"Behold, 'I' thought"! (2 Kings 5:1-14)

(II Kings 5:1-14) "Now Naaman, captain of the army of the king of Aram, was a great man with his master, and highly respected, because by him YHVH had given victory to Aram. The man was also a valiant warrior, but he was a leper.

Now the Arameans had gone out in bands and had taken captive a little girl from the land of Israel, and she waited on Naaman's wife.

She said to her mistress, "I wish that my master were with the prophet who is in Samaria! Then he would cure him of his leprosy."

Naaman went in and told his master, saying, "Thus and thus spoke the girl who is from the land of Israel."

Then the king of Aram said, "Go now, and I will send a letter to the king of Israel." He departed and took with him ten talents of silver and six thousand shekels of gold and ten changes of clothes.

He brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, "And now as this letter comes to you, behold, I have sent Naaman my servant to you, that you may cure him of his leprosy."

When the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his clothes and said, "Am I GOD, to kill and to make alive, that this man is sending word to me to cure a man of his leprosy? But consider now, and see how he is seeking a quarrel against me."

It happened when Elisha the man of GOD heard that the king of Israel had torn his clothes, that he sent word to the king, saying, "Why have you torn your clothes? Now let him come to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel."

So Naaman came with his horses and his chariots and stood at the doorway of the house of Elisha.

And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, "Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh will be restored to you and you will be clean."

But Naaman was furious and went away and said, "Behold 'I(ego,id,self,pride)' Thought", He will surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of The LORD his GOD, and wave his hand over the place and cure the leprosy.  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

Are not Abanah and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel! Could "I" not wash in them and be clean?" So he turned and went away in a rage.

Then his servants came near and spoke to him and said, "My father, had the prophet told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more then, when he says to you, 'Wash, and be clean'!" 

So he went down and dipped himself seven times in the Jordan, according to the word of the man of GOD, and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child and he was clean." (II Kings 5:1-14)

"Behold 'I(ego,id,self,pride)' Thought("imag"ined)"! (II Kings 5:11)

Such has kept the multitudes of worldly and/or religious souls(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) from experiencing The Power that IS The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT of Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT).......  

The Power that raised The Messiah from among the dead! (I Corinthians 6:14)

And except it had been for his "servants", Naaman's pride and "imag"ination would have kept him from being cleansed of his dis-ease! (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)

Sadly! In this day and age the multitudes yet remain dis-eased(naturally, yet to a greater degree Spiritually) as they abide in their own personal vain "imag"inations! And they also have been bound in the chains of "strong delusion" that are of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

The worldly and/or religious souls remain dis-eased even though The True servants, of The ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD(SPIRIT) and FATHER(CREATOR) of ALL(Messiah inclusive), continue to bear witness unto The TRUTH that would cleanse them! (John 8:32-36, II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

For when a soul "receives a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self("I", ego, id, pride)life, it is then they begin to REALize how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER we Truly are! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, Psalms 70:5; 72:13)

For that which is of The TRUTH reveals the blackness of darkness that IS mankind's "imag"ination, which IS of the "I(id, ego, self, pride)" in all souls! And mankind's "imag"ination IS most certainly a playground for "the god of this world", he who IS "the father of lies"! (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5: 4:4, John 8:44, Genesis 3:1-7)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

So it is that mankind's "imag"ination is destroying Creation(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures)! And those who believe in 'd'evil's "progress"ive worldly and/or religious ways are evermore perverting that which IS SPIRIT(TRUTH, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Faith, Grace, Hope,,,,, ALL that is Truly GOOD)!

And The CREATOR(FATHER, TRUTH, SPIRIT, GOD,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD) has promised that HE will "destroy those who would destroy the earth(HIS Creation)!" (Revelations 11:18c)

"Behold 'I(ego,id,self,pride)' Thought("imag"ined)"! (II Kings 5:11)

Sad, very sad indeed.......

For TRUTH IS! That which IS of The (!.......FOREVER.......!) Life, that which IS Truly Good(liken unto the breath{Spirit,air} of life) needs be RECEIVED from Our FATHER; not just "thought(aka: "imag"ined)"! (Philippians 2:5, I Peter 4:1. John 20:17) 

And Thankfully while breath(Spirit, air) IS, Hope IS!

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


So Thankfully the “I” will begin to atrophy and die, if and when a soul "receives a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved"! For "The Light of TRUTH" evermore reveals the blackness of darkness that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be the Active Faith revealed in James 1:27); and the "I(ego, id, self, pride)" that is in each and every soul born of the seed of man! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 8:12, I John 5:19, James 1:27, John 12:25)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html


HE DID!       and HE does.......


And TRUTH IS! As The Messiah testified, so also have His "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) REALized, "i can do nothing of my own self"! (I Peter 1:23, John 3:3,7; 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

Thankfully so! For Our FATHER and GOD, HE IS ALIVE! And HE yet communes with HIS children, those "Born Again", "Set Free" souls who have REALized how "poor and in need" of HIM we Truly are...... (John 20:17, John 8:32-36; 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, Psalms 70:5; 72:13)

So it is we "cry unto HIM day and night"! (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)

Evermore 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(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age!
(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)
