WHAT WE FEAR HAS COME UPON US
The Hebrew Scriptures Book of Job, is often counted among the masterpieces of world literature. It is found in the third section of the canon known as the Ketuvim (“Writings”). Scholars generally agree that it was written between the 7th and 4th centuries BCE, with the 6th century BCE as the most likely period ... Around 400 years before Moses in a land east of Edam. The Pentateuch (first five books of Moses) would have been written after the time of the Patriarchs, so Job would be, by default, the oldest book included in the Bible collection. The theme is based on the eternal problem of unmerited suffering, and deals with Job's attempts to understand the sufferings that engulf him.
So, for this topic, we go directly to the Book of Job, verse 3:25:
"For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, And what I dreaded has happened to me."
Now, there is a huge metaphysical message here ... a deep esoteric meaning of great importance. This verse is dealing with the power of the subconscious Mind and its ability to bring forth into creative form all that you imprint onto it. The subconscious Mind answers your call, no matter good or bad, for it is non-judgmental and acts upon your desires every single time ... with every single thought. This is the power of creation. As a man thinks in his heart, it is done unto him. As a man thinketh, he is. These words come from not only the Biblical texts, but from the science of quantum physics and psychology. We now know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that ALL of our experiences in the physical realm, begin in Mind ... the realm of the unseen.
Whatever you consciously implant into your subconscious Mind from you conscious Mind, will be accepted. The subconscious Mind doesn't know the difference whether something is true, or is untrue. It is there to serve you. Whatever the conscious Mind (male) impregnates the subconscious Mind (female) with, a child (manifested thought) will be born. This is Universal Law. Cause and Effect. This is the creation process for all that is. You and I are co-Creators in this vast universe. We are connected through the Matrix of Consciousness (the Field) that connects everything as ONE. The story of Job highlights this process. Whatever he had thought about, came about.
As with all scripture, there are deeper meanings hidden beneath and beyond the surface stories that are being presented. The design of this type of writing always contains a Truth, and a lesson to be had. We must look beyond the ink and paper. Beyond the stories, fables, allegories, and myth if we are to learn the message that was intended. The message here, is that your thoughts create your reality.
Thought power is the key to creating your present reality. Everything you perceive in the physical world has its origin in the invisible, inner world of your thoughts and beliefs. To master your destiny, you must learn to control the nature of your dominant, habitual thoughts. By doing so you will be able to attract into your Life experience anything you desire with exact precision as you come to know the Truth that your thoughts create your reality.
For Every outside effect, there is an inner cause. Every effect you see in your outside or physical world has a very specific cause which has its origin in your inner or mental world of Mind. This is the essence of the power of thought. In other words, the conditions and circumstances of your Life are a result of your thoughts and beliefs. Every aspect of your Life, from the state of your finances to the state of your health and your relationships, is accurately revealing your thoughts and your beliefs. They are made in the image of Mind/God.
The creative and attractive power of any particular thought is determined by how often you have that thought, and by the strength of the FEELINGS or EMOTIONS associated with it. The more energy you give to a particular thought, the greater its power to attract its corresponding circumstance into your physical world. Where you attention goes, energy grows. When you focus on "bad" things/thinks, the subconscious Mind will bring them to fruition. The same process works for "good" things/thinks. Be very careful of your thoughts, for your reality will soon follow. Job's fearful thoughts, came upon him.
'There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so."
"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
Be transformed by the re-new-ing (right thinking) of your Mind. You have the power of the universe within you. You have the Kingdom of God within you. You have all that ever was, all that is, and all that will ever be ... right there inside of you. Use your creative power wisely, and for the benefit of all. Learn from the story of Job and his seemingly endless suffering.
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
Set your Mind in the right direction, and the better things you desire will be brought forth in your experience ... on the "Screen of Space." Whatever you think, you will project into your reality. In order to truly manifest the goodness that you desire, FEEL that thing, feel the EMOTIONS of that thing. You must have more than just a desire FOR it ... you must have a desire FROM it. As if it already exists. The subconscious Mind will act upon the vibratory thoughts and feelings that you present to it ... the universal language of vibration. No matter if it is currently true or not. Feel it as if it already is. Your imagination is the garden of Life. Plant your seeds wisely, and selectively.
Just a thought ...
