Now to what extent the application of this knowledge is implemented is between you and the Great Infinite One. On being transformed.

My urging to you is 'go for the gold':.Philippians 3:13,14; 2Timothy 4:8. Get the best reward that you possibly can. 

Why limit yourself to thirty fold.(Matthew 13:8,23).when you can get a hundred? Go for the prize.(Hebrews 12:1; 1Corinthians 9:24; Philippians 2:16).as Paul did. There are many 'prizes'.

The Creator wants us to 'go out and get busy', to go out and be involved in helping others, helping to reach them with the message they so desperately need, that of awakening to their true state of being, serving others, figuring out how to do the best you can for them and for yourself in order to make a loving and positive difference in life.1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

God doesn't remove the problems in life, because they are there to deal with and that provides opportunity for an incredible reward, but one finds it hard to believe beyond this life unless he is awakened:.1Corinthians 2:9 "But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for them that love him.".Paul clearly saw where he was going:.Philippians 3:14.

Go out and be sociable and follow the guidance you receive in your quiet times:.Mark 4:20-24 "And these are they which are sown on good ground, such as hear the word and receive it and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty and some an hundred. And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick? For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested, neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. And he said unto them, Take heed what you hear. With what measure you mete, it is measured to you and unto you that hear shall more be given." Matthew 16:27 "For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels and then he shall reward every man according to his works." 1Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord." Matthew 16:27 "...he shall reward every man according to his works."

It is doubtful whether one can be good without being good for something! One thing you can be good about that will set the world back up and away from its present destructive path.

Too often instead we listen to, as Jowett calls him "Mr. Worldly Wiseman":."Take the line of least resistance; keep your lips closed; go with the stream; look after yourself! This is the method of reasonableness! This is the policy which assures self preservation! This is the secret of a successful and progressive life! Keep your lips closed, the policy of silence; go with the stream, the policy of opportunism; look after yourself, the policy of self-aggrandizement. Such is the counsel of Mr. Worldly Wiseman. The Mister Worldly Wiseman inside all of us is always sucked in by anything that he becomes convinced of that will make him greater, make him richer, more popular, more secure and worshipped more, even if it is at the expense of his fellowman. And this is easy for him, as he is convinced that all his fellowmen are the same as he, so might as well go along with the flow.".Luke 6:39 "...Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?".Humility is not a byword of his or her character. The lives of such are filled with hypocrisy

"Feelings which are never expressed languish away and die. It is equally true of the noble and the base. Refuse expression to an unworthy passion and we slay it by suffocation. Life is sustained and enriched by expression, by endurance and by sacrifice." ...Jowett
   Matthew 10:38,39.
   Have a good cause to sacrifice your idle time to.

Trials would not be needed in order for a person to develop compassion if he would take efforts himself toward developing this valuable quality of the heart. Sadly some have lost courage. All persons are in a belief that they will die, but few ever really live.

Some spiritual persons however seem to prefer to develop an attitude of praise to God, "praise you Emmanuel" they sing, "oh, if we can only get closer to Emmanuel". 

Well, there is a way. And it is being neglected. And because of that neglect, they work iniquity:.Matthew 7:23;.Psalms 36:1-3 "To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David the servant of the LORD: The transgression of the wicked says within the heart, that there is no fear of God.(no interest in the things of a higher consciouness), relying instead on the conditioning of his ego that he is used to).before his eyes. For he flatters.(original is 'distributes to himself').himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity (original is 'perversity').be found to be hateful.(comment: goes his own way till something dawns upon him that his way is not producing what he hoped for). The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit. He has left off to be wise and to do good."

But many are too self concerned, too conditioned by the circumstances that have made their egos what they are to them, too conditioned.(self brainwashed).to effectively care for others in need who may never be able to repay them.

At the Tower of Babel.(its ruins are supposed to be the present Birs Nimroud, six miles south-west of Hilleh, the modern Babylon, situated 56 miles south of Baghdad {or Bagdad}, Iraq; the ancient tower of Babel became the celebrated city of Babylon) which was close to the ancient city of Ur), people wanted to build a name for themselves, for selfish reasons, away from Creator-God:.Genesis 11:1-9; Jeremiah 44:16,17.

Today it is the same. Corporations do it. Churches do it. Associations do it. Individuals do it, seeking things and ways to present themselves and their interests as being foremost and the select of choice for others, the byword or their motto being, 'what advantage for the self can be gained'?

Instead of doing this with the right kind of pride and attitude of service, the wrong kind of pride is all too often embraced. Bigger to be better. Bigger to impress, but usually not for service to others; just for more advantage for self in some way, even if it puts another at a disadvantage. For example, churches and corporations get wealthier and those supporting them often become poorer. Such is the way of the ego.

Self-importance and self-aggrandizement are the bywords of the selfish whose investments of time are confined to this all too short physical existence in which their efforts are put into: Matthew 6:19-21. We are here for only a few years, here to learn why we are here, here to make a difference of betterment in others lives.

The ego submerges the real reasons why mankind is here and substitutes negative concepts of greed and selfishness:.Genesis 11:4 "And they said Go to let us build us a city and a tower whose top may reach unto heaven and let us make us a name lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.(the ego feature of fear was their base for action)."

Zechariah 4:6 ".....Not by might nor by power but by my spirit says the LORD of hosts.(original root word for 'hosts' is 'fight', that is, the Creator is able to act in His invisible realm in such a manner {how?} as having an even greater effect than powerful armies able to fight at the physical level; we {John 17:26} host the presence of the Infinite One:.Isaiah 54:5).

1Corinthians 10:33 "Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many.that they may be saved.".(word 'saved' does not have the religious connotation that many would assume it would have; instead it means...)

Paul was loving toward God in such a way that made him disciplined in his purpose, that gave him such a loving, protective heart toward others in Christ that he was even willing to give his own salvation so that others may receive more:.Romans 9:3.

One can tell by noting another's actions and inaction, if a spiritual person really believes in a life beyond, or whether they mostly trust in themselves:.2Corinthians 1:9 ".....that we should not trust in ourselves but in God which raises the dead." Philippians 3:11 "If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead."

There appears to be three degrees of faith: 1) Intellectual faith, a weaker faith; knowing that Emmanuel is God, but the Bible states that "even.the devils believe", so belief like this is still below par. 

2) Casual faith, a type common to many; praying for your kids/family, praying before you get on a plane, etc. and trusting the Creator that your prayers are answered.

3) And saving faith, the best kind; trusting in Emmanuel the Christ for all things. Perhaps it is because we sometimes become engrossed in our own depression or feelings of hopelessness, that we fail to progress to saving faith. 

We appear to be created with a God shaped hole in our soul. We go throughout life attempting to fill it with everything but God. Some go to church every week and may think they are filling that God shaped hole with obeisance. But a few soon realize, that's just 'religion'.....God wants more than that, He wants a 'relationship' made possible through the righteousness of Emmanuel available as a gift. This also is the main way to break off those things which may control you.
