My goal as a Christian is to please our loving God be ready to bow before Jesus. I believe that will happen sooner than most people are counting on. They think that because He hasn’t taken His church yet that He won’t. That is poor logic, because it only happens once and God said in His Word that He is being very patient so more can be saved.
My goal and focus is to please our loving God and be ready to bow before Jesus. How do I do that? By being saved by Jesus, pleasing God and bowing before Him now, always keeping the eternal perspective and focus. It is a willful conscious effort of thinking. It requires determined thought which requires far less energy than one may think because aligning with our Creator yields peace and assurance and joy. This is the goal.❤
I van be right or I can be wrong. I try to be right but sometimes I blow it. Sometimes I am wrong without realizing it and there are consequences anyway. I have the right to believe anything I wish but if I believe I can fly and jump off a cliff, I will still fall. So anyone can be right or wrong about Jesus, but being wrong will have eternal negative consequences.
Consider: If I am wrong about Jesus and nothing happens, I have only used this life to do good to others, no harm done. However if I am right about Jesus and the Bible is truth, my living for Him will be eternal closeness to God and reward. However, if I would use my right to be apethetic or wrong about Jesus, then you will still live eternally separated from all goodness and love. It would cost dearly and never stop costing. So just because you have the right to reject Jesus as your Savior does not mean it is wise to do so and in fact will cost you exceedingly more than obeying Him now. God always gives back much more than we give Him and He always loves and wants us close to Him.❤
I have no wisdom of my own, knowing my limitations as a finite individual. However, God gives n wisdom generously to whoever asks Him with a humble, pure heart. And I know that wisdom from God n is more precious than any amount of treasures on this planet. God’s wisdom is better than time, better than riches, better than power, better than honor, better than the best luxury or vacation mansion. How can that be? God’s wisdom provides the big picture, the eternal perspective and view of God and Jesus that allows and instructs you to live in thr luxury of the fruits of the Holy Spirit- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control, with an enormous injection of hope. ❤ ❤ ❤
When someone makes a claim, such as that the Bible is truth (as I stand by), they have to be prepared to defend that with scientific evidence. Likewise, if an “atheist” states that there is no God, that person must be prepared to back that claim up with scientific evidence (good luck with that). And that is true of any difinive statements.
As such, I stand on my definitive statement that the Bible is 100% truth. And there is and cannot be any evidence to the contrary. It has been proven scientifically again and again when people were trying so hard to disprove it. Every story happened. Every prophecy has come true. Every historical evidence and nature itself proves in a tangible way that it is scientifically true and proven. Atheists can offer no such proof and evolutionists, if you peel away their lies and propaganda and flawed dating models, do not stand up to true scientific investigation. But they teach it as if it were true and run with those lies.
God defends Himself. He does not care what people think about Him beyond the scope of lovingly wanting to save us. But His feeling cannot be hurt. He knows who He is and the proof is everywhere we look for anyone willing to study and see Him with the Holy Spirit’s help. He does not hide, He does not sleep and He does not stop loving. His holiness dictates perfection of obedience and humbleness of heart and Jesus satisfies that need by His sacrifice and resurrection for us. We have proof. We have love. We have hope.❤
I had a debate of sorts with a self-proclaimed “atheist” over the last few days. I have a real problem with people claiming that there is no God. In claiming such, aren’t you making yourself god? But I digress. I corrected a truth on a fellow blogger. He had stated something ambiguously, and I didn’t want anyone confused, so I corrected the truth to be more plain. Then this angry “atheist” (what do they have to be angry about anyway if they are their own gods? lol) attacked me with the Bible not being true and prophecies not panning out, Yada yadda, and I simply responded gently and calmly with truth, always at peace in my spirit. Day after day he attacked again, and with a smile and peace I answered with truth. Tiring of the game, I told him I loved him because God made him and loves him and that I would pray for his salvation and goodbye. I did pray many times for the man. I believe those most opposed to God and specifically Jesus are the closest to Him without realizing because they are fighting tooth and nail with great angst and fervor for God, who is true, not to be true. They are thinking about God all the time, some even obsessed, but just haven’t quite decided truth is truth yet, still comfortable in their lies. But we have an innate moral consciousness, all of us. We can be brainwashed since birth and kept from truth and God and still know He exists and that there is a right and wrong. And our own complexity and that of sustained creation (well, until lately because it is the end times) proves God’s existence and presence here. And thr Bible, despite what lies have been said, has never ever been proven false and it’s prophecies have all been fulfilled except the handful that are going to be fulfilled soon. But arguing with a fool makes you a fool, so presenting truth in love is the only option to plant a seed or water one and who knows what God will do to help their hearts turn to truth. Would be pretty cool if he were saved. I want everyone to be saved. But I thank God for salvation and Jesus for providing the way, truth and life for all who accept Him. What an amazing God I love and serve!❤❤❤
I have friends who are single with God. Either this is on purpose, as is the case with our nephew who became a Jesuit priest, or unwillingly because they have never been asked to marry, never met the right person. And this latter group is who I am addressing. When you have the Lord and stay close to Him, God is RI her in comfort and understanding and much more unconditional in love than any man or woman and you are really blessed. It is easy to see what you think other people have b in a spouse, but in my experience, living with a spouse is very lonely. They want you to be what they want, take care of them, do everything their way, disregard your own needs in strong favor of theirs. And my husband has never slept in our bedroom, preferring n the couch. I used to cry a lot. He preferred gawking at prostitutes online to looking lovingly at me and that also made me cry and discouraged me. And guys are never the gentlemen they appear to be when they are dating you and trying to win your hand. It is a deception, in my experience. There is good too, a lot of it, like him paying the bills and taking us to dinner and allowing me to homeschool the kids at home. But I am making a real point here. You can not only be lonely in marriage but you can be lonelier. Sure you have a companion, but it is on their terms. So the key to joy in life is not a spouse, it is closeness to God. A relationship with Jesus trumps everything and makes married life worthwhile and peaceful as well as makes singleness worthwhile and peaceful. Thr closeness to Jesus is most definitely our only hope and what makes all of life beautiful and prepares us for eternal life with Him. So stop searching for another person to make you successful and happy and trust in Jesus and draw close to Him for joy and success and the highest worth.❤
