On this Earth we roam around;
For a truth that will make us Heaven bound.
As we continuously recognize our flaws and strengths;
We must perfect both of them, correct them by willing to go all lengths.
For in the words of our Blesses Savior, Jesus Christ…
“Truth is not what one see or hears…but what is felt.”
By being a part of God‘s created world;
We are to continuously seek His Wisdom…His Truth…and with evil‘s ways, from our lives, should be hurled.
Once one gets a taste of this Truth, the hunger to taste it again goes on and on…
Evil from it, will try to manipulate, deceive, and con…
Despite evil’s temporary success of creating deviations…one will discover that the hunger for the certainty of God’s Truth, is NEVER gone…
And as one learns more and more, he/she will become less of the Enemy’s pon.
This will anger Satan, and he will throw anything to deter one from Truth’s Path;
For temporary indulgences and scorges…versus the price for eternity in Paradise…you do the math.
He will try to convince you that God will never forgive you of your debts or sins…
But the truth states that with wholehearted faith, God will forgive you, unconditionally…not like how evil will remind you of them…like pins.
Evil will continuously tempt you away from seeking and sharing the Truth you found;
By lying, instilling fear, and even overly flattering you…trying to lure you away from Hallowed Ground.
For evil today will try to disguise itself with the shell of being empathetic and pure…
That is why Christ states that Truth is FELT, not to be deceived by earthly sayings and actions that hear and look good.
There is a certainty that comes along with Truth, that is felt;
Because it is felt from the innermost depths of your being, it can not be denied…within your heart…it takes deep root and melts.
The hardest thing is giving to the Will of Truth, because it defies all logic of Man;
However, it is so powerful that it would rid all evil from existence, hence Satan’s plot of it to ban.
As each day goes by, we are getting one day closer to the end of times. And as each day goes by, we can see that. There is physical proof of this all around us. Whether we are aware of it or not…whether we want to be or not….we are ALL a part of a SPIRITUAL WARFARE. So it is important that we grow stronger in our faith. When we do, this will prove to be a consistent stronghold for us, and our hearts and souls. And no one or nothing will be able to shake us from this. Because God says He is beyond what we see and hear with our human eyes and ears on this earth. And when we have the FATHER OF CREATION as our focus, we will definitely be on the winning side of this spiritual war.
As God’s Creations, we are all on the Path of Truth. And there is only one truth. God knows that we all understand it in different ways. However, when enlightened by that ONE TRUTH, by the One True God, all will conduct themselves in accordance to the way that Truth dictates. God wants true believers to come into His Paradise of Eternal Life, up above. So, He will not tolerate any deviations from His Truth. A heart and soul grounded in His Truth will be childlike in nature. It will not value the things of this world; but only the things in God’s Love. If you look even the flowers in the wild, the trees in the wilderness, and the animals in the forests, display this. Look at the animals…do they not protect their herd or young…in a sacrificial way? That is out of unconditional love…and knowing their responsibility as leaders and parents to the young of the flock or herd. JUST AS A SHEPARD PROTECTS ITS FLOCK….
JESUS CHRIST, as the SON OF GOD, did the same. Though being the “King of all Kings”; and a member of the most High Court…He never took the place or position within this earth of any royalty…or of fame or wealth. He took on God’s Will for Him, to be the Shepard of the Lost Sheep. And when God’s Time was right, seeing how far Mankind strayed away from God’s Greatness for them….He became the SACRIFICIAL LAMB…..the offering to God, to take away the sins of Mankind. As the Son of God, He died on this earth…in order to take our place. To unshackle us from evil. Instead of DESTROYING His Creations, God gave us one final chance in making things right with Him. Jesus Christ, conquered evil, by dying on the Cross….as the ULTIMATE SYMBOL of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. And will one day soon return, to take back with Him those who have found and lived by God’s Truth.
Evil wants us to forget this of Jesus Christ. That is why Satan fears the Name of Jesus Christ. Because Jesus defeated him and his evil. Do you not see how Jesus Christ and His Name…any memory of Him is trying to be eliminated on this earth? Christians are being persecuted everywhere, based on their belief in Jesus Christ. So it is so important that we study His Life…know how to conquer evil. Jesus Christ came to earth, to change the law of “eye for an eye”; and asked us to “turn the other cheek” in order to uphold God’s Divine Laws of Love….as you can see…as Jesus died on the Cross….He did it to the point of death of His Earthly Life, on the Cross. He went as far to show that God’s Ways are beyond the world’s ways…as to die for Mankind on this Earth.
So declare Jesus Christ’s Name over your life…over the lives of your loved ones…EVERYDAY…to daily conquer evil’s battles over your soul. And you will see how evil will leave you….in fear of Jesus Christ.
We often mock what we do not understand, as human beings. We also feel power over mocking someone that seems defenseless and voiceless. God has said, only evil takes advantages of someone’s weaknesses; while He enhances someone’s strengths. Just read this sentence again. Evil takes advantage of one’s WEAKNESS. While God, endhances someone’s STRENGTH. SO who seems to be the deficient one in this case?
Strength from a Divine Source lies in not giving in to human nature that has been tainted by evil, upon introducing sin at the Garden of Eden. True strength lies in conquering that human nature. I never exactly understood how people got great joy in putting down others. Have we fallen that far from the greatness that God had created for us to be? Or is it because we fear feeling the pain of love…of heartache? I think it is both. However, Jesus Christ truly showed, the great strength of God, by enduring His Passion (in His Torture) and in Death; the TRUE STRENGTH of God, for the sake of His Love for ALL of Mankind. There is no human on this Earth, or that ever walked on this earth, that can endure What Jesus Christ did. This is what made Him the Son of God. Not Man…but of God. As Man, we get hurt from insults, from cuts, and bruises. As Man, we even avoid relationships, in this day and age, for the sake of avoiding heartache. But look at what Jesus endured…is there anything in comparison, to what we endure?
This is why Jesus tells us…showed us, that “no matter what I endured, I forgave as I endured it. I prayed for every soul that I encountered to have a change of heart.” I’ve heard many people say that, “I’ve been this way for so long. I can’t change. I won’t.” But God says that we must change from our sinful ways. No matter how small they may seem, in God’s Eyes, they will be accounted for. Jesus is very clear about this, in His Teachings. As long as we remain focused on the Father of Creation’s words…and have a daily relationship with Him….He will guide us through evil’s deception. As the end of times grow nearer….it will become more difficult to distinguish the difference between the evil’s deception, and God’s Truth. This is what will separate God’s People from those lost to this world, running rampantly with evil.
What many people do not realize is that through Jesus’ death on the Cross, He ended Satan’s Rule on this Earth, and reestablished the direct pathway between Man and God; that was originally destroyed upon Satan’s introduction of sin at the Garden of Eden. And since then Satan and His Followers have been running rampantantly through out this earth, trying to take away as many souls as he can from God, and prevent them from entering the Paradise to which God had promised to Mankind, and at one time to Satan (then Lucifer…his high ranking angel). Once Lucifer got kicked out of the Paradise due to his own vanity, he wanted no one to feel the eternal happniess in Paradise, that he can never have again.
Jesus Christ showed us…told us…gave us the tools to conquer evil, with God on our side. People often overlook this part of studying of Jesus’ life. It can conquer all of the schemes of evil. What people do not realize is that fearing evil is not necessary. If we have found the true meaning of the words of God, we will realize that all of the riches of this world, including the value of our human bodies, is nothing in comparison to the soul that we have within us. The souls is what Satan is trying to claim….he knows that you will flinch at the thought of pain. But when we have a relationship with our Heavenly Father, we will see that such pain is worth enduring, in order for an eternity’s worth of happiness with our Father in Heaven.
We must remember that we must build on the strengths that God has given us. This can only be done through having a daily relationshp with God. Yes, it may seem we are at war in all the corners of the earth; but everyday, we are in a battle for our lives, whether we know it or not. A SPIRITUAL BATTLE. The most valuable of things can not have a finite pricetag on them. Think about it. Is there anything on this earth, that does not have a pricetag on it? From cars, to homes, to food, to even body organs, and slaves (these days). But what price was paid for our souls…the priceless blood shed at the Cross by Jesus Christ. He gave up His Life, for all of Mankind. There is absolutely no pricetag on that. You can not buy a ticket into Heaven. Sorry, NO CASH, CREDIT, OR MONEY ORDERS ACCEPTED. Only a heart that has changed to become born again to a heart rooted in Love; in accordance to God’s Ways. Yes…that means we have to change. We have to constantly change, in order to refine ourselves, to the perfection that is fit, in order to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. God wants perfect hearts, and perfect souls….Now do not misunderstand, it does not mean we have to have led perfect lives, but it means that when our lives are done, on this earth, we have to have changed in heart and soul, completely surrendered to the Father Up Above. This is what Jesus Christ demonstrated through His Life and Death, and even in Resurrection into Heaven. He lived as Man; died as Man; but by resurrecting, He made it known that He was not Man…but the Son of God.
So next time, you feel afraid to change…or to love….don’t. Because Jesus has shown us the victory in store for all those who do. Do not take advantage of the defenseless or the voiceless…because taking advantage of someone of their vulnerabilities, ignorances, and weakness, is a trait of evil. When someone does that to you…as a child of God, remember He has given you this insight. So, feel sorry for the offender, that this is all that they know in life. And pray to the Father, that you hope that He can show them more than what there is on this earth.
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Jesus came to this earth to give us the tools to fight against evil. He provided us with the tools that we need to defeat and conquer evil. What we have to keep in mind is that there are 7 deadly sins:
These are sins that will prevent us in finding our way back to the Father of Creation. Jesus, as the Son of God, came down to earth to live amongst us, to show us how we can live a life free of fear from evil. This is by living and preaching the Gospel of God’s Unconditional Love. It is not about seeking where evil exists, and avoid that. That is only half the battle. We must know what to do when facing it straight in the eye. There will come a time where it will be hard to distinguish between good and evil. And as Jesus said, “Truth is not seen or heard….but felt.” And God’s Truth can only be felt by a heart that is grounded in God’s Unconditional Love, which has humbled itself in the presence of the Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. We must rid ourselves of the qualities of the 7 deadly sins. Otherwise we will only allow for evil to shackle us to his ways, that are running rampantly on the earth.
Jesus died on the Cross knowing and recognizing that there is still Good in Mankind; that God’s Love still remains in their hearts. The desire to still seek God and His Ways of Love still remains in the hearts and souls of all. It is just the matter of tapping into it, and allowing for God to take over. The Father of Creation seeks for all of His Children to come back to Him, it is just the matter of listening as to how to do so. There are no compromises when it comes to God’s Unconditional Love. He loves you enough to give you till the last breath in your earthly body to ask Him how to. He says He is not of the ways of this world, so to conform to them, would only allow us to enter a path that will only lead to our demise, by shackling us to evil’s ways.
We must remember that the fear that evil tries to instill in us is based on scaring us with earthly means…by human logic. By having a heart rounded in God’s Unconditional Love, just as Jesus did, allows for us to see beyond the ways of this world, and see what is of value in God’s Eyes. That fear will disappear. Because we will see that the logic of this world is really nothing in comparison to that which God can show us through His Unconditional Love. That is what Jesus Christ demonstrated with His Life and His Death on the Cross, at Calvary. He will return again, one day….how will your faith stand before Him?
Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the Lord makes[a] his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
11 After he has suffered,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
Hope is such a powerful thing. Hope is what saves lives. As human beings, this is what separates us from the rest of God‘s Creations. We are able to analyze and see beyond the circumstances in front of us. To forge ahead, with the HOPE of overcoming what is set in black and white (concretely) in front of us. True liberation, is through hope and love, which is what Jesus Christ displayed on the Cross.
When you believe in God who says His Ways are beyond any logic on this earth; that is how HOPE arises. You FEEL and BELIEVE in a logic that only Divinity can inspire. People believe we are fighting wars that are in this physical realm….but there is a bigger war that we are ALL a part of, and that is within the Spiritual Realm. Jesus Christ, through the example of how He led His Life, gave us all of the tools and teachings to the foundation we needed to fight this spiritual war. And by dying on the Cross, He unshackled us from Evil‘s grips. God loved us that much as His Children….that He sent His Son, from Heaven, to live amongst us….to endure everyday struggles and trials…..and to even endure the tortuous death that He did….to go to that extent to show us, how much He loves us…..to show us how much He understands what we go through, based on evil’s plans….to show us that despite all of the wrongs we commit, we have the opportunity make things right in front of Him…and come back home to Him. Jesus dying on the Cross, did so, out of Love. Not because of any deal or cause. Just simply…out of Love, to become the shockabsorber of our sins (which my Dad has often told me, in so many ways).
God has given us the CHOICE….to choose to live in His Ways. Unlike evil, God does not force us into servitude, in exchange of His Love and Acceptance. Once you have tasted Yahweh‘s Love, it becomes something you yearn to feel forever. He doesn’t force you…you just CHOOSE to want it more and more. Evil wants you to believe we serve such an unjust God, that is hypocritical and mean. However, Jesus Christ showed us on the Cross, that His Love for us is so endless, that He sacrifices all, for the sake of bringing us back home to Him. , to the point of sacrificing His Son at the Cross. Jesus Christ, though being the King of Kings….He did not die in a noble way. In fact, He died alongside 2 criminals…..because that is the extent that God was telling us…that HE WILL FORGIVE, NO MATTER THE SIN. We just have to go back to Him….and ask to be forgiven. There is only one thing that can prevent us in going back to Him and asking for that forgiveness, and that is ONE OF THE 7 DEADLY SINS: PRIDE. In fact this sin is what drives evil’s agenda, to take away as many souls possible from God…….it is what got Lucifer kicked out of Heaven…..
Jesus Christ died on the Cross…..to show us ALL, that there is HOPE. Hope that God’s Goodness will rule again. Hope that evil’s rule is over. The final countdown for evil’s rule, began upon Jesus dying on the Cross. Jesus Christ came down from Heaven to be the example of what a life living in complete obedience to God, requires. IF God says He is not of the ways of this world, we must not live in ways that conform to this world; but in ways that Jesus did, out of SELFLESS, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Yeshuay showed that Yahweh’s ways are not hypocritical…but merciful. HOPE is so power….it is the spring board to Love…….
Just as Jesus did, endure the trials….because it is evil trying to kill the hope in you.
Just as Jesus did, endure the heartache…because evil wants to make you not be able to love UNCONDITIONALLY…but only love CONDITIONALLY. Jesus DIED FOR ALL…..He told us to love not only those that love us…but those that hate us….for those who wrong us….for those that we know and don’t know. That is what He demonstrated at the Cross. His Love was for all of Mankind.
Jesus died for the sake of giving us hope, that we can return back to the Father in Heaven….the Father of all Creation.
When we have come to understand that God is an Omnipresent Being, we would understand the Title of this entry; as well as what Jesus professed about Love and Forgiveness. All the Gospels profess that God is in everywhere and in everything….so why do we insist on living our lives as if we can hide our faults and our shortcomings in the Eyes of God. We believe that if we can hide them from eyes of Man, that we can hide them from the Father of Creation. Can you not see how flawed this thinking is? Of course, it is not flawed, if you take out from your life one factor….and to take out that one factor will show the actual PRIDE of EVIL, which caused Lucifer to become Satan….and that is to elimnate God’s Existence and Authority from your life.
It is because of God’s Endless Mercy that we have till our last day on this Earth, to make things right in God’s Eyes. We must never take for granted this Omnipresent Source of Forgiveness and Love. He provides all in SUFFICIENT amounts in the earthly sense; but in EXCESSIVE amounts in the spirtitual sense. Jesus Christ demonstrated this within His Own Life. There is one difference, HE is the Son of God….not just a Man. As a form of God, He came to live amongst us, though being a KING; He lived as a Pauper….and Died not by Nobility…but as a Criminal (accused falsely of a crime He did not commit). That is the extent that God went to, to show us that EARTHLY TITLES do not mean anything in His Eyes; but the loyalty and love we had towards Him as the Father of Creation. He went to that extent to show us that He understands what we go through…by sending His Son to go through the same things that we do, on this earth; and showing us how to live life according to God’s Ways, even when going through the evil’s earthly trials.
When Jesus said that “Truth can not be seen or heart; and that Truth is felt…”; means that there will come a time where many will believe that they can hide evil and its ways by camouflaging it in Earthly Truth. Jesus, by saying this to Pontius Pilate, gave us a clue as to how to discern Evil and to protect our souls in the process. God’s Truth, is innately within us. We were born with it, within us. Evil takes root within us, by how much we allow for it to….and that also determines how much of the natural TRUTH of God, gets erased from within ourselves. Jesus tells us, by “Feeling the Truth”; that God will always guide us, as long as we ask. He is everywhere, and within everything. We have just recognize that, and His Authority in our lives. He sees it all already. So why not just acknowledge that? God’s Truth will withstand the sands of Time; and even the conditions of this Earth. By knowing this, we will understand why Jesus came to Earth. He saved a world that He Felt God’s Truth still existed, within the hearts of many that dwelled here. He died for the sake of Love; for the sake of showing that Our Father’s Love trumps all of this Earth….and it was worth dying for.
Despite Evil’s Lies running rampantly to eliminate the very thoughts of God’s Truth; by Jesus coming to Earth, God took it one step further in saying…”I lived amongst you; and I loved you as much as to die for you.” What greater love is there than that? To love…even beyond your own self. When God’s Truth is the ruling Code of Conduct in your life; having taken deep roots within your heart and soul….then even in moments of your life, where you have lost your way….you will find your way back to Him. That Truth will still dwell within you. You will find joy, even in the silence of your lives…because those are your intimate moments with God; as long as you CHOOSE for them to be. He watches you all the time, waiting for you to grab hold of His Hand, that He has continuously outstretched to you.
“Let the Poor Man say that I am rich in Him….
Let the Lost Man say that I am found in Him….
Let the River Flow….
Let the Blind Man say I can see again…
And let the Dead Man say that I am Born Again…”
–Let the River Flow, Darrel Evans
