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
