Praying for Discernment in the Love of God and Light of Truth in Christ
"If others have the right to marry why can't we? Do we not deserve to live a happy life being together?"
Not far away, an unmarried girl in his late teens cries out to her close friend, "Oh no, the pregnancy test, it's 'positive,' what will I do? I cannot imagine myself living in shame for what I have done, and I can't afford caring for my own baby, much less seeing myself tied with this burden. No I can't. Please, please, help me, tell me I can't have this baby, tell me, what do I do now?"
We cannot escape from the realities of these situations. Everyday, these have become more and more evident in a permissive society such as ours not only in America, unfortunately, these have become increasingly alarming too in different parts of the globe?
Sadly, gay marriages and abortion have been allowed to flourish, and practiced, so with wrong medication that may cause more harm than cure, unmindful of the negative effects these may carry in future relationships and in generations to come, and in the gradually deteriorating norms of morals in a highly technologically advanced society where short term material, capital and economic gains rule over what greater benefits a society may earn to achieve if focused on long term directions for a better quality of life in a morally upright society, may our eyes be opened, and our hearts and souls open up to God's truth, that evil may not cling to men, cleansed by the blood of Christ, may we remain healed in Christ, as we may pray for one another, to help negate the influence of generational sins, as we may rebuke evil in greed, lust and malice from our hearts.
"No worry, everything is in God's 'divine plan.' Caring to enlighten to what is true in one's spirit, where we, in our spirit, God has allowed those living in His spirit to testify to what is true in Christ Jesus, so does the holy ones who have lived and died in Christ, now living forever, united as one with the Holy Spirit (KJOH), He remains true as our Advocate, as He searches hearts and souls of men."
But in all these, where then is "hope and salvation"?
"True everlasting hope is in Christ Jesus, our true Lord and Master in this life (KJOH)."
While we may accept our brothers and sisters who have chosen that path to become gay and lesbians, or those still influenced by Mammon in greed, may we continue to pray for them as we may pray for ourselves too, that we all may be guided by the Holy Spirit, to be united as one in our faith, as we may see our renewal in Christ, reminding each other, that in each of us, in our body and spirit, is the Temple of the Holy Spirit, as in 1 Corinthians 6:19, and that wherever and whenever we may hear God's words, we may take heed and take time to listen, be verily freed and healed from all our iniquities.
If need be, let us respond to His calling, in our own humble way, to help lead the church and God's people towards spreading the truth in the gospel and equipping ourselves more with what truth we need to learn and share with others who hunger for healing in His words.
"In the lighted path, where 'true faith' is, in the power of the Holy Eucharist, we may experience cleansing of our hearts and souls, to be one body with Christ, who remains One Spirit with The Father and the Holy Spirit (KJOH)."
We may have a forgiving God in Christ Jesus, however, experiencing the blessings of being given second, third, fourth or so chances may not be wise anymore for us to continue being a pawn or a willing instrument of evil as it may be unhealthy, with its rippling effect complicating a worsening situation and affecting the lives of many, unfortunately, may even include our loved ones and descendants as seen in generational sins.
In everything that we do in this life, is it not true that 'we reap what we sow, and we sow what we reap," as in the message of Galatians 6:7-9?:
"7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."

Why do we have many people influenced towards gay marriages and abortions?
Is it not because we allow these to happen instead of enlightening them to what is true in our being, that we are one with God, that in Christ's death and resurrection, there is forgiveness of our sins, and we need to be cleansed that we may be sanctified in Christ?
And in our hasty decisions, along with our ego and our pride, in our uncaring attitude and in the hardness of our hearts and souls, have we not failed to see the astray be guided back to 'divine truth?
If money is a problem, is not God providing us with our 'FREE' gifts of talents God has bestowed upon us to hone, never to hide for in 'sloth' we sin, from the time we have been given another 'FREE' gift, that 'breath of life' allowing us to see how beautiful His creations are, for, if not our soul, is it not best that our spirit may savor true peace and joy in our hearts in the love of others?
"God has given us 'FREE' gifts and virtues of faith, hope and charity, that we may learn to give back in our love of Him and of others, as we may see our victory over evil as we persevere over all persecutions, in 'true faith,' the joy of God's blessings and love remains in our heart, where Jesus, has always been our hope. In His daily blessings, you may know He is there for you, keeping you alive, as a living instrument of His love and miracles of faith, as we care to take time to spreed the gospel in truth (KJOH)."
"If we do not see and feel God's Kingdom in our hearts, this being another 'FREE' gift from The Lord, is it not because we allow evil to rule us, is it not our ego blinding us of this truth as we may refuse to understand what is meant by God's 'divine plan?' As we may live in His grace, in His words, in His protection, where in 'divine logic,' in God's 'divine wisdom,' God's truth is defined, where everlasting peace and joy comes in the love of our hearts, is it not the binding cross in us in 'laminin,' connecting us to Jesus, where in Him, with the Spirit of God, we may see and feel God's love for us in The Father's glory, as we glorify His only begotten Son (KJOH)?"
"If God has allowed us to live so short or the longest time, will we not be equally grateful? He being our Creator, He knows what is best for us, in the passage of 'time and space,' as we may live in His grace and in His Spirit, He molds us to become worthy, as true 'children of God' (KJOH)."
"Living in God's Kingdom comes true joy, true peace and happiness like no other (KJOH)."
"If the 'word of God' is FREE, it remains priceless, forever (KJOH)."
Living with so much fear and uncertainty in our hearts, as we may worry so much with negativity and anxiety in our hearts, evil may see us weak in our spirit, we may become an easy prey to his lies and deception, for "as we live in fear, there is no perfect love in us."
"The perfection of our love is in continuous cleansing, by the body and blood of Christ, we may be cleansed forever as we seek God's truth and His righteousness in our being (KJOH)."
"As we may read what is true in the holy book of God's love for us, the book of 'Life and Love' from The Lord, the 'Holy Bible,' comes the holy scripture, our spirit of truth may reveal to us how evil in Satan may corrupt us in the flesh, until we may fall, trapped to his rule and bondage, enslaving us, veering our morals to what is wrong, veering us to what is untrue in the lies of the flesh, false knowledge may come, as it is in false wisdom in man, drawn by evil, things passing may come to lure us as we live in the flesh, the false path to peace and happiness comes 'short term,' so does a scam, truth in one's spirit may reveal what 'lies in evil' may come out hiding from the dark, where truth in the light uncovers evil, wherever it may hide, as we may care to love one another, the Holy Spirit searches the hearts of men, ready to condemn what is evil, to save the ungodly (KJOH)."
As in Roman 5:6 (source: biblehub.com,NASB), "For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die.…"
"In due time, our spirit of truth may reveal in our hearts, what is morally true and right, for as long as we may believe in the power of 'God's words,' all things in this life comes justified, a morale boost may come where truth in our spirit may keep Christ's living waters running through our veins, adrenaline running high, in 'true faith' we may become one Spirit with Christ, ready to go and save the astray, so are the lost be directed to the lighted path, as we spread the gospel of truth (KJOH)."
"Healing of the heart and soul, may lead to a healthy body and mind, as against hatred, pride, selfishness and envy, where evil is, will not evil in men, therefore, as our spirit may be crushed, will not all these lead to destruction and violence, and may cause death and illnesses to many? If the Blessed Mother, who is the main vessel of the Holy Spirit, where in her comes divine wisdom, cares to tell us in her many apparitions, "go back to my Son, Jesus, be redeemed and be saved in His truth," in 'divine logic,' we may see our souls being saved, as one body in Christ, our souls and spirit come united as one in truth, living in the Spirit of Christ (KJOH)."
Have we allowed the false master in Mammon to rule?
When will we be sane enough to let God rule in a deteriorating society?
In all things that we may do and will upon ourselves, is it not God who repay?
Why do many of us believe more in destroying the morals of society, when, in due time, will not all misdeeds of the flesh lead to a common fall, to self-destruction?
"When then do we deny Jesus, who is the truth in this life, for in His words come healing in body, mind and soul, where remaining in His light, we may forever be freed from the bondage of sin and evil (KJOH)?"
"In the acceptance of God's will upon us, we may see God's hands moving in the light of truth, while Jesus continue to judge us, in the miracles of faith we may know, so is the condemnation of evil by the Holy Spirit as the God of prophetic spirits searches the hearts of men, in due time, humbled by the Almighty Spirit of God, we may see God's power, Christ Jesus revealing to us God's truth in this life and the life ahead, that all these happen in the sight of God, all in God's 'divine plan' (KJOH)."
As in John 3:20-21, in God's words may we come enlightened:
“Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”
[Read and reflect on the truth in God's words on: "Evil Virus Spread by Our Ego"]
Remember, this is to enlighten all, Christ died for us all, for He loves us all, that we may be saved from what evil may bring forth to you in a silver platter or in shallow and meaningless joy, but the promise of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus.
Spreading His truth in His words may we come blessed eternally, in 'true faith,' may we avoid the sins to 'idolatry.'
Jesus said to a mother of His apostles, to humbly drink His bitter cup that they may best understand the truth in living in His words, as in Matthew 20:21-23 (source: biblehub.com,NASB):
“And He said to her, "What do you wish?" She said to Him, "Command that in Your kingdom these two sons of mine may sit one on Your right and one on Your left." But Jesus answered, "You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?" They said to Him, "We are able." He said to them, "My cup you shall drink; but to sit on My right and on My left, this is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by My Father."…”
"Self sacrifice in 'true faith,' comes the joy in living in God's Kingdom (KJOH)."
Saint Paul encourages us to 'die in Christ,' to proclaim what is true in this life as true witnesses in the miracles of faith while we may live in His righteousness, that we too many humble ourselves to him and die from our lust, our pride and malice in our hearts, in the conquest of evil we may redeem ourselves from sin, in the light of Christ, our healing is magnified as we live in His Spirit.
May the Holy Spirit guide us that more may see humility in following godly ways.
In us in the Temple of the Holy Spirit where no one should be guilty of 'blasphemy' or sacrilege.
Blasphemy to the Holy Spirit is not forgivable, it is a deadly sin.
"May we remember, in the 8th commandment of the 10 Commandments, "thou shall not bear false witness against by neighbor," otherwise, the sin of 'omission,' we may unknowingly commit, many of us may be guilty of more sins, for as we pray invoking the presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit, onto perfect timing in our spirit as it is His will upon us, where the more we minister to others of what is true in the 'word,' the more 'free' and 'cleansed' we may become, in Christ's saving ways, comes His redeeming and freeing ways in us (KJOH)."
All sinners are left to renew in Christ's ways and avoid the sin, and be the more encouraged to spread the good news as they may be healed from things evil causing them to fail in 'true faith.'
More evil spirits may haunt us, as one who may allow one evil spirit into his soul, many may follow to corrupt him/her, and evil spirits never give up, more may come to deceive us, unless we may be cleansed in true confession and cleansed through the power of the Holy Eucharist, where the 'breaking of the bread' is, we renew in Christ, in one body we come united in the Spirit in Christ. .
In Matthew 12:31-32 (source: biblehub.com,KJV), and Jesus himself say this, “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”
The Holy Spirit comes with me, in my spirit, to help enlighten the astray, for Jesus in me loves loves you as my true brothers and sisters, in Christ we may become one, living in His grace, we may live together in eternity.
While others may tolerate what is wrong, in the lies of the flesh, we sin against our brothers and sisters, God wants us to be true to Him and true to ourselves, that no evil in darkness may rule us.
"In the gospel of Christ, may we see true freedom from our souls, and our spirit of truth tells us what is eternally true, not with human wisdom, rather, with what is true in 'divine logic,' encompassing the truth in 'divine wisdom,' where Jesus in the 'word of God.'"
Truly, Christ is ever forgiving, but the more one may sin in his pride, in idolatry, malice and selfishness and love of 'self' more than the love of God , it become evil that he now profess as his master, not The Lord of the light in Christ, for evil will add more troubles in your life if one may not renew himself in the gospel of Christ, and we are not helping people do thing the way God wants us to spread the gospel if we admonish what is sinful instead of what binds us in the love of God in Christ and of the love of others as God loves us in eternal truth, otherwise, whatever is eternal should be pure and chase from what is true, for corruptions in evil cannot be eternal for evil is in where lies and deception is.
"Things happen because they have to happen, all in God's 'divine plan.' No need to worry, rather, pray God will lead us through all problems and difficulties as we share in our joy in all suffering, for in Jesus, He remains our true hope, our Lord, our Savior and Redeemer as we may do what is best to help save and be redeemed in God's glory (KJOH)."
I pray for each and everyone to be healed in God's truth that more may be saved.
To Love with God in Christ - a Wisdom Filled Decision onto Eternity
If one decides to 'tie the knot' as others may say, is this not to honor what is true in God as it is in a sworn statement that a couple may want to live together for the rest of their lives? And If it is not meant to last, is this being true to oneself, or is this like living in a farce or some sort of a game, and better not to have taken place than it should have, with so much pain, guilt, oppression and suffering that may come along with it?
More so if it is a church wedding, where it becomes a sacrament. That holy and sacred oath one makes is made in the presence of God. If you are unsure to get married in church, may you be guided as you may pray for discernment, in 'divine wisdom' the more one may be guided to make Christ as center in your life long decision, and invoke the Holy Spirit to guide and enlighten you if your chosen partner is the one chosen by God for you.
Pray hard in the openness of your heart and spirit, I know, and if you truly believe, God listens and pray for signs that may lead you to the right decision.
"To love in paper or a written certificate of marriage may not be as binding as when love between husband and wife becomes a decision in God and with God as it is meant to be eternal."
Remember, 'love is a decision,' as to "'love God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind;' and 'Love your neighbor as yourself,'" as in Luke 10:27, true love comes an eternal decision.
If you have made that decision, especially made in an oath, more so a sacred oath in church, with Christ as center, by the grace of God may you honor it and try your very best to fulfill it, or you know what happens when you say you love God or you love your neighbor and later you realize you did not really mean it.
Will this not be a dishonor to yourself, when you fail to honor your oath? If it was a church wedding, will this not be sacrilege?
Lies in the flesh deserves so many lies and misdeeds that may follow, where Satan is the prince of darkness, where lies and deception prevail in his spirit.
As in John 8:44 (source: biblehub.com,NIV), Jesus Himself said to the Pharisees, "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
"I hate you, I don't love you anymore. I am divorcing you. And I am doing this as soon as possible," so goes the threat.
Sounds familiar? From whom does it usually come from? Is it not from one's pride and insecurity? Are these not all coming from the influence of the evil one whom we allow to to enter into the sacredness of our body, heart and soul?
Many times, it is when our feelings and emotions overwhelm us that we may snap and become unreasonable, without realizing that in all these, it is evil in our pride that rules over our hardened hearts and souls.
The more we remain blind in our pride, in our selfishness, in our hatred and non-forgiveness, with the absence of God in Christ in our life, the more we may see our relationship with others fail, right?
Life is passing, every second, evil comes, and every second as we may be filled with the love of God in the Holy Spirit, the more we may see the fullness of God's love in us. Where there is 'love and forgiveness,' evil cannot cannot bind us.
Let us always be wary of the evil one lurking and taking advantage of these situations where our pride and selfishness comes vulnerable over things of this world that lead our minds and parts of our body to malice and hatred, and where envy may lead to illnesses for 'envy rots the bones,' as in Proverbs 14:30:
And later, to a feeling of guilt and pain.
Saint Paul's first letter to his young protege, Timothy, in 1 Timothy 2:8-15 (source: usccb.org,bible), exhorts men to pray with lifted hands to the Lord and speak in truth and love while women should be more modest in their dress and to listen to their husband in many ways delightful to the Lord that strengthens the spirit and in reverence to God for the woman as in Eve is more prone to transgress:
"8 It is my wish, then, that in every place the men should pray, lifting up holy hands, without anger or argument.
9 Similarly, [too,] women should adorn themselves with proper conduct, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hairstyles and gold ornaments, or pearls, or expensive clothes,
10 but rather, as befits women who profess reverence for God, with good deeds.
11 A woman must receive instruction silently and under complete control.
12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man. She must be quiet.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
14 Further, Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and transgressed.
15 But she will be saved through motherhood, provided women persevere in faith and love and holiness, with self-control."
As many wives may always feel pride in saying, "A happy wife is a happy life."
Well indeed, anything that leads the wife "to perseverance of faith, love, holiness with self-control," as in verse 15 above, the happier she may become, in her willingness to carry her own cross, Jesus is not far behind, in the power of the Holy Spirit, giving hope and blessings to all who trust and remain a believer in Christ and in godly ways, and never fearing to help guide the astray back to the light.
"Anyone who may boast of evil ways, however he/she may show his/her godly ways, concealed in a mask, pious as one may go, deep down in his/her inner being comes a startling disclosure, one's defiant, arrogant, eccentric and stony heart the Spirit may reveal, no one's hypocrisy may remain hidden in the eyes of The Lord, where nothing is justified in selfish, childish and mischievous ways to retaliation, malice and manipulation for God knows what is in each person's heart and desires, where vanity and ill intent remains unpunished, in everything evil, in misdeeds of the flesh, God repays (KJOH)."
"O Lord God, may you grant us the wisdom of your everlasting words of truth and love."
Please do not get me wrong, I am not here to judge or ridicule anyone, but to show my concern in God's love to help enlighten and guide that we may see the wisdom in God's words and the wisdom in learning to put Christ first in our lives and decisions while we may surrender our pride and our selfish desires at the foot of His cross in fervent prayer.
"Jesus is the true judge of all, in His words come justice and truth that prevails forever (KJOH)."
As in James 4:11-12 (source: biblehub.com,NASB):
"…Do not speak against one another, brethren. He who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge of it. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?"
As always, we should take responsibility for all our actions, and encourage you to pray more and listen to the prodding of the Holy Spirit, to keep the spirit healthy with The Lord, otherwise, it is our spirit that suffers, so with those around us.
Sometimes we may make wrong decisions, yes, but in the fullness of our love for God and of others, and in God's great love and mercy on us, there is no greater substitute to accepting God's will in us, and living in such joy and peace in our hearts as we learn to live in the wisdom of totally surrendering our pride and ego, our selfishness and malice in our hearts to God who created us all, and through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, by His death and resurrection, we were all purchased from sin, that we may have everlasting life in us as we 'abide' and 'remain in Him,' as in His promise, He will continue to 'abide' and 'remain' in us.
In John 15:4-9 (source: usccb.org,bible),Jesus said, "Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me.
"I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing.
"Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned.
"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.
"By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.
"As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love."
If you have learned to accept that money or material things or possessions are not everything as they can never guarantee true peace and joy in one's life, rather, it is in surrendering all these and consider these 'meaningless,' as it is in this life, 'life is meaningless without God,' and keeping our covenant with God to forever love Him, our spouse, our children, our relatives and our neighbors, will we not see ourselves forever in His love as we live by His grace to help make our life complete?
You may want to refer to the book Ecclesiastes, and see the verse below how meaningful it can work in our lives (Ecc 7:15-16, sourced from biblegateway.com, NKJV), from the Old Testament and reflect on what is true in God's divine words.
As in Eccleastes 7:15 (source: biblehub.com,NIV), "In this meaningless life of mine I have seen both of these: the righteous perishing in their righteousness, and the wicked living long in their wickedness."
If you may have read just this verse, you may be waylaid from the truth. It is best to read the rest of the chapter and the other related chapters in this book and others in the holy scripture, that truth in your spirit you may see God's wisdom in you.
Reading further may give you greater wisdom, as in Ecclesiastes 7:16-25 (source: usccb.com,bible, in the spirit of truth, God's words in the Holy Bible remains with a powerful message, whatever the version, in the true gospel of God's love and life, God's Spirit will reveal the truth, sans malice in one's heart):
"“Be not just to excess, and be not overwise. Why work your own ruin? 7 Be not wicked to excess, and be not foolish. Why should you die before your time? 8 It is good to hold to this rule, and not to let that one go; but the one who fears God will succeed with both.
19 Wisdom is a better defense for the wise than ten princes in the city, 20 yet there is no one on earth so just as to do good and never sin. 21 Do not give your heart to every word that is spoken; you may hear your servant cursing you, 22 for your heart knows that you have many times cursed others.
23 All these things I probed in wisdom. I said, “I will acquire wisdom”; but it was far beyond me. 24 What exists is far-reaching; it is deep, very deep: Who can find it out? 25 I turned my heart toward knowledge; I sought and pursued wisdom and its design, and I recognized that wickedness is foolishness and folly is madness."
The greater truth in God's wisdom prevails over those who may refuse to understand with pride in their hearts and in their mind, where human nature may prevail, as in Proverbs 10:30:
"The righteous will never be uprooted, but the wicked will not remain in the land."
"With God, many things can be possible, while we may live in His glory, it is His grace which lifts us up over and above the wicked (KJOH)."
And in Genesis 2:18-25, we can see how God took a rib from the sleeping Adam and formed a woman in Eve, to keep him happy, until Adam himself realized the purpose of this and said, 23 "This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called Woman, for out of Man this one was taken." 24 Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed."
Don't you think the primary reason why we may see 'divinely inspired' writings of Saint Paul, Saint John and Saint Peter, and the rest of the 'scribes elect' from God, commonly pointing out to the importance of marriage between a man and a woman, as in Corinthians 7:1-15, in Ephesians 5:22-23, and in Peter 1:2&3, is this not because God wants us to see among married couples the essence of 'truth,' that since the beginning of creation, man and woman have been designed by God to be joined back together, to live as one flesh, with the husband to appropriately lead as the true faithful father and servant leader of his own family and household, leading his children, towards what is pleasing, true and noble in the eyes of God, with his wife to be loved "as God loves his church?"
In God's will and purpose, not everyone will marry, for many will remain unmarried, where all things, in God's 'divine plan,' everyone has his purpose in life.
Is it when one opens up his heart to God, that one may know God.
In marriage, in the husband lies the greater responsibility to lead his family towards God as husband and wife may find the richness of sharing their love together in true love and passion for each other, as they live as one flesh with The Lord, never relenting to support each other, bearing with one another's faults and weaknesses and be empowered by unconditional love while seeking God's righteousness in the life shared with the family, as one true basic community of God's love and life, where unity in Christ prevails.
In doing this, they both may see the beauty there is in sharing their unselfish love for one another as they are blessed to be one in flesh, that their faithfulness for each other and in each other may the more be enhanced, while learning to live in care, compassion, kindness, understanding, in honesty and in truth, ever trusting in faith and hope in Christ, and most of all, that in God's loving mercy and grace, we may see the freeing power of love and forgiveness as God has always been forgiving to each and everyone of us, and so must we live in His blessings.
And the woman being the wife, may find it appropriate to subject herself to her man, being the husband, as God's anointed leader of the family and the household, greatly blessed in faithfulness to God and to the 'word,' lest the husband becomes immature, and refuses to grow in spirit with The Lord.
Still, in one who may live with or without children, is it the 'word' in Christ that gives greater hope and enlightenment in this life.
Any wife may quickly retort to 'equality in treatment' that the husband may not abuse this truth, but in a totally humbling fashion, our obedience to God's words, for both husband and wife, understanding God's truth in our spirit makes us 'one' connecting to God's greater wisdom in the 'Holy Spirit' - who remains our 'Divine Advocate.'
"If we were created man or woman, it is God's will upon us all, that we may remain humble and obedient to the 'word,' lest we remain lost in natural ways, culture and human tradition, all these may subject us to be ruled in the flesh (KJOH)."
What about those created with deformities?
"Accepting all these as God's will, in 'true faith,' they are there to test our faith, to test our love, to test our humility to our Creator, where in 'true love,' as we are come ready with gifts of 'knowledge, wisdom and true faith' from the Holy Spirit, whence, we may enlighten in what is true in gospel of Christ, our life made more meaningful as we may create 'treasures of love,' where God's Kingdom may remain in our hearts, in His lighted path, we live and believe in Christ's fullness in our being, living in the 'word of God' (KJOH)."
Questioning God's will, may we not rebel like Satan and his minions, cast out from the heavens, on earth they come exiled, to sow fear, death and destruction.
"We must not be deceived by the mortal part of our mind, rather, by the strength of our spirit 'over our mind,' for the brain comes the sinful flesh, corrupted by things passing - as in money and other things material - our mind and body dies with the flesh, it becomes 'meaningless' over time, with all the memories stored in it, like history, life in the flesh perishes with the sun's rays, in wisdom, history is nothing, when we remain blind in seeing signs from God, the truth in our spirit tells no lies, as it testifies in Christ, where the realms of truth and justice lives forever in His light, and truth in the 'word,' remains God's wisdom in the conquest of evil and darkness in the world (KJOH)."
Listening to God's truth, in His words, where malice may not deceive us in the flesh, in our hearts and souls, filtered by our spirit of truth, will we not see in us a smarter creation of God, outwitting the cunning Satan or devil who wants us to fall to sin, where in the face of all adversities, pressures and negativity in life, we have learned to conquer evil which once has lead us to confusion and darkness?
See how this truth has worked out well in couples, and among individuals, where in 'true faith,' may we see us perfected in Christ, one who is willing to sacrifice to drink His bitter cup, one who wants to live in the 'spirit,' where Christ's truth belongs, never in the whims of our minds, as we may chase the 'wind.'
Can we really chase the wind (as in the book of Ecclesiastes)?
"The wind is 'life,' from the breath of life, comes the wind, from the Holy Spirit, where truth belongs in one's life (KJOH)."
"The Holy Spirit searches the hearts of mankind, that no one may hide."
"It is in believing in the Spirit of truth, where Christ remains in our love of others, that we may see Christ's fullness in us, made complete in our being Christ lives forever in our spirit (KJOH)."
It is so beautiful to see how the Holy Spirit makes things for us in any relationship, our spirit makes us better understand the workings of God in us, living the truth in unconditional love which is the same way that God shows to us, in a love that counts blessings, always moving forward while learning and growing from each others' faults, bearing with one another while attuned to God's words of truth and love.
If ever we may be forced to do some accounting in our lives, let the numbers show more the positive gains and blessings than losses that the family or individual may receive in everyday life, for in truth, with the Holy Spirit in us helping filter our thoughts with negativity and unnecessary pressures that may fill the pockets of our minds in our ego, we may see see the greater picture of peace in His loving presence in our lives, in the many miracles of our faith because we choose to count more our blessings that finding faults in others, where a thousand and more times we may realize how God has always been there in all adversities, sorrow, pain and defeat, lifting us up and giving us hope every time we may take extra effort to do our best to please Him by remaining faithful and loving to Him, in the strength of our spirit, and remaining faithful and loving to our family and neighbors as well.
I have seen this formula of love and forgiveness in Christ working wonders in many families who have humbled themselves to God's truth and to God's love.
Will it not work for us too and see at best our dreams with God and His kingdom in us come true as we may learn to love and forgive, with Him as center in our everyday chores and endeavor, accepting His greater will and power over and above our will?
Try this freeing, filling and healing exercise in a month or two and see how the strength of our spirit in Christ may lead us through a loving and forgiving relationship with no conditions but all the best we may offer and do in the love and care of our family and of others too, guided by God's words, in blind obedience and perseverance of our faith, ever trusting in our Lord, true God and true Savior, who remains the way to everlasting life, as our true Master in this life, in Christ Jesus, to live in the glory of The Father, in the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, forever.
May honesty and truth come from your heart, as you may fill the comment boxes in this hub, whatever realization you may share in God's truth and in God's love for you and for us all, that all may be set free from all your fears, for in Christ, may we live in God's Spirit, from whom all good things come.
"As one family in Christ, may we see the greater truth of our being connected to each other in body and spirit with the power of the crucified Christ binding us together united as one church in His light, ever ready to conquer darkness in every breath we take, in every step we make, in every move we create, we know Christ is with us all the way for as long as we believe."
Knowing and accepting that we can never perfect as we live in the flesh, yet, in our faith, we may strive to be as holy and perfect as God is, as our Lord wants us to grow our spirit with Him in true faith, just like filling a formerly broken cistern that may not hold water, but with Christ, believing that in Him makes possible great wonders and miracles in our life, seeing that cistern be made whole again is never impossible, that a spring of 'living water' may again flow continuously forever, filling our life with God's truth in God's love, mercy and grace.
As in Jeremiah 2:13(source: biblehub,KJV), God challenges us to come back to Him, to come guided in His flock in Christ Jesus being our true Shepherd, that we all may live in His lighted path where no evil may rule to overcome us with His words of truth running through our veins to empower us in the strength of our spirit:
"For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water."
And to be one in flesh, blessed by God in the Holy Spirit, a marriage in church can be so blessed as it is made in bondage with God, one in spirit and in Christ, making this sacred bond eternal, and meant to be 'forever' as we may yearn to live with Christ and in Christ throughout eternity.
"The essence of one's relationship as husband and wife may not be the focus once mortal death comes, so is the love of an individual to others as he may love in truth, rather, the essence of our relationship to Christ makes us forever one and whole in Him, where like angels we may live in this life, like angels we may serve Him forever (KJOH)."

How would this hold true in same sex marriage? If one's desire is to have a lasting marriage, greater than one's selfish desire for the satisfaction of the flesh and one's pride or ego, and one that is meant to be forever in Christ Jesus as in him we are made whole in both body and spirit, will the promise of living together bring good fruit to a same sex marriage in this life especially so when it is not that of God?
And with regards to abortion, if God has given us life, and created us all in his image and likeness, he calls on us to honor and respect life, as we are called to honor and respect him as our Creator, and to stay true to him in Christ, 'through him all things were made,' as in John 1:3.
At the onset of life in conception, that is when the male sperm cell successfully fertilizes the woman's egg cell, creation has commenced in the flesh, and life is formed, that in the hands of God, not in the hands of man, this life is designed to live a life on earth as he or she has reached completion in whole form, as a full grown baby in 9 months, inside the mother's womb.
Anyone who may stop this through abortion or any other means is depriving life from this newly created being, who, in him is another Temple of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer for Discernment
Some of you may not agree with me in that you may find it hard to believe in your spirit because you do not know if you ever have a spirit, right?

But is it not very comforting to realize that God in Jesus is always there for sinners, in His everlasting love and mercy, for is it not true that He truly has come 'for the sinners to repentance' and not for the righteous, as in Luke 5:32, for 'all have sinned and (have fallen short) of the glory of God,' as in Romans 3:23?
May I now invite you to move forward and continue reading this post until you finish it, once again, care to open up with your views, that we all may all grow together in spirit and be enlightened of the truth in God's words, in Christ Jesus, herein, inviting you to a prayer for discernment:
"Lord God, let your Holy Spirit come upon me that I may become an instrument of your love and help me understand the truth and your will upon me, as it is your will, and not my will, be done; And that I may always be guided by your discerning light through the power of your words as I ask for this very 'gift of discernment,' Lord God, through your Holy Spirit, that deep in my mind, my heart and my soul, I may know the true purpose of my being in this life and that I may help proclaim your glory in every good deed that I make, in every word that I say, and in every step that I take, it is you Lord God, guiding me by your hand, filling me with your love and grace, and forgiving me of my sins as you may deliver me strong against all evil in this world, all these I pray by your Holy Name, in Jesus Christ our Lord, One with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of The Almighty Father, Amen."
And this prayer may be followed through with another powerful prayer as so inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi (as sourced from Wikipedia) and featured on our music song video above from YouTube:
"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand;to be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
All these I pray, in Jesus' name, Amen.
That in everything that is pleasing to the Lord, God may be glorified.
