MKE 2018: Connection just like the Vine and the Branches

Through our journey in Master Key Experience, it is very evident that we are being challenged to be very mindful of our thoughts and be very conscious of what is going through our mind. We might not have control over what kind of thoughts pass through our mind but we can choose to either hold onto it or substitute with another thought if the thought is not desirable. We don’t want to waste our time spent on the thoughts that are not true in nature whether thoughts are about ourselves or about others. How do we choose to dwell on truth and truth only?

Hannel 9:7 ” To know the Truth is to be in harmony with the Infinite and Omnipotent power. To know the truth is, therefore, to connect yourself with a power which is irresistible and which will seep away every kind of discord, inharmony, doubt or error of any kind, because the “Truth is mighty and will prevail.””

Hannel shared that we can know the truth by connecting with the infinite, the source of the Truth, and Omnipotent power. How do we do this? It is by our thought which is “the connecting link”. That’s why we have been working so hard on “Mental Diet” tracking our thoughts and focusing on substituting our negative thoughts with positive thoughts.  

Hannel 10:9 “Thought is the connecting link between the Infinite and the finite, between the Universal and the individual. “

When we have positive thoughts (truth), we have connection with the power within and it will lead to positive results but when we have negative thoughts, it is not possible to connect with the power within, the Infinite and the Universal Mind (God).

Hannel 10:19 “If your thought is in harmony with the creative Principle of nature, it is in tune with the Infinite Mind, and it will form the circuit, it will not return to you void;but it is possible for you to think thoughts that are not in tune with the Infinite, and when there is no polarity, the circuit is not formed.”

That’s it, there is no polarity, no power to be manifested when the thought is negative and not connected with this irresistible power within.

You see, in the Bible, John 15:5-8 refers to this truth. Jesus describes Himself as the Vine and we are the branches. If the branch is not connected, then there is no flow of receiving the necessary water or nutritional supplies to be able to bear any fruit. But if the branch is connected and stay connected, it will receive the necessary water and nutritional supplies to bear its fruit. I love the expression of “If you remain in me and I in you“. Our job is to “remain” in Him, being connected with Him who is the truth, the way and the life. 

John 14:6,  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

It is only through this connection, I can have true relationship with God, the Father, who is the Creator, the Infinite, Universal Mind and Omnipotent Power. I have been in this journey of knowing Christ as personal Lord and Savior for many years and living my life through Him not by my own power or my own way.

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

It is my heart’s desire that I will continue this journey of remaining in my Lord, Jesus Christ and walking this journey with Him in very intimate way.  I remain in Him and His words remain in me then I know and believe that whatever I wish will be done for me by my God, the Father who is the giver of the perfect gift. 

James 1:17    “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
