Why "Free Will(Choice)"?

Apart from "free will (choice)" no one would come to REALize how "poor and needy" they truly are! (Psalms 70:5 ++)

And if there was no "free will (choice)" there would be no "brethren of The Messiah", only robotic like clones!

Yet those who seek and desire to be of The Messiah's brethren, will also REALize, just as The Messiah did, "I can do nothing of My own self"....... (John 5:30,19; 8:28-29)

Thankfully the fruit of "free will (choice)" does work in the hearts and minds of those who finally 'see' how "poor and needy" they truly are. For only then did we begin to truly seek and desire to follow The Messiah on "The Narrow Way" that is "The Way to The Truth of The Life"! (Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)

The Life as revealed in both The Teachings and The Life example of The Messiah....... (John 5:30,19; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)

And it is well to remember that The Messiah received both His Life and His Teachings from HE WHO IS "Our Father and GOD"! (John 3:34; 5:19,30,36; 12:49; 14:10,24, Romans 8:3, Isaiah 42:1)

Thankfully those who have REALized how "poor and needy" they truly are begin to "choose wisely"! For they also seek and desire that which The Messiah sought and desired above all else:

"Father, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42)

Father Help!       and HE does.......

Yet, Thankfully! "Our Father(Creator) and GOD", HE did not create robots!

However, "Our Father(Creator) and GOD", HE most certainly knows what is best for HIS Children......

Let HIM have HIS Way with you, "working in you both The Will (Desire) and The Doing of HIS Good Pleasure"! (Philippians 2:13)

Now for such to be "The 'I(ego,id,self,pride)' Must Die!

Yet, to live yet die seems an impossible task!
And so the need of Our Father to ask.......

Help me to "deny myself (die to "I",ego,id,self,pride)" Father! (Matthew 16:24)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

And as HE Helps, HE reveals evermore of "The Selfless One". (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)


The Messiah, "The Only Begotten Son of Our Father and GOD"! (I John 4:9)

He Who leads His brethren on that "Narrow Way" that is "The Way to The Truth of The Life"! (Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)

So it is His brethren will seek and desire that which The Messiah also sought and desired above all else:

"Father, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42)

Father Help!       and HE does.......

So Peace IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world, for "the WHOLE world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one"....... (John 7:7, I John 5:19, James 4:4)

Hey Francis,
Robert Begnaud here, I noticed your comments at Stand Up Ministry. I am not sure but we may have talked before, it may be possible that it didn't go well. Well that's where we are as a people. I have done a little reading of some of your blog and I think that maybe, just maybe, we should fellowship. You make me think that you are a true brother by some of what you say, I am not right all the time, but I just thought that I would let you know my passing thoughts as I read a few posts on your blog.

"maybe, just maybe, we should fellowship"?

"you make me think that you are a true brother by 'some' of what you say"?

Now i believe if i were to review every word i have posted @ A Simple and Spiritual Life blog, that i would change a word here and there, however, i also believe i have made it quite clear what i do believe.

Simply, religion is anti-messiah and of this wicked, evil world.......

And The Brethren of The Messiah have been commanded by Our Father to "Come Out of her, MY people", The Brethren of The Messiah are to "Come Out" of this world(babylon) and it's systems of religion.......

Now hope is we could "share those things we have seen(experienced) and heard(received") so that we might "have fellowship" indeed and Truth.......

As for our "talking before" we did have e-mail correspondence back in '06, and no it did not go as either one of us would have desired.

i am most certainly willing to share with you, however i believe if you are living a "life of ease midst physical comforts" and can not "see" that such a "life" is both in and of this world, then such sharing will more than likely be fruitless.

i want naught to do with those who have their portion with those who are destroying Creation(land, air, water, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which is Spirit(Truth, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Mercy, Grace, Faith, Wisdom,,etc.,).

Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(religion) that is of this world, for "the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one"....... francis

i am so confused. i stumbled upon these comments because you had commented on one of my blogs. (i was going through all my comments to delete spam comments ugh!)

1. I think Robert is trying to make peace with you here. He might have different beliefs or is from a different denomination, but you have no judgment as to if he is saved or not. If he is your brother in Christ, bear with him in reverence of Christ; and if he is not, you are need to sprinkle your conversations with some salt.

2. are you saying if a follower of Christ is not poor and needy then they are not true followers?

3. what do you mean you want nothing to do with those who are "destroying" Creation and perverting that which is Spirit?

Sorry, i know i am to approach you in person privately instead of posting this in public, but this is the only channel i can communicate with you. Since the Lord had me stumble upon this, well, then there's a divine reason.

1. i believe Robert is but another "american" christian and most certainly not a "stranger and pilgrim while on this earth". We had shared quite a bit in the past.
As The Messiah asked, "Who is my brother" so His answer remains, "those who know The Will of Our Father and do it"?

2. If one nas not "seen" how "poor and needy" they truly are, such a one is not following The Messiah.......

3. Do you wnat to have your portion with those who are destroying Creation and perverting that which is Spirit?

As for communing privately, you can send me an e-mail by clicking the E-Mail icon on my profile page.

Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that is of this world, for "the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one"....... francis

Why do you moderate your comments?

Seems as though there are those yet held captive by this world's systems of religion who believe foul language befitting a drunken sailor is a suitable comment.
