December 15-DO YOU FAIL TO READ DIRECTIONS?

December 15-DO YOU FAIL TO READ DIRECTIONS? When you try to put something together, and fail to read the directions finding yourself doing it over again because one part is left out. I can’t find my way. I ask directions where to go. The ego thoughts that Edge God Out always wants to do things its own way instead of following the pattern of the directions of God. God leads us into the creative pattern of who and what we are. The pattern is to Love God and our neighbor as ourselves. We think we are justified in thinking to hurt others or to kill the Christ in another person. God is constantly knocking at our door to come in. When we Let God in, God takes us into another dimension of Spirit instead of human thinking. We say, “I have plenty of time to receive God today. I AM so busy and have no time for God. I know it all and I AM God and want my own way.” When we change our thinking, we change our lives. Know you are a Spirit Being instead of a human Beings. Be Godlike in everything you do and say. There is a pattern to follow in everything we do. Let us follow and let God flow through us.

December 14-DID YOU EVER WRESTLE WITH AN ANGEL?

December 14-DID YOU EVER WRESTLE WITH AN ANGEL? The word angel means messenger. We have a tendency to doubt when we receive a new Truth if this came from God or somewhere else. So, we wrestle with this angel messenger until the message is heart knowledge instead of just head knowledge. God is all there is. Nothing happens by accident or by change. God is in control of my life. My name change is Princess with God. God brings everything to Good and everything is going to be All Right. Jacob’s name was changed from liar, thief to Israel Prince with God. His hip was out of place to walk in the Spirit Realm instead of the physical realm. Mary wrestled with an angel when she was told that she was going to have a virgin birth to conceive the Christ. “I know no man made religion, doctrines, beliefs and so on.” She knew that her wrestling was over that MY SOUL MAGNIFIED THE LORD. A soul changed from “me””my’ and “i”from my will to the will of God, my mind to the Mind of Christ and my emotions changed to one emotion of Love Unconditional. God is in me for ever.

December 13-THERE IS NO ORDER OF DIFFICULTIES IN MIRACLES

December 13-THERE IS NO ORDER OF DIFFICULTIES IN MIRACLES. A miracle is a change of perception. A miracle is a correction. It does not create, nor really change at all. It merely looks at devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false. It undoes error. A miracle inverts perception(what we think we see) which was upside down before to open to truth. One miracle is not harder than another. They are all the same. Miracles  are expression of Love. Miracles are healing. Miracles are thoughts. Miracles witness to the Truth. Miracles transcend the body to BE the Spirit body. Miracles make us One with God. Miracles awaken the fact we are Spirit Beings. Miracles rearrange perception. Miracles praise God through you. Miracles are examples of right thinking. Miracles dissolve error that is false or unreal. Miracles are inner awareness of Christ in us, and the acceptance of His atonement (at one ment). Miracles bring us to creation to tell us who we are and why we are here. You deserve miracles. You are a miracle every time you heal another persons false thinking to think only God thoughts.

December 12-WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE TRANSFIGURED?

December 12-WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE TRANSFIGURED? A baby goes from one form to another without death. It is a baby, teen, adult and so on and never leaves a physical body behind in death. The form is transfiguring all of its life. We already have a Spirit Body. Christ Jesus transfigured before his three disciples and His Spirit body shone like the sun and was full of light. You have God only. You have an aura around your body small compared when you knew you were a Spirit Being with Light all around you. Our physical body was made of dust human thinking to re-member our body is Spirit created by God. This Spirit body can go though wall, walk on water, heal the sick, and travel all over with thought. Re-member this body of light was so bright that it blinded us from human thinking whoever was in contact with it. Moses had to put a veil on his face. We are blinded to human thinking. We use this human body to reveal the Invisible God to a world that is vision. We are the Light of the world to delete the darkness of human thinking to a world that is Instead of God.

December 11-MY OWN MIND TRIES TO DESTROY MY IDENTITY

December 11-MY OWN MIND TRIES TO DESTROY MY IDENTITY. The carnal mind is not God. This mind tries to destroy you with sin, sickness, pain, suffering, death and on and on. Christ Jesus healed their mind. Take up your bed and walk. Not one person God healed said, “I can’t.”We are Royal Children of God that cannot loose our Identity as Spirit Beings living in a Spiritual world. On the cross Christ Jesus took away sin-archery term meaning we missed the mark of who and what we are, sickness, pain, suffering and even death and gave us the Mind of Christ. It is finished and the Resurrection brought us back to God where we came from in our thinking. How could we possibly believe that God would leave us or forsake us when God is in us and As us. How could we believe that God would punish his children that human thinking taught us. God is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. God said, “I give you everything, the Kingdom Is within you.” We are the ones who partook of a world of good and evil when we were with God always. What if there was something other than God? God will never leave me or forsake me only in my human carnal mind would I think such a foolish thing. We change our human thinking that is death and Be alive to the Living Christ

December 10-ANGER IS NOT A SPIRIT EMOTION

 December 10-ANGER IS NOT A SPIRIT EMOTION. When you are angry, you are not choosing peace. Anger is a human emotion that causes your body pain and suffering. On the cross Christ Jesus took away all human emotions and gave us One emotion of Unconditional Love. Spirit produces everything, nourishes everything, and maintains every thing. Being all that is cannot have anything outside of it. “Be thou perfect and Divine is everything.” The Spirit sets us free from all human emotions if we are willing to change our thinking to the thinking of God only. Stop when you feel you are angry and meditate on everything Christ Jesus would do. Our emotions are powerful whether we believe it or not. There is enough anger and hatred in this world that is Instead of Christ that we do not need to add to it. Anger is the first person you harm is yourself. We do not need to stress our physical body because this body is to manifest the Invisible Living God to a world that does not know anything about God. What a privilege to Be the Light of those in darkness in their human minds to have the Light of Understanding.

December 9-TEMPTATION

December 9-TEMPTATION. Means to entice; provoke. Temptation is real only if you give it power. An alcoholic is tempted to drink, it is not real until he partakes in the act of drinking again. God can only do away from temptation. If you try it yourself, you will not be able to overcome it. Christ Jesus was tempted in every area, but did not sin (Archery term meaning missing the mark of who you are). He was tempted by the ego thoughts recorded three times. One was to change stones into bread. “Man shall not live by physical food, but every word of God in the Spirit realm.” Another was to own all the worldly kingdoms of human thoughts and behavior, and to bow down to human rituals, man made ideas as if it were God’s thinking. Man shall not worship any idols because God is all there is. Christ Jesus said, “I AM the Bread of Life. If anyone eats this bread of the Spirit will not see death. All temptations can be victory if we let God flow through us. “If God Be in you, who could Be against you?” “I will give you Living Water that you will never thirst of human thinking again.”

December 8-MARRIAGE FEAST OF THE LAMB

 December 8-MARRIAGE FEAST OF THE LAMB. In a wedding the Bride has much preparation. Finding a pure white dress, flowers and so on. Preparation for Union with inner revelation union with Christ  Garment represents the Body of Christ.  On the 3rd day Resurrection, Christ performed the first miracle changing water (substance of being until Spirit is formed in us and then a River of water flowing out of me to make the blind to see and the lame to walk). Wine symbolizes vitality of connecting link of soul changed from my mind, my will, my intellect to the Mind of Christ, the Will of God only and one emotion of Love. The mother or Holy Spirit asked the Christ to change the water into wine because there was a lack of Spiritual Truth. The word Feast means holding of Divine Potential or the outer symbol to represent the Spirit Realm. Marriage feast results in man united with Spirit of God to be One with God and One with each other. We are the lambs, and we are the Bride of Christ. Man then is Spirit eating of the Heavenly Manna-What is it? What do you want me to do today? We then thirst after the Spirit of Truth instead of man’s laws and rules to immortality life without death. Lamb represents purity of life and substance of Being life of God.

December 7-YOU ARE GOD’S MOUTH PIECE

December 7-YOU ARE GOD’S MOUTH PIECE. You are used by God to communicate with humanity to tell the world about a Loving God. Your tongue is used to speak about God Being in you to never leave you or forsake you. You know it is not “i” “me” or “my” words that speak. Christ speaks, walks, breathes and so forth though us. The world was subject to vanity not willing. The world is moaning and groaning for the manifestation of the sons and daughters to bring the manifestation of the body’s redemption. We are going to change everything when we know who we are and why we are here. “You are heirs of God and Joint Heirs in Christ.” We are a chosen generation and a Royal Priesthood. You are the Prince and Princess of the King and Queen. We can tell the world who they are Royalty. The thoughts of God only can be changed  to a world that does everything Instead of God.You are God’s mouth piece and a Spirit Being living in a Spirit world.

December 5-CHANGING MISTAKES TO VICTORY

December 5-CHANGING MISTAKES TO VICTORY. 2 Cor. 6:14-“For what fellowship has righteous with unrighteousness, and what communion has light (understanding) with darkness (negative carnal human thoughts of doom and gloom)?” Can we see good in everyone because the seed of God is within them when they do not know this Truth? I can refuse to accept anything that is not good (God) from coming into my experience. God does not create and support evil, but we do with our carnal human beliefs and rituals. We do not have failures because we have another chance to make things right. There is no guilt or condemnation in our lives. Erasers on pencils are there to correct our mistakes. We are Spirit Beings with a human material form instead of a Spirit Body. I AM Health, Happiness, Love and Joy because this is what I choose. God is in the center of my life. I give no person or situations the power to take away my joy because I Am Love, Peace and Joy. I can change by life by changing my thoughts and renewing my mind to the Mind of Christ that is already there. No guilt or condemnation exist.

December 4-GREATEST GIFT

December 4-GREATEST GIFT. The greatest gift from God is that God extended Him-self into all of us with Unconditional Love because God is Love. Romans 8:36-“Who shall separate us from the Love of God.?” Do you Love yourself or do you criticize yourself by saying, “I AM not smart, pretty, good enough and the list goes on.? You make criticisms about yourself, you are mocking God’s Perfect Creation and killing the Christ of your Being. The power that is given to us is not to manipulate -manage unfairly or dishonesty or to dominate others by force to make a point of your belief to control others beliefs. We allow God to work through us and As us. Love is the key ingredient for a happy life. Everything is a pattern after the Heavens. It is time to reveal the Unknown Mother God that is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives us Unconditional Love. “Genesis 1:27-Let Us make man in our image (reflection in a mirror and likeness (exact copy of man in Our image both male and female.” The Holy Spirit is our Comforter, voice of God, gap between man and God, teacher, still small voice inside of us and so on.

December 3-RECHARGE YOUR BATTERY FOR GOD

December 3-RECHARGE YOUR BATTERY FOR GOD. A battery is cells that provide electric current. Our battery is our Life Source in God only. Each day we must charge our battery like you do with a cell phone. If the battery is low lacking Spiritual Food for the day, you will miss out how to hear from a Living God who is in control of our lives. I want my battery charged each second so I can’t miss what the Holy Spirit is speaking to me directly according to my plan and purpose. Some of us have batteries that don’t work any more because it lacks a new battery which means to be Born Again into the Spirit Realm which is already there, but we forgot we are Spirit Beings thinking we are just human beings living in a Spiritual world.This world of Spirit has no pain, suffering, dis-ease, or anything that we forgot that Christ Jesus took away at the cross and brought us Resurrection and said “It is finished.” At the cross Christ completely took away any human thoughts of horror and death, and gave us the Mind of Christ. Think about this very carefully when you are in pain. It no longer exist.

December 2-CHANGE YOUR NAME TO CHANGE YOUR NATURE

December 2-CHANGE YOUR NAME TO CHANGE YOUR NATURE. Everyone who ever had a experience with the Living God had a name change because their nature was changed. Jacob’s name was changed from Jacob meaning heel catcher, liar in wait, supplanter, leaving behind to Israel Prince with God. Saul name was changed from asked for; desired; demanded; wished who was going to kill the Christ in each person because of his zealous in his search for God, but filled with the religious desires and ideas being taught to his previous training that he resisted the true Christ understanding. His name was changed to Paul meaning restrained; reduced; made small, little. He was arrogant, self ego, and all the traits of human thinking. Paul represents the Word of the Spirit of Truth. He was blinded by human teaching to know who and what he is. Christ Jesus taught us our new nature which is Christ. Our name is changed to I AM. We are the Prince and Princess of God. Peter’s name changed to little rock instead of unyielding, large rock.

Spiritual SIDE OF THE CLOSING CEREMONY OF THE OLYMPICS BY Linda Cosentino

 

SPIRITUAL SIDE OF THE CLOSING CEREMONY OF THE OLYMPICS by Linda Cosentino

The opening ceremony had a Light of harmony and solidarity uniting every one in the Spirit of Solidarity (firm unity). Ninety two nations participated in the Olympics.  Nine meaning conclusion of a matter or finality.  Two is short of the Trinity meaning three persons in One God including the sons and daughter of God as one person. Two also means witness to reality. The lighting of the Pagoda means the house of secret relics who are the children of God in the Secret Place of the Most High God with the Prayer Pagoda which unites every one in the Spirit of harmony.

I think the whole idea of the Olympics is to bring us unity with each other all over the world and to get together even in competition to learn to get along with each other and to Love each other.  North Korea and South Korea got together as one team and one flag meaning One with each other instead of war. The United States of America had 23 total metals.  The number 23 means a message of the greatest urgency; a number signifying the end or completion; a command to go or move away (war and rumors of war). Nine gold metals. Gold always signifies God or Deity.  The number nine means special properties and powers which are found in no other number. It makes the end of the conclusion of a matter; It is a number of finality or judgment (turning point). Eight Silver metals. Eight is the number of New Beginnings and Silver means Redemption. Six bronze metals meaning six is the number of imperfection or the human thinking or human behavior without Christ or God coming short of seven meaning perfection. Six is number of man’s labor doing things by self instead of God’s rest. Bronze is a mixture of copper and tin, and always refers to the third place winner. Copper has to do with the planet Venus-The Goddess of Love meaning balance and harmony. Tin is associated with Jupiter meaning cultivation of Spiritual side expansion.

The Closing ceremony came first the Queen representing our Mother God Being recognized. Then came the musical instruments called Geomungo a unique an ancient instrument with the round part representing the sky and the flat part is the earth. Kingdom of God as in heaven Spirit) as on earth.  Then came a field of lighted Dandelions meaning faithfulness; happiness; Love.  The turtle remembers those who have passed and are in the Cloud of Witnesses. The turtle embarks on a journey across life and death in the middle of the procession holding the Dandelions. The Turtle means long life passes through the tunnel to express new changes by pushing boundaries and new records. The city in Revelations is all of the sons and daughters are the city to be a point for a new start.

Drones flying together made a bear who is symbol China who is the next Olympic host. Then the drones formed a heart meaning flags of brotherhood shines like the sun with Love, Unity and Good fortune. The five children return with a snow globe meaning the Light of God in each person.  The snowflakes extinguish the artificial light to the Light of God with white balloons of white lights and the White Tiger is like the Lion who is King. The King is God who gives us peace and a new beginning with Christ as the Head.

SPIRITUAL SIDE OF THE OPENING CEREMONY OF THE OLYMPICS BY Linda Cosentino

SPIRITUAL SIDE OF THE OPENING CEREMONY OF THE OLYMPICS by Linda Cosentino. First of all North Korea and South Korea united as one team. They said every thing is from One Energy. North Korea representative was his sister. The U. S. A. was the presence of our Vice President, Mike Pence and his wife. The tiger had 12 men under it to motive it. Twelve is the number of Divine Government. The tiger reached out to touch the 5 children from North and South Korea. Five is the number of Grace the blessings of God. In the bible the Lion and the Lamb lie down together in peace with each other. The children were not afraid of the tiger and the tiger did not hurt them. The next thing I noticed was two doves. Doves always represent the Mother God who gives us Divine Unconditional Love. The two doves united together meaning the Father God our Creator and the Mother God’s Love. Next the doves became the Eagle. The eagle soars high in the Spirit Realm and no birds can ever reach it. The crow who represents the ego thoughts that Edge God Out in our own minds cannot reach the Eagle. God calls us Eagle Saints. The torch of Light was first lit by North Korea and given to South Korea and then to 300,00 people meaning that We are the Light of the world. Where does the darkness of negative thinking go when the Light is turned on? It disappears because it was never there only in our own minds. This was the example to Peace and the Kingdom of God coming to the earth as in heaven.

MECHANISM

MECHANISM
At this writing I am 77 years of age.I recently had to go for my annual physical checkup. In the days before, I was seeking the Spirit as to why we must go thru this earthy experience with a body that sooner or later will fail us. If we take a few steps back and look at the really BIG PICTURE why is this universe of continuous life and death struggles necessary. Even the apostle Paul cried out for the redemption of his body.
In the style that has happened in my life before, I heard the word “MECHANISM”. As has also happened before, a flood of thoughts came with this single word. I see that this is part of the process of God making man in HIS image. This is a very competitive world in which we believe that we must struggle to get ours. How would it work out if we all could call matter into existence as Jesus did. So many of us have strong egos and I am sure this would quickly get out of hand.
God created everything out of HIMSELF.  When we learn to create, it will be from our inner most being where God is. This is why we experience this life and death world. Remember, even angels wonder and long to look into the mysteries of this world. In this world as in the next, there is no substitute for experience.
This mortal body is simply part of the “MECHANISM.” God has chosen to prepare us for the non competitive world of the Kingdom. May the lessons of this lifetime serve us well and may we enter the Kingdom prepared to serve and create as God would have us.

THE BELIEF IN LIES BY RICHARD COSENTINO

The story of Adam and Eve demonstrates how our minds are eager to believe a lie. I think the human mind has an inherent serious flaw that makes it grab on to lies to the point of  being ridiculous. Especially when it come to killing other men in the name of god.
Through my long working career, I had the pleasure of working with mostly honest,”what you see is what you get”, types of people. However there was always a few much better at saying what they could do as opposed to actually doing it. Some were very good at painting pictures in the minds of others with mere words. These false pictures would be believed even after strong evidence was presented to the contrary.
I spent long hours trying to understand how some people were so successful at doing this, forming these lies and having the lies work for them for years. Then a term called “Conversational Hypnosis” was brought to my attention. All of a sudden I realized the human mind does have a serious flaw just like I have said for many years. I present this information not to hate those that have the ability to secretly impose their will on others, but for a better cause. We need to understand the weakness and vulnerability of our own mind. How easily we believe the lies of this world even after some of us have had wonderful experiences and visions and have seen into the future thing that surely came to pass.
The point is we must train our minds to push aside the lies about this physical world and learn to center on the Spirit, and live every day in peace, honestly seeking true understanding.
The Bible states that when Jesus died on the cross the veil in the temple was rent (torn).This was great symbolism but the temple in Jerusalem is long gone. It is the veil in our human brain that still physically exists. This is the veil we must pierce while yet in this body to move into the realm of the Spirit. By Richard Cosentino

Deep Well of Emotions by Richard Cosentino

Some have said that Jesus healed the sick and raised the dead with His emotions. This caused all of the loose marbles in my logical mind to bounce around in disarray.
I would never trust human emotion. The first emotions to jump up in everyday life is envy and jealously. Even if we purpose to control these base emotions they forever lurk beneath the
surface.
So what would the emotions of Jesus have to do with accomplishing the supernatural in this dense, fixed, present arrangement of things???
Suppose Jesus took a certain path or tarried on His way to certain events to accomplish one simple but all important arrangement. To bring his human emotions into subjection of the Spirit!!!
Remember the double minded man receives nothing from God. If we are to play and part in ushering in the Kingdom of God on this earth we must accomplish this also.
We must train our emotions to flow with the Spirit so that it does not become second nature but our only nature.
May we all do great and wondrous things,
Richie and Linda

Richard’s Writing

There was a man I once worked with when we were both young. I recently heard an old song that reminded me of him.I changed jobs and I had not seen him for years.One day a friend told me that this man’s wife had died and I thought “how sad ” for we were still considered young. The friend also told me that this man stood over his wife’s grave and shot himself.

Of course many would say ” he went straight to hell”. “Why that’s even against the law, a cowardly act”. But that was far from what I thought when I first heard the news all those years ago. My thoughts were that there was determination and a measure of bravery in his actions. He loved this woman and would pass thru death to find her again. Few women who have ever lived in this world have been loved with such intensity.

So all these years later as this song called him to my remembrance I still feel the same way about it, except even more so. As for as judgment, which we as humans are so very good at, I have suspended it between heaven and earth in the realm of the soul.

Even the Bible, which is too often used to beat us down, states “do not judge a thing until the end”. My judgment will remain suspended until the end. My hope is that yours will be also.

Thoughtfully,
Richie

The Fullness of Time 1st Series by Richard Cosentino

The Fullness of Time

First in a series by Richard Cosentino

 “When the fullness if time had come God sent fourth His Son”. How can we begin to understand that time as it is experienced on this planet and it’s very temporal existence, fits into the plan of God.

Our perception of the world is formed by our life’s experience. Our perception of God is formed by our religious and spiritual experience. As I have stated before, I did not seek God, He sought after me. After reading the entire bible and listening to a variety of preaching while parading through several churches, I concluded there were two major unanswered questions. Jesus is coming back. Just what does that mean? The second question involves the salvation of man. What is our part, and what is God’s part?

In this series let’s look into the second question. Do we even understand what salvation is? If it is not being saved from eternal punishment in a torture chamber, then what exactly is salvation really? Getting past all of the Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic words, lets say it is self awareness or the ability to know ourselves and have an individual identity beyond physical death. This I believe is the root cause of the physical universe problem. This is what caused Paul to cry out  “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection”.

I went to sea as a young man and had to stand lookout on the bow of the ship at night. On a clear night with no moon the star light was bright enough to not need a flashlight to walk the deck. The sky was packed with stars it seemed with no empty spot for another. I decided in the midst of this awesome sight,  there must be life throughout this vast universe. Part of the resistance to believing in life on other planets is the notion that Jesus would have to suffer and die on every one of them to appease God on behalf of the local population. Of course, belief in a blood sacrifice is a typical and common pagan practice. Let’s hope we have come to realize that Jesus went to the cross to show a path past physical death. Our belief in an angry and vengeful God can never make it so. Remember Jesus told the religious establishment of His day, “You don’t know God”.

In ancient times the earth was thought to be the center of the entire universe. In the present we know it is not the center of anything in the cosmos. So then what is so important about time as it is experienced on this planet. Let’s consider that no matter what we believe, this is not the real world. Our five senses only paint a partial image in our brain.

The prophet Isaiah in the midst of a lengthy forecast of God pouring out His wrath, stated in verse 34:4, “God will roll up the heavens like a scroll”. In a moment of spiritual connection I saw that the universe is not as vast as it appears to us. It is like a round room filled with narrow vertical mirrors and standing in the middle of the room, we are surrounded by multiple images, but we know, we are alone.
