Taxes - Alms: What's the Difference?
August 6, 2008
Today, I have a question to ask you. Are you standing for taxes or alms, or would you like to learn for yourself? What is the thing to do? Which one do you choose?
Never forget this, from years ago when a man, during the time of Jesus, found a fish and after speaking to Jesus, was sent to pay taxes. Did Jesus say this, “Pay taxes people.”? Was this the truth? Yes, it was and it is. Now why did Jesus say to pay taxes and also to give alms? What does this mean? Are they two different things? What can we understand that God wants today ...taxes or alms?
Do you remember when Jesus took a coin one day and spoke to the people about what they were to pay? Are we really supposed to pay taxes? No one realized what Jesus meant. He spoke about one side of the coin, regarding taxes and the other side was to be for the poor. Yet we often say like they did then that if something is from God, it’s surely not taxes. But remember what Jesus said with the 2 sides of the coin, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” The taxes were on one side and the alms for the poor were on the other. This was enough to make the people angry because they were sure to win against Jesus.
The Spirit guides this work today and it is fascinating. When you learn to love from the heart, it means that you will give alms in respect of every one, wherever you will go. It is not only in the form of food for others and giving to the poor. Learn this important lesson that was given thousands of years ago that the taxes and alms worked together. In other words ...feed the poor, give to the government in order to work and share together. Everyone must be able to eat, sleep, and have shelter. Also remember when you are sick ... the taxes are for the roads that the doctor must travel on to see you. Never forget this.
Now, between taxes and alms, we must learn to share from the heart. Remember that water was here thousands of years ago and throughout time, all people went together to share it. If you don’t agree with taxes and alms ... well, you will see that it’s better when they are together.
When you finally realize that taxes and alms can become together like one person, you will understand differently. Now, we realize that desires over water, the focus on war and fighting and security, are being taken care of by one thing: taxes. People are being forced to be protected, take part in wars and pay for their resources through taxes.
Now we ask ... can you learn to love instead of being forced? Love can give so much for all of us. But no people recognize this today. If you realize that you love today, truly, then, believe it or not, problems with water would disappear. Water would be the normal wonderful creation that it once was, there would be no more wars and the farms would be beautiful again. Why not now? Because everything existing today is now being lost because you use everything for yourself.
Believe it or not, many years ago in Jesus’ time, that same Man was asleep in a boat during a storm. All the people in the boat were afraid. They woke the Man up saying, “Save us! We don’t know what to do!” What did the Man say? “People, people, people ...look at the water...” And He told the water to calm down and it did instantly. The people saw this and recorded it.
Today, for women and children and anyone who loves from the heart and respects women ...all Heaven will be with you for you who recognize the Spirit is there for everyone who has ever lived or will live. Without love, you will lose everything.
Today, I ask you again, do you wish for taxes or alms ... do you want forcing or giving? Which one of the two do you want? When you learn to love from the heart, and share, you will see that there are many people out there to share with. Teach love to share love. Many people will listen to you. (‘Now I see why you teach us to love!’) Then do the same thing for each other.
Blessed are you. Do you have any idea why Jesus said “Blessed are you.”? What did this mean? It was to teach people to love when you share love from yourself. He even said, “I respect the way that you love from your heart. Now teach others.”
Is it easier to kill than to live? If it is, isn’t it stupid? Never forget for yourself to share love. You feel without seeing because the Spirit is from the Father. You recognize it is there to love you everyday.
So taxes ... let’s look at ourselves. When you recognize love, you forget taxes. You share more than when you are doing things without love. Isn’t it beautiful? When you recognize love, you forget war. You share with each other without expectations anymore. Everything is easier to recognize with love than without love. The more love you give, the more you share and respect and then you realize that you are in Heaven. All people, even from the past, will continue into forever.
How many years old are you? Before you existed, you were learning already. The Spirit guided you to recognize, in your mind and heart, the beauty of sharing with each other.
Today it is more important that you recognize love without a word. The Spirit is more than talking. You feel this. This now is for every day, for all people to learn from love and then, we are in Heaven. Learn to love from the heart and share with each other from your love. You will forget taxes and more, because you share. That is why together will begin soon and there will be more money for everyone than ever before, simply because we love each other. There will be no more war. Then you will share with each other, respect each other and forget taxes. Then there will be more money to teach people to love.
It can be made easier for you to understand. A farmer took one seed and the first thing he knew is that there were seeds and fruit everywhere ... way too much for himself alone. Enough for everyone, not just himself. No excuses. That’s it.
