Many believers go to church.
What are they hearing from the pulpit
which make many complacent?.Jeremiah
23:16,17 "Thus says the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of
the prophets that prophesy
unto you. They make you
vain, as they speak a vision of their own heart and not

of his own heart.(like:
'I imagine next year I will continue on with keeping the
law's ten commandments and be giving my tithe
to the church as the pastor said, so that things will go well for me' or
things we see as being right for us to do, in order that we be righteous

do not worry, God is a forgiving God).no
evil shall come upon you.".Jeremiah

God really wanted
them to have a heart toward Him, a heart that would have done them
so much good.
The Creator is forgiving,
but He is also a."hard
25:24. The Creator wants the highest position for you that you can
possibly achieve. And the Creator gets perturbed
with those who teach things that cause people
to become lukewarm in love and
cool in compassion, where the heart of giving
to others is submerged by the mindset
of getting for self. When we leave off the
beatitudes, we are left with the me attitudes.
The fear we have of loss
is equal to the lack of involvement we have with others. Fear says stay,
be comfortable. God says 'I've given you the power of the Holy Spirit.

weak and not to please ourselves. Wherefore receive you one another,

Greek for 'hospitality' is 'friendly

6:6 "Let him who receives teaching in the word give a part in all good
things to his teacher." Romans 15:27
"Yes, it has been their good pleasure and they are in their debt, for if
the Gentiles have had a part in the things of the spirit which were theirs,
it is right for them, in the same way, to give them help in the things
of the flesh." Philippians 4:15
"And you have knowledge Philippians, that when the good news first came
to you, when I went away from Macedonia, no church took part with me in
the business of giving to the saints, but you only." 1Timothy

Here's where meditation comes in.
Meditation helps you to not overstep
the guidance that comes to you from God.
Instead holding the precious thing of guidance close in your heart, awaiting
the fulfillment of the guidance you feel by being alert for circumstances
that may be synchronous.
In this way guidance keeps you on
track when you keep focused on the right track.."Let
yourself also be guided by your pure human instinct.
Please don't let yourself be influenced by anyone."....Bruno
Guidance comes from concern
for others. That's a high consciousness quality, keeping one in alignment
with those things. Concern for others puts one in
immediate alignment with his Creator, because concern is one
of the attributes of love and God is.(1John
this love through
His spirit through those of the same mind:.Romans
12:16 "Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things,
but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits."
But what do you do with the
guidance, how can you be sure it's really intuition
from the non local invisible intelligence.(us
how can you be sure that it is completely accurate?.(*)
We can learn to do good
we want the
guidance in all things:.John
6:17; 2Thessalonians 3:5.
But one must take action upon what he learns, otherwise of what
to anyone is it? Not taking action is resisting the Holy Spirit's
guidance in one's life and akin to self

3:8. Taking action is recovering yourself to God:.2Timothy
is no action without inspiration."....Bernie

Some still focus upon the
commandments, thinking to keep themselves 'right with God' and
themselves that good feeling of 'godly spirituality', while the world
and some of their brethren remain in dire.straits

turn from truth:.Titus
1:14-16; 2Timothy 4:3; 2Timothy
Many have been deceived into
thinking that the iniquity in their lives to get rid of, is all the things
commonly understood as the world,
that is being sinful, not realizing
that the greatest shortfall is that of not loving and caring for others.
If one is plagued by various
other character downfalls and he begins actively loving and consistently
caring for others, his chronic
sins will dissipate.
you know what spirit.(attitude).you
drinking, swearing and the like by others bother you?
What about being bothered
enough to alleviate the suffering
of those in need, whether or not these things are mixed in? Don't be
so sickeningly 'pure' that others repulse
