17 Good Reasons Why The Eternal Is Better


Mt 18:19  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing ( pragma) that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

 Lu 1:1  Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things ( pragma) which are most surely believed among us,

 Heb 10:1  For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things ( pragma) can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

 Heb 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things  (pragma) not seen.

  1. The objects or things which make up God’s invisible places in His kingdom are called pragmas.
  2. They are the flawless and pristine originals, the prototypical and archetypical models, the primeval images, moldings, and impressions, the paradigmatic blueprints and schematics and the immaculate criterion for every universal thing created by God in its perfect and untarnished form.
  3. Pragmas are the perfections of God’s creation before the curse of sin marred them.
  4. Earthly objects are under the curse of sin, and have become temporal.
  5. Pragmas seamlessly function, are intact, whole, pristine, uncontaminated, unbreakable, and eternally lasting.
  6. They are accessed by faith and the revelation of the Holy Spirit.
  7. They dwell in the light of the glory of God.
  8. Pragmas are the perfections of God’s eternal creation before the curse of sin marred them.
  9. They are not subject to a malfunction or to a breakage.
  10. Pragmas are not limited to the dimensions of height, width, and length, and are limitless in quantities which limit objects in their sinful state.
  11. Pragmas operate in the same way that God Himself operates.
  12. They function in the realm of glory, are accessed by faith and can increase and diminish by faith. God creates and governs by His pragmas.
  13. Because every universal pragma lies created inside of Christ, through His reconciliation, everything becomes conformed back to the images of those pragmas.
  14. This is one of the great works of Christ. No other religious leader has accomplished this.
  15. It is a wonder then that God is giving man access to these pragmas once again.
  16. They who have Christ have all of these pragmas inside of them.
  17. What does this mean to you today?Reasons-001

What Makes Christ Stand Out From The Rest


Col 2:9  For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

The apostle Paul states that in or inside of Christ lives the Godhead.

The Godhead is the relationship which the Father and the Son enjoy and is manifested by the Holy Spirit.

Because Christ lives in the Christian, the Godhead, and its activity, exists in him or her.

The following scriptures describe some of the functions of The Son within the Godhead.

Joh 1:3  All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.

 Col 3:11  where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, foreigner, Scythian, slave or freeman, but Christ is all things in all.

 Col 1:16 for in Him is all created, that in the heavens and that on the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones, or lordships, or sovereignties, or authorities, all is created through Him and for Him,

 Col 1:17  And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.

Inside of Christ dwells all creation. The vastness of this, mere human mind cannot fathom.

Every blueprint, schematic and pattern of all things which God the Father has created dwells in Christ. Sin has temporarily marred part of God’s creation. Yet, the unmarred and unflawed originals, the prototypes and archetypes, the models, blueprints, and schematics of God’s perfect creation dwell in Christ.

God is a God of blueprints or patterns. In the book of Revelation we see the Ark of the Covenant in the heaven. This heavenly ark represents the prototype and archetype of the perfect ark.

The great work of the church is to duplicate through examples and copies on the earth, the original and unflawed archetypes and prototypes of God’s objects in the heavens.

This was the greatness of Moses’, whose ministry was devoted to building on earth the examples and copies of these prototypes or models.

Heb 8:5 who, by an example and shadow, are offering the divine service of the celestials, according as Moses has been apprized when about to be completing the tabernacle. For see, He is averring, that you shall be making all “in accord with the model shown to you in the mountain.”

 Col 3:11  where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, foreigner, Scythian, slave or freeman, but Christ is all things in all.

 Col 1:16 for in Him is all created, that in the heavens and that on the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones, or lordships, or sovereignties, or authorities, all is created through Him and for Him,

The immensity of Christ is that In or Inside of Him exists every model, pattern, prototype and archetype of all which God the Father has created. This is why Paul boldly says that Christ is all things in all.

1Co 1:30  But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption;

 Christ is made in to these things on behalf of the church.

Paul does not tell us that Christ gives us wisdom, or righteousness or sanctification. He is made into these things by fact that all archetypes dwell in Him.

Col 1:20 and through Him to reconcile all to Him (making peace through the blood of His cross), through Him, whether those on the earth or those in the heavens.”

 Reconciliation is  to bring back to the original archetypes and models all things before sin came and messed them up.

Christ has the right to reconcile because the models and prototypes of God’s creation in their perfect state exist in Him.

To be healed is to revert back to the prototype of health which God created before sin was introduced.

It is not so much that a person gets healed. It is more that she has been reconciled back to God’s prototype for wholeness.

As Christ is revealed, every model, and archetype of God’s originals become revealed along with Him, because they exist in Him. Not only are they revealed, but Christ has been made into these very things. The more revelation of Christ the more that He becomes or is made into these things. It’s automatic.

This then must be the focus of the Christian’s life.

What is the role of the Father in the Godhead?  Part of our answer is found in the following scripture

1Co 12:6 and there are apportionments of operations “energema”, yet the same God Who is operating all in all.”

This complex verse is translated from the Greek, in the following way.

“For there are diversities of end results, outcomes, fruit, or products of what has been energized, yet it is the same God who is energizing the all in all.

This uncommon word “operation” or “energema” appears twice only in the Bible.

We see it the second time in verse ten.

1Co 12:10  To another the working  “energema” of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

An energema is the result, the outcome, or product, of something which has been energized. It is what is tangible and clear to the human senses because it has been completed and manifested.

It makes sense then, that we find energema when we discuss the miracles of God.

A miracle is the result, the outcome, the tangible and visible product of an invisible model or archetype which God has in the heavenlies.

We see that part of the Father’s role in the Godhead is to bring to manifestation and fruition the hidden models and prototypes of His unflawed and unmarred created objects. He is always energizing to do this.

Now, where are of the prototypes and models hidden? You guessed it. They are all in Christ.

The Father at work constantly energizing to manifest the creation through His Son. More so, His only real focus is to manifest His Son, knowing that unflawed creation dwells in Him. The Father longs to energize and demonstrate His Son through the believer, and with Him to show the perfections of heaven, which dwell in Him.  This is part of the activity of the Godhead in the Christian.

Joh 17:23  I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me.

It’s not so much about getting healed, or set free, or having money. All of the perfect models and blueprints are already in the Son.  The more revelation, the more will be the healing, and the deliverance. It’s all automatic!

The Father, who dwells in the Christian, desires to manifest His Son and the things in Him as tangible, completed products, results, and outcomes, to this lost and dying world.

Christian, now you know that the models and prototypes of all of God’s perfect creation lives in you, and that God the Father operates in a faith to always energize and manifest them, as He manifests His Son through youBleuprints

By Golly They Are Playing Dice In The Bible


Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight (Kubeia / the cube or the throwing of the dice) of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Neither would we be carried about by every wind produced by the agendas of men which resemble the deceptive throwing of dice.
Much of Christ’s love is found in the knowledge of His Word. The Bible is God’s love letter to humanity, the compass for fruitful and joyous living, and the map for infinite life. If we reject it, we bring blindness to ourselves and become in danger of falling into the eternal flames of hell.
Christian love must not just be talked but walked.
Eph 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Buy by “TRUTHING IT” in love;
The “truth”, in this verse is a verb, literally defined as “truthing it”. The believer has the responsibility to manifest God’s ways in every aspect of her life.
Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight ( Kubeia / the cube or the throwing of the dice) of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Literal Greek: That by no means would we be toddlers tossed around by the surge of vigorous waves.
Neither would we be carried about by every wind produced by the agendas of men which resemble the deceptive throwing of dice.
These type of agendas are being devised to work around the person a systematizing or methodology which produces error or (planetizing/ from planet –to wondering).
The ploy of the devil is to create this type of ingrained thinking in the minds of men.
Any type of rhetoric or philosophies which tempts man to rebel against the Bible is the systematization of error tossing man into the foam of secularism and sending him to hell.
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
Having the deep patterns of thinking in a darkened existence, they are alienated from the God type of life through ignorance. This ignorance dwells in calloused hearts which have rejected God.
2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
“Sound doctrine” is a medical term defined as being healthy and whole. Only the doctrine of the Word of God can make humanity healthy. A nation becomes sick when it rejects God and His Word
“Endure” comes from the word anaecho, or the “taking of things unto oneself to have.” “What is scary about what Paul writes is his choice of the word “not”. This Greek negative has two forms. One is the word “me” and the other one is “ouk”. The stronger one is used here, the word “ouk”, meaning absolutely not, under any circumstances.
The verse translates as follows: There will come a season when they will absolutely reject receiving wholesome teaching but after their own carnal desires will heap and collect teachers which will only tell them pleasant things.
4 and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
And indeed from what is right about God they shall turn away their ears and shall twist them upon myths.
The remedy for this malady is in the hand of the Christian believer.
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
Proclaim the word; be present and active in doing so, when the season is good, and when there is no season. Convict or expose, rebuke and exhort with every type of longsuffering and teaching.
Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
Holding tight against yourself (grasping and embracing) the faithful word that you may have the ability by wholesome and healthy doctrine to exhort and expose the ones who contradict or take a stand against God’s word.
2 Cor 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds
For the destruction of bulwarks; a bulwark is a fortification, a defense, a safe guard or protection. These are mindsets in human beings which are developed over years to protect or justify. A person that has been terribly hurt by parents or a pastor might produce a bulwark of defiant, anti-Biblical and anti-conservative thinking
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God;
And every uplifted thought or thinking which is elevated against the progressing knowledge of who God is.

For some they will not live happily ever after


The Apostle Paul was not just a spiritual giant.

I have studied Paul’s New Testament writings for 36 years to the syntax, grammar and word studies of the Greek New Testament.

Paul is one history’s greatest intellectual and literary geniuses.

If Christianity, the resurrection from the dead of the man Jesus Christ, giving humanity a hope of eternal life is a fairy tale or fiction, then we can conjecture the following.

Paul was a habitual liar bent on deceiving the world.

What would thrust a man to do such a thing?

Either, pure evilness, medically diagnosed insanity, or most probably a mixture of both.

Anyone who is on a mission to purposely deceive and by that destroy others eternal destinies is pure evil of the worse kind.

Another who deceives long enough, though not medically insane, attains to insanity, by the reprobate thinking which impregnates him through his habitual lying.

We see this disease among our politicians.

Those who are medically insane joined with chronic lying become socio or psychopaths.

Have you seen the writings of a psychopath?

What did you find?

The lunatic pens with distortions, aberrations and flaws in content and style.

He gets away with appearing sane for a page or two, but the irregularities and peculiarities of his pen catch up to him.

By the third or fourth page, the first and second are alien to the reader, and to the lunatic himself.

He can’t find his own proverbial shoes to tie his untied shoe laces.

That’s one reason I hate to lie. I know that sooner or later its abnormality will catch up with me, and put me in a quandary where I have to explain both to God and man.

I am sadly stunned at the ignorance of politicians who are chronic liars.

Because of this reprobate feature in their thinking created through their habitual lying, they have no fear that their lies will catch up to God or man.  I promise you, to God, they will catch up, and with God there will be righteous retribution.

Or take a chronic liar.

The liar and the lunatic, bent on deceiving not just one, but the masses, generations, and nationalities, is evil.

Such evilness is displayed in angry, divisive, and hateful rhetoric peppered throughout his writings. Such were and are Marx, Stalin, Castro, Chavez; the greatest communists of our times.

Take the man Paul, on the other hand.

He wrote thirteen of the New Testament books.

I have meticulously studied his writings for thirty six years, as I said.

If Paul would have been a habitual deceiver, bent on leading the human race astray, his fabrications would have caught up with him, somewhere, somehow, some time.

This is not the case with Paul.

His writings are the peak of human spiritual comprehension into the thoughts of God, the Almighty.

Intellectually they surpass those of Shakespeare, Plato or Aristotle.

They are seamlessly penned.

I have not caught one alteration or misrepresentation in any of the thirteen books that would show that Paul was lying.

The aberrations or irregularities if any would have caught up with him sometime in the last two thousand years.  But there is none of this.

If Paul was medically insane, the same would be true. The anomaly or eccentricity of a lunatic mind would have manifest in his writings.

What I see, as undeniably wholesome writings coming out of a sound mind, are the writings of Paul.

Sounder than mine, and of any human being whom I have known or read, is his penmanship.

The third point is that of love and hate.

Any man who is determined to purposely deceive is full of hate.

The lunatic cannot truly love, because he only loves himself. It’s impossible for the insane to love another, when he is in love with himself.

Yet Paul not only teaches on selfless love but lives it out by suffering a martyr’s death.

Only the extremely sound in mind can selflessly love. The sick in mind is absorbed with self.  Such is depression and self-pity.

Though I was not in body for the death and resurrection of the man Jesus Christ, it’s impossible for the words of Paul to be fiction or fairy tale, as some say.

They say such things because it protects them from having to initiate a search into the claims of Christianity.

This is a search that will jolt them into an encounter with the Living God, whom they avoid due to deep heart wounds, from relationships with earthly parents.

The pain of what they suffered is just too great. They have either equated God with their parents, or blame God for what occurred, and or conjectured that no God could exist if such horrible things happened to them.

Atheism is a defense mechanism that denies the reality of a God who would allow such terrible pain to occur.

The atheist hides his gaping and unhealed wound in a dustbin closet of his heart, unhealed till the day he dies. It’s his decision.

If he admits that God is real, his wound must need to come out of the closet and into the light. It’s simply too scary to see the wound in the brightness of the light.

While it’s in the dark, it can’t be seen and hence not real.

So the atheist keeps the closet door shut and the wound hidden by chalking Paul’s writings to fiction and fairy tale.

But for those who are brave enough to deal with our pain and not to deny it, it is best to come to the light and let that light expose, to then heal.

Paul has outscored in the three marks for honesty, soundness of mind, and unselfish love, in the penning of his thirteen literacy masterpieces.

Will I be one to fancifully chalk up all that Paul did and wrote to lunacy, lying, fairy tale or fiction?

Will I keep the painful spider webs of my past in the dark closet of denial, or will I bring them to the bright light that will display the scary gaping wound, to then heal it?

When we profess that what Paul wrote is fairy tale, we claim that we ourselves live in a fairy tale.

And oh my, how wonderful it is to live in a fairy tale where everything ends cheerfully bright and happily ever after.

We can live in denial on earth, and yes, live in our fairy tale.

In the grave, where the dusk of the temporal and the dawn of the eternal finally kiss, the fairy tale tragically ends.

And for many, and I say many, they will not live happily ever after!
