I don't normally do this but I just wanted to say how grateful I am for the medicine YHUH gives me with His plant, Cannabis. I look forward to being able to grow and juice it some day as preventative medicine to aid my ECS and provide my body with cannabinoids to aid in the healing process. The circumstances in my life are burdensome in an emotional and physical way sometimes that I find are harder to bear and to stay looking at the Light in my life, that connection with HaShem, my ABBA. I smoke and consume Cannabis on a daily basis but I am not on any other medicines. On a rare occasion for me I'll reach for an Excedrine Tension headache bottle and have 2 and that's very rare. I don't drink, I used to when I was a much younger kid and didn't know about Cannabis. I don't smoke ciggarettes, and I used to but I quit in 08. The only other thing I reach for when I'm falling is the language I've been given and am learning because of Torah, Y'shoah, Jesus and I just cry out to YHUH in it.
If you are opposed to this plants legality you must understand that this plant is safer than the animal proteins we all eat on a daily basis in regards to the bodies immune system and its ability to prevent disease. The compounds in this plant are found in mothers milk, the receptors for its compounds are in the liver, the reproductive system, the brain, can aid in bone growth, can easily pass thru the blood brain barrier to quickly aid in the restoration of the brain after traumatic brain injury, will literally tell the cancer cells in your body to commit suicide all the while supporting the bodies normal cells. And I could go on. And on... And on... Many of you truly have no concept of just how important this demonized plant is and what it is capable of doing for humanity and this place on which we were given charge of to care for by our Creator. Many of you may never have ever heard that Cannabis was used in the anointing oil in the Scriptures. Or that it can aid the body in healing most if not all auto immune diseases, possibly even genetic diseases like the one I have. The very one that could take me from this place and although I would not mind leaving here and moving to my fathers house that has many mansions that if it were not so I would not tell you, there are many I do not wish to leave behind in the dark... So because I want to stay.. I use Cannabis!
So I've thought.. hm.. felt? known? understood? ugh.. sometimes its just to hard to find the right word. This has been pressing on my heart in a positive way for quite a while. As I've come to the Way, Torah, Y'shoah, Jesus, from a strange avenue.
See I was raised in a home with a father who was first and foremost concerned with being Christ-like and truly from a Hebraic context. I went to a Christian school, but it was only different in that they required a bible class and the teachers were believers... We didn't go to church all the time as often my pop wasn't really liked by pastors so I never received indoctrination there... then on to college and it was a baptist university where they again required a bible class and to go to the school church sometimes but that never stopped me from being the typical college student neck deep in what makes me and only me happy. Then I married an incredible man who was not religious at all but the most loving, kind and patient person I'd ever met... he had more fruit of the spirit then most Christians I knew. Still never went to church but occasionally and usually for christian religious holidays.
Don't get me wrong, I never doubted for a moment that there was a God, that He sent his Son, that there was a Spirit that held me close.. but it was only that... just a knowing... never did a thing about it. As my pop would say, "I never let it bother me much" lol.. I love my parents so much they are such a gift. I was also raised to be a patriot of America. I loved my country.. I didn't really know much about why I felt that either.. but that love of country is what lit the fire that burnt away all the dogmas of men and dropped me right in the lap of my loving Shepherd, Yahshoah, Y'shoah, Jesus, the Way, the Truth, the Life, my Torah. Strange right...lol..So I'm not going to expound on that part of my journey right now.. if you wanna know more just pop a comment below and I'll divulge.
But for now, the topic at hand is the concept of an eternal hell of fire and torment being a man made idea. I started thinking this after learning so much about the Paleo Hebrew Alefbeit via Eriktology on YouTube from Eric Bissell. It released me from worrying about all of those loved ones whom I thought were going to go to hell because they didn't subscribe to the Christian theology I understood before. I knew that as I read the ancient scriptures from before Y'shoah and the scriptures He used to teach his apostles, that I didn't see this horrible place spoken of. I read that people died and were gathered to their fathers... that after death there was no more consciousness. Even before the Paleo Hebrew study, I felt that the concept I knew of hell had to be a state of a spirit with in a person who had no connection to their Maker. I watched people live out what I saw as hell on earth. I saw a loving and merciful Creator who allowed his children to leave him or to even never find him whilst they lived but allowed their death to be the end of that.
Then today a friend of mine, that I know through my parents, who is observant of the Way, asked me a question. He said "I'm curious - if you care to share - what you meant by you no longer fear for your husbands eternal well being." I read this and started to think about how to answer. I let it sit a while and decided to look on YouTube for a video I'd watched before about the Christian concept of hell but couldn't find it. So I did a search for "christian conceptualization of hell" and found this link.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I read this. It is exactly what I was thinking and I wanted to share it with you all. I have looked at a couple other pages on this site and I realize the author seems to not understand Paul nor understand that Y'shoah is the Torah that Paul spoke of. I am grateful though for the page I found initially as it put my thoughts into words!
shalom vahavah echad!
peace and one love
