I found this entry on the Christian Gazette. Absolutely wonderful piece. A MUST READ!
What may be considered of value on this earth, may not be of value in the Eternal Kingdom of God. Be mindful as you live each day, of the ways of the Eternal Kingdom; ways that are in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love (ways of Unconditional Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy.) God says His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them. Jesus Christ, demonstrated how much God meant this, as God’s Son, by taking on the earthly titles of what was considered the lowest of the low, on this earth while He roamed it…..

What will separate true Children of God(the Father of Creation, Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum), to those who are not? They are the people who God will personally choose as fit to have the Holy Spirit within them, to have Him guide such souls away from the deception of evil. Since God is in everywhere and in everything, His Presence and His Divine Laws of Love are CONSTANT. Such people will all lead lives in accordance to God’s Divine Laws of Love (Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy), in a uniform way; the ways that Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, demonstrated through His Earthly Life. This is what Jesus Christ meant that “He is the way…”. God, at the same time tells us to not fellowship with evil and its ways; to which Divinity states that His Ways do not conform to the ways of this world (His Creation), but is beyond them. Since when does the Creator conform to the ways of His Creation?
We must remember that we must seek further and further progress in our spiritual journeys, in order to have fertile ground for the Holy Spirit to take root within our souls. We must remember evil will never show its true face. Evil knows fully well that if it did, that no one will follow it or even listen to it. Discerning the Deception….We must remember that only Divine Logic can help us discern what is of evil; not human logic. This is the vulnerability of Humanity to which evil uses to advance its agenda to keep all of God’s most prized creations out of the Eternal Paradise. While we look for discernment to guard our own souls to which God gave us as the highest priority in purpose of our lives, we must also try to guard and help those of others who are on the same path, as well.
There is a responsibility that comes along with this, however. And that is yielding to the Holy Spirit’s Guidance. There needs to be an obedience to the Spirit. If there is any sin that Jesus Christ said is unforgiveable in the Eyes of God, it is denial of the Holy Spirit. We must find the strength to yield to the discernment and the “gut feelings that are given with spiritual discernment”…because the path or options given may be beyond the logic of the circumstances. We must remember that just as He illustrated in the story of the Prophet Job, God, knows who will withstand the tests of Satan….and still remain on the Spiritual Journey to the Eternal Paradise. It may look like in your individual worlds, that you are alone. But remember, just as Job withstood…you too, must also. As Jesus Christ, Himself, was betrayed by those closest to Him…He still stood by God’s Purpose for Him and His Life…to die for Humanity in order to give it one more chance to return back to the Father of Creation and His Eternal Paradise. To become that sacrifice, on the behalf of Humanity, in order to become (as my spiritual mentor has stated) the Shock Absorber for the sins of Humanity, and to provide the veil of protection (to all those that saw Him for Whom He truly was) through His Blood. He became the Lamb that was slaughtered, so that we can apply this Blood Covering to protect us from an eternity of damnation.
We must fully trust in God, (Father of Creation, Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum). I have to remind myself of this very thing, at times. We must remember that God is always in control. Believing in an Unseen Force takes a lot more strength and intelligence, than an average person that relies on human logic, which is restricted by the parameters of this world, and by what it can sense with the 5 human senses, that can easily be manipulated by evil. We must remember God sees the heart and soul that is deep within a person, and judges accordingly.
To have the fertile ground that is worthy enough for the Holy Spirit to take root, a soul must be well versed in the Divine Laws of Love. Plain and simple. It is humble and gentle. It is always aware of the Presence of the Omnipresent Father of Creation. It is a repentant soul that is fully aware of a God who sees all; and devoid of any pride in admitting a wrong in front of Him. It has no value for the things that are considered of great worldly value, but has great value for what God deems as valuable in His Eternal Kingdom. There is nothing of the self….but is always selfless in nature. Yet, it will have a soul that will always be vigilant for any violations of God’s Divine Laws of Love. Discern the Deception…
The Holy Spirit nudges such souls to keep on the path to the Eternal Kingdom. It convicts such souls to keep moving forward on their paths to the Divine Laws of Love…despite what evil tries to deceive and accuse them of as to their “volations”God’s Laws of Divine Love. Such souls are never appreciated during their time….because those who are of the world, can not comprehend the divine logic to which such a soul represented. Isn’t this what happened to Jesus Christ? It was the religious elite of His Time that condemned Him….those who were grounded by the worldly ways to which God, the Father of Creation has said that His Ways are beyond them. This is what was meant when said, “Truth is not seen or heard, but FELT.” Jesus Christ did not come here to establish a religion, but a way of life, to which was to demonstrate what was acceptable in the Eyes of God, in order to enter the Eternal Paradise and priesthood, to which He has promised to Humanity. This eternal paradise is not what we can establish for ourselves, but only by Divinity, alone. This is because of what the serpent introduced into the Garden of Eden, and into the hearts of Mankind…sin. Through this, all of Humanity at that point forward, were born as sinners, and it was not in our direct nature to follow the Divine Laws of Love. This is why God, (the Father of Creation, Yahweh, Jehovah, Devum) stated that “once we become broken vessels” that there will be fertile ground for the Holy Spirit to have a chance in taking root, if the individual chooses out of their own freewill to do so. It is through earthly trials that we break ourselves more and more away from the ways of this world; and have a piece of knowledge of God and His Eternal Kingdom, embedded within ourselves. It requires many trials, or trips to the Refiner’s Fire, for one to gain more knowledge of the Eternal Kingdom, and to become more convicted to the Unconditional Love that God (the Father of Creation, Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) demonstrated through Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) on the Cross, at Calvary. Discern the Deception..
It is through selfless acts. or a life that is for others to show God’s Uncondiitonal Love, that we gain entrance into the Eternal Kingdom; and develop a fertile ground for the Holy Spirit to take root within our souls. There is nothing of the self when it comes to God’s Divine Laws of Love. This is what Jesus Christ demonstrated on the Cross, on Calvary. Though being the Son of God, and a Member of the Most High Court in the Eternal Kingdom..having all of the ability and power to pass judgement on those that He came across or even having the ability to strike down anyone that came in His Ways…He did not do so. Instead, He upheld what He preached for others to do, and “turn the other cheek”. This is what the Holy Spirit does….it inspires a soul to uphold God’s Divine Laws of Love, at all earthly costs.
Jesus Christ has shown us the importance of spiritually feeding our souls. It is through this spiritual nourishment, that a soul will be able to uphold what is right and wrong; and for a soul to know what is right and wrong in the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. Jesus Christ also showed the power of God’s Unconditional Love. God (the Father of Creation, Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) went to the extent of bringing Jesus to the earth, to save Mankind; to show that He understands all of the things that Mankind faces by evil, by allowing for His Son to go through the same trials, struggles, and ways of life. Jesus Christ also showed that He too, was not exempt of what we had to go through on this earth, but showed how to conquer evil in those very same situations. The human heart is vulnerable to sin…..our flesh is weak…..but through the Holy Spirit, God will be able to provide the strength to overcome and become His Instruments in His Divine Laws of Love (ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy), and to Discern the Deception.

World famed American Rapper, DMX, turned away from the pressure of fame, and found truth behind the power of Jesus Christ. It shows that God’s Love and Power, has no boundaries to where it can reach, to let His Children know of His Love, to which He showed us through Jesus Christ, on the Cross.
Keep the Faith, my fellow Brother in Jesus Christ. And keep on testifying to Jesus’ Love for us.
For those of you who is searching for proof of the existence of God, this is a good read. This book is written by a man that has been a scientist all of his life. His search for God, began as a teenager, and still continues on. It demonstrates his “technocratic” approach in explaining God’s Existence in this world, in various aspects in our lives; from love, to the parameters of Sin, Heaven and Hell, etc., which is seen in many of his own diagrams, in the book. The author describes the book, in his own words, as follows:
“This book is an attempt to analyze the glory of creation; and the backward integration to the source, in an attempt to visualize God. In the early chapters, I have taken a critical look at the common understanding of love, and have tried to dissect it from a spiritual standpoint. In this process, what I found was a universal distribution of a love relationship, with a guiding force behind it emanating from a single source. This led me to examine other virtues in a similar manner; each time, attaching them to a single source. I called this source GOD. In the later chapters, I have tried to visualize and extract characteristic features of such a source. I have also tried to define Sin, and Revenge. Explanations have been given to show how interrelated they are. I have further explained why forgiveness is a far superior virtue. I have tried to project my view of heaven and hell, in this book.”
“In Search of God” is a book that was written for those who are science driven, or seeking a more technical approach in understanding God. The book is a great read. Highly recommended.
This particular song spoke to me, especially in recent times, based on the truth it speaks. We often forget of the Omnipresent God, whose Love is always there for us to grab hold to, with His Arms wide open. Instead, in our everyday lives, we seek the comforts of this world, to which God says that He is not a part of its ways. He has shown us in so many ways as to how much He shows His Love to us. From waking up to another day to live;to the love of a pet. Or even the flowers and their radiant beauty in the meadows; to the birds that fly in the sky. We keep choosing to put our faith in the temporary things of this world; and putting faith in man who is flawed by its human nature. If we put our faith in a Perfect God, with His Love that is so abundant and merciful, we will no longer “choose the gallows to the aisle”. Through the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, we were given the choice to walk down the aisle to God’s Eternal Paradise; or to the gallows of Eternal Damnation. We can not rely on our own logic and understanding, for it is weak. This is exactly what this song is saying. So we must constantly be in communication with God, so that we can discern the deception that evil is constantly trying to throw at us, so that we fall prey to our sinful, weak human nature. God will help us through His Endless Love to know what will give us victory, to enter His Eternal Paradise.
