......Tell me: WHY is LIFE in this world NOT reflecting the Kingdom of God? This is a very interesting and stimulating question. The word, "torment" appears in Scripture at Matt. 8:29, Luke 16:23, Rev. 9:5: 11:10, 14:11, and 20:10. The torment of God, "what might have been," is the physical opposite of the word, "to deserve." It implies a person is blocked at their source of power or will.
......So, WHY is the Kingdom of God NOT HERE, in our midst?
......Because we are not where we think we are, that’s why.
......THE qualities that define a person who is participating in the Kingdom of God. From Yehoshua [known as “Jesus”] Himself--Matthew chapter 5: “Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are they that mourn, for th4ey shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth. blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful; for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God.” And on and on.
......Okay, where are they? Where ARE these people, today? Where’d they go?
......From the Apostle Paul and all the Saints--New English Bible, 8:10-15: “For you know how generous our Lord Jesus Christ has been: he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that through his poverty you might become rich. Here is my considered opinion on the matter. What I ask you to do is in your own interests. You made a good beginning last year both in the work you did and in your willingness to undertake it. Now I want you to go on and finish it: be as eager to complete the scheme as you were to adopt it, and give according to your means. Provided there is an eager desire to give, God accepts what a man has; he does not ask for what he has not. There is no question of relieving others at the cost of hardship to yourselves; it is a question of equality. At the moment your surplus meets their need, but one day your need may be met from their surplus. The aim is equality; as Scripture has it, ‘The man who got much had no more than enough, and the man who got little did not go short.’
......So, it’s really clear that the disciples and apostles KNEW what Yehoshua was talking about when he spoke a radical theology of Trusting God. Right?
The Ten Dimensions of Reality--
1st Dimension--—A Singularity, a point in space/time “Results-NOW” ORIENTATION
2nd Dimension--—A LINE of Thought (or Coherent Light) yields an Effect in ”Objective Time” ORIENTATION.
3rd Dimension---Location in Space yields an Outcome “Be HERE NOW" ORIENTATION
4th Dimension--Forward T*I*M*E—“Big Bang” to “Dissipation” yields "Effort" ORIENTATION
5th Dimension---Valued Experience yields "What IS Good in Physical Time" ORIENTATION
6th Dimension---yields an Intention in the Wobbles of History, Chaos > Order > Chaos
7th Dimension---yields the Touch of Thought, which is Love from the Mind of God--"The Kingdom of God is within you" leading to Wisdom, to keep repeat what works for Good.
8th Dimension--—Memories and Particularities of Relationships in Subjective [Reverse] Time ORIENTATION yields insights, "The Way Things actually WERE."
9th Dimension--"Eternal/Holy Outcomes" ORIENTATION yields
DNA Roles vis a vis Doctrines—-Did they FIT, or not? If not, DREAM states deal w/Dissonance.
10th Dimension---yields Consciousness and Visualization of the JUMP from Form1 to Form2 to FormN to the idea, "Imagine THAT!"
......I hate to tell you this, but WE are where the torment IS. And, where is that torment? Where is it, that the Kingdom of God is NOT?
......Let’s go at this from another angle, for a moment. "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth ... And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband." Rev. 21:1.
......Okay, this is now two thousand years later. Where IS IT? New Jerusalem is not here, is it? The Kingdom of God is not here, is it? What IS here is torment, "how things might have been." Go back and look at the Ten Dimensions again. We live "in real-time" and experience. Notice, "time" is the Fourth Dimension. [We all already know this.]
......Now, let us reason together. Is our experience here characterized MORE by movement-in-space [Dimension 3], or by the Values and Blessings that God promised us in Level 5, which are characteristics of both Judaism and Christianity? Who of us is not a mental, if not physical, commuter, switching from task to task, rather than from Joy to Joy?
......Are our thoughts more attuned to Dimension Two—single and simple lines of thought—or are we characterized by holistic understanding of Level Six—the ebbs and flows of History itself? What is true is, nobody agrees with anybody else about the time of day, let alone, an interpretation of History.
......Finally, do we more often experience immobilization by a single point of attention [as in slavery] or do we more often share the experience of the thoughts of God in the Body of Christ or in Temple sacrifices? When was the last time we took a real Sabbath vacation or retreat, in which we permit ourselves to rest with God in Trust? That’s what happens in the Physical Kingdom of God, not here.
......Remember, Yahweh said, the Law would last forever. Therefore, somewhere, it is still going on. Remember, the Christ is King for how long? Where? Not here! Then, you see, we live in Objective Time, not in Physical Time. And, we are in the lowest existential framework for human existence, namely, the Objective Dimension. We cannot get out of here until God, our Judge and Sovereign, lets us out of here. Oh! No wonder, things are so hard! No wonder, the Rich suffer right along with the Poor! No wonder, there is no advantage, no peace, in money or high birth or privilege or rank! We are not where we thought we were, that’s why.
......There are TWO LEVELS of human experience above us—not one. Heaven is not what is alone, above us. We are in the Abyss, below the Physical. The world of Yehoshua’s teachings that are in operation, and the world of the Law Covenant where the Law is kept are both above our heads, on concentric surfaces of this planet earth, less dense and further out than the dense surface on which we stand, sit and lie down.
.......Our sense of time in Objective Time is limited to movements in space; trajectories, processes and procedures. It is left to the Physical Level above us, to understand Values and History collectively; to manifest Good out of one’s will freely with effort, and understand the Thoughts of God by simple telepathy and thought sharing. It is left to Lighter, subjective Spirits, to inhabit Heaven, the furthest out and least dense surface of this planet, to create one’s habitat instantaneously out of the visualization stores of one’s memory; to travel back-and-forth in Subjective Time at will; and to converse with Angels.
......This our world is in travail, endlessly. There is no end of torment in Hell. This is why things never get better. This is why history is filled with “the same old same old,” from generation-to-generation. This is why violence is expected, here, because the Kingdom of God is NOT here.
......Folks, we are in Hell. And we are ALL here because we have some sort of ego problem: 1. Either we think we’re smarter than God, as Satan did, Cain did and the hyper-religious and atheistic among us, do. 2. OR, we think that Yahweh God’s Covenants don’t particularly matter-—that God SHOULD love everybody “equally” and in the same fashion, as Esau did.
......So, it doesn’t work to say, “I’m no sinner.” If we were not all abject sinners, we would not be here. So, let’s listen up.
......Would someone like to challenge this idea?
