You have been given Spiritual Gifts or 'Talents' to do work here on Earth. Your job now is to get Wisdom (i.e. study the Book of Proverbs), so you can start to realize or understand what your spiritual gifts are.
And here's the kicker.....
Once you have acknowledged your spiritual gifts, these will then not be gifts anymore....
YOUR GIFTS WILL BECOME POWER.
A constant word you may then find yourself repeating is:
This battle goes on within (hence, the term 'silent war') , but what goes on within, goes on outside, because 'As Above - So Below'.
Understand, The Enemy is afraid. They are scared of us (humans). They know that once humans have hope and faith, we are capable of everything. That is why they throw ridiculous almost laughable 'temptations' at us, be it an over saturation of 'sex' everywhere, greed, blind ambition, etc, etc.
But get this: If a human 'falls' into these 'temptations', that human STILL HAS A WAY OUT, (i.e. still has a choice):
(i) Do nothing to repent (give up) of your actions, die, come back to earth to start all over again, but it will be more difficult (which would really suck).
(ii) Repent (give up those actions and start anew), then you receive forgiveness and through this forgiveness, you get hope - and you already know what we humans do when we have hope.
FACT: 'In very truth I tell you, the man who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs in some other way, is nothing but a thief and a robber. He who enters through the door is the shepherd in charge of the sheep. The door keeper admits him, and the sheep hear his voice; he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. When he has brought them all out, he goes ahead of them and the sheep follow, because they know his voice. They will not follow a stranger; they will run away from him, because they do not recognize the voice of strangers.' So Jesus spoke again: 'In very truth I tell you, I am the door of the sheepfold. The sheep paid no heed to any who came before me, for they were all thieves and robbers. I am the door; anyone who comes into the fold through me will be safe. HE WILL GO IN AND OUT AND FIND PASTURE. - John 10: 1 - 9
This parable tells us that once we have accepted Christ, we immediately have access to the SPIRIT WORLD. We can go in and out and find pasture. This goes to show you that Death is no more. You do not have to die first to gain access to the spirit world.
You see, with your fear of death gone, life unfolds to INFINITE possibilities. But understand, you cannot say you believe death is no more, but still be afraid, because YOUR FEAR IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT. If you are afraid, your spirit is weakened and Our Father is a GOD OF THE STRONG. So cast your fear and worries aside.
Then, after reading all this, you remember all the 'death' in the world. My friend, let the dead be dead, because if you are reading this, you are alive, SO YOU HAVE HOPE. So jump into the action! - Don't miss out on the fun!
Understand, Our Father is SPIRIT. If you ask him for something, He will give it to you. (A spiritual answer for a spiritual request).
EVERYTHING IN PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION IS SPIRITUAL IN ORIGIN. Be it earthquake, flood, lightning, and people! What manifests (or what your senses detect) is just a sign. We all must look beyond the obvious, read
between the lines, overlook no detail - follow everything to it's spiritual source to see The Truth.
Then you will understand why it is a Blessing to be Human (Above and Below).
