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.
Those of us who have decided to walk the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, will know what I mean by the title of this entry. When God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Devum, Yahweh) has stated that His Ways are not of the world’s way but are beyond them, He truly meant that. This is what He showed us through the Life Example and Death of His Son, Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu, Yeshua). God, the Father of Creation, has called all of His Chosen Children, that are bound toward the path toward the Eternal Kingdom, to follow His Divine Laws of Love, ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy, at all costs, even to the point of an earthly death. Those that are bound to this path, know that our time on this earth is limited, in comparison to the eternity given to the souls that are deep within us, as humanity.That is what sets us apart from any of God, the Father’s creations….it is the soul that He has given us, to keep guard over. We know that there is more to life, than what we can see with our human eyes, hear with our human ears, smelling, tasting, and touching with our human nose, tongue, and our skin.
A heart that has been given the spark by God, and have truly seen and understood what Jesus Christ did on the Cross, on that day on Calvary, that spark will never die. That spark was put within such a heart because God, the Father, has seen fertile ground and a pure heart that He found worthy for the Holy Spirit to dwell within its soul. No matter how far Satan and his demons will try to throw such a heart and soul off the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, that spark will never die. Satan and his demons hate a heart and soul that hungers for God and His Divine Laws of Love. If you look at any saint, they all have had a life that was in the earthly sense considered that full of trial, devoid of earthly riches, and a soul that sticks out in the crowd. Such souls that are seek the Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation, will see that the ways of Jesus Christ, His Son, are ways that are not of this world, but are in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love, ways of the Eternal Kingdom. A Kingdom to which God has banned Satan and his demons, which is what makes such souls a target of his envy, for what he can never have again…..God’s Unconditional Love, Peace, and Joy, and to sit in the very throne room of the Most High. So if he can never have it again, none of humanity (God’s most prized creations) will ever see it or know of it.
However, that is the difference between those that are given the testimony within their hearts and souls. This testimony is what gives the human side of the heart and soul, the conviction to continue on with the supernatural path of the Eternal Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation. Despite the earthly circumstances that may surround such souls, God, continues to lead such souls that He set on Fire with the testimony that He had custom made for them, towards the Eternal Kingdom. However, just as He did for Job, and all of His Previous Saints that walked before us, God, never allows for evil to give us more than what we can handle. God, knows and trusts His Children such trials in order to refine their souls in the fires of the furnace, to the perfect diamonds that He created for them to be; to cut them off from the ways of this world, a world to which He states that His Ways are not a part of.
So through the trials, keep up the good fight. God sees it all, and will count every tear that is shed. He will count every drop of blood of His Innocent. He will count every sorrow, and see who caused them to you, on behalf of Satan and his demons, and will account for them on your behalf one day. Have faith that God, the Father loves you, just as Jesus Christ, His Son, showed us on that day on Calvary, on the Cross.
One of the biggest flaws in mankind, which is a part of the sinful human nature that we were born with, is that we are so quick to hide the wrongs we commit to others, and so slow to go and make things right, for how we have wronged another one of the members of mankind. Yes, it is true, we are to forgive those who have wronged us.But if they are not willing to change from the ways that they have wronged us with, we love and pray for their change from afar….so that they change from their evil inspired ways. They are required to change from those ways, if they call themselves Children of God. Evil will say that you do not need to change, you should be loved as you are, to accept the good and bad within…..they should “forgive and forget”. God knows the original greatness that He created Mankind to be before evil introduced sin, in the Garden of Eden. So we are required by Him, to change from the dark ways that make us sin. God has said, that His Ways do not conform to the world’s ways (His Creation’s Ways) but are beyond them. If we have come to understand God’s Divine Laws of Love, we would not be so slow to try to make the wrong things right, and we will be quick to repent to God, for the wrongs we have committed. But let us further explore this thought….
Is there an expiration date on the wrongs we commit to others, and have not addressed them to the wronged brother or sister…or even addressed it with God, the Father of Creation? I think Bob Marley, the famous reggae artist said it best when he said, “There is no hiding from the Father of Creation”. He keeps account of all the injustices, lies, and wrongs committed against His Children. It does not matter if it was committed 20 years ago…or 2 years ago, or even last night. God does not guarantee us tomorrow. But if we do wake up to another day, we should thank God for giving us another day…another chance….to make things right in His Eyes. But how many people realize this? And for those that have been wronged, and faithfully sought after God’s Divine Laws of Love….God will make sure that all injustice will bow down to Him….and He will protect the faithful. Isaiah 54:17 states: “No weapon formed against thee shall prosper. For this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord.” THERE IS NO EXPIRATION DATE TO A WRONG COMMITTED, THAT HAS NOT BEEN CORRECTED.
This repentance comes from a heart that has been truly transformed by faith, in God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Devum, Yahweh). People who believe in Karma do it out of the Self Love of fearing a bad thing or occurrence coming to them, in the earthly sense. Whether it be losing finances, a job, multiple homes and cars, even an earthly death. Karma, is putting an earthly parameter on a spiritual thing. This automatically goes against what God has said, that “His Ways are beyond the world’s ways”. Karma is when one looks out for themselves, to make sure that they are provided for in the earthly sense…..more than living to what mankind was called to do, to follow the Divine Laws of Love. This “fear” is not the fear of making a Perfect God, who is Our Father, disappointed…this is an ungodly fear, coming from an evil force.
God states that this repentance should be a continual process in one’s life, till the last breath in our earthly bodies. As it is stated in the Lord’s Prayer in the Holy Bible, God’s Name should be so”hallowed” within our lives and hearts, that His Divine Laws of Love are the driving forces in the lives of those who have truly become born again, in mind, body and soul….these are the people that will be promised entrance into the Eternal Kingdom of God. God asks us to go through the fires of earthly trials and tribulations…in order to rid ourselves of the selfishness and deception of human nature. He asks us to work towards purity…because His Kingdom can only have those with that intent….and these are the only people that will gain God’s Favor. This is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life and Death on the Cross. Once we have decided to follow the same path to the Eternal Kingdom, just as Jesus Christ has showed us, we are to follow it at all earthly costs.
When we are so preoccupied with what we gain in the earthly sense, then we will only follow what evil wants mankind to do…and that is to fear not having the earthly things, and putting value in them, ahead what is considered to have Divine value in the Eternal Kingdom…to which God (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) has said that His Divine Laws of Love and ways are not in a part of, but are beyond them. He has said that in the end, very few will know of the ways of the Eternal Kingdom….and for that reason, His Children…or those that are bound to the Eternal Kingdom, will be considered LAST (or of least value on this earth). Just remember what Jesus Christ has said, “Those that are last on this earth, will be first into the Kingdom of God; and those that are first on this earth, will be last in the Kingdom.”
God searches the minds, hearts, and souls…and harvests them accordingly….and He sees who has truly put His Divine Laws of Love first and foremost in their souls.
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.
We are so quick to point out the flaws in others, yet do we see the flaws in ourselves? Often pride gets in the way of allowing us to see our own flaws. We are required to examine our conscience, in order to free ourselves from the shackles of evil. There is no compromise to this because evil will try to make its way, in any way it can, not only into your conscience, but also to take root in your soul, and grow like a weed, suffocating any light to which God, the Father of Creation, has seeded within. There is a constant refining of the soul that needs to be done, and it must become a daily routine for us to “clean out our closets”, so to speak. This is when the Holy Spirit can establish His Roots within us, and flourish through you, within this dark world, for the Eternal Kingdom.
I have learned that even the past events that we THINK we have gotten over or resolved in our lives, could have possibly made deep wounds within ourselves, that can give a foothold to Satan and his demons to slowly rot away at your soul, without recognizing it, and laying it at the feet of Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay), who fights on our behalf, against against such things, is the only way we can COMPLETELY HEAL the deep wounds. We must remember that God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) is pure love. What Jesus Christ did on the Cross at Calvary, as God in the flesh, was showing and becoming the purest form of unconditional love. So there is no room for any impurity within ourselves, when it comes to entering the Eternal Kingdom of Heaven. Because we are born with a sin stained human nature, which was conceived within Mankind at the time Adam and Eve decided to rebel against God’s command to them, by eating of the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, it is REQUIRED that we continuously examine our conscience for what we do in our lives. Our thoughts….our actions….our words. We are to humble ourselves to a God, who sees all, as an Omnipresent Being, and recognize what we do in violation of His Divine Laws of Love. We are all guilty of something. While we see 10 of our own flaws, God sees 100 x 100 more. Jesus Christ, saw something worthy in Mankind, that was worth dying for, on the Cross at Calvary. Through the perfection that He was while He roamed on this earth, by dying on the Cross, He covered us through the Blood He shed on that day, from evil.
We must remember that we, as Mankind, because of our sin stained human nature, are not worthy in being in the Presence of a Perfect God. Out of His Unconditional Love, He gives us the chance, everyday, to CHOOSE OUT OF OUR FREEWILL, to see Him in all. Otherwise, as being God, He could easily destroy all that directly violate His Divine Laws of Love, which are ways of Unconditional Love, Mercy, and Forgiveness. But all of this requires a humbling of ourselves…of ridding ourselves of any pride within…and to recognize when we ourselves are in direct violation of unconditional love. Examination of the conscience is not a one time deal….it is a lifelong process. It requires a changing of ourselves, to the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation, knew He created for us to be. We may realize this when we are young….or we may realize this, within our last breaths. Nonetheless, God judges based on a complete transformation of a heart and soul, to which He can only see as the Perfect Omnipresent Being that He is. It is nothing of the self….but being selfless in nature.
Jesus Christ requires for us to love all, unconditionally. He requires us to not fellowship with evil at the same time. This not only includes physically not associated with evil; but also dissociate from the very things that evil has creeped in within ourselves, through past pains, hurt, and anger. He requires us to take a way that is beyond the ways of this world (to which God clearly says that His Divine Ways do not conform to the ways of a world that asks us to give in to our sin stained human nature; but are Divine in Nature, and conform to the ways of the Heavenly realm). We are asked to cover those very areas in our lives by the precious blood of Jesus Christ, so that evil will not take a foothold within ourselves of such things, to give birth to deep wounds to anchor itself to. We should change at the same time by humbly offering those things at the feet of God, to provide His Strength to overcome them with unconditional love; instead of giving in to our sin stained human nature to give rise to personal anger, pain, and vengeance. We must realize the Power of God’s Unconditional Love. We take for granted of being in His Presence at this moment…we take for granted that we are not guaranteed to wake up the next day, it is only God’s decision for us to be able to do so. While we are so busy on focusing on the preservation our outer physical bodies; we are allowing for our souls and inner bodies to rot away, to which is the ONLY thing allowed to pass on to Eternity, whether it be destined to be damned or to be blessed to the heavenly realm. We are too busy nourishing the outer body…instead of “feeding the soul” within.
Examination of our conscience is a requirement so that we understand of the Existence of a Perfect God…and our imperfections. He gives us the choice, hoping that we will chose to live in ways of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, which is selfless in nature. This is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life, and Death on the Cross. Though having all of the power to strike down anyone that harmed Him or ridiculed or mocked Him….He did not. So we must practice “turning the other cheek” at all costs….because this is what God meant that “Love conquers all”….He sees all injustice done towards those who have taken these words and Jesus Christ’s Teachings to heart…and will get justice for them all, in the eternal realm, in a permanent way, for He is the only One who is allowed to take vengeance for His Children…and as the Creator, to destroy what is in direct violation of His Divine Laws of Love. Our human mind can not comprehend seeing the world beyond what we view with our 5 senses, but it does not mean that it does not exist. It only means that we rely on God, the Father of Creation, to show us through the Holy Spirit, as to seeing what is beyond the things of this world. The Holy Spirit guides those who examine their conscience everyday, to ways of life that are pleasing to God, the Father of Creation, and will lead them in ways the uniformly love, unconditionally…to uniformly forgive, unconditionally….and to uniformly give mercy…unconditionally. For the present form of the world today, is not because of God. It is our choice for allowing Evil to seep in that much within our conscience…within ourselves…to give in to our sin stained human nature in the form of the mortal sins of 1) Greed; 2) Gluttony; 3) Sloth; 4) Envy; 5) Wrath; 6) Pride; and 7) Lust. The more we understand this….the better off we will be in our Spiritual Enlightenment. Leading to the present condition of the world today…
Love in its purest form is UNCONDITIONAL. Think about examples of the purest forms of love:
1. Between a parent of child, to the point that it can be sacrificial.
2. Between a pet and their master.
3. Between siblings.
4. Even between lifelong friends.
5. Animals within clans protect each other to the point of death.
Today, we here the words of “I love you”….being thrown around to even acquaintances. It is beginning to lose its meaning. Instead of being powerful words expressing the most powerful emotion…that even Jesus Christ demonstrated to the point of dying on the Cross at Calvary, to save Mankind from being lost to darkness, forever. We see people loving based on a condition….based on terms that someone within a relationship dictates…one sided. Many explain it away as “loving differently”. Love is a universal language…a universal feeling. It is almost saying that you should “love in your own way”. Not true….everyone understands unconditional love, especially in the sacrificial sense. Such an emotion shows nothing of the self, because of the Source that it comes from, in its purest form….God, the Father of Creation. Jesus Christ, His Son, was the Ultimate Symbol of Love, when He died on the Cross…the way He led His Life, serving Mankind.
We must be mindful when we use the words of “I love you”. Because we only soil the name of the Almighty God, the source of all of it. And He does not take that too lightly. God, the Father of Creation, sees the heart inside…the soul inside. He keeps one’s actions in line to represent His Unconditional Love….there is nothing of the human self…which is soiled and sin stained. This is how evil tried to soil Mankind. Evil wants to diminish the meaning of love. So that no one will ever remember what it means to experience…to know of the Unconditional Love that come from the purest source…God, the Father of Creation. If we call ourselves, God’s Children, we must keep our hearts, minds, thoughts, actions, and souls in check…to be in line to which God, the Father of Creation shows us everyday in His Unconditional Love…through which He demonstrated through the Death of Jesus Christ, His Son, on the Cross at Calvary. As human beings we are flawed…that is why love in its purest form, can only come from strength that is supplied by the purest source…God, the Father of Creation. We can not do it by our own strength. But by the strength and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because such love is guided by a pure source…it will be consistent from the what a soul emanates…from a person’s actions…to the love they express in words. Such a pure love is undeniable, even to the most lost souls in darkness. This is how God beams His Light into the World….and shows that He is God, through such souls that allow for His Unconditional Love to shine through them…as that which was seen in Jesus Christ, His Son.
When Adam and Eve gave in to the temptation offered by the Serpent in the Garden of Eden, this is when our Human Nature became flawed. It is by seeping temptation into the Human Nature, that made it flawed. That cut off the direct pathway between God and Mankind. Jesus Christ came back to reestablish that Divine Gateway between the Divine Father of Creation, and His most prized creations, Mankind. The serpent and his helpers want to convince Mankind otherwise, which is what happened in the Garden of Eden. The serpent wants to make Mankind believe that they are not special in the Eyes of God, when in fact he knows the best (having once been a member of his court as Lucifer) how much God values Mankind, and what He has promised them, for following His Divine Laws of Unconditional Love, Mercy, and Nonviolence.
The violence and the unforgiveness that we see in the world is a result of Man giving in to our flawed human nature. Jesus Christ came to this earth, and showed us through His Own Earthly Life, as the Son of God, what is expected by the Father of Creation of our earthly lives, in order to reunite with Him, and to be promised Eternal Life in the Eternal Kingdom. He showed us that He understands all that we endure as to the temptations and hardships that evil brings upon us, in order to permanently cut ourselves away from our connection from the Divine Father of Creation. He suffered the same hardships, if not more severe than what we endure, on a daily basis. Yet, He understood that through our Human Nature, that we would not be able to fight such things with our own human strength, but through the strength provided by the Holy Spirit, and the Father of Creation, He showed us that the things of this earth do not define the Eternal Kingdom, but defines evil and its rebellious ways that violate the Divine Laws of Unconditional Love, Mercy, and Nonviolence.
The carnal sins of lust, greed, sloth, envy, wrath, gluttony, pride is clearly what we see that our human nature can strongly be influenced by. We use our flawed human nature, to bring about the human logic, to reason out divine logic to which the Divine Father of Creation clearly states that that His Ways are not apart. A human nature and human logic which is defined and limited by earthly boundaries.
Jesus Christ showed us through His Divine Death, the power of Unconditional Love, on the Cross at Calvary. He showed us that Divinity is not bound by Mankind logic and nature to which the serpent tries to manipulate through the 7 Carnal Sins. He showed us that in unity through the ways of the Eternal Kingdom, that Mankind is promised more. That Mankind is treasured in the Eyes of the Divine Father of Creation. That Divinity wins! Great things happen through the roads less travelled. And whomever is willing to take it, great things are promised. Jesus Christ, as His Son, has shown us this. His disciples have shown us this.
