Yes, as a Christian, this perspective might be alittle different from what my readers are used to hearing…reading. However, let’s look at it with different vocabulary….with the vocabulary that some of our fellow brothers and sisters in humanity may use in describing “good” and “evil”.
When people speak about “positive” and “negative” energies, we must acknowledge that it is because there is a recognition of bad vs. good; or good vs. evil. When the world was originally created by the Father of Creation, as we see in the Garden of Eden, everyone and everything within nature was in PERFECT HARMONY….only positive energy. It was until the serpent introducing Man (Adam and Eve) to the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, that evil was introduced into this world, to create “positive” and “negative” energies. Humanity was not meant to know of what is evil…but once given and taking the knowledge….they were exposed….
As God, the Father of Creation’s, as His most precious creations, Mankind was meant to be positive….good….only meant to know all that is good and positive. Once Mankind chose with their freewill in serving two masters where they sometimes chose to adopt negative energies for personal gain and benefit, that is when they chose to allow for evil to seep into Mankind. Remember anything Divinely, only has positive energy. And those that create out of being permanently shackled to negative energy or evil, needs positive energy to just live from day to day. To mimick for a moment the positive energy that is stolen, for what God, the Father of Creation, can perpetuate in positive energy for eternity. Evil has almost like a parasitic relationship, in that such life needs the positive energy that abundantly comes from Divinity, to just survive and thrive. Evil will try to hide this from Mankind. It is so deeply rooted in negative energy, it will try to deceive those rooted in good for positive energy for enough time for it to take what it needs from such a soul or spirit. Those rooted in positive energy know the source of their abundant energy. It confirms the existence of God’s Goodness, because even evil can not deny what gives off positive and negative energy.
Remember, we were originally created to only be living in positive or good energy, which was in perfect harmony…naturally with all living things. The world functions on positive energy…For things to exist in perfect harmony…there is nothing of the self in all living things.
Jesus Christ, became the shock absorber of all the negative energy that existed in the world at that time in Mankind….so that Mankind can be given another….one final chance, in the Eyes of God, the Father of Creation, to choose with their freewill, what is right over what is wrong. Jesus Christ became the gateway or sponge for us to continuously through our negative energies to, in order for us to gain positive energy from the most abundant source of it, God, the Father of Creation….Devum…Jehovah….Yahweh (all names of the most High God).
The current condition of the world today, is based on the choices we have made as Mankind, in valuing the things of this world over those things that are divinely spiritual. We decided that giving in to evil or negative energy, more than the good or positive energy, based on the knowledge we have of both….is beneficial, whether it be all of the time or moments in our lives. But even then, we are given the choice everyday, to accept the authority of the Father of Creation or not, and to repent for what we do wrong or not. This is the difference between a soul that will be continuously shackled to “negative” energy vs. “positive” energy. When we repent…we wipe our slates clean….we wash our souls….and refill it with positive energy. When we do not repent to the most High God, we allow our souls to be stained with this “negative” energy.
Jesus Christ could have easily walked around on this earth, as the Son of God, and kept away from those who were filled with “negative” energy, and only hung around those with “positive” energy. However, He did not. Instead, He did the opposite. To fill those who were considered sinners…outcasts from society….and even hated in the community with God’s Love….He filled them with His Positive Energy, which came from the Father of Creation. He did not keep away from them….His Love was that unconditional..to the point of dying on the Cross, to become that shock absorber…that sponge of negative energy for all of Mankind’s violations and rebellion to God’s Divine Laws of Love.
The greatness of Humanity can only be restored by God, the Father of Creation. Jesus Christ showed us this through His Own Life, Death and Resurrection into the Eternal Paradise. He saw something still reminiscent of the original greatness in humanity, that God, the Father of Creation, meant for it to be, that was worth dying for to be the shock absorber for it. He created humanity to originally be full of positive energy, good, and light, until evil dimmed humanity’s light by exposing it to its ways. There is truth in the saying “Ignorance is Bliss…”. However, Jesus Christ had confidence in the Truth that His Father in the Eternal Paradise stood for…and with the Commission He gives to all of His Children, in their Prayer Closets….Jesus Christ hopes that they will obtain the same confidence, just as He had.
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.
“God Not Only Demands That We Come to The Cross…But Requires Us to go Through The Cross…” -Pastor David Wilkerson
Since I was a child, I have always pondered upon why Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, had to go through what He did, the way He did. And of course, in the evolution in my Spiritual Walk with God, I have come to several conclusions, which we hear many priest, pastors, and missionaries have come to those same conclusions. However, it is only until I heard what the title of this entry is, by Pastor David Wilkerson, that it all began to make sense, in reference to the sequence of events to come for Mankind, and to demonstrate how much God does not conform to the ways of His Creation, as the Creator. And as His Son, God in human form, He showed us that we should wholeheartedly have faith and trust in God’s Plan for His Children, in the Eternal Paradise.
God, the Father of Creation, truly does mean it when He says, that His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but beyond them. This is what His Son, Jesus Christ demonstrated through His Earthly Life, Death on the Cross at Calvary, and Resurrection into His…Our Father’s Eternal Paradise. Though being the King of all Kings, He lived and died earthly measures that are not considered to be of royalty, but that of a pauper. This is the extent that God, the Father of Creation, went through to show us that the worldly means and definitions of “royalty” and “riches” do not mean a thing to Him. God went through the extent of Jesus Christ being betrayed, outcasted, and rejected not only by those in the communities that He involved Himself in, but also by those that were considered His Close Friends. Being falsely accused…and undergoing the cruel punishment and death sentence for a crime He did not commit, and willingly went through it because of the confidence of the Truth in God’s Will of His Own Life….If Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, was not exempt from such things, what makes us think we are any better than Him, to be exempt from them?
Anyone that has truly, wholeheartedly, pursued the path to the Eternal Kingdom has encountered trials and tribulations, till their last breath, just as Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, has. It is God’s Ways of saying….and making their lives a testimony to the fact that His Ways do not conform to the ways of His Creation. He requires us to die alittle each day, from desiring the ways of this world, to understand this. He understands that this requires us to find strength that is beyond what the human mind can fathom…but a soul rooted in the understanding of Jesus Christ’s Mission, while on this earth, will find that strength, in the Holy Spirit that He promised would be with such people, who faithfully seek for the Eternal Kingdom of Heaven. This comes with becoming “broken vessels” from the trials of this world; and through this brokenness, instead of falling prey to evil’s bitterness and sadness…that we run to God, the Father of Creation, for the strength that He so readily awaits to give us, with arms wide open.
“God not only demands that we come to the Cross…but demands us to go through the Cross….”-Pastor David Wilkerson
This is how God’s Children become beacons of Light, in a world of Darkness. They are the living testimonies of the strength of His Unconditional Love and Power for His Children. But you see, He wants true believers, not just those who believe for a moment. True believers, like any soldier who believes in a cause, undergo all the trials and strikes of the enemies…with the battle scars as proof of their Strength and Victory. This is why Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, with His Death on the Crucifix, is such an offense for many to see…it is unbelieveable for many to understand. Because those that are shackled to the ways of this world, have missed the whole point of God’s Mission for saving Mankind. When we are shackled to the ways of this world, we have the probability of falling prey of serving 2 masters. God sees who has truly understood the Mission He had through Jesus Christ, His Son. Those that call ourselves Christians, especially should realize this. For this reason, it takes more than going to Church…or belonging to a religion. It takes loving and trusting in God, the Father of Creation, with your soul, wholeheartedly. By chosing with our freewill, to follow as Jesus Christ did, as He walked this Earth, for His Seat in the Eternal Kingdom. With this, His Soul is so pure, that His Feet could never touch the ground of this earth again. However, when He does return, it is to take back home with Him, those who have found the meaning of His Life, the strength of God’s Unconditional Love for Mankind…which can not compare to anything of this world…as His Creation. His Holy Spirit will guide those that He has found worthy ground in, and help to give such souls strength to undergo the Cross.
“The Blood of Jesus Christ, has NEVER lost its power…..the Cross has not been in vain.” -Pastor David Wilkerson
We must always be aware, that God’s Will is always done. While God, the Father of Creation, is one of Unconditional Love and Mercy is so great…we must also keep in mind that He is also a “jealous God”. What does this mean? Many unbelievers use this to make a case against God’s Love. But it only shows, that He means what He says, when He is the Supreme Being, and that His Creations do not dictate to Him how things should be (Because He sees what we have done, when given the choice to choose what is right and wrong in our lives through our freewill, resulting in the current conditions and atrocities that exist in the world, today.), as well as the endless mercy and chances, He provides, in giving us the endless chance to change in our ways. Through our freewill, Mankind has chosen to outright serve evil, or to serve both Him and Evil. This is why God says, He would rather us choose to believe or to not believe, rather than being lukewarm in what we believe.
If we look at the story of the Prophet Job, we see a faithful servant of God undergoing such extreme earthly trials. Remember, evil or Satan, specifically, as stated in the Holy Bible’s Scriptures, could not commit the evil trials, unless it was OK’ed by God, Himself. From one aspect, Satan was trying to prove to God, how flawed Mankind is…while God was trusting Job to prove His Case that Mankind was His Most Prized Creations, and deserve even higher ranks than the angels themselves. And of course, though as tough the trials were for Job, He proved God’s case in being faithful to Him, despite having everything (in the earthly sense) being taken away. God asks us to put Him, above all else, just as Jesus Christ showed us on the Cross, at Calvary, though having a split moment of doubt in God’s Will. God’s Will is Always Done.
God being as pure as He is, wants true believers in His Eternal Kingdom. So trials need to occur, the toughest coming to those who are bound to the Eternal Kingdom, with little earthly rewards, so that all the sin-stained human nature is purified and rid of the impure seed, once planted by evil. Remember the 7 deadly sins are : 1) Greed; 2)Gluttony; 3) Pride; 4) Envy; 5) Lust; 6) Sloth; and 7) Wrath. Such roads taken for self love, self indulgence, and even revenge, are ways that are not of the Eternal Kingdom or the Divine Laws of the Eternal Kingdom. Trials come to refine the soul within, that may grow weak to such things, especially that of Pride, Lust and Wrath. So remember all suffering on this earth, in honoring and upholding the Divine Laws of the Eternal Kingdom, will always be honored by God. As it states in Isaiah 54:9-17: (NIV)
“To me this is like the days of Noah,
when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth.
So now I have sworn not to be angry with you,
never to rebuke you again.
10 Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
11 “Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted,
I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise,
your foundations with lapis lazuli.
12 I will make your battlements of rubies,
your gates of sparkling jewels,
and all your walls of precious stones.
13 All your children will be taught by the Lord,
and great will be their peace.
14 In righteousness you will be established:
Tyranny will be far from you;
you will have nothing to fear.
Terror will be far removed;
it will not come near you.
15 If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing;
whoever attacks you will surrender to you.
16 “See, it is I who created the blacksmith
who fans the coals into flame
and forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc;
17 no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from me,
declares the Lord.”
Who are we to think that we are God? It is the deception that was implanted in Mankind, since the time in the Garden of Eden, when the serpent planted it in Adam and Eve, that perpetuated. He wants true believers in His Unconditional Love, Mercy, and Nonviolence. It is in these earthly trials that we truly break away from the ways of this world, to which God the Father of Creation said He is not a part of. Is this not what Jesus Christ, His Son, showed us with His Own Life, Death, and Resurrection? Our faith should trump all the earthly trials we face in this world. Because we have the confidence in a God who we know His Truth prevails. God’s Will is Always Done. Remember, evil can not do anything without God knowing it. And this is how foolish we can be as human beings, we think we can rewrite our pasts….or what we have done….but there is always a Supreme God who sees everything from His Throne in the Eternal Kingdom.
As believers, God expects us to know better. This is why He despises those who are lukewarm. God sees the heart and soul inside…he knows the difference between those who have backslid, and those who are in outright rebellion towards Him. Repentance from such things requires a true transformation of the heart to not desire to sin again. We must remember that God does not taking mocking Him for too long. It honestly does not matter whether we believe in Him or not. He shows us His Existence with each day we are given to live, as well as the nature outside our windows. God has allowed for all to exist, with the choices we have made, as Man, through our freewill. There will come a time, where we will find out whether it was in accordance to His Divine Laws within the Eternal Kingdom or not. God’s Will is Always Done.
Times may get tough in our lives on this earth, but not as tough as it will be in the Eternity away from God’s Mercy, Unconditional Love and Forgiveness….this is an endless torture that will not provide any rest to the soul. There is no outsmarting God…..God’s Will is Always Done.
There is one thing that God, the Father of Creation, has given in our tool belts as something that is always there for our use, against evil and its ways…it is His Direct Link to Him….which Jesus Christ (Yeshu Cristu, Yeshuay) reestablished on the Cross at Calvary….through prayer. A heart that humbly comes to the feet of the Father of Creation, will always go noticed…and words always heard from a soul that is faithfully seeking and loving Him. As any father would do for their child, God, the Father of all Creation is no different. And many of us either forget this, or under-utilize this. Instead, we only use it when it is absolutely necessary….in moments that are selfish, full of fear, and unholy. Prayer is not formal. Prayer is not a rehearsed prayer, where it becomes automated like a robot being automated in doing its tasks. It should come from a heart that loves God, with all of its might; and a soul that yearns and only has peace when in communion with the Father of Creation…the source of its existence. Prayer is a moment of conversation with the Father of Creation…it is a dialogue.
As human beings, we need an instant result in the rewards we receive in our dedication and faithfulness. However, since when does the Creator conform to the definitions of His Creation? If people truly understood the power in prayer, many may do it more often. But then again, will it be done for the right reason…that is the question? May this is what God, the Father of Creation wants us to find our for ourselves. Do we truly surrender to His Will of our lives, or do we just say that in words. God, the Father of Creation, give us the choice through our freewill, everyday as we wake up to another day to live, whether we choose to entrust our lives and souls to His Care….or do we fall to the deception of evil, and believe that we are in complete control of our destinies….Just look outside of your windows…did Man make what is outside, living..thriving,..surviving each day? From the trees, green grass, and fragrant and colorful flowers in the ground, to the clouds and birds in the sky…..He shows us His Existence in our lives everyday….yet how many of us say “thank you”, let alone, have a conversation with Him. Yet when someone gives us a birthday present or random gift of appreciation…we have the etiquette to say that to another human being. When we have a great day…how many times do take then to do the same…only with sad….frustrating…and even desparate moments of despair…when we need something of Him.
However, He still never gives up hope in wanting to hear from us…He doesn’t punish us or hold it over our heads because we don’t do this. With each moment we have living on this earth, God gives us this opportunity to talk with….because this is how much, as our Father….He loves us. Evil would like for us to think that God, the Father of Creation….is evil…and that He is unreasonable…and that He puts so many rules on us, that He wants to have a boring and sad life, full of shackles and restrictions. Do the animals in the wild have this problem? Do the trees, plants and flowers in nature have this problem? The fish in the oceans and seas? All those who do not have this freewill, still thrive….vibrantly through their lives. Evil wants us to believe otherwise…to mislead us in God’s intentions for us. He loves us so unconditionally to the point of wiping our slates clean…..if we repent with a truthful spirit and heart for our mistakes that rebelled against His Divine Laws of Unconditional Love. He give us this opportunity everyday. He even sent His Own Son, to take on our punishment, as His….so that we would not have to go through it. We just have to make the choice, everyday we live, until our last breath.
The power of prayer. I have noticed within my own life, that with each time I spend with God, the Father of Creation….He give me an inner peace that is unexplainable. He reassures me that He will take care of me. While the world may seems lonesome at times….He always shows me that He is always there beside me, and then I never feel alone. The power of prayer. He gives strength, when to most it would be crazy to face certain situations on one’s own, and even to love in the most purest form….unconditionally. God, the Father of Creation provides in our secret prayer closets, nuggets of His Wisdom to the Ways of the Eternal Kingdom…conversations between a Father and His Child, and dotes on them with His Gifts, to which are in no comparison to the riches of anything the earth could offer. He reminds His Children, in their prayer closets, the Promises that He had made in Jesus Christ, His Son. The power of prayer.
Prayer is what allows for God to communicate with Children the secrets to the Eternal Kingdom He has in store for all of Mankind, and the promises He has made for one day…all injustice done to them will one day bow down to Him…..As God’s Children….we must know the power of prayer. It is so easy to get caught up with the ways of this world…..with your job….and life circumstances….with people in one’s life….this is how much evil wants you to forget about the power of prayer. We must never forget it…and what God can show us through them…..Jesus Christ did with His Own Life. He believed in it so much as to show us to the point in dying to make sure we can have access to Him, and the Father of Creation. We should never forget that.
Love in its purest form is UNCONDITIONAL. Think about examples of the purest forms of love:
1. Between a parent of child, to the point that it can be sacrificial.
2. Between a pet and their master.
3. Between siblings.
4. Even between lifelong friends.
5. Animals within clans protect each other to the point of death.
Today, we here the words of “I love you”….being thrown around to even acquaintances. It is beginning to lose its meaning. Instead of being powerful words expressing the most powerful emotion…that even Jesus Christ demonstrated to the point of dying on the Cross at Calvary, to save Mankind from being lost to darkness, forever. We see people loving based on a condition….based on terms that someone within a relationship dictates…one sided. Many explain it away as “loving differently”. Love is a universal language…a universal feeling. It is almost saying that you should “love in your own way”. Not true….everyone understands unconditional love, especially in the sacrificial sense. Such an emotion shows nothing of the self, because of the Source that it comes from, in its purest form….God, the Father of Creation. Jesus Christ, His Son, was the Ultimate Symbol of Love, when He died on the Cross…the way He led His Life, serving Mankind.
We must be mindful when we use the words of “I love you”. Because we only soil the name of the Almighty God, the source of all of it. And He does not take that too lightly. God, the Father of Creation, sees the heart inside…the soul inside. He keeps one’s actions in line to represent His Unconditional Love….there is nothing of the human self…which is soiled and sin stained. This is how evil tried to soil Mankind. Evil wants to diminish the meaning of love. So that no one will ever remember what it means to experience…to know of the Unconditional Love that come from the purest source…God, the Father of Creation. If we call ourselves, God’s Children, we must keep our hearts, minds, thoughts, actions, and souls in check…to be in line to which God, the Father of Creation shows us everyday in His Unconditional Love…through which He demonstrated through the Death of Jesus Christ, His Son, on the Cross at Calvary. As human beings we are flawed…that is why love in its purest form, can only come from strength that is supplied by the purest source…God, the Father of Creation. We can not do it by our own strength. But by the strength and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because such love is guided by a pure source…it will be consistent from the what a soul emanates…from a person’s actions…to the love they express in words. Such a pure love is undeniable, even to the most lost souls in darkness. This is how God beams His Light into the World….and shows that He is God, through such souls that allow for His Unconditional Love to shine through them…as that which was seen in Jesus Christ, His Son.
God states that those of His Children that roam this earth, will not value the ways of this world, and in fact will be rejected by the earth. Evil will continuously pursue them, in order to jade them from the ways that God the Father of all Creation, has shown through His Unconditional Love. They will often be viewed by the world and the people shackled by the world’s ways as worthless, and be rejected by them, just as Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior was, to the point of Death on the Cross, at Calvary. Though being a member of the most High Court of the Eternal Kingdom, Jesus Christ followed God’s Will of His Life, to be born in a cattle’s manger, to live as a Carpenter’s son, and to live as a shepard or a nomad, not as the King of all Kings (that we would imagine an earthly king to live) that He is regarded in the Eternal Kingdom. If God went to this extent to make His Son suffer the earthly circumstances He did, then what makes us, as Mankind think that it should be any easier for entrance into the Eternal Kingdom for us, when Jesus Christ was fault free?
Just in the case of Job, evil will try to throw trial after earthly trial to God’s Faithful Servants, so that they will get fed up serving the Almighty God, and His Eternal Kingdom. So that they will PERMANENTLY fall off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom. But even then, evil can only do this based on being granted God’s permission or having it as His Will of His Servant to undergo. Even evil can not step outside of God’s parameters and boundaries, whether it believes in God’s Authority or not. However, seeing how much God values His Precious Creation, Mankind, Evil hates God so much that it wants to tarnish, deceive, and soil Mankind, for it’s destruction, as revenge to God, for throwing Evil and its agents out of the Eternal Kingdom, permanently. Though being spiritual beings, or souls who are not bound by the ways of this world, when created in the image of God, Evil wants to shackle and bind Mankind to the earthly realm, because it is the realm to which it can manipulate and deceive God’s Children away from God’s eternal reward of entering into His Eternal Kingdom.
Evil will try to shackle Mankind to the world and its ways, because this is the only place it has Authority…With our freewill, we are given the choice everyday to either take the higher road (the narrow, straight path) to the Eternal Kingdom OR to the lower path (that is wide and curvy) to suffering God’s Wrath for not following His Ways, when you had the choice. If God says His Ways are not of the World, then why would His Rewards conform to the ways of this world? If His Eternal Kingdom is not bound by the parameter of earthly Time, then why would the ways the world define your success in entering the Eternal Kingdom.
EARTHLY PROSPERITY DOES NOT EQUAL ETERNAL PROSPERITY AND ENTRANCE INTO THE ETERNAL KINGDOM. QUITE THE CONTRARY!
While Evil only has the power to control the ways of the earth…it can only go to the extent of killing the earthly body. However, only the Almight God, the Father of all Creation showed us by the Example of Jesus Christ, His Son, that the ways of the Eternal Kingdom, do not conform to the ways of this world. In fact the only possible way that there is any resemblance to the ways of the Eternal Kingdom, is by ” the faith seen in little children”; “in the humility and the humblesness of a Good Samaritan”; in the faithfulness seen by Abraham and Jesus Christ’s Disciples. These people were considered the least of value on this earth by those in positions of power and influence. They were considered the rejected in society’s and communities….despite being servants of Mankind. They did not prosper in the earthly sense, and their faith always went and walked before them, in their life paths and journeys. As in the case of the Prophet Job, the Devil took everything in the earthly sense away…..though initially being very prosperous in the earthly sense.
In the end of times, evil will be given full reign. We must be prepared, if we align ourselves with the ways of the Eternal Kingdom of the Father of Creation, to uphold God’s Laws of Divine Unconditional Love…at all costs. Not compromising our souls, the way Adam and Eve and many of those that came after them, in such a way that we will be at the mercy of God’s Wrath. Remember that evil can only control one’s earthly stanndards….however, it is our choice to fall prey to evil’s ways or to have confidence in the victory that God gave us through Jesus Christ, His Son…in His Earthly Death on the Cross…and Resurrection into the Eternal Kingdom. He conquered evil through His Death, not only for Himself, but all of Mankind….it is our choice to remain in Him.
