Zacchaeus...... A "god" of the Covetous!

The following testimony was given in response to an email i received from a community in India.

They had written: "Zacchaeus was forgiven even before he could return all the money that he had cheated because the Lord saw the change in his heart."

And i responded(with modifications and further testimony added):

That's what you believe!

And you are not ashamed?

Sadly, you have not yet REALized that the lies of this evil world and/or religion's way in this day and age(except the Active Faith of James 1:27) have bound you in the chains of "strong delusion"! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17, James 4:4, II Thessalonians 2:10-12)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

"Whoever would be a friend of this world IS the enemy of Our FATHER and GOD!" (James 4:4)

(John 15:18-20) And The Messiah testified, "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
If you were of the world, the world would love you as it's own, but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you!

Remember the word that I said unto you, "The servant is not greater than his Master. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you! If they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also." (John 15:18-20)

Thankfully the brethren of The Messiah are no longer of this evil world for we have REALized that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven"! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4, Philippians 3:20)

Someone had commented, "I would like to respond to your reply, but unfortunately it makes no sense"!

Someone had commented, "I would like to respond to your reply, but unfortunately it makes no sense.  I would appreciate it, if you would respond like a normal person".

And i responded: As for non-sense? 

Such is understandable for you have made it quite clear that "The Word of TRUTH" makes "no sense" to you as well! (Acts 26:25, James 1:18)  

And Thankfully i am not a "normal person", nor do i seek to be what those souls in and of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27 ) would declare to be "normal"!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/miracles-faith-receiving-love-of-truth.html

So it is, that when they call me crazy and/or abnormal? (John 7:7, James 1:27; 4:4, Luke 6:23,26)

There is but ONE LEADER, ONE TEACHER!

Sadly, multitudes follow that "broad way to destruction" as they remain bound in the chains of "strong delusion" that are the heretical doctrines, traditions and folklore of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters! (Matthew 7:13, II Thessalonians 2:10-13)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/07/simply-progress-so-called-is-destroying.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

And so it is that they practice theo'ry'logy, and simply can not 'see' that "each and every biblical translation (the source of their theory) is biased and perverted in accordance with the religious dogma of the translators"......  
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/all-so-called-biblical-translations-are.html

So it is those "colored marks written on a dead tree and bound in fabrication" have become their 'god(s)', as they evermore remain bound in those chains of "strong delusion" that are "the command-ments and doctrines of men and devil's"! Such causes them to but serve time in the prison that IS this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

TRUTH IS! "The Most HIGH does not dwell in churches (temples)"! (Isaiah 66:1, Acts 7:48-51, I Corinthians 6:19)

The following was a testimony given in response to a message i had received from the "arian catholic church (a.k.a. church of the east)".......

You wrote of the "roman catholic church going astray"?


Simply, the pagan roman catholic church never did follow "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life" as revealed in The Life and Teachings of The Messiah! For their "affections have always been set on things here below", for those souls who rule in their "church" "love their own lives in and of this evil world" and their religion's way! (John 14:6, Colossians 3:1-3, John 12:25, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:1-4)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/religions-way-is-anti-messiah.html

And it needs be REALized that The Messiah received both His Life and His Teachings from "Our FATHER and GOD", HE WHO IS "The ONLY TRUE GOD(not the pagan catholic and christian three headed god)
"!
(John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:3)

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 the links and further testimony was added and slight modifications were made)

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", (FYI: they had "Come Out" from among the amish)                    September 10, 1991

"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 paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear Our FATHER and depart from evil." (Proverbs 3:5-7)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/01/is-there-name-or-title-greater-than.html

"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

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

And Thankfully i have experienced The Miracle that IS receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that i might be saved"! For 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)

"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

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(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 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! '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

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)

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 religious souls who read the testimonies i give concerning that which i have "seen(experienced) and heard(received)" regarding religion's way, and/or this evil world, in this day and age....... So it is i 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 had 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)

"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)

February 27, 2017

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!

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
