"Grow in Grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Immanuel The Messiah"....... (II Peter 3:18)

First it needs be that i testify, "i do not follow Mahatma Gandhi, yet i do respect him above all other men who have received the breath(Spirit, air) of life since i received my first breath(Spirit, air) in '43. Such respect was manifest when i began reading the quotes attributed unto him, especially the quotes in his latter years on earth. http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/there-is-man-i-respect-above-all-others.html

And i believe Mahatma Gandhi experienced "growing in Grace", for the quotes attributed unto him reveal such:

For TRUTH IS! "i like your christ(aka: Messiah)i do not like your christians....... Your christians are so unlike your christ(aka: Messiah)"!

Sadly it is so....... And so it is that because of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters "The Way of TRUTH is evil spoken of"! (II Peter 2:1-3)

Thankfully Mahatma Gandhi REALized such and bore witness unto The TRUTH when he testified, "GOD has no religion"! (James 1:27)    http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

And he also testified: "At the time of writing I never think of what I have said before. My aim is not to be consistent with my previous statements on a given question, but to be consistent with TRUTH as it may present itself to me at a given moment. 

The result has been that I have grown from TRUTH to TRUTH; I have saved my memory an undue strain; and what is more, whenever I have been obliged to compare my writing even of fifty years ago with the latest, I have discovered no inconsistency between the two.


But friends who observe inconsistency will do well to take the meaning that my latest writing may yield unless, of course, they prefer the old. But before making the choice they should try to see if there is not an underlying and abiding consistency between the two seeming inconsistencies."

A wonderful testimony of "growing in Grace", and "the knowledge(experiential) of The TRUTH"! (II Peter 3:18, I Timothy 2:4)   http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/thankfully-truth-is-and-is-victorious-i.html


And as The Messiah, so also Mahatma Gandhi in his latter years REALized "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)

For 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  Self("I", ego, id, pride)Denial and Surrender.......  A Declaration of Dependence:

As for me?

"You that are unable to do the least, why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:26)

"Unable to do the least"?

Consider,  "who taught you how to breathe"?

And take a deep breath(Spirit, air), and then breathe no more!

Now could be such an effort would also cause you to REALize how "poor and in need", and "unable to do the least" we Truly are....... (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 12:26)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html

For TRUTH IS! As the breath(Spirit, air) that sustains this natural life is received, so it is that ALL that IS Truly GOOD needs be received as well! For it is as The Messiah testified,"There is none GOOD but GOD"! 
(Mark 10:18)   http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/all-that-is-truly-good-is-spirit-and.html

Which causes me to evermore REALize how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD i Truly am, even as i "grow in Grace and in the knowledge of my Lord and Savior Immanuel The Messiah"! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, II Peter 3:18)   http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/it-is-good-to-realize-how-poor-and.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/08/name-of-messiah.html

And liken unto The Messiah, so also have His brethren REALized "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

So it is we cry unto "Our FATHER and GOD" day and night"....... (John 20:17, Luke 18:7)

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:

FATHER Help!

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 2:15-17; 5:19, 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)
