There comes a time where we all have exhausted all human logic, and we realize the limitations of it. No matter what spiritual path one follows this is the conclusion that those on it, come to. To deny the presence of a Higher Force, would put one at the mercy of the restricted parameters of human logic, and to only see what is on the surface in this thing that we call “life”. This will make us miss out even the smallest things in life. Sometimes the things considered as the simplest things, can reveal the most about ourselves. We see the power of the pure love we see in the innocence of children and animals. We see this in the beauty of nature’s flowers, trees, bodies of water, and even in songs and stories.
It is so easy for one to get so lost, to the point that even the simplest things in life, that are the most powerful in witnessing to the presence of a Higher Force, to which I call as “God”, will lose its luster. When we begin to see this in our lives, it is very important to reset ourselves, within our spiritual journeys, in setting ourselves back to the path towards finding the knowledge of the Higher Force, to which I, again, call God (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh).
In fact, the more we see the beauty in the smallest things in life, the further we get in our spiritual journeys. Once someone has chosen to follow or pursue a spiritual journey, that yearning will never leave….because even that urging was inspired by a Higher Force for one to pursue and follow. True, one can lose their way or deviate for a moment, but once called one will always find their way back. God calls such hearts, and like any father, He will pursue to find you, and bring you back home. It is up to us to follow Him, when He finds us again.
I think the hardest thing for any person, once they have chosen to pursue a spiritual journey, is they begin to see things for its face value, and there is a discernment that enters within a soul. Your soul is not at peace if it goes against the ways of this path, no matter how much the human body wants to. As souls that decide to follow the path to spiritual enlightenment, it is important to take on the reproof of the Higher Force (God, Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) in order to find the ways of the Eternal Paradise. The more we do, the closer we get on our spiritual journeys.
When we decide to follow a spiritual path, in order to seek a Higher Enlightenment, or a Higher Truth, we will directly face the what is not seen with the naked eyes, and that is the spiritual warfare that is occurring at these Higher Realms, a battle between good and evil. And yes…..I do believe that there is good and evil. Anything or any action that causes a violation to the Divine Laws of Love, which consist of ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy…thoughts, words or actions that serve the self….are violating these Divine Laws of Love, that rule the Eternal Kingdom. For God, the Father of Creation has said that His Ways do not conform to the ways of this world, which only conform to violating His Divine Laws of Love. As Jesus Christ, the only Begotten Son of God has shown us through His Own Life and Death on the Cross at Calvary, God’s Children are selfless in nature, do not serve the self, but serves the Eternal Kingdom of God….which is guided by the Holy Spirit. It is the souls that are being fought over, and a soul is broken down by how sturdy its vessel is. A vessel is only made sturdy through its use, wear and tear. A diamond is made shiny and sparkly, when it goes through its own refiner’s fire.
The trials that come into our lives serve the purpose of refining our vessels, so that the souls within can develop endurance to withstand whatever evil may try to throw at a spiritually enlightened soul that is bound to the path to the Eternal Kingdom. It is not about the prosperity on this earth that gauge the success of our spiritual journeys, because they can all instantaneously be taken away. God only provides permanent circumstances, and things that withstand the “sands of time”, not even evil can take such things away. That is why God says that His Ways are not of the world’s ways but are beyond them. Nothing goes on without God’s Knowledge, however, if trials were to come to those that have dedicated their lives to the path of the Eternal Kingdom, it is serve one purpose…and that is to make us stronger. There will come a time where evil will come face to face with us. God wants to gives us the strength that He knows that we are capable of….He wants to give you the strength that He gave His Own Son, Jesus Christ, on the Cross at Calvary. This is why Jesus Christ, came to live amongst us, to show us how much God understands us….and wanted to show Mankind, as His Most Prized Creation, His Love for it. Evil hated that…which is why we face trials. Those that know of God’s Love for Humanity…..evil wants to suppress that within them. Evil doesn’t want us to know of God’s Love….it wants us to hate God, as much as it does. Through Jesus Christ, the direct communication between God and Mankind was reestablished again, which was originally destroyed at the Garden of Eden, by Satan Himself. Jesus Christ showed us, on that Cross at Calvary, that we should not deviate from our Prayer Lives, no matter how busy our lives get in this world. It is through Prayer that we tap in to that direct communication with God, the Father of Creation, which is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life, when He roamed this Earth.
If we see a once strong prayer warrior getting more busy in this world, and forgetting to make time to nurture their soul….these are the ones that will fail the trials. We should pray for them…..if we remember to pray, we should pray for them. We are all in this together, those of us that decide to follow the path to the Eternal Kingdom…to follow God’s Divine Laws of Love. It is through prayer in our prayer closets that God allows for the Holy Spirit to enter us, and help us to discern the deception of evil. Evil will always try to deceive those bound on this path, in order to take them away from the path of the Eternal Kingdom….PERMANENTLY.
So endure the trials knowing that God trusts you to overcome whatever evil tries to throw at you….in fact the harder the trials, the more faith God has in you to help Him prove evil wrong about Mankind. You see God has given Mankind the very place within His Throne Room…and only those that have followed God’s Divine Laws of Love can enter. This will require souls enduring the trials and tribulations in order to break away from the sinstained ways of this world, that violate the Divine Laws of Love which consist of ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. This will in turn make fertile ground for the Holy Spirit to enter such souls, and help them to discern the deception of evil.
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…
When do you come to God? Is it only when you are in trouble? Or is it when you want something earthly? Is it when you feel sad, and you want it to be taken away? Or only when someone has caused a great injustice to you? Though these are valid times to come to Him, how many times do we go to Him, when there are good times? Or how about when we were able to overcome a trying time? How about even when we wake up to another day to live? Or having a bed to sleep in, food on our tables, and a roof over our heads?
We must remember that God asks us to seek Him, with all of our hearts and minds…our very being. We are to acknowledge Him in our good times and our bad. We are to seek His Forgiveness in our flaws and our wrongdoings. While we roam this earth, in order to remain on the path to the Eternal Kingdom, we must remember that God is the Constant Force that helps us to keep our walks straight to His Eternal Kingdom. We must remember that the end does not justify the means, through His Son, Jesus Christ, He showed us that the path that we take also counts. It does not mean that He does not expect us to commit mistakes or to have flaws, that is why He had to sent Jesus Christ, His Son, to reestablish that pathway back to Him. However, He expects us to admit to them, and to repent for them, so that we can unshackle that ways of Satan and his demons, from us, so that we can travel back on that path to His Eternal Kingdom.
We must remember that God says His Ways are not of the world/earth’s ways, but are beyond them. He does not confine Himself, to the definitions of His Creation of Him. His Ways are Eternal. We are to seek them. His Divine Laws of Love consist of ways that are Nonviolence, Mercy, and Unconditional Love. Through the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, we guides those that seek Him and His Kingdom’s Ways, in a uniform manner that conforms to His Divine Laws of Love.
The human heart can be utterly deceptive, because it can be manipulated by the ways of the human condition, the sinful nature of human nature, that was created by Satan, upon his temptation to Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden. Jesus Christ came to this earth, in order to counter the rebellion in Mankind, that Satan created at that time, in order to separate Humanity from God’s Eternal Kingdom….Jesus Christ died on the Cross, in order to reestablish that pathway, once again. It is up to us to choose, whether we want to seek or not. And even then, it is not enough to just seek, but to seek to the point that it consumes us….to the point that we violate any of God’s Divine Laws of Love that it will prick the inner peace within our own souls.
Do you only come to God, when you need something? Or do you show your interest in Him, even in the happy moments in your life? How much has God become a part of your daily life? Does it come to the point that to involve him and seeking the ways of His Eternal Kingdom have become just as routine as brushing your teeth and eating food to fuel yourself? Has He become the fuel for your soul? Has He become the “food for your soul“?
We must not only seek Him for the earthly riches and things that we want to attain and achieve, because we will only make room for Satan and his demons to take a foot hold in your life, to fractionate the truth that God puts within each soul that he created. We must seek for HIS WILL of our life, since He created that soul, since the time you were placed in your mother’s womb. God sees those who sincerely seek Him; He knows what we need from day to day to live.When we seek Him…He will provide according to His Will of our lives. When we seek His Kingdom in all aspects of our lives, we will have confidence of His Presence of our lives.
“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” -1 John 4:1
There will come a time where it will be very hard to immediately discern what is of evil; and what is from God. Only someone that has dedicated their life to feeding their soul with the Word of God, the Father of Creation, will have the tools, and the knowledge of knowing this. God reads hearts of humanity, everyday, and He sees who is worthy of such knowledge from His Eternal Kingdom, and who is not. He gives us till our last breaths on this earth, to allow for us to qualify ourselves for such Eternal Knowledge. It is not through acts, or deed of good nature. It is through that loyalty of seeking and searching for His Knowledge, that will immediately translate to our conduct and behavior in everyday life. Through the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, a loyal soul will have this desire, to see the ways of the Eternal Kingdom….in the ways of the Divine Laws of Love. Many evil spirits will try to disguise themselves as such spirits, in order to fool weak souls, away from their search, and as a result, off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom. This is why St. John instructs us in the Scripture above.
When a soul has been found worthy by the Holy Spirit to take root within, it will not know any other way to live, even if the human life is manipulated by its 5 senses. Even if the flesh gives in to a moments worth of what is considered weak (to a spiritually enlightened soul) it will immediately feel the violation, through the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Satan can only manipulate earthly things, and what the earthly human 5 senses can sense, because he knows this can cause weakness within a soul that is destined to the Eternal Kingdom.
“For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.” -Galatian 5:17
A soul that is constantly in prayer, and feeding on the Word of God, will be lead by the Holy Spirit. Does it mean that we may at times fall weak to the flesh, yes, of course! This is what makes us human. However, what is the difference between an enlightened and an unenlightened human being is the way one feeds their soul. Do they feed it through pleasing the flesh, by pleasing the 5 human senses; or through the soul? Does it mean in order to keep the soul on track to the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, that the earthly life will be difficult…at times, yes. Very much so. God said that His Ways do not conform to the world’s ways, but are beyond them.
So how do we test the spirits? One, check their knowledge of a code of conduct against what your soul tells you what is in correlation to the Word of God or not. Also, have people that you can go to, so that you can check that, in the event it is beyond what you know spiritually. A personal philosophy is always reflected in one’s daily life, and in how they treat others. It is also emanated from the soul one owns and possesses. These are things that can not be denied by a soul guided by Divinity.
You see God has put in all of these safe houses and tools within a soul that has been found fit for the Eternal Kingdom. And the path to the Eternal Kingdom, as demonstrated by Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshua, Yeshuay), is not an easy one; at the same time, the path to Hell is quite easy to follow. We must always remember that, and decide with each day we are given to live, by God, the Father of Creation, whether we willingly, as Jesus Christ did, take on the difficult path or not; and heed to the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, to avoid the evils that we come across in our daily lives, that seek for us to fall off of the path that we were always destined to be on.
When we become “enlightened” it means that there is a recognition of the existence of a Higher Source, and there is a Higher Code of Conduct that what we see and hear. When it comes to the Divine Laws of Love, we uphold them at all costs, even if it means to the point of death. Evil will try to break you down in every earthly aspect of your life. However, those who are truly enlightened will not put value in such things. God asks us to look beyond the 5 senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching; and to “feel truth”. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and a constant feeding of the soul through prayer and the Word of God, we will see that the Divine Laws of Love are the ruling parameters in the Divine Eternal Kingdom.
If we look at the life and death of Jesus Christ, and even the saints that are declared, their lives demonstrated such earthly parameters that would resemble simplicity in every aspect, from the heart and mind of the individual walking the path to the Eternal Kingdom; and even a life that does not value worldly things, for its happiness. Such souls never feel alone, because of recognizing the Omnipresence of a Higher Source that controls and conducts the Eternal Kingdom, in the Divine Laws of Love. Those that are not truly enlightened will be imprisoned by the parameters of the world, to which God, the Father of Creation, does not hold Himself to. Such souls will see earthly shortcomings as failures, where God says His Blessings are not of this world; and He is not bound by this limited world. Those that are enlightened by the Eternal Divine Laws of Love will see no boundaries in achieving their own happiness, and as a result, though downtroddened only but for a moment (due to Evil’s attempts to discourage such an enlightened soul off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom) will bounce back up due to the presence of the Holy Spirit within such a soul.
We must remember that true enlightenment comes from understanding that there is more to eternity than the boundaries set by this world. It is beyond what we sense with the 5 senses of the human body. We always seek a Higher Source for the wisdom that is ageless, and drives the logic of Eternity. God does things that are beyond the imagination of any Creation’s logic and ways of thinking. This is why He is the Creator. He does not conform to the ways of His Creations; but we are called to strive to seek His ways. So if God says His Ways are beyond the world’s ways, why would His Rewards conform to the ways of the world that He says that are not His? We should reconsider our path to Enlightenment if we are not hit by trials, to refine our thought processes…..because Satan never feels threatened or insulted by a soul that conforms to his ways, therefore no trials come to souls that do not threaten his goal of taking as many souls away from the path to the Eternal Kingdom. False hope and understanding will come to those that depend on earthly rewards and ways, for their faith on the path to the Eternal Kingdom. If we look at the lives of all those that dedicated themselves to a life serving and seeking the path of the Eternal Kingdom and Enlightenment, we will see that such souls do not think in carnal ways; they will value things that are considered simple by those imprisoned to value the things of this world…a world whose ways that God said His Ways are not a part of.
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.
