“Begin with the desired outcome and feel it as though it has taken place.”
In the days of Jesus, the Pharisees and Saducees (known as Rabbis) had sat on the law maker seats in the Sanhedrin making so many laws it was impossible for the people to know them all, let alone follow them. Religion had wrapped rules and dogma around the free God given principles. Jesus came to take those rules and dogma off of the necks of the people so they could have life and have it more abundantly. So that they could pray and their prayers be heard. He showed the people the way of the Lord God and how to follow that way. It was the way to the light of God. Jesus said, “Come, follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19 KJV
Matthew 4:23-25 23And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. 25And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
The Lord taught his disciples “the way” to do the things that He did and more so that they could go into the nations and teach others. His teachings empowered the masses to be one with the Father and many of the things he spoke have been withheld from us but have resurfaced through the writings found in desert places.
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls are the oldest testimony of the old testament, and the Nag Hammadi library are the oldest records of the new testament.
Within these are found many missing links to both our history and understanding the missing pieces of Genesis, and the how Enoch walked with God for 375 years and why God took him up into the heavens. We learn of the watchers and the fallen angel realm as well as how the keys to the light are to be used. For within them are truths and ways that were not told us. Nothing that is hidden shall stay hidden…all is revealed.
So why were they hidden? In a nutshell, it was to withhold knowledge that empowered the people with the way to overcome evil. This world is given to Satan to rule for a little while and he sure wasn’t going to just let it be overpowered by those doing God’s will.
So, as time passed, those sitting in seats of power withheld books that would empower the masses. They became forbidden and were deemed unorthodox. Yet, the same who forbid them kept copies for their own librarys. There were burnings of the books written about Jesus and many translations left out key words and sentences. Whether by design or lack of understanding, this happened. In transcribing and leaving out key sentences and words that were keys to understanding His teachings more clearly. Out of Jesus’s entire ministry we have 4 gospels and most of the red letter teachings are the same events…with a few things told differently. And some books have a few more events than they others. Such as the book of John has the wedding at Cana which we now know was Qatna.
These teachings were forbidden by Constantine. There were 43 plus books hidden to preserve them and are now revealed to the public. Constantine and his theologians believed that the people shouldn’t have such power? But, just as the Lord said in Matthew 16, upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. The truth shall set you free. How? By applying the truth of the way into your life.
With these scrolls, codices and books we have instruction on how to understand and apply the teachings Jesus told his disciples of how to be the light in the world. Nothing that is hidden shall stay hidden…all shall be revealed.
The Gospel of Thomas shows us a hidden truth.
We learn how to feel from within as though the outcome has already happened.
You must make your thought and emotion one.
You must have the anticipation of the joy… anticipation of the way you will feel. Anticipation of the way you will be. Feel the happiness. Feel the love. Feel the goodness. Feel the success. Feel the victory. Feel the win.
Use your seven senses and feel it, see it, smell it, hear it, touch it, taste it and give thanks for it. Sense it and manifest it. Be one with it.
Gospel of Thomas verse 106 translated from the Nag Hammandi Library in Aramaic into Greek. In the translation there were two lines that were omitted. Those were, “When you make the two – thought and emotion one”.
For whatever reason, some of the most important words were left out in the translation of Thomas from Aramaic into Greek. These two sentences were key.
Gospel of Thomas, Verse 106 “When you make the two – thought and emotion one, you will say to the mountain, mountain move away and the mountain will move away.”
Gospel of Thomas, Verse 48 Jesus said: If two make peace with one another in this house, they shall say to the mountain: Be moved, and it shall be moved.
“If the two make peace with each other in this one house” – (He is speaking of you, for you are the house of God and the temple now).
Thomas followed the teacher which is Jesus the Christ and he recorded the words of the teacher.
Gospel of Thomas, Verses 49-50: “49 Jesus said: Blessed are the solitary and the elect, for you shall find the kingdom; for you came forth thence, and shall go there again. 50. Jesus said: If they say to you: Whence have you come?, tell them: We have come from the light, the place where the light came into being through itself alone. It [stood], and it revealed itself in their image. If they say to you: Who are you?, say: We are his sons, and we are the elect of the living Father. If they ask you: What is the sign of your Father in you?, tell them: It is a movement and a rest.“
In the translated Greek to English they omitted the two sentences and this is what they translated it to say: ”Whatsoever ye ask the Father in my name, he will give it to you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name.“
It should have been translated as this:
But they left out a key and very important sentence. “Ask without hidden motive and be surrounded by your answer.”
Being surrounded is to “feel as if… in your whole being know that you have what it is you ask for. Feel it with all your senses…see it, taste it, hear it, touch it, smell it, know it…believe it, give praise for it, be joyful in having it. i.e. You are feeling as though you already have it.
It should read, “Ask without hidden motive and be surrounded by your answer. All things that you ask straight directly, from inside my name, you will be given. So far you have not done this.”
To ask without hidden motive is to ask without judgement. It is to ask from the heart. Having the heart of David…a man with sin…whose heart was right with God. Having faith that God hears him and David saw God with his heart. David had a heart of repentance.
Psalm 51:1-4 “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your loving kindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Your sight—that You may be found just when You speak, and blameless when You judge.”
Psalm 51:10-13 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted to You.”
They asked Jesus …how do we communicate with God? Jesus told them…
In John 16:23 it says– “Whatsoever you ask the father in my name, he shall give it to you. Ask and ye shall receive and your joy shall be full.
In John 16:23 KJV it says – 23“And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. 24Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
The Holy Spirit is the key to understanding the way. You cannot learn the wisdom without the Holy Spirit coming to you and teaching you.
“All things that you ask straightly, directly from inside my name, you will be given. Ask without hidden motive and be surrounded by your answer. Be enveloped by what you desire that your gladness be full.”
Asking without hidden motive is asking you to ask without being attached to the outcome. God’s will be done.
Be surrounded by the outcome you desire…your answer. Feel it, be in it in your thinking, feeling with all of your senses. Feel it and be as though you were with it already. Feel the joy and gladness of having it. See in your eye all that you are asking and feel it surrounding you with all of your seven senses.
In the Book of 2 Enoch it is written that God made Adam with 7 senses.
On the 6th day, I commanded My Wisdom to create man out of the seven components:
1: His flesh from earth
2. His blood from dew and from the sun
3. His eyes from the bottomless sea
4. His bones from stone
5. His reason from mobility of angels and from clouds
6. His veins and hair from grass of the earth
7. His spirit from my spirit from My Spirit and from the wind
And I gave him 7 properties:
- hearing to the flesh;
- sight to the eyes;
- smell to the spirit;
- touch to the sinews;
- taste to the blood;
- to the bones – endurance;
- to the reason – sweetness.
When you ask inside God’s name, without hidden motive, surrounded by your answer and enveloped by what you desire as though it has been fulfilled and you are full of gladness…you will be given. You are coming from a place where you are seeing and feeling from the heart and the mind that your prayer has already been answered. You feel it, touch it, taste it, smell it, reason it, see it deep within down to the bones.
The computer was designed around our mind, body, communication with God and the creation….and the outcomes are what we put into it…it was man trying to duplicate God’s creation and now with trying to chip man…they seek to steal free will and have total control over the power each has to think, feel and choose for that threatens the existence of the dark principalities and powers. Now we see CERN as a device to recreate the energy of the light…but it will not succeed.
Satan has taken the knowledge of God’s creation through God’s light and attempted to duplicate it and be a god. He cannot succeed. He has lost. The same as the tower of Babel…they will be babbled.
Just as in the method our most sophisticated computer systems work today in their programming…there is a declaration… a function…and a close.
We have that within us given freely to us by God …it is the light of the Holy Spirit and the truth and the way to life abundantly…it is wisdom.
Our prayers manifest when we know the procedure to have them manifest. It is all within the light of God. How God made us to communicate with Him through the Holy Spirit and with the Creation He made.
Give the declaration of what you want. See it, feel it, with your senses and give thanks for receiving it. In the closure you are acknowledging that it is already done. The same as our Lord did to the people in their healings. “Pick up your bed and walk”. The crippled would pick up their bed and walk when they believed for they saw it….or did the Lord transfer it? The woman who touched the hem of his garment knew that by touching it, she would be healed. She saw it and felt it and when she touched it in her belief she was healed. When at that moment the Lord felt an energy go from Him he asked…”who touched me?” No one knew what he meant for many had been pressing against them and him. How is it that he asked who touched me when so many were? The Lord wanted the one with faith to be known…for He already knew. Her witness and the crowd seeing…were amazed. For the one who touched him with faith…with seeing and believing was healed…others were touching him… but in vain.
Why is this? Could it be the principals of believing were not present in the others?
Remember always… God searches the heart and if your heart is not with Him… you need to get that right first, so you can serve him in his Kingdom.
Keep on Pressing into the Kingdom of God! Press, press, press!
