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.
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.
We must remember that no matter how far we may have roamed off of the path, once someone is called to seek the Kingdom of God, and He has revealed the Ways to His Kingdom to you, God, will always nudge the Holy Spirit to nudge you to come back. And those that have once walked in the presence of the Holy Spirit and God, the Father, will see the difference in walking towards the Kingdom, and walking away from the path to the Eternal Kingdom. I, personally, have seen this in my life. As human beings, our biggest flaws are pride and complacency. As Christians, it is so easy for us to get so comfortable in our spiritual lives, because things in our lives are going really well, without any trials or hardships. These are the times that Satan and his demons find as the most opportune times to strike against God’s Children. And remember, Satan and his demons can not do anything to you without God’s permission. These trials are brought into our lives for different reasons on each side. As we look to the Book of Job, Satan wanted to prove God wrong by saying that Job’s Faithfulness is only in his good times in his life. Job was very prosperous in the earthly sense. God allowed the test, to show His Confidence in Job’s Faithfulness, by knowing the purity of his heart.
What we must remember as servants of God, is that God is faithful to His Children, and never give up on them. He sees what no human eye sees, what no human ear hears, what no human can smell, taste and feel…he knows the purity of one’s heart and soul. At the same time, God knows the weakness of the human heart and mind. This is why He asks us to seek the Kingdom of God, through the Guidance of the Holy Spirit. This is one way that He knows He can still save a soul that has been lost to the world and its ways, because once He has called, He gives us the choice to come back, through the wooing of the Holy Spirit. It does require prayer and meditation to God the Father of Creation, and allowing your soul and heart to dwell and depend on the Presence of the Holy Spirit. This is what Jesus Christ was able to reestablish with His Death on the Cross. To create a bridge between the earthly and spiritual heavenly realms. As our Shepard, Jesus Christ, guided us and showed us what is expected in the earthly sense, by God the Father of Creation. Prayer is the biggest part of this. Even in moments of the hustle and bustle of this world, trials in the worldly sense, and even in the silence of our rooms….we are expected to go to our prayer closets, and come into the presence of the Holy Spirit. This is what Jesus Christ showed us in His Life and Death.
God gives us ample time and opportunity to come back to Him…till the very last breath in our earthly bodies. He sees the purity of the hearts that seek Him, and He lets them know that He sees their purity in their love for Him, and His Kingdom’s Ways. These people are constantly confessing to the ways that they fall short to the ways of His Kingdom. These people are devoid of pride in any way. They are also not swayed by the ways of this world. At the same time, God also does expect us to go astray, but He anticipates those that are pure in heart to come back and confess to Him. He gives us this choice everyday. He does not want people who feel entitled or does not force anyone to follow His Kingdom’s Ways, but wants those that CHOOSE to do so…and these are ways of SELFLESS, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, NONVIOLENCE, and FORGIVENESS.
For me, when I first began my walk almost 20 years ago, I thought that it would be very hard to get to this point in my spiritual life. I have been through many trials, and have witnessed many injustices….I have seen how people have seen my life and say God is not in my life because of the many trial that I have endured in the earthly sense. But I have never felt more of God’s Presence in my Life for the very same reason that people say that they feel He is not. And it is through these trials, that we break away from the ways of this World, and follow the ways to His Eternal Kingdom, which are the ways that I have listed above in CAPITAL LETTERS. We are different because of the wisdom of what God reveals to us through earthly trials, that make us stand out in this world, that make us different. God sees the transformation of the heart, that occurs in these times….the Refiner’s Fire that His Putting our human hearts through. Remember a prosperous earthly life, is not equivalent to a prosperous spiritual life If God says His Ways are not of this world, but are beyond them, that means His Ways do not conform to the ways of this world….but what He had shown us through His Son, Jesus Christ, in the earthly sense. A life that is inspired by God, the Father of Creation will have their words and actions match each other…not contrary to them.
If we look at any person that was considered devotee to the Kingdom of God, or are considered holy or are prophets….they did not have a prosperous earthly life, but many trials in their earthly life; or did not see the importance of earthly riches. God gave his strongest trials to those that He knew and saw that understood the ways of His Son, and why He died on the Cross at Calvary.
The thing that Satan and his demons fear most is God’s People remaining in groups and numbers. They know that when they are together, there is power in their fellowship and communion. As a result, evil will try to separate God’s People so that they will not know or even forget the strength that God has given through the Blood Covering provided by Jesus Christ. In fact, they will try to make you feel guilty for the fellowship and the communion. However, God’s People always know that in heart, mind, body, and soul, God’s People will never be separated, despite the earthly distance or circumstance. All it takes is the prayers of one of God’s People to pray over that of another.
Evil will try every tactic in trying to break up the unity within the Body of Christ. This may involve mimicking being a member of the Body of Christ, or even other deceiving tactics, such as pointing out a fault or an injustice that they have committed, that they will make you feel guilty for the wrong in calling them out. This is where the guidance of the Holy Spirit is what separates those that are bound towards the Eternal Kingdom, and those that are not.The Holy Spirit guides those that God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) has found worthy ground for It to dwell. It is a soul that is constantly repenting, and a soul that recognizes the Blood Covering that Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) provided at the Cross, on Calvary, and lives by the teaching that His Son left while He roamed this earth.
We must always be mindful and in constant prayer; this is our direct communication with the Father of Creation. Once we directly tap into the direct link that Jesus Christ reestablish with God, the Father; Evil will try everything possible to distract one of God’s Children from tapping into this spiritual weapon that Jesus Christ equipped us with, upon His Death on the Cross. Those who may seem weak in the earthly sense, are God’s Spiritual Warriors in the spiritual sense. The strength the Holy Spirit provides God’s Children with, can not be comprehended by evil or those that are bound by it.
So continuously fellowship with God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit….and you will not be swayed by the ways of the evil one and his demons. The Holy Spirit will help you to discern the deception of Evil…and guide you to the ways of God, the Father’s Eternal Kingdom, and invite you to sit in His Very Throne Room.
We must always keep in mind that we are spiritual beings, and because we are, it is pertinent to keep in close fellowship and communication with the Father of Creation, God Almighty. This is the very reason that we must become stronger in our faith, and become stronger as Prayer Warriors in Christ Jesus. In this season is when we remember the whole Commission of Jesus Christ, the only Begotten Son of God, the Father of Creation. He was God, born in the earthly flesh, in order to die, as the Sacrificial Lamb for the sake of saving Humanity. You see once Satan introduced the very idea of rebelling against God, in making Man to think that they can know as much as the Creator, to elevate themselves to the same level as He, or even plant the seed of doubt that the Creator can be prone to error…Humanity strayed away from the original greatness that it was meant to be. The direct communication that Adam and Eve had with God, the Father of Creation was destroyed upon Adam and Eve accepting Satan’s proposition. Jesus Christ, as the only Begotten Son of God, had to come in the flesh, in order to become the blood covering over the souls of humanity, to protect it.
Once one has understood what the Purpose of Jesus Christ and His Life is…then His Teachings will be very clear…”turning the other cheek”, though hard to do…will become a duty of the soul guided by the Holy Spirit. “Giving till it hurts” or “Giving up all riches to follow Him”…will become clear in the understanding of when He stated that “God says His Ways are not of this world, but are beyond them.” We will have the conviction of the “Comforter” with the individual trials that we face in our lives, and the testimonies through which God, the Father of Creation gives us through them, as a testimony of Him showing His Presence to us during these times; and how Jesus Christ’s Unconditional Love was shown on the Cross, at Calvary; that God’s Forgiveness is endless, giving us the chance to give up all earthly pride to repent of our sinful human nature and its flaws that rebelled against His Divine Laws of Love…to the point of giving us till our last breath within these earthly bodies, to purify the souls within.
Evil will try everything and anything to throw people off of the track of finding the path to the Eternal Kingdom, and discovering the meaning of the Divine Laws of Love. Why you may ask? Because evil knows once a soul discovers their meanings, and the Unconditional Love of God, the Father of Creation, that such souls will never fall for its deception, and will enter into the Eternal Kingdom, a place where Satan and its demons are no longer allowed to enter, and to experience that very same Unconditional Love and Bliss that can be experienced at the very Throne Room of God, the Father of Creation. And because of this, evil will try to get away as many souls as it can, away from God, the Father of Creation, as it to prove Him wrong for loving Humanity so unconditionally…and to never allow for Humanity to enter and experience what it can never experience for itself again.
How will evil prevent those that are bound on to the path? BY TRYING TO GET THE FIGHT OUT THOSE SOULS THAT GOD, THE FATHER OF CREATION HAS RECOGNIZED, THAT ARE BOUND TO HIS ETERNAL KINGDOM. This is done by manipulating the human 5 senses of seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching. Evil will use the weaknesses of people to enhance the manipulations…whether it be grudges, fears, hates, anger, sadness, depression, dislikes of a person, and multiply them x 1000000. It wants to keep prayers warriors so busy with their life circumstances that are physically…mentally…spiritually tired to tap into the direct communication that they have with God, the Father of Creation, in their Prayer Closets. With constant bombardment of earthly trials, evil wants to beat down a soul to the point of hopelessness, desperation, depression, addictions (as escapisms for such things) and saddness. Evil wants humanity to be so confused and tired, so that it will no longer know what is right and wrong…or whether something is good or evil….
For spiritual enlightenment, it requires Quiet Time in prayer and meditation, with God, the Father of Creation. It requires for a soul’s stillness, to yearn for the communication with its Creator. It is an investment of the soul, on a daily basis…so that the Divine Laws of Love take root within them. We must be fully aware of this in order to make time for the investment of strengthening our faith…our souls, so that we will not succumb to the tactics and deception of evil. We must make the time to spend with God, in our Prayer Closets. It is about the souls that are within humanity, not the earthly bodies that we have. We have spent so much time investing in the outer body that we have forgotten to invest in the inner appearance, for once Jesus Christ returns again to determine who deems worthy to enter into the Eternal Kingdom or not. The soul’s purity can only be viewed by God, the Father of Creation…so we must forge ahead my brothers and sisters, on our paths to the Eternal Kingdom. There is no room for those that have an ounce of rebellion or doubt in God, the Father of Creation’s Wisdom. God want wholehearted and true believers in His Divine Laws of Love…not those that are Lukewarm believers that want to half live in the world’s ways with the riches and the parameters that they want to define them; and just blindly going to and from a house of worship and going through the ceremonies to fulfill a religious need. He needs those that invested in learning about the ways of the Eternal Kingdom…about His Divine Laws of Love, to ways to which Jesus Christ showed while He roamed this earth.
I found this entry on the Christian Gazette. Absolutely wonderful piece. A MUST READ!
