A Deeper Look At Prayer

By Benjamin Raven Pressley

 

    We have a connection to our creator, really, whether we want to or not. The creator of all things didn’t just create everything and then abandon us to do as we will. Some people live that way and believe that is the case but a truly spiritual person knows an intimacy with something greater than themselves and cannot deny it. They feel his presence every time they are outdoors in nature or just about anytime they are overwhelmed by something greater than themselves. Anytime we are amazed, we are touching God, experiencing him…knowing him intimately, communicating with him, knowing his presence. It is not only my belief that you can do so but this is something we must nurture. A very important part of knowing and touching God is prayer. (more…)

It Really Is All About The Choices We Make

Image result for choicesPeople are quick to blame God for all the ills of the world or at very least say things like ‘Well if God is so loving why doesn’t he do something about [you fill in the blank]. The world is in the mess it is in because of all the bad choices the human race has made through time. And if we are honest our personal lives are the sum of the choices we have made. In this blog I want to consider the importance of choices. (more…)

Musings From The Rabbit Hole

Related imageBy Benjamin Raven

One has not lived, neither can one understand until they have climbed into the rabbit hole. And be prepared to fall, fall, fall for what may seem like forever. Your first rabbit hole you have already experienced when you were born as you were forced down a canal designed for what we call birth yet it is nothing more than forcing you into another reality. Whether you asked for it or not is irrelevant. It is only the first of many mergings of life and death.  (more…)

Who The Devil Is The Devil Anyway?

by Benjamin Raven Pressley

I think most spiritually minded people have some belief in spirits. Some people live in fear of the Devil like there is a devil behind every tree just waiting to pounce on them. Then there are some who don’t believe there is a devil at all. Both of these positions are equally flawed and dangerous. There is a lot of misunderstanding about who the devil is and what the extent of his power is for sure. To really answer that question we need to start by going back to a time before man and before there was an Earth . (more…)

What Really Matters

 

By Benjamin Raven Pressley

When it comes down to God and life and what we believe it really isn’t that complicated. I’m not going to pull any punches and what I am saying applies to anyone, anywhere, any denomination and whether you are a Christian or not it is still the truth. Don’t expect a list of do’s and don’t’s either. Those never work. They are like New Year’s resolutions. I am tired of sincere people who want to live for God that are rattled, confused and spiritually schizophrenic. It is time to unmask, decode and expose what is truth and what is error. And it isn’t about religion. Religion has historically kept the truth from people and sat on its ivory throne high above the people and used its interpretation of scriptures to rule the masses.

WINNING THE BATTLE FOR OUR MIND

 

By Benjamin Raven Pressley
Fear, sadness, even depression are the battles we all seem to fight on some level everyday of our lives. Sometimes it is worse from person to person and day to day. Sometimes there are legitimate medical reasons like chemical imbalance, malfunctioning glands like the thyroid and probably lots of others that can contribute to fear, sadness and depression. That being said though as human beings just trying to live must realize there is always a spiritual side to things, a spiritual warfare that contributes to these things. We may or may not can deal with the medical issues related to the problems we have but we can deal with the spiritual and mental issues that exasperate a situation.
To survive and be victorious over fear and sadness there are four areas we need to work on: (more…)

FAITH

FAITH

By Benjamin Raven Pressley

     I think most people when they think about faith they think of it being a religious thing and often use the word as a noun as in “My faith is such and such church”. But faith is so much more. You need not even be part of a certain religion to have faith. Faith is certainly spoke of and defined in various ways among these religions and most consider it integral and vital to their belief system. (more…)

Seriously, Did Jesus Really Exist?

 

 

Does history indeed record that Jesus actually lived? Is there evidence besides the Bible that he existed. How about we limit our eyewitness accounts to Hostile Non-Biblical Pagan Accounts?

“That They May Be One…”

By Benjamin Raven Pressley

 

The very word ‘COMMUNITY’ broken down into parts ‘COMM’ and ‘UNITY’ seems to even beckon us to come into unity. Why is this so difficult for the Body of Christ? If one answers this question honestly it has to be admitted that it is due to selfishness and pride.
The church did not start out this way. In fact it was not even born until they had come together in one mind and one accord and in one place (Acts 2:1-3)…. (more…)

How Does It All Fit Together?

By Benjamin Raven Pressley

Since the dawn of all creation, there has been a struggle in the ether to maintain a balance, the Great Balance. What is the ether of which I speak? The ether is that which is all about us and in every living thing. It is a vast invisible ocean that fills us all with life and connects us to the Creator. Within it there are often storms but it is always filled with the ripples caused by each created being’s choices good and evil and even those things that are basically neither good nor evil. The most peaceful and enlightened among us still send forth a steady ripple, an energy that stabilizes the instability in the ether. We are all connected. All we do affects every other thing. Our actions cause the greatest ripples of all but have no doubt our very thoughts also affect all living things and all creation. For all actions are preceded by thoughts. Potential actions present themselves every day to the courtroom of our minds to be tried by us, then we make our choices. It all begins with a thought. Some would say there are some things that affect our world more than others and it may seem so but the reality is every thought, every action, every choice has no less effect than another. How can it? We are all created and began as a thought in the Creator’s great mind. What is this ether?
