Getting High In Two Worlds


It may seem like a strange subject, but we all get high in two worlds. The beast in us is driven by our desire to be worldly minded, while the new man in us is driven by the desire to “keep my commandments…”

Rev 17:12  And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
Rev 17:13  These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

The beast in us is given strength and power by what is happening in the spiritual realm, so that we can see that whatever is bound in heaven is already bound in the earth. The spiritual man in us is dying daily to those things only to be daily reminded that we struggle and endure until the end if we have any hope of being “blessed and Holy is he that has part in that first resurrection…”

Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Rev 20:14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Rev 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Dying daily, we must be subject to letting ourselves be subservient to “thy will be done” and when we die, both physically and spiritually, we go to the grave. There will be a day, however, that that same grave will no longer bind us and we will be resurrected into the fullness of Jesus Christ.

This is the time; the time is at hand, that the Fire of the Word of God be mingled with brimstone and that lake of fire consumes everything in its path as we dwell in the consuming Fire.

In today’s study, I hope we can all walk away with a better understanding of what it is that drives our lives as demonstrated in the Word of God.


Aliens, Zombies and Bears! Oh My!


I’ll admit, there are no bears but there are plenty of aliens and zombies walking around. Have you ever noticed how man with His beast creates vast amounts of imaginative babblings, but when those same imaginations are compared to the Word of God, their true intent and nature are brought to light? Literally.

Let me explain what I am trying to convey with a few examples. I’ve lived out a few crazy ideas and bene through the process of having crazy times be used in my life in order for the Lord to bring me through that so that I could be in a position to worship Him in Spirit and Truth.


We all have heard about UFOs and some of us may have had desire to know more, but there comes a time when you see the miraculous way in which we came into existence.

Have aliens supplanted us here and watched us grow from afar? Rather, I would inject that it is God the Father and Jesus Christ who have given us all life and we indeed were supplanted, so I guess the “alien theorists” are on the right path depending on how you define the words.


What about zombies? In Hollywood, we have always been given an image of what it would be like to have this “walking dead” roaming around and devouring the flesh of anyone they can catch.

Christ said, “let the dead bury the dead”, so we literally see zombies everyday who do not even know that they are being driven through a plan that has been divine since it’s been put into play. We spiritually dead people everywhere.

Getting back to how this relates to the topic of today is that this is how I started thinking when I first came to understand the milk of the Word. I didn’t fully seperate, nor was I capable to do so, what it is to have leaven mixed with the whole lump.


Telephone Poles


I use to smoke marijuana daily. When I did that I would get high of course, and my mind would be re- shaped in how it dissimulated the information that was presented to it.  In other words, when I was high my mind was able to dump its baggage off for a moment and escape the “truths of the world” with those truths being whatever they are for each of us.

I was able to relax and forget all my worldly troubles.

One day, I was driving down a fairly long road while getting high, and I noticed a fairly old looking telephone pole leaning with the weight of the cables it was supporting. It struck me that as I looked at the other poles down the line they were all identical except they had not been broken and leaning. It was then that I saw the shape they held, a T. Being high, my brain focused in on this point.

Mind you, I was high, but I started to see Christ in everything on the road. The lines in the middle were shaped like a finger:







The trees I saw reminded me of me being a tree which God has grown.

I started to see Christ in a way that I never had and this was all while I was high. The focus that I am trying to make is that it had nothing to do with being high except that the high provided the means for my mind to be opened to some other thought processes which could not happen with my everyday mind and life happening.

The Lord used that moment to help me to be drawn to Him more, but it had nothing to do with being high and more to do with the Lord “meeting me at the well” while I yet lived in sin.

Once that door had been opened, the Lord used it to do away with my desire to be high on worldly lusts and to embrace the new mind that the Lord was introducing me to through His word.

I tell you all this information as a back drop to the rest of the study, because it is our very mind which must be being changed into the image of the Son of God.


We are all soldiers


The last few minutes, I have put some emphasis on my mind being opened and how all of our minds must be opened in order for us to begin our walk with the Lord.

Time and time again, we see in the scripture that man is shaped into his use and used as he or she fits in the plan of God. There are few indeed who realize that the elect of God are in a war which the Lord has caused to happen.

2Ti 2:3  Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
2Ti 2:4  No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

I often talk about being a soldier because as a young man, I use to be confronted with the aspect of joining the military to protect God and country. However, I now understand that I was indeed drafted but it is to a completely different type of war.

This war is fought in the hearts and minds of everyday people whom the Lord is working with. We are continually confronted with the battlefield of our mind in an effort to wear us down and a lot of times if we would just settle down and let the Lord do His work, we would better off mentally for doing so.

Right about now, you might be saying, “Steven, why are you so enamored with your mind?” The truth of the matter is, the Lord is very interested in just what is in my mind because this is where His battle between the doctrines of the world and the doctrines of Christ are battling. The end result will be love, but there will be bloodshed to get there.

1Jn 3:14  We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

1Jn 4:21  And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

I am asked by the world around me to love my country and go kill my brother who lives in another country. I am brothers with every man, woman and child I see, but my government insists on asking me to kill them.


High on World, High on Spirit


I am not sure how many are aware of it, but marijuana and hemp and outlawed in this “great” country of ours, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t around. Marijuana is worth more ounce per ounce than gold, and it is responsible for roughly half of all of the US’ inmates. This natural weed is big business.

I use to get high from it, and I use to worry about all the garbage that is told about how it affects you until as time passed and I hadn’t seen any of these symptoms in myself, I started to realize it was all a way for man to control one another. I honestly quit because the Lord said it was time to stop and no other reason. In and of myself, I couldn’t breathe without the Lord.

Anyhow, with marijuana I realized how big of a business marijuana was and why I could see why it is it was illegal. You just need to follow the money like anything else. So why am I even talking about this?

Well, I want to take everything that has been mentioned so far and bring it around full circle to the Word of God.

In our natural environment, marijuana is all over the planet and can be grown in 100s off different environments. There are 100s of uses for the hemp in industry, there are documented medical uses for it, and there have been zero reported deaths from it uses reported.

What does mankind do with what God has freely given them?

We make it illegal.

This is man’s wisdom. We take nature, make powerful drugs with it, and then sell it for huge profit and many side affect’s. We take what God had made and make it a federal and state crime to use.

…and I use this example to illustrate that this is exactly what we do spiritually with God’s word.

We take simple verses like:

1Ti 4:10  For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

1Ti 2:4  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

And we turn it into:

“Sinners will burn in hell for all eternity if they don’t get saved…”

We take what God had freely given all of us, and we abuse it in ways we will only know of when God is All in All and in most of us we never come to this knowledge in this life because we have another mind.

God’s word says it best in Timothy:

2Ti 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Ti 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Ti 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Ti 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Ti 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2Ti 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

There are three things I want to bring into focus with the above verses:

  1. The last days
  2. Houses with silly women
  3. Never have knowledge of the truth

Let’s reverse that:

  1. Never have knowledge of the truth
  2. Houses with silly women
  3. The last days

Where do we see in scripture examples of ever having or never having the knowledge of the truth:

1Ti 2:4  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth

2Ti 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Hos 4:1  Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

Rom 2:20  An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.
Rom 2:21  Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?

Heb 10:26  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

What is this “knowledge of truth” then? Among other things, it is us being given the truth that we are all in Christ, we are all brothers and we all must love one another as ourselves. For our flesh, it is just too much to ask but for the mind of God it is nothing.

Notice that in 2Ti 3 in verses 2 through 4 we are given descriptions of the types of things going on in the minds and hearts of those being talked about. I want you to pay close attention to when this is happening and what is happening to whom.

2Ti 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

2Ti 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

“For this sort…” everything we just described is “they which creep into houses”. The houses are US where God dwells and the WOMEN are led away with diverse lusts.

Who is the woman? We are, rather, the mind that is in us which is the mother of harlots.

Isn’t it clear that we are dealing with two minds battling for the land? Isn’t that what we saw earlier?

Hos 4:1  Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

In one part of our land, we have a soldier fighting tooth and nail to save this flesh or what will come to this and all flesh eventually.

We have one man who is gonna “choose” to fight and we have another man who knows we have nothing to do with being here except that we are told that this is now our war.

In other words, we have:

Old man saying “I choose” and the

New man says “The choice has already been made”

Ironically, it is the old man who has the youthful thinking of “life is so short; therefore, eat, drink and be merry”. However, it is the new man that has the mature thinking of “life is so short; therefore, cherish every second you have”.

All the while, these types of things are happening “in the last days”. I am sure everyone here is aware of what is meant by “in the last days” but if not I assure you it is not talking about the end of days as talked about in the modern church.

Act 2:17  And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

Heb 1:2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

2Pe 3:2  That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
2Pe 3:3  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

Jas 5:1  Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
Jas 5:2  Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
Jas 5:3  Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
Jas 5:4  Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
Jas 5:5  Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
Jas 5:6  Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
Jas 5:7  Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
Jas 5:8  Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

Clearly, there is more going on than just a simple few “last days” which have no days after them. The last days, scripturally speaking, is spiritual speak the start of something miraculous in our lives and the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ. We are in the “last days” and that has bene true for thousdands of years even though this seems like a huge contradiction to the natural man.

This is when Christ’s battle is brought forth to the forefronts of our minds and this is what happened with me when I use to get high.  I would actually love talking about God while being high as if I knew some “inside information”, but all the while I would doing something that was not expedient and pleased my flesh.

These last days are happening as a “last days” period of time in our life where we are seeing this war within us waged out. We are seeing the ends of the ages come upon the generations within us, and this is all just the beginning.

Have you ever noticed in Mike’s revelation series how the vials, plagues and trumpets are just the beginning of your walk with Christ? When you have or are going through these things and you can look back to see where you have come from, at this point you have just STARTED. In order for God to destroy the 200 thousand, thousand doctrines in our minds, this war must never end until those in who dwell in the fire BECOME the fire.

Isa 33:14  The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?
Isa 33:15  He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;




It is when we are sick of this world and the death it offers that we come to see that only life in Jesus Christ can sustain us forever. We can become soldiers for the ways of this world, in their various forms, or we can become soldiers of Christ in how we approach everything thought we have.

I use to get high and have a freeing of my mind about world matters which eventually lead me to realizing that what I had sown in the time dedicated to smoking some dead weed could somewhat be recouped if I was somehow able to become high on what God provides for me spiritually.

God gives us His spirit and we need to be conscious of what we are doing, saying and thinking when we are confronted with the things in our life. How we handle these things tells us how much we value or don’t value what God freely gives us.
