Someone had testified, "i just want to be a normal christian, not liken unto Paul"!

And i responded(With further testimony added):

Yes, Paul was an Apostle, but a "normal christian"? (I Corinthians 15:9)

i question such because there was a time when "I" believed that "I" had received 'new life'! (John 3:3,7, ! Peter 1:23)

And "I(ego, id, self, pride)" decided that "I" didn't want to be a "disciple" and follow The Messiah on "The Narrow Way"! "I" just wanted to be a "normal christian"! (Matthew 7:13; 16:14)
During that time i was being "churched", which is liken unto a cloning process that uses a "Reader's Digest" type(Condensed!) version of what a particular 'church system' calls their 'bible'!

And the cloning was primarily of the worldly "do your best and leave the rest to god" variety, for i had not yet REALized that The Messiah had testified, "i can do nothing of my own self! (Luke 12:26, John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)

Question IS! Can His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) do anything more?

Such cloning was also of the "cleanliness is next to godliness" ... "don't worry, be happy" ... "love your country" ... "x-mass, easter, 4th of july, holyween" ... "song, song, prayer, message, collection, song, prayer, benediction" ... "'church on sunday, saturday for some ... "bible study mid-week" ... "grace, grace, grace" ... "it's all good" ... "you can't judge me" ... "i'm ok, you're ok" ... "what me worry" ... "eat, drink and be merry" ... "hey, it's all good",,,,,, variety!

All of which are "normal christian" philosophical, theo'ry'logical, pharisaical, braindirtying processes that but further the cause of the 'con'venient speakers! Those souls "who with good words and fair speeches evermore seek to deceive the hearts of the simple"! (Romans 16:18)

And in my "search for the church(Rightly called The Family of Our FATHER and GOD!) " i experienced such within the lutheran, catholic, baptist, aog, coc, lds, jw, sda, pby, meth, pent, cog, non-denom, inter-denom,,etc,, religions! As well as hutterite, so-called conservative and old-order mennonite groups(Liken unto the amish!), various "intentional communities", "home churches" and "street ministries"! 

Thankfully "Our FATHER and GOD", HE delivered me from religion's way in spite of me! And HE evermore delivers me from "the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life"! From fleshly, self("I", ego, id, pride)ish desires and vain "imag"inations that would once again bind me in the chains of "strong delusion"! (John 20:17, Genesis 3:6, I John 2:15-17, II Thessalonians 2:10-13, II Corinthians 10:5, Romans 1:21)


HE DID!       and HE does.......


For Thankfully i had experienced  The Miracle that IS "receiving a love of The TRUTH so that i might be saved" prior to searching for what i then called "the true church", however i had not yet been "Born Again"! i did not receive of "The Life" until, in spite of me, i no longer could do what i wanted to do....... (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, Luke 22:42)

And The TRUTH ultimately revealed that as "The Word of TRUTH" testifies, so IT IS there IS Only One "Pure Religion and Undefiled"! (James 1:18,27)

"Pure Religion and Undefiled before Our FATHER and GOD is this! To visit The FATHERless(Those who have no relationship with The GOD and FATHER{Creator} of ALL!), and widows(Those whose "bridegroom{The Messiah}" has not risen from among the dead!) in their affliction and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the world!" (James 1:27)

Not a system! And not religion's way as known today, but The Active Faith of those souls who, in TRUTH, have been "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! Those "son's(naturally male or 'fe'male) of Our FATHER and GOD" who have their portion !NOW! in HIS Family, of "WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"....... (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, I John 3:1-2, Philippians 2:15, Ephesians 3:15)

"A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH! (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 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 each and every time they view their reflected "image"!

"Come out from among them and be separate"! (II Corinthians 6:17)

ALL Religion! (Except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27!)


HE DID!       and HE does.......


"A normal christian"?

Seems a soul should rather REALize who the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah Truly ARE!

Would not a brother of The Messiah be seeking and desiring to follow Him on "The Narrow Way"; "walking as He walked"; willingly "forsaking all that they have! YES, and their own life as well"? (Matthew 7:13-14, I John 2:6, Luke 14:33) 

Seems the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah would be seeking and desiring that which The Messiah sought and desired above all else:

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

FATHER Help!       HE DID!       and HE does......


Yet "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life" is most certainly not the easy way, not the ease-of-life way! But "Oh, the joy that floods my soul" when i REALize that Our FATHER and GOD, HE truly cares for and provides for the needs of each and every one of HIS children! Those whose heart(The Life Center both naturally and Spiritually!)felt desire is to do "HIS Will and GOOD Pleasure"! And such was revealed in both The Life and The Teachings of The Messiah! (John 14:6, II Peter 2:1-3, John 20:17, I Timothy 6:17, Philippians 2:13)

And it is needful to REALize that The Messiah received both His Life and His Teachings from "Our FATHER and GOD", and that The Messiah testified "i can do nothing of my own self"....... (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 12:49-50 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)

So what can His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) do of their own("I", ego, id, pride)selves?

"You that are unable to do the least(Breathing and breath(Spirit/air) are gifts that were and yet needs be received for life to be!), why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:26)

And so it is that i believe the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah are His disciples, for a soul needs be evermore disciplined so
 that they might "be saved" from their own self("I", ego, id, pride)life; their own way; and their own vain "imag"inations! Saved from their version of life, so that we might evermore receive of The Life as we "grow in Grace"! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, II Peter 3:18)

i believe that a soul who Is Not disciplined(A disciple!), Is Not of The Messiah's brethren
(naturally male or 'fe'male)! And His brethren have REALized, that liken unto The Messiah so also "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 8:28:29; 5:19,30)

Yet, His brethren are not cookie-cutter clones by any means, however their heart's desire is that which The Messiah sought and desired above all else:

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


HE DID!       and HE does.......


And "a normal christian"?

Seems "the god of this world, he who is "the father of lies", uses them in his war against The TRUTH! (John 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4; 10:3-4, I Timothy 1:18, Ephesians 6:12)

And the money loving, love your own life in and of this evil world; ease-of-life; i'm ok, you're ok; consumptive, destructive, perverse, theo'ry'logical, lying systems that are religion's way(Except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27!) in this day and age; all war against The TRUTH! (John 8:32-36)

And religious systems, all of which are of this evil world, are leading the way as babylon(Babel, dis-order, one world!) is re"imag"ined! (Genesis 11:6)

One wicked world(The united nations are subject unto 'd'evil "god of this world"!), one primary language
(English), and "Now nothing will be restrained from them that they have "imag"ined to do"! (II Corinthians 4:4, John 8:44, Genesis 11:6)

So it is that those souls who are of this evil world and/or religion's way(Except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27!) are destroying Creation(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) and evermore perverting that which IS SPIRIT(TRUTH, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Grace, Faith,,,, All that is Truly GOOD)!

"Come Out of her(babel/'con'fusion/babylon\world\religion), MY people!" (Revelations 18:4)

Seek and desire to have your portion with The Messiah !NOW! in The Family of “Our FATHER and GOD", "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"!(Ephesians 3:15)

"A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH....... (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:19)

And NEW "Jerusalem which IS above IS free, and IS !NOW! The Mother of us all(Spiritually "Born Again" son's{naturally male or 'fe'male} of Our FATHER and GOD)"! (Galatians 4:26, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23)

Thankfully "The Mother" of the "Born Again" brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah is no longer "mother earth", earthly and of the flesh....... For "NEW Jerusalem" which IS Heavenly IS SPIRIT and of The TRUTH!

So it is the brethren of The Messiah seek and desire to "forsake all for The Kingdom of Heaven's sake"! And we choose to remain but "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth", for we have REALized that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven", and that soon and very soon, we will be taken Home, Home at last! (Matthew 13:34, I Peter 2:11, Hebrews 11:13, Philippians 3:20, John 14:2-3)

Till then:

We "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD 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 these last days!
(Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4; 1:27)

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)

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