1 John 2:15-16: “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.”
Being born-again for 44 years, seeing what money does to most people, I’m thankful I’ve never been money motivated. Sure it has some drawbacks. But as a father, administrator and mentor I try to demonstrate how much we have without anything from this world.
These “notices” (food for thought meals) show up and are often overlooked because of lack of “hunger”” … but believe you me, hunger, even starvation, is just around the corner for most people. Most people do not have their thoughts on God as much as they do on Satan … fear actually rules the ungodly, in fact, Fear is the very sign and the “calling card” of the Devil.
In “Binary” terms, the real value is with the “1” and the comparative least value is with the “0” … Satan would have you believe (and he does it through lies and deceit) that his value, world wealth, is the only real value, and he does that by insisting that his $ is the “mark of value”, then through “manipulation” of your thinking, that $ is falsely propped up and distorted above its relationship to anything else of comparative value, such as the metals Silver and Gold. Comparative worth’s are reversed, turned upside down.
In a False Economy claimed Real, and held in place via lies that create fears, fear of alternatives to that condition, such as Gold and Silver being comparatively “in-realistic” to the degree that one hold comparative preferences of choice to be $ based, one “should” realize the truth of the matter, that The Metals actually hold the greater value based upon a contentment that would dispel fear were one to actually trust it.
When the value is determined in vested wealth based upon the Devils terms, with the $ holding a believed higher worth than Nature’s Silver and Gold, then in relative terms, God is devalued and admitted or not, Satan is promoted.
Such a valuation, is a temporal worldly determination, and is doomed, in the long term, to fail. Anything where falsehoods are promoted as truth in place of Real truth, is simply an act of Satan placing himself over and above God, in REAL terms, simply a Lie doomed to self-destruction.
Man as defined solely in egoistic terms, is the ultimate in the eyes of said ego, there is no God of value and worth in his eyes because as a living physical Being, he is the “rule” by which all else is compared. Where the five physical senses are the limitation of perceived wealth, then the Spiritual and the Metaphysical are of no comparative worth. God is displaced by Satan in such thinking. Fear holds sway because Love is not trusted. With thinking like that, there is only room for one outcome, and it is not good for ones health, mental nor physical, because in false thinking there is only room for the one “perceived” of higher worth, meaning destruction of the other. As the mind goes, so does the body. A mind devoid of God and the real attributes of comparative wealth, decrease in things of true value is the only alternative, and that most definitely leads to destruction.
As one thinks, so it will be. The mind has the real priority over the body when it comes to survival because the mind is Spirit and a Spirit active will always lead to what is best for the Being. Intuition is the Spirit of ones Soul and always seeks what is best for the body that holds it. To believe in that gives one faith in God over Satan, in the Metaphysical over the Physical. Unless, of course, the Spirit one then prefers, is the Spirit of Love and Truth rather than the truly non-spirtual of the opposite. In physicality, light displaces darkness because in comparative “energies”, light is the standard and dark is the lack. In the Spiritual sense, Love is Truth and displaces Fear and its Hatreds because the Spirit is all and the other is nothing. Again, as one thinks so will it be, think positive in terms of highest truth, and the “narrow gate” will open for thee.
IMnsHO and E so far.
