THE PLAYER MODEL

images-6

PLAYER MODEL:This is your first opportunity to find out “Who am I not?” You  are  not your  Infinite  I.  You  are  not the  one  who  is  choosing  the  wave frequencies from The Field and creating your experiences. You are not even infinite. Your body, mind, intellect, and everything associated with them are part of your holographic universe. They aren’t real, much less infinite. Your Infinite I is the “I Am,” and you are the “I think” part of the equation. If you can really get this at the beginning of…

THE HOLOGRAM

THE HOLOGRAM HOLOGRAM:How is “reality” created from The Field? Most  quantum  physicists  agree  it  is  a  very  similar  process  to  the  creation  of  a hologram. In other words, the universe we see is a “holographic universe.” “When we look at some of the scientific views of ‘reality’ that have tried to get down,  down, down to the nitty-gritty, we see at its ultimate level… that reality is not solid – it’s  mostly empty space – and whatever solidity it has seems more to resemble a hologram  picture rather than material,…

THE LIBRARY

images-1

LIBRARY:There  are three  other  doors in  the back  of the movie  theater  I haven’t mentioned. One has a sign saying, “Men’s Room;” another says “Ladies Room;” and above the third door is a sign saying, “Library,” and that door is never closed. In between groups, or as I began to realize the particular group I belonged to at the time wasn’t going to produce what they were offering and my membership was coming to an end, I would go into this Library and read, looking for new inspiration and hope.…

Corinthians-Servants of Christ

About this letter Corinth Corinth was an important city. It was on a very narrow section of land (called an ‘isthmus’) in the southern part of Greece. 1. It was the capital city of the region called Achaia. 2. It had two harbours. The harbour on the east coast was 4 miles (6 km) from the harbour on the west coast. Today a canal joins the two harbours. In Paul’s time, people pulled small boats across from one harbour to the other one. They dragged them on a kind of…

Paul-letter to the Romans

About Paul’s letter to the *Romans About the first Christians in Rome Rome was the most important city in the world at the time of Paul. It had a vast army. That army controlled all the countries that surround the Mediterranean Sea. So the rulers of Rome were extremely powerful and wealthy. They employed many people. Many slaves had to work in Rome. And Rome was also an important city for trade. Paul had not visited Rome at the time when he wrote this letter. Paul wrote most of his…

Acts-Good News for Everyone

About this book The writer Most people agree that Luke wrote Acts. Luke also wrote the third *Gospel. In Acts, he told how the good news about Jesus *Christ spread. It spread to the world beyond *Jerusalem. Luke was a *Gentile and he was a doctor (Colossians 4:14). He worked with Paul and he travelled with Paul (Philemon 1:24). Luke was very careful about what he wrote. He knew that some things were true. And he wrote only those things. At the beginning of his *Gospel, he wrote this. ‘You…

Jesus: John tells the Good News about Jesus

The author Most people agree that John, Jesus *disciple, wrote the 4th *Gospel. John’s father was called Zebedee. And John had a brother called James, who became also one of Jesus *disciples (Matthew 4:21; Mark 1:19-20; Luke 5:10). The family fished on Lake *Galilee. Zebedee owned a boat. He employed men to help with his business. John Jesus: Jesus called John and James: the ‘sons of thunder’. Thunder is the loud noise that we hear during a storm. Perhaps he gave them this name because they became angry quickly. For…

Luke-Good News

The author Luke wrote two books of the *New Testament (NT). Luke’s *Gospel tells the story of the life and work of Jesus. Luke’s second book, Acts, continues the story after Jesus went back to heaven. The two books amount to a quarter of the NT. This is even more than Paul wrote. Luke was a doctor (Colossians 4:14). He was often Paul’s companion in his travels. The book of Acts contains passages in which the author includes himself as a companion of Paul (‘we’ in Acts 16:10-17; 20:5-21:18; 27:1-28:16).…

Mark-Good News

About Mark *New Testament references A          The *disciples met in Jerusalem at the home of Mary, the mother of John Mark (Acts 12:12). B          Mark was a relative of Barnabas (Colossians 4:10). He went to help Paul and Barnabas on their first journey to *preach the good news (Acts 13:5). He turned back at Perga and he went home (Acts 13:13). Paul, therefore, refused to take him on the next journey. Mark then went with Barnabas to Cyprus (Acts 15:37-39). C         Mark was a ‘worker’ with Paul. Paul was in…

Matthew-Good News

About Matthew The author was a *Jewish Christian who wrote especially for *Jews. One early Christian writer said, ‘Matthew collected what Jesus taught in the *Hebrew language.’ This book contains much of what Jesus taught. So the early Christians gave Matthew’s name to the whole book. Matthew collected taxes, but he became one of Jesus’ 12 special friends (Matthew 9:9). Matthew did not write the first book about Jesus’ life. Mark wrote about Jesus first. And Matthew uses much of what Mark wrote. The Christian *church put Matthew’s book first…
