What’s Your Name

Life seems to be for most of us one long draining wrestling match, and we’re usually not the one coming out on top.
I wonder if innately built into (within) our frame work there is this lingering, haunting reoccurrence of thought that pricks us, (like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad) that there has to BE something more than just living with all that, that encompasses and then simply dying?

As I have already mentioned in a few other thoughts on my blog, I see all of us being born slaves, prisoners to what I am calling the ‘sin-matrix-imprinting’, and that imprinting expands to become a custom made fit for any and all, regardless of race, creed, color, gender or whatever.
There is no escape from its permeating and corrupting influences. For i.e. some dialog from the movie the Matrix between these two characters, Morpheus and Neo;
Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but its there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?The Matrix? Do you want to know what it is? The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work... when you go to church... when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. What truth? That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.

From what I think I am beginning to see in part, is as follows. The only way that the ‘sin-matrix-imprinting’ could be addressed is in a personal head on assault. The scriptures referee to the ‘Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent ones take it by force’.This violence was fully implemented when the Word became flesh like you and me, and the kicker was, it was not ever fully detected by the father of lies, for had he truly known, he would not have worked to see Jesus the son of man turned over to the killing machine called Rome.

Incognito, what a luscious word that is. Hidden as it were in the womb of a young virgin girl, the incarnation was about to come forth, and in so doing he Jesus, would usher in a way of escape (from our inherited imprinting) heretofore not possible. Wow!
It clearly spells out in the scriptures how, for this purpose the Son of God was manifested (in the flesh), that he might destroy the works of the devil.

At the core of our being, and I want to liken that to our DNA, there was made possible for the first time ever a living connection between God and man by and through the new birth a joining of himself to us, ‘he that is joined to the Lord is ONE spirit’.

Here’s the consternation, the rub that I see. This awareness of even remotely considering any other way (possibility) of looking at life, than which we have grown up believing has to be initiated by God’s spirit, and how He does this is as mysterious as the blowing, moving of the wind. Jesus himself implied those who were not only re-birthed into His family, but operate as God’s sons acted much like the winds movements. For a lack definitive words, lets use this, a whole new operating system has been inserted and the code is inseparable from that new DNA.
