THE SECRET LAW OF ATTRACTION
THE SECRET LAW OF ATTRACTION - A FALSE REALITY OF A CONCEPTUAL MANNER

There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed apart from the Lord's will.(1) Honest scales and balances are from the Lord; all the weights in the bag are of His making.(2) Despite what others may tell you... you cannot mentally attract or think your way to claiming victory, success, power, or influence. Nor can you attract personal property or possessions. What you come to know as inspirational guidance, direction and influence is learned through your life's past and present circumstances and experience. How you allow your life experience to motivate and cultivate your destiny is a personal free will choice.
In God's sovereignty life is a divine trip filled with wonder and circumstance that He ordained and knew we would accomplish before time itself became a physical reality. In His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. Does not the ear test words as the tongue tastes food? Is not wisdom found among the aged Does not long life bring understanding? To God belong wisdom and power: counsel and understanding are His. What He tears down cannot be rebuilt; the man He imprisons cannot be released. If He holds back the waters, there is drought; if He lets them loose, they devastate the land. To Him belong strength and victory; both deceived and deceiver are His. He leads counselors away stripped and makes fools of judges. He takes off the shackles put on by kings and ties a loincloth around their waist. He leads priests away stripped and overthrows men long established. He silences the lips of trusted advisers and takes away the discernment of elders. He pours contempt on nobles and disarms the mighty. He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings deep shadows into the light. He makes nations great, and destroys them; He enlarges nations, and disperses them. He deprives the leaders of the earth of their reason; He sends them wandering through a trackless waste. They grope in darkness with no light; He makes them stagger like drunkards.(3)
We are the sum total of our circumstances and events in life (motive), unless we realize the spiritual significance behind the sum total of our life events (growth). We are a product of our circumstances as well as our choices. God placed those circumstances in order before time itself so that all of humanity would be reconciled unto Him. God did not cause humanity to sin. We are each held responsible for our sin as well as our reaction to the sin imposed upon us. God knew what our reaction to our life's circumstances would be. He knew those of us who would take the path of Cain instead of the path of Abel. He knew if we would be one to retain our path of mental and physical experiences as knowledge to achieve our future eternal salvation or our future doom. Everything that happens within our life time is an opportunity to show who and what we are in spirit and in truth.
Despite God's omnipresent knowledge He still endowed us, His children, with the potential to change. We always retain our free will choice in life. While some may choose the path of Cain, there are others that cleave to the Father of all creation, God himself. This may seem foreign to most of humanity but it was not foreign to God when He created us. We choose our path in life according to our choices, what we choose is our choice. If these statements seem repetitive they are meant to be so in order to over ride mental denial of personal will.
The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out.(4) Due to the path of evil resistance, and the path of Godly influence we are a product of our environment unless we choose to change our environment. We can limit ourselves with the path of self interest, or we can delve into the path of divine providence. It is all a matter of personal and willful choice that will ultimately determine our outcome, not only in this present life but in our future eternal glory. How can one say He is right or He is wrong without the guidance of Biblical law and God's wisdom? To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are His.(5)
The Bible doesn't change, humanity does. The Biblical law within the context of human experience send forth the product of spiritual dissonance or the power of God's providential laws depending on our reactions to our human experiences. This is evident in all Biblical Scripture. Obey God's Holy Word and you experience His providence, prosperity and protection. Like a bird who chirps in the morning sunrise so is a man who continues in endless pursuit of evil. He is a product of inherit nature. He does what he knows to do. To change the nature, one has to change the environment. To change the environment, one has to change their detrimental choices in life. We are who we are because of what we choose to think, do or say.
God knows those who will choose to change and those who will choose not to. He knows who will be repentant and those who will not. Many may ask if God already knows the outcome than why must we endure a life filled with experience. The answer to that is a simple fact: without life experience we do not have free-will choice. A person can love someone but they cannot “make“ someone love them. Love is a free-will, soulful, heart felt experience. God's desire is for all of humanity to be reconciled and in love with Him so He created us with a mind to freely choose. The cause and effect of our life's experience and personal choices provides us with the evidence of who and what we are made of, iron sharpens iron. Those who delight and follow God's Holy Biblical laws are His children, as they meditate on the law day and night.(6) They consider their life's journey as one of sacred pursuit.
Those who follow another path in life, belong to another father. While we may put on the mask of false persona God knows the spiritual condition of our soul. We cannot ever fool God. While we may fool the world we will never fool the creator of the world. While we may seem like a completely content human on the outside, God knows our inner most being. He knows who we are in spirit and in truth. The spirit searches all things even the deep things of God.(7) While this may seem insignificant to most of the world, it is not insignificant. In fact, who we are in Christ is who God created us to be, a child of the King of kings and Lord of lords. Our motives and inner most secrets confirm this truth each and every day. What we do in secret is who we are. Who we are is what we do in secret. I repeat this point of reference only to make clear what is obviously true.
There is no secret in life that has not been disclosed. The secret law of attraction is a false reality of a conceptual manner. Life and its higher precepts and purpose would never be kept a secret by a God and Father who adores and loves His creative child. To keep such a secret from His children would be the act of a merciless Father. A Father who condemned His children rather than watch them grow in faith beyond the limitations of their minds ability. The song in a birds heart is a natural God created occurrence. So is humanities ability to choose. Man can and often does expand his abilities, with the help from the Holy Spirit as he grows in confidence. Like a bird who repeatedly pushes her young out of the nest to teach them to fly. What bird do you see that walks everywhere he chooses to go instead of flying there? A bird can and does sometimes walk but it is his natural nature to fly. Once a bird learns of his ability to fly, he also knows there is a life of experience beyond his nest. Thus, he chooses to experience life. So it is with man who wonders from his place.(8) He is the sum total of his circumstance and experiences in life, “unless” he realizes the spiritual inspiration and significance behind the sum total of his life experiences. Then like a bird, he flies naturally with the course of the wind, or the path of the river, for he knows his journey is God ordained serving a higher purpose and plan.
Humanity was created to be an extension of God's love. Above the Angels, in leadership and servitude to God Himself, created in God's image as a manifestation and representation of God's love. A love so consuming and encompassing that God himself took a back seat to His own creation. He became a mortal man named Jesus, to save man from himself. It is incomprehensible to think of God's love as anything else. God loves humanity and it's earthly kingdom. His earthly kingdom is loved because it is creation. Why does He love His creation? Because God is love!
God holds no secret. He holds no wayward path of redemption. God only holds love. Follow His heart of love, compassion, grace and mercy, and you follow His path to redemption. Depart from that path and you achieve man's view and opinion of success. What is success without God? The answer to that question lies in the seed of any secret. A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps.(9)
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the Heavens He has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the Heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.
THE LAW OF THE LORD IS PERFECT, RIVIVING THE SOUL
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The statues of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold, they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. (10) The path for your life and how you spend eternity was laid out before you in Biblical Holy Scripture. It you choose another path, it is a path you choose.
- Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on
human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
- Jeremiah 29:8-9 Yes, this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Do not let the prophets and diviners among
you deceive you. Do not listen to the dreams you encourage them to have. (9) They are prophesying lies to you in my
name. I have not sent them,” declares the Lord.
- Philippians 4:12-13, “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned “the secret” to
being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. (13) I can do
everything through him who gives me strength.”
INSIGHTFUL THOUGHTS OF REFERENCE: THE SECRET BEHIND - “THE SECRET”:
The Secret Law Of Attraction both a book and feature length Internet movie release, is based on an age old secret, said to be 4,000 years in the making. In ages past this secret law of attraction was supposedly known by a select few, but is now revealed to the world. The law of attraction was first brought into contemporary 21st century attention as Esther and Jerry Hicks publicized the teachings. Esther Hicks claims she channels “her future self” named as advanced entities called “ Abraham”. The channeled manifestation of “Abraham” has provided our world culture with the foundational occult message of the law of attraction. The jest of the foundational message in my opinion can be summed up as “what you can believe, you can achieve and thus receive!”
The so called “Abraham” entities channeled through Esther Hicks (written down by her husband Jerry), proclaim that “you” create your own reality and the universe is simply reflecting back to you the essence of how your feeling about it. Your emotions provide the compass or GPS (Global Positioning System), for your life. On the Hick's website “Abraham” states, “We're wanting you to hear that there is no risk at all! Fantasize and watch what happens.”
VISUALIZATION AND FANTASY ARE OCCULT TECHNIQUES
Visualization and fantasy are occult techniques used by Shamans for thousands of years. Often called the minds eye or third eye by mystics, it is activated by the use of your minds imagination, visualizing what you desire. The third eye was alluded to in the movie “The Secret” when the young man of ages past touched the female statue in between the eyes, creating a burst of light or energy. It is also used by sexual addicts who visualize and fantasize to pornography, enforced by the anchoring and conditioning of masturbation (reference article: “Foolish Pleasure – The Love Story Of A Sex Addict, His Betrayal, And Crime”, and “Addiction Definitions And Hypothesis”). Narcissistic, psychopathic serial killers visualize and fantasize habitually, before, during, and after committing their crimes of horror. Ted Bundy, Jeffery Dahmer, and Dennis Rader (BTK killer), are three infamous examples. We are to have faith in God and His word, not faith in our ability to visualize our own self-centered, self-serving desires. * Reference our website article: "Visualization, Positive Confession, Occult Methods Of Faith."
The law of attraction teachings grew in popularity after the website movie premier, “The Secret,” (executive producer Rhonda Byrne), promoted the “Genie In The Bottle” philosophy. Jerry and Esther Hicks were consulted by Byrne, and were to be included in the original movie. The Hicks were later informed by Byrne that the original plans and format under contract had changed, at which time the Hick's were paid for their involvement and the demon entity “Abraham's” input concerning the law of attraction and the new planned Internet movie, “The Secret” proceeded as Byrne planned.
The attraction law is not new to humanity as the ideas and ideals have been touted within Gnostic philosophy for ages past. Philosophical mysticism is any philosophy that seeks to discover, reveal, or tap into the nature of reality through the process of thought or spiritual intuition. The dualism Gnostic theory that there are two distinct principles or Gods of eternal and equal power at war with each other is one most (if not all), of humanity is aware of. In epistemology these two principles are idea and object, or thought and thing. In metaphysics these two things are mind and matter. In ethics, they are good and evil or absolute right and wrong. In religion, they are called God and Satan, or good and evil. In nature, they are called light and darkness.
The early Gnostic's held this view of two Gods in conflict in the universe and that this conflict is generally fought out in and among human beings. This theory is contradictory to God's revelation of Himself in that He is clearly sovereign over all that opposes Him. There is no power equal to God. How can Satan, one of God's creations be stronger, more powerful or wiser than the creator Himself ? The entire book of Job in Biblical Holy and inspired scripture shows that God indeed is sovereign over Satan and his attacks on humanities mind, spirit, soul and body. Satan must have God's permission to even touch a hair on one of His children's head ( Job 1:12).
Mysticism teaches that God is within. Panentheism teaches creation is part of God, and God is contained in creation. Monism teaches man and the universe are part of the same universal energy or life force. Biblical scripture teaches the only way God can become a part of man is through salvation in Jesus Christ (John 3:16), by confessing and believing He is Lord (Romans 10:10), and accepting His free salvation gift (Romans 6:23).
While many within the metaphysical spiritual realm claim they hear from God (“ A Course In Miracles”, and “Conversations With God are two examples”), the voice or communication is heard through practices God calls detestable (Deuteronomy 18:12), occult manifestations of mediums, channeled spirits, guides, divination or sorcery signs and wonders. The messages given also contradict Biblical Holy Scripture.
“A Course In Miracles” was inspirited by a “voice” who claimed he was Jesus, channeled by Jewish atheistic psychologist Helen Schucman. The “voice of Jesus” Schucman heard was conversing with her to correct errors in the Bible. “The Course” reality manipulation includes denial of sin, death, and even Jesus body. All is and was an illusion according to “The Course”. Neale Donald Walsch wrote the work “Conversations With God, Book 1: An Uncommon Dialogue”, sometimes referred to as “CwG”. His book (and many thereafter), according to Walsch on a Larry King Interview, came at a low period in his life when he wrote an angry letter to God asking questions about why his life wasn't working. He heard a “voice” state: “Do you really want an answer to all these questions or are you just venting?”
The voice said such things as; there is only God, and everything is God, we lack nothing, and if we choose to realize it, we have enough of whatever we think we need, or the means to create it. A few other claims by Walsh, “And so you have created in your mythology the being you call devil”, there is no sin, or hell or place of eternal damnation, reincarnation is true, and “if you want to know what's true for you about something, look at how you're feeling about it... hidden in your deepest feelings is your highest truth.” Erroneous error blaspheming the word of God. What do Schucman and Walsch have in common? Their “God” is not the one true “God” as spoken of in Biblical Holy Scripture. We are warned by God in his word to watch out that we are not deceived. Matthew 7:22-23, “Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? (22) Then I will tell them plainly, ' I never knew you. Away from me, you evil-doers!”
PAUL STATES IN GALATIANS 1:8; “BUT EVEN IF WE OR AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN SHOULD PREACH A GOSPEL OTHER THAN THE ONE WE PREACHED TO YOU, LET HIM BE ETERNALLY CONDEMNED!”
As for Christians who are ignorant of the word of God, falling for such blasphemous error... Paul states in Galatians 1:6-9, “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel – (7) which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. (8) But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! (9) As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!”
There are those within the Christian faith who still hear from God. His voice is proclaimed loud and clear throughout the Holy Bible which is His primary method of teaching (2nd Timothy 3:16-17). On rare occasions He speaks to His children personally through the power of the Holy Spirit. After being raised according to Biblical scripture all my life, saturated by the Holy Bible in principal and truth, what goes in, is what naturally comes out! Therefore the wisdom of God's word, which is living and active, has become my inspirited wisdom, truth and understanding. The words within this written message where also derived from by a voice, “God's voice and letter to all of humanity, The Holy Bible.” The words I have written automatically came together dictated from within my spirit as inspired by the Holy Spirit. With no preconceived knowledge or assessment of final thought's of inspiration, this work literally wrote itself faster than my fingers could type out the message.
Within secular and occult traditions this is termed as automatic writing. The subjective difference is the Holy Spirit inspires messages that lead man back to God and His word for the finial authority and answers to their problems. Other worldly message's discounting the word of God, inspiring man to look within himself as a “God” (same temptation and deception as in the garden of Eden, Genesis 3:5), for creativity, inspiration, guidance and direction, or from without at nature, animals, or a man made idol or golden calf (Exodus 32), are inspirited by another “voice”. That voice is a demonic entity masquerading as Jesus Christ himself!
“HE WHO BEGINS BY SEEKING GOD WITHIN HIMSELF MAY END UP CONFUSING HIMSELF AS GOD ” - B. B. WARFILD.
“He who begins by seeking God within himself may end up by confusing himself AS God” - B. B. Warfild, Biblical and Theological Studies, Philadelphia: Presbyterian and Reformed, 1952. Inspired messages that contradict God's word are not from God (John 1:1). To be wise according to God is to put his word into practice (Matthew 7:24). You have to know the fruit of God's word in order to differentiate His wise truth from deceptive erroneous error (John 15). Matthew 7:15-16, “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. (16) By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?” So hear my “voice”...what kind of fruit cake are you listening to?”
