A HEALING THOUGHT
When you succeed in turning entirely
to Spirit, God, for healing
it’s a really, really good idea
to lose all interest in the problem –
so much so that the way is
completely clear for Spirit to take over.
Let your new focus consume you –
the old you – and be the infinite Self
that you really are: your eternal body,
or Soul, which you can step into at will.
We are ONE body, One Son, right now.
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.  For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:  If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.  For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.  Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.  Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:  (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)  We are confident, I say , and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.  Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.  Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.  For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.  For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.  For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:  And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.  Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;  To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
2 Corinthians 5:1-21 KJV
I lay aside all human pride
Knowimg I’m on a mission.
God sent me to you to say
“I got this one, my sweet child.
DO NOT FOR ANY REASON
Doubt my ever-presence,
Make that OUR ever-presence
– for you and I are ONE.
YOU’VE BEEN ASKING FOR IT: A CLEAR AND EASY EXPLANATION OF PRETERISM
. . . . .
What is preterism? It simply means “past fulfillment.”An Old Testament passage taken from Isaiah is a good example. Isaiah 9: 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder ,and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah prophesies the birth of the Messiah over 700 years in advance. Jesus was born, fulfilling the prophecy. All scholars agree that the birth of Jesus (the incarnation) will not happen again. Our understanding of this prophecy looks back to its fulfillment; therefore, a preterist interpretation is applied. In the current eschatological debate, preterism interprets numerous New Testament passages that dispensationalism applies to the future, our future. These future events include the kingdom of God, the last days, the rise of antichrist and the Great Tribulation. Preterism gained notoriety through its interpretation of the book of Revelation. Instead of interpreting the images as events in our future, preterism sees the timing of these events occurring in the first century. John’s prophecy found its fulfillment with events happening during the Jewish wars with Rome, and ending with the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple.
