IS GOD ALL POWERFUL?
DOES GOD HAVE AN INFINATE AMONT OF TOOLS TO BE USED AT GOD’S DISPOSAL? CAN GOD DO ANYTHING GOD WANTS?
HAS MAN DIVIDED HIMSELF IN TO FLOCKS?
THIS DENOMINATION, THAT DENONMINATION AND THEN TO NON-DENOMINATIONAL, WE HAVE DIVIDED HAVEN’T WE?
FROM GOD’S VANTAGE POINT THE WHOLE OF ALL THE FLOCKS WOULD BE ONE HEARD. WILL GOD USE ANY OF GOD’S TOOLS TO REACH ALL THE FLOCKS. IS IT GOD’S DESIRE THAT NONE BE LOST? SO AGAIN WILL GOD REACH OUT TO ALL THE FLOCKS BRINGING THEM HOME TO THE HEARD? WE DO NOT HAVE TO BE DIVIDED, AND BY BEING DIVIDED WE ARE SEPERATING THE HEARD. HOW CAN ONE SAY THEY ARE OF GOD (WHOM HAS GOT THE HEARD IN HIS HAND), WHEN THEY STATE THEIR FLOCK IS RIGHT AND YOUR FLOCK IS WRONG?
IF YOU ONLY LOVE THOSE THAT LOVE YOU, IN YOUR FLOCK, HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER FLOCK FOR THEY ARE CLAIMING THEY BELIEVE IN THEIR FLOCK JUST AS YOU CLAIM IN YOUR FLOCK. IS NOT THIS TRUE BEYOND ALL GIFTS, HOPE AND FAITH; IT IS LOVE THAT GOES ON FOREVER. SO THINK CLOSELY IF IT DOES NOT = THE LOVE OF GOD THEN IT IS NOT OF GOD. BY LOVE YOU ARE SAVED WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ANOTHER MANS’ SERVANT WHEN GOD HAS RECEIVED HIM? TO GOD A MAN STANDS OR FALLS, AND TRUST ME GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE ONE STAND, HAS GOD GOTTEN YOU TO STAND? IS GOD TEACHING YOU THEN LET GOD TEACH ANOTHER, ALL WE EVER CAN DO IS PLANT AND WATER, IT IS GOD THAT GIVES THE INCREASE. THE BELIEVER IS OF GOD AND NOT OF ANYONE ELSE, A DENOMINATION, A NON-DENOMINATION OR OF ANY SECT, CULT, OR ANYONE.
ONE VIEWS EVERYDAY ALIKE ANOTHER VIEWS ONE DAY ABOVE ANOTHER TO EACH THEY GIVE GOD THANKS, LET EACH BE FULLY CONVINCED IN THEIR OWN MINDS, REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU THINK IT SHOULD BE, AGAIN FOR GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE YOU, ME OR ANYONE STAND, FOR GOD HAS RECEIVED US ALL THE HEARD AND HAS AN INFINATE AMOUNT OF TOOLS TO USE TO REACH WHOEVER IS LOST, FROM WHATEVER GROUP THEY ARE IN. LIKE A BIG TAPESTRY BEING SEWN TOGETHER AND WHEN FINISHED WILL BE ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, KNITTING ALL THE FLOCKS BACK TO THE HEARD ALL BEING ONE IN GOD
LOVE YOU ALL, HOMWARDBOUND AGAIN
ANOTHER C.S. LEWIS QUOTE
In the midst of a world of light and love, of song and feast and dance, [Lucifer] could find nothing to think of more interesting than his own prestige.
This causes me to wonder about me, how about you? Are we born this way after Adam and Eve ate from that tree of evil, causing us to think of truly nothing else except our own prestige? Is this what Jesus was talking about to Nicodemus where Jesus said unless a man is born again, he shall not enter the kingdom of Heaven?
There was a man named Nicodemus, a Jewish religious leader who was a Pharisee. After dark one evening, he came to speak with Jesus. “Rabbi,” he said, “we all know that God has sent you to teach us. Your miraculous signs are evidence that God is with you.” Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”...
How can one be born again asked Nicodemus let’s read;
3 There was a man named Nicodemus, a Jewish religious leader who was a Pharisee. 2 After dark one evening, he came to speak with Jesus. “Rabbi,” he said, “we all know that God has sent you to teach us. Your miraculous signs are evidence that God is with you.”
3 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
4 “What do you mean?” exclaimed Nicodemus. “How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?”
5 Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. 6 Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life. 7 So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.”
9 “How are these things possible?” Nicodemus asked.
10 Jesus replied, “You are a respected Jewish teacher, and yet you don’t understand these things? 11 I assure you, we tell you what we know and have seen, and yet you won’t believe our testimony. 12 But if you don’t believe me when I tell you about earthly things, how can you possibly believe if I tell you about heavenly things? 13 No one has ever gone to heaven and returned. But the Son of Man has come down from heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life.
BEING BORN AGAIN CANNOT BE EXPLAINED John 3:8. So why are we explaining it as you must do this or that, you must be water baptized, speak in tongues, give your money away. Is not this way to do or that way to do from another sect prestige?
I think born again is born again and only those that are know it in them and there is no need to flaunt it. It just is as it is! There is no certain formula!
Ex: When you were growing up and went to a party. There was a guy there showing off acting all bad and stuff as if he were the cream of the crop, you know like happy days the “Fonze”. Any way my point here is that do you really have to worry about that guy, the show off?
No you do not, but most do worry about that guy through fear. It is like the cold war; the story goes that if you come over here we will blow you up. So through fear one would steer clear from there.
They had obsolete weapons and could not do anything, they were all talk just like that guy at the party, when the rubber hits the road they are powerless and truth is then known. This is truth with the devil to this day today John 16:11 the prince of this world has been judged!!!!!
This is what was thought about Jesus going to the cross to die, he did all those miracles and according to the people there that day he did nothing to save himself. Jesus was the guy sitting over in the corner helping all around him, and he was punished for this, yet he listened to his Father, and patiently awaited Father to raise him from the dead. So you too wait for Father to do in you what you think you can do and truly cannot. Father wants for you to be reborn as well read it romans 6:1 onward go to the cross in your mind with Christ die with Christ at the cross in your mind, come back to live as God the Father raises you back to life, being born again in the your Spirit by faith, I cannot explain any further than this, but if you want to know God you will see and do and you will know in you form God himself, thus born again.
Prestige - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Prestige refers to a good reputation or high esteem, though in earlier usage, it
So are you going to humble yourself as Christ did all the way to the cross, where from here Christ has the victory and when you just want to know God and nothing else God will reveal himself to you? Just have no other desire but to know God and you will be well taken care of, read the word for you to know God and read it for nothing else. Therefore you will know the truth the truth that sets you free, and you will be free indeed, nothing else matters, even if you are homeless, God still provides somehow, been there done that could be there again and do it again, God has got my back and I know this no matter where I go in this life I am totally covered and smothered in Christ. You are too once you believe and stop second guessing this truth
Homwardbound, believing is seeing.
I tell you truth I would rather be a blind man that sees, that a seeing man who is blind, you all have a great day.
New Living Translation (NLT)
3 And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.
Tell me does anything else really matter? Going to Church, Going Skating, to a movie, work, make a million $, read the Bible, know it and tell others it that you are right and you are wrong. No wonder we have so many different denominations. We are a stubborn people, wanting our own way and thinking when we get it we will be happy, otherwise we eschew it, when in reality it is best to want to know who created all of this that we see. And this is known starting at the book of Genesis, God created it all. Now we all have and can be caught up in this worlds’ Glamor and I say what it can profit a man to gain the whole world yet lose his own Soul. Yes seek the world and gain its money and one can do this, yet in the process tell me how did you gain it? Was it by trickery, did you steal from anyone, step over anyone along the way? I am pointing out what that verse means, if you go the path to become rich, and get there great, but if you did it by ill gains, God knows and the day of reckoning is coming. One will not be able to depend on the forgiveness executed at the cross where one sins and lawless acts are forgiven before you were ever born to gain money or any non-appreciation of this once and only act from God to where through this one receives a new life where they when they have received there is a point that they cannot go beyond, and that one’s Spirit knows who they are and will stop from harming another for they know God had Mercy on them, therefore they will show Mercy, and if not they are none of God’s even though they pretend in front of others they are.
Please be warned and react to God receive God’s Mercy provided for you at the cross, Change your mind from unbelief to belief in the living God through Christ, receive the Spirit of truth right here and now today, and know the only true God, having eternal life, because of Christ.

THE PERSON THAT SAYS IT CAN NOT BE DONE, SHOULD NOT INTERUPT THE PERSON DOING IT
For all things are possible, with God, the creator of all things here on earth. Notice I said with God, I have tried doing with self and have only succeeded with things here on earth following the law love my neighbor as self, thinking this is all there is and yet there is a lot more than just here and now. Even Christ said it straight out that his kingdom is not of this world; if it were then the armies of his would have come and taken it. Peter was convinced that Christ was here to set up his kingdom here on earth and fought for this and yet at the same time knew Christ was and is the Messiah, yet being confusing for Peter he went back and forth from Spirit to flesh (law) and then (law) flesh to Spirit. Peter taught under law even after the day of Pentecost, we was still water baptizing after the gentiles received the Holy Ghost in the house of Cornelius. Peter went by the new tradition that John the Baptist had initiated, which was only for the purpose to Baptize Jesus and announce to the Jews that their Messiah had arrived. Then John’s water baptism was over. John said it afterwards that he must decrease and Christ must increase, that he (John) baptized only with water, but he that came after him Baptizes with the Holy Ghost and with fire. Acts verse 5 confirms this:
Acts 1:5 New Living Translation (NLT)
5 John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
For Ephesians states there is only one baptism
Ephesians 4 New Living Translation (NLT)
4 Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. 2 Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. 3 Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. 4 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. 5 There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all.
Now going forward from the day of Pentecost, unto where Peter has the three dreams and is told by God that all things are clean of itself, then Peter goes to the house of Cornelius preaches the word and before he even is finished the Holy Ghost falls on the gentile race, before any of them receive any water baptism, but because of Peter’s faulty understanding of the new covenant he convinces them to be water baptized. But they already had received the Holy Ghost you all. So tell me was there a need for water baptism here?
Now the disciples kept up obeying the law to the best of their ability, going to the synagogue every day doing their prayers and all the traditions trying to mix law and grace. Actually mixing it and being stubborn to not let go of what they had been taught all their lives from birth as many of us do here as well today. God gave Peter three dreams to sort this out and Peter even saw the Holy Ghost come onto the gentile race, but he had to add tradition and add to the truth with water baptism. Peter saw the truth yet did not conform to it. He went to the gentiles preached the freedom, but when he saw his Jewish people he withdrew from the gentiles as if he were not a part of them and would not show to his race that he was free he hid this from them in fear or them. How many of us do the same ourselves to this day, and are caught up under law mixing it with grace and are miserable inside, not showing this to anyone and are mad as hell behind closed doors, for we know in our Spirits something is wrong and cannot quite place our finger on it.
Paul who was on the scene at this time took Peter to the side and rebuked Peter for this. Peter finally acknowledged this truth that Paul had revealed to him, Peter as well as the other 11 disciples started to see letting go the law, actually they came to repentance of the law, realizing that as it kept flowing through them it was killing them as Paul so well explained to them, that law and grace do not mix, just like oil and water cannot mix, never will, but they were still stubborn to not let go of all the law and asked Paul to at least keep the gentile nation to abstain from idols and lust of the flesh, Paul appeared to agree, and here came law to the gentile race and has we through our churches have camped on it, where we became a confused nation, mixing law and grace. When it is by grace one is saved and by grace alone.
So the disciples started to see truth as truth is, yet they just could not leave law completely. Paul at one point who tried to convince the Jews that what he had been telling them was truth and they refused this truth.
Acts 18:6 But when they opposed and insulted him, Paul shook the dust from his clothes and said, “Your blood is upon your own heads—I am innocent. From now on I will go preach to the Gentiles.”
Paul had learned the truth that the disciples later came to understand, but the Jewish race refused they were men of renown they had control of the people and wanted control as what was being done to the people when Christ walked here on this earth, showing them their freedom through belief in him Christ unto his Father. Remember when Christ walked this earth the people were amazed at his teaching. The people before long were not attending the synagogue; they were searching for where this Jesus was at. What do you think the religious leaders thought when the people were not showing up for their sermons? Yes that is right no one here no money, Job Security is what got them fueled they were on their way to being homeless, so they said they must kill this man, and then they set out to do this, so yes the devil is and was their Father and the devil was in agreement to kill Jesus the Messiah, but the devil did not realize what doing this would do, and it was while in this tragedy that looked bad it was for the good of this whole world, where from belief in God through the finished work of Christ we are free from the selfishness of self and world. We can truly love not of self any more but of the new self that Christ has given us through belief in him, via the Holy Ghost connecting us in the Spirit, our new inward man of the new heart, that we learn to follow. And God was doing this very same thing with the twelve that misunderstood the whole truth, yet they were still saved, because God is faithful. So God had to get his plan in action he tried with Peter gave him the dreams, poured the Holy Ghost on the gentiles at the house of Cornelius before any law was put in place and any water baptism was done. As a matter of fact is was by law; unlawful for Peter to even enter the house of a gentile. But Peter knew truth just as many of us do, but we still have a conflict in ourselves it is our flesh and The Spirit the new one that is one with God that we are fighting one against the other. The following is what I needed to learn and stay on top of knowing this, you decide for yourself:
Galatians 2:20 New Living Translation (NLT)
20 MY OLD SELF HAS BEEN CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST. IT IS NO LONGER I WHO LIVE, BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Once you believe; you are free from the old nasty self you hate so much, yet the moment you doubt this as truth you are back in your flesh it has taken back the reins steering you into destruction. Therefore recognize that this is not who you are as a born again believer, not under any law of the world anymore.
Romans 7:17 New Living Translation (NLT)
17 So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.
So how do we escape this?
First understand you are dead to the flesh reckon it as it says this in Romans 6:11 Reckon thyself to be dead indeed unto the flesh.
And this is only done through believing in the our Lord Jesus Christ, unto Christ’s Lord his Father now our Father coupled together in the power of the Holy Ghost of truth, that sets you free to be automatically loving no matter what and not the world’s way in order to get something. For you through belief have all you need for life and Godliness. What else do you need? Worldly things that all will perish with the using?
So who is it that saves us? Romans 7:21-25
21 I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. 22 I love God’s law with all my heart. 23 But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. 24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? 25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.
Yes you all only the living savior Christ can free you from this body of sin and death here now today, killing the flesh old nature in you, and you seeing this through the operation of God himself, go back to the word and ask God for the growth in him as an apple grows on a tree branch, the apple starts out perfect hanging off the tree branch, and it grows to maturity by doing what? It continues to abide in the branch and the branch continues to abide in the tree and the tree continues to abide in the ground. Without any abiding parts that do not abide die off, and you the tree branch cannot survive, nor the apple that was born through you, so just trust thus you will be abiding in the Lord. Does this help? John 15 does a good job explaining this please read it to know who you are as a child of the living God.
Loving you all to the truth that sets you free from this world and its traps, I tell you the truth just trust in the midst of whatever your circumstances are; hear in your heart what to do and do it in trust and see that God the Father of Christ will not ever give you a snake in place of bread. You will be moved and have your being, beyond knowing how to say it, you will just be and others will give God the praise in it, Hallelujah!!!!!!! So when you see the person doing it seek God and you will see it too, you won’t be a copy of the other you will be a copy of Christ as well, a doer of the word not a hearer any longer
Thank you Homwardbound
Galatians 2:20 New Living Translation (NLT)
20 My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Hebrews 4:9-10 New Living Translation (NLT)
9 So there is a special rest still waiting for the people of God. 10 For all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world.
Romans 7:17 New Living Translation (NLT)
17 So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.
2 Corinthians 5:17 New Living Translation (NLT)
17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
Galatians 5:17 New Living Translation (NLT)
17 The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.
Romans 7:24 New Living Translation (NLT)
24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?
Only Christ Jesus will and did back at the cross where it all started by taking away the sin of the world per John 1:29, then he was dead for three days which gave proof of his death for this new covenant that we all believe is in Hebrews 9:15-17. Then God the Father is no longer viewing any of us on the basis of sin and death Hebrews 10:17, as a matter of fact all sins are behind his back never to see again. This is good news isn’t it?
So do you now see your old self as crucified with Christ? For when in the Spirit of your mind you believe this; that you are dead to the flesh, you will automatically be alive to the Spirit of God, and here in this place there is no sin. And when you do sin it is your old flesh (sinful nature) doing it through you that is dead to God needing to be dead to you, it is not you that is doing it. So as Paul said die daily, practice creates habit, habit creates character, character creates trait. But just believe that by the operation of God that you are now alive in God’s Spirit and dead to your old nature the flesh.
So continue dying to the flesh and soon it will be a practice, then a habit, then a characteristic, then who you are in the traits of God, automatically this is who saves you God on the first day of belief, and through the holy Spirit God wants to reveal this to you. This is the part that God says to work hard at which is entering his rest. This is the only thing for us to work hard at is to understand God’s rest he has for us the believers in him.
Love you all now work hard to enter God’s rest, ask and you will receive, believe and you will know

THOUGHTS THAT CAUSE EXCITEMENT
Are these types that cause excitement from God? You might think so, but look closer are they? What kind of excitement, have you examined this? Do you think maybe you should? I know this, that I have learned to examine all, through my new heart where the Holy Ghost has taken up residence in me, working truth out through me, expounding truth, were it is that I no longer live, via my free choice. Now for me since this has been taking place, I have found out to be careful of anything that excites my flesh. Do you remember or are you still controlled by your excitement. Yes we are we like a rock, group, a country group, this movie that movie, this job that job, and on and on it goes the things in and of this world we go to through excitement do we not?
Watch this, one day Jesus had healed a lot of people in a certain town, after he was done; he went away the next morning he awoke and went off to pray. The disciples found him and said to him hey Lord everyone is looking for you, the people are so excited, man the miracles you did wow!!!!! So what did Jesus say? Let us look at the scripture.
Mark 1:34-39 New Living Translation (NLT)
34 So Jesus healed many people who were sick with various diseases, and he cast out many demons. But because the demons knew who he was, he did not allow them to speak. 35 Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray. 36 Later Simon and the others went out to find him. 37 When they found him, they said, “Everyone is looking for you.”
38 But Jesus replied, “We must go on to other towns as well, and I will preach to them, too. That is why I came.” 39 So he traveled throughout the region of Galilee, preaching in the synagogues and casting out demons.
Do you all see: watch out for getting too excited, listen in your new heart from God go out or in your closet and pray getting your instructions for the day as Jesus did, Jesus did not let any other excitement distract him from the instructions he received. You do the same stay the course, has any excitement that you have gone after stayed exciting, if it is has not then I guarantee it was from your own fleshly desires.
Watch you are free from the law; you can do anything you want. All things are permissible; just not all things are beneficial 1 Corinthians 10:23
You say, “I am allowed to do anything” —but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is beneficial.
You decide, I tell you what here a license to sin is, you are free to sin. After doing so for about a month or two, come back to me and tell if it has been any fun, maybe you have already been here and done this, so you know that without the law there is no more dominion over you. Yes sin takes occasion by the commandment. The strength of sin is in the law.
Try it walk away from the law, die to it, go and sin freely see if it makes any sense any more to do sin?
So far with you trying to obey the law, how are you doing? Ever since you became aware of the law, have you been sinning all the more? I know that when I became aware of the Law of Moses, the Ten Commandments and that I wanted to serve God. I wanted to stop this, that and that. I set out to do so and found myself getting worse as I was going, when I was in public I acted as if I had it together, you know just like everyone else acting as well, except you do not realize this that others are going through exactly what you are going through. You see when one tries to stop doing something that is not right; there is trouble in their soul and Spirit, hidden from the public, because of fear. Are you with me, do you agree here?
There is an escape brother, sister; it is confession, not for forgiveness for you are already forgiven. It is to free your soul from you being torn up inside.
Ex: you did something wrong as a child, a teenager, an adult. You did this to a friend, a brother, a sister, your mom, your dad; it does not matter to whom. What matters is this or these persons do not know you did this; Let us use the word stolen from: You see this person on occasion, this person is still angry over what happened to them years ago, you get reminded of what you did and this person(s) do not know that you are the one that did this to them.
It is time for confession regardless of how the one or how they might react. You see if your soul is ripped apart as mine once was, confess and you will be free. It was the hardest thing to this day that I ever did, but after doing it I tell you I was set free and am free to this day. So you go do the same be free in Christ tell the truth in all things to be free from sins in your soul, as God has already set you free through his Son Jesus Christ via your belief.
Now when you do this and someone says why I never, in response to you telling them truth, whether it be confession or being honest about whether you like their casserole or not, just say would you rather me lie?
You see we as people of our congregations have stated so well LOVE your NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF. Have translated this over to little white lies for we do not want to offend our neighbor, so we lie!!!!!!
Does this really love our neighbor as ourselves? No it is a lie and does not help our neighbor at all.
So again you all, tell the truth ask God how to say it in God’s words not yours, ending with when they are opposed for you telling the truth, asking them would you rather me lie? Be set free here and now stand for truth regardless of others, because life will get you if you let excitement take you, as what captures flesh into a tail spin and a crash. The flesh excitement is like jumping out of an airplane without a parachute it is fun with a parachute but not so much without one
Loving you all to truth Homwardbound

Matthew 11:28-30 New King James Version (NKJV)
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Please listen, if you are not at rest, and claim to believe, or have not come to belief, there is a rest waiting for your soul. Quit learning from man, start learning from God within your soul. Listen to things man says hear them, but no matter what sift all things you hear or even read through your heart, ask God for the heart of flesh his flesh that is? Look it can be a long path it has been for me, but what is said in those verses above is absolutely true. I found this out by staying the course, I did not give up wanting to know God. I did not give up in discerning truth from error. I was in bondage for years, trying my best to overcome sin, anger, frustration, and all I did was get worse and worse at it. I was heavy burdened, my life was not easy, I was mad at myself not being able to attain righteousness and wanted to so bad. I for years kept asking for more forgiveness to no avail, I kept on doing what I did not want to do, I found no rest. But I kept springing back up trying even harder to do what I found out that I never can do, ever.
When I finally came to this fork in my road, there it came to me, I heard those words of Christ, take on my yoke my burden it is light and easy. I heard them I understood them, yet I did not yet understand how to take this on, unto all things being easy, light, no heavy burden in anything. I saw through Paul’s writings, jame’s, john’s, peter’s how they became content. How Saul was changed into Paul. I saw the joy of others, and inside I did not have it. But I went out into this world every day acting as if I had it and I did, but I was lacking in my sin behind closed doors. I was like riding a fence my crotch hurt badly, living a double life.
Then one day as I am growing in grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, I finally felt the truth surge through me. Quit being like men in this world, give up trying to do what is right, this is what is stressing you out, re-read Romans 6 onward through 7. Just quit thinking about how you are going to get through tomorrow and or next week, let alone next month. I want you to know I (God) just love you and will see you through, I (God) just need for you to trust me (God) and that is all, when you do you will listen and become a doer above a hearer of my truth that I (God) impart to you through my Son seeing you are forgiven, there is no more forgiveness to be executed to you or anyone else it is done. Thus I (God) have come to live in you through the Holy Ghost to lead you into my Courts with thanksgiving and praise. Where your focus is only on me (God) thanking me for what I (God) have done for you before you were ever born. Receive this and be free in me (God) and you will be a doer of love, not a hearer as you were, for it is no longer you that are hearing or doing the love, it is I (God) doing the love through you and against such is no law. So in knowing this you can be in jail, and content, homeless and content, rich and content, because you have given it all up to me (God) So you can rest from all your hard labor here and now even though you still will work hard you just won’t notice it, because I (God) am your pinch hitter to your everyday life. Believe me (God) and you shall see me, just stay the course of knowing me (God)
Since I have continued the course all that is said here is truth, just you all stay the course and become free and happy no matter what is going in your life, is this not what everyone seeks happiness, not one day happy the next sad, no happiness that never leaves, no matter what troubles are in front of you, through trust in God, God said all things will work together for your good if you stay the course of trusting in God and no one else.
Love you all to you all knowing this loving God full of Mercy, finding out and taking on his yoke, his burden which is light and easy. Seek it out and you shall find it is better than gold.

QUOTE BY EINSTEIN
Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
LOOKING AT THE LOVEOF GOD, THE ABOVE IS EXACTLY WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR THE WHOLE WORLD WITH ITS INHABITANTS. Jesus Christ through The Holy Ghost unto his Father redeemed the whole earth, restored it to clean. See Peter in Acts:
9 About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds. 13 Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.”
14 “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.”
15 The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”
16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.
17 While Peter was wondering about the meaning of the vision, the men sent by Cornelius found out where Simon’s house was and stopped at the gate. 18 They called out, asking if Simon who was known as Peter was staying there.
19 While Peter was still thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, “Simon, three men are looking for you. 20 So get up and go downstairs. Do not hesitate to go with them, for I have sent them.”
14 I am convinced, being fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean in itself.
God the Father of Christ cleansed all things here on the earth. So actually what is left for you and me is what we do with it to keep it clean or make a mock of it and destroy our neighbor.
We have as people faked being good using words as I have been a bad boy, or girl if we see a way to manipulate our own way to our own needs, it is human nature and it is accepted this day to be alive in the flesh, which is what keeps one in sin, for all flesh is under law and sin takes occasion by the commandment.
Let me explain, when you were growing up under the control of your parent(s), or guardian, did you ever like being ordered around? When you were told to go to your room and stay there, did you? Oh come on your body might have been there, but you were not were you? And if you could sneak out the window and maybe get away with it, would you have or have you? Now is it clear sin (error) not good for you to do, it takes occasion by the commandment. Now do you see why it is not good to be alive in the flesh, for our flesh is like the devil, it came to steal, kill and destroy after the eating of that bad tree that masqueraded as good, passed on to us by Adam and Eve. First we are born of the flesh dead in the Spirit of God, being our own God made by others to be their servant, them playing God over you. Thus when you get old enough to be on your own you do the same thing play God over your children and others that will let you.
Tell me when we are going to give up, and see the destruction playing God does to us and all those around us? We use the excuse we are protecting ourselves from harm, so we become mean, proud, boastful, or cower down to be used by others that we are closed to. Man when does this all end? I tell you when you go to God the creator of all and give up to God all you have, not to others but only to God. See Truly God is the only one that truly loves you period and God truly as long as you have no doubt will always come through for you. God through you being dead to your selfish flesh via belief you come alive to God and will be led by God into the truth that sets you free. When you read the word it comes alive to you the believer. When you finally rest in God no doubting, man I tell you it is awesome, but it does take a long time to come through the evil ways of this world. It is like peeling an onion it makes you cry at first, but when you get to the center through your tears there is complete joy for the center is sweet. Or like having a child there is much travail during the labor, but when the baby is born there is complete joy, and the labor pains are forgotten about after you see the baby. This is how it is searching for truth, there are many pains, disappointments, unsuspecting things that are there to derail you from knowing the truth, that sets you free. This is the flesh that fights the Spirit of God Galatians 5 read the whole chapter and ask God to reveal truth to you. I challenge even if you have read the bible before read it again, but this time and every time read to know the living God of Christ the Author and finisher of your faith
Loving your flesh to death to be put back to life in the Spirit of God as was originally intended to be, before Adam and Eve ate of that wrong tree that they knew not to do, but listened to the serpent and took the fruit. Today though we get to eat from the tree of life and live forever, doing what is right, because through Christ we are made perfect, reconciled, to God the Father, forever Holy in Father’s sight, all I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you again and again and again, how about you? In short words from God to you!
God speaking, I do not want you to quit the old sinful life, you can’t, have you not tried long enough to know that you can’t. My first chosen could not, so what makes you think you can, could it be your flesh’s stubbornness?
You see I want you to start the new life of love, and the old life of selfishness will go away. Tell me if you are busy working will you have time to steal? If you are busy loving your wife will you have time to commit adultery?
Get it, are your ears opened?
Love you, Homwardbound
PEACE IN THE MIDST OF ADVERSITY
How can one rejoice in the midst of adversity? Do any of us welcome any type of problems?
What does James say?
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 Those who doubt should not think they will receive anything from the Lord; 8 they are double-minded and unstable in all they do.
12 Blessed are those who persevere under trial, because when they have stood the test, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each of you is tempted when you are dragged away by your own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because our anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
John 16:33 Today's New International Version (TNIV)
33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Christ speaking here you all. Can you now learn to trust in the midst of your adversity, knowing somehow God will see you through and you can learn to avoid adversities through the trust you learn by the patience you learn from adversities in your life!!!
Love you all, count it all joy when you enter into divers temptations, look beyond the curtain and see what is there for you to learn.
FORGIVEN BEFORE THE CROSS BY GOD IN THE FLESH CHRIST THIS IS!
Matthew 9:2-6 New International Version (NIV)
2 Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.”
3 At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, “This fellow is blaspheming!”
4 Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, “Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? 5 Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? 6 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “Get up, take your mat and go home.”
Mark 2:7 New International Version (NIV)
7 “Why does this fellow talk like that? He’s blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
Luke 5:21 New International Version (NIV)
21 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law began thinking to themselves, “Who is this fellow who speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
GOD CAN DO ANYTHING GOD WANTS AND GOD IS RIGHTEOUS IN ANYTHING GOD DOES.
God created the universe, and this world that became fallen when Adam and Eve ate from that tree of evil masquerading as good. Today though it is completely restored through the crucifixion of Christ
Are all things God’s? Can God the Father without the cross of Christ forgive sins? Has God done this? Yes God has had Mercy since the beginning, for God clothed Adam and Eve, showed Mercy even after that. Look back at all the Old Testament Saints, were they justified? Did they walk by law or by faith in God? Had Jesus been revealed yet? So there were forgiven people by God, where God did not impute sin? King David is one great example, entering God’s courts with thanksgiving and praise.
Psalm 100:4 Today's New International Version (TNIV)
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name
If someone broke into your house and stole your TV would that be theft? If God did this would it still be theft?
I say be glad exceptionally glad that God chose to give each of us free will. No matter what you do, right, wrong, righteous, evil, you have free will.
Now I know I do not like to be ripped off and neither do you I am sure? It does happen though, and when this happened to me more than once, whether I deserved it or not is not the issue, and of course I automatically think I do not deserve being stolen from, when actually I deserve death period, but God chose to give me life instead of the knife, and this is because I sought God’s Mercy as the Old Testament Saints did. Therefore I extended Mercy to others, even though my flesh did not want to. Because I have received Mercy I am giving Mercy.
Regardless, whether one deserves to be stolen from or not, the issue is it is not pleasant. Therefore you might be asking for free will to be taken away.
There is only one problem with one’s free will being taken away, if God takes away the thief’s free will then all free will would have to be taken away. You cannot just take away one or a group and not expect yours to not be taken away as well.
So do you, I know I don’t want free will taken away?
I thank God for free will every day, and by this free will I am able to trust God for me to truly love God and my neighbor as myself. If I am in a bind of any sort I know I can trust God to see me through, how about you? When you actually put your trust in God over the human race including yourself the flesh that is, you will see the freedom I see, this freedom is righteous it is God’s handed over to you, entrusted to you the believer in God. You are forgiven and probably have quit sinning and or on that path entrusted to God, and will quit sinning, you will not have time for it anymore. God who knows no sin will take all your sin away through trusting God to do this. God does this by God’s Mercy that God showed Adam and Eve from the beginning.
GOD JUST LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~!!!!!!!!!!!! BUILD YOUR NEW LIFE IN GOD FROM GOD JUST LOVE YOU
Love you all unto God everlasting

THE MIND IS SO POWERFUL, BEYOND ONE’S WILDEST DREAMS
When you sit to dine with a ruler, note well what is before you, and put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony. Do not crave his delicacies, for that food is deceptive.
Proverbs 23:7 New King James Version (NKJV)
7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
“Eat and drink!” he says to you,
But his heart is not with you.
Now this is talking about food, the eating of it. What about, one’s thoughts, cravings, desires, it really starts at food that one eats, yet goes much deeper, does it not?
What was lost in our minds at the fall of Adam and Eve? God said now we have become like God, actually like us.
21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” 23 So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
Adam and Eve lost out that day, and man has been fighting since that day to get back to the rest he had before the eating of that knowledge of good and evil were opened up to him, being aware of being naked, now cold or hot, happy then sad, working the ground to bring forth food, yet seeing it cursed, thorns and bristles, by the sweat of his brow toiling day and night to make ends meet. Searching for happiness continuously, finding it but it never lasting, only temporary joys of fulfillment.
Is this going on for you today? Have you been restored to know that God just love you yet? Even though you are going through problems, maybe no job, maybe death in your family, maybe stolen from by others, maybe you are the thief, maybe life to you is unfair, you have done all that is right and still not blessed, as you have been trying to be from your own works as this world teaches. I am speaking in generalities, for you to look at self and see from inside yourself what is it that you truly want above everything else?
I know for me I want LIFE, beyond the physical realm, and it seems to me that there is life beyond this physical realm. We are using energy to light this world, the energy that is sustained always in the air around each and every one of us, and man has harnessed much of it, and is trying continuously to harness it all, being God of God the one that created all the energy to begin with. I think this is why we are held back, we are selfish wanting life everlasting and this was blocked from the day that God put Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden, in Genesis 3:24. Now it is mentioned there that God did this so man could not gain eternal life, and this eternal life was in the tree of life and is today.
So what is this tree of life, that one could receive eternal life? Now if Adam and Eve would have eaten off of this tree first would we have gone through what the earth is going through today?
Man today through God is restored to this tree of life, man today could eat and drink off this tree of life, but do we? Again who is this tree of life since the beginning? It was blocked off by God after Adam and Eve were put out of the Garden; an angel was put there to keep anyone from reentering the Garden guarding the tree of life.
Is this tree of life Jesus Christ, or are we still baptizing people in water waiting for the Messiah still to come? Did Jesus perform mighty miracles, raising the dead, making the blind to see, the lame to walk, many times over? Has anyone else surpassed what this man Jesus has done?
Therefore I say this Jesus is the Messiah, the only way to God the Father of all. The only one born perfect after the first Adam, making Jesus the second Adam, yet this second Adam remained perfect for he did nothing or said nothing except the Father tell him to do, and all was done and is done by Father in love to Father’s creation which is us. Father knows that what was done by Adam and Eve was not any of the siblings fault, we all are born into this world in the similitude of Adam and Eve, except Christ. For Christ was born of a virgin, this is why Christ is and was the only one that could behave perfectly and no one else can. Except today the ones that believe and trust Jesus’s finished work, the foundation being the starting point of one’s new life in the Spirit of God the Father, will from God’s vantage point actually obey the truth, will truly love their neighbor as themselves, this will be not be from the world’s point of view, this will not be look at me, I deserve this or that, or even this I have not been good enough so I do not deserve this or that.
From God’s vantage point it is no longer about good or evil, it is about trusting God above everything else. Do you trust God above all things here on earth including yourself? Are you now seeing what you are doing, creating your own future through thinking good or bad, thinking you are blessed if you do good and not if you do bad? Do you see how you are being used by others in this world through your thinking process? AS a man thinks in his heart so is he. Do you see this all your feelings emotionally are from your dominant thoughts. If you think you will strongly enough you will do whatever it is you are thinking. Do you believe that God is capable of teaching you how to mortify the deeds of your flesh? Then why am I still sinning. Romans 6:1 and onward teach that I have through belief died to sin with Christ at the cross of Christ and come alive to God in the Spirit of God? Do you believe this? Why not start today, and see how powerful your mind is, that God made for you, again as a man thinks so is he, this is powerful, and when in God I won’t use this power to deceive, for when I do I am out of alignment with God the creator of all. Now I know I do not ever wish to be out of alignment!
Anger, frustration, fear, emotion leading my life, wanting control of, are the causes to being out of alignment with original creation from God. These emotions were not in the thoughts of Adam and Eve prior to the eating of that evil tree, and if they had not eaten then these emotions would not be affecting the human race as it does to this day.
Therefore, let us see why God had his Son do what his son did. It was to reconcile the world unto himself, not counting anyone’s sins against them, all the way back to Adam and Eve, and up to this present day. By sin being out of the way of Father, Father comes to live in the believer through the power of the Holy Ghost, thus teaching each of us together and individually how to say no to unrighteousness through the finished work of Christ at the cross, being the foundation of one’s new life in Christ, where we no longer live as in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit of God forever and ever.
So being a new creation back to the life that was in the Garden prior to eating from the tree of evil. Today we get to eat from the tree of life, and live forever, Here Christ at the last supper telling his disciples, whom he is.
26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”
27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the[b] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
Do you see the parable here that Christ is the tree of life that was guarded to be kept to be eaten from until the day of redemption came? Therefore you get new life through belief in what God has done for you via the tree of life that we get to eat from today and every day forever after you seek the mercy out that God has for you through his son Christ. Seek it out, work hard to enter God’s rest read Hebrews all of it, seeking to know God and God will reveal God to you the one and only.
Love you all, Homwardbound
