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

(II Kings 5:1-14) Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him The LORD had given victory to Syria. He was also a mighty man of valor, but 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 was with a prophet who i know of in Samaria! For he would cure him of his leprosy."

Naaman went in and told his master, saying, "I was told there is a prophet in Israel who could cure me of my leprosy."

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.

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

When the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his clothes and said, "Am I ELOHIM, to kill and to make alive? Why is the king of Israel sending word to me to cure a man of his leprosy? Why is he seeking a quarrel against me."

Yet It happened when Elisha the man of ELOHIM heard that the king of Israel had torn his clothes because of the letter, he sent word to the king, saying, "Why have you torn your clothes? Now let Naaman come to me, for he shall realize 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 ELOHIM, 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(ego,id,self, pride)" 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 ELOHIM! And his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child and he was cleansed." (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 ELOHIM(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 leprosy(dis-ease)! (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)

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

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

The worldly and/or religious souls remain dis-eased even though The True servants, of The ONE and ONLY TRUE ELOHIM(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)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

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

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 'D'evil "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

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/06/religion-is-of-father-of-lies.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)!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/07/simply-progress-so-called-is-destroying.html

And The CREATOR(FATHER, TRUTH, SPIRIT, ELOHIM,,,,,,, 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)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

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.......

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

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 'D'evil's world and/or religion's way(Except it be the Active Faith revealed in James 1:27)! And also the darkness of the "I(ego, id, self, pride)" that - IS - in each and every soul born of the seed of a natural man! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 8:12, I John 5:19, James 1:27, John 12:25)

FATHER Help!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/01/is-there-name-or-title-greater-than.html

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

!.......FOREVER.......!

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

Thankfully so! For Our FATHER and ELOHIM, 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)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/our-father-and-god-he-yet-communes-with.html

So - IT IS - we "cry unto HIM day and night"! (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:

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

FATHER Help!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/01/is-there-name-or-title-greater-than.html

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

!.......FOREVER.......!

So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" - IS - ! In spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that - IS - of 'D'evil's world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27!) in these last days! (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

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

HalleluYAH!       !.......FOREVER.......!
