Apart from being a "true saint" can a soul Truly begin to REALize The Life after being "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT? Thankfully a "Born Again" soul evermore "grows in Grace"! (John 3:3,7; 12:25, I Peter 1:23, II Peter 3:18) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html
As for me, i no longer have my portion with those you mentioned, those who have their portion with the "we" who are in and of this evil world and/or religion's way(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)
For Thankfully, prior to being "Born Again" of "The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT", i received "a love of The TRUTH so that i might be saved" from my own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life! And The TRUTH ultimately set me free from the ways of this evil world and what the worldly and/or religious souls call religion in this day and age(James 1:27 reveals The ONLY Pure Religion)! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 8:32,36; 7:7, I John 5:19)
Thankfully, "The TRUTH will set a soul Free, Free indeed"....... (John 8:32-26)
And TRUTH IS! There is no "freedom" in and of this evil world and/or religion's way (except it be The Active Faith revealed in James 1:27), there is only that which binds humanity in the chains of "strong delusion"! (John 7:7, II Corinthians 4:4, I John 2:15-17, James 4:4, II Thessalonians 2:10-13)
For IT IS as Mahatma Gandhi testified, "GOD has no religion"! And he testified, "Those who believe religion has nothing to do with politics don't know what religion is"....... And he also testified, "There is no GOD higher than TRUTH"! **Needs be i testify that i have great respect for Mahatma Gandhi yet i seek and desire to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way", and i believe Mahatma Gandhi did as well** And further quotes of Mahatma Gandhi can be read @
And TRUTH IS! "religion" was, and IS yet needful for "disobedient and gainsaying (contradicting and opposing GOD) people"! Those souls who are "stiff-necked and uncircumcised of heart and ears"; those who would "rather have a man, than Our FATHER and GOD, speak to(liken unto Moses) and rule over(liken unto Saul) them"....... (Acts 7:51, Romans 10:21, Exodus 20:19, I Samuel 8:4-21, Hebrews 8:13)
Yet Thankfully OUR FATHER, HE WHO IS The GOD of TRUTH! HE HAS Family, and HE yet communes with HIS children yet on earth! (John 20:17, Psalms 31:5, Ephesians 3:15)
And a "simple and Spiritual Life", which Mahatma Gandhi treasured in his latter years, was revealed in both The Life and The Teachings of The Messiah! And such a Life is indicative of those who have their portion !NOW! in The Family of Our FATHER and GOD, "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"! (Ephesians 3:15)
"A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH....... (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:19)
And liken unto Mahatma Gandhi, all The Faithful seek and desire to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way" that IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! (Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)
And Mahatma Gandhi's testimony concerning a "simple and Spiritual Life" was revealed in The Life he lived in his latter years!
Thankfully it was as he testified, "My Life is my message".......
Not mere "colored marks written on a dead tree"!
For in his latter years he REALized a "common union with spiritually "Born Again" brothers and sisters who called nothing their own, as they evermore sought and desired The Fruit bore in a simple and Spiritual Life"! (John 3:3, I Peter 1:23, Acts 2:44; 4:32, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 5:9)
Such a Living Testimony reveals more of The TRUTH that IS The Living WORD, than billions of "colored marks written on a dead tree and bound in fabrication"! (Acts 2:44; 4:32)
And the closer a soul gets to REALizing The Life while yet on earth, the farther away one REALizes they Truly are!
HE DID! and HE does.......
Thankfully Mahatma Gandhi 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 against myself and left me not a vestige of independence. The greater the surrender to HIM, the greater has been my Joy".......
YES! "Joy!" in Surrender and Self-denial! A Declaration of Dependence.......
And The Messiah Declared His Dependence when He testified;
"FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html
And The Messiah testified, "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
Can His brethren do anything more?
TRUTH IS! All Living, Lively "Born Again" souls yet on earth evermore sound and resound a Declaration of Dependence: http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-declaration-of-dependence.html
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) in this day and age....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)
