GOD’s good gifts…

GOD’s “good gifts” are spiritual in nature; they mostly come in spiritual forms. You might still be looking for the ‘substance’ of His answers to your prayers with a physical eye instead of the spiritual one, Luke11:13.

Solomon had this insight, asking GOD for things relating to HIS personality (Spirit; not seen) and GOD was very pleased and gave him much more, 1 Kings 3:5-14.

Matthew 6:33
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

One With God is a Majority!

2 Kings 6

15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?

16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.

17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

One day, my wife asked me a question, and I quote, “what if HELL isn’t a place of fire and brimstone, but a place of mansions, and streets of gold; where there’s music and fun, and everything a man’s heart could ever want, but only that GOD isn’t there;

And what if HEAVEN is a place of chaos, darkness, and poverty, but only that GOD is there, would you still want to go to Heaven?”.

Thank GOD Heaven’s streets are paved with gold, and there are mansions there, but the REAL TREASURE of all of HEAVEN IS GOD HIMSELF.

Genesis 15:1,”After this, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: “Do not be afraid, Abram. I AM YOUR SHIELD, YOUR VERY GREAT REWARD.”
John 14:6,Jesus said,” I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life…”

As darkness is merely the absence of light, so is hell’s greatest torment the absence of GOD.

Look at earth for an example; GOD started it with a beautiful garden called Eden, and the plan was for man to tend it and multiply it. But what happened?

Man removed GOD from the equation, and years later world governments haven’t solved the problem of war, poverty, inequality, diseases, etc.

And according to Bible prophecies, world governments are only going to make things worse and worse, and only the eventual intervention of GOD through Yeshuah’s second coming and His millennial reign on earth would bring the utopia beyond all our dreams.

So if you’re offered all the riches of the world in exchange for your soul; If all that is standing between you and mega money is The Alpha and Omega HIMSELF, what would you choose???

Pleasing GOD.

You know, I always have this reasoning that if according to the Book of Genesis, we were created in God’s image and “likeness”, then we, as the “creation” must likely emit some characteristics of our Creator.

Humans create robots, right? For example, when the robot created to help children cross a busy express road starts pushing the children towards every coming vehicle, killing them, we say it is malfunctioning, right?… Doing the opposite of what it was created for.

What do you do when all the accessories and gadgets you bought to help ease your workload at the office or home starts doing otherwise; creating more harm than good? You dispose it, right?

Now, this is where I am going… those gadgets, robots, accessories were created for the sole purpose of PLEASING you and I. GOD created you and I for the purpose of PLEASING Him via fellowship and He gave us (humans) so much power (of thoughts and decision-making) than even the angels He created before us, of which so many have come to misuse that power just as the devil misused his and was cast out of GOD’s presence.

When something you create stops fulfilling the purpose for which it was created, you discard it. #food for thought#

But GOD is not man. He is LOVE personified. So, instead of discarding you, He is RECYCLING you through Jesus Christ (the atonement for our sins) who came down to ease the recycling process. Repent now (and begin to function properly), accepting you want to be “recycled”, OR deny Him and be discarded (thrown in HELL). The choice is yours.

Shalom!

FAITH WITHOUT WORKS…

James 2:14, 20

“What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him?

But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

 

Thank You, Holy Spirit.

Having studied Chemical and Polymer Engineering in a University where there are other arms of engineering such as the Mechanical and Electrical/Computer, I know that having only the theoretical knowledge of these courses without backing it up with a practical knowledge only makes them of no effect; literally useless.

What gives more sense to the theorems being taught in the lecture hall is its practice in the laboratories. James 2:18

“Theory” is a substance; its practice brings it to life.

“Faith” is a substance; its practice (workings) brings it to life. Little wonder James said in James 2:17 that “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.”

“Faith” in this context can be likened to “theorems” while “Work” can be likened to “practical”.

Friends, if you have not been working out your Faith (practicing your theorems), I’ll advise you start doing so now.

Revelation 3:20               

   “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”

Don’t be asking GOD to help you without you wanting to be helped. He is knocking on the door of your heart, are you opening that door for Him to come in? Or are you sitting there waiting for Him to barge in (thinking, “He is GOD He knows His way in, I don’t have to open before He enters”).

“Communication” (Prayer) is a two-way thing, you’ll agree with me. I don’t see why you can’t open the door for Jesus to enter when He is opening His door for you to enter → Matthew 7:7.

Your faith enabled you hear that knock; it’s now left to you to add the work of “opening the door for Him to come in” to your faith.

Still reveling in your addictions and earnestly waiting for His help? His help has already been given to you; all you need do now is make a conscious effort at conquering that addiction by total avoidance of it and stubbornly taking your stand not to indulge when the need pops up again and again. And then, you’ll experience everlasting victory because He will be with you all the way, helping you overcome. John 16:33, Hebrews 11:6.

Galatians 6

4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

5 For every man shall bear his own burden.

6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
