A portion of my testimony follows.......

Back in '91 i had been in "search of the church"(aka: ecclesia, which i now declare IS "The Family of Our FATHER and GOD") for almost 5 years, and had crisscrossed this place on earth they call the u.s.a. from Vermont to California and Washington to Florida.
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

And during that time i knew in my heart that "Our FATHER(CREATOR) and 
GOD(SPIRIT)" wanted me to give up my vocation(self-employed computer consultant, systems analyst) but i didn't know what i would, or could do, if i did quit. (John 20:17, Proverbs 3:5-6)

However, the experiences while on that journey revealed much and simplicity became a beacon for me. i had left most possessions (which actually possessed me) behind when i began my search in earnest, and i could load all my possessions into the back of a '76 ford courier pickup w/shell.


Then finally, in November of '91 while in Colorado, "i quit"!


It was then that i awoke from the "american dream" and said, "no more" to the

"american (worldly) way". (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4, II Corinthians 6:17, Revelations 18:4)

i had been a self-employed computer consultant/systems analyst(engineer) who designed, coded, and implemented custom financial and/or application software for companies that were using ibm system 32, 34, 36 and 38 business computers.

Yet Thankfully, i was empowered by The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and GOD to overcome all fear-filled doubting questions and say "No More! (John 20:17)

And Thankfully, by The Grace of Our FATHER and GOD, the "I(ego, id, self, pride)" in me no longer held me captive, for i had been bound in the chains of "strong delusion" that are forged by this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)!

(II Peter 3:18, II Thessalonians 2:10-12, John 7:7) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

At that time it had already been revealed that the "american dream" was just that, and that such should be rightly called "american greed" and/or "american delusion"!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-usa-christian-country-indeed.html

For it seemed most every "church/community/religion" propagated that delusional "american dream"! Sadly such but provides food for the fires that emanate from mankind's "imag"ination! (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/sadly-imagination-and-interesting-walk.html

And the bias and perversion in each and every translations of that which those of this world or religion's way call their 'bible' was being revealed during that time as well.

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/all-so-called-biblical-translations-are.html

Yet i had not yet REALized that Creation (air, water, land, vegetation, creatures)  was being destroyed and that which IS SPIRIT(TRUTH, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Faith, Grace, Wisdom,,,,,,, ALL that IS Truly GOOD) was being perverted by that which is of mankind's "imag"ination!  For such IS but a playground for the "devil", he who is "the god of this world" and "the father of lies"! (Revelations 11:18, Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5, 4:4, John 8:44, Ephesians 4:27, James 4:7) 

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/behold-world-is-coming-together-as-one.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-father-of-lies-has-made-his.html

The destruction of Creation, and perversion of that which IS SPIRIT, was revealed a few years later.  
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/07/simply-progress-so-called-is-destroying.html

When i was given The Grace to say "No More"and quit my only source of income , i believed in my heart that a simple and Spiritual Life would allow me to experience more, and would reveal more of that which Truly mattered. (II Peter 3:18)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-treasures-of-simple-and-spiritual.html

And thankfully after giving up my only source of income, and no longer having my portion in the ''american dream"; it was then that i was endued with power from on High over the fleshly desires that had kept me bound in the chains of "strong delusion"
that causes a soul to but serve time in the prison that is this world and/or religion's way in this day and age! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13) 

Yet i had already REALized that what Truly mattered was not material things, or that which is temporal, but what Truly mattered was that which IS SPIRIT and TRUTH! (John 6:63)  
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/09/if-we-live-in-spirit-let-us-also-walk.html

For it had been clearly revealed  that only that which IS SPIRIT is Real, and only that which is Truly Real will gender Eternal Life.......

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/what-to-do-where-to-go-how-to-cope.html

And January of '92 found me in Tennessee within a community of those who had come out of the amish yet retained their simplistic ways. And i began to learn what it was like to "cut wood and carry water", bathe once a week in a #10 metal tub, and 'survive' with no vehicle(i sold my Ford Courier pick-up), electricity, running water, phone, etc.......

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-simpler-life-becomes-more-life.html

A simple life indeed, and at times it seemed i was experiencing that "little house on the prairie", a tv show that i had appreciated when i was an "american" rather than an "alien and pilgrim while on the earth"!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/are-you-alien-and-pilgrim-while-on-earth.html

Had sold my vehicle, and sold or gave away many other things that i did not "need", which included the money of all that was sold and most all the money i had in hand.


And by March of '92 my "simple and Spiritual Life" journey had miraculously taken me to the Copper Canyon area of Old Mexico(such would be a testimony in and of itself).


For the first three months i worked washing dishes in a hostel type environment located in Creel, Chihuahua and then for about 15 months after that experience i lived in a shack with no plumbing, electric, or any other "thing" that would hinder my desire to live and experience evermore of "A simple and Spiritual Life".

And those experiences were a blessed time, indeed and TRUTH.


For the "Simple Life" was a great teacher and many lessons were learned.


Lessons that bore witness unto The TRUTH that speaks, "if you don't spend money you don't have to make it", "the simpler life becomes, the more Life becomes", "less is more and more is less", "most all of the things you possess, in TRUTH possess you";


"FATHER Help!"

"HE DID!       and HE does".......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/father-help-and-he-does.html

And during that time "The Light of TRUTH" began to reveal that, "the multitudes were but serving 'time' in the prison that is this world for money's sake", so that they might experience what they believe to be "ease of life"......

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-word-of-god-let-there-be-light.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

Which in TRUTH is the self ("I",ego,id,pride) life, which is no life at all!


And The TRUTH of "The WHOLE (not just a portion) world being under the control of the evil one" was evermore REALized! (I John 5:19; 2:15-17, John 7:7, James 4:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

Thankfully i did have a great natural teacher while in Mexico, and my experiences with that teacher (a burro named feliciano) taught me, "if there is a problem in The Life given me, "I" am the problem", and so it was that The TRUTH of "The "I(self,ego,id,pride)" Must Die!" was clearly manifest.......    
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

For "self("I", ego, id, pride)denial" IS needful for a soul to be One with The Creator (Our FATHER and GOD)! Such was clearly revealed in both The Life and The Teachings of HIS Son The Messiah, Who testified "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)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

And His brethren, can they do anything more?


The very breath(Spirit, air) we receive that is needful to sustain this natural life, reveals The TRUTH unto those who have received "a love of The TRUTH, so that they might be saved" from their own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life, and then be Truly "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

TRUTH IS! "You that are unable to do the least(breathing and breath {Spirit, air} are gifts that needs be received), why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:26)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html

And when a soul Truly REALizes how "poor and in need" of "Our FATHER" they Truly are! Only then is the soul renewed, enlivened, and a common union with The Creator 

(Our FATHER and GOD) REALized! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/our-father-and-god-he-yet-communes-with.html

FATHER Help!       


HE DID!       and HE does.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/my-prayer-father-help-and-he-does.html

No longer was it "I" will, but the cry of my heart, the cry of my soul was as it should be;

"FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

For TRUTH IS! "All things work together for The Good (not that all things are good or seem good at the time) for those who love GOD! For those souls who are the called in accordance with HIS Will and Good Pleasure"! (Romans 8:28, Philippians 2:13)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/08/all-things-work-together-for-good.html

That blessed time in the Copper Canyon area of Mexico revealed that to Truly "know", to Truly learn, is to "experience(see) and receive(hear)"! (I John 1:3)


Mere reading can muddy the waters, for such "learning" more often than not feeds mankind's "imag"ination. (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/sadly-imagination-and-interesting-walk.html

So it is that "knowledge falsely so-called" has become religion's way! (I Timothy 6:20)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/knowledge-falsely-so-called-i-timothy.html

Yet TRUTH IS! There IS One "Pure Religion and Undefiled"! (James 1:27)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

And rightfully Spiritually discerned James 1:27 reveals an Active Faith! 


"A Household of Faith"! Family, not a dead letter religion! (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 3:15; 2:19)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

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

And Yes! Atheism is a religion as well, for atheists see their version of a god each and every time they view their reflected "image".......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/03/atheists-so-called-are-some-of-most.html

Yet because of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters "The Way of TRUTH is evil spoken of"!  (II Peter 2:1-3)  
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/because-of-religions-way-way-of-truth.html

"Come out from among them(religion's way in this day and age) and be separate"! (II Corinthians 6:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

For the "self("I", ego, id, pride)life";  lies; mankind's "imag"ination; and religion's way, are the most powerful weapons used by "the god of this world"(he who is "the father of lies"), in his war against The Creator (Our FATHER and GOD) and HIS Creation! (II Corinthians 4:4, John 8:44, II Corinthians 10:4)

Such revelation led to great sadness.......

For soon it became apparent that mankind's "imag"ination was not only destroying Creation (air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) but was also perverting that which IS SPIRIT (TRUTH, Light, Life, Faith, Grace, Love, Peace, Hope,  Miracles, Mercy,,,,,,, ALL that is Truly GOOD)!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/07/simply-progress-so-called-is-destroying.html

And such destruction and perversion will continue until The End, when "time is no more"! And then Our FATHER and GOD "will destroy those who would destroy the earth"! (Revelations 10:6; 11:18d)  
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/07/simply-progress-so-called-is-destroying.html

So it is, that those who believe in and seek and desire The Will of The Creator (Our FATHER and GOD) are exhorted to "Cast down "imag"inations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of GOD", HE WHO IS Our FATHER and GOD, Creator of ALL(Messiah inclusive)! (II Corinthians 10:5, Genesis 1:3, John 20:17, Revelations 3:14, Colossians 1:15)


For "imag"ination is of the mind of man, and used of "the father of lies" to gender delusion, deception, destruction and every evil work! (John 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4, Romans 1:21)


And "the father of lies", delusion, deception, destruction and "every evil work" IS the devil, he who is "the god of this world", "the author of dis-order"! (John 8:44, II Timothy 3:18, James 3:16, II Corinthians 4:4, I Corinthians 14:33)


Once again: TRUTH IS! mankind's "imag"ination is the devil's playground!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/sadly-imagination-and-interesting-walk.html

And The Life, Real Life, Eternal Life is only REALized when The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT dwells within us, just as natural life is only realized as we receive of the breath(Spirit, air) that sustains this temporal life.


Yet unless a soul has received "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved", Eternal Life can not be! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html

And The Life, Life Eternal is not of the "imag"ination, for those who have received of The Life have not just read about The Creator (Our FATHER and GOD) and HIS Son The Messiah, they have "experienced The Messiah and The Power (Our FATHER and GOD) that raised Him from among the dead"....... (Philippians 3:10)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/miracles-faith-receiving-love-of-truth.html

And Thankfully this blog allows me to share that which i have "seen (experienced) and heard (received)" with others. (I John 1:3)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/05/a-testimony-concerning-religious.html

And for those who have REALized how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we Truly are, such sharing will be "Faith to Faith". (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Romans 1:17)

As we evermore sound and resound a Declaration of Dependence:

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-declaration-of-dependence.html

FATHER Help!    


HE DID!       and HE does.......

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/father-help-and-he-does.html

So while breath(Spirit, air) is, HOPE IS!


For TRUTH IS!       and Miracles do happen.......


Yes! Hope IS, however not for those who have their portion in and of this evil world and/or religion's way! (John 7:7; 12:25, James 1:27:4:4)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

Hope IS, yet not for that which is temporal........ (Colossians 1:5)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2010/10/hope-of-heaven-for-hope-which-is-laid.html

Hope IS, there would be those who would experience The Miracle that is receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self("I", ego, id, pride)life! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13) 

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html

For they will "Come Out" from among those who are destroying Creation(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which IS SPIRIT(TRUTH, Light, Life, Love, Hope, Mercy, Faith, Grace,Wisdom,,,,,, ALL that is Truly GOOD)!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/05/come-out-of-her-my-people.html

And Thankfully, they will experience "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding", in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith of James 1:27), for "the WHOLE (not just a portion) world is under the control of the evil one"....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 4:4; 1:27) 

Thankfully TRUTH IS!       a lie is not.......


Abide in The TRUTH.......


For TRUTH IS, The "I(id,ego,self,pride)" Must Die for The We to Be in The Family of GOD!


In as much as i can 'see',

That which is of the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" in me,

So it is i yearn, and to Our FATHER cry,
For deliverance from all that is of the "I".

The "I", born of "imag"ination and selfish desire,
As lust, greed, and pride, stoked a consuming fire!

A fire burning out of control, as "I" leads the way,
It's smoke concealing the fleshly mind that leads one astray.

Yet even in the smoke, searing heat, and blindness of 'sight',
Truth can pierce the blackness of darkness, revealing "The Light"!

And nothing can hide from "The Light", so "Light" reveals the "I",
Allowing one to "see" clearly, and clearly the "I" must die.

But to live, yet die, seems an impossible task,
And so we need of "Our FATHER", the impossible to ask.

Help me to "deny myself (die to "I", ego, id, self, pride)" FATHER!

And as HE Helps, HE reveals evermore of "The Selfless One".


The One who testified, "I can do nothing of My own self"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

The One Who leads His brethren on "The Narrow Way" that IS "The Way to The TRUTH of The Life"! (Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/because-of-pagan-catholicism-and-her.html

The One Who IS The Messiah, The Only Begotten Son of The ONE and ONLY TRUE LIVING GOD(SPIRIT) and FATHER(CREATOR) of ALL! (Matthew 16:16, John 3:18)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

The Messiah, "The Light of the world"! (John 1:1-12, 8:12, Genesis 1:3, Revelations 3:14)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-word-of-god-let-there-be-light.html

And as The Messiah desired above all else, so also will His brethren desire above all else, "FATHER, not my("I") will, But THY Will Be Done"....... (Luke 22:42)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

The poetic testimony i shared above was begun in Creel, Chih, Mexico in '92, a time when i sought to live and evermore experience a simple and Spiritual Life. Left Mexico in '93, yet i returned in '04.


Then on 1/26/05 the poem was completed, and 'completion' is near for each and every one of us.


And for "the poor and needy" son's of "Our FATHER and GOD", thankfully so. (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, I John 3:1-2, Philippians 2:15)

For "I" can't!

"Our FATHER", HE CAN!


And soon and very soon, HIS children are TRANSLATED!

"Corruptible to incorruptible" indeed and TRUTH....... (I Corinthians 15:53-54)

Home, Home at last....... (John 14:2-3)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/home-home-at-last-john-141-3.html

Forever free from the "I(ego, id, self, pride)".......

All Thanks and Praise Be Unto "Our FATHER and GOD"!

And while there is breath(Spirit, air), there is hope many will "see",
"see" the "I" for what it is, and then desire to be set free!

And The SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and GOD, and was in The Messiah, will "set you free, free indeed"! (John 8:32-36)

So while breath(Spirit, air) is, Hope IS!

For TRUTH IS!       and Miracles do happen.......

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/miracles-faith-receiving-love-of-truth.html

Hope is there would be those who experience The Miracle that is receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved", for they will "see" The Light that is The Messiah! The Light which clearly reveals that The Life is of The SPIRIT (not seen with the natural eye), and most certainly not of the flesh or fleshly mind ("I", ego, id, self, pride)!

Once Again, "unless one receives "a love of The TRUTH they can not be saved"! (II Thessalonian 2:10-13) 
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html

And those who have received "a love of The TRUTH" REALize evermore how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we Truly are, and so we "cry unto HIM day and night"....... (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 18:7)


Sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-declaration-of-dependence.html

FATHER Help!


HE DID!       and HE does.......

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/father-help-and-he-does.html

So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace, rat-race) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way, for "the WHOLE (not just a portion) world is under the control of the evil one" indeed and TRUTH....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

Anonymous, i could not publish your comment for all i have REALized is that i have been given the unction by Our FATHER and GOD to declare religion's way in this day and age to be anti-TRUTH, which is to be anti-Messiah! And to to share that which i have "seen(experienced) and heard(received)".......

And thankfully i finally REALized the need to evermore sound and resound a Declaration of Dependence!

For The Messiah testified, "i can do nothing of my own self"....... (John 5:19,30; 7:18; 8:28-29; 12:49-50 14:10, 23-24)

What then can i do but "cry unto Our Father and GOD day and night"! (Luke 18:7)

FATHER Help!

HE DID! and HE does.......

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER and GOD! (John 20:17)
