When Jesus knew he had a mission to perform and revealed it to his family, they thought he was crazy, even when he performed miracles none had ever seen or heard of before like instantaneous healings, they still couldn't believe.
This is the state humans are in, not just today but even back and beyond the times of Jesus. It is a method to control the people and has always been used.
When someone finds out and realises that the world is full of deception, several things may happen, one is they may feel alone because of what they are finding out, especially when everyone around them still believes the deceptive world’s views they had previously been lead to believe.
They may then feel the need to tell others, which most do, friends and family and more often than not, they will be met with ridicule and told they are crazy, which makes this person feel even more alone and frustration can set in. Nobody likes to have their belief systems questioned it seems, so they resort to ridicule as a way to defend their beliefs and try to shut the person down by ignoring what they say even when proof is provided about a certain deception.
That person may then come to the conclusion that we have all been indoctrinated to believe these worldly lies that are so constantly repeated, just like a hypnotist does to the one being hypnotised, or just like how products are sold, repetition, repetition until they have these products running around in their brains. The hypnotist knows that to hypnotise someone, they need a subject to accept what the hypnotist wants them to believe, if that doesn't happen then they cannot hypnotise with their suggestions. So they need the willing acceptance of the subject or it cannot happen.
Try telling someone they have been lied to when they absolutely believe the lie, you will be met with a wall of defence and disbelief and even be attacked for it.
At school we were told to sit there and listen and do what the teacher told us to do, if we didn't do that, there would be some sort of punishment dished out. We were never taught to critically think and question, some naturally do this though, and they are the ones who do not get indoctrinated so easily if at all. They may go along with it just to keep out of trouble and to get through it, but that's all.
So if we do not want to be taken for fools, we need to question everything and search for truth, as the saying goes "the truth sets you free." the vast majority do not want to be bothered with this and want to believe what they have been taught to be truth, and so the world of deception persists and the people are still lost, because they accepted the lies without even knowing or wanting to know that they were lies designed to control how they think.
Jesus is not coming at the end of the world to save the bible believers and do battle with satan and send the non believers and evil people to eternal hell.
Anyone who teaches or advocates this are severely misled and the effect of this belief is this, they don't take up the battle that is within their souls which is the real battle but in some way think that Jesus will do it for them.
"These teachings of the preacher do great harm to mankind, in that they cause the individual man to believe that I, as the Prince of Peace, will come in mighty power and will destroy evil and all who personify it in one fell swoop, thereby doing the work which only each individual man can and must do."
"The only devils or evil spirits who are trying to influence men to evil thoughts and actions are the spirits of men who still retain all their sins and wickedness, and who are still at work attempting to encourage and enlarge the evil that exists in the hearts of men themselves."
It is apparent from what he says that when individuals have sin and evil removed from their souls, the evil ones have no power over them, but until this happens their suggestions and influence will still plague them in some way or another.
We are not alone in overcoming this evil but we have God The Father and His angels to help us when we ask for help, and we do need to ask because God respects our will and does not force His will onto His children like the evil ones do. Help will come when someone sincerely asks for it.
But for those waiting to be saved and not doing anything about it themselves will be disapointed.
We have to use our will power this is why it was given, if we don't then someone else will use it and they may not have the best interests for that person and use their will against them and in this world that is what usually happens.
Love and Blessings,
Jesus Will Never Come as a "Prince Michael" to Establish His Kingdom
"There is scarcely a greater error in the beliefs of men that retard the development of their souls, than the belief that at some time, Jesus will come in all his glory and power, and take men into his heaven; and this just as they are - in body, soul and spirit.
For a long time this belief has prevented many men from seeking to develop their soul qualities, either as to the natural love, or as to the Divine Love.
As a basis of their faith, such men refer to that saying in the Bible, "that whosoever believes in the Lord Jesus Christ" shall be saved. And many, thinking that they have this belief, are contented therewith.
They believe further that because of that belief, they will be carried into the heavens of Jesus when he comes, even though they may have given up the earth life in the meantime. It is deplorable that men should believe these things, and live and die in this belief which, of course, is wholly intellectual. But such is the fact."
Deplorable says John, yes it is, what's even more deplorable though is when these very same people who believe this false belief judge others and tell them they are going to eternal hell because they do not believe as they do, now that is deplorable.
When I come across these pitiful comments it seems like they are getting a kick out of it too, but do they know that this is just another ploy of the evil ones to split people up and pit them against each other? Do they really know what will happen to themselves when their life ends on earth? There's one thing they do not know and that is God's will and Jesus' teachings even though they believe they do. Is their god of wrath a god at all, or just an evil spirit who deceives? They will surely find that out when their time comes to enter the spirit world, hopefully before so they may repent and be saved by the true God.
I love reading your thoughtful posts, Ian. Because we are seekers of the truth and, of course, have found and believe in the highest truths from God, it's sad and pitiful that there aren't more of us who have the insight to see that all is not well with the world around us. And as we know, since the creation of man - and his lovely soulmate - there has been a plethora of "wrong thinking!"
The latest, of course, is the pandemic hoax of 2020. We see the poor souls who believe that wearing a mask is a good thing. Whereas, me, myself and I would just as soon throw that nuisance in the trash.
What's pretty obvious is who amongst the leaders of the world believe themselves to be dictators? Well, I nominate the current "leader" of the once great golden state where I was born - California in the USA! The man needs to go and, hopefully, the recall petition which I gladly signed will be approved.
In the meantime, I pray for everyone who has lost their businesses, jobs, homes, etc., as this plandemic has caused a bitter stain all over the world.
May we once again enjoy our freedom and may God watch and protect us while we continue to endure needless suffering, disappointment and loss.
"No man can come to the Father's Love except he be born again. This is the great and fundamental Truth which men must learn and believe. For, without this New Birth, men cannot partake of the Divine Essence of God's Love, which, when possessed by man, makes him at-one with the Father. This Love comes to men through the workings of the Holy Spirit, causing It to flow into the heart and soul, and filling it so that all sin tends to make them unhappy. Yet, without this Love within, they will be only natural men and nothing more."
The Bitter Pill.
This is the great deterrent, or one of them that prevents people from opening up their hearts because it can crush people if they do not have the knowledge that goes with it and that knowledge is contained in these messages.
But this is only for a while and when our prayers for Divine Love reach the Father, and it is received into the soul, it will wipe away every tear and hurt and only love and happiness will be possessed by that soul.
Many try to protect themselves from this pain by doing the opposite, that is hate and revengeful thoughts and actions and to do battle with evil, but the only result from this is more evil in the world, and those who choose this way will suffer by their own actions. Even then, they may see the error in their ways and repent and allow the Love of the Father into their souls.
The end does not justify the means, if those means are evil.
