These are universal "non-sectarian" teachings for all humans beings.
It doesn't matter what religion you are ... these teachings will apply.
People relate to manifestations of the Spirit of God, such
as Prophets, writings, visions, and religion; but, what I will give you here, will take you beyond the things
that divide people ... to a glimpse of the sacredness of "life"
There are 2 types of people. Those that walk in "light",
and those who walk in "darkness". Those who are wise, and
those who are ignorant.
4 Types of Knowledge
1. Self Knowledge
Is to understand one's self. To understand life's
sacred purpose. To experience true love, and peace. To know who you are in God's
vision. It's the area of potential, and "assignment".
Much prophetic Spiritual Word to
individuals, is to help them with Self Knowledge.
2. Knowledge of God
As we are His children, He delights to show Himself to us, teach us His
characteristics, and share His important visions with us. It is the area of
protection, Spirit relationship, growth, miraculous ability, and eternal Home.
(this is a personal realization)
3. Knowledge of Others
This is where we become aware of others, and more detached from our selfish ambition.
It's the area of service to God's creatures. As we grow in
the first 2 Types of Knowledge, our service is more representative of the Spirit of God,
and we can say like Jesus, "I and the Father are one".
The world is full of it. You only have so much time, here.
And, it is hoped, by all evil, that you will be rendered "ineffective". It will come in many
forms, emotion, spirit, material, and delusion. You must
learn to recognize, and "overcome".
If God owns everything, then, we come into this life
(this Garden of Eden) to work "with things" that belong to God.
If we do that without the anxiety of greed, and attachment, that is good.
One day, we will leave here, ... after having served
in this experience.
Doing one's duty, earning wealth, material enjoyment, and attaining salvation, are the four
noble goals of human life. One who uses duty, earning wealth, and enjoying sensual pleasure,
in a balanced manner without any of the three being harmed by the other two, attains salvation.
A person completely involved in acquiring, and preserving, material wealth and possessions, has no
time, or desire, for Self-realization.
One can attain all four noble goals by devotion to the Lord.
One should first seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness (as duty). Then,
one should earn money and make economic progress, fulfill all noble material and Spiritual desires with the money
earned, and progress towards "salvation"; ... the only noble goal of human birth.
It's the off-balanced clinging to any one of these, that brings anxiety.
The "illuminated ones" who know the Absolute Truth and are in touch with
the Supreme Being, and follow His leading, are the sons and daughters of God. (Romans
ch.8) All are born equal, but can become superior, or
inferior, by the attention given to these principles of Spiritual life.
We must seek to purify our intellect. What is resident
there, is what we have fed it with.
Taking refuge in detachment, ... and relinquishing egotism,
violence, pride, anger, lust, and proprietorship, ... one becomes peaceful,
free from the notion of "I, me, and my", ... and fit for attaining oneness
with the Supreme Spirit.
Learning to hear, and do, and fellowshipping with other Spiritually-minded
people, is of the utmost. We have no time to lose.
This entire process of Spirituality gets started by the spark of grace
that comes as faith, ... and we must be very sensitive to it while it is present.
Many times religion, and socializing, have been nothing more than a subtle distraction
... away from the Spirit. (Thessalonians 5:14-24)
they know You to whom You make Yourself known, the moment
knows You, one becomes one with You"
The knower of the Spirit ... becomes like Spirit.
The Kingdom of God resides in you. (Luke 17:21)
No man, or woman, can enter the Kingdom of God, unless one is born again
(by realizing that one is not this body, but, Spirit
behind the body - Gospel of John 3:3-8)
Whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child, will never go
there. (Mark 10:15) And
to truly understand the Spirit of God, ... is to become one with Him. (Gospel
of John 10:30, and ch.17:20-26)
Everything that we use, or eat, should first be offered to the Lord, the giver of all things,
before we put it to our use.; whether it be food, a new dress, a new car, a new house,
or a new baby. Offering everything to the Lord is the highest form of worship that one has to
learn and practice every day.
Have His name in your heart, and on your lips, and His
work in your hands.
The only suitcase one takes into the next world is labelled "Works".
One cannot take wealth, fame, or material, from here ... to the hereafter.
(Gospel of John 3:19-21, Revelation 20:11-15)
Seek refuge in the Supreme Lord alone ... with loving devotion; and by His
grace you will attain supreme peace ... and the Eternal Abode.
Fix your mind on Me, be devoted to Me, offer service to Me, bow down
to Me, and you shall certainly
reach Me. I promise you, because
you are My creation.
Set aside all meritorious deeds and religious rituals, and just surrender
completely to My will with firm faith and loving devotion.
liberate you from all sins, and the bonds shall be
Both knowledge, and action, are
needed for balanced living.
(1) Do your duty, to the best of your abilities, for Me, without
any selfish motives, and remember Me at all times -- before starting a work,
at the completion of a task, and while inactive.
(2) Practice to look upon all creatures as Myself, in thought,
word, and deed, ... and mentally bow down to them.
(3) Awaken your dormant spiritual destiny, and
"perceive" through the activities of mind, senses, breathing, and emotions.
The power of God is within you at all times, and constantly doing all the work, ... using you as
a mere instrument. (Gospel of John 14:10,12)
You must be God's gardener, carefully tending the garden,
but never becoming attached to what will blossom, what will flower, what will give fruit, ...
or what will wither and die. (Romans 14:8)
One who wants to know Me, the Supreme Person of Godhead,
should only understand that I existed
before Creation, I exist in the
creation, as well as after complete dissolution.

of the "Overcomer"
- Revelation 3:18-22
from Armor of the Prince of Peace (Vol.5) ...
The 7 Powers of Despondency
soul that is free of these finds salvation, and the Christ restoration.
They have been referred to in many of the early writings, (Gospel of John chs.1,3,
Romans chs.6,7,8), and are probably a necessity to look at in order for us to understand "the call"
of the Christ gospel.
These powers that bring the
soul into bondage are: darkness, desire, ignorance, excitement of death, kingdom of the
flesh, foolish wisdom of the flesh, ... and wrathful wisdom.
1. "Darkness" - the opposite is the "light" (Gospel of John chs.1,2)
2. "Desire" - the opposite is contentment, and peace, "harmony
Spirit" (Gospel of John 14:27, and Philippians
3. "Ignorance" - the opposite is "the knowing".
understanding. (Ephesians 1:18, 1
"Excitement of death" - the opposite is "oneness of Spirit"
(desire & fear of loss) Excitement of Spirit
"life". (Gospel of John 5:24, Romans
"Kingdom of the Flesh" - the alternative is the Kingdom of God - the Great Spirit
(Matthew 6:9-13, and Romans 8:12-14)
6. "Foolish wisdom of the flesh" - the alternative is the wisdom of the Spirit.
(Gospel of John 14:16,17, Romans ch.8, 1 Corinthians ch.2)
7. "Wrathful wisdom" - the alternative is wisdom of the Spirit.
1. The slayer of men The Spirit of love,

2. The conqueror of (Ephesians 2:1-8)
land and space
*consider these dead, and overcome, that you might "live".
Most of us have learned to live out our lives out of some, or all of these ways of thinking, depending upon
who we've learned with. We tend to form a "decision making" habit.
For example, a business person may make many of their
decisions out of a 7-3-2 pattern. They may not call #2, desire; they may call it
"aspiring to greatness". But, these carnal bondages linger, just the same;
and it would do that person well to learn to "worship God", instead of self.
For us to learn to make our decisions out of the Word of the
Spirit of God is a radical change. It's a "born again" experience, and means
that we have to get to know Him.
Jesus spoke of this, when he spoke of a person ... seeing "light" in the midst of darkness.
The person is challenged to show an interest in the light, and get to know what is coming out
from God's light. This would obviously expel their ignorance, and they
would gain Spirit understanding.
avoid the light, and love the ignorance, for that is the cloak that covers their ambitious "desire".
What Jesus said, when explaining this, was ...
"This is the condemnation.
Light is come into the world, and men loved
darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes
to the light,
his deeds should be reproved (and he, or she, might have to change)
But, he that does truth, comes to the light, that his deeds may
manifest, ... that they are wrought in God."
- Gospel of John 3:19-21
The first three powers are the ones that the person struggles with
prior to truly turning their life back to God.
When we get past the first three, and enter into relationship with the Spirit
of God, we find the next three replaced with Spirit wisdom, understanding, vision,
prophecy, and many of the conversion powers that we experience, as we abide in fellowship
with Him in the "born again" life.
As we pass # seven, the intercessory ministry of Christ, and the salvation
ministry of the Holy Spirit, open to us through His Spirit of grace, and love. We are
called into this ministry of "light" in this world.
(2 Corinthians 5:17-21, and ch.6)
The "Son of man" is within us.
The "old nature" must be considered dead. Rise up, Son of man, and
... walk in the "light" of God.
*most everyone is working
at overcoming one, or several, of the above powers, and that is good, for we are learning to "rule"
with the power of God's Spirit in us.
**below, are issues that
most religious people have gotten themselves into. In the time that we live in, ... this
will be exposed.
Need Deliverance From
The "tradition of the world" (of man)
3. Willful ignorance
6. Heavenly gain (Lucifer's ambition)
7. Our identity (separate from God)

from "Abiding" (the Gospel
of Light Series) ...
No matter what religion, they will appear somewhat different to us, depending upon the "culture" ... that they exist in.
It is only as we look through the cultural differences, that we can
see the true faith of these individuals.
The seven churches in Revelation chs.2,3
are another close example of how God "knows" His people in the earth, and how each one is in a
different setting: but, He instructs them all to "hear what the Spirit is saying".
Just as God has a special grace and purpose for
different cultures and churches, He also has a special grace, and purpose, for different individuals,
But in all cases, there is one common principle for all, and that is to hear the
"voice" of the Spirit of God.
"Seeing that you have purified your
souls in obeying the truth ... through
the Spirit unto unpretended love
of the brethren, love one another with
a pure heart fervently: being born again, not of seed that passes away,
but of eternal,
by the word of God, which lives,
and abides forever."
- 1 Peter 1:22,23
is not speaking about the Bible, or other scriptural writings. One can have the best "religious
opinions" in the world, and not be born again. (see: Gospel of John 3:1-8)
So now, understanding that there are a variety of callings, in a variety of eras, in a variety of cultures,
I want to introduce you to, first of all, your own soul.
If one can't find healing for their own soul, how can they be
service to the soul of another ? It would be like "the blind leading the blind". (Gospel of Matthew 15:1-20)
Most converts are never introduced to their own soul; but rather, only to their intellectual belief.
Water baptism, that we've heard
of so often, and find in so many religions, is the outward expression of this cleansing, that we are saying
... that we are willing to go through. It's the wholeness of our life, ... towards
the service, and worship, of God. (restoration of the
soul, and regeneration of Spiritual graces)
Now, I'm going to challenge you to learn
your ministry in the mission-field of your soul: and, as we triumph in these areas, we will develop
a power, and authority, that can bring hope to others.
You will learn how to see in the Spirit, work with the Spirit, bring healing to
wounds, set the captive free, and drive out those afflicting spirits.
As you go through your "ministry training", you will come
to recognize ministering angels, and learn obedience ... to the voice of God's Holy Spirit; and your faith will
I am going to give you an insight into
the 7 levels of growth, that will take you down the road ... of your Spiritual salvation.
Spend time with the LORD. Give attention ... to Him.
He will meet you in all of these areas, as you flourish in Him. This could take a lifetime;
but, as you walk this road, you will be of use to Him, and ... you will bear fruit.
After all, it is appointed unto "you" ...
to enjoy His salvation, and to grow into His purposes. Let's
7 Stages of Spiritual Growth
If one is
to minister to his/her own soul, they must first find it, and get to know it.
As you "spend time", a revelation will come, and you will find that you are not alone.
O, yes, ... you will be
tempted by "self-preservation", which wears the gentle robes of hypocrisy; but, the Spirit of
truth will show you a way out. You will now ... learn to walk with Him.
This justice comes from the voice of the Spirit.
You must get to know Him well, and not let "reason", anger, desire, or presumption,
Faith, ... not of books, nor intellect; but, of "Spirit
obedience". Forgiveness must keep the channel open.
Do not, in unbelief, trade what you know ... for easy comfort,
popularity, or arrogance. Faith is your friend, that will not hide any wrong doing, but, will lead you to
be an overcomer. It is the discipline of frenzy: the slowing down to see the "deeper realms"
of the soul. (the Holy Spirit does heal them) The slower, and deeper, we go,
the more "causation" we see.
What if we don't get all the sin, and grief ? That's the point: it's
not us that gets it. This is Spiritual work; the purifying of the soul.
(1 Peter 1;22, Psalms 116, Psalms 106, Gospel of
John 3:5-8,19-21, 1 Corinthians ch.2, Hebrews 19:14, ch.10:16-25, Romans ch.8, and Titus
Jesus, the early apostles, and many other Spiritual people,

and, to the "other person", ... who is not yourself.
Goodness, is what flows to warm the stranger. It's the energy
of love that courageously shows the character of God.
Do not let the tempter ... tempt you. For the eyes of faith will show you
the truth of justice, and you will overcome "self exaltation". It is
Spirit expression. Trust Him for His wisdom.
that pause ... that, just for a moment, wants that "independent" praise.
Obedience to the Spirit of God, and walking in His light, will defeat that unjust foe. Go
on in the light of "His" remembrances. (and, lose the
"fear" of independently having to achieve)
is comfort that we seek for security, help, self-worth, thrill, and heroism. It is the energy
that we think feeds our independent self. But, the "yearning for" this power will destroy;
for we are not to feed our independent self, but, lose it ... in the
courage of the Spirit.
"divine love" is security, help, supreme, and thrilling, full of vision,
life, and faith. And out of this love flows the life for others to bathe in; that, they
too, may learn to be "at one".
Purgatory, sorrow, and grief, are the selfish loves ... that are
They don't see the "great vision" of the Supreme: they see only darkness, and defeat,
and wasted life. The deceitful illusions of this world are more comprehendible than the ever present Spirit
To walk through
this lonely valley of death, and to enter the light of "Life", ... is to
be smeared with the anointing of the realization ... of "the Christ", the Word,
and Oneness of the Supreme: this same Spirit that we have been talking about from
"the beginning". (not Jesus, but the "Spirit of Christ",
Spirit of God's deliverance - Gospel of John 14:16,17, Romans 8:11,14,17, Acts 1:4-8, ch.2:38-40)
"It is good to be zealously affected always in
a good thing, and not only ...
when I am present with you.
My little children, I am travailing (interceding) in birth again, until
be formed in you. (Galatians 4:18,19)
Stand fast therefore, in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free,
and be not entangled again
with the yoke of bondage.
If we live
in the Spirit, let us ... walk in the Spirit." (Galatians 5:1,25)
We are all on this journey, and each
of us will find ourselves at one, or several, of these levels. It's not for
us to look at each other, and judge: but rather, to "hear what the Spirit is saying",
and possibly, in faith, be of use to minister to another.
We are all growing in different ways, ... and at different times: and
as you live out of the Spirit of Truth, the darkness around you, (and even around "those"
around you), will be expelled, and light will shine. (Gospel of Matthew
"He shall see the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his
knowledge shall My righteous servant justify many; for he shall

... Spirit or Written
we have been raised in ... an "informational" type of religion, rather than
the experience of revelation, it is a challenge for us to "express" obedience ...
to the Spirit of God, ... in a way that is ... not just "opinion".
When God speaks to us, it is not just to inform our mind, and draw our applause; ...
but rather, so that we can fulfill ... the "hope of His calling". This is done
through active faith; and, ... obedience is important.
The way we look at "scriptural
writings" ... will change.
We are reconciled to God, ... not to a
book of scriptures.
We are reconciled to God, ... not to Jesus.
Who was Jesus ? He was the
"expression of God's grace and truth". (Gospel of John ch.1)
"eternal expression" of the revelation of God, in Christ, ... is
... what we "live" in, and "abide in".
We live in this "light";

All of our ideas of "human achievement",
or "failure", stop ... at the "desolate sacrifice". (and
The laws of Karma, that say, "we reap what we sow"; no longer
are in effect in the judgment of God's Kingdom.
In our service, we become "dumb"
before God's eternal purpose, that the hope of His callings might be revealed; as
we answer ... only to the "voice" of the Holy Spirit.

the "rebuke". See ... the "obey" for
what it is.
Whenever, in scripture, it is recorded that Jesus "rebuked" anyone, or anything, it comes
to our language from the Greek word "epitimao". In our language,
it is common for us to think that "rebuke" means ... to "scold", ...
or to be "angry with". But , not so, in this application.
- superimpose "upon", even "with direction"
timao' - to fix a valuation upon, to revere, to honor
When Jesus "rebuked", he wasn't "scolding", but rather speaking
"epitimao", ... the revered Word of "intent",
and "direction", upon. (he was speaking "intent" of
The words that he was speaking were not his own; but the "Word"
... of the "Spiritual utterance". (Gospel of John 14:10)
It's nice to hear a word from the LORD, but, we need
to see it as "epitamao", ... the "rebuking" Word of valued intent.
(it's the "word" of creation) This is not a "word" to be judged ... in our "carnal" mind,
with our logic, and senses; but rather, one to be acted upon ... in faith,
... and "obedience".
We are told from the apostle, that "all scripture is
given by the "inspiration" of God"; ... but, for some time now,
we have been instructed by carnal teachers, to hold to the falsehood, ... that "inspiration
of God is given by scripture".
You can't have it both ways. Either, you have intellectual
religion, ... decided upon with "carnal judgment", and operating out of our reasoning,
and senses; or, you have the "light" of the Holy Spirit bearing witness to that
"Word" being revealed ... in our hearts, and minds.
... or, it is carnal.
After all, it is the scriptures of ... the prophets,
... and the apostles, ... that bear witness to this "relationship"
that we have in Christ, ... with the Holy Ghost, and with one another.
