This section is under construction. As insights from our personal worship experiences emerge we will share them with you. Be aware that we are no different from you and your spiritual insights coming from your personal worship experiences are every bit as valuable as ours. 195:10.1 Christianity has indeed done a great service for this world, but what is now most needed is Jesus. The world needs to see Jesus living again on earth in the experience of spirit-born mortals who effectively reveal the Master to all men.
To Our Founding Father 3.2.2020
Sometimes in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to surmount our mere material experience with the experiment of America, and move into the truths and reality of the Creator with whom we have declared belief in thereto by way of our national statements of a constitution based upon Truth.
If Nature’s God, being the one who has created the powers of earth and the Laws of Nature, is the foundation upon which this self-governance enterprise came to be, as put forth by our Framers, then should it behoove us to find this Creator and to know Him?
Could this be the answer to our current national conundrum?
Is our problem of civil combat at its roots a spiritual one?
If these truths are self-evident, that all men and women are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, then would this Creator be the one and only Person who can lead each man or woman into their gifts of the actualities of a thriving Life, true Liberty and the pursuit of real Happiness?
Are we clear in our understanding of who our Creator is, or is there some confusion regarding this?
Do we know how to make personal contact with our Creator in order to more deeply comprehend these Rights that He has bestowed to us?
Are we ready to go beyond political debates awash in lowly human nature regarding governments led by men and women moving in human fallibility?
Our Framers told us
That to secure these rights, Governments have been instituted among men [and women], deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
If, per chance, our next step in this course of human events is the pursuit of discovering and then consenting to this Creator to govern our own hearts and minds, then should we trust Him to also bring personal true freedom and actual liberty to all men and women in every other nation and everywhere on our world? Nations and Governments are comprised of individual men, women and children.
Supposition: When every person is transformed by their Creator, then nations will follow suit.
If this supposition is a truth, (and we think it is), should America lead the way for this? After all – it is our Declaration of Independence that is founded upon this Creator.
To the true leader of our nation, our Founding Father. ~ the group at God Discovered
“The Kingdom OF God Is Like A Mustard Seed”, said Jesus. 3.1.2020
Sometimes I wonder what Jesus would think of various things we enjoy in our lives today. Would He have enjoyed television, listening to music, or eating a delicious sandwich with mayo and mustard? Speaking of Mustard, it is a fantastic tangy condiment that provides a real punch when we taste it. Truth can be like that: surprising, delightful, savory and rich. So, let us take a “Truth” bite out of this parable that Jesus gave to us as He never grew weary of explaining the kingdom of God to His group.
“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and
planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it
grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the
birds come and perch in its branches.” Jesus (Mathew 13:31)
Seeds are amazing little things. They do not look like much in their dormant tiny state, but find the right kind of dirt, in the right place, where the sun will shine on it and with your fingers dig a bit and place that dinky seed in the ground. Cover it up carefully. Water appropriately and step back. Now consider what you just did right there:
You placed a meager seed into favorable conditions for growth!
A farmer cannot MAKE his seeds grow and neither could we. That seemingly insignificant seed holds all of the properties within itself to react to dirt, water and sunshine and something within it begins — on its own — to g r o w!
With faithful care that teeny seed will become a seedling. It will grow upward to the sun and with budding leaves use photosynthesis to push its way up toward the heavens. There will be small roots that begin to push the granules of dirt out of the way for them to grow down, down and down more. Those roots are searching for life-giving water.
That seed will grow on its own in two directions!
Many days later you will go out to check on your baby seedling to find that it has now become quite a large plant that is actually producing flowers. Those flowers ultimately give way to their new seeds. Strong branches grow to provide a place for birds to land and nest in. Those herb seeds may become either new plants themselves or become the familiar yummy tangy condiment. What an amazing process of life that comes from that tiny unimpressive rock-like seed. And it did it all on it’s very own. God put it all in place within that itty bitty core. He created it to “know” exactly what to do in its material environment.
Jesus said the kingdom of God is like a mustard seed!
Jesus taught us in His gospel message that ‘The kingdom of God dwells within you’. The kingdom of God is not our faith, for we are in control of that within our own free will choice. Jesus taught that faith is the doorway to this kingdom of God which we ENTER INTO. Jesus likened our fleshly temples to the material soil in which the mustard seed potentially grows. We are the spiritual soil that this Kingdom seed resides in. We may choose to purposefully utilize our own internal favorable conditions for spiritual growth that this indwelling kingdom of God has primed. Faith is knowing that when we try to spring forth with our own spiritual development, His living waters will nurture us. His light of Life will foster our capacities for spiritual insight. The kingdom of heaven is what morphs us, feeding us living truths. It is what will produce new tendrils of spiritual understanding.
This inner portion of God waits for our child-like faith, our invitation to allow Him to take control within our minds, to develop deep pure roots of love that eventually bear appropriate fruits. This kingdom of God is the very will of God Himself residing in our own hearts and minds. It is like the seed of the living human being, which, from generation to generation, while it remains the same living seed, unfailingly unfolds itself in new manifestations and grows acceptably in channels of new adaptation to the peculiar needs and conditions of each successive generation. This revelation Jesus has given to us is a relevant living revelation, and Jesus desires that it shall bear much fruit in each individual and in each generation in accordance with the laws of spiritual growth, increase, and adaptive development. From generation to generation His gospel of this kingdom of God that dwells within must show increasing vitality and exhibit greater depth of spiritual power. It must not be permitted to become merely a sacred memory, a mere tradition ABOUT Jesus and the times in which He lived.
This is the religion 0F Jesus!
We must become supportive branches, each inspiring the other to hold fast to the Vine of Life our beloved Jesus the Christ. When we do this, we will also grow in two directions — one is deeply personal, and the other will be beautifully social, as we share what God is doing diversely in the adorableness of each other. This will become our new and loving brotherhood and sisterhood founded upon the Fatherhood of God Himself and we are ALL His dearly loved children, citizens in His Kingdom.
To turning off the televisions a while — silencing the cacophony a bit — in a timely manner putting down every other distraction we are tempted with; creating silence in our spaces. All this in order to allow the Light of His living truths to change us from within remembering it is HE who does most of the work. We simply provide favorable conditions for our spiritual growth.
To coming into childlike, faithful, and private worship to seek God and to FIND Him – within.
To becoming still and knowing God!
Jesus said faith is all that is required. ~ the group at God Discovered
Divine Love 3.4.2020
Divine love does not merely forgive wrongs; it absorbs and actually destroys them. The forgiveness of love utterly transcends the forgiveness of mercy. Mercy sets the guilt of evil-doing to one side; but love destroys forever the sin and all weakness resulting therefrom. Jesus brought a new method of living to our world. He taught us not to resist evil but to find through him a goodness which effectually destroys evil.
"The Father in heaven loves his children, and therefore should you learn to love one another; the Father in heaven forgives you your sins; therefore should you learn to forgive one another." ~ Jesus

No Worry 3.5.2020
What Jesus preached against was not forethought but anxiety, worry. He taught the active and alert submission to our Paradise Father's will. In answer to many of their questions regarding frugality and thriftiness, Jesus simply called attention to his life as carpenter, boat-maker, and fisherman, and to his careful organization of the twelve. He sought to make it clear that the world is not to be regarded as an enemy; that the circumstances of life constitute a divine opportunity in time working along with the children of the Paradise Father. 140:8.3
This is our time – our dispensation – to find solutions for our problems, to help others and not just ourselves, to build up our faith in God and to teach others to trust their Father as well. May we make Jesus proud of us as we walk through the struggles of our lives.
