Bittersweet Symphony – Can I change ?

Can I change?

Craig Holme Spiritual Inspiration

‘Can I change?’ is the question we ask ourselves occasionally when we are striving to achieve our Life Goals.

“Cause it’s a Bittersweet Symphony, this life” is the opening line in the song Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve. We have been told by some Personal Development Gurus that we can change for the better if we just strive hard enough, follow all the right rules, and meditate a little longer.

But what if we find that the more we try to change, the less happy we feel about ourselves ? The performance based program leaves us in a place where we feel like we are not quite making it to nirvana again.

You try to “Follow the 7 Principles for Self Enlightenment” but when you fail or make mistakes, it leaves you thinking that you are more in the dark than when you started the Program.

Later in Bittersweet Symphony…

Coldplay Paradise Inspiration – Dreams

Craig Holme Spiritual Inspiration

Have you Lost your Dream of Paradise?

Life throws many challenges at us to test our resolve.

The lyrics of the song Paradise by Coldplay are fascinating,

“When she was just a girl

she expected the world

But it flew away from her reach

so she ran away in her sleep”

Do you feel like your Dream is beyond your reach now ?

Your New Dream is not outside the scope of your own imagination. The only thing that can stop you is if you create an inner picture of failure.

Does your Dream now feel like it would be much harder to attain because of adverse circumstances?

It is important not to focus on your current turn of events but rather to reimagine what you want. In this way you can use your imagination as a motivating force that will attract what your heart desires. Your use of inner…

Grace Vs Cancel Culture

The Missing Key in most peoples understanding of our Lord Jesus Christ’s Prayer,

“Give us this Day, our Daily Bread”

is How to Receive our Provision from Heaven.

There are two extremes of Theology Teaching have created fallacies, which totally distort the clear instruction in the Holy Scripture as to the Biblical Plan for Financial Provision and all forms of Daily Bread. These errors open the door for the insidious Ant-Western Cultural indoctrination program prevalent in some Theological Seminaries.

1 – Poverty is Holiness

2 – Prosperity is only for My Benefit.

When we look at what the Scriptures plainly Teach about Provision and Prosperity, it is obvious that you would need a Politically Correct Professor of Theology to confuse you with ‘Cancel Culture’ hysterical nonsense, to not understand the Message of Jesus.

In Luke Ch6V20-21 Jesus said,

“Then he looked up at his Disciples and said,

‘Blessed are you who are poor,”

The PC pedlars of Cancel Culture indoctrination misinterpret this as an anti-Capitalist rant from Jesus, where he was supposedly inciting Class Warfare against those Jews and Romans who were in the Government and were wealthy at the time.

This is not how most of Jesus Disciples would have interpreted this statement, being mainly Small Business operators and a Tax Collector. The exception being the rebel Judas, who likely misconstrued the reference to ‘Blessed poor’ as a revolutionary inducement. We can understand WHY Judas later betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of Silver, when we realise that his motivation was not greed, as he thought his treachery was justified because of his PC Agenda. Judas ideas were the equivalent of the perfidy of Theological Professors today who have substituted the Gospel of Grace for cloaked utopian idealism.

Obviously Jesus was not saying here that Poverty is a sign of the Blessing of Heaven, neither was he saying that the poor need to rise up with violence and shake off their oppressors. the proof of this is in Pilate’s later exclamation that he finds no guilt in Jesus. If Jesus was teaching Revolutionary War and advocating Cancel Culture type rhetoric, there would have been a lot of evidence to convict him.

Jesus continues, “For Yours is the Kingdom of God.”

To the religious hypocrite this means Pie in the Sky, ‘You are poor now, and there is nothing you can do about it because money is evil, but wait until you get to Heaven and all your needs will be met’. Those trying to proselytize Theological Students with Big Brother PC Culture, react against this duplicity and use it’s deception and falsity to gain adherents.

However, to the Believer this promise of the Kingdom of God is for the nasty here and now.

“Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled.”

What motivated the zealots who were in the crowds listening to Jesus and trying to decide if He was the leader that they were looking for, was their hatred for the Pharisees and Scribes as phoney religious impostors. They thought, ‘for you will be filled’ meant ‘rise up in rebellion and steal what you need’. In the same way Cancel Culture tries to characterise all Christian leaders as money hungry pretenders, and unfortunately most people are deceived by this.

We should not be surprised at the Spiritual Battle between the Gospel of Grace and the Big Brother Cancel Culture Agenda, as we can see this being portrayed in Judas in all four of the Gospels.

“Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh”

Here Jesus is not saying, ‘Its a Sign of your holiness now that you are weeping, and because of your misery you will laugh in the hereafter’.

Of course we will be happy and merry in Heaven, but Jesus was giving them hope for the now. The Jews at the time mostly believed that the Kingdom of God was to manifest the Abrahamic Blessing upon their lives in the here and now. The Jews would never have believed the Poverty is Holiness Gospel preached to the Church for the past 1200+ years, because it contradicts their belief in the Blessing of Abraham and the Kingdom of God.

Jesus was Teaching from a Jewish perspective, which firmly believed that provision was an essential part of the Blessing of the Kingdom.

Grace Vs Social Justice Utopia

Bittersweet Symphony – Money Game

There is a poignant and moving reference to being a Money Slave in the opening lines of this wonderful song by The Verve,

“Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony this life

Trying to make ends meet, you’re a slave to the money

then you die”

Life can be bittersweet at times, and there is no point being resentful about it, and holding onto grudges.

When it comes to Money, if we Play the Victim Card we will always be a Slave to Money.

If we see making Money as our part of the Money Game, we can look at it more objectively, and less emotionally, and have more fun with it.

You do not have to play the Role of a Slave in the Money Game. Anyone can change the Rules of the Money Game, and start Winning.

You can stop being a Slave to Money by first realising that you have power over Money, it does not control you. As soon as you understand this you can begin the process of making Money work for you.

When I was at University I very much had a mindset that I was a Slave to Money, and this created an attitude of indignation and irritation towards those with more Money than I had. If you think that Money controls you it seems unfair that others have more than you do.

But if you think that you can control Money, your Goal is to Win the Money Game. By adding to this a willingness to help others develop a Winning attitude, and you will compound your level of success.

In my first year at Uni I was completely blind to this, as the idea of a Money Game was like an unknown foreign language to me.

By creating an inner successful picture of yourself you activate the Law of Attraction, and you start learning how to Win the Game of Life. However, almost all discussions of the Law of Attraction leave out the Bittersweet Symphony. There can be no success without overcoming various struggles and pain.

Most ‘Attraction Experts’ try to make it look like following their Formulas and Mantras will mean an end of challenges and obstacles in your life, whereas the opposite is true.

The only way to achieve the Success you are looking for is to learn how to turn your bittersweet dramas around by choosing not to be discontented with your current Stage of Game.

Grace Vs Social Justice Utopia

The Gospel of the Kingdom that was Preached by our Lord Jesus Christ is being confused and distorted as a Social Justice Message by the Political Correctness Agenda in some Western higher educational Institutions.

Jesus is presented as a Utopian idealist who was defiantly railing against the systemic injustices of his time.

An exposure of the corruption of the real message of Jesus is found in the Gospel of Mark Ch12 V13-17, regarding Paying Taxes to Caesar.

“And they sent to him some of the Pharisees and some of the Herodians, to trap him (Jesus) in his talk.”

The equivalent of this today would be sending some University Lecturers to debate a prominent Preacher or Priest, to try to catch them out by cornering them into making a politically incorrect statement. It is very important to understand this because the idea that Jesus was a rebel against society is not new.

The Pharisees thought that Jesus ‘revolutionary fervour’ would make him declare opposition to paying Taxes to Caesar, as was the case with other radical politically motivated sects operating at the time. This is why they asked him the following question about taxation.

“And they came and said to him, ‘Teacher, we know that you are true and do not care about anyone’s opinion. For you are not swayed by appearances, but truly Teach the way of God.

Is it Lawful to pay Taxes to Caesar, or not? Should we pay them, or not?”

At this point the Pharisees were convinced that they had outsmarted Jesus, and would then be able to call the Roman authorities and have him arrested if he said anything against paying Taxes. This would have been true if Jesus was in fact a political agitator, as todays PC Thought Police claim that he was. The Pharisees got this erroneous idea from Jesus other Teachings on the Kingdom of God, which they completely misunderstood, just like PC Theologians today deliberately misinterpret Jesus Teachings.

“But, knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, ‘Why put me to the test, bring me a Denarius and let me look at it.”

Jesus knew that the motivation of the Pharisees was to accuse him of rebellion so that they could hide their own political games with Rome. There is an alarming parallel with Theologians and Seminary Lecturers today teaching Politically Correct compromise and Class Warfare nonsense to receive Government funding.

“And they brought one, and he said to them, ‘Whose likeness and inscription is this? They said to him ‘Caesar’s’. Jesus said to them,’Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s’.

And they marvelled at him.’

This response obviously shocked the Pharisees, just as PC inquisitors are surprised when they encounter the Gospel of Grace.

Empowered by Grace

Your heart may be weighed down because of the betrayal of a family member, partner, or friend. Our hearts are healed as we yield to the Grace of Jesus.

Craig Holme Spiritual Inspiration

Recently we have been experiencing some disruptions to our Electricity Power Supply across the State in which I live. Aberrant weather conditions have caused Power blackouts which have created problems for households and business. In the Kingdom of God we have the Power of the Holy Spirit which obviously never suffers from a blackout.

How do we access this Power from the Holy Spirit ?

In Ephesians 2 V8, Paul talks about Faith being given to us by Grace, and that we cannot manufacture Faith by our own effort. Sometimes we get the idea that we have to turn on the Electricity Supply in Heaven, and that it is our Faith that switches on the Power. We can assume from this concept that there is a current Power blackout in Heaven, and we have to switch it back on with Faith. In Ephesians Paul is showing us that there is…

Grace Vs Judgement

When I ask those who are no longer attending Church regularly why this is, I hear the same thing over and over again.

These Believers had experienced a failure or mistake in their personal lives, like divorce or bankruptcy, and had been judged harshly by friends in the Church who they thought would have been more understanding.

They now watch Church Ministries online and miss the fellowship of their friends.

The problem is in the way we are Teaching the Message of Righteousness.

I recently heard a Believer say that he “ hates Pride wherever he sees it, especially in leadership”. My immediate reaction was to ask whether the person making this accusation against leaders if they themselves had ever committed the Sin of Pride. I find that those who are pointing the finger at others for certain Sins, are usually struggling with the same Sins themselves.

Paul explains this propensity to accuse others of our own weaknesses, in his Letter to the Romans where he warns against having a judgmental attitude.

When we understand that Righteousness is a Gift of the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, we become far less judgmental of others. It is only when we think that we are perfect because of our own adherence to our personal religious rule book, that we inherit a judgmental attitude.

This does not mean that the Grace message creates an excuse for Sin, as we are falsely accused of saying. When you Believe that you are the Righteousness of God by Grace, there is no room for Ego based boasting. You cannot proclaim to others that you are more holy than they are because you have said more Prayers through your Prayer Beads, Lit more candles, confessed your Sinful nature more often, your diet is more technically correct, been more critical of the shortcomings of others, openly accused more Church leaders of moral failures, condemned and hated yourself more often than others, accused everyone else in their Church of the Sin of Pride, if you have a Revelation of Righteousness by Grace.

To those who are saying that Grace gives an excuse for Sin, some people don’t need an excuse for Sin, they need a remedy to overcome it without becoming Self Righteous hypocrites who accuse others of Pride.

Many think that the Gospel of Grace is a watered down message of compromise. This is because some who are Preaching Grace do not understand that the Gift of Grace is Righteousness, not Political Correctness.

You cannot Walk In the Power of Grace and Teach the Political Correctness Agenda. The two are opposing forces, engaged in serious Spiritual Warfare for the future of the Church.

Grace removes Condemnation and Guilt from a Believers life by realising that we are the Righteousness of God by Faith. We must Believe that we are the Righteousness of God to receive the benefit of the Holy Spirit’s Blessing of No Condemnation. If you feel guilty yourself, you are going to see the same Sins you are committing In others. Your role is not to be the Sin Detective, but to freely proclaim Righteousness by Grace as the solution to the your Sin problem and everyone else’s challenges.

This does not mean that the Gospel of Grace adherents will never be tempted to Sin. But you will be able to overcome every temptation through the power of the Holy Spirit, without feeling the constant need to justify why you are condemning others.

If you are saying that ‘you Hate Pride where Ever you see it’ , you are really saying that you Hate the Pride that you see in yourself because you have not been able to Overcome it. The Revelation of Righteousness by Grace completely disempowers ego driven Pride.

Instead, your Holy Spirit inspired attitude should be one of encouragement for Believers to continue in the Faith of Christ Jesus.

Bittersweet Symphony Inspiration

The Verve’s Bitter Sweet Symphony contains some some gems of wisdom hidden in the cynicism and despair.

“Cause its a bittersweet symphony this life”

The Game of Life does have it’s ups and downs, and everyone experiences this rollercoaster. The Key to be inspired by this intense and wonderful song by The Verve is how do you respond to Life’s challenges, and specifically Can you change your life and not become bitter from your negative experiences.

“Trying to make ends meet, you’re a slave to the money then you die”

You can become a slave to money if you don’t learn how to control it, and make it work for you. You can either believe that Money controls you, or that you have the power to control money.

“I’ll take you dow the only road I’ve ever been down”

There is a sense of entitlement in many young people now, which in some ways comes from a fear of not being able to control our personal destiny. It is believed that there is only one road to go down, and that there isn’t another alternative path of self sufficiency, and that lack of money keeps you on this single path. Therefore some people are stuck in a rut where you need a Government handout just to make ends meet. This is not to say that Government assistance is not necessary, but that we should not become dependent on it and think that we are perpetually entitled to it forever.

“You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah”

You can get off the road of illicit drugs and all forms of addiction, including gambling, porn and alcohol. The emotional pain that are experiencing can be healed by a connection to the Grace of forgiveness if you realise that holding onto bitterness harms nobody but yourself.

If you think that there is No Light at the end of the tunnel, then your inner emotional turmoil will have no escape valve. The pain that you are hiding from others needs an outlet, or it will fester with the anger and disappointment of being treated unfairly.

As you decide to forgive that person who has done you wrong, you will find yourself open to the Love that will spring forth into your heart again. You can now forgive yourself for allowing that person to take advantage of you in the first place. Forgiveness brings the refreshing peace and joy that you have been seeking, and enables you to finally let it go.

“No change, I can’t change, I can’t change, I can’t change”

You may feel that you can’t change, that you are stuck, but you can always receive the change that the Grace of forgiveness will freely bring you if you ask for it.

Grace Vs Self Righteousness

Those who walk in Grace have no need to point the finger of accusation against other Christians for not measuring up.

It is recognised that but for the Grace of God that any Christian could end up making the same mistakes as the accused.

The Self Righteous on the other hand are constantly pointing out the faults and weaknesses of other Christians, especially those in leadership.

This ‘holier than thou’ attitude is prevalent in all denominations and is not just restricted to one branch of the Church. The only exception is the amazing Salvation Army because they are too busy helping those in need to be bothered with religious games.

Abraham believed God and it was counted unto him for Righteousness. Notice Paul does not say that Abraham was religiously perfect, did everything right and never made a mistake, was an example of absolute pristine moral purity, and was beyond reproach, therefore God declared him as Righteous.

In his life Abraham showed several moral failings, yet God judged his heart and not his mistakes. If Christians could only please God by being completely perfect in every respect, there would be very few people pleasing God. So we should be slow to judge others, and quick to forgive.

This is not creating an excuse for those who compromise their integrity by submitting to the Political Correctness Agenda.

Abraham Believed God, and this Faith pleases God and is Counted as Righteousness.

Grace Vs Anxiety

Grace fills your heart with Gratitude, Love, Peace and abundant Joy.

Anxiety fills you with a sense of dread and feelings of nervousness because you are told that you cannot Control your disquiet by the PC Agenda. This belief in a lack of a solution to your anxious state leads to even more apprehension. You are constantly reminded that it is in your genetics, that you are naturally predisposed to being a nervous wreck, and there is no way out.

We only have to look at Classic Movies from the 40’s and 50’s to see that our Society never used to believe the ‘No Light at the end of the Tunnel’ nonsense.

You find yourself not being able to sleep properly because of your consternation about the issues of the next day. The only way out seems to be more alcohol and illicit drugs to remedy your trepidation.

At your darkest point the Light of Grace from our Lord Jesus Christ comes to you.

As you yield your heart to the Grace of Jesus you find that perturbation instantly leaves you to your surprise. Grace calms your disquietude with the presence of the Spirit of Life.

To your dismay your ego driven angst tells you that this is too good to be true, but the Love of God quickly extinguishes this dark arrow with more Light.

The more your discomposure unsettles you, the more Grace is available to you. You are astonished that Grace is so freely available to someone who has lived a very flawed life full of mistakes and regrets.

Grace gives you hope for the future which some of your friends and family cannot understand.

Why is she so cheery on Social Media all of a sudden? Where is the usual melancholy and sadness? Why isn’t she blaming society and everyone else today?

Grace is available to you today by simply asking Jesus Christ and yielding to His Spirit of Life. No religious rituals are required for you to qualify, no candles or incense or strict diets or meditation marathons. You don’t have to be perfect to receive Grace. Grace is a Free Gift from our Loving Heavenly Father.

Do you fear being distressed with anxiety, or would you like to experience the Love and Joy that passes all understanding that comes from the Grace of Jesus?
