No Sugar Coating…..
Many want to hear about the loving and forgiving side of God. It is TRUE! God, the Father of Creation, is a loving and forgiving God. This is what He demonstrated through the Mission and the Commission that He gave His Son, Jesus Christ. His Love is UNCONDITIONAL …..His Forgiveness is ENDLESS. He proved that to the point of sending His Son, to die for saving Mankind, His Most Prized Creation, from His Eternal Wrath.
However, here’s the side of God, the Father of Creation that we often forget about. With the introduction of sin, in the Garden of Eden, by the Serpent…with Adam and Eve eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, we should not intentionally test God’s Unconditional Love and Endless Forgiveness. God always excused and excuses ignorance (which means not having the knowledge of what is right and wrong). However, He does not excuse it when we have heard the truth of what is right and wrong, and with the choices we make with our freewill. Now, please do not misunderstand, God KNOWS that we may fall off the path to the Eternal Kingdom (that is those of us that decide with our freewill to follow the path that is less travelled of Unconditional Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy…that is those that are the ways of God’s Divine Laws of Love), because He knows the weakness of human nature. Based on the spiritual battles occurring in the heavenly realm between good and evil, human strength, which is restricted by earthly parameters does not stand a chance against things that require a SPIRITUAL strength. As a result, victory can only come from the most powerful spiritual source….God, the Father of Creation, who says He does not define Himself by the ways of this world, but is beyond them.
In this day and age, with the endless knowledge at our fingertips, there is no excuse in the Eyes of God, in doing what is wrong, out of our own freewill. This is why God says, He does not like lukewarm believers. This means that we have to keep not only our actions in check, in front of God, the Father of Creation…..but also our thoughts, as well. Keeping in check requires changing from the ways of our sinful human nature. It requires an unconditional love, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, to which will help those who ask for His Guidance, to discern the deception of evil. God loves unconditionally to the point of giving us the CHOICE EVERYDAY that we live on this earth, to chose right over what is wrong…that violate His Divine Laws of Love, in the Eternal Kingdom. We should hold ourselves accountable to this, with each day we are given to live on this earth. With the knowledge of what is right and wrong in the Eyes of God, the Father of Creation, Jesus Christ showed us through His Teachings…His Life, Death, and Resurrection on the Cross, that we should be just as vigilant over ourselves, in holding ourselves accountable in the Eyes of God. I think many believers in God, are too busy doing it to others, that they forget to do it of themselves. With having a faithful relationship with Our Creator, Jesus showed us that we will also have the confidence of where we stand in our paths to the Eternal Kingdom, based on the wisdom that He reveals to us in Our Prayer Closets.
If we chose to travel the path most travelled to which Jesus Christ has said is the road to destruction, it will lead to our own personal destruction, in the Eyes of God. We are given endless opportunities in our lives…given the opportunities till our last breath on this earth….but once that earthly life is over, your story in God’s Eyes….has already been written, and awaiting for review of the Final Eternal Destination of the soul. This is why it is required to do a daily repentance….of our thoughts, actions, and words. Those who are shackled to the ways of this world….to which God said, His Ways are not a part of…will not understand this. However God is omnipresent, and sees all, to the very souls of Mankind. And though with the knowledge of what is right and wrong in His Eyes is known by His Children…..He saw something that was still in the reflection of His Original Greatness for Mankind, that was worth enough for allowing His Son, Jesus Christ, to walk amongst them….to live amongst us…..to die as one final plea to chose right in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love of the Eternal Kingdom….as His Love Song to us.
God gives us the choice everyday…so let’s try to keep ourselves in check, and chose wisely.
