Letter from Paul to the Ephesians, likely written from Rome during his AD 61-63 imprisonment. 
If we wish to have a better world, a more healthy, abundant, safer world in which to raise children; it’s imperative we understand material life on earth as spiritual warfare; a battle for our souls and ability to love each other fought in the space/time arena of good and evil.
Ephesians 6:10 – 6:20:
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints and for me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it i may speak boldly as I ought to speak”.

“What do we mean by the American Revolution?  The war?  That was no part of the Revolution;  it was only an effect and consequence of it.  The Revolution was in the minds of the people…a change in their religiousness sentiment.”  {John Adams}
(Editor’s Note)  If you do not understand the above quote by the 2nd President of the United States, please research the Lost Tribes of Israel along with The Great Awakening and Spirit of Independence.  What occurred in Philadelphia in 1776 and the bitter revolutionary war that followed were born in the pulpits and pews of the American colonies.  It was recognition of the Covenant extending back to Old Testament Hebrew times of Abraham – Isaac – Jacob (Israel) – and finally Joseph (Ephraim).  America is special – not for Americans – but for the world.  That singular specialness carries with it enormous spiritual responsibility that we ought not lose sight of;  and ought never stop defending;  because it is our American condition;  our American humanity;   our American nature;  and our American responsibility to the rest of the world.  The American Declaration of Independence is rooted in Natural Theology.  The American Constitution and Bill of Rights originated from attempted application of that same law as conventional or man-made law.  It was once blessed and now must be blessed again.
I took the following remark made by Marilyn Monroe from the front page of Mr. Jay Dyer’s incredible book: ESOTERIC HOLLYWOOD:  Sex Cults and Symbols in Film (Trine Day LLC, 2016).  I love Ms. Monroe’s erudite observation because for me, she effectively encapsulated the priceless, spiritual infinity we blindly give away, in exchange for nothing more than a cheap ego boost, maybe a few gaudy baubles and some worthless debt instrument paper we call money and seem to believe is wealth.  Thank you Ms. Monroe and Mr. Dyer for bringing this to our attention.

“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.  I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents.”  {The late Marilyn Monroe}

“You are given the gifts of the gods;
you create your reality
according to your beliefs.

Yours is the creative energy
that makes your world.

There are no limitations
to the self
except those you believe in.”
{Jane Roberts: The Nature of Personal Reality}


Wealth and abundance created by productive, hard working, creative America citizens has been sublimated and misappropriated (in part by our uninformed votes) to further the pathological power of our world’s dynastic families, their insipid Oligarchic global syndicate and pathetic New World Order totalitarian agenda.  The enormous debt immorally subsidizing our American lifestyle is a global syndicate weapon used to enslave the world and eventually ourselves.  It is time to THINK FOR OURSELVES and bravely say NO to this coercive, transhumanist agenda.

Many members of these dynastic, insatiably greedy, Plutocratic families are themselves, nothing more than wealthy, misguided, indentured slaves to their own autocratic blood lines, strong in their faithless belief in Malthusian scarcity, desperately requiring our Main Street prayers, thoughts, courage and assistance necessary to free them from the evil yoke of nobility now submerging their privileged lives in the materialistic muck of wrongly entitled nihilism.  Freeing these poor souls garners our own children’s perpetual freedom.  We don’t need hate, cowardice and envy.  We need individual, freely chosen love, courage and generosity to win freedom and abundance, our unalienable rights, for everyone.
I believe the key to spiritual growth, empathy and ability to receive and give love, our human telos,  is recognition of Divinely created human person-hood and the realization that our individual person-hood only has meaning within the context of our freely chosen relationship with other persons including the Holy Trinity.   Without getting into it too deeply, the Orthodox Study bible tells us:
“The Holy Trinity is revealed both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament.  In the Old Testament, the Trinity is revealed in subtle ways; in the New Testament, the Trinity is revealed fully and plainly, beginning at the Baptism of our Lord.

The Holy trinity is one God in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  These persons are distinct, but not separate, and are not three gods.  They are One God because They are one in essence or nature.  The Father is the unbegotten Fountainhead of Deity.  The Son is eternally begotten of the Father (Jn 1:18; 3:16; 16:28).  The Holy Spirit is the Helper (Jn 14:16) and Spirit of Truth (Jn 14:17; 16:13), Who proceeds from the Father (Jn 15:26).”

Human beings are created persons, though human created essence is distinct from that of Christ, who as the Father’s begotten Son, shares the same essence as the Father and Holy Spirit.  Genesis 1:26 tells us:  “Then God said, ‘let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness’.”  I certainly don’t pretend to know or understand more than any of us can as finite created creatures, but I don’t imagine made in Our image and Likeness suggesting physical features.  The Holy Trinity consists of the unbegotten (uncreated) Father, begotten Son who became man and the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father, the three of Whom together created all of creation.

The gift peculiar to human beings, differentiating humans from other life forms is conscious awareness of self and others, male and female, in space and time and the ability to engage freely chosen creative thought and action within the context of coherent virtues such as faith, hope, charity, empathy, compassion, generosity, love and so forth; or to freely choose a less virtuous path as did Lucifer, the fallen angels, Adam and Eve.  Through the incarnated Son, the Trinity occupies all planes of existence and in fact, transcends existence.  Created humans don’t transcend existence, but occupy both the spiritual and material planes of existence, in limited similarity to the Trinity, hence made in the image and likeness of.

To the extent we as humans allow our physical selves to become bifurcated from our spiritual selves, we lose touch with who we are and why are.  Our gifts of imagination and creative power are lost and become useless in the same way a car without fuel goes nowhere regardless how many times or how hard we press on the accelerator.  It doesn’t matter why or how we lost conscious awareness of the totality of our own created human nature.  We can choose wrongly, be conditioned, coerced, entrained, etc.  As a practical matter this loss of spiritual awareness weakens us and robs us of our birthright.  Any attempt by anyone or anything to bifurcate a person or persons from their spiritual/material reality impedes those person’s free choice and inhibits their creative human gifts, which is pure evil and always Luciferian at its root.

It is within the above context I suggest the Oligarchic global syndicate, its shadow government(s) and deep state operatives are evilly motivated by Luciferian influence and are in desperate need of our Main Street prayers.  If there are other explanations for the dystopian cesspool of hatred and destruction we have been and are metastasizing our beautiful world into; I can’t see it.  Until we each square away our individual spiritual awareness and begin to make responsible choices; our political, economic, societal and cultural issues cannot be resolved and our children will inherit the mess we’ve left.  Let’s work together to educate and strengthen ourselves and each other spiritually so we are better armed and weaponized to resist and fight evil forces and bring about a spiritually healthy world of abundant freedom for everyone and everything.

Matthew 17: 14 – 21     The Possessed Boy.  {Taken from the New American Bible; Red Letter Edition, 1976.}

As they approached the crowd, a man came up to him and knelt before him.  “Lord”, he said, “take pity on my son, who is demented and in a serious condition.  For example, he often falls into the fire and frequently into the water.  I have brought him to your disciples but they could not cure him.”  In reply Jesus said:  “What an unbelieving and perverse lot you are!  How long must I remain with you?  How long can I endure you?  Bring him here to me!”

Then Jesus reprimanded him, and the demon came out of him.  That very moment the boy was cured.

The disciples approached Jesus at that point and asked him privately, “Why could we not expel it?”

“Because you have so little trust,” he told them.  “I assure you, if you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you would be able to say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it would move.  Nothing would be impossible for you.  [This kind does not leave but by prayer and fasting.]”

I believe the Bible to be dynamically revelatory teachings inspired by Divine Providence.  It is one of our user manuals for human life and Natural Law including The Law of Attraction, which is The Law of Love.  It reveals spiritual truth to spiritual creatures as they are prepared to receive and understand it.  Dynamic because as the living Word of Creative Infinity, a particular verse or teaching may mean one thing at one point in our lives, yet reveal more at another time, always without contradiction.  The Word is never static and rarely means only one  thing on one simple spiritual level.  My beautiful wife refers to this as God’s Economy.  Please remember this inspiration originates in Infinity and is not limited by us or our present ability to understand.  Also, please consider that life itself is unbounded and without limit as part of Divine Providence, that is, Infinity.  LIFE BEGETS MORE LIFE.  LOVE BEGETS MORE LOVE.

I particularly like Matthew 17 above because it teaches several things in a very simple way.  First of all, as usual, Jesus isn’t speaking here about himself.  He is talking to his disciples about us – all humans.  He is explaining that we have, as humans, a direct spiritual connection to our Creator;  and if we could but understand our own Divinity within, our own  nature, we would then appreciate the incredible creative power we each possess as a unique, individual, manifestation and EXPRESSION of the Infinite.  This realization, however, requires belief or faith, the courage to act and commitment to our objective – or the creative power is not activated.  Life and creative power require choices, firm commitment and focused action.  Only chaos, evil and hatred are automatic as they are of themselves – nothing.  Energy must always be expended to overcome chaos with love and understanding.

Jesus also goes on to explain at the very end, almost offhandedly, that to more fully develop our spiritual powers and to be able to manifest a bit of infinite spiritual power in reality; effort and seeking on our part through prayer (meditation) and fasting are required.  Since we have free will, we must knock for the door to be opened.  We must ask in order to receive.  We cannot learn if we don’t seek.  We cannot receive if we are not prepared to receive.  Responsible choices accompanied by right thinking and appropriate action are paramount to success.  As Russell Simmons noted in DO YOU“You cannot fail if you don’t quit”.

Infinity (GOD) is nothing more than LOVE existing as an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent intelligent energy capable of transformation from energy to matter to energy (remember Einstein’s E = MC?) and back again.  The most powerful universal law, or Natural Law is The Law of Attraction, which is the Law of Love.

We literally are what we think.  What we think about manifests in reality.  All creation originates in thought.  As children of God, created in His image and likeness, we share within our human nature, the ability to think and therefore to create.  Unfortunately, as Jesus mentions in Matthew 17, we often have insufficient faith to realize our own power;  our own spiritually creative gift.  We mistakenly view ourselves as victims much of the time, which is unfortunate.  If we believe we are a victim; that victim-hood manifests in reality and our creative power is blocked.  We shouldn’t do this to ourselves.  The Infinite Power of the Universe never does anything to us or for us;  it always works through us.  We are never victims other than by our own choice and belief.

The Bible is a user manual for The Law of Love or The Law of Attraction.  It provides teachings regarding the incredible results and generosity obtained through positive thinking.  It also portrays the horrors which are brought about through negative thinking.  Sin is just negative thinking and acting out.  Our thoughts lead to words and actions; then the manifestation in reality of that which we are thinking about.  To deny this power is an error in judgement and a sure road to chaos.

For example;  given the above line of thought;  what is the end result in our  world of a mother thinking positive loving thoughts of bringing her wonderful child into the world versus her negative thought of murdering that child?  These different thoughts are real, manifest themselves in reality and have consequences for every living being.  What kind of world do we wish to live in?  Our own individual thoughts added together create that world – so it is imperative to think carefully.

What is the end result in the world of our positive thinking as individuals regarding our belief that we will help our neighbors, even at our own expense because we each have a responsibility to each other as humans to love:  versus giving all responsibility over to a socialist government, which tramples our free will and absolves us of all individual responsibility and action?

If and when we consider our lives in light of our spiritual nature, our soul, our bit of Divine Infinity, if you will;  then we can see that negative thinking along the lines of abortion or socialism are a denial of responsible life and are spiritually devastating.  This is why socialism always has an unhealthy outcome.  Socialism has resulted in the brutal enslavement, starvation, torture and murder of hundreds of millions of people across the globe and yet, we have people stubbornly insisting it can somehow have a successful outcome if we just try it one more time.  It is frankly impossible for a socioeconomic system anathema to free life itself, in denial of human nature to ever have a positive outcome for humans.  Recorded, unredacted history is undeniable proof of this.

Free market capitalism provides an environment embracing human nature, free will and abundant life.  Capitalism has flaws in so far as we ourselves have difficulty as humans in recognizing and accepting individual responsibility for our own thoughts, choices and actions.  We cause our own problems by thinking and acting wrongly.  Yet capitalism holds within its grasp the possibility of human spiritual growth, unbounded life and nurtures our search for excellence.  No other socioeconomic system yet devised by humans accomplishes this;  has created a free society overflowing with equal opportunity or has raised the standard of living for so many; even in the face of recognized abuses by some.

Capitalism is anarchy with rules and allows for unlimited life, unlimited choices, unlimited creativity and unlimited generosity.  Free markets must be treasured and protected from the ignorant who under the guise of protection, would imprison life, restrict choices and thereby strangle freedom and our natural ability to grow without limit as intended by Divine Providence.  Government protected, monopoly capitalism, which is Fascism, not capitalism at all, should never be considered anything more than a twisted sister of socialism – just another form of collectivism strangling individual creativity and freedom; transferring hard earned wealth to the Oligarchy, thereby enslaving us under the mindless yoke of feudalism.  Collectivism’s sole purpose is eliminating the inconvenient MIDDLE CLASS leaving only the Elite, their privileged Ruling Class pawns and Main Street serfs.

We ought never to consider Marxist Collectivism in any form or by any name as an academic exercise.  The unavoidable, very real consequences of Fascist/Socialist thought, which is pure materialism are spiritual devastation, destruction of both personal responsibility and choice, constriction of life itself, confusion and isolation from our unalienable gift of creative power- which ends in hopeless human despair, violence or both.

As stated once by someone (not sure who) much smarter than myself, “Violence is the last alternative to impotence.”  Collectivism in any form always enables spiritual devastation, leading directly to chaotic impotence and finally to violence, whether physical, emotional or intellectual.
