Want some protection from Religious Fascists, especially the ones that live inside your own head?

A question from K:
Though it's Jesus words themselves that terrify me the most. His parable of the sheep and the goats is a case in point because there will be always someone we miss or don't want to help or can't help... I'd love your take on that as a pastor...

My answer:
Hi K, I appreciate your sharing.

I would tend to say that Jesus helped/helps us experience that God is real, and accessible to us.

I think it is important to note WHO Jesus is speaking to, when reading scripture:

  • is he speaking to regular folks, seeking God - then he is often encouraging, think Woman caught in Adultery - & Go forth now, and stay on track ; )
  • or is he speaking to Religious Fascists - any folks who block those seeking God or turn our attention to anything else besides God and who/how God is calling us (idolotry) - then Jesus is often kicking *ss, think Money Changers - & how dare you treat my Father's house like a den of robbers!

Very different energy.
So when i read the Parable of the sheep/goats, the end of Matthew 25.

I am getting the distinct impression that Jesus is speaking toward the Religious Fascists, those who think they are SET:

  • follow the Law, and you win.
  • believe the right things, and you win.
He is saying, NO - BE love with your neighbor, that is the important thing - treat everyone you meet as if they are ME.
This is a Very Different way of being a follower of Jesus in the world - and it is a completely relevant today, as it was then, IMO.

And IMO/E it isn't about doing it PERFECTLY, it is about attitude of heart.
Jesus argued for many laws that were IMPOSSIBLE to keep.
(These are the first conversations he had, in the first book of the New Testament - oh, you want to keep the law, well, then, here we go... See second 1/2 of Matthew 5 )

 

The LAW is Not the WAY.
The Way, rather, is Righteousness - listening to, believing, and following God - BEING in Right relationship with God - in alignment with and filled with, and following our Source.

The LAW is not the way, and it never was - as Paul said, laws are for children.
We are called to mature spiritually, following the Living God in every step.
This is the way, walk ye in it.

Do we fall down? Of course!
We just have to keep getting up, and going on.

Children learn to walk by falling down - A LOT!
SO DO WE.

Jesus said we MUST become like Children if we are to expereince what he said was most important: spiritual reality: the Reign/Kingdom of God.
WE MUST FALL DOWN, a lot!
Jesus is for, not against that...

Those are some thoughts, K - I hope something here is helpful.

Jesus did not come to bring fear, but rather freedom IN God.
I hope you are enjoying your freedom more and more each day.


BTW - I am not a Pastor (thank God!!!! thank God!!!! thank God!!!!)
I have a ministry, supporting people to mature spiritually; continually opening ears to hear and eyes to see the reality of spirit, and follow God's unique leading for us, in our world.

Lastly - Jesus is reminding me to talk about this scripture, because in it Jesus is talking TO a sweet person who wants God, about the bratty people who block the way to God
(this is the best kick the religious facist's *ss chapter ; )

There is so much to learn here about what following Jesus Absolutely does not look-like - note the first paragraph of Matthew 23.


This is my perspective, YMMV,
Best to you, Wendy

Rock Your World with Master Jesus!


A few weeks ago, I got a call to a new focus in my ministry.
And then soon after, I had an opportunity to share this focus on a 1/2 hour radio show;
on a network that is spiritual, not Christian:

Rock Your World with Master Jesus!
Jesus Rocked his world, 2,000 years ago;
he ushered in a whole new vibration and a new paradigm of Divine Connection.

Jesus WAS Light, Way, Truth, Life in his world,
and he calls US to Do the Same…in our own way.

Let's tune into Jesus spiritually: receive his wisdom and insights for us, and most importantly his spiritual frequency -
So we can ROCK our life, and our world, today!  LISTEN

My calling is to speak with ALL about Jesus, not just Christians, and to do it BOLDLY from my own perspective and expereince.  May we all do the same!

Blessed Thanksgiving!
Wendy

The Lie of Success vs. the Truth of a Life Fulfilled

From a physical perspective:
We can never be rich enough, powerful enough, beautiful enough
to make us feel happy and safe, to believe we are good enough...

The way we are programmed around success in this culture is a Lie.

If we 'buy' all the information around what success IS and how we should go about it,
we are unlikely to end up happy, fulfilled.

If we actually get anywhere near the goals this world set for us,
we find out we have squandered our lives for fool's gold. 

The way to be happy,
to be truly successful,
to make a real difference in our world...

Is not to try to:
  • follow the herd, 
  • play small 
  • ACT big.
Certainly not to try to operate under all the lies we are told about:
  • who we are, 
  • what we should do and have, 
  • and how we should look, act and be.

The world doesn't need anymore widgets,
any more cookie-cutter people.
The world needs YOU.

This is why you are here!
If you don't do what you are here to do,
NO ONE CAN.

The secret to living fulfilled lives is to actually:
  • BE unique ourselves.
  • DO our unique calling/path/expression of us.
  • Shine our unique Light.
.
Sure fine, But HOW?

One of many ways to answer this:
Jesus outlined a relatively straightforward process...
If we want to be successful adults: well-fed, well-dresses, well-taken-care-of... then we:
seek ye first the reign of God and His righteousness, and all these shall be added to you.
- Matthew 6:33

Seek first the Kingdom (Reign) of Heaven =
  • Seek spiritual reality and operate from soul information.
  • Not from physical focus, pulls of the body/flesh and worldly rules, programming, expectations, limits...

and God's Righteousness =
  • Listening-to and Believing the Voice, the Leading of Spirit in our lives (Abraham believed God and it was reckoned to him as righteousness).
  • BEING in right relationship with our God, our Source, in alignment with Spirit, Light, Love, Truth, our spiritual information and our Way/Path...

And all the necessities of life come to us =
  • we are fulfilled, 
  • our needs are met, 
  • we are free from striving and worry, 
  • to go love and to serve the world!

This means:
  • BEING who we Really Are = a child in the royal family, a spark of the Divine in this world.
  • Reestablishing our free-will so we can Align with God and our Path.
  • DOING what we are actually called to DO by the Living God, who did not get laryngitis 2,000 years ago!

This means:
  • Going to our Source. Finding out who we are
  • Filling UP with Glory. Being healed and led on our Path.
  • And then going out to DO what ONLY WE CAN Uniquely DO in the world.

This is success beyond imagining, it is wealth beyond the dreams of avarice.
It is a Fulfilled Life, truly available to each and every one of us... Now.
Let's GO!

Blessings on Your Unique Journey,- Wendy
