How To Win The 2012 American Presidency


I tuned in to the Glenn Beck radio program yesterday while driving.

Beck was discussing leadership, and how those who  lead must  do so by  example.

Beck articulated that a master only obtains credibility when he washes the feet of those whom he serves. Or the leader to the ones whom she leads.

As is customary sometimes with Beck, he will hit on something that fires me up and gets me out of my old paradigmal  box thinking.

God is s linear thinker, while people are box thinkers.

Much of the exertion in the renewing of the mind as discussed by the Apostle Paul in Romans 12:2,  is to get us out of box thinking and into God’s linear thinking.

We know that Mitt Romney is a millionaire and if elected would not need a presidential salary.

What if, Beck suggested, Romney would declare the following to the nation.

“I will not take a salary during my tenancy as president. I will make certain that my salary goes into the reduction of the national debt.”

What would Americans think? Would they love this idea?

Would this serve a breath of political fresh air to the majority of Americans?

I would think so.

Would this be a political game changer for Mitt?

I would think so.

Would this get any candidate owning  this, elected?

I would think so.

Beck then went on to discuss the salary of the average American.

$40, 000.00 was the figure he gave.

What if each member of the Congress and the Senate would commit to collect this average American salary and place the rest into the reduction of the  national debt?

This is honest leadership which will inspire Americans versus the Cronyism that we see in Washington DC.

Leaders must put their money where their mouths are.

Beck echoes what the Apostle Paul penned about principled leadership two thousand years back.

1Ti 3:2  A bishop ( episcope) then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

Bishop is the Greek  compound “episcope”.

Epi, is the preposition, to be on top, above,  or upon.

Scope is the word to scope out, scrutinize, and inspect.

The bishop or for that sense, any leader, must be on top or above those whom she leads so that she can from this place scope out.

Being above others is not a crooked  power grab or the lust for control.

A moral leader is above those whom she leads in character, integrity, honesty, maturity, self-sacrifice and the willingness to serve.

From this above position she can then scope out and down, and scrutinize the problems to support and solve.

1Ti 5:17  Let the elders that rule ( proistemi ) well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

The Apostle Paul uses yet another compound in defining upright rulership or government.

Pros is the preposition to place something  before something else.

Histemi is to cause something to stand; that is to establish or fix something in place.

So ruling according to God is to go before and set up, or cause something to stand as an example, for others to perceive and follow.

A good leader goes before those who she leads, and places herself as an example to be followed.

Paul boldly says.

1Co 11:1  Be ye followers (mimetes: from where the word mimic comes) of me, even as I also am of Christ.

Be a mimic of me as I am a mimic or an imitator of Christ.

This sadly confirms the systemic and inclusive failure of American politics.

Those in power, lead not by providing  a proper example for others to follow, but by the tearing down of an opponent to be exalted. This type of leadership will eventually cause the leader and those whom he leads to trip into a ditch.

But what if, as Beck suggests, there would be a true episcope who leads by proistemi?

I am thinking about circulating my blog entry to Mitt Romney, Barack Obama, my senators and congressman and see if there are any takers.

I think that Beck’s idea is good enough to go viral.

Feel free to share this blog entry if you think that in 2012 we need elected politicians whom will lead by example and not by corruption.

I would put my money that any presidential candidate who would commit in doing what Beck recommends would win the 2012 election.

The Voice


I just watched a great film with Denzel Washington called “Man on Fire.”

The lynchpin kidnapper was devotedly called “The Voice”, and for good reason.

In the film, children were abducted in Mexico City for millions of dollars from wealthy families. The parents would then receive a phone call from a man whom they would never see. “The Voice” on the other line would disseminate strict instructions on how to make the ransom drop . Failure to do as “The Voice” instructed, resulted  in the summary slaying of the child.  Eventually “The Voice” was revealed as Daniel Sanchez who was executed by the Mexican police.

But “The Voice”, the only authentic one, is the voice of God.

“The Voice” is the Holy Spirit.

Matt 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every  (rhema) word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

The rhema word of God is the moment by moment utterances of “The Voice”, The Holy Spirit.

Living a life which is true and lasts forever, can only comes by obedience to the utterances of “The Voice.”

Eph 6:17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the ( rhema ) word of God:

He who cannot hear “The Voice” will not have the sword of God at her disposal.

1Co 2:10  But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit. For the Spirit searcheth ( sounds out ) all things, yea, the deep things of God.

As a submarine sounds out the fathomless depths of the ocean, it is “The Voice” who sounds out the deep things of God, Himself.

If we are to live in the depths of revelation knowledge versus the shallowness of this word’s deception, we must function by “The Voice.”

Rom 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the ( rhema ) Word of God.

Life changing faith, the faith of God Himself, is transported to you by The Voice.

Man’s most essential duty is to clearly hear The Voice for himself.

There is no greater privilege or essentialism in this life, than to guide one’s life from moment to moment by The Voice.”

Eph 6:11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may b!e able to stand against the wiles  (methodologies)  of the devil.

The only safety against this word ‘s trickery is to hear and obey “The Voice”.

The devil pumps this globe with lying methodologies from instance to instance. Our negotiation around his schemes is in obedience to “The Voice.”

Unbeknown to mankind is that whomsoever does not follow “The Voice”,  is as Mel Gibson in the cornfield scene of movie, “Signs”,  attempting to battle the secretive alien.

This is how man or woman without “The Voice” negotiates life.  Cheers!

Isaac Newton Move Over, I am Posting The Two Most Essential Universal Laws


A law is a living principle, and axiom, that postulates that under particular circumstances, specific results will always occur.

“Newton’s law of universal gravitation states that every point mass in the universe attracts every other point mass with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.” Wikipedia

In other words,  whatever is thrown up in the air, must come down to the ground as it is affected by the impulses generated by the law of gravity.

Humanity, is subject to many types of laws.

Romans 7:23  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

Ro 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death

The two most essential universal laws are the ones which we scarcely talk about.

These two are  the “ law of the Spirit of life which resides in Christ Jesus” and “the law of sin which results in death”.

The latter dwells in the soul, members, extremities, and organs of every human being.

To sin, is to miss the bull’s eye of what God has intended for mankind.

The law of sin and death was nonexistent until Adam disobeyed God, missed God’s  bull’s eye, and triggered said law.

I am bold to say that every man and woman is directly under the control  of either the law of sin and death, or the law of the Spirit of life found inside the Person of Christ Jesus.

There is no middle ground, its either one or the other.

Like Bob Dylan said “ you gotta serve somebody”… you are either serving the law of sin and death or that of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

Some will say, “ Jose, how can you be so arrogantly narrowed minded to tell me that Christ is the only way? What about the Muslim or the Hindu? There are many ways to reach the One God!”

I’d say“ Very well, show me another historical figure that not only destroyed the law of sin which results in death, but introduced the law which gives an incorruptible, eternal type of life. If you can show me I will also investigate his or her claims.

It’s important to know that the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus is available to every human being on planet earth.

The law of the Spirit of life residing inside the Person of Christ Jesus is the universe’s foremost and essential law.

It has shattered the law of sin and death which produces unremitting impulses to sin, and that has kept most of human civilization as its unwilling victimized slave from the creation of the earth.

The law of sin and death then, is the universe’s second most essential law.

Death, illness, wars, blindness to the presence of God, greed, infidelity, hatred, and the eventual annihilation of this world,  are the products  of the incessant impulses generated by this law.

Worse than this; this law also   generates impulses which create an arrogant and antagonistic independence in mankind to the very one, Christ Jesus, who can set it free from its grasp!  This my friends, is the horribleness of sin.

Mankind, through deception, would rather die in the claws of the law of sin and death than to come to the one who will embed it with the law of the Spirit of life.

Man will not go to heaven or hell centered on whether he was good or bad, but rather to what law he was subjected to.

Heaven cannot invite those who are subject to the law of sin and death, as much as hell will reject those who are subject to the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

Let’s conclude by looking at some of the marvels of the law of the Spirit of Life which resides in Christ Jesus

Ro 7:22  For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

The law of the Spirit of Life which resides in Christ Jesus generates its impulses from an inward man in a human,  mainly Christ Jesus. The person who does not have Christ does not have this new inward man, and this law.

 Rom 8:9  But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so it be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.

If man has not invited Christ Jesus into his life, He is not of God. By that I mean, is that Christ, and the law of the Spirit of life in Him, will not be inside the man, who rejects Him.

This poor man remains clutched by the law of sin and death, and has no share in heaven based on that heaven  will not embrace anyone who is subject to the impulses which generate sin.

Ro 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death

The law of the Spirit of Life which resides in Christ Jesus not only has set me free from the law of sin and death,  but also  eradicates my sinful habits, until I have no memory of sin, and find myself effortlessly living by the impulses of heaven’s endless and incorruptible life.

11  But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.

The law of the Spirit of Life which resides in Christ Jesus will begin to nourish the extremities of your body with this eternal type of life. Though you will die because of sin, you can achieve better health and longevity due to the impulses of the law of the Spirit of life gracing the human body.

29   For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

The law of the Spirit of Life which resides in Christ Jesus will take us into a process of being conformed, that it is to assume the same form, as the glorious and eternal Christ. This process is not perfected now, but because we negotiate with a law, its impulses will lead us onward into this con – forming process.

30  Moreover, whom He predestined, those He also called; and whom He called, those He also justified; and whom He justified, those He also glorified.

To be justified is to be declared innocent. The most innocent being is a corpse. A dead man has  no sin. He is wholly innocent.

The Bible tells us that he who is dead is justified or innocent from sin.

The law of the Spirit of Life which resides in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death because I am co crucified with Christ. When Christ died, I died. I am a corpse, and thusly justified.

Now that I am justified by the law of the Spirit of life, I have the right to be transformed into the very same glory which God Himself has.

32  He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

The law of the Spirit of Life which resides in Christ Jesus will give us all things freely. This wonderful word  “freely give” is charizomai.  That is an extravagant, abundant, lavish, not ties giving. God will not hold anything back from us if its In Christ.

Jas 1:25  But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Jas 2:12  So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty

The law of the Spirit of Life which resides in Christ Jesus is the law which gives mankind perfect liberty. Liberty is not do to what we feel, based on personal choices, or rights. Much of that is really bondage. True liberty can only be found in following the impulses of the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

Sir Isaac Newton

Why Legislating Biblical Morality Is Not The Best Avenue!


Rom 6:6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

25  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

 Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Man will either be regulated by the principle that generates sin and consequent death, or the principle of the resurrection type of life which resides in Christ Jesus.

The principle of sin which leads to death was introduced into mankind at the sinning of Adam. If there is such a field as spiritual genetics, this principle has been spiritually genetically transmitted into every human being since.

A principle is another way of saying a law.  A law expresses  that under specific circumstances, specific results will always occur.

The principle of sin which leads to death, unceasingly generates sinful impulses in man. No matter how hard he tries to halt from sinning, he can only sin, because  the incessant sin generating impulses of the principle of sin and depth continue unabated in him.

Only when he comes to Christ Jesus, is the principle of sin and subsequent death rendered a fatal blow.

As an engine of a car that stops working, the principle  of the resurrection life residing in Christ Jesus, liberates man from the principle of sin and death.

Man can then learn to be led by the impulses of resurrection life which the principle of that type life inside Christ Jesus generates.

This is why it is a waste of time to legislate Biblical morality on people who are still being dictated by the impulses which the principle of sin and death generate in them.

The key is to lead the person to Jesus , who destroys the principle of sin  and death and implants the new principle of life, generating impulses which lead to freedom and wholeness..

Also, no other religion, or religious figure has been able to destroy the principle of sin and subsequent death and implant this new principle of the God kind of life, save Christ Jesus.

Let’s legislate less and bring more people to the loving arms of Jesus.

This is the solution.

You think about that today.

My Day Is First the Evening And Then The Morning.


Ge 1:5  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Ge 1:8  And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Ge 1:13  And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Ge 1:19  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Ge 1:23  And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Ge 1:31  And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Have you noticed that in the Genesis creation account God defines a day as an evening and a morning?

All logic should arouse us to do the opposite. That is, to define a day as comprising a morning first, and then the evening.

The Hebrew word for morning, “boqer”, defines a time span before or after the crack of dawn, when the sun’s leading edge brightly pierces the obscurity of the night sky.

Accordingly, evening, “ereb”, is the cycle originating when the sun’s inferior edge is swallowed at twilight into the blackness of nightfall.

For humanity, a thing is initiated with dawn and the crack of light, and ended at dusk, when the surrounding world can no longer be seen.

I do believe that God thinks in this way .

He created man to wake up with the first light and work while he has that light.

Jesus declares that there will come a night-time when no man can work.

So what was Moses’ divine inspiration which caused him to pen a day as commencing with the evening and ending with a morning?

I must confess I do not have an answer.

I did pray and get a revelation.

God works from His invisible Spirit, into visible manifestation.

He works from what is unseen to the seen.

He fashioned the world from things invisible,  things which are not readily manifested to the naked eye.

Today, what we see of God’s creation, was made from things which do not traverse the wave spectrum of physical light.

Faith is substance of things not seen.

Before God discharges something into this natural visible word, He frames it in the invisible heavenly places of His Spirit.

With God, it’s spirit first, then the perceptible.

My premise is that God formed all in the darkness of the Holy Spirit’s evening to then manifest it  in the light of the morning’s corporeality.

These few verses on evening and morning should serve as an irreplaceable lesson to civilization.

If the affairs of the USA would be handled first in the evening of Holy Spirit enigmatic workings, it would then be displayed  in the morning of God’s bright wisdom .

There would be orderly success in the affairs of our country.

But no, mankind arises to busy itself in morning of his own logic and the utter forgetfulness of His Creator who works mysteriously in the evening.

The end product is that human civilization is a virtual sinking ship in spite of all technological advances.

America is biting itself in the butt as it works in the morning of its own conceits with no consideration to the evening’s workings of God’s Spirit.

Should we inaugurate our day in the evening of God’s untraceable counsels to then display them in the morn of His wisdom?

Do I believe that this will happen?  All things are possible to him who believes.

It is it probable? Probably not.

But I am one who will  direct my day to begin in the evening and end in the morning.
