What is God's Will For Us?

By: John Park

The bible is a great book, it's God's word. It's full of instructions
for us. It has promises that God gives us. Each promise has a
stipulation attached to it. God will keep His promise provided we do
our part. What we need to do is find out what we are doing wrong and
correct our wrongs. In this way we can get closer to God by purifying
ourselves.



We need to find out what God's will is for us. It will bring about our
true identity. As long as we live outside of His will, we will always
be living in our false self, the way of the world and we will be
walking in darkness. Living God's will that He has set forth for us,
will get us home, where we belong. God sent His blessed Son Jesus to
show us the way, the truth and life. No one wants death, but what about
dying twice? We all know that the flesh is going to die sometime, it's
inevitable. The second death which God talks about is a spiritual death
that lasts for eternity.



Spiritual death is to be disconnected from God forever. Revelation
20:13 - 15, And the sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and
hell gave up their dead that were in them; and they were judged every
one according to their works. And hell and death were cast into the
pool of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found
written in the book of life, was cast into the pool of fire. Revelation
21:8, But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and
murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all
liars, they shall have their portion in the pool burning with fire and
brimstone, which is the second death.



There will be no world to live in like the one we live in now. We have
free will in this world to live our life the way WE WANT to live it.
Here is where we decide where we want to live after death of the flesh.
It's pretty simple, he who chooses God will have life, those that chose
the world will have death. Nothing complicated about that. Some do
accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and continue to live a
worldly life, not fulfilling the laws of righteousness and proving the
promises of God. Also, it would be a shame if Jesus' life, death and
resurrection happened in vain for any one of us. We can't live on both
sides of the fence at the same time, although many try and even
convince themselves that it's ok. Read the parable of the sower -
Matthew 13:18-23.



People have a tendency to become relaxed in their walk with the Lord.
In order to reach the place where God's will becomes ours, we need to
first follow Jesus. Jesus says in John 14:6 ' I am the Way, the Truth
and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through me.' Jesus
will show us and teach us what we need to do step by step. No one, not
any man can lead you to God. Jesus tells us to pick up our cross and
follow Him. He also tells us to renounce ourself, which means to give
up our life, the worldly life - Luke 9:23.



In John 8:12 Jesus says, ' I am the Light of the world; anyone who
follows me will not be walking in the dark; he will have the Light of
Life.' Jesus tells us to pick up our cross daily. That is so that we
can nail our flesh to it. As Paul writes in Galatians 5:24,' You cannot
belong to Christ Jesus unless you crucify all self-indulgent passions
and desires.' So why is it that so many people hear but refuse to
listen? Read what Jesus says in Revelation 3:18-21,' I warn you, buy
from me the gold that has been tested in the fire to make you really
rich, and white robes to clothe you and cover your shameful nakedness,
and eye ointment to put on your eyes so that you are able to see. I am
the one who reproves and disciplines all those He loves: so repent in
real earnest.



Look, I am standing at the door, knocking. If one of you hears Me
calling and opens the door, I will come in to share his meal, side by
side with him. Those who prove victorious I will allow to share My
throne, just as I was victorious Myself, and took my place with my
Father on His throne.' There are many scriptures in the bible where
Jesus mentions what it takes to be a disciple of His, Read Them! Jesus
has white robes that have been washed in His precious life giving blood
for us to put on, but first we need to purify ourselves from sin so
that we don't stain the white robes. We need to overcome the flesh and
let Jesus circumcise our flesh of all that is corupt. Then we can go to
the Father as a child, immature spiritually and ready to be taught and
receive spiritual things that will make us grow to mature spiritual
adults and become one with God. Don't die with sin, overcome by letting
Jesus show you the way. Don't enter heaven through the back door naked
and in shame. Pray hard, be patient and show Jesus how strong your
desire is and your willingness to want to overcome and please God.



May God Bless You All

Mormon Messages: Why Mormons Build Temples



Throughout history, the Lord has commanded His people to build temples. Temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are holy places of worship where individuals make sacred promises with God.

About Online Prayer Services

It has been said that even a simple prayer can end a war and love can be more than "just a feeling" because of prayers. We'll that's exactly why we adore the art of praying so much. Plus, the fact that it's free to feel and think and thus, a prayer is free as one only needs these two to be able to communicate intimately and ask for help from God makes the task sound more important than anything else. After praying, one miraculously feels relieved -- relieved that someone is actually guiding him and that he's not facing his personal struggles alone.

We all need to remember to count our blessings, and we can do so by praying regularly – well, that is, reciting inspirational prayers. But remember that your inspirational prayer doesn't necessarily need to be as poetic as the prayers from Gospels and Psalms are, so as it can be heard by God. It can be your personal musings about love and life. Even a simple two-word 'thank you' will do.

Another prayer that's definitely close to our hearts is the communion prayer. Christ is our passover -- He was offered, and we share in him as his unique spiritual body. The supper is a covenant meal in which we remember his atonement while eating of the sacrificial Lamb symbolically.

But this space isn't enough to define the very essence of praying. To understand prayers more, you may want to drop by Biblegateway.com. This site is probably the biggest online christian services site on the internet, as it not only serves as a home to 100 versions of the bible (in 50 languages, mind you), but it also has a blog that organizes weekly reading and praying plans. Currently, they have a Lent reading plan that covers all four Gospels in 40 days.

Living the Proverbs 31 Life - Proverbs 31-16

By Patricia Samuels

Proverbs 31:16 She considers a [new] field before she buys or accepts it [expanding prudently and not courting neglect of her present duties by assuming other duties]; with her savings [of time and strength] she plants fruitful vines in her vineyard.

The Proverbs 31 Woman is a good businesswoman and also a good steward of what God has given her. The operative word in this verse is "considers." She doesn't just run out and buy property on a whim. She "considers" a new field before buying it. Too many people go through life without thinking. Now, some of us, on the other hand, spend too much time thinking. Without yielding to the Holy Spirit, I would likely think myself right out of a blessing by over-analyzing it. Following the Holy Spirit's leading is key.

Remember, the whole Proverbs 31 passage is an illustration of godly wisdom. To have God's wisdom, you have to understand God and his Word. This understanding comes through relationship with God's spirit, the Holy Spirit. The more you yield to the Holy Spirit, the more you'll understand God. You will hear him say, "Buy," or "Don't buy." You will hear him say, "No, this will interfere with your present duties," or "Yes, this will work fine with what you're already doing." Your listening to the Holy Spirit will save you time and strength and cause your life to be fruitful, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Again, don't feel that you have to take the text too literally. If you don't desire to purchase property or plant vineyards, you don't have to. Just know that you could if you wanted to. Of course, you do have to catch the spirit of the text, in that you take a moment to think (consider) before acting and never forget to rely on the wisdom of God.

Be blessed. I'll see you in the next article.

Walk with God

By: Wavethe Hugh

Christians say that Jesus is the only way to God because Jesus Himself said He was the only way to God. It is Jesus' claim, not our invention. No religion other than Christianity teaches salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in the person and work of Christ alone.

Every person is separated from God by their sin and in need of forgiveness. Because God is just as well as loving, we cannot cross this gulf and have a relationship with Him
unless the penalty for our sin is paid--eternal death. If God did not judge our sin, He would no longer be just.

Fortunately, because of His love for us, God sent Jesus to die in our place to pay the death penalty we deserve for our sin. Jesus chose to do this because He loves us, and was the only one able to do this because He is fully God (He had to be infinite to pay the penalty for more than one person) and He is fully man (He had to be a sinless human to pay the penalty for a sinful human). We can receive forgiveness and eternal life only through Jesus because only He has taken away our sin and bridged the gulf between us and God. It took His death to pay the penalty for our sin.

Because of His love for us and His glory, God sent Jesus to die in the place of those who would come to believe in Him, thus paying the penalty for their sins. Jesus is the only source of salvation and forgiveness because only He has taken away sins and bridged the gulf between humans and God. It took His death to pay the penalty for our sins.

People must hear the gospel to be saved and God has a wonderful rescue mission of gathering His elect. We can be a big part of this rescue mission because He brings them to Himself through faith in the gospel, not apart from the gospel.

Let these truths motivate you to become involved in world missions. The world is perishing, and it needs to hear the gospel to be rescued. Go and tell them, or else get involved in supporting and praying for those who are going to tell them. We should either be a goer or a sender, but we should certainly not be indifferent.

Get focused on what God has placed in your heart, and reduce or eliminate distractions that comes to divert you away from your divine calling or destiny. Dr. Leonard Cheeseborough's books can assist you in your walk with God.

In Breaking Away From A Religious, Spirit Dr. Leonard Cheeseborough teaches you all about how religious spirits and how they can come into our lives and use people for satanic causes.
