The Conclusion of All Things
Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s ALL.
Easy to say, yet impossible to do on one’s own …
When you are a seeker of truth, your path leads to love. Love is what you desire to experience, feel and give. Once you taste true love; you long to think, act and live in its purity with every breath for you’ve experienced the perfection, power, and majesty of it. Think of how many songs, shows, books, and poems have been written about love. When you seek Truth, in that Truth you find a love far purer than what you’ve seen or heard of before. As you explore it, you learn its dimensions and that it’s clothed in honor, truth, wisdom, kindness, trustworthiness, the deepest of care, and much more. You begin to understand the depth of 1 Corinthians 13 that testifies to this love.
After many and multiple attempts to live in a state of complete loving-kindness with yourself and others, what you discover is you cannot. As you continue to seek, you learn the reasons why; the lies you hold as truth (faulty perceptions of reality) and your extreme limited understanding. To truly love, thus abide in complete honor and kindness toward yourself and others, is only possible with a thorough perception of truth from every side in every situation. For example, you would have to see with crystal clarity into the soul of another to know what that soul best needs at that moment. You would have to see into their past and their future. The right thoughts, concepts, words and acts would have to come to mind. When you realize you can’t even do this with yourself; how can you do it with another? Your intentions are good; yet you are like one stumbling around in the darkness hurting yourself and others. You simply cannot see as you need to. Romans 7:15-16, Jonah 4:11
A Creator of Love
Once you come to understand the significance of this pure loving-kindness that would make this creation function as it should; then you know it was fashioned in love, thus its Creator is love. This leads you on a journey into seeking this Great Spirit from which love flows. In time, you discover you must surrender your self-will; making decisions of your own mind, and be unified to the Creator’s mind; for this ultimate intelligence knows all and can guide you perfectly. It knows what you cannot on your own. It becomes your eyes to see. It’s the light in the darkness.
Along the way, you gain awareness of your desperate need for this Supreme Mind so that all your thoughts, choices, and actions can be in loving-kindness. You come to understand you require this Spirit to completely govern and rule you, and this is exactly what you want. When you experience the love that is within this Spirit, a love that is truth and wisdom because it knows what’s best in every situation; you learn this is exactly what your journey in this earthen vessel is for; you have to want to be a part of the Spirit of Truth to live in love as you long to do. Love desires to love.
One with the Creator
The only way to live in complete truth/love is to be a part of The Truth/Love. To live another’s truth, you have to forsake following “your” truth and embrace the other. Because you know that Great Spirit is love, you also know there is a way to abide in perfect love, for that is what love desires. This Great Spirit of Truth/love, the Creator, is love and therefore makes a way for His creation to abide in love.
What follows next is learning how to be united to this Spirit of Truth. To embrace The Truth you have to able to commune with the Spirit of Truth that is beyond, yet in, this creation. You have to learn to communicate spirit to spirit; to “see” and “hear” within the spiritual realm. This Spirit teaches all who come to it, how to become one with it. And when you find this treasure; you forsake all else because you discover this is immortality and abundant life.
From the Beginning Forward
Adam and Eve went their own way and created death that spread to all mankind. Through “birth-pangs”, life coming out of pain, they would learn obedience. However, to be truly obedient in love, they learned they would have to not only commune with their Father, Creator, but be a part of Him. Hebrews 5:6-8 This is the lesson they had to learn so that they could come to their Father in all understanding and give up their self-will for His will to govern them for eternity. Yes, they would have to willingly and in all understanding give up their self-will forever.
As their offspring, we walk the same path; to learn obedience in love, thus, to come to the same conclusion; we need to be governed by the Spirit of Truth, our Eternal Father. Therefore, we need to be one with Him. John 17:21 This is what The Christ taught, demonstrated, and made possible; being the first among many who would become sons of God. Romans 8:14
All that I described is the true repentance. Now is the time for repentance; to diligently seek to live by the Spirit of Truth, which you can only do if it becomes a part of you. If you never leave your ways, you can never go a new way. Learn to commune with the Spirit of Truth; and everlasting abundant life will follow. The gate has been opened.
Matthew 3:2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!
1 Corinthians 14:15 What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.

Hi Rachel,..i hope you sitting down,..for a change im not going to disagree with any of your post,…:)
we can never boast of ourselves because its The Father, by His Spirit, leads us to His Son, Our Wonderful Teacher,Who in turn leads us by The Holy Spirit in Truth,..and as you said its impossible to do on our own,like we cannot live by bread alone,..but by every Word of God,..which is Truth,..we must love Truth,if we Worship in spirit God Almighty.
and i know i have pushed for clarity on the use of your ‘spirit of christ’,whom i prefer to call, The Spirit of Messiah,i know it might not much different,..but…if you apply to Scripture,has a very different,..hmm,..paints a different picture/uncovers a another layer,..especially,when dealing with the Prophets,..
certainly not to take away the great importance of wearing, The Fathers Armour,..all to often,and i will speak personally as myself,..putting on the clothes/spirit/mirror image of Our Teacher, Col 3 12-17,…and the bind them altogether,with love …………………..making sure we cast of the old clothes in verse 8-9,…
Love,that comes from walking in Truth,of course,gives a rest to our souls from the deceiving ‘love’ taught by this world in its many different subtle forms…….of course True Love will always be seen by True Charity,…just as false love will been seen as false charity.
With the Finger of Wisdom,pointing always to The Prophets of Old,which point straight back to the times we live,and are about to hopefully live through,..for those with an ear and eyes,..John The Baptister cannot be overlooked,..or even every word wrote about him,over studied.
he was in the belly of a woman,and leaped with joy in that womb, who travailed and gave birth,..while her husband was silence,..and he john,came with a message same then as it is today!….just before it started to happen!
