I once downloaded a copy of an OS for my computer because I no longer had the disk and needed to do a repair of the system. What I didn’t realize at the time (I am much wiser now!) was that the OS I downloaded was pre-infected with a virus. When I did my repair, I ended up with an un-clean OS, and needless to say I was worse off than with my original problem.
In the same way, God created us with a pure OS. One that was designed to work in connection with THE Cloud, if you catch my drift. But the enemy of our souls came in and duped A&E into installing his Trojan under the guise of them having a faster, better processor. (Kind of like those TV commercials that act like by installing their “free” software, they will make a single core 256MB DDR XP laptop fly like a Quad Core i7 with 16GB of DDR3 Ram). He lied, and they were corrupted and didn’t know it.
To further complicate the problem here, they were created to self-replicate and now each and every one with a copy of that warped pirated OS installed. This left each of us having that unclean registry, and in other words, we are unable to think straight.
But God (who far exceeds anything Apple, Microsoft or Google could ever do) didn’t leave us there, or throw us away to start over. (Can you imagine, “Humans 2.0 soon to be released”?) He sent His son to purchase a new clean version of the OS, so that all could have it.
What do you have to do to get this upgrade? You must ask Him for it. It is not an automatic upgrade, because our default setting for updating was set to manual by the Trojan. It is not just something that happens because you think it might be a good idea. It is one of those updates you spend hours searching online forums for because you are tired of dealing with the problems and errors of the current software. It takes humility to admit that you are broken and need fixing. I understand this can be hard (I still deal with people who are running 98, or who argue XP is better than 7), but there is no way around this.
At the age of 15, my OS was so messed up that I really had no hope of it ever working correctly. I had crossed circuits, messed up hardware, and a registry so polluted, I had often even thought of cutting my power cord. I had no hope. But, thankfully I had a divine meeting and was offered Tech support. I surrendered all of me for repair, and He upgraded me with His OS. Instantly I felt like a ton of viral processes and junk toolbars were uninstalled. I could think straight, I could love and be loved, I had hope and a future.
I am not talking about an update to the current OS. As if updating to SP1 of Vista took care of its core problems. I was not updated, I was a new clean install.
I am also not talking about some new app. Something that runs within the corrupted OS to somehow mask the problems. I am talking a new way of life, one that come from God who created us. Not some appendage to a dead way of living.
I hope you understand my tech speak here and turn and ask God for the upgrade. If you need help or have questions, I have original OEM install disks and the full manual. Just let me know.
