Thankfully i have experienced such when i was in the wilderness and amoebic dysentery had run it's course....... And i was weakened to the point where i could no longer get out of bed.......
And then i heard A Voice, which i believe was The Voice of Our FATHER and GOD clearly speak, "Rise Up and Walk"! And i was instantly healed from a dis-ease which i thought was going to be the end of this natural, temporal life. Yet i rose up from that bed of affliction and continued my walk like a man, evermore Thankful and Hopeful!
Yet a bit of remorse set in later, for i had believed i was going to be taken Home, Home at last.......
"Save me, and I shall be saved......." (Jeremiah 17:14b, II Thessalonians 2:10-13)
And some 15 years prior to that miraculous healing, in what seemed to be life's darkest hour i believed that ending "my" life was the only answer! For at that time i had not REALized that i was surrounded by liars who loved to play their games with me. i had not yet REALized that they abode midst the blackness of darkness that is the domain of "the father of lies", he who is "the god of this world" and religion's way in this day and age(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)! (John 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4)
And as i considered ending 'my' life, i agonized and inwardly sought out an alternative answer.......
Then Thankfully, i received a Vision in which the integrity of my natural male parent was first revealed. And then i received the following Words deep within my soul, my being.......
And i loudly vocalized those Words as i received them....... "GOD if YOU are a GOD then YOU'RE a GOD of TRUTH, for a lie never existed and never will! Needs be that i abide in TRUTH! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/miracles-faith-receiving-love-of-truth.html
And in that moment in time i made a commitment to "abide in The TRUTH(prior to that time i would lie if the truth would cause me grief)", yet not REALizing at that time that a soul needs "receive a love of The TRUTH to be saved" from their own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life.......
HE DID! and HE does.......
TRUTH IS! A soul needs "cast all their cares upon Our FATHER, for HE cares for HIS children"! (I Peter 5:7) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/sufficiency-is-of-creator-and-his.html
So it is i give HIM ALL The Praise and Glory as well"! (Jeremiah 17:14c, Psalms 79:13)
And since that moment in time, Thankfully i have evermore REALized The TRUTH that testifies,"you that are unable to do the least (breathing was a gift received as is every breath(Spirit, air), why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:25-31) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html
Simply, every breath(Spirit, air) we receive to sustain this natural life reveals how "poor and in need" of The Creator(Our FATHER) we Truly are! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13)
And liken unto The Messiah, so also His brethren have 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, Matthew 16:24-25)
So it is the brethren of The Messiah seek and desire that which He sought and desired above all else:
"FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42)
Yes! more that this natural life itself.......
So it is we "cry unto HIM day and night"....... (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, 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 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)
