It appears that “enlightenment” or understanding that which was not previously known has everything to do with the heart of a man. My grandmother once told me many years ago, she does not understand why some can experience the same things as others and not be damaged or defiled but stand strong, steadfast in their very soul and not be broken while others use it as an excuse to become angry, broken people. I used to think that some were not trying, now I don’t really know. I do know it has to do with intent. Intent and need is everything. When you cry to God in your heart, He hears you. When you put up a spiritual wall He will not enter because He can’t unless he breaks it down and God does not work like that. Jesus talked about seeking and finding, knocking and the door being answered and it is written you will find God if you fervently seek Him with your whole heart.
Know in these end times, the only people “not getting it” ain’t trying. They are the ones with evil intent or a delusional mindset because they choose not to know the truth. If you seek the truth you will always find it. It’s there, it cannot be hidden. The human mind works that way. It hides what it wants or needs to hide depending on the condition of the soul or what works in their favor if they are selfish. Most refuse to humble themselves to God and pray for forgiveness and salvation because they think they are too good. They care more for their own pride than they do their own soul. Anyone who thinks they are better than God will never know God. God is also able to block enlightenment at His Will.
Jesus is the Light of world and there has never been more proof in this world than now. All those who shun and mock the true God of Love that Jesus explained to us are lost. They always seem to have the same excuse of “that’s their choice.” They’re right. It’s not the right choice, but like all choices, it is theirs indeed, only many in the world suffer and die because of it and that’s not OK. You can’t pretend to be a “good” person and not love Jesus or at least “get” Him. It’s not possible. There are great folks who were not raised to know Jesus and that is not their fault, also they do not mock or take away from others. I do know that the most evil in God’s world mock Christ even to this day and show all just how unenlightened they really are. They are still killing Christians around the world and “liberal” groups are working fervently to remove all signs of God and Jesus from this world thus telling the world who they serve.

Amen. I agree with the exception of people suffering from extreme severe mental illness. For unfortunates I believe God extends extra mercy and compassion. Sadly I see many mentally ill people who live inside the subways including the platforms and subway cars. I don’t judge because I’m only one paycheck away from homelessness. My small donations won’t make much of a dent in their condition but I pray that the government steps in gives them the help they desperately need. Mercy, compassion, kindness and nonjudgmental to all people.
Sorry this is late. Agree. God bless!
