Being set free from materialism and inordinate desires!

Someone testified, "We are much too materialistic now and our desires cause us to seek ever more."

And i responded (with further testimony added):

Sadly, for the multitudes it is so!

Yet TRUTH IS! Such needs not be.......

Hopefully there will be those who REALize that to be of the "we" who are of this evil world and/or religion's way (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age, is to be of those who are destroying Creation (air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which IS SPIRIT (TRUTH, Light, Life, Peace, Ahimsa, Love, Faith, Grace, Wisdom,,,,,,, ALL that IS Truly GOOD)!

i believe that Mahatma Gandhi was one of The Faithful few who REALized that "a simple and Spiritual Life" was "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life" as revealed in both The Life and The Teachings of The Messiah! (Needs be i testify that i seek and desire to follow The Messiah not Mahatma Gandhi! Yet i respect him more than any other soul who has received the breath{Spirit, air} of life since i received my first breath in '43)

For in his latter years Mahatma Gandhi had naught to do with politics(except when called upon to help), yet when religious and political warfare began, he then began a "fast unto death" as he sought  to stem the tide of violence, after which he was martyred....... 

Thankfully, i believe he was taken Home, Home at last! (John 14:1-3)

And Thankfully in his latter years he REALized a "common union" with Spiritual brothers and sisters who called nothing their own as they evermore sought and desired naught but The Fruit bore in a simple and Spiritual Life....... (John 14:6, Acts 2:44; 4:32, Galatians 5:22; Ephesians 5:9)

Sadly...... i have received no responses to a question i have often asked, "where on earth is there such a "common union" today"? (A comment revealing such would be welcomed!)

Oh, there are monasteries, convents, so-called "communities(and i experienced many)", and such like. Yet what of Family? Spiritual brothers and sisters? "The Family of Our FATHER and GOD" which IS both "in Heaven and ON EARTH"! (Ephesians 3:15, Galatians 4:26)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

"A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH....... (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:19)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

Thankfully so! 

And TRUTH IS, a "common union" was REALized by the Apostles and disciples after The Messiah was raised from among the dead! And such a "common union" would help a soul remain free from the extreme materialism and inordinate desires of this day and age.......

And Yes, most certainly "The Messiah will set a soul Free, Free indeed"! (John 8:32-36)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-messiah-testified-whoever-lives-and.html

Yet sadly, sin (the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life) has bound mankind in the chains of "strong delusion" that are of this evil world and/or religion's way(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age! (Acts 2:44; 4:32, Genesis 3:6, I John 2:15-17, II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 7:7, James 1:27: 4:4)

So Heed The Call to "Come out of her (babel/'con'fusion/babylon\world\religion), My people"! (Revelations 18:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/05/come-out-of-her-my-people.html

Thankfully i have chosen to remain but an "alien and pilgrim while on the earth", and so it is i REALize evermore how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD i Truly am......
(Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 1:23, Psalms 70:5; 72:13)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/are-you-alien-and-pilgrim-while-on-earth.html

And so i "cry unto HIM day and night"! (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

FATHER Help!

HE DID!       and HE does......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/my-prayer-father-help-and-he-does.html

And i believe that Mahatma Gandhi Declared his Dependence as well, 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 the 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"....... (And once again, needs be that i testify that i seek and desire to follow The Messiah not Mahatma Gandhi! Yet i respect him more than any other soul who has received the breath{Spirit, air} of life since i received my first breath in '43)

Yes!  "JOY" REALized in Self-Denial and Surrender.......   A Declaration of Dependence!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-declaration-of-dependence.html

And The Messiah, He also declared His dependence! 

For He testified, "i can do nothing of my own self'", and His brethren have REALized the same! (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

And liken unto The Messiah, so also do His brethren yet on earth seek and desire above ALL else; 

"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 

Yes! The Will of Our FATHER and GOD needs be sought and desired more than this natural life itself....... For Our FATHER, HE knows what IS best for HIS children!

FATHER Help!

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

So "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; 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:1-4)

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER, HE WHO IS The FATHER and GOD of The Messiah and His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male)! (John 20:17. Luke 11:2, Matthew 6:9)

"Our FATHER and GOD" indeed and TRUTH! (John 20:17; Matthew 6:9, Luke 11:2)

HalleluYAH!
