Default Re: Hello, I'm Ataraxian. I once believed I was part of God's special remn

Welcome Artaraxian,

I think very few of us , upon leaving the LC, have a pure, secure relationship with God & His Word.

While I never lost my faith in Christ, in the Father and the Holy Spirit, I did not understand their functions in the Godhead. (I have a much, MUCH better understanding of the 3 in ONE while sometimes speaking to the Holy Spirit, sometimes to the Father but mostly communicating with the SON...and yet all THREE are ONE. I can not possible communicate with God our Heavenly Father without going through JESUS and I cannot possibly communicate with Jesus without the LIGHT, the encouragment, the Voice, the illumination of the Holy Spirit. It may seem 'complex' but it isn't at all. They are not seperate 'gods'. They are ONE GOD.

BUT in my journey to get where I am NOW in my relationship with JEHOVAH GOD, I veered off the 'straight & narrow'. I dabbled with new age 'thinking'. I found some TRUTH that gelled with my spirit. I listened to people like Deepak Chopra and Dwayne Dwyer...people like that...I always still kept my heart on JESUS nevertheless. But some of the things they said, helped me understand my struggles and gave me insight on how to pray to JESUS, the Son of the Most High God..our Redeemer, our Friend, our Saviour and our Deliverer.

As time went on, the Precious Holy Spirit of Jesus, the Spirit of God, taught me the power of repentence, forgiveness, the Blood of the Lamb, the Word of God. He healed my broken soul, and healed my wounded soul. He turned my mourning into dancing and restored the Joy of the LORD in me. His JOY truly is my Strength. Not only because the Bible says it is. I KNOW it is.

The fact you're here Atar, means you have a rich, unmoveable Golden Treasure deep inside of you. You're not going to let that go. You simply don't know YET how to spend it and invest it to make you RICHER.

Our spiritual journey which affects our soul and even mortal bodies is a step by step process. But don't let go of JESUS' Hand. And in time, you'll be the person GOD created you to be !...a king and a priest unto HIM, shining, glowing, filled with JOY unspeakeable FILLED with God's Glory all around you, coming from within you.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
(Luke 21:36)
