Bathed In Light

Matthew Chapter 4

16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them
which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

Well today i wanted to write down about a few things. And one of them is the true identity of Satan, revealed! It’s one of those things that is so plain and simple that when we realize it is True, we are amazed! Not at the complexity, but we are amazed at the simplicity. And it is like the Wizard of Oz, where everyone was frightened of the wizard and his power. But when the real identity of the wizard of Oz was known, the little fellow, everyone had a good laugh and no one was afraid of him anymore. But we’ll talk about that later. Because first i wanted to mention a few other things.

Now i have been doing some reading and i found a lot of information on the website http://www.thenazareneway.com . They have a huge library to read from. Including The Gospel of the Holy Twelve and some writings by Anna Kingsford called Clothed With The Sun. I recommend them both, as they have both helped my Understanding about several things. One of them being what Anna Kingsford reminded us in Clothed With the Sun –

“Desire first the kingdom of God and God’s righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Now if any of you have read my writings before then you may recall that i always tell people to follow God’s Commandments. All of them! And one of them is when Jesus commanded us “Pray ye therefore in this manner” and Jesus gave us the Lord’s Prayer. Now how powerful do you suppose the Lord’s Prayer is, when it was given to us by God HIMSELF! ? Very powerful indeed, And very important as always, to heed the Word of God and keep His Commandments, which is another of His commandments!

So while studying God’s Word, learning His Commandments, and KEEPING THEM, we say the Lord’s Prayer daily, the first thing we pray is “Our Father, Who art in Heaven”. Now me, i changed this to Heavenly Father, Heavenly Mother and Jesus, so that i pray to all 3. Because i am praying to God, which is ALL 3, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The very FIRST thing we pray to God, after we call upon Our Father in Heaven, is we say “Hallowed be Thy Name”. The FIRST THING! God’s Name is very Great, indeed! And we should never forget that! and it is a constant reminder of how Great God’s Name is, and that we should never profane God’s Name, or treat God’s Name in any way that is not Holy. This is very important. If we do not love God with all our heart, then we are not keeping the FIRST commandment. And if we break part of the Law, we are guilty of breaking the ENTIRE LAW. So we do NOT blaspheme God’s Name, because it is VERY HALLOWED!

Hallowed be Thy Name! Thy Name is very, very great indeed, God! God’s Name is very Holy!

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done.

This second part we pray, we are directly asking God , we are praying to receive the Kingdom of God and we are seeking God’s righteousness. As Anna reminded us, Desire first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and these things shall be added unto you. And this is exactly what we pray daily, if we follow Jesus commandments. We seek God’s Kingdom and His Righteousness.

Also Anna Kingsford helped me to understand about the commandment against graven images, and why.

Exodus Chapter 20

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of
any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or
that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the
LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers
upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that
hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep
my commandments.

Anna explains to us that when we create a material item as an item of worship, we are replacing the Spiritual God we know and worship, we are replacing the Spiritual with the material. And materialism is idolatry. When we create a graven image, we are replacing the True God, Spiritual, with a material item. And thus we would then be worshiping something material, instead of God! This is the very essence of idolatry. Replacing the Spiritual with the Material. I have gotten some good understanding from Anna’s writings and so i recommend them to others too. Here are the links to those pages.

The Gospel of the Holy Twelve

Clothed With The Sun, by Anna Kingsford

http://www.thenazareneway.com/Clothed%20With%20The%20Sun/table_of_contents.htm

Sometimes we have a Quiz to take, but today we are going to have an Exercise, later on.

But first, i wanted to mention a couple items about things that people told me. One of the things that some people have told me is that i, myself, do NOT know which people will be saved, and which people will not be saved. However, i have to say that i DO know who will be lost, and i DO know who will be saved! How can i know such things? Because, first of all, i asked God. But also because i have read God’s Word, and God’ tells us very clearly and directly in His Word, which is True, and cannot be changed, EXACTLY who will be lost and who will be saved. Those who “DO the WILL of the Father” will be saved!

Revelation Chapter 22

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have
right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the
city.

Matthew Chapter 7

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.

Exodus Chapter 20

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of
any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or
that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the
LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers
upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that
hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep
my commandments.

So we know, those people who DO the Will of God will be saved. And no others. This is partly about Satan, and who Satan is. But let me just make it clear that God makes it VERY CLEAR who will be saved. And God tells us how we can be saved. All of us. So we know EXACTLY who will be saved. Those who keep God’s commandments. Those who Do God’s Will. And we know that those who DO NOT keep God’s commandments will NOT be saved. It’s really very simple. And it’s all spelled out for us in God’s Word. That is how we KNOW. God told us.

Now the thing is, we are to be concerned with our own spiritual salvation. We know not what is in the hearts of other men, nor should we try to put ourselves in God’s place and try to know what is in the hearts of other men. That’s not for us to do. We need to be concerned with our ownselves, not what our neighbors are doing. That is why God told us Do not Judge, because we are incapable of judging! However, when we see blasphemers, and idolators, and adulterers, and liars and workers of all types of iniquity, then we KNOW, without knowing what’s in their hearts that these people do NOT keep God’s commandments. Because they go about OBVIOUSLY breaking God’s commandments in plain view for everyone to see! They make it clear they are NOT doing God’s Will! We don’t have to know what’s in their hearts. WE can see and HEAR them , and their actions are certainly much louder than their words. And God commands us, Scripture commands us to NOT have any fellowship with darkness, but to REPROVE THEM. And as faithful and loyal servants to God, we keep ALL God’s commandments. Irregardless.

To allow blasphemers in to one’s house and allow them to blaspheme God’s Name, is to give them permission to do so! No, we are not to sanction the workers of iniquity, we are to reprove them. Because we can only be for God, or against God. There is no other way to be. We are either a friend of God, or else we are against God. Then we would become God’s enemy. Jesus told us this, directly:

Mark Chapter 9

38 ¶ And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out
devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him,
because he followeth not us.
39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do
a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
40 For he that is not against us is on our part.

Who is not against us is for us. Therefore, who is against us is NOT FOR US. People who DO NOT keep God’s commandments are His Enemies. Because we are either for God, or against Him. We are either keeping God’s Will, or we are keeping someone else’s will. It doesn’t matter who else’s will, it is actually the self will of the individual. What does matter, is that we are NOT keeping God’s will! And since we are against God, then those folks have made themselves enemies of God. Because they choose to NOT keep God’s will, but to keep their own will instead. They are “against us”. Those against God will not be saved. Only those who DO the Will of God. Those folks who set themselves AGAINST DIVINE WILL will not be invited into the Divine Kingdom of Heaven!

When people tell me certain things, such as these, that no one knows who will be saved, etc, then i know that these people are foolish, or they are ignorant, because we have been given the Word of God and it TELLS us directly. These people should know, if they would read God’s Word it would tell them. This is an important reminder that if we want to learn about God, if we wish to learn God’s doctrine, then we need to learn from God. We need to ask God, and listen to God, and NOT LISTEN to mere men. Because men will teach us all manner of wrong information, because men are INCAPABLE of Teaching us GOOD things. ONLY God can teach us His Knowledge. And God’s knowledge is INFINITE! It NEVER ENDS!

Matthew Chapter 23

8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and
all ye are brethren.
9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father,
which is in heaven.
10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that
shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Pray to God for Understanding! Ask God your questions! Seek Truth from God! Men will teach you the commandments of men! There may be times when men may be able to help give us an answer to a question about God, but it would HAVE to be received of them from God! Truth can ONLY come from God! Men do not know the things of God and only God can teach them to us.

Matthew Chapter 15

7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth
me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men.

Yes, it is an important reminder that we need to seek God through God ONLY. We cannot learn of God through other men. We can only learn about their experiences with God, but to learn about God, WE HAVE to experience this through God, only. This will be part of our exercise a little later on. Because i first want to remind everyone how we are NOT to Judge others! If we try to judge others, we only make ourselves hypocrites! This is another commandment that Jesus gave us, and we need to heed His Word!

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.

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.

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?

Now this tells us to ask, if we want to receive Understanding. Seek. And this is critical information. I’ll get back to that in a bit, but first i wanted to mention about verse 9 and 10 which says if a son asks for bread, what man will give him a stone? This is very interesting, because i recently heard of a similar thing happening to someone i know recently. A “son” approached his so-called “parents” and asked them for bread, and yet, all the “parents” gave their “son” was a stone. They did not give him anything. Actually, what they did give him was they told him how to sign up for a free box of food, once a month, and then they sent him to get a free box of food which was some old stale chips and cereal. Food that people threw out, but someone salvaged it out of the dumpster. Then, those “parents” said “Enjoy your food. Goodbye.” and they sent the “son” on his way. Now the son had no lasting food or shelter or anything, and if he had relied on those folks he would likely end up dying of starvation and exposure, because they won’t give him anything, except a stone!

Now why would these people do such a thing to someone they called “son”? What man is that among us? Anyway, this is a good explanation, or description of what we are taught is the difference of having faith AND having works. Works is the DOING of God’s Will. How many times have i said those who “DO the Will of God”? Without the “DOING” of God’s Will, we don’t have any WORKS. We would simply just sit by, and have FAITH that we would be saved WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING! If we are to DO God’s Will, we must then have WORKS of Doing His Will!

What it comes down to, in the case of my “friend”, whom this happened to, is those folks who called him “son” but gave him a stone, those folks have “respect unto persons”. Those people have what God does NOT have, which is respect unto persons. Which means God does not have “favorites”. God makes the sun to shine on the evil, as well as the righteous. And we should be like God and not have any respect unto persons. Because if we do, we are guilty of breaking the Law! And, not only did they have respect unto persons, they did NOT have works! They gave their son a stone instead of bread! They were guilty of being hypocrites!

James Chapter 2

8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love
thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced
of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one
point, he is guilty of all.
11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill.
Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a
transgressor of the law.
12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of
liberty.
13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no
mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.

14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith,
and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed
and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are
needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me
thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my
works.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils
also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had
offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was
faith made perfect?
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed
God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was
called the Friend of God.
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith
only.
25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when
she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works
is dead also.

Yes, James explains to us that we need to have Works to go along with our Faith. Because what good is Faith if we don’t have any Works? What good does it do to Believe the Word of God, and then NOT DO What God tells us? NONE! We MUST HAVE WORKS! WE MUST DO THE WILL OF GOD!

Now having respect unto persons, that is something that a lot of people do, even myself included. Although i am studying and practicing to show self improvement, as best i can. And having respect unto persons is something i do occasionally, but now that i know better, i try not to. And how do i show respect unto persons? Well, let’s say i see some guy on the road with a sign asking for money. And maybe that guy is smoking a cigarette, and i think to myself, i will NOT help that guy because he is smoking cigarettes! Then i have just had respect unto persons, because i showed favoritism between people. We should not treat any person worser or better than any other person, for any reason. Because they are all equal to God. Even to ourselves. I begin to see by having respect unto persons, i am “judging” that person. I am making some sort of “judgement” against that person that i should not help him, but i should help someone else instead. God tells us directly “Judge Not”. And we need to remember to keep God’s commandments. ALL of them!

Now going back to what i mentioned earlier, that we must seek and we must ask, if we want to find something. Now some people might ask me, How did you learn all these things? How did you receive all this Understanding? The reason is because I ASKED. And God answered me. It seems like a great mystery, but it’s really very simple. And that brings us to our Exercise for today.

Our Exercise for today is going to be that we are going to each ASK God something. Just as Scripture tells us, Ask and you will receive. So we are going to Exercise this. This is a Faith exercise and will help to build Strength. Of course, the more we Exercise. Now the things we need for todays Exercise is we need to Love God with ALL our hearts. And we need to Believe. And we need to be Humble, and be polite.

So if we want to ask God for something, the best thing to ask for are things that are not selfish. So for our first step, we think up something to ask God that is not selfish. We can ask a question, we can ask for something for someone else, healing, maybe, some unselfish thing such as Understanding, or Peace of Mind. We can ask God anything we want. But we must understand that God WILL give us blessings of Love, Peace and Understanding, Faith, Peace, Fruit of the Spirit, and God will NOT give us selfish things such as material things, items of idolatry, or things of the material world or of the flesh. Because these things of the World are against God. And so we ask for Spiritual Blessings. Fruit of the Spirit. These are what we ask for.

When we have decided what we will ask God, then we pray to God and humbly ask God for what we want. Asking is Easy. But then we must be aware to receive God’s Answer. It might be in a minute, it might be one or two days. And we must Believe that God is going to send us an answer, and we must have our “recievers on” to receive it. If we are watching TV and listening to music all the time, we won’t be able to hear God. So we need to make a certain time available that we just “think” about God. Because if you think about it, thinking about God is praying to God, and when we pray to God we are just “thinking” about God in a little different way. But we are “thinking” about God. And then, over the next few days, i want everyone to listen for their Answer from God. This is the Exercise. And you must be Aware of God, and listening for God. And then, when God gives you an answer, you will be amazed! and you might say “How does that happen”? And i already told you how it happens. It happens because you ASKED!

I had also thought about earlier when i was reading the seven things that God hates. First on the list is a “proud look”. This reminded me of back in 2013 when Earth Mother, who is Heavenly Mother, the Holy Spirit, told me that She likes a “nice, humble man”. And so it reminds me to try and be humble as i can. Because this is our Heavenly Mother speaking to us in Proverbs. Now i knew the Proverbs were written by King Solomon about Wisdom. And i mistakenly thought King Solomon also wrote the book of the Wisdom of Solomon in the Apocrypha. However, i have since learned that no one is really sure who wrote Wisdom of Solomon, although there are a few theories. This is more information and understanding i received from reading the website http://www.thenazareneway.com

Finally, i have gotten to the part where the true identity of Satan is revealed! Who is it? What is the great mystery? Who is Satan? Well it’s very simple, really. Satan is Ignorance. Whereever people truly worship darkness, they worship Ignorance. Because they do not know. Because darkness is simply the lack of Light. And darkness cannot exist in the LIght! We see that it really is True! People who worship Satan are ignorant fools! Why? Because they worship Ignorance!

What causes fear? Not knowing. Ignorance is darkness, and people fear what they do not know. People who rule the world through darkness, do so by withholding the Light. Once people have Knowledge, once people Know the Truth, they have nothing to fear! Because they Know! They know God, and they know that lack of God is simply darkness, or ignorance of God and ignorance of the Truth. And knowledge is what makes things Real. Because without the Knowledge of what it is, NOTHING would exist! There would be Nothing, without Knowledge. And when everything is passed away, all the material world, there won’t be anything left of the physical world, the material world, EXCEPT the memory. The Knowledge of what happened. The only thing that will remain will be the Word.

So we can see, Knowledge is Power of LIfe, and Ignorance is death.

How do we know people who worship Satan are ignorant fools? Because we have the Word of God, and the Word of God is True and cannot be changed. And God tells us that those who are “not for us” are His enemies, and they will ALL be cast into the lake of fire. So when you see someone loudly proclaim that they are worshiping someone else instead of God and making themself and enemy of God, we can PLAINLY SEE that these people are ignorant fools. Because if they were not, they would heed God’s Word and save themselves. They were told they will be thrown into EVERLASTING Fire, and they do it ANYWAY!

Jesus even told us, when He died on the cross. Jesus prayed to God and asked His FAther to forgive the people who were torturing Him and Killing Him. Jesus said “Forgive them, for they KNOW NOT what they do”. They were totally ignorant! Because if they knew what they were doing, they would have stopped immediately and changed their ways!

Luke Chapter 23

33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary,
there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand,
and the other on the left.
34 ¶ Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what
they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Yes, Satan is ignorance. Ignorance rules the world today, and certain men use ignorance and darkness to control men and control the world. But soon it will be the end of Satan because Satan will be destroyed by the Truth! The Light will shine on Satan and Satan will be destroyed. Because Darkness cannot exist in the Light! Neither can the darkness overcome the Light! No, there simply just won’t be any darkness any more!

John Chapter 3

16 ¶ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through him might be saved.
18 ¶ He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth
not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name
of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world,
and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were
evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to
the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be
made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

If i told you the bridge was washed out ahead, the road is out and if you drive up there you will crash over the bank into a fire and get burned, would you listen? Or would you laugh stupidly and drive over there anyway and fall over the cliff and burn? If so then i would have to say that you were an ignorant fool. There would be no other way to describe you. When you were told beforehand, and you didn’t listen and went there anyway, well, we tried to help you but we were unable. Because you wouldn’t listen and you wouldn’t believe. Because you chose Ignorance over the Truth.

Matthew Chapter 25

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the
left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye
blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the
foundation of the world:

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto
you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from
me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his
angels:

Revelation Chapter 21

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things
new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and
faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the
beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the
fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God,
and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and
murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all
liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and
brimstone: which is the second death.

John Chapter 8

12 ¶ Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the
world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have
the light of life.
