1 Peter 1:3
Blessed Be The GOD and FATHER of our LORD Jesus Christ,
which According to His Abundant Mercy has Begotten us again
unto a lively hope by the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,...

A simple principle of which to joyfully be aware serves as a strong anti depressant and is a boost to self esteem, in that GOD, with Love for us, Fashioned each one of us with unique worth and special potential.
In the world is often encountered a myriad of strong anti self esteem mechanisms put and held naturally in place through lack or no knowledge of truth, no acknowledgment of truth, and lack of positive change; yet there remains a refuge and rest from this to the people of GOD, at present and potentially.
Who are the people of GOD? Can we identify them as being of one group or religion, sect or denomination? .. Absolutely not, and this vain assumption is and has been a problem of disunifying dissension and even violence; for we all have but One GOD, the problem being that He is not always properly understood.
Rather than relying on organization, we individually should rely on truth and its principles and ultimately, skilled and righteous discernment in plain common sense.
We are wonderfully Made, for we all have potential for that Gift of skillfulness and capability, and a real self esteem comes with laboring in this skill and trying to perfect it, us.
"Gift of The Resurrection"
Eagerly entering into this realm, we find the instant Reward of life and vitality that is found in them that love what they do, in a limitless seduction of progressive ideas, which is a Gift of The Resurrection of Christ, in Everlasting and Unlimited Power and Glory of The Living GOD. There is understanding and an entrance into this most satisfying, gratifying life experience in lively hope and real purpose, and in the enrichment of realization that we exist not for one, but compassionately for all, which is not only Amazing, but in scope, profoundly uplifting.
Revelation 3:21; Hebrew 3:7
To him that overcomes will I Grant to Sit with Me in My Throne,
even as I also Overcame, and AM Set Down with My FATHER In His Throne.
Wherefore as the Holy Ghost Says, To day if you will hear His Voice.
We first need care and find importance in this search for Truth and understanding of GOD in the lauded one place worthy to find It: the Holy Written Word of GOD. We don't need unanimity of consensus to believe this, because it is self proven to each one who chooses to explore it in this stable way, personally; for we are in His Mind, individually and uniquely dealt with according to the vast hereditary and situational differences in and among us all. We are of the one human race, but separately and distinctly different, and this is the great challenge to our necessarily sought after unity.
But in all of our differences, amazingly we can settle on one extremely fortunate, foundational and universal Truth: we are subject to One Good GOD and His Law.
"Listen and Discern"
For The Word of GOD Is Quick, and Powerful,
and Sharper than any two edged sword,
Piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow, and is a Discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Listening, aha, that is good! We are free to act on it, to continue to listen, and listen again, for it is there, in our conscience, and it demands faithful listening unto the faithful action of His listeners
I Peter 1:5, 9
Who are kept by the Power of GOD through faith
to Salvation ready to be Revealed in the last time.
Receiving the end of your faith, even the Salvation of your souls.
In accepting Truth and acting on principle, we've gained good; but we humans face centuries of the stigma of our transgressions, and witness the reaping of that constantly; as well as His Merciful Salvation.
Wherefore, Holy brethren,
partakers of the Heavenly Calling,
consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; ...
And very simply, GOD, In His Mercy, Sent us His Beloved Son, as Divine Emissary of His Kingdom, to Be and Teach among us, which we must concede, was a Sacrifice in itself.
Seeing then that we have a Great High Priest,
that IS Passed into the Heavens,
Jesus The Son of GOD,
let us hold fast our profession.
He Spoke of the Way and How we could end our drastic sufferings: love one another, evident kindness to all, even our enemies, for ending the vicious cycle of violence; Emphasized the Golden Rule and Heroic, Merciful action on behalf of all, our families and neighbors.
Of course it seemed strange and contrary to some, to not naturally hate and retaliate, but It Is the Answer in what may seem to be extreme measures for extreme times.
There is reserved a certain latitude in the Shouting and Warnings in GOD's Law to and for brutal transgressors, which addresses the grave iniquity of offensive aggression and innocent blood guiltiness; of which the temporal Word indeed departs from the Ideal in Grace, but by necessary reason of Mercy, becomes Justified.
I Peter 1:25
But The Word of The LORD Endures forever.
We fight transgression on behalf of Mercy. It would not be sufficient for oneself, but in that Unity, We Are Victorious.
I Peter 1:25
And This Is the Word which by the Gospel is Preached to you.
Of which Salvation the Prophets have enquired and searched diligently,
who prophesied of the Grace that should come to you:...
There remains therefore a rest to the people of GOD.
If your children will keep My Covenant and My Testimony
that I shall Teach them, their children shall also sit upon your throne for evermore.
We personally face, firstly and hopefully, good, kind opinions from our parents, which have a significant effect on self; and others of siblings, friends, neighbors, co workers, acquaintances, etc., which can present pleasantness as well as hurtful difficulties.
Subsequently, from caring parents, we must expect guiding criticism; and if they hopefully expound truth, we can in trust receive it. If not, for the discerning, there is precarious conflict.
Caught in this conflict, we then face the challenge of both disagreeing with our parents, yet honoring them; and this is difficult and potentially a harmful attack on self and esteem, in the struggle to keep the Law under harsh and unfair circumstances:
in trying to be true to oneself and one's belief of truth, rather than untruthful, vain communications, of which we must disagree through Righteous discernment.
I Peter 1:16
Because It Is Written, Be you Holy; for I AM Holy.
"THE SALVATION Of KNOWLEDGE"
If a Good Commandment or Precept Is Written by The FATHER: Merciful, Loving, Kind, Useful, Purposeful, Saving, all of which ARE His Glory, then Beloved, we are free to receive this.
I Peter 1:22
Seeing you have purified your souls in obeying the Truth through the Spirit
unto unfeigned love of the brethren,
see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently:
Criticism is undue and irrelevant unless it is based in the Truth of GOD, with the purpose of building up rather than debasing, and unfortunately it can be rarely, sincerely found and forthcoming.
The best way for children to have a healthy self esteem is to find it in nurturing, sincere care and love from their beginning from the parents; and to go on in life to the realization that our Good GOD and FATHER In Heaven Offers us all the Ultimate in that Role.
Not forgotten, for the less fortunate, this is, though a tougher way to go, available and found not only through the marginally supportive, but through the Salvation of knowledge of Truth and belief in one's own special Place in the Loving Heart of GOD, in His Grace and that Magnificent Inheritance through Him that awaits one and all.
Jeremiah 3:15; I Peter 1:4; Hebrews 6:11; Colossians 1:23
And I will Give you Pastors according to Mine Heart,
which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
To an Inheritance Incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away,
Reserved In Heaven for you.
And we desire that every one of you do show the same diligence
to the full assurance of hope unto the end: ...
If you continue in the faith grounded and settled,
and be not moved away from the Hope of the Gospel,
which you have heard,
and which was Preached to every creature which is under Heaven;
whereof I Paul am Made a Minister; ...
For them that find neither supportive, truthful people nor the walk to Salvation, there can be hurt and desolation, depression and sorrow.
We need all have understanding of His Good Commandments and His Loving and Merciful Precepts to Salvage us from that fate; and subsequently our own role and responsibility for others in this need.
Perhaps many parents have not fully realized that: this teaching of Truth in GOD forms a strong and healthy self esteem in their children, without destructive vanities that can be counter constructive in the end to one's self and esteem.
But, Beloved, we are persuaded better things of you,
and things that accompany Salvation, though we thus speak.
People should feel good about themselves in that Special Way that only GOD can Give for a healthy and humbled self esteem. Persons that have managed to tap into their very own unique, GOD Given Inheritance, reserved and waiting, can be very productive and happy, even in a difficult, rejective world, with the broadest positive outlook and an innate Gift for production and contribution shared for the sake of all others
For GOD Is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love,
which you have shown toward His Name,
in that you have ministered to the Saints, and do minister.
Indeed, the Inheritance comes not without the responsibility of reciprocation, for the sake of all others.
Remember Jesus' Sermon of the talents. The Gifts of Godly Inheritance must be shared and dispersed in which they are among people, increased for the inspiration of others. Whatsoever we can do, we need do, plainly presented within that venue to accomplish this.
We should not say that we have a God Given Gift if we share it in an ungodly way. That simply does not wash and is false, and serves not His Purpose.
I Peter 1:15
But as He which has Called you IS Holy,
so be you Holy in all manner of conversation; (presentation;)
The best source for this should come, upheld by the Written, Holy, Good Word of GOD, from His pastors that conform to It and diligently serve to express His Truth and to maintain knowledge of His Glory.
To all those who can realize that we live in a seriously faulted and needful world, this Purpose in GOD's Plan and in our Inheritance and responsibility, makes tremendous sense and should be considered and enacted in all confident seriousness.
Hebrews 4:10, 11
For he that is entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works,
as GOD did from His.
Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest,
lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Many out in the work-a-day business world find it difficult to be direct in the Word of Hope, Salvation and GOD's Irrefutable Victory because of other's unbelief, individual and organized intolerance and prejudice.
The Truth of GOD Comes through a range of Written or verbalized speech, which therein, has in itself the Power to be productive; and also from one's own example of righteous living to which some may envy, and may hopefully aspire.
Hebrew 4:12; 3:8
For The Word of GOD Is Quick, and Powerful,
and Sharper than any two edged sword,
Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
Them that choose harsh violence as a way to be heard of their grievances, use a harmful and violating method that is ultimately also self destructive. These should reconsider both their motives and their methods if they have an honest desire to improve their situations and truly remedy their grievances.
If there is nothing more in motive and method, however, than to hate, kill and be killed, out of desired offense and concept of issues like enacted rivalry and revenge, that is a horse of another color; significantly present in hard heartedness and remorseless mercilessness.
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief,
in departing from The Living GOD.
But to the GOD of Mercy and of Whom all things are Possible, to be sure, there are Ways that can be found within the perimeters of compliance to Mercy, when we first Righteously set that in itself as a goal.
I've no doubt that: that goal to uphold mercy, when striven for, is the key to significantly diminishing much of the ills of mankind.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit Says to the churches:...
We should never restrict requested dialogue to any engaging contingency, except that the rules should demand decency and be void of hateful bias and threat of violence, if anything at all positive and productive is to be accomplished with other than results of destructive and further chaos.
Again, nothing positive can be accomplished, if there is no belief in Righteousness of Purpose, with nothing more in motive and method, out of a concept of issues, than to hatefully kill and be killed, significantly present in hard heartedness and irresponsible, remorseless mercilessness.
Hebrews 3:19, 13
So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
But exhort one another daily, while it is Called To day;
lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
...To him that overcomes will I Give to eat of the tree of life,
which is in the midst of the Paradise of GOD.
"Strong Meat of Mercy"
But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age,
even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
No true peace and happiness can be achieved which serves not the Strength of The GOD of Salvation toward life: Mercy for peace and happiness; but rather serves the one of poisonous evil and violent destruction stubbornly brought to the table, maintained with refusal to reach compromise and mercifully transform.
People who feel their complaints genuine and valid should consider and reconsider their possibly self based motives and which outcome they are truly after. After real consideration, they may significantly find that their efforts could be put to far better use.
Wherefore as the Holy Ghost Says,
"To day if you will hear His Voice."
Come to Me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will Give you rest.
For all of us, there IS Indeed a Good and Loving, Caring GOD and Savior, Who at this very moment Is Compassionately Reaching out to all the children of men with grievances and hardships, for Salvation from a world that for too many, has offered a desolate, impoverished, cold and uncaring existence and subsequent mean circumstances and suffering infirmities.
For we have not an High Priest which cannot be
Touched with the Feeling of our infirmities;
but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Let Him Take your hand, and Lift you up, and Heal you and Love you and Give you that which awaits you: your very own Magnificent Inheritance that He Fashioned for you; and the needed real strength against the adversities that you will be Made to overcome.
"IN FAITH, LIVE"
Let us therefore come boldly to the Throne of Grace, that we may obtain Mercy,
and find Grace to Help in time of need.
And you will fully realize that you are Cared for and can be well Esteemed, and there is truly no place for any harmful and destructive methods to achieve what should be your true goal of your peace and happiness; ....
and in faith, live.
I Peter 1:21, 23
Who By Him do believe in GOD,
that Raised Him Up from the dead,
and Gave Him Glory; that your faith and hope might be in GOD.
Being Born again, not of corruptible seed, but of Incorruptible,
by the Word of GOD, which Lives and Abides for ever.
Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His Sight:
but all things are naked and opened unto the Eyes of Him with Whom we have to do.
I am praying for each and every one of you;
please pray for all and for me.
GOD Love and Everlastingly Bless you and yours,
Gerry M. Kaye
