Atomic Jesus Supernaturalist
The Soul, Humanism &Thought
Paul, née Saul of Tarsus, an apostle of G-d to the Gentiles, wrote:
"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through G-d to the pulling down of strong holds; casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of G-d and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ..." 2COR10:4-5
Bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ reflects deeper insight into the meaning of what the Christ-man intended to convey when He said, "Without me, you can do nothing." The Christ-man also said that He would send us His Spirit and that His Spirit would "lead you into all truth and show you things to come." In the world of men today, determination and courage are required to face the supernatural facts as they are written and embrace their meaning as it IS.
The inclination to downplay the super-nature of one's own Soul is always there. Misperceptions and outright lies common in every instance throughout a Soul's earthly experience warp the insight and twist the spiritual existence of every unenlightened Soul. The micro-macro physical insights of scientific investigations and the faux-enlightenment of man-made religion makes a mockery of authentic spiritual things.
Acceptance of the unequivocal, absolutely factual character of spiritual things begins in the process of thought. G-d says to his prophet Isaiah: "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts higher than your thoughts."
We are now 3000 years into the future; 3000 years-distant from prophet Isaiah. From where we are now it is possible to look back over the centuries and see how G-d guides the revelation of Himself to the people of planet Earth. Through Isaiah, supernatural-spiritual facts about the ways and the thoughts of G-d and man are declared. In His Christ-manifestation, G-d demonstrates the practicality of those facts. Finally, G-d's apostle Paul puts a sharp point to the inevitability of G-d's becoming all-in-all. Peace on earth. Goodwill toward men.
Souls-in-flesh who yearn for the righteousness of G-d are charged with bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. A courageous reading of the written facts leads to the conclusion that none of these supernatural actions can occur without G-d-in-Christ-by-His-Spirit leading the way. Following the Christ-man's leadership is simple but not simple-minded. If G-d had created the Soul-species to be anything less than it is, none of these things would matter because there would no capacity to imagine such things in the first place.
As it is, every Soul is faced with a quest which produces millions of fears, doubts, and questions. Unless-and-until the yearning Soul somehow finds the courage to accept the supernatural facts as they are, that Soul will continue to quest in the failing strength of its own dying flesh. These bodies of flesh grow old and die. The earth itself grows old and barren. The stars explode into darkness.
Eventually, G-d will re-create the heavens and the earth. Corruption and death caused by the misbegotten Knowledge of Good and Evil will be eradicated. The Soul will be relieved of the pain and confusion caused by the spiritual, supernatural powers of Evil and Death. Until then the spiritual foundations of our existence will remain hidden from those who refuse the offer of G-d's Help. Fact is, the seemingly impenetrable paradox of a Soul-existence on planet Earth has been completely solved and totally rectified in the human manifestation of the Christ-man, Jesus of Nazareth.
The plain fact is that Jesus of Nazareth actually does take great pleasure enlightening the processes of thought in a living Soul. "Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts." The quest for enlightenment begs the question: Who is willing to seize the opportunity for genuine enlightenment and relinquish the lies of the world, the corruption of flesh and the Evil of Satan? Unenlightened human thought will never think of a way to end its own vanity. The vanity of humanism will deceive millions of people until the Last Second of the Last Hour vanishes into Eternity.
