Know The Truth & The Truth Shall Make You Free

Know The Truth & The Truth Shall Make You Free

The Lord said to us: “and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free“ (John 8:32). Until one knows the truth, one will not become free.  Pontius Pilate asked The Lord, “What is Truth?”  He did not get an answer from the Lord.  Likewise, many people claim they are searching for the truth, but they never find the Truth, because they are not really looking for it.  Truth is counter-intuitive to all common knowledge or experience; therefore, all people react negatively to Truth at first encounter. The Truth is that many people hate what is different from everything they know, and do not care to know new things. Truth forces life-altering decisions at every turn, and many people don’t want that. Why? The Truth will destroy the current ‘apparently stable’ fictional cartoon-like holographic existence. Any serious encounter with Truth forces a life-changing event; most people can’t and don’t and won’t change! Until one knows Truth, loves the Truth, and becomes Truth, one will not be free.

It won’t be “God” not giving you freedom.  The Love and Order called God, withholds nothing from anyone. It won’t be one’s fellowman not giving one the truth, because everyone within his or her heart and soul can know the truth.  If one does not hunger from within for Truth, does not accept the Truth, does not practice the truth, one will not become Truth, and will not be free.  God cannot be blamed, for all the truth He has learned, He has given to all through love. One’s fellowman cannot be blamed because no one can take the truth that is within one’s being away from another.  If one has failed to recognize one’s truth, failed to realize the Truth, failed to love the Truth, and failed to live by the Truth, no other is to blame.

Sometimes, people feel frustrated. They direct their frustrations against “God”, blaming Love/Order for something She/He did not do.  Many other times, people direct their frustrations toward their fellowman for something their fellowman did or did not do, say or did not say.  When one behaves in this way, one is making excuses for oneself, blaming others instead of looking truthfully within to find those things, which are one’s problems. Until the Truth is recognized within oneself, believed and lived; blaming God cannot help, and one’s problems continue.  God is Love; in Love there is no variableness or change.  Universal Love is not the cause of anyone’s situation, whatever the situation may be—good or bad. Love is not petty, has no interest in petty jealousies, judgment, condemnation or faultfinding. Love Is, and doesn’t care particularly, and has no part in whatever frustration or suffering one is going through due to their ignorance, or lack of Truth.

God is not the cause of any human condition, good or bad; Love has no part in it.  God does nothing to anyone in particular. That is Truth.  His unrevokeable gift to all, Spirits, Angels, Mankind, Animals, Plants, and Rocks is everlasting life, ever-deepening wisdom (knowledge or consciousness), and eternal joy.

The second part of this Truth is that one’s fellowman has no part in one’s problem.  Those two, God and one’s fellowman are free. God is free from all one’s human problems; so is every other human being on this earth, blamed ignorantly for one’s suffering.  All suffering is self-inflicted. That is Truth. A DEAD MAN CANNOT BE KILLED AGAIN, EITHER BY ‘GOD’ OR MAN; DEAD IS DEAD! Knowing that others cannot cause one’s problems; knowing that they have no part in it, sets one free. No matter what one’s situation is, or one’s condition, it is not from God.  Neither is it from one’s fellowman.   This is a Truth that will make one free.

Pontius Pilate said to Jesus, “Why are you not speaking to me? Don’t you know that I have power to crucify you, and have power to release you?” (John 19:10). The Lord opened one eye, looked at him, and said, “Thou could have no power at all against me.”  In plain language, Jesus said to Pilate, you couldn’t do any thing to me! Circumstances, situations, or even the proverbial ‘devil’ has no power over you. No Power.  That is Truth. Nobody has power over another’s sin.  Nobody has power over another’s frustration.  Nobody has power over the wretchedness in one’s life.  The emptiness thereof, the lack of peace in it, nobody has power over it but oneself.  Why blame God?  We cannot blame God anytime, neither our fellowman, nor the devil.  The error is in one’s own self.  That is Truth.

It’s falsehood to think “Oh, because of that person or that condition and this and that I am in this state I am now”; that’s a lie.  “Oh, if not because of this person and that person and this situation and that condition I would have been, I should have been, I could have been.” That is also another lie.  And ye will know the truth and the truth will make you free.  Become free.  But provided one still blames God, one’s fellowman, or the devil, one’s problem continues.  It must surely continue, because those are not the cause of the problems. One’s fellowman is not the problem.  The devil is not to be blamed either.  First, one makes their choice of happiness or suffering, but due to ignorance, suffering is mostly chosen. One utilizes the Universal Power available to all to accomplish one’s ignorant aims, not knowing of the consequences of wrong use; then, when the effect of one’s choice materializes, others are looked to for blame.

Would you be made whole? “Take thy bed and walk” (John 5:1-12)! Would you be made whole?  Do you want to be made whole? Then, let’s get the ‘bed’ of our ignorance and blame, and get going ‘walk’. The bed is one’s own beliefs, blames, doubts, and fears.  As one has believed and lived their lives ‘made their bed’, so one has laid on it.  Now, take this false bed, the ragged, dirty, smelly, bugs-infested bed of yours, and do something about it.  But as long as you lay on the bed and say, “well, Lord I have no man.  There’s no man here for when the water is stirred, nobody can carry me and put me in the well.” Say, Oh really! Are you blaming and finding faults?  Do you want to be made whole?  But no Lord, before I can get there, other people jump in. Are you still making excuses and blaming other people? Oh, but would thou be made whole?  You need to know the truth!  It has nothing to do with the water.  It has nothing to do with the well.  It has nothing to do with the other people near the well.  It’s you and your beliefs; you and your bed.

Now, take that bed with you and walk, if you want to be made whole.  But if you enjoy the company of the people and the story, you enjoy the miracles of angels coming down to dance in the water at certain time of the day but it’s not a specific time, and you like to blame people for not helping, and blame them for things you did not have because you were poor.  Oh, you know if not for this my condition, ill health, my boss, your partner, the kids, I would be fine. You go around believing that people these days are very wicked. It’s the ‘bad economy’. No it’s Obama, he’s an Alien, he has no Hawaiian Birth Certificate. But would you be made whole?  Do you want to be whole? Excuses cannot help. We’re not talking about things or other people; believing these things did not help the crippled for 38 years. He was at the well.  All the stories, the Angels, and the people did not help.  He was still there on his bed thinking that it was other people’s fault; he was waiting for a miracle.

Do you want to be made whole?  Then, take your bed and walk! Ye shall know the Truth. It’s in your hand.  It’s in your power.  It’s in you.  It’s you!  You’re the problem.  You are your problem, you.  But you will look and blame this person. You will look and condemn that person.  You will look and find fault with this person. You will look, and look, and look. As long as you are looking outside, you will remain outside life. You will not experience light or see the kingdom of peace.  You will be outside with the dogs and whores and the slanders and the murderers and the drunkards (Revelation 21:8).  Do you want to be made whole?  Only you can answer that question.

In the Bible book of Psalm 34, we encounter helpful Truth. “I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.”

It’s not good for one to be upset with God or hate the Lord from one’s heart.  Whenever there are circumstances in one’s life for which God is blamed, it is not possible for one to love the Lord.  When one blames one’s fellowman for something that happened in one’s life or did not happen, it is not possible for one to love the Lord; because even though one is not saying it, one’s mind is saying, “But if the Lord was there, why didn’t He prevent this thing from happening to me?” So, this state of life or mindset stops one completely from making spiritual progress, because hatred separates one from happiness.

Hate, anger, faultfinding, condemnation, and accusation separates one from one’s object of love; whoever or whatever that object is. Separation is wickedness.  If there is hate, there will not be freedom of communion or expression. Then, forever, one will be a babbling fool around others, because one’s mouth will always be saying things the heart know is not true. As one’s mind is speaking, one’s heart is against what one’s mouth is speaking.  And every time one opens their mouth, they feel little, because they are not in truth. Therefore it is not good to have anger in the heart.

You cannot blame somebody or something, and not hate God. You wonder why God and Angels do not come near.  They cannot come near you because you hate.  You wonder why other people avoid you, because they know you hate.  In Truth, like attracts like. It’s not like a magnet where opposites attract. But in the True Law, hate and love repel each other.

So when you harbor hate and anger and faultfinding and condemnation, it doesn’t matter if it’s against God, another person or the devil, you repel Love.  When this condition exists in one, one is against Love. Then one cannot approach God.  That’s why people can claim they serve God; sleep in the church, mosque or temple, year after year, but no improvement in character or behavior. They have set a barrier between them and Love, between them and spiritual growth and happiness.

So, forever, one will not to make progress, because the truth is not recognized.  The truth is that one is a bumbling fool.  All of one’s long hours of praying, meditation, and fasting, and long study will be fruitless, because one really hates God.  So one can’t really enter into happiness, which is the fruit of Loving All.

Say I will bless the Lord at all times.  His praise shall continually be in my mouth.  My soul shall make her boast in the Lord.  The humble shall hear thereof and be glad.  Oh magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name together.

Genuine worship of God, the true heart-felt worship of God cannot be possible with one holding unto resentment and anger.  You see, that’s why Jesus taught if one goes to the altar and remembers that one has anything against their brother; that is, there’s some friction with someone, one should stop. He said, first of all don’t go to the altar, STOP!  Go and reconcile with the person first because you’re wasting your time to be at the altar with gifts for God, because Love will not accept that offering from your hand. You will not see God. Cain tried it; God did not accept that false worship then (Genesis 4:7).

So many people are struggling, wanting to be closer to God, but they are blinded to the Truth, which says, “in as much as you have not done it to one of the least of my brethren, you have not done it to me” (Matthew 25:45).  Therefore, it is impossible for you to come to God as long as you’re holding others in unforgiveness, in condemnation, in faultfinding, in hatred, in abuse, in accusation, in isolation, or in whatever way you separate from them, you displease God.  Love will not embrace you.  Also, the Bible says, “If you have not loved and served your fellowman whom you have seen, how will you love and serve God who you do not see?”  God watches all to see how they love, care for, forgive, their so-called worst enemy.  Remember: in Truth, there are no enemies.  WE ARE ALL ONE. That is Truth.

Many people hate others, but smile on their faces everyday. That’s hypocrisy; that’s murder!  Something may upset you about something and it’s bothering your mind, but you’re bearing it in mind, yet you’re laughing.  How cruel, how cold-blooded; why do you do this?  Say something, throw something, file a law suit; get it out of your chest. Let others know. When you calm down, forgive! At least you’re being honest. But if you hold grudge and anger, and still laugh with and talk to the person you hate, you are the devil. When you hold offenses inside, and go day by day pretending that all is well; then you are unfair. Why does your spirit not condemn you?  How can you be doing that year after year? So, if this is your situation, you will not see Love.  You will not make spiritual progress.  You will be frustrated all the days of your life.  At the end of your life you enter into darkness because that path does not lead to the Brightness of Love.

I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

When one sets up this type of life, life of unforgiveness and hatred, fears will rule one’s days and nights.  Everyday one will be calling the name of God in vain.  When one opens one’s mouth to call up God, Love will condemn them. One’s heart hates. Therefore, the love of God cannot be found therein.  As the love of God is not found in one, then, it’s a waste of time.

They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.  This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

Why? Because the poor humble man loves, the humble have put to practice the Truth that God is for all.  Let us all let God go. Let’s free God from our collective hatred and anger. Let’s free all men.  Let’s free even Satan and the devil.  Let all be free.  This way we might find freedom!

The angel of the LORD encamps round about them that fear him, and delivers them.

Every human being is guided by Angels of God, at least two according to the Qur’an.  They guide us by day and guard us by night. They are equipped by God to ensure our safety.  This is a gift of the Almighty God to us all.  But when we reject Love, then the presence of the ministering spirits is withdrawn.  As one grows in Love, one will feel the presence of these messengers of God.  One will recognize their faces, know their names, talk to them, and they talk to you, by God’s permission.  Then, it will not be like fairy tale, because it’s not fairy tale.  It’s truth. It’s a living Truth. It’s something that can be realized.

But when we go contrary to the will of God, then the angels of the presence is withdrawn from us.  And we become naked, subject to be blown away by any wind that blows around.  Then we miss God.  No good thing has He withheld from His servants. He has not withheld any good thing from us.  It is left up to us to struggle against ourselves.  All that hinders us from God is within our hearts.  It’s not from outside.  It’s not from what somebody said or what somebody did or what somebody didn’t do or what somebody didn’t say; none of those.  Everything that hinders one from God is in oneself; caused by one, enjoyed by one, protected by one, defended by one, believed by one, that is one’s bed. The bed also includes one’s attitude, and one’s behavior, and all the things one love: the body, the food, the sleep, the sex, the intellect, the companionship, the five senses, etc. We love these nonessentials more than God. We love them more than Spirit. That is Truth.

God is Spirit. We don’t like the essence of spirit, that’s why we don’t love.  We hate the substantials of spirit and love fleeting unreal matter stuff.  We love our bed more than our fellowman, that’s why we attack them. We love our bed more than the angels of God, that’s why they run away from us.  If you would hear the truth, if you would assimilate the truth, if you would work with the truth, the truth will make you free from inside; because the bed is the jail you have made for yourself.  Why are you not the best you can be?  Why are you not happy? It is because the government didn’t give you the opportunity. The neighbors didn’t allow you; they were making too much trouble.  No it’s the parents, the wife, the children; it has to be something, always something, someone, or some situation.

Know of a truth that all that bothers you have arisen from your flipped heart, and that if you do not turn the heart around; the problems will remain there forever (Matthew 15:18-20). The Lord said,  “if ye from your hearts forgive not one every one his brother their trespasses, neither will your Heavenly Father forgive you” (Matthew 6:15; 18:35). That is Truth. Now, go on, enjoy your quarrels, anger, bitterness, faultfinding, and let’s see how God will love you. Go on, complain about your brother or sister, be angry that they didn’t do something or say something, or didn’t answer your call. Know from now that this life-stance will not yield any dividends to you. Know that the Host of Righteousness must surely run far away from you.  And know that sorrow and agony will fill your future days and nights, and that you will never see the face of God.  Know also that you can turn this situation around anytime by forgiving and loving all.  You can take your bed and walk!

Whenever you like, you can become friends with God by loving all.  You can become free.  You must work hard uncovering your faults; you must also condemn your faults.  You must find the faults in yourself.  You must remove those faults.  You must speak openly about your hypocrisy. You must change.  If you do not change, the evil in you will kill you. The poisons you have stored in your heart will crush your happiness forever.

O taste and see that the LORD is good.

When the burdens have dropped from your shoulders.  When the heaviness and bitterness has left.  When the judgment and condemnation and shame have left you, you will sing for joy.  That joy is available now, but you cannot access that joy now because you are blocking it by hate. You have been killing your heart, closing it up.  You’ve been plugging the well with junk; “top kill.”  You’ve been killing the well of joy from the top with junk.  You’ve been stuffing junk down the well.  You’ve been killing your joy.

The lines on your forehead say so already.  The mouth is wrinkled.  The face, the forehead has furrows.  Are you shriveling?  Is your heart tied into a knot?  No joy.  There’s no spontaneous music or song in the heart.  There’s no genuine laughter in the heart.  How can you laugh when you have so many burdens?  You’ve never laughed heartily in your life.  The burden is heavy!  What more hell do you think you’re going to get into?   When you die you have the same heart you have now.  So that heart is the hell.  All one’s fears will descend with one.  All one’s hate, one’s quarrels, and one’s enemies, the people, the devil, will all descend with one, and become one’s nightmares.  That is Truth.

The nightmares will become so many demons and jinn’s. They will begin to chase one even before they die.  The unforgiveness will begin to hunt and terrorize you.  In the afternoon they will fly around with wings. At night they will have fire in their eyes. You won’t sleep well day or night. Know that all has come from your heart, your own bed.  Your heart will begin to chase you around because you have refused to let the light and life of love emanate through your heart from its source, God, the ONE ONLY LIFE OF ALL.

O fear the LORD, ye his saints.

See it’s only those who have surrendered themselves to the Almighty God, the ones that are called saints that fear Him.  These are the ones who can fear God.  Fearing God doesn’t mean to be afraid of God. This is Bible speak.  To fear God means to love Him with all one’s heart, with all one’s soul, with one’s entire mind.  A cracked, cramped, crooked heart cannot do that.  A cracked heart is not pure.  A heart filled with spikes and nails, broken glasses and razor wires, and all other things that hurt others. God cannot dwell in such dangerous place.  Such a heart is very dangerous to Love.  God cannot come into such a dangerous place; that heart will be very hurtful.  It’s filled with hate.  It’s filled with spite.  It’s filled with jealousy.  All these things are hurtful to God. So God cannot stand to be in such a place.

The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

God is Pure Goodness.  God is nothing material, earthy, or physical.  God is Spirit.  God is Beauty, the Intangible Supply.  Pure Joy. Sound sleep without anxiety, a life without fears, a life without apprehension; you don’t need to be looking over your shoulder—the Angels are there!  Why? The peace of God that passes all human knowledge and understanding will abide with you. Try this life, prove it for yourself; if you are sincere you will prove that loving is Godliness.  Try it, and prove if this is Truth. Remember the crippled man by the well, what did Jesus really do to him? Nothing! All The Lord said to him was, “Take Thy Bed and Walk.” Beat it! Get going.

Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

Everyday we should fear the Lord, by loving Him.  We don’t see Him yet, but we see our fellowman; so let’s love God by loving our fellowman, all people—good and bad (Matthew 5:43-48). The greatest thing one can gain from their earth-journey is the love of all.  Love all so as to win the love of God.  The day you win the love of God will be a joyous day.  Nothing will change in your outer life.  If you’re broke, you will still be broke.  If your tooth hurts, it will still hurt.  Everything will remain the same on the outside.  But whenever you close your eyes or mind, and withdraw from the drama of this realm, and enter into other realms, then you will see the beauty of the Lord in full force.

The universe will cleave to make way for you.  Everywhere in the universe you will be recognized as a friend of God.  Help will come in every situation.  The universe will take care of you in a beautiful way.  This world lacks Love. Therefore, you will suffer in this world.  This world will repel your love and will seek to kill it.  But whenever you get a little rest, and are not in this world, then you will enjoy the company of those who are of the world of Light.  Then you will be happy. There’s nothing of this world you’re pursuing now that can give you happiness.  There’s no happiness in anything or activity of this world.  Remember: you can’t enter the other world if you have a crooked heart, or a swampy heart.  You must first cleanse your heart.  Then, your upturned heart will become the gate into the other world.  That is Truth.

You must become a kind person, a forgiving person.  How many times, five times, seven times, or seventy times seventy? There’s no limit.  You must be good.  You must be like God, loving all.  You must have God’s gracious qualities, His 10,000 benevolent qualities.  Not with mouth, but with your life’s actions.  The ant next to you will know it.  The birds will know it. The grass will know it. The sand will know it. The tree will know it.  The universe will know it.  It will become the new loving you.  And that’s the source of your joy; even though your tooth may be aching, that will not kill the joy.  You will be a kind, sweet person.  You will be gentle to all creatures, moving and not moving.  You will be kind to all.  You will love all.  You will be filled with His gracious qualities.  You will become One with Him. That is truth.

What man is he that desires life, and loves many days, that he may see good with His life?  Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.  Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

Shut up! To achieve anything, you must hold your peace.  But you don’t care.  You like your words.  You enjoy your quarrels.  You enjoy your pride.  You enjoy hate.  Then how can you see God?  What difference will it make?  Be quiet. Look for harmony in all things. Practice what has been said already.

The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

When the Lord draws near to you, He’ll be watching you.  He will be listening to your heart.  He will know your needs.  Jesus said, ”Your Father knows what things ye have need of before you ask Him.” How does He know?  He has been with you all the time, listening and hearing.  He knows your true needs; a good father will not wait for his child to be reduced to begging before helping. He knows you have need of His loving spirit.  As his friend, He will be near all the time.  He will speak to you.  He will plant His words in you. He’ll guide, direct, protect, and defend you.  He will embrace you.  He Loves You. That is Truth. He has forgiven you everything already; all you have to do is forgive all others, ALL.

The face of the LORD is against them that do evil. To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

When you’re bent on the selfish evil ways, hating and hurting all others, then God will turn his face away from you.  He won’t be looking at you.  He will turn away his face from you.  If you hold on to hate you will disappear in eternal cold and darkness. Love is light and warmth. Hate is dark and cold. If one holds unto selfishness and unforgiveness, they will disappear forever from Love.

The righteous cry, and the LORD hear, and deliver them out of all their troubles.

God has not said you won’t have earthly problems.  He didn’t tell you, you would have money to pay bills.  He didn’t say you would become the President. God promises nothing of this earth! I’m not talking about the religious material prosperity nonsense here. You should care for nothing of this world.  You can die poor on the streets of your city, it should not matter; but you will die smiling with joy in your heart because you have the Lord.  Our cry is to be delivered from the hate, lust, sensuality, materiality, and mortality in our bodies and hearts. In this struggle, Christ is our Only Help. That is truth. See, this Earth and all its tangibles will fade and return back to pure energy, one day.  Those who are delivered from enslavement to form will become joyous, conscious, ever-living Children of Light, Eternal co-workers with The Omniscience, in Whom We Trust.

The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart and saves such as be of a contrite heart;

If you fess up to your shortcomings, the so-called sins, if you will acknowledge that the evils are in your heart, that’s half the battle.  The other half is to ask God, with a broken contrite heart, to help! That is all that is needed. That is Truth. The Lord will help. The Lord is near unto them that are of a broken heart; but no one wants to break their own heart so God can look in.  We like to hide our warfare’s, our divisions, our hates, and prejudices.  Our wicked hearts are our Kingdoms.  We are the Pharaoh’s of our kingdom.   We like enslaving and torturing others; using wicked measures, judging, condemning, and killing the helpless. God says to us as he said to Pharaoh, “Let my people go”!  We turned our hearts into wicked prisons where we practice dictatorships; so, we cannot allow God to come near to see what we’re doing.

A repentant heart is a faithful heart, a heart with integrity. Not a flimsy, whimsy, one step forward ten steps backwards kind of heart.  How can one serve God like that?  How do you like a person who is one word here, and another word there; do you trust that person? How do you like that person? Know that it is the same thing with God. Can God trust you?  Is your character good?  Has God seen you making progress?  Do you make God happy?  Can you make the angels of God around you happy?  Are you changing and becoming more loving so that they can go daily and tell God, “Father we are surprised.”  Lord, this man or this woman, it’s unbelievable, we see positive change Lord, hurray!  What report are they going to make?  Everyday they go to God, God says how did he do?  Ha-ha-ha Father, the Angels reply, “you know all things, what should we say to you?” The Father says, don’t worry my children, there’s still hope.

Until we die, there’s hope. Though we have wasted many summers, many years, many incarnations, but there is still hope. Everyday, the word of God pours upon all like rain, like the rays of our Sun, but none enters into the heart.  It’s like rain on the back of a dock, or sunlight on a dead body, no effect.  The unloving does not hear the voice of God because in their mind, they know everything already.  They are behaving right; they are like Angels of heaven already.  There’s nothing to change.  All the faults belong to others.  They’re perfect.  They’re good.  Their religion promises them a heaven on someone’s cross or seventy-two virgins if they blow themselves and others up. What do the ladies get? That’s a Lie. God is LOVE. That is Truth.

The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart and saves such people that have a contrite spirit;

The steadfast in spirit are those that love truth.  Are you one with a broken heart?  Is your spirit contrite?  Do you have these two qualities?  Can God save you?  If you don’t have these two qualities you cannot be saved.  That is Truth.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivers him out of them all.

God is going to help you out of every single one of your material problems.  How? He will make you Spirit like Himself.  God, Spirit, has no material problem. Ha, ha. That is Truth.

He keeps all his bones: not one of them is brokenEvil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The LORD redeems the soul of his servants: and none, of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
