When a DISCIPLE of the RESURRECTED Jesus Christ gets to the root cause of their "current problem", one will REALIZE that it has already been solved.
The only "problem" the disciple HAD was the unawareness of Jesus Christ's RESURRECTION FROM DEATH. Once the DISCIPLE accepts by FAITH that Jesus Christ DID RESURRECT from the crucifixion, the Holy Spirit PROVES IT.
FAITH is key to seeing "signs and wonders" and becoming a TRUE BELIEVER in the RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ.
We have never had a problem that was not solved by the Holy Spirit, we only believed that we did.
We must also accept that Jesus is not dead because we were bad.
THEREFORE, He can hear and does listen to our prayers. The confusion about Jesus's whereabouts stems from the false belief in death.
"Death" is a thought. Nothing more than that. However, although it is not more that a thought you give that thought power over you ONLY by believing in it. ALL DEATH IS PAST, IT IS OVER!
Belief in death is withdrawn as s disciple REALIZES "the future" has always been imagined.
THEREFORE, the past is no more than a perception. The Truth is FIRST REJECTED by the mind as UNBELIEVABLE because we are afraid of the truth, blindly believing that we are a body. However, the truth is, there is NOTHING TO FEAR. Love reveals Itself to the DISCIPLE. Love is the willingness to unconditionally forgive no matter what the circumstance or event BECAUSE it is Not eternal.
Jesus Christ gave us the greatest example of Love (unconditional forgiveness) known to man, and asks HIS DISCIPLES TO follow His lead, under far less extreme circumstances.
Love is the Answer.
Nonviolence our last resort.
He Guides us,
Bro. David and Sis. Jane
