The Simplicity That is Being Asked of Us Now

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, 
and commanded them, 
Go not into the way of the Gentiles, 
and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 And as ye go, 
The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick, 
cleanse the lepers, 
raise the dead, 
cast out devils: 
freely ye have received, 
freely give.
9 Provide neither gold, 
nor silver, 
nor brass in your purses,
10 Nor scrip for your journey, 
neither two coats, 
neither shoes, 
nor yet staves: 
for the workman is worthy of his meat.
11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, 
enquire who in it is worthy; 
and there abide till ye go thence.
12 And when ye come into an house, 
salute it.
13 And if the house be worthy, 
let your peace come upon it: 
but if it be not worthy, 
let your peace return to you.
14 And whosoever shall not receive you, 
nor hear your words, 
when ye depart out of that house or city, 
shake off the dust of your feet.

Matthew 10:5-14 
King James Version

Why do I love Jesus so?

Because He was the simplest, and most powerful Teacher.

Because He was the KING of Kings, the LORD of Lords, and yet all He asked was that we worship the FATHER.

If we are to be worthy of God, we have to walk the path of Jesus.

We are to be simple, kind, humble, and trusting of God.

We must allow ourselves to be taught by the Holy Spirit, who will show us how Jesus really is, and how we are to live.

We are to become born again Christians -- born of water and spirit.

Current world circumstances are testing the Spirit of Jesus in us.

Have we embraced the LORD?

Or, are we still beholden to the world?

Look closely upon the world today.

All that is of greed and vanity, are being humbled.

Only the very basic industries and professions that aim to genuinely feed, clothe, heal, transport, and shelter people are being "allowed" by God now.

And vaccines are not one of them.

The body has great intelligence, for God created every cell of our being.

It knows how to "fight" invaders.

If there's anything we all need right now is food and kindness.

To be fed clean, nutritious food and water each day, and to be allowed to work the best way we know how, without ruthless taskmasters asking us to perform beyond our limits, giving us no time, money, and energy for ourselves, and our families.

Right now, we are being fed all forms of lies, and artifice.

Anything that has been created in a lab, is not of God -- it is of man.

We are no better than robots, at the hands of uncaring masters.

I only have ONE Master -- Jesus.

Those who do not love others are being exposed.

If your heart is awake, and you are a follower of Jesus, you will see that you are not truly loved by the industries of the world.

You are merely a consumer, and they feed upon you.

If you are really loved by the world, then they would love CHRIST, too.

Actually, Christ MUST be LOVED first.

But the world has shown they have no love for Christ.

If the world doesn't love Christ, how can they claim to love you?

They only love self -- their lofty position, their power, their popularity, their wealth, their education, and their beauty -- all that is not of God.

In His ministry, Christ boasted of no such thing, even as He was the SON of God, and upon whom demons quake in fear.

How much more are we to be brought down upon our knees, so we may finally acknowledge that POWER belongs to GOD alone?

Only with God can we have a tomorrow.

That is the reality of it.

Anyone who says otherwise, has merely revealed the master they serve.
