I HAVE AN ETERNITY AHEAD OF ME 

CHAPTER 18 

TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE:

PART 4 ACCEPTANCE (continued)

 

"Simple Gifts" written by Elder Joseph Brackett, Jr., of the Shaker community in Alfred, Maine 1848 

 

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free

'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,

And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,

To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed,

To turn, turn will be our delight,

Till by turning, turning we come 'round right.

 

YOU are a child of God! Always know and cherish what you are and who God created you to be.

Cherish your relationship with your Father. You cannot fail with God, for God never fails!

God did not create people who are losers and failures, or people who are not equal to one another. He only created people who are nothing without Him.

If we are to change the atmosphere of our broken society, we must change the minds and hearts of those in darkness who have become proud, arrogant, hateful, cruel, uncaring, violent, destructive, greedy, insensitive, and without empathy and compassion for those unlike themselves.

 

Everyone and everything has a beginning. Not to understand this or to continue having love and hope for all mankind would mean that our hearts too were blinded by darkness. We also, would be without love and compassion for our neighbor.

 

Darkness uses broken, hurt, ignorant, and enslaved people to inflict relentless pain upon mankind by filling their mouths with hateful and destructive words to label people as inferior, undesirable, hopeless, failures, and losers. Deception, lies, racism, violence, religious discrimination and persecution have all taken an open seat in public debate to legally claim a rightful place within society. 

We who STAND in the name of God must help to change the rhetoric and discourse damaging, dividing, and destroying lives, beginning by working from the inside of ourselves. Truth will cut down the immorality and brutality of darkness, for God is Truth and God Never Fails!

Nevertheless, as God's servants and vessels, we cannot stand idly by, watching those within society and our government try to harden hearts and create a society ruled by hatred, greed and violence. We must work harder knowing we have the power to succeed with God.

 

Your acceptance of yourself and of others is VITAL to the cause to remove mankind from the path of global warfare, which will result in the loss of millions of lives to Darkness and Death to appease the hatred and greed of those led by their pride and flesh, while blissfully in bondage. 

We cannot be afraid of professing our faith or using it as the basis to defend moral conduct, the commonality of mankind, or to rebuke the lies and harsh tenor heard within the brash comments of our leadership, mocking the morality, justice and sound judgement that give our institutions and offices of authority, honor, respect, trust and stability.

The enemy has concocted a toxic potion to poison the minds of the public, paralyze progress, and prevent our governments from carrying out their commitment to be honest and just to all those they are sworn to and exists to serve and protect. Deception and lies are sweeping from nation to nation as a power play continues between those serving darkness.

Our faith in God is what will hold us up. Our willingness to stand together and serve Him is a formidable wall against the enemy, for God is our Fortress--a Bulwark never failing.

Those who lie come against God Almighty as His enemy. Those who reject truth, holiness and righteousness, reject God, for God is Truth, Holiness, Righteousness and Love.

My friends,  it is not that we demonize our enslaved brothers by claiming they are the enemy. However, these are defining times. And, in times like these, the line between Truth and lies, Darkness and Light, Good and Evil is clearly  visible and one must stand up to show which side they serve. We must identify darkness and sin, calling it what it is to defeat and expel it.

Those who have chosen to do the bidding of the enemy, the Prince of Lies, join him as God's enemy, as spoken by God, the Creator of man. They have chosen Darkness over Light. The nature of that darkness is evil. Therefore, they have allied with demons and evil principalities to imitate them instead of imitating their Creator and Father in Heaven.

No, it is not our desire to slander and call names. The calling of names is ineffective, and falls on deaf ears, for they have come to relish the opportunity to deceive and lie to satisfy the hungry darkness within them and to falsely claim power and victory. We, as the children of God have been given the revelation of TRUTH to which belongs the definition of true power and the Divine authority in which to bring down giants! Whereby, in the name of God, we do as David did, standing before the Philistine, Goliath. We call them and their master out with TRUTH to acknowledge the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!

 

Their treacherous words and conduct speak for themselves, revealing that they are not of God. So, let us in turn, wield the Sword of God, by boldly speaking the Word of God, cutting deep within the heart of Darkness to proclaim the power and might of the Holy One, the one and only True God of love, truth, goodness, mercy, glory and LIGHT!  

 

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 King James Version (KJV)

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
