Preface
C
ould there be anything more precious to you than your very life itself? AND IF SO, would you know how to live your life from its beginning when you commenced to be conscious of its priceless value and true worth? From that point forwards, as you move on, everyday, to your fixed goal and to the fulfillment of your hopes, your dreams, your aspirations – HOW WOULD YOU LIVE? “How would your dream come true… IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DREAM…?” So that heart-tugging song and lyrics rings thru the decades since it was sung in that box-office hit of the 1960’s movie: “SOUTH PACIFIC” of Rodgers and Hammerstein. On a rerun in New York’s Broadway, circa June 16, 2008, it has won 5 awards. The actress who played the main role exclaimed: “It is a dream come true!”

So do you have a dream?
Would your knowing how to live enable you to have your dream come true? Ah, you would “hitch your wagon to a star!” So goes the motto that was taught to be the mantra of young kids growing up in the grade schools. And the many hitched their wagons to their stars. Where are they now? Would you intimately know? And have you hitched your wagon to a star, too? Now then, have a dream.

And hitch your wagon to a star. They will be the twin power drives of your life and being. And when you do dream, have a right and true, wonderful, attainable, reachable dream. So that when you come awake, in the real world, you can live the promise and wonder of your dream. The first thing you must do: translate your dream into a feasible, reachable fixed goal. And so hitch your life’s wagon to a star. For life is a journey. And even as you are earthbound, you may rightly hitch your wagon to a star. And when you do, that star must be a bright, shining, enduring, everlasting star. Yes, Virginia, and yes, Francisco, you can have a true dream, AND IT IS YOUR MAKER’S DREAM FOR YOU. And the Star is true, real, and never changing. AND HE IS CALLED “THE BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR”. He is ever present. Everlasting. Eternal. Forevermore. THE PAGES THAT FOLLOW ARE THE MEAT, SUBSTANCE, AND ESSENCE OF THE WORDS SPOKEN BY, AND FROM, THE MORNING STAR. AND THOSE WORDS SPOKEN BY HIM ARE SPIRIT. AND THEY ARE LIFE.

To learn a new language, it is pronounced by those in the know, and who mentor others how to speak a new language, or tongue, one must immerse oneself.

To learn of the depths of true knowledge, you follow the same principle, for it is correct and true. Immerse yourself in the Words spoken by The Bright and Morning Star. Drink of them. Feed on them. Daily. Without fail. Meditate on them. Live by them. Then you will live Spirit-filled and Spirit-led. And be truly alive. Is there any other way? There is no other way.

THIS IS THE ONLY ONE TRUE AND PERFECT WAY. WALK YOU ON IT. LIVE YOU IN IT. Then you will have your dream come true.

LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART. WITH ALL YOUR SOUL. WITH ALL YOUR MIND. WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH. 20:3722:3612:28(Exod 20:3-11; Deut 5: 7-15; Mt. 22:36-40; Mk. 12:28-34; Lk. 10:2510:25-28).
3 You shall have no

other gods before me.

4 You shall not make for yourself a carved image – any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children of the showing third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. 7 You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. 8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath day of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work : you, , nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male stranger servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates, 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD

great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. shall 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets,’ (Gospel Book of Matthew prophets,’

Chapter 1

Your Life’s Foremost Agenda and Top Priority Daily

You are on a lifelong journey. A journey towards,
and ultimately, into GOD. Along with the entire human race. Everyone, without exception. Moment by moment that you draw breath, you move onwards, forwards, guided by a fixed bearing on your life’s personal compass.

10

11

Some were foreordained to arrive first, to fulfill the ultimate purpose of God for mankind. They are called the firstfruits.

Others will arrive according to God’s timetable.

The very incorrigible evil few will be aborted from their journey, their walk invalidated. The Eternal Creator GOD, your Maker, has set your bearing fixed towards Him. Just what exactly is that bearing?

GOD Himself spelled it out. He has defined it for you. You therefore can not miss:

11

12

“YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, WITH ALL YOUR MIND.”
You are here on earth, to dedicate, and consecrate, your whole life and being in the love and service of GOD who inhabit eternity, The Great God who created the whole, expandng, vast Universe. How are you going to perform that? GOD Himself showed the perfect method. The exact unfailing Way. He defined it in FOUR WAYS.
GODS I. “YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME.”

Your whole focused attention is towards GOD your Creator and Maker. Other attractions will try to distract you. Divert you. Draw you out of the line. Your fixed determination will prevent you from doing so.

You must understand: GOD does not forbid you to love your parents. Your family. Your friends. Your country, and your countrymen. He

12

13

did not say “HATE” these. He meant you LOVE them, and do care for them, or any of these, LESS, than loving Him. Many mistook these to mean to exclude all the above from your life. To do that would be very ungodly. Do not be a crackpot fanatic. Not to be an oddball. Be balanced.

To truly love GOD, you would have to adore Him. Worship Him. Honor Him. Revere Him. Pray to Him. Thank Him. Sing songs of praise to Him. Credit Him for all the blessings and favors, joy and happiness, you receive in your life. Whether in nature, or from other fellow human beings. They are from GOD, using both nature, and other human instruments, to bless you abundantly.

YES, PRAISE THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! PRAISE AND THANK HIM IN PRAYER AND IN SONG. In this way, He can truly bless you abundantly. And it His pleasure and delight to do so. Your thanksgiving and songs of praise glorifies Him. In all these, God is pleased. Do not allow things and stuff to diminish your love for, and of, God. Not money. Not fame. Not celebrity. Not the applause of others. Not

power. In none of these must you ever be drowned. In none of these must you ever be choked. In none of these must you ever be entangled.

IF you love God, He will bless you with promotion and security. And there is no grief that comes with it. “SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND ALL SEEK THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU, (Gospel Book of Matthew 6:33).
The twin most powerful principles of success involves two pronouncements by the Eternal Creator GOD. They are not what you may think. Not what aggressive proponents of success and achievements promote in the now world. Not according to the claimed discoveries written about which are best sellers in the book market, past, present, or future. THE FIRST IS THE SABBATH. THE KEEPING OF THE SABBATH HOLY AND CALLING IT A DELIGHT. THE DIVINE GUARANTEE OF BLESSING IS INVIOLABLE. THE NEXT IS OFTEN QUOTED: “SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD. AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.” THE SIMILAR DIVINE GUARANTEE BY THE DIVINE SON OF GOD IS JUST AS UNBREAKABLE. Success and accomplishments embraces the true Sabbath keeper and whose vision of life and living revolves around the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness. These TWO, and the living by them, and in them, releases the Believer and Practitioner of the Faith from the bondage to spiritual prisons, mental inhibitions, and superstitions that bog down every, and any, mortal born of woman. The individual is astonishingly liberated from his acquired mental chains. The invisible and visible albatross is lifted from his shoulders, so to speak. The person is quickened in many countless ways as he exults in blessings as God brings them to him in so many mysterious ways His wonders to perform. ..

II. “YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FOR YOURSELF ANY GRAVEN IMAGE – ANY LIKENESS OF ANYTHING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATER UNDER THE EARTH. YOU SHALL NOT BOW DOWN TO THEM NOR

15

16 SERVE THEM…I SHOW MERCY TO THOUSANDS, TO THOSE WHO LOVE ME AND KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.”

You demonstrate and express your love of God by not creating gods in your heart and mind to supplant your worship of God, just as much as you do not bow down to worship man-made idols and statues. Photographs, and paintings. Any, or everything , resembling creatures. Neither heavenly creatures, or angels. Neither man or beasts, or fowls, neither fish, and insects. Nor whatever they symbolize. Stay clear off and far away from worshipping or adoring any, or all, of these.

The world’s masses have come to worship the American Dollar, it being the international currency reserve in the present world. They worship and crave for it. They live and die for it. For it has become their lifeblood, for the things and stuff it can buy and the temporary life comforts it can purchase, or bring. Even the nations crave and covet it.

As it falls, other currencies will replace it. The nearest candidate could be the Euro Dollar, When the Euro Dollar becomes the world’s currency reserve, do not worship it, neither place it on your financial altar, as you may have the American greenback.

Step away from the worship of human celebrities, and their images. Screen celebrities. Or athletic icons. Avoid idolizing movie idols, action stars, or singing stars. Television and celluloid images of fictional heroes and superheroes obsess tens of millions, teens, or adults alike. Be balanced in watching entertainment figures. They degenerate into idolatry. All these images create false gods and hopes in mankind. All these diminish the love and worship of the True Eternal Creator GOD, and make them forget GOD. Strange as it may seem, you could worship your own image of you to yourself. Never take yourself too seriously, as to be puffed up in futile vanity. In pride. Always have a sense of humor. Rid yourself of your pet peeves and pet vain theories that are evidently contrary to good sense, and opposed to godliness. This will contribute immensely to your good health, and enhances your good relationship with everyone whose lives are touched by your presence, your laughter, and goodwill.

AVOID being drawn to charismatic religious preachers. They can hypnotize you, substituting eloquence and gift of language, even thespian skills, for the forthright, clear, unbroken TRUTH OF THE

17

WORD OF GOD. They can explain away the perfect Law, the Holy Commandments of true righteousness, Such as this second commandment. They can explain, as indeed, they already have, that they are not worshipping idols. They worship, they say,what these images represent. These are present in their church buildings or cathedrals, but what these carved figures represent. Very easily, the naive human mind will get carried, and easily agree.

This is exactly why there are hundreds of millions of religious piety and inclination who do this. And are quite content. Smug. Satisfied. And that is how this has become a tradition. Or traditions. And then are set in the mores and cultures of the people and the land. Then it builds up with more traditions and forms of idolatry. These are accompanied with man-conceived and developed memorized prayers。Rosaries, 。 Regal vestments, Rituals, Solemn organ music. Burning candles. Burning incense. Soft voice sermons, Come out of all these.
