EXORCISING DIABOLICAL IDEOLOGY

EXORCISING DIABOLICAL IDEOLOGY

 Ideology: a system designed from its inception to operate unencumbered by truth

 

I am Designed for Spiritual not Ideological Assimilation…

Peace is the first harmonic of divine affection, where after

Spiritual inference tempers Natural inclination

Culture marinates and hormones gestate emotions, where after

Ideology impounds all that resist its point of reference

 

I am Calibrated by Truth and Light not malignant Ideology…

Wishful Expediency is an inferior stimulus, whereas

Divine Ordination bolsters inspiration patience …

Purpose-free goals are vulnerable to septic disruption, whereas

Vision-sanctioned objectives repudiate nefarious interference

 

I am both Temporal and Eternal, a duality incompatible with Ideology…

Joy is sustained by direct linkage with the realm where

Animated interests and aspirations transpire, whereas

Feelings are but the echoes of synaptic petitions, where

Power, passion, and possessions – predominate

 

I am Destined for Glory that Ideology is designed to divert…

The Provisions of Life are the progeny of temporal aggregation, whereas

The Meaning of Life can only be gleaned and formed by eternal agency…

The Accouterments of Life are attained by preparation and diligence, whereas

The Substance of Life can only be consecrated by trials, faith, and obedience

 

I am Solely Accountable for My Ideology actuated Choices…

Free will is the gift of divine authority to compel Choice to

Align with sovereign purpose and intent, where after

Spiritual discernment preempts the incubation of

Ideology induced deception, delusion, division, and disaster

 

The Delusion of All-Knowingness: From the Garden to the Tower to the Cloud

THE DELUSION OF ALL KNOWINGNESS: FROM THE GARDEN TO THE TOWER TO THE CLOUD

You’ll be just like God, knowing everything, ranging all the way from good to evil.”…Gen.3: 5

With the Internet, there is no longer an excuse for not knowing… B. Krzanich, CEO Intel

The Garden: All Knowingness and the delusion of Self-Providence

It was the best of times. The accounting provided by the Jewish Torah and Christian Bible indicates that long before such a formal construct as history had been codified, Sapiens (triune-man) had brought their unique giftedness fully to bear. Having been granted dominion over the material world, their souls were constrained only by the boundaries of their uniquely animated reason, imagination, interests, and creator-ability.

It was the worst of times. In the Garden, rather than a quest for new dimensions of Creator sanctioned dominion, sapiens desire for Creator like transcendence exposed their vulnerability to treachery. The father of deception counseled that All-Knowingness was but one bite away. Sapiens bite at All-Knowingness proved both catastrophic and generationally contagious, genetically encoding desire for creatoresque Self-Providence.

The Tower: All Knowingness and the delusion of Self-Sufficiency

It was the best of times. Sapiens, ensconced in a flood-free enclave, sought a symbol to undergird their resistance to divine direction to disperse. The Tower project symbolized permanence, possibly arresting the neurosis induced by the continuing phenomena of rain; the rainbow contract offered little consolation. The Tower provided scant strategic advantage – e.g. reconnaissance of storm clouds on the distant horizon; nor did it impart tactical efficacy – e.g. training to develop critical skills that might serve them well in the future. The Tower was a monument to the first Sapiens inspired permanent city-state.

It was the worst of times. Some aspirations inspire the onset of opiate-like addiction – which disengages spiritually gestated moral authority and imperils social and personal accountability. Sapiens, no less vulnerable to spiritual deception than ages earlier, determined they’d restore their divinely diminished creator-ability through enhanced collaboration. The Tower actually evidenced a new genetic mutation of an old sapiens weakness with contagion potential: Self-Sufficiency born of counterfeit All-Knowingness.

The Cloud: All Knowingness and the delusion of Self-Supremacy

It was the best of times. The sages of Melbourne, Palo Alto, Cern, Beijing, Tel Aviv, et al, synchronized their breathing as the technology mother ship arrived and breached the zone where virtual-digital-knowledge resides. This zone is the by-product of a Sapiens induced digital big bang, which formed a network-centric-ecosystem comprised of many interoperable jurisdictions, e.g. computing, communications, storage, big data, analytics, and applications. This distant digital relative of the analog Tower is called the Cloud.

Suddenly complexity became fast, free, easy… and invisible…T. L. Friedman1

The Cloud is delivering unprecedented benefit; it has brought huge global value directly to the desktop and smartphone, and similarly enabled individuals to broadly touch the outside world – e.g. this blog. Few products, services, relationships, or destinations, are beyond its reach. Many presumptively declare the Cloud as wise, declaring it the sovereign authority of who and when. Many believe that the emergence of quantum computers and artificial intelligence will enable the Cloud to better “amplify the power of machines, the power of one, the power of many, and the power of flows1“, advancing sapiens beyond Self-Providence and Self-Sufficiency, to the portal of Self-Supremacy.

It was the worst of times. The Cloud alone adjudicates digitally articulated policy in its own interest, e.g. elevating All-Knowingness over Personal-Privacy. Destitute of social or psychological discernment, the Cloud is wholly incapable of distinguishing those of noble intent from those of nefarious intent: governments in the name of national security and criminals for personal gain, competitors for strategic advantage and businesses for commercial leverage, and terrorist for political conquest and rebels for thrills. The Cloud enables little more than nominal attributes of privacy, by way of anonymous trusted-third-parties, proxies, and vulnerable security technology, of it’s choosing. It also offers the opportunity to surrender to Big Data and Analytics agency simply by clicking “I Agree”.

The Cloud is considered to be rapidly evolving from a kluge-of-capabilities to cogent-entity status; many believe it exhibits pseudo-sentient analytic proficiency. Nevertheless, the Cloud remains highly vulnerable to nefarious human agency, which uses it to alter past and present accounts to form a new you of their choosing, e.g. profiling. Often the Cloud is positioned where principles, not binary data, ought to moderate. The Cloud now undergirds political party hostilities by furnishing weapons grade accusations and innuendo; its social network agency has abated the tactile connectedness critical to maturation of inter-personal skills. The Cloud has no master, yet it remains connected to an evergreen supply of covert and clandestine information-nutrients. Laws, standards, and threats are powerless to thwart or restrain Cloud-sourced virtual-synthetic-facts.

Disaster or Doxology:

The view from above the Cloud: While deception dons coats of many colors, pride is the color it uses to subvert well-being and foment catastrophe. All-Knowingness was the shade of pride donned by deception in the Garden and Tower, and now the Cloud. In the Garden, deception championed Self-Providence; shame and eviction are what followed. In the Tower, deception held out the illusion of Self-Sufficiency; thereafter, diminished collaborative facility was necessary to thwart a new global contagion.

The Cloud – envisioned as master-servant of sapiens quest for All-Knowingness enabled Self-Providence and Self-Sufficiency – has been besieged by powerful and unrelenting cyber espionage, subversion, interloping, piracy, mass surveillance, and profiling. As in the Garden and Tower, the Cloud opines to discordant spiritual revelation and displaced moral integrity. While direct personal control of privacy and security would substantially thwart such Cloud misadventure, true resolution requires the Words of the Creator to reside in the Hearts of Sapiens – not acts of Congress, Courts, Corporations, or Churches.

The Consequences of Fraudulent Transfer of Authority

THE CONSEQUENCES OF FRAUDULENT TRANSFER OF AUTHORITY

The Contemporary Church as Ahab and the State as its Jezebel

For many, the relationship between Ahab and Jezebel elucidates a drama wherein a vulnerable Ahab is victimized by the beguiling femininity of his lover, Jezebel. Neither presumption is true; they are co-dependent conspirators who harbor nefarious intent. Predisposed to fraudulent posturing, Ahab evinces dispassionate jurisdiction, whereas Jezebel predisposed to irrepressible prerogative savors fraudulent jurisdiction. They are catalytic accomplices, whose fraudulent-transfer-of-authority is devoid of moral fidelity.

DNA – a double-helix structure that contains unique genetic instructions present in every cell of the body – arises from the bonding of complimentary molecular agents. Ahab-Jezebel Syndrome – a double-helix psychosis that induces fraudulent-transfer-of-authority – arises from complimentary disposition (immorality) and spiritual mutation (deception), which portends disaster for Social, Sacred, and Secular institutions.

Like a low-grade fever that precedes the onset of debilitating infection, Ahab-Jezebel- Syndrome first entreats collaboration (fever) and then acts to impose subordination (infection). Ahab-Churches unceremoniously surrender their jurisdiction to the dominion of Jezebel-States (government, business, media, academia), who greet fraudulent-transfer-of-authority with both a sense of rightful expectancy and finality.

Induced by the spirit of immorality and deception to dispossess authority, the contemporary church has abdicated its responsibility for moral oversight of: politics, culture, education, economics, and sexuality. Addicted to wanting-what-it-wants, Jezebel-States alone fill the vacuums; they act aggressively to institutionalize these windfalls of authority, which enable them to define success, failure, and spirituality as they so choose. All except staged-contention is vilified as barbarism and social sacrilege.

Repudiating the sovereignty of the source, fraudulent transfers of authority between Church and State are represented as – occasions were enlightened lovers experience beneficial and enduring cohabitation. These lovers trust the cultural and political devices they employ will obfuscate the immorality and deception that inspires their union.

While the State has gained jurisdiction as sole moral arbiter of its own decisions and behavior, the Church has gained but trinkets: lumps of coal in their capital stockings and photo-ops that only impersonate power sharing. With jurisdiction of both capital and moral authority, States seek final consolidation – radical transformation of the Family.

If the only One with the power to sanction these institutions is yet cogent and sovereign, will there be rectification? Jezebel-States are actually the boots who march to the beat of Ahab-Church dysfunction. Having bartered away actual for titular authority, garnering little more than a muzzle and blindfold – the Church had better batten its hatches.

So she [Jezebel] wrote letters in Ahab’s name, placed his seal on them, and sent them

to the elders and nobles – 1 Kings 21: 8

Disrupting Deception: Natural vs. Transcendental Progression

Disrupting Deception: Natural vs. Transcendental Progression

 The great counterfeiter adapts deception to every time and culture – Billy Graham

The great counterfeiter’s kryptonite is division through slander – James MacDonald

There’s no disaster that can’t become a blessing or blessing a disaster – J. L. Seagull

  Sapiens: Spirit – Soul – Sentience

Genesis and genetics set forth the proposition that evolution and devolution derive from seeds; sapiens experiences of consequence involve one or both. However, moral momentum first gestates in the spirit, promulgates influence of the soul, and finally transforms conscious perspective and behavior. Both the nefarious and noble acts of men are: spirit-groomed, soul-sanctioned, and sentience-enabled. While we are infused by what we eat, we are only imbued by what we think and that with which we agree.

It is not unreasonable to be disconcerted by our failure to foresee the inconceivable in others. However, transcendental-progression – e.g. spirit-soul-sentience – telegraphs our personal inclination for the implausible. We are alerted by a sense of transformation as the seeds of potential impound our cognitive and kinetic energy to actualize their noble and nefarious destiny. Whether moon landings, mass shootings, cancer cures, financial fraud, good samaritism, terrorism, philanthropy, or maleficence under cloak of authority, each evidences transcendental-progression; timing remains the only unknown.

Deception: Unfaithful Allegiance – Fictitious Sufficiency

Deception exploits our predilection for psychological assessment of nefarious and noble acts. Whereas many believe the confluence of genetic and environmental triggers codify subconscious intent, deception requires a more amenable agency than transcendental- progression. Deception fully embraces natural-progression – e.g. genes-environment-sentience – that supports the illusion that the implausible and inconceivable can be predicted and controlled. Billions are being expended in search of a behavioral-genome having the potential to avert the next Boston, Paris, Brussels, Orlando, and Nice.

Despite a preponderance of experience and evidence to the contrary, many subscribe to the notion that natural-progression informed politics, economics, and social science can re-seed human inclination. Yet, human history confirms that privilege and disadvantage, intelligence and ineptness, affluence and poverty, aggression and complaisance, refinement and inelegance, cohabit both ascendant and subservient potential. Deception dismisses such powerful evidentiary continuity – supplanting light and accord with darkness and friction to wrest control of the human conscious.

Division: Disingenuous Relationship – encapsulated by – Fraudulent Purpose

Division is the first born of deception. It squanders no opportunity to divide: e.g. Jew and Gentile, Shia and Sunni, Hutu and Tutsi, Turk and Armenian, North and South, East and West, Red and Blue, Black and White, and Top from Bottom. Deception disavows coalescence in order to first kindle and then enrage division, no matter urgent protests and unassailable consensus. Division is a far more verbal than tactile proceeding; it burns from both ends of the tongue to inculcate destructive mischaracterizations.

Division is the mother’s milk of politics. It perpetrates a war of attrition predicated on salvos of improbable promises from principle-deficient political operatives. Their goals are: to obtain and retain constituent support while distracting attention from off-putting ideology, and to accumulate unmerited personal resources and power. Politics confirm that division is highly addictive for both operatives and constituents. No political constituency on the planet has managed to alleviate division-addiction for any sustained period. Division-addiction reveals politics as a two-division two-team blood sport – hustlers and the hustled versus hustlers and the hustled.

Division is the loyal mistress of economics. Artificial economic-division (American style) partitions the absolute value of wealth into multiple groups, defining those in the bottom groups as the poor, and those in the top groups as the rich. Such division is much more likely to deceive than to inform; e.g. the value of entitlements (food stamps, housing allowances, healthcare, childcare, et al) are excluded when assessing the quality of life available to those consigned to a bottom group – wherein many live on par or better than the global middle class. Division disparages economic differences without accounting for personal sacrifice, preference, or giftedness, and commutes personal prerogatives into human rights as it sees fit – absent probity or equity.

Supply-and-demand has long served as a reliable macro-economic barometer of stock market volatility and risk. Market apparatchiks and their math-quants have learned to exploit stock market volatility to abate proportionate investment risks. The staggering difference in presumptive wealth between those defined as rich and poor derives largely from the return on investment afforded these apparatchiks and their clients. Economic division is deception-infected; the shroud of inequity is cast over many more than the one tenth of one percent who actually garner such risk-redacted gains. However, economic-division is also self-seeking; the unaffected offer little sympathy when wild swings in market confidence sack the values of apparatchik stock portfolios.

Division maintains social science on retainer and first call. Principled social science seeks to better understand cause and effect, and in turn how to induce the beneficial and control the implausible. Deception-infected-division restricts the basis of social science to natural-progression, opening many paths by which to foment and justify group isolation and disruption. Social-division nourished by deception has achieved pandemic scale; no people, nation, or kingdom has evaded its pernicious disfigurement.

Disaster: People – Nations – Kingdoms

People

Morning: Of the eleven million people involuntarily extracted from West Africa, only two percent would be settled in the south of North America; many would endure well-documented atrocities at the hands of brutal masters. Today, direct descendants of this racial caste: comprise the 16th largest economy in the world; can boast of noted leaders of government and transnational business enterprise to numerous to mention; have achieved a level of formal education rivaled only by the majority national community; and are the most literate of all diasporas of color – so much from so little and so few.

Evening: Inexplicably, over the past thirty years a small cadre of young men from this remarkable community are irrefutably responsible for more than fifty percent of all domestic homicides. In 2015 this cadre would murder 6,000 members of their own community. Concurrently, many young members from this community would exercise their constitutional right to protest the use of lethal force by police in the deaths of 36 unarmed community members – never mind that at this rate of engagement Police would require over forty years to murder on par with this small cadre in one year alone.

Disaster: Regardless of the facts, deception enables politicians, journalist, and self-anointed spokespersons to dispossess this remarkable community of the pride, reputation, and self-confidence it’s accomplishments warrant. Further, agents-of-deception have cast this largely progressive and law abiding community as intractably dependent (entitlement addicted) and morally despicable (promiscuous and profane). This community largely rejects this deceptive script, yet some choose instead to audition.

Nations

Morning: Coalition, a first cousin of collaboration, has always been an essential element of human advancement. There are a number of well recognized coalitions – e.g. the North American Free Trade Act (NAFTA), the European Union (EU), the Asia Pacific Trade Agreement (APTA) – which ostensibly form larger trading blocks that are more competitive across global markets. There are also less formal constructs, e.g. alliances.

Evening: Generally where the more competitive, e.g. Maquiladoras, displace the lesser competitive, e.g. Trade Union – the impact is first and foremost personal. Forecasts of consumer savings provide coalitions political cover, yet many companies retain the lion’s share of increases in margin – as Boards of Directors expect, and Markets demand.

Disaster: No matter that efficiencies align and value accrues to all parties, deception lurks. China is exchanging infrastructure development in Africa for long-term access to natural resources. The EU constitution abetted cultural-division and ultimately defection (Brexit). NAFTA has pushed Americans both higher and lower in the middle class stack.

Kingdoms

Morning: While nations are but intellectual and geographic people progressions, kingdoms abide a different realm than do people or nations. Kingdoms operate only in accordance with transcendental (spirit-soul-conscious) not natural (genes-environment-conscious) progression. Science has confirmed that genes bare specific environmentally influenced instructions after which they enable specific biological construction – whereas spirit and soul cannot be confirmed or denied by scientific processes. Many of the intellectual elite insists that these progressions are complimentary like the double helix structure of DNA. Nevertheless after discovery of gene adaptation (regulate, replicate, and recombine), cogent consideration of spirit and soul was consummately disbarred.

Evening: Observation and reasoned exegesis pushed such epiphanies as the renaissance, reformation, scientific revolution, and enlightenment to challenge and better inform the next sure thing. No sequence of epiphanies has confirmed the capacity of natural progression to account for deception. No outcome employing repeatable scientific processes has demonstrated genetic adaption countervailing deception. It is rational to conclude that deception is the progeny of transcendental not natural progression.

Disaster: Judgment that rest upon the tenants of an immaterial progression portends catastrophe. Transcendental-progression is the only means by which that originating in spirit can be cross-examined, where after the soul adjudicates choice (not amino acids, proteins, and enzymes); all inspiration – light and darkness – arising in this realm have eternal consequences. While the influence of natural progression on psychological response is well established, it by no means accounts for the willing participation of hundreds of thousands in deception inspired misadventure. Yet many believe a genomic protocol capable of averting social (see below) catastrophes will be discovered:

                          45M killed by Moa Zedong                                            12M killed by Adolf Hitler

                          7M killed by Josef Stalin                                                5M killed by Hedeki Tojo

                          4.0M Syrians displaced (2011-2015)                           2.6M Afghani displaced (1979-2015)

                          2.4M Rwandans displaced (1994)                                1.4M Iraqis displaced (1991)

                          2,866 Islamic attacks (2015)                                         27,627 Islamic murders (2015)

                          11,774 worldwide attacks (2015)                                   28,328 worldwide deaths (2015)

                          Global Financial Collapse of 2008                               Dotcom Bubble of 2000

                          Junk Bond Crash of 1989                                               Stock Market Crash of 1987

A Time to Choose

Natural-progression can only exacerbate not disengage deception; darkness begets darkness. Only Transcendental-progression can ameliorate deception and its eternal consequences; light begets light. Each of us is required to choose and embrace but one of these points of reference.

Burning Man – Bling versus Light

BURNING MAN – BLING VERSUS LIGHT

Babylon, Mesopotamia – Black Rock Desert, Nevada

Babylon: 9“May the king live forever! 10 Your Majesty has issued a decree that everyone who hears the sound of …all kinds of music must fall down and worship the image of gold, 11 and that whoever does not fall down and worship will be thrown into a blazing furnace.

Black Rock: Hey man didn’t you get the Flash Mob tweet? Everybody is on high alert listening for the beats – the Business Ballers, the Pay-Pal Politicians, the App Store Pastors, the LinkedIn Legends, the Facebook Phenoms, the YouTube Dudes, and the Instagram Babes. WhatsApp with you, even your wife is sleeping in her Bluetooth Ear Buds.

Babylon: 12 But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon – Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego – who pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Black Rock: Dude, they got you and your posse on blast. Old boy told the Head Baller that even though your game is tight: you refuse to raise your hands in the air because you actually don’t care or place your hat over your morals as he dictates; you refuse to imbibe or vote as the king wishes to remain bling-tight. They say you holding out for a distant lover.

Babylon: 13 Furious with rage, the King summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king, 14 and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up? 15 Now when you hear the sound of …all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you…?

Black Rock: The: democrats, republicans, and independents; red and blue state people; the left, right, rich, and poor; the liberals, conservatives, and libertarians; the CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News anchors – are furious. They’re demanding that you confess your allegiance to the orthodoxy of this age before the next explicit mix track finishes, or your swagger and bling will be vaporized by scurrilous Internet innuendo and a media beat down.

Babylon: 16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him… we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand.

Black Rock: Ok Big Dogs, we get it; you believe only what you can see. Your fresh castle, phat chariot, and gangsta posse, have you thinking you actually roll like that. We hear you’ve already sold out our “Burning Man” performance. However, our Master has a season pass for every show in the universe, when He comes you’ll realize He doesn’t need a seat.

Babylon: 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Black Rock: By the way, even if our Master should decide to skip “Burning Man” this year, your band still has no swagger, and we don’t do Beats.

A View from the Confluence of Faith and Science

A VIEW FROM THE CONFLUENCE OF FAITH AND SCIENCE

Much appreciation to: Yuval Harari and Jared Diamond, Gerald Schroeder and Hue Ross, and Moses

Evolution by natural selection is one of the best-substantiated theories in science…Evolutionists

Only one text describes what scientists have since discovered – the Big Bang…Cosmologists

Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities… have been clearly seen …Creationist

Faith

Conscience (ethos), Prophecy (revelation), Reason (logic), and Acts (demonstration)

No matter the particular path(s) – only Faith begets Belief

Scientific discoveries continue to illuminate to controversial Beliefs

Question: Is it incongruous to re-examine faith-allied claims in the light of Science?

 Genesis

 Creationists provided Scientific guidance before Theological arguments

No matter the genesis of inspiration, whether – vision incited by revelation, reason conferred by science, or the natural entangled with the transcendental – faith must be cultivated to engender affection, and engaged to actualize potential. This precept is fundamental; everything that exist and everything we are derives from this TripleLux. It is expressed poignantly by the familiar affirmation – faith without works is dead; said in context – inspiration begets cultivation, which begets actualization, e.g. Creation.

Creation exudes Cultivation (synchronization) and Actualization (resiliency)

Question: What are some plausible explanations as to the Inspiration for creation?

Science

Science provides systematic verification of facts, truths, and inference regarding faith

Observation of cultivation and examination of actualization have increased scientific knowledge regarding cosmology, ecology, and anthropology exponentially; inspiration was considered too nebulous for scientific analysis. Given the interdependency of these three high science disciplines, it is reasonable to conclude they share the same modus of inspiration. Prior to the confluence of these high science disciplines, creationism – presented in just thirty-one succinct verses – provided the only complimentary account. This scientific tsunami has given inescapable gravity to but one term, Creator.

Scientific Cosmology coincides with Creationism

Scientific Ecology coincides with Creationism

Question: Can Anthropology coincide with Cosmology/Ecology, but not Creationism?

Cosmology

 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…Gen. 1: 1-5

Cosmology is the scientific discipline that investigates the origin and development of the universe. While theories abound, the one exhibiting credible correlation between faith and reason is referred to as the Big Bang. Cosmologists describe the universe as the production of an intelligent beginner and a first cause event – from great nothingness.

The COBE and Hubble satellites enabled scientists to determine the precise tempo at which the universe transpired. In the only precise accounting of record, the six periods – evening (chaos – ereb) to morning (order – boqer) – to include a final period of reference (one earth orbit) – ranged from millions to but thousands of reference-based years. Corroboration and illumination of this written account by credible mathematical and cosmogenesis analysis gives rise to but one description – Creator.

Only one Beginning and Ending coincide with the Creation of the Universe

Question: If Creation of the Universe was the Beginning, what was the End objective?

Ecology

God called the vault “sky” (3.8B yrs.) – God called the dry ground “land”… the gathered waters he called “seas”… Let the land produce vegetation (2.0B yrs.) – Let there be lights in the sky to separate the day from the night (1.0B yrs.) – Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky (0.5B yrs.) – Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds (0.2B yrs.) Gen. 1: 6-25

Ecology is the scientific discipline that investigates organisms, physical surroundings, and the consequences of their interaction. Analysis of geophysical and fossil data has convinced scientists that the cooling of the earth and the appearance of water and sunshine proffered conditions conducive to the consequential-evolution of biological organisms. No matter debates regarding consequential-resiliency (e.g. global warming), the earth, atmosphere, plants, and animals form a highly complex relational-ecosystem, which boundaries must be understood and respected.

Elementary science, observation, and intuition, embolden the presumption that within the relational-ecosystem the simple gives rise to the more complex. However, molecular biologists have discovered single cell plants with hundreds of times the genetic information per cell as mammals, but lack a plausible explanation as to the origin of either genome. No matter the possible scientific incongruity, the quest for planets evidencing hydro potentiality advances. Only one explanation coincides with earth’s genetically rich relational-ecosystem and congruent cosmological periodicityCreator.

The Biblical account attests that biological organisms bringing forth after their own kind

Question: Does 2B yrs. of composition within the boundaries of kind refute Evolution?

Anthropology

Anthropology is the scientific discipline that studies human beings and cultures. It is perhaps the most intriguing of all human interests, besides critical life saving therapies and protocols. Who are we (relationship), why are we here (purpose), and where did we come from (origin)? While relationship and purpose harbor overarching insight, for context and consistency we’ll follow the trail of origin to its intersection with the others.

Sapiens

Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground…Gen. 2: 7

Biologically, modern humans are a part of the Homo genus and Sapiens species, of which there were many other species to include Erectus, Ergaster, and Neanderthal; only Homo sapiens survive. Credible scientific investigations repeatedly confirm the sudden not consequential-evolutionary appearance of Homo sapiens. Evolutionists continue to search for a direct link to other Homo genus, contending that Homo sapiens are mammal class evolutionary organisms, and like plants and other animals, are the progeny of the same relational-ecosystem. Further scientific scrutiny reveals that Homo sapiens genetic code is hugely different from other Homo species.

Unlike other Homo genus, Sapiens are the Creators direct handiwork, not consequential-evolution

Question: Why is it critical that Evolutionists directly link all Homo geniuses?

Spirit

Then the Lord…breathed into his nostrils the breath of life …Gen. 2: 7

Despite smaller stature and smaller brains than Neanderthals, Sapiens evidence incomparably advanced cognition and imagination, exhibited by no other Homo genus. The agility biologist, psychologist, and social scientists describe as super-intelligence, derives from impartation of prescient-connection unbounded by time, space, or matter.

The Creator breathed (imparted) His own eternal life spirit into Homo sapiens, not oxygen

Soul

 …and the man became a living being…Gen. 2: 7

Homo sapiens uniqueness – the ability to see what did not exist as though it were, to modify ecosystem relationships to their own advantage, to achieve sufficient caloric intake in a fraction of the time and effort required by other Homo species, and to travel the breath of the planet – derives not from consequential-evolution, but impartation of spirit and then animation of reason, interests, and creativity, this screams Creator.

Th Creator’s life spirit transformed the corporeal and synaptic into the conscious and sentient

Question: What does the gift of Soul and Spirit suggest about Relationship and Purpose?

 

Slide1

Stillness Derives from Being

Stillness Derives from Being

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

Learning to discern the difference between a call to a state of being and a call to a state of action is one of the most challenging of insights to attain. Kinetic activity is appealing to the will and self-affirming to the intellect, whereas being speaks to conditioning of the will and subordination of intellectual inclination. While the soul is the capital of both states, the question isn’t which state befits the season or circumstances, but which spirit, truth or deception, preserves jurisdiction.

Spiritual jurisdiction, not juxtaposition of states, determines the veracity of insight discerned by the soul. The beautiful poetic discourse of the 23rd Psalms engages kinetic acts, outcomes, and prophecies to usher the hearer foremost into a state of being:

The Lord is my Shepherd

Silence does not denote His absence

I shall not want

I sense provision before I possess it

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures

He confiscates my schedule in order to nurture my soul

He leadeth me beside the still waters

He escorts me to hushed and tranquil spiritual zones

He restoreth my soul

He first silences my contemplation and then my circumstances

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake

My uncertainty gains clarity, one obedient act at a time

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

My path is determined by His purpose, not prevailing conditions

I will fear no evil, for thou art with me

My companion is a champion fear buster and evil basher

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me

His governance imparts to me a highly personalized peace

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies

There are things that are His alone to bring to pass

Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over

He first chose me, now my joy inspires riots of envy

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life

He suffers my relentless doing, while providentially inspiring me to be

I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever…

He’s made it clear where I’m to go from here, and being is my passport

A Laughable Strategy: Part 3 of 3

A LAUGHABLE STRATEGY : 3 of 3

1 Samuel 2:28, Luke 15:11-32, 1 Corinthians 13:13

The bouncing baby boy was a dream come true for the parents whose other child had been called to heaven from the womb rather than the world. Soon they discovered the beauty of life in Christ and dedicated their most prized possession to Him. As sanctified in private as they were in public, the parents nurtured the one given over to God, more as a ward of heaven than a son. The Father taught him the power of kindness and hard work to vanquish selfishness and dependence, while the Mother instilled in him confidence and aspiration, unrestrained by voices of apprehension or acquiescence.

While he’d always believed in the deity of Christ, a predilection with religion failed to connect with the call of God he felt so deeply in his heart. However, religion would prove a perfect soul mate for intellectual, professional, social, and cultural enlightenment. This new hybrid-god of enlightenment received all the praise for his many, varied, and significant accomplishments. The son given to and gifted by God preferred the prodigal lifestyle of works to the laughable strategy of faith.

In time the opiate of enlightenment proffered by the hybrid-god, loss its potency to silence the call of God pulsating in his heart. The prodigal was compelled to search out just enough religion to restore the opiate of his addiction to sufficient potency. While he was looking for religion but loitering in the spiritual, the Holy Spirit illuminated the Word, revealing the emptiness of enlightenment and futility of life apart from Christ. Though the son given over to God had in fact reconciled with the true inspiration of his calling, his mind held fast to a preference for objective initiative over the laughable strategy of hope.

God reprised the call on his life with marked clarity by the Word, divine inspiration, and prophetic counsel. He embraced past successes as building blocks of the prophetic vision God had spoken into his spirit. However, the more his love of the Lord grew, the more pronounced seemed the set backs he experienced. While the disintegration was broad, personal, persistent, and painful, the son given over to God experienced joy and peace that surpassed his understanding. Notwithstanding, he envisioned and longed more for prophetic performance than the laughable strategy of love.

By grace and growth his gifts kicked their enlightenment addiction, aligning instead with faith. His initiatives were liberated from blind objectivity, qualified instead by hope. His expectations now found focus beyond circumstances; his heart given over to the love of God alone. Clarity! His ministry and profession were divinely conjoined. The Call he felt so deeply would require complete surrender of all the currency of life: emotions, possessions, potential, and passions. The Spirit of God illuminated a course of action, where the most comprehensive was also the most improbable. The call came quickly, confirming that the Word yet held the power to part seas of impossibility.

Joshua 1:1 – 6:27

Though the tent nation from the other side of the sea languished in the wilderness, they routinely surmounted challenges far exceeding their proficiency. Year after year they evidenced no commitment to national strategic initiative or infrastructure development. The efficacy of their theocratic governance could be objectively debated as they repeatedly uprooted the entire citizenry according to the random movements of a single perennial cloud, a laughable strategy.

Eventually their neighbors dismissed them as a menagerie of nomadic savants going nowhere. The One who’d secured their emancipation, enrolled them as student-ministers in the most advanced University of Spiritual Cultivation since the cessation of studies at the Garden of Eden and before the coming of Pentecost. Comprised of twelve different schools, this university of higher calling taught only three courses: reverence, faith, and obedience. Some forty years later the first and only graduating class celebrated its baccalaureate, dressed in war regalia rather than caps and gowns, on the shores of Jordanian destiny.

As it was in the beginning, destiny again lay on the other side of an aqueous barrier of impossibility. Led by representatives from the School of Levitical Studies, they proceed resolutely without so much as a single floatation device, a laughable strategy. After an inexplicable splash-free crossing, they constructed a profound but simple monument to remind their progeny of the faithfulness of the One who’d called them unto Himself.

It yet appeared that breaking into destiny would be every bit as challenging as breaking out had been forty years earlier. Though shielded by a second purportedly impenetrable fortification, the adroitness with which they vanquished the first gave rise to grave concern throughout the region. Ensconced in a defensive but determined posture, the experienced adversary relocated critical resources and non-combatants to the rear. However, their reconnaissance suggested these would be invaders were more adept at revelry and marching than fighting.

Day after day the tent nation from the other side of the other side, marched around the fortification separating them from destiny, blowing horns, yet another laughable strategy. Eventually the alert-status within the protectorate was lowered and non-combatants were allowed to lampoon the spectacle first hand. However, on the seventh day, the Word called for the music to be remixed and instructed that the marching be extended. These changes coincided with the complete collapse of the heretofore-impenetrable fortification. Thereafter, resistance was futile.

Resisting the Word is far to daunting a task for even the richest or most powerful, yet today self-anointed sovereigns remain dedicated to this pursuit. Standing on the Word requires exercise of but a portion of the faith each has been gifted; yet today few are willing to march to the beat of Word music.

Exodus 6:1 – 14:31

They had been considered a treasure because of their giftedness, and then a national security threat because of their perceived potential. Their fate appeared to rest upon the negotiating skills of a reluctant Ambassador sent from somewhere in the desert by a Sovereign whose press kit described him simply as “I Am that I Am”. The Ambassador’s curriculum vitae included forty years of governance studies, forty years of wilderness survival studies, and would soon be updated to include a forty-year residency in both.

The Ambassador was directed to command the most powerful Monarch of the province to immediately surrender his most valuable organic assets, allowing them to fulfill their destiny as the chosen servant-ministers of another King and Kingdom. Intelligence reports confirmed that the Ambassadors’ home Kingdom held no military, geographical, or economic resources of consequence. Theirs was a laughable strategy, given the prowess and comprehensiveness of the Monarchs capabilities. No point-spread was posted for this “Rumble on the Nile”.

With contempt, the Monarch implored the Ambassador to either throw in the towel or let the games begin. Convention dictated that the Ambassador return home, pending a military buildup. However, the Ambassador resorted to yet another seemingly laughable strategy. He simply repeated his Kings Words to the Monarch and then extended his shepherd’s staff. From the Word and such a seemingly pedestrian gesture came nine cataclysmic judgments in the form of ecological, biological, meteorological, and cosmological phenomenon. Each judgment was met with defiance and retaliation, rather than capitulation. The Ambassador reticently pondered whether another strategy would be required for Kingdom Power to overcome World Power.

The Ambassador received a new Word from his Sovereign that held fast to the same laughable strategy. So compelling was this Word, the Ambassador directed all would be servant-ministers to first seek a parting gift from their neighbors, and then to book their reservations for the trip by marking the door post of their homes. Unbeknownst to the Monarch, the cost of ignoring the Word was to be far greater than the loss of silver, gold, low cost national palaces, and unfettered personal leisure.

The Word is the most powerful force in the universe; it can never fail. The Kings Word and article of faith in the hand of the Ambassador was powerful enough to provide a red carpet through the sea of impossibility. World Power always laughs first, then dismisses, and finally resists the Word. The Monarchs determined resistance led ultimately to a genealogical holocaust, military annihilation, and economic collapse. So long as the World continues to resist the Word, calamity will remain indelibly imprinted on the human historical experience.
