Needs? And Wants?

Why is it that the True Americans, the indigenous peoples, had 3 needs and maybe 30 wants, and then less than 100 years ago, the majority of the emigrants in this place called the u.s. of a. had 7 needs and 70 wants, and today? Why is that today there seems to be 70 needs and 700 wants?

What is truly needed?

And could not “wants” be defined as “lust”, or “covetousness”?

And covetousness?

Why is it that what was once called “covetousness”, was then called “greed”, and then “materialism”, and today? Why is it that today “covetousness” is called “good management”?

And would not “covetousness” be a synonym for “the american dream” and “consumerism”?

And is not “consumerism” destroying the earth(water, air, land, vegetation, creatures)?

Hope is there would be those who see(experience) that what is truly needed is realized in A Simple and Spiritual Life, for the treasures of such a Life more than satisfy that longing, that desire(wanting) for those things which at one time possessed them…….

Truly, less is more, and more is less, for “freedom’s just another word for no-thing else to lose”…….

The Messiah, He revealed such in His Life example and Teachings…….

“A Simple and Spiritual Life is the only Life that will survive.”

Two Oaks: As i reviewed the thread it came to me to respond further to the comments you had posted.

You quoted Many Horses: “A day will come when they(indigenous people) will outrun the white(spirit) man in his own shoes.”

Sadly, that is happening to many who at one time valued Truth above any thing created in mankind’s “imag”ination, that place where the LIES are dreamed up ;-(

Would be good to cast aside the “white man’s shoes” and begin to walk barefoot in The Truth!

Truth is as The Hopi peoples of AZ once believed, “A Simple and Spiritual Life is the only Life that will survive”!

You quoted Chief Dan George: “I shall grab the instruments of the white man’s success: His education, his skills, and society.”

And the tribe? the brotherhood?

The tribal family will be no more ;-(

And Truth will be but a memory in the minds of those who believed in and desired the white(spirit) man’s success ;-(

For such “success” is built upon a foundation of greed, deception, delusion, perversion, manipulation, ease of life, etc..

And sadly, it is because of such “success” that the earth(land, air, water, vegetation, creatures) is being destroyed, and that which is Spirit(Light, Life, Truth, Love, Peace, Hope, Mercy, Faith, Family, Miracles,,) is being perverted ;-(

And you wrote concerning The Hopi people: “Those preserving the tablets and the traditions do not concern themselves with the fear preachers.”

“Fear” is only in those who live in and of the white(spirit) man’s LIES ;-(

Truth has spoken, The Creator will “destroy those who destroy the earth!” Yet only those “living” in and of the fleshly desires of their mind are fearful of such destruction ;-(

Those who seek and desire to live “A Simple and Spiritual Life” are saddened by such destruction, yet not fearful.

There is no “fear” in those who desire to Live and abide in Truth, for they realize that the desire to abide in The Truth is the foundation for a Forever Life!

Truth is Spirit and Truth is Alive! Life, Real Life is Spirit and is of The Truth, and only that which is Real is forever!

Truth allows the created one to be One with The Creator…….

Truth is to be in The Spirit(Creator) and The Spirit(Creator) in you…….

That which is of a lie never existed and never will, and only genders confusion, destruction, perversion, “confusion, and every evil work” ;-(

Sadly, those who live the LIES that are of mankind’s “imag”ination are destroying the earth(land, air, water, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which is Spirit(Light, Life, Truth, Love, Peace, Hope, Mercy, Faith, etc.) ;-(

Yet there is hope, for “A Simple and Spiritual Life will survive”…….

Such Life is Real and is of, and in, Our Father(Creator, GOD, Great Spirit,,)…….

Peace, in spite of the dis-eases(lies) that are of this world, for “the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one” indeed and Truth…….

Truth is never ending…….

When Truth becomes but a lie, and of The LIE!

Someone had written: “Sorry, Francisco, but religion aside, you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who’ll agree with you that ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ is not an excellent philosophy with which to embrace life.”

Not hard pressed at all for they are yet quite a number of souls who realize that, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is a mistranslation and that “philosophy” but leads to confusion and the justification of every evil work, especially homosexuality and yes even physical warfare! Sadly, there are those who follow the one who loves to “rob, kill and destroy” ;-( 

Sadder yet, Words of Truth, standing alone and apart from The Whole, can be used to delude, deceive, pervert and ultimately justify that which is of The LIE, that which is of mankind’s “imag”ination, which originates in and of “the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life” ;-(

Words of Truth, when spoken from the heart of those who follow their own vain “imag”ination, become but a lie, and are of The LIE. And so it is that because of “religon”, “The Way of Truth” is evil spoken of” ;-(

“Pure religion and undefiled before GOD The Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the world”!

Simply, all other “religion” is impure, defiled and of this wicked world ;-( 

And the “religions” of this wicked world have their portion in the desruction of the earth and perversion of that which is Spirit and Life ;-(

Yet, thankfully there is hope!

For Miracles do happen!

Hope is there would be those who heed The Call to “Come Out of her, MY people” for they will “Come Out” of this world(babylon) and it’s systems of “religion”!

Father Help! and HE does…….

Truth is never ending…….

Pure And Undefiled Religion?

“Pure And Undefiled Religion?”

“Pure religion and undefiled before GOD The Father is this, to visit the fatherless (those children who know not Their Father[Creator]) and widows(those who have not “experienced The Messiah and The Power that raised Him from among the dead”) in their affliction and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the world…….”  (James 1:27)

Simply, all other religion is impure and defiled…….

And notice that “pure and undefiled” religion is for the individual, a Brother
or Sister doing The Will of Our Father, led of The Holy, Set Apart, Spirit…….

And “Brothers and Sisters” is not “religion”, for what are Brothers and Sisters if not Family? Would not The Family of The Only True GOD, “The Body of The Messiah”, be much closer than a natural, fleshly family?
.
What is declared to be “religion” today is truly the devil’s playground…….
.
And Faith will not create a system of religion…….

Hope is there would be those who take heed unto The Call of The Only True GOD to “Come Out of her, MY people”!

For they will “Come Out” of this wicked world(babylon) and it’s systems of religion, into “the glorious Liberty of The Children of The Only True GOD”.

They will no longer be of those who are destroying the earth(land, air, water, vegetation, creatures)” and perverting that which is Spirit(Light, Truth, Life, Love, Peace, Hope, Faith, Mercy, Grace, Miracles, etc.).

Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(religion) that is of this world and it’s systems of religion, for “the WHOLE(not just a portion) world is under the control of the evil one” (1John5:19) indeed and Truth…….

Truth is never ending…….

A Vision of Submission and Love

Before it was revealed to me that “religion” was Anti-Messiah i received the following vision. The vision revealed that which was of The Truth, and The Truth will always expose the lies and dis-order that are of this world’s systems of “religion”!

I was in search of, what i at one time called, the “church”, for a number of years prior to my receiving the vision that i will now share with you. In that “search” i heard many preach and speak of the need for “husbands to love their wives”.

Ephesians 5:25 was the prime reference for such preaching. “Husbands, love your wives, even as The Messiah also loved the ecclesia(church), and gave Himself for it.” It should be noted that “Love” is not a husband and wife sharing their natural affection for one another, which is referred to as “coming together again” in 1 Corinthians7:5.

And Eph 5:25 was preached and preached, again and again, and i wondered, “why is it that Ephesians 5:25 was recorded after and not before 5:22”, and “why is it no one preaches a message concerning those verses just prior to Ephesians 5:25”?
 
Eph 5:22-25 “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Master(Lord). For the husband is the head of the wife, even as The Messiah is the Head of the ecclesia(church), and He is the saviour of the body. Therefore, as the ecclesia is subject unto The Messiah, so let the wives be subject unto their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as The Messiah also loved the ecclesia, and gave Himself for it”.

Well the “why no one preaches concerning the verses just prior to Eph 5:25” was readily answered as i began to recognize the manipulative processes used by women who desired to dominate the men folk within their particular ecclesia. And yes, that domination began at “home”.

However, the question of verse order, “why verses 5:22-24 prior to verse 5:25?” was one thing i still could not comprehend.

And today i yet remain thankful to GOD that i could not comprehend the verse order because that caused me to cry unto HIM for understanding, and HE provided such understanding in a vision, a revelation!

In the vision there were two hands, a right hand and a left hand. And there was a person running about, to and fro in the left hand, and it was revealed the left hand was mine and that the one running about, to and fro, in the left hand was “I” in days that were thankfully long since gone. Days when “I” was “doing my own thing” seeking my own way, self-willed indeed and Truth.

And the right hand in the vision?

It was revealed that the right hand in the vision represented The Hand of GOD!
 
It was then revealed that in those times past, when i was seeking to “do my own thing”, sadly, i did not know that GOD loved me. “I” did not know GOD. “I” was my ‘god’.

Then by the Grace of GOD, the time came when HE revealed HIMSELF unto me. And then HE led me to HIS Son, and HIS Son, The Messiah, led me back to the One i once knew as “GOD”. However, the ONE i had known only as my “GOD”, i now knew as “Our Father”! The GOD and Father of The Messiah was now Our GOD and  Our Father!

All Thanks, Glory And Praise Be Unto “Our Father”!

Then it was revealed that when i submitted unto Our GOD, when i was delivered from my own hand, seeking my own will, and into HIS Hand, desiring HIS Will, it was at that moment i knew HE Loved me.

Yes, Our GOD and Father even Loved me when i was not submitted unto HIM, yet “I” could not experience HIS Love, receive HIS Love, or believe HE Loved me until “I” submitted unto HIM, HIS Will, HIS Way!

And then it was revealed that it is the same with a husband and wife.

When the wife submits, only then does she realize that her husband truly loves her. Oh, her husband loved her all the time, it’s just that she could not believe, receive, or experience the love her husband had for her until she submitted unto him.

And so the simplicity of, and the need for, the “verse order” was revealed.

Apart from submission, Love can not be received, GOD to Messiah, Messiah to man and man to woman. Love is given, yet only in submission can Love be received.

Men and women are not the “same” and Thank GOD for the difference.”Our Father” has HIS Order, “HE is The HEAD of The Messiah, The Messiah is the Head of the man, and man is the head of the woman”.(ICor11:3)

So why question”The ONE GOD, Father of ALL”?

Apart from the Spirit of GOD, The Spirit of Truth, women rule over men, and as they seek and desire to dominate, they scream, “you don’t love me, you don’t love me”!

For until a wife submits unto her husband she can not receive and experience the Love her husband was given, to give unto her.

Yet there is hope for such women, and the men they dominate.

There is Hope that there would be those who “see” Life as it should be.

For Miracles do happen!

Hope is there will be those who experience The Miracle that is receiving “love of The Truth” for they will “see” that The Only True GOD is a GOD of Order, not dis-order! And The Life and Love is only realized by those who submit unto, and abide in, HIS Order.

Dis-order but plays it’s part in The Destruction and Perversion of Creation ;-(

“A Simple and Spiritual Life is the only Life that will survive”!

Forever…….

Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) and dis-order that is of this wicked world and it’s systems of religion, for “the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one” (1 John 5:19) indeed  and Truth…….

Truth is never ending…….

)-; Oh, The Games People Play ;-(

 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”(Is 5:20)

“For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of GOD; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised in the DISCERNMENT of that which is good and that which is evil.” (Heb 5:13-14) 

Discernment, why?  Now there are those who would testify that discernment is not needful, not realizing that every choice, every yes or no they voice requires such. Others would accuse those who exercise discernment of ‘judging’ and/or self-righteousness. Truth is that discernment is choice’s partner in life, especially for those who desire to “cleave to that which is good”. 

As concerning ‘good’ and ‘evil’? Well the ‘god of this world’, he who is “the father of the lies”, “d”evil, he has made a game of such ;-(  The “gevid’ game!  A deadly game and there are many participants, all of whom are losers ;-(

First you begin with two evils, such as there are in physical warfare among the nations of this world, all of whom serve “the god of this world”. Now when warfare commences between two nations and they begin to murder each other, most onlookers naturally ‘choose’ sides. They have ‘discerned’ that this side, or that side, is the “righteous(good)” side so, they align themselves with that nation(s).

Now if it were a case of them believing they had chosen for the lesser ‘evil’, well that would yet be a problem, yet not as grave a problem as is caused by what usually happens.

For those who have chosen sides(and i speak not of those who believe killing and war is a ‘good’ and necessary thing), the lesser ‘evil’ in their own eyes gets their support and sympathy. And as the chains of “strong delusion” bind them tighter and tighter, the lesser ‘evil’ becomes their version of  ‘good'(gevid) ;-(  Such is the way a lie becomes ‘white’,  shadows become light; lust, love; and that which is of this “wicked world” the desire of their heart ;-(  

Sad ;-( Very sad indeed ;-( And The Spirit must flee ;-(

WWII was a prime example. One of the nations, declared ‘good’ by the ‘christian’ religious systems, perpetrated the greatest act of terrorism yet known to mankind, as tens of thousands of civilians died in an instant. That same nation, the us of a, rebelled against authority, and now seeks to put down all rebellion that is not of their kind, which they would call the ‘good’ kind. They won’t accept the fact that all rebellion is of the flesh and is ‘evil’, for they were born in the bloodshed of rebellion. Using force of any kind, or the use of any thing that would provoke a nation of this “wicked world” to use destructive force, is not ‘good’.

Yet the religious systems that are of the ‘god of this world’, which are systems of “strong delusion”, have made ‘gray’ there favorite color and so their version of “good” has become but another form of “evil(gevid)” ;-(

Sadly, “Truth lies dead in the streets” of this “wicked world” ;-(

There is yet hope that many would choose for the ‘good’, that many would choose to declare the ‘lesser evil’ to be just what it is, ‘evil’. That can not happen without ‘discernment’ for many of you read, and read again that “the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one” and yet you remain steadfast in your love for a certain portion of the ‘WHOLE”. And such worldly ‘love’ soon causes one to believe the ‘WHOLE’ is but a ’portion’;-(

Now if you believe what this world, and some of it’s religious systems, call the ‘bible,’ why do you delude your own selves. Why make the ‘WHOLE’ but a ‘portion’? Is it because you are comfortable?  Those who find their comfort in, and of, this wicked, evil world, will soon find themselves conforming to that which makes them comfortable ;-(

Are you feeding on the fruit “of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”? Or is your food The Truth revealed in the Testimonies by “of a cloud of witnesses”? Are you one of the witnesses? Or have you chosen to be of those who “wrest the scriptures unto their own destruction”?

Simply that which is of The Only True GOD, Father of ALL is Good, all else is evil(not Good)……

“Exercise your senses”, “stand in the gap” and above all receive “a love of The Truth”, without which The Life remains but a shadow and “the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life” cause one to call “good, evil and evil, good” ;-( Quit playing the game!

Thankfully, there is Hope!

For Miracles do happen!

Hope is that there would be those who experience The Miracle that is receiving “a love of The Truth”.

Unless one receives “a love of The Truth”, The Life will remain but a shadow ;-(

Peace, in spite of the dis-eases(games people play) that are of this wicked world, for “the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one” indeed and Truth…….

Truth is never ending……. 

A Spiritual Connection

Steve wrote: “Of course, a deeper connection is needed to create true empathy, but that’s a start.”

The only “deeper connection” is in and of The Spirit, and such a “connection” extends to all of Creation(land, air, water, vegetation, creatures, Light, Truth, Life, Love, Peace, Hope, Mercy, Grace, Simplicity, Miracles, etc..).

Sadly, mankind’s “imag”ination is destroying and perverting Creation as religion leads the multitudes along “the broad way of destruction”.

Pure religion and undefiled before GOD The Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unspotted by the world.” (James1:27)

All other “religion” is impure and defiled!

And “A Simple and Spiritual Life is the only Life that will survive”…….

Truth is never ending…….

Heidi wrote: “The Golden Rule isn’t called Golden for no reason. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” It just seems so hard for some people to grasp that concept.”

Not hard for the perverse to “grasp that concept” in your version of the “golden rule” ;-( Just another example of how “religion” has misused and abused The Truth ;-(

The Words of Truth, standing alone and apart from The Whole, can be used to delude, deceive, pervert and ultimately justify that which is of The LIE, that which is of mankind’s “imag”ination ;-(

Yet there is hope!

For Miracles do happen!
