Curious How…..

The “Duality Coin” works.

A coin made up of counterparts. Seemingly like the representation of a opposite, and a negative.

The Duality Coin (I will illustrate).

A great example of it is; How we respond to Negative things. How intimidation is pronounced through our being at a time of panic, the desertion of our certainty and calm.

Peter walking upon the water.

There is the little child in us, who loves novelty and curiosity. It should be noted that, though fickle, it is this feature in our breast which is summoned forth of God in the battle for our faith.

Tell you a secret….

Hush, listen….

It is that very ridiculous, fickle child, for which the battle field was designed. Only that child has the will to lose it all, or win it all.


It is that child which we strive to suppress, and thereby would have to, perhaps one day, go into that dusty old attic of the one true sincere love we possessed, confined to the breast of that fickle child, bear the pure tear upon it, which will enable us to retrieve it. Succor it from the societal do’s and don’ts. Succor it from delusions and illusions.

Dust it off and claim it, and proclaim it to the world.

Ah, one day…..

It is that child which is subject to impulse which will empower us.

Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

And he said, Come.

Were it not for the instinct, provided by that child, that inspired curiosity, fired from the Spirit, Peter would not have been able to walk upon the water.

For it was that very feature which opened the byways of trust, which grasped unto the “Come”. The Eternal Come. It is out there.

It is out there.

Calling. Hoping that the little, though fickle, yet power releasing child within each and everyone one of us would feel its predicament. And feeling it (its state of minus, state of loss) would respond to that “Come”.

But yet, its fickleness.

The other side to the Coin.

Power has two sides, like a two sided coin.

And seeing the wind boisterous, Peter began to sink.


The same faith, appertaining to that fickle mind was stolen. Fear was inspired within Peter’s breast.

Satan hath desired to sift you as wheat..

That is how we are categorized by Satan; something to be harvested.

He harvest’s for our Faith. He is in the market to harvest the “little child” faith within all of us.

Do not sleep on this; faith is the Soul.

Its allegiance falls under the questioning, interrogative techniques of trials and adverse circumstances.

But why do I submit for scrutiny, the two sided coin?

Our susceptibility to one thing can rule that we are susceptible to its counterpart.

So well rounded is the engine of faith.

God’s configuration of a whole is composed of three parts.

Ours is, due to our being a fallen, and flawed creation (a soul/body being), configured of two parts. So it is that our drive is fueled from our voidedness, and is envisioned in Dualities.

On the one hand we witness from Peter; The curiosity of the child evinced by him, yearning for this novel experience of breaking the natural laws, walking upon water.

On the other hand we witness, evoked from Peter, the counterpart of this elation; The Void, the pit of despair within is evoked, resulting in the breaking of the connection which enabled him to connect with the Power of God which can enable man to break the Natural Stronghold.

Do not be deceived, do not settle for less. Should we strive for masteries merely in this arena of the Natural and fallen, we are swallowed up by the mundane. We, in essence accept the rules governing this domain.

No, the third item for completion, on our behalf so that we are not confined by Dualities is God. Let’s open the grave which inters that fickle little child. The one who can empower Faith.

Shatter the confines of the Void within, make room for the empowering inhabitant, summoned by the belief, “Lord, if it be thou………

You finish the phrase.

  1. That is so good, I don’t know how to explain it, but I do know Peter connected with God, I did read he doubted God,(not sure) but memory from my reading. Peter turned his life around to help God. I hope I have this right. Yes your post is very thought provoking, that is what draws me to the Bible each time you read something think you have it locked away in your brain, read it again and something else pops out at you. And you see it in another light.

    1. Thank you for dropping in and reading that. Glad you could relate to it. And your observation concerning the reading of the Word is correct. It is the Spirit in us which in filling us more with each trip we make to the things relative to God, enables us to grow, thus with each attempt, with each hungering step, the filling proceeds. So goes the occupation of questing, searching the things of God.
      Glad you were able to identify with it.


      1. Thank you. I try. I have a message to put out there. I try to do it from different perspectives, less I lose the audience. I try not to get “preachy” but I do at times try to convey what I see in the Gospel that the world might need help envisioning. So there will be some sentiment in what I write some times. And yes I do want to provoke thought, because I feel that the Church has difficulty with language in reaching the multitudes.
        Thanks for visiting again. Will visit your site.


      2. As representing the Gospel message, we must not assume that folks understand scripture. No, it is our responsibility to “represent” the scripture. If we have the Holy Spirit’s companionship then we can say it (scripture) with different representations, examples, etc.. I speak in general (not directed at you). After all, if we have had the good fortune to have fallen into His Graces, then we, as Ambassadors are sufficed, equipped to say it again with different illustrations, what is wrong with that? Nothing, provided we don’t misrepresent the rules, guidelines. I have for the most part received the blessings of the learned in the Scriptures. I don’t want to preach, speak of a new Gospel, no the old one is good enough for me. But I don’t wish anyone’s blood on my hands for whom I could have painted a clearer picture. Ttyl

  2. Until we become like little Children Mike, dependent and Trusting, we cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.

    Luke 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

    Luke 17: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.

    One of the greatest deceptions today is that God deliberately afflicts us and if we believe that He does or willingly allows it, we won’t Trust Him and so Satan wins and keeps us in fear. Without Trust there is no Love , without Love there is no Freedom.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

    Blessings – Anne.

    Hello again. Here’s a well received old post. It is a good lesson on Duality and adversity in our lives. A simple and well illustrated in steps, breakdown. At its end you say “So….uh huh…well….Ummm???? And if you don’t mail in for a refund.
