Some people are realy lucky.. they experience Jesus, His love, his forgiveness as well. Sadly too many do not.
When you are young, mostly ignorant of what life is realy like.. you think you are going to live forever, and life is a bright, shining road ahead of you.. but as real life hits you, you hopefully do eventually get to know the truth, that this road is the road to hell, death, pain, sufferings..
and some people are realy lucky they do next still experience God’s love, forgiveness for all of their wrong doings..
Sadly life is not what is is often made out to be.. it is not fun, games, romance, adventures in reality.. it in reality is often pitiful, depressing. obnoxious, pathetic!
Why is life so hard.. sin and it’s side effects are a constant reality
and that is when some people do see Jesus, He is everything, he is the sole life that counts too. They are the fortunate ones!
This is the undeniable reality
- God speaks to us through His Word
- God speaks through Jesus Christ, his works on our behalf too
- God speaks to us through the Holy Spirit guidance, leading, comfort, helps
- God speaks to us through our conversations with others
- God speaks to us through circumstances
- God speaks directly to us and others
God is with us and he can personally speak to us all of the time. This statement can cause a wide range of reactions: even from those who claim they now have a relationship with God, some honestly scoffing and ridicule all those who claim to hear God speak . all those persons who have a continual relationship with God, and they do rightfully say “why haven’t I yet found it?”. There are valid reasons, they need to look into themselves. Some honest people who want such a relationship but haven’t found it yet, are encouraged by stories of those who have developed a relationship with God but also can hear God speak . Many of them wonder how you start to develop and nurture such a relationship with God , not mere men. First, you must trust and believe the fact that God exists and he now is with us all. and all of the time. And God has not abandoned you yet but your unrepentant, unforgiving sins stands in the way, blocks your relationship with God. You need to slow down and obey God not just open your eyes, ears, and mind in to know see, hear, and understand them. You can start by accepting Jesus Christ as your lord and personal Savior by asking him into your life, by confessing and renouncing all of your sins, as well as quietly meditating on God’s words, and Praising him, and also by tuning out the noise of self, others, and the devil, the world around you. Once the background noise level gets turned down you will get to know God better . While in this state will may notice that his voice come to you and you know it is not to be your own. These words will start to give you insight into your life, God’s will and plan for you and he can even begin to shed light on issues that have been concerning you. These words are the beginnings of God talking with you. Learn to wait upon God, to relax, be quiet, and reflect on Him.
“The best way I can describe how quiet meditation can help you find God is that it is like living in a house for many years. One night you wake up and the house is very quiet. As you lay there, you begin to hear sounds that you never realized were there before. You never heard those sounds because you were always too busy or there was too much other noise.” Just as the sounds you hear in your house seem to come alive when all is still, the words of God will be heard when you learn to quiet your life and to wait, listen for them. http://pbulow.tripod.com/wait.html
Face it also that the dysfunctional, sinfull Christian even families are the too often the norm since the days of Adam and Eve and unrepentant sin tends to be too often the cause of it still.
Although the ongoing data show divorce strikes born-again Christians at about the same rate as those who don’t profess a born-again experience while they may use supposedly different reasons for the divorce, the end desire is the same.. greed, lusts. monetary aspects.
It always amazed me the so-called perfect divorcing evangelical wife even, actually an economic and physical prostitute and her perverse lawyers, can so easily see all of the spouses’ sins still cannot even see their own, and why was that? The devil still controls what they do and can see. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/divorce-and-remarriage-in-the-christian-church/
(Mat 7:3 KJV) And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
I too now have often been rightfully upset with family members who are nice to me only during the holidays such as Easter, Christmas, new years day, thanks giving, birthday and do treat you like refuse the rest of the time. Infighting in families is common too. There are many factors that contribute to sibling rivalry:
I have often been rightfully upset with, likley the same persons, the people who go to church on holidays or Sunday morning only and do clearly forget about God the rest of the time, they are only still fooling themselves as to who they realy are.. unrepentant sinners. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/12/26/young-offenders/
As I also daily do read the Bible, it often surprises me how many so called Christians do even hold theological views that are in direct conflict of the Bible, that are unproved in the Bible even in regard to so many topics now too.. All cause they too occasionally even rather do prefer to listen to the too often out of context, distorted verses out of the Bible quoted by the bad preachers instead of reading the Bible themselves. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/11/24/surprise-surprise/
In reality even these days many Christians SADLY themselves have never studied what the Bible actually says about these God given, Holy Spirit equipped, gifted men, offices to the Christian Church Universal by God, so they too are ignorant, they do not know, they are even confused about the role that they all should play today in Christ’s Church. Because they often wrongfully leave it to others to read the Bible for them too they thus are too easily deceived by the imposters, cults, sects, wolves in sheep clothing, false teachers, false prophets, false elders too.
there is still no pit that Jesus cannot lift you out of if you let him.. none at all..
(Mark 4:40 KJV) And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
