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.
As the world around you tells you, as a follower of God’s Divine Laws of Love, that you are weak in believing in an Unseen Force, for the sake of seeking for an escape; or to not react out of the sinful human nature (in ways of vengeance, wrath, and anger), God nudges such souls that His Ways are beyond the world’s ways. As He showed through the life examples of all those that have found the existence of the Omnipresent God, they have found that there is more to Eternal Life than the ways of this world. To find eternal peace and happiness requires to look beyond the world’s ways, and the ways of the sinful human nature.
God sees and knows the hearts of His Children, and those that are destined to enter the gates of the Eternal Kingdom. However, He wants to give everyone the opportunity to enter, therefore, only revealing to His Children that have understood His Divine Laws of Love, what He expects of them, in order to enter through His Gates. He expects His Children to wholeheartedly believe in His Promises to them, despite what the world around them, tells them. Their confidence in the promises through which God the Father of Creation showed through Jesus Christ, His Son, is what is expected of those destined for the Eternal Kingdom. God does not conform to the ways of His Creation; but we were expected to conform to His Divine Laws of Love, which are the ways of the Eternal Kingdom.
People who often see and living alongside those destined to the Eternal Kingdom, see them as weak and worthless; this is because the conduct themselves the way the Jesus Christ showed us, through His Earthly Life, as the Son of God; which are ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. At the same time, honoring the commandments of God, the Father of Creation. When one has found the confidence in God, the Father of Creation’s, Promises, then such a way of life comes with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, otherwise such a soul will not be in peace until it follows the path of the Divine Laws of Love.
So, keep investing the in the soul, because it’s fate is what is being fought over. Feed your soul in the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. Have faith in the shield of Protection through which Jesus Christ provided, by shedding His Blood, on the Cross at Calvary.
In this day and age, people often only want to remember the loving portion of God. It is true, GOD IS LOVE. However, the entire reason as to why Jesus Christ had to come, and die on the Cross, in Calvary was to reconnect Humanity to God (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum), the Father of Creation. It is because of the sinful nature that was birthed in the Garden of Eden, by the sin committed by Adam and Eve, that we, as humanity are born as sinners. As a result, we naturally rebel against God’s Divine Laws of Love, and to avoid violating them, we must tap into the connection to which Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) reestablished with His Death on the Cross, in Calvary.
Because He is Holy….He can not tolerate any purposefully done rebellion against His Divine Laws of Love. So once we have the wisdom received either through someone else trying to witness His Divine Laws of Love to you; or if you have heard it yourself, and decided to IGNORE…or to become IGNOR-ant to that. We are to continuously repent for our weaknesses in practicing the Divine Laws of Love. As we have seen through out the Old Testament of the Holy Bible, God has wiped out entire cities, towns, and even civilizations for their constant rebellion against Him, through the many acts demonstrated as injustices against humanity, and the mistreatment of those that do decide to comply to God’s Divine Laws of Love. We are flawed as God’s Creations. We are sinners. Once we are genuinely in tune with the Divine Laws of Love, of God, the Father, and His Eternal Kingdom, we will truly understand this, and become humbled in His Presence; which means understanding that this is all of the time, in front of an Omnipresent God (Jehovah, Devum, Yahweh).
Many talk about how God’s Love is endless. This is true. It truly is to the point that He gave up His Son, Jesus Christ, to become the sacrificial lamb for humanity, and for those that believe, the blood that He shed on the Cross becomes the blood covering (shield) of those that understood what He did, from evil. This is how Great our God’s Love is….for His Children….those in Humanity.
At the same time, God is Pure and Holy. This is how He is the source of all Love. Nothing impure or unjust can stand before Him. Though God, being our Father, and seeing all from His Throne in the Eternal Kingdom, and being able to see 100% of our flaws, He still gives us till our last breath in our earthly lives to repent for all those flaws that we can see, or those that is brought before us, through our spiritual journeys, and the wisdom that He allows to be endowed upon us through them. He gives us this choice to follow His Wisdom…or to rebel against it, everyday.
God is Love…but He is also Holy. Repent everyday.
Just As The Many Before Us Have, We Too, Those Who Are Heaven Bound Will Be Considered the Least of This World
When God says His Ways do not conform to the world’s ways, don’t you think He means that? The many Prophets and Disciples that walked before us, illustrated this with their very earthly lives, with the transformation of their spirits and hearts. With true repentance, God will allow for a soul to be transformed in such a way, that it can only follow the Divine Laws of Unconditional Love, to which our Lord Jesus Christ, demonstrated on the Cross, at Calvary.
Once sin was introduced and carried out in the Garden of Eden, this is when God decided to separate His Divine Ways from the ways of this world. Is there remanants and evidence of His Ways on the Earth, yes…of course. Afterall it is His Creation. However, sin was not meant to coexist with His Creation, yet it creeped in. This is why God says that His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but beyond them. We must understand that this means, at times in order to uphold God’s Divine Laws of Love, we may need to go against the grain; that we must be mindful as to the WHY we do certain things; and being faithful in the everyday things to His Divine Laws of Love. At the same time, going against the grain will require for us to not cooperate with the ways that violate His Divine Laws of Love. A soul rooted in God’s Divine Laws of Love of the Eternal Kingdom, can not exist in any other way. We should hold ourselves accountable for our actions in every way, so that on that day when we meet the Creator, and gives us an account of the lives we led while living on this earth…that we have already repented for every violation of His Divine Laws of Love.
Though occupying the lowest places…or even considered as niave and gullible in the earthly sense, God protects His Children from all that may harm them. As my father has always said, “When God solves something, He solves it completely and thoroughly.” We all become “Jobs” on this earth….where we may have all taken away in the earthly sense, but God sees the faith that lies inside such a soul that gives up everything in the earthly sense, which as in the Book of Revelations has said, even to the point of losing their own earthly life. Isn’t this what Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshaua) demonstrated on the Cross, at Calvary? That as the Son of God, He came into this world without any of the worldly titles and circumstances that are considered to be of a higher status or that of royalty? He even died the death sentence of a criminal. God showed us through His Son, that nothing of this world abides to the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. It takes great strength to believe and live by a belief where it is not determined by what we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch with our human 5 senses. It is a quenching of the soul that has been called out by the Creator, and will only get quenched by the feeding of such a soul.
Those who are bound to the Eternal Kingdom, will be considered the lowest of the low. As it states in the Gospel of St. Thomas (the patron Saint of many Eastern Christianity sects), “you must become passers-by”. Our footprints on this earth are not based on the earthly legacy of our accomplishments and achievements, but by the footprints we leave on the souls we encounter, to bring them to the Eternal Kingdom. They will understand the things of the Eternal Kingdom do not conform to what is seen as valuable on this earth, because they have understood that God’s Laws of Divine Love, do not conform to the world’s ways.
A Disciple of Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) has understood and allowed for the Divine Laws of Love of the Eternal Kingdom to take root not only within their hearts and soul. This requires a daily repentance….and an unconditional love. He also instructs such a soul to not tolerate what violates God’s (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) Divine Laws of Love. When you live for earthly proof of your servitude for God’s Kingdom, this is when evil can grab a hold of you. With prayer and constant focusing of the soul onto God’s Divine Laws of Love of the Eternal Kingdom, you have chosen to live and wholeheartedly believe in the ways of the Eternal Kingdom.
As we get closer to the end of times, with each passing day, we will see many profess what love means…but few will know what it means of an unconditional kind. As Jesus Christ demonstrated on the Cross, it is selfless, devoid of pride. It has the Holy Spirit to guide such a soul rooted in it, to discern the deception of evil. God (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) has said, that those that know of Unconditional Love, will be bound to the Eternal Kingdom.And those bound onto the path to the Eternal Kingdom will be persecuted in a world that has lost the meaning and knowledge of what it means to unconditionally love. But Jesus Christ (Yesu Christu, Yeshuay) has said that remember while they persecute you….they persecuted me.
To unconditionally love is the perogative of the strong….to conditionally love is the perogative by the weak. This is what we have to remember as those who decide to walk the same path of Jesus Christ. In a world lost to the Laws of Divine Love which consist of ways that are of unconditional love, mercy, and nonviolence…..God’s Children may look like they are losing in the worldly sense…..but to a God (Jehovah, Devum, Yahweh) that says His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them….God’s Children will know that owning anything of this world, and having value for them means nothing in the Eyes of God the Father of Creation.
Unconditional love means we have to love all…our enemies…our friends….strangers….family…all equally. This means apathy for anyone is not acceptable. To care about their feelings….at the same time, not being vengeful….filled with lust or wrath is not acceptable. Evil challenges those that challenge it.And those that challenge evil are those that chose to follow the ways of the Eyernal Kingdom, which are ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. Being selfless in nature, and having the nudging of the Holy Spirit to nudge you, in guiding you what ways are that of the Eternal Kingdom, and those are not. To not give in to the flesh, and sinful human nature, but if done…immediately repentant. A heart rooted in God’s Unconditional Love will not be prideful to repent or to apologize for a wrong done.
We have to remember that God and His Ways will be known by a few as we get closer to the end of times. And even with this crowd, it will be practiced by very few. God gives these people the Divine Strength to uphold what is right and wrong in His Eyes, and to uphold the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. We can not do this by our own strength, but by God, the Father who created us…providing the strength to overcome, and uphold.
While we know that Jehovah, Devum, Yahweh, God….is an unconditionally loving God; we must also be aware the cost of our freedom, from evil’s shackles, was paid at the High Price, in the Blood Covering of Jesus Christ, His Son…which was provided by Him, in shedding His Blood for all of Mankind. God is all that is good, in this world. And for such purity, He will not tolerate any speck of impurity to stand in the very presence of His Throne. This is what He exemplified in asking Archangel Michael, to cast out Lucifer and his followers, from the gates of Heaven. If God, the Father demonstrated this very act, with one of His angels, then would He not do the very same to us? He loved us unconditionally enough to give up His Son, to become our blood covering from evil. But we, as Mankind, are still given FREEWILL, to CHOOSE, whether to reshackle ourselves to evil’s ways or to remain unshackled, and find the Truth in His Divine Laws of Love. The Blood Covering of Divinity, and the Grace of Jesus Christ covers sins, in the times of our lives that we were lost and in darkness. But one day, that door of grace will close, and God will see who has truly understood His Divine Laws of Love. Jesus Christ took on the punishment that was meant for Mankind’s sins, of falling to the temptations of the world’s ways, which are influenced by evil. However, if we continue to sin, or to not faithfully seeking the Truth of God’s Divine Laws of Love, that Blood Covering, and that Grace…will not protect anyone from God’s Wrath, on the soul.
“Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear.” -1 Peter 1:17
Through the FREEWILL given to us, by the Creator, He gives us the choice to become His Follower….His Child. Through the Blood shed on the Cross, at Calvary, Jesus Christ showed us that we are not slaves to God. But we make the choice of seeing the Truth in His Divine Laws of Love. Once we make that conscious choice….we will become more and more convicted in changing our ways, in accordance to what God, the Father of Creation, expects of us for the Eternal Kingdom. We will change, not only in body (as to how we conduct our outer selves in this world); but we will also change in accordance to mind (thoughts intentions), and will reflect onto the soul (to which God only sees). The very fact that Jesus Christ says that we should not only love those that love us back, but also those that persecute and hate us; as well as those we do not know…demonstrates that we are not only judged by what we say or do to what people can see or hear; but also in sincerity of our thoughts and actions. He judges not only what we do in the open, but also what we do in secret.
“This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.”
“A person is not a Jew who is one only outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. No, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a person’s praise is not from other people, but from God.”
We are to hold ourselves accountable, in all things in our lives, because that will reflect the purity of the soul within. This is not something that we can see of ourselves, or in others, with our human eyes. But only something that can be seen in the spiritual realm. To which God, can see in its entirety, to which the Holy Spirit will determine to see if there is fertile ground for Him to dwell, and florish; and to which Jesus Christ, as God’s Son, is given full authority to pass judgement on, in accordance to the faithfulness of such a soul, in upholding God’s Laws of Divine Love. As Mankind, we focus so much on the physical and legalism of the Scripture, to which were determined by manmade logic’s interpretation of the Scripture, instead of that which was guided by the Holy Spirit, to Divine Logic. The Holy Spirit, and His Guidance is what differentiates a Child of God, heavenbound, to those of Mankind that are not. The power of the Supreme God of all the Universe, resides in the Holy Spirit. The omnipresence of God, is the Holy Spirit. And this is reflected in the souls of Mankind. Whether the Holy Spirit sees worthy ground within the soul of Man, to dwell. Does this not reflect that purity of our actions AND intentions is what is being looked at? It is the Holy Spirit, that a lots the Gifts of God, that each person is worthy of having. What many people misunderstand, due to only focusing on the good deeds done to EARN things from God, is that SPIRITUAL TALENTS or SPIRITUAL TOOLS are gifts granted by the Holy Spirit of God, the Father of all Creation, and the Universe….Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh, God Almighty. Even Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, as He walked on this Earth, to do His Ministry, had the Holy Spirit within Him, from His Immaculate Conception, in Mary’s Womb; to preach the Words of God in His Ministry; to perform the miracles He did; and even His Death on the Cross at Calvary, for the sake of saving of Mankind.
It is through truly understanding the Divine Laws of Love, that we will be convicted in mind, body, and soul. We will be at conflict between our spirit and our flesh; and come to the full understanding that God’s Ways are not of this world, but beyond them. And how truly priceless the Grace of God is, through Jesus Christ’s death on the Cross. It is in faithfully seeking God, and His Ways, that we begin to see the truth of God’s Truth. And begin to see things in this world, the way we were meant to see them….as God had always seen them….as to how Jesus Christ, taught us to see them.
What does this quote mean to you? Well to me, it means quite a bit. When we believe in a God that says He is not of the world’s ways, but beyond them, this quote clearly demonstrates what God expects of us. In a world, where God’s Existence is slowly disappearing, we begin to reshackle ourselves to the things of this world; to which can be manipulated and controlled by evil. Jesus Christ, upon dying on the Cross, unshackled us from all of this, to give us the freedom of living in the Light of God’s Love, which is devoid of any fear to what the ways of this world can bring upon us, in our earthly life. Jesus Christ showed us through His Own Life, and even in His Death, what is expected to enter the Kingdom of Eternal Life; to break ourselves from the world’s ways to which are in direct violation to God’s Divine Laws of Love, and to stand boldly in them. Jesus showed us that those who choose to take on their Call from the Father of Creation; would need to endure trials and persecution. They will need to take up their daily Cross, to uphold God’s Laws of Divine Love. There simply is no other way, just as St. Rose had said in the quote above.
St. Thomas, in his Gospel, has also said, that Jesus said, “He who is near me is near the fire, and he who is far from me is far from the kingdom.” So as we get stronger in our faith, and get one step closer in finding God, the Father, the more angry evil gets. And throws more trials and challenges at you, to doubt God’s Goodness and Greatness, and to fall off the path to God, to only reshackle yourself to the world’s ways, which are not of God’s. So we must endure, boldly. In fact, the more we face in this life, we must grow stronger in our faith in God. It is the strength that God can provide, to which we can conquer evil; and to not fear it in any way. The path in finding God and His Way to His Kingdom is not an easy one. In fact if we use our own human strength, we will fall off of it many times. The most wonderful thing about Yahweh is that He knows this of us, and still waits for us to come back to the path. His grace is so abundant, that He gives us till the last breath in our earthly bodies, to do so.
Jesus Christ, showed us that God asks us, as His Creations, to continue on the Path to the Kingdom of Heaven, in a way of Peace, Love, and Nonviolence. We are to love all, and not only those that love us back. To forgive, but to never forget, so that sins will not be repeated. To humble ourselves to every wrong act that we do, because though we may think it can be hidden on this earth; it can not be hidden in the Eyes of God. So repent to God for all that He inspires within your heart, that is a violation to His Divine Laws of Love. Jesus Christ will judge on the intention of the hearts and souls; and not by actions alone. He has said this through out many of His Teachings. A heart rooted in God’s Laws of Divine Love, will always be called back to God, despite how far off they roam from His Path. But to continue on the path, St. Rose….St. Thomas….and even St. John (through his Book of Revelations) has stated that those that follow God’s Path to His Eternal Kingdom, will endure ridicule and persecution….some or even most, may continue on this path, to the point of death of their earthly bodies, to uphold God’s Divine Laws of Love. Did not Jesus Christ show this with His Own Death, of His Earthly Body? To uphold God’s Laws of Divine Love…to take on His Call of becoming the Salvation of Mankind….He died in the earthly sense. A death that surely was not that of nobility; but that of a criminal…of a crime he did not commit. God went to this extent to show through His Son, that the ways that are considered “great” in this world; are not so….in His Kingdom.
We must remember this. A road to God’s Kingdom is travelled by very few. If it was easy, then everyone would choose this path. God tells us through many of His Servants, that His Path does not conform to the world’s ways, but conforms to His Divine Laws of Love. And that it is only through Him, we will become victorious. NOT by our own strength, but God’s alone. So we must endure the trials joyfully, knowing that we are getting evil angry with each step we get closer to God’s Kingdom. “Fear no Evil…….”
