There is so much talk that everything is good as long as it is what you believe and want and it makes you happy and doesn’t hurt anyone. I believe that is the answer to the wrong question. I believe what is my right and wrong is a fool’s game because we all have such differing experiences and interpretation. I believe we have to always go back to the truth. The only truth I know of anymore is God’s Word, the Bible. It has never been disproven ever. No other book can boast of that. And it was written by God through people, except the 10 Commandments, which God wrote Himself. I believe inventing and living off your own truth is short-sighted and egotistical at best and extremely and eternally dangerous at worst. The question is not what is ok. That is the wrong question. What really matters is what secures my eternal future and helps those around me and what will God allow me to carry into eternity? And that means also what will please God? Apart from the Bible, I am not sure how you would know that. There is an eternity that we will meet sooner than you think which should excite you if you are close to God obeying His Word (which involves heavily reading the Bible and praying) and should terrify you if you aren’t. I believe that motivates behavior in a completely different way when you ask the right question. Many things are ok, but are they eternally beneficial and pleasing to God? That is the correct question to focus all your energy upon. ❤
There is a big list of things I believe. But what is more important than that is what is true. I believe the Bible is true. I believe God is truth and He wrote everything we need to know in the Bible. I believe it is difinitive and unapologetic and stands and defends itself unquestionably and is our greatest tool for life, instruction, correction and battle (defense and offence). Thus, I believe every word in it is correct and true and gives us everything we need for salvation and eternal life with God in heaven through the saving power of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah and only means of salvation from sin and evil. I believe prayer, faith and contrition bring us to direct audience with Almighty God who loves us and wants to have a personal relationship with us. And that is it. I used to have many opinions, but God has lined them up with His truth, thanks and praise be to God!!! His is the opinion which matters because it n is true and perfect and holy. Praise God Almighty!!! Praise my Heavenly Father, Maker of heaven and earth and all that we see or know! May His name be lifted up! May His light cut through the darkness! May His truth set us all free! May those He made love Him and choose salvation! ❤❤❤
When we stay close to the Lord, He stays close to us. When we have humble souls before Him (giving Him the proper respect as God) and worship and obey Him, let me tell you He blesses. He doesn’t control other people (that whole free will thing) so we will always have troubles until heaven, but He promises to stay with us and reward our efforts for Him and love and support us all the while. God always keeps His promises, and one very cool thing about Him is that for every command in the Bible, He also right after gives one promise/blessing that corresponds. Every one. I dare you to look. And He is truth so is good on His word!! You cannot count on people- any person will and can let you down or break a promise. But God never lies, changes His mind, breaks His promises, falls asleep on the job, fails you, is unfaithful or untrue to His word. Ever. You can rest with peace and joy in God and know your energy is well placed and perfectly poised. You can never go wrong with God. He is probably the only One you can ever say that about. If God is asleep only you have, God is all you need. That is so true. ❤❤❤
Ready for what? People are fixated on preparedness for disasters, war, bad water, terrorist attacks, but all that is very temporary. Important in the temporary but temporary nonetheless. I believe it is much more important to be ready for the eternal, that which can only be determined by your free will during this temporary life. Jesus is Coming soon. That has been dumbed down so much, mocked, sounding like craziness and accepted as a sign of craziness by society at whole. “People have said it for years”, “It hasn’t happened and won’t happen”, “Will it happen at all?” Questions like these have been said to me. My answer is the same. The Bible says it will happen and it only speaks truth so it will happen. When? “No one knows the day or the hour”, “It will come like a thief in the night.” That tells me no one knows. So if people claim to know, that is very dangerous because only God knows and them they are claiming to be Him and I would night ot want to be them. I do know it could be today or years from now but we are very safe to be ready and stay focused on God, the Eternal One now. I have are saying on my fridge from a missionary friend, “Jesus is coming today… unless He doesn’t”. My friends, is eternity something to be taken lightly? Not to me. I cannot wait to spend forever with my loving God and this time without sin and evil around. Wow, can you imagine??? ❤
Having faith is easy when nothing challenges it or presses in. To keep the faith in the stress of persecution or evil or ugliness or abuse, which liberals are much more widely heaping on the rest of us who do not agree with their views, is challenging. But we are warned that being a follower of Jesus Christ means being treated how they treated Him. Evil hates the light. It always has and always will. Thank God for our good President who holds freedom dear. And may those who oppose him be punished to the full extent of the law. But I digress, and use that example as one where prayer is our weapon against infringements on our faith. Prayer is our greatest tool because it humbles us and calls on our powerful and superior God to intervene and help. Also it changes your mood. Humble prayer elicits worship for you can not come before the throne of our powerful, loving God and not worship and praise. It is impossible. And worship and relationship with Him puts things in their proper perspective. Joy and peace rush in. You sing, you dance. It becomes clearer that God already won the war and oh yeah, I trust Him with all this. No worries. Faith kept. The second tool is truth. The Bible is the only truth. Know it, read it, love it. Bible is truth and truth is power because God is truth. Faith kept. Can’t fool or distract me because I am grounded in the truth and in constant prayer. Faith kept. I love you! ❤
It is a shame whenever I hear of some people feeling alone or friendless. We never are alone and we are never friendless. That is a lie of the enemy. That is their M.O., what they do, all they do. Enemies lie because they want us dead or defeated otherwise. The truth of the matter is that anytime we humbly ask for it, we have a loving (and incredibly powerful) friend in Jesus Christ. God is always everywhere and with us always and will let us feel that when we humbly ask Him to and draw close to Him. He absolutely loves us and we are saved through Jesus’ sacrifice and nd resurrection. My daughter asked me to draw Jesus on the cross and I never will because He is not there. I serve a risen Lord. He is interceding on our behalf in heaven right now, on a throne in glory and power and love. We are still under His grace until He returns. Stay in His grace is my greatest advice. He is our friend. In fact, He us the greatest friend to those who are friendless, those alone, those suffering. His heart breaks and He is more present for them, more eager to be called upon and wanted. You are never alone or friendless. I am never alone or friendless. Reach out to Jesus. Hold on tight. If Jesus is andll you have, you have the best of anything or anyone you could ever possibly need or want. Jesus us the lover of my soul and my heart is full because of His love. Never friendless. Never alone. If you feel that way, it is your pride and the enemy’s lies you are fostering. Truth is this. You are never ever alone or friendless when you humbly pray to Jesus and draw close to Him. He is hoping you will. He died and rose to get that chance.
First off, I don’t believe we should ever just let anyone kill us. I believe people are brainwashed by their society and governmental leaders who wish you control them into the hate and condemnation and death religion of Islam in disguise as a religion of peace. Allah is actually a different god not the almighty in disguise who wants to destroy and uses hate and fear and intimidation to rule. However, and here it is, God made and loves dearly every single person of every single religion in the world. He lovingly made everyone on purpose. And God is loving and forgiving. In God, there is no condemnation at all for anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Savior. I love all people and want everyone saved, just like God does. No one is without hope of complete forgiveness of sin, loving relationship with God, hope of secure eternal life in Heaven and choice. No one is without a choice in their heart. Ask Jesus if He is real to speak to you and He will in a dream or vision or through a person. He is real and loving and ready to love and forgive unconditionally and adopt you as sons and daughters. You and so very loved! This is true for everyone! ❤
