Which Picture are you looking at?

One day I received an e-mail from a certain woman who wrote about how I would become so lucky with the possibility of winning the lottery within 7 days if I followed her instructions. At that time, I was in need of so many things so I give in to her request and asked her to send me those instructions. After three days she replied back. She asked me to download her picture from her website. She further instructed that if I kept gazing at her picture for seven days I would receive something I had always been looking forward to having. I am sure this story sounds familiar to many people.

The concept of looking at the same picture time after time was not new to me. I had read about a similar story in the bible. Jacob made solid coloured cattle give birth to spotted and speckled kids by making them look at pilled rods set in the watering trough.

“And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods”. (Genesis 30:41) “And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.” Genesis 30:39)

As the animals were drinking from the gutters, their image reflected on the water. The pilled rods laid in the water made their image appeared speckled and striped. Hence, the cattle saw themselves as speckled and striped.

The Picture to look at


Which picture are you looking at?

Looking at the same image again and again makes the mind develop a belief that the image is true. Once the mind has believed something, it will cause you to become or do what it has conceived to be true. Hence, Christ said, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”(Mark 9:23) Believing removes boundaries to what you can do and attain. Actually, what you have believed you will attain it even unconsciously.

Imaging Concepts

They are two most important imaging concepts to take note of: Concentration or Meditation, and Enthusiasm or Excitement.

  • Concentration/Meditation

In Jacob’s formula, the animals conceived before the rods set in the gutters. As we have seen from the diagram above, the animals saw themselves speckled and striped through the water. On the other hand, there is another aspect to consider. When animals mate, they stand still on one position from a long time. Therefore, as these animals mated before the gutters they would concentrate on the image being reflected by the water for a long time. Hence, through meditating on the image in the water they conceived a very clear image of themselves and consequently brought forth cattle ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.

  • Enthusiasm/Excitement

In addition, during mating there is an aspect of eagerness. During this empowered state there is a release of energies that bring about the manifestation of the picture conceived into physical reality. This process is like completing an electrical circuit by switching on the power.

The picture to constantly look at

There is a picture provide for us in the bible that we should always look at. The word of God says, “They shall look on him whom they pierced.” (John 19:37) The picture of Jesus Christ on the cross is that picture which will manifest all your desires into reality if you meditate on his word with enthusiasm.

This is what I see in the image of Christ crucified. I see:

  1. That He has borne our griefs
  2. That He has carried our sorrows
  3. That he was wounded for our transgressions
  4. That  he was bruised for our iniquities
  5. That the chastisement of our peace was upon him
  6. That with his stripes we are healed.
  7. That He came poor that we might be rich
  8. That He has made us Kings and Priests and we shall reign on earth

jes36415416

The cross is a point where we trade in our sorrows in exchange for our joy. Approach the cross with excitement. Remember what the Psalmist said. I was glad when they said to me let us go to the house of the Lord. Excitement releases the power of the Holy Ghost.

Meditate also on Isaiah chapter 53 until you believe that report. Mutter the word of that Chapter like the Ethiopian eunuch did. Soon and very soon, whatsoever you desire will be made manifest.

This shall be your song if you have understood what you have just read.

At the cross, at the cross, where I first saw the light,

And the burden of my heart rolled away.

It was there by faith I received my sight,

And now I am happy all the day.

Be Blessed.
