To embrace any definition of God the world had to offer, or to believe in an idea of God that was arrived at by a religious entity or institution, required one to reject the Word of Jesus when it came to God’s revelation. Jesus said to be watchful and prepared for a time when God himself would reveal his true nature.
This piece is not so much about ‘yes’ or ‘no’, but about the truth of what has taken place beyond sides and proposals.Beyond the referendum itself there is much to learn about where Australia is at socially, culturally and politically.
‘One can look after themselves in a worldly manner by exploiting me. Or one can look after themselves in my eyes. The worldly path is the path of abuse. The Godly path is the path of conditional expression.' ~ the Word of God
Jesus was teaching us how to lead a life that was not abusive to God. No way was Jesus or God going to make understanding that message – a message God’s dignity and life depended on – a confusing or complex task.
He has always been speaking for himself - since the beginning of time. Our first lesson, when God handed over to us the keys to his life, was this – ‘Do not bite into the worldly knowledge that will be offered to you by the worldly princes. Should you do that, I will suffer.’
One of the great human sicknesses of our time is the individual desire - or need - of many to become someone special in the eyes of the world. And there is no greater abuse of God than to use and exploit him to make this 'dream' real.
The princes of the world offered God up on a platter and we went for it with a relentless and obsessive enthusiasm. Now, God takes sovereignty over all life because it’s his. Not yours. Not mine. And not anyone else’s. To be a child of the world – to cash in and profit from its abusive ways - is now formally considered a non-consensual life path.While being like Jesus is no longer religious hearsay and speculation.It is the way.The way to live a consensual life.
We were never given free choice by God - or Life - to create whatever lives we desired for ourselves. We could, but if those lives did not reflect the life and teachings of Jesus, or respect God's laws of consent, then our lives are considered by God to be an act of non-consensual abuse. Reality was never ours to do with as we pleased. It always belonged to God. God is 'the life'.
God wants us to embrace him. As he is. Not as we want him to be. And we cannot do that if we are filling our eyes, ears and hearts with the word of man when it comes to God. To embrace God, we must be one-eyed in our love for him.'
Australia's troubled past could be a gateway to love, rather than an obstacle. Life and and the sacred land we walk upon want us to be guided by love and united in oneness. (Extract taken from 'When Tears Fall on the Red Dirt', p 2-3, 2018)
Our world can be brutal to children. That sentence alone should be enough to make us have a long hard look at how we raise them and how we educate them. Not just in Australia. But everywhere. But despite the psychological carnage, school websites and the marketing information they release tells a different story to our children. Schools speak with flashy taglines. Children speak with anxiety, self-harm and suicide attempts. And we all know only one of the two voices I referred to here is of any substance.
Religions weaken and limit God's right to authority and sovereignty over his own life. They have greedily divided God among themselves, guaranteeing he would be kept at arms length from the abusive world we have created. Conditional expression is the way of life that honours God. It honours and acknowledges all God's direct messengers, but honours Jesus as the true living Word of God. the embodiment of what honouring God should look and feel like.
'When it comes to helping us measure our capacity for genuine love and compassion, our families are perfect. They show us who we really are. They will reveal if we are hateful, self-righteous or judgemental. Or if it is truly love we carry in our hearts.'
