Let’s give each other rest this Christmas in Christ


1 Corinthians 12:31  But desire earnestly the greater gifts, and yet shew I unto you a way of more surpassing excellence.

Healing is not always about addressing symptoms, but the whole spirit of malaise. Sometimes called an ideology. What is pain for Satan is where we live and yet we do not live in flames of hell. What makes sense to Satan is the lie.

Fallen man does not see the world as a product of a mix of former prayers of brethren and the lies of Satan but as a supposed will neutral zone of pleasure seeking not even asking where and why those so called pleasures are here or what they actually are. Many things considered rare or difficult are not at all “the human condition”. They are only an era of a total time environment and even time itself does not exist as men think it does. It is no measure of anything.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13  If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.   And if I have prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.   And if I shall dole out all my goods in food, and if I deliver up my body that I may be burned, but have not love, I profit nothing.  Love has long patience, is kind; love is not emulous of others ; love is not insolent and rash, is not puffed up,  does not behave in an unseemly manner, does not seek what is its own, is not quickly provoked, does not impute evil,  does not rejoice at iniquity but rejoices with the truth,  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails; but whether prophecies, they shall be done away; or tongues, they shall cease; or knowledge, it shall be done away.   For we know in part, and we prophesy in part:   but when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part shall be done away.  When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I reasoned as a child; when I became a man, I had done with what belonged to the child.  For we see now through a dim window obscurely, but then face to face; now I know partially, but then I shall know according as I also have been known.   And now abide faith, hope, love; these three things; and the greater of these is love.

If most people call you a child, pray in Christ that you not want anything for Christmas that money can buy. Give your parents a rest from guessing what the proper button to push on you ought to be to get a smile from money. Only Christ can give you that.

If you are an adult, ask to desire less and only what money cannot buy. Only Christ can give you that.

The ‘economy’ is not a person. It can’t be hurt. It can’t ‘die’. It can’t even be wounded. It is a false metric needed only by people who make a living keeping scarcity uppermost in other peoples minds to control them. A republic is very much the same thing; it is not a ‘thing’ a group can control, even a free people. It is you. You don’t have free will. I.E. No one can steal a republic from you. They can only pretend.

Ask, among whatever God brings to your mind as the only legitimate prayer, and I say this in Christ:

for language skills. If you, as a hobby, with a small percentage of your time, were to start learning three or four languages at once ..it will take some time. But in Christ, not as long as you think. Get the Bible of the languages He gives, learn to pronounce Him in those tongues by reading Him, several chapters a week in private –out loud — and search for free mp3’s and texts  in those languages of a native speaker reading the Bible and the Bible itself. Match the chapters to the mp3’s. That is all done for free.And that before you buy any software. The software on a certain level is very deceived and is a deceiver. The dictionaries and the books can be helpful.

You can’t replace a interested student. Ask God in Christ to keep you interested and for patience; to give you the grace to learn in every environment and on the fly, not just in your favorite chair or surroundings which you may have been taught is a “learning environment”. Ask Him to give you the prayers that you need as you go along and to learn: to keep on learning and to keep having patience and to be interested and have a thirst to learn. Language learning is one of those things that has no pay-off in its initial stages and can seem ..unintelligible itself. But ask also to not be in a particular hurry to monetize your understanding and let God do with it what He will in grace and in wrath as rain on the just and the unjust. And in wrath ..not just grace. No lopsided existence. Be ye perfect.

Ask as well not to be a prisoner of English, per se. Nothing wrong with English of course, but not to have to funnel everything through English in order for it to be ‘legitimate’. I’m personally for laws that mandate English only in the US. But I understand other tongues are just as legitimate and have a certain use beyond human to human comprehension.

Ask to understand these things: you can’t prove you think in English. You can’t prove you dream in English. Non-creating speech is a living creature, not an abstract that is a simple tool. Ask in Christ to not be harmed by what you learn or by what others will try to force on you as learning. Ask to not be distracted nor to be utterly consumed with hunger for it ..you have to live a whole life.

Many people who are not Christians are multi-lingual. They got what they got by climbing over the wall. They did not go in by the door of Christ. That applies to all knowledge. But knowledge is sticky. It is not a question of remembering it but of forgetting it sometimes. When God asks you where you got something, as a Christian the ONLY right reply is “from You.” no matter what that may be. That’s honest, even if it confounding on an emotional level sometimes. Non-Christians may be able at times to learn some things faster and to monetize them faster. Don’t follow them.

This can easily be done in spare time. If you drive a tractor or other heavy machinery and have a radio, you can very easily put in , DVD’s, cd’s, tapes, and mp3’s to help you learn languages and you can make all those recordings yourself with just the standard computer gear of most homes or at the library. There are many jobs that require complete attention. But only a few minutes a day repeated several times helps a LOT. Lunch, breaks, .. Ask to learn at least one thing about each language every day no matter how small.

If you a whore, ask to know longer be a whore. If you a pimp, ask to simply stop. If you are pushing pornography or spam on others, ask to stop. Ask to simply not need money. What is a big deal to you is not a big deal to God. If you are a terrorist or a criminal, ask to stop. If you are an addict ask to stop. All of that is grace. That is not at all “will-power”. Ask to live outside the ideology of your era that is a lie. All of it.

If on January 1 of 2010 very many people thank God in your private prayers for Him having removed from you the lie of human free will and the worship of non-creating speech, the world will be a very different place. Ask to know the things of the so-called free will and why the will is not free. Ask to know what language IS and the distinction between God as Word and all other speech. That’s not something you can do “as a community”. That’s not something for “corporate or covenantal” worship. That’s not the Christmas Musical. That is your private relationship with Jesus Christ.

—————————

Ask to be given the necessary prayers for those whom God will have you pray for and that God pray them through you: beyond what they say they need, beyond what you think they need –beyond your personal ideology and their personal ideology of the hour or era. Do NOT use the spiritual intelligence that goes along with that except in the manner God does through you, whatever that may be.

Let’s all just give each other a rest this Christmas. Read your own Bible and pray the prayers God gives you. That’s really all there is to it.

That way, no matter if you really used to be one, when someone in a Santa suit says “Ho, Ho Ho” you can say with confidence:

“Wrong house

ошиблась домом

البيت الخطأ

(al-bayt al-Khataa’)

falsche Haus

casa equivocada

错误的房子

( cuòwù de / dì fángzi)

गलत घर

( galata ghara )

Ask for God to give you what He knows you need. That is something you cannot pay someone to teach you ‘how-to do’ . That is something far beyond even the pretense that you can do it yourself with any resources you have. That is not something you are supposed to “wait until you get to heaven to do”. Expect merchants and those in their mindset of slavery to the lie of human free will, non-creating speech,  money and numbers and all false metrics to complain and say something like “What is Christmas for if not to give gifts you have to buy?!”.

These things cannot be understood  in a simple paradigm of “saving money” or “spending money”. But it is just as much spiritual warfare on its own level.

1 John 3:2,3  Beloved, now are we children of God, and what we shall be has not yet been manifested; we know that if it is manifested we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.   And every one that has this hope in him purifies himself, even as *he* is pure.

James 1:5-10  But if any one of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all freely and reproaches not, and it shall be given to him:  but let him ask in faith, nothing doubting. For he that doubts is like a wave of the sea driven by the wind and tossed about;  for let not that man think that he shall receive anything from the Lord;   he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.  But let the brother of low degree glory in his elevation,  and the rich in his humiliation, because as the grass’s flower he will pass away.

James 4:2-4  Ye lust and have not: ye kill and are full of envy, and cannot obtain; ye fight and war; ye have not because ye ask not.  Ye ask and receive not, because ye ask evilly, that ye may consume it in your pleasures. Adulteresses, know ye not that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore is minded to be the friend of the world is constituted enemy of God.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
