'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 the soul 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 are "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT that IS "Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT)"; until then they can not comprehend, NOR CAN THEY DO The Words Our FATHER 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)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.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 is liken unto a summary of that original DISCLAIMER (with modifications for the sake of clarity) which follows:

The testimonies on this blog bear witness unto The TRUTH that all religion(except it be 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 that "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
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/behold-world-is-coming-together-as-one.html

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

The testimonies are posted for revelation, not condemnation of those who currently have their portion in and 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. (I John 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.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(which were of "The Word of TRUTH" {aka: bible}) and "walk the walk"? (Mark 10:28-30, II Corinthians 5:7,  II Thessalonians 2:10-13,  James 1:18, I John 2:6)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/all-so-called-biblical-translations-are.html

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, II Corinthians 1:12, Colossians 2:18, I Peter 2:11)

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) in this day and age!  
(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

My Prayer, "FATHER Help"!

My Prayer, "FATHER Help"!

HE DID!  and HE does.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/miracles-faith-receiving-love-of-truth.html

HalleluYAH!

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 a soul 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/2013/08/who-is-this-pagan-catholic-and.html

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"?

"For yet a little while, and He(The Messiah) that IS Coming, Will Come, and Will Not Tarry!" (Hebrews 10:37)

"Yet a little while"!  (Hebrews 10:37a)

And He(The Messiah) that IS Coming, Will Come, and Will Not Tarry(ie: no delay, or tardiness in acting or doing)"! (Hebrews 10:37b)

And when that which was "decaying and waxing old" DID "vanish away" with the destruction of the natural, earthly, temporal temple realm centered in old jerusalem! It was during that time of "The END" of the old covenant age that The Messiah DID "Come Again" in the clouds, and "QUICKLY" just as He prophesied! (Hebrews 8:13, Revelations 3:11; 22:7,12,20, Luke 21:32, Mark 9:1, Matthew 26:64b, I Thessalonians 4:15-18, John 21:24, Matthew 10:23, I John 2:18,28)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/and-then-end-will-come-matthew-2414.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/06/i-come-quickly.html

And those with "eyes that see" have not only REALized that The Messiah DID "Come Again" and "QUICKLY", but they evermore REALize how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we Truly are! (Rev 3:11, Psalms 70:5, 72:13)

What is Success, and who is Successful?

Simply, "Success" IS of and IN The SPIRIT and IS Life! .......FOREVER....... (John 11:26)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-messiah-testified-whoever-lives-and.html

And it 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(A Prime Example of A Soul Who Was and IS Successful)! The source of such respect being The Spirit of, and in, the quotes attributed to him.......

Some of those quotes (in italics), and (my comments) are; 

“I like your christ, I do not like your christians. Your christians are so unlike your christ"!
(Messiah)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/christianity-is-anti-messiah.html

"There are some standing here !NOW! who will not taste of death!" (Mark 9:1)

"There are some standing here !NOW! who WILL NOT TASTE OF DEATH, until they(Those The Messiah Was Speaking To) have seen The Kingdom Of Our FATHER And GOD Come with Power!" (Mark 9:1, Matthew 16:28, Luke 9:27) 

AND SO IT WAS!


And such is revealed in the testimony that follows:


TRUTH IS! After The Messiah was crucified, and "Our FATHER and GOD raised Him from among the dead", The Messiah ascended into Heaven! And "Our FATHER and GOD gave The Messiah rule and authority over everything in HIS Kingdom. The only exception being HIMSELF(Our FATHER and GOD)!" (John 20:17, Ephesians 4:9-10, I Corinthians 15:15,24-28)

What is "sin"?

For all the natural born jews, and also the "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT Jews(Peter, Paul, John,.etc.) prior to the destruction of the earthly, natural temporal temple realm centered in old jerusalem; "sin was a transgression of the law"....... (John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, I John 3:4)

Yet Thankfully "the letter of the judaic law(each nation of this world, in this day and age, follows the letter of their own law)", and all that which was "decaying and waxing old", DID "vanish away" with the destruction of the natural, earthly, temporal temple realm centered in old jerusalem! For it was then that The Messiah DID "Come Again(in the clouds)" and "QUICKLY", just as He prophesied!
(Hebrews 8:13, Revelations 3:11, 22:7,12,20)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/06/i-come-quickly.html

And The NEW Covenant(for The Born Again children of Our FATHER and GOD) WAS!   And IS   .......Forever.......

"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! 

Prior to that time i considered myself an agnostic, and i was experiencing great trials and suffering. And the only answer seemed to be suicide.......

And as i agonized and considered such i shouted out loud; "HELP! If there is a 'GOD', HELP"! And immediately, the integrity of my natural male parent was revealed; and in that moment i received A Revelation which i also shouted 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"!

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(naturally male or 'fe'male)! (John 17:3, John 20:17)

"Let The Mind (SPIRIT) that was in The Messiah be in you"! (Philippians 2:5)

Someone had commented: "You're not in your right mind!"

And i responded:

All Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER and GOD!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Thankfully no longer "my mind("I", id, ego, self, pride)", but The Mind(SPIRIT) that was IN The Messiah is in me! (I Corinthians 2:16, Philippians 2:5, I Peter 4:1, II Corinthians 5:19, Ephesians 4:23, Galatians 2:20)

HalleluYAH!

"The Messiah learned obedience by the things which He suffered"? (Hebrews 5:8)

"Get understanding!" (Proverbs 4:5-7; 16:16)

The Messiah "learned obedience"? (Hebrews 5:8)

Yes, one could say that "The Messiah learned obedience", because as a child The Messiah subjected Himself unto His natural parents. (Luke 2:43-51)

However, why would The Messiah need to "learn obedience"?

Was He not obedient?

"Let Patience Have Her Perfect Work"....... (James 1:4)

Someone had testified: “I have a terrible, sinful habit of always trying to troubleshoot and solve every problem in my head rather than trusting in the Lord.”

And i responded(with further testimony added):


Yes! “I(ego, id, self, pride)" is a problem, and IS enemy #1....... 

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

So rather than trusting our physical, natural head(mind), we most certainly need to Trust in HIM WHO Created our "head"! HE WHO IS Our FATHER and GOD and HEAD of ALL, Messiah inclusive!

Spiritual Warfare IS!

(II Corinthians 10:3-5) Yet "though we walk in the flesh we do not war after the flesh!

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (fleshly, natural), but Mighty(TRUTH, Faith) through Our FATHER and GOD, to the pulling down of strong holds(Self{"I", ego, id, pride}life, which in TRUTH is no life at all)!

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

Casting down "imag"inations, and every high thing("I",ego,id,self,pride) that exalts itself against the knowledge of Our FATHER and GOD, and bringing every thought into captivity unto obedience, just as The Messiah (The Anointed One) DID!" (II Corinthians 10:3-5, Romans 1:21)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/sadly-imagination-and-interesting-walk.html

(Ephesians 6:10-18) "Finally, be strong in The LORD and in the strength of HIS might!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/sufficiency-is-of-creator-and-his.html

Put on the whole armor of Our FATHER and GOD, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/resist-not-evil-resist-devil.html

"Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil"? (Romans 13:3)

TRUTH IS!  Romans 13:3 DOES NOT bear witness unto worldly rulers in this day and age! 

For TRUTH IS! in this day and age (The NEW Covenant Age WAS, and IS, ever since that moment in time when The Messiah DID "Come Again" and "Quickly" when old jerusalem was destroyed), "The WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one"! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4)

The Light of Life(Spirit) is in the blood!

And The SPIRIT(air, breath,Life) in the blood is The True Gold.......




Thankfully, "Unspeakable", "Unsearchable Riches" are REALized in The Fruit that's bore in a simple and Spiritual Life
 (Love, Joy, Peace, Long-suffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperance, Righteousness, TRUTH, Hope, .etc.); and thankfully The True Riches were revealed in both The Life example and The Teachings of The Messiah! (I Peter 1:8, Ephesians 3:8, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 5:9)

The "bad news" that is the pagan catholic and christian "great commission"!

And The Messiah said unto them, "Go into ALL The WORLD, and PREACH THE GOOD NEWS(Gospel) TO EVERY CREATURE"! (Mark 16:15)

Such is that which pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters call their "great commission".

Yet no more than a generation after "The Messiah ascended into Heaven" Paul bore witness unto The TRUTH that the so-called "great commission" was fulfilled! For he simply testified, "Be not moved away from the Hope of The GOOD NEWS, which you have heard, and WHICH WAS PREACHED TO EVERY CREATURE WHICH IS UNDER HEAVEN"! (Colossians 1:23, Luke 21:32)

The nation called "israel" today is of mankind's "imag"ination!

Someone had testified, "israel is the problem in the middle east"!

And i responded (with further testimony added) :


YES, that nation that calls itself "israel" IS a problem! For i believe the nation of "israel" in this day and age (The New Covenant Age) is but the product of the pagan catholic and christian deception and lies which were formulated to further the 'd'evil's(he who is the god of this world)
 cause! (Hebrews 8:1-13, II Corinthians 4:4)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-father-of-lies-has-made-his.html

Which is to have an "imag"ined pagan catholic and christian version of a messiah (which is one head of their "imag"ined three headed pagan god(s) whom they call 'jesus christ') appear and rule the world. Yet even now those souls bound in the chains of "strong delusion" that are of this evil world and/or religion's way (except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27), they worship and serve "the god of this world" he who is 'd'evil "father of lies"! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, II Corinthians 4:4, John 7:7; 8:44)

"i want to" -OR- "i have to" -OR- "it don't matter to me"?

Do you seek and desire(want) to follow The Messiah on "The Narrow Way"? (Matthew 7:14)

-OR-, are you of those religious souls yet in bondage under the law of  "i have to"?

-OR-, are you of the multitudes who believe "it don't matter to me"?

Those souls who have experienced The Miracle that is receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life, seek and desire(want) that which The Messiah sought and desired above all else! So it is we seek to follow Him on that "Narrow Way" that leads to Real Life !NOW!, and then Thankfully Forever! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, Matthew 7:14, II Corinth 4:10-11, John 10:28; 12:25; 11:25-26)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

"Behold, 'I' thought"! (2 Kings 5:1-14)

(II Kings 5:1-14) "Now Naaman, captain of the army of the king of Aram, was a great man with his master, and highly respected, because by him YHVH had given victory to Aram. The man was also a valiant warrior, but he was a leper.

Now the Arameans had gone out in bands and had taken captive a little girl from the land of Israel, and she waited on Naaman's wife.

She said to her mistress, "I wish that my master were with the prophet who is in Samaria! Then he would cure him of his leprosy."

Naaman went in and told his master, saying, "Thus and thus spoke the girl who is from the land of Israel."

Then the king of Aram said, "Go now, and I will send a letter to the king of Israel." He departed and took with him ten talents of silver and six thousand shekels of gold and ten changes of clothes.

He brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, "And now as this letter comes to you, behold, I have sent Naaman my servant to you, that you may cure him of his leprosy."

"So who’s to say if we will end up destroying ourselves?”

Someone had commented: “Francis, I’d like to think that you’re entirely wrong and that it’s mankind’s imagination that will indeed save the whole of creation. I know we haven’t done a very good job up to now, but even we, in our arrogantly finite, infinitely arrogant wisdom, must surely see we can’t go on as we are. I’d like to say all that, but then, I’m constantly reminded of just what a dumb species we truly are, so who’s to say if we will end up destroying ourselves or not.”

And i responded(with further testimony added):

“dumb species”?

Better said, “disobedient, rebellious, covetous, proud, boastful, vain, perverse, destructive, spiritually dead, braindirtyed, ignorant, arrogant,,,,,, worldly and/or religious clones" who continually seek and desire that which feeds their own fleshly minded vain “imag”inations! So it is the multitudes but follow the "I(ego, id, self, pride)" way, that "broad way that leads to destruction" and perdition! (Romans 10:21; 1:21,28-32, II Corinthians 10:5, Matthew 7:13)
