We Must Remember That God Is In Control

luke924

 

With each day we wake up, we have to remember that the very fact that we were given another day to live was because that it was God who allowed for us to live another day. The life circumstances given to us is based on what God’s Will is for our lives, and to see what we use our freewill to do in the lives given to us. Those that are bound to the Eternal Kingdom, have the confidence of knowing that God wins in the end of all this. This confidence is gained through the labor of the personal testimonies to which God had given to those that sought Him during their trials, and gained victory for the Eternal Kingdom out of the trial. A soul anchored in God’s Divine Laws of Love knows what Jesus Christ demonstrated on the Cross, at Calvary; and never thought that ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love and Mercy were beyond their limits. Just as God, the Father of Creation, does not force His Ways of Humanity, but gives us the choice to choose, with each day we wake up….we too, must do the same within our ministries. This is the very Life Example that Jesus Christ showed us through His Own Ministry, as He roamed the earth. In fact, instead of those that attended services on a regular basis, He chose to sit and preach to those that might have been considered as the rejects, the lowest within society, and even spiritually lost by the religious elite of His Time.

God gives us all the opportunity to see the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. Therefore, we must conduct ourselves in the same manner. However, at the same time, we must also not allow for evil to take a foothold within us, and make us to regress in our spiritual paths towards the Eternal Kingdom….God will hold us accountable for each time we regress within our spiritual paths toward His Eternal Kingdom….because of the wisdom He reveals to such souls in their prayers closets, for receiving that knowledge, we are held responsible for whether we uphold or go against the truth that was revealed in it. God does not take this lightly…in fact this is how Lucifer (being one of the highest ranking angels in God’s Court at one time) was thrown out of the Eteranal Kingdom, and became Satan, the biggest adversary against the Eternal Kingdom, and Humanity. Don’t you think evil knows about this accountability then? So why wouldn’t Satan and his demons try to throw us off the path? Because we are being given the chance to enter into the Eternal Paradise, while they do not. That is the honest to God Truth.

Nothing happens without God’s Knoweldge, on this earth. He sees everything from Up Above. The reason He doesn’t act is that in His Perfect Timing, He will have to destroy those that are in complete rebellion against the Divine Laws of Love. However, He wants to keep on giving such lost souls, another chance to choose His Divine Laws of Love, over those of the temporary earthly ways, that are not of the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. That is how great the Love of God, the Father of Creation, has for humanity.

Therefore if you have been called to the path, you must remember that you were given responsible to live by and share the knoweldge of the Eternal Kingdom through which was revealed to you through your testimony and within your prayer closets; and uphold them at all costs.

God Can Only Be Known Through Brokenness: Thwarting Us To Knowing That His Ways Are Not Of The World’s but Beyond Them

2 Corinthians 4 8-9

We are born into this world. Based on the original sin that was committed in the Garden of Eden, by Adam and Eve, we are born with a sin stained human nature. God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) said that His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them. So how do we unshackle ourselves from the world’s ways? It is by going through a painful life experience (a moment where all human logic was not fruitful in getting one out of that painful experience), so that a man or a woman can, for a moment, break away from the ways of this world. It is within these moments, it decides whether one is destined for the Eternal Kingdom or not. How? Based on where the man or woman turns to, in these very moments, to cope with the painful, possibly life changing experience. By turning to Him, He gives us the strength to endure through the Refiner’s Fire…and conquering the tests of Evil. Evil’s plan by testing us, through earthly measures, is to discourage a man or woman who dedicated their soul to the Eternal Kingdom of God, away from Him and His Divine Laws of Love, which consist of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. Evil wants to convince you that you should have a stressfree life, without trials; and to give in to your sin stained Adam nature. Though it may appear, to a person that does not know the Divine Father of Creation, that such a person is unnecessarily suffering on the outside…on the inside, such a soul is becoming “born again”, being refined back to the purity that Mankind was originally created to be. Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) showed us through His Death on the Cross at Calvary, that He conquered death and Evil,through this one act, in fulfilling God, the Father of Creation’s Plan to once and for all rid all evil from His Creation. Through the proof of this one act, God showed His Unconditional Love for Mankind, and Evil will try to manipulate this one fact, to make Mankind to think otherwise. If we go on the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, we will encounter many earthly trials, but only to achieve eternity, in the process, through the gift of Faith, through which God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) grants to His Faithful Children. This is the promise that was made through the Death of Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) . For in 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 , it states:

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

It is through our spirits conquering our earthly troubles, that we use our victories as testimonies to God’s Eternal Power and Love, towards us as Mankind. It is through this life changing earthly troubles that our spirits change from our sin stained, human nature, which is displeasing in the Eyes of God. We become more convicted in the Power of God, the Father…and see the limitations to human and earthly logic, to which evil wants to shackle Mankind to…and restrict its exposure to the great power of God, the Father of Creation. But those who know of Jesus Christ’s Commission, in His Death on the Cross, will have their spirits shine so brightly in the darkness of this world, that even evil can not deny God’s work in the transformation of such a soul. And such a soul will remind evil of what it could never have again…access to God’s Eternal Throne Room. If Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) was not exempt from earthly troubles and trials, what makes us think that we can gain entrance into the Eternal Kingdom without so…and still reflecting the Unconditional Love that is a part of God’s Divine Laws of Love. God, the Father of Creation, (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) through the Life that Jesus Christ led on this earth, understands the trials that evil puts us through, and how much evil wants to throw us off the path to the Eternal Kingdom, and depend on what the sin stained human nature tells the earthly body to feel. But again, God has the confidence in His Truth prevailing, for those of whom have understood Jesus Christ’s Commission on the Cross, and have had revealed to them, a segment of His Wisdom about the Eternal Kingdom. We see again in 2 Corinthians 4:1-6:

Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

This clearly states that not only is God confident in His Truth prevailing, but those who chose to “take up their Cross” and following in the same path that Jesus Christ went before them, all those that decide to rely on God during their earthly troubles, and take them on, willingly, will have the same confidence in His Truth. The life changing painful event, will decide if someone breaks away from earthly logic that evil wants to shackle us to, or if they turn to Divine Logic during earthly trials and troubles (which does not require any sorcery or magic)…resulting, little by little, in breaking away from the world’s way, and experiencing God’s Strength and power in their life. Coming to such a philosophy for one’s life, is not for the weak hearted…or a soul that is weak to the Adam Nature, which is sin stained. It is for the strong, who experience the supernatural strength of God, the Father of Creation….in facing the hard times. It requires death to the earthly mind and heart that can shackle us to the world, on a daily basis; and if not surrendered to the Will of God, can hinder us from receiving God’s tiny portion to His Wisdom. In 2 Corinthians 4: 7-15:

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

Without a testimony to God’s Strength, into becoming our own personal strength in conquering an earthly trial, it will be hard to do a ministry to convert souls for God’s Eternal Kingdom, when that conviction of personally experiencing the power of God’s Love is not there. Souls can pick up on that rather immediately. There can be that lack of empathy by such people….and a word of God, that is being preached without fully understanding the depths of God’s Strength, will be sensed, even by the most sensitive of souls, whether on the path to the Eternal Kingdom or not. Though by not the same caliber in earthly suffering as Jesus Christ, we have understood our own portion of the Cross, with the life circumstances that God has given us. And the closer we get in our paths…the more trials we will face, because evil is working that much harder to take you away from the Path to the Eternal Kingdom. It is not done with just one event…it is a lifelong process.

People who ask for earthly evidence for an Unseen God, does not understand the meaning of Faith then. There is proof everywhere in our daily lives, of His Existence. It just may not be in the form that we (with our limited and restricted human logic and nature) expect it. God does not define Himself, or His Ways by the ways of His Creations. The Creator has never done that. It is not in grandiose earthly ways either, where He announces where He is applying His Power. He is God; He does not need to do that….but in the faithful everyday things…that shows His Loyalty to us…which demonstrates His Patience and Unconditional Love for us. It is up to us to choose with our freewill, to see it for ourselves. We can only see it if we chose to…and through the gift of faith, through which only God, Himself, can offer to an individual. Through the pain, perservere, and rely on the Strength to which was provided by the blood shed on the Cross, at Calvalry, by Jesus Christ. Perservere, despite what your human logic may say…Divine logic always trumps all.

Time for that will run out some day….

The More Trials We Face In Our Spiritual Journeys, The More We Advance To The Eternal Kingdom

When God says His Ways are not the world’s ways, what does this mean to you? Does it mean that He uses earthly parameters and statistics, to determine the success of one’s spiritual journey? Does it mean His Rewards for your faithfulness conform to the world’s ways? Does it mean that whatever is determined as beautiful on this earth, is considered beautiful in His Eternal Kingdom?

 

Well, if this was the case, then Jesus Christ, as His Son, would have came to live a life, that conformed to the earthly riches of this world. As a member of the Most High Court, in the Eternal Kingdom, He would have been born of earthly nobility, such being born into royalty; lived the life of fortune and earthly riches; and died and laid to rest in a Royal Family’s Masoleum. BUT HE WAS NOT. Instead, He was born in a stable, and laid in a manger, where the animals ate out of. Though being the King of all Kings, He lived the life of a humble Carpenter. Though being the Son of God, He chose to live the life of a nomad, and wore the garment that He wove Himself. And instead of dying and being laid to rest, in a state of earthly nobility,Jesus Christ was put to death, by the death sentence of a criminal, for a crime He did not commit; and laid to rest in a stone tomb. This is the extent that God, the Father of Creation, went through, to show us that His Ways are not of the world’s ways.

 

As Jesus, or for that matter anyone who chose to follow the same path He did to the Eternal Kingdom, you see that their trials became stronger and harsher, as they grew stronger in their faith….or in situations where the person strong in faith, resisted evil with ease. Christ’s trials came as harsh as giving up His Earthly Life, to uphold God’s Will of His Life. The trials became just as harsh for the disciples of Jesus Christ, where they upheld God’s Will of their lives, to the point of death to the earthly body. Such spirituality…or connection with Divinity, could never be achieved or reasoned out by the ways of this world; or even understood by our flawed Human Logic. To be able to do this, that is uphold God’s Laws of Divine Love to this extent, can not be done by human strength alone. It can only be done with strength that is inspired by Divinity. Who follows the boundless parameters of Divinity; not restricted to the boundaries of this world. As Man, we have a constant battle going on between the flesh and the spirit; which began upon the first sin committed by Adam & Eve, in the Garden of Eden.

 

Jesus Christ and His Teachings, as well, as those that were continued by His Disciples, state very clearly that God’s Children will go through the Refiner’s Fire. That with each trial we face in our lives, we should die a little from the ways of this world. This is why we should face trials cheerfully. WHY? One, we must be getting the Devil angry at us, for the spiritual journey we are taking. Second, the more trials we face, and ask for Divinity’s Guidance on, the more we separate ourselves from the ways of this world, and begin to see things of this world, in its true value, as God values it.  In fact through the Earthly Life of Jesus Christ, we see that we must be very worried of our spiritual path, if things are going too smoothly in our lives. We are either conforming to the world’s ways, and not threatening evil, in any way; or that we are not fully grasping the true Message of Jesus Christ’s Teachings of Unconditional Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy. Evil will throw everything at someone who is becoming spiritually strong in the Father of Creation, to throw them off the path. Even to the pont of instilling the fear of losing the comforts of this world; to losing one’s earthly life. In the Book of Revelations, it is very clear that an earthly death is nothing in comparison, to a spiritual death.

 

With each trial one faces, God reveals a little window into His Divine Wisdom, if we ask for Guidance from the Holy Spirit through such trials. This is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life and Death on the Cross, at Calvary. The many Prophets that came before Him; and His Disciples that came after Him, as well, showed us that with the aid of the Holy Spirit, we should come to the understanding of fearing God’s Wrath for not following His Laws, than that of evil. In the end books of the Holy Bible, it is very clear, that God’s Children will be persecuted by evil, for upholding God’s Laws of Divine Love. The trials in our lifetimes are meant to serve as events to build up endurance in the coming times ahead; and a way to refine our faith. Evil can not dwell where there is light; and light can not dwell where there is evil’s darkness. God wants true believers, and a heart that only seeks for His Ways of Divine Love, can only enter the Eternal Kingdom.

 

So endure the trials, and it will be rewarded onto you, for Divinity’s Guidance to you, in “discerning the deception of evil.”
