Following God’s Will At All Costs, Even If It Means To Lay At The Feet Of Your Enemy: The Holy Spirit Will Give You the Victory
My Spiritual Mentor and I had a conversation that was a much needed reminder. It is funny how God makes sure that we hear a message that He wants us to hear, as those who choose to follow the Path towards His Kingdom. With the nudgings of the Holy Spirit we are reminded of God’s Divine Laws of Love, and how those of us who are called to the Path are required to take the “narrow path”.
The Narrow Path requires us to walk through the fire. It requires us to be in earthly circumstances that are uncomfortable. It wil.l also require for us to be put into the paths of those that will mock us, ridicule us, insult us to the point of even demeaning us, but it does not matter. If it is a God given circumstance, then we are required to go through it. However, asking God for the strength to overcome and bear those crosses. It could be for a moment’s time, or for decades at a time. We, as God’s Children, are required to undergo the Refiner’s Fire, in order to rid ourselves of the sinful human nature, and to return back to the greatness that God created for humanity to be, as His Most Prized Creations.
God has given Satan and his evil dominion over this realm. READ THIS AGAIN. Satan was GIVEN authority of the earth by God, the Father of Creation. Satan can not do whatever he wants without God’s Permission. He can not do anything on his own. Just look at the Scriptures. Look at the story of the Prophet Job, and even Jesus Christ’s temptation in the wilderness. We should always be aware that God, the Father of Creation has His Hand over everything that happens to His Creations. So in essence, yes, He does allow for evil to exist, in order to see who will CHOOSE to follow His Divine Laws of Love, and who will not.
You see God, the Father, is so pure, He can not stand one bit of rebellion or impurity in His sight. He gives us the opportunity to change until our very last breath on this earth, to make the changes of heart, mind, body, and soul. We are born as sinners. This is the realization that we have to make. As a result, it is more natural for us to rebel against God, and His Divine Laws of Love, rather than to conform to them. It is more natural for us to be evil, than to be good. However, those of us that decide to walk the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, fight the battle everyday, to go against what naturally comes to us, and that is to violate the Divine Laws of Love, for the sake of animalistic survival in a world that was given dominion to evil and its ways. It was done in order to separate the weeds from the crops…..the good out of the evil. But God, loves Humanity so much as to give the opportunity to fix ourselves….to recognize His Love for us….to become convicted of this love, to the point of death of our earthly bodies to show that we believe in His Divine Laws of Love.
We must devoid ourselves of all pride. Afterall, this is what made God, the Father of Creation, kick out Lucifer (who later became Satan out of his revenge towards God, the Father of Creation, for doing so) and 1/3 of the army of angels from His Throne Room. Pride, it is the hardest sin to get rid of for some reason. I guess that shows me how prone we are to evil, and its ways. That is how much Satan and his demons have tried to confuse us a Humanity as to what are the ways of God, the Father of Creation, and what ways are not.
Nonetheless, Jesus Christ has said, “Seek, and you shall find.” It through faithful seeking, even during moments of trials, that God reads the innermost intentions of the mind, body, and soul of someone, to see if they are worthy to be given the gift of faith, and have worthy enough ground for the Holy Spirit to dwell. These are not things that can be earned….it is whether God, the Father, sees something in us, that is worthy of Him. His Ways do not conform to the ways of this world, therefore, only HE can SEE this; not anyone else.
However, we must also know that because Lucifer (who is now Satan) and his fellow fallen ones, were forever kicked out of the Throne Room of God, the Father of Creation, he will stop at nothing in order to keep you out of the Throne, with him. Since Satan is given dominion over the earth, he can control whatever the 5 senses can see, hear, smell, taste, and touch with the human body. That is why God, asks of us as to how strong our faith in Him is. Are we truly willing to take on the the life that our Savior Jesus Christ gave us as an Example to follow, to the point of death to the human body. And for whomever God sees potential in to follow the path to His Eternal Kingdom, He tests…..He refines.
We have to give in to the Holy Spirit, and God’s Will. As Christ has taught us in the Lord’s Prayer, we must wholeheartedly believe in the verse, “Thy Kingdom Come….Thy Will Be Done…..On Earth, as it is in Heaven.” It is about living God’s Divine Laws of Love, which are the ways of Heaven, on Earth. This is the Will of God, the Father, and His Kingdom.
This is why God, the Father states that many may be called, but few will enter. This is why God, the Father states that pathway is narrow, and few will travel it. The path is not easy, and if it was then more people, if not everyone will travel it. We have to love God, and His Divine Laws of Love that much, to the point of dying for them. This is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life, and Death on the Cross. Christ was persecuted since the time He was conceived in Mary’s Womb, convicted of a crime that He did not commit, and died the death sentence of a criminal. He lived as a pauper while he roamed around, without a dime to his name, or a home to lay His Head. We must not concern ourselves by those who do ill will to us, but we must put more focus on those things that concern us with the Divine Laws of Love. This was God’s Will of His Earthly Life, as the Son of God. We too, must follow follow God’s Will to the point of no matter what the earthly circumstances may dictate, we have to endure till our last breath.
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.
God, help me today;
To trust in you, through out my long days.
I, like so man, so easily fall;
To the temptations that evil sets, and from off your path, I stumble and fall.
For through Jesus Christ, you showed all of Mankind;
That we no longer to the Devil, must we be chained and bound.
Through Jesus Christ dying on Calvary’s Cross;
Father, you showed all of humanity, that you were not willing to evil, make us a loss.
You gave Your Son, as an example for Mankind to be;
In You to trust wholeheartedly, despite the chaos in this world instilling fear in us to flee…
Christ had said that in order to enter Your Throne Room, we would be required to walk;
A path less travelled, and by many will not travel or about it even talk.
God, pursues humanity…longing for us to be;
Uniting with Him, in His Eternal Paradise to exist…to see.
To trust in His Divine Laws Love;
Which rule and reign, and conquer all from Up Above.
“In God I Trust” should be our mantra…our driving force;
Knowing that Divinity is the winning…eternal Source.
For those who were given the Gift of the Holy Spirit to guide their souls;
Will having the eternal struggle, with reaching God’s Throne Room as their goal.
A life that conforms to the divine laws of love, will see what is beyond the ways of this world, and the value each thing has in the Eyes of God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah). This is what Jesus Christ, (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) showed us through His Earthly Life and Death on the Cross. As the years go by, we see that rather than consulting Divinity for what we do in life, we consult the impulsivity of the emotions of the human heart, and as a result, no longer using the human mind and freewill, to seek the counsel of Divinity. This ends up in us depending on the lability of the senses of the human heart, rather than what is felt by the conscience that is guided by a Divine Force, which is Omnipresent. When we seek a life in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love, we will see that despite what the world around us may appear as, we see that God protects His Chosen Children, from His Eternal Wrath.
Evil’s biggest deception is promoting love solely as a feeling. A feeling that will make you feel so great and high, like a dopamine high to life, and to all things that give you this “good feeling”. However, if we look beneath the surface of such actions, we see that these moments of “love” truly bring TEMPORARY happiness. Not to mention, anything done out of emotion, can not be controlled, and succumb to the lack of control to which Satan can and wants to control. According to Divinity, he states that:
When we look at what is considered right and wrong in this world, we see that the world philosophy has become to conform to a way of life that abides by the philosophy of the animals in the wild of “Survival of the Fittest”. Evil wants to confuse humanity and even bring them as far away from the the greatness the God, the Father of Creation, had originally created for His Most Prized Creations to be. We are to love all of God’s Creations, however, in the scheme of things, Human beings, because of their freewill has dominion over all. This freewill is only given to humanity, and those who seek a life in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love, willfully choose to seek them. God knows that evil makes it very confusing and difficult for humanity to know what is in accordance to the ways of the Heavenly Kingdom, and those which are in accordance to Eternal Damnation. However, it is through the gift of faith, through which with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, each soul that seeks the ways of the Divine Laws of Love, through freewill, will be used to get back on track towards the path that conforms to the Divine Laws of Love.
As Jesus Christ showed us, a life that conforms to the Divine Laws of Love, are ways that are devoid of the self, which are selfless in nature. So, immediately, we see that ways that give us that “high” are against the Divine Laws of Love. The purity of the kind of love seen and demonstrated by Divinity, does try to accomedate, is flexible, and even loves unconditionally, to the point of death to their own earthly body and detriment. This comes from the conviction of one’s own belief in the ways of the Divine Laws of Love, to which Jesus Christ demonstrated through His Own Earthly Life. At the same time, the flexibility and accomedation does not occur to the point of compromising one’s own soul, in having the Holy Spirit to leave from it, and no longer guide it. If this does happen it is out of the freewill of the person to go against the Holy Spirit, to which Jesus Christ has said, is a sin…the only sin, to which He can not forgive or defend before God, the Father of Creation’s Throne.
Evil will try to make a soul inspired by the Divine Laws of Love, to feel guilty by saying that they are intolerant to its selfish ways. The intention is to make you so exhausted in leading a life in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love, which will require one to be one amongst the few. Many will follow evil’s ways because of its temporary bouts of feeling “high” or “conditionally in love”, and will fail to have the foresight to see the plans of deception from the evil one. So it is important to stay on the course, and to pray for guidance every night for you and your loved ones. They will tell you to accept them for all of their flaws, to which they refuse to change from, despite breaking the Divine Laws of Love, while possessing such flaws. They will tell you to endure the mistreatment that evil will put them through, instead of walking away, because evil wants your soul, to destroy, not to preserve.
We must continue to watch over our souls, in order to prevent evil from taking over. It is important to spend some Quiet Time with God, the Father of Creation, so that He can help you discern the deception of evil.
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.
As days goes by, we see how things are beginning to go further away from the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) has created for humanity to be. We see, as each day goes by, we see how fewer and fewer people know what God’s Divine Laws of Love are…or even know the definitions of things like Unconditional Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy.
Humanity and the biology to which God had originally created Mankind to possess, is what gave humanity its connection to the Divine Father of Creation. This is what gives humanity the attributes of the Divine Laws of Love, which are ways of the Eternal Kingdom. Unconditional Love, which is the very love that Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) showed us on the Cross, at Calvary, is only the attribute that God, Himself showed that is the pathway….to the gates of His Eternal Kingdom. It is a love that is selfless, sacrificial, and even boundless. It doesn’t “look out for the self”…but gives endlessly until it hurts. A human being that knows of God’s Divine Laws of Love understands that the Eternal Kingdom of God is the ultimate destination, and that the pathway to His Eternal Kingdom, will require for us to go through the anguish, and trials through which Satan uses in order to take those bound on this path to the Eternal Kingdom…off of the path. Did not Jesus Christ shows us this through His Own Life? Did He not leave us with the Life Example that God’s Divine Laws of Love, go against the grain of the ways of this world? Does not Scripture tell us that God’s Ways do not conform to the ways of this world? We should always keep in mind, that Unconditional Love in its truest form….and loyalty to God, the Father of Creation, demonstrates a SELFLESS Love.
We must remember that God reestablished His Pathway to Humanity through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, His Son, on that day, on the Cross at Calvary. It is so important to understand what Jesus Christ did on the Cross, and what He showed Humanity while He roamed on this earth, with His Life. We must keep in mind, that Jesus showed us that in our Prayer Closets, we have our direct communication back to God, the Father of Creation. If we look through out history, those that have enlightened by God, the Father of Creation all led their lives in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love….and universally led their lives in the same way. God’s inspires, and enlightens , those that seek Him, in the same exact way. This is why I believe, love if it comes with the inspiration of God’s Divine Laws of Love, will be expressed in a uniform manner….it is unmistakeable…..and undeniable. Never mistake that of God. This is why He says that His People will know that their lives here, are simply a pitstop…and that they should become “passersby”, showing His Divine Laws of Love in all those that they encounter in their earthly lives; and their final destination is to the ETERNAL Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation. We must understand, that God says His Ways are beyond the ways of this world…this is why there are fewer and fewer people recognizing and living by the Divine Laws of Love (ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy). It is all about the self these days. If we have dedicated our lives and our souls, towards pursuing the Eternal Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation, we must recognize that we are following the ways of a God, who says that His Ways are beyond the ways of this world. He also says in Scripture that “Those that are first, will be last…and those that are last on this earth, will be first…” Did not Jesus Christ, show us this through His Own Life, and Death?
Keep up the fight of faith….because God the Father of Creation sees all; and one day for all the injustices done by those that are lost, and bring them to God’s Children for following His Divine Laws of Love, will bow down to Jesus Christ His Son……the trials and the anguish are required to unbind our earthly selves from the ways of this world, to which God has said His Ways…His Divine Laws of Love, are not a part of. This is what Jesus Christ demonstrated through His Own Life. He showed us to uphold God’s Divine Laws of Love (ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy) should be upheld at all costs….even if it means death to the earthly body.
What may be considered of value on this earth, may not be of value in the Eternal Kingdom of God. Be mindful as you live each day, of the ways of the Eternal Kingdom; ways that are in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love (ways of Unconditional Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy.) God says His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them. Jesus Christ, demonstrated how much God meant this, as God’s Son, by taking on the earthly titles of what was considered the lowest of the low, on this earth while He roamed it…..
