Most people just simply do NOT understand the concept of prayer.

Prayer is effective when it is guided by the holy spirit, according to the will of God.

When scripture says "ask anything in my name and it will be given to you" This does NOT mean that just anybody can ask for something and then add "in Jesus name" at the end and then magically have their prayer answered.

Consider the following regarding the role of the Holy Spirit in Prayer.

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

(Romans 8:26-27 ESV)

This tells us three important things.

First prayer is not just about "words"
Indeed the Spirit prays in a manner that is deeper then words.

Secondly, the spirit intercedes (through prayer) according to the will of God.

Thirdly, We in our flesh do not know what to pray for as we ought...


This leads to three inevitable conclusions.

One, Non-Christians do not have the capacity to Pray in the name of Christ.

Two, Even Christians do not have the capacity to Pray in the name of Christ unless it be according to the indwelling spirit of God and further according to the will of God.

Three, effective prayer cannot be controlled by human methods. For only when we are being led in the spirit, will our Prayer be according to Gods Will and in the name of his Son. (which again is not about the words, but about the Will).

From this you should see God cannot be "put to the test" in this manner scientifically or otherwise. We can no more control the Spirit of God then we can control the wind.

Also that Prayer is more about being still and knowing that God is indeed God. That is, Prayer is to help Christians to understand what is indeed Gods Will. Not as some think to Command Gods actions through human efforts.

Much of the confusion regarding Prayer is that too many people Isolate One verse that talks about Prayer in the Bible without considering it in context of the entire revelation of scripture. In other words the entire teaching regarding Prayer is not contained in One verse. You cannot understand it fully without careful study. Most people, Christians included, have not done their homework so to speak.

@ LastProphet527:

There are posts your making on the other thread, about allowing the police (allowing a police state I guess) to be able to leave a young man locked in a cell for 5 days without food and water, where he only survived by drinking his own urine. You were very judgmental on him. I take it you feel God is judgmental and punitive?

I told you I would answer you in this thread, as the very essence and nature of what Love is and what God is, is really important in what frequency a person is vibrating at I guess, how advanced they are in understanding Love, and relates to miracles occurring big and small all the time.

I consider each day to be filled with miracles, love CME's, and have experienced Coucnil above, Family and Teamwork, Higher Self, Dad/Mom in my life, and have only experienced encouragement/humor/joy, so its not just miracles, but daily miracles that can occur. I'm not just referring to if its a person's time to go home or not.

Here was your post and my post in that thread:

@ LastProphet527:



It’s not about having a heart, it’s about every body has a destiny in life, every body has a road to walk upon on, and if it leads to that, so be it. It’s your life, your destiny, your road, your future.

Therefore, to me, on his road of life, on his road of his own destiny...he deserved it. It is his life, it is...his karma, and it is his future that led him to that.


So you believe in karma and that he either deserved it or it occurred due to his actions and level of frequency?

Well, the problem with this is, the police are paid for in a democracy out of tax dollars to uphold virtues (I don't like the world law and also not all legistlation is legal or law, some are crimes and ignorance of the law in this isn't an excuse for we know in our hearts when we're hurting another and basic common law is like unto virtue, thou shalt not harm). We are sharing realities and journeys here and that this occurred without punishment or action yet against the authorities, who have admitted to it occurring but claim they just forgot about him, is something we as citizens have to be on guard against.

But it also has a spiritual connotation, aside from the political. In that there is his frequency level and "karma" and all of ours, and interplay and interact. For example, the bloodlines/mystery school operates with this really twisted belief, (by twisted I mean it was fed them out of ego and their elitist mindsets by negatives and they like it because they feel that they are so much more than us, they earned, by war, murder, rape, stealing, extortion, lies and manipulations, their pile of gold and that God is on their side) that we don't have to help each other, that if you were a murderer in your past life, you would go through murder and suffering in this, be born in Africa or go thorugh pain.

But the problem with that is, if there is a middle management group abusing souls and doing this, is they're not doing the WIll of Love and Goodness. Hitler would learn ever so much more in his next life if he came back as a little girl in a middle class teachers family, that had alot of love. Just saying!

Now another way of looking at that would be, if someone born in poverty was being punished from a past life, by their own soul, not anyone else, but in reality, we truly only LEARN LOVE BY LOVE AND EXPERIENCING COMPASSION, then their plight and lesson is in our hands, really and its all tied in together.

You see we are all TEAMWORK.

No man is an island, and we need to reach each others harsh souls, and start to say, I love you, you know you are really are the Light, do you remember home and how much Love and Goodness, and Soul Shine Family has, and really we all learn Love by Love don't you think, so maybe its best to drop this false program of punishment and start to reach for the Light and Love.


This world is our world, our children inherit our actions or lack of actions in ensuring that we are not living under a corrupt evil system. since we are, there is a lot of work to do, namely we need to roll up our sleeves and get to it.


Law of consequence. They play this crapola all the time. TPTB will even make it happen to people because they set themselves above other and have really judgmental and mean hearts.

In reality, the people inheriting the harsher system were not given free will, are too peaceful to protest violently, and aren't even listened to.

vigilantcitizen.com...

The protest signs are blank , the people have no voice.

OH but then I forgot, these mismanagers of the vineyard who set themselves up as all that, and pat themselves on the back for being so superior in their ruthlessness at stealing wealth and resources from others (and God is on their side and that cosmic laws count, when they don't and only Virtues exist), they feel that if people dont rise up as ruthless as them to get rid of them, they are foolish and deserve punishment.

Twisted. Twisted. Twisted. Twisted. Twisted. Twisted.

God is only Love and Goodness and Does Not Harm.

Sometimes we can put in uncomfortable situations to wake us up more, or we might grow too complacent in the shire, and sometiems Gandalf and little mean dwarves show up and start breaking our plates, and we get pulled into adventrures, but that isn't up the police chief here.

It could be coincidence, but then again, it might not be too. I like to believe that there is a higher power that looks out for us, and I believe that this was a way that he was telling me that everything was going to be alright.

Your comment that God does not "Harm" is not correct.

God will inflict Great harm against those who remain his enemies. There is no refuge from Gods wrath should he see fit to pour it out upon you.

This may not be appealing to you, it may not fit your world view, you may indeed refuse to believe it.

But on that day of days, you can not say that you were not warned. I will bear witness to Gods justice and to his Wrath.

He is also eternal and limitless love to those who are made Holy and Righteous through sanctification. But you can not embrace the latter while at the same time denying the former. You can't just pick and choose the portion of Gods nature that you find agreeable.

Now those were my two comments you quoted, in depth, these are yours.


I found out a little while ago that God has no compassion for the flesh...So, why should I.


Which "god" are you referring too? Is this god someone you have met?

The Highest Love and Goodness in existence for real, loves us very much indeed. Every single hair on our head is counted, and even nurtures and cares for every single animal in existence, the plight of dolphins.

God is Pure Love and Goodness and never harms but helps, teaches, instructs, SHINES. The sun, crystal mirror, SHINES the true and everlasting Light to us, without beginning or ending. That sunlight that warms the planet is LOVE, also its instruction, guidance, colors, flavors, design input.

If you could stand in a sunbeam in space, a cme in space protected, with your brain programs removed, you would see everything, all the infinte channels around us. Colors beyond our imagination.

The Sun is a good parent of the solar system blessing all, those more positively alligned and those more negatively.

Its a hard thing for us to have that unconditional love, we're trying to ride our bikes with the training wheels off. The universe is a matrix, which means womb, and we're being born here. So we're trying to become Family, and it could take a long time.

But from I've got in my soul, is that there is a perfect plan when this level goes up, and even if we all came in, and some got lost in the wrong paths, some even to shadow side, there is a time, when the curtain raises and everyone is healed, somehow, in some way, and then learns from one another.

There is no frequency where Love doesnt care about what is happening, to the children. The Higher Ups, roll up their sleeves and go to the bottom of the trenches and they care very very much.

About every thing, Spirit, Mind, Thoughts, Frequency and Flesh, all of it. This is like the practicum, a 3D board game I was shown, fake fake fakery. It is where we have to work out problems, weaknesses, or after lessons, get zapped without memory.

Even finding out you have weaknesses still is a gift for a soul committed to growing and learning. I see miracles coming by the way, people waking up more.


Do you think the human species deserve not to be obliterated ?


Are you joking! Humans are loving. We have in our body suits, half the coding to be able to think with Love and Higher Frequencies, and half the coding to keep us bound to animal kingdoms and lower.

There are far more loving people here than ever would rape, murder, or seriously harm, and thats despite all the cheating the mismanagers have down in breaking and bending their own concepts of universal laws and their own concepts of the checkerboard floor.

Despite what I think about the bible, there are a few really inspired passages.

Isaiah 28

www.biblegateway.com...
(I don't know if I've chosen the best version, to illustrate what I mean)

This passage is directed to the mismanagers all the way through. I had someone tell me that at the end it is suddenly directed to the people, but no way. The whole chapter has the uniformity of addressing the distortions of the mystery schools.

It says quite a few profound things, and I will paraphrase or interpret.

--it says that due to their frequency, (wealth, elitism, wars, murders, inequality, I believe they mention drunkenness, yes drunk on the fruits of the labors of others), they did not meet with Angels. They're pineal gland awakening was a frequency match.

They met with the dead, ie shadow. And shadow lies. They are not off the hook and wolves serving Goodness and Love for balance.

---That their underground dumbs won't hold water will rush in, ie. their secret hiding places at tax payers expense.

---That all of their contracts with the dead (selling our souls out) are null and voided. (I already said there is no cosmic laws only virtues)

---It brings up their laws and the backbreaking burdens they put on people.

---Then they are asked this: Do you till a field (the hardest job) more than once to get a crop off (passed students)? Answer you do it once.

---How instead do you get people out quickly, by modeling the truth in righteousness and being Love and Goodness. Do you see the leaders all acting like Christ and Buddha and living equally like the early Christians.

Null and Voided. I like that. Prime Directive is To Free The World!

Are they going to obliterate humans?

Not God! God loves us and everyone in the universe. God is Love and no one is ever ever going to be left behind in the end.

Get rid of or upgrade the school. Hopefully and ASAP. We learn best in Joy.

I love people. And they're not getting past my frequency and caring to pull of anything of the kind. They being Shadow, not God. God never harms.

If a god does that, that is something with horns. PERIOD. God is completely 100% Higher Frequency Love and cannot harm.

Those are the clues, whenever you read or are told something that is not loving, talks of smiting or wars, sounds like a leader here or some harsh mind there, then you know THAT ITS NOT GOD, and you're asked to weight eveyrthing you are seeing against your Love inside that is pure. So everyone here needs to work at shining their souls up so they have the depth, breadth, sensitivity, gentleness and goodness, purity of the love they were born knowing.

And start to use discernment.

So your deduction is that I was a murderer in my past life?

God never did any thing for anyone.

Faith in God may have helped people get through tough times, but God never actually did anything for anyone, those people did it themselves, every single time.

God cannot harm? He might not be able to harm directly, but more harm has been done in His name than in that of the Devil.

Read your Bible. You will find that God compels people to do WAY more harm to themselves and others than the Devil ever does.

Some of my prayers have been answered. And, if you think about it, so have some of yours.

When I was young, I treated prayer as if I were writing a letter to Santa Claus. "God, give me this, give me that, make this happen, change that, give me what I want."

Very occasionally, I got exactly what I prayed for. And, y'know, it's true that "More tears are shed over answered prayers." Frequently, what I had asked for -- which I asked for because I thought it would make me happy, didn't make me happy or at least not enough nor for very long. Before much time passed, I was praying just as hard for something else, some other favor, that I thought would make me happy.

And I bet the same thing happened to you. Except, unless we think hard, we forget about all those prayers that were answered but didn't make us really happy when we got what we asked for.

It took me a VERY LONG TIME to figure out that maybe the things I thought I wanted were not the things that would really make me happy.

It turns out that God is not quite like Santa nor like Amazon.com. God has plans of His own and although we play a part in His plans, His plans seldom involve distributing new cars or whatever I thought I wanted.

When I was in my 50s I changed my prayers, and at the time I thought I had made a great spiritual advance. I started just praying "God, make me happy with what I already have." I figure God would touch my brain or something and then I'd be content and satisfied with all the stuff I had already accumulated. It had a sort of Buddhist quality to it.

But being happy is not necessarily an incentive to get with God's program. Someone told me that to be happy all the time I should stay home, stay in my pajamas, and watch cartoons on TV all day, every day.

In my old age I developed some really bitter feelings about some other people. I made plans that were decidedly unadmirable but that I thought would bring me some satisfaction. I was focusing on this scheme, fully aware that it was evil and something I could never brag about. Then I prayed that God give me a new attitude. Just that, a new attitude. I didn't require a single molecule of gold or silver to be moved, not a penny added to my pocket or taken from someone else's.

And suddenly I got a new attitude. I didn't feel the compulsion to do the evil thing I had planned so thoroughly. You can come up with all sorts of non-religious explanations for this change, but it happened when I asked for it and when I needed it. I can still feel the old temptations - it's not as if I had amnesia or something - but I prefer the new attitude because it's less destructive -- to me and my psyche -- and I figure that, if God gave me this new attitude because of my prayer, then I had better adhere to the new attitude and not reject it and go back to the old scheme because that would be a rejection of this valuable gift from God and God might thereafter ignore all my future prayers.

I agree with this completely, Unity. Source understands the necessity of polar energies, and that both positive and negative must exist for the type of soul progression that we are working toward.

The Homo Sapiens lack of understanding, along with our ill-advised self-imposed safeguards stemming centuries into the past, in this area has lead to every error that has snowballed into the madness and chaos that torments today's world.

Nothing short of a global overhaul, whatever form that may take, will bring us back onto the right path, or show us what we need to do. Diversity has lead to a wide range of perspectives, and so it will take something drastic to show us what needs to happen.

I'm hoping whoever steps in knows what they are doing...and I hope someone DOES step in.

It's true that many "religious types" think that science and belief in God are incompatible, but the numbers of believers who feel they are compatible are growing daily. It's too much to get into in a brief post, but the perceived incompatibility is built largely on misunderstood and mistranslated Bible passages. The whole "young earth" movement is one example, it's founded completely on mistranslations. The Bible doesn't say the earth is young, but a few religious leaders decided it did and swayed their followers to believe likewise. Unfortunately religious dogma (as well as scientific dogma) largely prevents any meaningful discussions on the symbiotic relationship of science and belief from taking place, there are some amazing developments there but the two factions are so utterly dug in that the middle ground is a total minefield. The truth is in the middle ground waiting to open up like a flower and reveal itself, but no one can go in there without getting bombed by one side or the other.


They are caught up in ego and duality. Duality that should be avoided because it do not bring understanding of others. The more openminded you become the more you can discover. Things that might seem impossible at one time in your life might be proven to you later in life.

There was a scientist in a televisionshow that was talking that people should be openminded but sceptical and was concerened about superstition. I am myself sceptical most times but then this man was told about Chakras from a hindu and called it Mumbo Jumbo or something like that. At that moment I laughed my ass of at the situation. The so called expert of what is true/reality have no clue that Chakras is real becasue he have not experianced them himself like I have. So if I listen to what the scientific community have understood then what I feel in my body is not there and an illusion. Since it is very physical and have change my body from high maintanence to low maintanence (do not need to work out anymore to feel healthy) I do not doubt that I know more of how the body really works from meditation than this person on television. But that person knows things I do not. We are all different and have had different experiances.

As to wether or not God answers your prayer largely depends upon what it is that you're asking for and why. Most people approach God with the wrong atittude. Biggest mistake is to believe that God is masculine. Personally I have had many positive results from my prayers. Jesus said that we need not be asking God for anything, because God knows about our needs long before we ask. So instead of asking for things why not just say to God that you are simply putting your self into her hand. Jesus also said that if we pray in public our prayers will be ignored by God. Thus Jesus said that we should pray in private where no one will know that we have been praying. Sitting on the toilet might be a good place to pray ? See if that improves things for you.

The law that I live by and which is holding us all bonded is called PRAECEPTAE CAELENIUM (tm). I did not read it in a book. You will not find it in any book. It was revealed to me by audio clairvoyance during the celebrations of the New Millennium in 2000. Summed up it basically means no sex no drugs and no violence. (1) From eternity to eternity, infinity to infinity, there be the one absolute. The One True God. Her names are many but she be the one true God there be no other God. The one judge there be no other judge. (2) La Deus Nostra, Notre Dame, Our Lady, The Holy Spirit, the cause the maker Cosmica. (3) Angelic powers of truth and beauty and righteousness be sure to be loving Her Holiness Above with all your mind and with all your heart and with all your strength. (4) So as to be pleasing to Her Holiness Above therefore do not be serving the masculine. (5) Do not be and do not allow masculinity into positions of government. (6) Honour and respect the virgin pureness of the christae. (7) Honour and respect the Immaculate Conception [parthenogenesis] reproductive process of the christae. (8) Do not fornicate or adulterate or sodomize. (9) Do not bully or torture or murder. (10) Do not lie. (11) Do not steal. (12) Do not be covetous. (13) Do not be jealous. Copyright NGL(c)2000.

He who trusts in violence to be his security cannot speak that he trusts in God to be his security.
