We're All Stars
I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.Revelation 22:16
So many seek the limelight of the world and not the true light of Christ. They think that to be famous and have everyone idolise them, and hang on their every word, makes them a star and more worthy than others. But they couldn't be further from the truth.
And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts2 Peter 1:19
What is the "morning star"? People get confused about this, as Jesus is called the morning star, yet Lucifer was also referred to as the morning star. So let me try and explain it to you.
Your soul and every soul, is nothing more or less than a spark of eternal awareness and divine inspiration, a morning star of endless dawns. When God gives birth to every soul, in the supernatural, He breathes His life into it, which means He fills it with all the knowledge and awareness of His divine nature and characteristics of absolute love and majestic virtuousness, so that all your inspiration will come from absolute love and be expressed with absolute virtue, and you will be a perfect gentleman or gentlewoman of His true love, a true, saintly character.
All we are in eternity, is the spark of eternal awareness and divine inspiration, and beyond that, what we are, comes from what inspires (leads) us and how we express ourselves. Are you a true, saintly character, in the likeness of Christ?
Chances are you're not. That's because, from the moment we're born into the flesh, we are subject to it's instinctual nature and characteristics of pride, vanity, selfish ambition, lust, desire for creature comforts and fear for survival, and most know no other way, than to be led by their sinful, instinctual nature.
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.Proverbs 14:12
They are led by their instincts, particularly the survival instinct, that from its fears, is really only living for death (let the reader understand).
That's why Jesus is the light of the world, the morning star for all those who have "lost their spark", those lost souls who have lost sight of the truth, the way and the life (the true way of life), that God planted in their soul, their heart of hearts, before they were even born.
This world is a wilderness, of many different ways of living, because so many souls are "lost in the dark" and are not living for love (God), and their inspiration and expression does not come from His divine nature and characteristics of absolute, true love, but from the instinctual nature of their flesh, which is sinful in all it's ways.
There is a true way of life, that we're all meant to be living, that leads to the ideal civilisation, in which everyone is truly civil and behaves like perfect gentlemen and gentlewomen, who's every thought, word and deed is governed and dictated by absolute love.
Heaven is not the destination, but the blueprint of the ideal civilisation that God wants us to "bring to life" and "live out". To bring His eternal presence, realm and reality of absolute love and virtuousness to light and make it a living reality and the only way of life.
But you can't do it on your own, it takes at least two to tango and make love flow, and love (God) needs to flow, for that's His nature.
For where two or three are gathered together in My name (presence), I am there in the midst of them.Matthew 18:20
And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations - 'He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter's vessels' - as I also have received from My Father; and I will give him the morning star.Revelation 2:26-28
Absolute, true love conquers all and when you have truly overcome your sinful, instinctual nature and every little spot of its characteristic pride, vanity, selfish ambition, lust, desire for creature comforts and fear for survival, along with every slightest blemish of worldly cares, concerns, desires, hopes and dreams, in short, everything that is not of God, His presence will come upon you in absolute, supernatural power and glory, in the form of the Holy Ghost, and His love will flow through you, like a mighty, rushing river, through every fibre of your being, with such unrelenting, unrestrained and unadulterated power, passion and purpose, that it flows through every pore of your body and makes you a fountain of eternal life, love and youth, and the characteristics of His true love's absolute virtuousness, transforms every aspect of your character, in the blink of an eye and makes you feel like a mighty, noble, dignified, gracious king, beyond anything you can possibly imagine and envelops you in such absolute holiness, peacefulness, gracefulness and graciousness, that it is absolute, pure, heavenly bliss, and I'm not saying that because the Bible told me so, but from my own experience, in real life.
For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.Psalm 36:9
I don't know about you, but Jesus has led (inspired) me to be inspired by and live for the Great Omniscient Deity (GOD) of Absolute Love, with all my heart, mind, body and soul (absolutely), according to His true love's absolute holiness, peacefulness, gracefulness and graciousness, with absolute equanimity, humility and cooperativeness (brotherly love), without the slightest care in the world and like a little child-at-heart, though far from childish, and a very merry man of the Lord am I.
Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted (changed) and become as little children, you will BY NO MEANS enter the kingdom of heaven.Matthew 18:3
Let those who have the ears to hear and eyes to see, get the picture...gt;
Virtue of the Week
Confidence is having faith and trusting that you have what it takes to handle whatever happens. You are sure of yourself and enjoy trying new things, without letting doubts or fears hold you back. When you have confidence in others, you put your trust in them and know you can rely on them.
Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.Hebrews 10:35
