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.
The called souls,
Each day has a goal;
To use their God given freewill,
In finding peace despite the chaos, and stand still.
To have confidence in the God that they serve,
Who can take all that evil throws at them, and divert them with a curve.
God, the Father of Creation states that His Divine Laws of Love,
Does not conform what is here down below, in His Kingdom up above.
For His Son, Jesus Christ showed humanity at Calvary’s Cross,
That in order to enter Eternity, all earthly mannerisms need to be put to death, for it to be lost.
To adopt the Divine Laws of Love, it should be seen,
By the Holy Spirit, a soul that is childlike, innocent, and a soul whose intentions are clean.
Evil will hunt such souls in order to destroy,
In order to prevent the revelation of God, the Father of Creation’s Truth, so that it can remain coy.
For Satan and his demons know that God’s Truth always prevails,
Despite of the earth’s ways, he tries to manipulate, twist, and in all its senses and parts to entail.
Jesus Christ showed us at the Cross, with His Own Earthly Life,
That in order to enter into the Heavenly Eternity, the Called Souls will have to go through earthly trials and strife.
For Satan’s goal is to try to grab all souls off of the Path,
Because before his own rebellion against God, the Father of Creation, forgot to do the math.
As a result, evil does not want humanity to have what it can never have again,
What it decided to rebel against…to stand before the throne of The Almighty, where humanity can.
The Called Souls are aware of the Truth the God’s Son, Jesus Christ, revealed at the Cross,
They will endure all earthly trials and strife…and are determined of all evil ways within them, to toss.
These Called Souls, consult with the Shepard everyday;
As to give them the same strength that He had on Calvary’s Cross, and to not grow dismayed.
For the Holy Spirit leads these Called Souls,
To help them to discern the deception of Satan and his minions, in order to keep their heart on the goal.
The Ultimate Symbol of God’s Unconditional Love for Humanity, that was shown by Jesus Christ His Son,
Was meant to be an example to what extent may be required of the Called Souls, and the crowns and royal robes they are meant to don.
All the Prophets that walked before us demonstrated a life free of the riches of this world,
As well as a heart and soul that is childlike, simple, and pure, with unconditional love to unfurl.
Chaos…confusion….pain…..and deceit are evil’s tools;
Through money, beauty and materialism, evil will pull away souls that are the unchosen….the tainted….and the fools.
The Chosen Souls will endure to the very end;
So that through Jesus Christ, their Captain…their Shepard….can of the relationship between God and Humanity, mend.
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.
Love is a universal language that can be understood by all of Creation. However, it is selfless, unconditional love that is the purest form of Love, through which Divinity, God, the Father of Creation, dictates. Though Love is understood by all, it is a way of life that is practiced by very few. Though being understood by all of creation, it is a way of life that is practiced by very few. The self love that people often talk about is to love oneself enough as to not cause harm to the self, by the self; it is not to love the self, at the cost of others’ welfare/being, for personal gain, particularly earthly gain (to which evil professes is OK to do). The self love is to love yourself enough to not cause personal harm to hurt the soul inside, to which God, the Father of Creation has given each member of humanity charge over, at the time they were conceived in their mothers’ wombs.
The Divine Laws of Love consist of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. It also dictates that while upholding these things in the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, that we should ask for the Guidance of the Holy Spirit to know which ways of life will not violate the Divine Laws of Love. They ask us to not entertain rebellion against the moral codes established to keep humanity within the Divine Laws of Love, such as the 10 Commandments….and that which was reinforced in the Sermon on the Mount, by Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu), as the only Begotten Son of Jesus Christ. As Jesus Christ has said, “Truth is not seen or heard, but felt.” There is a Divine Father of Creation, that has His Holy Spirit guide those souls that are bound towards the Eternal Kingdom, which conform to the Divine Laws of Love, stated previously. There is no justification for any violation, because to follow these, where there is no harm towards another Creation, especially against Humanity, was what Man was originally created to do. To have a sense of control over whatever can be manipulated by the 5 senses, and lead to the 7 Cardinal Sins (Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, Envy, Wrath, Pride, and Lust), is what Man was the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation was created to be.
We must always understand that the moral code for humanity is all the same, it is when it goes from species to species that the code differs. But even then, those that come from a Divine Source do not deviate…violate…rebel…against the Divine Laws of Love. This is what a connection to a Divine Source can provide for a soul bound to the Eternal Kingdom. The Divine Laws of Love are consistent, because of the Omnipresence of the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum). The key is that God, the Father of Creation, does not force His Ways on Humanity, but gives us the choice to choose to follow the Divine Laws of Love…which are His Ways into the Eternal Kingdom…it is these ways that are the way of life of souls in the Eternal Kingdom. We are given this choice everyday we wake up…the connection that we develop with Him, through the Life Example that Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshua, Yeshu Christu) showed us, through His Earthly Life and Death on the Cross, at Calvary…is the key as to seeing what God the Father of Creation expects of us. Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) became the Ultimate Symbol of God’s Unconditional Love, for Humanity, by making His Begotten Son as the Sacrificial Lamb for His Most Prized Creation. The Guidance of the Holy Spirit will help such souls bound towards the Eternal Kingdom, to be in obedience to the Divine Laws of Love; and the Holy Spirit Guidance is provided to those that possess souls that are worthy in the Eyes of God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum). Such a soul knows no other way to live, other than to follow the Divine Laws of Love…
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.
Those that God calls, undergo great earthly trials. This is for the purpose of refining one’s faith in Him; to rid the soul of such people that are called, from the ways of this world, to which God (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) said He is not a part of. It is not about “proving oneself to the Father”; as many nonbelievers may say…it is about refining the soul to the next level of enlightenment in knowing the Existence of a Higher Force, the Omnipresent God.
If we look at the lives of prophets, saints, and even Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshua, Yeshuay) Himself, they were all not exempt from undergoing earthly trials. Of course Jesus Christ underwent them with a predestined Purpose, in order to save all of Humanity from being lost from the presence of the Omnipresent God (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah). God always knows the extent of our strength more than we know of ourselves. So there will be times, where we will be tested, beyond our comfort zone, in order for God to show us to the next step in our paths to His Eternal Kingdom. The only way we can survive these tests is by not relying on our own human strength, but by relying on the strength through which, Our Father, can provide to us. This is how Jesus Christ got through His Earthly trials, while He roamed on this earth. Our human strength is not meant to withstand these trials; our human logic is not meant to rationalize all the inner workings of such trials; and our human senses are not meant to withstand some of the trials that may cause us to fail them.
We have to remember that trials in our lives, are meant to refine our spirits, our faith. It is a requirement to break away from the ways of a world that has been lost to darkness, and with very few who know of the light of the Eternal Kingdom. In fact, Christ did say, “Those that are considered last, will be considered in my Father’s Kingdom; and those that are considered first, will be considered last.” It serves as a reminder to those that are called to the path that we should not rely on our own abilities, our own strength and logic, to live our lives; but to always be aware of the Omnipresent God, and how the Holy Spirit guides us to live our lives in accordance to the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. Such ways conform to the ways of the Divine Laws of Love, which consist of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy.
Trials are meant to show and provide a testimony to show those who are enduring the trials, to become more convicted in the Unconditional Love and Mercy of God, the Father of Creation; and to serve as witnesses and beacons of Light, in the Dark World and its ways. We must remember that we must take up our own crosses in life, to break ourselves from conforming to the ways of this world, in order to find ourselves on the path to the Eternal Kingdom, which are the Divine Laws of Love. The only way to conquer such trials is with prayer and repentance. One of the biggest obstacles of mankind is the sin of pride. This sin can come is many different forms; some that are obvious, others that are not so obvious. We must be mindful of this sin, and the only way we can be mindful of this is through our spiritual paths.
As seekers on the path to God’s Eternal Kingdom, we must remember that God says His Ways do not conform to the world’s ways but are beyond them. So, if our lives focus and center around valuing the things of this world, we should seriously reconsider the path we are on, if we consider ourselves and God’s Children. The Life Example that Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) showed us while He roamed this earth, should show us what should be the focus of our lives, and how we should conduct ourselves. Granted because of our sinful human nature, this kind of a life is often very difficult for our weak human nature to conform to. Because of the sin introduced by Satan in the Garden of Eden, we are prone to going against the perfection to which God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) created for us to be. This was Satan’s gameplan from the very beginning to make God’s most prized possessions to stray off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom, and to take away as many souls as he could from the Kingdom. He knew what he could never have again, and that is to sit in the Holy Presence of God, the Father of Creation, due to his sin, as Lucifer, of pride (of knowing that at one time he was God’s highest ranked angel), vanity (of thinking that he could be equal to God), and envy (of Humanity being God’s most prized creation, and possibly outranking him in the Eternal Kingdom); it ate him up so much that he took 1/3 of the angels from the Kingdom, and transformed into Satan.
We must remember that because we are called to be God’s Children, we will always be the target of Satan and his demons. This is why we will endure extreme trials in our lives. For those who are stronger in their Walks on the Path to the Eternal Kingdom, the trials will be more severe, and even at times, as we have seen with our brothers and sisters in parts of the East, to the point of death. Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) showed us that we should uphold God’s Divine Laws of Love at all costs, even to the point of Death. Because even this earthly body can hold us captive to the sinful human nature. Those who are the path to God, sees right through the deception of evil, which are restricted to the ways of this world. Those who have understood Christ’s Mission on the Cross, know that there is something more than the ways of this world; and that they will be the victims of Satan’s envy.
So if you are “trial free” in your life; you should consider, is your spiritual journey truly on the right path? And if you have trials, you should consider, are they occurring because of your own choices or actions….or is it because of you truly following the path of the Divine Laws of Love, of the Eternal Kingdom. True, we are to be happy and at peace, but that is even during the chaos in the world; not because of earthly things, circumstances, and ways to bring such things to us. It means to unconditionally love, not to love based on the conditions of the circumstance, or to what is convenient. It is not greatness on this earth that we should be striving for, because God says His Ways are beyond the ways of this world. Satan will use any life circumstance and person, for his purpose, to take a Child of God off of the path of meeting Him, and entering into the Eternal Kingdom; because his realm is restricted to the ways of this world. He wants to bring so much affliction on God’s Children in order for them to get just as angry at God, as he has; for them to give up the path to the Eternal Kingdom, so that they will not enter it, just like he can never do again. He wants you to feel that lack of peace and pain, of never meeting God, the Father of Creation, just like he does. He wants you to become so tired and weary of following the path to the Eternal Kingdom (because it would require for one to go against what is easy, and to travel a path not followed by many). He wants you to forget about God’s Unconditional Love; and even for your to be too tired to take advantage of the direct link that Jesus Christ reestablished for Humanity by dying on the Cross, PRAYER. Satan destroyed it for a reason in the Garden of Eden (where Adam and Eve had a direct connection in communicating with God, with their sinless human nature); so that we will be lost forever; but Jesus Christ was able to connect us against through the shield He offered through the blood that He gave to cover our sins, if we chose to see what He did.
So, my brothers and sister, hold close guard over your souls. This is the one task that God gave us, once he breathed life into us. He gives us the choice everyday, for us to seek His Guidance in our daily lives, to help us protect our souls from being lost to the same Eternity that Satan and his demons have. We will have to endure earthly trials, and the closer we get in our paths, the more convicted we get in our walks to the Eternal Kingdom, the more sever our trials will get. Satan will not go after those that have already conformed to his ways; so no need for the trials. They are not a point of envy or a threat to his plan. He already has their souls. He wants to steal the souls that God already has called, and convicted to come to His Eternal Kingdom. We must put on the Armor of God everyday, and cover ourselves in the Shield of Protection that Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) gave us through the shedding of His Blood on the Cross at Calvary, by being God’s Sacrificial Lamb, to save Humanity….so that we can discern the deception of evil, and reach the Eternal Kingdom.
