The highest point in a spiritual journey is understanding that there is a Higher Force, that reigns above all the ways and things of this world, where the abundance of Love, Mercy, and Nonviolence comes from. However, there is also the realization that this Source is so Pure and Holy, that we realize our own flaws and imperfections…that we are not worthy to stand in front of such a source, as we are at the time of birth. The realization of how flawed human nature is, and how ungodly we are.
For this reason, we are to not accept the flaws that are brought to light to us by God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) , but to continuously repent. Repent for our flaws…repent for our wrongs that we commit to another person of our fellow man. It takes this humbling, to be a Servant for the Eternal Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation. The Unconditional Love that Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshua, Yeshu), His Son, showed all of Mankind on the Cross, is about giving Mankind another chance to make this realization of how holy and pure God is, and how flawed our human nature is. He is giving us another chance to turn away from such sinful ways. Repentance requires a suffering…..a torment of the flesh, to purify the soul. It is within our daily lives, bringing things to which is hidden to the surface. The carnal sin of PRIDE is what allows for some to think that professes to accept the flaws…that it is too late to make things right. No, in the Eyes of the Omnipresent God, there is always the time to make things right, once your wrong is brought to your conscience. Unconditional Love is not about accepting the good and the bad, and that there is no need to change…..we should remember that God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) sees the innermost thoughts, actions, and intentions of the mind and heart.
Repentance is about recognizing what happened in the Garden of Eden, by evil, to Humanity. What many do not understand is is that this rebellion was passed down generation to generation. Yes, sin can be hereditary. And because of this, it can not be broken by our own human strength and will; but by spiritual strength and God’s Will. To know of the flaws of human nature, of our own being is have the presence of the Holy Spirit being granted upon us, to discern the deception of evil, not only within this dim world, but also within ourselves. In the presence of God, we would all crumble, because of the sinful human nature, that we had not repented for….this is how Pure and Holy, God (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) is. It took a Sinless Jesus Christ, to be the shock absorber of the sins of Humanity, to give us another chance to change from our sinful ways. Once day we will all be held accountable to the Father of Creation, through Jesus Christ His Son, each and every one of us. It would not matter who made you do what or say something (we all have the freewill to chose). To stand before the Judgement Seat of the Holy Eternal Kingdom, will bring us to our knees when we stand before the Holy Throne; and all things in our life will flash before us, to where all of our flaws that was seen by the very Eyes of the Father of Creation had accounted for; and what we did not account for. While we see 10 of our own flaws, the Holy and Pure God has seen 10 x 10.
God sees whose heart has been repentant, and who has the intention to be repentant. Because this is a heart and soul that recognizes the authority of a Sovereign God, the Father of Creation, whose Kingdom’s Ways abide in the Divine Laws of Love, ways that are Nonviolent, Merciful, and Unconditional Love. People often mistake that the definition of such things are those of the earthly sense…but a spiritually enlightened soul knows that Divinity abides not of the earthly ways, but of the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. Just as Jesus Christ showed us with His Life and Death, we are to humble ourselves to the point of being “passer bys” in this life…in serving others. To rid all pride, which comes in all kinds of forms. This requires to be the last on this earth…in all its ways.
The Legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (Unconditional Love and Nonviolence as that demonstrated by Mahatma Gandhi and their Teacher, Jesus Christ)
As a man in the modern day Nonviolence Movement, we observe the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
He admits that he learned his philosophy from his preceptor, Mahatma Gandhi; who both admit took the teachings of Jesus Christ as their code of conduct. Nonviolence…..unconditional love are all universal messages that withstand the sands of time, yet still so hard for our human nature to yield to.
A testimony is given by God, as a testament to His Existence and His Great Love, in a world that is slowly getting dim, and forgetting who the Father of Creation is. It is given place the conviction of His Existence, and to share it with others to know of His Existence, and of His Unconditional Love.
A testimony is also given as a tool in the ministry of someone who has chosen the path to the Eternal Kingdom, to show proof of such Unconditional Love, that can be found and given by the God, the Father of Creation; and to those given this testimony to be given 3 things:
- The Conviction of becoming a beacon for the very same Unconditional Love that God, the Father of Creation showed us through the triumph of the Testimony.
- We are given a window to God’s Infinite Wisdom, which demonstrates that His Ways are not of the World’s Ways, but are beyond them. Those that are given a testimony are obligated to share the piece of knowledge that God has shown them.
- This is tool given to the ministry of the person, to help others in similar situations.
God shows His Existence to those that endure for His Name’s Sake. While God is a loving and merciful God; He is also a Holy and Pure God. Therefore, any impurity seen in human nature, and the ways of this world can not stand before His Holy Throne. When His Son, Jesus Christ ministered to people on this earth, He showed us the importance of continuous repentance for our sinful human nature; because God is that Holy. We are to uphold and value His Divine Laws of Love to the extent of taking part in His Sufferings, which are the result of God’s Ways shining and being denied by the sinful human nature of those that deny the Divine Laws of Love, in a dim, evil driven world.
Remember, what we experience on this earth, are the life circumstances that are given to us, as a test for refining the sinful human nature. We are given the chose through our freewill everyday, to chose to follow the Divine Laws of Love or not, based on our reactions to the life circumstances given to us. These are not rewards….because God’s Rewards do not conform to the ways of this world. At the same time, they are not punishments…but, just like any other parent, He does show us reproof or discipline, to change from our sinful human nature.
Our testimony, then becomes a tool for our ministry, on this earth.
DEFINITION OF “FAIR”: (according to Oxford Dictionary) “Appropriate for the circumstances”.
DEFINITION OF “JUST”: (according to Oxford Dictionary) “Base on or behaving according to what is morally right”
We often associate one with the other. In the case of God the Father of Creation (Yahweh, Jehovah, Devum), He does not conform His Eternal Kingdom’s Ways to the ways of the Earth; His Creation…He is beyond them, and sees beyond what the human eyes and hears can see…hear….comprehend. Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) said some quite similar in his parable of the Weeds Being Planted Amongst the Wheat Matthew 13:24-30 :
24 Jesus told them another parable: “The Kingdom of heaven is like this. A man sowed good seed in his field. 25 One night, when everyone was asleep, an enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. 26 When the plants grew and the heads of grain began to form, then the weeds showed up. 27 The man’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, it was good seed you sowed in your field where did the weeds come from?’ 28 ‘It was some enemy who did this,’ he answered. ‘Do you want us to go and pull up the weeds?’ they asked him. 29 ‘No,’ he answered, ‘because as you gather the weeds you might pull up some of the wheat along with them. 30 Let the wheat and the weeds both grow together until harvest. Then I will tell the harvest workers to pull up the weeds first, tie them in bundles and burn them, and then to gather in the wheat and put it in my barn.’”
God gives all the opportunity to change; however, He is very much aware of the Evil and its constant sabotage of His Children, while on this earth; to throw them off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom. One way that evil tries to manipulate our human nature to commit violations of God’s Divine Laws of Love, is by making fairness and justice synonymous with one another. This is how “eye for an eye” has been justified, to result in many violations in God’s Divine Laws of Love (Nonviolence, Mercy, Unconditional Love). This is also why Jesus Christ said, (Mattew 5:38-39) 38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But now I tell you: do not take revenge on someone who wrongs you. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, let him slap your left cheek too.”
God’s Children are required to “take the higher road”, to live in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love at all costs, even if it means earthly harm. It is having an unwaivering faith in the God, the Father of Creation, (Yahweh, Jehovah, Devum) that His Ways of the Eternal Kingdom outweigh anything that this earth can offer, even when our own earthly circumstances seems dim. We see this over and over again, in the illustration of the lives of many of the Prophets found in the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible.
What my life has taught me is that life is not always fair; but even in these moments we are meant to remain faithful to the Divine Laws of Love. This requires SPIRITUAL STRENGTH that is far more greater and stronger than our own HUMAN STRENGTH. With spiritual strength we will be able to “turn the other cheek”; just as Jesus Christ’s disciples did….as they followed the instruction of the Scripture above by Jesus Christ…their….our… Guru…Master….Rabbi….to the point of an earthly death. God knows it will not be easy, but He asks us to refine ourselves, and rid ourselves of the sinful human nature that we were born with, based on the temptation and falling to sin and rebellion, by Adam and Eve.
However, for the faithfulness to God’s Divine Laws of Love, God has promised that one day all injustice will bow down to Jesus Christ, His Son…which means that Justice will be served by Him, as the Father. He has given His Son, the full Authority of the Eternal Kingdom to carry the injustices that He saw were carried out to His Children. We should be constantly be aware of the presence of the Omnipresent God, who sees everything, even the things that are kept hidden in the earthly sense. We should always be aware of the cause of Jesus Christ, which has always been to follow God’s Divine Laws of Love, to every extent…with the confidence that despite losing everything in the earthly sense, that God will provide everything, in the Eternal Kingdom. It will requires tears to be shed….but God sees and counts each one, that is shed out of fighting the sinful flesh, to uphold His Divine Laws of Love.
Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, as the Member of the Most High Court of the Eternal Kingdom, came to this earth, and demonstrated to the utmost extent of how much God’s (Yahweh, Jehovah, Devum) Ways do not conform to the ways of this world. In fact, whatever we may hold in high earthly value, may not be held in the same esteemed value in the Eyes of God, and His Eternal Kingdom.
As the King of all Kings, He was born in a cow’s feeding trough, in the cold, outside. His parents’ friends to join in the birth of their son were nomad Shepards and a Shepard Boy, with the animals of the stable they were in; joined by the 3 Kings of the East who were given the visions from God, of who this Baby was to be for Mankind and all of Humanity.
We must understand that God’s Ways are beyond the world’s ways, and to understand the life of Jesus Christ requires more than going to Church, or reading about Him. It is about transforming to His Ways within the Divine Laws of Love, in mind, body, and soul. While being persecuted from His Birth to be killed, till His Adult Life, in His Crucifixion on the Cross, God showed His Ways are beyond the earthly ways…and earthly measures have no value in His Eternal Kingdom.
MERRY CHRISTMAS; AND LET US CONTINUE TO REMEMBER THE ENTIRE STORY OF CHRISTMAS, IN ITS DETAILS AND STORYLINE, TO SEE GOD’S LOVE OF HUMANITY, THROUGH HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST…..WHO WAS BORN, LIVED, AND DIED FOR THE SAKE OF GOD’S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

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.
THE POWER OF THE PERSONAL TESTIMONY THAT GOD CUSTOMMADE FOR YOU….
From the moments of affliction, we have the choice to make it a moment of human self pity, or to see the lesson or wisdom that God is trying to show us during this time, to which He allows for us to break away from the ways of this world. It is through the trials of this earth, that God, allows for us to make the choice to learn what He teaches, if we ALLOW for Him to. He never does anything without giving us the choice, to use our freewill. He teaches in these moments to seek the Divine Laws of Love. In the moments of affliction, especially when someone else we know is afflicting the trial on us, God takes note to see if we go to the Old Testament’s (before Jesus Christ’s time) of “Eye for an Eye”; or if we call ourselves as the Peacemakers, do we “turn the other cheek”. Jesus Christ said in His Sermon on the Mount that He had come here to change the law of “eye for an eye”; and that it is required for us to turn the other cheek. So with Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) the entire philosophy of “eye for an eye” was no longer valid. Wrath is up to God, not us, as Man. Jesus Christ went to the extent of receiving a sentence that He did not deserve, and died of it….to show the extent to which we were to do this. Mahatma Gandhi, though being Hindu, but openly admitting taking the teachings of Jesus Christ as his own had said it best by saying:
“Noncooperation with Evil is just as much as our responsibility, as it is to do good.”
Even he understood what God’s Divine Laws of Love meant, in ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. It is more than words, it is a change of heart, which will be seen and felt by the actions witnessed by all of that born again soul. Even evil can not deny such a soul. A born again soul does not dictate to others that they can not change their mistakes from the past, or to love them as they are. This is what evil dictates, to accept in the darkness that is in human nature. God says, He knows the purity to which He originally created Mankind to be, as initially seen in the Garden of Eden, in Adam and Eve, before they took on the temptation of sin introduced by evil. God knows the original greatness that He created for Mankind to be, which is why it is our duty to serve others…to endure trials to rid ourselves from the darkness that we were born with, in human nature. We are to keep on refining and changing ourselves, with the goal of our Example, Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu). This is what Gandhi meant….we are to change, out of our love for seeking the Divine Truth, and not settling for Evil’s intention to remain in our sinful human nature, which is full of wrath, hatred and violence. But it is our duty to not cooperate with evil, at all costs, to the point of which Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, demonstrated with His Own Life…to the point of death. If God says His Ways are not of the world’s ways but are beyond them, that means we our so conscious of our souls belonging to God, and His Eternal Kingdom, that we realize that our sole purpose is to seek the ways of the Divine Laws of Love to the point of not caring how much is inflicted to the earthly body.
The Unseen God, knows even the deepest and most inner thoughts of our hearts, minds and souls…and will judge accordingly. Human logic is so restricted that many can not see beyond what the human 5 senses can provide them. These are the things that evil can manipulate. But when you believe in an Unseen God, you will begin to see the things of this world for its true value within the Eternal Kingdom. And through each trial given on this earth, where God separates you from the logic of this world, He gives us the opportunity to see if we choose to seek the Divine Laws of Love of the Eternal Kingdom or not. This is the conviction He provides through a personal testimony through which one has used their freewill to choose to see God’s Wisdom in the trial, and become born again from it.
Yes we are to forgive everyone. Even those who harm us. But God does say that any wrong should not be tolerated, especially with the knowledge He provides through the conviction of a personal testimony. It only knows truth, and nothing else. And will not tolerate any violations to the Divine Laws of Love (ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy)…either caused by others or within themselves. So beware, evil will try to convince and convict those who are followers of the Omnipresent God’s Divine Laws of Love, that they do not unconditionally love. Not true…..there is unconditional love…but not unconditional approval for what they represent in their thoughts, actions, and words. God is so pure, that any speck of impurity can not stand before His Presence in the Eternal Kingdom. And we are to keep changing and refining ourselves in accordance to God’s Divine Laws of Love.
The minute God reveals to us the wrong we committed to someone, even if it was many years ago, it is our obligation in front of God, to make it right. We are held accountable for each piece of knowledge that God reveals to us…and any hinderance to carrying out that knowledge is only a hinderance of that soul, caused by evil. Remember Evil’s ways are restricted to the ways of this world..which means they are only temporary; the Unseen Omnipresent God’s Ways are Permanent and Eternal.
