"Behold, these are the ungodly"!

"Behold, these are the ungodly, they prosper in the world as they evermore increase in riches." For the whole world (not just a portion) IS under the control of the evil one"....... (Psalms 73:12; 70:5, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 4:1-4, II Corinthians 10:4, John 8:44)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

And this day and age most certainly proves beyond a doubt that "The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted!" (Psalms 12:8)

Yet, in the past few years there has been many "well to do rich folk" who have promised to "give away half of their 'riches' (aka: money)".

That brought back memories and i can relate to those 'rich' folk, because back in '82 i was tempted by 'riches'! And i also believed i would give half of those 'riches' away. And yes! At that time i considered such would be a righteous act.......

i had developed the first functioning "Point of Sale (UPC Code)" system for small grocery stores and five stores were using that system. And such has become a multi-billion dollar business in this day and age(technological). Articles concerning the new system were written and published in trade magazines, and technological publications. And ibm sure wanted to do whatever they could for me so that i might join them in their quest for 'riches'!

Thankfully "the love of The TRUTH" i had received prior to that time kept me from my own self("I",ego,id,pride)ish desires! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

And Thankfully my desire for 'riches', which were mine for the taking, wasn't worth as much to me as that "love of The TRUTH" i had received! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/05/my-testimony-of-receiving-love-of-truth.html

However, that's not how i would have phrased it back then when i came out from among those who served "the father of lies", "the ungodly ones who evermore sought to increase in riches"....... (John 8:44, Psalms 73:12)

Yet Thankfully that was the way it was, in spite of me!

Not that i was required to lie, but just have my portion with the liars. For as i began to follow that "broad way", and sought the 'riches of this world', the liars seemed to appear out of nowhere and surround me! Those souls who have an "i'll scratch your back if you scratch mine" mentality that is grounded in 'con'venient speech...... (Romans 16:18)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

Thankfully, in spite of me, Our FATHER and GOD, HE gave me the strength to finally say "NO MORE"! Thankfully i could no longer have my portion with the greedy liars, deceivers, and those who would give or take a  bribe as they followed that "broad way to destruction"! (Matthew 7:13)

Naturally it was a very painful experience...... 

Yet Thankfully! In spite of me, all that i had worked for, and dreamed about, came to an end.......

For i could no longer have my portion with the 'con'venient speakers and liars and so i quit, in spite of the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" that yet remained within me!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER and GOD....... (John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

So it is, "i know and am persuaded that HE(Our FATHER) IS able to keep me", and evermore establish The TRUTH of The Life that speaks, "FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done", within my being(body, soul, and spirit)....... (II Timothy 1:12, Luke 22:42)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

And Our FATHER, HE continues to prove that HE knows what is best for HIS children, indeed and TRUTH! 

And Thankfully HIS Will, Will Be Done in spite of me, not because of me.......

"Trust in Our FATHER with ALL your heart and lean not unto your own understanding"! (Proverbs 3:5)

And let "suffering long" continue, for "Love suffers long" indeed and TRUTH! (I Corinthians 13:4)

However, Thankfully "tribulation(suffering) genders Patience, and Patience experience, and experience Hope"! And Hope most certainly is nothing to be "ashamed of" ....... (Romans 5:3-5)

And IT IS as The Messiah testified, "Woe unto you who are rich, for you have received your consolation"! (Luke 6:24)

"And then The Messiah said unto his disciples, "Truly I say unto you that a rich man shall hardly enter into The Kingdom of Heaven". And again I say unto you, "It is easier for a rope to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into The Kingdom of GOD". (Matthew 19:23-24)

"HE(GOD) has filled the hungry with good things(TRUTH, Love, Faith, Hope, Peace,,,,,,, ALL that is Truly GOOD), and the rich HE has sent away empty!" (Luke 1:53)

And today we have the rich believing "righteousness" is in the giving away of half of that which they believe they are "worth"......

Even as the testimony of The Messiah continues to sound the alarm, "Whoever of you that does not forsake all that he has, he can not be My disciple!" (Luke 14:33)

"Yes! And one's own life as well......." (Luke 14:26)

Thankfully the brethren of The Messiah have REALized, that liken unto The Messiah so also "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

So, "you that are unable to do the least (breathing was the gift of life, and breath(Spirit, air) needs be 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

So it is, the brethren of The Messiah "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"....... (Luke 6:46, John 20:17)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:

FATHER Help!


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

So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! In spite of the dis-ease (busy-ness) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27), for "the WHOLE world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one" indeed and TRUTH....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17;5:19, James 1:27; 4:1-4)

Yes! Peace IS.......

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)
