If God has a will, how can you become a Beneficiary?

Often the topics I write on this Forum get a response as if I am religious. The reality is I had no religious upbringing other than the nominal 'Christian' country I grew up in. I was 32 when I had a powerful conversion to the living God of the Bible. At the time I was a hard drinking,drug taking and selling, aggressive night club bouncer, with dealings with outlaw motorcycle gangs. As an ex soldier I lived the warrior, tough guy lifestyle, complete with the tough guy dog (bull terrier) and the tough guy car (coupe with a 350 Chev motor). I was the complete heathen package, I was self righteous and I despised the religious people I met, I even mocked them. In the midst of all of this I pondered the meaning of my existence and perhaps because of that, God called me and I went to find out about him.
In the 29 years since then I have encountered many beliefs and I have reasoned with the people involved with them. I have found the most hurt and damaged people come out of the Catholic system. As my Italian Catholic barber once told me, he liked the song but not the singer. I interpreted that to mean that he liked the concept of God but not what he had been taught so far. The Catholic system, not the well meaning people involved in it, is evil and is one of Satan's greatest achievements. It has little or no resemblance to the teachings of Christ or of the early Christian Church. Its origins are with the Roman emperor Constantine who hijacked the name Christian and then replaced the pagan gods of Rome with so called Christian saints. He then turned Mary into a mother goddess , and introduced mother and child Babylonian worship, with Jesus becoming the oldest baby in history. The unmarried priest hood and the vestal virgin nuns were then introduced with the crowning glory of a guy called holy father (Gods title, not his) sitting on a throne in Rome. They then took this religion on the road, replacing the local pagan gods of a region, with Catholic saints with the same powers as the gods they replaced. The Bible once again gives us a warning of this teaching. Rev 17:4  And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 
Rev 17:5  And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Jesus has a bride his church. The devil has a whore.
Rev 17:9  And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. Rome is on seven hills. 666 is the number of a man, the Pope by the way.
Many of those brave souls who translated the Bible from Latin to English, were put to death by the Catholic church because of these verses. So much so that a Jesuit priest called Ribera had to devise a false secret rapture doctrine, to conceal who the Catholic church is. Once again I am talking about the system not the well meaning nice people ensnared in it.
I fully understand peoples anger and frustration with what they are constantly presented with when it comes to God. A TV discussion about God usually has a Catholic priest, a Rabbi, an Imam,a scientist, and an atheist on the panel. To me that's like the beginning of a joke and it often is, as none of them know God at all and his voice is seldom heard. You have said the teachings of Jesus are oppressive. Here's just a couple. Mat 5:44  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. Mat 5:39  But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. (Jesus was beaten unrecognizable by the way)
Mat 5:40  And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. Perhaps if this current world was like this it would be a great place.
Jesus said come to me as a little child. He means without preconceived ideas, like a little child with a clean slate. Jesus though born a Jew stood up to the Jewish rulers of his people and it cost him his life. Whats not to like about him and his teachings.

The human mind was hacked long before the aforementioned emporer thought he happened upon a good scam, thousands of years before, the minds that created Gobekli Tepe was of a civilised thought process the stones there are also aligned to the stars even back then about 10,000 years ago, and then hidden from view to conseal thier messages.

I like the idea that everyone be a heathen and free their minds from the rhetoric which is religion, and remain spiritual alongside nature, and be good towards each other, it is not very hard to do.
I was watching the Wood Pidgeons courting today sitting high upon a branch in our garden, kissing and preparing for what comes natural, never have I seen them rounding up the blackbirds to find food and feed them, never have I seen the Blue Tits ganging up together to attack the Blackbird because one flew through the same air space in our allotment.

Some thing have found a true balance with nature, but humans will never find it in written words from scribes who know how it used to be, but from their heart soul union with nature itself.

After my conversion from being a heathen,my family had trouble with my miraculous change at first. As time went on some of my relatives became Born again Christians because of my testimony but not all. I have heard the mother of a drug addicted dying man who became a Christian and radically changed,say I wish you were back like you were before. Had I not had God intervene in my life I too would be dead by now. As for wood pigeons *[[Luk 12:24]] KJV* Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
Perhaps you should write your advice, what ever it is by the way, to Donald and Vlad, then they can join hands and skip into the sunset together. If this earth is left to mankind (male & female) its foretold destruction is at had. Unless there is a direct intervention by its creator.
*[[Mat 24:30]] KJV* And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. *[[Mat 24:31]] KJV* And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. *[[Mat 24:32]] KJV* Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: *[[Mat 24:33]] KJV* So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Time for you to listen to the word of God and people with his true Gospel. As time is running out. No masons talking here in this message.

It seems that your christian fervour is now beginning to come to the surface, advise me no more gentle knight, but remember the Raven is like the Carrion Crow who tidies up after nature and life has ended as all life does and becomes anothers free bounty and sustenance, in nature nothing goes to waste, but the worm will most definately have a place at the last supper.

Have a nice life Greg and I bid that you repent your own way, but advise me not from works and words not of our own making.
