HOPE: Happy Opportunities and Personal Empathy with God

cloud9rough

Sleeping sound is coming of age, all Spiritual leaders need time to recharge. Mortals need time to relax; Mastering Prayer before slumber is up-close and personal. A good night’s sleep restores Body and Mind, but each Soul needs Love. Untainted petitions to God Almighty strengthens Character.

Christ like charisma broadens a frontrunners HOPE: Happy Opportunities and Personal Empathy with God. Do you feel me? Spiritual charm is attractive, but a newly Consecrated soul electrifies Heaven and Earth. Angels and Saints are ecstatic to hear God granting Grace; will they rejoice next at Your place?

“Now about the service to the holy ones, it is superfluous for me to write to you, for I know your eagerness, about which I boast of you to the Macedonians, that Achaia has been ready since last year; and your zeal has stirred up most of them. Nonetheless, I sent the brothers so that our boast about you might not prove empty in this case, so that you might be ready, as I said, for fear that if any Macedonians come with me and find you not ready we might be put to shame (to say nothing of you) in this conviction.

So I thought it necessary to encourage the brothers to go on ahead to you and arrange in advance for your promised gift, so that in this way it might be ready as a bountiful gift and not as an exaction.” (2 Corinthians 9:1-5 NABRE)

I’m ecstatic that folks are taking time to Pray. The Spirit moves in mysterious ways when invited in Song or Symbolic yearnings. Jesus promised a Majestic One to stir souls into Sainthood, sharing earnestly each night has brought millions together Forever.

 

In the Midst of Society: Salvation is at hand!


Martino! / Foter / CC BY

A society in Infamy and Spiritual Stigmata lacks Wisdom, profession of Faith, and Communal well-being, but there’s Rising Hope. An article about “‘Doing Good’ in today’s Wall Street Journal gaveled Government-Aid in favor of ‘Social Enterprise’ as a way to aid marginalized people.”[1] Speaking for Jesus and a Hallowed Spirit one might echo; Salvation is at hand.

Lord knows how to negotiate Shame, Seclusion and Sinfulness through Sober Vocations; He came to Earth to restore Faith and Heal wounded souls. Living upright in an Immoral Society is dreadful; so God is negotiating an Out for both the Affluent and Unfortunate; help one another or must Bust!

“I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing! There is a baptism with which I must be baptized, and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished. Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.

From now on a household of five will be divided, three against two and two against three; a father will be divided against his son and a son against his father, a mother against her daughter and a daughter against her mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.” (Luke 12:49-53 NABRE)

Heightened spirits are roaming the earth looking to make Peace and restore Faith. Making amends is not always easy, but doing right by your neighbor is Rewarding. Can you convey Hope, Truth, and Selflessness to a weary soul? Then come be a partner in Faith, Jesus controls Good Things to come.

Many Religious Gurus can claim: God’s Unleashed, Romance, and Understanding


Beyond the Trail / Foter / CC BY-NC

In the beginning God came close, the Essence of Life, and His Kingdom is present in All Creation. Any religious Guru can claim: God’s Unleashed, Romance, and Understanding; but only through Christ can the Holy Spirit allow access into Christianity.

The Body of Christ began in Prayer, deep meditative Love by Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Imagine her message from the angel Gabriel; will you conceive God’s child. Then contemplate her Naked, Bowed in Prayer on a riverbank. All at once an essence brings Mary’s forehead into the water with a YES; that water’s ripple became our Baptismal Font seeded by God for all humanity; His Life Giving Water present in Believers.

“Then the angel showed me the River of Life-Giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of its street.” (Revelation 22:1-2)

The streets are filled with Believers. Some Novice, others Ordained or simply blessed with eternal Salvation. God is a mystery. Today, please contemplate being or becoming part of His Prayerful Kingdom on earth.

Start this Coming New Year Living Righteous: Live Like Jesus!

Casual Crooks

Have you grown accustomed to Lawmakers, Politicians, or Clergy who insist people must conform? Do the Rules, Traditions, and Duties set in place ensure societal well-being; or are they administrative jargon made to keep the mainstream of people Underfoot. The Holy One warns about Casual Crooks who collectively Collude, Levy the poor and downtrodden, or Excise away Faith in the Church.

Jesus taught us to Love and Treat neighbors as Children of God. Our Lord expects nothing less from each Believer. However, societal norms often conflict with what is right and just. Do sanctioned candidates rule according to Scripture or Supporters who vote or promote them into office; once a Governmental or Religious official takes office do they orchestrate their duties justly; or would God chastise our Friends in High Places.

“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.” (Romans 12:1-5 NLT)

God has given all a chance to come clean, to repent, and to start this coming New Year living righteous. No matter how you or I used to think. No matter how or why others act differently. If ruling layers of our Society would Live Like Jesus a bit each day, endowing Spiritually rather than Materially all the time, the Holy One might Bless those who they’re obliged to SERVE with eternal Salvation.

His Parable and Presence took Religion by storm: He began a Community of Messengers

Ministries

Christ as a Culture is very becoming, His Parable and Presence took Religion by storm; Ethos sprouted and Spirits sprang forth as God ushered in New Life. Overflowing with Spirit and Living Word the Christ, King of Kings, spoke candid to those who toiled and labored; bold and forthright to wrongdoers, and demeaning to Religious Elite who hid and prospered behind discriminating laws. None would escape Christ’s plea for Justice.

“Those who do well as deacons will be rewarded with respect from others and will have increased confidence in their faith in Christ Jesus. I am writing these things to you now, even though I hope to be with you soon, so that if I can’t come for a while, you will know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God.

“This is the church of the living God, which is the pillar and support of the truth. Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith: Christ appeared in the flesh and was shown to be righteous by the Spirit. He was seen by angels and was announced to the nations. He was believed on in the world and was taken up into heaven.” (1 Timothy 3:13-16 NLT)

All is Bliss and Bountiful in the Community of Messengers; our Church has sprouted organically through Space and Spirit. A Galaxy of God-Will awaits converts to Christ; as followers take root across the Globe, the incidence of Divinity will mesmerize all nations with eternal Peace, Joy and Happiness.

The audacity of Spirit and Flesh is the Living Word of God: share Him!


Instant Vantage / Foter / CC BY-SA

Do You feel free to read Scripture, to seek Salvation, or to Call on Christ? If you visit this Ministry often you know God wants all humanity to Call His name. However, in many parts of the World open worship of Jesus is not allowed; there people are Blinded by Culture, Cunning, and Traditions of their Ancestors.

Our Lord wants the Whole World to know Salvation is at hand; His Hand. God’s Word is Greater than Gold and Wiser than Human Creed; it can influence order and bind discord with its mere utterance. The Audacity of Spirit and Flesh is the Living Word of God, share Him often to Live in Harmony.

”When Jesus had finished giving these instructions to his twelve disciples, he went out to teach and preach in towns throughout the region. John the Baptist, who was in prison, heard about all the things the Messiah was doing. So he sent his disciples to ask Jesus, “Are you the Messiah we’ve been expecting, or should we keep looking for someone else?”

Jesus told them, “Go back to John and tell him what you have heard and seen— the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the Good News is being preached to the poor. And tell him, ‘God blesses those who do not turn away because of me. (Matthew 11:1-6 NLT)

New Living Words are being shared across the Planet, their gravity is boundless. As Ministers mature in Faith their past fades and New Life begins. The Good News filters away any lingering fallacy about God and they cling to Truth who IS above ALL.

Three-quarters of the World live in Darkness: Life separated from the Light of God

Darkness to Light

Three-quarters of the World live in Darkness lacking Life, Love, and Luster. Natural Life depends upon Higher Beings for adoration; Humans adore making, sharing and receiving Love; Conversely, most modern societies lack the Gleam of God who is Love incarnated as Christ. The Son of God, enthralled with Nature, Spirit, and Flesh was incarnated with affection to restore Life separated from the Light of God.

I Thank You in advance for choosing Life, His whole being Loves you dearly. God gathers individuals Supernaturally into the Light. People are united in Spirit to Love and Live Christ-Like not by choice, but by God’s many Graces. Each Charm bestowed upon you has special meaning in Christ’s community. Moving out of Darkness is mind-boggling alone so God sent Help from within the Nucleus of Light; Jesus, whose Spirit is alive as Scripture.

“Jesus replied, I assure you, unless you are Born Again, you can never see the Kingdom of God. “What do you mean?” exclaimed Nicodemus. “How can a man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?” Jesus replied, “The TRUTH is, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being Born of Water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives New Life from Heaven!”

So don’t be surprised by my statement that You must be Born Again. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it is coming from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.” (John 3:3-8 NLT)

Nobody knows exactly what God wishes, nor when, nor where each spectacle will take place. He specializes in Restoration, but produces from Scratch. The Light in Creation is just out of Physical Touch, but in control of ALL things Physically, Supernaturally, and Spiritually roaming this Planet. Get in tune and stay in tune with Him here with us who are Born Again at Cyber Church.

Jesus Toiled and Labored, but did Not Go-with-the Flow


w0LD / Foter / CC BY-NC-ND

This morning as I was absorbing the love of God when the Holy Spirit made me realize that Christ too, grew from a child into a man. Imagine His Boyhood, Adolescence, and Bouts with puberty. As a child Jesus fed upon His Father’s word. And each syllable prepared Him to guide all souls towards heaven, but first He became a Carpenter. I presume He apprenticed under his dad’s Guidance and Served society. Along the way His fully human hands were Scraped, Smashed, Bruised, and Bled-Red as do any Craftsman.

Although Jesus kept God’s commands in His heart He still Toiled and Labored until it was time to shine a New Light into this World. After a forty-day Trek in the desert He began a Ministry that would eventually become our Church. Christ did not Go-with-the-Flow of humanity. Instead, He brought to Light God’s word; sacrifice and humility now flows through Him and into all Nations.

“But you, Timothy, belong to God; so run from all evil things, and follow what is right and good. Pursue a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight for what we believe. Hold tightly to eternal life that God has given you, which you have confessed so well before many witnesses. And I command you before God, who gives life to all, and before Christ Jesus, who gave a good testimony before Pontius Pilate, that you obey His commands with all purity.

Then no one can find fault with you from now until our Lord Jesus Christ returns. For at the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only Almighty God, King of Kings, and Lord of lords. He alone can never die and He lives in light so brilliant that no human can approach Him. No one has ever seen Him, nor ever will. To Him be honor and power forever, Amen.” (1 Timothy 6

Walk with Jesus

Paul told Timothy that His services would better serve God than humanity. No matter what Material, Vision or Service folks provide to others it should create Social Justice. When you are scrutinized by others, as is most certain, does our Lord’s will prevail? If so, then what is Written and Preached as Truth throughout this world has called you to bear witness to the Living Word of God.

 

Assume what is Free and Simple: SO WHAT IS HARD AND HEAVY is consumed in silence


AlicePopkorn / Foter / CC BY-ND

Assume what is Free and Simple: SO WHAT IS HARD AND HEAVY is consumed in Silence. Jesus is renowned for Silent Meditation as are His most prominent followers. Let’s share a phrase from Thomas Merton: “It is a more profound depth of Faith, a knowledge too deep to be grasped by words, images, or clear concept…”[1] Brother Merton, a Trappist monk, underwent spiritual and emotional changes in life so you and I could better contemplate Righteous Living.

Letting God take what is Hard and Heavy inspires integrity. Truth is, nobody is powerful enough to muscle themselves through life outside of God. Those who are Born Again can humble themselves in Contemplation and are closest to God. Words can depict Images and images can instill Beauty, but repeated Silent Prayer blends the Holy Spirit, Thoughts, and Imagery into Righteous Living.

“Therefore since we have been made right in God’s sight by Faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our Faith, Christ has brought us into this place of the highest privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us—they help us endure. And endurance develops strength of character in us, and character strengthens or confident expectation of Salvation. And this expectation will not disappoint us. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love.” (Romans 5:1-5 NLT)

If silent contemplation is your specialty you have already received certain gifts from God; Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to move us into action. Those outside of religion cannot sit still long enough to Enjoy, Serve, or Converse with God; His Love is Free and Simple, a byproduct of Peace, and a gift of Tranquility in Jesus name; Amen.

Almighty God issues Free Will: to whom will You cling?

Jesus of Nazerath The principle of Parish and People is a profound journey in Christ. The Holy Spirit strikes a Spiritual accord within God’s community. Harmony is truly right and just, but human nature is not. Hence a catalyst of Faith led by Jesus of Nazareth came to earth to ingrain norms and values for passage into heaven.

Religious ministers are accustomed to Sharing, Serving, and Sending aid to those in need. Nowadays, each township no matter its depth or width, nation or location has been called to be a witness for Almighty God; Who issues Free Will through many channels. This ministry is Christian based and helps unify all those who Live and Love a devout Life.

“ No one has ever gone to heaven and returned. But the Son of Man has come down from heaven. And as Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life.

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.” (John 3:13-18 NLT)

What you have read today is not new but broken down and revisited to invoke Spiritual Renewal. Each human being has an opportunity in Christ, for Salvation is limitless through Time, Space, and Spirit. I’ve lived a life apart from the dominion of God and its ugly, but Truth and Service in Christ set me free from the unruly of this World and its awesome! But the choice is yours; to whom will you cling?
