False Hope

Earlier i mentioned about Jesus commanding us not to eat flesh. This is also given to us in commandment by God, Heavenly Father, in GEnesis. So not eating flesh is not a choice really, it is a commandment. Willful disobedience of commandments is direct violation of God’s Law. Those who disobey the commandments are disobedient and will not be among those who enter into Heaven. Whether if you think it is a big sacrifice to not eat meat, it is an abomination to God. It’s not just gross and disgusting, like blood and gut eating zombies, but it requires the shedding of innocent blood. And if God hates hands that shed innocent blood, how do you think God will feel about people who shed innocent blood, then eat it?

I thought about it being like you sent your toddler outside to play, and soon she came back with guts and blood and yucky stuff all over her face because she was outside eating slugs. But God said it’s even worse than that. It’s egregious, because it involves shedding of innocent blood.

Gospel of the Holy Twelve Lection 46

9. Hear O Israel, JOVA, thy God is One; many are My seers, and My prophets. In Me all live and move, and have subsistence.
10. Ye shall not take away the life of any creature for your pleasure, nor for your profit. nor yet torment it.
11. Ye shall not steal the goods of any, nor gather lands and riches to yourselves, beyond your need or use.
12. Ye shall not eat the flesh, nor drink the blood of any slaughtered creature, nor yet any thing which bringeth disorder to your health or senses.
13. Ye shall not make impure marriages, where love and health are not, nor yet corrupt yourselves, or any creature made pure by the Holy.
14. Ye shall not bear false witness against any, nor wilfully deceive any by a lie to hurt them.
15. Ye shall not do unto others, as ye would not that others should do unto you.
16. Ye shall worship One Eternal, the Father-Mother in Heaven, of Whom are all things, and reverence the holy Name.
17. Ye shall revere your fathers and your mothers on earth, whose care is for you, and all the Teachers of Righteousness.
18. Ye shall cherish and protect the weak, and those who are oppressed, and all creatures that suffer wrong.
19. Ye shall work with your hands the things that are good and seemly; so shalt ye eat the fruits Of the earth, and live long in the land.
20. Ye shall purify yourselves daily and rest the Seventh Day from labour, keeping holy the Sabbaths and the Festival of your God.
21. Ye shall do unto others as ye would that others should do unto you.
22. And when the disciples heard these words, they smote upon their breasts, saying: Wherein we have offended. O God forgive us: and may thy wisdom, love and truth within us incline our hearts to love and keen this Holy Law.
23. And Jesus said unto them, My yoke is equal and my burden light, if ye will to bear it, to you it will be easy. Lay no other burden on those that enter into the kingdom, but only these necessary things.
24. This is the new Law unto the Israel of God, and the Law is within, for it is the Law of Love, and it is not new but old. Take heed that ye add nothing to this law, neither take anything from it. Verily I say unto you, they who believe and obey this law shall be saved, and they who know and obey it not, shall be lost.

As we know, Jesus lets us know in Revelation that those who keep His commandments are the only ones who go to Heaven.

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.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and
murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

I wondered about myself, and how would i feel, and what would i do, if i were the one reading this, instead of the one writing it. Because up until a couple years ago i ate meat and i knew no difference. If someone told me it was a sin, i don’t know if i would believe them or not. I’ve lived like everyone else pretty much. I used to hunt, and i killed several deer and rabbits and so forth. But over time, i outgrew killing, and came to dislike it. And gradually i kind of outgrew eating meat, in my older age. Thanks to guidance from my Earth Mother, i gradually quit eating meat altogether a couple years ago. Just because i felt at the time that it was the thing to do. And that’s how She guides me quite often. So i don’t know how i would feel if someone came up and told me this Truth. i hope that i would believe them. Because it is very True, and God would not have showed me this, and Taught me this, if it were otherwise. No, it’s very important for everyone to keep God’s commandments. That’s the only way we can get in to Heaven.

So we would not quit eating meat because it was against the Law, so that we could go to Heaven, because that is not the only thing we need to enter Heaven. But we would quit eating meat because we love God, and we keep all His commandments. That’s how we get into Heaven.

St. John Chapter 8

51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall
never see death.

St. John Chapter 14

15 ¶ If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because
it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he
dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

So it comes down to whether or not people believe in what Jesus said. They will either believe in Jesus, or they won’t believe in Jesus. But those who do believe, they will not just believe, but they will Know Jesus said it. Because His Sheep really do know His Voice.

St. John Chapter 10

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is
able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

St. John Chapter 10

VERILY, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into
the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief
and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he
calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them,
and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they
know not the voice of strangers.

Those folks who do believe in Jesus, they will receive everlasting life in Heaven, just as St. John told us

ST. 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.

Their deeds were evil. They didn’t believe what Jesus said. They were commandment breakers. They didn’t keep the commandments, they broke them instead. And because the broke the commandments without being forgiven and stopping their sins, they perish. So the Kingdom of Heaven isn’t just some great vacation getaway that we can get for a good bargain. But rather, when we learn and understand what Heaven is all about, just like in the story of the Pearl of Great Price, we gladly give up everything we have in this world to achieve Heaven, because we can easily recognize what is the right thing to do, obviously. I can’t understand how people could choose to live their life for this short time, for this world and not for Heaven. People think they want to live happily here on EArth, and thats all they care about. That’s only going to last forty or fifty years. What about the next ten million years that comes after that?

What are people going to do then, for the next ten million years, when they don’t go to Heaven? As Christians, we have hope, nay, we know we are going to inherit Eternal Life in Heaven. But it is our hope, it’s what we strive for everyday. For sinners, is the only hope that they have in life is after they die they hope that nothing will happen to them? It won’t do any good to hope that nothing is going to happen to you after you die. I can already tell you that. Why? Because i Know. It’s all written down for us, and told to us in the Holy Bible. Whether if you believe it, or not. God’s Word is True.

I wish there was something i could say that would make people Know, as i know. I wish i could wave a magic wand, and make people know. I wondered why God doesn’t just wave Her Magic Wand and make everyone believe? Then i realized, it’s because God is separating out those who love Him from those who don’t love Him. God wants to find out who loves Him, and who does not, because only those that love Him inherit Eternal Life.
And that’s how He finds out- Those who keep His commandments, and those who do not.

St. John Chapter 14

15 ¶ If ye love me, keep my commandments.
