DO YOU KNOW HOW SPECIAL YOU ARE

, by Levi Ben Rubin

The fiery ball now sinks into the sea over the horizon. Only shadows of the wing-flapping seagulls protruded from the yellow and red canvas. Painter’s hand now suspended for the eye caught the last orangey rim of the setting sun. There it is… swallowed by waves. Sailboats now rush to the shore and dock at the local harbor.

Two lost souls somewhere ramble streets of a big city… lost in their dreams. Their dreams will meet some day, but before they do, hopeful search for a companion, lover and friend, will go on.

Boats have a harbor and our endless companion the sun rises and bows. It’s humble majesty cares not if you praise it or abase it. It is and it travels; so it seems. We travel we move and we go somewhere. But the path is not beaten nor yet hardened with the treading feet; although man’s attempts—partially successful—could not firm it, nor say, ‘that’s it;’ those that did; sunk ever deeper into a quagmire of empty definitions grasping for a nearby dry grass and loose crackling twigs.

The sky changes colors from blue to emerald, from orange to red. Stars stick like a glue to the firmament, but do they indeed? Perhaps we move with them in the same direction. No repose and no rest. The engine of all things keeps turning the axles of life.

Everything swirls on the axles of life so graciously bestowed upon us the children of the hidden God. His face man wants to behold and gaze upon His silhouette, but either his gaze is faulty or there is nothing to behold, but only feel and ponder upon?

I feel life and its gentle caressing. It beckons me closer to look into its secrets, saying, “Search me out and never stop until you find.”  I’m on a quest from time long ago, before instance was formed and measured with clocks invented by us with gears and springs and those turning arms. Each time you look at its face; it changes moods from early to late. It signals and woos, waves ‘hello’ and waves ‘goodbye.’ But we return to its round face with admiration until the eye can see no more. The nagging and urging time does not stop, it passes on.

But there is hope. What do we know? There must be a code that we must crack for it’s been given to us to seek, finally find and then change our lives. We tweak computers to suit our needs; our whims and wishes are satisfied… but are they indeed? Perhaps we dig the wrong hole in that old beaten and well-trodden path. Perhaps there is a path yet undiscovered hardly walked on but by the chosen few. This path awaits your search for the truth. This path awaits the special YOU.

How special you are only God knows, but also I do. How precious you are only He knows, but I also want to know what hinders you. Show me your feathers with which you fly; certainly you are an angel but in disguise.

How lonely you are only you know. Dissatisfied with frivolous chats, exchanges of words void of any meaning? Nonetheless, you keep on chatting away, mercilessly beating down the ticking clock. You chat away your precious life as the sun sets lower behind the clouds and sinks into the ocean on the horizon, which now came closer into the purview of your unexplored life. The curtain is drawn on the empty show and that lonely distant path remains untrodden. Why have you not let me pin those wings on you and make you fly? Why do you chose those dreary corridors, those smelly alleys of that lonely life?  

Those two rambling souls have finally met their hearts embraced each other; they chatted away their lives too; their bones are buried in some lost tomb.

The thrill is gone BB King sings. The thrill is gone the bluesman exclaims. All that remains is the old chat we once wasted on thrills that don’t last at all.

But there are thrills unlimited. I know them well for I bathe in them. As I write these words I hold out hope for some, but sorrow for others who’ve chosen a path that ends in regrets. My only comfort is this precious knowledge that some can’t change the garb of a tare, the field or the good seed. As for the last I know where I go and what I contain is life divine; time has arrived to stop throwing pearls before … (you know). Alas, lest they trample them down and turn on you in disgust. Although you meant well, yet was misconstrued; no one cared to comb through your phrases; dig out the gold; discover the plenty; adorn their minds with jewels of light. They ran into burrows dug with their paws to hide their eyes from too much light.

The truth is found on the tip of your nose where your reading glasses sit. It sits on the tip of your wet tongue. Don’t aimlessly spit it out, but let it slide gently off your tongue and heal those hormones-driven rambling souls still lost in the sinews and bones of their fragile frames.

There is more. Much more than you would ever know. Search engines of the World Wide Web are not the ones you should hit “go;” they’ll take you for a senseless spin. Turn the engine of your own device. Seek after life that is much fuller, much deeper, more meaningful and far beyond the now.

What you seek is looking at you now staring in your face. Because you are one of the unique ones I’ve been drawn to you by the hand divine. That’s why we met and communicate. You are special and most honored because you’re being introduced to the beyond and most sublime. Don’t miss your turn when it knocks on your door, but open it wide and with a welcome smile.

MIRACLES' ANATOMY

, by Levi Ben Rubin

The inner workings of miracles

Miracles can be explained and obtained because the Bible presents us with many examples of circumstances in which miracles took place. It is worthwhile to study the milieu in which miracles happen.

1. Not all miracles work as a result of faith. I have seen too many miracles without any faith. Those who experienced them were utterly shocked. 

A. Signs and wonders happen for a witness.

B. To reach a sinner (God sees the heart) bringing him or her to repentance. One is God's son or daughter but in a lost state so a miracle opens their eyes to their true belonging and heavenly identity. 

C. To confirm anointing - God's choice of a vessel. Jesus said, (...) believe because of the works themselves (John 14:11). 

2. Melting and surrender. There are mechanisms which God created. Simple humbling of the pride of life touches His heart, e.g., Hezekiah, King Ahab or Nineveh. 

A. Praise and worship are the two mechanisms that can bring one to a state of surrender. Praise may bring surrender provided that it is indeed true praise, and not mere song singing. God is enthroned upon the praises of Israel (Psalms 22:3).

B. Worship is like giving up territory one imagined to have possessed or even owned. Worship means to bow low before the Lord, the lower one goes the more of Him becomes present until the lines get crossed and one enters His holy corridors. 

C. Abandonment in worship can bring ecstasy as that of the fifty prophets (under Samuel) and the fifty sons of the prophets. 

D. This sort of worship brings changes. Power of God comes only to change anything old into something new. When there is no will to change anything and one is unwilling to let go one will be only irritated by the "too loud praise" or "too emotional worship." 

3. Bible teaching does not carry the spiritual presence like worship does. Teaching is for the intellect.

A. If you are after only the intellect, because you want to be smarter, more knowledgeable, wiser, more important; (and God forbid) to show off then no matter how much you would like to experience a miracle it will not happen. Intellect is intellect for your brain; and something spiritual deals with your spirit.   

B. The spiritual realm can be easily confused with feelings of the human soul. When the gratification of feelings in any possible way is being only sought then it all comes down to gratified emotions, exalted emotions, and happy feelings. This can happen through religion, dancing, parties, eating drinking, joking, sex and playing; these have nothing to do with the spiritual realm of worship. 

C.  Those who are too intellectual are dry in another area. The Living Waters cannot flow when one constantly defines things, accepts one thing and rejects another. 

D. Those who are simple and openhearted receive miracles at the point of their need. I have seen most of these miracles. 

In closing

Sometimes, when people are taught to believe and they release their faith they receive something similar to a psychosomatic miracle; like a temporary loss of pain. But the status quo all too often returns. The higher way is to make room for God's faith through the humbling of the pride of this life.

GOD BUT MY OWN WAY

, by Levi Ben Rubin

[Matthew 18:3] “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven." - Jesus.

Obstinate people will never experience the supernatural. The disease they carry is not only a set of unchangeable beliefs but also pride of being a Christian. People pick and choose a preacher whom to praise and even own, but when that preacher is yielded to the Holy Spirit and changes horses in mid stream then this God who just came out of your box is not the kind of God you want. 

A proud Christian, (I have met too many already), assumes that he or she knows best and such only seeks to feed that pride all the more.   

There was once the fist time for a Catholic Christian; and the very first time for a Lutheran, Baptist or pentecostal. There is always a new beginning for everything. The unwillingness to switch and change grieves the Holy Spirit one aspires to know and be led of. 

[Amos 7:3] The LORD changed His mind about this. “It shall not be,” said the LORD.

No one can know the Holy Spirit with fixed attitudes "my way" because God's Spirit does not even come near such person. Before we can talk about the grieving of the Holy Spirit we must address His nearness first. If one is not able to give up one's disappointment after what one eagerly expected then one is stuck in self. The self handles itself like as if it is the only king in the entire Universe. So this self-king can't lose time and cannot ever be disappointed, but if it is it quickly seeks vindication. The one who has caused this disappointment must be then punished. Therefore, quite subconsciously, people punish the one who brought them high and closer to God and has spoiled them. Once self gets hooked on something it will feed itself like a glutton who eats and vomits and eats some more. The food has lost all taste, but the glutton keeps on eating anyway. Try to stop it. You can't.  

1. Inflexibility belongs to the old bones and sinews and not to children. 

2. Slow adaptability bypasses opportunities

A strange thing

Ego and pride dance together the tango, but only the tango and no other dance. Musicians stuff their instruments with pride and worship them as well as their mediocre abilities. (Mediocre because there are abilities beyond your imagination, so don't limit yourself by putting pride behind your playing. Take that guitar out of beach, fire and girls scene and into God's house and just for Him.) With such puffed up instruments one cannot praise and worship God for He does not accept such offerings; and like the one of Cain He keep on rejecting them. But the strange thing is that one keeps on worshiping this idol and you can't change that, but if you try you will be viewed as one that insults the beloved idol. 

[Matthew 11:17] ‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.’

A spiritual person is flexible and adaptable while the inflexible and stiff is only fleshly, self-defined and slow to learn anything new. Hey, I would even dare to say that such does the desires of the dead and stuck in time unclean spirits. Some have demons. They may not be possessed by them, but they may possess demons and do what those demons want. They are not in their own clear mind, but are pressed to do the wishes of their ancestors' national, religious or their family traditions, addictions and habits.  

[Romans 8:14] For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

Not those who are led of the letter but rather of the Spirit. Letter kills; Spirit makes alive. 

God has time and He plans more meetings in surprising places, but when one is led of the Spirit it is the Spirit that changes streets and turns corners. So, either you follow Him or follow that which dictates or orders your behavior. Demons cried in the presence of the Great Liberator Jesus; and they still cry today. People bind others because they are bound up themselves. Only the free can create freedom for others.  

Worship

Only in true worship we are able to surrender because we melt and give up our stubborn will. But when the tango couple (ego and pride) will not budge He won't either.

IMAGINE ETERNAL FIRE

, by Levi Ben Rubin


We know of Chernobyl, Ukraine and now Fukushima, Japan.

Japan's nuclear watchdog has said the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is facing a new "emergency" caused by a build-up of radioactive groundwater.

A barrier built to contain the water has already been breached, the Nuclear Regulatory Authority warned.

This means the amount of contaminated water seeping into the Pacific Ocean could accelerate rapidly, it said.


WHAT DOES ATOM REPRESENT?

Man got excited about splitting atom, and then thought that he harnessed its power without any foresight as to the possible malfunctions, aging and eventual corrosion of all nuclear reactors. Now, not only Chernobyl (two words "cherno" black or dark "byl" was or past) or Fukushima (sounds like the widely used vulgar word fuk+u.), but also US aging nuclear facilities entered the final stages of human folly. 

All activated nuclear combinations stay active forever; they never die. The fire burns indefinitely. Nuclear waste is not a dead matter, but very much active. The Creator who made it all gave man little understanding and knowledge, but man chose foolishness instead of wisdom. 

It is like this: God gave us authority over this planet, understanding and knowledge of the components this earth is made of. As custodians we cannot get only fragmented understanding or fragmented knowledge and run with them. Each fragment points towards the complete picture, so when we start something but cannot finish; it is deemed to us as foolishness. Hence these words of Jesus: 

[Luke 14:28-30] For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? 29 Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’

[Matthew 7:26] Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.

Understanding absorbs knowledge and practiced knowledge makes one wise. Wisdom is not understanding or knowledge, but the very handling of both.   

This came to you for free.    

Atomic reaction is perpetual and it represents eternity. It speaks of our unwise or wise choices. If you split an atom then you have to live with it or die from it. If you do not know how to undo what you have done and turn your folly into wisdom then do not act on the given understanding and knowledge at all. It's better that way.

Only a wise person is longsighted and sees beyond minutes, hours and days; he sees timeless eternity. 

Attached to self humans are attached to limited matter creatures, unmerciful and uncaring. They are like King Ahab who upon hearing about the destruction of his family tree after his death (1Kings 21:29). Ahab did not care about his posterity.   

Atoms are everywhere in God's creation. Elijah's fire was an atomic incineration of the sacrifice, science confirmed it.

Atom is eternal and it never dies. No one is able to destroy atom but atom can destroys us, but look further at the human folly. Man invented cremation that utterly annihilates human DNA; that's how much people hate God.

HELL & CREMATION

[Matthew 10:27-28 What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell * (γέεννα the place of the future punishment call “Gehenna” or “Gehenna) of fire”. 

* This was originally the valley of Hinnom, south of Jerusalem, where the filth and dead animals of the city were cast down to and burned.

A purposely cremated corpse loses its mirror counterpart, which is the soul.

Principalities and powers of darkness or of wickedness are mirror counterparts of a governing body down below on earth. Apostle Paul in Romans 13:1 clearly states that God establishes all governments on earth. When their wickedness becomes full (Gen. 15:16) then that principality is replaced with another and then the new mirror counterpart above is also created. Hence we have this verse: [Ephesians 6:12] For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Paul was not confused, but we can easily get confused when we are not established in the oneness of God and His absolute sovereignty over His entire creation therefore also in logic. Anything logical cleaves back to the One thus it becomes logical, one, no longer fragmented.

Therefore Paul adds this (Eph. 6:15) and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. This is not the gospel of war is it? Why feet?

[Isaiah 52:7] "How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace…" — not war, struggle or aggression.

Synchronicity 
Please don't skip over. Apply your faculty of cognizance even if you have to force yourself, but if that does not work then pray to God for wisdom.

Romans 3:15 & 17  "Their feet are swift to shed blood. (…) And the path of peace they have not known."

Enoch walked with God. He walked with the feet shod with the message (gospel) of peace and God took him.

Blessed are the peacemakers (vs. war-makers) for they shall be called sons of God.

WAR-MAKERS vs. PEACEMAKERS
 
Why do I bring this here? 

There are those who use authority for warlike selfish purposes and those who think not only about their own little selves but also care about those after them. 

For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God (Rom. 13:1), it refers to Daniel 10:13; But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia.

When a change of authority begins to take place the angel Michael is the one God uses on earth to establish new governing body, replacing the old with a new. That principality below has a mirror image above; hence it is God who establishes them through His angels.

The man in linen (priestly ephod Dan. 10:5) could not come to David being withstood or retained by the already set up by God new authority, which was Medo-Persia. Therefore even the man in linen (Jesus) had to be subjected to this authority for He has always been subject to the will of the Father (John 5:19; 30) who 'is greater than I' - Jesus said (John 14:28). This pattern is indeed eternal, which Jesus later evidenced when He arrived in the Rome occupied Palestine about 600 years later.

END OF AUTHORITIES & START OF NEW


Having said so and having painted the background for our understanding of mirror images; by the same token human soul is the spiritual DNA. Just as when any local authority is destroyed or replaced and its counter-spiritual image above is also, so it is with the soul. 

Therefore, the hell of which Jesus spoke is that instant destruction of soul with * timeless fire.

*Timeless cannot be measured even with seconds intervals. 

When corruption is full a change must come in many a fashion, cataclysmic or through a man-caused war. Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed in a cataclysmic way or through an earthquake, or people died from boulders falling down from heaven.

[Genesis 15:16] Then in the fourth generation they will return here, for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet complete.

True repentance holds destruction at bay and it can even stop it forever. All God is waiting for is SHOOV, "Return to Me! I am Your Maker and I want you back!"

God's mercies are boundless and are everlasting and atom is just a symbol of it. God's fire annihilates anything in existence on both sides, spiritual and physical as if it never existed.

"… rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell …" 


If you still don't understand hell and what it is then please read this book today.
   
Any soul can be destroyed and become null and void as if it never were. Its physical counterpart the human DNA can also be destroyed but already in the earthly fire. Humans have reached the highest temperatures ever known before with which all DNA is destroyed. Now, just think about you. Is there anything precious about you and your unique DNA? If you are well you would think YES, but of you are not well then you'd say PERHAPS... Does God want your body to be unrecognizable after resurrection? Are you the true owner of your temple? Think for a moment. If God took Enoch and Elijah alive and Philip the Evangelist (Book of Acts) was physically transported by God's Spirit then our bodies have much more meaning and importance than previously known. 

It takes 90 minutes of constant heat 1000° C (1832° F) to destroy all organic matter including human DNA.   
        
We do not know yet the maximum temperature fire can produce on this planet.


Highest Temperature Ever Created By Man, 7.2 Trillion Degrees, Seen At Brookhaven Atom Smasher

 A giant atom-smashing racetrack of sorts has just broken a Guinness World Record by reaching the highest man-made temperature ever recorded, scientists announced Monday (June 25).

How hot? 250,000 times hotter than the center of the sun.

This scorching achievement happened inside the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), which is a 2.4-mile (3.9 kilometers) underground track where particles smash into one another under conditions that existed about a millionth of a second after the Big Bang.

The new feat, at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, N.Y., occurred when gold nuclei (the positively charged part of the atom made of protons and neutrons) were sent speeding around RHIC at near light-speed until they crashed into each other. When the ions collide, the enormous energy released is so intense it melts the neutrons and protons inside the gold nuclei into their constituent parts, namely quarks and gluons. [Album: Behind the Scenes at RHIC]

This soup of quarks and gluons formed nearly friction-free primordial plasma thought to resemble the stuff that filled the universe just after the Big Bang created it some 13.7 billion years ago. (This matter would have cooled and condensed to form the protons and neutrons that make up the matter here today.)

RHIC physicists have measured the temperature of this quark-gluon plasma, finding it reaches around 7.2 trillion degrees Fahrenheit (4 trillion degrees Celsius).

Hottest Temperature Ever Made By Humans? 'Subatomic Soup' Is About 9.9 Trillion Degrees, CERN Scientists Speculate

The Huffington Post  |  By Jacqueline Howard Posted: 08/14/2012 5:24 pm Updated: 08/14/2012

The Large Hadron Collider scientists at CERN claim to have created the hottest man-made temperature ever from smashing together lead ions to create a sizzling hot 'subatomic soup'; a plasma comprised of quarks and gluons. The final measurement could end up at about 5.5 trillion degrees Celsius (9.9 trillion degrees Fahrenheit). That's hot.

The physicists presented their findings Monday at the Quark Matter 2012 International Conference in Washington D.C., Nature reported.

Physicists for years have been aiming to better understand what the universe was like in its early, early infancy -- and researchers suggest such secrets are hidden in hot, hot temperatures like the 'soup' the CERN scientists have created.

"We do have now the tools in place to really experiment with it," Jurgen Schukraft, a physicist at the CERN physics lab in Geneva, told LiveScience, "and figure out precisely what kind of stuff this really is and why it has these extraordinary properties."

A super-hot soup of similar proportions has been studied before. Scientists at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York were recently awarded the Guinness World Record for reaching a record-breaking 4 trillion degrees Celsius (7.2 trillion degrees Fahrenheit) inside the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC).

"We seek to explore the subtle interplay of particles and forces that transformed the QGP [quark-gluon plasma] of the early universe into the matter that makes up our world today," Samuel Aronson, director of Brookhaven National Laboratory, said in a written statement.

Two experiments at the RHIC are actually working with collisions of gold ions to map out the way in which a quark–gluon plasma morphs into a normal gas made of hadrons, according to Nature.

WISDOM FOR FREE

, by Levi Ben Rubin

The Gospel According To Levi Ben Rubin 


Chapter 1

1. It is not what you don’t have that concerns you but that which you imagine that you have for we own nothing. It is better to think this way.

2. Self seeks gratification so it draws to itself stuff by which self defines itself.   

3. Wisdom is the practice of an acquired through understanding knowledge.
 

4. A lack of wisdom is a lack of understanding that did not absorb any knowledge.
 

5. There is knowledge that liberates and knowledge that binds; check each fruit and then choose again.
 

6. When gods compete for a following they are but mortals. 

7. When a mortal chooses a god his mortality is certain. But when the Almighty chooses you than He is after your life to make it even better.
 

8. Religion needs a repetitious observance without which it could not sustain itself nor exist. 

9. Religion is no God and God is nonreligious. 

10. Organized and listed beliefs in God keep man back from knowing God. 

11. Theology can't ever define God; it is human illusion. 

12. Fighting over who's right and who's wrong because of a belief is like fighting over a dead chicken a car ran over. "My chicken wasn't so flat." 

13. The Creator can define you but you His creation can't define the Creator. 

14. God's creation is His extension and His extensions point and draw back to the source.  
 

15. There is no God without people and no people without God.  

16. The God consciousness belongs to humans, but humans void of the Creator are as empty drums.

17. A nonexistent intelligence has nothing to proclaim or study. 

18. Before man was, God was, but after God made man His creature lost an appetite for his Maker and developed an appetite but only for himself. 

19. Nothing cannot contain nothing; if there is no God then why there is something at all?

20. Self-identity can be strengthened and overinflated until it blows up and is no more.

21. Jesus was the physical mirror image of the Father while He was still on earth. If you made Jesus your God then He is no longer the way to someone greater than He.


[John 14:28] You heard that I said to you, ‘I go away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced because I go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.

22. Jesus was self-nullified, but those who are not; need only a fleshly god. 

23. If you compete with the Jew over gods then you are a miserable loser for the only One God (AHAD) has no competition.
 

24. A liberated soul enjoys peace, but a bound up soul knows only the prison of too many definitions and speculations. 

25. One can keep on proclaiming until one believes in his or her own proclamation, but that proclamation must be endlessly repeated in order to ring true; otherwise it will succumb to the Truth's swaying power and be no more. 

26. Like a lie that is being repeated until it is assumed that 'it must be true;' so it is with those compelled many to proclaim something that keeps on eluding them. 

27. Each time the statue of Dagon (Philistine god) was set in it's place he fell again, but not before the Ark of the Covenant, but before God's covenant with the Jew. 

28. The magic of faith is a magic of illusion, for anything man-made eludes. Faith is a gift divine; it arrives at the point of need; it sits on a throne especially prepared for this most glorious royalty.

29. Truth is the universal permanency, anything that challenges it with anything assumed to be truer will have to keep up that challenge indefinitely, but at the end the one Truth wins. 


30. Truth is permanent, even the eternal standard of existence. Anything that pretends to be true must keep on pretending as long as it has a stage to perform on. Once that stage corrodes the players fall and injure themselves.
 

31. Wars over gods and their worship went on for millennia. Fools can’t drink from a filled up with falsehood cup. Overbearing self-driven ambition only attracts foolishness.

32. Wisdom can't dwell with inflexible people for when the challenge of logic presents itself their foolishiness wins. 
 
33. If you were forced into a religious observance by sword or a fear of hell then you are not pleasing to God. Perhaps you pleased a mere mortal.

34. If you have yielded your mind to an organized by man religion then you have relaxed your brain too much.

35. If you have accepted a nonsensical dogma over a sense making understanding then you have swallowed only patriotism and loyalty rather than the Truth.
