"The closer i get, the farther away i REALize i am"!

First needs be that i testify, "of all the men who have received the breath(Spirit, air) of life since i received my first breath in '43, i respect Mahatma Gandhi above all others". (Yet i do not follow Mahatma Gandhi, for i seek and desire to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way(Matthew 7:14)", and i believe Mahatma Gandhi in his latter years sought and desired to follow The Messiah as well!)

The source of my respect for Mahatma Gandhi is not because of what others have written or bore witness of concerning him, but the source of such respect IS The Spirit of and in the quotes attributed unto him.  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/earth-provides-enough-to-satisfy-every.html

One of which was, "GOD has no religion"! (James 1:27 bears witness unto The One and Only "Pure Religion and Undefiled", and such reveals an Active Faith and not religion's way in this day and age!)

And i take the liberty to add, "yet Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT), HE has Family”! (Ephesians 3:5, Galatians 6:10)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

And Mahatma Gandhi testified, "Those who believe that religion has nothing to do with politics, do not know what religion is"! And "i like your christ(Messiah/Anointed One), but not your christians....... Your christians are so unlike your christ"!

Yes! 

However, TRUTH IS religion and government(politics) were and are yet needful for "disobedient and gainsaying (contradicting and opposing GOD) people", those souls who are "stiff-necked and uncircumcised of heart and ears"! (Romans 10:21, Acts 7:51)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

Needful for those worldly and/or religious souls who would rather have a man (Moses, Samuel, etc.) than Our FATHER and GOD speak to them, and who would rather have a man(Saul, David, etc.) than Our FATHER and GOD rule over them! (Exodus 20:19, l Samuel 8:4-21, John 20:17; 14:28)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

Rather than religion's way, a soul needs to evermore seek and desire to follow The Messiah(The Anointed One) on “The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life”! And it is needful to REALize that The Messiah testified that He received both His Life and His Teachings from Our FATHER and GOD, HE WHO IS The Only True GOD! And that The Messiah testified, "i can do nothing of my own self"....... (John 14:6; 20:17; 17:3; 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

And the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah, can we do anything more?

FATHER Help!

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

And Mahatma Gandhi REALized how "poor and in need" he was when he testified, "I am but a poor struggling soul yearning to be wholly good, wholly Truthful and wholly non-violent in thought, word and deed, but ever failing to reach the ideal which I know to be True. It is a painful climb, but the pain of it is a positive pleasure to me. Each step upwards makes me feel stronger and fit for the next"....... (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Colossians 3:2)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/set-your-affection-on-things-above.html

A wonder filled testimony of evermore "Growing in Grace"! (II Peter 3:18)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/grow-in-grace-and-in-knowledge-of-our.html

And 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"....... (Luke 22:42)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-messiah-servant-of-and-sent-by-only.html

Yes, Joy! REALized in Self-Denial and Surrender, Mahatma Gandhi's Declaration of Dependence!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-declaration-of-dependence.html

And in his latter years he REALized a common union with Spiritual brothers and sisters who called nothing their own, as they but sought and desired evermore of The Fruit bore in a simple and Spiritual Life! (Acts 2:44; 4:32, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 5:9)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-treasures-of-simple-and-spiritual.html

A "Household of Faith"! Family indeed and TRUTH....... (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 3:15: 2:19)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

Such a "common union" has it's portion in and of, "The Way, The TRUTH and The Life"! (John 14:6)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/because-of-religions-way-way-of-truth.html

Yes! The Life, for "today IS the day of Salvation"!  Forever....... (II Corinthians 6:2)

And simply, as Mahatma Gandhi testified "My life is my message", so it is for all souls yet receiving the breath(Spirit, air) that sustains this temporal life!

What is your message?

Mahatma Gandhi's message YET IS, and i believe he IS ALIVE!

For I believe that when received that final breath(Spirit, air) on earth he was taken Home, Home at last! (John 14:1-3, Ephesians 3:15)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/home-home-at-last-john-141-3.html

For IT IS as The Messiah testified, "Whoever lives and believes in Me(His Life and Teachings both of which He received from Our FATHER and GOD) shall never die"! (John 11:26a; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-messiah-testified-whoever-lives-and.html

And then The Messiah questioned, "Do you believe this"? (John 11:26b)


YES!       And you?       Do you believe?


For such to be, a soul needs be "Born Again" and willing to forsake all that they have. Yes! their own self("I",ego,id,pride)life as well....... (John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, Luke 14:33)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

i believe Mahatma Gandhi was a willing soul who forsook all, and his own life as well! (Additional quotes of Mahatma Gandhi can be viewed @ http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/earth-provides-enough-to-satisfy-every.html)

And such is the desire of my heart!

Yet, "the closer i get, the farther away i REALize i am"!

Thankfully so, for such causes me to REALize evermore how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD i Truly am, and so i "cry unto HIM day and night"....... (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 18:7)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Continually sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-declaration-of-dependence.html

FATHER Help!


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 5:19; 2:15-17, 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 10:17)
