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

Someone had testified that i had a "voracious appetite"!

And i responded(with further testimony added)

"If i do have a  "voracious appetite" such is for The TRUTH"! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/a-testimony-of-receiving-love-of-truth.html

That which you and other souls who are in and of this evil world, and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27), yet seek to crucify....... (Mathew 23, John 7:7, James 1:27: 4:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

Yet Thankfully that which IS of The TRUTH can not be crucified, for that which IS of The TRUTH WILL ALWAYS RISE AGAIN! (Acts 13:26-30)

HalleluYAH!

A worldly soul had written of the need to be "self-reliant"!

"Self("I", ego, id, pride)reliant"?
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

TRUTH IS! "Self-reliance" and/or "Self-sufficiency" both have their portion in and of "the father of lies", he who is the "god of this evil world" and religion's way(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27in this day and age! (John 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4)

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

For TRUTH IS! As The Messiah testified, so also have His brethren REALized "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)

Philosophy is of the mind of man! Mankind's "imag"ination, reasoning and logic.......

The following is a testimony i gave in response to a Hindu believer who was of those who believe philosophy is a good thing.

Philosophy is of the mind of man; his "imag"ination, reasoning and logic! And/or his lack of understanding concerning that which he has experienced.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/thoughts-philosophy-and-religion-cause.html

For TRUTH IS! "If any man thinks he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know"!  (I Corinthians 8:2)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html

Simply, philosophy has it's portion in "the wisdom of this world" and "knowledge(aka: science), falsely so-called"; both of which "are but foolishness unto Our FATHER and GOD"! (I Corinthians 1:20; 3:19, II Corinthians 1:1, I Timothy 6:20)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/our-father-and-god-considers-wisdom-of.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/knowledge-falsely-so-called-i-timothy.html

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

Being set free from materialism and inordinate desires!

Someone testified, "We are much too materialistic now and our desires cause us to seek ever more."

And i responded(with further testimony added):

Sadly, for the multitudes it is so!

Yet TRUTH IS! Such needs not be.......

Hopefully there will be those who REALize that to be of the "we" who are of this evil world and/or religion's way(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age, is to be of those who are destroying Creation(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which IS SPIRIT(TRUTH, Light, Life, Peace, Ahimsa, Love, Faith, Grace, Wisdom,,,,,,, ALL that IS Truly GOOD)!

"One IN SPIRIT with Our FATHER and GOD"! Yet, "Our FATHER and GOD, HE IS Greater Than ALL"! (John 14:28)

Someone had commented, "If man says, God can not be the Son, because the FATHER called the Son, Son! And also by saying the FATHER is One and the Son is Another One, and One and One adds up to TWO! Man simply limits God!"

And i responded(with further testimony added):

Yes! "One and one adds up to two", you have that part right.

As for limiting Our FATHER and GOD? (John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Sadly, you have done so!

"The Messiah answered them, "Is it not written in your law, I(Our FATHER and GOD) said, You are gods"! If HE (Our FATHER and GOD) called them gods, unto whom The Word of GOD came. And The Scripture cannot be broken! How can you say of Him(The Messiah), Whom Our FATHER and GOD has sanctified, and sent into the world, "You blaspheme! Because I said, I am The Son of GOD"....... (John 10:34-36, Genesis 6:2,4, Job 2:8, 31:7, John 1:12, Philippians 2:15 etc.....)

Considering A LIE opens the door and allows temptation to enter in.......

Considering A LIE, rather than taking heed unto The Word of Our FATHER and GOD, is that which opened, and yet opens the door that allows temptation to enter in! (Genesis 3:1-6)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

Genesis 3:1-6 "Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which YHVH God had made. And the serpent said unto the woman, "has GOD said, you shall not eat of every tree in the garden(a right response would have been Yes!)?

Yet the woman said unto the serpent, "we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, GOD has said, "You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it(her words not GOD's Word), lest you die"! (Proverbs 10:19)

November 15, 2017

Someone in India had testified, "May GOD bless us with wisdom so that we can turn into true Human beings!"

"True Human beings"?

"All things that you would have others do to you, do you even so unto them". 
(Matthew 7:12)

"And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise". 
(Luke 6:31)

"Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth".
(I Corinthians 10:24)

Yet sadly, the perverse and covetous worldly and/or religious souls(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) use and abuse "The Word of TRUTH(which those of this world and/or religion's way call their 'bible")" as they wrest The Scriptures unto their own destruction! (James 1:18, Psalms 56:5; 119:43, II Peter 3:16)

The Foundation of the world that was, and the evil world that IS! (Genesis 3, I John 2:15-17)

The Foundation, the beginning of the world that was and the evil world that is, IS The LIE! 
(Genesis 3:1-8, John 7:7; 8:44)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/05/come-out-of-her-my-people.html

For "the serpent said to the wo-man, "You will not surely die"!(Genesis 3:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

"And when the wo-man SAW that the tree was good for FOOD(the lust of the flesh), and that it was PLEASING to the eyes(the lust of the eye), and a tree to be desired to MAKE ONE WISE(the pride of life{"I",ego,id,self}), she took of the fruit thereof and ate, and she gave of the fruit to her husband with her, and he did eat." (Genesis 3:6, I John 2:15-17)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

And such was the beginning of the world that was, a world that was ultimately destroyed by a "flood", wherein only eight souls and the animals on Noah's Ark were saved"!

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

Back in '91 i had been in "search of the church"(aka: ecclesia, which i now testify 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 "stuff"(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)

"i want more of GOD and less of religion and politics"!

Someone had commented, "i want more of GOD and less of religion and politics! For
religions, especially organized religions, are man-made and are highly POLITICIZED!"

And i responded(with further testimony added):

YES!  And Mahatma Gandhi also REALized such when he testified, "whoever believes that religion has nothing to do with politics does not know what religion is"! And he also testified, "GOD has no religion".......  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/earth-provides-enough-to-satisfy-every.html

Yet TRUTH IS! "Religion and government(politics) were and are yet needful, for "disobedient and gain-saying(contradicting and opposing GOD) people", those souls who are "stiff-necked and uncircumcised of heart and ears"! (Romans 10:21, Acts 7:51)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

Needful for those worldly and/or religious souls who would rather have a man(Moses, Samuel, etc.) than Our FATHER and GOD speak to them, and those who would rather have a man(Saul, David, etc.) than Our FATHER and GOD rule over them! (Exodus 20:19, l Samuel 8:4-21, John 20:17; 14:28)

​Thankfully TRUTH IS! So Victory IS assured....... (I Esdras 3:10-4:41)

For TRUTH IS The Strongest Thing in, yet not of, the world! (I Esdras 3:10-4:41)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/the-strongest-thing-in-world.html

Someone had commented, "Let us see who is living in their imaginations. Time will decide and the ultimate winner is truth."

And i responded(with further testimony added):

Your 'vision' is a bit distorted, more than likely because of your love for your own self("I",id, ego, pride)life; and/or your love for this evil world and/or it's things; and/or religion's way(For The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27 is the only "Pure Religion and Undefiled") in this day and age! (Luke 9:23-24, I John 2:15-17, James 1:27; 4:4)    
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html


For TRUTH IS! Faith HAS ALREADY WON The VICTORY over sin and death; this world and it's things; and religion's way in this day and age! (I John 5:4; 5:19, James 1:27, I Peter 1:17-21)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

Because of religion's way, "The Way of TRUTH is evil spoken of"! (II Peter 2:2-3)

Someone had testified, "I take it you don't like the Mother of God? I wonder what happens on judgement day to those who say, "I treated your mother like dirt, with contention, lies, and dishonor" compared to those who say "with truth and integrity I loved and honored your mother as if she were my own"? Which of these two does your god condemn"?

And i responded(with further testimony added): 


The Messiah testified, "Who is My mother, or My brethren?  
And He looked round about on them which sat about Him, and said, Behold My mother and My brethren! For whosoever shall do The Will of GOD, the same is My brother, and My sister, and mother!" (Mark 3:33-35)

Sadly, you continue to prove yourself to be but a "con"venient speaker who with "good sounding words and fair speeches evermore seeks to deceive the hearts of the simple"! (Romans 16:18)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/the-way-of-lies-that-gender-death-john.html

Simply i abhor paganism and witchcraft, both of which have their portion in and of The LIES that are of "the god 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! And especially the pagan catholic and christian ways of perversion, distortion, 'con'fusion, theo'ry'logy and every evil work! (II Corinthians 4:4, John 7:7: 8:44, James 1:27; 4:4, II Timothy 4:18)

"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)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-new-covenant-and-new-covenant-jew.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

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

November 3, 2017

The Messiah testified, "The world does not hate you, but the world hates Me......." (John 7:7)

As The Messiah testified, so it is that i also testify, "the world does not hate you, but the world hates me", for i have been given the unction to testify that "the works (philosophy, education, technology, media, busyness, destruction, perversion, politics,,,,,,) 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 are EVIL"! (John 7:7, James 1:27; 4:4, Matthew 23:13-33)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/love-not-world.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/how-can-i-be-but-sad-for-braindirtyed.html

So it is, "Whoever would be a friend of this world is the enemy of Our FATHER and GOD", for "The WHOLE world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one"....... (James 4:4, I John 5:19)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/whoever-would-be-friend-of-this-world.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

And most certainly things are getting 'progress'ively worse and worse, just as was prophesied, for "evil men and seducers ARE waxing worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived"! (II Timothy 3:13)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

What Truly Matters?

Most certainly not that which is 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....... And most certainly not that which is of mankind's "imag"ination!
(John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4, Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)   
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/religion-is-way-of-this-wicked-world.html

Simply, The TRUTH IS! that which Truly matters....... (John 14:6, II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

For The TRUTH IS, WAS and ALWAYS WILL BE! 

And as ALL that IS Truly GOOD(breath,air); The TRUTH IS SPIRIT and needs be received! (John 14:17; 15:26; 16:13, I John 4:6, II Thessalonians 2:10-13)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/06/religion-is-of-father-of-lies.html

October 31, 2017

My intent is not to "parry and thrust" in a debate or discussion, for Experience and Revelation ARE!

And Thankfully, "Our FATHER and GOD(HE WHO IS SPIRIT) works in HIS "Born Again" children both The Will and The Doing of HIS Good Pleasure"! (John 20:17; 4:24; 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, Philippians 2:13)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

So it is, the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah are to share that which we have "seen(experienced) and heard(received) so that we might have Fellowship"! (I John 1:3)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

Evermore seeking and desiring that which The Messiah sought and desired above ALL else: 


"FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

Yes! Such needs be sought and desired more than this natural life itself! For "Our FATHER and GOD", HE knows what is best for HIS "Born Again" children! For HE IS Author of The Forever Life! (Luke 14:25-33)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Sadly, the atomic bomb proves the "best" that mankind can do!

Someone had testified, "Humans are a tiny evolution from those powerful natures.  Nature consists of great energies. Such energies cannot be created or destroyed by humans. The best they can do is to change them from one to the other........

And i responded(with further testimony added):

Sadly, the atomic(nuclear) bombs and missiles of various types and sizes have proven the "best" that mankind can do!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/07/simply-progress-so-called-is-destroying.html

And destruction breeds perversion and "every evil work", and perversion and "every evil work" breeds destruction! Yet Thankfully TRUTH IS, "The LORD will deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto HIS Heavenly Kingdom: to WHOM be Glory Forever and Ever, Amen......." 
(II Timothy 4:18)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/12/progress-or-progressive-destruction.html
