The moment you enter into a relationship, you begin to create, because you draw identity from your present form of expression, and understanding; your perception on how you see things. Because of this, you begin to carry over past patterns of behavioral response into those new situations and relationships, and so, your history repeats itself. This makes you less effective in your present relationship because you are not fully present, open and complete. It hinders the potential of that situation and relationship that might exist. You might say that we are imprisoned by our own conceptual and emotional blocks that prevent the full experience of the present situation.
Romans 2:14, 15 declares, “For when the gentiles which have not the law, do by nature (lifestyle, habits), the things contained in the law (of sin and death, Romans 8:2), these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves; which show the work of the law written in their hearts; their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else accusing on another.” Many of us are not using the fullness of our God given potential, because we are imprisoned by our own conceptual and emotional blocks that prevent the full experience of God’s presence in our situations and relationships. II Corinthians mentions that we are open epistles, known and read of all men. The book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ gives us a look at the inner man and how Christ brings us redemption as stated in Revelation 5: 1-5: “And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne, a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals (conceptual and emotional blocks that prevent the full experience of the presence of God within the secret inner man). And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, ‘Who is worthy to open the book and loose the seals (break, destroy, to deal with the secret faults, Palms 19:12) thereof?’ And no man in heaven, nor in earth neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to lo look thereon. And I wept much because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders said unto me, ‘Weep not; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Roof of David, has prevailed (at the cross and resurrection) to open the book, and to lose the seven seals (7 is spiritual perfection; secrets of the totality of God) thereof.’ And I beheld, and lo in the midst of the throne (place of authority) and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb (Christ Jesus) as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits (attributes, Isaiah 11:2) of God sent forth into all the earth.”
One of those ‘seals’ is fear; the sense of losing is the base of fear. For example, in a love relationship with someone, if you say ‘I love you’, your action expects a reaction; it is conditional; you wait for the same response. But if the other person doesn’t respond, you fear you’re not loved; you have a fear of losing it. But if you say ‘I love you’ and not expect a response, your love is unconditional; it is real, it is the God kind of love, because you’re going to love them anyway. Fear is the energy that contracts, hides and harms. Love is the energy that expands, reveals and heals.
Another ‘seal’ to mention here is guilt. Guilt is a needless emotion. We use guilt as a false sense of punishment, so that it can allow the ‘self’ or ‘ego’, to continue to do those things it feels guilty about; pleasure and pain. Ego is like a gravitational force field; it pulls; it is a fictitious (false) identity with a sense of fear, vulnerability and a need to protect and defend itself. Genesis 3:1-7 and 10-13 is a good example.
We must realize that just trying to abandon the old places of our lives, does not bring deliverance until we are ready to receive and accept the new places that we have been called into. It is a process, a preparation that the Holy Spirit must do in us. Remember; there is no external change without internal development, because consciousness carries the nature of what formed it. Remember that in order to heal, you must first recognize the wound; the wound of hurt, the wound of love. Inner peace does not come by outer trinkets. Inner peace comes by cleansing the soul. Oh this beautiful and loving Christ! “Lord, you made us for Yourself; and the heart of man is restless, until it finds its rest in Thee.” Augustine of Hippo.
I Peter 5:7: “Casting all your care upon Him; for He cares for you.” Jesus said in Matthiew 11:28: “Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Give it all to Jesus; He is waiting to take it.
With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we can find the fullness of each day. Eternity is embodied in the consciousness of Love. God is not in condition; God is in being; flow in harmony with The Great I Am through obedience and faith, and you will find the Kingdom. You are being; the rest is simply a journey. Bless every person and condition and give thanks. Affirm the perfection of God’s creation.
When God looked at His creation, He said ‘It is good’ (Genesis 1:10, 12, 18, 21, 25). When He created man on the 6th day (Genesis 1:31), he said, ‘It is very good’. Adoration and gratitude forever more to the precious Lamb of God who has prevailed to open the book (you and I) and loose the 7 seals of the inner man to reveal Christ in you, the hope of Glory. For Christ flowing out of you is the Glory. John 7:38 states that Jesus said this: “He that believeth on Me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly (womb, matrix, center of the soul) shall flow rivers of living water.” John 1:16 declares, “And of His fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” Bless His Holy Name.
