(Genesis 3:1-8, John 7:7; 8:44) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/05/come-out-of-her-my-people.html
For "the serpent said to the wo-man, 'You will not surely die'"! (Genesis 3:4)
And such was the beginning of the world that was, a world that was ultimately destroyed by a "flood", wherein only eight souls, and the animals on Noah's Ark were saved"!
And as time passed and the population increased, mankind's "imag"ination began to lead them astray once again, and they said, "Go to, let us build a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven! And let us make a name (for ourselves), lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth"! (Genesis 11:4, John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4, II Corinthians 4:4, John 8:44)
Sadly, LIES evermore feed and nourish "the lust of the flesh"! Evermore seek to increase and please "the lust of the eye"! And evermore encourage and stoke the fires of "the pride of life"! (Genesis 3:6-7, 1 John 2:15-17) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html
And "The Word of TRUTH" testifies that "the WHOLE world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one"....... ( I John 5:19) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html
And "whoever would be a friend of this evil world is the enemy of Our FATHER and GOD", for those of this evil world and/or religion's way (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) crucified HIS Only Begotten Son! (John 7:7, James 4:4) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/whoever-would-be-friend-of-this-world.html
Yet, "Our FATHER and GOD had so loved the world that HE gave HIS Only Begotten Son that whoever believed in Him would not perish but have Eternal Life"! Yet those of this evil world and/or religion's way (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) crucified The Messiah, and they yet seek to crucify that which is of The SPIRIT and TRUTH! (John 3:16, John 7:7, James 1:27; 4:4)
Yet Thankfully that which IS of The SPIRIT and TRUTH Will Always Rise Again!
However, as was prophesied in New Covenant times, "evil men and seducers have waxed worse and worse, deceiving (lying) and being deceived (believing the lies)!" (II Timothy 3:13)
So it is "con"venient speakers abound! Those who with "good words and fair speeches evermore seek to deceive the hearts of the simple"...... (Romans 16:18)
Most certainly GOD does not love those who propagate LIES, deception and speak with guile; or those who have their portion in and of this evil world and/or religion's way (except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 8:44: 7:7, I John 5:19, Matthew 23)
"Come out of her(babel/ 'con'fusion/ babylon \world \religion), MY people"! (Revelations 18:4)
For TRUTH IS! "He who loves his life in this world will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it unto Life Eternal"! (John 12:25)
However, thankfully those who have "received a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved", and then were Truly "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and GOD"! They have overcome the world! And this is The Victory that overcomes the world, even our Faith!
(John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, I John 5:4) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html
And as The Anointed One (The Messiah) REALized, so also The Faithful "Born Again" brethren of The Messiah evermore REALize, "i can do nothing of my own self"....... (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
So it is, we continually sound and resound a Declaration of Dependence:
HE DID! and HE does.......
Thankfully the very breath(Spirit, air) we receive to sustain this natural life reveals "i can do nothing of my own self"! http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html
So, "You that are unable to do the least (breathing and breath are gifts that are received), why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:26) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html
Such REALized has it's portion in "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(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)
