Okay, I'm hesitant but here goes....
He says there is going to be a huge meteor that will hit the earth with a bunch of smaller ones following it.
He says he thinks something is going to happen on the day of the superbowl... not sure.
He says that God is really an alien. He now believes in God, reads the Bible and prays every day.
There was much more but these are the ones that really stick out in my mind.
An alien? He's probably more than one!
Sometimes I wonder if God isn't the highest expression of his creation via the collective consciousness and unconsciousness of all sentient beings
throughout the universe, but then I think of the plants and animals, and about the fully informed Akashic Field or Zero Point Field which penetrates
the entire spectrum from every angle and perspective, and I'm back to thinking of God as a transcendant spirit or total universal consciousness,
including and seemingly expressed through LIFE itself.
In my early days of my initial awakening, I did consider such things as powers and principalities, of hiearchies, and empires, topped by some
"creature" like a universal president of sorts, and concluded that if there were such a thing as "satan" that guy would probably qualify as a self
proclaimed emporer of the universe. There's also the notion of a universal spiritual controversy involving issues of authority and rebellion against
authority, of domination and submission, of divide and conquor - and I'm now very pleased to thing of God, as Jesus did which he "framed" or
"re-framed" to the Woman at the Well, where he said to her when she pointed out that they had nothing in common, with her being a Samaritan who
worshipped on the mountain, and he a Jew who worshipped in the Temple (which for Jesus had become corrupted by empire) "A time is coming, and indeed
it is already here (he being himself present) when people will worship NEITHER on the moutain OR in the temple - since God is spirit and truth, and as
such seeks worship only in spirit, and in truth."
Therefore, might it be possible to convince your husband, although he is reading the NT if he's reading the Bible, that while the OT seems to depict
an alien of some kind wielding advanced technologies and playing the "role" of "God", that instead he might consider God as the transcendant spirit of
the universe itself, and not any one creature within it, you know, just to be on the safe side, given the degree of confusion that is possible
surrounding these issues, and the "sticky wicket" of authoritative leadership, where higher powers are over higher powers, as in some sort of
technological, temporal power, and my reasoning is that if there WERE any satanic figure anywhere, it would be best to undo his power and authority
according to the spirit of the living God made manifest in love, through the person of Jesus Christ. From this "frame" the Old Testament, although the
causation of history may have been led or manipulated by "agents of God's will" who's highest technology may be thought of in terms of integrity and
promise keeping, the word, and a process of differentiation and reintegration (the Exodus), nevertheless, the FORESHADOWING or the allegory and
formative historical causation led, eventually, to the person of God himself stepping into the "frame" already made by others as Jesus, where man was
made by God out of love (takes two to love) to contain nothing less than the fullness of the spirit of God, in the fullness of time and history. The
implications of this are liberating to the consciousness of man, with a balanced and healthy awareness, which recognizes the self as accepted in God,
with God's sovereign will reigning supreme ie: nothing really to worry about, safe, secure, never psychotic, unbalanced or confused, or...manipulated
by the "powers and principalities". Then, in the love of Christ, there is no height, no width nor depth capable of separating us from the one TRUE God
of the very HIGHEST high of ALL, relative to which any mere creature or technology, would be rendered powerless. And so I'm then left thinking here of
the whole of all creation as the "body" of God, which through no small feat, by the divine Phi Ratio of extension and proportion, and the miracle of
consciousness and of consciousness awareness, was "holographically" and non-locally represented or manifested in the "mere" person, the "mere" human
being, who was Jesus of Nazareth become "The Christ" in his own Christ Realization as one with the Spirit of God, who is both awareness, and the love
of creation and evolution. Here then we the lowly sinner and follower, can rest assured once again, through our sympathetic harmonious connection with
God, through the person of Jesus and the ever present and refreshed and renewed Christmind, then we are known, understood and unconditionally loved,
JUST AS WE ARE, and that we need not perform the ultimate act of "cosmological heroics" simply because the student cannot and need not, be as great as
Then, although a little red faced at first perhaps, in recognition of our own ignorance, all mental illness and the possibility for mental illness
surely fades away, as we are covered, and protected, by the intercessory grace of Jesus Christ, in spirit, who lives in us with us in him in spirit,
truth, love, and in therefore in conscious awareness and increasing understanding, along with the resulting increase in overall mental and physical
health and well being!
"And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free - but if you are freed for my sake, why then, you shall we truly free indeed!"
This is the happy peaceful, loving spirit of Jesus Christ who in his supreme love for us, and who in love, conquors over the all and the all in all
including any mere "creatures" some of whom may even be jealous of man, who thought last, is first...
I fought my way through this whole thing, on more than one occasion, and if I didn't have a strong mind, and the willingness to use everything I had
to reconcile my experience with reality, in a way that is helpful and loving both to myself and my fellow man, I would surely have gone insane, and
became psychotic or schitzophrenic, which is one of the reasons I make this post out of love for my fellow man, because I know as much as anyone, that
there are some jagged rocks in the shoals of destruction, all around the Lighthouse, which few among us have the presence to even heed, and so the
mental wards pile up with Popes and Jesus' and Demon Possessed, the mind crushed, etc etc. because this stuff is exceedingly difficult to unravel, and
it may not be for the average Joe to try to work it all out, and it isn't - the work was already done, and already completed in full.
Needless to say, I am certain that the love and protection and care of God is with you both, but if something starts as a little off or a little "in"
sane, may it lead to going literally in SANE as in into sanity
, not crazy wild eyed conjecture about ancient aliens as God (although
very possibly or even likely true!), whereby whatever "they" might have been doing, for whatever reason, was nevertheless utilized by the Real God to
reveal something even greater by far, by many orders of magnitude, in the simple yet unfathomably deep wellspring of love, which drove Jesus himself
to make the ultimate sacrifice (Great Work of All Ages(, for the sake of love and freedom, that we and by extension, the whole world, might be truly
free indeed (creation itself redeemed), and at long last, if the truth be known, able to finally breathe a sigh of relief, and RELAX!
