Seventh Thunder February 01, 2018

To achieve anything in the world to a greater degree one needs focus. To become a doctor you need to focus on the means to become one. If you want to commit crime, then the same level of focus and desire must be behind the acts of criminality, if you want to make a career out of it. Thankfully the vast majority of us don't have that focus to do that, but again it is just an example of using the knowledge of good and evil in our hearts.

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.

Our conversations with our own souls is what leads us in life. That imagery within our hearts, what we start to desire when our concentration is strongly focused on them, and that is where our treasure is.

Matthew 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Since the soul is both good and evil, if we are unaware of what it really is and how it operates within us, in life we could end up being anything good and bad and all things in between, especially without the righteous guidance of the Father. We will reap the fruit of our own thoughts, judging ourselves.

Jeremiah 6:19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.

As said before, we are servants of sin, and so we must turn within seeking the Father and his righteousness to be converted into servants of righteousness, instead of being servants of sin.

Matthew 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

That's not to say one should sell all their material possessions, since the poor are those without of the knowledge of the Kingdom. However if your heart is leading your mind to be focused solely on this world and the cares of life, then your reward will be to that end. So we must sell our loves and lusts of the world, and buy what Jesus taught instead.

Revelation 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

To follow Jesus, which at this point means to apply his teachings to yourself, and then help others (giving to the poor) then your treasure will be what you're focused on. The Kingdom of Heaven, and a righteousness mind.

Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Unfortunately more people's focus is on the cares of life, so their treasure is of this world.

Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

It is of the most importance that one learns what the soul, the heart is, so that we become aware of how it operates within us, blinding and leading our minds (spirit) down a destructive path, like a snare laying in wait at every moment, causing us to follow the course of this world, instead of the way of righteousness.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Again, until Jesus came and brought the Gospel, it was a mystery, and to most it still is. If any of you are spiritual, just see how the heart is worshipped amongst you. With sayings like "I believe it in all my heart" or "I feel this is true, etc, etc" That is our arrogance leading us astray, we in truth worship ourselves, believing ourselves to be Gods, creating our own reality. Unfortunately, the reality is that we are not good, nor deserve to live in a world that is very good, because the imaginations of our hearts are evil from its youth.

Matthew 15:19-20  For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man. 

Unwittingly in the blindness of our minds, we're letting something we know nothing about dominate our behaviour in this world. Somewhere along the way with have assumed that this heart, the soul within us is good for food, and provides excellent judgement. But with all hearts (souls) being the same, in that they're both the source of good and evil within us all. Aren't we all victims equally? It is why Jesus said not to judge others, and as he said, 'Forgive them Father they know not what they do.' Yes, we're all victims and receive the plagues of this harlot wine, poured out of her cup of abominations. By seeking the Father within, asking for his righteousness to shine his light (knowledge) upon our mind, we start to come out of her snare, and stop getting drunk of her wine that leaves us in a state of forgetfulness.

Mathhew 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 

The irrigation of this world also affects our souls, further polluting the soul (This Prince of the Earth) with more earthly knowledge of good and evil keeping us focused on this world. Whether that is  entertainment, education, news, politics, fear of others, and general cares of this life, 24/7 throughout 365 days of the year, something always wants our minds attention, our mind's focus. This is the design of this world. To keep us here, focused on this world, instead of seeking another which Jesus came to tell us about.

1 Corinthians 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

Even worse, with the invention of smart phones and especially social media, our minds are further polluted, with "information". These little short snippets of information merely wear down our mind's ability to focus. People can barely go 30 minutes without looking at their phones. In the long run it's only going to produce a generation of people so easily influenced, that a newspaper headline can influence their thinking, never mind the content of the article. Or have we reached that point already? The soul doesn't want people knowing what it is, so a people unable to concentrate for long periods of time is what it wants. Outside of that, it will whisper to the mind to seek out things that it hates on this Earth. Remember, we reap what we sow.

Matthew 12:36-37 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Now a passage from Proverbs, and try and read with spiritual insight instead of the human (soul) one. For it is about how the soul, this harlot, the Mystery Babylon, with its cup of abominations snares the spirit, when it is without righteousness and knowledge (The Goodman and their bag of money)

Proverbs 7:9-27 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
(Like how the Serpent was subtil in speech in Eden)
(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)

So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves. (Committing Adultery against the spirit, and running after the flesh)
For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.

With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks
; Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life
Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

Her and woman are often used as a parable for the deceitful heart, because prophecy is about using current events of their day using similitude's and allegorical structures to convey a message about something important. Don't waste time with gender issues, let those who are offended be offended, regardless the spirit is both masculine and feminine, in the flesh these aspects of the spirit are divided.

Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

They'll only distract you.

Matthew 18:7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

As said many times before, the Law and the Prophets are a shadow of good things to come, but not the very image of, which is why not one jot of the law will pass until all has been fulfilled. SPIRITUALLY. If you're waiting for things to be fulfilled physically, then you'll not see in seeing, and not hear when hearing.

Ecclesiastes 7:26 And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.

So we must learn to keep our hearts, knowing its devices so not be lead astray, or as said, taken by her, as we are sometimes taken with lust for our own desires for other people, male or female.

Luke 21:34-36 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Do not judge, because that again is a snare. All people are taken by their own craft. Good for good ,evil for evil.

1 Timothy 3:7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

But instead, preach the Gospel in the world, meaning not to glorify themselves, but to turn to the Father within.

2 Timothy 2:25-26 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves (Their own mind, the spirit); if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth (Revelations); And that they may recover themselves (spirit) out of the snare of the devil (The soul), who are taken captive by him at his will.
