Are You Comfortable in Your Fleshly Existence?

In the Secret Book of James (Hidden Scriptures), we can read how James reasoned that perhaps he and other apostles should be spared the temptations of Satan because, “…we have forsaken our forefathers and our mothers and our villages and have followed you.”

Yeshua explains to James that “conversion” is a “gift” accepted by only the willing and that this willingness requires more than simply a bit of uncomfortableness. He speaks, “What is your merit when you do the will of the Father if it is not given to you by him as a gift, while you are tempted by Satan?”

The Jews were subject to the torments of Satan because they refused to heed anything the Messiah had to do or say to them. In short, they rejected him outright because He wouldn’t “deliver” them from the Romans. The “Church,” as we are all prone to easily accept as those seeking the will of Yahweh, also falls prey to the anguishes, miseries, and sufferings of Satan because they willingly disregarded, and still do disregard, the ENTIRE Words of Yahweh, removing and hiding Scriptures said to be revealed to the “Elect” in the Last Days.

Yeshua further comments to James: “But if you are oppressed by Satan and are persecuted and you do the Father’s will, I say that he will love you and will make you equal with me and will consider that you have become beloved through his providence according to your free choice. Will you not cease, then, being lovers of the flesh and being afraid of sufferings?(emboldening added)

“Or do you not know that you have not yet been mistreated and have not yet been accused unjustly, nor have you yet been shut up in prison, nor have you yet been condemned lawlessly, nor have you yet been crucified without reason, nor have you been tried shamefully, as was I myself, by the evil one?”

It appears that the words of Jeshua are telling us that in order to be doing the “Father’s will” we should expect suffering for His sake as He describes to James, i.e. “…have not yet been mistreated and have not yet been accused unjustly, nor have you yet been shut up in prison, nor have you yet been condemned lawlessly, nor have you yet been crucified without reason, nor have you been tried shamefully…” (emboldening added)

Most “Christians” i.e. “The Church,” are comfortable in their incomplete religious affiliations of community service and do-goodery, being willing participants in the works of the Whore of Babylon, corrupt local and national governments, and the fleshly existence of this sinful Satanic world.

Yeshua then asks James, “Do you dare to spare the flesh for whom the spirit is an encircling wall? If you contemplate the world, how long it is before you, and also How long it is after you, you will find that your life is but a single day and your sufferings one single hour. For the good will not enter the world.”

We are quite comfortable in our fleshly existence, partly because we have been kept from knowing all the truths of the Scriptures. What Yeshua is saying to James is that the “Church” is too comfortable in their “worldliness” and wants to know if members of the “Church” are willing to seek the fullness of Yeshua’s will and salvation.

Yeshua’s challenge to James thus becomes, “Scorn death (death in this instance means the spiritual death that results in our willing desire to refuse to “Come out of her my people” while enjoying our relative comfort of a worldly lifestyle deficient of and not completely filled of His Spirit), therefore, and take concern for life. Remember my cross and my death and you will live.”

If we find ourselves living in relative comfort, perhaps our spiritual existence is void and/or incomplete. In other words, Satan has us under his control and there is little need for him to exercise his torments against us.

We like to mouth that “freedom” isn’t free. I wonder if those who do can also see that freedom in eternal life, although a gift of Yahweh, taken by our free choice, comes with a price as well?

Inability To Discern TRUTH

From the Gospel of Thomas, verse 78: “Jesus said, “Why have you come out into the desert? To see a reed shaken by the wind? And to see a man clothed in fine garments like your kings and your great men? Upon them are the fine garments, and they are unable to discern the truth.””

As interpreted by one who has ears to hear: “Jesus said, Why have you come out into the desert? (Waterless place apart from the water of God’s Word) to see a reed (The Word Canon is derived from the word reed) shaken by the wind (of God’s doctrine)? And to see a man clothed in fine (Religious or secular) garments like your kings and your great men? (Who are all in collusion) upon them are the fine [garments], (Externals, or superficial greatness; association with an organization or religion) and they are unable to discern the truth (Because they lack internal greatness, or true substance)”

“The Truth is More Important Than Civility”

I was reading a Kurt Schlichter article sent to me from Townhall. It’s about civility and truth and the battle that rages between the liberals and conservatives (wink-wink). From my perspective, a perspective that is far from the “normal,” the author appears to use different terms to mean the same thing. For example, is there a difference between Left, liberal, and democrat? Definitely!

But I’m not interested so much to debate the ups and downs of this article, but only to address two statements made. To keep my discussion also in context with the article, let me say that the author, as I interpret things, is confusing a bit to me.  While preaching “civility” he also says that giving in to the demands of the Left should never happen and in the end says that if civility means surrendering, forget it. There seems to me anyway that there is great conflict between truth, civility, violence and the need to never back down from such things as defending one’s inalienable rights. More on this in a bit.

The first statement made is the following: “And truth is more important than civility.” 

As is usually the case, it’s important to examine the definitions of two keywords here – truth and civility.

An examination of “truth” from Webster’s shows us there is already confusion that comes from the meaning and use of the word. We find the number one definition as “the body of real things, events, and facts.” But we also find “…a judgment, proposition, or idea that is true or accepted as true.” Uh oh! And, …“fidelity to an original or to a standard.” Uh oh again! Then, let’s throw this in just to put the finishing touches to it – sincerity in action, character, and utterance.” (emboldening added)

Before we get into a further discussion about “truth,” let’s look at “civility” as also found from Webster. As the word applies to civilized conduct, Webster says the word means, “courtesy and politeness.” That’s pretty straightforward I would say.

It may not come as a surprise to anyone to discover there are real issues in the use of the term truth. Once again from my perspective, there is only one source of Truth (note the capital “T”) and that is what is found the Scriptures of our Creator, YHWH. Man’s “truth” as you can see, is confusing with indistinct, muddied and not well-defined meaning, as though it was crafted by lawyers. And that is much the root cause of many problems that exist in our society.

It is a simple task to call upon “truth” as something you have that nobody else does. But when you examine what man’s ideas of truth are you see that essentially it means whatever a person chooses to accept as their foundation of beliefs. Therefore truth and not Truth is a worthless instrument.

Some might ask why I didn’t choose to use the definition of truth as, “the body of real things, events, and facts.” We live in a post-normal world where there is no such thing that exists anymore that resembles real things, real events, or real facts. To deny it means you’re in serious trouble. I suggest help.

When we look at the original statement of “The truth is more important than civility,” what only exists in today’s world as a definition of “truth” tells us that it is pretty much impossible that any discussions or debates about anything can any longer be civil. When both sides, or multiple sides, claim to hold the truth, civility soon departs. Any form of civility is an exercise in compromising one’s well-crafted “truth.” Only politicians do that.

The second statement the author makes is this: “Civility is not a sign of weakness when a system of reasoned debate is in effect. But it is a sign of weakness, and will be taken as such by our enemies, when we cling to civility because we are too weak and afraid to admit the awful truth, that we are no longer a society ruled by reason but by power.

“You want a civil society again? Good – so do I. But the way to get it is not to surrender. It is to defeat those who want to crush you with lawless rulings by leftist judges, with economic warfare launched by woke corporations, and by the steady erosion of the rights your Creator granted you.

“If civility means submission, the hell with it.”

Putting this in the context of injecting man’s truth into a discussion of civility, shows how conflicting the statement becomes. Where both sides hold the “truth,” reasoned debate and thus civility, have taken a permanent vacation. The focus then becomes who will become the weaker of the two sides.

(Note: Were we ever ruled by anything other than power?)

In war, those more determined to win and never surrender are not operating within a theater of civility. No war is civil, whether physical, emotional or political.

The author calls upon the Right to rise up against the Left and not be weak by never surrendering, or allowing you to be “crushed” with “lawless rulings by leftist judges.” Is it that we should expect the Left to surrender or are we to beat them in a war? Remember, in the Left’s minds, just as the Right’s, they have dibs on the truth.

There is some truth in the statement that by the nature of conservatives, to live and let live, the Right has silently acquiesced to a more Leftist world/society. With constant cries to “go along to get along” and what appears to the Right as the only side that ever compromises (surrenders), perhaps the time has finally arrived (arriving with the onset of Artificial Intelligence which will become the new holder of man’s truth) that some on the Right see the end to their peaceful existence and are now just learning how to fight back.

It’s obvious as well that they are struggling with the concept.

So, what is the answer? The only answer is to seek the Creator’s Truth and to hell with man’s truth. It’s up to you. Government and party politics (Artificial Intelligence) are your enemies. It’s time to recognize and accept that.

Christmas: A Battleground – The Wrestling Against Powers and Principalities

I have often shared on this website Ephesians 6:12 from the Holy Scriptures: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness, which are in the high places.” The celebration and recognition of the Christmas “halig“day is perhaps the epitome of the battle between “principalities, against powers, and against worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of the world, against spiritual wickedness” and Goodness, i.e. the fulfillment of our Creator’s Spirit of Truth that, by our own choice, lives within us. Because our Creator God made us of the capacity to choose, it is our choice to be filled with His Spirit, however, the power of that Spirit is what “naturally” causes us to know the difference between wrong and right, with the exception of “strong delusion.”

Since the beginning of time there has existed the evil powers, by Heavenly Father’s choice, that work relentlessly to antithesize all things of the only Creator.

Bible scholars, and anyone who “studies to show themselves approved unto God,” know that our Savior (Yeshuwah) was not born in December and thus could not have been born on the 25th. It is believed that the Emperor Constantine, wrongly accepting of the myth by most in this world to be the first “Christian” world leader, first recognized the birth of the Savior Child on December 25th, a deliberate act of anti-Christ. Soon thereafter, the Vatican took over the bastardization of the birth of our Savior and thus turned it into the Pagan “halig”day it is today.

Try as they may to destroy all things Yeshuwah, to distort and mislead, the powers and principalities at work cannot destroy Yehwah’s Spirit of Truth.

Yes, the celebration of Christmas is a Pagan event, complete with the fabrication of “Satan” Claus, with a made up story about presents and the like wrongly attempting to meld Satan Claus and Yeshuwah into a share existence, but try as the evil may evil cannot break the power of Yeshuwah and the Spirit of Truth. Among all the worldly and Pagan symbols of this “halig”day, there still can be found moments of love and tenderness, an overlooking of the nastiness that often controls our lives, complete with a genuine seeking of Peace on Earth and Goodwill To All Men.

The Powers and Principalities do recognize that their mere efforts at Paganizing a government-recognized “halig”day, an event fabricated by Constantine to falsely placate the “Christians” of the day, that actually began the modern day practice of universal religion, i.e. Paganism, but this effort needs to be constantly reinforced to ensure that real Christians throughout the world not only prop up the holy Roman Empire’s bastardization of Christ but also to totally destroy any kind of recognition of the event of a Savior of the world being born for the redemption of our sins. This is why we see constant efforts at erasing even the name Christmas from the “halig”day.

Despite this effort, Richard Fernandez this morning writes: The effort to erase Christmas will probably fail for no other reason than that it meets a human need that a mechanical bureaucratic day off cannot fulfill.  Humanity needs a time to mark the growth and change in the family, an occasion to renew hopes and put aside fears and a chance to remember something we once knew: that everything’s going to be alright in the end.  It really will.”

The effort to erase Christmas will fail if for no other reason than this war between Powers will ultimately be won by the one and only True God who created all things and never breaks a promise. Many people may suffer cognitive dissonance, never realizing what is going on as they struggle to live in two opposing existences, but the power of Yehwah’s Spirit of Truth will forever show the good the differences between good and evil and as such, somewhere inside them, will seek Truth, Understanding, Peace on Earth and goodwill to all men everywhere in the World.

My prayer this day is that all will call upon that Spirit of Truth for that is the ONLY source of those things most of us seek and struggle to find.

May you receive the blessings of Yehwah!
