What is meant by God Reality?

Allow me to start off in answering this question by presenting a passage from Romans Twelve: One through Eight

I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than you ought to think, but to think with sober judgement, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith; ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness.

 

What man did was set up his Empires to control the masses, to make it near impossible for members to come into the understanding of God Reality. His first fully errant move is to establish himself as King on earth, that others should bow to him, and obey him through the many, many, many rules and decrees he institutes through REligion. He then places himself on a throne. He is saying “Hey everybody, look at me! I am!”

He parades through the streets, and throngs of supporters sing, “Hail our King!” He stands before his subjects, and with his right hand waves to absolve or deify his own, or, he sentences one to death. Fanaticism? Excommunication? Abortion? Certainly not egalitarianism in Godwork.

Do you think I am exaggerating? I am going to be honest here, I find it offensive that any man, or group of men, set themselves up as sole representatives of the Word, having massacred millions in the name Religion, distorting God intent, by fashioning strange and inappropriate rituals and teachings that they have imposed on others. Good grief! I could tolerate this if these kept to themselves and did not intend world rule by infecting the masses with fatalistic dogma. But okay …  let’s look at it another way. Let’s dive deep into this passage from Romans, and more fully interpret God intent. Saint Paul begins the Book of Romans by saying: TO ALL WHO ARE IN ROME, BELOVED OF GOD, CALLED TO BE SAINTS: GRACE TO YOU AND PEACE FROM GOD OUR FATHER AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. 

 

Paul writes these words: Peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. This establishes Paul as a prophet, for, how else would Paul know what God is saying? Second, and hugely important, Paul presents God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ as LIVING – a living Entity. He is not in a sealed room like some Vatican vault hiding dossiers full of secret information, and He is not insulated in a castle, protected by a State in Religion. If you read the essays on SPIR: The Gospel of Thomas (Parts One and Two), he is hanging on a tree waiting for you to pick and eat (Gifts of the Spirit), but if you believe that you are not permitted this without first following the rules and decrees of another, or a group of men wearing funny hats, expensive robes and shiny bling, who say to others that you must “walk this way” … instead of walk THE WAY, according to the Word of God, then I guess you have a rather large obstacle in your way. It’s called enslavement … and I can just hear God in Exodus 9.1 saying, LET MY PEOPLE GO, THAT THEY MIGHT SERVE ME! I wonder if God is doing the pendulum swing. After all, prophesy is God and man ongoing.

Yeshua said to him, “I AM THE LIVING GOD, The Way and The Truth and The Life; no man comes to my Father but by me alone.” Aramaic Bible in Plain English JOHN 14.6

I am the LIVING God.
 Patriarch? Vicar? Where did these titles comes from? I read … prophecy (prophesy), ministering, teaching, exhorting, giving, leading, and compassion. Paul was an apostle, a messenger (from the Greek apostolos, meaning messenger). He was a prophet and a minister, a teacher, exhorter, giver, leader, and he was compassionate. In truth, Paul was no ordinary guy. He was not ordinary because he was called into the extra-extraordinary(see ll Corinthians 12.2). Paul was of the angelic, for, it takes God’s messengers (from the Greek angelos, meaning messenger) to do Godwork. But lets digress for a moment and see what happened. Paul says, “I fell to the ground and heard a voice say to me, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?’ ” What had Paul done that he was told this from the Lord? At first read, according to his own words, Paul testifies before the people in the temple that he “persecuted this Way, to the death” …  One might think Paul actually led those of the Way to prison, where they were executed. I don’t believe Paul murdered humans. An educated man among his people, devout in his Religion, he likely had a respected position in his world. The Romans believed in their gods, the Jews believed in their God, and the Samaritans their God, and so on. With this, there is no proof that Paul actually persecuted the human flesh of those in the Way, but he did persecute the Lord. How? To start, one needs to understand the Spiritual Language inherent in Scripture, and the truth of the matter is that few understand the Spiritual Language. If anyone approaches God’s Word with any thing other than pure intent and yearning, there is a very high chance of misinterpretation. God’s Word says … Love the Lord your God with all of thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. This is the first commandment. Mark 20.30 (other sources: Deuteronomy, Luke and Matthew). Along with the willingness to serve in His Name, this is also what is meant by celibacy and virginity. This is a very simple and perfect example of Spiritual Language. Paul’s words in the temple were a confession. Basically, what he is saying is: I wed myself to the wrong life. And in doing so, I fell into a bed of prejudice and malpractice. I persecuted you, Lord, by leading myself and others to spiritual death. I bound others into the teachings of my Religion, and I sent them to a prison of no Spiritual Life, denying Spiritual Gifts.

To further understand the message, Acts 7.58 says: And they laid their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul ( to stone Stephen). Is this a sign? Is God saying: These garments I lay at your feet to demonstrate the Way? Is this his first sign in the calling out of Saul that he might become Paul, prophet apostle to Christ the Way? A shedding of the garments of the old? Is this religious bed infested with bugs of the righteous elite, a wayward, disingenuous, unloving, ungodly pack of males prostituting their ignorant doctrine on poor Stephen, murdering an angel of the Lord? Yes, they murdered an angel of the Lord, and they continue to do so. And this is God Reality.
