Most see only the physical life and their security here, seeing faith as a distant ethereal.concept

Christ, when on Earth in the physical form of the one called Emmanuel, was focused on the things of the Kingdom of God, the realm of the Creator, also called the kingdom of heaven:.Matthew 6:20,21, 24-34; Luke 18:22; Matthew 19:21. Also Luke 9:24,25; 1Peter 1:18,19; Mark 10:30. His teaching was for us to follow His example of good.(what is 'good'?):.1John 2:6 "He that says he abides in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked."

Realizing the waste of excessive.indulgence to accumulate things for this life helps get the next life into perspective:.Isaiah 2:20 "In that day a man casts his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats." Isaiah 17:10,11 "Because you have forgotten the God of your salvation and have not been mindful of the rock of your strength, therefore shall you plant pleasant plants and shalt set it with strange slips. In the day shalt you make your plant to grow and in the morning shall you make your seed to flourish, but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.".Your work doesn't turn out:.Haggai 1:5,6.

It's the things of the spirit that count for things eternal. In this, the One we call Emmanuel left us an example.

The Infinite One has set frequencies up, invisible laws, if you will, that judge us all the time. So, in this way we are constantly judging ourselves, for in the spiritual realm there are none judging us. The true motivations of the heart cannot be hid. All is frequencies and frequencies can produce good or evil. This is the deeper meaning of reaping what we have sown.

One can tell if someone, a person, government department or other corporation cares. Observe if involvement with them makes things better or worse, easier or increasingly difficult? If what they are producing leads to help, healing, love and kindness, then it's good. If it tends toward hate, intolerance, hurts in some way against mankind, then, is that information needed? Here one can use Ask Suby. There are many tricks.(Amos 5:12).to keep the poor at bay. Obviously such are not of Christian mind as the early church was when a dearth caused much poverty:.Acts 11:28-30; Romans 15:25-28; 1Corinthians 16:1-4; 2Corinthians 9:11-13; Galatians 2:10

Deuteronomy 15:11 "For the poor shall never cease out of the land, therefore I command you, saying, You shall open your hand wide unto your brother, to your poor and to your needy in your land."

Results in life from the presence in life we all individually have, judge the true motivations of the heart that are behind each of us, what it is that we really are, a generous person or a controller for greed:.Romans 2:16;.Proverbs 30:14 "There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth and the needy from among men."
Psalms 41:1 "...Blessed is he that considers the poor. The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble."
Proverbs 14:21 "He that despises his neighbour sins, but he that has mercy on the poor, happy is he."
Proverbs 28:27 "He that gives unto the poor will not lack, but he that hides his eyes has many a curse."
Proverbs 29:7 "The righteous considers the cause of the poor. But the wicked regards not to know it." Those that don't care have been influenced by the dark side.
Galatians 2:10 "Only they would that we should remember the poor, the same which I also was forward to do. Be not servants of men."
Deuteronomy 15:11 "For the poor never cease out of the land. Therefore I command you, saying, open thine hand wide.(one way how).unto your brother, to your poor and to your needy, in your land..."
Mark 14:7 "For you have the poor with you always and whenever you can, do them good...".The poor are there to do good too, so they won't be poor any more.
Psalms 112:9 "He has dispersed, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour."
Proverbs 11:24,25 "There is that scatters and yet increases and there is that withholds more than is meet.(fitting), but it tends to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat and he that waters shall be watered also himself."

Isaiah 58:10 "And if you draw out your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then shall your light rise in obscurity and your darkness be as the noonday."
Isaiah 60:1 "Arise, shine, for your light is come and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you."

Leviticus 25:35 "And if your brother be waxen poor and fallen in decay with you.(among you), then you shall relieve him. Yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner, that he may live with you."
Matthew 25:34-40 "...Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was an hungred and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you took me in. Naked and you clothed me. I was sick and you visited me. I was in prison and you came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungry and fed you? or thirsty and gave you drink? When did we see you as a stranger and took you in? or naked and clothed you? Or when did we see you sick or in prison and came unto you? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me."

The ancient Mosaic Law had legislation regarding the poor being specially important.

Every seven years all debts were released from obligation to pay: Deuteronomy 15:1-6.

And in the year of jubilee.(Leviticus 25:10-17).they recovered their property:.Leviticus 25:25-30.

Every seventh year, called a sabbatical year, the poor were to have their share of the produce of the fields and the vineyards:.Exodus 23:10,11.

And in the sabbatical year and jubilee years the servant was to go free and supplied.generously:.Deuteronomy 15:12-18; Leviticus 25:39-43.

The poor had the right of gleaning the fields:.Leviticus 19:9,10; Deuteronomy 24:19-21.

Usury was forbidden and any pledged.raiment was to be returned before the Sun went down:.Exodus 22:25-27; Deuteronomy 24:10-13

The rich were to be generous to the poor:.Deuteronomy 15:7-11.

Certain portions from the tithes required under this Mosaic Law were assigned to the poor:.Deuteronomy 14:28,29

In the New Testament we have similar injunctions given with reference to the poor:.Luke 3:10,11; 14:12-14; Galatians 2:10; James 2:15,16.

Job was a man who had concern for others. He had very great wealth and was the greatest man in all the east at that time:.Job 1:3.

He helped the poor, the fatherless, was concerned about others and their possible suicide, cared for widow's children.(no doubt provided finances), was involved in humanitarian effort, made a conscious effort to find the poor, wanted fairness for everybody, and stood up for justice.(Job 29:11-17).and so should we.

The Creator cares for the poor:.Psalms 72:12-14. He regards extremely highly how we treat the poor.(Ezekiel 18:8,13,17; Job 24:2-9).and those who may be in debt to us.

A person meeting with Emmanuel was offered a place to be right along with Him, yet turned it down and turned down a place for Emmanuel to stay, his mind being more on the concerns of his own lifestyle:.Luke 9:57-62 "And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Emmanuel said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.(wait until my father dies; in other words, give me a few months to wrap things up). Emmanuel said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead.(why did Emmanuel seem so harsh?), but go thou and preach.(teach, publish, get the message to others so they can be helped).the kingdom of God. And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. And Emmanuel said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God."

Sadly, it is often a case of 'my security and affairs first', my idols first, with some who use the Christian name. Part of our efforts should be to help provide for others in our family and neighborhood:.Ephesians 4:28 ".....But rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needs."

What did Emmanuel have to say about the perversion of self security and what seems to be an obsession with quite a few people these days who do not understand their ego, that their ego is running and ruining their life, edging God out, disabling their minds from spiritual links that would take them into arealm of high consciousness.

Many people force themselves out of their present situation in order to pursue the quest of 'finding themselves':.Proverbs 18:2 "A fool has no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.(the try everything people limited only by what they can spend)."

Matthew 10:39 "He that finds.(original Greek is 'to find by thought, examination and scrutiny after searching').his life shall lose it and he that loses his life for My sake.(and 'what's His sake' mean?), shall find.(same original).it.".Seeking for your life to be established by ego means is futile is what the verse means. But where does one really 'find themselves'?

People rely on their egos so much, they submerge even the slightest hint their soul gives them. And the worst part is, they don't know it..To get on the track to spiritual unfoldment.

You find your self when you find the love of the universe.

Today we say "I'm just not ready for a relationship. Give me some more time". Answer "Yea, sure honey! A year from now I'll be different and so will you see yuh 'round!" 

What Emmanuel is saying is that without Him in one's life, we will just never 'get it all together' the way we hope for. When you are in Emmanuel, you have got it together now! Now, what does it mean to 'be in Him'? 

Many are never ready, as they are never satisfied.2Peter 3:3 "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers.(original 'those who play games, mockers'), walking.(living) after.(according to).their own lusts.(original is 'desires'; in other words 'a selfish lifestyle', for desire of itself is good as it's the mother of all progress including spiritual progress - if you don't desire to be kind, how can you become kind?)." Habbukuk 2:4.

2Peter 1:3,4 "According as his divine power has given unto us all things.(now).that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that has called us to glory and virtue. Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.".It means we inordinately focus upon that which is subject to perishing the physical:.Luke 9:24 "For whosoever will save.(word 'save' here means 'to preserve or rescue from danger, prosper, etc.).his life shall lose it. But whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it." Luke 17:33 "Whosoever shall.('shall', not in original Greek or Hebrew anywhere).seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it."

And what did Emmanuel say about looking after us.Luke 9:56 "For the Son of Man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save.(word 'save' here, is the same original Greek word as the word 'save' in above two scriptures).them....."
