Welcome To The Supernaturalist Archives!
The audio content connected to the links displayed below is non-denominational, non-ritualistic, non-religious talk about God.
You may find these AudioFiles as refreshing as devotees of traditional "christianity"
may find them disturbing. Jesus of Nazareth overturned the conventions of mere
"religion." Disciples of Christ today should seek to do no
less. God is not religious. God is God.

Living in fear is no way to live; especially when it comes to knowing and saying things about God. The only person in this world to ever speak with absolute correctness about God is God Himself in the Person known as Jesus of Nazareth. All the rest of us labor in this earthly vineyard, tangled in the briers and the brambles. There's a Better Day coming but it ain't here yet. Speaking of Jesus takes courage and conviction...and Trust in God's ability to inspire one's speaking..."Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts."
Only God and God Alone knows how to "make peace" and relieve a living Soul from the ordinary, inevitable terrors endemic to these bodies of atomicflesh wherein our eternal Souls are presently ensconced.
Big bullies and blustery people claim "not to be afraid" of anything. But as time runs out in the present Dominion of the Earth, the supernatural facts which now inspire acts of terror are definitely bringing the supernatural battle-action of Good and Evil down to the ground. Many people remain in deep denial of the supernatural facts but their vehement denials have no effect upon the Facts themselves.
Facing the supernatural FACTS of existing as a living Soul in a body of decaying atomic flesh can be an uncomfortable, even traumatic experience. The phobias and the traumas of living as a living Soul on planet earth are inevitable. The Comfort of God's Spirit is certain.
Nothing exists without God's Support. God, by His Spirit is upholding the present Dominion of the Earth. Good and Evil exist in this Dominion. Choosing between the two involves the freedom of the liberty wherewith the Christ has set us free. Animals live by instinct. Human adults live by choice.
Saying the words, "Jesus is God Incarnate" and allowing the Mind and Heart of one's own Soul to strive with the tremendous implications of that statement is one of the most dramatic considerations that could ever be undertaken by anyone, anywhere, anytime.
The "desire" for perfection may not be so commonplace these days but it is, after all, an ordinary pursuit of any reasonable person. Desire for and attainment of "perfection" in this present world are two different things. "Perfection" is a supernatural state-of-being which once existed but remains now only as a memory in the Hearts and Minds of some people. The State of Perfection will eventually re-established by the Christ of God. In order to achieve that State, the LORD will "make all things new."
RELIGIOUS FOOLISHNESS!!! is how some people define all talk, reading, and writing about God, His Christ, and His Holy Spirit. But, "in Spirit and in Truth" there isn't really anything particularly "religious" about God. Jesus (God Incarnate) of Nazareth made a particular point of Indicting the leaders of "religion" in old Jerusalem. The particulars of that Indictment remain in force today.
The life of every Soul existing in this world today is upheld by God Alone. For evil or for good, every human creature now exists at God's Pleasure. Whether or not each human creature utilizes the Soul's supernatural powers to turn to God "in Spirit and in truth" is a matter of life and death between each Soul and God Alone. God says, "I am not willing that any should perish. Turn to me. I will turn to you."
Believing or not believing in "supernatural things" is an act of the will which produces consequences. Every choice we make comes with its own particular consequence. Small or great, we all must live and die with the consequences of the choices we make.
"The End of Time" considered from the spiritually historic perspective.
Q: How does a human being, i.e. a living Soul, know with certainty that God is real?
A: When you know you know then you know. "Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts."
"Dead works" is another spiritual term for ordinary hypocrisy. All human "righteousness" is like a bucket of filthy rags when compared to the Impeccable Righteousness of the Living God. A lot of worldly, man-pleasing "christianity" specializes in "works" which are mostly displays of holier-than-thou do-goodism.
Matthew 12:36 -- "Every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment."
Jesus of Nazareth says what He means and means what He says. He's got the juice to back it up, too.
Walking in the light of God's Enlightenment is basically joyful. Condemnation and accusation have become a big 'ol stumblingblock in the practice of ordinary, everyday "religious christianity." Get over it.
"I am not willing that any of you should perish. Turn to me and I will turn to you says the LORD of hosts."
Some "religious leaders" are deluded with their own silly sense of power. Trouble-trouble-mucho-mucho!!!!
One of the most important areas of the Newtestament report is the area of "supernatural actions" effected by The Christ. Changing water into wine without saying or doing anything obvious is no problem IF you know how. Jesus of Nazareth knows how. Period.
Highly intelligent, extremely rational, clear-and-free-thinking people often have more than a little difficulty embracing the concepts of absolute supernaturality associated with The Christ of God, a.k.a. Jesus of Nazareth.
Some people really do go out of their way to invent crazy reasons why evil does not exist. Some people (more than a few) say all the trouble in this old world is just a big misunderstanding. Days of misunderstanding are running out.
The ecumenical pronouncements of the so-called "christian community" in the United States of America fail to acknowledge the actual, supernatural facts of the Christ's supreme authority and power over all things in the heavens and in the earth. "The fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding."
The "church" isn't that friendly-looking old building down the street. The "church" is a living entity whose component parts are living Souls from all the Ages of all the Worlds...and almighty God is fitting them all together within the Being of Himself. Go figure...Jesus of Nazareth says, "Without me, you can do nothing." Isn't that conclusive enough for you? Does "nothing" mean "nothing" or not?
If God is so mighty and so perfect, why does He allow so much trouble to remain in this old world? It's a question asked by many modern adults that resembles, in effect, the whining of children; whining because they don't get what-they-want-when-they-want-it. Taking responsibility for one's own God-given freedom really is more that some are willing to bear.
Freedom. The freedom that God has bestowed upon the species known as "the living Soul" is a characteristic of God Himself. In the human experience, freedom is the great unknown quantity in all human behavior. You can never be sure of what another person might say or do until it's said and done. Some "christians" say there is no such thing as freewill. Others say that without freewill mankind is no better than an instinct-driven animal of the field. Who is correct? Consider the effect of the work that Jesus of Nazareth accomplished in this old world. In freedom, in Spirit and in truth, the effect of Christ's work is immeasurable. Before Jesus came and did what He did, evil spirits and cruel demons terrified the Souls of all men. Humankind was in a bondage of terror. The Christ of God broke the chains of that bondage. Using your measure of Freedom to learn more about the supernatural character and source of all "freedom" is a wise move. Make it.
The Still Small Voice of God (1kings19:12) has been saying "turn to me and I will turn to you" since the beginning of time. Do it!
Secret prayers made in the Name of God's Christ Jesus of Nazareth are oxygen for the Soul. Jesus the LORD Christ says, "Pray in secret." Without prayer in secret, suffocation, delusion, mayhem, and confusion are inevitable. You may think not but you are wrong if you do. Period.
All the denominational religiosity in "christianity" today serves only to confuse and delude many well-meaning people into believing the old Sixties b.s. of "I'm o.k. You're o.k." It was a lie then and it's a lie now. Excuse yourself and walk away. Wise up.
Old Satan is allowed a certain amount of leeway within the realm of the living Soul. Satan does what he can to make people believe that believing lies is smarter than believing Truth. "There's a sucker born every minute."
This mp3 file is a reminiscence of a man who had the discernment, courage, and wisdom to dedicate his whole life to God but hardly ever darkened the door of any man-made church-house.
The Sexy Sixties are momentarily revisited in this file, turning a sharp eye toward that "student/cultural revolution" to which many of today's intellectual elite allude in specious rationalization of "the revolution's benefits" while pointedly ignoring the ruination of human culture and character resulting from the philosophy of "tune in, turn on, drop out and if it feels good, do it."
Joy in the freedom of Christ; knowing that Jesus of Nazareth annulled the practice of worship in geographical places in His conversation with the Samaritan woman at Jacob's Well. Jesus of Nazareth paid the price for all of what the whole world now calls s-i-n. That little 3-letter word has been used to intimidate and condemn all kinds of human behavior. The wise path is the path that follows Christ. Doctrines, theologies, philosophies and religions of the man-made variety always change. God says "I change not." Believe it and live joyfully.
The most troubling thing about religion in this world today is that a lot of religious people believe their Doctrine or Dogma or Theology or Philosophy is absolutely correct and everyone else's is WRONG! Trouble is, there are so many doctrines, dogmas, theologies, and philosophies of religion, any reasonable person is bound to be put off. TheSupernaturalist is not about man-made doctrine. We are reporting what God Incarnate has said about Himself. Whatever you may decide about THAT is between You and Him.
1st John, chapter 3, verses 1 and 2: "Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not. Beloved now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."
The paradoxical character of existence on planet Earth gives a hint of the mostly invisible angels and demons inhabiting the present atmosphere. Light v. Darkness, Love v. Hate, Hot v. Cold, Pain v. Pleasure, In v. Out, Up v. Down, etc. You can say these paradoxically opposed phenomena are simply a "natural" part of the way things are and such things will never change. Admitting that living and dying are dual actions occurring simultaneously within a single moment of supernatural experience called "life" isn't something that too many people are prepared to admit. Failure to admit facts changes nothing except the character of the Soul who so fails.
Worship of God and fear of death. It takes nerves of steel to actually live as though God Incarnate is present here, now. The only way to get "nerves of steel" is to Trust that God Himself will develop them as needed. That takes Courage and guess what? God knows how to develop courage, too. In fact, God must do it all because only He knows how to get it done.. God says, "...without me you can do nothing."
Speaking against the false promotion of God's Will being done in modern organized "religion." God is not religious. God is God. God (yes, the Living God) knows precisely what is happening here on planet Earth. And God Knows, precisely, how to inspire His people and provide His people with what His people need here and now. By His Spirit, God generated one seed of human sperm in the womb of a young woman and fertilized the egg that produced the infant human male body that became Jesus of Nazareth. Believe it or not.
If there are two differing opinions today about what Jesus said and things Jesus did, whose opinion is correct? How is a person today supposed to distinguish between the fact and fiction in the tremendous volume of information surrounding the man, Jesus of Nazareth? Apostle Paul says, "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." The Greek words Paul used for "fear" and "trembling" are phobias and traumas. Religion in today's world does not give people accurate information about the spiritual warfare between Good and Evil happening in their own Souls now.
This mp3 file is the first link in the chain of events which developed into RADIOVOFDOTORG as it appears on the web today. That link was forged at this GoogleGroup. Some of the posters there are mentioned this mp3 file. One or two names of public persons, living and deceased, are also named. A recollection of the quite dramatic effect produced by the "ministry" of William Eugene Scott, Ph[ormerly] D[id].
Time is running out...into Eternity. What's Eternity? "From everlasting to everlasting..." That's what God says Eternity is. If you don't have enough poetry in your Soul to be impressed by the concision of that phrase, you need to work on that. This skeptical, cynical old cosmos of "modern thought" is fading away...one particle of electromagnetic energy at a time. Human desire is insatiable. Ancient Scripture tells it all.
More information about Ishmael and Isaac. It's critically important information that is essentially spiritual in character. More than a few people today just don't believe any of that "old testament stuff" has any bearing on events in this modern world. Ignorance is NOT bliss.
"Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts." That statement contains all that can presently be known (by mankind) about the means of God's Providence. Jesus of Nazareth later said, "Without me you can do nothing." It's all Meat off the same Bone...God's Spirit, sovereign and supreme, abiding now in the world of men, gettin' the Big Job done.
Your "living Soul" inhabits a body of decaying atomic flesh. Don't think so? Take a look at one of your baby-pictures and then look in the mirror and you'll see decay (a.k.a. Death) in action. Maybe you don't believe "the soul" exists. That's between you and God. Maybe you don't believe God exists. That's between you and God, too. Regeneration is the answer and that supernatural process is accomplished as referenced in the immediately preceding file. Believe it or not. It's your choice. It's doggone hard to believe, too. But if you have even an inkling that God really is God who walked and talked as a man named Jesus of Nazareth, regeneration could be happening to you. right now. It's your choice to believe it or not.. If you really want to get serious about regeneration, then learn how to pray properly. If you have a closet, use it. God Himself will join you there and show you the way "not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts." Get with the program.
What the media and most of the people in this world today want me (and maybe even you) to believe is that spiritual things are mostly unimportant, inconsequential, un-necessary, and not really germane to the business and purpose of a person's (a living Soul's) daily life. You can believe that if you want to but you might as well believe Up is Down while you're at it. Both propositions are equally false.
People see whatever they please in the shapes of the clouds and the arrangement of the stars. Personally speaking I see the constellation of stars known as Orion as a depiction of Christ drawing deadly aim against the head of that old Serpent, Lucifer. Wham! Satan is dead. This old world will be made into an entirely new creation without the troublesome evil of evil Prince Lucifer. Ahhh, very nice indeed.
Guilt and Fear are directly related to The Curse of Death. The Curse of Death is perfect. Everything in this world is dying. This is a world of living things that die. Hmm. God came down here and walked as a Man among men known as Jesus of Nazareth. He "allowed" Himself to be killed, dead-as-a-hammer, and then, by golly! He came back to life. No kidding! It really did happen. Your choice is to believe it or not. You think you're too tough to turn to Jesus? Fact is, you're probably not tough enough. Don't worry though. God is merciful. You'll see.
Information about Jesus of Nazareth is the most important information in the world, bar none. You'd think people would talk more about Jesus since Jesus is God Incarnate. Instead, lots of people pretend that Jesus is not The One that Jesus Himself says He Is. Not believing that God is God could be a surefire, one-way trip into the oblivion of Soul-destruction. Refer to Heb3:12
A brief description of what it's like to be "converted". Many people in today's world are suspicious and disdainful of religion. No one could ever be more disdainful than Yours Truly. Until God shined His Light into my withering Soul, I cared nothing at all about spiritual things.
"With God, there is no such thing as "time". Why keep time if you never die? Why keep time if you live forever? That's the main question. You can believe God doesn't exist if you want to. It's your choice. This present world is full of trouble, pain, love, and beauty. It's a paradoxical melting pot of Soul-experience that God Alone comprehends in its fullness. He's willing to share what He knows with anyone who will "turn to Him." As you might imagine, such a "turn" is much easier to contemplate than to actually accomplish. But it is NOT impossible.
Speaking of Jesus? Religious talk? Discussion of God-in-Christ? Oh please! Can't you just forget about "religion"? Can't you see what trouble "religion" is causing in today's troubled world? Can't you understand how much better off we'd all be if there were no more talk about "god"? People have been asking those very same questions since the beginning of time... Fact is, God knows how to have more "fun" than all of us put together. Wanna party with God? Get with God's Program. It's between you and Him how you get it done. GoForIt!
Speaking of Jesus? Why? It's embarrassing when somebody talks about Jesus of Nazareth? Don't you just hate it when you're out and having fun and then some cloudy old spoilsport tries to talk about "sin" and "Jesus" and "God"? It's so depressing. That's how Satan has kept many people distracted since the beginning of time... By employing the prevarications and denominational confusion of earthbound "religion" preached in your very face by a self-righteous do-gooder who says "he hates the sin but loves the sinner." Yeah, right. On Mars...
Speaking of Jesus in 44 seconds flat. God is God. You're not. Neither am I. That makes two of us.
There is a crisis of leadership all around the world today. When leaders of national governments stoop to referring to leaders of other nations as "Satan" then the crisis must be growing. Why does God allow such cruel foolishness to continue? It's not God allowing it. It's us...you and me and all the rest of us... We are all adults of consenting age who know what's "right" from what's "wrong". We don't need God to do what God has given us the strength to do for ourselves.
When virtue gets the dumb-down treatment and truth becomes "whatever feels right for you" then spiritual blowback is inevitable. Why? Because living Souls are essentially moral in character even if the character of some turns out to be immoral. A living Soul cannot exist for long without some form of allegiance to its own sense of timeless morality. If the Soul's allegiance gets caught in a web of illusory "values" and twisted "truths" things get ugly.
Salvation is the most personal and private of all possible human experience. God in Christ Alone is the Big Boss Man of all Salvation. There can always be a lot of theological argument about The Great Assertion of Christ's Sovereign Power and Authority. For as long as the concept of "time" exists as it does today, argument about Who Jesus Is will not cease. Argument about Salvation will not cease. But God is God and facts are facts. And where God is concerned, the facts don't change. Ever.
There no possible way to speak factually about the war in the Middle East without discussing the ages-long blood-feud between the sons of Ishmael and the sons of Isaac. That bloody feud is a product of the even older Knowledge of Good and Evil which long-ago corrupted the Soul of mankind and brought the Curse of Death down on the earth. Supernatural means "more natural." Facing the simple, supernatural facts is easier said than done. Leaders in today's world know what the Facts are, but to declare them plainly would be "politically incorrect." Grief abounds.
Speaking of Jesus. The almighty and eternal living God really DID make a Manifestation of Himself in this world and walked around as a Man among men. He didn't do it to show off. He did it because He loves us. He came down here to save YOUR LIFE from certain destruction. If you don't believe THAT, it ain't God's Problem. It's your Problem. Believe it or not. It really is that simple. Turn to Him.
More. Speaking of Jesus. Referring to Jesus' Sermon on The Mount and other places where Jesus God Incarnate emphasized the importance of our thoughts. Our "thoughts" are the essential Factor in our experience as living Souls in bodies of flesh. If "you are what you eat." Then even moreso, "you are what you think." Think about it and then act accordingly.
Speaking of Jesus means to speak of things as they are. Otherwise, discussions of "reality" must inevitably separate into different schools of attitudes, opinions, and beliefs. How many different ideas of "reality" are there in today's world? More than there were yesterday. Fewer than there will be tomorrow. The old Yeats poem entitled "The Second Coming" paints a picture of our world today...
Toward the end of this audiofile, I say that this particular file is not "for public consumption." I was mistaken about that.
There are two different meanings to the word o-r-d-a-i-n-e-d. 1. invested with ministerial or priestly functions. 2. fixed or established especially by order or command. Going by definition #2, the existence of every person alive on earth today has been "ordained" by God. Whatever we each make of the opportunity is a choice. The mindset of the secular cosmos is set to not choose God's Enlightenment. And so this old world grows darker by the day.
There is not a thing about anything or anyone that God does not know now. Period. There is joy in our agony. There is agony in our joy. One day things will be different but that day isn't here yet. We dream about perfection. The perfection of Christ is not religious. It is a way of living and being. We can't get there by ourselves. Jesus came down here to help us. "Put your hand in the Hand of the Man who stilled the water..."
Fact is if God were not upholding the electromagnetic fizz of the earth and its universe the whole thing (including ourselves) would collapse into what scientists now refer to as "the vacuum." Good luck with attempting to explain how it all hangs together by any other means than those described in the first few verses of the New Testament book called Hebrews. Imagine that!
How comes it to be that so many people don't believe that Jesus of Nazareth is God Incarnate? That's between them and Jesus. It's none of my business or yours either. God is God. God made a manifestation of Himself and walked around in old Jerusalem...a man among men. Most of everything else that happened 2000 years ago has been forgotten but Jesus of Nazareth is remembered like He happened day before yesterday. How does He do that? "Not by might. Not by power. But by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts."
God gave the Earth an Invocation to Prayer. "Our Father, which art in heaven..." is the beginning of that Invocation. Prayer takes place in Secret...in your closet...with the door shut...nobody but you and God. And by the way, remember that the Name of Jesus is a Secret Name. Nobody knows the Name of Jesus except Jesus Himself. It's right there...in The Revelation chapter 19. Read it for yourself.
In the fourth chapter of the fourth gospel Jesus of Nazareth meets a Samaritan woman at Jacob's Well in Samaria. The LORD of Eternity used this meeting to change the Order of Worship on planet earth. Just because He didn't make a big deal out of it does not diminish the importance of this Change. Stay tuned. More changes are on the way.
God displayed His almighty power to the old Prophet Elijah. Earthquake, Wind, and Fire. And then when it was all over, God helped old Elijah understand: "Hey, I'm not in the actions I perform. As far as you're concerned, I'm in that "still, small, voice" which you ignore more often than not. So what else is new? I manage to ignore that little voice at least 10 times a day. How about you?
Here's more information about the events witnessed by old Prophet Elijah: a great earthquake, a terrible wind, a raging fire. Could you stand your ground if all that was happening around you at once? Think about it. And while you think about it remember that all of your thoughts have been corrupted by the bogus nourishment from the Fruit of The Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil. And not only your thoughts but mine, too. In fact, all human thought has been so corrupted. The only cure comes from God: "Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts.
Can you be taken it by the gospel of Christ? Would you even want to be? Are you confusing the supernatural goodness of God in Christ with the temporal corruption of mere religion? You owe it to yourself to seriously consider those questions. Believing what other people say about Jesus is a common mistake made by more than a few people. You should consider becoming one of the few who don't make that common mistake.
People in this world have a lot of differing opinions about what "people who believe in Jesus" should do to prove their belief. That's wrong. 'Waaaaay wrong. Your judgment of me and my judgment of you will always be imperfect. No matter how much we know about one another, we can never know it all the way God does. Maybe you don't believe God exists. That's o.k. He knows you exist. That's all that matters.
How did theology become so confusing? Why does God allow so many different interpretations of Himself to exist? Differences make horse races. It's obvious God likes variety. The variety of God's Creation is more interesting when seen through the way, the truth, and the life of God in Christ. The Crusades are over. Jihadd has begun. Christian people are in the crosshairs. Why does God (the Almighty) allow such confusion?
When Jesus said "I am the way, I am the truth, I am the life," he was not making a statement of religion. Jesus of Nazareth is God Incarnate. God Incarnate is Jesus of Nazareth. Get used to it because it has always been a fact and the fact will never change. Jesus is LORD.
Jesus of Nazareth is God Incarnate. God Incarnate is Jesus of Nazareth. Thinking of and speaking of Almighty God as a Person is not a naturally occurring mode of thought and speech. Most people in today's world don't think of God as being a Person. In the new world to come there will be no doubt of God's Being as a Person; the pre-eminent and supreme First of All Persons. Relating to God as a Living Person is a choice. Once the choice is made and kept, God enters into the Soul's deepest schemes of thought and speech "not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts." Outward manifestations of God's Presence in the Soul often take surprising and unexpected form and are the highest possible form of evolution.
