Preparing Yourself (Part I)
As the days go by, there seems to be more evidence that we as Mankind, are growing further and further away from the greatness that God had originally created for us to be. Though God has given us the freewill to choose whether to follow His Ways of Divinity; we often decide or make the choice of not doing so. God had entrusted us to make the right decisions, yet we keep chosing to do the wrong. This was proven when temptation to sin was first introduced in the Garden of Eden, and Adam & Eve fell to the first sin to be committed by Mankind. Ever since then, Man has shown their weakness to the temptations of Evil, by falling prey to the 7 deadly sins in some shape or form; leading to harming each other…harming Mankind, which is in direct violation of God’s Divine Laws of Love. What distinguishes between a believer and a nonbeliever? Repentance….repentance….repentance. I can’t stress that enough. Through this simple, humble act in front of God, you show that you still recognize His Authority in your life. There will come a time where we all will have to answer to Him, whether we believe in Him or not; or whether we have forgotten Him or not, from our lives. We are each held accountable for all we do on this earth. And there is no hiding of anything from God, because He sees all. Evil try to convince you of otherwise, just like it did with Adam & Eve. And God’s Wrath is permanent; while the inflictions that Evil puts on us are TEMPORARY.
People who are faithful to God will endure trials and tests. God is refining them through these trials, to breakaway from the ways of this world, back to the perfection that God had originally created for all of us to be. And the world’s ways are currently running rampantly with NOT WAYS OF DIVINITY; but WAYS OF EVIL. Remember that God says He is BEYOND the world’s ways. So we must breakaway from the ways of this world. Jesus Christ, Himself said that it is not enough to just be faithful to the Commandments and the laws. But you must give up everything that you value in this materialistic world, to follow God. This is really a mental process. When you BELIEVE in something….you begin to LIVE it. Our hearts will prick us, the moment we violate God’s Laws, as God’s nudgings of whether this is right our wrong. But Evil will constantly be around to constantly make us fight those “nudgings” from God. Evil tries to tell us use the “knowledge of this world as our philosophy and way of life. This only combats God’s Wisdom which is BEYOND the ways of this world. Nonetheless, even is the knowledge of this world, God reveals Himself. The question is are we viewing them through our “spiritual vision” or through our “human worldly vision”?
God says we are not to accept what violates His Laws of Divinity. Yet look at how many atrocities to Mankind exist today? And how we have justified their existence? EVEN GOD HIMSELF, though having all of the authority to do so, DID NOT DESTROY HIS CREATIONS. Yet we as His Creations, have given ourselves authority to destroy them. From killing nature, the animals in the wild, AND EVEN EACH OTHER. Who are we to do so? Have we considered ourselves to be gods ourselves to do this? To think that we are godlike in deciding who out of God’s Creations are superior to all other of God’s Creations? God does this to give ALL the opportunity to change from their sinful human nature, both good, and those who chose to follow evil. Out of His Love for Mankind. He just wants us to choose willingly to do so. Evil’s authority on this earth is allowed only because we CHOSE to allow for it to enter within our lives.
