Simply, perfection(being perfected) can only begin to be REALized when, liken unto "The Anointed One(Messiah)", a soul Truly REALizes "i can do nothing of my own ("I", ego, id, pride) self, for The Life IS SPIRIT and TRUTH! (I Peter 5:10, II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)
The very breath(Spirit, air) we receive to sustain this natural life reveals such, for as no one taught you how to breathe, so it is no one learns how to breathe.......
TRUTH IS breathing(life, Spirit, air) is a gift received, and every living soul received and yet receives of the gift(breathing, Spirit, breath, air) that IS life! For that which IS Spirit(air, life) enlivens our fleshly body.......
Such reveals The TRUTH that testifies, "it is not that which "I"(ego,id,self,pride) have done, but that which The CREATOR has done for me, and in me"; so that as The Messiah, i also might bear witness unto The TRUTH that speaks "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
Simply, such IS a Declaration of Dependence!
And, "You that are unable to do the least(breathing is a gift that was received at birth), why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:25-31) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html
Mahatma Gandhi, he REALized and bore witness of such, when he testified, "I have been a willing slave to this most exacting MASTER for more then half a century. HIS Voice has been increasingly audible as years have rolled by. HE has never forsaken me even in my darkest hour. HE has saved me often from myself and left me not a vestige of independence. The greater the surrender to HIM, the greater has been my Joy".......
Yes! 'Joy' in Surrender and Self("I", ego, id, pride)Denial....... Not "self-confidence" but Dependence:
And needs be i testify, that of all the men who have received the breath(Spirit, air) of life since i received my first breath(Spirit, air) in '43, i respect Mahatma Gandhi above all others. Yet i do not follow him, for i but seek to follow The Messiah on "The Narrow Way"! (Matthew 7:14)
The source of such respect being The Spirit of and in the quotes attributed unto him; some of which are posted @ http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/earth-provides-enough-to-satisfy-every.html
And when Mahatma Gandhi received that final breath(air, Spirit); i believe in that moment of time he was taken Home, Home at last! (John 14:1-3)
For Thankfully, Forever IS.......
Gandhi was taken Home, for i believe he also sought to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way" in his latter years, for he forsook 'politics'. Yet he fasted and prayed when he believed such was needful, and when called upon to help, he did! And he lived The Life in a common union with Spiritual brothers and sisters who called nothing their own as they evermore sought and desired The Fruit bore in "a simple and Spiritual Life"! (Matthew 7:14, Ephesians 3:15, Acts 2:44; 4:32, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 5:9)
And i believe "a simple and Spiritual Life" is The Life as revealed in both The Life and The Teachings of The Messiah, indeed and TRUTH! And Thankfully the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah have a Living, Lively Hope of Heaven instilled within their being as we await our final transform-ation, "corruptible to incorruptible"! And so it is we earnestly await that moment in time when we receive of that final breath (air, Spirit) and are taken Home, Home at last....... (Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 2:11, Colossians 1:5, I Corinthians 15:51-55, Philippians 1:21, John 14:1-3)
Till then, as The Messiah REALized, so also His brethren evermore REALize that in ALL things, and above ALL things, it needs be:
"FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42)
For Our FATHER, HE knows what IS best for HIS children.......
And Thankfully, the brethren of The Messiah choose to remain but "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth", "being perfected" as we evermore REALize how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we Truly are! (Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 2:11, Psalms 70:5; 72:13)
So it is we "cry unto HIM day and night"! (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
Sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:
HE DID! and HE does.......
Such should be REALized with every breath(Spirit, air) we receive in this natural life!
And 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)....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 5:19; 2:15-17; 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)
