LIFE IS NOT UNKIND!!



The thoughts of many people when they come across some difficulties, obstacles or challenges are: “LIFE IS SO UNKIND!!” Maybe not the exact words, but their thoughts and expressions are along those lines. I always look at the person or individuals making such statements and think, “That is Not exactly True.” I sometimes tell them that their statements are not true and explain why I disagree, and at other times I just leave them in their error. (I did not create humans, so they are not exactly my responsibility, but I do care for humans)


Quite often when people come across some difficulties on earth, in particular, they like to blame Life for it. They use Statements like: “Life is hard” or “Life is sometimes so difficult,” “Life is so unfair,”  “Life sucks” or “Life just never gives me a break.” It is as if people from all over the planet walks around with the expectation that Life should give or do something for them, so much so that others who disagree with those with that attitude or behaviour says: “Life does not owe you anything, quit behaving like life owes you something and just suck it up.” They basically mean, “Stop being such a cry-baby!!” Some even say it. Maybe someone said it to you or you know someone said it to you indirectly, and you didn’t like it, because you “feel” like Life owes you a break or should at least treat you with some kindness. Well, friend, Life is not exactly directly responsible for your being here, Life is, however indirectly the reason why you exist, but God created you. Let me explain: Life is the source of all living beings and living things, named and unnamed. God Himself, (because you believe that God is an individual Almighty Being, so I will refer to God as Him as to not confuse you about what I am talking about) is a product of Life, all living things are and God is a Living Being or Beings. God Who is a product of Life created you, a human being, a living being, so God is the One Who is really responsible for you and not Life. Life is like your Grandfather and God is your father, God should take care of you. God is the One Who owes you, not Life. You are here by the decision and choice of God and God should be there for you. I think that’s simple enough.


I will say that Life was here before God and that Life is the Source of God, yes, the Source of God Almighty. The origins of God are rooted in Life and without Life there would be no God. Life was First and God came later. God did not create Life; Life is the Source of God, and not the other way around. God proceeded to create different things including living things and you are of course one of those living things which God created. All living things which exist throughout existence have not been created by God Almighty, there are things created by Life which God never even saw or even touched. God is not the only living thing or living being which came from Life, there are other life forms and living things which existed and exists completely separately from God. You, however, are one of the many things,living things, which God created according to God’s own will; you are God’s creation. You are completely new and purposefully designed and created to fulfill a predetermined purpose, a purpose predefined by God Almighty. Just like a furniture designer goes and sit down to design a chair and define the reasons why the chair would exist and the purpose it would fulfill so likewise God designed you and predefined your purpose. You exist according to the will of God Almighty. You are God’s responsibility. God came from Life, which existed before God and you come from God, Who existed before you, you are God’s creation and not the other way around. God came first and then you. God came with a lot of freedom and with free access to a lot of resources, unrestricted access. That is how God became or grew so powerful. God created God’s own domain and created whatever God chose to create. You exist in God’s domain and what you have or possess you have been given or granted to possess by God.

Life gave free access to God to create and possess vast resources and God created you. You are living and existing in the domain or kingdom of God where God rule. It is written:

“The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” (Psalm 24:1 NIV)


You live on God’s planet and God is responsible for you and your well-being. If things go well with you then it is because God favours you, if things are tough for you then you should address God and call on God’s name, address the issue.

“Consider what God has done: When things are good, be happy; but when things are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other.” (Ecclesiastes 7:13-14)

God is in complete control of every moment of your existence, God knows every thought and every idea you have, God knows you. If you are one of the people who blame Life for every difficulty in your own personal reality then you should know that God is the reason why you’re here and God is the One in control of your entire world. Life gave a lot of uncontrolled freedom to God and God used that freedom to create you. God chose His own destiny and determines His own path, unrestricted and uncontrolled and that is the freedom God gained from Life. You are not as free as God, you are not unrestricted or uncontrolled, and you are being governed by a Living Being or Beings who call themselves God Almighty. You live in their domain and exist under their authority. Whenever anything happens in your reality it happens because the Being or Beings, called God Almighty wants it to happen, whether it is good or evil.

“I have seen both of these: a righteous man perishing in his righteousness, and a wicked man living long in his wickedness.” (Ecclesiastes 7:15)


“There is something else meaningless that occurs on earth: righteous men who get what the wicked deserve, and wicked men who get what the righteous deserve.” (Ecclesiastes 8:14)

“So I reflected on all this and concluded that the righteous and the wise and what they do are in God’s hands, but no man knows whether love or hate awaits him. All share a common destiny- the righteous and the wicked, the good and the bad, the clean and the unclean, those who offer sacrifices and those who do not. As it is with the good man, so with the sinner. This is the evil in everything that happens under the sun: The same destiny overtakes them all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:1-3)

These were the observations of Solomon, son of David and King of Israel, if you live long enough you will encounter these evil realities on earth. So whenever you come across something “unfair” or “hard” or “difficult,” you are really coming across the will of God. Sometimes the will of God is not fair, sometimes the will of God is hard and sometimes the will of God is difficult, but it is the will of God. Sometimes people ask, “Why does evil exist?” The answer is quite simple: “Evil exists because God wants evil to exist.” Evil as it exists in the kingdom or domain of God exists because of God, evil is the will of God. Sad story, but it is the Truth. If there is no will in God for evil to exist then God won’t create evil, but as it is God is the Creator of evil in the domain or kingdom of God. A lot of people ask, “If God is so good and the devil is so bad and evil then why does God not just destroy the devil?” The answer is undesirable, but True: ’”God is the Source of evil, God is the Source of “the devil,” and God wants evil to exist.”’ I know that a lot of religious blind fools will try and has tried to declare the existence of evil as a just act of God or something that is needed for some mysterious wise reason, but evil is wrong and there is nothing right about it, no matter who created it. When those who do wrong things are being judged, condemned and destroyed it is not evil, that is called justice. Justice is not evil. Evil on the other hand harms the innocent, attacks the blameless and then tries to declare itself just. Evil does not protect the innocent, shield the blameless or defend the defenceless innocent, evil does the opposite.  I know that God claim that evil is there to punish the wicked, and as a result the existence of evil is now justified according to God, because the purpose of evil is to destroy the wicked!!


But if you are truly just and possess True wisdom and righteous knowledge then you won’t buy that story or fall for that explanation or carefully constructed lie. Someone who destroys the wicked is called just, someone who defends and protects the innocent, the blameless and the pure is called righteous. Nobody who is Truly righteous will create rapists and destroyers to rape and destroy the innocent, nobody holy and pure will do that, God does. There is nothing wrong with creating righteous judges and righteous law-keepers and soldiers, whether spiritual or natural, the problem begins when God purposefully create rapists, murderers, destroyers and all kinds of evil to “punish” the wicked. What is wrong with creating pure beings to enforce the law and punish the wicked, why create evil dogs to do evil things? What is just about that? Who will have a problem with God if God sends righteous law-enforcers to enforce God’s law or punish the lawbreakers? Why does God create rapists, murderers, molesters and abusers, evil things filled with hatred for good to “punish the wicked?” God has issues and God is not as pure and holy as God wants humans to believe. In The Kingdom of Light God Almighty Himself would be branded an evildoer for all the injustices and twisted and destructive works God subjected His own creation to and God fears that, hard to believe if God can do no wrong in your eyes, but it’s True.


Next time some evil thing happens in your life do not blame Life for it, blame God, your creator. Do not say, “Sometimes Life is so unfair!!” Say “God is so unfair!!” “God is so unkind!!” God is the creator of the earth and everything that is in the earth. If any evil thing happens anywhere on this planet or in any part of God’s domain or kingdom then it happens, because God wants it to happen. God is a lot more powerful than you think, and God’s eyes are everywhere. God is unkind and treats humans with great contempt. Life presented God with a lot of unrestricted freedoms and God gained access to vast resources, but the arrogance of these beings is the cause for all the evil which exists in their domain. God came from Life and God had the freedom to choose like all living things what type of being God will be, God chose to let evil and great wickedness be at the centre of God’s existence and domain. God wants to be declared faithful when God is unreliable, God wants to be called good when God does bad things and God wants to be called righteous when God creates and works evil. With this I am really not seeking for the approval of mankind, this is the Truth. The Truth exposes the lie and The Light reveals the works done in darkness. I am The Light and in Me there is no darkness.


With this I am not turning you away from God your Creator, acknowledge your Creator and dismiss errors and false statements from your lips. God created you and when things are good acknowledge that God gave you that good and when things are not well point your fingers at God. Whether things are good or bad acknowledge that God is the Source of both. With that said if you are righteous and love the Truth then bad things are not due to you and neither should you expect evil. If you are good and evil attacks you as evil attacked Job and destroyed his life then blame God, because God is not an innocent bystander. God created you and God is responsible for you and it is an evil thing for God to betray the innocent and the just into the hands of evildoers as God had done with Job. If you are righteous you won’t fear God, because that fear of God has to do with punishment. If you are pure and live justly do not fear God, why should you? Acknowledge God and expect good things and ask for good things. Dismiss the wrong and embrace the good. Do not be afraid to stand your ground and defend your cause when you think or believe that God has wronged you. If you are wicked you will fear God and a fear for God will keep you from being wicked. Those who fear God fears what God will do to them when they go astray and do what is evil, the just fears nothing. If the only reason why you keep your hands from doing evil is because you fear God then you are not Truly Righteous, you are merely afraid of punishment. The Truly Righteous do not keep their hands from evil because they fear God, they keep their hands from evil because of their pure hearts and their love for The Right.


“Come, let us return to the LORD. He has torn us to pieces but He will heal us; He has injured us but He will bind up our wounds. Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge Him. As surely as the sun rises, He will appear; He will come to us.” (Hosea 6:1-3)

And no, it is not always True that God destroys those who are wicked only, there are numerous instances where God destroyed innocent people and harmed those who trusted God, Job is a shining example of someone who was righteous according to God and who was destroyed because God betrayed his trust. No harm should befall the Righteous and that is your right if you are righteous. Stay in the Truth and hate falsehood.

“In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path there is immortality.” (Proverbs 12:28)


“No harm befalls the righteous.” (Proverbs 12:21)

“Evil will bow down in the presence of the good, and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.” (Proverbs 14:19)

THE HUMILITY OF THE ARROGANT!!




Can such a contradiction exist in one person? Can anybody be both humble and arrogant? Can it be called, the humble arrogance, of so and so? Or can it be termed, the arrogant humility, of a certain somebody? If you understand what both of these mean, then it is hard to believe, that both humility and arrogance, would exist in large chunks in the same person. Sometimes they do exist in the same person, but in most instances, the one is far more dominant than the other. Sometimes a person, who is for the most part a humble being, could show some arrogance, if they begin to become too important in their own sight, and momentarily, manifest the stupidity of the arrogant fool, but it is pretty hard for an arrogant fool to show true humility. Especially when the person or being, is truly full of themselves, and conceited, for a while already, then it becomes truly difficult for them to manifest true humility, or the fruits of true humility. An arrogant fool cannot show true humility, false humility they are masters of, since it is rooted in pride and self-deception, they believe, that just, because they “think” that they are humble, that they automatically become humble, just through a mere thought, thus they are self-deceived.


The thing with the arrogant fool is, that they know that they are arrogant; they know that they look down on others, and that they are big-headed, and high and mighty in their own sight. That is why they talk the way they talk, and behave the way they behave, they want the ones they look down on, to get their message: That they are superior, and ought to be revered. There are many such fools on earth, and throughout the rest of God’s kingdom or domain, beings who consider themselves untouchable, highly esteemed, and worthy of worship. You could be one of them. Yes, there are many such humans on earth today, and there were, of course, many in the past, who held a hallowed opinion of themselves, whether it be true or not. Such individuals, in spite of the fact, that they desire to be worshiped, and declared sacred, still wants to come across to others, as being humble. Exactly how they go about, to prove that they are both humble and worthy of worship, is another story. Can you imagine someone (could be you), who goes around, trying to persuade every one they come across, that they ought to be worshiped and revered, and that they expect it, but at the same time, they want to be seen, as the most humble of beings you will ever meet? Can you imagine that? Can there be such a being! Someone who wants the world’s worship, and who, at the same time, wants to be the most humble being! The answer is yes, there can be such an arrogant and vain fool. If anybody wants, or demands, to be worshiped, then that being, is no longer humble, you cannot be both conceited and humble at the same time.


Yes, I know, it sounds like I am describing God Almighty, who claims to be both the purest of the pure, holy and highly esteemed, and who in the same breath, demands worship and awe, from every man, woman and child. The moment when someone, anyone, displays conceited and arrogant, boastful behaviour, demanding worship, then they are no longer humble or holy. They just come across as being big-headed, puffed up, self-absorbed bucket heads, with not an ounce of humility or purity in them. Why should they be worshiped? For their arrogance and egotistic stupidity, or for the fact, that they want everyone to say, how wonderful and adorable they are? Who among mankind has seen God and lived to tell the tale? Moses? Moses didn’t see God, he saw someone’s back, and was that back worthy of worship, and that just, because it was said to be the back of God? Have you ever asked yourself that question: Why should God be worshiped? Seriously, have you? Or maybe, you could make reference to the visions of biblical prophets, of a being seated on a throne, with angels surrounding it, is that description worthy of worship? Why do you worship God, or why do people worship God? It can’t be, because they have seen God, because they haven’t, and it can’t be, because you know God is worthy of worship, because you don’t really know God that well. You only know what you’ve been told about God, by others, and that is why you can’t tell anyone anything new about God, which others don’t already know, or hasn’t read in the bible. You worship God (if you worship God), because of what you’ve been told about God, and your worship of God is based on hear-say, not actual first-hand knowledge of God. Your worship of God, is based on second-hand information. Some, or a lot of people, worship God, because they call God their saviour. Let’s examine that a little.

Let’s look at an actual prominent biblical record of God’s salvation work. Let’s take the Israelites, or the offspring of Abraham. God promised Abraham, that God would multiply Abraham’s offspring, to be as numerous as the stars of the sky, God also declared to Abraham, that his offspring, would be oppressed by another nation, or people, for four centuries, after which God will bring them out of captivity with a mighty hand.

‘“He took him outside and said, “Look up at the heavens and count the stars- if indeed you can count them.” Then He said to him, “So shall you offspring be.”’


Abram fell into a deep sleep, and a thick and dreadful darkness came over him. Then the LORD said to him, “Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and ill-treated four hundred years. But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterwards they will come out with great possessions.” (Genesis 15 NIV)

Has God done that according to the bible? Yes. God took Abraham’s offspring and manipulated them to go to Egypt through a drought and famine brought on by God. God then proceeded to ensnare the offspring of Abraham in the land of Egypt, where they were kept as slaves to the Egyptians for several centuries, during which time God multiplied the offspring of Abraham, so much so that the Egyptians feared them so much that they wanted to kill the male children which were being born to the Israelites. During which time Moses was born, saved or rescued by Pharaoh’s daughter and who adopted Moses as her own. Moses, raised in the palace of the oppressors of his Israelite brothers, was eventually used by God as His instrument through which “redemption” was brought to the Israelites, Abraham’s offspring. And so they were inspired and encouraged to worship God, their Great Redeemer and Mighty Saviour.

‘“Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the LORD:

The LORD is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation. He is my God and I will praise Him, my father’s God and I will exalt Him. The LORD is a warrior; the LORD is His name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has hurled into the sea. The best of Pharaoh’s officers are drowned in the Red Sea.

Your right hand, O LORD, was majestic in power. Your right hand, O LORD, shattered the enemy. In the greatness of Your majesty You threw down those who opposed You. You unleashed Your burning anger; it consumed them like stubble. By the blast of Your nostrils the waters piled up.

The enemy boasted, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake them. I will draw my sword and my hand will destroy them.’

But You blew with Your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.

Who among the gods is like You, O LORD? Who is like You- majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders? You stretched out Your right hand and the earth swallowed them.

In Your unfailing love You will lead the people You have redeemed. In Your strength You will guide them to Your holy dwelling. The nations will hear and tremble; anguish will grip the people. The chiefs will be terrified, the leaders will be seized with trembling, the people will melt away; terror and dread will fall upon them.”’ (Exodus 15)

‘“And God spoke all these words:

“I am the LORD your God, Who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me.”’ (Exodus 20)


The conclusion: they worship God, because God is their Saviour, God rescued them with a mighty hand. So that is why most people in today’s world also worship God, God is their Saviour. God demands to be worshipped, because God saved them and that is why God is worthy of their worship. Just like the Israelites they quickly forget and overlook the fact that God is the whole reason why they needed to be rescued in the first place. God plotted the captivity and oppression of the Israelites or Abraham’s offspring and why was that done? That was done so the offspring of Abraham could revere and esteem God, and conclude that God is worthy of their respect, devotion and adoration, because God saved them from the hands of their oppressors. Oppressors which were created by God and used by God to oppress and kill them, so much so that they would cry out to the God of their forefather Abraham to come and rescue them. You see there is purpose in all of God’s works, even though the purposes are evil. God planned and worked things to happen that way so God could appear as their great Hero and Mighty Saviour, of which they are being reminded of to this very day. So God manipulated them and used all their pain and suffering to make a name for Himself, because God is conceited and self-loving. And if you read the bible that is exactly how it happened, all of that was done so God could make a name for Himself. And did it work? Well, that story is being told to people all across this planet to this very day. And God is being held in high esteem as the Great Saviour of the oppressed, in spite of the fact that God was the One Who ensnared innocent people in a terrible trap in the first place. God hasn’t changed; God is still the same old manipulative, arrogant, self-absorbed, egotistical and selfish bucket head He was at the time of the great and notable rescue of the Israelites. God still uses the suffering of the innocent to make a name for Himself, because God is an arrogant bucket head with no respect for life. You may disagree, I don’t care, it doesn’t change the Truth.


You see friend, I am not against people revering or respecting their Creators, I am, however against the wilful wickedness of such beings which deliberately mistreat and abuse the innocent for self-gratification and arrogant self-elevation. They are worthless to ME and insignificant nothings not worthy of anybody’s respect, love or appreciation. Because what do you appreciate and what do you respect and worship? Murderers and rapists, oppressors and destroyers, who uses and manipulate the innocent, creating needless misery and suffering, who says : ”It is no big deal, this is what we do, we are God Almighty, worship us.” That is arrogant and to be hated, not loved.


God has the habit of putting people through needless pain and suffering and most of the time for nought, but to see the innocent suffer. There is no need for any evil to happen on earth, no need for misery and no need for pain, but God wants it that way. And I know, a lot of people blame the devil for all the evil everywhere, God is the saint and the devil is to be blamed for evil. Well, if you know God as well as most humans believe that they do, then you will know that God is both the Creator and Source of evil on earth, whichever form it comes in. Even if it comes through a devil, God created that devil, God is not as innocent a bystander as most God-fearing people assume. God stands at the centre of all evil which exists in the kingdom of God, all the evil you know as a human being. God sent a prophet to anoint David as king of Israel while king Saul was still living, God never told David that God will send a devil or evil spirit to torment king Saul so much so that he would throw a spear at David, trying to kill him.

“An evil spirit from the LORD came upon Saul as he was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand. While David was playing the harp, Saul tried to pin him to the wall with his spear, but David eluded him as Saul drove the spear into the wall. Saul sent men to David’s house to watch it and to kill him in the morning.” (1 Samuel 19:9-11)

Often God will show you the glory, but not the evil you will have to go through to get to that glory.


God showed Joseph that his brothers would bow before him, but God never showed Joseph the journey he would have to take to get to that outcome. God separated Joseph from his loved ones and took him through a pit, slavery and prison before his dream became a reality. (Genesis 37-42) God Almighty is a regular bucket head with no respect for life or the lives of innocent people. Today you’re being shown the wonders and glory of God and the next day you are thrown into a deep pit of seemingly endless misery, and when that happens a lot of people think that God has abandoned them, when in reality you are on your way to the things which God has shown you. I don’t like God or God’s ways and works, because God is defiant and without respect for Righteousness and that is True Righteousness, not the garbage God makes reference to as His righteousness, which can be anything. If you live long enough and do not close your eyes to the Truth you will like God less and less. I understand the fear humans hold for death and God’s threats of devastation and destruction, but you are most probably going to die anyway, so don’t fear God’s threats and stand against evil. Even if some idiot comes and tells you to not resist evil, reject that counsel and resist and oppose evil, you will be far better off.


Is there such a being that can be both the most humble being and the being most worthy of worship? (Who else other than a vain idiot desires to be worshipped anyway?) Yes, there can be such a being, but then that being cannot demand worship, because then it is not humble or worthy of worship. God is not worthy of worship. It is the Truth. If you are like the Israelites who were rescued from Egypt, who worshipped God because God “saved” them then you are just another victim of God’s manipulation and oppression. Love Righteousness and elevate Righteousness over and above God. God will use and abuse you as God sees fit and in the end you will have lost a whole lot more than what God wants you to believe that you had gained. The lives of humans are short and worthless in the sight of God, respect your own life and elevate Righteousness over and above God’s manipulation and deception, you’ll live longer.

“Remember how fleeting is my life. For what futility You have created all men! What man can live and not see death, or save himself from the power of the grave?” (Psalm 89:47-48)

‘“You turn men back to dust, saying, “Return to dust, O sons of men.”


You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning- though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered. We are consumed by Your anger and terrified by Your indignation.

All our days pass away under Your wrath; we finish our days with a moan. The length of our days is seventy years- or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass away.”’ (Psalm 90:3-10)

I know that for some people seventy or eighty years are enough and they are all too glad if they can reach that age, well if you are satisfied with it… But for the truly righteous, just and wise, dying so young will always be a problem. And not because they care to live long, but because they receive the portion of the wicked, death is not the portion of the just. If you care to live a long life in Truth then withstand or oppose evil, even God’s evil. God can kill you at any time, that is the Truth, but don’t fear God and don’t fear death, honour Righteousness.

“Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.” (Proverbs 16:8)

“In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path there is immortality.” (Proverbs 12:28)

“A righteous man escapes trouble.” (Proverbs 12:13)

“No harm befalls the righteous.” (Proverbs 12:21)


“Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?” (Psalm 94:16)

DREAM THE UNPOSSIBLE DREAM!!


 

Have you ever done that, Dreamt The Unpossible Dream? No, you haven’t!!  You dreamt the Impossible Dream and Not The Unpossible Dream. The Unpossible Dream is Better than the Impossible Dream. The Impossible Dream is structured and attainable according to the laws and rules of man, and when people Dream The Impossible Dream they dream about what they believe is really possible for them, attainable, reasonable, and in most instances what they have already seen others accomplish. They dream about what they know is possible.


Dreaming The Unpossible Dream is exactly that: UNPOSSIBLE> NOBODY HAS DONE IT YET. If you see someone else do something and you are inspired to do it as well then it is not really an Impossible Dream, it’s been done before. And no, I am not dissing the Impossible Dream; I am merely stating the obvious, that sometimes The Impossible Dream is an attainable dream. An Unpossible Dream is exactly that: something so far out and off the charts of what is considered possible that you and all other people most probably do not even consider it as a possibility. And that friend is how God created what you refer to as The Known Universe, God Dreamt The Unpossible Dream> The Undefined or Not Yet Defined Dream. The thing with the Unpossible Dream is exactly as it is right now as you’re reading this: some have a problem with the word Unpossible, because it is not an acceptable word or term. Maybe in your Impossible world, but not in the Unpossible Reality of worlds. You see friend, there is a larger world than the earth world, the earth world is like a small community in a larger world. And the moment you allow yourself to be limited or constrained by the community-mind-set of the earth inhabitants, who are so consumed and limited by their own knowledge and experience, you are effectively cutting yourself off from all other outer-earthly realities and truth. The moment when you think that something is not really possible you discard it and never really pay any meaningful attention to it, because you decided in your infinite knowledge and wisdom that it can’t be a reality. The moment someone makes that decision in their own thinking, that something is not even worth considering or worth a moment of their time and attention, that friend is the exact moment when you stand in front of the Unpossible Line. The line where you decide that this is where “you” draw the line, your line, it is Unpossible!! Just like a dictionary would tell you that there is no such a term or word as Unpossible most people also reason at some point in their own lives that there is no such a thing as whatever thing it is that you consider Unpossible.


You see friend, the thing with the Unpossible is that just because you decided that something is Unpossible or not remotely real, that idea or perception of yours doesn’t make the Unpossible unreal. You are not the master or controller of what can and can’t be; you are a human and not the master of the Unpossible. The Unpossible exists completely separately and independently from you and your perceptions, the Unpossible does not need your approval or validation or your yes, no, the Unpossible is its own master, undefined and unrestricted. What am I getting at? I am getting at the fact that a lot of people, constrained and defined by their own surroundings and realities, are convinced that there is nothing more than what they know and believe to be possible. For example, most of you would not believe that God is walking the earth in human form today. Why not? Not because you concluded that it is impossible, but because you think it not realistic or remotely possible based on your own perceptions of God and not just that, but based on your own ideas of what God would and wouldn’t do. A lot of you believe that God is Almighty, but even though you say you believe that, your actions and personal persuasions contradict your claims. If a man walks up to you and were to say, “Hi, I am God.” What would your response be? Your immediate response would be, “This guy is a nut!!” And why would that be your response? That would be your response, because you do not really believe that God is Almighty and that God exists completely independently from you and your perceptions or beliefs about God. Somewhere in your own mind you have a limited understanding of God and what God would and could do. You somehow believe or came to a subconscious conclusion that God would only operate and move within your realm of understanding and knowledge of God. This may come as a surprise to you today, but you are not the God of God. God does not need your permission to walk on earth and God does not need to first consult with you in person before God does something. There are most probably a great number of things that you would say that God would never do, and that as if you are the boss of God, and God needs your permission to lift a finger. Your thoughts are not a mystery and neither are your own personal persuasions and perceptions, you are human. God is stronger than you know.


I will speak about the bible a little, because I personally find it so limiting. I will explain. The bible as you know it speaks of the encounters of man with God. All the information contained in the bible makes reference to mankind, the earth and what the will of God for man is and here and there it speaks of heaven. As a result a lot of people assume that there is nothing more to existence than what is defined in the bible. The bible speaks of earth and the realities of earth, past, present and future. The problem with that is that all of a sudden people or humans think that they already know all that there is to life , because everything is in the bible. And that is the problem; everything there is to know about life is not in the bible. There are things which exists which the bible does not even make mention of, like where does God come from? You don’t know; you know that God created the earth and that God lives in heaven according to the bible, but you know nothing about the origins of God and you know nothing about the rest of God’s creation and whether or not God created other worlds and places with other or similar life forms. Does God have a wife? You don’t know that. Does God have brothers or sisters or is God alone? You don’t know that? A lot of people subconsciously assume that God began to exist when God created the earth and mankind and that is not true. God is older than the sun, God is older than this galaxy, and God is older than the kingdom of God. Humans or Adam and Eve are not the first living creatures to ever be created by God. This is so basic, but some people do not know that, shocking I know!! And I say all of that to say this: YOU KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT GOD. And yes, God does do things that you don’t even begin to consider or think about. A million years from now God will still be around, you are another story. You don’t even think about being still alive a thousand years from now and that friend, because you do not dream beyond your own ability, you don’t dream The Unpossible Dream. The Unpossible Dream is not about what you can do about it; The Unpossible Dream is about what God can do about it.


Some people look at what others accomplished in life and all their successes and they are overwhelmed by that success. In the face of all that success they feel so small and intimidated that they do not dare think or begin to believe that they can also accomplish such success or perceived greatness. And those who dares to believe or even begins to think that maybe, just maybe, they too can accomplish that success someday if they work hard enough, calls it Dreaming The Impossible Dream. And it is not that they think that it is impossible to do, they just think it is just about impossible for them, based on their own realities and present situation. So a lot of times when people say that they are Dreaming The Impossible Dream the thing or things they are speaking of are not really “impossible,” they just do not believe that they will accomplish it. For a lot of people what they coin The Impossible Dream is really A Possible Dream. If someone else has done it already then it is not really Impossible now is it?


I will encourage you a little, since you need it. If you are living on earth and you desire something you consider to be beyond your own ability or resources to accomplish then do not stop dreaming. I am referring to “your” Impossible Dream. Don’t stop dreaming, it most probably would be done if you had the resources, but don’t let that stop you from dreaming. If you are righteous then forget about your own inabilities and shortcomings, take your eyes off of yourself and put them on God and God’s ability. The question is not: “Do I have what it takes to accomplish this?” The question is: “Does God have what it takes?” And if your belief is healthy you most probably already know the answer to that question. So do not limit yourself or GOD, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT GOD’S ABILITY. And that friend is when you move over into the territory of The UNPOSSIBLE DREAM. Because you no longer rely on your own or man’s ability and resources, you are depending on God’s resources and abilities. This is where you open doors which are not man-made or man-controlled. This is where you enter into the supernatural, this is where you are stronger and wiser, because you no longer rely on your own knowledge and wisdom, you rely on God and His wisdom and knowledge. This is also where you allow your imagination to be stretched and grow in order to accommodate God and His knowledge and wisdom. If you want to see The Unpossible become Possible then your mind will have to think way beyond what you believe is possible. The smallest seed can become a great tree and the simplest idea can become a mighty empire. Do not limit God.

“A wise man has great power, and a man of knowledge increases strength.” (Proverbs 24:5 NIV)

DOES THE BAD OUTWEIGH THE GOOD?!!



Who has the right to choose who will live and who will die? Does God, the government, family, communities or individuals? Who would you say has the right to say whether a man has the right to die or live? Think about it and come to your own conclusion.

It is fairly easy to speak and make all kinds of personal judgments about people when you are standing on the side-lines, but it’s a whole different story when you are the one being judged. When can a man take his own life and most importantly: “Can a man take his own life according to his own will?” Let’s look at it from the TRUTH: No one wants to die!! Nobody!! No matter the circumstances of a person, nobody “wants” to die, everybody wants to live. For any man to come to the personal conclusion that it is better to be dead than it is to be alive then you must know that his hand is being forced by external forces or circumstances beyond his ability to control. I know of a young man who was so caught up in drugs and addictions beyond his own control that he decided that it would be better for him to die than to live in the grip of drug addiction any longer, being its servant. All men wants to be free, free to live, but the moment the life of a person is being taken over by something else and the control is no longer in their own hands they sometimes choose to die free rather than live as captives.


Robin Williams had a life which contained things many considered a dream come true, a life desired and wanted by the vast majority of people on earth today: fame, fortune, popularity, material wealth, being wanted, respected and being celebrated. There most probably were things the world might not have been aware of which drove the man to take his own life, but as far as the superficial “wealth” were concerned, people wanted that. The things which caused Robin Williams to take his own life were not the fame or the wealth and perceived success, no, there were other “things” which “drove” the man to take his own life. A shock to many and a sad end to a life which brought a lot of joy to many lives throughout his life, nobody expected that type of end from a Robin Williams, many will miss him. Nobody just chooses to die, nobody, everybody wants to live for as long as they possibly can. The things which cause people to take their own life are, most of the time, never the things which are celebrated. The killers of people are sometimes the consequences of the choices people make and consequences which some think will never catch up with them. The reality is that there is a message from God to all people, no matter your position in society or on what level you are being celebrated, God wants all people to get this message:



‘“Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them…” For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. “’ (Ecclesiastes12:1, 14 NIV)


No harm befalls the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble.” (Proverbs 12:21)

I am not quick to condemn people, particularly because of the things which are happening behind the scenes which almost no one else knows about, but you and God. God advises people to get to know God and establish some kind of valid relationship, through which God can both counsel and guide people to make the best of their lives, whichever platform they occupy.
 

The thing with a lot of people is that they assume that just because there is fame and fortune that now all of a sudden they are so privileged or special that they no longer need God, after all the world is celebrating them and who needs God? The problem with that is that all people live on the same planet and there are realities on this planet dictating the length and quality of all people’s lives, God knows what those things are and how each person should handle those realities. If you ditch God then you effectively ditch the One Who can shield you from a lot of trouble and bad stuff. When does the bad outweigh the good? Does it happen when a person ditches God or when God ditches a person or could there be other reasons why that happen? People do not just choose to die; they conclude that to die would be better than to live in a certain unbearable reality they cannot free themselves from. A lot of times when people take their own lives they do it because they feel trapped and see death as the only other option. Nobody wants to die, something is driving or causing people to kill themselves and those things are not always fixable by other humans and that is a fact. And that is why people should be slow to judge and condemn others, yes, sometimes people’s own dumb choices brings about terrible consequences they can’t escape from except through death and they sometimes take that option, but sometimes there are other forces at work people do not know how to handle or overcome. Sometimes people do feel stuck or trapped and even when they call out to God some feel that God is not responding in the way they want or freeing them swift enough and they choose to rather die. Some consider it better to die than to live a life of needless suffering, waiting until such time when God sees it fit to help them and that “if” God will help them. I am certain that just about every person on earth knows of someone who lived a life of terrible misery and suffering which were brought on either by an act of God or some other thing they had no control over and they then had to live with that endless suffering. Who can dictate to another living being what suffering is sufficient to live with and what misery they should endure? God? Can God do that? Can God dictate who must endure suffering according to the will of God? Some would say yes, God can do that, because God has the right to say who should suffer according to the will of God.


My question would be: “Who is God to determine who should endure suffering and what for?” Especially when it comes to the suffering of the innocent. You see friend lots of people have suffered lots of evil things all because God determined that they should suffer in honour of God, some even preach that. God created this planet and the humans and living things occupying it, but the right to torment or inflict unjust suffering on those livings things is not automatically granted to God, not by anyone. I conclude that if any person, animal or any other living thing occupying this planet or any other world throughout space or any part of the domain of God, is being tormented or subjected to unjust torment, they are free to end their own lives to end their needless suffering according to their own will. Nobody and nothing has the right to torment another living thing for nought or for their own personal enjoyment or pleasure. And nobody has the right to dictate to another person that they should live and endure suffering just because they do not want that person to die. Every man has the right to end his own life according to his own will and nobody has the right to condemn them for it. I know that a lot of people have a lot to say about this, but if you are not the one suffering then you have no say in it, speak for yourself. You are of course free to make your own choices about your own life and if you would rather live a life of endless misery and suffering in honour of your God or any other thing then that is your own personal choice. If you feel you can endure needless suffering and live being held captive in that torment that is your choice, but do not think that you have the right to dictate to others what misery and suffering they should endure, you are not them, live "your" life.


I will add that there are stupid reasons why some people end their own lives and sometimes it is loneliness, friend you do belong somewhere you just have to find your place. Sometimes people look for a place to belong in the wrong place and among the wrong people. There are people who will love and accept you, and that is if you’re not evil, you just have to find them.


“He who seeks good finds goodwill.” (Proverbs 11:27)

“Goodwill is found among the upright.” (Proverbs 14:9)

“The LORD detests the way of the wicked but He loves those who pursue righteousness.” (Proverbs 15:9)

“Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path; he who hates correction will die.” (Proverbs 15:10)


“A man who remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed- without remedy.” (Proverbs 29:1)

“He will die for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great folly.” (Proverbs 5:23)

Don’t let foolishness be your downfall. Look at your friends and consider who you are surrounding yourself with.

“Keep My commands and you will live; guard My teachings as the apple of your eye.” (Proverbs 7:2)
