So it is HE "suffers long" with HIS children for HE IS LOVE! (I John 4:8, I Corinthians 13:4)
And the children of Our FATHER and GOD are to "count it all JOY when we experience various trials(aka: temptation, suffering, tribulation)! (James 1:2)
For TRUTH IS! "The trying of our Faith genders Patience. So let Patience have her perfect work, that you may be Perfected and complete, wanting nothing"....... (James 1:3-4)
Yet at times, when experience has caused me to once again REALize evermore how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD i Truly am, i have cried out in weakness "Make Me A Robot"! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 18:7) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html
Yet such is not The "Will and Good Pleasure of Our FATHER and GOD", nor is such "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life" as revealed in both The Life example and Teachings of The Messiah....... (Philippians 2:13, John 14:6) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/surrender-dependence-faith-way-to-truth.html
For "as The Messiah suffered, so also will His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) suffer" while in, yet not of this evil world"! (I Peter 2:21; 4:1; 5:10, Philippians 3:8)
HE DID! and HE does.......
And Dependency upon Our FATHER and GOD IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! And IS REALized by those who seek and desire to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way"...... (John 14:6, Matthew 7:14) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-declaration-of-dependence.html
And being "set free, free indeed" is to yearn! To seek! To desire! Such a yearning, seeking, and desire IS to do that which IS "The Will and Good Pleasure of Our FATHER and GOD"! For like The Messiah, so also have His brethren REALized "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 8:32-36, Philippians 2:13, John 5:19,30, 8:28-29, 7:16; 9:4; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)
FATHER Help! And HE does.......
And should not the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah SEEK and DESIRE that which The Messiah SOUGHT and DESIRED above all else?
"FATHER, not My will, But THY Will Be Done!" (Luke 22:42)
YES! Such needs be sought and desired above all else, and most certainly more than anything that is in, or of this evil world and/or religion's way! And YES! most certainly such needs be sought and desired more than this natural, temporal life as well.......
For The Will and The Doing of "Our FATHER's Will and Good Pleasure" genders Eternal Life! (II Peter 3:9, I John 2:25, John 12:25)
Thankfully IT IS as The Messiah testified, "whoever lives and believes in Me (Both His Life and The Teachings which He received from Our FATHER) shall never die! (John 11:26a)
And then The Messiah questioned, "Do you believe this"? (John 11:26b)
TRUTH IS! "Our FATHER and GOD rewards those who diligently seek HIM (HIS Will and Good Pleasure)"! And what greater reward than"Eternal Life"? Such is that which is sought and desired by the brethren of The Messiah, all of whom have REALized how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we Truly are....... (Hebrews 11:6, Philippians 2:13, Psalms 70:5; 72:13)
For it is Our FATHER who works in HIS children "both the will and the doing of HIS Good Pleasure"! Such is "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life" and was clearly revealed in both The Life and The Teachings of The Messiah. (Philippians 2:13, John 14:6, I John 2:6)
And it is needful to REALize that The Messiah received both His Life and His Teachings from "Our FATHER and GOD"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24)
Thankfully, "to come to the end of ones self("I", ego, id, pride)life is a GOOD thing"!
Refined, purified, sanctified, made holy(set apart), despised, hated, "cast down but not destroyed,,,,,,,"!
(II Corinthians 4:7-10)
"Suffering long", even as "Our FATHER and GOD suffers long with us", indeed and TRUTH....... (II Timothy 3:12, Romans 8:17) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/suffering-long-even-as-our-father-and.html
Thankfully, "Love suffers long"! (I Corinthians 13:4)
And, "All things work together for The Good (not that all things seem good at the time), for those who love Our FATHER and GOD, those souls who are the called in accordance with HIS Will and GOOD Pleasure"! (Romans 8:28, Philippians 2:13) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/08/all-things-work-together-for-good.html
So while breath(Spirit, air) is, HOPE IS!
For TRUTH IS! "Our FATHER and GOD suffers long with HIS children"....... (I John 4:8, I Corinthians 13:4)
And once again, for The TRUTH always bears repeating:
The children of Our FATHER and GOD have REALized that, liken unto The Messiah, so also "i can do nothing (that is Truly Good) of my own self (for "there IS none GOOD but GOD)"....... (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14, Mark 10:18) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html
So it is 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)....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 1:27; 4:4)
Thankfully TRUTH IS! a lie is not.......
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)
