Author’s Journey

Born Again

I am eternal. Welcome to HeavenlyRealms.com. Authentic children of God stand out from all others. They are the only ones drawn to the Spirit of light and passionately striving to align themselves with the Father while living under the grace of Christ, proclaiming holy justice as a beautiful work of art.

HeavenlyRealms.com exists by the overflow of my revival.  1st Peter compels me to evaluate and articulate my personal journey from contempt to eternal submission. I do so as a humble veteran of Spiritual Warfare in spite of my standing imperfections. This Internet location is my scratchpad containing a history of inspiring artifacts that are used to help develop the journal you are presently reading.

My faith is complex and holistically interwoven. You should not presume that it might collapse like a house of cards.  No, rather let it show that faith is really not blind, for blind faith is mostly myth.

I’m pretty sure that none of us is omniscient or all-knowing. For this reason all people necessarily operate under the influence of faith as an imperative enabler. Allow me to restate, everyone lives by faith.  This is a great common denominator of all humanity. I happen to believe that this is by artistic design. As I see it anybody who attacks faith by its virtue openly exposes their ignorance and indecisiveness. Speaking as a former atheist, I know these arguments against religious faith are underscored in operational defiance. Atheism is a power play, plain and simple. And apparently it is not an escape from faith.

Likewise, following Christ is my power play and for good reason. Do not subscribe to any notions that suggest Reason and Faith are mutually exclusive as some will argue. My faith stands over pillars of reason. Always be prepared, says the apostle Peter, to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.

Faith is an enabler. Fearing it is somewhat irrational. Jesus Christ has an open door policy and enthusiastic faith provides an exit ramp from atheism should anyone desire his blessings and spiritual fruits. As I continue journaling why I have received Jesus Christ into my life, let me stop here and tell you how you can do the same.

Believing in Christ Jesus is no more difficult than making an attitude adjustment or choosing a different view. It is that simple.  This I have proved. If bowing down to the Lord requires hard scientific proof, this means you will only believe by force, an obvious definition of character.

The fact is, proof is always debatable. Science cannot prove anything in the supernatural realm. We have been misled if we believe that scientific progress concludes the argument concerning God and we are misled if we assume intellects are unified on this subject.  Evidence is subjective.

Trusting Holy Scripture is as easy as knowing who your parents are without demanding a DNA test when there is no need to be afraid of being wrong.  Consider your reasoning carefully.  Concerning quality of life there is a clear cut differentiation. Christ amplifies spiritual fruit while atheism deprives us of it.  Priorities and agendas differ phenomenally between these approaches.

So my roots in Spiritual Warfare begin here, knowing that it is not humanly possible to prove God’s existence ( or non-existence ) and identity but faith is my enabler.  Every one of us is human, and indeed imperfect. Through the ugliness of my own iniquity, I perceive and shall partake in this beauty that is within my grasp, the Lord’s way. And this is reason enough for anyone.  Atheism demands suppression, a suppression I can no longer justify.  Life is too precious.

Romans 1:16-20

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew then to the Gentile.  For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed–a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “the righteous will live by faith.”  The wrath from God is being revealed from heaven against all the godless and wicked people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–His eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

Spiritual Warfare

Life and death are much more than the sciences can comprehend. Since birth we have been called. So now I join the ranks of fellow veterans into spiritual battle holding that relevance nurtures trust; trust nurtures faith; faith nurtures obedience, and obedience nurtures the gift of encouragement.

Atheism is the faithful rejection of God and successive weakening of moral unity and integrity. I am convinced therefore that atheism is an issue of authority, an immediate power play in favor of personal sovereignty. Enter the sidelines of Spiritual Warfare. Here most are lukewarm as the world demonstrates truth neither hot nor cold. See Revelations concerning the Church of Laodicea.

Most people do not dive deeply into atheism. It is far too dark and ugly. We tend to find our comfort zone. Deep atheism is not comfortable for most, this again I believe is by design. We might reach a pinnacle point to remember that LOVE is our greatest proposition. Love is greater than life itself. The absolute absence of love, including love for oneself, will cause a person to self-destruct. The purpose of every person is founded in Love so adjust your attitude accordingly, partake in the light, experience it and spread it.

I love life now more than ever. Based on my present situation, some might not recognize a drastic awakening but rest assured I am constantly changing. Jesus, here I am at war, in Spiritual Warfare, comparing my way against your holy Word, our baseline.
