Pride Separates Us From God

21/05/2018 20:34

Friend, all we need to really know in life, is that God desires we turn our face towards Him, and learn of Him.

He will do the rest when we do that. The multitude of issues, problems, interests, people etc we have in our lives keep us from seeing God; and those same "things" get in the way of us having victory over them!

God has His hand outstretched towards us all the time. He wants us to run to His hand and lovingly take it.

But we have our back turned to that hand.

We inwardly know it is there, but we are rebellious children, gone astray and we do not want His Help until the very last second!

Friend, be a seeker, a humble searcher for Knowledge about God before you get into deep troubling territory and become truly lost.

Enter into a time of wondering and ask, "God, are you there? Do you love me?" "Help me in my unbelief!"

Give Him a chance to answer you in His Timing and in His Way.

Go about your days in wonder and awe at the Holy Beauty of creation, as you wait. Be certain that He exists - it's called FAITH.

Pay attention to the thoughts in your mind. Not the ones that say, "He doesn't care about you," but those that challenge you to believe.  

He will answer you in a Way that is designed especially for you.

You will begin to see His Hands at work all around you. Talk to Him and thank Him for your new insights and revelations.

That softened heart and stance, He is able to respond to.

Your answers will come as you open your heart to Him; He will enter in and begin heart-cleaning.

Out will go negativity, anger, hate, anxiety and depression.

His touch will usher in Joy that permeates your whole being not for just a moment, but forever. It will sustain you in the darker moments that must come in order for others to find Him too.

During this time you will most likely begin to understand that all that is bad in the world must be given the name "evil."

Evil has a master also; Satan the fallen angel Lucifer who allowed pride to become his god.

Pride will bring us down. God is angered by a prideful heart because He Who Is Almighty has been denied in the prideful heart.

Scripture Verses on PRIDE.

1 John 2:16 - For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

Romans 12:16 - [Be] of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

Eternal Light Divine

20/05/2018 20:12

Friend, are you aware that God is Light?

He is the Most Pure/Holy Light, Whom without His Light, we would not exist.

Matthew 17:2

And He  (Jesus) was transfigured  (changed from flesh to Light) before them, and His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became white as Light.

There is no other God like Him.

Forget all those foolish notions thought up by us, the created!

He is the Creator of all things.

He speaks and it is so.

2 Corinthians 4:4-6

In their case the god of this world (Satan) has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the Light of the Gospel of the Glory of Christ, who is the Image of God.

For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.

For God, who said, “Let Light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ.

The Word of God says that there is "no shadow of turning" with Him.

Where He is and where He goes and turns, there is never a shadow of His Form.

He is Light Itself!

We know Who He Is by, His Light. His Light glows with Pure Truth and Love, Justice and Law.

None other has it!

John 1:7-9

He (John the Baptist) came as a witness, to bear witness about the Light, that all might believe through Him.

He (John) was not the Light, but came to bear witness about the Light. The True Light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.

When we encounter Him, at The Judgement, we will know He Is, God.

There will be no doubt. 

We will know.

His Light will be Magnificent and Glorious.

Sadly it will be too late for some, as they realize that God is real, and He Is Who the Bible, friends, family, society, preachers, said He Is.

But for those who softened their hearts, opened their minds, and listened; they will know Him by The Eternal Light Divine that emanates from The Heavenly Throne of Holiness, Purity, Goodness, Truth & Justice.

They will be rejoicing in the Fullness of Love being showered on them, by the Light Divine, as those who denied the existence of Him, will be agonizing in terror of what is to come.

Those will understand The Law is Everything; and their souls have been foolish in their denial of The Eternal Light Divine, Who their human brothers and sisters called, Jesus.

They will know that this is the last stop. They had all those chances, touches, encounters with people God sent to them, over their lifetimes, in so many ways. 

Perhaps He gave them beauitful songs to reveal His Divinity but they wouldn't listen. Maybe He inspired books and articles and other forms of the written word to show others His Truths. Others He gave Gifts of visions and dreams, encounters with angels, and holy people who followed God's directions concerning them, but they wouldn't have any of it.

They will see their own denial has caused their current predicament.

The believers they hated will have a Glorious Future...

John 3:19-28

And this is the Judgment: the Light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the Light because their works were evil.

For everyone who does wicked things hates the Light and does not come to the Light, lest his works should be exposed.

But whoever does what is true comes to the Light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.

After this Jesus and his disciples went into the Judean countryside, and He remained there with them and was baptizing. John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because water was plentiful there, and people were coming and being baptized ...

Friend, today, right now, God is revealing Truth to you.

Don't be afraid. 

As you wonder in uncertainity, God supplies all you need to come into the belief of Godliness. 

He will forgive all our sins if we admit to Him with a broken heart, a repentant heart, that we are sinners; we have broken The Law and are deserving of what the Payment is for our sin.

He will provide the Holy Spirit to minister to us; His Holy angels to comfort and protect us, and His Word to teach us forevermore.

Friend, He loves us greatly and does not want any of us to perish after the Judgement.

Now is the time to consider Almighty God, to wonder at His Power, to see His Justness, to hear His Word, to repent and ask for Forgiveness.

He will come to you with open arms as if you were a prodigal child coming home to it's Heavenly Father, after wandering in the wilderness, after stumbling along in drug induced states and causing harm to others even.

He, right now is in the Forgiving stage of our existence.

Take advantage of  Holy Forgiveness now, as we never know when our last breath may be.  After our death, we will be considered to have rejected Him and made our choice to take the consequences; not wanting anything to do with Him ever.

God Loves

03/05/2018 22:17

Friend, God loves us.

This is what He wants us to know.

He has given us the ability to figure everything out and to help others along the Path of Righteousness.

He loves all He creates; and He created the human race.

He is Law.

Everything that emanates from Him is held together by all the Law of all that is.

Evil is allowed only because His Law calls for evil to be allowed for a time because of free will; then to be dealt with in the Great Holy Courts of Heaven where Holy Justice will prevail.

He doesn't make mistakes. Some things may look like mistakes to an unbeliever but that doesn't make it Truth.

If we see something wrong and we attribute it to God's doing, we are not correct in that assumption.

God has to be Righteous, and He Is.

If we have doubts, that's when we should begin to search and seek Him; to know Him, so we can receive the answers to our questionable observations about life on earth.

No need to wonder; start seeking Him to see Who He Is.

Billions have and have only glowing things to say!

Know what He must be, to be God.

He must be Good/Righteous; Pure/Love and Truth for starters.

Seek those things to find Him.

There is a Godly Answer.

He gives gifts, too.

One being Free Will from God.

Gifts are to be graciously accepted and cherished; not thrown away or stomped on.

He would love for us to do the Righteous thing with our gifts, but we are enticed by the evil one who is His enemy.

Many of us fall for the wiles of the devil. 

The biggest lie he tells us is, that God does not exist, and Jesus was a nobody.

God knows all that evil says and does, and has made a Holy Acceptable Way for us, to return to His Good Graces in the Plan He set forth in His Law, which is set and cannot be changed; His Son was the Holy Sacrifice for our sin.

We have a Holy Free Will Choice to make; either we believe in the Son or we do not.

The time we have here on earth, is to recognize God and His Plan, The Great Sacrifice and The Son Who God says is the Way, the Life and the Truth.

Friend, I urge you most sincerely for your own soul's sake, do not say that God and His Word are a fairy tale, fantasy, or any like thing.

That may be what you think now, but it is not what your heart knows to be so, because God has designed us to know Him. There's a place in our heart set aside for Him to reside; but we must allow Him to enter.

He will not come in unless freely given access, by us.

You may want it to be a fairy tale; so that you can be correct, or continue sinning, but you must not continue to be closed minded on this one subject.

Your soul's destiny for eternity is at stake.

It's foolish of us to ignore God when all around us He shows signs of His Beauty, Glory, Power, Love, Truth and Magnificence.

That would mean your soul's destiny has been decided, by you, but you will not like the choice you have made, when after your death you find you squandered your opportunity for Freedom during this life.

After death it is too late to start believing.

But, believe you will, when you see the Power, Glory, Splendour, Truth, and Beauty at the Judgement.

It's God's Plan to separate the faithful from the unbelievers at that time, and when examined, the Plan/Law is Perfection so none can point the finger at God to say, He cheated them. 

We will be aware of all the times we turned our back to God.

Many good people will be regretful, sad, angry.

God sees everything, all the time.

And we do not.

He will not forget that we avoided Him continually, as He sought us out to know Him every day we lived in the flesh.

We must acknowledge that He has designed things the way He has for our Good.

Doesn't the fact that He sent His Own Beloved Son, as a Blood Sacrifice, for a bunch of whining sinners so they could be made clean and have a life eternal, and not a death eternally tormented by their own foolishness, show us that He Loves us?

God made a Way for us, showing His Great Love for us while we were sinners!

It is not necessary for us to know how the universes were made, or how the heirarchy of Heaven works or any of the other big questions, before we respect or love God.

He wants us to believe in Him from a stance of humility and innocence; then He reveals what each of us has a right to know.

He asks us to come "as little children."

Instead, humans want to learn everything, whilst trying to fit the "jigsaw puzzle" (our idea) of Who God Is, into our own ideas of who God is.

God asks us to leave all that behind when we come to Him for enquiry.

First He says, "I Am The God of Love. I love you."

Then,  "Come as you are, come with your burdens."

Messages From God's Word

26/04/2018 22:31

Friend, The God of All Creation has left Messages for you and me, in The Word of God; The Holy Bible.

Many of them have been written about in this blog - continue to read previous blog entries to hear what God has spoken for you.

Many are not written plainly, but are kept for you and your "such a time as this" moments; written almost to have no meaning until we "need' to hear that particular messsage from God.

God wants us to search the Scriptures and learn of Him; to find answers to our burning questions; to find Comfort and Knowledge to sustain us on our journey through life.

Others He states plainly; one being that He gave His only Son to die as a Sacrifice for our sins so we may have Eternal Life with Him - not away from Him.

He encourages us to be grown-up, mature in His Word, able to understand the deep meanings, yet He writes for the simple and the grand person.

He does not hide His Messages from those who seek to know Truth, no matter who they are.

Both sinner and saint have the same right to know Him.

And, He judges this by our hearts, not what we say, because we all lie to ourselves and will lie to Him.

The broken hearted; He hears their cries and runs to them ready to help, comfort and teach.

This is why we say that people have to hit "rock bottom" before a change happens.

It means they are wholly broken hearted with their life.

That's when God is "allowed" to step in; the heart allows Him full rein because it knows it is in need of a Saviour, and in desperation, lets down all the barriers and opens the doors to that special place in the heart and allows God to minister to their heart and mind.

And, Jesus Christ, He Is our Saviour.

The Father sent Him to be Saviour/Redeemer for His people.

What other messages are in the Word of God?

Deuteronomy 6:14
Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;
Exodus 20:3 
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Judges 10:13 
Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more.
Exodus 34:17 
Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.
(Gold, silver, wood, earthern idols made from fantasy by the evil one to ensnare God's people)
Joshua 24:23
Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel.
(Destroy, move from your sight all other statues and idols)
1 Chronicles 16:26 
For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
(The Lord has the Power to Create and idols can do nothing. Demons work in them, "pulling the strings," answering the questions. )
Genesis 35:2
Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments:
(Jacob realized Who God Is and changed the habits of his entourage so that God could bless Him and not be offended by their ignorance.)

Why should God bless the home of a believer who has a huge Buddha in pride of place in their home? 

He will not allow His people to think the Buddha or any other manmade statue gave them the blessings they're incapable of giving, which are His to give and receive the praise for.

Demons lurk behind the idols and images we bow and pray to; telling them our deepest needs while they use all the information we tell them, against us!

Be aware. Be awake. Be cognizant. Be open to hearing Truth.

God does not want or need fools.
