Listen up! …please…you know how radical I am, right? Well fasten your seat belt! Are you Ready? ……………………..Let’s Ride, ha!
God loves (all) people. It is sad to both see and hear the mixed messages circulating about this topic. God loves the world; the people of the world and He is not going to change. Regardless of your personal views and opinions regarding people who live a lifestyle as a prostitute or homosexual or murderer, God has plenty to say: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 of the Holy Bible. (NKJV) by Thomas-Nelson. Used with Permission.
People who think they are so spiritual forget that they were once sinners themselves. Yes, I said it! Folks who were once messed up in life with no hope or sense of purpose have the audacity to point fingers at others.
We were born sinners – every person! It is the grace (favor) and mercy of God that anyone is forgiven and set free through Jesus, God’s Son. Do not be deceived into using hypocrites as an excuse for not making a choice to pick Eternal Life (everlasting life) with God. Read this entire blog and then make your decision based on proper knowledge and understanding. Truth that you know, receive and take action will set you free.
Light and darkness are two different kingdom personalities with two distinctive Rulers in Charge. We all were born into a world of darkness and sin. It is a fact of life. You can see, feel, hear and experience the things of darkness because there is evidence daily of all manner of crimes, wicked and perverted behavior in the world. However, God has a plan to escape the kingdom of darkness in which we all were born. He gives us a choice to stay in or get out. Listen up, please….
Therefore, we (all) are faced with a choice in this life. We all are faced with the same choice. Race, culture, creed or color; we (all) are faced with the same choice. Either keep living in darkness with a closed mind that will lead to eternal death and punishment or be willing to change and receive God’s forgiveness that leads to Eternal Life and freedom; a renewed mind; and a true pardon from all punishment and eternal death. Pick one now and live the rest of your life either with Satan in darkness or with God in Light. Choose now while you are able to decide. Tomorrow is not promised.
Have you ever taken time to think and consider your life and why you believe the way you do? Could your life become so wrapped up in tradition until Truth cannot be received or considered?
Satan is the Father of Lies. His destiny is a Life Sentence of Eternal Death and Punishment for “committing spiritual crimes,” against Almighty God, a Holy God. It, too, is a fact. Satan is the enemy of Almighty God and wanted to (replace) God by starting a rebellion in Heaven. Lucifer was the name Almighty God has given because he was an Archangel created in beauty and all manner of music! All of that changed when he was evicted from Heaven along with one third of the angels he persuaded to follow him: they are called fallen angels; demons; devils. True story – read your Bible.
WARNING: Any person, agent, personality, demon, devil, witch or occult member that willingly or unknowingly serve and follow Satan (as a loyal disciple and representative), will also receive the same punishment and eternal death sentence in a place called Hell or The Lake of Fire or Hades.
God has nothing to do with people going to hell! It is a choice each person makes for himself or herself. Hell was not made, designed or created for humans!!!!!
Please, think about your life. If you were to die in the next five minutes; are you absolutely (sure) that you will enter Heaven where God lives? Do you have evidence? Do you have confirmation? Is it settled? Have you heard or felt your god’s love? Does your god call you by name and share the specific plan of success for your life with you?
Okay, I hear you talking underneath your breath. Let us explore a little more and see if this makes sense to you. If you are currently worshiping a god made of wood or rock or clay or paper or iron out of fear based on your works alone: you may find yourself very unhappy and feeling very lonely. It must be most frustrating to never know for sure if you are actually pleasing the god you say you are serving. All your efforts are sincere, but do you really feel connected to this god you say you are serving with all your heart?
Let us break it down even further: would you worship a spoon or mug or piece of paper and pray to it all day and all night for answers – No? Then why pray to dead objects with no life whatsoever and expect answers? If the god you serve right now never ever speak a word of encouragement or express (any) interest in you whatsoever: why continue in a one-sided relationship where you do all the work and get no reward? It is a form of bondage; slavery…and deception.
Will a chair answer your prayer? Will a statue answer your prayer? Will a pot answer your prayer? These things have no voice! They have no heart! They cannot feel or express Love. They cannot hear or reply.
Let me introduce you to my God: God is Love
The God I worship and serve is a Person; not an object. He is our Creator. He is Love. We (all) were made in His image and likeness. He has vested interest and keeps a record of our daily living. He even counts the number of hair on your head! He knew you in your mother’s womb. He has you etched in the palm of His hand. Do not be deceived into believing all the hype about God hating people. It is a lie! God desires to rescue each and every man, woman and child from the power, dominion and authority of Satan and transfer or translate each into the Kingdom of God by Jesus, His Son. Colossians 1:13: http://scripturetext.com/colossians/1-13.htm
The Kingdom of God offers love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness and self-control as the fruit of the Spirit, which are characters of Jesus. Each and every man, woman and child has the same opportunity to live a life free of condemnation, shame, guilt and sin. It is a choice we are to make by choosing Jesus, God’s Son, who is alive and well! He became human and suffered many things so He can identify with us on a personal level. He loves all people; no matter what! God opens His heart to all. True freedom to live a life of peace, comes from having a personal relationship with God through Jesus of Nazareth. No matter how good or how hard any of us work at being good; it is not enough! It is through Jesus that we are made the righteousness of God – He makes an Exchange and trades our filth; our missing the mark; our sin; our works; our efforts; our sickness; our worry; our blame; our guilt; our shame; our error in judgment; our bad nature into His Righteousness. He makes us in right standing with God, plus He speaks! In addition, He sends His Spirit to teach, lead and guide us into all Truth. Jesus really cares!
He becomes “responsible” for us; to take care of us as our loving Father God. He confirms us and we are given evidence that we are pleasing Him (smile). No more guessing….
Again – Hell was not made, designed or created for humans!!!!! But you can choose to go by refusing to receive the finished work of Jesus (for you.) Jesus of Nazareth was born as a human and God; crucified and died on the cross; buried and went to hell for every man, woman and child. He PAID the PRICE of Our SIN and Took our place. Jesus of Nazareth was Punished (in our place). And took back the rightful ownership and dominion of Earth…giving Authority over all things to (us). Jesus of Nazareth is called the Second Adam because He was percent 100 God and 100 percent Man. We are to govern the affairs in this life in Agreement with Almighty God, His Son, Jesus Christ and His Spirit, also called THE GOD HEAD or THE TRINITY. See, it is not hard to receive God once you know the Truth about (why) He loves us. God wanted a family to accept, receive, love and honor Him. Not forced or beaten or manipulated or brain washed into loving Him; but by faith in hearing how much He loved us first, when we were born in sin: He so loved us enough to devise a Plan of Salvation to escape the darkness in the world in which we find ourselves. God has always been around. He is everywhere – waiting for you to say, “Yes! I choose You God over Satan! I want to live for you and live with You (forever.)” It is your choice. Your decision. Your ability to choose now.
Let us pray: “God, I need You! I want to know that I am pleasing in Your sight. Jesus, I receive you in my heart. Show me your unfailing Love. I will live the rest of my life serving you and only You as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me from a life sentence of eternal death and punishment. I renounce Satan and the kingdom of darkness. I choose The Kingdom of God! I choose Eternal Life with God. Teach me how to live for You. Amen.”
P. S. Know that you are loved and appreciated (smile).
