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

Back in '91 i had been in "search of the church(aka: ecclesia, which i now testify IS "The Family of Our FATHER and GOD")" for almost 5 years. And i had crisscrossed this place on earth they call the u.s.a. from vermont to california, washington to florida, and north dakota to texas.

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) yet i knew not what i could or would 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 of my possessions(which actually possessed me) behind when i began my search in earnest, and i could load all my "stuff" 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 other application software for companies that had, or were about to install, an ibm system 32, 34, 36 or 38 computer.

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 concerning my vocation! So thankfully one of 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) , in these last days was broken! 
(II Peter 3:18, II Thessalonians 2:10-12, John 7:7)

At that time it had already been revealed unto me that the "american dream" was just that, and that such should be rightly called "american greed" and/or "american delusion"!

And it seemed most every "church/community/religion" propagated that delusional "american dream"! Sadly such but provides fuel for the fires that emanate from mankind's "imag"ination! (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)

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

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! 
The destruction of Creation and perversion of that which IS SPIRIT, was revealed a few years later. Sadly this evil world and/or religion's way in these last days are but playgrounds 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)

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 evermore, of that which Truly mattered. (II Peter 3:18)

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 began to be endued with power from on High over the fleshly desires that had kept me bound in the chains of "strong delusion"! The "strong delusion" that causes a soul to but serve time in the prison that is this evil world and/or religion's way(except for The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) 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 that which Truly matters IS of The SPIRIT and TRUTH! (John 6:63)

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

And January of '92 found me in Tennessee abiding in 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.......

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 christian". Yet Thankfully, now i was but an "alien and pilgrim while on the earth"! (
I Peter 2:11, Hebrews 11:13, Philippians 3:20)

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(i did use propane for cooking)" 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", .etc.!


HE DID!       and HE does.......


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"......

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 revealed and REALized! (I John 5:19; 2:15-17, John 7:7, James 4:4)

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.......

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 Only Begotten 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)

And His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male), can we 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 Truly "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23)

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)

And when someone 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)

FATHER Help!       

HE DID!       and HE does.......

No longer was it "I" will, but the cry of my heart, the cry of my soul(liken unto The Messiah) was as it should be; 

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

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)

Thankfully Our FATHER knows what IS best for HIS children(HIS Creation)!

And that blessed time in the Copper Canyon area of Old Mexico revealed that to Truly "know", to Truly learn, is to "experience(see) and receive(hear)" evermore of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! (I John 1:3)

Mere reading can muddy the waters, for such "learning" more often than not feeds mankind's "imag"ination, and all that is truly known are those colored marks written on a dead tree and bound in fabrication! (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)

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

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

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)

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

And Yes! 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 because of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters "The Way of TRUTH is evil spoken of"!  (II Peter 2:1-3)

"Come out from among them(religion's way in this day and age) and be separate"! (II Corinthians 6:17)

For the "self("I", ego, id, pride)life";  lies; mankind's "imag"ination; and religion's way, are some of 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)!

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)

So it is, that those souls 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 is 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!

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" and then "Born Again", Eternal Life can not be! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7)

And The Life, Eternal Life, 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)

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

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:

FATHER Help!    

HE DID!       and HE does.......


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

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

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

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

Hope IS, there would be those souls 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)

For they will "Come Out" from among those souls 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)!

And Thankfully, they will experience "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding", in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace, lies) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith of James 1:27) in these last days! 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) 

So seek and desire to evermore abide in The TRUTH!       

For Thankfully TRUTH IS!       that which has to do with a lie is not.......

And TRUTH IS, The "I(id,ego,self,pride)" Must Die for The We to Be in "The Family of Our FATHER and GOD"! (Ephesians 3:15, John 20:17)

And 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 that 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)

The One Who leads His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) on "The Narrow Way" that IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! (Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)

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)

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

And Once Again: As The Messiah, so also will His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) seek and desire above all else:

"FATHER, Not My("I") Will, But THY Will Be Done"....... (Luke 22:42)

The poetic testimony i shared above was begun in The Copper Canyon area of old 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 soul.

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

For "I" can't!


And Thankfully, 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)


Yes! Thankfully Forever Free from the "I(ego, id, self, pride)" that sought it's way rather than "The Way, The TRUTH and The Life"! (John 14:6)

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.......

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 a soul receives "a love of The TRUTH they can not be saved"! (II Thessalonian 2:10-13)

And those souls 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)

Continually 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, rat-race) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way in this day and age; 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)
