Heaven and earth pass away, but Christ’s Word will never pass away. Let it come to pass in you! Let the Word be written on your heart and mind! The Word is sharper than a two-edged sword; it removes the old heavens and earth and brings Christ’s life and spirit! A new heaven and a new earth come to pass in and through you!!!
The promise is fulfilled as the Word is manifest in you to be expressed through you! As he is, so are we in the world! We are a new heaven and a new earth in the world; in it but not of it! We are OF heaven on earth! We are seated with Him in heavenly places! Behold his glory with unveiled face! To God be the glory now and forever and ever!!!
“NOW is the Son of man glorified, and in him God is glorified; if God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and glorify him at once” John 13:31
“I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their WORD, that they may ALL be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may BE IN US, so that the world may believe that thou has sent me. The GLORY which thou hast given me I have given to them” John 17:20-23
RECEIVE HIS GLORY WITH REVERENTIAL AWE!
“The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let her who HEARS say, ‘Come.’ And let her who is thirsty come, let her who desires TAKE the water of life without price” Rev 22:17
The living water, Jesus said, is his glorified Spirit (John 7:37-39)! Yes Lord, I receive ALL you have promised us! “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away” Luke 21:33. “Truly I say to you, THIS GENERATION will not pass away till ALL THESE THINGS take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away” Matthew 24:34-35.
“Today when you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts…let us strive to enter THAT REST, that no one fall by that same sort of disobedience. For the word of God is LIVING and ACTIVE, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart…all are open and laid bare to the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession…let us with confidence DRAW NEAR TO THE THRONE OF GRACE…in the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplication…being made PERFECT, he became the source of salvation (wholeness, completeness, perfection, lacking nothing, everything is possible) TO ALL who obey him, being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek…solid food is for the mature, for those who have their faculties TRAINED by practice to distinguish good from evil…LEAVE the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity…be enlightened, taste the heavenly gift, become partakers of the Holy Spirit, taste the goodness of the WORD OF GOD and the POWERS OF THE AGE TO COME…through faith and patience INHERIT THE PROMISES…We have this as a SURE and steadfast anchor of the SOUL, a hope that enters into the inner shrine BEHIND THE CURTAIN, where Jesus went as our forerunner” Hebrews 4:7 to 6:19
Christ Jesus removes the veil and we behold his glory and are changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit! (2 Cor 3:18)
Receive his glory! Agree with God, not the world!! Get out of the apostate church; come to Jesus, the living one, alive forever more, the ONE with the keys, and you will find rest for your soul!!! It is our Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom!!!! TAKE the water of life without price! Let it come to pass in and through you!
This is only words; clustered together and not understood by the writer or the reader. If you knew the truth how would you then write your words? Yes, as it was said, we are of God. With God there is neither a beginning nor an end. With God there is only infinite love. Understand, with understanding comes wisdom.

The Word of God is living, active; spirit and life. I pray that the Holy Spirit will give you understanding and wisdom. If you lack wisdom ask our Father. What god are you referring to?
“But you are not in the flesh, you are in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Any one who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is IN YOU…your spirits are alive because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies ALSO through his Spirit who dwells in you” Romans 8:9-11

Why do you ask what God? Do you have more than 1? I only know the Father. That said, I often think that there are some who only find their God within their religious text. To try to show others how Godly they are they will quote verse after verse. Sorry, I am being judgmental and I should try not to be so. Regardless of how you perceive God, God loves you always.
Why don’t you try reading all of Yvonne’s posts instead of one? There are not many truly inspired as she is, or truly touched by God. She quotes Scripture because that is the basis of all she speaks of.
One thing you are right about, you are judgemental.
Christine, thank you for coming to my defense, my sister in Christ. Thank you for knowing my heart especially today. God bless you! We truly are the body of Christ, his heart, his feet, his eyes, his ears, his mouth, his cells, his light as we share him with each other in a dark world. To God be the glory!
I understand why you respond this way. My struggle continues to be the false inspiration and incorrect interpretation of the words spoke by Jesus. Let me tell you, there is no holy spirit. Jesus Christ does not live in you and you do not need to be “in Christ.” So what is the truth? The truth is that God loves all his children equally and unconditionally. I imagine that if Jesus came today you would kill him again as he would not agree with what is quoted/”commanded” by the bible or any other religious text any more than he did when they crucified him. Understand this, every one of us are holy to the Father. We are all created by the Father. God’s plan for us is also so simple, it is simply that we exist. So, if you want to use the books to get closer to God, okay it’s your choice. Perhaps you could do this without being equally judgemental and condescending to others that disagree with your understanding of God’s love.
How many Gods are there on earth or in heaven?
“For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth–as indeed there are many ‘gods’ and many ‘lords’–yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus the Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist. However, not all possess this knowledge” 1 Cor 8:5-7
I agree, however what was written suggest Jesus is a God. Thor the son of Zeus was a “half God” the similarities with Greek mythology should be understood.
Make no mistake, Jesus is, was and is to come the Christ appointed by God for us. Rejecting Him is rejecting God. No one who has the Father rejects the Son; no one who knows the Son rejects the Father. “He who has seen me has seen the Father” “He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities–all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that in everything he might be pre-eminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. And you who were once estranged and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable before him, providing you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which has been preached to every creature under heaven” Colossians 1:15-23
The Word is spirit and life. “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God…in Him was life and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it.”
Jesus had a very difficult task, in a very difficult time. I don’t reject what he said or did, if I must reject, then it is your understanding that I must disagree. Jesus was not born
of a virgin and his father is also the father of his brothers and sisters. That father was not Joseph. … but… you can believe what ever you want, I was just pointing out the error.
God loves you always.
Who do you say Jesus is?
That is a very good question given that religious history as covered the truth of his birth and life. Still, if it was meant to be different then it would have been different.
I understand that Jesus was one who chose to come here to correct the wrongs being inflicted upon the people. The time was very difficult, people sold their children to pay taxes to the temple and to the government.
To understand that he was a man who chose to go the path he went should really give testimony to what one man can do. He understood the way of God. He understood unconditional love. He understood human behavior. I might call him a special messenger from God, but perhaps he went far beyond that.
He certainly changed the world at that time.
His way was the way of unconditional love. His teachings went against the common teachings of the temple. He taught God’s Love.
He taught that God loves everyone. He demonstrated this with his own words from the cross, “For all of you who look upon me with hate, anger, and disgust, I love you all.” These words were spoken to everyone; the ones that tortured him, who tore the flesh from his bones. To the ones that nailed him to the cross and the one that pierced his side with a spear, those that mocked him, those that threw rotten fruit at him, those that jeered him. That was the power and love of a man.
Was Jesus the son of God? In the Bible there are many sons of God. Check it out in Geneses where it says, “and the sons of God…” Does this mean there were more of virgin birth? Or is there other meaning? It does not mean that they are Gods or half Gods.
Would you like to look upon God? Open your eyes and look around you at God’s creation. Enjoy, this is his gift to us.
Thanks for letting me share my thoughts with you.
God loves you always.
“Father forgive them for they know not what they are doing”
🙂 Good night.
Good night! The real, living, active Lord Jesus, the Christ, is wooing your heart! Let go of your preconceptions and what you have thought or heard others say and go directly to Jesus! Learn from Him! He will take you to our Father who loves you more than you can conceive, think or imagine! It is KNOWING the Love of Christ that fills us with all the fullness of God. We go to the Source of Love through the manifested Love of Jesus! Good night indeed! for in Christ even the darkness is light! Jesus is, was and is to come the true light that enlightens all and in His light all darkness is overcome! God is Love, God is Light without any darkness at all, and God is Spirit! God is more than the mind can comprehend, but can be understood by the innermost heart! Love in Christ to you! Your soul is thirsting and hungering for Jesus! He alone can satisfy the deepest longing!
Lol, cute. I’M glad you understand that God is love, Love is God. We are created from love and back to love is where we will return. It may take us awhile to find our way back home but we have eternity. God is always there for us. We are never rejected or punished by God. Jesus would never ask God to forgive us as God only loves and forgiveness only comes from the one that is injured by another. If you know this then you will know that you can stop suggesting people will be rejected by God if they don’t accept Jesus in their hearts.
Understand that I reject the Christian teachings. (In fact all religious teaching.) I am spiritual, spirituality is about God.
Jesus spoke against what was being taught from the book. He fought against the practices required by the temple. They killed him because of that. If he appeared before you today and spoke against what you teach from your book, would you kill him again?
Interesting enough, I have read that he has returned 7 times since and each time he has been killed. True? I don’t know. It was just something I read.
If you must teach then I recommend you teach God’s unconditional love. However it is your choice of what you believe and teach.
God is love, God loves you always.
I have nothing to do with religion for only a relationship with God through Jesus is true Love that truly satisfies and fulfills! Nothing else will do! No one who receives, experiences, or encounters His pure Love rejects or denies Him! He is wooing you! Your soul is longing for Jesus! He is the only One who can satisfy your heart’s deepest desire!
You are so funny. Jesus is like a brother. I don’t need an intermediary to have a relationship with God. That relationship has been there ever since he created me and named me Nathaniel.
Yes, Jesus could love without conditions. And you understand that God is love. Love is the most powerful force in the universe.
Perhaps someday we will be able to create a center that promotes peace and prosperity for all of us. A center that solves problems by working together. No one is pushed aside, no one is condemned by religious beliefs. Thanks again for sharing, it is good to know God’s love for all of us.
No one who has the Father denies the Son; no one who has the Son denies the Father! They are invisible Love and visible Love. Jesus is the light of the world and the Name above all names! Jesus was the only perfect man who ever lived, so for all the rest of us Love without repentance or love without forgiveness is not Love. No one can have a relationship with a holy God without a relationship with the Son, the Christ, the anointed One, the Lamb of God. We humble ourselves and He exalts us; we give him everything we did wrong and he gives us everything he made right, his kingdom and his righteousness without which we cannot have a relationship with Holy God, our Father who is Love! Jesus came for those who need a physician, making us whole, complete, perfect, well and lacking nothing. If you are perfect and righteous you have no need of the Great Physician. In that case you would truly be an anomaly. You be the judge!
So sorry, but that is so wrong. It is words used to control people by using religion as a tool to create fear. Study history, understand the authors. Understand the role of Constantine in the rewrite of the Bible.
You claim no religion but swear by the Bible.
Oh well. …
May the Spirit of Truth lead you into all Truth! I forgive you! God bless you! Amen.
If I have caused you harm then I apologize, it was not intended. May peace and love fill your heart. God loves you always.
perspectives author, the god of this world is not God who is the Creator of the heavens and the earth in whose image and likeness we were created;
there is a spirit of the world and there is the Holy Spirit who comes down from God our Father and the Lamb to be with us and in us forever; there is a spirit of error and a Spirit of Truth and Holiness
May God bless you!

My new favorite post from you, my dear. And it was such a timely one-just what my spirit needed. Life has a way of distracting me from being in the Word as often as I would like.

It’s such a beautiful relationship-the Father in Jesus, Jesus in the Father, and both in us along with the Holy Spirit. What a wonderful God we serve! This really sparked something fresh in me today.

Thank you ART; surely we need eyes to see and ears to hear, a heart to perceive, a mind unveiled by Christ, to turn and be healed by God. The god of this world is overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony that agrees with Jesus, the Word made flesh! To God be the glory now, and forever and ever Amen. Hallelujah! We hear and do what God is saying to the church, the Body of Christ, “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God” Rev 2:7. Jesus said to the criminal beside him at Golgotha, “Today you will be with me in paradise” We conquer our mind that is affected and infected by the prince of the air. “He who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne” Rev 3:21. We see that Jesus is the way, and the truth and the life and we come to Him and enter his Rest in the paradise of God now and forever.
“Come to Me all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke for it is easy and my burden is light” He does take our burdens; he brought great comfort and a river of peace to me at the memorial service that I was able to give to others grieving as the world grieves. He is our rest in the midst of sorrows and the tribulation and trials of the world. In the midst of the world he is our Rock, a sure and steady anchor and the Comforter does comfort and soothe and help us to live in an uncomfortable world! To God be the glory always!!!!!!!!
“For he will render to every person according to his works; to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life…There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for every one who does good… God shows no partiality” Romans 2:7-11
Amazing Grace! Goodness! Awe and Wonder! “glory and honor and peace, and immortality”!!!

Yes! Amen!! (let it be so or so it is)
perspectives author, you said, ” Let me tell you, there is no holy spirit.” Where did you get your information about God?
Obviously not from the Bible we all here read. 🙂
My source comes from all that I see and all that I hear.
You quote chapter and verse, why? But, if you must, then read it all and understand from where the words come. Religion continues to be the greatest instigator of hate and hostilities in the world. If truly, God is Love, why would His words lead to such hate? It does not make sense. Still, religion looks for God in their books, often placing their books even above God, above the people that God loves.
In reviewing the comments “defense” is mentioned. There is no offensive attack here I only tell you the truth, no defense in needed.
Thank you for sharing your feelings and being open to direct conversation.
God loves you always.
You said, “My source comes from all that I see and all that I hear.” When did you begin seeing and hearing God? What does God look like; what have you seen? How do you hear God and what does God say to you?
It is very interesting that some would want to know how God looks and what he speaks. Yet, more importantly are how you see yourself and how you speak.
I will share with you this, you cannot describe God in terms of our physical existence. In Transitions, A Spiritual Evolution I described the spiritual universe in the mathematical terms of a singularity.
What does God say to you? Haven’t you heard God’s voice in your head? Perhaps it was at a low point when you heard the words, “I love you.” Perhaps you looked around for the voice but did not see anything but you felt differently in that moment. Your senses were alive; you felt warm; you felt like you were being hugged tightly; your mind was calm and peace filled your heart. Have you never had that experience?
You ask, “How do you hear God?” The answer is so simple, you listen. God is always around you. See God in all of his creation. See God in the people that surround you, there are over 6 billion of us in the world all created by the same and only God. It is so simple, so simple, but “it is the nature of man to make it difficult to understand.”
Hmmm you are an interesting one. Speak of “hate” and “you would kill Him again” in respects of Yvonne?
Again, you clearly do not know God, Jesus and you certainly don’t know the Holy Spirit.
You don’t know Yvonne either. So unless you read her posts, or know her experience as I had the same at the same point in my life, or know those that read her blog and understand her direct inspiration from God, all you are showing yourself is judgemental, and pompous.
Perhaps you are correct; perhaps I am what you see me to be. You are correct in your comment that I do not know the holy spirit as I cannot know that which I understand as only imagination. Sometimes a good imagination is helpful, other times it only creates barrios between people. So, I work to share what I know and although I would imagine I would promote understanding I may have instead created contempt.
Perhaps you, Christine, would allow me to use a generic “you” that refers to the religious that hold tightly to their book; quoting verse after verse.
Then imagine that you lived 2032 years ago, plus or minus a couple of years. There at that time listen to a young man who is critical of the teachings and demands of the “temple” on the people. Is it possible that you could understand the contempt of the religious priests and scholars who saw and heard of the actions of that young man? If you could compare the actions and thoughts of the religious leaders then to the thoughts and actions of the religious leaders today, when someone speaks out against religious teachings, then perhaps you could better understand my words, “you would kill him again.”
Do you understand what Jesus taught? Perhaps so, perhaps you already know of the last words he spoke on the cross that would amplify his teaching.
When I asked, this is what I was given:
“Look at him hanging there, white bones showing through ripped flesh. These are the words he spoke to those that tortured and maimed his young body. These are the words he spoke as he looked down on them from the wooden cross to which he was nailed. He said this to all of them as they mocked and jeered him; as they threw rotten vegetables and rotten fruit at him. ‘For all of you that look upon me with hate, anger, and disgust, I love you all.’ ”
God is, you are, I am. Isn’t it a miracle, this gift of the Father that we call life. Life that the Father has given each of us with unconditional Love for which we can use as we choose.
Thank you and love always
perspectives author, you speak of “love” yet there is no LOVE without the Holy Spirit and no one can say “Lord Jesus Christ” without the Holy Spirit. The Father pours his Love into our hearts through or by the Holy Spirit whom you deny; his Word is spirit and life, which you also seem to deny even though Jesus is the Word made flesh. I would warn you and exhort what Jesus taught us through the Holy Spirit, “Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.” Matthew 12:31-32
The Peace of God is beyond understanding; the Love of Christ is beyond knowledge; without the Holy Spirit we are blind, deaf, stiff-necked, hard-hearted and cannot perceive spiritual things. May you turn for God to heal your understanding. Jesus says to all unconditionally, without partiality or judgment, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and LEARN FROM ME; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find REST FOR YOUR SOUL. For my yoke for it is easy, and my burden is light”
We are not called to come to religion or come to the scriptures; we come to Jesus and he sends us his Spirit who opens up his Word to be understood and eaten and nourished by daily.
Jesus did not leave us orphans or desolate; he sent his Holy Spirit, the Comforter, the Advocate, the Helper, the Guide, the Teacher, our Counsel, Intercessor, our ALL in ALL, the Spirit of our Father and his Lamb to live with us and IN US now and forever and ever.
Ask our Father and he will give you his Holy Spirit and fire so you can be transformed body, soul and spirit; also justified, sanctified and even glorified (Romans 8:28-30). (Jesus’ blood has already forgiven and redeemed you if you choose to let it.) “And I tell you, Ask and it will be given you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be give to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? or if he asks for an egg, a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:11
I pray that you will let our Father soften your heart and open your mind, ears and eyes to see what the Spirit is saying to the church; turn and be healed in Jesus’ name above ALL names, Amen.
It is our Father’s good pleasure to give you his kingdom! His great compassion and mercy are for all, even though they have gone astray or believed lies of the god of this world. May God bless you perspectives author!
I do not know you nor what is in your heart. I only responded to the posting and its content. If you choose to quote the Bible and live within your interpretation of what the words mean then that is your choice and I have no right to tell you to do otherwise. What I have only said is that the words have no meaning when used that way.
Understand, forgiveness does not come from God or Jesus. However, because we (humans) make it difficult there are many tools that are provided to help us. There are also tools given to hinder us. If the spiritual universe gives us one good thing then one bad thing must be given as well. It is this way because of the gift of freedom of choice. Balance must be maintained.
So from where does forgiveness come? It comes from the one that caused the harm; it comes from self. To see and understand means that we must open our ears, eyes, and mind to hear, see, and understand who we are and why we are here. This is not an easy task and we often get lost in our attempts. We imagine that we do what is right both for ourselves and others when, in reality, we only cause harm. I ponder this last thought even as I write this.
So, I will just close this dialog with some simple facts. We all are children of God. We are all equally loved by God. There are no conditions for God’s love and God will never punish us for anything we do, nor will we ever be rewarded by God for what we do. We come, we go, that is what we do. It is the journey that we take from spirit to flesh, flesh to spirit. We do this because of love.
One, of the Father, said I could ask any question. I struggled many times with this as what could I ask that would not be superficial. I was told a question that would have meaning. The question, “How do I love more?” I thought a moment and I asked, “How do I love more? He responded, “Learn to love yourself.” He went on to say when you learn to love yourself then you will know what it means to love God. When you know what it means to love God then you will learn to love others as we are all of God.
When you understand this and then you read the words that are written of what Jesus said, then you may be able to better understand his meaning when he said “I am the way.”
His way, the way he showed us was the way of unconditional love.
So, I only said that the words quoted are without meaning because they are not understood by the writer or the reader. What was said then was not understood and so after all this time what is understood now was not said then.
Still, in terms of God, what we do, say, or think does not make a difference in his love for us. Even if we do wrong God will never reject us, that is what unconditional means. Even if we do wrong in this lifetime we have an infinite number of lifetimes to correct ourselves until that time that we forgive ourselves.
I am sorry if you have recently suffered loss in your life. Like I have said, we come and we go, it is what we do. Shortly after she passed, my mother came to me one night. I saw her laying down across the foot of the bed with a light blanket covering her. She looked at me and said, “I love you.” She loved me in life and she loves me now. The love from the other side is pure, it is without conditions, it is always.
God loves you, Love always
Understand, perspectivesauthor, religion comes from man, Spirit comes from God and His Word. Jesus left us so that He may have sent His Holy Spirit to us always. You deny the Spirit, you deny God. As one who listens to His Word, we can then listen in our heart. Without His Word first, we cannot understand with our heart and receive His Spirit.
You seem to understand about Jesus and His broken body on the Cross, and you speak His words. How do you know of this, From the Bible. Yet you deny everything else in the Bible Jesus speaks of, most importantly, His Holy Spirit. How can you pick and choose His words, ignore others, and use your own judgement to replace His own words.
Please check your heart and heed ALL of His words. You cannot accept what you want and throw out what you don’t. That, friend, is why Yvonne quotes Scripture, and massive amounts of it. The Spirit is who informs her heart, and teaches her the Word of God from the Bible. Jesus, and ALL of Him, is the only Truth.
You clearly come from an understanding of man can save himself, and its not what Jesus did. You clearly come from the understanding we can do it ourself. This is pagan, and what all other religions except Christianity teach. You seem to believe yourself a follower of Jesus yet deny He is the Word, God made flesh, and that He sent the Spirit to teach us so we are not alone. We are not part of the Godhead, yet you seem to think we already are, and this is another sign of pagan religions. This is the spirit of antichrist, and this is what the world system teaches.
How do we love more? We love because He first loved us. We cannot love ourselves “more” or love others unconditionally, much less “at all”, without He who loved us first. Yvonne and I were taken into Love at our darkest times. Then, we overflowed His Love to the world. There is nothing we have to “do” except accept it. We do not need “tools”. We do not need to love ourselves firsr, in fact we cannot. We do not know love when we separate ourselves from Love by not knowing Him first. We are not God, but He shares Himself with us and makes us partakers of Him, participate in Him, He making us perfected Creation, united with Him, His Gift to us, as it was in the beginning and even more. But we are never Godhead Himself.
Jesus said – “come out of her”, the beastly world system, which seeks to usurp from God what is His, and make us identify with the universe, the creation not united to God. This system replaces God, degenerates Him into being his creation, and a fallen creation at that. God is one with His perfected Creation, but not of it, and He is not one with the fallen creation, which the world system perpetuates. The beastly system perpetuates it in a last attempt to prevent humanity from becoming perfected in Jesus Christ, and Him alone, that it may stay fallen, and the system and its leaders continue to exist. Your mindset plays right into it. Jesus has already done it, there is nothing for us to do but accept it that it may be fully manifested. True Christianity, not Christian religion from man, is the only Truth that says we cannot do it ourselves, it is unique, and that is why it offends, and Jesus Christ becomes a stumbling block. It offends the fallen humanity’s PRIDE, that WANTS to be able to do it themselves, through “tools” as you say. Wake up! There is a vested interest of satan and his lackeys to keep the world in bondage to this system, giving people “tools” that do nothing but confuse, divide, and cause false ideas that “we” can do anything apart from Jesus, Christ made flesh!
The beastly system that is an illusion that you seem to want to perpetuate, pray, and come out of her, the harlot beast system!
I read your comments. I have thought on this for several minutes and I realize that anything that I would say at this time would either seem an attack or simply fall on a closed mind.
Do you possess the truth or do you seek the truth?
Do you know Jesus, his mother, his brothers, his father?
How far have you read in your research? Do you know the background of your religious holidays; Easter; valentines day; Christmas?
Repeated propagation by the masses of the same stories does not create truth. Truth is.
The most important truth that I know:
God Loves Us All, Equally and Unconditionally.
Minds are not closed by the Holy Spirit through Jesus, they are open to the Truth.
Yes God loves us unconditionally. But He cannot recognize us in sin. That is why He sent His Son Jesus to reconcile us to Him, every one of us. This, is Unconditional, Agape, Love without Opposite.
Truth cannot be possessed. It is given to us in Jesus. No one possesses Jesus, for He gave Himself to all, for all. All we must do is receive what He has already done. Pride disables fallen humanity from accepting this simplicity. Pride says we must have “tools” or “do something”. Jesus says, “Just receive, I have already done it for you, because I love you.” That is unconditional love. Our disability is our inability to receive in simplicity.
I know the pagan roots of the holidays systemic Christianity celebrates. Yes, I enjoy these holidays as times to get together with family and friends. But Jesus’ salvation and love is for everyone, all the time. It’s not these manmade holidays that make Jesus Christ the Truth. Manmade traditions do not bear on Truth. As I said above, systemic Christianity is manmade religion, the Christianity of Christ is Spirit.
You keep trying to imply because we follow the Bible, we play into the hands of systemic Christianity, or the world system, or propagation of the masses, as you say. True Biblical Christianity is taught by the Spirit. The written word is milk, the beginning, but His Word is Truth and Life, which the Holy Spirit teaches and brings to our understanding.
Yes, you are right, God loves us equally and unconditionally, this is why He gave us His Son. He also loves us enough to give us freedom of choice, to choose His Son to do what we cannot do of ourselves, and will also allow our minds to become darkened if that is what we so choose. Free choice is His great gift to us. He also gives us Truth. It is up to us what choice we make, and with it the consequences.
The god of this world however, is a liar from the beginning, and comes to steal, kill and destroy.
Check the light that is in you. Is it Light? If not, it is dark indeed.
Christine, you said, “Yes God loves us unconditionally. But He cannot recognize us in sin. That is why He sent His Son Jesus to reconcile us to Him, every one of us” Yes! Amen! He can only have fellowship with his nature in us; his Son in us. Our Holy Father can only have communion with what is holy in us: his Christ in us! Jesus’ ministry is reconciliation: all things in heaven and on earth! Thank you Jesus for the finished work of the cross that is finished in us through the advocacy of the Holy Spirit with and in us! Thanks be to God! All glory, honor, praise and dominion to God for the finished work of the cross of Jesus! Thank God!!!
Yvonne, Amen sister, both here and below. 🙂

I do not know the source of your information nor inspiration. Therefore I can only speak of what I understand. In the Gospel of Mary Magdalene it is said that they asked their teacher from where evil comes. He replied there is no evil, evil only exist in the hearts of man.
I write about positive and negative energies. Perhaps the negative energies are what you call the God of this world, perhaps not. I only know of one God but I do understand that others may choose to call something else God and idolize books and statues, buildings, and mountains. Is God in all of these things? Well, not in that way, it is much different and very hard to describe.
Jesus was a man with a divine mission. As time passed they modified their stories of him to change from a man to a man god to a god. The stories changed because they were creating a new religion and had to compete with the existing religions including pagan religions. Unfortunately there was both good and bad in what happened. The sad part is that there are many that do not understand that they are as important in the world as Jesus; to understand we are all born of the Father.
I estimate that 99% of the world’s population are good people who struggle to live and support their families; they share their love with friends and neighbors and help out the stranger that pass into and out of their lives. The other 1% create havoc in one form or another. I understand that the havoc is necessary from a spiritual perspective in order for us (humanity) to have choice.
As to negative energies, they do their best work when we do not know they are there. Even something that we do that seems so right to us can instead cause otherwise. That is why it is very hard to tell someone what they should or should not do. That is why I can only tell you what I understand as truth and it is why I can only definitely tell you of the one singular truth that I know.
God loves you always.
Nathaniel, Jesus taught that we must be born anew from above, then we are born of God, our Father (John 3:3). After Jesus was resurrected, the religious Jews who were in bed with the Roman government, paid people to lie and spread stories (Matthew 28:11-15) and thus still today those without the Holy Spirit of God our Father can be misled as they have no spiritual discernment and the things of the Spirit of God are folly to them (1 Cor 2:14). They make themselves wise of the world, but devoid of the Spirit they create division (Jude 1:19). We see a flip now, where the Roman religion is in bed with a Jewish government, although cloaked, and people are still being paid to lie and hide the way, truth and life.
Nathaniel, I agree with you that there are probably 99% of humans with good hearts, and God judges by the heart, not outward trappings of godliness, or external shows of righteousness. The 1% is what is marketed and promoted in this world to nudge and budge the 99% to hate or resent or even kill those who are a different race, gender, culture, religion, language or tribe. That is why we need the Holy Spirit in our heart to perceive the hearts of others as Jesus and his Father do. “God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God….no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might understand the gifts bestowed on us by God…The unspiritual man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:10-16). We choose to have the mind of Christ; for the world mind is a hive-mind and leads us into dead ends, lies, deceptions including false religion and spirituality.
As to the gospel of MM, any “teacher” who tells you there is no evil and it exists only in the heart of man is the message of the evil one himself who blames human beings and wants to take as many as he can with him to the place prepared for evil. Human beings are made in the image and likeness of God and the fallen angels and the evil one resent, hate, and therefore try to steal our birthright, identity, and mind, try to destroy our peace, and try to kill our joy. Jesus restores our birthright, identity, spiritual gifts, image and likeness, so the evil one and his fallen angels work overtime to deceive you, even using religion and spiritual texts to lead as many as they can into deception. That is why it is imperative to receive our Father’s Holy Spirit through his Lamb: the ascended Jesus.
May God bless you Nathaniel and lead you into all truth through his Holy Spirit! God is love, but not love as of the world; Jesus gives us His Peace or Shalom, not the peace offered by the world! ~Yvonne
What draws me to this discussion like a moth to a flame?
Ok, so we agree on many things so I am trying to find the point of disagreement.
Let’s consider the Bible, Quran, Torah, just as points of discussion. When I read the words written I feel I can clearly understand those words that are said to come from Jesus. I feel that I can understand many of the parables that are included. However, I also understand where words may have changed to fit the needs of the time.
Let’s consider the Quran, the chapter on women. If you read it the majority of the chapter speaks on how to treat the women, but then, for some reason it changes. Of a sudden it starts referencing the need to attack the Jewish people. Why did the author change the subject? My answer: different author with a need to convince people to hate. This is the way the religious text are written, they are written to reflect heredity, ownership, and control. So, mix in a few lovely quotes from the special leaders you admire with the direction of pain and anguish if you don’t listen to “The Word of God,” and you have a clear recipe for control of the masses.
Did Jesus, Mohamed, even Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr, do things that are right and courageous? The answer has to be “absolutely!” However, some would use these great people to promote their own means. If that means has gotten us to where we are today, then perhaps it is all worth it. But, what will tomorrow be like?
We fall upon our knees and pray God to smite down our enemies. Our enemies fall upon their knees and pray God to smite down their enemies. Should God choose to answer everyone’s prayers none of us would exist, we would all be smitten down. (Poor us.)
So, I say the words are just words. If those words are inspirational to you and others then who am I to object to how you and they find inspiration except that I feel bad when that inspiration comes by condemning others for how they believe. For example: It is only by accepting Jesus that you will be forgiven. That thought is completely untrue. So what did Jesus really tell us? Well he told us many things and many of his followers wrote down what they heard and many of those writings were rejected by the Christian church because the caused doubt. And then Constantine got everyone together and reorganized the Bible to ensure it only said what he wanted it to say. And then 70 or so scholars got together and said it all meant thus and how could they be wrong because, after all, they were 70 scholars?
Another example: Song of Songs in the Old testament. Why is it in the Bible? Read it closely and compare it to a structure of a play. Yes, a play written for entertainment of the young king. It is not all there, only a part, but if you read it carefully you will see what I mean.
God is Love, Love is God. God created us from Love and we have chosen life as a means to learn. We come we go, each time working to repair our mistakes such that there will come a time that we can freely choose to return home. That return will always be by our choice, none other will make that choice for us.
If, to live our lives in love and peace, then that love and peace must come from each of us with total acceptance of each other. I do not think that day will ever come so instead there is only left the need to live in peace and acceptance within our own heart.
God loves you,
you said, “We fall upon our knees and pray God to smite down our enemies.” This is not what Jesus teaches. Jesus is unique! Jesus brought a new thing to the earth “love your enemies, do good to those who hurt you, pray and bless those who curse you” then you will have no more enemies…
You said, “What draws me to this discussion like a moth to a flame?”
the answer: Jesus! the Real Jesus! The same living, ascended Jesus who came to me in a class when I was working on my masters and said, “Come to me you who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest.” I had been asking “scholars” if there was any difference between Jesus and Buddha and Krishna and Muhammed after I began “seeking” after giving up on religion that left me with the same “issues” and “theology” neither healed nor made me whole. I was basically at, “there has to be something better than this” after so many disappointments and disillusionments in the world and relationships. During the buddhist meditation we were supposed to visualize one of the buddhas with closed eyes, and I tried and tried, and then Jesus came to me and spoke to me. At his words a warm sensation started at my belly and as it increased, the flame rose, and when it hit my heart it was as if an explosion went off and chains burst off my heart. The meditation ended and I was crying and another person in the class said, “your heart just opened!” but I had no idea what she was talking about. I was shaking and went outside and immediately took my shoes off and walked on the grass until I found a tree and sat under it for I have no idea how long until I could drive home.
This is just one small experience I have had, but the Truth is Jesus is REAL and he is alive and amazing! He reconciles us with our Father! He took me from intellectual head knowledge ABOUT God to my heart and a real relationship with God our Father, the Father I alway wanted and needed, the love, protection and provision I always wanted but didn’t think was possible.
Recently, during my times of grief over my friends suicide, I would feel him comforting me, pouring warm, liquid love in me! I would feel his presence and a stillness, hush, silence, filled with his amazing peace enveloping me.
Daily his Holy Spirit and holy angels make a point of pointing things out to me, things that delight me as I delight in God, little “inside” jokes that amuse me, signs and wonders in nature that leave me in awe; showing me things I need to know, bringing people to mind or to my sight who are crying out for help and they always say, “how did you know” and I say, “I don’t, but the Holy Spirit does!”; and every morning a new fresh canvas and Joy and excitement about what will transpire that day! Today is the day! Now is the time! Coming into intimate relationship and communion with God through his Son and receiving his Holy Spirit is the greatest gift and embarks us on the greatest adventure of life; one I would not trade all the pain, sorrow, and trials I endured to bring me to the end of myself and into His Love, Peace, fullness of Joy, Life Abundant, and Rest, while God works in and through me! His Holy Spirit is my all in all and I could not go another day without his compassion, wisdom, understanding, loving kindness, amazing grace, mercy, goodness, and foretastes of glory! There is NO condemnation in Christ and those who condemn are not of God, nor do they know him.
I delight in God and he gives me the desires of my heart for Jesus knit our hearts together so that his desires are mine and mine his. He gave me double pleasure for the years of troubles. There was mourning for a night but Joy came in the morning! Jesus’ righteousness and kingdom are the greatest gifts in the history of human kind! We give Jesus our burdens and he gives us his Peace! I wouldn’t want to live without knowing Him and experiencing his love, for it is personal, not impersonal, tailored to what delights my soul, not universal! We are all his favorites!!! He invites all to come to Him without partiality; his Love unconditional!
Only Holy Spirit can open the Word to you and reveal the hidden splendor and unveil the hidden treasure in your earthen vessel. Ask for wisdom; ask to be shown the way and the truth and the life of God! There is only one Messiah, the Christ of God, the anointed one, the living one who resurrected from the dead, the first-born of many brethren, Yeshua HaMashiach, the first fruit of the Spirit. Do not be deceived by unclean or evil spirits that lie and manipulate or are disguised as angels of light. Only the Holy Spirit and his anointing teaches us everything that Jesus taught and brought to earth. Seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you.

Thank you for sharing your story I preferred it much more than multiple quotes from the Bible. I will also say that I understand your description of your experience as I can clearly recall the first night that the Archangel Sandalphon came to me. It was such an inspiring peaceful moment. And then another time when I spent hours with the Angel of patience, Ylliachon. We spoke long into the night and then he gave me a precious gift. It is hard to describe though I did write of all of this in my first book, Transitions.
It is very easy to separate light from dark in a direct conversation. It is much harder to understand the difference between superficial thought from messages given that are not by direct conversation.
Yes, Jesus was a real man and I would not discount that you have been visited by his spirit. When you are contacted by such love I agree it is the most moving experience you could ever have or hope to have. Such experience calls upon us to share with others.
You said “Do not be deceived by unclean or evil spirits that lie and manipulate or are disguised as angels of light.” This is not exactly how the negative energies work. The negative energies will never lie to you, however they will hide or manipulate the truth. They will never disguise themselves as angels, that is not allowed. Angels will always tell you they love you, negative energies do not.
“I asked God for all things so I could enjoy life, God said I gave you life so you could enjoy all things.” A simple quote with so much meaning. I think on this during my short morning meditation. I think on what has happened in the past and then I consider the future. Today will be the past of tomorrow. What we do today creates the memories of tomorrow. Thank you for this dialog, it creates good memories.
Good night, God loves you.
Do not be deceived Nathaniel, lucifer fell and took one third of the angels in heaven with him. Angels and demons are of the astral or lower heavens. Jesus is with our Father above the highest heavens. He is beyond comparison; he was exalted above all by our Father when he finished the work God gave him to do.
Do not be deceived, the evil one lies and manipulates and wants to destroy every human soul so it cannot return to God as he and the fallen angels cannot. Come out of her lest you share in her sins, share in her plagues and her tribulation. Only Jesus, the Christ, can save you from the hour of trial coming to the whole world. Only Jesus can take you out of the world into the kingdom of God, the kingdom of heaven on earth. Only Jesus can deliver you from the dominion of darkness into the kingdom of the beloved Son.
God is light with no darkness at all; all else is a mixture of darkness and light. As Jesus said when he started his ministry, “the time is fulfilled, the kingdom is at hand; repent and believe the gospel of God” Do not be deceived; come to Jesus and stop mixing good and evil as on the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Come to the tree of life through Jesus.
The Word of God is not about what we prefer, or soul preferences, or having a nice day, or pleasing man; I live to please only God. His Word is spirit and life and Jesus is the Word made flesh; God is love and Jesus is love made manifest. Do not be deceived. I pray that you will turn to Jesus, repent (change your mind) and pray to receive the Holy Spirit of God; wisdom, and spiritual discernment before you interact with any more angels for it is very dangerous. Our soul needs to be anchored in the Spirit of Christ Jesus to be safe, secure and protected from evil. Only Jesus holds the keys to Death and Hades, able to close the doors that can’t be opened and open the door that can’t be shut. I speak the truth to you in love: Jesus came to earth to destroy the works of the devil who came to steal, kill and destroy. He almost destroyed me but for Jesus! Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly. Jesus overcame the world, took the sins of the world and died with them and all born in the image and likeness of Adam. Jesus was the last Adam. When he resurrected he resurrected human beings into a new creation in the image and likeness of Christ, the anointed one. When we are born again, we are born of God instead of the flesh. When Jesus ascended he put his blood on the mercy seat of the Throne of God and sent his Holy Spirit to be with us and in us forever. Now we give Jesus our sins, mistakes, regrets, guilt, shame, blame, hatred, anger, resentment, bitterness, losses, burdens and life, and he gives us his righteousness and kingdom so we can have an intimate relationship with our Holy Father. The blood of the Lamb washes us clean, redeems, justifies, and reconciles us with the Father. Holy Spirit purifies, refines, sanctifies, and eventually glorifies us so we can become perfectly one with our Father. There is no life apart from our Lord Jesus Christ who is the way and the truth and the life. Truth is not some concept or idea or what seems right to a man which leads to destruction. Truth is Jesus and when we know the Truth the Truth sets us free! This I pray for you Nathaniel. Amen. Know the kingdom of God has come upon you; the ball is in your court. Choose wisely I adjure you. I bid you adieu. In the name of Jesus, the Name above all names in heaven and on earth, I pray that you wake up and receive the light of Christ so you will no longer call darkness light.Amen.
Jesus said, “Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is sound, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound, your body is full of darkness. Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness” Luke 11:34
God is love. Jesus is love made flesh; all else is a cheap substitute, an imposter, a platitude, a poser, a deceiver sent to take you away from the one power and presence of God. Even the demons know who Jesus is; do not be deceived. Jesus is the Son of man and Son of God; Jesus is the exact image, the exact representation of the Father; Jesus is the invisible God made visible. If you do not recognize him you do not know God; when you know Jesus you know the Father; when you see Jesus you have seen the Father. The Father and his Lamb rule and reign in heaven and Jesus was given the Name above ALL names in heaven and on earth and the only name in which we are saved, redeemed, justified, sanctified and glorified. To God be the glory now and forever and ever. Amen.
Once again I appreciate your devotion even if missing truth. What is important is finding God’s love in your heart.
There are many things that you say that aren’t correct according to what I know but it is consistent with Christian teachings so it looks like you have studied well.
Whenever you study you must broaden your studies to include all areas and both thought that support and conflict with your understanding. By being open minded you may discover things you didn’t know. For example, the story of Adam and Eve is just a fable.
Just thinking on something funny. Do you believe that the Angels that visited Lot were demons?
Do you think all Angels sit quietly in Heaven? Hmmmm. Jesus was the son of man and a son God. It is the same for us all. He said this as well.
Well tomorrow is another day. Seek and you will find.
We are never alone.
God loves you
Thumbs up Yvonne my sister and Amen to Jesus. You always say it better than I can ever dream.
