Who is your "Father"?

The Messiah testified, "Call no man your father upon the earth! For ONE is your FATHER(CREATOR), HE WHO IS in Heaven"! (Matthew 23:9)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/call-no-man-your-father-upon-earth.html

Sadly, there are multitudes of worldly and/or religious souls who don't know who their father IS, both naturally and/or Spiritually! (John 7:7, James 1:27; 4:4, Matthew 7:13-14)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/08/one-and-only-true-g-d-fathercreator-of.html

So it is they have their portion in and of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith revealed in James 1:27) as they follow "the god of this world(the devil and pied piper of progress{falsely so-called})" along that "broad way to destruction" and perdition....... (John 7:7, James 1:27; 4:4, II Corinthians 4:4, Matthew 7:13-14)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

Sadly they abide in their own vain "imag"inations as they evermore deny and defy The TRUTH that bears witness unto "Our FATHER and GOD", HE WHO IS The CREATOR of ALL(YES! The Messiah also! And those souls who continue to deny and defy HIM)! (Matthew 7:13-14, John 7:7, James 1:27; 4:4, Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5, John 20:17, Revelations 4:11, Ephesians 4:6, Psalms 31:5)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/truth-is-and-is-not-multiple-choice.html

Believing is in the receiving and the doing, not thinking!

Believing is in the receiving, and then the doing of "The Will and GOOD Pleasure of Our FATHER and GOD", not the doing of one's own thoughts(vain "imag"inations)! (Luke 22:42, Philippians 2:13, Romans 1:21, II Corinthians 10:5)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/sadly-imagination-and-interesting-walk.html

Yet for such to be, a soul needs "receive a love of The TRUTH to be saved" from their own self("I", ego, id, pride)ish vain "imag"inations! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

The TRUTH which testifies, that liken unto The Messiah so also have His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) 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)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

Yet, "Behold 'I(ego,id,self,pride)' thought" is a problem common to all mankind! (II Kings 5:1-14)

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 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

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 a 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(The Doing of The Will and Good Pleasure of Our FATHER and GOD) before Our FATHER and GOD)"! (James 1:27, Luke 22:42, Philippians 2:13)

"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

HalleluYAH!

So it is that The Faithful rejoice against "reasoning and arguments"! For as "iron floated on water" so also the children 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)

A DISCLAIMER!

i believe there are those souls who never did read the DISCLAIMER that had been posted in the left hand column of this blog site, and the current disclaimer is liken unto a summary of that original DISCLAIMER which follows(with modifications for the sake of clarity):

The testimonies on this blog bear witness unto The TRUTH that all religions(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) are 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). (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!

September 17, 2018

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/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

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

For TRUTH IS! As The Messiah testified, so also His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) have 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)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

So, "you that are unable to do the least(breathing is the gift of life, and the breath of life needs be received), why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:26)

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(Not that which i know but that which i have received!)"!  (I Corinthians 8:2; 2:16)
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 that IS The 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(Messiah), I do not like your christians. Your christians are so unlike your christ"!

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 worldly and/or religious souls 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.....)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-messiah-servant-of-and-sent-by-only.html

Considering A LIE opens the door that 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)

September 4, 2018

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(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) souls 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)

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 i had crisscrossed this place on earth they call the u.s.a. from vermont to california, washington to florida, and north dakota to texas.
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) yet i knew not what i could or would 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 of my possessions(which actually possessed me) behind when i began my search in earnest, and i could load all my "stuff" 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)

August 31, 2018

​Thankfully TRUTH IS, so Victory IS! (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' seems to be a bit distorted, more than likely because of your love for your own self("I", ego, id, 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

"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 gainsaying(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 for those souls 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)

August 27, 2018

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 WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one"(Yet Thankfully The Family of Our FATHER and GOD IS !NOW! for "The Born Again" brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah! For He DID "Come Again" and "Quickly" when old jerusalem was destroyed and He then delivered up The Kingdom unto Our FATHER and GOD!)(John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4)
