A sermon by an apostle

I would like to dedicate this sermon to Jesus Christ and all of my brothers and sisters.  It is my sincere wish that you enjoy this form of enlightenment.  It is my purpose to bring you closer to your real Higher Power, God.  This book reads like a sermon or as if it should be read aloud to someone.  I do hope you will excuse my use of the english language, but I do my best.  It was through prayer that I was able to bring this sermon to you.  I offer simple solutions to the problems facing Christianity.  Basically we humans are the problem with Christianity, not the religion itself.  It is only through people that religion can work and it is also through people that God works.  God is the Higher Power that works and by being his child you make God work.  I am ever grateful to Jesus Christ for coming into my life.  It is through HIS enlightenment that LOVE has truly touched me.  I hope to give the following words new meaning and life.  It is my purpose to show you the light.  What you do with it is entirely up to you.  Through prayer and meditation I have become enlightened and I feel the power of Love in my temple constantly.  When the power of God is felt for the first time it is, humbling.  I have asked Jesus Christ to take over my life and everything that goes with it, including my problems.  This allowed me to be able to forgive myself and therefore I became able to forgive others for the first time in my life.  Life became so simple for me to understand that I became overwhelmed by my mortality.  Once I had overcome this, I felt God's love and the awakening of Christ in my soul.  For the first time, I had discovered True Love in its most basic form, yet it was so complex that it had to be God.  Jesus Christ had awakened the child in me, that had laid dormant for so many years.  I was like a child that had discovered a treasure and wanted to share it with everyone.  All I can say is, this treasure is available to anyone, including yourself.  You just need to open your spiritual eyes and throw your carnal sunglasses away to find this treasure.

We must Love God as much and more than we Love ourselves, by giving ourselves over to Love or God.  Remember, it is because of God that we even exist.  For without God there would be nothing.  This nothing is called "the dark side."  There is a dark side to Love, we must stop living in the dark and let God's Love be the only light that can bring us out of the darkness.  We can't let satan's darkness be our eternal home.  We need the light to guide us to Jesus Christ.  He will flood satan's darkness with the light of love.  By allowing God to interact with: our bodies, our minds, thoughts and actions, we become one with God. This is a form of Christ consciousness.  You become a living Christ, if your: mind, body, soul, and spirit are pure of heart.  This form of enlightenment is the highest in the Christian religion and is attainable by anyone.  All you basically need are: true faith, hope, trust and true Love for God and Jesus Christ.  By attaining Christ consciousness, you are enabling yourself to do the same things Jesus Christ did and more.  The real key here is faith.  This faith can move mountains, those mountains of hopelessness, despair, guilt, and so on.  We must turn our lives over to Jesus Christ and repent for our sins now!  For tomorrow may be too late. Most peoples' problems revolve around the fact that they refuse to grow up spiritually.  It's because of this that we have poverty, wars, hunger, and a lot more. Ignorance is no longer an is a killer.  It is killing the human race and everything along with it.  So you say, "What can we do about it?"  First of all we must wake up to the fact that we are the problem.  Secondly, we must do something about it by changing our lifestyles, not just for ourselves, but to help others too.  By growing up spiritually, we can rid ourselves of our carnal selves.  Our carnal self is the thing that is suppressing our Higher Self.  When we let our higher (Godly) Self rule, our body becomes a spiritual temple of God and we become a "child of God."  All this can be done in one lifetime.  After attaining the child of God status, we must breathe in the holy breath and exhale all of our bad vibrations.

We must feel the love that our creator has for us that we could not see due to our carnal eyes.  We also could not see this love due to all the hatred, bigotry, and malice that we have built up towards our fellow brothers and sisters.  It is time to change for the better.  Give Jesus Christ a chance to take over your problems and replace them with love.  We should show others a reflection of our Inner God speaking to you through your subconscious.  This is sort of using your being to do God's will.  You may not even know that you are being used to that extent.  It is love's eyes that you must see through, not the eyes of hatred.  Let God rule in every situation.  What about a healing that can occur to you?  How do you make that come about?  Well, before a healing can occur you must not only be at one with Jesus Christ but you must be at one with yourself.  You must be willing to accept God's miracle of healing, with your mind, body and spirit. A healing can occur when the God in you touches the God in another being, this is an outermost feeling of Love.  You must use this Love to cleanse your temple.  For the Holy Spirit doesn't work in the filthy temple (body).  We must learn Love and compassion first, before we can truly help others to be healed of any infirmity.  By reinstating our new our new faith in our higher power, we are affirming our oneness with God.  Then we must establish a new communication with our higher power through Jesus Christ.  In order for us to channel Jesus' spirit through our bodies, we must channel the Holy Spirit's healing energy to heal others.  Of course, we must have pure temples and intentions.  Remember, we must pray to Jesus Christ before, during, and after the healing.  Do not forget that Love, true Love, must exist first, before anything is done towards a healing.  Because God is Love, so are we.  Because God is the answer to all our questions, and Jesus Christ is our teacher, to some extent.  We have become a bunch of children of all ages, giving AGAPE a try like Jesus Christ gives us a try.  When you doubt, you are sinning against yourself and all that you stand for.  By doubting in God you are in turn doubting yourself by limiting your perception of Jesus Christ in your life. Give an explanation of your doubts and you will find your miseries.  Have faith and you will discover God.  When you exude belief, faith, and truth, you release yourself from the fleshy prison that has kept your soul silent for so long.  We must allow God to speak through us with our hearts set on love and not hatred.

We tend to be more receptive when we are staring at love and not hate.  When we give of ourselves to others, we are showing love in action.  When we give unconditional love or Agape, we are giving the same kind of love that God is giving to us.  This is yet another way to Christ consciousness.  Yet when we give in a negative way, we are going against God's will and towards the evil, carnal Satanist way of life.  It seems that doing evil is too easy and that doing good is difficult.  It may seem as if we are putting ourselves into the lion's mouth on purpose.
You live in hell because you choose to live there and those living there have chosen the easy way out. This does not always work out like you think it should. Try not to just see life through carnal eyes but try to see through God's loving eyes and realize that the Kingdom of Heaven you seek, comes from within.
To give of oneself is truly to receive a gift from God. By giving ourselves to others, we in turn are giving what our creator has given us ... LOVE! When we give love to another being we are giving a part of ourselves to that person. So by sharing our God with others, we are giving hope and peace a chance to develop in our various rela-tionships. If we fail to communicate our emo-tions of love, then we are allowing Satan to come to life in our lives and to cause misery for our loved ones. We have to really let go and let God intervene.
So if we can purify our souls of their carnal nature, then we will allow God to speak through us. This will open the communication link between you and God by not allowing the negative thoughts to predominate over our good positive thoughts. We must truly let go and let God handle it, through Jesus Christ, we must give in to our good feelings towards others and stop suppressing God. Let evil be the only thought worthy of suppression, not a lifestyle. When evil is entered as a way of life, good and positive become bad and negative, thus upsetting the balance of the way things are to be in our lives. A way of making this balance work is to repent of your sins and pray that Jesus Christ will accept your repentance and you must never commit that sin again. Try Christianity, there is nothing wrong with the religion of being a Christian - it's just the way people go about living a Christian lifestyle in a carnal body.
Love equals eternity. We have eternal souls; we just don't die and thus cease to exist. Our cycle of life is never-ending. Aside from blaspheming the Holy Spirit, no matter what else we do in this lifetime, we are given a second chance through repentance, if and only if we ask for repentance through Jesus Christ. If a soul refuses to repent, Jesus will release it into hell when it has no further use for its physical body. imagine having a rock for a body for the rest of all time. Instead of having an eternal soul-spirit, you will live in a certain hell forever. This is the price you pay if you choose to play Satan's way.

We are all inherently good to no end but it is the way we are brought up with prejudices and other negative things our parents teach us that destroys any chance that a child may have to bring out their good side.  Remember that children are beings like adults. It's God that will sort them all out in the end. Children feel, hear and repeat what they learn as they grow up. So, if a child is brought up in prejudice, then it will almost always ruin its own children. The key is to love and love God. Just simply allow your Higher Power to come alive in yourself; give the devil his much needed perma-nent rest. The convergence between God and your Body-Soul-Spirit is meant to occur; not only in ourselves but in every living thing It seems like we are all truly children and creatures of God. We must have an awareness of the wrath of God which will occur through Jesus Christ. Since we must go through Jesus to speak to God and have God listen to our prayers. In order to see results, we must pray to Jesus Christ. Re-member, pray for others first, then ask Jesus for HIS help in managing your life. Never give up! The key is love and to love God. Just simply give in to your positive feelings and let God come alive in all your thoughts, words and actions or deeds.
In the living being, there exists a balance of power between God and all other forces in the universe. There must be a full-circle balance between good and evil or positive and negative. This balance is called "LOVE." God is love and basically so are we, it is our job to suppress our evil carnal selves out of existence. We must keep our evil sides in check and not allow the negative to overcome our positives. By maintaining the proper balance, we enable ourselves to become children of God, like Jesus Christ. When you allow God's light of love to enter your temple, then it is time for you to see through God's eyes of love and not through the darkness of hate. By attaining the inner loving peace through our Lord Jesus Christ, we allow a free flowing balance between positive and negative to occur. This is a way of bringing about love in other beings. We act as receptors for negative energy when we become totally positive because unlike attracts and like repels, a basic law of physics. You will become a total being, balanced in every way. This is harmony and love, just another way that God speaks to you.
Jesus Christ is God's representative to us in human form. Jesus is pure and unadulterated love, God's love or Agape. Each one of us holds the seed of love in our hearts; whether we choose to nurture this seed to life or to just let it die is our choice. But what we fail to see is God's choice. God has the choice whether or not He uses it; to let us drift or to plant us in His garden of life to 'Learn to Love.' It is our sole mission on this planet to "Learn to Love" both ourselves and others. After you have erased every evil thought in your mind, you will be on your way to Love. So, we must forget about hatred and move into love's circle. Where Jesus is standing in the middle, giving us a chance to repent and change our ways. We have no other choice but to repent and to change our ways, if we don't want to live out eternity in hell or even survive.
So where do we come from? Why are we here? Well, we are all a part of the body of God. Just as God is a part of our body. Our mission here on earth is to 'Learn to Love' everything and nothing else. Give Jesus Christ your miserable life and He will transform it into what it should be, a child of God. It is through God's existence that we came to be, not the other way around. Why do we question religion? Because it is so hard to understand and it is as individual as the thumbprint we wear. Please allow yourself the right to call yourself a child of God, because you are a child of God.
For the first time we can all feel the ever present Jesus Christ and exactly what He stands for, love. It was Jesus' faith and trust in God that enabled the human race to carry on. By simply agreeing that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, you are enabling yourself to be in the position to be saved. Jesus tried to show and teach love to His disciples but they were not all receptive to such a simple concept as spoken of in parables. Imagine trying to speak to everyone in the world about love. This seems like an impossible task but it is not. Neither is saving the human race. Jesus Christ can save you, if you give Him His chance.
As God gives to us, so must we give of ourselves to those others that are less fortunate. We are fast to ask God to forgive us of our sins, yet we are slow to forgive others of their transgressions against us. Simply, we should forgive and forget. To be the true child of God that we are, we must remember the Golden Rule and abide by it, forever. Remember that if we can't forgive, God can and He will. God wants us to be like Him, so when our inner being and our outer being become one, we will enter upon the Kingdom of God and we will truly see Heaven. This can mean that God has succeeded in bringing Himself out in your temple through the holy light of His love. You must allow God and not Satan to express Himself in all your thoughts, words, and actions. If you should have any discrepancy in your positive thought pattern, ask Jesus to handle it. He will. Have faith because it works, like truth.
 There are people today who will kill or take another life and this is totally against God's way for us. The people who are killing are only killing their higher Selves So why do we suppress our Higher Self? Maybe it has something to do with a simple lack of faith in God or oven a lack of faith in ourselves. Or maybe it's easier to just be carnal by nature. It's too easy to curse someone than it is to forgive them. We really have to forgive ourselves first, before we can forgive others. It is imperative that we direct our prayers to God through Jesus Christ. So remember that when you call God, you can't call direct. You have to use the operator. Who in this case is Jesus Christ. Jesus will lovingly answer all prayers the way they expect to be answered, relaying the sincere ones to God. This, simply put, is the way it works and it does work!
It is by repentance and through Jesus Christ that we may be forgiven of our sins. It is by stupidity and human error that we tend to manage ourselves right out of the religious picture and into the devil's playground or the earth. Our will should be one will, one pulse, God's pulse. Giving someone faith is like giving them freedom to choose between right and wrong, it's all in the freedom. We all have the freedom to choose between God or Satan. Knowing the repercussions of following the wrong path, I feel sometimes that we try the wrong path to just see how it feels and end up in a living hell every time. So we want God to forgive us of our sins, yet we continue to sin six days a week and expect to be blessed on Sunday, then do it all again the following week, and so on. God is smarter than given credit for sometimes, so is Jesus Christ. Look out!
To know your Higher Power, you must first go to the very center of your consciousness and cleanse to purify it with love and faith. Then realize that you are a child of God and are reflecting God's love or Agape toward others. This will cause an inner healing to occur in your: mind, body and spirit. As a cleansed child of God, you will be able to heal others. The world is at your feet already, so don't be pompous. God has given you everything you need, simply by giving you life. It is up to you to decide what life has to offer, not others. Your Higher Power wants what is best for you and sometimes it hurts!
Without God, we are like an unlit candle, useless to mankind. However, to light ourselves with God's love, we become the light that others need to pass safely through the darkness of despair and doubt. It is this doubt that is killing mankind. Basically, it's a simple lack of faith in our Higher Power. There is truly one religion and that is "LOVE." So until we realize this and act on it, we are still going to have: wars, poverty, disease and all of the other things that evil has in store for us. Don't give up, just give in to our Lord Jesus Christ, for He truly is our last hope.
We keep on looking for the Christian way of life, yet it is through ourselves that we must find Christ. Like God, He comes from within. We must purify our temples of all carnal ways and thoughts 'that are keeping us away from Jesus Christ. We must rid our souls of all carnality and replace the blank spots with love. When we eliminate our carnal instincts, we are allowing room for hope, faith and love. It is our destiny to overcome evil with. good by allowing God through Jesus Christ to run our lives. Sort of as a father would direct his children out of harm's way. We must also remember that 'our children are the future if there is a future. So we really must teach our children well in order to prepare them for their future. We must remember that God wants peace on earth and Jesus Christ is going to make it happen through us and our actions. Try to understand that when we hurt another person, we are in turn hurting a part of God. It is our fault that the world is in such a mess, not God. Where there is a positive, there is a negative, or good versus evil. We are the ones that are bringing out this evil and we also are responsible for the good. It's too bad that most people choose to do evil, mainly because carnality is easier to attain than true love. Evil tends to please our carnal desires and satanist attitude, giving God not much of a chance in this battle. So in other words, a great deal of us have become an integral part of the body of the anti-Christ. In other words, you have become a part of Satan's spawn; who are destroying everything in their path, including the path. So despite being out numbered by the opposition, Jesus Christ and His mighty angels will prevail. Although the anti-Christ is strong, we who are with God will have the last say. Please do not worry about anything as long as you have true faith, you will succeed in God's plan.
I hope people will realize the lesson of Learning to love starts with the self. As soon as you feel God's loving light inside you and you feel the warmth of His love go through your body, then you become filled with the Holy Spirit and realize that you have experienced a bodily filling by the Holy Breath. In essence, you have been released from your 'carnal cocoon' and have become a butterfly of love. This pleases our Father very much, to see His child become a member of the family. So by shining the light of love into our hearts, Jesus Christ has a place to dwell. Isn't it about time God and love ruled your Life? Jesus Christ has all the answers, so we must pray to Him for help. Subconsciously, we already have all the answers we need but we want more. When you find the Christ that dwells within your temple, you will have all the answers you need and not only will you see the light, you will be the light. So, by letting love rule your life, you are enabling God to do the same. Try giving yourself peace of mind for a change, by letting God into your life to bring about the loving change that is necessary to bring your carnal self to its spiritual knees, so to speak. You must give God a chance to teach us the lesson of learning to love, through Jesus Christ.
Remember, the hardest lesson that we have to learn is to learn to love. By simply learning that it is God's love that overcomes all evils and hatred. The lesson of love is so simple that a child could explain. One child of God tried to explain it and He was put to death on a cross. Jesus Christ tried to show us that His Father's love for His children was unconditional. God wants His children to follow and live by the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule. These are the conditions we have to have met in order to live in Heaven on earth. Otherwise we are living in hell. Try to remember that love is God, Jesus Christ is a manifestation of this love and we are all its children. By allowing this love to enter our temples, we are awakening the God in our temples and we are allowing ourselves to be whole, for the first time.
So by sharing and giving this Agape to others, we are enabling God to interpret and share with His! Giving to others is one of the main reasons that we are here, by giving to God what Pie has given to us, we are bringing about love full circle. We can see that it is primary to our survival as Christians to show God's love through all of our thoughts, words and deeds. You must also realize that there is truly only one God, the same God that gave you life.
Try praying to Jesus Christ, He will show you God in action Remember to be careful what you pray for, you may get it. We are supposed to for give those who have transgressed against us, not condemn them. It is karma that will even things up eventually, not you Simply try to turn your problems over to the Lord, and allow God to interact. Soon your problems will disappear and you will be able to show others, God's love. Truth is the most powerful concept on this earth and the truth is God loves you and always will.
If you can allow God to enter your body through your soul, and by letting Jesus Christ control your consciousness, you will discover the Kingdom of the Soul. This first Heaven comes from within and is a form of consciousness. All levels of consciousness are attainable and God is within reach. Just reach out with loving hands to pick up a baby sometime, you will see what it means to touch a brother or sister for the first time. It is love. This is when you will feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in your bodies and love in your hearts for others.
We must learn to give what God has given us, that is love. It is our purpose to love and be loved, not to hate or be hated. Just as the Golden Rule is put as simply as God could put it, we are only children and see it as just another rule. We are not all infants and can perceive what is right and what is wrong. Isn't it time we grow up and face all our sins and ourselves?
You have to be baptized and repent of your sins and not sin again, before you can be called a Christian. It is time to repent now and receive Jesus Christ as your savior, even you non Christians. It's time to be born again and live a full loving life in God. Remember that the only sin that is unforgivable in Heaven and on earth is to blaspheme the Holy Spirit, so don't. Now this is not too much to ask is it? God wants us to realize that He is here to stay, we aren't. So, show your faith and trust in God by simply living a Christian life with Jesus Christ. Jesus is our Lord and Savior, not Satan. Why is it so hard for us to achieve love? Probably because of the diversity of the world's religions and the fact that there are billions of beings on this earth. All have different viewpoints on love and how to attain it. Jesus Christ knows how to attain love and perfection in life; all you have to do is pray and ask Him.
Jesus Christ does have all the answers and you can too if you can figure out how to create a balance in nature and an inner harmony among the earth's inhabitants. He has and is willing to share it with anyone anytime through prayer and meditation, It's time for us to tap into Christ's energy and be able to let a little light into the dark side and a little darkness into the light, or a shadow. We are mere shadows of the child that dwells within us, because we are only a reflection of God's light. By allowing ourselves to become the light, we are enabling ourselves to also become a child of God and we have awakened the Christ consciousness in our soul spirit. When we attain Christ consciousness, we have succeeded in gaining our position in the childhood of God the Father. By reaching the status of God the child, we have defeated Satan and all that he stands for, on earth as it is in Heaven. If there are any questions, try asking Jesus Christ in prayer for the answers.
The way I see it, love is not just a word, it is a feeling for someone or something that is so great, it can't be described by words. Our love should be like God's love, unconditional. This overwhelming feeling of love is called Agape, or the love that God has for us, His children. It's too bad we suppress this love with: anger, hatred, jealousy and all the rest. Pray daily to Jesus Christ and ask him to show you His love. Having true faith in yourself and God, you can enable yourself and others to light their own spiritual candles with the light of God's love from the heart of Jesus Christ. Jesus wants to show us that true love comes from God, not from being carnal. It is God the Father's love that not only allows us to function but also allows us to love one another. This is basic and very necessary for our survival on this planet. The Father knows what is best for His children, the human race. Remember, to give someone love from the heart is to give from the heart of God. So try not to be such a taker and give what was given to you, love.
 For those of you who may not have any problems with love but do have a problem believing in a Higher Power you have my sympathy. But if there is no God, then how do you explain your existence? Do you think we are truly alone in our existence? No, we arc not the only living spe-cies in this universe You have to at least believe in yourself considering the fact that some Higher Power put you here for a special purpose. Think about it: life itself had to come from somewhere or something or God! It is ignorant not to believe in God. It’s like telling a child that there is no Santa Claus because youcouldn't afford to buy presents. Not only have you lost your children's trust but you have taken the Christmas spirit away too. All I am saying is don't give up on some-thing just because someone tells you that there is no such thing. You must have faith, not only in yourself but in your Higher Power or God and He will show you the way because He loves you and always will.
Being an atheist is like being an orphan. Having lost his parents, the orphan hopes
 wishes and even prays for parents. However, the father and mother never come. When
the orphan grows up, he stops hoping, wishing and praying and he uses his God-given
senses to find his parents. Then the child finally realizes that his Father and Mother were with him all the time as his Heavenly Parents. This is when the orphan grows into a child of God. The time for us to grow up has come. We must realize that we must always have love and we will always have God to be here. Turn your doubt into faith. Let Jesus handle any problem. Remember that we were created by God; God was not created by us. Jesus Christ is living proof of this. He lives in me.
It is us that are chosen by God to exist and to pray to Jesus Christ for the answers. We must turn our wills and our lives and everything else over to Him. You must repent of your sinful carnal ways and never sin again. A full baptism is also necessary to cleanse our temples as well as our souls. We must also accept Jesus Christ as our Redeemer and Savior and Lord, as well as our Brother. You will become a born again Christian who is ready to start a new life with Jesus Christ. Not only will you have a better outlook on life, you will have a better life.
When you light the light that comes from "within with love", then you will begin to
 truly discover that the child comes from within and also at the same time is everywhere.
 With this powerful a force of love, evil has no chance for survival. Because of evil's
 inability to survive in a world of love it will perish. Also we must remember that evil degenerates and good regenerates. Evil will disappear one person at a time, in our time.
How long does it take to realize that the Kingdom of Heaven comes from within and from everywhere else comes temptation? We must not give in to temptation. We must simply give it up. As we release our negativity into the earth and bring forth the positive goodness that comes from the earth, we discover a new type of electricity. This electricity is the lifeline we need to get out of the hell we live in now. This electricity is called love, pure and simple love. Have faith in yourself first, then show your faith in God to God by directing your prayers to Jesus Christ. This can be related to entering the first grade after kindergarten. You have learned the basics and are now ready for the program of learning to love. Try and see it as each and every lifetime is like a day in school. It's sad that it takes us so many lifetimes to learn such a simple little lesson as love. By learning to love, we allow ourselves to graduate from the school of life, to progress on to whatever God has in mind for us. Maybe we should become student-teachers of love and truth; for this is truly what God intended but didn't get. We should be what God wants us to be free.      It is our job to reflect love and what our Higher Power wants us to become His children of love. God wants us to give Him love and the way to give love is through our thoughts, words and actions after you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Try accepting Him as your brother. It works for me and it will work for you. You see, even Jesus is a child of God just like we are except Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God and we are only the children of humanity. Jesus Christ is our King and we are to be His loyal subjects of love.
Try to clear your mind of all thoughts but love and meditate on it. Then try praying to Jesus Christ for the answers to the questions that have been plaguing you for so long. You will find peace of mind when you communicate with Jesus, as a child of God. A Father is not going to punish His child for having made a mistake. God wants us to learn from our mistakes, not be punished because of them. Now Satan wants us to be punished for making errors or doing what is right in the eyes of God. Evil attracts more evil and will degenerate into nothing. However, good will replenish itself with more good and it even attracts evil. So by bringing evil to the side of good, we are defeating Satan and all that he stands for, which is negativity. You see, God or pure love has no room in His life for evil and that is one reason why Satan was cast down upon this earth.
Another one was pride. No one here is better than anyone else. We are all human brothers and sisters who came from the same Heavenly Parents. When you realize that you are no better than anyone else., you may realize bow Satan felt when he was told that he is no better than anyone else and that he is surely no God. Satan felt miserable probably and he decided to make everyone else miserable too by giving them a carnal self to deal with for the duration of their lives. ]t is our job to suppress this carnal self into its other form, spirituality. By doing this, we are allowing our Higher Godly self to take over our prison of the flesh and turn it into a Holy Temple of God; this is our destiny.
Once we remove our carnal self and replace it with our spiritual self, then we be come Children of God by allowing God to be able to come into our lives and experience our senses, we are allowing ourselves to experience Agape and God at the same time. We are giving our living God life and new experiences. This is how it is meant to he, not the way it is but how it will be in the future. You must let go of the negative and replace it with a new beginning with Jesus Christ. You will immediately notice a change in your attitude. This can be also called "Christ Consciousness," or it is the realization that God is not only coming at us from the inside but He comes from everywhere else at the same time. You will see the Kingdom of Heaven from the inside out? your insides out. We must love God all the time, without damning Him or cursing Him, if you have to curse, then curse the devil. I'm sure Satan would appreciate the attention. In essence, we have to clean up our acts in order to bc accepted by Jesus Christ. You must also have an abundance of faith in yourself too because you arc a child of God and you arc very special. Don't forget to love your self because at the same time you are actually loving God.
In order to accept God's love, we must first accept the child that dwells within ourselves. Not only as God's children but as human beings who do not lie and who also do not do what they dis-like (this is sort of a paraphrase of the Golden Rule). We must follow the Golden Rule and it doesn't hurt for us to be enlightened by the words and teachings of Jesus Christ. We are all chil-dren of God. It's too bad that most of us are lost souls. Remember that God loves uncondition-ally and He understands that we haven't grown up yet and that we are all still little children who are also prone to mistakes. Try to understand that there is no room for love in a heart filled with hatred. It's time to repent now and to start loving God while you still can.
We must allow our Higher Power the chance to show us His love through our Lord
Jesus Christ, even if it's just once and once is enough. To try to teach your children about religion is one thing but you must show your children through your thoughts, words and actions that God is the answer to their religious and spiritual problems. To deliver a lost soul to God through Jesus Christ is to save a soul from a certain death. Try to speak as God wants you to speak and not as Satan wants you to speak. Give Jesus Christ a chance to show you the way to God. Don't let the devil show you the way to hell. That is no way to go in life or death. To deliver a lost soul to God is to save that soul from certain death. Do not think that this is an easy task because it isn't easy at all. Try to speak as Jesus spoke and do what He did; by keeping faith in His Father, Jesus survived and so will you. By keeping faith in God, you will receive the gift of love through Jesus Christ. We must allow this gift to be received by us via the Holy Spirit. Remember, the Holy Spirit doesn't feel welcome in a prison of thc flesh. So you must clean up your temple and prepare it for its baptism. You must recognize the Holy Spirit as an overwhelming bodily feeling of love. By becoming one with God through the Holy Spirit, we enable ourselves to manifest God's wishes through our bodies and to all our thoughts, words and actions. God wants us to grow at our own pace and in time we will recognize His love is real.
With love, we can overcome anything that is evil. It seems to me that mankind is bringing forth his own sort of evil, by not doing what is right in God's eyes. There is no other evil other than what is brought on by mankind's refusal to suppress its carnal self. This evil is what we call Satan. The normal being can repress and suppress this negativity to a point of turning this energy into spirituality, chastity and intellectualism. So by suppressing evil and converting it to something that is very useful to our souls and to our very beings, we are defeating the anti-Christ or Satan. Therefore, we must teach our children well enough to make the right decision about the powerlessness of mankind versus the power of love or God. Our children are the future and they will be the ones that make it work, not us. Remember, God will be around forever and we won't unless we pray and repent of our sins. The first thing we need to do is to pray to Jesus Christ and have faith in God and you will be saved and forgiven. We must not let other people's rendition of hell be ours. You must realize that you have been living in the Kingdom of Heaven all along. Try not to just think about the negative side of everything and focus on the light that comes from within to guide others to your child and to guide you through troubled times. Simply be positive all the time and you’ll see that most negative people will be drawn to you and your aura. This is worth giving a try. They want what you have: faith, happiness, truth, love and God through Jesus Christ. The only reason this Is unattainable to those who are evil is because their carnal self rules their Higher Self and they have become totally bad or evil. It takes some will power to overcome the devil. Jesus Christ did and you can too.
Acceptance plays a major role in today's society; no matter what part of the world you are from, you must accept others at face value So let God do His loving work on you and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior because He is Lord and God Incarnate and He won't let you. down. Just stop letting Him down and you will see good positive results. You can gain a Christ consciousness when you realize that what has been previously said is truth and that without faith, hope and truth towards God, we are hopelessly trapped in a living bell, living in a body that's a fleshy prison. Personally, I would rather live in a temple rather than a prison of any kind. We must decide whether or not we want to live with the best or just exist with the worst. When it comes to our lifestyles, we tend to take the easy way out, or evil. Anything that is worthwhile is worth putting out some effort to attain. This is how God feels about us.
It seems to me that a Christian lifestyle is preferred over say a Satanistic one. Why? Because the devil's lifestyle is geared towards death and God's lifestyle is aimed at life and love. Which sounds better to you, life or death? You decide which one will work for you and your family. I'm willing to bet God through Jesus Christ is your answer, not Satan. Wake up and smell the Holy Spirit. She is God's little surprise for us. She is love in action. Remember that if you live love, then there is no room for error. But if you live evil, all you have room for is error. It seems to me that Jesus Christ is the one with all the answers. Simply pray and ask for His help and you will be surprised by the results. Go ahead and give it a try. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. God loves all His children equally. No kidding.  If you live love, there can be no room for error. So stop making the same mistakes over and over again and rediscover God through Jesus Christ. In order for those of you who live on the dark side of life to survive, there must be a glimpse of the light of God. For those who dwell in the light, there is a small reminder of darkness for us to contemplate. This darkness enables us to sleep and feel the coldness of death everyday because sleep is just another form of death. Except we are allowed to awaken to the light everyday and not just live in the darkness with the hope of waking into life. We must be positive all the time and allow God to enter our temples at will, thus enabling our souls to enter into pure love and to the firsthand experience of God's heavenly loving touch. By allowing our souls and bodies to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, we are allowing others to follow in our footsteps. Like children playing follow-the-leader. All that we really have to do in this lifetime is to learn to love and this is a very hard lesson to learn because most of us are not using all our God-given senses and abilities to achieve love.
You can't see love through carnal eyes, it tends to turn up as lust every time. So try to rid your temple of its carnal self by allowing God's light of love to vanquish the darkness of your soul. By doing this, we allow ourselves to be on the neutral (Christ) side, where you are neither darkness nor light but you become both This neutral zone lies between: good and evil, positive and negative, and the darkness and the light, where peace, hope and truth reside. It's the neutral path that leads to God and Jesus Christ. In other words, you become at one with God and the universe as we know them. We need to let our love and faith guide us to God, who has been with us the whole time.
So this is an inner quest first, then the outer part comes naturally. You must experience the inner Kingdom of God first, before you can experience Heaven on Earth. This is not impossible to achieve and neither is having faith in Jesus Christ. We must heal ourselves first, then through Jesus, we make it right with God. It is through prayer and faith in God that we can even overcome Satan and all the evil that he stands for. So we have to overcome evil by letting go of it and grasp God's Agape for us. Aren't you tired of running around in a prison of the flesh? It is difficult if not impossible to accomplish God's good in an evil prison of the flesh. By enabling your soul to make peace with God through Jesus Christ, you have defeated the devil and have won a major battle in the fight for righteousness and love, not evil but love.
Try to see the light that God is emitting to you from the inside. This light is Holy awareness of love and truth. God is trying to guide us through the darkness of our doubts to the light of truth and hope. The truth is most of all mankind is in the dark and is carnal by nature. This is why our earth is so messed up today. We must decide for ourselves whether we want to live in hell or if we can live in the Kingdom of Heaven. God's way is painless, Satan's way is to hell, you decide which is the way you want to go. No one is going to force you to make the right decision. Jesus will guide you to God and His Agape; all you have to do is let Him. Help Jesus Christ and make it easy on Him by simply taking the right path to God. How hard is it to turn your life over to God via Jesus Christ? It must be pretty difficult because the majority of people are not doing it, and have no intention of changing now. It's easy to let go of evil once you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior.  Even Jesus Christ was baptized in the Holy Spirit by John the Baptist so you shouldn't be afraid. Even Jesus Christ was tempted by the devil but Jesus was so pure that even Satan couldn't tempt or kill him. We must draw our strength from Jesus Christ and rid ourselves of the demons belonging to our carnal selves. By giving ourselves another chance with God we can over come anything including Satan. By overcoming our desires for lust and greed, we allow our spiritual side to emerge from its fleshy prison to its new temple.
We all then become students of Agape trying to learn the simple lesson that Jesus Christ tried to teach us, God is love. So why is this such a hard lesson to learn? Because you can't see God's light through carnal sunglasses! Even if you could see light it would be a light of lust and not true love. For the light of time love is a healing, giving light. Lust is the one that burns like hell and only gives you a moment of pleasure and a lifetime of pain it seems like love is the only real way to go because the other way tends to end up in our going through hell for no good reason. We are the ones that put ourselves through the hell that we call everyday life and God is not responsible in any way. God has offered us a chance on life through Jesus Christ. It's too bad that most of us tend to choose the easy way out or evil. As positive attracts negative, God attracts us (the negative ones) with love and hope. We must become positive ourselves and show others the way to the light of love. Therefore we become not only the children of the light of love but we become filled with the warm healing of God through Jesus Christ.
Getting away from evil is simple but staying away from evil is one of the hardest things to achieve, mainly because we are carnal by nature and basically because we are only human. By being prone to make mistakes we set ourselves up for a fall accepting evil as the easy way out and good as an unattainable goal. It seems to me that we should have more confidence in ourselves and others. Try to let Jesus Christ guide you to the path of righteousness and Holy blessings. With Cod as our creator and Jesus Christ as God Incarnate, we have won the battle before it has even begun. Satan does not even stand a chance against TRUE LOVE and Jesus Christ; so don't give the devil the chance to rule your life because he will (rather badly I'd say). So give Jesus Christ a chance to come into your life through prayer and faith in God. This truly works, it just takes a little patience and effort on your part. We should let God's love be our only goal.
Then there is the other side of the story, about God and Satan. There is a coin that has God for heads and the devil for tails, the coin is God the child. You flip the coin and get a fifty percent
chance of love versus lust. In every situation there is an opposite, even with God so you have Satan. You have created an evil opposite to love or God and this is the anti-Christ. So bow do you think the devil feels about never being able to do good? Maybe the devil or our carnal self needs to be forgiven of its sins of thinking it was something it really wasn't and to allow ourselves a chance to forgive and forget. By forgiving we are enabling God to heal us and convert our carnal self to a chaste, spiritual self.
All I'm saying is that God is like a two-sided coin basically, one side positive and one side negative. Satan's existence is dependent on whether we can forgive ourselves or not. If you ask me, I think God forgives Satan and God is an all-forgiving God; this is true love. As God's only begotten Son, Jesus Christ is here to see to His Father's wishes. We have a chance to join the fun and celebrate the awakening we have received by simply reading a sermon Truth speaks for itself; a lie speaks for the devil. So don't lie and don't speak for the devil Speak for the whole child of God that dwells in your soul. Give this being a reason for being loved. All I am trying to say is there are always two sides to every story and we are afraid to expose ourselves to God. It's okay to expose yourself to Satan he gets off to that and probably made you do it in the first place (just kidding). What I am trying to say is God loves you no matter what you believe. He knows that His children must experience all phases of life, no matter how bad or good they are God has given us Jesus Christ, isn't that enough? We have to accept Jesus' love for us because this love is sent from God to us, the Children. So grow up and act like a's fun. Try allowing yourself to be the coin and not just one of the sides. Choose to be a whole being of Christ and not just heads or tails. The choice is up to you, not anyone else. Try praying to Jesus Christ for the answers, they will come to you as thoughts.
Since God is everywhere, the entire earth is covered in love and we are completely covered by God. Since we know that Satan is merely an accumulation of God's negative thoughts and nothing more, then we have discovered a great treasure that must be shared with all. Love is this treasure and we are a manifestation of this love. Giving love to someone who has lost hope like Satan, is merely offering another entity a chance to start over. This is the new beginning that we all sec but few shall find. For no one knows the true power of  mind better than Jesus Christ. It is Jesus who will bring you out of the darkness and into the light, not Satan. The devil will teach you how to: lie, cheat, steal, kill and everything else that is the opposite of good.
You must fight the temptation to do wrong, never give up on God and He will never give up on you. We are all God's children and there are no exceptions. We have to learn that even though life is a tough lesson, religion is even a tougher lesson. The choice is yours. I am here to merely present the facts Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to Learn to Love. God wants us to not only be at peace with ourselves but He wants us to be at peace with Him through love and truth. We will survive the onslaught of evil that is to come.  I am talking about those who believe in Jesus Christ as survivors. The body of the anti-Christ is fat with sinners who deny God. Don't you know that even if you deny God you can't deny Jesus Christ? Because He died for your sins and was resurrected to reestablish God's love for humanity. All I am trying to say is, you need to become aware of your Higher Self and your lower self and decide which self to appease. You can't please both selves at the same time. So try pleasing the right one for a change. Try to please God's Higher Self.  We must develop a balance between our two selves by making our Higher Self aware of the evil that our lower (carnal) self is doing to our body, then we can cope with any situation that we may face. By temporarily removing our sex drives, we allow our bodies to become temples instead of prisons of the flesh. It is understood that our lower (neutralized) self is now geared for spirituality and chastity, not lust and greed. By making a few minor adjustments, we can become a perfect child of God, wanting nothing but love.
This whole sermon is to make you aware of God's purpose in our lives, not just what Satan has done to you and everybody else. We must remember to forgive and forget, before we forget how to forgive. Remember to heal thyself first, then forgive yourself for all your discrepancies against God, before you try to forgive someone for trespassing against you. So by taking all this into consideration then we can visualize God through the eyes of soul and love and not with carnal eyes. Try and visualize true love and you will come close to the beauty of God. Take it one step further and visualize God as the embodiment of everything that exists and that doesn't exist. God is it!
If you suppress negativity to its full extent, then it starts to become neutral and if you get
too positive, then it also turns neutral. By allowing yourself to become neither positive nor negative but neutral, you are allowing yourself to be on the same spiritual plane as Jesus Christ. By putting yourself down to the carnal level of living, you are living with the devil and sinning all the way. Sin is not supposed to be a lifestyle, it's just the easy way out. Anything worthwhile is to be earned as we have to learn to earn God's trust. You see love has no prejudice or bias about who receives it. We just have to remember that love is there for anyone to receive, good or bad. You must share God's love like you share food. Both will sustain you and both will maintain life as we know it now. It is through prayer that we must ask Jesus Christ for the right kind of food we need. He will see that your prayers are sincere and that you really do need help, and you shall receive all the help you need, guaranteed. Your help is just a sincere prayer away to Jesus Christ. So why aren't you praying? Probably because it isn't bedtime yet! No, Iam just kidding. This material is very serious and also has many repercussions to it. I am simply expressing my views on not only Christianity but on a religious whole.
Religion is a body that can't touch itself that is out of touch with itself. We have to realize this and also realize that we are all separate religions because we all think as differently as the finger print on our thumbs. Everyone is, whether they like it or not, a child of God and each one of us has a different viewpoint on love. God planned it this way. He likes variety, so do I and so do you.
Try to mass all religions into one religion and what do you get? A mess. So we must all combine our resources and allow for only one God, that is God the Father. Then we must become aware of the accessibility of Christ consciousness to our beings. Then through prayer we should contact Jesus Christ and allow him to take over our lives and will. This is a first step towards salvation and an awareness that we have never had before. It is through prayer to Jesus Christ that we can rid our bodies of their carnal selves. It is by our faith and love that we are judged by God, not just by mankind.
We have a choice, either we believe and be saved or we don't believe and rot in hell. I'm a believer, a true believer in Christ. Any religion can work as long as you want it to work in your life, you are what makes it work, not others. When you go to church, do you believe you are actually accomplishing something that you couldn't do anywhere? I mean can't you worship God anywhere? We have gotten the idea that we can sin six days a week and be blessed on the Sabbath Day and go sin again. No way man, wake up and realize that Jesus Christ and God know what each and every one of us is doing at any given time. So pray that your life can be changed, then change it for the better. Give yourself a chance, child.
We need to stop giving up on things and put our faith and love into each other and into our Higher Power or God. Jesus will listen and He will act on our prayers as long as He knows they are sincere. Jesus will be sure that our faith is true when He not only sees us obeying the laws but when Lie sees true love in our prayers, thoughts, and actions. Remember that you can salvage your life through repentance and any God-loving deed. We must allow Jesus Christ to guide us to the pathway of love and truth. It is by faith that Jesus Christ did miracles and it was by truth that He was condemned to die on the cross. We must share the knowledge that the truth can kill and that we are all the killers, through our disbelief in Jesus Christ and His Father God. We must change now before it's too late. We have the opportunity to make this world a better place to live but we choose to destroy it, piece by piece. May God have mercy on our poor wretched souls.
It seems to me that we need to stop putting our faith in our pockets and start keeping the faith where it belongs, in our hearts We seem to even doubt ourselves sometimes and this can be dangerous to ourselves and to others. We need to believe in ourselves, God sure does. By allow mg ourselves to be limited by doubt, then we are limiting God because we are God the child. You have to decide if you are capable of loving God as much as He loves you. Can you really doubt the truth, or just believe a bunch of lies? The answer surely is no I can't deny the truth. Jesus spoke truth and love but He was condemned by a bunch of naive people who were not understanding and who were full of doubt. You see, we can look back on the past and see just what Satan has done to us. Seeing this, most people do not have forgiveness on the mind, they have fear and hatred instead. By allowing God to interact here, we can have a chance to learn to think differently and to act accordingly.
Jesus Christ will be sure that our faith is true, when He not only sees us obeying the laws but when He sees true love in our prayers, thoughts and deeds. Hopefully, you will remember that this lifetime is not totally unchangeable; we make it what it is and is to be in the future. Allow Jesus Christ through God to cleanse your sins and to set you on the right pathway to Agape and God.
You see, our Heavenly Father wants us to succeed in our good endeavors, not fail. It just seems to me that we are the ones that truly keep ourselves from succeeding, not God but ourselves. Trusting in God is sort of like trusting your Father for the first time; you know that He has your best interests at heart and you know that He loves you, so reluctantly we give our trust to Him. Knowing very well that the Father will not only show us His love but He will give us the faith and love that we need, anytime that His attention is asked for by His Child. All we really need to do is to pray and ask our Father through Jesus Christ for His loving help. The Lord will come to your side and help you discover truth and love and the answers to all your questions. Don't be one of those who gives up on themselves when the times get rough, be a winner and remove all doubt in yourself and in God. Use the truth as a mighty weapon against Satan because it already is and always has been the most powerful concept in this Universe, next to God that is.
When we talk about soul or the immortal part of our bodies, we are talking to our child of God. By realizing that God is trying to communicate through us, we can start to learn how to listen instead of just acting on impulse all of the time This enables us to be able to advance in the
school of life, instead of stagnating in our own stupidity. It's time for us to grow up and be re-sponsible children of God. Our Lord Jesus Christ is a fair giving Being and He expects us to act like children, no matter what age that we may be. Jesus is willing to give you everything you need to succeed in life; all you have to do is ask for it through prayer. You will receive exactly what you are willing to give to others, not a prayer more. Jesus Christ is our saving grace, not the image of evil that is called the devil. So by letting Jesus Christ take control of our lives, we have removed all room for error in our lives and arc now able to help others in their quest for love and God. We have to share the knowledge we receive from God, in order to allow God to communicate through us to those who have no communication with God. In this case, it is better to give than to receive, as it is in all cases. Try to give God a chance to enlighten you and to bring you to Jesus Christ, He will if you only let Him.
We must never give up on God because the time will come when we realize that God and Jesus Christ are all we have left. We must have a strong faith in God as a child would have faith in his or her parents. When we can put our trust and hope in Jesus Christ we enable ourselves to gain love and lose all remorse. Let Jesus bring you to life in God's Holy name, thus allowing you to bring life to others.
It seems that we must discard our carnal desires and wants and we must allow the child that comes from within to have what it really wants and that is love. The same thing occurs when you give your love to another child. They reciprocate by giving this love back to you and you both feel better about sharing this love with each other. God works the same way. God gives us His love from the very beginning of our existence. It seems that most of the time we have to be told that God loves us, before we can even attempt to give love back to Him. It is this lack of faith that we have that keeps us from the Father and keeps Satan around to corrupt the corruptible human beings. Try to keep the faith; the faith that moves mountains also moves hearts. Let true love be your guide, not your carnal desires.
It seems that people talk a lot about love but they fail when it comes to allowing God through their thoughts, words and deeds, to do right. We instinctively do wrong and hesitantly do right. It's easier to sin than it is to commit a good. So we must follow the law of love. This law of love is universal in its translation and infinite in its application to our lives. In this lifetime we will see the light of love which is God, pass through only Jesus Christ to you. We must not only prepare ourselves but we must teach our children the truth about God and Jesus Christ.
Because our children are the future, we must give them a better world to live in, now. We must educate our children about love and God and not just survival techniques. It seems to me that the poor little children are not being given a fighting chance for not only their inalienable rights as living human beings but their right to grow up without prejudices of any kind. It is prejudice that is killing off the human race. We must forget about racial bias and love one another as brother and sister. No matter what color our skin is or what religion that we claim to belong to, God is the answer. You will discover the truth when you rediscover God through Jesus Christ. Try to work with Jesus Christ and you will see good positive results. If you choose to work with Satan, you will truly discover misery and everything else that is evil and is associated with the devil.
All the fundamentals of Christianity have a purpose and special reason for being. They are to prepare us for the future, where the strong will survive. I mean not only the physically strong but the mentally strong also. We have to start doing what is right in God's eyes and in the eyes of the Lord. We can't just give up, we have to stick it out no matter what Satan has in store for us. We have to allow God to come alive in us in order to have a fighting chance. Through love and truth, we shall overcome Satan, and evil will perish like a bad thought! We can bring Jesus Christ into our lives by kicking Satan out. Let love overcome everything of evil and finally let yourself live in a temple instead of a prison. By cleaning up our acts, we enable God to work on us through Jesus Christ. Try to stop acting like depraved orphans and realize that you have parents, Heavenly ones and they love you more than you will ever realize. You are never alone when your heart is in love with God.
We must let love be our guide through the jungles of evil. Live and let live and let evil defeat itself, not you. All you have to do is to let God into your heart and let Jesus Christ into your life. Soon you will realize that they have been there all along. So don't give up on God; just try to give in to truth and faith. If you are going to give up on something, then give up on Satan or your preoccupation with your lower self. Try looking for the Christ that dwells within, not the devil that lives in your prison of the flesh. Remember we must not allow our carnal selves to tell our Higher Selves what to do. This is wrong. If we do, we are allowing Satan to take over our temples, thereby turning them into prisons of the flesh. Personally, I would rather be a child of God than a prisoner of any kind. Try to forgive the devil because by showing forgiveness to him, you are only showing forgiveness to yourself or a part of yourself. The only way God can forgive Satan is for us to forgive ourselves. This is the way to defeat the anti-Christ and to erase all sins. It is the human race that must change, not God or Jesus Christ. If you can't see to pray to the Lord, try praying to the Christ that dwells inside you. You will see the light. Remember the Golden Rule and let it stand above all other rules and laws. You will soon find your God the child-all you have to do is look in the mirror. So don't forget to pray as if your life depends upon it-it does! It seems that the biggest mistake we make is not forgiving ourselves for just being human. It's time to turn to Jesus Christ for the rest of the answers. God knows we need His help and He will help. All we have to do is learn to help ourselves and others. Christianity is my religion by choice. It can be yours too if you want it. Don't ever give up, and try to say a simple prayer of thanks to Jesus Christ. You can thank me any time; it's time to thank God now, through prayer to Jesus Christ. So don't give up on yourself because God hasn't given up on you and He never will. Jesus Christ will see to it that your prayers are looked after, the right way with love.  All you have to do is have faith.  Not only faith in God but the faith in yourself to pull you through all those bad times. Put your faith in Jesus Christ, He is the one who changes lives and moves them towards love.  We must simply give ourselves to others, in a loving way and allow our thoughts, words and deeds to reflect the God that dwells within us. Give God a chance to speak through the child that dwells within, you will find the answers you seek.  All it really takes is true faith in God and the world is at your feet.  So give up on the devil; he would give up on you in a heartbeat.  Think God and thank God; do this on a regular basis and you will see a change for the better.  I love all my brothers and sisters and children.  This sermon is for all of God's children.
