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.
God Can Only Be Known Through Brokenness: Thwarting Us To Knowing That His Ways Are Not Of The World’s but Beyond Them
We are born into this world. Based on the original sin that was committed in the Garden of Eden, by Adam and Eve, we are born with a sin stained human nature. God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) said that His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them. So how do we unshackle ourselves from the world’s ways? It is by going through a painful life experience (a moment where all human logic was not fruitful in getting one out of that painful experience), so that a man or a woman can, for a moment, break away from the ways of this world. It is within these moments, it decides whether one is destined for the Eternal Kingdom or not. How? Based on where the man or woman turns to, in these very moments, to cope with the painful, possibly life changing experience. By turning to Him, He gives us the strength to endure through the Refiner’s Fire…and conquering the tests of Evil. Evil’s plan by testing us, through earthly measures, is to discourage a man or woman who dedicated their soul to the Eternal Kingdom of God, away from Him and His Divine Laws of Love, which consist of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. Evil wants to convince you that you should have a stressfree life, without trials; and to give in to your sin stained Adam nature. Though it may appear, to a person that does not know the Divine Father of Creation, that such a person is unnecessarily suffering on the outside…on the inside, such a soul is becoming “born again”, being refined back to the purity that Mankind was originally created to be. Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) showed us through His Death on the Cross at Calvary, that He conquered death and Evil,through this one act, in fulfilling God, the Father of Creation’s Plan to once and for all rid all evil from His Creation. Through the proof of this one act, God showed His Unconditional Love for Mankind, and Evil will try to manipulate this one fact, to make Mankind to think otherwise. If we go on the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, we will encounter many earthly trials, but only to achieve eternity, in the process, through the gift of Faith, through which God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) grants to His Faithful Children. This is the promise that was made through the Death of Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) . For in 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 , it states:
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
It is through our spirits conquering our earthly troubles, that we use our victories as testimonies to God’s Eternal Power and Love, towards us as Mankind. It is through this life changing earthly troubles that our spirits change from our sin stained, human nature, which is displeasing in the Eyes of God. We become more convicted in the Power of God, the Father…and see the limitations to human and earthly logic, to which evil wants to shackle Mankind to…and restrict its exposure to the great power of God, the Father of Creation. But those who know of Jesus Christ’s Commission, in His Death on the Cross, will have their spirits shine so brightly in the darkness of this world, that even evil can not deny God’s work in the transformation of such a soul. And such a soul will remind evil of what it could never have again…access to God’s Eternal Throne Room. If Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) was not exempt from earthly troubles and trials, what makes us think that we can gain entrance into the Eternal Kingdom without so…and still reflecting the Unconditional Love that is a part of God’s Divine Laws of Love. God, the Father of Creation, (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) through the Life that Jesus Christ led on this earth, understands the trials that evil puts us through, and how much evil wants to throw us off the path to the Eternal Kingdom, and depend on what the sin stained human nature tells the earthly body to feel. But again, God has the confidence in His Truth prevailing, for those of whom have understood Jesus Christ’s Commission on the Cross, and have had revealed to them, a segment of His Wisdom about the Eternal Kingdom. We see again in 2 Corinthians 4:1-6:
Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
This clearly states that not only is God confident in His Truth prevailing, but those who chose to “take up their Cross” and following in the same path that Jesus Christ went before them, all those that decide to rely on God during their earthly troubles, and take them on, willingly, will have the same confidence in His Truth. The life changing painful event, will decide if someone breaks away from earthly logic that evil wants to shackle us to, or if they turn to Divine Logic during earthly trials and troubles (which does not require any sorcery or magic)…resulting, little by little, in breaking away from the world’s way, and experiencing God’s Strength and power in their life. Coming to such a philosophy for one’s life, is not for the weak hearted…or a soul that is weak to the Adam Nature, which is sin stained. It is for the strong, who experience the supernatural strength of God, the Father of Creation….in facing the hard times. It requires death to the earthly mind and heart that can shackle us to the world, on a daily basis; and if not surrendered to the Will of God, can hinder us from receiving God’s tiny portion to His Wisdom. In 2 Corinthians 4: 7-15:
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
Without a testimony to God’s Strength, into becoming our own personal strength in conquering an earthly trial, it will be hard to do a ministry to convert souls for God’s Eternal Kingdom, when that conviction of personally experiencing the power of God’s Love is not there. Souls can pick up on that rather immediately. There can be that lack of empathy by such people….and a word of God, that is being preached without fully understanding the depths of God’s Strength, will be sensed, even by the most sensitive of souls, whether on the path to the Eternal Kingdom or not. Though by not the same caliber in earthly suffering as Jesus Christ, we have understood our own portion of the Cross, with the life circumstances that God has given us. And the closer we get in our paths…the more trials we will face, because evil is working that much harder to take you away from the Path to the Eternal Kingdom. It is not done with just one event…it is a lifelong process.
People who ask for earthly evidence for an Unseen God, does not understand the meaning of Faith then. There is proof everywhere in our daily lives, of His Existence. It just may not be in the form that we (with our limited and restricted human logic and nature) expect it. God does not define Himself, or His Ways by the ways of His Creations. The Creator has never done that. It is not in grandiose earthly ways either, where He announces where He is applying His Power. He is God; He does not need to do that….but in the faithful everyday things…that shows His Loyalty to us…which demonstrates His Patience and Unconditional Love for us. It is up to us to choose with our freewill, to see it for ourselves. We can only see it if we chose to…and through the gift of faith, through which only God, Himself, can offer to an individual. Through the pain, perservere, and rely on the Strength to which was provided by the blood shed on the Cross, at Calvalry, by Jesus Christ. Perservere, despite what your human logic may say…Divine logic always trumps all.
Time for that will run out some day….
To obtain the things of this world, Mankind has chosen to give in to evil’s ways, and commit such great atrocities that only cause destruction of God’s Thumbprint on Mankind….our very souls. God gave us these to keep guard over, so that they can be reunited for Eternity in Paradise. Yet, how many have forfeited this birthright, as a Child of God? For the sake of pursuing the TEMPORARY things of this world? Because of the tunnel-vision that Mankind has obtained, we focus the success of our lives, even our spirituality on the parameters of this world. Yet, those who did or do faithfully pursue their path back to the Eternal Paradise with the Creator, know that their success will only be determined when their earthly life is over, and their soul stands for judgement before the throne. For the souls that the Creator, created into existence…every one will stand before the throne for judgment, for its purity to be determined. Did the soul focus on OBTAINING or BEING. Did it focus on POSSESSING EARTHLY WEALTH….or did it focus on EXISTING with GOD? Did it choose to focus on ways of violence, conditional love, and unforgiveness? Or did it focus on ways of NONviolence; UNconditional Love; and Mercy? As Bob Marley’s song says, “There is no hiding from the Father of Creation…”
Anything from God, The Creator, is not determined by PHYSICAL PARAMETERS. He clearly says, His Ways are not of the world’s but beyond them. It is not by magic, deception or manipulation. It stands by truth, and what is felt by a soul connected to Him. These are ALL THINGS that Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) demonstrated with His Life, Death, and Resurrection. And will demonstrate when He one day returns. Whenever that may be. All the injustice caused by Man’s Choice to choose evil’s rebellion against God’s Divine Laws of Love, will one day bow down to Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu). And all that caused them will be held on accountable for them, by the Father of Creation…God…Devum…Jehovah…Yahweh. Can religious people end up in Hell? Yes, because the focus on OBTAINING or POSSESSING Salvation; not by purely growing stronger in faith and relationship with God, The Father of Creation (Devum…Jehovah…Yahweh); with Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu…Yeshuay); and with the Holy Spirit. Can a criminal avoid hell, and end up in Paradise? Well, look at the one criminal that hung alongside Jesus Christ, while being crucified on the Cross, at Calvary. By wholeheartedly repenting to Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay), and believing that He can save Him, Jesus told Him, that He will join Him in the Eternal Paradise. This demonstrates that God’s love is endless, and unconditional, that He not only gives us till our last earthly breath, to become born again in mind, body, and soul; but He loved us without any boundaries, as to make His Son, the sacrificial lamb, to save Mankind from eternal damnation; so that we can have the chance to make that choice to wholeheartedly surrender. It is the intentions that cry out from the soul of the human heart that is read by Divinity.
STOP trying to OBTAIN Salvation. And stop taking the legalistic route in seeking Salvation. At the same time, God, does not want His Son’s Blood, that was shed with such great pain, on the Cross, at Calvary to be underestimated, or mistreated. We must wholeheartedly seek for the Divine Truth; and faithfully ask for the Holy Spirit’s Guidance. We should not take anything for granted, in our lives, when it comes to the abundant mercy God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) shows us daily. May God have mercy on all of us.
“If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the soundwords of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness,he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain.But godliness with contentment is great gain,for we brought nothing into the world, andwe cannot take anything out of the world.But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.”
-1 Timothy 6:2-10 (ESV)
Many have corrected it to emphasize “The LOVE of money”. Here is the truth behind this. With this wording, we tend to restrict the meaning of this verse to GREED. But it does not stop there. It is the LOVE of the SELF, to obtain earthly riches. There are many life circumstances that have led to evil things, and for sins to be committed. I sincerely believe if money or any earthly riches, are the focus of an act or a goal of a plan, that is a coveting or love of money, or earthly riches.
We have to remember a few things that God has said:
1. God says His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but beyond them.
2. He provides SUFFICIENTLY for our needs. If He provides for the birds in the sky; and for the lilies in the valley, would He not provide for us, as Man?
3. In all we do, we must keep God’s Commandments in mind, as to how we conduct ourselves.
4. As Jesus Christ demonstrated through His Own Life, Teachings, Death, and Resurrection, that we must uphold God’s Laws of Divine Love, at all costs.
In society today, we see a great divide in wealth. AGREED. So let us study this for a moment.
There are people who have gained their wealth through unjust means. Mahatma Gandhi said it best in the following:
When a way of life is focused on the self, where is there an honest love for humanity? God calls us to treat others, the way we want to be treated. To love each other, unconditionally; just as Jesus Christ demonstrated on the Cross, at Calvary. Yet, we see this divide. Why? Would a one time charitable donation, help a child to be provided with the same opportunities that a privileged child will have? Would it help to put food on their table, past one meal? To buy more than one pair of clothes, for their backs? Will it help to heal a broken spirit or heart? No…no…no. For there is only a certain amount of “money” that is needed to live. Yet we have people who strive for extreme wealth, for what reason? To put food on their table? Our stomachs can only take so much food. To put clothes on their backs? We only have 2 hands, to legs, one head, one body to clothe. For a roof over our heads? We only need one to protect us from getting wet in the rain; to keep us warm in the cold; to protect us from the heat. But yet, we see that those who belong here, decide to shield themselves from the poverty in the world. To do their work from a distance, with money; and with no investment of the heart. Power is not in money. God says, His Ways are not of the world; but beyond them. Jesus Christ, as His Son, was the ultimate symbol of unconditional love, through His Salvation of Mankind, through His Selfless Act of dying on the Cross, at Calvary. Though being the Son of God, having the power in one swipe of His Hand to take away all; having every right to pass judgement…did not do so. Instead He chose to walk in our shoes, out of God’s Love and Understanding for us; and to give up His Life to help us conquer what is trying to destroy us. He took on our battle, and won it for us. MONEY is not love. Money is EARTHLY POWER. Jesus Christ did not chose to do His Work, with Earthly Power; but His Life, Death, and Resurrection, showed us Divine Power. Our love for God, should be the dictator in our lives. And God calls for us to live with the earthly circumstances He has given us, to help each other, to understand His Unconditional Love for all. God sees us all equally in His Eyes. Giving us every opportunity to open our eyes to this fact; until when He finally calls for Judgement to be passed, by the One, who earned that Right in His Eyes, for upholding His Will at all earthly costs…Jesus Christ.
Then we have the other extreme. Where there is a lot of poverty in the world. And the poverished see those who have the extreme wealth; and seeing their pleasures, and lack of struggle. They see their temporary moments of happiness, and their false sense of security. And they strive for this false sense of security; at any cost. Thinking that once they achieve it, then they will be able to be at peace. Many who have reached that, have found quite the contrary. Only God, can give us that peace of mind. Only Divinity can give you security. Though they did not “love money”; their main focus and primary goal for their actions was for obtaining money.
Through poverty, and wanting to get out of that poverty, many do things out of desperation. However, with our freewill we have the choice to choose, whether to honor God the Father of Creation, and trust in Him, in providing the way out. And there are some who do. However, there are also those who obtain it by breaking His Commandments. How many people have killed for their wealth? How many people have stolen to obtain wealth? How many people have sold their bodies for wealth? How many people have cheated another, for their wealth? How many have taken advantage of someone’s desperation, to obtain their wealth? Or how many people have taken advantage of someone else’s honesty for obtaining their personal wealth? How many remain in relationships, and commit adultery (out of their unhappiness or lack of satisfaction in their partner) for the sake of financial security and stability?
When we take on such attitudes, are these selfless acts? Is there not harm committed to another member of our fellow man? Who are we to decide who deserves such unjust actions to be done towards them or not, to obtain such wealth? Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, while He roamed this Earth, did not do that Himself. So with our sin stained, vulnerable human nature, who are we to determine this? Based on this vulnerability look at what Mankind has chosen with their freewill to exist? It is not God, that is allowing for it to happen. He is giving us the choice for it to exist, or to not exist. He has provided not only the foundation, but also showed us through the earthly example of His Son, Jesus Christ, what is to be expected. Yet we still continue to choose with our freewill otherwise. So when will it stop? God had to reset Mankind so many times. He has shown, those who chose His Ways are the ones, who can stop it permanently. That is the only way. Our sin vulnerable human nature, does not allow for us to do it by our own strength, without Him. This is what World History has consistently demonstrated. Man is not capable on its own to do that; but only with the aid of God, the Father of Creation. Otherwise would we CHOOSE to take such routes in gaining wealth? Would we choose to have goals of obtaining wealth, instead of doing what is right in this world? The Love of Money. Evil created such extremes so that our EMOTIONS, our FIRST INSTINCTS will dominate. To not think, and use our freewill, to choose the ways of God, the Father of Creation. Freewill is what differentiates us from the animals in the wild. Yet, evil is trying to make us to take on the ways of the animals in the wild. God made animals to exist in that way, not Man. To gain, based on “survival of the fittest”. Man was given freewill, to choose a way of life of love and righteousness. We are not to become secure by the expense of our fellow Man. We are not to enjoy, at the expense of another. We are to love, selflessly, just as Jesus Christ showed us at the Cross.
Actions can be forgiven in the Eyes of God. But often wealth gained by unjust means, have to often be maintained through unjust means. And leaves a heart and soul heavy laden with burden, placed by Evil. Unless one decides to unshackle themselves from this unjustly gained wealth, it will be forever shackled to evil. If we have truly understood that God’s Ways of Divinity are not of the world’s but beyond them, then we would take Jesus Christ’s Example, and continue to conduct ourselves in accordance to God’s Commandments. We will begin to understand that the things of this world are temporary. And that things that God gives, to His Faithful, are permanent. True freedom is not in “living for the moment”, in earthly circumstances. But by knowing that the God you honor with your life, has ways that are beyond that of the world. Mother Teresa says it best here:
