There Is A Promised Land
Friend, God has made us a Promise of a better place after this earth experience if we genuinely love Him.
If we genuinely love Him:
- we will desire to know Him
- we will listen to Him
- we will believe Him
- we will have faith in Him
- we will serve Him as a child cares for it's Father
- we will obey Him because He is Good
- we will love His people
- we will talk to Him
- we will testify of Him to the lost - those who are doing their own thing; avoiding Him.
And, we will do these things of our own free will, without coercion from Him, for He does not coerce anyone but allows Holy Free Will for all.
- All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
It's our choice.
He offers us Freedom in the Kingdom of God, the Promised Land but it is our choice if we take Him up on that.
Knowing Him is knowing; that He has a Son. ( who is also the second entity of The Trinity of God.)
Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all God in One; The Trinity.
God has told us this in His Living Word; The Holy Bible.
For those who find Me, find Life,
and receive favor from the Lord. Proverbs 8:35
The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:17
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Yes, friend, there is a Promise of God that guarantees us, a Home in His Kingdom.
Whatever that entails we will have to wait and see.
God is a Creator. He has work that is Good. We will not thirst or hunger.
There will be no addictions.
We will be drawn to praise Him, joining in with the multitudes of believers and worshippers.
We will be amazed at His Countenance and Beauty.
We will love His Truth, Mercy and Grace.
We will fully understand His Law and agree with Justice.
So friend, those who do not love Truth, Mercy, Grace, Law and Justice of God in this life will not be in The Kingdom.
He says we will sorrow no more for those we loved but who did not love Him, however we will have Joy in our soul and spirit to be reunited with like minded souls; to be safe; to be counted as a child of God and not spend eternity in Hell and damnation.
There will be no sickness where the believers go.
We will be useful and have abilities.
He will restore us to rightful sons and daughters of His, because we love His Son and Him, and The Spirit.
He is Good, friend.
But, He cannot be fooled.
He judges the heart of man/woman and sees everything concerning us.
All those times we railed against Him in anger, hurt and disapointment?
He saw those times.
Those times we thought were secret?
He knows of them.
Our hatreds and our lies, all are in the open before Him.
The slightest minor sin He is affronted by, because He is wholly Pure.
All those things can be Forgiven if we acknowledge; that His Son died so we may be free of the punishment of them.
Let these words of acknowledgemnt of Him (The Apostle's Creed,) be spoken by you with total belief; and have a long talk with Jesus regarding your own sins and ask Jesus for Forgiveness.
The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit; Born of the Virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified dead and buried; He descended into Hell; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; The Holy Christian Church, the Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.
