“Do not deceive yourselves; no one makes a fool of God. You will reap exactly what you plant. If you plant in the field of your natural desires, from it you will gather the harvest of death; if you plant in the field of the Spirit, from the Spirit you will gather the harvest of eternal life. So let us not become tired of doing good; for if we do not give up, the time will come when we will reap the harvest. So then, as often as we have the chance, we should do good to everyone, and especially to those who belong to our family in the faith”Gal.6:7-10, GNT. 🙏🏾
“If you decide that climate or atmosphere is unhealthy, it will be so to you. Your decisions will master you, whichever direction they take”
By Mary Baker Eddy,
A clear conscience pours in a pure offering. A Child’s eternal innocence remains resident at the rate it is entertained in your thought. Psychologists can only see the problems and are taught to pursue them in the patient’s mind. Who said it was the patient’s mind? Now Love’s authority comes in, only conscious of good, overturning the record of all else.🙏🏾🎉
Once the devil can get us to hate anyone, we are permitting it to slip into our thinking.
Fortunately, truth’s light is still shining on the seeming world. The only needed adjustment is always within our conscious grasp.
Today, our task is to stay focused on the task at hand, and the Holy Spirit will take care of all of those things that misrepresent God’s child. Under one God, humanity has only the propensity (Inclination) for good.
Love’s healing authority touches us on the shores of life, and as the water recedes, we witness our newness.🙏🏾🎉
Our spirituality is moving Mountains while many Churches today are submitting to the flesh and social pressures. Are they worthy to carry that title any longer?
Our individual spiritual orientation is restoring this great foundation. Conscious right never changes. It seems to be transfigured, as we grow in our understanding. We are active witnesses to God’s unchanged reality.
Opposition by the socially pressured means progress is unfolding. Remember, our comfort is from the within, and God will take care of the manifestation.
Don’t expect some in high places to see. It requires a single mind to see this active Transfiguration.
For me, some days are better than others. I thank the Father for his eternal grace.🙏🏾🎉
Don’t be impressed or concerned by the world’s outward celebration of (restrictive) labels. Your closet time, feared by the unenlightened, will soon impress and regulate the world’s outcome in a liberating way. Remember, quiet the five illegitimate senses, then, see and hear with the Mind, and witness the salvation of a lost world through you and your creator. We are all children of God, and when we accept that fact, we’re united. Happiness becomes a natural outcome.🙏🏾🎉
Christians, in the purest sense of the word, are not transphobic. For those who believe in transfiguration, the Father provides a living light to their experience. Our choice is a world orientation, or spiritual orientation. The Holy Ghost will sort it all out in the end. The red barn awaits. Our salvation is within. 🙏🏾🎉
The Living Word:
“We wish you could see how all this is working out for your benefit, and how the more grace God gives, the more thanksgiving will redound to his glory. This is the reason why we never collapse. The outward man does indeed suffer wear and tear, but every day the inward man receives fresh strength. These little troubles (which are really so transitory) are winning for us a permanent, glorious and solid reward out of all proportion to our pain. For we are looking all the time not at the visible things but at the invisible. The visible things are transitory: it is the invisible things that are really permanent. This means that our knowledge of men can no longer be based on their outward lives (indeed, even though we knew Christ as a man we do not know him like that any longer). For if a man is in Christ he becomes a new person altogether—the past is finished and gone, everything has become fresh and new. All this is God’s doing, for he has reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ; and he has made us agents of the reconciliation. God was in Christ personally reconciling the world to himself—not counting their sins against them—and has commissioned us with the message of reconciliation. We are now Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were appealing direct to you through us. As his personal representatives we say, “Make your peace with God.” For God caused Christ, who himself knew nothing of sin, actually to be sin for our sakes, so that in Christ we might be made good with the goodness of God”
2 Corinthians 4:15-18,5:16-21, J.B.PHILLIPS.
To some, I may appear evil, until they discern my inner workings. Just the same, a shell job of me may appear good until they spiritually discern the emptiness, the unconscionable thinking. The former is closer to being liberated. The latter may find limited comfort behind titles, though, change is coming. 🙏🏾🎉
Good Samaritans are here Today, and not acting on appearances, but Love. In our Individual Spiritual Orientation, we see no reason to micromanage Love. All are deserving, even those that haven’t found their place in love. In them, we must love more. Love is a Wall-less reality, never restricted within or without.🙏🏾🎉
Who is thine enemy that thou shouldst love him? Is it a creature or a thing outside thine own creation?
Can you see an enemy, except you first formulate this enemy and then look upon the object of your own conception? What is it that harms you? Can height, or depth, or any other creature separate you from the Love that is omnipresent good, — that blesses infinitely one and all? …
The Hebrew law with its “Thou shalt not,” its demand and sentence, can only be fulfilled through the gospel’s benediction. Then, “Blessed are ye,” insomuch as the consciousness of good, grace, and peace, comes through affliction rightly understood, as sanctified by the purification it brings to the flesh, — to pride, self-ignorance, self-will, self-love, self-justification. Sweet, indeed, are these uses of His rod! …
“Love thine enemies” is identical with “Thou hast no enemies.” Wherein is this conclusion relative to those who have hated thee without a cause? Simply, in that those unfortunate individuals are virtually thy best friends. Primarily and ultimately, they are doing thee good far beyond the present sense which thou canst entertain of good. …
We have no enemies. Whatever envy, hatred, revenge — the most remorseless motives that govern mortal mind — whatever these try to do, shall “work together for good to them that love God.”
Because He has called His own, armed them, equipped them, and furnished them defenses impregnable. Their God will not let them be lost; and if they fall they shall rise again, stronger than before the stumble. The good cannot lose their God, their help in times of trouble. …
Even in belief you have but one (that, not in reality), and this one enemy is yourself — your erroneous belief that you have enemies; that evil is real; that aught but good exists in Science. Soon or late, your enemy will wake from his delusion to suffer for his evil intent; to find that, though thwarted, its punishment is tenfold.
Love is the fulfilling of the law: it is grace, mercy, and justice. I used to think it sufficiently just to abide by our State statutes; that if a man should aim a ball at my heart, and I by firing first could kill him and save my own life, that this was right. I thought, also, that if I taught indigent students gratuitously, afterwards assisting them pecuniarily, and did not cease teaching the wayward ones at close of the class term, but followed them with precept upon precept; that if my instructions had healed them and shown them the sure way of salvation, — I had done my whole duty to students.
Love metes not out human justice, but divine mercy. If one’s life were attacked, and one could save it only in accordance with common law, by taking another’s, would one sooner give up his own? We must love our enemies in all the manifestations wherein and whereby we love our friends; must even try not to expose their faults, but to do them good whenever opportunity occurs. …
I would enjoy taking by the hand all who love me not, and saying to them, “I love you, and would not knowingly harm you.” Because I thus feel, I say to others: Hate no one; for hatred is a plague-spot that spreads its virus and kills at last. If indulged, it masters us; brings suffering upon suffering to its possessor, throughout time and beyond the grave. If you have been badly wronged, forgive and forget: God will recompense this wrong, and punish, more severely than you could, him who has striven to injure you. Never return evil for evil; and, above all, do not fancy that you have been wronged when you have not been.
The present is ours; the future, big with events. Every man and woman should be to-day a law to himself, herself, — a law of loyalty to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. …
“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust”
Matthew 5:43-45 – KJV.
… Jesus said, “If ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.” Luke 6:32
