Come out of Her My People

What’s wrong with spotting the ‘false prophet’?
. . . Nothing . . .
But as we can observe in the church of ‘Ephesus’; we see for the first time that it is possible for that observation to become part of a few obsessive habits that have the capability to become monkeys on our back.

 ~  complex enough, that it can consume the ‘virtue’ within you, to the point that it can cause you to forget the “importance” of your ‘first love’ ~ 

 Ephesus was the first ecclesia to find out that many caused themselves to become double-crossed by those very pitfalls .

But I have this against you: You have abandoned your first love. Therefore, keep in mind how far you have fallen. Repent and perform the deeds you did at first. But if you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.

However in today’s times that style of ‘ecclesia’ has become the predominate church and it is not possible anymore to force the false prophet out of it anyhow: but now we instead, are told to rather . . .
 “Come out of her my people”.

And yes, the harlot-church has now become a typical, socially accepted 'threshing floor' for many who attempt to follow, believe and trust in the Son of God. The time is at hand for that very threshing floor ‘itself ’ to become threshed; by Our Father in Heaven. The "Word of God Himself" is the one who is seeing to it that the "threshing of the harlot church" takes place.

We (true believers) are not told to thresh it ourselves; but instead are told to: ‘Come out of 'her' my people’.

The intent of focus on this blog is not the spotting of the false prophet (And He has been spotted); or the unearthing of the 'Mystery Church of Babylon', the 'Harlot' (many of those who truly ‘know’ Jesus have spotted it too);

 Rather than focusing on the 'beast' and the' false profit'; the focus and the greater intention of this blog is instead; to suggest some steps to take on  . . . How To:’ Come out of Her my people’ . . .
 (leaving the ‘first love’ relationship with the Son of God intact, and preparing for the marriage supper of the lamb.

To ‘Do a solid with God’ is just a contemporary way of saying' leave the harlot church and return to God Himself'. . . And instead:

" Let the person who has ears listen to what "The Spirit" says to His church."
" Let the person who has ears listen to what "Gods Spirit" says to the Ecclesia." 
 "Let those who have ears listen to what the "Holy Ghost" says to
  "Let the person who has ears listen to what "Ruach HaKodesh'' says to "True  Believers."

"Let those who have received the "Baptism of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost" listen, understand, and continue in Him". 

When that 'Harlot' has been 'threshed' by God; the Heavens will rejoice, and we also will rejoice with them.


Is the Bible the word of God?

Is the Bible the word of God? . . . the Bible is the 'written-word' of God. Howbeit; does not equal being 'alive' itself . . . it does not equal being 'the Holy Spirit' Himself . . . it does not have a 'power-source' of itself . . . it just is not God Himself  . . . And,  it just can not act on the behalf of God.

There is a greater "Word" of God (Himself). That 'Word' which in the beginning: before anything which was created, was created; 'That' Word was with God; and was God; (and 'is' God). 

God created everything through him, and nothing that was created, was created except through 'Him'.

'That' Word became flesh and shined in the 'darkness' and the 'darkness' comprehended not 'that' Word . . . 'that' Word is 'life' . . . 'that' Word is 'spirit' . . .'that' Word is 'power' . . . and 'that' Word does act on the behalf of God Himself.

And 'that' Word cannot be 'written' on paper with ink.

Those who 'trust' in 'that' Word will find that they 'can' understand the bible; but those who 'genuinely' trust 'that' Word also soon come to find that they do not really have too much of a 'need' to place their 'initial security' in the 'written-word' anymore, anyhow . . . because 'that' ~ "Word of God Himself", is the 'greater choice to 'count on', look to, and believe 'in'.

Bible thumping or aggressive to strict arguing over the understanding or misunderstanding of the ‘written-word’ verses, seems to me to be nothing more than punches that are thrown to make great bragging right stories for the winner so that they would appear to others to be ‘the teacher’. It seems to infer that the winner of the quibbling contest usually wins the right to say ‘you need to get into the ‘written-word’ or you are not really approved of by God.  

The concern that I smell within that style of osmosis is that the process (when used by mortal men) always leaves an opening  for the winner to create a ‘doctrine’ with; trying to prove they have that ‘peacock swagger’ to speak on the behalf of God.

Again, the bible is not God; and it does not perform nor can it act on the behalf of God Himself:  it is only the 'written' word.  Anything that plays business with it goes against the very thing that the very 'wisdom' within it; bumps up against.

Have 'you' received the Holy Spirit since you believed? . . . If not, just ask God Himself for it. If you, being a mere mortal know how to give what is good to your children, . . . how much more will your Father in Heaven know how to give that which is  a 'good gift' to you.

   Repent; and prefer to place your trust in 'that'  (greater)  Word which the 'written- word' can only point to.

. . . Why? . .
 Because . . . 'that' Word . . . is the Word which truly 'is' alive.


Christians are not supposed to judge

Christians are not supposed to judge; yet they are also required to spread the Word of God: What message should they be sending then?


                              They should be sending the message: 

To seek God's face. To seek 'His Rule' in their life and set their heart to live in 'His'  kingdom.

And like God Himself; The Kingdom of Heaven is a spiritual kingdom ~ not a brick and mortar 'religious assemblage' earthly kingdom.

And to make 'every effort' to live 'daily', in the reality of a right relationship with God Himself.

The Son of God said to preach (circulate) that Gospel (the Good News) to the people in the world and see to it they understand that they can receive God's own Spirit to teach and guide them 'personally'.

That 'Good News' is now 'trusting' and 'receiving' of the baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit to be led out of darkness instead of trying to use the 'written-word' to accomplish that goal .   Those who already 'believe' and have 'received that 'Holy Spirit, may lay hands on you to receive it; or you yourself can ask our Father in Heaven Himself for it, to receive it also . . . 'that's it,  period'. 

That  'way'  is now possible because the things necessary to make it work that way were made perfect by the 'works' of the Son of God, Himself. 

The Kingdom of Heaven is inside you . . . it's here today . . . it's not something you wait until your body dies so you can enter into it.

Believers in the Son of God are not supposed to judge; yet they are also required to spread the Gospel (the Good News) of God. . . Brow-beating others over it is not acceptable ~ but instead, only giving to them the Good News that their is now a greater choice they can consider, if they choose to do so.

That is the message they should be circulating.

It's pretty simple; The guidance and instruction of the Holy Spirit will put it all together after that for those who continue in it,  and for those who genuinely 'trust' and' practice' only in desiring  the leading of His Holy Spirit.That's what the message is all about.

  The Kingdom of Heaven 'is' designed to work, function, and give instruction and guidance . . . inside you


Where I settled in Spiritual Understanding

Most of us tend to make spiritual dimension ‘choices’ by using common but different filters. Life experiences, friends, family, media influence, written word choices both of the Bible and or other books; and also our society’s most popular religious draw: However, too few of us probably actually consider God’s own direct drawing of us toward Him, with daily hunger for it. Usually our desire for God is more like a fickle spark in our quest for ‘eternal life’ that most tend to get side-tracked from too easily, shortly after experiencing it's tug. 

This blog is a personal opinion (That’s what blogs generally point to)

 This blog only leans toward the ‘filters’ that I have chosen in my own life. I will say that my predominate filter  ‘is not’ perceiving the ‘Spirit of God’ as a light-footed midwife; but rather THE ‘Teacher and Guide’ honored well above any mortal 'wanna-be' teacher in my life; and that the Words of the Son of God are not ‘sound bites’ to only tickle my ears.
The Holy Spirit is not like an altar boy for me ~ But is instead, is the 'primary' giver of ‘light’ who guides us out of darkness.

We are called to seek the lost sheep who know they are trapped in the darkness, and reveal to them the ‘guide’ who sheds the light for the path to get back home.

 That to me does not seem to be the same thing as seeking those who utter that they are not lost and then continue pestering them in order to proselytize them.

I am sincere about my point of view.

I am not trying to impress the neighborhood, or play 'smack-talk with anyone, or become anybody's teacher; so please don't take it that way. 

My understanding of the purpose of life is to 'live', and be perpetually taught and guided by God Forever. Adam and Eve were created to live in 'that life'. They were side-lined by a smooth talking salesman in the Garden of Eden. The Son of God came to us to redeem us from the consequences of that altercation and restore us to our original purpose. He got it done ~ by giving us the opportunity to again be perpetually taught and guided by God again ~ Forever


Coloring outside the Bible Box

Although we begin to grow a relationship with God and are praying, asking, and are pleading with God Himself for help and support, it may not seem as plain and open when we try to hear or see ‘His’ reply. 

This has to do with the mortal expectation we may have of how God’s Spirit talks to us. If we are looking to hear a thundering voice, or an angelic appearance we will be disappointed.  Prayer is talking to God Himself; at a deeper level than ‘mortal thought’; and listening to ‘His Spirit’ at a depth of understanding greater than our brain is capable of producing. It comes from your inward parts, at a depth hidden below your head and above your belly button; yes, it’s deep inside yourself; and resonates from the ‘bottom of your heart’

Often that 'response' arrives in unexpected and wonderful ways. For you not to miss hearing back from ‘Him’, you have to be listening. It is the listening condition in which you are empty of expectations and are simply paying attention to whatever subtle hints, dawning light awareness of something you suddenly perceive, or spiritual light switches that are flipping on, in and around you. 

The primary truth is that you have to be willing to abandon your own preconceived religious concepts:  making yourself empty of old 'style'  religious mortal thoughts, doctrines, and guilt. Yes, you have to let go of all preconceived dogma within yourself to receive direction through prayer. 

That is what ‘washing’ the inside of the ‘Cup’ is really about. The best path for that ‘empty’ condition to occur is best found by entering into your ‘secret hiding place’ with God, and closing the door ~ Take nothing else in there . . . Nothing else:  ~ and ~ Immerse yourself in His 'wash-bowl'.
That is the 'Spirit of the law' understanding of 'Water Baptism' / the baptism of John the Baptizer which washes and cleans the inside of your soul from old religious teachings that mortals have always used to trust in, as to How to approach God: and to prepare you to receive what's coming next. Yes, it's exactly what 'Water Baptism' points to.
Which 'is' actually the 'Repentance' that Jesus tells us to act on.

God’s response is never loud, and for us to receive it, it is necessary to become both an observer of it and a witness to it. We have to observe without having any objections. With trust we await God’s answer to our heartfelt prayers, but that needs to be done without preconceived old school religious expectations.

 It is like the inward parts of our body having their own eyes and ears and all we are doing is listening and watching. Listen and watch for any tiny changes that may be taking place around us. It is often subtle, and it just ‘dawns’ upon us. Most of time, the answer does not come during prayer; but a little later on.  That answer can be from an ongoing experience, like when you are just talking with someone,  or reading something and finding that  just one single  word; or a few words; or a sentence all of a sudden just ‘high-lights’ itself to us; sometimes it’s a dream or a part of a dream, that for some reason just wants to ‘stand up and shout’.
' It could be anything. '

Toward the understanding;
 that when you see it; ‘it catches your 'inward attention' in it's own dignified way’; and at that point, you really do know that you've got the 'seed' that will grow into the complete answer to what you have been praying about; 

Because the 'seed coat' for your answer to your own 'prayer'  has just germinated within you. That 'silent kaboom' generally is not the complete answer in itself (occasionally it is) ~ but often can bring 'sweet tears' to your soul or set off a 'fireworks display' within your Spirit that makes you want to do a 'victory shout' . . . more often though it is something that 'sprouts' even more understanding in the hours ahead.

Yes, we do need to be careful about what we listen to. ‘It takes a little practice’ to experience and discern what comes from God and what comes from other origins. But it's no more difficult than when an infant is learning to walk; it does take a short amount of time, but overall, not really that long. This is not a weekend adventure however, or a short vacation from mortal life ~ it IS the walk that God intends for each and every day of our life.  Yes, it is the teaching and understanding process from God;  Yes, we will all stumble when we begin. But 'God Himself' is totally capable of correcting us 'Himself', when we  'authentically' trust the ‘Living Him’.

The purpose of life is 'to live' and be perpetually 'taught and guided' by only 
 God Himself'
 . . . Forever . . . 
( as were Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the disciples themselves )
Anything short of that is 'belittling' the 'trust' of the Holy Ghost (the Advocate, the Teacher, The Guide sent by Jesus); and is in danger of making an unacceptable 'cocktail' (by adding leaven to the loaf) of what the Holy Spirit is given to us for the purpose of being 'trusted' in. This is what 'believing' in Jesus is ~ because ~ 'He 'is' the One' who did the things that made it possible. That's why He is the Messiah. That is the New Covenant. The Son of God delivered it, by offering us a baptizing (to refill the inside of our cleaned cup) for those who will Repent of the prior practices of how they used to attempt to approach God ; and to receive the teaching and understanding of The Holy Spirit; in place of that old way. 
. . . Yes, that's what the 'Spirit of the Law' points to in being
  Baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and The Holy Ghost.
It's not written with Paper and Ink to; 'read about' ~ but it's written in 'Spirit' on the table of your heart. designed to cause the 'heart-beat' in your own soul to rather; 'live' in.

it's the 'daily bread' that comes down from Heaven and goes directly in your "bread-basket"
"your" gut level holy instinct.

The old style of using a 'Non Profit organized Assemblage' designed Question and Answer format in praying does not actually work nearly as well as allowing God to teach you according to what 'He'  Himself' knows will become the 'greater' blessing for your  life and for your understanding.  You will begin to recognize the truth in this as you continue on and grow in 'His' promise.

Science for example has its sets of 'rules of science';'rules of nature'. Many wonderful things have been genuinely discovered in the interest of science because someone with 'integrity' decided to listen to their 'guts' and color outside the box of those resistant rules. 

Non-Prophet organized Assemblage (Religion), like science has it's sets of rules (they call them doctrines) and many wonderful things have been also done in the name of God Himself because someone with 'holy integrity' decided to listen to their 'guts' and color outside the box of those resistant religious doctrines and traditions. 

There is a 'holy~truth' in Regard to 'Our Creator' but the clothing of 'Non-Prophet organized Assemblage' (Religion) and 'Science' will always hamper ; truly discovering that 'Truth'.  

There is one last "very weighty measure" to consider in prayer that needs to be added to this. Those times we do not seem to receive an answer . . . there is only one reason we don't . . . That is because when we ask; we ask 'amiss'. To correct that issue it becomes necessary to first take time to  consider this: What is the 'stuff' that we could assume is honestly more important and foremost in the things that Our Father in Heaven would rather desire that we seek from 'Him" at heart?

Example; is it about wishing for the things we think necessary to sustain the basic needs of our life that God doesn't know about? . . . or additional things we don't really need, but desire to obtain anyhow? . . . or who or what group or person we can bond with to help us understand 'Him' better . . . Is 'trinity' doctrine correct or should I believe something different? . . . Which is the best 'church' for me to attend? . . .etc

No, that stuff is not even close . . .'He' already knows about all of those kinds of needs, and they will be taken care of 'automatically'; when we accomplish Repenting
'His Way' : not the 'Non-Profit organized Assemblage' way. 

We first need to consider the deeper, unvirtuous, deficiencies that 'we' ourselves  have become numb to, but are quite obvious and important to 'Him'. 
No, I'm not referring to our 'Letter of the law' Infractions; but rather pointing to examining our own lack of desire for understanding our own failure in thirsting for the 'Spirit of the law'.

The 'conclusion'
 ~ unless the 'seed of Adam'  're-germinates' of the Water, and of the Spirit ~
 it is not possible to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Love the Lord Your God with all your Heart

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength . . . and Love your 'neighbor' as yourself. . . Hang all the Law, and the Prophets on only these two commandments and you will satisfy what God is looking for and observing in you

How do you do that?  It's as elementary and clean and innocent, as observing it through the eyes of a 'little' child. An innocent 'little' child; 'in the beginning'  of their life, is at first just insightful and responsive to those who brought him into existence.

What if you employ those commandments (Not as a model to use in trying to understand  'mortal pulpiters'  continual teachings; or what their books are trying to say)
 - But - 
employ them 'instead of - and in place of'  'mortal pulpiters' continual teachings, guidance and the books they attempt to popularize !

That seems to be the choice that has worked best for me to both exercise and esteem both of
G-d's weightiest commandments.

For me anyhow, it has been as simple as looking at the cause of where nonperformance of those 'two weightiest commandments' began. That downfall all began in the Garden of Eden; with Adam and Eve; and with their forfeiture and loss of God's personal direction and oversight in regard to them. It happened in the heart, soul, mind, and strength of both Adam and Eve.  First, Eve; then Adam, was deceived by being tricked and fooled by what became 'the fall of man'.  It wasn't just Adam and Eve only - on the whole, by and large, all of us mortals would seem to have dishonored God's only ('do not do this'rule ~ not to eat fruit from that same 'Tree of the knowledge of good and evil
 ( laws~rules)
Which are all based on the "Letter of the Law"

It seems to me that we are all just as 'out of line' as Adam and Eve came to be.
Because that was the beginning of the Non-Profit organized Assemblage that has become subtly know as 'church' and or 'religion' today

That fruit was not really an apple  (I think you know that)  . . .  it is the weightier principle of the 'pasturing' on; pursuing; and then acting on the 'concern' of the doing of 'good' and not doing 'evil' as the best way for 'mankind' to please God;  learning  the difference between 'what is right' and the 'what is wrong' . . . and then concentrating our efforts to not do the continual ever-growing list of what is wrong (rules/laws), instead of being obedient to the 'expectation' behind those two commandments of G-d - (Himself).

Jesus (Yahshua) says 'no one', yes, no one born of women, notwithstanding,  has ever fulfilled those burdens of not doing what was 'wrong', and the doing what was 'right' laws, better than John the Baptist (Elijah the prophet) 
. . . nevertheless . . .
That even the least in the Kingdom of Heaven is still 'greater' than John . . . and always remember:  John already knew that Yahshua (Jesus) was the Messiah;  John spoke that Yahshua was the 'one' to follow and not John (Himself) any longer. And John also, already knew that Yahshua would 'baptize in the Holy Ghost'.

(When Yahshua came to John to be baptized by John . . . John stopped Him and said 'I am in need of being baptized by you', so why are you coming to me? - John's holy instinct was spot-on to Yahshua's purpose.)
 . . . John knew. . . John wasn't looking  for a new 'religion' or what a new religion should be called; John was just seeking Yahshua's Baptism; John was well familiar with 'water-baptism' and what it stood for already; John  just wanted  to
 '' step up" to trusting in Yahshua's baptism instead.

Can we say that we are 'greater' than John the Baptist?

 How do we process this?

Yahshua was sent by His Father (G-d Himself) with a promise of how that would take place. It required some 'honorable' , 'holy', single-minded works by Yahshua Himself; along with the giving of that answer from 
 G-d Himself  ~ to 'us' ~  And  Jesus (Yahshua) got it done!

The simple, easy to remember instruction of Yahshua Himself is
 . . . Repent, the Kingdom of G-d 'is' at hand ~ Receive the Holy Spirit . . .
What does 'Repent' mean?  
It truly means;
Change the way you think and act about what it 'really' takes to please G-d.

 Return to: (Totally Trusting in) - Loving the Lord your God with all your heart and soul, and all your strength . . . and Loving your 'neighbor' as yourself.
( Authentically; instead of trying to schmooze thru by pretending to 'be trustworthy' to a never ending inventory of 'morality rules' and 'doctrines' that mortals really don't fully understand or obey very well anyhow . . . a 'light-weight' example would be just deceitfully telling 'little whitewashed lies'
. . . or . . . 
believing God will 'bust you' when you don't go to church .) 

How do we do that?

By abandoning that 'cosmetic way' of thinking that we please G-d by just name-dropping the name of His only begotten Son; (where we 'fancy' it's 'flavor' could be-fit our words) and then, all over again; actually just return to continue on, by again 'trying' to do what we presume is good, and that continual 'trying' to stay away from those things we think are evil.  G-d's own  'living wisdom' can see thru 'cosmetic centrals' sly disguise easily.   Instead; receive and start 'totally trusting' in the Baptism of Yahshua in it's place. 

 John the Baptist was not approved to baptize with 'that' baptism.  That is an 'innocent' distinction between authority regarding those baptisms.

It is better understood as the 'innocent' distinction between John's 
'Baptizing in water' and  'Baptizing' in the name of the  Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost .  . .  selah!

That 'tree of the knowledge of  'good and evil laws~rules' was from a 'residual Non-Profit organized Assemblage (religious) social order and their angels' who were operative on earth at the time. 

 (What residual religious social order?) ~ the ones whom Cain was sent out to in the Land of Nod where he acquired a wife and bore children; east of Eden: when Cain was banished from the presence of the Lord.  . . . 
The purpose of 'Adam' was not ever intended to duplicate that same 'residual Non-Profit organized Assemblage' or their angels who had left their first estate, or their 'teachings'; but rather to replace it by rather ''trusting' in the 'Spirit of G-d', Himself; instead, and 'only' Him' ~ made complete with a suitable, in character 'Help Meet' ~ instead ~.  / to trust G-d's Living Word completely, instead of the knowledge of good and evil rules.
 The nutrition and nourishment for 'us' is the 'bread' that comes from Heaven only. (pure innocence) - to love (totally trusting) the 'Word' of the Lord our G-d with 'an eye that is single' in that trust ~ The Living Word that was (in the beginning); before anything was created; with G-d  and was G-d and nothing was created, that was created, without Him. And the "Word became flesh" ~ not paper and ink with a leather binding! ~ Who did not accomplish pleasing Our Father with quills and ink. ~ But rather pleased G-d by baptizing with the Holy Spirit.

Pure Love is really just  - Total Trust in Someone else.

It's not a 'feeling' of needing to show our love to them because of  'guilty conscience' ;  or finding ourselves 'embarrassed' in front of them, or an 'urgent  pinch feeling' of the need to be 'bailed out' because we feel we are being pressured about being 'written up' by some 'superior acting' ; 'full of hot air'; know-it-all legal beagle. 

Who is the Lord your God?
If down inside yourself, you don't really know . . . then this blog is not even directed to you.
Who is your Neighbor?
He is the 'friend' who lived among us, who can now be 'in' us. He rescued us when we were beaten up and left on the road 'half dead': He poured wine and oil in our wounds and left us in the care of the 'innkeeper' until he returns. He is the Son of G-d. He paid the price for our 'iniquity'. 

And what about that 'tricky' accord of doing what's right, and not doing what's wrong  (laws/rules) . . . in order to please G-d?  . . . Well, that will truly take care of itself by the baptism in the Spirit of  'God Himself '.
 . . .  you receive that by unquestionably and wholly asking our Father in Heaven for 'Yahshua's Baptism'. . . 
 "Totally" Trust in how 'that' baptism progressively functions to satisfy what
 G-d's purpose for us really is!  

Don't use the 'Knowledge of that 'good and evil' (rules/law stuff) as the 'driver' for Yahshua's Baptism, or, His two weightiest commandments . . . you will spoil how they really work; . . .and you will spoil how it fixes the matter of sin! 

Allow the Holy Spirit to give the 'light' for both; The Holy Spirit shows them in 
'pure and innocent color',
(like the colors of a 'rainbow')
 instead of those knowledge of 'good and evil' ; right and wrong; black, white, and gray-area colours.

G-d is Spirit and G-d is Truth: He is' totally capable' of causing that healing-cure to take place within those who truly and authentically trust and respect Him . . . and He is totally capable of correcting us (Himself) if and when we err.

Love (placing all your 'faith' only in) the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul,  and all your strength . . . and Loving your 'neighbor' as yourself.
All the other laws / rules  will take care of themselves IF you just 'abide' in the 'baptism of the Yahshua'  - (the Holy Spirit) - and in these two commandments.
