Crystal Clear

Now and then, certain things become crystal clear. Sometimes they are very amazing. Sometimes they are very amazing, because of how ridiculous they are.

For example, i wrote down about how God came to make peace with man, not war. God previously told me in 2013 that God did not come here to destroy men, but to save them. I said, i know You are God, and Everything, but i don’t know how you are going to do that. Because these people don’t listen to anything. But miraculously, He did.

Luke Chapter 9
54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord,
wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and
consume them, even as Elias did?
55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what
manner of spirit ye are of.
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save
them. And they went to another village.

But that’s not the point. Because now i also understand that it was NEVER the intention of God to wage war on man! It’s ridiculous. We are God’s children. He loves us dearly and wants us to live in Heaven. It was man’s own foolishness and pride that made man think he would go against God, or wage war against God. We don’t want to wage war with God, we want to love our Father. And our Heavenly Mother. And Jesus. We don’t wage war with them. Why on Earth would you want to do that?

Maybe some people want to? but i don’t know. I do understand if you deny God is your Father, then He has NO CHOICE but to tell you if you are not HIs child, He doesn’t know who you are then. He has to deny you.

I was also wondering about certain things i read in the Gospel of the HOly Twelve. I really like that Gospel. I can understand certain things a lot better. But one thing i read was that Jesus said that all His disciples would eat only fruit and nuts, basically. Now does that mean Jesus is saying not to eat dairy products? Of course i asked God, because i don’t know anything. But i want to find out and do what is best. And then i understood that the best foods to eat are fruit and seeds of herbs, but also milk and dairy products are not illegal. And of course, in Jesus day they did not have very many refrigerators. And they didn’t have cows, and milk in the fridge, and all that. But we do. And while i will not say that i know anything, but i believe that Jesus did eat milk, or he did at least drink milk when He was on Earth. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. Other than the additives and other contamination that men put into it.

And also, i read about keeping the Sabbath in the Gospel of the HOly Twelve, and Jesus said that in order to be saved, men would have to keep the Sabbath holy. Now i wondered about that too. But i also read about where Jesus tells us that the letter of the law is dead without the spirit. So we have to keep laws in letter AND in spirit. An example Jesus gave was about some people who broke the law out of necessity, a rare occasion. And because of the circumstances, the people were not considered blamefull for breaking the law. Because of that unique situation, it was lawful, although under normal circumstances it would be considered unlawful. And so this helps us to better understand AND follow SCripture. Rather than getting all hung up on the wording, we interpret the letter of the law with the corresponding spirit of the law.

And so, because of keeping the letter and the spirit of the law, we can better understand that Jesus’ Words, for example about eating fruit and seeds of herbs, we don’t have to take that by the letter of the law, but also in the Spirit. And then we can understand dairy products are not listed under the “do not eat” category. But if we have any question at all, then we ask God. And maybe what God tells me might be different for what God tells someone else. But for me, that was my Answer. And also, by the same consideration, of keeping in the Spirit of the law, we can see the same is true about keeping the Sabbath. If we have to go to work at the seven eleven on our Sabbath day, we have to do it. And because we do it out of necessity, we are not held to blame. If some people have to stand duty, and some folks have to go out and help others with ambulances and such, of course, these things would not be considered unlawful, under the Spirit of the law. So we can’t take anything by letter only.

It makes sense to me, and it makes me realize that God has to be sensible. Things have to make sense, and we have to be able to understand things. Everything seems to be really very simple. But somehow, man has made them to be very complicated. So complicated in fact, we cannot seem to understand anything. That’s terrible. Because without knowing anything, all we can do is make wild guesses. And then we’re bound to get it wrong.

I also thought about animals, and how well animals obey. Now, what if God talked to the animals the same way He talks to men. I usually tend to think that animals are somehow programmed so that they cannot sin. But then i wondered, what if animals never sinned and always obeyed everything God said , not because they are incapable of being disobedient, but because they are so well behaved and so obedient that they always obey their Master no matter what. I don’t really know. But i do believe that animals Know God. And i think the animals are just like we are. They look to God for sustenance, for food and drink, for shelter. For compassion, safety of loved ones, security, friendship, peace, family. For understanding. And Justice. And i think they also give Thanks, too, and also i think some of them like to look at the sunsets too.
