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

Notice! Google(Of 'D'evil father of LIES!) and their 'AI' are most certainly unreal(Not of The TRUTH)! For they will not allow me to rightly format updates to a postingAnd 'AI' formats links so small they can not be rightly viewed on a "smart phone", even though i had chosen larger links when editing! 
It was revealed that the Hebrew "ELOHIM" is  the right and proper word for The ELOHIM and FATHER of ALL!
For Faithful "Born Again" souls have their portion !NOW! with 'the father of  Faith', Abraham the Hebrew! (Romans 4:9-16)
(Updates to every Testimony will be forthcoming, however it will be quite some time before all Testimonies are updated!)
(Sadly, blogger has no search and change utility that works! Sadder yet google's AI is playing games with this blog!)
(Yet Thankfully FAITH has already won The Victory! HalleluYAH!)

If "The Beginning of Creation" is not understood and REALized, 
then what of that which follows?
   
There are more than 300 testimonies posted on this blog! 

And, "In the beginning Our FATHER and ELOHIM(HIS Right and Proper Hebrew Title/Name in english!) 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 ELOHIM moved upon the face of the waters." (Genesis 1:1-2, John 4:24) (And it needs be REALized that Genesis 1:1-2 bore witness unto 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 ELOHIM 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 "ELOHIM(Hebrew Name!) 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)

Immanuel {for The SPIRIT of ELOHIM was IN Him} The Messiah!

Thankfully, The Fullness of The SPIRIT that IS "Our FATHER and ELOHIM  was IN Immanuel The Messiah, for ELOHIM was seeking to reconcile the world unto HIMself(And The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT That IS Our FATHER And ELOHIM IS IN the "Born Again" brethren{naturally male or 'fe'male} of The Messiah)"! (II Corinthians 5:19, Matthew 1:23, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/questions-concerning-immanuel.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

And TRUTH IS! Yahshua(Which translated into modern english would be Joshua! The same birth name as the one who led the israelites to the earthly promised land}!) was The ELOHIM given Hebrew birth name of The Messiah(the pagan catholic and christian 'jesus' is of the pagan latin 'iesus') in today's english. And He IS "The Only Begotten Son of Our FATHER and ELOHIM", both Spiritually as "The Word of ELOHIM" spoken into being as "The Light" of Genesis 1:3! And physically "in the likeness of sinful flesh", destined to be "The Anointed One(The Messiah)"! (John 3:16, Romans 8:3)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/08/name-of-messiah.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-word-of-god-let-there-be-light.html

And The NEW Covenant Yahshua(Who leads His brethren{naturally male or 'fe'male} on The Way to The TRUTH of The LIFE that IS The Heavenly Promised Land!) WAS Anointed as Immanuel("The Name Above ALL Names", not the pagan catholic and christian 'jesus')
, The Promised Messiah, when The Fullness of The SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and ELOHIM entered into Him as He was immersed in the Jordan river by John The Baptist! (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Philippians 2:9,  John 1:29-34)http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-new-covenant-and-new-covenant-jew.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-name-and-title-of-anointed-one-son.html

The Messiah, “The True Light which enlightens every man born into the world”! (John 1:9)

"Our FATHER(ELOHIM)  said, "Let There Be Light!", and there was Light"....... (Genesis 1:3)

"The Light", "The Glory The Messiah had with Our FATHER before the world began"! (John 1:1-14, 17:5)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-word-of-god-let-there-be-light.html

A Testimony of receiving "a love of The TRUTH"!

The testimony that follows(With further testimony added!) was given in response to a comment someone had posted concerning The TRUTH:

Good Day Dan,

i don't receive a positive comment often, so your comment was very much appreciated.

Is that blog you mentioned your's?

If so, then it most certainly seems that you are a seeker of The TRUTH. 

"Seek and you shall find" indeed! (John 8:32-36, Luke 11:9-10, Matthew 7:7-8)

And it seems you may have already experienced The Miracle that is receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that you might be saved" from your own self("I", ego, id, pride)life. (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

"Religion" was, and - IS - yet needful for "disobedient and gain-saying(contradicting and opposing ELOHIM) souls", who would "rather have a man than ELOHIM speak to and rule over them"!

(Romans 10:21, Acts 7:51, Exodus 20:19, I Samuel 8:4-22)
Further testimony @ Why "religion" was and IS yet needful for the natural man!

Sadly history has revealed, and continues to reveal, that multiplied BILLIONS have been killed or enslaved(In physical chains at times, yet primarily in the chains of strong delusion that are the commandments and doctrines of men!) in the name of the god(s) of this, or that religion! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

Proving the fruit of death and enslavement are bore of religion's way, 
for life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play!

"The WHOLE WORLD(not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one"! (I John 5:19)

Someone had written, "The nations whose population mainly worship other gods, so that nearly the entire population is devil led, those are nations we might call "evil"!  

And i responded(With further testimony and modifications)


Sadly, your own words prove that you have never experienced The Miracle that is receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that you might be saved" from your own self("I", ego, id, pride)life! And your own words also prove that the lies that are of "the god of this evil world(He who is "the father of lies"!)", and/or religion's way(Except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27!) in this day and age! They have bound you in the chains of "strong delusion"! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, II Corinthians 4:4, John 7:7; 8:44, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4; 1:27, Ephesians 3:15, Galatians 6:10)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/they-received-not-love-of-truth-that.html

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

So it is you have your portion with those who call "evil good, and good evil"! (Isaiah 5:20)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2010/11/oh-games-people-play.html

For TRUTH IS! "The WHOLE WORLD(Not just a portion!) - IS - under the control of the evil one"! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17: 5:19, James 4:4)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/love-not-world.html

A simple and Spiritual Life!

i believe a simple and Spiritual Life was revealed in both The Life and The Teachings of The Messiah!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-simpler-life-becomes-more-life.html

And it is needful to REALize that The Messiah received both His Life and His Teachings from "Our FATHER(CREATOR) and ELOHIM(SPIRIT)"! (John 20:17)

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

For The Messiah testified! "I can do nothing of My own self"....... (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/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

And the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah! 

How can we do anything more than "nothing" of our own selves? (Luke 12:26)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

Thankfully The Life and The Teachings of The Messiah revealed that "Narrow Way", which leads a soul on "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! (Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)

!.......FOREVER.......!

HalleluYAH!

How can i be but sad for the braindirtyed?

Brainwashing(?cleansing?) should rather be called braindirtying, for such has it's portion in the "strong delusion" that is of this evil world and/or religion's way in this day and age.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/are-you-braindirtyed-and-bound-in.html

And Hope is there will be those souls who will take the following personally!

Someone had asked, "what is your purpose"?
-------
And i responded(With further testimony added):

Not my "purpose", for back in '93 i was given the unction to reveal the doctrinal heresies, traditions, and folklore of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters! Sadly all such is of their god, he who is 'd'evil "father of lies" and "the god of this evil world"! And i seek to share that which i have "seen(experienced) and heard(received)" concerning such, wherever and whenever possible....... (John 7:7; 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4, I John 1:3)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/catholicism-christianity-and.html

"They hear your words, but they do them not"! (Ezekiel 33:32) As Ezekiel and Israel, so also Mahatma Gandhi and India!

As i awoke one morning a question came to mind, "why is it that more souls won't receive the testimony of Mahatma Gandhi in India"? Not only his words, but especially the life example of his latter years. For in his latter years i believe he sought and desired to follow The Messiah on "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"; for liken unto The Messiah he also lived that which he taught! (John 14:6)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/earth-provides-enough-to-satisfy-every.html

Then i received of "The Word of TRUTH" that bore witness unto "why it is that more souls won't receive the testimony of Mahatma Gandhi in India", and in the rest of the world as well.

(Ezekiel 33:31-32) "And they come unto you as the people come, and they sit before you as MY people, and they hear your words, but they will not do them!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/catholicism-christianity-and.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

For with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goes after their covetousness!

And lo, you are unto them as a very lovely song of one that has a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument. Yet they hear your words, but they will not do them." (Ezekiel 33:31-32)

What to do? Where to go? How to cope?

i had testified a while ago, "i believe it needs be REALized that the most destructive and/or perverse "absolute junk", as you call it, is not the physical "thing" in and of itself. But the destructive and/or perverse thoughts that created, and dictated the use of such a "thing"!

For such "absolute junk" originates in, and emanates from mankind's "imag"ination", and  TRUTH IS mankind's "imag"ination - IS - 'd'evil's(The god of this world!) playground! (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5; 4:4)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/the-nation-that-calls-itself-israel.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/sadly-imagination-and-interesting-walk.html

And so it is mankind's "imag"ination has it's portion in the destruction of Creation(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures), and worse yet in the perversion of that which IS SPIRIT(TRUTH, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Faith, Grace, Hope, Wisdom,,,,,,, ALL that is Truly GOOD)!

"Love Your Enemies"!

Question? Are you a disciple?

Now a disciple is someone who follows the teachings of another. Do you follow the teachings of another or are you "self-disciplined"? 

The Messiah(Who received both His Life and His Teachings from "Our FATHER and ELOHIM!) teaches His disciples to; "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; so that you may be the children of your FATHER, HE WHO is in Heaven!" (John 20:17; 5:19,30; 8:28-29, Matthew 5:44-45a)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

Hope is you seek and desire to be an obedient child of “Our FATHER, HE WHO is in Heaven"? (Luke 11:2, John 20:17)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Someone called me "Crazy" and another called me a "Bot"!

Someone had declared that i was "Crazy" because i testify that the ways of this world and/or religion's way(Except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27!) are of 'd'evil "father of lies". He who is "the god of this world" in this day and age! And another called me a "Bot" because i wouldn't change or add to my testimony....... (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27: 4:4, II Corinthians 4:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

And i responded:

"Crazy(When called such by those souls in and of this evil world and/or religion's way in this day and age{James 4:4})?" 

YES!       HalleluYAH!!!!!!!

"A Bot"? 
Hopefully liken unto such, for i but seek and desire to do both "The Will and Good Pleasure of Our FATHER and ELOHIM"! (CREATOR of ALL! Even those souls who continue to deny and defy HIM)"! (Philippians 2:13, Luke 22:42, John 20:17)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

October 2, 2019

"Faith without works is dead!" (James 2:17)

And TRUTH IS! "It IS ELOHIM WHO works in HIS children both The Will and The Doing of HIS Good Pleasure", just as HE did IN The Messiah....... (Philippians 2:13, John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

For The Messiah testified, "I have not spoken of Myself; but The FATHER WHO sent Me, HE gave Me a commandment; what I should say, and how I should speak." (John 12:49-50; 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16, 14:10, 23-24, 17:8,14)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/our-father-and-god-he-yet-communes-with.html

And The Messiah testified, ”Don’t you believe that I am in The FATHER, and The FATHER in Me? The Words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself, but The FATHER WHO dwells IN Me, HE does The Works." (John 14:10)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

TRUTH IS! The Messiah testified, "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

Can His "Born Again" of "The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT" brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) do anything more of their "own self"? (John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

October 1, 2019

The Messiah testified, "Behold, I COME QUICKLY"!

Someone had commented: "Revelations is ridiculous! "Behold I come quickly"? More than 1900 years is NOT QUICK, and 'jesus' has not yet returned."

And i responded(With further testimony added):

It is the religious and/or worldly souls who are "ridiculous", not Revelations.

Sadly, the multitudes of worldly and/or religious souls continually quote Peter's words, "with The LORD a thousand years is as a day, and a day is as a thousand years". (II Peter 3:8)

Yes, Peter spoke those words unto souls who yet abode in temporal time. Yet he was not referring to The Messiah's "Coming again, and Quickly"! Peter was referring to 'the end of time' "when the elements will melt with a fervent heat"! (II Peter 3:8-13)

Thankfully, The Messiah had testified "Behold I Come Quickly"! And for a human being two thousand years is not "QUICK"! (John 20:17, Revelations 3:11, 22:7,12,20)

September 30, 2019

"The City of The Living ELOHIM, The Heavenly Jerusalem"!

TRUTH IS! The "Born Again" brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah no longer have their portion with those worldly and/or religious souls begotten from the natural womb of a woman, or that which is begotten from "mother earth"! For NEW "Jerusalem which IS above, IS Free and IS !NOW! The Mother of us all(Spiritually "Born Again" son's{naturally male or 'fe'male} of Our FATHER and ELOHIM)"! (John 3:3,7; 20:17, I Peter 1:23, Galatians 4:26)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/being-set-free-from-materialism-and.html

Hebrews 12:22-29: "For you are come unto mount Sion, and unto The City of The Living ELOHIM, the Heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels!

And unto the gathering of the general assembly of the firstborn, which are written in Heaven! And to Our FATHER and ELOHIM The Judge of all; and to the Spirits of just men made perfect.

And to The Messiah, the mediator of The NEW Covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks of better things than that of Abel.

The Latter Years in The Life of Mahatma Gandhi.......

First, needs be that i testify, "i respect Mahatma Gandhi more than any other soul who has received the breath(Spirit/air) of life since i received my first breath in '43"!

The source of such respect, not being that which others have written or shared concerning him, but The Spirit of and in the quotes attributed unto him.
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/earth-provides-enough-to-satisfy-every.html

And in his latter years i believe that Mahatma Gandhi REALized how "compromising" the ways of politics(Governments of this world!) were, and that religion(Except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27!) and politics walked hand in hand along that "broad way to destruction" and perdition! (Matthew 7:13)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

Yet i believe he also REALized that such was needful for "disobedient and gainsaying(contradicting and opposing ELOHIM) people". Those worldly and/or religious souls who would rather have a man than Our FATHER and ELOHIM rule over(politicians/kings/popes), and speak to(clergy/prophets/ evangelists) them! (Romans 10:21, I Timothy 1:9, Exodus 20:19, l Samuel 8:4-21)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

September 28, 2019

"My ELOHIM, My ELOHIM, why have YOU forsaken Me"?

Thankfully the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah will never have to experience the pain and anguish of being forsaken by "Our FATHER(CREATOR) and ELOHIM(HOLY SPIRIT)" as The Messiah did! (Mark 15:34, John 3:16-21; 20:17)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/for-god-so-loved-world-he-gave-his-only.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/08/name-of-messiah.html

For The Messiah gave His Life so that His "Born Again" brethren might receive of The Life! And The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and ELOHIM empowers His brethren, so that liken unto The Messiah they would also "win The Victory over sin and death"........ (John 3:16; 5:24,30,36-37, Romans 5:8: 8:2, I Corinthians 15:3,54-58)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

For Thankfully, "Our FATHER and ELOHIM" sent The Messiah to reveal "The Way(TO) The TRUTH(OF) The Life"! And then, after those souls who were of this evil world and/or religion's way crucified The Messiah, HE raised The Messiah from among the dead! (John 20:17; 14:6, Acts 13:30)

The 1st Day of Creation and John 1:1-5....... Perfect Harmony!

Someone had commented, "I am interested in how you synchronize your doctrine concerning ELOHIM creating The Light with John's version".

And i responded(With further testimony added)
:

Such - IS NOT - "my doctrine"! 

For that which IS of The TRUTH IS SPIRIT and - IS - of "The ELOHIM of TRUTH"! 
(II Thessalonians 2:10-13, Psalms 31:5)

And i believe you are referring to John 1:1-5, and how John's testimony bears witness to The Messiah being "The Light" begotten of "Our FATHER and ELOHIM" the 1st Day of Creation! (Genesis 1:3)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-messiah-beginning-of-creation-of.html

FATHER(ELOHIM/CREATOR) Help!

(John 1:1) "In the beginning was The Word, and The Word was with ELOHIM, and The Word was ELOHIM"!

September 26, 2019

For a "Born Again" child of "Our FATHER and ELOHIM" to be declared "useless" by those who are of this evil world and/or religion's way, is to be "Free, Free indeed"! (John 8:32-36)

i had posted the following reply to a worldly wise soul, "Sadly, it seems all you "know" is that which is of mankind's 'imag'ination", which most certainly IS "knowledge falsely so-called"! (Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5, I Timothy 6:20)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/sadly-imagination-and-interesting-walk.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-father-of-lies-has-made-his.html

And they responded and simply declared that i was "useless"!

Then i responded(With further testimony added in this post)


Yes, USELESS! And i am simply sad for you and all other souls who are bound in the chains of "strong delusion" that cause you to but serve time in the prison that IS this evil world and/or religion's way(Except it be The Active Faith revealed in James 1:27!) in this day and age....... ( II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)
