Yes, it is true…
Life offers us simple indistinguishable sticky notes, reminders.
Oh the mirror, yes, the mirror.
Look in the mirror. Everything, absolutely all is reversed, backwards. The sticky note that there will be no way conceivable for us to implement it (mirror) to reveal exactness, truth. IE; Appearances are not to be used to interpret the worth of a thing. Our true value is within, the cargo, the content. The content determines the worth of our output.
I am not speaking, for example about a correct, proper reasoning individual, brought up with a “positive outlook”, as in that prose which says; “If you bring up a child with..”. No. And why not? Because the “Converse” can create all that too. IE we can be deceived by one who is driven to achieve whilst that individual could have been fashioned out of “Not positive but negative circumstances.” Such a thing is part of the “Human” equation. IE The Biblical equation. And mind you, so called “science” cannot arrive at this because they have a phobia concerning the Bible and Religion (True Religion). If you examine my posts, though all you have at the moment is a “inkling” that “he (me) might have something here (in what I say) about the converse opposing circumstances and the positive formulated circumstances employed for indoctrination, breeding.”
We are reminded by the mirror that we pose, posture, primp in front of it, and why so? Because we have a need to identify with value. We are in need of value. This is why the mind of man fashioned “Religions”. This is why what Christ offers is not “Religion”. He even took time to warn us against religion.
If you wish to know the difference, it is this; Religions offer us identification with value, while Christ offers us Life.
That simple, yes.
Therefore it is not what goes into a man that will defile him, no, but what comes out seeing as he is already defiled and in need of a constitutional makeover.
KJV Matthew 15:11
Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
So basically, what we purvey, what we preach, the ideals we live by, they must defile us, and why? Because they come out of our consignment. Out from our configuration. For we are damaged goods. What we see all around are but examples, extremes. Do not be deceived we are not different than the worst, we are in need of repurchase, redemption. A change is required of us inside. Jesus came to provide that rebirth.
Okay, what have I said in Matthew 15:11?
Our concerns are basic, but the “Basic” is contaminated. So we are busy with physical health. The body’s well being. We are concerned with diseases. With longevity upon this earthly plane. The mirror can testify to this. But we were placed here upon this earth to weed us out. We are already the Tares. Start out as tares. We are to be weighed in the balances.
Does he or doesn’t he possess the Life of God?
With the life of Adam, one is fit for Discard, for nothingness, for oblivion.
It is not a matter of whether you have been good enough, no. Good while in the Adamic flesh counts for naught.
“It is finished.” Christ said upon the Cross, and with good reason since He was the 2nd Adam, come not to fail us, but to deliver us. He performed faithfully all that was needed for us to have a 2nd start.
Outwardly you might see like in a mirror, Miguel, but inwardly He (The Son of God) has come to live within. This is why I write these things. He instructs me, he gives me wisdom.
