Why I Believe, What I Believe

Personal Experiences.

Have you ever asked yourself why you believe what you believe? (If you believe in anything at all?)

Why do I feel as if the metaphysical holds secrets (and answers!) important for the human being to seek?

Due to a few incredible and unexplainable events in my life, I wanted to make a list highlighting why I believe that this physical world should be working WITH the spiritual on our path to “enlightenment”, “bliss”, “peace”, etc. When we stray away from our naturally inclined spiritual side, we move further and further away from the truth of who really are.

I propose, that to search for the spiritual (as long as one does it carefully and prayerfully) will lead us closer to the answer that we seek (even if we don’t think we’re seeking anything) and fill the void that seems to be pervading a lot of society.

People regularly turn to alcohol, drugs, porn, video games, drama, social media, etc., etc., etc., perhaps because it gives them a momentary reprieve from their everyday life. It’s a form of imagined comfort/solace, because afterwards some of these vices gives people a sense of guilt/shame… and then they turn back to the very thing that caused these negative emotions to begin with, to drown it back out – and the tragic cycle continues.

If you’re one of those that turn to physical gratification – food, drugs, companionship, alcohol, etc. – please keep in mind that this is part of the system to try and keep us trapped in our endlessly seeking for that fill in the hole of ourselves. We feel empty, hollow, and these substances and hobbies may temporarily fill it, but it doesn’t last, and then we’re back to feeling incomplete and lost again.

People may scoff at this idea, but this power structure has been implemented for several millennia. When people start to realize that the world is composed of “energy”, “vibration”, “consciousness”, we may be on the right path to turning this world around and focusing on what really matters.

Which brings me to the experiences I’ve had that have led me to this conclusion.

I’ve written before about some of them, but I wanted to put most of the significant events all in one post to show the timeline and development of the spiritual thought process that I, personally have gone through, and believe anyone and everyone can attain. All it requires is a seeking mind.

If some still remain hard-hearted, it may have been due to their own stubbornness – and God knows what’s inside our hearts.

Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart.
1 Corinthians 4:5
The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Corinthians 4:4

While some people may seem closed-off and highly skeptical (I was one of them), God ultimately knows who will come around and He will lead the way – as long as you are earnest and sincere in your heart. Those that will continuously refuse to seek the truth (or perhaps they KNOW the truth and still turn their back to it), and remain in their sinful lifestyle, will face the repercussions when their time comes. This isn’t meant to fear-monger, but just a simple statement of one’s own decision to reject the Life they could have had. And we have to be aware, as the verse above states, some people may never come around and believe in the Truth – so some may be lost to their own fates.

Whether that is true or not, my efforts are to keep trying to bring people around and let them know that there’s so much to look to other than the physical aspect of things.

Thankfully, although I was a closed-off skeptic and scoffed at the Bible at one stage in my life, my heart was in the right place, and I believe because of that, I had help to lead me to keep searching.

Here is an ascending list (not exhaustive, as there were several others that have led me here) that gave me a huge wake-up call and made me realize that we’re not alone – and that there’s so much more to life than what we’ve been led to believe.

First: The Answer to Everything

One of the most major events in my life gave me a kickstart into believing that the physical Earth isn’t all there is in the world. I was a kid during this time. This was during the beginning of me experimenting with out of body experiences / astral projection – so I am unsure if the obe’s came first, or if this particular event happened first. But I remember a moment when I was asking a particular question in my head, a really innocuous one at that, and before I knew it, I had a HUGE flash of insight. EVERYTHING came to me all at once. The answers to EVERYTHING.

I can’t even explain how incredible this event was. This flash of insight only lasted a split-second, and then it was gone – but during it I literally had the answer to anything and everything. It was fascinating. Unfortunately, I couldn’t retain any of the information since it was so quick, but it left an ever-lasting impression on me. And that was the first major event for me that led me to keep searching for the Truth.

I wish I could remember if this incident came before or after my attempts at obe’s, but alas, I cannot. I think it would help paint a clearer picture of how my mind became open to the possibilities of the spiritual side. And I also wonder if I may have had a very quick glimpse into the Akashic records, but cannot say for certain what it was.

(You can read more about this experience here, which details this and some of the other accounts on this list in more detail.)

Second: A Polite Ghost?

This happened at a friend’s house; I was sleeping over. I was in the guest bedroom, getting ready to go to sleep. I had not yet crossed that threshold between wakefulness and sleep, so this was not a hallucination or hypnagogic imagery of any kind. I was fully awake at this point and quite lucid.

As I was laying on one side of the bed, as is my custom, I could not get comfortable. I was shifting, turning, laying on one of my sides to the next, trying to get into a comfortable position. Again I want to reiterate that I was only on one side of the bed, just twisting and turning on that same side.

Well, after a couple more minutes of shifting myself, I suddenly heard a voice right next to me say, “Fine, I’ll move, okay?” and as I looked to the other side of the bed, where I hadn’t been at all, I could see an indent on the pillow right next to where I was laying my own head.

I have to be clear. The indent was not from myself. I was only using up one side of the bed/one side of the pillow. Wherever this other voice came from, I could quite plainly see another indent where “he/it” was laying. I was shocked and almost terrified, but after the voice said he would move, I instantly felt comfortable and more at ease. Whatever this presence was, didn’t feel malevolent, and in fact I was probably honing in on his space since I had never slept in that room before. I was the one invading his space, apparently.

Well, after this presence left, since I didn’t feel any malignant energy from it, I laid back down and went to sleep. It was fascinating to me though that while I was essentially the unwelcome visitor, the “ghost” was pleasant enough to allow me to sleep there peacefully. I didn’t ask my friend about it because she was already a high-strung person and I didn’t want to alarm her with what seemed to be a relatively benign presence. Not sure if she would have believed me anyway.

Third: Outside Influence

During this time, although I have already some interesting, unexplainable experiences under my belt, I was still incredibly cynical and angry at God and other people. All I could see around me were injustices, selfishness, contradictions, hypocrites – I was fed up.

This experience helped to completely turn my life around.

I was working in a retail store, and getting really frustrated with a customer. She was not understanding a single word I was telling her, and she kept repeating the same questions over and over and over again. I was reaching my limit. After telling her probably around 15 times the answer to her question, I was getting extremely abrupt and rude to her and was just about to walk away from her. But then, a clear, concise, non-judgmental voice entered my head:

“She has early Alzheimer’s.”

That’s all the voice told me. I KNOW for a fact it didn’t come from me, because I was so set in my bitter thoughts and irritation at this lady that there was no place for “rational” thoughts. All my thoughts were anger and annoyance. After I heard this voice and understood the situation, I treated the lady much better and patiently and was able to help her through her purchase. Then she thanked me for being so kind to her (although just a few minutes ago I was quite rude and condescending), which made me feel worse and more aware of the way I was treating her.

After she left, I went into the backroom and cried for a good 15 minutes. It was my first encounter with a “voice” that did not come from me (or maybe it my Higher self?) leading me to choosing the right path. As I wrote here:

“I probably cried and sobbed for a good fifteen minutes just wondering what it was that happened to me and how I became the way I was. I was ashamed at the way I treated the lady; I was ashamed that it took a voice from an unknown being telling me the situation because I was too dense to figure it out myself. It shook me to the core.”

It was the moment that really cemented the notion that there was so much more to life and that there really were other “beings”, “guides” that were trying to help us navigate this life. And it also made me retrospect on myself and the way I handled things in the past.

Fourth: Is Remote Viewing Real?

I was at the same company and bored out of my mind. So I imagined myself at a popular tourist spot just to get away from the mundane, plain area I was in at the moment. It was more of a daydream trying to imagine what it would be like to be outside, in the fresh air, under the sun, taking in the sights, etc.

I thought nothing of it, until about a couple of hours later a lady came in and asked me, “You look familiar. Didn’t I just see you?” I said, “I don’t think so. I’ve been here all day.” and she was like, “No, I could’ve sworn I just saw you. Weren’t you at “Popular Tourist Spot?”

While I knew I was just imagining myself there earlier, obviously I wasn’t there in person, so I had no idea what to say. I was astounded. Maybe this lady saw someone who looked eerily similar to me, or maybe she could see an imprint of my energy focusing in that exact area or something. But the eerie coincidence and the timing of it blew me away. She even said the person she saw was dressed exactly like me. Could she possibly be more intuned than she thought, and could I have unknowingly sent my astral body out there to escape my physical confinement?

I can’t say for sure, I just know that it was another incident which made me question our worldly life and the possibilities that lay within.

Fifth: To Forgive, or Not To Forgive

This happened in 2010. And is another incident that I related in another post.

I won’t go into much detail here, since I’ve already outlined what I experienced (What is the Universe Trying to Tell Us?), but it was such a turning point for me and was one of the main messages that I always try to adhere to (much harder to do than to just say…).

For a quick rundown, while waking – I could feel the vibrations that I’m familiar with in order to attempt obe’s, lucid dreams, astral projection, etc. Well, along with these vibrations I could also hear, telepathically, a man’s voice asking me who I would forgive. If I responded with a “yes”, I could feel my vibrations getting stronger. If I responded with a “no”, then the vibrations would fade and get weaker.

After the “test” it occurred to me that I was supposed to reply back with all ‘yeses’. But as a moral human being, it’s hard for me to really feel that I have that capacity. I’m still trying to learn that it’s not my place to judge and that I don’t understand each individual case, so I am trying to leave my personal biases behind and become more of a compassionate and unconditional soul. (Again, much harder than it sounds, but I am trying.)

It makes me wonder why I was being tested in this way. And the feeling that I took away from it is that I could have done better. I wish I could say I have evolved significantly since then, but the truth is it’s still hard for my heart to truly forgive someone who knows that they are doing wrong, and won’t stop. I keep praying and asking for more help in this regard, also questioning what this entity wants from me, and the only takeaways I have is “forgive” and “love”.

Sixth: Inner Battle

This experience was also recounted here, same as the third event on this list.

It was literally a battle between good and evil. …Well, not really. But it was a battle of wits, between the “good” angel, and the “devil” on the shoulder.

I was at an atm machine, and realized that 60$ was still in the machine. There was literally an inner battle within me as to whether to take the money, or turn it in. (I already knew which decision I was going to make straight off the bat, so it made it even more interesting that I could hear these inner “voices” – consciousness, maybe? – trying to lead me to the wrong or right choice.)

I also had my son with me at the time, and I wanted to set a good example for him. Of course, that’s not the only or main reason, because I was already morally ethically inclined to return the money, but because I was so aware of the fact that I could actually hear these two voices, it made me pause for a second at the fascinating debate going on that was relatively outside of me, but within me at the same time.

And I do want to note, the “good” angel was a much quieter voice, so the “evil” one was more forceful, aggressive and loud. That voice could be heard loud and clear. The quieter voice was still, calm and in the background – as if trying to guide carefully and not wanting to put pressure on the final choice.

This was an enlightening experience to me, because it was the first (and only, at the moment) that I could actually hear an inner debate going on in my head between the right and wrong path. This dichotomy of good and evil warring for one’s very soul has been depicted throughout the ages, but to actually hear it going on within me, was an amazing revelation.

Seventh: The Meaning of Life

– Love is the Answer.
– Love Heals.
– Meditate on Love.

These were the signs I received after I heard an inner voice within me giving me the answer to the question I was contemplating earlier that day.

I was at a really low point in my life, and I remember just standing in the living room, and asking myself, “What’s the point? What’s the meaning of all of this?”

And that’s when this voice, whether it was my Higher Self, a different being, etc., simply say, “Love.” That’s all this voice said.

I scoffed at the time and challenged this voice, basically saying, “Prove it. If “Love” is the meaning to life, then give me a sign. Not just one sign. I want to see the word ‘love’, three times, TODAY.”

And sure enough, I got my signs. This was another account which I related here (What is the Universe Trying to Tell Us?) in more detail.

Now I know some people may say that because I was basically looking out for the signs, I made a specific effort to come across it. But I did not. As a matter of fact, I was almost in a stubborn mindset trying to deliberately be blasé about the whole ordeal. I was not looking for the sign, and I was not hiding from it. I was just letting whatever happen, happen. I figure if it was a real sign, then I wouldn’t need to actively look for it, which would obviously skewer my outlook on life.

But these signs came on unexpectedly, and the last one threw me for a loop, and really made me face the music that I really did hear this voice tell me that ‘love’ is the answer. Which is why my main key messages throughout this website is devoted to ‘forgiveness’ and ‘love’. Whoever, whatever this/these entities are, it has been leading me to the “right” path, and thankfully it has reached out to me, and thankfully I was receptive to these messages.

Eigth: Dream Guide

While I have had more experiences that have led me to my current lifestyle and belief system, I wanted to add this one last event that happened recently to help expand upon what is possible when we open up our mind and thoughts to getting insights from other avenues.

Not too long ago, I wrote this post: Is the Dome/Firmament Over Earth Real? to touch upon the interesting theory that no one has ever left Earth. (Despite what NASA and other space programs may have us believe.) There are some possible connections to Antarctica, and the huge ice wall that allegedly surrounds us.

Now, the dream I had the other night (3/25/2021) actually proposed an idea that hadn’t even occurred to me.

In the dream, at first there was a man in a jail cell. The cell surrounded him with metal bars on all four sides and above. I’ll call this gentleman a “dream guide” – I’ve had dreams of him before, and am reluctant to call him a dream guide, but have settled on that terminology for now.

I was there too, on the outside of the jail and asking him questions. Before I knew it, he had teleported me into the jail cell with him. Now I knew that he could get out if he wanted, and he could get me back out if he wanted, but I was stuck there without his help. Unless I could somehow dig under the cell.

Then the dream changed and now I’m in an extensively icy field, snow and ice all around, perhaps Antarctica, and I could see some people digging into the snow/ice. I realize that they are the researchers/scientists trying to study this place. Well, then my “guide” asks me, “What do you think they’re doing there?” and it occurs to me, at least in my dream, that they’re trying to dig under the dome/firmament. Since they couldn’t leave Earth from the sky, they were going to try and dig underneath.

The jail cell dream, and the Antarctica/firmament one, were both connected – and my dream guide was connecting these two ideas to present a different outlook as to what may be happening.

I found it fascinating, that I hadn’t even considered digging under the dome, until these dreams led me to this conclusion. Whether it’s real or not, the possibility that this may very well be what’s being attempted in real life, is a very interesting theory to consider.

All of these different experiences I’ve had have helped shaped myself and my own beliefs, and opened my eyes and led me to this journey of searching for the Truth. I have to say, it is an ongoing effort, as it seems that when I come across one possible key to finding the truth, it actually leads me into a rabbit hole so deep, that it ultimately becomes too confusing for words and I actually have to step away to gather my bearings and come back to it at a later time.

It is an ever-growing pursuit, and even though so many roads lead to so many different places, the point is to keep searching and keep an open mind and heart to finding the answer. All I know for sure is that ‘love’ and ‘forgiveness’ are two of the most important aspects to aspire to. Anything beyond that, as long as it is being done with a sincere and open heart – even if one is misled – will eventually bring them back on track and help them find more of their spirituality instead of leaving one focusing too much on the physical. Our purpose here has been tainted by materialism and division. We need to look, not only beyond our physical form, but within our spiritual form.

Those who refuse to believe there is anything more than the physical life, if they are too set in their ways, will sadly be lost to their own conscious beliefs – something that I was close to becoming. If it weren’t for all the help I received and myself finally shedding my rebellious and stubborn side, I would more than likely still be a skeptical, negative, cynical human being. Because of the outside help and the help I’ve received from within, I have now been on this incredible exploration and fully realize that there is much more to “life” than what it seems.

And if so, are you heeding His call?

“For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Matthew 22:14

For those of you who aren’t aware of The Parable of the Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14), it gives the readers a tale of a king inviting people to a huge wedding banquet (meant to depict the Lord inviting people to the kingdom of Heaven) and while the people who were invited were called upon to attend, none of them responded. Some were even indignant at the servants who were trying to give them the message to attend; so much so that these incensed people even killed the messenger. Literally.

After finding none of the people who were invited worthy to attend the banquet, the king then had his servants call to anybody and everybody who was willing to attend, both the bad and the good, and see who graciously came.

So the hall was filled with guests, yet there was one man who did not have the proper attire (a metaphor for not attending the kingdom with a pure intention), and so he was cast out.

Now throughout my life, and I would surmise yours too, there have been random encounters with “messengers” who have tried to steer me in the direction of the Lord. Yes, it included several different religions, including but definitely not limited to: Jehovah’s Witness, Catholic Church, other different non-denominational and denominational factions, etc. There have even been individuals who have asked if they could pray over me, not under any certain religious motivation, just from an honest perspective of wanting to pray for someone in the name of the Lord.

And again, I wonder if the same applies to everyone at least once in their life. (Of course, implying when one grows up into teen/adulthood and can understand this concept –  not indicating babies and young children that won’t quite understand this subject matter.)

My point is, I think we’re ALL called, whether some people realize it or not. Perhaps some will be called by others doing their brotherly/sisterly duties as a fellow human being, wanting to give people the “good news” that the Lord saves. Perhaps the call will be more personal, like a “divine” encounter of some sort, or even a strange “coincidental” incident that would be too hard to explain logically. Maybe the call will be more prominent, like a near death experience that jolts people into realizing the true purpose of life.

Has any of the below “callings” happened to you?

Fellow Messengers:

There are many testimonies of people who have been called to Jesus Christ through other people. And this heartfelt ministering (even if caught completely off-guard in a twisted turn of events) can have a life-altering effect.

Take the events surrounding Denzil Moses, an ex-gang leader who, after attempting to hijack a car, ended up being ministered to by the driver of the car.

The driver of the car, even in the face of a dangerous criminal, was able to look past that and see him as a fellow human being. It was this compassionate view, instead of showing fear, and his trust and faith in Jesus Christ, that startled Denzil so much that he wanted to know who this person was and why he wasn’t afraid of a tough gang leader. The driver stated that he was a child of Christ, and that God loves Denzil – no matter who he is, and this compelled Denzil to pray with the driver to be forgiven and to turn to Christ; even while he was pointing a gun at the driver’s head.

After this moment, Denzil states that he was a changed man, and he now works to bring light and truth to the drug dealers and gang leaders/members in his community, to try and help them find God and walk away from the dark corruption they were living in.

Saved by the young messenger in the car, Denzil is now a messenger himself; calling out to more fellow people to follow the ways of Jesus Christ.

Divine Encounter

In Elaine’s testimony, she describes her spiritual beliefs and how hard it was for her to overcome the New Age teachings in order to fully embrace the teachings of Christ.

Throughout all of her doubts and questions, and even living with a Christian husband and children, it wasn’t until the Holy Spirit came upon her that she was able to finally put her alternative beliefs aside.

“And remember that New Agers think that the world is evolving to perfection? Well, I also started to realize that the world was not getting better. That it is, in fact, really broken for some reason. In contrast to the brokenness of this world and the people in it, I started to see that God’s nature is holy and I started to realize that no one else is like him except Jesus.

At this time, the Holy Spirit was also getting through to me that I am not perfect and my concepts of perfection are not God’s concepts. Nice and good are not the same thing.

In the winter of 2008, my husband had to do extensive business travel, coming home only on weekends. It was during this time that the Holy Spirit led me through some good Christian books, one specifically on forgiveness. I was finally recognizing my own sin and I felt incredibly convicted.

It was at the Holy Spirit’s urging, a pressing not from me, that I was able to let go of the last “stronghold” of my New Age belief system, which was my belief in reincarnation.

I think it’s very interesting how she mentions “at the Holy Spirit’s urging, a pressing not from me” – I definitely understand how this feels as a similar occurrence happened to me when I was younger. Without wanting to sound “insane”, it is a very jarring experience when you have a sudden thought that you know is not your own. The only thing I could conclude is that it was a different entity trying to get my attention.

Needless to say, it worked. And I’m glad it worked for Elaine and cemented her belief and acceptance of Jesus Christ.

Quiet Reflection

Who said a calling to God has to be a huge affair or with extraordinary pomp and circumstance?

It could be something from within; a small, still voice or urge from your conscience that leads you to the right path.

So from 22 onward, I had begun searching for answers.

At first, I tried man-made solutions. I investigated various ideologies and pursued numerous ideas but nothing seemed perfect. There always seemed to be at least one aspect of each one that I didn’t agree with.

I became hazily aware that I was leaving religion on the table until other options had been exhausted. I eventually became suspicious as to why my brain seemed to be avoiding the topic. So, one day I took a walk down to the Fulham Road to browse through a bookshop. There, I found a King James Bible. I flicked through it for maybe 20 minutes or half an hour, then put it back. I remembered this book from my childhood, when I had received a portion of it at school. I then put it back on the shelf and left.

THAT WAS IT. That was the biggest defining moment of my life. It doesn’t sound like much, does it? However, Jesus has had a profound influence on my life since then.

A few weeks later, I went back to purchase that Bible. I took it home and attempted to read it but it was hard-going. I decided to focus on keeping the Ten Commandments. So, began my walk with the Lord.

The Day I Turned to God: How my faith changed my life.

This is incredible because it came from an unknown prompt – something compelled him to look towards the Bible as the possible solution, even after deliberately putting the idea on the back-burner as a last resort. And after that seed was planted, it grew and blossomed into the good fruit that’s pleasing to the Lord. And what ultimately led him to his path with Christ.

A Call From God

Not sure if this is an actual story or just a parable, but a very amusing tale none-the-less:

One Saturday night, a pastor was working late and decided to call his wife before he left for home. It was about 10:00 PM, but his wife didn’t answer the phone. The pastor let it ring many times. He thought it was odd that she didn’t answer but decided to wrap up a few things and try again in a few minutes. When he tried again, she answered right away. He asked her why she hadn’t answered before, and she said that it hadn’t rung at their house. They brushed it off as a fluke and went on their merry ways.

The following Monday, the pastor received a call at the church office, which was the phone that he’d used that Saturday night. The man that he spoke with wanted to know why he’d called on Saturday night. The pastor couldn’t figure out what the man was talking about.

Then the man said, “It rang and rang, but I didn’t answer.”

The pastor remembered the mishap and apologized for disturbing him, explaining that he’d intended to call his wife.

The man said, “That’s okay. Let me tell you my story. You see, I was planning to commit suicide on Saturday night, but before I did, I prayed, ‘God if you’re there, and you don’t want me to do this, give me a sign now.’ At that point, my phone started to ring. I looked at the caller ID, and it said, ‘Almighty God’. I was afraid to answer!”

The church that the pastor attends is called Almighty God Tabernacle.

Multiple Callings

Sometimes (often?) God calls multiple times, in different ways.

David Sorenson writes in this post: My encounter with God… Amazing testimony! about his adoration, and then breakaway, from the Lord.

As a young child, he would often be found on his knees, praying to God, all by himself. He even ministered to his own mother, “You need to pray more.” At nine, he wanted to be a missionary and tell people all about God.

However, as he got older, hardships and turmoil began to take its toll on his love for God, and out of rebellion and a desire to be tougher than the environment around him, he turned to dark habits to fill the void in his life.

He relays how after one especially brutal encounter with a drug overdose, the panic reached him and, with his mother’s help, he was brought back to God.

This started a personal relationship with God, with actual audible callings from Him to lead David in how to serve the Lord. David was able to open himself to reject the harsh lifestyle he found himself in, and humble himself to accepting the Love and Forgiveness that Jesus Christ offers.

Glimpse of the Other Side

I have mentioned Howard Storm multiple times on this site, mostly because his near death experience is detailed and thorough, covering a lot of bases, and is also very enlightening and touching. His is a testimony worth repeating, with a lot of important insights into the human condition and spirit.

What starts out as an out of body experience after passing out from stomach perforation pain, Howard Storm soon finds himself following unfamiliar beings down a long, gray tunnel; which slowly turns into a harrowing, tortuous ordeal as Howard Storm realizes that he has been misled by terrible demonic creatures.

With nowhere left to turn, Howard hears a tiny voice within him telling him to “Pray to God”. Thus begins Howard Storm’s journey into really knowing and having a relationship with God. You can read about his incredible testimony here:

Howard Storm’s Near-Death Experience

or check out this video (I started the video at around 35 minutes in for a real pertinent part, but the whole video is relevant and emotionally stirring):

There are many more ways that the Lord calls out to us. In dreams/visions, a specific song or book – playing/displaying seemingly just for you, an answer to a prayer, random epiphany out of nowhere, etc.

Regardless of the method(s), my theory is that we’re ALL called at some point(s) in our life, and the question is, are we going to HEED this call, or ignore it?

Are we going to reply to God’s calling with, “Not now. Ask me later.” so that we can resume our life without guilt or shame and only respond when we’re “good and ready”? (If it’s not too late by then…) Are we going to reply at all?

Are we going to let “pride” win and harden our hearts to the belief that ‘there is no God’ and that whatever this “calling” is, is simply a coincidence and nothing significant behind it?

Lastly, if none of the above has ever applied to you: if you did not hear the voice of God calling out to you, if you have never had a near death experience or similar pointing you in the direction of Jesus Christ or God and Heaven, if you have never had a strange encounter or coincidence leading you to seek the kingdom of God, if you have never had someone individually ask to pray over you and ask you to respond with an open-heart to the possibility of Jesus Christ being the Way, the Truth, and the Life, then consider this post, me, calling out to you now and inviting you to be a part of Love and Compassion that Jesus Christ was trying to teach the world.

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
2 Peter 3:9

God does indeed love you and each and every one of us, and it is not His desire to see any of us perish. Which is why He has given us many chances to repent and turn away from sin. All we need to do is accept Him in our life and sincerely love Him and others – as was Jesus Christ’s last commandments:
“30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

This is the most important commandment because if we just followed these simple life rules, then we would not want to sin in our deeds or against our fellow people. And we would be able to raise our spiritual inclination and our vibration to reach that of Heaven; and hopefully bring others with us.

I have now, as a servant of God, officially called out to you to invite you to the kingdom of Heaven. Will you attend with a pure and humble heart? Or will you cast this message aside and resume your worldly life?

Love to you all, and I hope and pray that more and more people will heed His call.

Is Unconditional Love Enabling “Wrong” Behavior?

Can we be loving, yet judge at the same time?

I was forced to think about this question when confronted by some in today’s society of “complete acceptance” of others no matter what views, thoughts, belief systems, etc. that we’re presented with.

However, that’s not entirely true, is it?

Let’s take a specific initiative, to… oh, I don’t know, let’s say, allow people (even children as young as three…) to change their naturally born genetic being into that of something different. Because, as we all know, children as young as three can definitely make up their own mind about things that are so far beyond their concept that to not allow it is an obvious affront to humankind. (In other words, how DARE we not allow a three year old to make up their mind about what kind of person they want to be? And how DARE we just not accept that a parent could be so cavalier as to make up their own mind about what kind of child they have before the child even develops their own mind to decide what’s right for them; while defying all scientific and biological evidence stating otherwise?)

But I digress. The issue here is, while there are some agendas being forced down everyone’s throat to just accept as “normal” even though every line of reason and common sense says otherwise, these very same people cannot accept our own points of views that don’t agree with their beliefs. We are expected to just fall in line and accept that these strange ulterior motives are for the betterment of humankind, but yet where is the acceptance of those who won’t cave in to this societal pressure? Why can’t this ideology of tolerance and patience/acceptance apply to people whose views don’t align with this new push to normalize… well, anything “they” want to?

And thus, my thoughts on this matter compelled me to think about complete, unconditional, unquestioning love for our fellow… people. (Can’t say “man” anymore, can I? Because that will trigger certain people and, God forbid, I can’t do that, can I? Oh, I suppose I shouldn’t say “God”, either, because that will trigger certain people too. Is there anything people can say that won’t trigger anyone? When did we become such a “trigger happy” society anyway? – Oh, that’s right. This whole narrative of division is cooked up by tptsb so we can perpetually be at each other’s throats for incredibly inane things instead of what really matters. It’s becoming clear now.)

My point is, while I agree that Love is the most important factor in the universe, is it possible to Love without condemning, but also reprimand if we know that the direction people are heading into isn’t right? Is it our place to judge? How do we even know what’s right and wrong in today’s world anyway with all of these excessive changes and expectations to conform no matter what?

20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.
Isaiah 5:20-21

As I was looking for the answer for this, I realize that there are many different opinions and we still may not know which is right, but I do have opinions of my own.

Now, to allow people to just do whatever they want, in an effort to not judge or disrespect a difference of view, may, in fact, be doing more harm than good. What is more loving? Allowing one to do whatever they want with seemingly no repercussion at all? Or loving them enough to try and get through to them that perhaps what they are doing is not morally/ethically right?

Even if you are not of the religious/spiritual belief, I’m sure there are still certain societal constructs that you don’t believe in and wouldn’t participate in. Does it mean you’re not accepting? Not tolerant? Not loving?

No, not at all. It means all of us have our own views and opinions, whether they are from logical reasoning and/or our own understanding of morality, or whether they come from a religious belief or upbringing. And in some of those upbringings/belief structures, there ARE wrong teachings, to be frank.

And in my beliefs (not religious – but I do believe in a Supreme Being, God, Creator – Love is the driving force in the universe), I believe that there are spiritual ramifications for the actions that we take on Earth. It is my love for humankind that compels me to call out grievances when I see it, because it is their SOUL that I care about. If I didn’t care about people and the possible consequences that they might be accosted with (when they crossover) I wouldn’t be addressing this topic.

Is it my place, or anyone’s, to accost this subject and the people who may need to rethink the trajectory of their life?

11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
Ephesians 5:11

I say as fellow humans, we have a right to call out those who are participating in immoral/wicked deeds. There is an agenda to turn what is wrong into “good” and “good” into wrong, as we can see in today’s society. But there is a way to approach it; not to condemn, but to try and be clear, direct but not confrontational, loving and patient, but still firm and reasonable. This might help to appeal to those who are misled or indoctrinated into this belief system.

But, we have to be aware that there are possibly people who are corrupted to the core and who are deliberately instigating these outrageous, sinful agendas for a purpose that many of us won’t quite understand yet. These people bank on the idea that they can manipulate the public and get the majority of the population into a specific mindset, no matter how ridiculous and egregious it may seem.

THIS is what we must stand against.

2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12:2

We can still be unconditionally loving, yet be set against wrongdoing and wickedness. And we can address this corruption in an honest, open and conducive way. While some may believe that there is no “spirituality” or anything after life and so they don’t take a stand either way – or even more disturbing, they’re a part of the corrupt agenda, we must realize that there are people that “wake-up”, in a manner of speaking (and I don’t mean the “woke” culture that is so prevalent nowadays and essentially harming our society), and they work towards exposing this evil motive.

The tale of Ronald Bernard, for example, is a heart-wrenching one, and a very scary glimpse into the world of the so-called “higher” class – and I can only hope that this gentleman is legitimate and not hiding an ulterior plan. (To be fair, I wish he was lying through his teeth and that people don’t do what he claims, but sadly, the wickedness of the human heart is probably much darker than some would want to believe…)

Testimony of Ronald Bernard about heavily damaged children and our liberation

“To me, what’s most remarkable about Ronald Bernard’s testimony is how he recognizes and treasures the wounded child inside each person, no matter how evil or hateful he has become.”
Ronald Bernard testifies again. Hard to swallow; hard to fathom; immensely courageous and compassionate.

Not accusing any of the below people as “evil” or “hateful”, but since there is so much controversy always surrounding those in high political positions, wanted to highlight a few of them:

Barack Obama – pic from piximus.net
Hillary Clinton – pic from Childhood Biography

How beautiful and sweet are these children? No matter how they grow up and which decisions they make, we all start out as innocent children. How about we love and appreciate them for who they are instead of trying to convince them that they need to act and/or BE a certain way to be accepted? (And how about we stop letting corrupt adults corrupt our children?)

9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
Romans 12:9

Ultimately, I believe that we all will be judged by a higher being, whether it be our own higher self or the Universal Creator. God knows what’s inside our hearts. And I would love it if more and more people would start to look within and start caring more for their fellow people. Care enough to call out wickedness and deception when we see it – instead of just tolerating it “out of love” (or not caring at all / or too scared to go against the narrative…), and help to set us all on the “right” path.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader.
