utterly like Him as it is possible for the finite to be like the Infinite. As sons of God, begotten by Him, incorporating into their fundamental being and nature of the very ‗genes‘ of God, they rank above all other created beings and are elevated to the most sub-line height possible short of becoming members of the Trinity itself. Although, Christ is the unique and only begotten Eternal Son, yet He does not retain His glory for Himself alone for He has declared, ―The glory which thou gavest me, I have given them‖ (John 17:22). Therefore, the redeemed will share His glory, His rulership, and His dominion as truly responsible princes of the Realm.‖ Christ, Our Life Ministries stands on the firm foundation of Christ in the ―New Man, namely‖ the ―New Creation.‖ I hardly think that we Christians even vaguely know what it means to be a ―New Race‖ of being. Paul E. Billheimer said it well in the previous quote. Speak your inheritance into being (Rom.4:17). I have been justified---completely forgiven and made righteous.( Rom. 5:1) I have redemption through the cleansing blood. The debt against me has been canceled (Col.. 1:14) I died with Christ and died to the power of sin‘s rule over my life. (Rom. 6:1-6) I am free forever from condemnation. (Rom. 8:1) I am dead to sin and Alive to God; And I recognize it so. (Rom. 6:11) I have received the Spirit that I might know what I freely have. (I Cor. 2:12) I have the mind of Christ. (I Cor. 2:16) I have Christ‘s Wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. (I Cor. 1:30) I have all the fullness of God. (Eph. 3:19). I have power to tread serpents and over all the power of the devil (Luke 10:19). I have all sufficiency in all things (II Cor. 9:8). I have been bought with a price; I am not my own. (I Cor. 6:19) I have been established, anointed and sealed by God in Christ; I have been given the Holy Spirit as a pledge guaranteeing my inheritance. (II Cor. 6:19, Eph. 1:13,14) I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I am now living is Christ living. (Gal. 2:20) I have been blessed with every spiritual blessing. (Eph. 1:3) I was chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world. (Eph. 1:4)

I am totally accepted by God the Father in the beloved (Eph.1:6). I have been raised up and seated with Christ in the throne of heaven. (Eph. 2:6) I have direct access to God through the Spirit. (Eph. 2:18) I have been rescued from the domain of Satan‘s rule. (Col. 1:13) I have Christ Himself living in me. (Col. 1:27) I am dead to the ‗I should‘s‘ and the ‗I ought to‘s‘ of the law. (Rom 7:4) I have been spiritually circumcised. My old regenerate nature has been removed. I have been made complete in Christ. (Col. 2:10) I died with Christ and I have been raised up with Christ. My life is now hidden with Christ in God. Christ is now my life. (Col. 3: 1-4) I have been given a spirit of power, love and self-discipline. (II Tim. 1: 7) Because I am sanctified and am one with the Sanctifier, He is not ashamed to call me His brother. (Heb. 2:11) I have been given exceedingly great and precious promises through which I am a partaker of God‘s divine nature. (II Pet. 1:4) I have the right to come boldly before the throne of God to find mercy and grace in time of need. ( Heb. 4:16) Since this is the truth concerning every born-again person, then why do we have problems accepting this great inheritance? I believe that our only problem is that we are walking in unbelief, instead of walking in faith (Rom.7:19-20). I believe that we trust more in what we think and how we feel, than who God says we really are. How do we walk in faith? ―Walk in the Spirit‖ truth concerning yourself, ―and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh‖ (Gal. 5:16). Leap into the truth and expect the Holy Spirit to fulfill His promises in you, and ―POSSESS YOUR POSSESSIONS‖ (Obadiah 1:17). ―After you were illuminated you endured a great fight of afflictions‖ (Heb.10:32). And ―Be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises‖ (Heb. 6:12). ―Blessed is the man that endures temptation for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life which the Lord hath promised to them that love him‖ (James 1:12). We are overcomers for Christ is in us and He has already overcome all. Enter in and you will ―eat of the tree of life‖ (Rev.2:7); get ―a new name‖ (Rev.2:17); have ―power over the nations‖ (Rev. 2:26); get ―a white raiment (Rev. 3:5), and ―sit with Christ in his throne‖ (Rev.3:21).

Report from Pawley‘s Four Pillars and the 11 Princesses

An E-Mail to Jenny Fienning, Hostess of Pawley‘s

Thank you, my sweet, sweet Jenny, for the recipes, the wonderful food, your hospitality, for all the work that went into making the retreat fantastic. I came home a different person, and I am an even different Doris at this very moment than when I returned home Monday. My thanks to everyone. I go forth with all of you in me and all of me in you. I think I know now what it means to be drunk of the Spirit -uninhabited. Free to be me and open to all the possibilities in the sea of endless possibilities. Forever changing from glory to glory in His glory, as His glory, and awakening others to their glory, His glory. All one in The One. My head is tipsy. This is awesome stuff. I spent the morning reading that pamphlet about ―The Cross in the Heart of God,‖ by Alan Parker. Jenny, I think I might be a genius. Opposites. Yep. I always thought I was stupid; it is what others told me. Now I am thinking, "Could it be .....?" I was stunned to realize that I was actually understanding what was being read about Einstein and all those others Wise Ones of science. Like my eyes were opened; like my brain just moved beyond that 10 percent that man supposedly uses of his brain. Could it be that since God made man with the empty hole, the vacuum, that He reserved the other 90 percent to be filled with the knowledge of The All Knowing? More than the 100 percent. That sounds like an end unto itself. No, more like forever receiving the knowledge of The Known. This morning the Lord brought Ephesians 5:26, 27 to mind. "That He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish." He revealed that this to my Spirit: All of our problems in life press us into Him. Out of this comes our wedding garment, created by the Master Designer (An original yet One. One Glory. Clothed in His Glory. God is making our bridal garment and ironing it, getting out the wrinkles. In the pressing in to Himself, He is form fitting our gown of righteousness. Joe asked me what I thought about his spending $2,000.00 of our own money for him to receive training to be equipped to teach financial management by Dave Ramsey (entire material based on tithing principle) at our church. Are you kidding???? I nearly fell out in the floor. My Joe said that?!!? Pinch me. Is this my life? Where am I? Where did Joe go? On the other hand received notice from doctor that blood work revealed there are

weird little things suddenly showing up in my blood and there is protein in my urine. (Oh those crazy negatives.) Be still and know and trust. Don't run. Don't fear. Embrace the negative. There are a couple other negatives that popped up too that look pretty ugly and the outcome could be awful, But........Forward into battle, Princess Warriors. We win the war. Love, Doris

Pawleys Island Tracey Lewis

Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts. We have a will, but we have no power of our own. We are a vessel that is designed to contain the Holy Spirit that He might work through us, the sons of God. You already know this, don‘t you? I have seen it lived out in front of me this week at Pawley‘s Island in South Carolina. A group of Christian ladies get together two times a year in a beach house on the coast to hang out and be together. Sylvia Pearce started teaching 3 times a day and the ladies just loved it and now they do it every time. We went bike riding, shopping, walking on the beach and taking walks while we were there. I enjoyed going to the beach every morning to watch the spectacular view of the sun making her debut. She announced it with such grace and beauty; I wanted to be there to cheer her on!! There are many things that manifested itself in front of me, so where do I start? I know, life is sad sometimes but it is meant to drive us. Find the adventure in the adversity. There is always an opportunity for faith in that. Doris, who is a new friend of mine from Pawley‘s says, life is meant to scare the hell out of you. Suffering is the stuff that we don‘t like. Jesus learned obedience from the things that He suffered. That is the same way we learn too. Isn‘t it nice to know that we don‘t have to fix people? It‘s good for them because the Truth (Jesus) is in them. We all need to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. That fear means respect and trembling is the trust part. I learned to just ask God. Hebrews 11:6 says it is impossible to please God without faith. Luke 10 verses 1-16 The Lord appointed 70 others, sent them out into pairs, you can read it yourself, but notice verse 16, it says, the one who listens to you, listens to me and the one who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects the one who sent me. That sounds like Christ as me. Verse 19 says I have given you authority; nothing will hurt you. When you have done it to the least of these, my brethren, you have done it unto me. We need to depend on Christ as Him doing the doing. If we love God, we will love others as Christ in them.

We are secret agents; we are love smugglers. God needs a body to express Him self, He wants to be redeemed man; Satan wants to be fallen man. We are spirit beings, we just don‘t know it. John 7:38 says, He who believes in me, as the Scripture said, from his innermost being will flow rivers of living water. We can be God‘s hug to other people, we bless them, we can stand in faith and call things as they are that aren‘t. I don‘t know how all that works, all I know is that it‘s Christ in me, the hope of Glory. He said He would never leave us nor forsake us and He is always glorified. What the devil means for harm, He will use for His glory. The devil has no power, unless you give it to him. We can embrace the pain, don‘t run from it, and run into it. Stand and watch what God does with it. It‘s not about me anymore, but it involves me. The battle has started and we are asleep. We become powerful through poverty, hunger and suffering. Look at America after Sept 11, 2001. Overcoming never ends. God shows us stuff and we take it to the cross, and we are being delivered because the victory has been won through us. We get wisdom through the labor of faith. If we didn‘t have anything to overcome, we wouldn‘t need God or his saving grace. I am reminded that God is the one who is keeping me. We were sitting in the sun room one night when a storm came up, the door flew open, but then it closed quickly as if someone had come into the room. My eyes got real big and I looked around to see if anyone else had seen that. The comment went around welcoming Jesus into the room. About that time, there was a word card game going on in the other room and Sarah comes in with a word in her hand that spelled DEMON. We didn‘t receive that word and started singing a song. Jesus is the door; He is in your heart which is Spirit; who is the master not in bodily form. We are being turned inside out; the light is swallowing up the darkness. I Cor. 1:18 the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. It‘s the glory to glory transforming power of God. I wasn‘t afraid anymore after being reminded that‘s faith in God and Him alone! One more thing that I will share about Pawley‘s Island and that is it‘s okay to wait on God, I don‘t have to know stuff. I don‘t have to fix people. The Holy Spirit is the transformer and knowing Him is what changes us. It‘s good for us to suffer and go through pain because that is how Jesus learned obedience. Be yourself and let God be God because I am not. Stand and trust in Truth (God) in the Holy Spirit because that is how we overcome the evil one. The normal Christian life is about being persecuted, God means for us to suffer. Nobody wants to hear that, but that is where the victory comes in. Don‘t run from it, run into it. Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord. Oct. 21, 2011 Friday back to top

Dear Sister, Sweetie, what I can tell you is that when I first went to see Mimi Anderson, saving my marriage wasn't even on the table. I was dying. My uncontrollable sin behavior had led to consequences that I could no longer live with. I was totally under for the third time and actually looking forward to drowning. Not because I wanted to die, no. I wanted to live and be happy like everybody else. It was just that after so many repeated failures, I had given up hope that things ever would, or even could, be fixed. I think Satan works so hard to take hope away from us because without hope you can't have faith. "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for...." (Hebrews 11:1) I latched on to what Mimi was showing me to save myself. I knew I was screwed up and couldn't make myself do the things I knew had to be done to make my life work and be worth living. After I latched on to "it isn't me doing the living, it is either Christ or it's Satan," I took a leap of faith, or, really, I cried out to God to make me know this. I knew I didn't even have it in me to believe I was Christ in His Brenda body. But I read Norman Grubb's book where he said tell God you are willing to be made willing. I could do that. Really, that was all I could do at that point. I desperately cried out to God from the depths of my soul, "I can't do this, but if you really can do it on the strength of a desire only, I am willing to be made willing. If I can't change, I'm dead." The miracle of my restored marriage and my kids loving and respecting me came after; no one could have been more shocked than I was. I had gone to God to find a way to live with myself, after having had to take an honest, blinders off look at me exactly as I was. When I got that straight, I had the answer of how to believe for everyone else I loved. And they came through, too, after me. What my advice would be is to let God know you are willing to do and see any and everything that it takes to know and live from no independent Self. He is faithful and will show you. While I did go to some counseling on a secular basis for the incest and insane ingrained childhood thinking, and I did get good advice that helped me understand a lot of the stuff that I dealt with, the answers they gave were really about how to cope with the consequences, not heal the entire thing. (Namely, Me!) Be careful with them. They can encourage and promote an ongoing victim mentality that has no way to turn hard, painful circumstances into victorious adventures of

faith. Now, I know that line sounded like something kooky out of a positive thinking manual, but I know of nothing else (and believe me, I tried everything I knew or had ever heard of before I met Mimi) that has turned my ENTIRE life into a perfect circumstance that I embrace, thank God for exactly as it was, and would not change it if I could. So, keep that in mind. Christ is the perfect Counselor in you. I love you, dear, dear sister, We will talk soon. Brenda

~~~~~ Hi Sylvia, So glad to hear from you. I am still having trouble downloading from your radio archive. I‘ve sent an e-mail via the website as well. (We hope the problem is fixed)!

To be honest, the question I posed in my previous e-mails have since been resolved. I was struggling with the idea that we are all indwelt by Satan before we are saved. After listening to several of your tapes, I‘ve concluded that I just need to accept this by faith. I may not fully understand it, but I need to take it by faith. I have since left it at that. I do appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day to chat to me. I‘ve listened to many, many of your teachings over the past few months and have been richly blessed by them. As mentioned in my original e-mail though, I have not heard this anywhere else before and still am feeling kind of ―isolated‖. My husband is also a Christian and I long to be able to share these truths with him – just so that I have someone to talk to, but he‘s not at a place to receive it yet. Sylvia, since I‘ve heard the liberating secret, I have really embraced it. I believe the truths you speak of from scripture and in one sense I have experienced liberation. But since discovering this good news about 5 months ago, I have walked by faith in it. I still go through times of feeling frustration though! I just don‘t feel satisfied until I see the manifestation of what I‘m believing for! I guess right now, I‘m walking that ―schizophrenic‖ road you mention often – where my actions/attitude does not line up with my confession of faith. Some days (like today), I just feel low and somewhat discouraged. It seems as if nothing is happening! I‘m trusting the Lord big time for a lot of things – for change in me. I want to love more – especially to my husband and children – but I just feel empty inside. I KNOW this is just my soul, and that the spirit reality is Christ, my life – but it‘s just difficult sometimes…. Sorry to dump this on you… but it‘s good to talk to someone who‘s been on this

road for a while. I‘d like to hear your thoughts. Yours in faith. Nina Precious Nina, Oh how I love you. What you are experiencing is normal and the right path to knowing total liberation. Christ is your liberation, your fullness, your all. Stand on it and the Holy Spirit will put to death anything (―deeds of the flesh‖) that is not an expression of Christ. Don‘t expect your feelings to instantly line up and make you feel better. What the HS is accomplishing in you will cause you to have no regard at all to how you feel. Whether up down, or whatever, it makes no difference to you because what is happening in your soul is really happening to Christ, not you. We have lived from our soul feelings so long that God, like a good mother would take away our childhood security blanket to force us to grow up. The Lord has to withdraw, as it were, His manifested presence (expressed in your soul) from you, in order for you to know that you are a Spirit being, and not a soul being. Later, He gives you your soul feelings back. This Christ/Life is a super-sensual life that is resurrected above human senses and ironically when not being controlled by our fleshly senses we experience such a release, that we never want to go back. My computer tech thinks he fixed the mp3 download problem today, could you try again and let me know? Loving you, Sylvia

Small Pearls Overwhelmed? Why would James say: ―Considerate it all joy when you encounter various trials knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.‖? (James 1:2-3) I was reading this morning in Streams in the Desert about lichen, of all things….the difference between that which grows on the harsh mountain tops and that which grows in the valleys…The mountain variety is radiantly golden, smooth and with definite boundaries while the valley variety is rustic, rough, and ragged… Mrs. Cowman, the author, used the comparison as an example of our growth spiritually… I do have to admit that I do the same thing—comparing life experiences with spiritual growth… I liked her thought…‖And is it not so with the Christian who is afflicted, tempest

tossed and not comforted? Till the storms and vicissitudes of God‘s providence beat upon him again and again, his character appears marred and clouded, but trials clear away the obscurity, perfect the outlines of his disposition, and give brightness and blessing to his life.‖ To this I would like to add that in Hebrews it says that Jesus learned obedience through suffering. Someone said of my father , Ed, the other day that he exhibited the grace, love, glory of the Lord in a fully human expression. What an awesome comment…As my dad matured in earthly years he took on the radiant golden glow of his true nature…that of the living Jesus Christ…but it was through much ―harsh weather‖ that produced his true nature. It is the same for us…Life‘s journey is to bring forth in us the living reality of Christ uniquely expressing Himself as us…and the beauty of that blesses the many… So, as you go your way today, know that HE is about His business as you…in LOVE….

Praise and Prayer

―always offering prayer WITH JOY in my every prayer for you all in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now. (Phil. 1:4,5)

As I read the Psalms, the constant is ―Praise the Lord, Bless the Lord, How awesome is our God, Mighty in battle, Majestic, worthy of ALL Praise‖. Within praise is a secret…the heart of God loves Himself unselfishly so that His creation can enjoy existence…from the highest creation, Humanity-- to the one cell plankton in the ocean-- to the expanse of the Universe (which is much greater than we humans can even contemplate). With that in mind, what is the connection with Praise and Prayer? Maybe you see them as separate…a time of praise…a time of prayer… I believe that in the various structures of ―religion‖ the two, prayer and praise, which are really one, have been separated, just as humanity has been deceived into believing that each person is an independent, self generating, entity. What I find wonderful is that God knows our hearts, our being… In Christ we are continually being transformed from that false identity of ―independent self beings‖ to the know that we are totally dependent beings who are learning what we were created for-- which is-- to ―know, contain, and express the Living God forever‖…Praise and Prayer are the basis of that relationship…. The Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are in continual mutual admiration, love, cooperation, communication, and expression in their creation. On the human level, as expressers of God, there also is admiration, gratitude, love, communication with Him…hmmm…Seems like Praise and Prayer (communication

of desire & need) go hand in hand… Within my own life I have discovered that Praise is the springboard of bringing ―Heaven to Earth‖. I have to say that first I experienced the ―feeling‖ of the closeness of God when I was praising Him corporately or at home… I loved that time, but I found that it came and went with emotions… I wanted the Joy, the Peace that passes understanding, the prayer that had power( not just a repetitive ―hope so‖)… Slowly I found that when in a situation I either didn‘t like, or I was confused, or found myself ―brainless‖, helpless, etc. I just said ―God you are up to something‖ or ―God you are in the middle of this‖ or ―Help me Jesus‖…I began to get guidance from the Holy Spirit. (By the way… There is NO formula!!) God knows how each of us works and knows what words and ways work to bring us into that Joy unspeakable and full of Glory… As I learned to trust Him in the midst of my situations, I found that Praise was always in me, no matter what came to me... Now, let me say this…when a situation initially confronts me, it is not always met with ―Praise the Lord‖…most likely it will be a few other earthly adjectives as it hits my soul…like a hurricane or tornado in my soul…got the picture? It is always a surprise… BUT…and this is the point…BUT GOD!! What you say after the BUT is what you are believing as that is what is left in your finite mind…So, I may get hit with a tornado and be blasted, BUT, I now know that HE IS IN THE STORM and keeps me and mine…So, I can say, Praise you Father, for you are up to something eternal here and are using this situation for your glory… Praise brings me into HIS ways…and the outcome of that is ―speaking forth‖ the desires of God in a given situation…which are always for transforming something or someone. Our supplications become words that are of FAITH BELIEVING that when we put them in the air that they will manifest what has been spoken…for we have learned to ask for what God wants to bring to earth… The verbal conversation between you and God clears out that which is cluttering your mind so that you can then speak forth what our Father desires to manifest on the earth… Thankfulness, gratitude, awe, are all vehicles that cradle the Desires of God that only His Human family can bring forth in the earth… ―Finally, brethren,

rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like minded, live in peace and the God of love and peace shall be with you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. (II Cor. 13:11,14) Jenny Fienning 9/2/11


Sally, Try Hard, doesn‘t know that she is dead.

What can a dead person do?

A dead person cannot keep the law. The law may shout at us, but a dead person cannot respond to it. A dead person cannot perform at all. She has no plans for the future; no regrets from the past; nothing to do in the present. She cannot do good deeds or be moral. She has no ability to fix herself, she doesn‘t even have a need to. A dead person doesn‘t need improvement. A dead person doesn‘t have the strength to fight the devil. A dead person doesn‘t need to recommit herself to God. And last of all a dead person doesn‘t have any needs at all. ―You are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God, and when Christ who is your life shall appear, you shall be with Him in glory.‖ Col. 3_3-4). Most would take this verse to mean that when Jesus comes back again then we will be with Him in glory. That will happen too, but when we know that we are dead now, and Christ is our life now, we also know that we are resurrected with Him now, and seated with him in glory now. Jesus, yesterday, today, and forever. Sylvia Pearce

Don‘t freak out, Jesus was a mystic. It only means: ―One who has mystically experiences, and reveals deep mysteries.‖ Gosh, all Christians must be Mystics!

These writings are by a Philosopher, Soren Kierkegaard. section: Kierkegaard‘s Corner

Other writings are by a 16th century Mystic, Jacob Boehme. We call his section: Jewells from Boehme.

Kierkegaard‖s Corner

From Either/Or

―Boredom is the root of all evil.‖ ―In the case of children, the ruinous character of boredom is universally acknowledged. Children are always well-behaved as long as they are enjoying themselves. This is true in the strictest sense; for they are already beginning to be bored—boredom is already approaching, though from a different direction. In choosing a governess, one therefore takes into account not only her sobriety, her faithfulness, and her competence, but also her aesthetic qualifications for amusing the children […]‖ (22). ―Adam was bored alone; then Adam and Eve were bored together; then Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel were bored en famille; then the population of the world increased, and the peoples were bored en masse. To divert themselves they conceived the idea of constructing a tower high enough to reach the heavens. This idea is itself as boring as the tower was high, and constitutes a terrible proof of how boredom gained the upper hand‖ (23).

Jewells from Jacob Boehme

1575-1624 Men of self love have introduced their Christianity into a fleshly kingdom, and finely trimmed it with laws, ceremonies and opinions, and have covered it with Christ's purple mantle, and yet live in mere spiritual whoredom under it, with a hypocritical show. But their hearts constantly beget this lustful Dinah, which runs abroad from the simplicity and humility of Christ, and plays the whore with the idols of fleshly lust, viz. with pride and covetousness, merely with their own honor and reputation, and a voluptuous life; quite contrary to the true Christian ground. But seeing the spirit of Christ dwells yet always in his Christendom, he often stirs up men which do thus acknowledge and see the sleep and whoredom of the titulary Christendom in their Sodomitical life, and turn away from them, and search in the Scriptures, and also in the light of nature, whether this their fleshly ground can subsist in the presence of God; and when they see that it is false, then they fall upon some other ground, and reprove the whoredom of the titulary Christendom. For the true Apostolic temple is the temple of Jesus Christ, viz. the new man, who lives in righteousness and purity before God, who walks in humility and in the simplicity of Christ. And his ministers are such as do declare the peace in the love of Jesus Christ, who leave the sword in its sheath, and teach with the meek and gentle spirit of Jesus Christ; and show instead of the murdering sword the spirit of cleansing. Behold, O Christendom! the spirit has set this before you in the figure of the twelve patriarchs, and signifies that you would do thus: not that you should do it. Though this strife must come, that the true children of Christ might be exercised and made manifest; otherwise if no strife did arise among the Christians, all wicked men could appear as Christians. But the strife makes it manifest that the false ground of verbal

Christians is brought to light, and they are distinguished from the true children of Christ; which will be also a witness against them at the Last Day of judgment. Man's true Christianity stands in the inward ground of the soul in the ground of man, not in the ostentation and fashions of this world, but in the power of well doing in the spirit and conscience. The strife wherewith a true Christian strives is only the spirit of righteousness, which casts away from it the falsehood and wickedness in flesh and blood, and suffers and endures all things willingly for Christ's sake, who dwells in it; that it may not live to itself; and please itself; and have satisfaction in itself; and triumph with the earthly Lucifer; but that he please God his Creator in Christ Jesus. He has nothing in this world to strive for, for nothing is his own. For in Christ he is not of this world, but as the Scripture says, Our conversation is in heaven (Phil. iii. 20). All things for which and wherewith he strives is about the earthly, voluptuous, fleshly Lucifer, in the mortal flesh and blood. For Christ says, His kingdom is not of this world (John xviii. 36). So also a Christian's kingdom, so far as he is a Christian, is not of this world, but in Christ in God. Mysterum Magium Chapter 62

Quotes The man-pleaser, the one who manages successfully with everyone - he who possesses no sharp edges. God never uses such people. The true individual, anyone who is going to be directly involved with God, will not and cannot avoid the human bite. He will be thoroughly misunderstood. God is no friend of cozy human gathering. Soren Kierkegaard Everyone who will genuinely serve the truth is by that very fact a martyr. Soren Kierkegaard

He who walks the narrow path of faith no one can advise, no one can understand. Soren Kierkegaard

The majority of people are not so afraid of holding a wrong opinion, as they are of holding an opinion alone. Soren Kierkegaard If it is hard to bear the world‘s persecution, it is harder still to bear the responsibility for not having acted, to stand ashamed in eternity because you did not win the bold confience that transforms shame into honor. Soren Kierkegaard

Most people think, speak, and write the way they sleep, eat and drink, without any question ever arising as to their relationship to the eternal. Soren Kierkegaard Philosophy is perfectly right in saying that life must be understood backward. But then it forgets the other side -- that it must be lived forwards. Soren Kierkegaard ―Satan has stolen God‘s creation away to make unto himself a kingdom of servants, expressing his perverted nature of self-for-self. This rebellious satanic ―I WILL‖ that first perverted Lucifer, infected mankind in the Garden and is the same ―I WILL‖ that Paul struggled with, by trying not to covet in Romans Seven. And it is the same, ―NOT MY WILL,‖ but Thine, ―that Jesus relinquished in the garden. This satanic ―I WILL‖ is thankfully the same ―I‖ that was crucified with Christ (Gal. 2:20) on the Cross two thousand years ago defeating the satanic rule in mankind.‖ Sylvia Pearce

"We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito.‖ — C.S. Lewis ―Nothing contains the All of Being.‖

―Your faith is not yours to keep.‖ Diane Gillooly ―The sin and pride of the world is: ―I am sufficiently able, so I really don‘t need God.‖ While the sin and pride of the Christian is: ―I‘ll give Christ permission to help me be self-sufficiently good enough, and advance His kingdom by my own efforts.‖ Sylvia Pearce back to top

Simple Man

Poems of the Month

I am a man of a simple fountain, one drop times eternity, a man of a simple walk, one step times infinity; no prisoner of time or forced to be more than where I walk. When I don‘t know, I have the mind that knows, if I need to. Pressure comes as it must, the contractions of frenzy, but we are made for peace and order, where nothing of hell can be more than a gaze from a distance. Along the river, in the fellowship of trees, there is water below

for each. The woods are many trees, each tree its own but all the same. This is the goodness of God. BC/11-2-11 back to top


News from Jail Tracey Lewis

Tracey Lewis lives in Hopkinsville, Ky. She ministers at the Christian County Jail in Hopkinsville. Please pray for these women and certainly pray for Tracey.


When I tell people that I minister at the jail they will tell me they could never go there because they feel like they are getting what they deserve. While I agree there is a consequence to our actions; that is not the reason I go to the jail. I know God is gracious, full of mercy, slow to anger and of great kindness. He is the God of second chances. Jonah didn't want to go to Nineveh because they were wicked and he felt they deserved what they got, but when he ran from God, he found that out the hard way the lengths God would go to, to save lives. The girls in jail could relate because many of them are running from what God told them. I hope we all know the story of Jonah because it would take up all the room I have to write about it. In chapter 1 verse 3, Jonah went down to Joppa, in vs. 5, he went down into the sides of the ship, vs. 15 they cast him down into the sea. I asked them tonight if they felt they were going down, down down. JoAnn Stanley from Rhema Word brought up the fact that once the big fish swallowed Jonah he could no longer run. It was only after he was swallowed up, did he cry out to the Lord. When God spoke to the fish to vomit Jonah on dry land, he was exactly where God wanted him to be. We can all relate to God preparing a place for us to be, even if it is in jail. In some cases, it‘s jail that saved their lives. After Jonah preached to the people of Nineveh, they repented and believed God. I think it made Jonah very angry because he told the people of Nineveh that God would destroy them, but because they repented, God did not destroy them. Jonah‘s pride was hurt; remember - he didn‘t want to go there in the first place. So he lay

down to die, but God prepared a gourd, the shade, the worm, and the vehement east wind, so that Jonah would be relieved from his grief, but Jonah cared more about the gourd dying than he did about the 120,000 people in Nineveh. We can look at this story in Jonah to be a life preserver. God knows what it will take to get us to a place of obedience without death. He is giving us a 2nd chance and some of us are on our umpteenth chance, but God is full of grace and mercy on us because He loves us. Cubbie realized this tonight as we talked about God‘s love in her life. ―I am no longer in doubt when it comes to God,‖ She said. He is showing her in a real way that no matter what other people say, she is following Jesus. Is she strong enough? No. Just like the mariners in Jonah‘s story, they rowed the boat harder in their own strength and COULD NOT make it to land. Neither can we. God never intended for us carry our own burdens nor to obey the law. He said to come unto Him who are weary and heavy laden, He will give you rest for your souls. We are learning that He is meek and lowly in heart. I go to the jail because this is the place where many are ready to give their lives to God because they have been swallowed up by their big fish that God prepared for them, where it is smelly, cramped and makes them cry. They have been vomited out on dry land and ready to obey God. That‘s when I get to share in what God is doing and love them when they feel like dying. September 15, 2011 Thursday

God Only Sylvia Pearce

Preface This booklet is written to all ―blood-bought‖ ―born-again,‖ Christians who are seeking a steady walk in the Spirit when your outer world is falling apart and the road of life is too treacherous and too rocky to tread. Where is God when all seems to be lost? How can we understand God‘s ways, and who can know His mind? When we begin to see through the our evil circumstances to a God of unconditional love, and focus and trust Him Only in all your circumstances, our treacherous rocky roads will be transformed into shouts of praises and will produce in us a steady smooth highway of faith. Please do yourself a favor and read this booklet in its entirety. If you stumble over any unusual statements and jump to conclusions, you will not experience the intended liberation and release from being double-minded and unstable in all your ways (James 1:8). This booklet is not for the immature Christian who is faint of heart. It is for those who really want to mature past childhood and eat the strong meat of the Word, ―Strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil‖ Hebrews 5:14). I bless you and your endeavor to discover the oneness that Jesus prayed for in John 17:20-23. It is the inheritance that is promised to all the Saints who wholly put their trust in Him. It is the Last Will and Testament of our Lord, and it is sealed by His precious blood. Don‘t come short of possessing your possessions. If you find that you cannot understand what I am saying in this booklet, put it up on your book shelf and wait on the Spirit to reveal these truths to you.

―GOD ONLY‖ (part three) How does Seeing ‖God Only‖ Walk out?

As the Holy Spirit cast down all false imaginations and cleanses our consciousness, we will begin to be enlightened to what the bible says, ―Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God (Romans 13:1). Jesus had a ―God only‖ perspective when preaching ―the Sermon on the Mount‖. He said, ―The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single they whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! Think about it--The opposite of single is not evil, it is DOUBLE. I believe Jesus is saying, seeing double is your evil. ―Seeing warring powers in competition with one another fills our bodies with darkness, and as the scriptures say ―how great is that darkness‖ (Matt. 6:22-23). Seeing God in everything is born out of a unified consciousness experienced by those of us who have entered into a union relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. It is actually Christ‘ own mind. We experience this consciousness change because we have entered into ―His rest‖ and have experienced being raised with Christ in His resurrection and ascension. The Israelites refused to enter into the ―Promised Land‖ and died in the wilderness. The bible warns us Christians not to come short of apprehending by faith the promised ―rest for the people of God‖ (Hebrews 4:1). A ―God only‖ mentality can only be experienced by a radical replacement of the lie of having a independent life source of my own, and then replacing that lie with Christ who is my life‘s sufficiency and true power source. This new unified mind replaces my separated mentality that makes me falsely think I am ―just me‖ with Christ occasionally helping me. This glorious paradigm shift miraculously produces in me the desired ―single eye of faith.‖ This new God seeing which is not just a consciousness, it is a person, it is Jesus, and He is made unto us Wisdom (I Cor. 1:30). It is actually the sight and thoughts coming right from the new ―mind of Christ‖ as He manifests His thoughts through us. However, this understanding that we are not and never been an independent-self, is the necessary background revelation for discovering the fullness of Christ only as us. Here we go again, ―The law of opposites‖ kicks in again; Nothing can be known except by it necessary opposite. Once we see the lie of independent-self, and experience the consequences of double-mindedness, and humbly submit ourselves to the Holy Spirit and the mind of Christ, then the Spirit joins our divided minds and transmutes our fleshly separated mind-set into the unified mind of Christ. Automatically we begin to see all things coming to us from the sovereign hand of God. Jesus said it, ―All things are delivered unto me of my Father‖ (Matt. 11:27). It makes no difference whether it comes in an acceptable package or unacceptable evil packages. When we unwrap the package we will see that it really comes from our Heavenly Father who desires only the best and highest for us. ―Life‘s disappointments are veiled love‘s appointments‖ Rev. C.A. Fox. Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon, after learning his lesson, saw and confessed that it was the Most High who ruled in the kingdom of men and gives it to whosoever He wills (Daniel 4:25-37). Even Israel‘s enemy, Nebuchadnezzar saw the truth of Seeing God Only, Although, that didn‘t happen until after God made him a beast for seven years.

I can just hear you ask. What about the scripture that says, ―the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other; so that you cannot do the things that you would,‖ isn‘t that two warring natures striving against each other? The scenario that Paul presents to us in Galatians 5:17 is, yes, a wrestling , but not with flesh and blood, Ephesians 6:12 tells us that. Then what is it describing? It is any of us wrestling with outside Satanic attacks coming in on our fleshly mind attempting to overcome us. But we overcome by the work of faith, not self-effort. It is by replacing the lies we perceive in our minds with God‘s heavenly truth that will set us free. We have to replace what we perceive to be true with the our new mind of truth. We overcome by faith and declare what Paul says in in verse 24 of Galatians 5, They that are Christ‘s have crucified the fleshly separated mind with its satanic affections and lust, and now Christ has given us His new unified mind of Wisdom.

God Means Evil for Good Since God is in total control then it must mean that ―God means evil‖ as well as good. And that does not mean that He just permits it. The fact that He means good is a given, but what about meaning evil? That is a radical statement yet Isaiah 45: 7 says, ―I make peace and create evil, I the Lord do all these things.‖ How can God create evil, or calamity, as some translations say? He created free beings with the capacity to choose good (faith in God) as well as freedom to choose evil (possibility of unbelief), and of course Satan chose evil unbelief. So it is from God‘s created freedom that Satan chose to be the evil being that he is. Therefore God created the possibility of evil by creating freedom. And in that sense ―God creates evil.‖ This verse does not mean that God creates and therefore is the misuse-er Himself. No, Satan is the author of that (Isa. 14; Ezk. 28). But God did create Lucifer, a light bearer, and God knew that out of his God given freedom, Satan would fall into his own hellish trap and bring into being the false kingdom of wrath. Therefore ―God means evil!‖ He does not mean it for evil‘s sake alone, no He means it for our good. God sees evil as a necessary educational opposite and therefore utilizes it for his redemptive purposes. The story of Joseph is well known in our Christians circles, yet many miss the profound statement Joseph made after his brothers had repented of their deeds, Joseph said to his brothers, ―But as for you, you thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.‖ Joseph is clearly saying that God means evil! Most would admit and even give the weaker answer that God permits evil, but Joseph said ―God means it.‖ To say that ―God means evil‖ is a huge leap from the normal separated viewpoint. But saying anything less is making God weak, indecisive and not the determined Lord of all. I love the verses in Acts 4:27-28 which say, ―For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together for to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.‖ If Christ Jesus‘ crucifixion was determined by God, then He means all evils. Crucifying the Son of God was the greatest crime in history, yet it was the Fathers will and His determined counsel. Jesus said his crucifixion was His ―Father‘s cup‖, not the devils. And Isaiah 53 says

that at the Cross, Christ was, ―Smitten of God‖, not smitten of the devil, nor of man, but of God. Isaiah 54:16 says that ―God created the waster to destroy.‖ God knew that Satan would desecrate mankind, and God meant it to be. Why? God has a plan. Romans 8:20 says, ―For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope. Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.‖ Let us define the word ‗vanity.‘ It is good and evil at war with one another causing an unresolved anguish which can never be satisfied. This anguish is also linked with Satan‘s false promises of false powers and flesh fulfillment independent from God. God subjected us to this?

God is still in Control! Could we actually even imagine that God means for us to be deceived and actually chooses our deceptions? ―What?‖ ―No way!‖ The Bible says so: ―I also will choose their delusions and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spoke, they did not hear; but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not‖ (Isa. 45:4). Why? Because, until we are finished with trying to be somebody, or something apart from God, we need to try until we can‘t anymore. Then in our total fatigue from trying so hard and desperation from failing so much, we final get it. We are condition to receive the Spirit‘s release, simply because we have experienced plenty of negative hard knocks, and now we see God uses these hard knocks as building blocks of faith. God handed us innocent babe right into the hands of subtle Satan. But God‘s Wisdom knows that a son, in order to know what it means to be a son of God, has to be confronted by opposites. We are not fully persons until we exercise our royal capacity of choice. And, choice must mean choosing between two alternatives. Wisdom also knows that the babe must take vanity as a false reality, develop it as a false independent identity and suffer the full consequences of unbelief. Then and only then can man be conditioned to receive the opposite kingdom of God and know his true identity as Christ with full experiential knowledge as a mature son. Our first parents fatal choice of disobedience brought into being God‘s ‗curses of mercy‘ which brought them suffering, satanic bondages and negative consequences. God means these consequences to come into full manifestation in us. It is because suffering conditions us. It breaks us down so that we might see and receive the one provision for all sin and evil, the Lord Jesus Christ, and be fully delivered from the bondage of corruption unto the glorious liberty of the children of God. Personally, when I began to see God Only in all my life‘s circumstances, good as well as evil, it unified my divided consciousness and brought great peace in me. My one thought now when all hell breaks out, which it often does, is to say, ―Well God, what are you up to?‖ Seeing God on the front end of all my troubles is so freeing. It ends up being an adventure that transforms adversity into great joy. That does not mean that my soul doesn‘t agonize, for it does, but through my soulish pain, I see a God who can do nothing but good in every aspect of my life…in my family‘s lives…and in my ministry. Now most often His good comes in devilish distorted clothing, and if I stumble at the outer appearances, I will miss His blessings, or maybe just prolong it anyway. Seeing God Only keeps me inwardly steady no matter what is happening outwardly.

Seeing God Only brings us wholeness, oneness and an eternal rest unto our souls. Yet, none of us start off seeing God only, for we all start off sinful, divided, partial, struggling, eating from the tree of knowledge good and evil, and not at all in peace and rest. Hasn‘t mankind fallen into this delusional division through the deception of Satan? And if we now see God only, does that mean that we just deny sin and Satan‘s existence? God forbid! Let me start by quoting several scriptures…One from Romans chapter16, and the other from Zephaniah chapter 3. ―Be wise unto that which is good and simple concerning evil.‖ And ―Thou shall not see evil anymore.‖ When Jesus told his disciples to be wise as serpents and harmless as a dove he did not mean for them to have an immature, ignorant, Polyanna knowledge of evil, and somehow deny its existence by not seeing it anymore. That would be the same falseness that the modern day Christian Scientist attest to. This false thinking brings death and propagates a cross-less oneness without the full understanding of evil and sin or even the acknowledgement of its existence. Which, by the way, if denying evil were the answer, why would Jesus have had to go to the cross? He wouldn‘t have to, because there is no sin to die to, so God‘s redemptive work would have been a farce. Not seeing evil anymore means, that we first do see evil, we see it in its fullest; live in it as a reality; suffer from its consequences; see it‘s Satanic source in ourselves; and experienced its death. Then by the miracle of faith in Christ‘s resurrection we now see it under the feet of our victorious Savior. Therefore when the Prince of this world now comes to tempt us, we like Jesus, know that he has ―no place in us.‖ Now we see Satan‘s very temptations as the necessary opposite to the mighty word of faith which renders Satan powerless and causes us to ―not see evil anymore.‖ We ―see evil no more‖ simply because evil has been experienced, felt and realized in us and then swallowed up by God‘s amazing grace and mercy through the deliverance provided for us at the Cross. We don‘t see evil anymore because we no longer see separation, lack, the devil‘s false independent power, or evil circumstances as separate from God‘s eternal purposes. The devil goes to the background, and God comes fully to the foreground as the one power in the universe. My dear friend Brian Coatney once said this: ―We must experience the total view of sin/Satan and mercy/God in us knowing that neither definition is apart from the other with all opposites accounted for, so that the final swallowing up by mercy attains the full drought of sweetness. (Otherwise, we provide only another Christianized and impotent form of Eastern religious Monism.‖) Alan Parker, another friend of mine said that ―without opposites, we would end up with a gray oneness kind of like a ―New Age‖ shapeless amorphous, which means that our reality would be vague and have no definition or recognizable form‖. So in order to bring definition and distinction to our oneness, let us look right in the face of evil, the force that exists yet not independent from God‘s control and purposes. Let us look at Satan, that great deceiver and spirit of error that dwells in the children of disobedience and then render him powerless by seeing the truth, which dispels his lies, and put him right under the feet of our victorious King Jesus.

Postscript God Means Evil For His Good Purposes I write this part to reiterate again our point that God is Lord and Master of all. These scriptures say it again. God can only be good and do good and never be evil nor do evil, (Titus 1:2; James 1:13). The devil is the author and doer of all evil, not God. However, the scripture says that, ―God created evil‖ (Isa. 45:7). Yet in what sense did He create evil? God created freedom with the possibility of His creatures going the evil way of unbelief, so in an indirect since, He created evil by creating us free beings. So now let us see how God uses the devil‘s misused freedom, which is evil, for His higher eternal purposes, yet still reins sovereign over His creation—(Daniel 2:19-22; 4:32) Opposites seem to contradict each other. However, the Bible clarifies these seeming contradictions. Here are just a few of these scriptures.

God chastises His disobedient sons by using the Assyrians who were Israel‘s enemies, yet they are used as the rod of God‘s anger. ―O, 

Assyria, the rod of my anger, the staff of my fury! And the staff in their hand is my indignation.‖ Isaiah 10:5.

God will take us through deep valleys to cause us to discover great treasures. ―I will give you the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches in 

secret places, that you may know that it is I, The Lord , the God of Israel, who call you by your name.‖ Isaiah 45:3

The greatest evil in all history was when Satan put Jesus on the Cross, yet God meant it for our greatest good. ―Yet it was the will of the Lord 

to bruise him; he has put him to grief; when he makes himself an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring, he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand; he shall see the fruit of the travail of his soul and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous; and he shall bear their iniquities.‖ Isaiah 53:10-11

God is nothing but unconditional LOVE so nothing can be against us, everything is created for our greatest good. ―Behold, I have created the 

smith who blows the fire of coals, and produces a weapon for its purpose. I have also created the ravager to destroy;‖ Isaiah 54:16 

God meant the consequences of the fall to drive us to childlike


―Then the Lord said to him, ―Who has made man‘s mouth? Who makes him dumb, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?‖ Exodus 4:11

God‘s mercy sent Satan to Job, for Job to know that he was not complete in himself, but in God Only. ―And the Lord said to Satan, ―Have you 

considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil? He still holds fast his

integrity, although you moved me against him, to destroy him without a cause.‖ Job 2:3

Job, himself never saw his evil circumstances coming from Satan, but from God. We see through evil to God only. ―But he said to her, ―You 

speak as one of the foolish women would speak. Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?‖ In all this Job did not sin with his lips.‖ Job 2:10

Can the creation be wiser than God, and does God not control all things. ―With him are strength and wisdom; the deceived and the deceiver are 

His.‖ Job 12:16 

Job kept his eyes on God alone, even in his suffering. ―I was at ease,

and He broke me asunder; He seized me by the neck and dashed me to pieces; He set me up as his target.‖ Job 16:12

Even Job‘s family didn‘t see Satan‘s power, but instead said that God was responsible for all that happened to Job. ―Then came to him all his 

brothers and sisters and all who had known him before, and ate bread with him in his house; and they showed him sympathy and comforted him for all the evil that the Lord had brought upon him; and each of them gave him a piece of money and a ring of gold.‖ Job 42:11

God chastens whom He loves.

―Know then in your heart that, as a man disciplines his son, the Lord your God disciplines you.‖ Deuteronomy 8:5 

Afflictions come from God too. ―Thou didst bring us into the net; thou didst lay affliction on our loins;‖ Psalms 66:1; ―For I eat ashes like bread, and mingle tears with my drink, because of thy indignation and anger; for thou hast taken me up and thrown me away.‖ Psalms 102:9; ―If you will remain in this land, then I will build you up and not pull you down; I will plant you; and not pluck you up; for I repent of the evil which I did to you.‖ Jeremiah 42:10 

Job sees only God. ―I am the man who has seen affliction under the rod of

His wrath; He has driven and brought me into darkness without any light; surely against me He turns his hand again and again the whole day long. He has made my flesh and my skin waste away, and broken my bones; he has besieged and enveloped me with bitterness and tribulation; He had made me dwell in darkness like the dead of long heavy chains on me; though I call an cry for help, He shuts out my prayer; He has blocked my ways with hewn stones, he has made my paths crooked. He is to me like a bear lying in wait, like a lion in hiding; he led me off my way and tore me to pieces; He has made me desolate; He bent His bow and set me as a mark for his arrow. He drove into my heart the arrows of his quiver; I have become the laughingstock of all peoples, the burden of their songs all day long. He has filled me with bitterness, He has made me drunken with wormwood. He has also broken my teeth with gravel stones, He has covered me with ashes. And you have removed my soul far off from peace; I have forgotten prosperity. And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from the Lord.‖ Lamentations 3:1-18.

The baptism of Fire is from God. ―Beloved, do not be surprised at the

fiery ordeal which comes upon you to prove you, as though something strange were happening to you.‖ I Peter 4:12; ―Thus says the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against you out of your own house.‖ II Samuel 12:11; ―I will restore to you the years which the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and cutter, my great army, which I sent among you.‖ Joel 2:25; ―Is a trumpet blown in a city, and the people are not afraid? Does evil befall a city, unless the Lord has done it?‖ Amos 3:6

Just because God uses evil, evil acts are not justified, nor do they go unpunished. ―Behold I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the 

Lord, and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and I will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations. I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, and sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle and this land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years, and it shall come to pass when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation saith the Lord for their iniquity…I will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their own hands.‖ Jeremiah 25:9-12&14

Wrap-Up The Apostle Paul wraps it all up when he shares with us what the Holy Spirit said to him about his personal weaknesses, his sufferings; and his infirmities. Jesus said to him, ―my grace is sufficient for you; for my strength is made perfect in weakness.‖ ―For when I am weak, then powerful I am‖ (II Cor. 12:9-10). Also in another place Paul says, ―The suffering of this present time is not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed.‖ Opposites unified into one reality. Suffering and glory united together into one glorious adventurous faith life, and the lion and the lamb lie down together as friends. Seeing through all evil to ―God Only‖ is the road to maturity as well as to our final fixation in our union with Christ. In all things let us: ―Look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.‖

This song written in 1700 century best expresses my heart: ―Come, Thy Fount of Every Blessing‖ was written by Robert Robertson in 1757.

“Come thy fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing thy grace. Streams of mercy never ceasing, Call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet, Sung by flaming tongues above. Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it, Mount of God’s unchanging love!”1 1

“Come, Thy Fount of Every Blessing” was written by Robert Robertson in 1757.

I will have a new question for you to answer each month. Please send me your answers and I will post the best ones. [email protected]



―I think God is a safe God because He is self for other's and not self for self. I also think He is fixed in this nature because He gave His son on the cross willing to redeem man. Satan opened up the self for self nature when he exalted himself above God. He tricked man to receive the same nature in the Garden of Eden when man ate of the tree so he could dwell inside of man. Karen Norris Comment: Karen, you have great answers. God has a Cross in His heart (―He cannot lie‖) and can only be a fixed poured out lover. That means that He could have been for himself like Satan, and choose not to be. Wow, God is free too, that is why he created us free to choose between alterative. Love you, Sylvia



experience opposites. When first created by God, man had somewhat of a embryonic consciousness, not really knowing who he was nor how to operate as a son of God. In order to have conscious knowing there had to be an exchange of opposites. Man in a sense, had to fall into the devils hands, suffer the consequence of sin, and by grace find his way back home through the cross to his father, thereby qualifying him through experience to be a safe son.



SONS? Answer to the question by Karen: The purpose of God in his Son is to manifest himself to the world and to redeem fallen man. Jesus is the manifested form of the Father. The family of son's are vessel's to contain the spirit of God to manifest himself. Also the son's are co heirs with Christ. Good answer Karen!


WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT WE HUMANS HAVE ONLY ONE OF TWO DEITY NATURES, AND HAVE NO ―HUMAN NATURE‖ OF OUR OWN? Sylvia Pearce answers: ―There are many who contest this question and say that it is not Biblical. To the contrary, to those who have eyes to see, this truth is hidden in plain sight. First of all, what is nature? This word is most misunderstood. When the Bible speaks ―nature‖ is speaks of our Spirit indweller, and the power source of our actions. Before we are saved, we are indwelt by Satan, who uses our bodily members to produce and express his rebellious self for self nature. Now that we are redeemed, Christ uses His/our bodily members to express His holy self-for-others through. So, we can only be indwelt by one or the other deity nature in our spirit center at the same time. However, if we are unaware of the function of our humanity, we can by deception yield your bodily members to sinful acts of unbelief (Romans 6:12). The point is that the human being has no power source of its own. The human is the branch not the vine; vessel, not the content; and so on. Galatians 2:20 says it is, ―Not the human I, but Christ who lives in me.‖ And Romans 7:17 says that it is not the human I, but sin that dwells in me. Whether walking in the Spirit or in the flesh, it is never the human I that can produce righteousness or sin. I always say, ―If the human being by its supposed nature can produce on ounce of sin of its own power, then there is a strong possibility that the human can produce its own righteousness. If that be the case, then we wouldn‘t need a Savior at all.‖ Karen Norris answers: ―Because human's were designed to be vessel's to contain a deity, and at birth we have the nature of Satan. Then when we become born again God replace's that nature with his own. To think we have a nature of our own is the trick Satan is trying to deceive us with.‖


THE WAY BY WHICH WE ARE DELIVERED FROM SIN AND SINS THROUGH THE BLOOD AND BODY OF CHRIST? Bloodshed is what God required for forgiveness of sins. Christ went to the Cross as our replacement and shed his blood once and for all so when we accept Him as our

savior our sins are forgiven and can no longer put us in hell. Instead of an animal sacrifice once a year He was that sacrifice. The body death of Christ, there again represents Him replacing us so His nature can move into our spirit replacing the nature of Satan in our body as his dwelling place. Which was stolen from us at the fall and Satan deceiving us to believe it is just ourselves. Satan being sin and sins being the fruit of sin. I want to thank you for doing these questions. They really make me think about things. Love Karen Norris

Maybe more of you will take the challenge.

Meredith‘s Crosses ________________________________ Statement of Purpose and Statement of Faith

It must be understood that the full value of the teaching on ―the Liberating Secret‖ web-site are for those to whom John 3:16 has become a reality. They as Jesus said, have been ―born-again,‖ and can ―see the kingdom of God.‖

Now, knowing they are a new creation in Christ and the Spirit bearing His fruit, they are concerned about those areas of failure and even sins in their lives. These teachings, therefore, are for those who want to ―leaving the first principles of the doctrine of Christ‖ (Heb. 6:1) and ―seek to go on to perfection.‖ Their sins have been blotted out by faith in the shed blood of Christ and they are justified by His resurrection. But now, what troubles them is the many discordant reactions of their self life and daily living.

Our Calling We believe that our calling is to share what Martin Luther boldly proclaimed to his generation: that God intends to make of us a ―race of Christs‘.‖ Having had, from the Holy Spirit, the revelation of our personal union with Christ, we see it as our commission to share this liberating awareness with the entire Church around the world. Our foundation is the Cross of Jesus Christ. We wholeheartedly embrace the evangelical position and doctrine as set out in the Apostles‘ Creed--emphasizing everyone‘s need for salvation, which is only available through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ. We believe that Paul clearly teaches that there are two aspects to the gospel of Jesus Christ:  to proclaim the saving Gospel to those without Christ.  to proclaim the mystery of the Gospel—―which is Christ in you the hope of glory,‖ to those of us who are already Christians. We see ourselves as a two-fold ministry (to the lost as well as to the saved) although, our outreach is to be primarily to born-again Christians who desire to move on from ―the elementary teaching about Christ,‖ to full maturity in Christ. We believe that maturity is only attained as a person becomes aware by Spirit revelation of ―the mystery once hidden but now made manifest...which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.‖ Along with this revelation of who we contain, we also see the truth concerning the human vessel. We understand that the human doesn‘t have a nature of his own, but instead only derives the nature of the Spirit who indwelling us. Therefore, we humans are not independent self-operating-selves and never have been. We were a vessel containing Satan, and now through the Cross, we are vessels containing Christ. Christ, Our Life Ministries is dedicated to bring an expanded awareness of this mystery of the gospel to the Twenty First-century Church of Christ. We purpose to share those truths that enable Christians to know who they are in Christ, and build them up in the most holy faith. This faith will give unto them the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. That the eyes of their understanding be enlightened that they may know what is the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints (Ephesians 1:17-18). The outgrowth of this revelation will ultimately manifest fruit in the form of a life lived for others. As God so loved the world that He gave His Son, so we too will give our lives for others that the world might experience that abundant life which only comes as a person knows inner ―completeness‖ and ―Perfection‖ in Christ. With Paul

we say, ―We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ‖ (Col. 1:28).
