Many strive for self-sufficiency, yet every breath (spirit, air) they
take should reveal that, that which sustains the life given them is not
within their own self or being, but emanates from without!
John The Baptist testified, "He (The Messiah) Whom The Only True GOD has sent speaks The Words of GOD, for GOD does not give The Spirit by measure unto Him." (John 3:34)
The Messiah testified, "I have greater witness than that of John: for The Works which Our FATHER has given Me to finish, are the same Works that I do, and they bear witness of Me, that Our FATHER has sent Me." (John 5:36)
The Messiah also testified, "I have not spoken of Myself; but The FATHER WHO sent Me, HE gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and how I should speak." (John 12:49)
And The Messiah, Who spoke The Words "Our FATHER" gave Him testified that sufficiency is of Creation and The Creator (Our FATHER)!
"Do not lay up treasures for yourselves upon earth, for that is what moth and rust can corrupt, and where thieves can break through and steal! But lay up treasures for yourselves in Heaven, where neither moth or rust can corrupt, and where thieves can not break through and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart is also.
The light of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is single, your whole body shall be full of light! But if your eye is evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
No man can serve two masters. For he will either hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You can not serve both The Only True GOD and money!
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink! Nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not The Life more than meat, and the body than clothes?
Behold the fowls of the air! For they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, yet your Heavenly FATHER feeds them. Are you not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why do you take thought for clothes? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these flowers. Wherefore, if The Only True GOD so clothes the grass of the field, which to day is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall HE not much more clothe you, O you of little Faith!
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, how shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the worldly ones seek) For your Heavenly FATHER knows that you have need of all these things.
But seek first the Kingdom of GOD, and HIS righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you! Therefore take no thought for tomorrow, for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Every day has evils enough of it's own"! (Matthew 6:19-34)
Simply sad for all who believe in or seek "self-sufficiency".......
Now The Only True GOD and FATHER (CREATOR) of ALL, HE promised to "fulfill all the needs of HIS Children richly, through HIS Son The Messiah"! (Philippians 4:19)
So it is The Life is sustained by Our FATHER(CREATOR), in and of HIS Creation and HIS SPIRIT!
Simply, sufficiency is of The CREATOR and HIS Creation.......
Once again, The Messiah testified, "I have not spoken of Myself; but The FATHER WHO sent Me, HE gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and how I should speak". (John 12:49)
"Don't you believe that I am in The FATHER, and The FATHER in Me? The Words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself, but The FATHER, HE WHO dwells in Me, HE does The Works"! (John 14:10)
"He that loves Me not, does not keep My sayings: and The Word which you hear is not Mine, but The FATHER'S, HE WHO sent Me." (John 14:24)
I have manifested YOUR Name unto the men WHO YOU gave Me out of the world. YOUR's they were, and YOU gave them to Me; and they have kept YOUR Word." (John 17:6)
Then answered The Messiah and said unto them, "Truly, Truly, I say unto you, The Son CAN DO NOTHING OF Himself, but that which He has seen The FATHER do, for whatever things Our FATHER does, those things The Son also does." (John 5:19)
I can of Mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and My judgment is just; because I seek not Mine own will, but The Will of The FATHER WHO has sent Me." (John 5:30)
And The Testimonies bear witness to The Messiah being "a servant" of "The ONLY TRUE GOD". (Isaiah 42:1, John 17:3)
Hope is, there will be those reading this who no longer deny and defy their Creator(FATHER), for The Creator, The Only True GOD and FATHER of All, HE knows what is best for HIS Creation!
And Creation IS sufficient, indeed and Truth!
So There Is Hope!
For Miracles do happen.......
Hope is there may be those who experience The Miracle that is "receiving a love of The TRUTH", for they will "Come Out" from among those who are destroying Creation(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which IS SPIRIT (TRUTH, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Faith, Grace, Mercy, Hope,,,,,,, ALL that is Truly GOOD)! (II Thessalonians 2:10-12)
Those who "Come Out" will desire but "A Simple and Spiritual Life", and will no longer be of those The CREATOR is going to "destroy because they are destroying HIS Creation." (Rev 11:18c)
And they will have Peace! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way, for "The WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one" indeed and Truth...... (John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)
ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT)!
Thankfully TRUTH IS! a lie is not.......
Abide in The TRUTH.......
