Wow, just as expected, this has become a very unpopular post. That really is just fine with me, though. I'm not here to win a popularity contest
or collect points. If you don't like what I have to say, that’s fine. If you think the Bible is for ignoramuses, I feel for ya, but still, that's
fine by me. Even if only one person were to read it and actually experience what I'm talking about, it would be more than worth it.
Who Are You?
I bet you think you know who you are. In fact, this is the one question that we could ask anyone, and certainly they would know the answer. That is
your ego, though. Everything that goes into making the self-aware Y-O-U is the ego. It is composed of predisposed genetic tendencies, and
environmental influences. Start all the way before you were born and bring it down to the present time. Your family tree has its roots from culture,
race and possibly a religion. Your parents and family members all have different values, beliefs, ideas, concepts, recreational hobbies; friends,
social networks, educations, and they all influence you. Your upbringing, the country you live in, the state, town, school, church, job, friends,
neighbors, music, art, sports, hobbies, books… The list is endless, and that is just environment, but is this really you?
Absolutely not! None of these things are you! The ego is a depraved outlaw; corrupt and fallen. Disfigured and grossly contorted by sin. (I hope you
believe in sin… ) Sin, is the reason most of us can only be trusted with a measure of Faith. It is only when we commit ego suicide that we can be
truly Born Again, and then and only then will we be able to see who we truly are.
Why, though? Why is it so important that we KNOW who we are? Because KNOWING is magical! KNOWING who you are destroys the fallen ego that controls
behavior and even self awareness. I repeat – Ego controls behavior and awareness- the stream of thought.
Do you see the picture yet? If not, come on down the rabbit hole a little bit farther.
The future, like it or not, is on its way, but what is in store for you in the future? Are you uncertain or afraid? Confused and intimidated? If so,
your ego is too strong. Within the core of a child of God is a powerful desire to BECOME who we really are. Not change. BECOME. It is what you already
are. Does the caterpillar really change, or does it simply become what it is? Does a sperm cell and an egg change into a child or did it become a
child? An apple seed does not change, it becomes a tree. Just as a monkey never changed into a man, neither did a fish change into a bird. Confusing?
That’s because you’re still inside your box. Come on out. It’s okay… really!
You were not evil and then changed into someone good. Your actions may have been evil, but that really isn’t you. That is ego. Your actions do not
define the real you! They only define your ego.
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
The real you is buried very deep within, covered by layers upon layers of ego. Honestly, it is impossible to uncover it yourself, but with some help
from our Awesome God, the lord Jesus Christ, you can. When you see who you really are, it will be the most incredible experience of your life. The
power it will produce will transform reality completely, giving you a clear stream of thought and control over your behavior, but as awesome as that
is, it will give you something that I cannot even tell you about. Not that I am not allowed, but simply because it’s impossible to express.
Just as the butterfly no longer crawls around on the ground bound to the limitations of the earth, but defies gravity by flight, so will you. The ego
has a gravity of its own. It is powerful. Powerful enough to keep people from that meeting in the air, and yes, I’m talking about the rapture.
Still more, so "TO BE CONTINUED"...
