We hope this finds you well and in good spirit.

The following, as always.., is "for what it's worth".

All credit goes to Our Father and Our Master for His editing/additions.

Recently We/I believe there was a misunderstanding between another disciple and myself. He suggested I was talking to him like he were a stranger and that [from Our/my point of view] wasn't the case at all. I addressed him as I have learned to do from Our Master.., courteous, respectful and non-assuming. As Our Master points out; "Being courteous and polite costs nothing and marks the difference between a gentleman and a brute beast." We/I agree wholeheartedly so therefore practice courtesy with everyone.

But, this reminded Us of something else - relationships. I once read, "we don't have 'friends'.., we have 'fiends' ". Allow Us to put that in context please.

Before going through the fast so Our spiritual selves can be REborn, we are all born of the flesh [water] first [the second birth is the rebirth of the spirit and is of Light]. Immersed in that [human] experience [in that ALTERED state of consciousness - the spirit "self" is ASLEEP "IN" the flesh ] Satan does his work. Satan looks to keep us all asleep and perpetuate his counterfeit life of the flesh. http://jahtruth.net/buddha.htm

The Apostles warned us not to fall asleep:-

 - 1 Thessalonians 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober.
5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
5:11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
5:12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
5:13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. [And] be at peace among yourselves.
5:14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all [men].
5:15 See that none render evil for evil unto any [man]; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all [men].
5:16 Rejoice evermore.
5:17 PRAY WITHOUT CEASING. 

King of kings' Bible - 1 Corinthians 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the Knowledge of God: I speak [this] to your shame.

King of kings' Bible - Romans 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed.
13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of Light. 

King of kings' Bible - Ephesians 5:14 Wherefore He saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee Light. 

Amongst those who are asleep in the human condition, the film Dune warns you that "the 'Sleeper' must awaken":- 

The Book "The Way home or face The Fire" explains how to do this:- http://jahtruth.net/wayad.htm

Remember also God's warning to you via His Prophet Daniel:

King of kings' Bible - Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael [the Archangel] (Eno. 20:5; 36:1; 40:8; 58:1; 59:9; 57:1-2; 70:4; Rev.12:7; Sura 2:98) stand up, the Great Prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there
was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the Book [of Life] (Rev. 13:8; 17:8; 20:15; 21:27; Sura 83:20).
12:2 And many of them that sleep in "the dust of the earth" (Gen. 13:16; 28:14) shall awake, some to Everlasting Life, and some to shame [and] everlasting contempt.
12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to Righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. 

So what are the mechanics? How does Satan do it?

It is said we are the "sum total of our experiences". Certainly there is truth in that.

[In offering these thoughts We are particularly speaking to souls in male bodies.]

Being born of the flesh first (and "mom's spirit" - {make no doubt.., your mom's spirit is IN you}) we "sense" we are incomplete. Unconsciously we are "driven" to re-unite/complete ourselves with the mom spirit in the flesh. But, while growing up we also "unwittingly" take on other "spirits" from aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, teachers, etc. [no wonder we eventually end up going through an "identity crisis"]. http://jahtruth.net/noti.htm

"Something" very clever [operating at a SUB-conscious level/in the darkness of the ego-self] KNOWS what to look for in another "human" [to "support" what "it" is - the "fiend" in all of us]. Have you ever met someone you liked INSTANTLY or disliked INSTANTLY and wondered WHY that was? It is spiritual. In our "altered"/human state of consciousness.., our ego-self "looks" to surround "it"-self with "familiar spirits" [a "self"-perpetuating support system from WITHOUT] of this world [the father of these "familiar spirits" being Satan/the devil].

Notice how drunks pick out other drunks to "hang out with". The "spirit" of drunkenness is "familiar" to both [or all drunks]. Same thing with FALSE "born again christians". They are "drawn" to each other. Those "spirits" [whether drunkenness or false, born again christian] ARE "the same whore in a different gown".

"Familiarity BREEDS contempt." What is going on here?? WHY is that?

EVERY human here [on planet Earth] has an EGO. For the purpose of this essay, let Us define the ego as the "antithesis" of God. In other words.., you, I and everyone you have EVER met on this planet [except Our Master] "sees" "it"-self as a god.., infallible. [AND that "condition" is at enmity with God because there can only be ONE GOD.]

Two people meet. They "like" each other. They start to develop a "relationship". Like going through a courting process, they start "feeling each other out". They tell each other stories of their pasts. All the while one ego is "summing-up" the other [becoming more FAMILIAR - SO "IT" CAN HAVE SOMETHING TO JUDGE [this is where the "contempt" starts to sneak in]. Ever hear the term.., "the honeymoon is over"? This holds true for ALL relationships. BUT, let's analyze the male/female/ marital relationship [first]. 

Anyone who has ever been married understands the "battle of the sexes". It is ALL about POWER. Who is going to be the "top dog" [ego/god to "rule the roost]? There can only be one "superior" god in a relationship. Haven't you ever noticed a woman wants to know EVERYTHING about you.., even your "deepest darkest secrets"? Ever notice how "buddies" are probably more willing to "share" those kinds of secrets with their "buddies" than their wives? Why do you suppose that is? First.., the "buddy" will probably not be AS judgmental [and could be JUST as GUILTY] and second, he doesn't have to worry about playing the ego game at the same level.., after all.., he doesn't have to worry about having sex with his male friend.

With that said however.., do we really think the same ego game isn't going on between two males [as friends]? Two "gods"[human ego's] are unable to share "the throne" [of a "relationship" and ALL human/ego-based relationships suffer with this problem] so "the game begins". There are many ways to "play the game" but We'll strive to stick to one example. Let us say one of Our [two] examples is a "class president type". Good looking. Body is well built. Intelligent. Charming. Articulate. Chances are.., he'll find "buddies" who aren't quite his "equal". Friends his "something"/"it"/ego chooses are not quite as good looking [perhaps even homely], certainly not as intelligent, charming and articulate. In this situation he has unwittingly surrounded himself with FIENDS.., NOT friends. {At this point of Our example's development, Our "class president type" would more than likely "see", what could be a good friend, as an enemy [because a good/true friend would not support the ego of Our class president type example].

There are plenty of female-minded males [please remember we were all raised on "female love (Satan's counterfeit - human emotion - NOT Love)" and we all should by now know where the female got her emotional "love" mimic from - Satan] quite willing to "play second fiddle" to Our "class president" type male example. They are glad to just "be around" their "god". But shouldn't we ask..? who is the GREATER ego-god? The one ON the throne..? OR the one who put the[ir] god on the throne?

Hopefully you can "see" how important the "familiarity" issue is to "playing out" these scenarios. The "closer"/more familiar the second fiddle fellow can get [by learning more and more about his "hero"/god] the more he can find fault/judge [almost ALL females do this to the males they let chase them]. Now Our Mr. Second Fiddle can "secretly" play God in his secret judging. The judging makes him feel good/godly so he is drawn to the "class president" types ALL of his HUMAN life UNTIL [if he is going to] HE WAKES UP.

"FAMILIARITY does breed contempt because the ego-self is compelled to "play this game" with virtually EVERYONE "it" meets. If "it" ends up as the "throne" occupier.., "it" "sees" "its" "subjects" for the "sucking up" game they are playing and that disgusts "it". On the other side of this game, the "king maker" [second fiddle/ "subject"] gets to be his own secret "god", because in his own mind he is above the king he has made, or he could not make him a king in his mind and thus builds a case for contempt for the "hero"/god he has created. What a nightmare.

King of kings' Bible - Leviticus 19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I [am] the "I AM" your God.
20:6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set My face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. 

ANYTIME, in ANY ego-based relationship [if We can even call it that] you have "familiarity" you can count on contempt being very close at hand. You will also notice "people" [actually these "fiend" friends] start to take liberties with you. If you "speak up" [catch them at their game].., they often go on the offensive and try to cause you to doubt what you see. Don't doubt. Just "see" it and strive to see if there is "something" in you that "tempted" [the need for "worship" for your own ego] the other party to "start the game". It does take "two to tango" [so to speak].

So to sum up.., being courteous, respectful, humble and unassuming with one another, in Our mind, is a necessary state for us to discover and maintain. I don't know about you but I care not to "play the game". Only prideful, ego, selfish souls requiring [fiend] worship [OR prideful, ego selfish souls NEEDING to worship a god of their making] play that game. And THAT is another aspect of this hell we ALL live in. Let us be done with it. The cat is "out of the bag". Trying to get "worship" is what got us here in the first place. TRUE worship is to be reserved for God alone, as per the First Commandment. 

LLTF,

P.S. Please keep in mind; the ego lives in the illusional/delusional brain THINKING process of the human and "loves" to feed on information. The ego-self can "learn" "words of The Bible" [as an example] and "USE" and quote those "words" to "its" advantage". "It" [the ego] is also very good at "learning" "its" [latest] hero/god in an effort to "puff up" and take on that subject's "persona". Once "learned" "it" can then integrate THAT into the "game". Intellectual "learning" ALWAYS stands in the way to block and prevent UNDERSTANDING. ("And the dark shall never comprehendeth The Light.")

That is why Christ has told you that unless ye be as little children you will NEVER enter the Kingdom.

King of kings' Bible - Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted (born again as your spirit-Being), and [then] become as little children, ye shall NOT enter into the Kingdom of heaven.
18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.
19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the Kingdom of heaven. 

King of kings' Bible - John 13:33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Where I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.
13:34 A new COMMANDment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
13:35 By this shall all [men] KNOW that ye are my disciples, IF ye have love one to another. 

It is EXTREMELY dangerous to stay asleep, LOST in the intellectual brain thinking of your human.
