‘The PARADIGM WAR‘ began in Eden.
We fell for a false reality.
We are still asleep.
“but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”
The inception, the implant, of the idea of man being inherently capable of determining “good and evil”, truth and error, real and unreal, began in the Garden of Eden.
The dream world that started with that incident has continued to this day.
We know this because the “top is still spinning“… because “mankind is still dying”.
IF man truly was created, as it states in this Genesis Account of reality, then HOW could that type of created being ever inherently have had an eternally absolute frame of reference upon which to base any such “determinations”.
Well, he couldn’t. Hence, the resulting “dream world” we are all still living in today.
These “KICKS” are the Seven Miraculous “BIG EVENTS” that are designed to shock this world out of this trance state and back into the “reality” that the Creator had created “in the beginning”.
The first BIG EVENT “KICK” has already occurred. It happened in 30 A.D. on Passover in Jerusalem when the Son of the Father-Creator died. This “KICK” awakened us to the reality of life after death… that “this world” is NOT the ultimate reality… that there is something outside of physical reality… and that the Creator has a PLAN to transform man-kind into god-kind beings that will be spiritual and eternal. This first “KICK” made that “transformation” possible by removing the eternal penalty of Death over man-kind for the mistake man-kind made in Eden of choosing a “dream world” PARADIGM over the Creator’s “real world” PARADIGM, when there was no logical reason to do so.
What we are involved in today is “The PARADIGM WAR” that began in Eden.
The GOOD NEWS is that we are now on the brink of experiencing the next BIG “KICK” which is declared in Leviticus 23:8 as Holyday 2.
We can know the character and impact of this “KICK” by studying the Old Testament TYPE for this BIG EVENT in Exodus 14, and we can know the timing of this “KICK” by studying the New Testament predictions in Mt 24:14 and Revelation 4 about something BIG to occur just AFTER the 7 Church Eras described in Revelation chapters 2 & 3, and just BEFORE the End-Time Great Tribulation events of the 7 Seals described in Revelation chapter 6.
By studying these Scriptures, we can see that the Old Testament TYPE of the miraculous deliverance of the ancient Israelites at the Red Sea foreshadows a similar miraculous deliverance of God’s Chosen People in the End Time so that they can finally fulfill the mission to become the Holy Nation, a Kingdom of Priests from all nations, and provide a very important witness about God’s Plan and Intent for man-kind BEFORE THE END of this “dream world”. This awesome “KICK” will prove the reality of CREATION and a CREATOR (Revelation 4), and will provide man-kind with another opportunity to accept the “reality” of the Creator – a “reality” that is the only way for all to live in cooperation, creativity and happiness, forever – the WAY of LOVE – the WAY of LIFE.
However, accepting this “reality” also involves accepting the “reality” of another being described by the Creator as “Your Adversary“. This supernatural being, also known as “Satan”, is recorded in Genesis as the one who “implanted” the “false reality” into man-kind’s consciousness in the Garden of Eden. This being’s attitude and activity is recorded in many Scriptures (Rev 12:9, 20:13; 2 Cor 4.4; Jn 12:31; Isa 14 and Ezek 28; Mt 4). This being has successfully convinced one-third of the other supernatural beings into accepting his version of “reality” – his “PARADIGM”.
So we can see from the above Scriptures that we are in the middle of an “ideological war” – “The PARADIGM WAR” – between The Creator and Satan. The Apostle Paul specifically warned us about this “spiritual war” in Ephesians 6, and how we should be preparing ourselves for this battle.
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore *, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, 15 and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints
Notice that the words “the schemes of the devil” are used in this account. We can see that this is a clear indication that the devil, Satan, has an opposing SCHEME – his own PARADIGM – that is opposed the Creator’s PARADIGM.
This is “The PARADIGM WAR” that we are in today!
We must be awakened and alert to this mental war over the “REALITY CONSTRUCT” by which we are to govern ourselves.
The Creator’s PARADIGM will lead to ETERNAL LIFE.
The Adversary’s PARADIGM will lead to ETERNAL DEATH.
The “TOTEM” (Helmet of Salvation) that we must use to determine “reality” is the Word of God.
This is the warning for those in The PARADIGM WAR who reject the “reality” determined by the Word of God totem:
44 “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
We must be ready to CHANGE OUR PARADIGM when the next “KICK” comes – HOLYDAY 2!
