Prosperity. It can be defined in many ways. The title of this entry is how I have defined it, based on what I have seen in my own life, and have observed in my spiritual path. A soul that is at peace, even in the stillness of the night, knows that there is a God, who protects it, when it is bound toward the Path of the Eternal Kingdom. It does not fear death of the earthly body or even coming short in the earthly sense, in resources and riches for providing in their daily needs. It is a soul that gets rest even in the most chaotic times in the earthly sense.
If you have ever noticed, people that we would consider in the earthly sense, as prosperous, do not have a soul that is at peace. In fact many of them would say that they lack the things that “matter in life”, which is what a spiritually enlightened soul is already aware of…which is God’s Divine Laws of Love (ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy). Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, showed us this through His Own Life and Death on the Cross, at Calvary. Those that are spiritual prosperous may reflect a life full of trials and anguish, to those that are prosperous in the earthly sense. A world where God, the Father of Creation, says His Ways are not of the world’s ways but are beyond them, will only see those that are spiritually prosperous, as a people that are cursed by God, when it is quite the contrary. If you look at those that have been spiritually enlightened by God, the Father, will understand that things of this world mean nothing to the Creator, because He can take it away with one swipe of His Hand. They will have a life full of “anguish” and “hardship” because they are fighting a spiritual battle that can not be seen by the human eyes, and heard by the human ears, to which only those that are spiritual deficient can only go by. It does not matter what faith you follow, all that are spiritually guided by God, the Father of Creation, will follow His Divine Laws of Love, which are ways of SELFLESS LOVE, which is unconditional, Nonviolence, and Mercy. Because these are not the ways of this world, a world to which Evil has dominion over, such souls will face opposition from it. Why? Evil wants to take such souls away from God, the Father of Creation, and through its trials, ANGUISH, and HARDSHIPS, take away the spiritually prosperity granted to those souls that are bound by the code of God’s Divine Laws of Love.
If we look at all those that are considered God’s Servants, they ALL were not exempt from earthly trials and hardships; EVEN Jesus Christ, as the Son of God. He took on our hardships, our sin, our trials, out of His UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for humanity, to make us brothers and sisters with Him, in God’s Throne Room. Jesus Christ, endure the torture and the death that He did, out of the SELFLESS LOVE, UNCONDITIONAL MERCY, and to give humanity the chance to escape God’s Great Wrath for those that follow Satan and his ways. This is what CHRIST (to whom that followed the example of Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, and abide by God’s Divine Laws of Love) and ANTI-CHRIST (to whom that follow ways that do not abide by God’s Divine Laws of Love) mean.
A spiritual journey that is devoid of earthly trials and hardships, that is full of earthly riches that serve the self….is a journey that is not on the path to the Eternal Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation. As human beings, we do not see what God, and Jesus Christ, as His Son, see from the Throne Room, up above. Earthly prosperity is attained through the violation of the Divine Laws of Love, of the Eternal Kingdom. There is no ways around that, such a soul will not be at rest. It is will be bound to a world that has set boundaries and parameters to the human mind, and to that which God, the Father of Creation has set! While they may feel they are the enlightened ones, God, the Father of Creation, shows the ways to eternal life, to those that followed His Divine Laws of Love, and those that have violated His Ways, and caused injustices to those that followed His Ways, will one day bow down to Him and His Son, Jesus Christ.
Those that value His Divine Laws of Love, beyond anything of this world…a world to which He has said that His Ways are not a part of, but are a part of the Divine Laws of Love (ways of Unconditional Selfless Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy) will have Jesus Christ, His Son as the Shepard of their souls, and as their Captain, leading them to the immortality that God, the Father of Creation promises. Those that value earthly prosperity, will have another captain, and will be led down the road to God’s Wrath, which are the ways of death; and restrict their knowledge by a box, and a way of life that will have a restless soul. God gives every member of humanity the chance to listen to His Divine Laws of Love…..the Love that Jesus Christ selflessly demonstrated on the Cross at Calvary. We must remember that like all those that walked before us, all of God’s Saints had an earthly life filled with anguish, trials, leading to true humility of the human mind, heart, and soul. Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, showed us the selfless, unconditional love that is present in the Throne Room of God, the Father of Creation, and was not exempt from the earthly trials that we face. So what makes us any better than the Son of God? Who are we to think that we will not have trials and hardships on this earth? If God says His Ways are not of this world, but are beyond them….then should we feel comfortable in our spiritual journeys, when we do not have them? Evil will combat anything that will allow for God’s People or humanity to get out of its grips, remember that. If God’s ways are not of this world….then whose ways are? Therefore, use the spiritual tools that Jesus Christ gave you: 1) The Armor of God; 2) Prayer; 3) Fasting; and 4) Repentance. As long as you keep God, the Father of Creation as the authoritarian in your life, you will what is of value to Him and what is not.
Food for your soul.
We must always keep in mind that we are spiritual beings, and because we are, it is pertinent to keep in close fellowship and communication with the Father of Creation, God Almighty. This is the very reason that we must become stronger in our faith, and become stronger as Prayer Warriors in Christ Jesus. In this season is when we remember the whole Commission of Jesus Christ, the only Begotten Son of God, the Father of Creation. He was God, born in the earthly flesh, in order to die, as the Sacrificial Lamb for the sake of saving Humanity. You see once Satan introduced the very idea of rebelling against God, in making Man to think that they can know as much as the Creator, to elevate themselves to the same level as He, or even plant the seed of doubt that the Creator can be prone to error…Humanity strayed away from the original greatness that it was meant to be. The direct communication that Adam and Eve had with God, the Father of Creation was destroyed upon Adam and Eve accepting Satan’s proposition. Jesus Christ, as the only Begotten Son of God, had to come in the flesh, in order to become the blood covering over the souls of humanity, to protect it.
Once one has understood what the Purpose of Jesus Christ and His Life is…then His Teachings will be very clear…”turning the other cheek”, though hard to do…will become a duty of the soul guided by the Holy Spirit. “Giving till it hurts” or “Giving up all riches to follow Him”…will become clear in the understanding of when He stated that “God says His Ways are not of this world, but are beyond them.” We will have the conviction of the “Comforter” with the individual trials that we face in our lives, and the testimonies through which God, the Father of Creation gives us through them, as a testimony of Him showing His Presence to us during these times; and how Jesus Christ’s Unconditional Love was shown on the Cross, at Calvary; that God’s Forgiveness is endless, giving us the chance to give up all earthly pride to repent of our sinful human nature and its flaws that rebelled against His Divine Laws of Love…to the point of giving us till our last breath within these earthly bodies, to purify the souls within.
Evil will try everything and anything to throw people off of the track of finding the path to the Eternal Kingdom, and discovering the meaning of the Divine Laws of Love. Why you may ask? Because evil knows once a soul discovers their meanings, and the Unconditional Love of God, the Father of Creation, that such souls will never fall for its deception, and will enter into the Eternal Kingdom, a place where Satan and its demons are no longer allowed to enter, and to experience that very same Unconditional Love and Bliss that can be experienced at the very Throne Room of God, the Father of Creation. And because of this, evil will try to get away as many souls as it can, away from God, the Father of Creation, as it to prove Him wrong for loving Humanity so unconditionally…and to never allow for Humanity to enter and experience what it can never experience for itself again.
How will evil prevent those that are bound on to the path? BY TRYING TO GET THE FIGHT OUT THOSE SOULS THAT GOD, THE FATHER OF CREATION HAS RECOGNIZED, THAT ARE BOUND TO HIS ETERNAL KINGDOM. This is done by manipulating the human 5 senses of seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching. Evil will use the weaknesses of people to enhance the manipulations…whether it be grudges, fears, hates, anger, sadness, depression, dislikes of a person, and multiply them x 1000000. It wants to keep prayers warriors so busy with their life circumstances that are physically…mentally…spiritually tired to tap into the direct communication that they have with God, the Father of Creation, in their Prayer Closets. With constant bombardment of earthly trials, evil wants to beat down a soul to the point of hopelessness, desperation, depression, addictions (as escapisms for such things) and saddness. Evil wants humanity to be so confused and tired, so that it will no longer know what is right and wrong…or whether something is good or evil….
For spiritual enlightenment, it requires Quiet Time in prayer and meditation, with God, the Father of Creation. It requires for a soul’s stillness, to yearn for the communication with its Creator. It is an investment of the soul, on a daily basis…so that the Divine Laws of Love take root within them. We must be fully aware of this in order to make time for the investment of strengthening our faith…our souls, so that we will not succumb to the tactics and deception of evil. We must make the time to spend with God, in our Prayer Closets. It is about the souls that are within humanity, not the earthly bodies that we have. We have spent so much time investing in the outer body that we have forgotten to invest in the inner appearance, for once Jesus Christ returns again to determine who deems worthy to enter into the Eternal Kingdom or not. The soul’s purity can only be viewed by God, the Father of Creation…so we must forge ahead my brothers and sisters, on our paths to the Eternal Kingdom. There is no room for those that have an ounce of rebellion or doubt in God, the Father of Creation’s Wisdom. God want wholehearted and true believers in His Divine Laws of Love…not those that are Lukewarm believers that want to half live in the world’s ways with the riches and the parameters that they want to define them; and just blindly going to and from a house of worship and going through the ceremonies to fulfill a religious need. He needs those that invested in learning about the ways of the Eternal Kingdom…about His Divine Laws of Love, to ways to which Jesus Christ showed while He roamed this earth.
The eternal search by all of humanity;
Is the peace of the soul…which gives one sanity.
People seek it through earthly things and ways;
However, “eternal peace is never achieved..” is what many say.
For eternal things can only be obtained;
Through the God’s Divine Laws of Love, and not of evil and the earth’s ways, stained.
Eternal things can not be attained through the ways of this world;
But only through the ways that Divinity has revealed and it is wisdom, unfurled.
This is why those that are bound to the world and its ways can not see;
What Divinity reveals in the prayer closets of those that seek, and become free.
For Divinity is not bound by the world’s ways and sayings;
Such a soul is freed of its shackles and not killed by earthly slayings.
Eternal Peace of the Soul is by the eternal communion established by it and its Maker;
A bond once established will be set aside for the Eternal Kingdom, by Jesus Christ, the Taker.
For only the Creator knows of the innermost intentions and thoughts of a soul;
And establishes His Peace, in those whose intentions are most pure and His Kingdom as its final destination are its goal.
Peace of the Soul is only attained by fellowship with the Creator;
Not earned, achieved, or bought….but a gift for a soul’s loyalty to its Maker.
For it is not always a happy and pleasant path;
However, such souls have meditated and done the math.

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.
