Philosophical Renderings -OR- Experiential knowledge?

Someone testified, "Hindu philosophy is the longest surviving philosophical tradition in India. We can recognize several historical stages. The earliest, from around 700 BC!"

And i responded (with further testimony added):

Yes! "Hindu" is rightly recognized as a "philosophy".......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/philosophy-is-of-mind-of-man-mankinds.html

For Thankfully i have experienced The Miracle that IS receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that i might be saved"! And TRUTH IS, "experiential knowledge trumps philosophical renderings"! For "words are cheap", yet "experience is priceless"....... (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, Romans 5:2-5, Isaiah 55:1)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/05/my-testimony-of-receiving-love-of-truth.html

Multiplied Billions Killed -OR- Enslaved!


Killed in innumerable wars and acts of violence, and enslaved and bound in physical chains at times; yet primarily in the chains of "strong delusion" that are the commandments and heretical doctrines of theo'ry'logical men! Those lost souls who have never received a "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life! (II Thessalonians 2:8-12)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

And the violence and perversion in this day and age evermore proves that:

The fruit of death and enslavement are bore of this evil world and religion's way, 
for life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

"Women Rule Over, and Children Oppress Men"! (Isaiah 3:12)

i had responded to a testimony someone had written: "You can make almost anything 'sound good' John, yet that which sounds good to the natural man is, more often than not, naught but "strong delusion". (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

Having been where you are, emotionally and spiritually, i know that the only Way to Healing is The TRUTH! Not as we want it, but as The TRUTH IS! And, oh how the pain seems unbearable at times. Yet "The Comforter" is there and that which "The Comforter" reveals of Heavenly Things helps a soul keep their "affections set on things above", so that "the lust of the of eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life" will not enter into the heart of a man and accomplish their task of perverting, subverting or massaging The TRUTH. Coloring anything grey is no longer the way of such a soul! (John 14:16, Colossians 3:1-3, I John 2:15-17)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/set-your-affection-on-things-above.html

FATHER Help!

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

To: "A Community of Believers"!

i believed in my heart that "Our FATHER" wanted me to post this letter i had written more than twenty-five years ago. And then i believe that HE helped me find a copy of the letter. (In this posting links and further testimony were added, and slight modifications were made)

FATHER Help!

HE DID!       and HE does.......

To: “A Community of Believers",  (FYI: they had "Come Out" from among the amish but yet lived a simple life)

"Trust in Our FATHER with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge HIM, and HE shall direct your path. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear Our FATHER and depart from evil." (Proverbs 3:5-7)

"Oh FATHER, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps. Oh FATHER, correct me, but with justice! Not in YOUR anger, lest YOU bring me to nothing." (Jeremiah 10:23-24)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html

The 1st Day of Creation! (Genesis 1:3-5)

If "The Beginning" is not understood and REALized, then what of that which follows?

"In the beginning Our FATHER and GOD created The Heavens and the earth, and the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And The SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and GOD moved upon the face of the waters." (Genesis 1:1-2, John 4:24)
**And it needs be REALized that Genesis 1:1-2 was liken unto a preview of that which was to follow, for The Heavens were not Created until the 2nd Day of Creation. (Genesis 1:6-8) ....... And the earth was not Created until the 3rd Day! (Genesis 1:9-13)**

And The 1st Day of Creation Our FATHER and GOD spoke HIS Word(The TRUTH, Logos) into being!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/god-is-spirit-is-creator-is-life-is-all.html

For "GOD said "Let There Be Light", and there was Light"....... (Genesis 1:3)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-word-of-god-let-there-be-light.html

And it needs be REALized that The 'Light' created The 1st Day was not the natural light of the sun, moon or stars, for they were not created until The 4th Day. (Genesis 1:14-19)

"The Body of The Messiah" has already been "raptured"!

And it could be simply stated that those brethren of The Messiah, who physically yet abide on the earth have also been "raptured (taken up in the clouds)"! For as Born Again Spiritual sons(naturally male or 'fe'male) of Our FATHER and GOD, the New Life we have received IS SPIRIT! Yet we continue to abide in our fleshly, temporal, earthly temple that Thankfully(For those who have been Truly "Born Again") soon, and very soon, will be no more for those souls who "continue in The Faith grounded and settled"! (John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, I Corinthians 6:19, Colossians 1:23)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

Till then? Thankfully we have REALized that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven"!
(Philippians 3:20)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/home-home-at-last-john-141-3.html

For our New Life IS wholly(holy) in and of The Spirit and TRUTH!  (John 6:63, Romans 8:1-18)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html

So it is we choose to remain but "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth"! (Hebrew 11:13, I Peter 2:11)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/are-you-alien-and-pilgrim-while-on-earth.html

"Suffering long", even as "Our FATHER and GOD suffers long with us".......

Thankfully, "Our FATHER and GOD" is not a "dictator", nor did HE create robots or clones! (John 20:17)

So it is HE "suffers long" with HIS children for HE IS LOVE! (I John 4:8, I Corinthians 13:4)


And the children of Our FATHER and GOD are to "count it all JOY when we experience various trials(aka: temptation, suffering, tribulation)! (James 1:2)


For TRUTH IS! "The trying of our Faith genders Patience. So let Patience have her perfect work, that you may be Perfected and complete, wanting nothing"....... (James 1:3-4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/let-patience-have-her-perfect-work.html

Yet at times, when experience has caused me to once again REALize evermore how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD i Truly am, i have cried out in weakness "Make Me A Robot"! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 18:7)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html


The Name and Title of The Anointed One! The "Son of Our FATHER and GOD", and "Son of man"!

Someone stated "same Word, same Christ", regarding my use of the word "Messiah" rather than the bastardized pagan greek version that is "christ"! 

And then they questioned, "Do you disagree"?

And i responded(with further testimony added):

Yes! For "christ" is but the bastardized version of the pagan greek "christos", and most certainly has it's portion with the pagan catholic and christian 'jesus'! For TRUTH IS! For 'jesus' is but the transliteration of the pagan latin "iesus"!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/08/name-of-messiah.html

Yet the pagan latin 'jesus' and the pagan greek "christ" are most certainly a right and proper name and title for one head of the "imag"ined three headed pagan god(s) of pagan catholicism and most all of her harlot christian daughters!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/08/who-is-this-pagan-catholic-and.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/catholicism-christianity-and.html

July 27, 2017

Sadly, most souls don't REALize who their Father IS!

Yet TRUTH IS! Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT), HE IS The CREATOR(FATHER) of ALL! (John 20:17, Ephesians 3:19, Revelations 4:11)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

And HE has no father, for HE IS FATHER(CREATOR) OF ALL.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/call-no-man-your-father-upon-earth.html

And HE has no god, for HE IS The Only True GOD(SPIRIT)....... (John 17:3)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/08/one-and-only-true-g-d-fathercreator-of.html

And Our FATHER and GOD Created the Heavens, the earth and ALL things therein; of, by, and thru "HIS Word", which IS "The Light" that was "The Beginning of HIS Creation"! (Genesis 1:3, Ephesians 3:9, Revelations 19:13; 3:14, John 1:6-9, Colossians 1:15)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-messiah-beginning-of-creation-of.html

TRUTH IS! "The Light" was "The Word" Begotten of "Our FATHER and GOD"! (John 1:1-14, Revelations 19:13) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/08/messiah-true-light-which-enlightens.html

Actually "god" is a generic term and of pagan origin!

Someone had commented concerning a posting i had made, "Oh Boy!! Another religious nut. Which God are you about today"?

And i responded(with further testimony added):

Sadly such a statement reveals but another worldly and/or religious clone.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/behold-world-is-coming-together-as-one.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

Actually "god" is a generic word and of pagan origin! Yet because of religion's way i use that word so as not to offend and/or confuse the worldly and/or religious souls who read the testimonies i give concerning that which i have "seen(experienced) and heard(received)" regarding this evil world and religion's way in this day and age....... So it is i but share that which i believe i have received from "Our FATHER", HE WHO IS SPIRIT and TRUTH! (I John 1:3, John 4:24; 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/miracles-faith-receiving-love-of-truth.html

For i have been given the unction by Our FATHER(CREATOR), HE WHO IS FATHER(CREATOR) of ALL, to share that which i have "seen (experienced) and heard (received)! Yes, such is needful to share with all the worldly and/or religious souls, who liken unto you continue to deny and defy HIM....... HE WHO IS The CREATOR(FATHER) of ALL! (John 20:17, Acts 4:20, I John 4:3, Ephesians 3:9)

July 26, 2017

Is There A Name or Title Greater Than "FATHER"? HE WHO IS "Our FATHER and GOD"!

Was not the focus of The Messiah on His FATHER and GOD? HE WHO IS "Our FATHER and GOD"! (Genesis 1:3, John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14; 20:17)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

And did not The Messiah testify "I can do nothing of My own self"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

And did He not 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

TRUTH IS! Your "Family Tree" Does Make A Difference.......

Someone had testified,  "Your Family Is Your Enemy"!

And i responded(with additional testimony added):

Yes! a souls natural earthly family can be their "enemy"....... (Matthew 10:34-39)

Question is, "Whose Family Are You Of"?

Thankfully it is a Miracle and a Blessing indeed to be a "Born Again" soul who has their portion !NOW! in The Family of "Our FATHER and GOD"! (John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, John 20:17, Ephesians 3:15)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

And Our FATHER needs not rule with an "iron hand"(yet chastening at times is needful for HIS children yet on earth), for in The Family of Our FATHER and GOD, from the youngest to the oldest, each and every soul has REALized that HE knows what is best for HIS children.......

HalleluYAH!

"religion" is the way of this "evil world"!

Someone had written, "How are we ever going to improve things with the culture and lifestyles we are so entrenched in?"

And i responded(with further testimony added):

Why is it that so many questions are asked? And concerns shared? When the questions were answered and the concerns addressed some two thousand years ago!

Question IS,  "why is it that it seems few, few indeed, will take heed and listen"? (Jeremiah 5:21, Romans 11:8)

"When you pray......."

(Matthew 6:5-8) The Messiah testified, "When you pray don't be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.

Truly I say unto you, they have their reward.

But when you pray enter into your secret place! And when you have shut the door, pray to your FATHER WHO is in every secret place, and your FATHER WHO hears you in secret, shall reward you openly.

And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen(gentiles) do, for they think that they shall be heard if they speak many words.

Those in and of this evil world and/or religion's way abide in The LIE! (Genesis 3:4, John 7:7; 12:25, James 1:27; 4:4)

For TRUTH IS!  "The WHOLE world(not just a portion) IS under the control of the evil one", and there IS Only One "Pure Religion And Undefiled"! (I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 1:27; 4:4)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

Someone had questioned, "As for Eve, may i ask you, do you see Eve eating the fruit, or is it an analogy for her doing something more?"

And i responded:

No more was needful. For Eve was the first to sin and The 2nd CREATION Account bore witness of IN Genesis 2:4-24 revealed her sin. And her sin revealed the root(s) of all sin!

A response to the "strong delusion" that is the "hare krishna" religion (aka: cult)!

Someone who is of the "hare krishna" religion testified: "There is difference between religion and nature. A nature of a living being is to serve. One thing is 'dharma' and another is 'religion'. Both do not convey the same meaning. We do not find any other word in English, so we use word 'religion'. In the Oxford dictionary the meaning of religion is, 'A system of faith, especially personal. God entitled to obedience.' Therefore the word 'religion' is not a proper translation of the word 'dharma'. We should understand it very well that performing rituals alone is not dharma."

And i responded(with further testimony added)
:


Alright, i will agree with you that the english word "religion" does not bespeak of "hare krishna". Yet a right and proper word in english would be "cult"!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/someone-accused-me-of-being-member-of.html

For TRUTH IS! There IS Only One "Pure Religion(self {"I",ego,id,pride} denial) And Undefiled(The Doing of The Will and Good Pleasure of Our FATHER and GOD)" before Our FATHER and GOD)! (James 1:27, Luke 22:42, Philippians 2:13)

The "I(ego,id,self,pride)" Must Die for The Life to Be!

And in as much as i can 'see',
That which is of the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" in me,

So it is i yearn, and to Our FATHER cry,
For deliverance from all that is of the "I".

The "I", born of "imag"ination and selfish desire,
As lust, greed, and pride, stoked a consuming fire!

A fire burning out of control, as "I" leads the way,
It's smoke concealing the fleshly mind that leads one astray.

Yet even in the smoke, searing heat, and blindness of 'sight',
TRUTH can pierce that blackness of darkness, revealing "The Light"!

"GOD gave them up unto uncleanness......." (Romans 1:24)

Romans 1:24-28; "Therefore Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT) gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.

Who changed The TRUTH of GOD into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than The CREATOR, WHO IS BLESSED FOREVER! Amen.

For this cause Our FATHER and GOD gave them up unto vile affections, for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain GOD in their knowledge, GOD gave them over to a reprobate(#96) mind, to do those things which are not convenient"! (Romans 1:24-28)

"Stop visiting sacred name cult websites"!

Someone exhorted me to, "Stop visiting sacred name cult websites, for there's no such name as Yahshua in the Hebrew language"!

And i responded:

Didn't say there was, yet such is a right and proper english name! For both Joshua(in today's english language) of the old covenant and The Messiah were given the same Hebrew birth name and proof of such will be manifest later in this testimony and @ 
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/08/name-of-messiah.html

And i have no desire to visit "sacred name websites", except for using that which they  have published to expose them for what they Truly are! For ALL religions (except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) "are cults"!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/08/a-multiple-choice-of-pagan-catholic-and.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

And Yes! Atheism is a religious "cult" as well, for atheists see their version of a 'god("I",ego,id,self,pride)' each and every time they view their reflected "image"!

Thankfully "Tribulation Begets Patience"! (Romans 5:3)

Life seems so easy when you're up on the mountain,
And you have peace of mind like you've never known.

But then things change, and you're down in the valley,
Just keep The Faith for you're never alone!

For The GOD of the mountain, is still GOD in the valley,
The GOD of the day, is still GOD in the night!

The GOD of the good times, is still GOD in the bad times,
When things(seem to) go wrong, HE can make them right!
And Thankfully, "Tribulation begets Patience, and Patience begets Experience, and Experience begets Hope"! (Romans 5:3b-4)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2010/10/hope-of-heaven-for-hope-which-is-laid.html

Why "Free Will(Choice)"?

TRUTH IS! Apart from "free will(choice)" no soul would finally REALize how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we Truly are! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, John 8:28-29, Luke 18:7)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/father-help-and-he-does.html

For if there was no "free will(choice)" there would be no "brethren
(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah", only robotic like clones!

Thankfully the brethren of The Messiah, those "aliens and pilgrims while yet on the earth", evermore REALize that liken unto The Messiah, so also "i can do nothing of my own self".......
(John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)  
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/are-you-alien-and-pilgrim-while-on-earth.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

For the fruit of "free will(choice)" does work in the hearts and minds of The Faithful, those who have REALized how "poor and in need" of "Our FATHER and GOD" we Truly are! For only when we also began to REALize "i can do nothing of my own self" did we begin to Truly seek and desire to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way" that IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)

"FATHER, not My will, But THY Will Be Done"!

The focus, the focal point of pagan "catholicism", and the more than 30,000(according to statistical data) systems of religion that declare themselves to be "christian" is their version of a messiah which they call their "christ".......  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/the-messias-which-being-interpreted-is.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-name-and-title-of-anointed-one-son.html

Yet it seems the focus, the focal point and the desire of those who seek to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way", that IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! It seems their focal point and desire should be the same as The Messiah's focal point and desire! (Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-center-focal-point-of-catholicism.html

And The Messiah's focal point and desire?

July 18, 2017

"For GOD so loved the world, HE gave HIS only begotten Son"!

Ignore the date and time of this post! Such was needful to 'pin' this post to the top of the blog.
Yet the focal point of pagan "catholicism", and the more than 30,000 systems of religion that declare
 themselves to be "christian"(according to statistical data), is their version of a messiah they call 'christ'!
Should not the focal point and desire of those who seek to follow The Messiah on that"Narrow Way"
(That IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life") be the same focal point and desire that The Messiah had?
The Messiah's focal point and desire is revealed @ "FATHER, not My will, But THY Will Be Done"!

July 1, 2017

The Messiah, 'The Light' that was 'The Beginning of Creation'!

Ignore the date and time of the post for such was needful to pin this post to the top of the blog:
"The Messiah abides Forever, so how can you say, 
'The Son of man' must be lifted up? WHO is this 'Son of man'?
(John 12:34)  
Link to: The Name and Title of "The Son of GOD" and "Son of man"!
 Then The Messiah answered them,
yet a little while IS The Light with you"!
(John 12:35, Genesis 1:3)
