John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress".......

i find it quite revealing that most all of the religions(cults) which declare that they are "catholic" and/or "christian" appreciate John Bunyan's literary work called "Pilgrim's Progress".
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/someone-accused-me-of-being-member-of.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

However when it is mentioned that the first step 'christian' took when he began his "Faith walk", was to leave his natural family behind because they would not take heed unto his words and "walk the walk"?  

Well all of a sudden questions?  And ridicule!  And then denial, as other works of the flesh and fleshly mindedness manifest themselves....... (Galatians 5:17)

And sadly, today the prophetic words of Isaiah 3:12 !RESOUND! midst the perverseness and destruction that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith revealed in James 1:27)

(John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/love-not-world.html

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

The focus, 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 which they call their "christ".......  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/the-messias-which-being-interpreted-is.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 would be the same as The Messiah! (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?

'faith' that is built upon sinking sand.......

(Matthew 7:21-27) The Messiah testified, "Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My FATHER WHO is in Heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in your name,  and in your name cast out demons, and in your name do many mighty works'? Then I will tell them, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work iniquity'!

Yet everyone who hears these words of Mine and DOES THEM, I will liken him unto a wise man who built his house on a rock. And the rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house. And it didn’t fall, for it was grounded on The Rock!

Yet everyone who hears these words of Mine and DOESN'T DO THEM, will be liken unto a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house. And great was the fall of it!” (Matthew 7:21-27)

TRUTH IS! Unless a soul has received "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self("I",ego,id,pride)life, and then were "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT that IS "Our FATHER)(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT)"; they can not comprehend, NOR CAN THEY DO The Words HE gave unto HIS Son The Messiah! (I Corinthians 2:14, II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, John 20:17; 5:19,30)

The Destruction of Creation and The Perversion of That Which IS SPIRIT and TRUTH!

Sadly, what this world and/or religion's way call "progress" IS "progress"ively destroying Creation (air, water, land, vegetation, creatures), and those who follow and believe in the "progress"ive worldly and/or religious ways are perverting that which IS SPIRIT (TRUTH, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Faith, Grace, Hope,,,,, ALL that is Truly GOOD)!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/12/progress-or-progressive-destruction.html

And The CREATOR (FATHER,TRUTH,SPIRIT,GOD,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD) has promised that HE will "destroy those who would destroy the earth (HIS Creation)!" (Revelations 11:18c)

Yet there IS a Living, Lively Hope!

However, such A Hope is not for that which is earthly, natural and temporal.......

Such A Living, Lively Hope IS for that which is Heavenly, Spiritual and Eternal!

"The Lamb of GOD?" and "Prince of Peace?"

Is the pagan catholic and christian 'jesus christ' The Only Begotten Son of "The ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD(SPIRIT) and FATHER(CREATOR) of ALL"? (John 3:16-18; 17:3; 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/08/one-and-only-true-g-d-fathercreator-of.html

Or is he the devil's son in bland disguise,
"imag"ined to make man wonder and less the wise?

Thankfully "The Lamb of GOD!" and "Prince of Peace!" are one in the same,
Yet multiplied billions have been killed or enslaved in 'jesus' name!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/multiplied-billions-killed-and-enslaved.html

Proving that the fruit of death is bore of religion's way,
Because life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play!

Needs? - And/Or - Wants?

Why is it that the True Americans, the indigenous peoples, had 3 (food, clothing, shelter) or so needs, and maybe 30 or so wants; and then, less than 100 years ago the majority of those immigrants in this place called the u.s.a. had 7 or so needs, and maybe 70 or so wants....... 

And today?

Why is it that today, those in the u.s.a (and other worldly nations liken unto them) seem to have more than 70 or so needs, and hundreds of wants?


What is Truly needed?


Further testimony concerning 'religion' and The TRUTH!

The following is a testimony i had given in response to an e-mail i had received, with a few modifications and additions made for the sake of clarity.

i appreciate your responding:

i had believed you would appreciate that which evermore reveals that the pagan catholic and christian 'jesus' is but the "imag"ined son of the devil!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/08/who-is-this-pagan-catholic-and.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-father-of-lies-has-made-his.html

And i wanted to assure you that we were in harmony on that account.

However, what of the brethren of The Messiah, those who have their portion !NOW! in "The Family of Our FATHER and GOD while yet ON EARTH"? (Ephesians 3:15)

"Love Not The World"!

"The Word of TRUTH" simply testified some two thousand years ago: (James 1:18)

(I John 2:15-17) "Love Not The World, neither the things that are in the world! 

For all that is in the world, the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life, is not of Our FATHER and GOD but is of the world! 

And the world will pass away and the lust thereof, but whoever does The Will of Our FATHER and GOD will abide Forever"! (I John 2:15-17)

And TRUTH IS! "The WHOLE world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one”! (I John 5:19, John 7:7)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

.............. "Oh, The Games People Play"! (Isaiah 5:20) ..............

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" (Isaiah 5:20)

 Woe unto them who love this "evil world",
for "the WHOLE world (each and every nation)  is under the control of the evil one!"
(John 7:7, Galatians 1:4, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, II Corinthians 4:4, John 8:44)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/love-not-world.html

So it is, "Whoever would be a friend of this world is the enemy of Our FATHER and GOD"! (James 4:1-4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/whoever-would-be-friend-of-this-world.html

For "The Word of TRUTH" and discernment clearly reveal that
ALL nations are of this evil world! (James 1:18, I John 5:19)

As for calling 'evil, good' and 'good, evil'? (Isaiah 5:20)

Sadly, the "god of this world", he who is “the father of the lies”, has made a game of such!
(II Corinthians 4:4, John 8:44)

The 'GEVID' game!

The ways of this evil world and it's religions are not for the brethren of The Messiah!

The brethren of The Messiah do not follow the ways of this evil world and/or religion(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27), for we but seek and desire to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way" that IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! (John 7:7, James 4:4; 1:27, Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/love-not-world.html

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

And as The Messiah prophesied, so it was that He DID "Come Again" and "QUICKLY" during that time when "the end of the old covenant age" WAS! (Revelations 3:11, )
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/06/i-come-quickly.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/and-then-end-will-come-matthew-2414.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-new-covenant-and-new-covenant-jew.html

Thankfully that which was "decaying and waxing old" DID "vanish away" with the destruction of the natural, earthly, temporal temple realm centered in old jerusalem! Such was the end of the judaic system which consisted of laws, rites, natural temporal things, and all else that had it's portion in religion's way....... (Hebrews 8:13, Mark 9:1, Matthew 24:3, I Thessalonians 4:17-18, James 4:7-8, Jeremiah 31:31-34)

"GOD! If you are a GOD, YOU're a GOD of TRUTH!"

Such was The Revelation i received in the beginning of my Spiritual Journey!

i received that Revelation during a time when i considered myself an agnostic. A time of great trials and suffering, when the only answer seemed to be ending 'my' life.......

And as i agonized and considered such, the integrity of my natural father was revealed, and in that moment i both received and shouted The Revelation i had received out loud:

"GOD! if you are a GOD, YOU're a GOD of TRUTH! For a lie never existed and never will, so i need to abide in The TRUTH"! (Francis 1:1-2)

Such was the first Revelation i received from The ONE WHOM i would come to REALize IS The ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD(SPIRIT) and FATHER(CREATOR) of ALL, HE WHO IS The FATHER and GOD of The Messiah and His brethren! (John 17:3, John 20:17)

THY Kingdom HAS Come! (Luke 17:21)

Pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters all have portions of that which was of The Truth mixed in with their folklore, traditions and theo'ry'logy! And so it is they suck people into the vacuum that is the forever-never-land of, deception, delusion and damnable heresies...... 

That place where lies abide as "imag"ination thrives, and "con"venient speakers have their way with the multitudes! (Romans 16:18; 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

TRUTH IS! Prior to "The Kingdom of Our FATHER and GOD in Heaven" coming, "The Kingdom of GOD's Dear Son WAS"! For "Our FATHER and GOD had raised The Messiah from among the dead". and "The Messiah ascended into Heaven" where He "sat at The Right Hand of Our FATHER and GOD"! 
(Matthew 16:28, Acts 13:30, Acts 1:9-11, Mark 16:19, Colossians 3:1)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/thankfully-new-covenant-is.html

And "The Word of TRUTH" testifies that believers "were translated into The Kingdom of "Our FATHER and GOD's" Dear Son"! (James 1:18, Colossians 1:13)

Who is "Hebrew"?

A root meaning of the word "Hebrew(from the root 'Heber')" is "One from beyond"!

And who was the first one declared to be a Hebrew?


Was it not Abraham? (Genesis 14:13; 17:5)


And was not Abraham "the father (first) of The Faithful! (Romans 4:16, Galatians 3:7)


And was not The Messiah, He Who was born in "the likeness of sinful flesh", both a Jew and a Hebrew? (Romans 8:3)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-messiah-beginning-of-creation-of.html

The NEW Covenant and New Covenant Jew (brethren of The Messiah)! (Jeremiah 31:31-37)

(Jeremiah 31:31-37) "Behold, the days come, says YHVH, that I will make a NEW COVENANT with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: NOT ACCORDING TO THE COVENANT THAT I MADE WITH THEIR FATHERS IN THE TIME THAT I TOOK THEM BY THE HAND TO BRING THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT FOR THEY BROKE THAT COVENANT, although I was an husband unto them, says YHVH!

But this shall be the NEW covenant that I will make with the house of Israel. After those days(of the old covenant) says YHVH, "I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts (not in stone, but on the fleshly tables of their heart), and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be MY people"! ("Come Out of her, My people"! No longer have your portion in, or of this evil world and/or religion's way **except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27**) 
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/05/come-out-of-her-my-people.html

"church", "jesus", and other "buzzwords" of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters!

"church" , rightly called "the assembly(ecclesia)",  "The Family of Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT)", "A Household of Faith", or "The Body of The Messiah"! (Ephesians 3:15, Galatians 6:10, I Corinthians 12:27)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

Yet when the earthly, natural, temporal temple realm centered in old jerusalem was destroyed, "The Body of The Messiah" was taken up in the clouds to forever be with The Messiah and Our FATHER and GOD! (I Thessalonians 4:17)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/and-then-end-will-come-matthew-2414.html

"On Earth Peace, Good Will Toward Men"?

"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly host praising GOD, and saying, "Glory to GOD in The Highest, and ON EARTH PEACE, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN!" (Luke 2:13-14)

Yet the worldly and/or religious souls rejected, and yet reject "The GOOD WILL" of Our FATHER and GOD! HE WHO "gave HIS Only Begotten Son" so that "the world thru Him might be saved"! For they crucified The Messiah, "The Prince of Peace"! And they evermore seek to pervert and deny that which is of "The Word of TRUTH"(which they call their "bible"), for such reveals both The Life example and The Teachings which The Messiah received from Our FATHER and GOD! (John 3:16-17, Isaiah 9:6, II Corinthians 6:7, James 1:18, John 5:19,30, 8:28-29, 20:17) **and it is needful to REALize that "everlasting father" should be translated as Father of Eternity(Eternal Life, The Firstborn from the dead) in Isaiah 9:6**   
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/for-god-so-loved-world-he-gave-his-only.html

Yet Thankfully! "Our FATHER and GOD, HE raised The Messiah from among the dead", and then The Messiah "ascended into Heaven" where He took His rightful place at the right hand of "Our FATHER and GOD"! (Acts 13:30, Romans 4:24, Ephesians 4:10, Colossians 3:1, John 20:17)

January 25, 2017

A portion of my testimony follows.......

Back in '91 i had been in "search of the church"(aka: ecclesia, which i now declare IS "The Family of Our FATHER and GOD") for almost 5 years, and had crisscrossed this place on earth they call the u.s.a. from Vermont to California and Washington to Florida.
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

And during that time i knew in my heart that "Our FATHER(CREATOR) and 
GOD(SPIRIT)" wanted me to give up my vocation(self-employed computer consultant, systems analyst) but i didn't know what i would, or could do, if i did quit. (John 20:17, Proverbs 3:5-6)

However, the experiences while on that journey revealed much and simplicity became a beacon for me. i had left most possessions (which actually possessed me) behind when i began my search in earnest, and i could load all my possessions into the back of a '76 ford courier pickup w/shell.


Then finally, in November of '91 while in Colorado, "i quit"!


It was then that i awoke from the "american dream" and said, "no more" to the

"american (worldly) way". (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4, II Corinthians 6:17, Revelations 18:4)

January 24, 2017

FATHER Help! and HE does.......

Someone had bore witness unto the suffering they were experiencing.

And i responded(with further testimony added):

"To this you have been called, because The Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow in His steps"! (I Peter 2:21, I John 2:6)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/the-messiah-learned-obedience-by-things.html

Yes! "The Messiah suffered for us in the flesh, so arm yourself also with the same mind, for they who have suffered in the flesh have ceased from sin, so that they no longer would live the rest of their time in the flesh serving the lusts of mankind, but doing The Will of Our FATHER and GOD"! (I Peter 4:1-2)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/suffering-long-even-as-our-father-and.html

January 21, 2017

WHO IS The Messiah's FATHER and GOD?

HE WHO IS also The FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT) of The Messiah's brethren! 

"The Messiah said unto her, "Touch Me not, for I am not yet ascended to My FATHER, but go to My brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto My FATHER, and your FATHER, unto My GOD and your GOD." (John 17:3)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/08/one-and-only-true-g-d-fathercreator-of.html

Thankfully "Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT)" indeed and TRUTH! (John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

And "Our FATHER and GOD", HE has no father for "HE IS FATHER of ALL"! (John 20:17, Ephesians 4:6, I Corinthians 8:6)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/08/one-and-only-true-g-d-fathercreator-of.html

And HE has no god for HE IS "The Only TRUE GOD"! (John 17:3)
