In the world today, many seek “The Truth“, to many different things in life. Whether it be to a situation that they are in; or maybe even to something that is within themselves. But I tell you today, that TRUTH can only be found through God. If we rely on our own logic, we will surely stray further and further away in finding it. As human beings we have become so dependent on what we can intellectualize or rationalize; that the current condition to which we see the world today, is the result of relying on that flawed human logic. God has constantly showed us this through all the religious texts out there; to even various event in World History. Our decisions and conclusions resulted in the world that we see today, before our eyes.
As the end of times grow nearer, with each day that goes by, we have to become stronger in our faith in the Creator. The world around us may challenge that faith. But the challenges only make us stronger, and refine us to the greatness that God originally created for us to be, as the Perfection for His Eternal Kingdom. To which was initially seen with Adam & Eve; before they fell to the temptation of Satan. We have to realize that God’s people will be ridiculed and persecuted, with each step that is taken to advance in their path to God. Some may be falsely accused of things that they did not do, as well, just as Jesus was. JESUS’s LIFE, in what He had experienced, and to what He had endured, is what forshadowed to what a CHRISTian may endure, by upholding God’s Divine Laws of Love. Jesus Christ clearly demonstrated with His LIfe, that TRUTH, is not seen or heard with the ways of this world; but felt by a heart that is rooted in the Word of God. With this understanding, anyone can become a CHRISTian. A prime example of someone who understood this was Mahatma Gandhi; who led the largest democracy IN THE WORLD, to independence, in a way of NONVIOLENCE, LOVE, and PEACE. Exactly how Jesus Christ taught us how to live our lives, in a way that is pleasing to the Father of Creation. It is a wide known fact that He took the Teaching of Jesus Christ and adopted them, as his own. And with that, changed the world with his life and purpose.
What many do not understand is that God clearly states that, “He is not of the ways of this world; but His Ways are beyond them. ” What does this mean? It means that The Creator, has no value in the world’s ways, and that His Ways are far superior to that which can be ever imagined to this world. Just look at the things, that no one could ever replicate of God’s Creation:
1. How a child comes into this world.
2. How a blade of grass, has the molecular structure it has.
3. How the human body was designed.
4. How the sky is endless.
5. How the animals live and survive in the wilderness.
Can Man ever CREATE with their own human logic, such things, without imitating what God has already created? Never. And this is proof enough that God exists, and that He has a Truth that is worth relying on Him, to discover. If He says, that He is beyond the world’s ways, the minute number of things that I have mentioned above of God’s Creations, prove this. Then imagine the philosophies He has to offer, as to how we should live….are they going to be of the world’s ways? Imagine the world with His Philosophies:
1. Jesus Christ on His Sermon on the Mount has said, that instead of ” Eye for an Eye ” , I have come to establish a new law. We must, “Turn the other Cheek “.
Did not Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian people put this into practice in order to gain their nation Independence? Eye for an Eye would result in war.
2. Do unto others, as you would have done unto you. Jesus Christ has stated this as the Golden Rule. If we only took this to heart, and adopted this as a personal philosophy, there would not be so many people yearning to be loved in this world. That are feeling so lonely in this world. Jesus Christ, through this Golden Rule, is saying, that God requires us to invest the human heart with each person we encounter in our life path. EVERYONE is equal in God’s Eyes. There is no one more superior than the other. We just take different life paths. However, upon the temptation that Satan had brought to Eden, he introduced one of the 7 deadly sins of PRIDE. And Mankind ran with this sin, to stem off into various others sins to form.
3. We are to love not only those that love us back; but love our enemies, and strangers. We should love others, more than ourselves. SELF LOVE is professed by evil. Jesus Christ, through death of His Own Earthly Body, as the Son of God, showed us that we love, even to the point of death. SELFLESS, SACRIFICIAL LOVE is what is professed by Divinity.
While seeking truth, we have to remember that God has a truth, and it is right in front of us. And it defies, what our human minds could ever imagine. The truth is right there in front of us. But in order to see it for its true value, we have to be rooted in His Ways of Divine Love; to which He says are beyond the ways of the world we live in. And when a heart is rooted in such ways, it will begin to see the true value of the things of this world; and how God views them, as well. Remember the things of value, are those things to which a pricetag is not attached, in its original form. If Man has put a pricetag on something of God’s Creations, that originally did not have one, then it is in direct violation of God’s Laws of Divine Love. Plain and simple. I guess God must be shocked and heartbroken what how far away we, as Mankind, have come from the greatness that we originally were created, by Him, to be. He puts the TRUTH out there, in front of our eyes to see; but many of us prefer to be blind to it. We must open our hearts to see Truth….and seek it with all of our heart.
Something we must remember is while living on this earth, there is a bigger war occurring; and that is within the spiritual realm.
When we have a daily relationship with God, we begin to understand that the most important thing any living thing owns, that is PRICELESS in value, is the soul. The investment of the soul is what outweighs any investment made on this earth. In fact the investment made to the soul requires a lot more sacrifice and investment of the self, than anything that you can own within this earth. It was even paid at the HIGH COST of the shedding of the blood of the Son of the Father of Creation, Jesus Christ. We must understand this very fact, otherwise we would be on the losing side in this spiritual realm.
No matter what this earth may bring, a faith grounded in a relationship with God, will never die. The earthly body may suffer, be beaten, or even tortured….but a soul dedicated in serving God, the Father of Creation, will yearn nothing more than to meet its Creator. Human Nature is one of the biggest things we battle. If we serve a God that is BEYOND the world’s ways, then why do we put so much value in the things of this world? Agreed, we need some to survive. But in a lot of cases today, even our children value things like money, clothes, and the latest phone, more so than the people around them.
It is so sad how far we have come to the greatness that God, created for all of us to be….no one is perfect on this earth. However, we must strive for the greatness that God created for all of us to be…not in the earthly sense….but in the spiritual sense. People have this sense of understanding that fix the outside, then invest on the inside. The truth of the matter is, God does not work in that sense. He wants you to fix what is inside first. That is what is of value to Him.
In a world that can be a bit “not so straight forward”…..there is a Father of Creation, God, Himself, that is very much straight forward. He keeps showing us in so many ways, how much He loves us. To see Him…to taste His Presence…to hear Him…just takes seeking Him. And once given that privilege of tasting….hearing….and seeing His Face….it is our privilege to share that with others. Faith never dies, that is what everyone must understand. A heart grounded in faith…is a heart and soul that strives to better themselves. It is a heart that is humble and meek. NEVER weak…but ALWAYS strong. Earthly parameters never hinder such a spirit…it serves God with everything within themselves….and nothing of this earth gives it greater joy.
Faith NEVER Dies…..because it is a heart rooted in a God that is beyond the world’s ways. And therefore is not bound by earthly parameters. That is what Jesus Christ demonstrated upon His Death on the Cross. And that is how everyone that was inspired by Him and His messages, lived out their lives. Evil will try to convince you otherwise….but the cornerstone of faith, is within ourselves.
Faith NEVER Dies…..a soul grounded in the Father of Creation, the Almighty God, may have a tattered earthly body…but a soul that is bright enough that no one can deny the goodness of God from within…..
In the end of times, we will see more and more of the once unacceptable; becoming accetable; and the once acceptable will become unacceptable. We will see a decline in morality and ethics; and things which once stood for truth, will be mocked and even abolished in some way.
Have you looked at the world today? Children no longer know how to be children. In fact it has come to children having children, in some socities. People have become disposeable; instead of cherished. The awareness of God‘s Existence, is slowly vanishing within the majority; but those that are keeping His Existence alive with their lives…are being persecuted at record highs. I think Martin Luther King Jr. said it best when he said,” It may look like evil is winning, but that is only temporary.”
As God’s People, we must remember what Jesus had to endure to fulfill God’s Purpose for His Life. If He, as the Son of God, was not exempt from the trials and temptations of Man and Evil; how can we expect us to be exempt from such things. Jesus demonstrated through His Life and Death that it is by remaining faithful to God, especially in these moments, that we will conquer Satan and his Evil. By not getting discouraged and blame God for what evil is doing; but by praying even harder for God’s Strength to withstand the test and trial. Remember God NEVER gives us anything that we CAN NOT handle.
Evil can not stand seeing someone getting stronger in their faith. So he will plot and scheme to any extent to break down one of God’s Faithful. It is in these momnts, especially, that we have to remain strong, and go to God for strength. There is POWER in PRAYER. It can provide peace during the most chaotic moments and circumstances. And only people who have detached themselves from the values of this world; and have aligned themselves to the ways of God and His Divine Laws, can truly understand that earthly ways can defeat only the phsyical body, but never a soul that is dedicated to God.
Mahatma Gandhi has said, ” No one can hurt me without my permission.” If you are a person who’s heart is grounded in searching for God…you will understand what he meant by this. It means that when you are focused on a path towards God, nothing of this earth can hurt you; unless you allow for it, especially during moments of trials and hardships. when we believe in a God who says His Ways are beyond the Earth; whom or what on this earth shall we fear (Romans 8:31). So many Christians have died to uphold God’s Laws of Love. It does not matter how Man may scheme against God’s People, in the end God tells us such schemes are not from Him, but from an evil source…..and justice will be His. Remain amongst God’s Faithful, and you willhave the greatest of all warriors fighting for you…..Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”
Jesus said, “I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes.”
Jesus said to them, “If you fast, you will give rise to sin for yourselves; and if you pray, you will be condemned; and if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. When you go into any land and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat what they will set before you, and heal the sick among them. For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth – it is that which will defile you.”
Jesus said, “Men think, perhaps, that it is peace which I have come to cast upon the world. They do not know that it is dissension which I have come to cast upon the earth: fire, sword, and war. For there will be five in a house: three will be against two, and two against three, the father against the son, and the son against the father. And they will stand solitary.”
Jesus said to them, “When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter [the Kingdom].”
