Today, I hope to show you something different. Not necessarily new, but different. If you're familiar with the LGBTQ community, then you already know the importance of diversity. It challenges us to explore our humanity, and exchange ideas with others in ways that weren't possible before.
Now, I'm pretty sure you know by now that I am a Christian. Before you roll your eyes in disgust and jump to conclusions about this being another preachy sermon about the BIble says this or that about homosexuality, please hear me out. First of all, as a person I can tell you quite honestly that I am not like most people (you can ask anyone I know....lol). I admit, it took me many years to break out of my shell, but I'm finally glad I did. If I didn't I might not have done half things I often dreamt of doing. Sometimes, we need a gentle push in the right direction to get to where we need to be in life. In my particular case, it wasn't a gentle push but more like a shove, and left to figure things out on my own.
As I mentioned earlier, I have something to show you. You can do this from anywhere, at home, at work....time and place does not matter. All you need to do is trust what you see and hopefully you'll see exactly what I'm trying to point out to you.
Go look at yourself in the mirror.
What do you see?
Before you start worrying about where am I going with this, just relax and trust me. I never hurt anybody that didn't already have it coming to them! lol...
Jokes aside, look at yourself in the mirror. The very first thing you should notice is a complex living organism called a human being. At this point, we're not looking at the age, gender, or social status of this human being, we are simply observing (and perhaps admiring) who they are. The human body is a remarkable living organism. Given the right conditions, it can accomplish amazing things. Given the wrong conditions, it can accomplish terrible things too.
Look at yourself in the mirror. What exactly do you see?
If you looked at the news lately, there's a whole lot of hate going in places where hate shouldn't be anymore.
When these people go home and look themselves in the mirror, what do you think they see? Most likely, they probably see the same thing as you. A person, looking a certain way....and that would be pretty much it. At the end of the day, this person will go to bed with thoughts of how they spent their past day, maybe have some thoughts about plans for the next day and beyond....and then perhaps drift off and think about things from their past. Eventually, they might start to feel certain sensations from those memories and thoughts.
If we sum things up right there, we can clearly see that when we look in the mirror, we see a living organism that has a certain shape, size and colour, and has the ability to change the way they feel, based on certain conditions or circumstances.
Ultimately, we are a collection of cells experiencing moments in time. That's the very first thing anyone should see when they look at themselves in a mirror.
Now, did you know that there's a science at work that keeps that image you see in that mirror alive? Unless you've been living under a rock, scientists today have discovered some very interesting things about our bodies. For one, they've discovered that ultimately, we are holographic in nature, and that given the right conditions, our physical nature can live on for eternity! So then, what keeps us from living forever? Well, it's the "S" word.
Stress. You thought I was going to say "sin", but alas, not this time my dear friends!
Yes, stress kills. Without going into a long speech about the whole process, stress is the reason why cells in your body break down with age, to the point where they can no longer function as they were orginially designed to do. Since stress originates from the mind not being able to cope with a given situation presented to it, we can conclude that we become what we think, or what we focus our thoughts on.
For the most part, people spend the majority of their time stressing about survival. Not just keeping up with bills and making sure food is on the table, but worrying about health, sexuality, future plans are all things that most of us cram our minds with day in and day out, without ever considering what those thoughts are doing to our bodies. This goes on for years. Decades even. Then to make things worse, most people worry about their retirement or funeral plans. Who gets what when they die, what's to be done with property and assets, etc..and of course the money problem is thrown in for good measure.
Then one day, they end up looking themselves in a mirror, see a total mess, and wonder to themselves how did things ever get this way....and eventually struggle for a solution to these compounding problems. More stress. And then they die, someday.....but guaranteed, any happiness they had in their life while they were alive is mostly a fleeting memory and gone by the time they're on their death bed, usually in some kind of pain before they go off to never-never land.
Then the cycle repeats. Every person who ever lived goes through this experience.
And that's the offical story....that the establishment wants you to believe. You're born, you live out an existance for a time, and then bye bye, you're gone. Boring huh? Kind of sad if you ask me. But, wouldn't you know it, there's an alternative way to live! It costs nothing more than your time and ability to understand things for yourself. A small investment for a very large payout!....but, are you ready and prepared to accept the challenge?
Okay, so now that you got used to looking at yourself in a mirror, if you have a partner in a committed relationship, both of you stand in the mirror and look at yourselves. What do you see? If you followed along correctly, you should see not one, but two unique living organisms called human beings. Not only can these human beings interact with themselves, but they can do it between each other using a variety of ways to communicate. Touch, speech, non-verbal, just to name a few.
While you're both looking at each other in the mirror, I would like to present a couple of truths to you. From there, you'll need to do some deductive reasoning and some homework on your own. Nothing complicated, but very simple and it's common sense.
Truth #1: The world around you is something like a hologram. If you're not sure what that means, quite simply it means that everything around you is made and organized in such a way, that it would be as if you are living your life inside of a video game. If you watched movies like The Matrix, you can assume that the world you live in is a programmed reality. Everything happens for a reason. There are no such things as coincidences, as ALL events are predestined to occur (more on this another time)!
Truth #2: Your body is a hologram. If you're not sure what that means, think of it this way: you can modify your body not only by thoughts, but also with technology. You are like a digital character in a video game. Created by a programmer, and are therefore predictable in EVERY manner.
If you can accept these two truths, then you should be able to understand the concept of upgrades, or improvements to the original programming of the user in the game.
Now, if life is a game, or a programmed reality, then there must be something that explains how the rules of the game are played. Fortunately, we have such a rule book, and it's called The Bible. To find out why the Bible is THE rule book for life, please read our article about the discovery made by Ivan Panin. In short, the discovery was made that the 66 books of the King James Version (used to make all other translations and versions of the Bible) were written and structured in such a way that cannot be replicated, duplicated or forged by any process known to humans today!
Since the world around us is made up of code (see our series What Is Everything Made Of), we can conclude that there is a design and order to the world around us and within us. Just like with any machine, it usually comes with an instruction and maintenance manual so that the machinery can operate to its fullest capacity, and if things breakdown, how and where to get repair.
Look in the mirror again. It's getting very important now!
Just like most software programs or computing machines (including smartphones) that we know, they can be upgraded or patched with apps and such. Well, it's the same thing with The Bible. The human machine, regardless to age, gender and race is designed to be upgraded! That upgrade includes the ablity to:
- be exempt from sickness and death
- become immortal
- have regenerative and shape shifting abilities
- be able to exist in multiple places at the same time
- be able to time travel
- be able to break the limitations of the speed of light
- manipulate objects by your thoughts
- walk through solid objets
- levitate, including bipedal hydroplaning (walking on water)
- eat and drink without gaining weight
- and much more....see video How You Will Look In Heaven!
Quite impressive isn't it. What's the catch? You have to follow the rules it says you must live by in order to be eligible for the upgrade once it becomes available.
What rules? Well, as from what I can gather, there is but ONE important rule to follow:
Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
If you, as a single person looking in the mirror, contemplating this article and that one Bible quote you've just read, ask yourself: Is it worth it to keep living with stress and problems and eventually get sick, die and be buried OR, take the chance to folllow what Jesus said so that you can get your reward and treasure in heaven AND get to enjoy dual citizenship between Heaven and Earth, with a new body that will never get sick or persish, and do many wonderful and amazing things that no person alive on earth today or anytime in the future could ever promise you with.
All you have to do is follow Jesus. That's it, that's all. If you can do that honestly and truthfully, Jesus will send the Holy Spirit to guide you through your new adventures in life as a new creature with benefits that are literally out of this world!
If you are in a relationship, looking in the mirror with your partner after reading through all this, and fact checking things to see that indeed the truth is being told here, then ask yourself this very important question:
The person that is sitting or standing next to you looking in that mirror. Would you stand in their way of getting a system upgrade to their body that would cure them from all sickness and disease and let them live in peace and harmony for all eternity? I'm going to ask this differently; if you truly love the person you're partnered with, would you temporarily give up everything you own as a sacrifce to follow Jesus, so that you can get back everything you lost plus interest?
Look in the mirror again, what do you see? Do you still see things the same way, or differently somehow?
I'm going to follow this up with another article in the near future. But first, I need you to take the time to think about what you just read, and how it applies to you. How you answer will determine if you are a friend or foe to humanity, so stay tuned!
