Previously i had mentioned that Jesus told the wicked generation that there “would be no signs” given to it.

St. John Chapter 4

48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye
will not believe.

I also said that there would be no signs given. But now i have better understanding, I stand corrected, because now i realize that Scripture tells us that there will, in fact, be signs given. The wicked will not be given any signs. But the believers, they will receive signs that confirm Jesus is real, and is alive, and is returning very soon. These signs will confirm any Messages given to us by Jesus. This is how we can know real messages from God versus false prophet messages. Real messages are confirmed with signs.

Acts of the Apostles Chapter 2

16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour
out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters
shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old
men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in
those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth
beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood,
before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name
of the Lord shall be saved.

St. Mark Chapter 16

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the
gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that
believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall
they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it
shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall
recover.
19 ¶ So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received
up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working
with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

St. Mark Chapter 13

29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass,
know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

So there will be signs given to the believers. Because they already believe, these signs are actually the cofirmation of the Word. They are not given signs in order that they might believe, but because they already do believe. As i understand that better now, i also wanted to clear up that understanding. Heavenly Mother said that i may say, if i wish, that i recommend for new Christians, or people who are considering Christianity, to begin reading the New Testament first when they read the Bible. The New Testament is our testament. And so i do recommend if a person wants to sit down and read the Bible through, to start with the New Testament first, and then read the Old Testament. Also, Heavenly Mother said i may also say that i looked into the future, and i saw Eternity.

Before i told everyone that we want to bring forth the fruits of the Spirit.

Galatians Chapter 5

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the
affections and lusts.

But how do we do it? How do we acquire these fruits? We acquire these fruits by bearing our cross, daily. We get up every morning and strap on our cross, just like our shoes, and we bear it every day. No matter how difficult it may be. But, we’re not all alone doing this. God is right with us also daily. And God teaches us everything. God will teach us and guide us.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

We walk with the Holy Spirit, and we commune, we talk back and forth, and God guides us and teaches us all good things. IN fact, if we did not have God abiding with us, it might not be possible for some of us to bear our crosses. But this is Holy Spirit filled living. This is as close to God as we can get, while we are here on Earth. It is how men are designed to live, in harmony with God. Hand in hand. By ourselves, we can do nothing. With God, we can do anything.

I said that when people find themselves in hell, and then they beg for forgiveness, it will be too late for them. Why will it be too late? Why can’t they be forgiven, at that point? The answer is very simple. It’s just like here on Earth. If we get convicted of a crime and get sent to prison, and we start saying “I’ll behave now! I’ll obey the law now, let me out!” they will not let you out. You are serving your sentence for your crime you already committed. They can’t let you out, because you have to serve your sentence. Before i mentioned that the only way to stop some people from sinning is to put them in hell. But actually, if you put some liars in hell, they will start saying Let me out, let me out, i’ll stop lying now! And actually, they are lying while they are still in hell! Because if you let them out, they would start telling lies again! Jesus said that the devil is the father of lying. By extension then, the devil is the father of liars. They are the sons of lies, the sons of liars.

St. John Chapter 8

43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot
hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will
do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the
truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he
speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

God is not the father of lies, nor is He the Father of liars. God teaches His sons and daughters to tell the Truth. So we can see that liars are actually the children of Satan. God hates lies and liars.

Proverbs Chapter 6

16 ¶ These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an
abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in
running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord
among brethren.

We can notice that lying and lies are both mentioned as things that God hates. So we can tell then that people who tell lies are not of God. They are of their father, who is Satan. And that’s why God says all liars are going into the Lake of Fire.

Revelation Chapter 21

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.

Now the sad part is, i guess these folks in hell will eventually stop lying. After a few centuries, when they realize no one is listening to them anymore, they will spend all their time just screaming.

Now when will the end be? It will be when people least expect it.

1 Thessalonians Chapter 5

BUT of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I
write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh
as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction
cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they
shall not escape.

The other day i mentioned about the CAtholic church not teaching any of Jesus’ teachings. The Catholics have strayed away from Jesus teachings and are now teaching heresies and blasphemies and the doctrines of men as their doctrine. I realize, this is what Jesus meant, when he said “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees”. Jesus said to notice how a little leaven leavens the entire loaf. And this is an exact example of how the Catholic church doctrine had a little leaven, and now the leaven fills the entire teachings and doctrines of the Catholic church. The same leaven as the Pharisees! Beware the leaven of the Catholic church!

Jesus is well known for His greeting to everyone, “Peace be unto you”. Previously i mentioned what i thought might be good medicine for PTSD, and now i want to add that i think that meditation might also be good medicine for PTSD. By relaxation and meditation, we may achieve a higher level of relaxation and we may also achieve a higher level of inner peace. Now if we want to have outer peace, we must first have inner peace. By reaching inside us, becoming aware of our very core of our being, which might also be characterized as our “center”, we may be able to calm our inner core, our center, and then achieve outer peace. If we can do this through meditation then it would be worthwhile. We might think of it as “calming our soul”.

I mention about trance and meditation from time to time. What is trance? What is meditation? Years ago i read a website by a doctor, a PHD about trance.edu. The doctor actually studied trancing and it’s effects on people. And the results were healing folks from illnesses, and addictions, and so forth. The doctor was very knowledgeable. I can only remember a small amount, because i read all this back around 1998 or something like that. But i learned a lot about trancing. People may think that must be some kind of weird ritual to go through, but the truth is, everybody trances every day, in some way or another.

Some examples of how people trance are as follows. Example, driving down a road, and watching the yellow lines flash by, and in your mind you are not thinking about driving, you are thinking about something else. You are envisioning somewhere else in your mind, while you are driving down the road. This is a type of trancing. Another example is watching a TV show, you can enter into a trance, where you are thinking of something completely outside of your reality. While listening to music, you may enter into a trance state. Some kinds of music actually help induce a trance state. So trance is very common. People do it every day. Most people do it unknowingly.

The thing about trancing is that it can be used for reinforcing good habits or bad habits. Pathological trance can lead to addictions, to obsessions, to bad habits, and if people are unaware of them, and get caught up in them, it’s unlikely they would ever discover on their own how to end their own pathological trances. Pathological trances are unhealthy trances, and can lead to illness and worse. We can see the dangers of this. If people are unaware, they could be led into trance states by television shows and commercials. But trancing can also be used for good, for relaxing and inner relaxing, and calming down your inner self. This may help healing with PTSD. So if we are going to practice trance and meditation, we want to make sure that it brings forth positive results. If it makes us feel better then we must be doing it right. And becoming aware of bad habits, because rituals are trances, habits that we carry out every day are types of trances, things that are like cycles. Such as drinking alcohol daily, and things such as this.

So i recommend meditation. This is a relaxed state, between being awake and asleep. You can just lie real still. Lie down, sit down, however you feel deeply relaxed and comfortable. Then just close your eyes and relax more and more. That’s it. Think pleasant and healthy thoughts. Think about questions you have. Wonder about things. Or just simply relax. What i like to do also sometimes is to sit cross legged in a rocker recliner type rocker, and listen to music and rock. It’s very trancelike, and you can trance that way too. I no longer smoke cigarettes, but for trancing i might recommend marijuana, and also for healing trances and positive energy, include fire of some sort, like a candle, water of some sort, such as a bowl of water, and i also like incense too. This is good for praying for healing. Some people recommend taking shoes off, but i recommend whatever makes you feel most comfortable. It’s not an exact science, trancing, and it may be different for everyone. So i recommend experiment around and see what works for you. The idea being to achieve a higher level of relaxation, or in other words, a lower state of energy. I believe that is what i mean to say. Maybe trance while listening to healing type meditational music or whatever you like best. Mostly people look for answers to their problems outside of themselves, while the answers to everything we seek are actually inside us, not outside. It helps to find the right answers when we start looking in the right places.
