If you do not having challenges during your spiritual journey,then you must readjust your path: “Take Up Your Cross, and Follow Me.”-Jesus Christ
The faithful in God, the Father of Creation, has to undergo what Jesus Christ has commanded, and that is to “to take up your Cross, and follow Me.” If we look at the many Prophets that walked before us, they all underwent earthly suffering and trials. Why? Because God, says His Ways are not of the world’s but are beyond them. And if He says that His Divine Laws of Love are not of the ways of this world, then that means we, as followers of the Divine Laws of Love, and His Son, Jesus Christ, we will have to go against the grain of this world, in order to enter the gates of the Eternal Kingdom. This is something pretty hard to swallow, I know. However, we must consider, if Jesus Christ was not exempt from the world’s ways, the trials, anguish, and tribulations, who are we to be exempt from them? Are we any better than the Son of God, the Father of Creation? Are we any better than the many great Prophets that walked before us, dedicating their lives in service to God, the Father of Creation?
This is what Jesus Christ meant, to take up your Cross and follow me.
As followers of the Divine Laws of Love, which are the ways of the Eternal Kingdom, we will having to endure anguish, trials, and tribulations. Ever since rebellion against the Father of Creation was created between humanity and Him, we will be in that constant battle between what was originally meant to be ours (as a part of humanity) and what evil wants us to be distracted with, which is being away from God, the Father of Creation. The trials and anguish are the tools that evil tries to use to bring you away from God, even to the point of hating Him. Evil wants to portray its “easy, happy, earthly rich and powerful, rebellious ways” as the most ideal, in order to distract humanity away from the Eternal Kingdom. We, as humanity were never meant to live the way we are living today. That is not how God, had originally created for humanity to be. The trials and anguish is what evil uses to take humanity away from God. It is through the trials and anguish that we turn to God, the Father of Creation, and defeat satan and his demons, as well as their rebellious ways. Hardships, anguish, and trials is what puts God’s Faithful through the “Refiner’s Fire” to break them away from the world’s ways to which He says His Ways are not a part of. Ever since the first sin of humanity was committed in the Garden of Eden, humanity has been chained to the ways of this world, which belongs to evil and its ways. Jesus Christ, as He did when He roamed this Earth, stated for us to, “Take up your Cross, and follow me.” However, we must unchain ourselves from the ways of this world, in order to be found worthy to enter the pure gates of Heaven.
God, the Father, does not force his ways on us, they way evil does. He wants us to CHOOSE Him. He wants us to see that He love us, because He never gave up on us as His Children….His most prized creations. Despite the rebellion of humanity, He still sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to give humanity another chance at the Eternal Paradise This is what angers satan and his demons. They were thrown out, and not given another chance; while humanity was given another chance through Jesus Christ, His Son. God, does not leave us, it is a matter of acknowledging His Presences within our lives. It is truly as simple as that. But we must understand that not all earthly triumphs are not in conformance to God’s ideals. We must understand that not all of what is considered, “good” is in conformance to God’s Ideals, and in conformance to those within His Eternal Kingdom. Not all that is considered beautiful is not in accordance to the beauty in the Eternal Paradise. As a Father, He loves His Children. Evil was to convince us of the opposite. He loves us to the point of knowing our potential, of knowing of the greatness He knows He created for us to be. We must have confidence of this, even through the trials, anguish, and hardships that we face on this earth.
This is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life and Death on the Cross. Since the time of His Birth on this Earth, Jesus Christ was persecuted. Since the time He began His Ministry, He faced opposition, despite knowing who He was, and knowing that He was correct, despite the earthly people that were chained to the earth’s ways, were trying to dictate to Him, as to how He should believe and live. He bowed down in service to sinners, outcasts of this world, poor, and criminals, even though He was a Member of the Most High Court. Just like us, He too underwent the temptations of satan, while He roamed this earth…By facing satan and his demons, by turning to God, with each of these things, more and more trials and anguish were thrown at him, by satan and his demons. To the point of being convicted of a crime He did not commit, received the sentence for it, which brought death to His Earthly self. Jesus Christ still turned to God, the Father, despite all of this. God went to the extent of saying that His Ways are not of the world’s ways but are beyond them by showing us through the earthly life and death on this earth. He did not give Jesus Christ, an earthly rich life, free of earthly trials and hardships. In fact, He gave Him some of the toughest trials to endure, to show us that He was still with Him, just like He will still be with us in all. He loved us to give us the opportunity to choose the greatness that He had originally created Humanity to be.
We must have that confidence that God, loves us. Our triumphs are because of Him….our trials are with His Permission, in order for us to unshackle ourselves to what evil wants us to be shackled to….its ways, so that we will never know of the greatness that God, the Father of Creation, had originally created humanity to be. But we are called to endure trials. If we are not enduring trials, then it is when we should consider, is there a storm coming, or are we really focusing on our Eternal Paths. Spiritual journeys are filled with trials and hardships, in order to refine ourselves back to the original greatness that we were created to be. This is were true love between God the Father and His Children will develop.
God, help me today;
To trust in you, through out my long days.
I, like so man, so easily fall;
To the temptations that evil sets, and from off your path, I stumble and fall.
For through Jesus Christ, you showed all of Mankind;
That we no longer to the Devil, must we be chained and bound.
Through Jesus Christ dying on Calvary’s Cross;
Father, you showed all of humanity, that you were not willing to evil, make us a loss.
You gave Your Son, as an example for Mankind to be;
In You to trust wholeheartedly, despite the chaos in this world instilling fear in us to flee…
Christ had said that in order to enter Your Throne Room, we would be required to walk;
A path less travelled, and by many will not travel or about it even talk.
God, pursues humanity…longing for us to be;
Uniting with Him, in His Eternal Paradise to exist…to see.
To trust in His Divine Laws Love;
Which rule and reign, and conquer all from Up Above.
“In God I Trust” should be our mantra…our driving force;
Knowing that Divinity is the winning…eternal Source.
For those who were given the Gift of the Holy Spirit to guide their souls;
Will having the eternal struggle, with reaching God’s Throne Room as their goal.
Evil try to discredit God’s Children. This is what was done while the Prophets roamed this earth, when they walked amongst us. This is what happened when the Son of God, Himself, roamed this earth….Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu). Evil does not want its true ways and identity to be revealed or even be recognized by the majority because it wants to take away as many souls as it can from God’s Eternal Kingdom. The danger that God’s Children pose to its plan is why they need to cause the confusion (as mentioned in the previous entry) and since God’s Children and their ways will contradict the majority who decide to follow Evil’s ways…evil will try to discredit them.
Evil will discredit those bound to the Path of the Divine Laws of Love, to hide in plain sight. Since the time that humanity first sinned in the Garden of Eden, evil’s ways became more enticing, came with more ease to humanity. Which is why, humanity will find evil’s ways more pleasureable, enjoyable, and even beneficial, to those who decide out of their freewill to take part in Satan’s prideful, violent….intolerant, and envious ways, willingly; and will see God, ‘s Divine Laws of Love as unnecessary…..intolerant….weak….and niave. Satan and his demons will convince those that decide to willing rebel against God, the Father of Creation’s Divine Laws of Love, that the Divine Laws of Love are foolish.
We must remember, a light that has been lit by God, the Father of Creation, in a soul that He saw fit to represent His Kingdom, while they roam this earth, is undeniable to even the most coldest and hardest of hearts, and the emptiest of souls. In just the same token, a soul that is guided by God’s Divine Laws of Love can recognize another soul that is empty or being led by Satan’s darkness. However, in order to hide it’s identity, evil will take on the philosophy of “survival of the fittest” and try to discredit God’s Children, so that its identity can remain hidden in this world, and continue with its plan to pull as many souls away from God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh).
Remember, Jesus Christ has said, “Those who are first will be last; and those that are last will be first.” This is what Jesus Christ meant. Those who will be last in this world, considered the least, will be the first in God’s Eyes. We just need to remain on the path of God’s Divine Laws of Love, despite what Satan and his demons will do in trying to discredit God’s Children. A soul that is lit, is a soul that is guided by the Divine Holy Spirit. It does not mean that the person is perfect; it just means that God has seen something worthy within such a soul that He deemed such a soul worthy to enter into His Eterrnal Kingdom…it is just the matter of enduring the trials to the very end, just as all of the Prophets before us demonstrated; as well as the one and only Jesus Christ, Himself, through His Life, Death, and Resurrection.
Many Christians often profess that they have a testimony and then return to their way of life, prior to the incident to which they call a “testimony”. We must be careful of this because it is a tool given within our ministry to demonstrate a conversion of heart and souls for the Kingdom of God. Once God has revealed Himself to someone, that person will be forever changed in mind, body, and soul. A testimonial serves with the purpose of converting a heart and soul towards Divinity, and the Divine Laws of Love. When someone has encountered their testimonial event, there will be a change in heart and soul, that could not be denied by anyone that walks in its path. Such a soul that has been inspired by this Divine Event in this person’s life, will even touch the coldest of hearts, and even the hearts of those that are most distant from God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah). So, we must be mindful of what we call as a testimony. A testimony also serves the purpose of being a testimonial of God’s Existence on this Earth, while the Holy Spirit guards evil from overtaking it.
A born again spirit is what will tell us that we have undergone our testimonial. Often such events is to change from a way of life that was dishonoring God, the Father of Creation. It is that conviction that has been put within us, through the Holy Spirit that will tell us that God has spoken to us, and showed His Grace upon us with this event. It is through this that we know of the Omnipresence of God, and will have a humble and repentent heart. The Holy Spirit will prick us everytime we violate God’s Divine Laws of Love, give us courage to right the wrongs we commit to others both knowingly and unknowingly. He will take us onto life paths that are unorthodox to the ways of this world, and will show us His Grace in His Protection that we can carry on this testimony to covert more hearts for His Kingdom, and to spread the word of His Divine Laws of Love.
Do not misunderstand, we must be faithful in all things great and small in our lives, but if God is first and foremost in our lives, we can differentiate what is meant to be a testimonial and what is meant to be a part of our everyday lives, and the faith that we decided to follow. We should thank Him for His Graces and Mercies everyday; however, we must also be able to follow the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, to discern what is meant to be a testimonial to convert hearts and souls for the Kingdom of God. Scriptures says we should pray in the privacy of our rooms, as well as praise Him. If we call ourselves Christians, we should follow the example to which Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) gave us through His Own Earthly Life, and Death on the Cross. I think a lot of Christians forget that. To be honest, it frustrates me that they do. But this is what the Holy Spirit tells me, and I am no one to judge another.
Giving thanks to God for our everyday lives, is meant to be in the privacy of our hearts and souls. While testimonials are tools given to us to help convert souls for God. I have had the privilege of hearing many testimonials, witnessing them, and even having many of my own within my short life. The following are testimonials that I have heard:
- People being saved from addictions
- Being saved from medical conditions to which all logic of science would have said that it was impossible
- Being protected at the time of persecution
- Justice for those that commit injustice against them, not by their own hand but by God alone as a reward for their faithfulness in forgiveness and faith in Him.
- A conversion of heart and soul from hearing the testimony of another person
- Being able to do and achieve things by being in the “right place at the right time” in order to carry out God’s Plan
We must remember, that we are responsible for whatever we say and do, if we call ourselves followers and believers in Christ Jesus. We must be mindful of how we represent ourselves, and even know to whom God’s Pearls of Wisdom should be revealed to, since we were given that privilege through our testimony. God rewards our faith, He knows is this world that is ruled by evil, that it is not an easy task. This is why He gives His Testimonial to those that He has the confidence that will uphold Him, and well represent Him. He does not define Himself by the ways of His Creation, therefore His Rewards and Gifts will not conform to the ways of this world. We must remember that. Evil will persecute those who hold the testimony that can convert heart. Evil will try to discredit them. This is what we should understand from all of the saints and prophets that walked before us. There are times where we will stand alone, never forget that. God’s People will not stand as a part of the majority…they will be the minority. This is why He says, few will enter the gates, though many or all are called. We must continue to stay strong despite what they world around may do. This is what Jesus Christ showed us, with the loyalty of 12 disciples, He was able to spread the Word of the Eternal Kingdom, to nations all over the world. Whatever is ordained by God, the Father of Creation is not what is accepted by the many…but the minority.
When you think of this season, what comes to your mind? I realize that Jesus Christ was born to a world that was slowly dying; and travelling further and further away from the eternal life that God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) had originally created all of humanity to be. Humanity has defined itself by the ways of this dying world, to which God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh), stated that His Ways are not a part of. He created for us to lead a life for us to find our way back to Him, within the Eternal Paradise that He reigns from; and to be present within the Throne Room that He sits.
Jesus Christ, (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu), had to be born into this world, as one final attempt to show humanity, what God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) expects of it, and the ways that need to be followed in order to enter into the Eternal Kingdom. He professed that many will be called, few will be able to follow it. It is not an easy road to follow, but yet those who follow it at all costs, even to the point of death to their earthly life, will see the Eternal Paradise, and be in the very Presence of the Creator, just as Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) demonstrated with His Earthly Life. We are souls that roam this earth, within an earthly vessel. When the earthly vessel gives out, the soul lives on, and will be judged based on the life led, the purity of the soul that resulted from such a life that was lived, while on the earth. God knows it is is not an easy path to follow; He saw how His Son, Jesus Christ struggled with the merciless human nature. However, He only wants those that are convicted to lead a life in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love (ways of Nonviolence, Mercy and Unconditional Love); which results in a soul that is as pure as a child.
Jesus Christ was born to save the souls of humanity, so that we can be reunited with God, the Father of Creation. Evil had separated us from Him, upon the first defiance of humanity, through the temptation of Satan in the Garden of Eden. Since then, humanity has flirted with evil and its ways, and has justified many violations to God’s Divine Laws of Love, in order to continue defying God, the Father of Creation. Though our human mind has limitations as to comprehending the infinite wisdom of the Creator, Jesus Christ, through His Earthly Life, gave humanity a window to an understanding God’s Divine Laws of Love, through it.
And this is what I remember every Christmas. Jesus Christ was born, for this reason; and He died for this reason…to give humanity a final chance to redeem itself, so that it can find its way back to the Eternal Paradise, that it once saw in one glimpse in the Garden of Eden, before it feel prey to the temptation of Satan. Through having a personal relationship with God, the Father of Creation, we will have the Holy Spirit to guides to wards ways that abide in the Divine Laws of Love, automatically. Satan will fractionate evil, to deceive humanity, as it did in the Garden of Eden, so that there will be bits of truth, in his lies, to bring those of humanity who fall for the deception further away from the Eternal Paradise that God originally created for humanity to be a part of….to be seated in His Very Throne Room. So remember the season….remember Jesus Christ…and what He accomplished for humanity through His Earthly Life…and let it serve as a reminder of what is expected of us, while we roam this earth.
For those of us given a testimony, those were given to us as a tool to use within our ministry and as a rememberance to even ourselves, about the Existence of God, the Father of Creation. It serves as a tool, to show others going through similar situations about God’s willingness to come to our aid or to come into our lives, as long as we surrender to His Will and His Ways. God is so pure, that He can not have any thing that is bound to the ways of this world, because He says that His Ways are beyond those that are found here on Earth; they abide to ways of Selfless Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy. Such ways are not self gaining, but in service to others.
Testimonies are evidence in someone’s life, that serve as examples of God’s Existence on this earth. Such testimonies are granted to anyone, not just those that are walking in His Ways already, but to anyone that God has the hope of changing in heart, mind, body, and soul.
When looking back at my own testimony, I often wondered about why did it need to happen? Or why did it have to happen the way it did? I think a lot of people feel that way, when they are going through what they/we all later on come to find out is for the purpose of our testimony. I look back now, and I know that I was only able to get through what I had, because of God alone. There was no way I could have overcome that with any human strength, or by any measures of my own, or my family’s. This was the first time, I personally started to fast and pray in my life, though being born and raised a Christian I truly do believe that some things are predestined to happen, to a person. And I also believe what Mother Teresa had said because of this:
God entrusts those who He believes will uphold His Ways, to the point of feeling convicted in showing others of His Unconditionally Loving Ways. What we must be vigilant to is how evil will use our best of intentions, to mocking and even distorting the purpose of us sharing our testimonies. The people who were a part of our testimonies, in an adverse way, may not want to admit to their ways, and accuse you of being vengeful, in order to prevent you from sharing your testimony to help others out. God still tells you to share your testimony…because you never know who you can save through it, and that is the most important in all this. God, also says that many may just outright not want to hear or read it for the fear of knowing what they feared the most, that there is a God, who hears and sees all. God, says, this may save others too…so we should go on and share it, and it will be in their hands whether they decide to hear it for the testimony that it is.
We should always put God and firstmost in our lives Evil will try to distort this in so many ways. In the end God, knows that because His Children denied binding and shackling themselves to the ways of this world that they will be considered the LEAST of this world. This is what the prophets and servants in times past have shown us, and this is what Jesus Christ, His Son, showed us as He roamed this Earth, and died on the Cross at Calvary. The Holy Spirit guides such souls that carries the Testimony that God had hand picked for them. It is up to us who were given the testimony to chose whether or not to use it for His Work for the Eternal Kingdom or not.
So with that said, it has been awhile since I have shared my testimony, so please have a look at the following links to see my testimony. May it bless you the way it has me, in having some insight to the ways of God, the Father’s, Kingdom. The links below are the links to my testimony:
May we all continue the good fight, and know of God’s Endless Mercy and Unconditional Love. Take up your Cross, just as Jesus Christ did, on the Cross at Calvary, as the Son of God, that roamed this earth. Though belonging to the Highest of all Courts, He took on the earthly punishment of a criminal, though not comitting any crime, and suffered the death of one. He lived by the means of a pauper, though being the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords….we become the cornerstone when we are considered the last.
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.
