When do you come to God? Is it only when you are in trouble? Or is it when you want something earthly? Is it when you feel sad, and you want it to be taken away? Or only when someone has caused a great injustice to you? Though these are valid times to come to Him, how many times do we go to Him, when there are good times? Or how about when we were able to overcome a trying time? How about even when we wake up to another day to live? Or having a bed to sleep in, food on our tables, and a roof over our heads?
We must remember that God asks us to seek Him, with all of our hearts and minds…our very being. We are to acknowledge Him in our good times and our bad. We are to seek His Forgiveness in our flaws and our wrongdoings. While we roam this earth, in order to remain on the path to the Eternal Kingdom, we must remember that God is the Constant Force that helps us to keep our walks straight to His Eternal Kingdom. We must remember that the end does not justify the means, through His Son, Jesus Christ, He showed us that the path that we take also counts. It does not mean that He does not expect us to commit mistakes or to have flaws, that is why He had to sent Jesus Christ, His Son, to reestablish that pathway back to Him. However, He expects us to admit to them, and to repent for them, so that we can unshackle that ways of Satan and his demons, from us, so that we can travel back on that path to His Eternal Kingdom.
We must remember that God says His Ways are not of the world/earth’s ways, but are beyond them. He does not confine Himself, to the definitions of His Creation of Him. His Ways are Eternal. We are to seek them. His Divine Laws of Love consist of ways that are Nonviolence, Mercy, and Unconditional Love. Through the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, we guides those that seek Him and His Kingdom’s Ways, in a uniform manner that conforms to His Divine Laws of Love.
The human heart can be utterly deceptive, because it can be manipulated by the ways of the human condition, the sinful nature of human nature, that was created by Satan, upon his temptation to Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden. Jesus Christ came to this earth, in order to counter the rebellion in Mankind, that Satan created at that time, in order to separate Humanity from God’s Eternal Kingdom….Jesus Christ died on the Cross, in order to reestablish that pathway, once again. It is up to us to choose, whether we want to seek or not. And even then, it is not enough to just seek, but to seek to the point that it consumes us….to the point that we violate any of God’s Divine Laws of Love that it will prick the inner peace within our own souls.
Do you only come to God, when you need something? Or do you show your interest in Him, even in the happy moments in your life? How much has God become a part of your daily life? Does it come to the point that to involve him and seeking the ways of His Eternal Kingdom have become just as routine as brushing your teeth and eating food to fuel yourself? Has He become the fuel for your soul? Has He become the “food for your soul“?
We must not only seek Him for the earthly riches and things that we want to attain and achieve, because we will only make room for Satan and his demons to take a foot hold in your life, to fractionate the truth that God puts within each soul that he created. We must seek for HIS WILL of our life, since He created that soul, since the time you were placed in your mother’s womb. God sees those who sincerely seek Him; He knows what we need from day to day to live.When we seek Him…He will provide according to His Will of our lives. When we seek His Kingdom in all aspects of our lives, we will have confidence of His Presence of our lives.
Many try to justify the existence of an Omnipresent Being, the Almighty God, by the ever so limiting Human Logic. It would be silly to think that we can justify and find reason with everything that happens within our lives. There will be circumstances that occur that is beyond the logic that we can ever fathom. It takes far more strength to believe that there is something beyond what we can see, hear, smell, taste, and touch with our human senses. It takes far more strength to believe in an Omnipresent Being that poured out Unconditional Love, in the most unconventional of ways. You see it seems that people today have become so complacent in the logic to which we can reason with. However, anyone that declares to be on a spiritual journey will not only see, but know with the innermost of their abilities, that there is something more.
To understand the fullest extent of unconditional love, would lead you to a path of understand and continuously seeking the Omnipresent God, that shows His Mercy and Unconditional Love to us, with each day we wake up….with each day we live. There are just somethings beyond our own understanding. It will bring you to an understanding that that there are things that are far more of value than the things of this world. A spiritual path will only be quenched when our soul has been fed by the unconditional love of the Supreme Being, God the Father of Creation. God touches the hearts of those who seek Him. But many believe…and want this path to be easy. However, Jesus Christ said, that the path to the Eternal Kingdom of God, is a path less travelled. A path less travelled means a path that is not followed by the majority. It is because God has said that His Ways are beyond the ways of this world. And to those of us that are called, and continuously seek, we should know that Satan and his demons will be not too far back of us, in trying to bring us down from this path. We should always be mindful, that with each step we get closer in God’s Path to the Eternal Kingdom, that evil will take one step forward in trying to grab you 10 steps back in that same path.
God never said that our paths to His Kingdom will be easy. This is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life and Death on this earth, as His Son. If Jesus Christ Himself was not exempt, who are we to think that we will be? God is a Loving God…never mistake that. With one swipe of His Hand, He can wipe out all of the Universe. But out of His Love…His Unconditional Love, He sees that there is something worth saving in Mankind. This is why Jesus Christ had to come to die on the Cross at Calvary….to reestablished that pathway between Mankind and God, the Father of Creation, once again; to which Satan originally destroyed by tempting and Eve falling prey to that temptation. He was giving Mankind another chance. Christ Himself knew, that a life on this earth was difficult….he endured…so that He can empathize with the plight of Mankind. But also showed us through His Life Example, how to overcome and conquer Evil. The life Example that He left, is far from easy to do…however, He did show that it was possible. We just have to remain focused on God, the Father of Creation. Realize that He sees everything from His Throne…all He asks is to repent for each violation against His Divine Laws of Love.
Earthly power is nothing in comparision to Spiritual Power….this is what Jesus Christ showed us on the Cross, at Calvary. The logic that comes with spirituality, is a logic that can not solely depend on earthly logic, but a mixture of the two. God reads the innermost thoughts and hearts of Man…..Contrary to what I have heard in the past from those bound to the ways of this world, God is truly a loving God…..God brings us through various stages within our spiritual journeys. So we must understand that living a life according to the ways of God’s Divine Laws of Love, will require us to go through the Refiner’s Fire….to get undergo anguish, and to go through the wilderness…but as long as we rely on Him…we will end up in the right place.
As days goes by, we see how things are beginning to go further away from the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) has created for humanity to be. We see, as each day goes by, we see how fewer and fewer people know what God’s Divine Laws of Love are…or even know the definitions of things like Unconditional Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy.
Humanity and the biology to which God had originally created Mankind to possess, is what gave humanity its connection to the Divine Father of Creation. This is what gives humanity the attributes of the Divine Laws of Love, which are ways of the Eternal Kingdom. Unconditional Love, which is the very love that Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) showed us on the Cross, at Calvary, is only the attribute that God, Himself showed that is the pathway….to the gates of His Eternal Kingdom. It is a love that is selfless, sacrificial, and even boundless. It doesn’t “look out for the self”…but gives endlessly until it hurts. A human being that knows of God’s Divine Laws of Love understands that the Eternal Kingdom of God is the ultimate destination, and that the pathway to His Eternal Kingdom, will require for us to go through the anguish, and trials through which Satan uses in order to take those bound on this path to the Eternal Kingdom…off of the path. Did not Jesus Christ shows us this through His Own Life? Did He not leave us with the Life Example that God’s Divine Laws of Love, go against the grain of the ways of this world? Does not Scripture tell us that God’s Ways do not conform to the ways of this world? We should always keep in mind, that Unconditional Love in its truest form….and loyalty to God, the Father of Creation, demonstrates a SELFLESS Love.
We must remember that God reestablished His Pathway to Humanity through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, His Son, on that day, on the Cross at Calvary. It is so important to understand what Jesus Christ did on the Cross, and what He showed Humanity while He roamed on this earth, with His Life. We must keep in mind, that Jesus showed us that in our Prayer Closets, we have our direct communication back to God, the Father of Creation. If we look through out history, those that have enlightened by God, the Father of Creation all led their lives in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love….and universally led their lives in the same way. God’s inspires, and enlightens , those that seek Him, in the same exact way. This is why I believe, love if it comes with the inspiration of God’s Divine Laws of Love, will be expressed in a uniform manner….it is unmistakeable…..and undeniable. Never mistake that of God. This is why He says that His People will know that their lives here, are simply a pitstop…and that they should become “passersby”, showing His Divine Laws of Love in all those that they encounter in their earthly lives; and their final destination is to the ETERNAL Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation. We must understand, that God says His Ways are beyond the ways of this world…this is why there are fewer and fewer people recognizing and living by the Divine Laws of Love (ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy). It is all about the self these days. If we have dedicated our lives and our souls, towards pursuing the Eternal Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation, we must recognize that we are following the ways of a God, who says that His Ways are beyond the ways of this world. He also says in Scripture that “Those that are first, will be last…and those that are last on this earth, will be first…” Did not Jesus Christ, show us this through His Own Life, and Death?
Keep up the fight of faith….because God the Father of Creation sees all; and one day for all the injustices done by those that are lost, and bring them to God’s Children for following His Divine Laws of Love, will bow down to Jesus Christ His Son……the trials and the anguish are required to unbind our earthly selves from the ways of this world, to which God has said His Ways…His Divine Laws of Love, are not a part of. This is what Jesus Christ demonstrated through His Own Life. He showed us to uphold God’s Divine Laws of Love (ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy) should be upheld at all costs….even if it means death to the earthly body.
Mother Teresa was a woman that boldly demonstrated her faith, in the Almighty God, (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) through her life and ministry. She answered her call at the age of 12, and began pursuing her ministry by the age of 17. She travelled half way across the world, from Albania to India (where she died) in order to pursue her ministry of feeding the orphans, the homeless, and the hungry of Calcutta, India; and eventually around the world. She took the pain of her past, and put it towards helping those who have felt that same pain, to empathize with those that have walked the same shoes that she has.
Mother Teresa had shown the world the impact of random acts of kindness, as well as answering God’s Call can have in the world; as well as Humanity. She was able to become a witness to all of humanity, of the Unconditional Love that Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshua, Yeshu Christu) showed us on the Cross, at Calvary. Mother Teresa dedicate her life to showing all those that she encountered, as she walked on this earth, that they were not alone, though the world abandoned them. She adopted orphans, provided a home for the homeless and the elderly, and even provided food for the hungry. She not only believed, but lived the lifestyle of the unconditional love that Jesus Christ professed through His Ministry, while He roamed this earth. She believed that as one person, she can spark the flame to inspire all those that she encountered to do the same. She believed in all circumstances in life, that we all have the choice to choose to answer to God with how we live our lives on this earth, while we have it. We should not be shaken with what evil tries to throw at us, in order to discourage us off of the path the God (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) called for us to follow. We are to rise above the sinful human nature, that will try to block us from what the Holy Spirit is trying to guide us to do.
We must remember, we should not be constantly refining our own faith. Evil will try to afflict us with so many doubts about God and His Ways; even about our own spiritual journeys, and make us doubt what God has already confirmed within us. We should always remain focused on the Divine Laws of Love, and the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. In the end, God will not measure the earthly success that we have achieved on this earth, but how we remained faithful to the ways of the Eternal Kingdom, and to God.
Mother Teresa, through her understanding of her own faith, and through her ministry, showed all of humanity the importance of unconditional love and empathy. She was so successful in her ministry because of the empathy she was able to demonstrate to those she ministered through, in the testimony she carried in her heart….and the conviction that God, the Father of Creation had shown her, through her own life experiences. She remembered how alone she felt….how less loved she felt by the world, when she was amongst the poor, as a child….or felt orphaned when her father passed away. In a time where women rarely took on any leadership roles (especially in the eastern part of the world) the conviction that God, the Father of Creation, gave her through her testimony is what catapulted her to international ministry that she established, which inspired millions. for many generations. This is the fruit that she bore the Eternal Kingdom of God, in her ministry. She donned on the clothing of the street sweepers and the public toilet cleaners of the Calcutta, India slums….so that she can become the servant of Humanity, in addition to taking the oaths required of a Catholic Nun. Though many claim that she struggled with her faith at times, those who are on the spiritual path to the Eternal Kingdom know what Scripture in the Holy Bible dictates of a soul that is bound to the Eternal Kingdom. Such a soul has to go through the Refiner’s Fire, to break itself from the world’s way, to which God the Father of Creation states that He is not a part of. Such a soul destined for the Eternal Kingdom, will struggle with the ways of this world, because they do not belong to it…but belong to a more heavenly realm, which dictates to be in conflict with the ways of the world, to which God, the Father of Creation states He is not a part of, since His Divine Laws of Love are not a part of. She never did the things she did for the sake of gainly earthly gain or fame…but because her souls knew no other way to live but to follow God’s Call for her.
We must always remind ourselves when we daily listen for God to speak us, just as Mother Teresa did, and demonstrated
Those that God calls, undergo great earthly trials. This is for the purpose of refining one’s faith in Him; to rid the soul of such people that are called, from the ways of this world, to which God (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) said He is not a part of. It is not about “proving oneself to the Father”; as many nonbelievers may say…it is about refining the soul to the next level of enlightenment in knowing the Existence of a Higher Force, the Omnipresent God.
If we look at the lives of prophets, saints, and even Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshua, Yeshuay) Himself, they were all not exempt from undergoing earthly trials. Of course Jesus Christ underwent them with a predestined Purpose, in order to save all of Humanity from being lost from the presence of the Omnipresent God (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah). God always knows the extent of our strength more than we know of ourselves. So there will be times, where we will be tested, beyond our comfort zone, in order for God to show us to the next step in our paths to His Eternal Kingdom. The only way we can survive these tests is by not relying on our own human strength, but by relying on the strength through which, Our Father, can provide to us. This is how Jesus Christ got through His Earthly trials, while He roamed on this earth. Our human strength is not meant to withstand these trials; our human logic is not meant to rationalize all the inner workings of such trials; and our human senses are not meant to withstand some of the trials that may cause us to fail them.
We have to remember that trials in our lives, are meant to refine our spirits, our faith. It is a requirement to break away from the ways of a world that has been lost to darkness, and with very few who know of the light of the Eternal Kingdom. In fact, Christ did say, “Those that are considered last, will be considered in my Father’s Kingdom; and those that are considered first, will be considered last.” It serves as a reminder to those that are called to the path that we should not rely on our own abilities, our own strength and logic, to live our lives; but to always be aware of the Omnipresent God, and how the Holy Spirit guides us to live our lives in accordance to the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. Such ways conform to the ways of the Divine Laws of Love, which consist of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy.
Trials are meant to show and provide a testimony to show those who are enduring the trials, to become more convicted in the Unconditional Love and Mercy of God, the Father of Creation; and to serve as witnesses and beacons of Light, in the Dark World and its ways. We must remember that we must take up our own crosses in life, to break ourselves from conforming to the ways of this world, in order to find ourselves on the path to the Eternal Kingdom, which are the Divine Laws of Love. The only way to conquer such trials is with prayer and repentance. One of the biggest obstacles of mankind is the sin of pride. This sin can come is many different forms; some that are obvious, others that are not so obvious. We must be mindful of this sin, and the only way we can be mindful of this is through our spiritual paths.
“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” -1 John 4:1
There will come a time where it will be very hard to immediately discern what is of evil; and what is from God. Only someone that has dedicated their life to feeding their soul with the Word of God, the Father of Creation, will have the tools, and the knowledge of knowing this. God reads hearts of humanity, everyday, and He sees who is worthy of such knowledge from His Eternal Kingdom, and who is not. He gives us till our last breaths on this earth, to allow for us to qualify ourselves for such Eternal Knowledge. It is not through acts, or deed of good nature. It is through that loyalty of seeking and searching for His Knowledge, that will immediately translate to our conduct and behavior in everyday life. Through the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, a loyal soul will have this desire, to see the ways of the Eternal Kingdom….in the ways of the Divine Laws of Love. Many evil spirits will try to disguise themselves as such spirits, in order to fool weak souls, away from their search, and as a result, off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom. This is why St. John instructs us in the Scripture above.
When a soul has been found worthy by the Holy Spirit to take root within, it will not know any other way to live, even if the human life is manipulated by its 5 senses. Even if the flesh gives in to a moments worth of what is considered weak (to a spiritually enlightened soul) it will immediately feel the violation, through the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Satan can only manipulate earthly things, and what the earthly human 5 senses can sense, because he knows this can cause weakness within a soul that is destined to the Eternal Kingdom.
“For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.” -Galatian 5:17
A soul that is constantly in prayer, and feeding on the Word of God, will be lead by the Holy Spirit. Does it mean that we may at times fall weak to the flesh, yes, of course! This is what makes us human. However, what is the difference between an enlightened and an unenlightened human being is the way one feeds their soul. Do they feed it through pleasing the flesh, by pleasing the 5 human senses; or through the soul? Does it mean in order to keep the soul on track to the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, that the earthly life will be difficult…at times, yes. Very much so. God said that His Ways do not conform to the world’s ways, but are beyond them.
So how do we test the spirits? One, check their knowledge of a code of conduct against what your soul tells you what is in correlation to the Word of God or not. Also, have people that you can go to, so that you can check that, in the event it is beyond what you know spiritually. A personal philosophy is always reflected in one’s daily life, and in how they treat others. It is also emanated from the soul one owns and possesses. These are things that can not be denied by a soul guided by Divinity.
You see God has put in all of these safe houses and tools within a soul that has been found fit for the Eternal Kingdom. And the path to the Eternal Kingdom, as demonstrated by Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshua, Yeshuay), is not an easy one; at the same time, the path to Hell is quite easy to follow. We must always remember that, and decide with each day we are given to live, by God, the Father of Creation, whether we willingly, as Jesus Christ did, take on the difficult path or not; and heed to the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, to avoid the evils that we come across in our daily lives, that seek for us to fall off of the path that we were always destined to be on.
When we become “enlightened” it means that there is a recognition of the existence of a Higher Source, and there is a Higher Code of Conduct that what we see and hear. When it comes to the Divine Laws of Love, we uphold them at all costs, even if it means to the point of death. Evil will try to break you down in every earthly aspect of your life. However, those who are truly enlightened will not put value in such things. God asks us to look beyond the 5 senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching; and to “feel truth”. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and a constant feeding of the soul through prayer and the Word of God, we will see that the Divine Laws of Love are the ruling parameters in the Divine Eternal Kingdom.
If we look at the life and death of Jesus Christ, and even the saints that are declared, their lives demonstrated such earthly parameters that would resemble simplicity in every aspect, from the heart and mind of the individual walking the path to the Eternal Kingdom; and even a life that does not value worldly things, for its happiness. Such souls never feel alone, because of recognizing the Omnipresence of a Higher Source that controls and conducts the Eternal Kingdom, in the Divine Laws of Love. Those that are not truly enlightened will be imprisoned by the parameters of the world, to which God, the Father of Creation, does not hold Himself to. Such souls will see earthly shortcomings as failures, where God says His Blessings are not of this world; and He is not bound by this limited world. Those that are enlightened by the Eternal Divine Laws of Love will see no boundaries in achieving their own happiness, and as a result, though downtroddened only but for a moment (due to Evil’s attempts to discourage such an enlightened soul off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom) will bounce back up due to the presence of the Holy Spirit within such a soul.
We must remember that true enlightenment comes from understanding that there is more to eternity than the boundaries set by this world. It is beyond what we sense with the 5 senses of the human body. We always seek a Higher Source for the wisdom that is ageless, and drives the logic of Eternity. God does things that are beyond the imagination of any Creation’s logic and ways of thinking. This is why He is the Creator. He does not conform to the ways of His Creations; but we are called to strive to seek His ways. So if God says His Ways are beyond the world’s ways, why would His Rewards conform to the ways of the world that He says that are not His? We should reconsider our path to Enlightenment if we are not hit by trials, to refine our thought processes…..because Satan never feels threatened or insulted by a soul that conforms to his ways, therefore no trials come to souls that do not threaten his goal of taking as many souls away from the path to the Eternal Kingdom. False hope and understanding will come to those that depend on earthly rewards and ways, for their faith on the path to the Eternal Kingdom. If we look at the lives of all those that dedicated themselves to a life serving and seeking the path of the Eternal Kingdom and Enlightenment, we will see that such souls do not think in carnal ways; they will value things that are considered simple by those imprisoned to value the things of this world…a world whose ways that God said His Ways are not a part of.
