COME AND CROSS THE BRIDGE WITH ME

I know I challenge you at times to cross some bridges….and some of my blogs take you into strange perspectives, but today, this blog has 565 followers and counting!
I started writing about my crazy-Christian-belief-system a long time ago and it’s been an amazing journey.  So I just want to THANK YOU for coming along with me on my grand spiritual adventures.

From isolated wilderness living to world traveler; from a timid fundamental Christian to a trailblazing evangelist; I thank God he’s been there for me along the way.

To those brave souls who dialogue with me by posting comments; thank you for sharing heart to heart.  I choose challenging topics to get people to think and I‘m so happy to hear from you. I am learning from your wisdom too.
And if you’ve HIT THE  LIKE BUTTON even once, I want you to know you’ve made my day. The efforts in writing each post are worth it then! You’re part of MY TRIBE. 
I feel your hug, that pat on the back and it’s good.

I am sad. But tears are sliding down the cheeks of many people right now. They’ve been ravaged by recent tragedies; huge tornadoes, giant wildfires, and massive flooding. How does one accept the calamities that overtake us? What do you do after the tears?

Is Jesus Christ going to return? Will God destroy the world? Will only believers be saved? One of my blog fans wrote to me asking these very things. And they seem hard questions to answer but not if we check the original source – Jesus answered them!

Caribbean News Apr 22, 2017

Clashes of interest boil up like volcanos all over the world and why is this happening? The truth? It’s because national politics no longer focus on the problems. The truth is whole populations are still dying through war, starvation, and now even climate change. When will our politicians understand the truth? Our world is too small to fight over ideologies based on national greed.

I live in Canada. Do you know, when I visit the States the news on world events is not the same? It’s slanted. We met a young woman from Sweden the other day, and her news media gives another perspective on world events. In the last few years, we’ve traveled to Europe, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. In each country, the citizens are patriotically influenced by national patriotic fervor.

But it is all canned propaganda designed to release steam out of the pressure cooker our societies have become. The truth? Governments have less power than the major corporations who exist in each country. Because international corporations lobby their governments for one thing: to make more billions of dollars! Money is their god.

Fotosearch_k10149770For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.Matthew 13:15 NIV Bible

But take heart. Perilous times also point to positive transformations. Earth’s humanity is on the brink of revolutionary changes. Universal moral standards are finally being recognized. Can you feel it?

The character Soloman, in Dan Brown’s book The Lost Symbol, states it emphatically:

“Truth has power. And if we all gravitate toward similar ideas, maybe we do so because those ideas are true…written deep within us. And when we hear the truth, even if we don’t understand it, we feel that truth resonates within us…vibrating with our unconscious wisdom. Perhaps the truth is not learned by us, but rather, the truth is re-called…re-membered…-re-cognized…as that which is already inside us.”

In closing, I should warn you that unveiling the truth is never easy. Through out history every period of enlightenment has been accompanied by darkness pushing in opposition. Such are the laws of nature and balance and if we look at the darkness growing in the world today, we have to realize that this means there is equal light growing. 

We are on the verge of the truly great period of illumination and all of us, all of you, are profoundly blessed to be living through this pivotal moment in history.”

See, it’s not just me who feels this way. So don’t buy the lies you hear. Search for the story behind the stories you see on your national TV news. Let’s stick up for the truth.

 

I have hope in the humanity of the people on our planet. Because no matter what political or religious viewpoint he hold, we can still fill our world with light! And in your heart,  you the reader know what that looks like.

Around midnight one foggy evening, I tried to connect with the presence of God, as I stood on the edge of a bluff overlooking the Columbia River far below. Clouds covered the gorge and leveled themselves so that it seemed as though I could step out and walk upon the surface. My life also lay before me like a vast journey of undulating ups-and-downs, some joys yes, but lots of heartaches. Did I even want to play the game?

“Why am I here? What’s the purpose to life anyway?”  I whispered intently over the sea of grey. We all ask these age-old, mind-niggling questions at some point in our life. It was at this time I began a personal search for the elusive answers.

With perseverance, I discovered them quite unexpectedly, right where they were said to be: in the ancient writings of an old black Bible.

However, when I examined the passages with no preconceived ideas on what they were supposed to say, I found them bizarre and in such contrast to the standard beliefs of any denomination of Christianity that I knew at that time. Yet, I was young and idealistic enough to strip away all the religious terminology and put it into a contemporary context. The conclusions were only logical but yet simply amazing. (1)

The Celestial Proposal - from Chapter 4

The world’s best-selling book is still The Bible. And in the first chapter, it quotes God! “Let us make man in our image and likeness.” (2) I was so surprised that God is a title referring to more than one! There have to be others or why would God be talking to himself? I researched the original Hebrew and Chaldean writings and discovered that the English word God, is translated from the plural term Elohim. According to The New Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, it literally means “the powerful and Great Ones from above”.

God is a plural word for “Gods who do great things.”

Then from later chapters in the Bible, I read about three God-beings, symbolized in human terms by the words Father, Son, and Spirit. This concept also portrays God as being more than one!

The Celestial Proposal - Chapter 6 Image

So now, I use the term The Great Ones to remind myself that God is a collection of benevolent, celestial God-beings vastly more powerful and intelligent than what we can barely imagine. When you see God as a source of God-beings who have a special interest in our human race, then playing the Game of Life gets very interesting!

Especially when “they” want to adopt us, immortalize us, and make us progeny of the God Kind – you know, children of God?

We’re made in their image and likeness; made to look like them and to act like them. Now,  all we have to do is figure out the rules so we can win at playing the Game of Life!

Huffington Post/Richard Greene

“You think God’s an alien? You are weird!” That’s what they say to me when I share my belief in a Higher Power residing in outer space. But I think it’s funny that some of these same people believe in a God from heaven! I mean, what heaven are they talking about besides the space outside of our planet?

So far, space exploration has mapped over 3,000 exoplanets, and seven of them are orbiting a nearby star. These planets are warm enough that water and life as we know it would be conceivable (Astronomy/The Guardian). And oddly enough they are in the constellation of Aquarius. The new Astrological age has arrived!

Then there’s a whole new division in Science called exotheology. It’s a term that describes theological implications with the discovery of Extraterrestrial Intelligence. Because NASA says it’s just a matter of time before we discover the existence of intelligent life somewhere out there in the multitude of solar systems. Want to explore the possibilities? Check out Exoplanets.Nasa.Gov where you can practically walk the surfaces of these worlds yourself.

Yet all this doesn’t change my spiritual Christian beliefs in the least! And it need not change yours. Because you don’t have to read the bible in King James English anymore. I read it for space age contemporary meaning which makes it even more realistic and exciting!

If God and company (angels, elders, etc.) created intelligent beings on our planet, why wouldn’t they want to mentor their prodigy with celestial rules for acceptable behaviour. We’ve called it religion for thousands of years, but scripture says Jesus Christ came to write these celestial, moral laws in our hearts. Perhaps that’s why today some of us label it spirituality or enlightenment.

Even NASA is trying to reconcile the discovery of extraterrestrial life to humanity’s religious norms calling it the “the societal implications of astrobiology.” In 2014, NASA gave $1.1 million to the Center of Theological Inquiry, an organization rooted in Christian theology.

Did you know the Catholic Church is already preparing their worldwide followers for the very possibility of advanced intelligent life? Father Jose Funes is the current director of the Vatican Observatory (yes it’s had one for decades). “This Jesuit astronomer suggests the possibility of ‘brother extraterrestrials‘ poses no problem for Catholic theology.”

Extraterrestrial means outside of earth or its atmosphere. So I ask you, where else could God be from, but offside of earth in the heavens?

Fotosearch_k10149770"The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to mankind." 
Psalm 115:16NIV Bible

We are making a mess of our world both politically and environmentally. Will a time soon come when we have to ask a God from the heavens to SAVE US?

IS GOD AN EXTRATERRESTRIAL?

 

DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD AND EXTRATERRESTRIALS?


The Celestial Proposal: 
Our Invitation to Join the God Kind

 

Jane at Cathedral ChimneyThere ARE others like me! We’ve followed the logical path and climbed up to the summit of the mountain. We stand in the gap between religion and science and dare to see through to the Promised Land!

If you’re a Christian how do YOU reconcile the growing evidence of life outside our solar system? There’s even a new acronym for it called ETI or Extraterrestrial Intelligence. But our belief in God and alien beings are not contradictory! You just have to put the pieces of the puzzle together differently.

I used to be ridiculed for reading verses in the bible and taking them literally but with recent scientific discoveries, they NOW make more sense than ever before.

When we talk about a God in the highest of heavens, wanting to establish his Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven; then we’ve already accepted some kind of  Higher Intelligence existing out there. In today’s language, we call it outer space, or a far away galaxy. Christians have been praying about it in the Lord’s Prayer for 2000 years!

Fotosearch_k10149770Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Matthew 6:9-10 NIV Bible

If we believe that God sent his son Jesus Christ down from heaven to every nation under heaven and then ascended back into heaven, then we believe an (off-earth), alien presence has already been on this planet!

If we make Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour we are making a personal alliance with a race of God Beings – God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, an entity called Holy Spirit, and thousands upon thousands of the angels in heaven (or outerspace).

 

The Bible is full of references to angels (total count of 386)! By definition, an angel is a messenger from another realm. The Virgin Mary becomes pregnant after being visited by a messenger, an Angel called Gabriel. How could a virgin give birth– except by the modern process of in vitro fertilization or at least artificial insemination!

Fotosearch_k10149770“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Luke 1:34 NIV Bible

Mary names her baby Jesus, a name that means God saves. Later he becomes known as Jesus Christ but his last name is not Christ! This word means anointed with power from on high, or having a supernatural power.

Now if Jesus Christ is the Son of God–and was born of a virgin, then Jesus had to be conceived with male sperm from a father not from earth, but a heavenly Father. So isn’t it simpler to say:  Jesus Christ was part extraterrestrial?

Hey, I’m just talking in contemporary logic here! The fact that we can use modern terminology doesn’t negate any of our Christian beliefs. The Bible still stands and instructs us how to live in joy and peace. A Twenty-First Century interpretation of Christian terminology just makes it all the more real!

At least to me. What about you?
