Many people believe that there is no labor involved in a spiritual journey. Quite the contrary. There is a spiritual labor that comes along with it. Since we are born with a sinful human nature, this spiritual labor begins since the time we are infants. While Satan tries to deceive us into thinking that what we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch with our human senses within this earth, is all there is to our existence, those bound to the path to the Eternal Kingdom of God, will see that God’s Divine Laws of Love are not restricted by earthly parameters, but are beyond them. However, Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) had shown us through His Life Example, that God the Father of Creation, (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) and His Ways do not conform to the ways of this world, but are beyond them. The life that Jesus Christ demonstrated was very distinct in showing this, in every way since the time He was conceived in Mary’s Womb. Mary took on her purpose of being the earthly vessel to bring forth on to the earth, the Son of God, so that Humanity can have the choice of choosing to be a part of the Kingdom of God or not. By distracting us with earthly things that can be destroyed or taken away within an instant, Satan and his demonic angels would like to steer you away from investing in the things that last for eternity, such as purifying oneself from this sinful human nature to which he, himself introduced to Humanity. To those that have found this piece of knowledge within their own spiritual paths, will undergo such tough spiritual battles that without asking for Divine Strength, it is hard to endure, and easy to fall prey to Satan and his ways, which are ways that rebel against God, the Father of Creation, and His Divine Laws of Love (which are ways of Nonviolence, Forgiveness, and Mercy).
These tough battles are given with a double purpose. One, a Divine Purpose of ridding oneself from the sinful human nature. Two, a satanic purpose, of trying to break you away from the divine purpose that God, the Father of Creation has given all to have, upon being conceived in our mother’s wombs, and to permanently take us away from God, the Father of Creation. It is to deceive Humanity to thinking that if we are prosperous and problem free in the earthly sense, that we are found more in favor with God, the Father of Creation.
This is why Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, was sent to Earth, as the Life Example to which God, the Father of Creation expected as to the life Humanity should lead: devoid of earthly riches (or devoid of valuing earthly ways that violate the Divine Laws of Love of God, the Father of Creation’s Eternal Kingdom); to be servants of Man, and to be humble in the wisdom of knowing that because of the sinful human nature that we were born with, that we are so impure to be in the presence of God, the Father of Creation. It is through the awareness of such things, that we go through spiritual battles, to rid ourselves of the human nature that we are born with, and not accept them. We understand the original greatness that He created for us to be, and how much Satan has tried to soil us, from this greatness, through the distractions of the earth, and enhancing the sinful human nature. If there is a war inside of your soul and head, thank God for it. God, has not forsaken you, and given up on you. He still sees some worthy ground within your soul, for the Holy Spirit to dwell, and prick you to remind you that you were created for Divinity, whose ways are not of the world’s way but are of Heaven’s Ways.
This is why many do not understand the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He exemplified everything that was not what the Earth defines as “Divinity” or “Royalty”. The life He led was what God wanted for us as Humanity to see, as to how Divinity and the members of His Royal Court are supposed to conduct themselves, in ways that conform to the Divine Laws of Love of His Eternal Kingdom. To die of the ways of this world, and it is only until then one will find the ways of Divinity and the Eternal Kingdom. To be selfless to the point of being servants. To love unconditionally, even when that person does not love you. It is about knowing and relying on a Force that you know is Omnipresent, and through the Ultimate Sacrificial Lamb of Jesus Christ on the Cross at Calvary, we are given the choice and opportunity to tap into that Omnipresent Being through pray and supplication, with the purest of intentions that conform the Divine Laws of Love, and not out of the sinful human nature.
If Jesus Christ, Himself, was not exempt from trials on this earth, than who are we to think that we are any better than He, as the Son of God, to be exempt from them. He showed us that we are to undergo trials, hard trials, in order to break away from the ways of this world, and to rid ourselves from the sinful human nature. When we focus on God, the Father of Creation’s Ways, He will give us a peak through His Window, to see how He truly views the world, and the saddness He has of how Humanity as roamed off of the path of the original greatness that He originally created for it to be.
So be happy in your trials. It is because Satan feels threatened by your existence to his agenda, in deceiving Humanity into thinking that all the things of this earth is all there is to life. It also means that God has not given up on you, and that He has seen something worthy in you, as fertile ground for the Holy Spirit to dwell.
Be afraid when you get complacent with your life, and that you are not having spriritual or physical struggles. That you are no longer empathizing and sypathizing for others. Where unconditional love is defined in MANY ways, to accomedate the sinful human nature, where it is demonstrated in ways other than being selfless and sacrificial. Be afraid, where you have accepted your sinful human nature, because that means the Holy Spirit does not dwell within you, to show you the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation originally created for you to be. Be afraid, where you can steal or cheat from your neighbor, for personal earthly gain. Be afraid, when you can justify mistreatment of another fellow man, to hide your own sins. Be afraid, when you do not need to say “I’m sorry” or “I love you”, because that means you have chosen the same path of pride to God kicked Lucifer out of Heaven for, and transformed him into Satan. Be afraid, where you can say, “I do not need to change, and you have to love me for me…”. God will say, “You are born a sinner, and you are REQUIRED TO CHANGE, so that you can get rid of the impure, sinful human nature”. These are signs that God did not find worthy ground in you, for the Holy Spirit to dwell.
