Why would one want to leave the government which they’ve chosen to serve (as a citizen) and choose to switch their allegience to a foreign government which has no track record for either success or failure in earth? Why would all the demonstrated benefits of citizenship in, say, the USA or the UK or Canada not be preferable to a citizenship of heaven? When the track record for health benefits, food stamps, education for free, housing for free and earned income credit for not working are calculated in to the equation, it’s easy to see why some one would not opt to serve a different government from the one they’ve become accustomed to working for. I’m talking about those few men and women who have that gnawing uneasy feeling inside of them that something’s not quite right with the system they’ve chosen to serve and work for and are looking for an alternative. Those are the people who I’m talking about. For myself, I cannot serve a master, lord, ruler, god, president, king, judge nor any organization, institution or group whether it be a government or kingdom or any other corpus/body of believers if that entity chooses to kill, steal and destroy. Once I awoke to the reality that there are organizations which masquerade as ‘christian’ while choosing to plunder their neighbor by force and that I was a member of such an occult organization, I chose to ‘come out of her’ and separate myself from her. That ‘her’ in my situation was the USA and all its subsidiary organizations. Why I have chosen to leave boils down to one thing, sin. Yes, for me it is sin to know what is wrong with the USA and to continue to support, uphold, defend or be a part of it. I cannot, I will not and I won’t. For those who still believe in the godly character of the United States and who choose to live by their tenets of belief based upon that, all I can say is I can only lead a horse to water, I cannot make them drink.
I remember a situation years ago when I had realized how damaging chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides & all the other ‘cides were. I was teaching others not to use chemicals on their land and to use only natural or organic products. One of my customers asked me who could fertilize and maintain their lawn naturally and I knew of no one whom I could recommend. That dilemma presented an opportunity which I could either ignore, pretend it’s not my problem or I could do something about it. Not believing in sloughing off my responsibilities to others, I chose to do something about the problem and started to fertilize and treat lawns without the use of toxic chemicals. That is a similar situation I’ve encountered today where a friend made a seemingly innocuous statement that most people today in the modern western world have no alternative but to (serve) rely upon the government of the USA to provide for them. I think there is an alternative but since I’ve not seen that and I’m not one to tell others to do something which I would not do myself, I decided to design, build and live in TheKingdomOfGodInEarthAsItIsInHeaven, or TKOGIEAIIIH. Having made a prototype of this alternative to being OF THE WORLD and only wanting to live IN THE WORLD without being (a part)OF THAT WORLD, I now present to you, the reader my version of the garden of Eden. I call it the land pi-tai system of land use. It’s my idea so I can call it what I want.
Like I said earlier, if I cannot verify the quality, reliability and longevity of something, I cannot recommend it. I have now been living without any of the (commonly) accepted ‘documents’ (pieces of paper) which ignorance has dictated are necessary and mandatory. Now that I realize it is not only possible but far simpler, less confusing and brings great peace to whoever will follow in the footsteps of the One, Yahuwshua. Welcome to my world.
Living in the garden of Eden is the closest thing I’ve come up with what it is like to live in TKOGIEAIIIH. My picture of what that looks like is similar to a food forest. Creating a food forest is not all that hard once you free your mind from much of the chemical paradigm we’ve been bombarded by. All plants, animals, insects and birds live symbiotically with each other. Even microbes like bacteria, fungus & viruses are beneficial. The problems begin when thoughts of death begin to emerge into the landscape. By fearing something so much that you want to kill it creates a reaction which comes back to haunt you. One example which many southern farmers are aware of is the imported fire ant. Millions of dollars were spent trying to eradicate this species of ant with poisons and none of it has worked. By contrast, years ago when I was first changing my thinking from the chemical way of life to the natural way, I observed the first native ant bed of harvester ants on the farm. By allowing the native ant colony to live, I noticed that all the fire ants within 250 – 500 ft. around the area disappeared. As the native ants began to come back, they outcompeted the imported fire ants. All of nature will balance itself out if we allow it and work with it to enhance rather than try to kill, steal & destroy it.
My urgency today is to try to explain on paper what I have drawn and like the saying goes, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. But, here goes anyway. The land pi-tai system which utilizes the principle of the vortex works by alternating cool areas of the land with hotter areas. These two meld themselves together into a continuous flow pattern across the landscape. Central to the pi-tai system is a narrowed down ‘neck’ which separates the warmer ‘pi’ areas with the trigger point for thermals and divides the cooler ‘tai’ areas at their closest point. This trigger is a bermed mound of dirt which doubles as both shelter and food storage as well as cooling and creating energy used on the farm.
I have wanted to write this for a long time now but was hindered by what, I am not sure.
While talking about the kingdom of God in earth, I was burdened by a burning question, namely, should I even consider that the kingdom of God should come to earth? Would it be advisable to think of what if/why should it/is it possible/could it be??? So many questions were thrown up in my face that it’s taken me this long to write down what has been going on for the last several months. I am now certain that yes, I should write this and yes, this discussion is something which most Christians and seekers of the truth have avoided for way too long. Why that is may be addressed in this article and then again, maybe not. :-O !?!?
Set your priorities straight/first things first:
What that means is this, Jesus began to preach about the kingdom of God in earth as soon as He returned from the 40 days and nights of temptation. Throughout his 3 years of ministry recorded in the New Testament, His theme of ‘seek first the kingdom of God in earth…’ was covered in myriads of different ways and explained in many parables. So, yes, I think I must be in good company by talking about this topic which Jesus was adamant about teaching to others. So, the next question in my mind was this: Doesn’t the Bible teach Christians that we are to look for the kingdom of God in heaven after we die/are caught up with Jesus in the air? Perhaps that is what your ‘501C-3 church'(a ‘church’ is defined as a 501C-3 when that organization chooses to be ‘determined'(judged) by the IRS giving jurisdiction/authority to that entity) is teaching you, but is that what the Scriptures teach? Did Jesus say to wait until you die before looking for the kingdom of God? Did He say the kingdom of God will not come until later? Or, did He say the kingdom of God is here now, ‘at hand’? Most biblical scholars and the rest of us ‘non-scholarly’ types know enough of the Bible to remember the parables Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God being here now. Once you look through the New Testament searching for references to the kingdom of God, you find that Jesus was constantly speaking of this and, in fact, His whole ministry was based upon teachings centered around the kingdom of God in earth as it is in heaven. I’m not going to go through an extensive list of all those references right now, perhaps that may come up in a future article but only time will tell. Right now, I want to talk about what The Kingdom Of God In Earth As It Is In Heaven or the ‘TKOGIEAIIIH’ as we like to call it in its shortened version looks like.
The TKOGIEAIIIH has to be independent and separate and self-sustainable from all other governments, corporations and bodies. It is a real place but it can only exist with or within real people as man and/or woman. It cannot be coupled to a dead, non-existent person or corpus/corporation. That ‘joining’ together of the dead man/corpus with a living soul/man creates a fiction known as person/persona/corporation which is dead. A man must ‘come out of her’ and be separate(d) from the ‘her’ which represents the whore sitting on top of the beast(Rev 14:6) in order to fully comprehend the significance of the TKOGIEAIIIH. When one (man/woman) chooses to seek first (foremost, preeminently, primarily, prioritized, principally) the kingdom of God in earth as it is in heaven, then, and only then can it be found. [Note: If you are looking for something, would you be able to find it if you do not know what it is you’re looking for nor would you be able to find it even if you stumbled over it, you wouldn’t know what it was] So, in summary, Seek first the kingdom of God in earth as it is in heaven and sell all that you have and buy it/trade for it/search it out. If you ask, you will receive; if you seek, you will find; if you knock, it will open unto you.
Now that I’ve explained what I’m looking for to you, allow me to explain the why of that. My whole life has centered around one thought: TRUTH That search for the truth has never been far from my thoughts from the very first memories I can recall. I have looked for truth in everything & everywhere from science to medicine, chemistry to physics, biology to religion to politics & government to, well, you name it, I’ve probably searched through that also. The bottom line is that everything and I do mean, everything, is a lie. Perhaps someone may tell me or show me something which is not a lie, at least, according to them, but I ask you this: “If that certain ‘something’ is authored by or associated with a lie, then can anything arising out of that association be considered ‘truth’?” Certainly not, how can it be that Jesus ‘associate’ with some thing/one that is a lie or a fiction? Put another way, “Can Christ be joined to Belial? God forbid.” We all know the answer to that question of course. No way! is the appropriate response. So, what are we left with? The corridor of truth begins to narrow substantially when we eliminate all the fictions posing as truth and the bottom line is: We do not need so many things we believe we do in order to live. One of the central fictions and perhaps it is, THE central fiction (or lie) that man has saddled him self with is the mammon issue. We have been sold a lie in believing that mammon is necessary in order to live. We have been told that we should work for money and provide for ???? for what? If we are working for something should it not be The Kingdom Of God In Earth As It Is In Heaven? Is there any other thing, organization, body, corpus or corporation worthy of our search? I am not aware of anything else if there is and I’ve been searching for a very long time.
Paul Bethke of His Holy Church made a statement which has forced me to focus on, as it turns out, an ever narrower way of life. His statement to me was that, ‘most people do not have any alternative to working for, in and being a part OF THE WORLD’. Because of that statement and the implied question behind it, I have decided to look for an alternative way. I have only found ONE way and it dovetails very nicely with THE truth and appears to embody (pun intended) the LIFE or CORPUS or BODY of Christ. I like to call it ‘the way, the truth and the life’. Perhaps I could call it TKOGIEAIIIH.
First, I had to identify what is needed to live. The short answer is 1.food 2.clothing 3.water 4.shelter. Some may say you need insurance or a savings account or a ‘stable’ government or guns or a walled city or…! I may be stepping out on a limb here but if my faith is in my Father in heaven providing for me and He has stated that I have freely received and all I need to do is freely give, then should my trust be in Him? Or should my trust be in my savings account or my job or my social security provided for by the father in D.C.?
Okay, what am I talking about here? I call it the land pi-tai system and I hope to be able to videotape the drawings which I’ve made which will provide a visual pictograph and perhaps, with someone more accomplished than I am with making movies, I will be able to demonstrate how this pi-tai system effectively protects the earth from tornadoes and damaging winds while providing for and supporting all who choose to live freely by coming out of her.
