Start of the real belief. Humble yourself like a child.
Faith like a child to be the greatest. A child accepts something with Absolute Faith until proven wrong. What other option is there really, with steadfast promises of protection and the gift of our souls continuation?
PAST NOTE 2013/14: (Apologizes for hair, lack of concern of clothing/appearance, soft spoken communication style in this video that is a bit long winded, or whatever outer appearance you judge by that causes the legitimacy of what I'm saying not to get through because that's the point of this site and I actually care.)
Matthew 18:3-4 "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."
You may be a fully grown and mature adult. You may be successful in the "real world," but that doesn't mean being open minded to a necessary concept in line with our instincts of survival, isn't worth looking into if enough pieces of the puzzle fit into your agreement on appropriateness of the beliefs of the ‘thereafter.’ The miracles and the old covenant directions, served to show the severity of the warnings and the expectations to create the conditioned reform desired to mold the masses as history has shown played out before our eyes. Like anything, there is a learning curve and once you grasp the expectation it becomes easier.
God likes people seeking, gaining knew truths; the bible says 'believe' and go from there. Prove this gospel right, then prove why you can make your conversation right for everyone in all situations and different circumstances. If it all adds up, you can stand by your conviction that it’s worth it because of the virtuous cause – your faith is like a child in the face of unknowns, holding true to your belief because there really isn’t anything truer. God lets us play hard, though that’s speaking about mankind and the total masses.
If eternal implications are ever so true (despite the disdain that comes from a God who allowed vessels of wrath to then live in a worse state than the vessels of God) than it's a good investment (entry factor of 7.5 billion plus people becomes a reality, yes some minds may never have developed distinguished integrity, it's a risk not to believe just as much as it's a risk socially except ‘what does it matter to forfeit your soul for when future life rests on an easy burden and light task of following the codes and knowing the infractions like anything else). If you can, try and humble yourself to the possibility that faith in a God who is real, who makes life worth it, is a necessary aspect of your life that really can be for your own good. Plus is it that bad, that the one God and the One begotten son desire you to acknowledge the glory of the difference in power and total capacity? We’re made in that image for a reason, I look at it as a plus when it says many heirs will go into the glory state of existence.
It's complete information from start to finish (directions of the times and sociology factors) and at some point we aren't completely free to the system of survival and better living. It’s not unrealistic to have a few extra mental expectations from the creator, and some people get left out because others want to learn better without them – God isn’t right around us so we get the best organic learning to be conditioned at 1000’s of experience verse learning it as if they were right in the garden. We are more complex and even though we don’t look at diet as immediate changing of our bodies, everything is fractioned out if you think cellular total numbers which may, even most likely – the angels know to the trillionth. Say that 10 years ago and I’m laughing stock, but a trillionth now isn’t so unreal.
To even pray requires a meditation speaking focus skill, and it takes humility to pray towards a widely regarded God of speculation and say 'if you did create everything, then I'm thankful regardless of my gripes that you may be forcing extra control towards me and my decisions right now.'
A young child, when he or she listens, doesn't first know any better but to humble themselves and accept something with absolute faith from an adult or older person. It may seem a bit out there from the logic you've become familiar with in your everyday life, to stop your thought to pray or make an extra effort to someone as a 'religious duty' out of respect to God but what other option is there unless you’ve got messed up meditational rivalry or bad patience? Let God figure out the rivalry and the neglect, the sharing and giving of the here and now.
Not always an easy decision to invest in the betterment of yourself in active gospel knowledge, when having to believe where faith is tested vigorously on a daily bases by desires and other people’s expectations; in a conceptual world of ease and flow contrary to the extra credit we give to ‘worship God in the Spirit’ where we condition ourselves to be receptive to the intertwined value of intricate spiritual connection between people and their causes. You first have to believe the bible to be an authentic source of writing for a purpose to help us know our creator and His intentions. Instead of thinking of all the reasons you know why the bible seems to be outdated or wrong (disbelief), take a step forward with child like faith and TRUST there is a reason behind these writings that not only ring true on the most important aspects of life (relationship expectation) but has played such a dividing role (both productive and unproductive) throughout the generations of adherence to it's expectations of 'well the bible would say this.’ Unfortunately you have to partially acknowledge some people will go to a less good place of existence. In the 10 year time period, if conditioned faith reaches steadiness, then we can test some elements of a more optimistic hell. ‘CHASM’ ---> (If linear belief speculation permits)
If the bible is the source of understanding (widest material scope) given to this world (If God created the world he would probably intentionally put something into existence to help guide the missing links) to know the intentions of our Creator, and give answers to the implausible factors (miracle factor). So pleasing God (which is impossible to do without faith) is the smartest thing you can do. The bible stresses to put forth your best ability, though it's constantly about accepting others and living in a state of grace. Remember prophetic verses were specifically intended to sway the future and keep the main expectations. Peter said, in regards to the future prophetic element of the bible that ‘at what time and what season the prophets in their varying mentalities preached or forward taught their crowds, was indicative of the Spirit of Christ in them at that time, because they knew how the story had to go and the right state of living between each other that will be inevitable.’ 1P111
Lets start simple on some basics. Even the smallest act of kindness 'going the extra mile' (Matthew 5:41) for someone can go a long way in God's eyes, plus the heavenly reward aspectis the reality. I'm glad God shows His heart to us by requiring we show heart to others in how we treat them. What if God didn't require we treat each other nicely, would the war situation of past history be worse? It's a conversation.. There's some rude people, people!
Instruction #1 - You are accountable to act and carry yourself according to a purpose and code that God demands from you during this stretch of existence on earth. When it's all said and done, Jesus Christ - the appointed boss and leader (we always have to report to a boss and leader, it's an aspect of creation) will judge the life we live. When we learn to follow the code correctly through life experience and the trials and sufferings we face, we gain new meaning, purpose, and understanding in life, not to mention we build up rewards in heaven - the everlasting life to come because our souls are immortal.

Luke 16:10 “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much" (Small acts of kindness and of real time sacrifice (real giving) > than money steward neglecting to see the punitive damages of another) and
Matthew 25:23 "Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much...." (Earn rewards the right way, there's enough opportunity out there if you stay true)
When you feel called to live according to this purpose, instead of the often easier way of embracing our self gratifying flesh traits (spirit flesh double symbolic word) of human inclination, (gossiping, selfishness, greed, cruelty, pride, arrogance, etc) you drop the BS and put trust in the promises of a God who will not let you down. He knows our feelings and when we are left out and made himself experience the pain so can relate when we’re wrong with loyalty.
So whether you get let down, let others down, or dodge everything all together - start earning rewards by weighing the total scenario, thinking a little further out isn't that difficult. Errors God forgives to, so do others right by giving grace and keep working your working your brain spirit muscles. Extra thoughts matter, extra expertise matters (translates, though be good at other topics too) and the extra peace when you know that if you do things the right way, creates a better resolve in a world where we get let down.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." (Faith rules require some misfortune (agreement with Satan element of enemy play - Book of Job or Jude & the dispute over body of Moses with the Arch Angel Michael) but the eternal knowing of God is enough to know the statements are true to His intention and steadfast promises ends up trumping earthly ability.)
God made us to need Him. He has eternal power to start, that means He has eternal power to not finish (matter out of nothing is magic element). It only would have taken a paragraph of point blank explanation to tell us, yet He decided to first display his power over us while were being conditioned to submit correctly free. You may be doing fine and think you don't need God, but that' contradictory to survival instincts and desire to continue existence. Hardships for 70-80 years and then live for trinity x trinity years of eternal existence? Do the math on that…what’s sacrifice the sacrifice again? Confess and believe when you are ready, finding the inner humility and then go covert or overt and see if things make more sense.
So we learn to accept we are fallen, learn to report to and say sorry to God when we do fallen type things, and ask for forgiveness just like a child does to their parent when they know they mess up. We all mess up. When you hear "living in a state of grace" that means you live knowing you are not perfect and remain thankful to a merciful God who cares, knowing He still accept you as you are. Knowing there is a God out there that is guiding you each step of the way in this journey we call life, is something we shouldn't take for granted but even more so for the un-played scenarios of eternity. God is creating eternal scenarios ‘he’s creating rooms for us,’ ‘he still working like we have to work’ though His work is dealing with everyone maybe more than new terrain and rooms for us that he’s already accomplished; since He’s that much higher than us he had to create a wide enough memory to have mutual affection for everyone and He doesn’t want a phony but real spiritual conviction, Himself included.
When you see evil happening unfairly to someone or yourself, know God's justice will prevail. Get your memory to be connected and errors become part of being human. Report to the spirit of Truth which you should know and embrace more than no goals at all, including everyone around you; grow your virtue, give respect and give time - God's hand is on everything, he’s had lots of time for the next great surprise!
