Jesus Dispelled the Lies!

Jesus came to show us the truth, to do away with lies that had confused us for too long, lies of unworthiness, shame and alienation, lies of unlovableness and inherent badness.  He came to dispel the lies we'd believed, to show us those thoughts and feelings of separation were only in our mind!  "You were alienated from God in your MINDS."  The reconciliation Jesus worked was bringing our mind back to seeing reality, wasn't it, because HE never left, and we only thought we did!  It was a reconciliation of the mind, really, for we've always been together in reality. 

Confused thoughts and lies trapped us in a way of life thinking we were far from God, when really He was in us all along, waiting to be known and enjoyed!  Paul spoke of the day he saw the truth of God's presence in him, saying:  "It pleased God to reveal Christ IN me."  IN!  The wonderful truth is that we have always been IN God and He IN us, wow!  The separation was only in our mind all this time, never something real! 

Even when we acted out our deep fears stemming from the mind's belief in being a separated, shameful, unlovable, 'bad' person, even when we acted on those fears and doubts and killed God's own Son, He showed us the truth, didn't He, by forgiving us, saying we didn't know what we were doing! 

That is perfect LOVE, unconditional Love, Love that embraces the worst thing we could do!  At our worst moment, He loved us..He proved His love by the cross..He showed us we were always lovable, always beloved, always cherished by the Father!  We had thought we were unloved, unlovable..and the cross did away with this lie!  The cross proved how loved we were and are, as if He were saying, "You can do your worst and I'll still love you..You can even kill me and I'll still LOVE YOU!"

And He came out of the grave, basically erasing our crime - ! - without a mention of our wrongdoing, as if to say, "I always knew you were innocent, I always knew you were good!" 

He always knew we were God's children, HE was always our core nature, we always had our Father God's DNA of goodness and love, we just didn't know it..we forgot..our minds were deceived and we fell into transgression..in our minds!  But not in reality, for we could never change our DNA, never stop being in God's perfect image and likeness of LOVE!  It was always there inside us all along, the Great Heart of Love was always beating deep within us, loving us, being Pure Love, in us, as our very DNA!  We were encoded with God/Love all along!  Jesus came along and confirmed that even if we acted totally contrary to that nature, that DNA, it was still true deep down! 

He declared us innocent by the resurrection, wow!  And He confirmed our purity by unleashing the Holy Spirit, rivers of living water that had been pent up in us for so long rushed forth 'from within our innermost being!'  Where He had been all along!

I love how Jesus nailed to the cross every belief we ever had in every lie that ever existed..through His death and resurrection He did away with every lie that ever held us back from enjoying what is rightfully ours by birthright - the right of the children to enjoy their Papa's lap, to hear His voice of tenderness, to feel His warm embrace and KNOW Him in joyful relationship..safe at Home in HIM, where we've always belonged!

    Wow, that was a big “Uh, how did I manage to miss that bit?” when I read “"You were alienated from God in your MINDS." ???  It’s just so, Wow!  I’m so totally like that these days – my mind being so slow to catch up with the Truth of it all!  You make it all so clear and so simple, thanks!

    There’s a song by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils called “It’ll shine when it shines” check out the line that says, “…but like my Daddy says, it’s in your heart not your head…”  I’ve been singing it for years, but now when I sing it I hope that I remember that it’s my REAL Daddy that’s telling me.

     

    Isn’t it so like we were asleep until the very moment that Jesus came and our Papa began to wake us, and wake us very gently.  Wow, I’ve just had the thought of us (the whole of mankind!) being One and our Papa coming to gently wake his Bride!  And this awakening was then and now and more and more unto the perfect day!


    I wish that I could paint, I would paint a picture of a sleeping bride, where the bride is made up of countless little people figures.

     

    You’ve really covered a lot in this post! 
    Thank you.

  3. Woolly, I Love what you shared and feel the same way about this, the whole of mankind being One and how He comes to awaken His Bride! I love how we are all waking up to what has always been true! It was only in our minds that we ever sensed alienation..and our minds were misguided and confused, thinking thoughts based on pure lies! Now we can see the truth in the face of Jesus Christ - that our Father loves us, and His image is the one we're created in, we're on His same kind, made of Pure Love, fit for Him, loved by Him, one with Him in nature! Wow! I love the image you shared of the bride awakening!
