The Four Levels of Destiny and Luck:
Tian (Heaven, Time), Di (Earth, Space), Ren (Man, Decision), Shen (Spirit, God)
These are the 4 levels that govern destiny and luck. The Chinese word Ming Yun = Ming (Destiny) Yun (Luck)
We use Bazi and Astrology to work with Heaven. We use Feng Shui to work with Earth. We use Divination to work with Man.
As for Spirit, this is the level that is dealt with by different religions including Taoist Talisman Magic and Buddhism.
But what I want to focus on here is Christianity.
In Feng Shui, negative forces are known as “Sha”.
Christianity calls it “The Curse”. The Earth is cursed because Adam ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil.
In the Chinese Metaphysical Art of Qi Men Dun Jia, there are 8 Doors and the most auspicious one is the “Life Door” and the most inauspicious one is the “Death Door”.
Creation is Fallen and under a Curse. Christ came to offer Redemption and a New Creation.
Feng Shui focuses on making use of Creation, but because of the Curse, there is never any perfect Feng Shui. Christ provides the solution of Redeeming Creation.
God offers spiritual remedies for fallen creation in the form of:
1. The Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion).
The bread represents the body of Jesus which took The Curse upon himself at The Cross. The cup represents the blood of Jesus which was shed for the forgiveness of sins. The Bible says by partaking of the Lord’s Supper, we are proclaiming the Lord’s Death. Jesus died our death and absorbed the “Death Door”.
The Jews took the Lord’s Supper in the form of the Passover Feast. They ate the roasted lamb (which represented Christ roasted by the fire of judgment for our sins) and painted the DOOR Post with the blood of the lamb. When the Angel of Death saw the Blood, He passed over the house and the Jews inside were safe. But the Angel of Death killed all the first born of the Egyptians who did not have the blood of the lamb on their Door.
The Jews were then set free from their captivity in Egypt and the Egyptians gave them silver and gold and bid them farewell. The Lord’s Supper proclaims the Death of Jesus that has set us free from Economic Slavery and the Curse of Poverty that is upon the Earth. The Bible says that Jesus though He was rich, became poor for our sake so that we through His poverty might be rich. It is a Divine Exchange from the God of Christ.
2 Corinthians 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
2. The Tithe
The Bible says that when we give the Tithe, men that die receive it on Earth, but Christ in Heaven receives it and it is a witness that He Lives. The Tithe activates the “Life Door” of Christ.
John 10:9 I AM THE DOOR: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have LIFE, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The Tithe means the Tenth. Number 10 in Bible Numerology is the Number of God.
The Bible says to honor the Lord with your substance, the firstfruits of all your increase.
The Earth is under a curse, and God wants you to bring a Tenth of your material substance so that he can bless it and therefore the rest of what you have is redeemed from the curse.
Romans 11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
Haggai 1:6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
8 Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD.
9 Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
10 Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit.
Malachi 3: 8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
3. The Gift of Righteousness
Buddhism says that all life is suffering, and accumulation of merit is the key to alleviating suffering and achieving bliss or good fortune.
The Bible says that the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23), and by one man’s offence (Adam’s Sin) death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:17)
The Bible says that those that try to go about trying to go about accumulating merit or righteousness through their own works are under the works of the law and are therefore under the curse.
Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse.
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Philippians 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
All other religions tells you to go about accumulating your own righteousness. Only Christianity reveals the One True God that offers you Righteousness as a Gift. When you receive the Gift of Righteousness through Jesus Christ and declaring yourself Righteous through the Blood of Jesus, good things start happening for you and your destiny is changed for the better.
Proverbs 10:6 Blessings are upon the head of the righteous.
Psalms 5:12 For thou, LORD, will bless the righteous; with favour will you surround him as with a shield.
Proverbs 15:6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure.
4. The Name of Jesus
Taoist Talisman Magic uses the names of deities and stamp with the seal of divine authority to evoke heavenly mandates that are to be carried out by spiritual forces.
The Bible says:
Psalms 148:13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
Ephesians 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Jesus is the Highest God in the Universe and He is the Creator. His Name carries the Highest Authority in Heaven. Angels move to carry out commands, and demons flee at the sound of His Name.
Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power (Exousia, Authority) is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
In studying the subject of Destiny, other than the level of Heaven, earth and Man, the Spirit level also plays a very significant role and has to be truly understood. Predestination exists in the Bible and God reveals what His plan is for everyone who believes in Him.
Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
