The Illusion of Reality
By Shayne Hammond
God brings the dead to life, and He does it by "calling things that be not, as though they are".
Since the day we were born we were taught that we must face the facts. "You can't argue with reality".
If this is good advice, then Jesus was the craziest man that ever walked the planet.
What was wrong with that guy ? He just couldn't seem to accept reality.
He called water wine, He said Lazarus was only sleeping, when he was dead. He called a raging storm, peaceful and still. He told a cripple man to stand and walk. He told lepers to go show themselves to the priests, something only done when you are cleansed or healed. He told 10,000 hungry people to sit down so he could feed them with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish.
Either this guy was completely insane or a genius.
Lets face some facts.
The water became wine. Lazarus arose and came to life.
The storm became peaceful and still. The cripple stood, picked up his mat and walked home.
The lepers were healed as they went to show themselves to the priests.
The 10,000 hungry people were filled, leaving 12 baskets of leftovers.
Jesus knew the secret behind so called reality.
He knew the temporary nature of reality, and that the source of all reality comes from within the human spirit, and is released through thought, word and action.
Jesus, thought, spoke and acted according to His vision, according to His dream, according to His desire, not according to reality.
He was was never deceived by the illusion of reality.
Then He said " these things and more, shall ye do also".
Your reality is only as real or permanent, as the attention or focus you give it.
Think, speak, feel and act as though your dreams are either here or on their way, and watch your reality shift and change to match them.
How things are is temporary, subject to change.
What is eternal is you, God and the power to create any reality you desire. Rom 4:18
