The secret to life is that each of us has three powers. The way we choose to use each of these powers determines the kind of life we experience.
The first power available to us is the ability to choose what voices we will listen to and what things we will look upon. The second power available to us is the power to choose the subject matter of our imagination. Imagination creates desire, which rules over the body to create deeds. After creating these deeds, the third power becomes available to us, which is the ability to influence others. The ability to influence others is a major key to a successful life.
Eve’s actions in the Garden of Eden are perfect examples of the three powers of man. She heard the voice of the serpent and looked upon the forbidden fruit, she imagined the serpent was telling the truth when he said the fruit was good to eat, and then after desire came, she ate of the forbidden fruit.
Because Eve had already accomplished the deed in her mind and her body, she had the power to influence Adam to do the same thing. It would be a mistake to judge Eve harshly. She only did what was in her nature and our nature. Man was created with three statements from God on Creation Day Six. God wanted man to be made in His image and after His likeness, and He wanted them to have dominion over creatures. God also gave both man and creatures the right to eat certain foods. Since man was given dominion over creatures, he had rule over the law that gave food to creatures. It is human nature to desire to be like God, to have dominion and make their own choices, and to influence others.
Today, there is an all-out war going on between the Spirit of God or 777 and the spirit of the antichrist or 666 for the souls of mankind. Do you want to serve God and go to heaven? If so, one needs to hear and obey the voice of God, look upon good things, imagine good thoughts, do good deeds, and then influence others in a godly way.
Now if one wants to receive the number 666 on their spirit being and end up in the lake of fire, it is much easier. All one has to do is to listen to voices that are evil and look upon forbidden fruit (anything against God’s laws). One can always count on Satan giving that person evil desires if they continue to imagine evil. It’s only a matter of time when evil desires will overcome their mind and body.
After committing evil deeds in one’s own body, the antichrist will provide the authority and the power of the last 6, which gives that person the power to influence others.
Receiving the number 666 is done in complete secrecy. Since the number is placed upon one’s spirit being, the receiver of the mark of the beast is completely unaware of it. It is one’s spirit being that goes to heaven or the lake of fire, not one’s physical body; therefore, the mark of the beast is placed on one’s spirit being.
Those who obey the spirit of the antichrist truly believe they are doing their own will and obeying their own desires. In truth, they are receiving Satan’s will and making it their own. Today, the number 666 is spreading throughout the world like a deadly disease, while most people are looking for the mark of the beast on the physical bodies of people.
The power of the knowledge of good and evil is available to everyone. We must choose how we are going to use the power of the knowledge of good and evil everyday of our lives. To enjoy your life now and the hereafter, you must listen to good voices, look upon good fruit, and do good deeds. This is the advice Jesus gave mankind two thousand years ago. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, but our rewards in heaven are determined by the deeds we do here on earth.

How can you use the Secret to Life to make your life better?
Make a list of losses and defeats that you have experienced in your life. Now make a list of victories and blessings that God has given you in your life. Choose one of these lists to meditate upon. I guarantee you that before long, whatever list you have chosen to meditate upon will grow.
My advice is to rip up your list of losses and defeats into little pieces and throw it in the trash where it belongs. Then take your list of victories and blessings and place it somewhere where you will see it every day. Next, when you are faced with a challenge in your life, meditate on a similar victory God has given you in your life. If you have not experienced a similar victory in your life, choose a Bible verse where God promises a victory in that area and meditate upon it. Meditating on the promises of God and the victories He has given you in the past will cause your lists of victories and blessings to grow.
King David’s victory over Goliath provides a perfect picture on how to deal with life’s challenges. Before David faced Goliath in battle, he meditated upon the Word of God, how he had killed the bear and the lion while attending his sheep, his future victory over Goliath, and what he would receive after the victory. Then after he confessed with his mouth that God would give him the victory, he ran to battle with faith.
Promotion in life comes from victories over Goliaths, or life challenges. The good news is that God created us with the ability to experience the kind of life we want. We need to choose wisely what we meditate upon.
Please consider the wisdom of the following Bible verse.
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: . . .

How can you use the Secret to Life to get your dream job?
First, God created the laws that are the source of the Secret to Life’s power, so you need God on your side. You should therefore pray and ask God to lead you to the job that is best for you. He will then place in your heart a desire for a certain kind of work. This desire won’t go away. That is one way you will know if it is from God. In fact, for some of you God may have already placed this desire in your heart.
The next thing you need to do is to plant two types of seed, spiritual seed and physical seed. Spiritual seed is when you give of your time and money into a field that you are interested in. For example, if you want to become an electrician, a good spiritual seed to sow would be to give of your time and money into an organization such as Habitat for Humanity. As an added bonus, you would be able to obtain good contacts in the field you have chosen to work in. Also, if you choose to give to your church, you need to be sure to name the purpose for your giving when you pray and ask God to accept your seed.
Planting spiritual seed is not enough though. You must also plant physical seed into your field. It is easy to see the outcome if a farmer gave to his local church and didn’t plant in his own field. Good physical seed comes in many forms, such as education, training, savings accounts, buying tools, and doing exercise to name a few. You must determine the kind and amount of physical seed you need for your chosen field.
Lastly, you need to visualize that you have already received your dream job. Do this on a regular daily basis. Don’t ever think about what you would do if you didn’t receive your dream job. Trust and obey God and know that there will be giants to face.

Are your giants still kicking your behind?
Have you asked Jesus to forgive your sins and be your Lord and Savior? Are you obeying God’s written Word? Are your giants still defeating you even though you have planted both good spiritual seed and good physical seed?
If you have answered yes to all of these questions, I believe I can tell you why victories are still eluding you. Chances are that you still have unforgiven sins. I’m not speaking of sin you didn’t ask God to forgive you for, I’m speaking about the sin you have asked God to forgive you for and he already has. It’s easy to get God to forgive our sins because He wants to forgive us, but we are the ones that can’t seem to forgive ourselves. Unforgiven sins in our own hearts will cause our subconscious mind to work to defeat our own dreams.
God knew man would have a hard time forgiving themselves, so he provided ways to help them. It is written that we need to confess our sins to one another. Confessing our sins to others is a big step in the healing process. Have you confessed all your sins to others, or are your sins too embarrassing to confess to others? Could it be if you were to confess your sins to others it would hurt innocent people? I don’t believe God wants us to hurt others for our own benefit, but there is another way to learn how to forgive ourselves. This method will however take a lot of time and effort.
The way to help you forgive yourself is whenever you have a thought about a past sin which God has forgiven you for, think in your mind: “I have sinned much, God has forgiven all, and I am forgiven.” Then speak these words out loud until they become a habit. I am convinced that if more Christians would do this, we Christians would have more victories in this physical life.

Why do winners win and losers lose?
I am a Cleveland Browns fan. I was born and raised in Wayne County, Ohio which is about fifty miles south of Cleveland. Like Browns fans everywhere, my heart has been broken on many Sunday afternoons. To the east of where I lived lies Pittsburg. Pittsburg Steelers’ fans have many sweet memories of their team being victorious on Sunday afternoons. So when all things are equal, why do winners win and losers lose?
It is my belief that winners do two things different from losers. Winners expect to win and don’t fear losing. Losers hope to win and fear losing. Those who win repeatedly draw from the joy of previous wins to give them the ability to expect to win. Those who lose repeatedly draw from the pain of previous loses to create the fear of losing.
The road to riches for the Pittsburg Steelers started many years ago with one unforgettable miracle-like play in Oakland, California. In my opinion, that one play gave the Steelers many victories over the years. Unfortunately for my team, the Cleveland Browns, both the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders have provided them with good reasons to fear losing. If the Browns are ever going to become winners again, they must find a way to stop thinking about past heartbreaks and find a way to expect to win.
The same can be said about all of us. If we are ever going to become winners in different aspects of our lives, we too must use the joy of previous victories in order to expect to win, and we must prevent the pain of previous loses from causing us to fear defeat.
God has provided a way for all of us to become winners, even if we lack the experience of winning in the past. God has given each of us the ability to imagine victories. Our subconscious mind cannot tell the difference from an imaged experience and a real past experience.
Is there an aspect of your life where you wish you had victory? If so, do the following. When you pray to God for something, believe you have received what you prayed for at that time. Sow physical and spiritual seed. Repeatedly visualize receiving the thing you prayed for and try your best to feel as if you have already received it. Expect to receive what you prayed for and don’t doubt or fear not receiving it.
When it comes to receiving the promises of God found in the Bible, believing is easy but not doubting is hard. Jesus said if we had the faith of a mustard seed and did not doubt in our hearts, we could speak to the mountain and it would be cast into the sea.
Not doubting is hard, but with practice it does become much easier. Never think about what you would do if you didn’t receive, and never have a deadline of when you must receive. Keep your eyes on the prize, not on anything that might cause you to doubt.
Winning or losing is in your own hands because God is not a respecter of persons. He has created each of us with the ability to win or to lose. In the game of life there will be times when defeat seems likely, but winners refuse to let go of their vision of victory.
