My Life Triumph

With God, All Things Are Possible

Before the barriers between God, Jesus and me were removed, I carried the stresses of all those around me, through means of being an “absorber,” or Empath. This is as a result of the traumatic psychological, mental, emotional and physiological experiences I underwent at an early age, which caused this phenomenon.

Because of the issues caused from this, I had unavoidably put up barriers between me and deity, through choices as a child, having experienced major trauma at a very young age. Having suffered these when I was age three, six and seventeen, I was told by the Holy Ghost from God when I was six, that, “You are of utmost importance to my plan and kingdom here on the earth in these last days.”

I then told Him, “But you weren’t there for me! Go ahead and try to do it without me!”

Several things occurred from these indignities. I acquired four major mental illnesses, brain damage, and major insane emotional disturbances and baggage, all in a contorted, disturbing cocktail of difficulty, which compounded, and made life very arduous indeed.

Having these mental illnesses, evil spirits then also had the ability to harass and torture me directly, and they did so. Mental illness itself is difficult, but when evil has such a greater access to a person because of it, and having the emotional baggage and brain damage as well, all of these things twisted in the most horrendous of mixes, this made life very difficult for me. For each deficit played against itself and all the others at the same time, all the time.

This was all started out from the same source, a branch of a satanic cultist covert, in the form of a “family,” in the neighborhood where I grew up.

Because of this, and having been sucked into this “family” through their two boys, with fantasy and toys, and having been emotionally tied in to them because of the ritualistic abuse I suffered at age six, I tried to make friends with the enemy, thinking that in trying to fix them, I could also fix myself.

Not even remembering the abuse until I was at age 21, when my brain was more stabilized on medication, I had still felt that something was wrong, and this cycle of me trying to make myself well by changing them, is one of the reasons these cults abuse children this way in the first place. They know this phenomenon is very real, and it causes their “victims” to stay, and keep coming back to them.

Finally, at age seventeen, when my bishop told me he had angels speaking to him about me, I decided I needed to make the break away from them, still realizing that I was too much for my own family to handle, but seeing this as the better alternative for me, I did so.

Yet having been lured back over one last time to say goodbye at age seventeen, and to in and of myself show them that I was stronger than them, I was then knocked out through something they gave me in drink, and I was given through injection into the roof of my mouth, a poison which was intended to kill me.

Immediately on my way walking home, I felt my mind descend deeper and deeper, even until I arrived at home, wherein my mind was in utter darkness, even at all the resistance I tried to put up to stop it from doing so.

Since my recovery and up until now, being the 16th of May 2019, I had in essence tried living for the Lord, without Him, a very hard road indeed, and this is how I’ve had to live and function, after the choices I made, to live a more separate life from God’s grace and relationship.

Because of this, and not having the coping resources, I cut off in measure, an open, clear and direct correspondence between God and myself. I’ve had to not only bear my own griefs and stresses because of all I’ve been through, but also with this added type of separation, as well as my dilemma as outlined earlier, because of other laws and influences which exist and that be in motion, both good and bad, I also had to, by means of my mental illnesses and thinner veil, bear the weight of all these things, pertaining to God’s plan for me, and my role therein. This as well as all of those around me, as was stated, howbeit Christ did carry me, even at the peril of my non-acknowledge relationship. This at the bitterness of my own soul toward His, for at those times, I hated Him.

My help, although from Him, came at the hand of the Father, because I would not accept the Savior as a being in my life, but the Father I would.

As someone once explained it to me, this type of absorbing other’s stresses is a condition known as being an empath, which I know I am. This has been an extremely exhausting, rough and unbearable route to go, but necessary for me somehow.

As of today, I have been changed and have forgiven my Savior and Father, for even though my life had to play out this way, even a tougher road than imaginable, I realize that I have been in the wrong in not loving them, and have come to accept and love Them, regardless of the pathway they chose for me to tread, howbeit I chose to agree to this life. This is and can be a great blessing for me, and I would not have conceived it possible, but I’m glad that now I’m in Their direct care, and not “my own” anymore.

Conversion in Christ

Let Us Follow the Carpenter’s Son

This post is about conversion in Jesus Christ. Not just about believing in, or even believing Him, but actually in coming to know Him, and then accepting Him as our Savior. Then we can proceed to begin the process of becoming one in Him, or as the scriptures state, atonement, or, at one with him.

I would also emphasize being like Him, as a cucumber becomes a pickle while being fully immersed in the juice formulation, even so, to be like Jesus, we to must be fully in the formulation of His character and traits, with His Spirit to always be with us, around and penetrating within us.

It’s about being like Him, doing as He does, thinking and feeling as He does, being truly converted into his likeness, image and glory. For to be like Him, we must take upon us our true selves, even becoming the best version of who we are, reflecting Him and His goodness in our very countenance and nature. For we truly are His as we become like Him. We come unto Him, to truly be who we really are meant to be.

We are not perfect yet, but can truly be perfect in Christ now, by taking upon us his name, by which we take upon us His yoke. In this we can move forward, equally yoked with him, sharing the load, and pulling side by side together with our Master. A true master is equal as a partner in living. For the pulling is balanced, pulling through the “Oxen’s yoke.” In this partnered relationship of love, both His and ours, we then have the perfect opposition made possible through His perfect balance, omniscience and grace.

As we give our very best efforts, Christ bears and affects His enabling grace and strength into us, which gives us power to pull forward, and the rest of the needed effort is given by Him in this yoked [sealed] relationship. This is what it means to be perfect in Christ here and now, and to have His yoke and cross to bear. For with Him we are perfect, until we are made perfect by and through and in him. For it is by God’s grace that we can do anything good in the first place;even by Him we move forward.

Because of this enabling partnership, we are never given more than we can handle, and we can always receive optimal growth, through our struggle of the challenges He gives us for our growth. We can be grateful for these hardships. As we do so together in Christ, we can truly learn to be Closer in Him, and at one. For He is our example and literal life source.

Yes, we indeed need our Jesus! He is OUR Savior. Not some other God’s Son and people’s Savior, but our own! We NEED to trust in our brother Jesus Christ, the Holy an Anointed One, for our survival, perpetuation, joy, happiness and peace! We depend on it! We must follow the lead and directions of the Carpenter’s Son. He is ours, Let’s be His!

In Him our lives are played out, for He took our lives into His body during the atonement, wherein we can deny ourselves, take up His (our) cross, and follow Him down our true road, to eventually become even as He is. This path is where we all must go. Like the Father, like the Son, like unto us.

Closer In Thee

Even as the Son is in Thee,
I want to be, growing from seed,
Giving glory in holy sanctity,
Closer in Thee.

As the earth is to tree,
I want to be rooted in peace,
Founded in holy increase,
Bound up, never to leave.

My soul’s richness,
Deepens in living waters,
Ever flowing pure and evenly,
In the time we spend in beauty.

My life enlivens with childlike excitement,
Jubilant in divine, holy love,
In unity and celestial thrill,
As we approach time on our sacred hill.

Our love is one of truth,
A tender bond of loyalty.
Giving our whole souls as proof,
Sealed in the bosom of eternity.

I cry out to all the families,
Throughout all unending space,
Time and all the eternities,
Remember your Godly place!

Secure your family line and home on high,
With relationships divine, husbands and wives,
Children, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers and Sisters,
All entwined throughout eternal lives.

The Fruits of the Atonement: Part One

Everything Is A Miracle

This includes a short report of 10 Scriptural References of gospel principles, as they relate to the Atonement.

The First Reference under atonement, as taken from the Bible Dictionary, a general overview:

Note: I have altered and supplemented the definition of atonement, as found in The Bible Dictionary, to more fully and accurately define the aspects found therein.

The word atonement, describes the setting “at one,” of those who have been estranged, and denotes the reconciliation of man to God. Sin is the cause of the estrangement, and therefore the purpose of atonement is to correct or overcome the consequences of sin. From the time of Adam to the death of Jesus Christ, true believers were instructed to offer animal sacrifices to the Lord. These sacrifices were symbolic of the forthcoming death of Jesus Christ, and were done by faith in Him (Moses 5:5–8).

Jesus Christ, as the anointed One, and Only Begotten Son of God, and the only sinless person to live on this earth, was the only one capable of making an atonement for mankind. By His selection and foreordination in the Grand Council before the world was formed, His divine Sonship, His sinless life, the shedding of His blood in the garden of Gethsemane, His death on the cross and subsequent bodily resurrection from the grave, He made a perfect atonement for all mankind. All are covered as pertaining to the resurrection, for all shall rise from the dead with immortal bodies because of Jesus’ Atonement. “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Cor. 15:22)

All little children are innocent at birth, and will automatically be covered by the atonement, until developmentally accountable. For this reason little children need no baptism until age eight, or until deemed accountable by the Lord. The forgiveness of sins is conditional however, on repentance. Each person’s individual forgiveness touches them to the degree that they have faith in Jesus Christ, repent of their sins, and obey the gospel.

The services of the Day of Atonement, foreshadowed the atoning work of Christ (Lev. 4; 23:26–32; Heb. 9). The scriptures point out that no law, ordinance or sacrifice would be satisfactory, if it were not for the Atonement of Jesus Christ (Heb. 10:1–9; 2 Ne. 9:5–24; Mosiah 13:27–32).

Sin is rebellion. (1 Jn. 3:4) It is a refusal on men’s part to submit to the laws of God (Rom. 8:7). By Adam’s transgression, man loses control over his own will, and becomes the slave of sin. (Rom. 7:14) So incurs the penalty of spiritual death, which is separation from God (Rom. 6:23). The Atonement of Jesus Christ, brings all mankind before the bar of God, to be answerable for their own manner of life. The means of atonement, is provided by the Father (John 3:16–17), and is offered in the life and person of His Son, Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 5:19).

Second Reference under Atonement: Grace, as it relates to the atonement.

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, reconcile yourselves to the will of God, and not to the will of the devil and the flesh; and remember, after ye are reconciled unto God, that it is only in and through the grace of God that ye are saved.” (2 Nephi 10:24)

In other words, pray unto the Father for forgiveness, repent, and know that it is not your penitence alone, or even the good works you do through the enabling atonement and grace in the first place, but that even after all this, we fall short, and need Him and His grace. We can do no good thing without Him.

As a further note, consider that Adam and Eve would not exist after partaking of the forbidden fruit without the promised atonement in place, for even their spirits would die, as would their bodies, except for this atonement. This is why God’s statement is true and correct. “Ye shall surely die (as a result thereby). As scriptures state, we would die spiritually and temporally (temporally meaning physically), except for our Father providing a Savior.

This staying alive spiritually was also extended to the adversary as their only grace, given by the glory of God. It was the Lord’s pre-instated act of atonement, of both before and beyond, which made providence to even give us all life in the first place, and the opportunity to have this probationary state and test here on earth. Jesus is the Life of the world, and all God’s children. With the act of transgression, Adam and Eve could then have children, and we could then be given bodies, and live here on earth away from our Heavenly Parents.

Think of the signifigance of this, why else would the adversary be purposely sent here, but to be a part of God’s plan for our test? The second great secret then, is that even the adversary will at one point, come to himself, and make his long, arduous way back home, as the ultimate prodigal son.

This will take place after his complete burning and purging clean in outer darkness, where he will finally realize, after having given his all to win, and having lost, suffering all the consequences he has to face, will penitently acknowledge all his faults, and be given the long, hard road home.

This will be at the end of his Third Estate, Estate referring to a period of life, separated by other periods of life, for example: The First Estate referring to a pre-earth life, The Second Estate as our earth life, and The Third Estate as post-earth life. At the end of Lucifer’s third Estate, he and his followers will then begin again, having learned in their best way possible, not to rebel.

Because Satan and his followers forfeit their agency in the pre-earth life, meaning that they placed themselves in a position where they cannot, and will not do anything good, and can only choose how to carry out their evil purposes, they will have a fair judgement, in the which situation they will be given the ability to repent, and begin again, in their next eternal life, with another First, Second and Third Estate, having served their purposes of helping to exalt us.

We too being called up to our next eternal life, having already enjoyed exaltation and eternal life, holy glory, joy and peace, will then also begin again, with another First, Second and Third Estate. Already having experienced the full healing and forgiveness from and for Lucifer and his followers, they also being changed, and gruelingly repented of all of their innumerous sins on their long road home, we will then in our next eternal life, finally welcome him and them back into the Father’s house, and will all be at peace, with a prefect understanding of the plan of our Father, for He is a prefect God, and will not lose any of His children. All having fulfilled their missions in the exalting of all of us. Satan, through being opposition for us to repent, learn and grow, and Jesus, providing the only way back home for us all. For it’s not just that we repent to become like our Savior, but it is in the repentance process we experience, that we become like Him.

As another note, all of us are, in body and spirit, collectively and individually held together and organized in perfection, through the atonement, under the sublime honor of God, and all his creations, unto the utmost high, holy, infinite, majestic and glorified creation of our spirits and bodies, even the highest and most sacred stewardships of all. We are to foster the good, and “bleed” out the bad through Christ Jesus.

Even Lucifer and his devils are held together, and not disorganized as dark matter unto their non-existence, for the atonement covers all of God’s children, even unto the sparing the children of darkness, who followed Satan and the benighted kingdom of Sheol. For the Lord controls and subjects them all.

Another truth, evil cannot get worse, unless good gets better. Their bounds are set, they cannot cross.

Third Reference under Atonement: Mercy, as a fruit of the atonement.

Isaiah 54:7
For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

A poem I wrote which helps explain and substantiate this scripture.

Mercy

Mercy is the substance,
Which stops our downward fall,
And gives place for grace,
To then lift us to our potential.

It is the sure steady rock,
Which we can all rely upon.
It’s essence and founder,
Is Christ our Savior.

He gained this victory and power,
As He lived and sacrificed His life,
With charity as the oath and standard held,
And champion which prevailed.

Christ is the Word, possessing
Every perfect godly attribute,
Which were poured forth,
From the garden, cross, and tomb.

He bought our way to freedom,
Living and giving His life in perfect light,
Shewing us mercy in loving submission,
And giving all the power to rise.

Mercy and grace work side by side,
And hand in hand, for without them,
We could not comprehend,
Or be lifted out of the power of Satan.

Mercy is God’s gracious gift,
Our great loving rescuer.
Grace is shared by Christ,
His gifts of perfecting power.

Forth Reference under Atonement: Charity, the pure love of Jesus Christ.

2 Nephi 33:7
I have charity for my people, and great faith in Christ that I shall meet many souls spotless at his judgment seat. Nephi had developed great charity for all his people, and knew that he would be greeted with such a wonderful reunion on the other side when he passed.

Fifth Reference, under Atonement: Hope, as a gift of the Spirit from the atonement.

Listen to the powerful words of Joel, as he relates the word of the Lord unto his people.

Joel 3:16
The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

This refers to the Zion of the New Jerusalem, and also the Jerusalem of old in Judea. The New Jerusalem shall be in Jackson County Missouri in North America, where His power shall be manifest, and the nations fear, for the fear of the Lord shall be there. And from the Old Jerusalem, the Zion of old, shall come forth His word.

For the salvation of the Old Jerusalem, two prophets from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, primarily the prophet of the last days, and his first councilor in the first presidency, shall go forth there, and fight off the armies of gog and magog. This will take place until the prophet allows himself to be killed, and then his first councilor, thus becoming martyrs for their own testimony of our Lord.

These two governing bodies of Zion will be as one, even His law and power coming forth from the New Jerusalem, and His word from the Old Jerusalem, renewed, for we need them both.

Sixth Reference under atonement: Faith, as is a gift of the Spirit from the atonement.

Matthew 9:29
Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And they were healed.

Seventh Reference under Atonement: Repentance, as a gift of the atonement.

Acts 3:19
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;…

The refreshing spoken of for us is the second coming, when the presence of the Lord will be here, and refresh the earth, and all that be from the time since the beginning of the earth.

Eighth Reference under the Atonement: Perfection, a fruit of conversion through the atonement.

Moses 8:27
And thus Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord; for Noah was a just man, and perfect in his generation; and he walked with God, as did also his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

To me being a perfect man or woman in this life, means nothing more than to know the Lord, to be like Him, being born again and converted, walking in the love and light of His soul, having the constant companionship of the Gift of the Holy Ghost.

Knowing to whom you belong, and living according to all that you know, to the very best of your ability. To be yoked with the savior, in that you and He pull the load together, and with Him by your side, He makes up for that which we lack.

Ninth Reference under the Atonement: Humility, as is a gift of the Spirit.

James 4:10
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. Humility is a strength.

Tenth Reference under the Atonement: Patience, as a parent virtue of many other attributes of Christ.

Revelations 14:12
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Heavenly Father & Jesus Christ’s roles in the Creation

Christ is The Word

Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are two separate beings. Thus is Jesus referred to as His Son. In the creation aspect of the earth, Heavenly Father spoke the words of creation, giving Christ the instructions on how to perform the work. Then Jesus went forth and did as was spoken by Heavenly Father, even speaking forth the words of creation, for Christ is the Word of His power.

Below are two verses from the inspired translation of the Holy Bible, as found recorded in The Book of Genesis from the Old Testament.

Because much of the books in the original Bible were lost, and even some of the writings we have changed through incorrect inscribing, as well as through mal-intent, Joseph Smith, a modern day prophet, was prompted and inspired to make inspired translations of certain parts of the Bible, to help restore it to its original state. This work was never fully finished.

These two verses from the rendered restorative work out of The Book of Genesis, are distinguished from The Book of Genesis by being called, The Book of Moses, are helpful insights.

Moses 2:5 reads: And I, God, called the light Day; and the darkness, I called Night; and this I did by the word of my power [who is Christ], and it was done as I spake; and the evening and the morning were the first day.

Moses 1 also tells us of other countless earths created by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, of which additional scripture like this tells us that Christ is the Savior of them all, even the entire universe.

In Moses 1:32 we read: And by the word of my power, have I created them (all these earths), which is mine Only Begotten Son, who is full of grace and truth.

As Jesus said, He does nothing except that which He sees, or hears His Father do and / or say. So Heavenly Father spoke the elements to organize, and then Jesus fulfilled His part of the creative process, and this aspect of His role, by creating the earth, as specified by the Father, first spiritually, and then physically.
