Default The surpent

While I'm telling you things about him. The surpent is the one that (re) pents and the (sur) pents. That means he repented but then turned back to his old ways, surpented, He feeds you the dust of the earth as food for understanding and he is on the west side. The sun rises in the east and light dawns from it but the light goes down in the west.The light being the knoledge of God or understanding of the knoledge of God. Maybe that's not clear enough. To repent is to turn away from you sinfull nature but the surpent is the one that turns away from God.

Are these supposed to be truths that "all" people can get or just you? I ask because I've never heard anything like these before from any church or any christians in 30 years...not on Christian TV either or in books, magazines, etc...certainly not in Bible Commentaries. Just checking.

Everything I know comes from the bible.

Not the written word though right? Since just awhile back you stated that the written word was not where the truth was found, and obviously these things are not known by most anyone who reads the written word.

Yiou say that like I don't believe the word. It is not what is written that is wrong. It is the understanding of man or thought of man when they read it that is in error. Are you mad at me too know.

No, I'm not mad in the least...I just don't see how in the world anyone can come up with these ideas you come up with on their own....and if they can't...why did God make the bible uninterpretable to everyone except you? It seems like something is a little haywire here.

You made me laugh. Sorry if I sound like a no it all. It's because I know the garden of eden was on the east and the caves are below the Garden. It's because the lord will move you sins away from you as far as east is from west. It's because the gifts of Jesus at his birth from the kings are the treasures from the garden. It's because we will be transformed into the brightness of God on the last day.

No problem...I find it easy to overlook sincere know it all's...but it's your interpretations that have me veering off the road to try to figure out the hidden path that can lead to such ideas. I'm not against adventure but I think the written word in reality does provide a higher adventure than what we can get into by veering off into new frontiers. It's kinda ironic how what can seem boring really does hold the greatest journey of all.

Preachergirl. I can't help it . I love the lord so much. I want to know everthing about him. I don't want to walk in darkness. I want to know what is right and know how to walk upright in his eyes. I know the Lord suffered and died for us. Now I need to know how to pay him back. I need to know why people failled before so I don't make the same mistakes. I know God has mercy on the meek and won't let the devil hurt them but I don't want to be meek, I want to be strong in God , for God , doing the will of God. I know God lets the devil tempt you to see if you are strong enough to to chase him away. I want to be that guy. And all this because I know he is real and my father in heaven.

Well then my Dear, if you are sincere, let's recall that in God's eye, the meek are the strong and who man considers strong is very often who God sees as weak! The difference between the meek and strong are...the meek are often like little children...innocent minded, appearing even naive to those who consider themselves at a higher standing in life, but their pure and innocent hearts, which man mistakes for weakness, are stong in what?....

In sincerity...like children who love so easily and don't worry what people think...because they see no evil...but only "see and believe" what is so simple...like Jesus loves me...and also like...whatever God says in his word...they take it so simply for just what it says...and sometimes this simplicity of mind does see what the prideful mind cannot....because the prideful mind feels it must read into God all of it's own great knowledge! It can't accept that God would say something so simple...because it doesn't cast pride upon their great knowledge they think they must have so that they can shine in the sight of men!!!

The meek may find themselves taken advantage of at times...for what? For not even noticing when people judge them as naive...for how simple minded they are.....but alas....God is not like man who highly respects the prideful mind of man...but God respects more the simple heart of humility...that doesn't care who gets the credit...as long as I can just know Jesus and learn more about him.....

We all try too hard sometimes to be something....when God already loves and accepts us for who and what we "really" are....I picked up on something a long time ago....Most people have the same fears, the same weaknesses, the same vulnerabilites....so then, I can just be me because even if people look down on me....I am "knowing" that there most likley secretly have the same fears and issues that I do....

They are just hiding behind faces like everyone else. But no need to despise them...God has come to set us free from all these things...and give us peace...he has accepted us for who he made us to be...so no need to try to compete with man...we all have things God put in us uniquely...and no one person has it all...

To be true to others is to be true to ourself and God too....and it's who we really really are...just plain and simple...that God shines through the very most....the trouble people have is finding the real person they are...that is buried beneath layers and layers of defenses and masks and things that we take on...in order to gain approval and acceptance...and then we don't get it anyway! So we might as well just be who we are and have the peace of knowing that we are fully accepted and even loved as we are by God.
