The Family of "Our FATHER and GOD"! -OR- religion's way?

The Family of "Our FATHER and GOD"!  -OR-  religion's way? (Ephesians 3:15)

Why would the children of Our FATHER and GOD, those "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth", create a religion? (Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 2:11, Philippians 3:20)

For "aliens and pilgrims" have "set their affections on things above", Heavenly things! And we have our portion !NOW! in and of "The Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH....... (Hebrews 11;13, I Peter 2:11, Colossians 1:1-3, Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:19)

Family -or- religion's way? (Ephesian 3:15)

"Choose you this day"!

And what of the numerous and varied religions?

Sadly, history has revealed, and yet reveals that multiplied billions have been killed and enslaved (in physical chains at times, yet primarily in the chains of strong delusion that are the theo'ry'logical doctrinal heresies of men) in the name of the god[s] of this, or that, religion!

Proving the fruit of death and enslavement are bore of religion's way,
For life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play!

And that is but one of a multitude of reasons why "The Way of TRUTH is evil spoken of", and especially so because of those religion's that declare that they are "biblically" based! (II Peter 2:1-3)

Pagan catholicism, her multitude (more than 30,000 sects) of harlot christian ('jesus') daughters, all muslim sects, and the many judaic systems of this day, all propagate lies, delusion, deception, confusion and every evil work!

"Come out from among them and be separate!" (II Corinthians 6:17)

However, 'religion' and 'government" were, and are yet needful for the natural man! Those "disobedient and gainsaying (contradicting and opposing GOD) people" who are "stiff-necked and uncircumcised of heart and ears"! (Romans 10:21, Acts 7:51, Exodus 32:9)

Were and are yet needful for those who would rather have a man(liken unto Moses) speak to them than Our FATHER and GOD, and those who would rather have a man(liken unto Saul) rule over them than Our FATHER and GOD...... (Exodus 20:18-19, I Samuel 8:19-20)

i believe the first step in REALizing what 'religion' is, comes when one Truly understands the testimony in James 1:27, "Pure religion and undefiled before Our FATHER and GOD is this, to visit the fatherless (those who have no relationship with Our FATHER and GOD) and widows (those whose bridegroom has not risen from among the dead) in their affliction, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the world"!

For James 1:27 rightly Spiritually discerned, reveals not a system, but The Active Faith of those who, in TRUTH, have been "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! Those "sons of Our FATHER and GOD" who have their portion !NOW! in HIS Family, of "WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"....... (II Thessalonians 2:10-12, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, I John 3:1-2, Philippians 2:15, Ephesians 3:15)

"A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH! (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:19)

Simply, ALL other 'religion' IS "IMPURE and DEFILED"!

And it needs be REALized that "atheism" is a religion as well, for 'atheists' see their version of a 'god("I", ego, id, self, pride)' each and every time they view their reflected "image"!

Yet, "Our FATHER and GOD", thankfully HE is Merciful! (Romans 9:16)

So repentance and regeneration ("Born Again", New Life) can be experienced by those who have, or who will receive "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life....... (John 3:3,7; I Peter 1:23, II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

And liken unto The Messiah, those who receive "a love of The TRUTH" will also REALize, "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 9:4; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14) 

And as The Messiah so also will His brethren seek and desire above all else: 

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

For they will REALize evermore, that "Our FATHER and GOD", HE knows what is best for HIS children! 

So it is, we "cry unto HIM day and night"....... (Luke 18:7)


HE DID!       and HE does.......

And HIS Faithful children?

Do not The Faithful brethren of The Messiah seek and desire to do both "The Will and Good Pleasure of Our FATHER and GOD"? (Philippians 2:13)

And does not "Our FATHER and GOD", HE WHO IS ALIVE, yet commune with HIS Faithful children?

And it needs be REALized that NEW "Jerusalem which IS above, IS free, and IS !NOW! the mother of us all (sons of Our FATHER and GOD)"! (Galatians  4:26)

So why would The Faithful create a religion?

Are not brothers and sisters (Yet in SPIRIT all are brethren!) family? (Galatians 3:28)

And do not The Faithful brothers and sisters of The Messiah have their portion !NOW! in The Family of "Our FATHER and GOD"? (Ephesians 3:15, Galatians 6:10)

Most certainly!

For The Faithful brethren of The Messiah are the children of "Our FATHER and GOD", "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"! (Hebrews 2:11, Philippians 2:15, I John 3:1, Ephesians 3:15)

And so it is that we choose to remain but "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth", for we have REALized that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven"! (I Peter 2:11, Hebrews 11:13, Philippians 3:20)

So why would "aliens and pilgrims" create a religion, or "love this world and/or it's things"? (I Peter 2:11, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4)

Why would we love our own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life in this evil world? Especially when it is promised that "whoever loves his life in this world will lose it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it unto Life Eternal"? (I John 2:15-17, John 12:25)

And so it is that we continue to sound The Call of "Our FATHER and GOD" as we exhort others to:

"Come Out of her(babel/dis-order/babylon\world\religion), MY people!"
(Revelations 18:4)

"Come Out" of that which is of this evil world and/or religion's way!

Be of those who seek to "forsake all," "Yes! and their own life also", 
just as The Messiah did! (Luke 14:33)

Be of those who tarry in, yet are not friends of, this evil world!
(John 7:7; 15:19; 17:14, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4)

Be of those "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth" who have REALized that their "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven", and that soon, and very soon, we will be taken Home, Home at last! (I Peter 2:11, Hebrews 11:13, Philippians 3:20, John 14:2-3)

Till then:

We REALize evermore how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we Truly are, and so it is we "cry unto HIM day and night"....... (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 18:7)

Sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:


HE DID!       and HE does.......

So Thankfully "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17;5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)

I try not to let human religion distract me from understanding an experiencing God's greatness and goodness. We read in 21st Century Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, "Jesus’ earthly cup of bitterness was drained to the dregs. He had only a few unpretentious friends stay by his side. The religion of these spiritual friends was something more than a name...The supremacy of Spirit was the foundation on which Jesus built, and his exceptional standard of living points to the religion of Love." Thanks for you thought provoking post.

i appreciate your taking the time to comment.

However, "religion of Love"?

Simply, "religion is is the way of this wicked, evil world"!

And religion was needful, and is yet needful for "disobedient and gainsaying(covetous) people" "uncircumcised of heart and ears" who would rather have a person than "Our Father and GOD" speak to them, and would rather have a person than "Our Father and GOD" rule over them!

And TRUTH IS, apart from The TRUTH, love remains but a four letter "imag"ined word of ones own fleshly mind!

The Messiah revealed the Love He had for the religious ones:

"Come Out from among them and be separate!"

Hope IS there would be those who would heed the call, and seek and desire to have their portion with The Messiah in The Family of "Our Father and GOD"!

Set your affections on Heavenly things and no longer be of those "whose god is their bellies, and whose glory is in their shame, for they remain earthly minded"!

Father Help! and HE does.......
