Eternity > Time | Eyes + Ears

"No one said Life was Fair "
"Hmm well that depends...
-How do you define Life in relationship to Time?

I woke up this morning with dialogue running through my head, 
& I for one,  love those conversations  ;)

If one views Time with the expectation of “Now", then one really isn't considering Time at all.  As a person who loves to cook, the phrase "Life isn't fair!”  begs me to draw a correlation.   Great meals usually take a lot of time, and if one were expecting it "now" they'd be disappointed.  How much more the aim and trajectory of a man’s life?  

Patience is a Virtue, and Understanding comes from God.

The Righteous live by Faith (which is the substance of that which is not seen) so the merits of a life lived to the Glory of God may not be realized in this, our small section of time on this earth.  But in the Eternal...  is where we should lay up our treasures, for God keeps account of all things,  and He Rewards those who seek after His Righteousness :)

“We walk by Faith and not by sight.”   Is an indicator of how strongly disturbing and deceiving that which we see and hear may be, and how destructive it can be  to the inner man.  That beautiful inner compass, the heart, from which flows the issues and springs of life.  Guard it well.  
God speaks to us there ...

What we see and hear becomes what we meditate on, and what we speak.
And to whom we talk becomes the one whom we look to for encouragement, comfort and reinforcement of our perspectives.   If you look to Foolish men, you’ll reinforce that manner of thinking, and if you look to Godly men you’ll be the wiser for it... 

I'm thankful for my Godly friends out there :)

We live in a Binary universe, within the sandwich of polarity lies the “Reality” of our 3rd dimension.  This dimension we live in is of Time.  We occupy vessels, and our bodies like clothes can be put to do works…

We’re motivated to action by one will or another. 
Some aim To Magnify the Will  and the Work of  the True light,
Some aim To Magnify the Will and the Work of the False light.  

There are two types of Desires:

 Holy Desire which builds up, encourages, and uplifts
 and Unholy Desire which tears down, devours, destroys profanes, and exploits. 
There are two types of light:
Sun and Moonlight, which are from Above:
The Light  from Below : which attracts Moths  and other creatures of the night, and watery deep.    -Fireflies and Moths’ mating energy registers as light to their range of vision.
The True light burns your eyes.   You can’t look directly at it for its brilliance.  It allows you to choose for yourself,  and makes all things clear so that you can move about freely,  without stumbling.  Its energy is strong and it excites the molecules so much that there is expansion, and friction,  and burning.  (The Virtue and Holiness of Christ burns the retinas, and disturbs the wicked to their bones Plants grow by it and thrive.     (We're considered as "Trees planted by the water" Psalm 1:3,  Jer 17:8)   In the evening ,  the moon comforts the eyes to rest,  yet her light illumines our paths ... In the Beginning, God formed them both.  
No thing can grow by the false light:  The light emitted by the Anglerfish is such that on the other side are jaws, which lust to bite a tender morsel.    It uses light as a lure to deceive.   Moths frequently flock to open torches and electric lights -  The Light and the heat broadcasts a signal that screams of sexual availability...Such is the Light of the Deep,  or the False Light.
False light is born from the fire of a Devourer.    It makes a prey of that which it attracts.
It excites the passions to matters of the fleshly comforts of life.

The False Light Lures people into considering Time to be greater than Eternity ...

Peter speaks very specifically of the tactics used by false teachers, who lure by means of sensuality in chapter 2 ,  because of them,  the way of truth will be blasphemed .  And in their greed they will exploit you with false words.   (1 Peter 2:2-3) 

That which we set our minds and our hearts to do while we’re alive...  Is the shore we aim for and run towards through Time, in the Eternal we are so rewarded.   If we love God, and yearn to be with Him, we seek to see his face in all things.   If we hate God and seek to be away from him, some desire to have that too.  They can't bare the heat of the sun.

If we seek our own glory, we may have it, though the price is the anxiety and worry of keeping it.   If we seek to satisfy your lusts by following the dim (and failing) comfort of a Lie, we waste away.. . And reap only bitterness, or the living death.   - A hard, callous and stubborn heart paralyzed by fear - voracious and wicked, and like Vampires when the sun does rise, all turn to ash.
  Yet if we seek the Glory of the one who sent us, Keeping in mind the Eternal First, and Time as Secondary, whether by goodly deeds and actions, Right Thinking and aiming to Live a Life Pleasing to Him who Sits on the throne,   so do our efforts yield a reward at the Throne first and from there all good things flow to  us through time.   And when the sun rises, we all will shine as the sun and grow on towards his Kingdom Come.

Those who are servants of God.. Look to the hand of God for all things, and he bestows all good things to those who love him. 
 God grants to his beloved long life.   By those who persist in defiling of themselves, and their life,   with sensuality and carnality. The small comforts therein waste into only more hunger  & misery in this life, and the next.

Seek His Face,
Eternity >  Time
Aim High

Heavenly Dwelling - Feast of Booths: ( Teepee | Wigwam )

Our Dwelling in the Third Heaven

"He who builds his upper chambers in the heavens and founds his vault upon the earth; who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out upon the surface of the earth— The LORD is his name. "
Amos 9:6

For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened -- not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.

He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee...

... So whether we are at home or away we make it out aim to please him.

For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.

2 Corinthians 5

Perspectives Dia-Mind

Seek First the Kingdom of Heaven,

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field,which a man found and covered up.
Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he had and buys that field.
-Matt 13:44

Perspective shifts, are extremely difficult to illustrate.
"...But when i became a man i put away childish things"

I have had a very strong shift in perspective,
which I desire and aim to maintain-
The Third Heaven.    (2 Corinthians 12:2 )

For there is where my treasure and my spirit lies. 
invested in Eternal Life with God the Father of Glory, 
not as much "in Time" which leads to Angst and Worry

        (May all my actions in time )
  Eternity         (Be in step with His Spirit)


Support For Artists - My Thoughts are Higher

Martin Luther  -  Perspective Shift
Struck by Lightning 1505. A lightening bolt struck near to Martin Luther as he was returning to school. Terrified, he cried out, "Help, St. Anne! I'll become a monk!" Spared of his life, but regretting his words, Luther kept his bargain, dropped out of law school and entered the monastery there."

Martin Luther  applied his law-trained mind, to the Scriptures in the Church.    And his keen awareness of the Presence of The Father of Glory was of such prominence,  that his whole life was as a brush stroke of insight and Holy Spirit-filled Power.   The product of his perspective shift,  brought the medicine of the Gospel to a people free,  and freed many people from the bottleneck of the Catholic Religious System.

Perhaps such a perspective shift,  is as a glimpse of Objective Perspective.  We generally experience life Subjectively, and most of humanity holds to that desire ..to declare the subjective as objective.  

The Scriptures Rx were written from a Top Down, Perspective -  by His Spirit of Holiness, which frustrates a fleshly mind to think to a different degree.  The Scriptures prescribe a viewing angle of the world our human options within this time we have on earth.. and how our actions manifest towards Life and Light or Death and Decay within our bodies, and within our souls.  

People are so concerned wit what is right before their eyes,  that they are almost so afraid to actually think.   When one does think about these things and view themselves under the light of scrutiny, the tendency is to question whether one was previously thinking at all.  

I love how Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones spoke in one of his sermons...  "If you love to Think,  be a Christian"  I'll summarize -  There is no higher thought than to plan and posit your motions in line with the actions of an Holy^3  God. 

Father is also "The Most High"... He has the most objective perspective of all.

Living in this strata of The Creation,  on Earth,  as we go about our daily tasks and hug our routines, or break them, on the X axis of Time and Place,  I seek to constantly return my awareness back to the Y axis -  the realm of the Heavenlies,  where exists the Father and the Son seated side by side  observing the goings on of our Flatland world.

...and I for one feel privileged... blessed and loved,  in knowing that all things are always going according to plan. so long as i do my best and acknowledge him in all my ways, He will direct my path.  (Proverbs 3:6 )All things work together for the Good of those who Love The Father of Glory.

Sitting out in the backyard, where once there was a high-walled fence, I marveled at the beautiful vision,  of low laying shrubs against tiny brick homes,  various trees tiered against a dusky sky.  milk white window panes, to other worlds...  a kind of Matrix cookie cutter simplicity.  I listen to the  gentle sound of tires rolling softly on the asphalt river of my street.  

I remember places i've been and how anxious i was for a new thrill,  but now,    i see how beautiful the whole of creation is...  How he laid the foundation for gravity,  and made the breeze feel good against the skin, how the color and pattern of soft grass beneath the feet is a pleasure and a comfort to the eye and to the touch,  and how the day gives way to night in a way that lulls one to sleep...  

Each day,  book-ended by  Rosy dawns and Golden sunsets,  and in this Macrocosm of beauty,  our petri dish of life,   we human beings can think of the High places in the Heavens ,  and wonder what we must appear like to the Father and Son who weigh the heart.. 

A perfect time to offer prayer, thanks and dwell in fellowship with God... 

Such was the original Harmony of the Universe,  and so it will be again.  

New Heaven,  New Earth.
