"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

"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! (John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, I Corinthians 6:19)
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" indeed and TRUTH! (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/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

"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.

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)

"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)

"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)

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)

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!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-foundation-and-beginning-of-world.html

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"!

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(serving Our FATHER and GOD)"!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

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

"The Faithful" rejoice against "reasoning and arguments"! (Hebrews 11:1)

Someone had testified, "You shall achieve what you want. It is faith alone that can bring expansion and responsive consciousness. And doubt brings in sluggishness, a lack of responsiveness and depression. Faith is above reason. If you have faith, all reasoning shall support you. As you believe, so will reasoning and arguments support you".

And i responded:

i am hoping that disagreement will not offend you.......

For "Faith IS the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen", and "Faith wins The Victory over that which is of this evil world"! (Hebrews 11:1, I John 5:4, John 7:7, I John 5:19, James 4:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

So it is that The Faithful rejoice against "reasoning and arguments"! For as "iron floated on water" so also "the sons of Our FATHER and God rise above the beggarly elements (of which are reason and arguments) of this evil world and/or religion's way in this day and age(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)"! (II Kings 6:5-7, II Kings 5:10-14, Luke 24:6, Matthew 14:15-21, Galatians 4:9, John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

"The Family of Our FATHER and GOD"....... "A Living Body"!

Someone had questioned, "Do you participate in organized fellowship with fellow brethren"?

And i responded: "Is Family an organized fellowship -OR- A Living Body"?

And they responded: "Oh.  Humm.  I wouldn't say an organization.  A living body? While alive, "A" would mean one. I would say Family is more like a unit and a government".

i testified: "The "living body" you speak of is of the flesh, fleshly!

And yet, the multitudes would respond as you did. For all so-called "families" in and of this evil world, and/or religion's way (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27), are divided. For each portion of what should be a "unit(united, one)" seeks to "do their own thing"! (John 7:7, Luke 14:26)

And it is quite evident that the prophecy of Isaiah 3:12 is evermore being fulfilled in this day and age.......  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2010/07/women-rule-and-children-oppress-is-312.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?

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 your 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

My Prayer....... FATHER Help! ....... and HE does.......

Someone had asked: "Do you pray in Jesus name or do you pray in your own name?"

And i responded:

If someone prays in the name of the pagan catholic and christian 'jesus (the transliteration of the pagan latin catholic 'iesus'), an "imag"ined name they gave to one head of their "imag"ined three-headed pagan god(s) less than 600 years ago!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/08/name-of-messiah.html

To whom or what are they praying?

Simpy, TRUTH IS when one prays in the name of the "imag"ined 'jesus' they  pray to "the father of lies("imag"ination)", he who is the "god of this evil world" and the author of religion's way in this day and age! (John 8:44, Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5; 4:4, John 7:7, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 1:27; 4:4)

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

And then he questioned: "Do you say The Lord's Prayer"?

February 21, 2017

Your Hope! Eternal or temporal?

The Only True Hope IS in and of that which IS SPIRIT and TRUTH! (John 4:24)

For hope that is but a temporal imitation is in and of one's earthly, natural fleshly desires, and/or circumstances. 

Thankfully A True, Living, Lively Hope IS of The SPIRIT and IS REALity! (I Peter 1:3, Colossians 1:5)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2010/10/hope-of-heaven-for-hope-which-is-laid.html

Not a thought, or a dream; or a shadow; or of one's own vain "imag"inations. (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)

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!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/your-hope-eternal-or-temporal.html

A DISCLAIMER!

There are those who never did read the DISCLAIMER that used to be posted in the left hand column of this blog site, and the current disclaimer in the left hand column of the blog site is liken unto a summary of that original DISCLAIMER. 

The original DISCLAIMER follows:

The testimonies on this blog bear witness unto The TRUTH that all religion (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) is of "the father of lies", he who is "the god of this evil world"! And TRUTH IS "the WHOLE world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one"! (John 8:44; 15:19-20, II Corinthians 4:4, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 4:4, John 7:7)    http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

February 19, 2017

There IS Only One TRUE GURU(aka: MASTER, TEACHER)!

First it needs be REALized that Faith will not create a religion, for The Faithful ARE Family! The Family of Our FATHER and GOD", "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named! (James 1:27, Ephesians 3:15)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

And it needs be REALized that The Faithful yet on earth have their portion !NOW! in "The Household of Faith"! For our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven, and thankfully soon and very soon we will be taken Home, Home at last....... (Galatians 6:10, Philippians 3:20, John 14:1-3)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/home-home-at-last-john-141-3.html

Till then, we choose to remain but "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth" evermore REALizing how Truly "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we are! (Hebrews 8:13, I Peter 2:11, Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 18:7)

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

And TRUTH IS! "Our FATHER" HE IS The Only TRUE GOD and MASTER(GURU) of ALL! John 17:3; 12:49; 14:10,28)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/one-in-spirit-with-our-father-and-god.html
