Ascension

July 22, 2014

Recently i thought about “our generation”. I think our generation is everyone who is alive at the moment. I don’t think grandparents and parents, children and grandchildren are separated from each other. Rather, i feel that we would be called “our generation”, meaning, everyone who is alive right now.

I also thought about Jesus. A few things. For example, Jesus did many miracles. Jesus healed the sick and the lame. Jesus healed people from death. Jesus raised people back to life again. Blind people could see again, Jesus performed many miracles. I wonder, if Jesus had performed all these miracles, and if He died and never was raised back from the dead again, would the Bible even have been written? Was the Bible written, not only because Jesus did perform so many miracles but also because He died, and came back to life again?

As far as i know, the records of Jesus are the only records of any person that died, and then came back to life again. Now i begin to understand more about Jesus, and why He is so necessary. Because of Jesus, we can now identify God. We know who God is. He is Jesus’ Father. And we know this because of the Scriptures and the eyewitness testimony. So, unless Jesus came to Earth, we would be unable to identify who God is. We could all talk about God, but without a reference, such as Jesus, we would not be sure we were all talking about the same God. We could see God perform a miracle, but without knowing Jesus, we wouldn’t know who was performing the miracle. This is why when we pray, we pray in Jesus’ Name. Because when we pray in Jesus’ Name, we are praying to Jesus Father. This is how we identify who God is. We all know who God is now. When we pray in Jesus’ Name, this indicates to Whom we are praying. Our Father, who art in Heaven. Without Jesus, we may be aware that God exists, but we would have no idea who exactly He Is. We may all have different ideas of who God is. But thanks to Jesus, we now all know exactly who God is. And when we see God’s Hand in the world, and God tells us She is the Mother of Jesus, then we know exactly who God is. 

This is what it all comes down to. Believe. Those who believe that Jesus died and was risen from the dead, because His Father is God. Was this the whole purpose that God sent Jesus to Earth? There maybe those who think it is all false, or else Jesus was a fake. But why would Jesus want to be a fake? The only thing Jesus would get from pretending to be the Son of God would be to get horribly crucified. Jesus would receive nothing in advantage to being a fake. Fortunately, we have the prophets, the Scriptures and Moses to tell us, so we know that Jesus is the Son of God. 

Another thing i thought about, is well, i thought about it before. And that is, now that i have told everyone about Jesus and Heavenly Mother and Heavenly Father, now everyone knows and they can either believe or not believe. And so, since i have told everyone as much as i can that Jesus is Lord and Saviour, i thought, well, i told everyone, so my job is done. If people believe, or if they do not believe, well, at least i told them. And since i told them, even if they don’t believe, well, what is the point to keep telling them over and over? I did tell them. No sense to just keep repeating myself over and over, especially if some people hear, but still don’t listen or believe. I thought i could just stop telling everyone the Truth. However, now i see that i cannot just stop telling people about Jesus. It’s too important. Time may be running out. I realized, when we are doing God’s work, or helping God, we can’t just quit our job. God’s work is too important to just quit. We can’t stop telling people about Jesus just because they didn’t believe the first time. I didn’t believe the first few times i heard about Jesus. This is why we have Sunday school and church every Sunday. We have to keep telling everyone, until everyone is saved. If we stop telling people about Jesus, they might forget. They might think it wasn’t important, since we just stopped talking about Jesus. So God’s work must go on every day. I may not post my blog every day, but i will be carrying out God’s Will the best that i can every day, by listening and trying to stay close as i can to God so that i can hear and write down everything that i can. We can never take a day off from God’s Work because God’s Work is never done here on EArth.

One more thing i thought about is something i hear about sometimes, and it is called Ascension. People write articles, how to ascend, what is ascension, and so on and so forth. Now i kind of understand a meaning of ascending. In my studies about chakras, i learned there are 7 basic energy centers in the human body called chakras. The lowest level is called the root chakra and deals with survival instincts. Going up the chakra levels are second chakra, sacral chakra dealing with sexuality, the third level called manipura deals with power. The fourth chakra is our heart chakra and deals with love. Five, six and seventh chakras are communication, intuition and spirituality.

Main-Chakra-Centers-of-the-Body

Now initially at birth we are in the root chakra, struggling to survive. As we mature, we can ascend. What i mean by this is, instead of living our lives in the first root chakra, the basic survival mode, we can ascend up to the next level, one by one. So we could say that by growing and maturing and developing into our higher level chakras, we ascend from the root level, up each level, until we reach the highest level, the seventh and crown chakra, dealing with spirituality. So we could say that we are ascending by developing our own selves to raise our consciousness to our higher levels of energy or chakras. As opposed to staying stuck in the root chakra, for example, lets say, by failing to know about chakras. I don’t know what others mean by ascending, or ascension. But to me it indicates our level of development on the chakra ladder. And ascension is moving up the ladder. Then, if we achieve all seven levels and success in seventh and spiritual chakra, then we could possibly ascend even into Heaven. This is what i think ascension means to me.

I listened to the letter from Dr King the other day, the one he wrote from jail. And i kind of feel like Dr King in one way. That is, if i have been too hard on my brothers, and i know i have been hard on some, then i ask for forgiveness of my brothers for being too hard on them. On the other hand, if i was not hard enough on some of my brothers, and i could have saved more souls by being harder, then i ask God for forgiveness. You see i am in a unique position where i have to try and convince my brothers that i care about them and love them by using fear and by using compassion. I feel i walk a thin line where if i don’t try hard enough i may fail, or if i try too hard i may make a mistake and also fail by failing to love my brothers or failing to be kind to my brothers. So i hope that i will do my best everyday. Because that is the best that i can do. And if i fail, or when i do fail, it is because i am small and weak and i am incapable of being perfect. However i will continue to try my best. It is the least i can do. I will continue to pray to God to help me do the best that i can.

Even when we were children, our parents sometimes became very serious with us and dealt with us harshly at times. They did this because they cared about us and tried to protect us by teaching us things that we needed to know. If our earthly parents are so concerned with our physical lives and our safety here on Earth, how much more so do our Heavenly Parents become concerned with our Spiritual safety and our Eternal Lives? God loves us very much. Each and every one.

The Narrow Way

Matthew Chapter 7

JUDGE not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with
what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but
considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of
thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and
then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s
eye.

Verses 1-5 Jesus is telling us not to find fault with our brothers, such as finding fault with their church or their doctrine. Because we all are imperfect and therefore we are incapable of judging others. We would be hypocrites. If we cannot see clearly because we have a beam in our eye, then it would be a case of the blind judging the blind. Once we correct our own vision, we can then help others to See. Again, as we do unto others, it will be done unto us. Let us not judge our brothers. Rather lets try to help each other instead.

6 ¶ Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your
pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn
again and rend you.
7 ¶ Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and
it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

If you want something, you have to ask for it. If you really want something, you may have to ask several times. And if you don’t receive what you ask for right away, you keep asking every day. If you don’t receive what you ask for in time, try to think of a different way to ask for it. Ask yourself, Why do i want this? Is it for selfish reasons, or is it for unselfish reasons? I don’t like to ask for too many things from God. But Heavenly Mother told me that it is OK to ask for unselfish things, such as peace of mind and understanding or to pray for others, for example.

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he
give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your
children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give
good things to them that ask him?

Here Jesus sums up the entire Law

12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to
you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Verse 13 and 14, Jesus is telling us that the road to destruction is broad and has a wide gate. That means it’s easy to enter the road to destruction. But it is not so easy to enter the way which leadeth unto life. It is narrow and has a narrow gate. That means it is more difficult to enter. What is the difference? It takes more searching to find the strait gate, and it requires that we not just read and hear the things Jesus tells us, but also that we do them. Going to church every Sunday won’t be enough to get you into Heaven. Sending money to a church won’t save us if we are idolaters. If we judge others and are hypocorites, we won’t be saved, even though we asked to be saved. The same for liars. Understanding that Jesus is the Only Way to Heaven. Jesus is the narrow Gate. We must learn and follow the commandments if we want to enter Heaven. We must love our brothers as our ownselves. This is the Law and the prophets.

13 ¶ Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is
the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in
thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth
unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 ¶ Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of
thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt
tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree
bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and
cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

False prophets tell us it’s easy to enter Heaven. They make a broad way unto destruction and mislead us to think it is the way to Heaven. They may lead us astray if we don’t read and follow the Word of God. Does the tree bring forth good fruit, Love, and help people enter into Heaven? Or does it bring forth evil fruit and mislead people onto the path to destruction? Does the evil tree say, You can just go to Mass and be saved, and don’t worry about killing your brothers in a different country, because that does not matter? Do they tell you it is OK to change the Word of God and to add to it and to take away from it and change it and then say it is the Word of God? Do they tell you that if you are once saved, you are always saved, no matter what you do? Do they tell you lies, such that human priests are able to forgive sins? Or that your sins will be forgiven by repeating certain poems over and over? Beware of these ravening wolves, because they will destroy your Spiritual Life. Read, learn and follow the commandments of Jesus to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. It is the only WAy to Heaven. It is very narrow and specific.

Here in Verse 21, Jesus tells us exactly who will enter into the Kingdom of HEaven

21 ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is
in heaven.

So let us learn what is the Will of God and let us carry out the will of God on Earth as it is in Heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not
prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in
thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from
me, ye that work iniquity.
24 ¶ Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a
rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,
and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a
rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them
not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon
the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,
and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the
people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
Chapter 8

I thank God for helping me to understand these things. I do have more questions though, and there are some things i don’t understand. Such as, even though i asked for forgiveness, and God granted me forgiveness, and even though i try to stop sinning, why do i keep sinning? Is it my nature to keep sinning? I don’t understand, because Jesus taught us to pray everyday and ask for forgiveness everyday. So we are imperfect, and therefore we need to ask forgiveness everyday. I don’t completely understand this so i will think about it some more. I guess it means that i can try to be perfect, but i never will be. And all i can do is try to do the best that i can.
