Gladness, Simplicity, And Praise

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Acts chapter 2:

38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.”

41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.

42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.

43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.

44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common,

45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.

46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,

47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

We do not have to be Biblical scholars to be blessed by FATHER.  When we realize the true nature of walking and being led by The Holy Spirit, we begin to experience extreme joy and gladness.  We can’t help but praise Our Heavenly Father for Who HE is and what HE has done in our lives.  We become grateful and begin trusting IN HIM to supply our needs.  As a result, we will experience favor with all the people in which we come in contact.  I have experienced this Truth many times over the years as people are led to do things which benefit us whether they realize it or not.

The believers began the “de-clutter” process and sold possessions and goods, taking the proceeds and assisted those in need.  If you were to empty out the storage units in the U.S. and sold the contents, I suspect an abundance of needs would be met.  When we fully walk in Agape Love, possessions no longer rule us and our focus is toward helping others rather than accumulating and enriching soulish passions.

Agape Love leads us toward simplicity and frees up time to become a blessing to others.  It does not require us to seek out complexity which enslaves mankind.  Technology is a great example of complexity enslaving us.  Just how many passwords must we remember if we fully embrace all the technology thrown at us?  Mystery Babylon wants us to no longer write checks of carry cash to pay for goods and services.  Why?  It is all about control.  They want to know every transaction we complete and charge us 1 to 3% for handling the transaction.  The store adds this cost to your purchase so you don’t realize the true cost.  On the other hand, Agape Love moves toward simplicity of life.  When Mystery Babylon falls, their complexities will disintegrate and we will look back at all the unnecessary and subtle enslavement heaped upon mankind.  We will give FATHER the deserved praise for setting us free from the bands of wickedness.  We will be exceeding joyful in our praise!
