Talking about the importance of religions.

Welcome to our article (39), importance of religion

May God help me to say the right things.

Dear readers, we believe that religions are important. You see, we believe in God, and we believe that some of us have spiritual consciousness that pushes us to write about it, because we may have learned religious things, or experienced spiritual things during our lives, that we believe is worth to tell other people, like my dreams about Jesus Christ, that I will be writing in this article to explain my spiritual connection, once I have explained the importance of religions.

Anyhow, religions have always been important for humanity to live a meaningful life, and this is what we want to say in this article. You see, past religions have helped people live a meaningful life according to the times they were living then. But when with the passing of time the way of life changes, religions also became modified to represent the times they were serving. We can see this if we follow the world history of religions, so, let us mention a few religions and the civilizations they have served.

The written history books of our western world, say that Egypt is one of the first important civilizations. They built the pyramid and from them we learned that they believe in many gods and the afterlife, then there is the pagan religion, here Greece is the center of this religion, with all their pagan gods and goddesses, working like the minister of a democratic government, living on Mount Olympus with their king Jupiter, they also believe in spirituality and the afterlife, with Pluto the God of the underworld.

Then we have the Israelite religion, with Yahweh the most powerful God known to mankind, since he can create anything, just by saying what He wanted, and it was done. Anyhow, from the history book of the Israelite comes the Bible and the Christian religions and the Muslim religion, even if today these two religions seem too far apart, they both came from the Bible. So, religions are important for mankind.

Anyhow, now let us look at other main religions, we have the Indian religions, with many different religions and beliefs, some of those beliefs may involve cleansing in the river, which is different from our western religion. Anyhow, if you want to know about Indian religions, I believe that their most important book of these religions is “the laws of Manu. Now I need also to say that, from one of these religions comes Buddhism and other religions. Anyhow, I believe that I have pointed out the importance of religions.

Indian believe in cleancing in running water.

Some Indian religions believe that they have to cleance themselves in running water in the Ganga.river. This photo shows one of these retuals.

Let us continue to talk about religions.

Today we believe that religions are important and necessary for humanity. If we look at important religious events, we will see large crowds of people following them.

I believe that religion is necessary, because it is in our nature that we need to believe in God to live a meaningful life. You see, humanity has always felt the need to believe in a higher power, which we like to turn for help when we need help. We also need God and religion to explain our existence, and to guide us.

Because religions are a set of rules of how people should live their lives, so, they help us to decide what is good to do during our lives. Of course, there are also man-made rules that would help us to decide how to live our lives, but those rules need to be enforced by the government authorities, whereas the religious rules are self-imposed, because of your religious beliefs, therefore, religions have been and are important for humanity.

You see, if we look back at the history of mankind, we will find that all civilizations had their own religious beliefs. Even though today most of those beliefs may have evolved to meet what we need today, nevertheless they were helpful to the people of those times, as they were, because they helped to create a meaningful life for them, according to those times.

Wherever we look, we find evidence that people have believed in gods, who were more powerful than us humans, which we humans would turn for help, when we found ourselves in a dangerous situation. Most civilizations have believed in the afterlife, which would give them some sort of immortality, since no one likes to die and disappear forever. Some religions proved to be good in the ancient world, but a few were disgusting and believed in human sacrifice, to keep their gods in a favorable mood for the rest of the community.

Today those ancient sacrificing religions have disappeared, and the pagan religions have also disappeared, and they have been replaced with Christianity, but some of those archaic religions have left the signs of their existence. So, today there are still statues of gods and goddesses to be seen; there are ancient books where we can get some ideas of what these religions were like; there are some words in our language which come from these ancient beliefs; as there are the names of the planets of the solar system, which come after the name of gods and goddesses of the pagan world; in everyday language, love sex and sexual diseases, they all seem to have something to do with Venus the goddess of love. Now, let us compare these beliefs that mankind has always had, with today beliefs, because this will show that we need to believe in something higher than ourselves. It is our beliefs and spiritual consciousness that push us to do it.

Dreaming about Prayers of Reconciliation

This is the angel poem of these religious writings. You, angels of the realm of glory, you tell us about the eternal story, you tell us about the creator's glory, you tell us the wonders of God's creation.

Beliefs and our spiritual consciousness

Now that we have looked at the need that we humans have for religions, let us look at our beliefs and spiritual consciousness that we have today ourselves. We know that religious beliefs are complex and there are other things to keep in mind and follow. Because everything we believe, has something to do with our conscious or subconscious mind, therefore, our spiritual beliefs, it has always been like this, and we need to find our own ways and beliefs.

We have reasons to believe that our consciousness or sub consciousness have always played a part in religion, because things that we believed a long time ago, we are still believing today, so, this field of consciousness is very wide and includes many things, one example could be found in our dreams, the old religions and today religions they both take into consideration our dreams.

You see, since the beginning of recorded time, people have always believed that dreams come from our spiritual side; we believe that dreams can be a way of communication between the living and the dead, which our subconscious mind can communicate at certain times of our lives.

Therefore, when we are sleeping, we could be able to communicate with the spiritual world; I want to say this because what follows hereunder are a few religious dreams, which I dreamed and they are so real that I felt that I had met these spiritual forces in my dreams.

Anyhow, I am going to tell you my religious dreams, because they reflect the inner part of what a person belief are. So, I am going to tell you my religious dreams about our Lord Jesus Christ. Even though, my personal religious beliefs are those of a modified Roman Catholic person, but I still believe in our Lord Jesus Christ. And I believe that one day in the future, our lord Jesus Christ can represent all religions on earth, with his effigy of, the Sacred heart of Jesus. But anyhow, let me tell you my dreams hereunder.

-----------------------------------

Our Lord Jesus Christ will guide to world

This is Our Lord Jesus Christ as Christians and Roman Catholic believe him to be, of course there are other portraits of Jesus Christ, which could be a bit different.

This is Our Lord Jesus Christ as Christians and Roman Catholic believe him to be, of course there are other portraits of Jesus Christ, which could be a bit different.

My first dream about our Lord Jesus Christ

This is my first dream about Jesus Christ and other spiritual forces. I believe that this is my connection to the spiritual world, and to our religious beliefs, and this is my dream.

In my dream, I seem to go around in many unknown places, as we know dreams can take us in strange places, anyhow, some of these places are good and some are not so good. At one stage during my dream I seem to be in danger, because some evil force or people are after me to rob me or harm me. So, I try to run away from them, while I am running away from this danger, I try to find some safety by knocking at a stranger door, the door opens and an old Lady lets me in, I felt safe in there, because there were wise mature people inside, I wanted to thank the Lady (who may well have been the virgin Mary) for letting me in: But they all seem to smile back at me, as if I knew only half what was going on. So, I started looking around to find the reason, and there I see my own mother beside me in company with the old Lady: So, I could not help it; (as I was aware in the dream that my mother had passed away a few months before) So, I asked my mother: (in my own native language, which translated in English is) Who sends you here to help me? Is it Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary? There was not much else to be said, as I was waiting for an answer from my mother, but it did not happen, but I could feel that I was right in saying that. Anyhow, this dream ends here because I woke up.

------------------------------------

The face of our Lord Jesus Christ in the sky

This photo somehow resembles the face of God or the Lord Jesus Christ that I dreamed, except that in my dream the face was horizontal above me and very clear in a clear sky.

My second dream about Jesus Christ

MY SECOND DREAM ABOUT JESUS CHRIST, the spiritual connection continues.

Now, soon after this first dream that I have written above, that is after a couple of nights or there about: the dream seems to continue, because again the evil force or evil people are after me, and they want to rob or harm me, it is because they think I have in my possession something that’s important to them, I do not know what this something is, but they are all after me anyhow. They seem to catch up with me, and I feel that I could not escape from them anymore, so, I knew that I was in grave danger because they were the evil ones. So, in my despair I turned to heaven and prayed God to help me. At that moment, there was not a cloud in the sky when I started to pray, but soon two large eyes formed in the sky and they were looking down upon me, and winged at me benevolently, a large and well-defined head formed in the sky like a portrait, and this head seemed to fill up most of the sky. At the sight of this God send head figure the evil ones were frozen with fear and did not move a single step to grab me. So, they all stopped frightened in a corner of this lake, while I was on the shore of this lake looking back at them, as they seemed to shrink in size on a small boat, it was as if they wanted to hide from this mighty force up in the sky.

At the same time I became aware that, what the evil ones wanted from me did not belong to them or to me, but was something that I had in possession, which had to be divided into three parts, and one part of this belonged to mother: The dream did not explain who the mother was, and since it is very unlikely that it would be my mother; then the mother very likely would be mother nature, or perhaps God, since God is everywhere and could be said to be equals to mother nature.

After that, when I woke up in the morning, this dream became very important to me, because in the morning I found a red spot on my forehead between my eyes, it was small, but it was just like one of those religious people from India make on their forehead for themselves.

So, I have reason to believe, that in my dream I called on this heavenly force, and the heavenly force came to help me, and then left a sign on my forehead to let me know who that heavenly force was, and that I should remember the meaning of this dream that I dreamed.

I hope you see what I mean, when I talk about religious beliefs and the Importance of religion.

Dreaming Jesus Christ the morning star.

Dear readers, I am sure that you want to ask me, how many dreams about Jesus Christ I had?

Well, I have had a few dreams about Jesus Christ, and this is another one of them.

Anyhow, this dream seemed so real that I felt that I had indeed met this spiritual force.

Now, the first time that I talked about this dream, was in a group discussion, where we were asking. Do you believe that we may communicate with the spiritual world in our dreams? Has anyone else met Christ? Even if this event was only a dream.

Anyhow, I answered that perhaps I have met The Lord Jesus Christ in a dream. The I said, as we all know dreams are different from normal life, sometimes we dream dreams that are somewhat in another dimension, or physically impossible in real life, anyhow, I was dreaming that I was flying in the sky, a lot of times I dream that I am flying, so, this dream is a normal dream for me, and this is when I believe I have met the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is the dream,

I was dreaming that I was up in the sky above the sub-continent of India and I was
searching for I don’t know what, there was a very large benevolent field force near and above me, this force was filling about half the sky of India; I felt that this heavenly force was very friendly to me, so, I did not do anything to avoid it or to enquiry about it; at a certain point this force spoke to me to introduce itself in a friendly manner saying:
Do you know who I am? (And then in answer to itself said) I AM THE MORNING STAR.
Although this dream lasted a bit longer, there was not much else of importance said after that between me and this field force and the dream slowly fades away.
At the time of this dream I had no idea who could be THE MORNING STAR:
But since then I have found out that THE MORNING STAR could only be The Lord Jesus Christ.
So, I believe that this dream is my close encounter with the lord Jesus Christ spiritual force.

Of course, THE MORNING STAR has different meanings to different people, but for me in my dream THE MORNING STAR can only be The Lord Jesus Christ, see Revelation the last page of the New Testament, where Jesus introduced himself through this angel saying. I am of David’s line, the root of David and the bright star of the morning. I believe that I don’t need any other proof to believe that the morning star in my dream was indeed our Lord Jesus Christ.

Anyhow, I believe that I am dreaming about Jesus Christ, because I believe in the lord Jesus Christ; and I believe that one day our Lord Jesus Christ can represent all religions on earth, under the banner of the sacred heart of Jesus.

Now that I have talked to you about Jesus Christ in my dreams, let us talk about the old religions, to prove the importance of religions, in this article.

Temples of Gods and ancient religions

The Greek gods of Mount Olympus

The pagan religions had many gods, this photo is about the Greeks Gods of Mount Olympus. Their king was Jupiter who with the other gods ruled the earth, Jupiter had two brothers, Neptune to rule the sea and Pluto to rule the underworld

How were some old religions like

Old religions were also important.

Because we want to talk about the Importance of religion, I want my readers to look at old religions; because I want my readers to see that people have always needed religions. I want them to understand that even though these religions could have been false, they gave the ancient people who believed in them a sense of help, so, they felt better for practicing them and believing in those religions.

Now if people can feel better practicing religion, even when later we know they are false; this proves that religions are important to us.

Some of those pagan religions believed in many gods and goddesses: The ancient Greeks and the Romans believed that their gods and goddesses were immortal, and they lived on Mount Olympus Greece. Every god had special tasks to perform, which were very much like the ministers of a democratic government of today. Those gods had as their king Jupiter the most powerful of them all, he had in his hands thunder bolts which could strike anyone when he wanted; his wife was Juno who was a very strong and powerful goddess. Jupiter was the son of Saturn and ruled all over the earth, there were other gods and goddesses who helped Jupiter in doing what had to be done, some of which were: Mars god of the war, Mercury, Apollo, Venus the goddess of love, and many more. Jupiter also had two other brothers, one was Neptune king of the seas, and the other was Pluto king of the underworld.

But if one wants to understand what these gods were doing one should read old literature, like The Iliad, the Odyssey or The Enid and other old books.

Dear readers, I believe that humanity needs religion to live a meaningful life; so, we must believe in God, if we want to live a meaningful life.

Today religion is not as popular as it used to be, so, we need a different approach to Religion. May God help us find the right way.

May God bless us all.
