January 19-YOU HAVE BEEN BUMPED BY ANOTHER VEHICLE

January 19-YOU HAVE BEEN BUMPED BY ANOTHER VEHICLE. A vehicle could be your body, a car to take you around, a home for you to live in, and a means of conveying to You the Truth of your Being. Has another person’s vehicle been hitting you in the back, so you could turn around and remember who and why you are here. This person is trying to bump you to awaken from your amnesia to your True Identity as a Child of God. This bump never is to hurt you, but just a tap to cause you to think differently. This vehicle is the Christ of your Being waiting patiently for you to surrender your little self and become alive to your Real Self of the Christ in you and As you. The human mind is so filled with lies that you can do everything by yourself, and you do not need God. We are a Child of God in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation among whom you shine as lights in the darkened world.

January 18-FACT OR FICTION

January 18-FACT OR FICTION.  Fact is the Truth of God.  You are a Spirit Being having human experiences.  You are created in the image (reflection in a mirror) and likeness (exact copy) of God both male and female.  You are an individual expression of God.  You are beautiful, talented, healthy, Unconditional Love, abundantly supplied, and  Loved.  Let Christ control your life.  Fiction is something in our imagination that is not real.  We believe we are physical beings instead of Spirit Beings.  We are duped to believe we are mortal beings living by the demands and control of the human flesh desires instead of Being immortal and Living forever.  Fiction is all the beliefs given us by the ego thoughts in our own minds that Edge God Out, and believe a lie instead of the truth.

January 17-HOW VALUABLE IS THE TONGUE?

January 17-HOW VALUABLE IS THE TONGUE? To praise and thank God; swallowing food, speech organ, talking and so on. “Life and death is in the power of the tongue.” You can cause a person to be raised up or destroyed. It is best to walk away from any argument that will not have any value. Christ is in you and As you. The tongue can be evil or a heavenly word; stirs up hate, fears or uplifting people in Truth, power of Good instead of evil. It is not important to be right or win a discussion. I would rather choose peace instead of fighting. Overlook ones faults and see beauty only. I must think before reacting to a mean statement that has no value. Is it wonderful to know that you have a Living God who lives in you and will never leave you or forsake you?

January 16-IS GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE?

January 16-IS GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE? We need to communicate with God first in the morning. In the song, “He walks with me and He talks with me, And He tells me I AM HIS OWN; And the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has even known. I come to the garden (spirit realm) ALONE while the dew is still on the roses, And the voice I hear, and the sound of His voice, is so sweet and the melody that He gave to me within my heart is ringing.” Whatever words could be more powerful. We have things to do in our lives each day, but when we have this special time with God first and last of the day, our lives will be filled with so much Love that we will be Loving everything in sight. What a wonderful feeling that God loves me and I AM VERY SPECIAL. I have come to real-eyes that nothing is important in my life, but God only. Everything else will fall in place.

January 15-DO YOU HAVE A THORN IN YOUR FLESH?

January 15-DO YOU HAVE A THORN IN YOUR FLESH? Do you have something in your life that you prayed for over and over again and your prayers are not answered? There was a man that laid at the pool for 38 years and Christ Jesus told him to pick up your bed and walk. He was healed, but he always had to reminder how great God was to heal him with the bed he carried. “My Grace is sufficient.” Will you know that God is in control of your life no matter what appears to seem to be a hindrance. God has a reason for the thorn. There is a purpose for thorns for defense of other animals eating the plant. The thorns are our protection from people hurting us. We are to praise God any way in good times and in bad.

January 14-CASR DOWN VAIN IMAGINATIONS

January 14-CAST DOWN VAIN IMAGINATIONS.  The word imagine means to conceive in your mind.  Vain means worthless thoughts.  We can use our imagination for good when we have faith to believe something great is going to happen, that is not seen as yet.  We cast down all arguments, wars, depression, pain and suffering and every negative thought that temps us to create negative human situations.  When we worry, we are not letting the Christ take over our lives to create the most beautiful situations.  Fear is false evidence APPEARING REAL.  Words of encouragement creates a person’s worth for this day.  Criticism must be cast down in order to see beauty instead of faults.  Be happy to share what God has shown you to others to cause them to grow and see things in a positive way instead of a negative way.  I want all my thoughts to be Godlike in what I say and do. Arguments and fighting does not accomplish anything, but more of the same.

January 13-JOSEPH DESTINY WAS TO RULE EGYPT

 January 13-JOSEPH  DESTINY WAS TO RULE EGYPT.  The word Joseph means add to and increase, from perfection unto perfection.  Joseph represents the Christ of our Being to increase into a  broader understanding of a higher Spiritual Truth that cannot be destroyed.  Egypt means shut in, restrain, misery, tribulation, and  distress.  Egypt is the realm of human thinking and human behavior, ignorance, flesh awareness, subject to Pharaoh, who is the desire of the flesh. The Son of Righteousness or the Christ is veiled to know the Truth of our Being.  Pharaoh, “Does not want the people to go” with all its human rules and regulations to control us from receiving God by Edging God out.  Egypt is the “Father of lies,” wants man to believe he is God and can do everything himself without God.  Joseph is the ruler of all Egypt. The younger brother of Joseph, who is Benjamin, means the Son of the Right Hand, who is all of us coming into who we are and why we are here.  This is Benjamin the sons and daughters of God manifested.

January 12-ARE YOU PRAISING GOD IN THE PIT?

January 12-ARE YOU PRAISING GOD IN THE PIT?  In the Bible, Joseph’s brothers hated him because he was his father’s favorite.  They agreed to throw him into a pit and let him die.  A pit is any situation in our lives where we can’t see an answer to the problem until we praise God in the pits of negativity and know we can go through any situation.  Joseph’s brother Judah-means praise said not to let him die, but to sell him and make a profit.  Judah represents the spiritual  faculty to increase with prayer and praise.  Prayer and praise is  an expression of spiritual consciousness to be aware of the Spiritual ream instead of the realm of human negative thoughts.  Praise is the key to increase life’s activity to be in touch with the highest faculty of God.  Praise keeps the soul fresh, pure and beautiful.  Praise is the power that opens up the inner portals of the soul to the full and free inflow of spiritual light.  Judah saved Joseph’s life to reach his destination purpose of his life to be fulfilled.

January 11-INFINITY

January 11-INFINITY.  Infinity means unlimited space, time or quantity.  In infinity is always expanding and enlarging our capacity to know and experience.  Just think in infinity your love will never end.  There will be no pain, suffering, wars, jealousy, hate, and no human thoughts and beliefs.  “How high and marvelous are your Ways, God and far beyond my understanding.”  Nothing is done by mere chance or happenstance.  Christ must be in control of my life, because I can not do this life by myself or do anything on my own.  I must depend on the Christ in me to live my life with Unconditional Love, Peace and Happiness that never ends.  Our expectations looks for more complete manifestation of our own Divinity.  We are constantly waiting for more unfolding the principles of Life, Truth, Perfect Love into action in our inner life with Christ of our Being in us and As us.  Our work rest in Eternal Law of Good.  We are not limited to anything about God in the creative principles.  We lay aside all our beliefs in boundaries of limitations and increase life and more blessings will be ours.  A man’s reach is to go to Infinity and Beyond.

January 10-YOU ARE THE CONTAINER OF GOD

January 10-YOU ARE THE CONTAINER OF GOD.  You are the cup of God that contains the Substance.  John 18:11-“The cup which the Father has given me, shall I not drink it?  To drink of a cup means to take in faith, “Seeing the Substance hoped for is manifested.”  Drinking of the Living Water is done by crossing out of the personal self of me, and My having a new spiritual life.  We can change lemons to lemonade.  “A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down.”  “You can put thoughts or the sword back into the sheath and think thoughts of peace instead of fighting.  Nehemiah was a cup bearer meaning he tasted everything for the King so no one could poison the King.  The Christ tasted death, burial and resurrection for us so we could be able to do the same things through Christ that lives within us.  This cup will never thirst again. Remove from me the cup that contains human thinking, all negative thoughts and fill the cup with Substance of the Christ the only Substance there is.

January 9-ARE YOU STILL FEEDING YOUR NEGATIVE MAN?

January 9- ARE YOU STILL FEEDING YOUR NEGATIVE MAN? Your negative thoughts that tries to rule your life keeps popping up each day to try to destroy your Identity as a Spirit person having the life of God in your Being. These thoughts are only temptations that are not real unless you believe them and react to these situations. Whatever you feed, grows. It feeds things of God or things of the human mind that does not exist only by belief in it. We have the Mind of Christ only. There is not two persons inside of you. One that believes the lies of the ego thoughts that Edges God Out or the Mind of Christ that grows you deeper each day in the Spirit Realm where God is in you at all times and never leaves you or forsakes you, even sometimes you think that “Where is God when I need You? “When will this cough go away? When will I be free of pain and suffering? The answer is NOW as soon as I get rid of the old man and know that the New Man only exist. It seems impossible! God IS.

January 8-WHAT IS THE MEANING OF INTUITION?

January 8-WHAT IS THE MEANING OF INTUITION?  Intuition is the Wisdom of the heart or the Spirit Realm.  It has more guidance than the human mind or brain.  When we trust Spirit and looks to it with understanding, a certain confidence in the invisible good develops in the soul.  This faith awakens the Divine Knowing.  When God speaks to you, you know the Voice of God is the Truth, and no one can take this Truth away from you.  This intuition is something you Know without a doubt that it will happen according to the Word spoken to you. Intuition is ever spreading its wings for greater flights.  Man makes discovery of Self when the seed of freedom is planted in our innermost Being and is recognized. There is no more gloom and doom teaching, but all you know is the Kingdom of God is coming to this earth as is in Heaven or the Spirit realm.  Negative things are coming to a surface and done away with.  God is in control.

January 7-PRUNE WHAT IS NOT GODLY

January 7-PRUNE WHAT IS NOT GODLY.  Pruning means cutting away that is not healthy.  Pruning is necessary to make our lives beautiful to cut away negative thoughts,  and have God thoughts to take its place.  All our doubts, fears, unhappiness, unpleasant things that happen, pain, suffering let us not dwell on these things.  Let us prune away all worry and concerns that crowds our minds with negative thoughts and feelings.  Every thing is going to Be alright.  I can let the miracle of Life and Love take place.  My human thoughts can be pruned away when necessary.  We know that nothing happens by accident or by chance.  God rules our lives and not the ego thoughts that EDGE GOD OUT.  I can see beauty instead of faults.  “With God all things are possible.”  God turns everything to Good.  I AM perfect health, wealth, Love and all things that God has for me.  We are the children of God and an heir of God and joint heir with Christ Jesus.

January 6-WHAT DOES CONCEPTION MEAN?

January 6-WHAT DOES CONCEPTION MEAN?  Conception means being pregnant, think understanding, having a concept ideas set in motion.  When God gives you a Truth, the seed is planted in your mind to understand, but it has to take time to grow.  That is where a child to be born takes 9 months to birth.  Nine is the number of the Fruit of the Spirit-Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self control..  Nine comes after eight meaning new beginning.  Nine has powers and properties of a new birth. It means conclusion of a matter.  It is the number of finality or judgment (a turning point to the things of God only.)  We only want to conceive the thoughts of God.  Remember, thoughts are creative.  We want to only create thoughts of God, and the negative thoughts must be deleted.  We can conceive a world of peace and only the Love of God that is Unconditional.  God is in our thoughts this day.  God is all there is.

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.
