What Differentiates Those That Are Heaven Bound and Those That Are Not: Holy Spirit Guided Souls

The Path to the Eternal Kingdom will be follow by few. Are you willing to take up your Cross, and take the road travelled by the few? Your radiance will shine so bright because of the light that the Holy Spirit brings to you, as a representative of a member of the Eternal Kingdom.

 

ROMANS 8:10-17

10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

 

As I study more and more about the Holy Trinity: 1) God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh); 2) the Son, Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay); 3) and the Holy Spirit; I come to the understanding that they are 3 different entities that serve the purpose of bringing Humanity back to God, Eternal Kingdom, by way of the Divine Laws of Love, which are ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. Out of the the 3 entities, there is this enigma behind the Holy Spirit. Very little is understood about it. However, the Holy Spirit is mentioned all through out the Holy Bible; and as you can see from the Scripture above, being guided by the Holy Spirit is key to entering the Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation; key in inherited the kinship with Jesus Christ; and even key to qualifying us for the Eternal Kingdom of God, is to have the Holy Spirit testify on our behalf by what the Spirit witnesses within our own soul and spirit. The very soul and spirit that God, the Father of Creation created within each human as they were conceived in their mother’s wombs, according to His Divine Plan in His Creation.

The enigma that surrounds the Holy Spirit, makes me believe that the purpose and the role of the Holy Spirit are only revealed to those that seek out the path to the Eternal Kingdom, and once God, the Father of Creation is first and foremost, and the meaning of what Jesus Christ did on the Cross on Calvary was understood by such a soul, the Holy Spirit will find worthy ground to take root within this soul, and guide this soul to the Kingdom. The soul has to be worthy to receive the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and the worthiness is only determined by God, the Father Himself. He can sees beyond what the human eyes, hears beyond what the human ears hears, and beyond what the human heart feels. He is the Creator, and He knows His Creation; however through the freewill that He has given us, He hopes that we will CHOOSE to be with Him and to dwell with Him, in His Eternal Kingdom. He does not pick and choose….He does not force His Way upon us. If we want to dwell in the Eternal Kingdom, we have to come and seek it, and He promises that you will find it through your seeking. However, such a soul should understand that the pathway to His Eternal Kingdom is travelled by very few. He requires such a soul to break away from the ways of this world, and the ways of the majority, because His Ways do not conform to the ways of His Creation, but are beyond them. He requires that this breaking away requires to undergo trials and tribulations, and even anguish, to which He showed us through Jesus Christ, His Son.  And once such a soul dedicates its purpose while they roam this earth to seeking the Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation, and die daily from the ways of this evil driven world, the Holy Spirit will find worthy ground within such a soul, in order to take root and dwell in. He will guide such a souls towards the path to the Eternal Kingdom.

The guidance of the Holy Spirit is so crucial to reaching Heaven, and the throne room of God. This is what Jesus Christ preach and lived by, as He roamed the earth. The Guidance of the Holy Spirit pricks our souls, each time we violate the Divine Laws of Love, in order to correct us, and make us worthy before God, the Father. It is this same Holy Spirit Guidance that tells us what is right and wrong; tells us when we should and should not do something; protects us from satan and demonic spirits; guides us to our victories, and carries us out of danger and death. It constantly polishes our souls from the rough diamonds that we are born as, to the radiant glittering lights that represent the Kingdom of God, the Father of Heaven, to become beacons of light as they walk on the Earth, as a testimony of God, the Father’s Existence in his world. For the existence of goodness and light in this world is not by our own achievements and doing on this earth, as satan and demonic spirits would lead Mankind to be, but through a Higher Force that originally made all of His Creations to be beacons of Light. Just look at nature, or even the wonderment of the animals in the wild. They never violate God’s Laws, yet nothing is more majestic or beautiful in the manmade world, as that which God created Himself.

The Holy Spirit guides such souls, which ways or who come from the same path to the Eternal Kingdom, which ways do not. the Holy Spirit, allows for such a soul to view the ways of this world, that are not part of the same path. The Holy Spirit reveals to such a soul bits and pieces to the righteous wisdom of the Eternal Kingdom. Such a soul is not confined by the restraints of earthly human logic; but can expand and beyond the boundaries of this earth, with complete reliance on Divine Guidance.

This worthiness is not something that earned in the earthly sense. It comes with a lot of anguish, and a lot of trials in the earthly sense. It is not by feeding the lusts and pleasures in the earthly sense. The Holy Spirit sees the fruit of such a soul. God sees worthiness from all walks of life, but with one common theme….those that do not rely on their spiritual success based on the earthly riches that they have, nor the earthly measures that will constitute one as a spiritual authority; or even earthly pleasures. In the past, God, has called a drunk (Noah), a prostitute (Mary Magdalene), an outcast (Zachias), many children (like Mary who bore Jesus Christ and David to conquer Goliath), he has called even the very old to bear into the world people like John the Baptist, the taxcollectors and fisherman, as well as physicians and soldiers. So you see, a soul that is rooted in the Holy Spirit will be led by Him to those that are called onto the same path. Such souls will know who is of their same path and those that are not. The Holy Spirit will also lead such souls to those that need to be brought on the path.

The Holy Spirit is what differentiates those that are bound to the path to the Eternal Kingdom, and those that are not. The Holy Spirit separates those that will inherit the kinship with Jesus Christ, in Our Father’s Eternal Kingdom. There is no mistake to this. Good deeds can be empty and futile, without the Holy Spirit. God sees the intention…if it is to be in obedience to the Divine Laws of Love or to fulfill a selfish pleasure that satifies the human flesh to make one “feel good about doing something good”.

 

The choice is yours….decide today whether you want to dwell in the Eternal Kingdom, or the falsehood of this world. The Holy Spirit will dwell within to guide you towards the Eternal path, or abandon you to fall to the vices of this world, to which evil will have their way with you. God, tells us each day that we have this choice; and that we must choose willingly what we desire. For the Holy Bible states in Romans 8:18-25:

 

 

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that[e] the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

A Daily Examination of the Conscience to Refine Your Conscienceness

Conscience

 

We are so quick to point out the flaws in others, yet do we see the flaws in ourselves? Often pride gets in the way of allowing us to see our own flaws. We are required to examine our conscience, in order to free ourselves from the shackles of evil. There is no compromise to this because evil will try to make its way, in any way it can, not only into your conscience, but also to take root in your soul, and grow like a weed, suffocating any light to which God, the Father of Creation, has seeded within. There is a constant refining of the soul that needs to be done, and it must become a daily routine for us to “clean out our closets”, so to speak. This is when the Holy Spirit can establish His Roots within us, and flourish through you, within this dark world, for the Eternal Kingdom.

I have learned that even the past events that we THINK we have gotten over or resolved in our lives, could have possibly made deep wounds within ourselves, that can give a foothold to Satan and his demons to slowly rot away at your soul, without recognizing it, and laying it at the feet of Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay), who fights on our behalf, against against such things, is the only way we can COMPLETELY HEAL the deep wounds. We must remember that God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) is pure love. What Jesus Christ did on the Cross at Calvary, as God in the flesh, was showing and becoming the purest form of unconditional love. So there is no room for any impurity within ourselves, when it comes to entering the Eternal Kingdom of Heaven. Because we are born with a sin stained human nature, which was conceived within Mankind at the time Adam and Eve decided to rebel against God’s command to them, by eating of the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, it is REQUIRED that we continuously examine our conscience for what we do in our lives. Our thoughts….our actions….our words. We are to humble ourselves to a God, who sees all, as an Omnipresent Being, and recognize what we do in violation of His Divine Laws of Love. We are all guilty of something. While we see 10 of our own flaws, God sees 100 x 100 more. Jesus Christ, saw something worthy in Mankind, that was worth dying for, on the Cross at Calvary. Through the perfection that He was while He roamed on this earth, by dying on the Cross, He covered us through the Blood He shed on that day, from evil.

We must remember that we, as Mankind, because of our sin stained human nature, are not worthy in being in the Presence of a Perfect God. Out of His Unconditional Love, He gives us the chance, everyday, to CHOOSE OUT OF OUR FREEWILL, to see Him in all. Otherwise, as being God, He could easily destroy all that directly violate His Divine Laws of Love, which are ways of Unconditional Love, Mercy, and Forgiveness. But all of this requires a humbling of ourselves…of ridding ourselves of any pride within…and to recognize when we ourselves are in direct violation of unconditional love. Examination of the conscience is not a one time deal….it is a lifelong process. It requires a changing of ourselves, to the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation, knew He created for us to be. We may realize this when we are young….or we may realize this, within our last breaths. Nonetheless, God judges based on a complete transformation of a heart and soul, to which He can only see as the Perfect Omnipresent Being that He is. It is nothing of the self….but being selfless in nature.

Jesus Christ requires for us to love all, unconditionally. He requires us to not fellowship with evil at the same time. This not only includes physically not associated with evil; but also dissociate from the very things that evil has creeped in within ourselves, through past pains, hurt, and anger. He requires us to take a way that is beyond the ways of this world (to which God clearly says that His Divine Ways do not conform to the ways of a world that asks us to give in to our sin stained human nature; but are Divine in Nature, and conform to the ways of the Heavenly realm). We are asked to cover those very areas in our lives by the precious blood of Jesus Christ, so that evil will not take a foothold within ourselves of such things, to give birth to deep wounds to anchor itself to. We should change at the same time by humbly offering those things at the feet of God, to provide His Strength to overcome them with unconditional love; instead of giving in to our sin stained human nature to give rise to personal anger, pain, and vengeance. We must realize the Power of God’s Unconditional Love. We take for granted of being in His Presence at this moment…we take for granted that we are not guaranteed to wake up the next day, it is only God’s decision for us to be able to do so. While we are so busy on focusing on the preservation our outer physical bodies; we are allowing for our souls and inner bodies to rot away, to which is the ONLY thing allowed to pass on to Eternity, whether it be destined to be damned or to be blessed to the heavenly realm. We are too busy nourishing the outer body…instead of “feeding the soul” within.

Examination of our conscience is a requirement so that we understand of the Existence of a Perfect God…and our imperfections. He gives us the choice, hoping that we will chose to live in ways of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, which is selfless in nature. This is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life, and Death on the Cross. Though having all of the power to strike down anyone that harmed Him or ridiculed or mocked Him….He did not. So we must practice “turning the other cheek” at all costs….because this is what God meant that “Love conquers all”….He sees all injustice done towards those who have taken these words and Jesus Christ’s Teachings to heart…and will get justice for them all, in the eternal realm, in a permanent way, for He is the only One who is allowed to take vengeance for His Children…and as the Creator, to destroy what is in direct violation of His Divine Laws of Love. Our human mind can not comprehend seeing the world beyond what we view with our 5 senses, but it does not mean that it does not exist. It only means that we rely on God, the Father of Creation, to show us through the Holy Spirit, as to seeing what is beyond the things of this world. The Holy Spirit guides those who examine their conscience everyday, to ways of life that are pleasing to God, the Father of Creation, and will lead them in ways the uniformly love, unconditionally…to uniformly forgive, unconditionally….and to uniformly give mercy…unconditionally. For the present form of the world today, is not because of God. It is our choice for allowing Evil to seep in that much within our conscience…within ourselves…to give in to our sin stained human nature in the form of the mortal sins of 1) Greed; 2) Gluttony; 3) Sloth; 4) Envy; 5) Wrath; 6) Pride; and 7) Lust. The more we understand this….the better off we will be in our Spiritual Enlightenment. Leading to the present condition of the world today…

We must not live for the ways of this World

 

As I meditate on the life of Jesus Christ; and see how those who have been inspired by His Life have translated that understanding, within their own lives; there is one resounding thought that comes into my mind:

“If God said, He is not of the ways of this world; then we, in our service to God, must serve the Father of Creation, in the same manner…with a heart that is not bound to the ways of this world.”

It is true, that we were all created for a purpose on this earth.  But why do we think of such grandiose ideas?  I think that is the earthly mentality that makes us think that way.  If you look at all those that have changed Mankind; their changes began with simple acts in their everyday lives, to which they attributed as their calling within their lives.  For instance, Mother Teresa felt that she needed to focus her ministry as a Nun, with the poor of India.  And she face a lot of roadblocks, in doing this.  However, it went to the point where she ended up , just walking away from the original convent that she originally belonged to, to pursue serving the poor on her own by walking in the streets everyday, to see how she can help them by preaching about God’s Love to them.   Mahatma Gandhi was a man that saw injustice of racial prejudice of the Indians in colonial India.  He began within his hometown; which eventually inspired others to do the same.  He saw that the injustice of modern slavery in his homeland needed to stop…not by fighting with weapons or by spewing insults.  But by questioning why certain things were being done in his homeland; and by not cooperating if things done were in violation of God’s Laws of Love.  It was the modern Nonviolence Movement.  He started as ONE MAN; whose one simple realization and the desire to stand up to a violation of God’s Love; inspired the 2nd largest democratic nation in the world, to gain their Independence from their British Colonial Rulers, by a means of Nonviolence.  And this is a nation that consisted of many different religious beliefs.  In fact, a nation that gave birth to all agnostic relgions on this earth, were able to stand as ONE, in total agreance to God’s Love being violated.  Such acts, when done in utter obedience to God, leave PERMANENT results for the betterment of Mankind.

GOD’S TRUTH NEEDS TO ONLY MAKES ITS MARK “ONCE”; AND IT WILL LEAVE ITS IMPRINT FOREVER.

It is being faithful in the everyday things, in how we serve God, that earns us favor in His Eyes.  By constantly being aware of Him and His Existence…as to what will and will not be pleasing in His Eyes.  The PR for ourselves, is not to MAN; but to the One who Created you, into being.  God sees what the world does not see; and that is the purity of the heart.  That only comes with unbinding your heart, in desiring the things of this world, and connecting it with God’s Divine Unconditional Love.  That is when the things of this world will no longer matter; and God Ways will anchor such a heart.  We start by being faithful in the everyday things within our lives.  Then the larger things will also fall in place.  God’s ways do not require monetary investment, that is an earthly means.  It requires the investment of the self.  God has already given you all of the tools you need to serve Him; we just need to be more conscience of them.

When we focus on the things of this world are not your focus, the ways of this world that try to hurt you, will not.  It might keep you back, or cause a temporary setback.  However, by going through Evil’s Trials of this Earth; you will only refine your heart, through a Refiner’s Fire. Bringing out the heart of diamond, that is grounded in God’s Love.
