We are born into this world. Based on the original sin that was committed in the Garden of Eden, by Adam and Eve, we are born with a sin stained human nature. God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) said that His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them. So how do we unshackle ourselves from the world’s ways? It is by going through a painful life experience (a moment where all human logic was not fruitful in getting one out of that painful experience), so that a man or a woman can, for a moment, break away from the ways of this world. It is within these moments, it decides whether one is destined for the Eternal Kingdom or not. How? Based on where the man or woman turns to, in these very moments, to cope with the painful, possibly life changing experience. By turning to Him, He gives us the strength to endure through the Refiner’s Fire…and conquering the tests of Evil. Evil’s plan by testing us, through earthly measures, is to discourage a man or woman who dedicated their soul to the Eternal Kingdom of God, away from Him and His Divine Laws of Love, which consist of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. Evil wants to convince you that you should have a stressfree life, without trials; and to give in to your sin stained Adam nature. Though it may appear, to a person that does not know the Divine Father of Creation, that such a person is unnecessarily suffering on the outside…on the inside, such a soul is becoming “born again”, being refined back to the purity that Mankind was originally created to be. Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) showed us through His Death on the Cross at Calvary, that He conquered death and Evil,through this one act, in fulfilling God, the Father of Creation’s Plan to once and for all rid all evil from His Creation. Through the proof of this one act, God showed His Unconditional Love for Mankind, and Evil will try to manipulate this one fact, to make Mankind to think otherwise. If we go on the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, we will encounter many earthly trials, but only to achieve eternity, in the process, through the gift of Faith, through which God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) grants to His Faithful Children. This is the promise that was made through the Death of Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) . For in 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 , it states:
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
It is through our spirits conquering our earthly troubles, that we use our victories as testimonies to God’s Eternal Power and Love, towards us as Mankind. It is through this life changing earthly troubles that our spirits change from our sin stained, human nature, which is displeasing in the Eyes of God. We become more convicted in the Power of God, the Father…and see the limitations to human and earthly logic, to which evil wants to shackle Mankind to…and restrict its exposure to the great power of God, the Father of Creation. But those who know of Jesus Christ’s Commission, in His Death on the Cross, will have their spirits shine so brightly in the darkness of this world, that even evil can not deny God’s work in the transformation of such a soul. And such a soul will remind evil of what it could never have again…access to God’s Eternal Throne Room. If Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) was not exempt from earthly troubles and trials, what makes us think that we can gain entrance into the Eternal Kingdom without so…and still reflecting the Unconditional Love that is a part of God’s Divine Laws of Love. God, the Father of Creation, (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) through the Life that Jesus Christ led on this earth, understands the trials that evil puts us through, and how much evil wants to throw us off the path to the Eternal Kingdom, and depend on what the sin stained human nature tells the earthly body to feel. But again, God has the confidence in His Truth prevailing, for those of whom have understood Jesus Christ’s Commission on the Cross, and have had revealed to them, a segment of His Wisdom about the Eternal Kingdom. We see again in 2 Corinthians 4:1-6:
Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
This clearly states that not only is God confident in His Truth prevailing, but those who chose to “take up their Cross” and following in the same path that Jesus Christ went before them, all those that decide to rely on God during their earthly troubles, and take them on, willingly, will have the same confidence in His Truth. The life changing painful event, will decide if someone breaks away from earthly logic that evil wants to shackle us to, or if they turn to Divine Logic during earthly trials and troubles (which does not require any sorcery or magic)…resulting, little by little, in breaking away from the world’s way, and experiencing God’s Strength and power in their life. Coming to such a philosophy for one’s life, is not for the weak hearted…or a soul that is weak to the Adam Nature, which is sin stained. It is for the strong, who experience the supernatural strength of God, the Father of Creation….in facing the hard times. It requires death to the earthly mind and heart that can shackle us to the world, on a daily basis; and if not surrendered to the Will of God, can hinder us from receiving God’s tiny portion to His Wisdom. In 2 Corinthians 4: 7-15:
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
Without a testimony to God’s Strength, into becoming our own personal strength in conquering an earthly trial, it will be hard to do a ministry to convert souls for God’s Eternal Kingdom, when that conviction of personally experiencing the power of God’s Love is not there. Souls can pick up on that rather immediately. There can be that lack of empathy by such people….and a word of God, that is being preached without fully understanding the depths of God’s Strength, will be sensed, even by the most sensitive of souls, whether on the path to the Eternal Kingdom or not. Though by not the same caliber in earthly suffering as Jesus Christ, we have understood our own portion of the Cross, with the life circumstances that God has given us. And the closer we get in our paths…the more trials we will face, because evil is working that much harder to take you away from the Path to the Eternal Kingdom. It is not done with just one event…it is a lifelong process.
People who ask for earthly evidence for an Unseen God, does not understand the meaning of Faith then. There is proof everywhere in our daily lives, of His Existence. It just may not be in the form that we (with our limited and restricted human logic and nature) expect it. God does not define Himself, or His Ways by the ways of His Creations. The Creator has never done that. It is not in grandiose earthly ways either, where He announces where He is applying His Power. He is God; He does not need to do that….but in the faithful everyday things…that shows His Loyalty to us…which demonstrates His Patience and Unconditional Love for us. It is up to us to choose with our freewill, to see it for ourselves. We can only see it if we chose to…and through the gift of faith, through which only God, Himself, can offer to an individual. Through the pain, perservere, and rely on the Strength to which was provided by the blood shed on the Cross, at Calvalry, by Jesus Christ. Perservere, despite what your human logic may say…Divine logic always trumps all.
Time for that will run out some day….
