My God, this is a world in the grip of evil. This is evil’s circus! Its passionate hate; blood washing down the street, widows, orphans starving to death: Babies born with with the slightest defect are disposed, dispatched, discarded. It does not take an intelligent man to look around and know that the world is missing something.
This world does not know a thing about Love! Love that suffers long! Love that is kind! Love that does not envy, that is not proud. Love that does not dishonour, Love that does not seek for itself. Love that is not easily angered. Love that Rejoices in Truth. Love that never delights in evil. Love that Protects, Trusts, Hopes, Endures all things !
I guess I wanted others to understand that God’s Kingdom is Open to us all, that his Mercy is for everyone. We can never forget what it was like to be lost. And to be found. When the moment comes, you will have the strength to do what is Right. Where sin abounds, Grace abounds more!
So, though you have not seen him- do you love him deeply ? Eventhough, you do not see him now – do you believe in him? Not knowing your own Creator – the Almighty, who made you and formed you fearfully and wonderfully but instead, worshiping other gods- It is a Sin. If anyone then, knows the good they ought to do and does not do it – it is sin for them. And the wages of sin is Death. And in your struggle against sin – you have not yet, resisted to the point of shedding your blood, says the immortal. And pray this prayer – “I do believe, Lord, help me overcome my Unbelief. ” For even the Demons believe that and SHUDDER! “What do you want with us? Have you come to destroy us before the appointed time? In God’s name – do not torture us! We know who you are – the Holy One of God. ” And then, He asked the man –“What is your name?” “My name is Legion” replied the man, “For we are many.” And they begged him again and again not to send them out of the area but to send them among the herd of Pigs.
But then, is not God unjust? Just as it is written – “Jacob I loved but Esau I hated.” And if you do not believe in God or have no Faith – Faith which is the work of God –does not God condemned you already ? And God says to Pharaoh –“I raised you up for this very purpose that I might Display my power in you and that my name might be exalted in all the Earth.” But condemned the both of them again. You ask WHY ? If my falsehood enhances God’s power and truthfulness- why am I still condemned as a sinner for who is able to Resist His Will ?? That God is Unjust in bringing his wrath on us that he would say to them(the goats on the left)- “Truly, I tell you, I don’t know you! Depart from me, you who are cursed into the Eternal Fire prepared for the Devil and his Angels.”
Is not God Unjust ?? What say you ?
But then, if that were so – How could God judge the world ? A righteous man who was distressed and tormented in his righteous soul by the Depraved conduct of the Lawless deeds he saw and heard but living among them day after day – the Lord knows how to Rescue the godly from trials and hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of Judgement ! And what ? If God did this to make the Riches of his glory known to the objects of Mercy – whom God so often put them into the Fire, refine them like silver and test them like gold in advance for glory? Because they were longing for a better world – a heavenly one, admitting that they were a mere foreigners or strangers here on Earth!
Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God for he has prepared a city for them. So, in keeping with his promise – we are looking forward to a new heavens and a new Earth – where Righteousness dwells.
But see, I lay a stone in zion – a tested stone that causes people to stumble, a precious corner stone for a sure foundation that makes them fall. And Isaiah crys- “Lord, who has believed our message? And to whom has the Arm of the Lord been Revealed?” And Elijah replies –“ I have been very jealous for the Lord God Almighty. They have Rejected your covenant, torn down your altars and put your prophets to death with the sword: I am the only one left and now, they are trying to kill me, too.”
And I ask: Why ? Did they not hear? Of course, they did and faith comes through by hearing but which is the work of God and by Reading the Bible! And the voice has gone out into all the Earth – their words to the every ends of the world. So that they might see with their own eyes, hear with their ears and understand with their hearts and turn and humble themselves and pray and seek my face- He would heal them.
Are my ways unjust people of the Earth? Is it not your ways that are unjust ? But is not He the God of Jew only? NO. For everyone who is willing to accept him. Bu then, the Sovereign Lord, the King of kings and the Lord of lords is a Great God- Mighty and Awesome- who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes! And shows no Favoritism. The God who is hiding and often disciplines us but only in due measure. The God who does not let us go entirely unpunished when we disobey and sins. The Almighty, who forms a human spirit within a person and the only God who can kill both body and soul. The Almighty who made you and formed you fearfully and wonderfully with all its glory so that the holy spirit may dwell in it as a Deposit – guaranteeing what is to come. The Almighty the Giver and Overseer of our bodies and souls and obviously, has the right to demand your soul back from you perhaps, this very night.
Certainly, God is not Unjust! He will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. By doing so, some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. For your prayers and gifts to the poor can go up as a memorial offering to the Almighty.
Therefore, will a mere mortal rob God? Yet, you Rob me! You rob me in Tithes and Offerings! Will a mere mortal speak arrogantly against the Immortal? For you have said: It is futile to serve God. What do we gain by keeping and walking in obedience and carrying out his Requirements of the Law and going about like a Mourners before the Almighty? Certainly, evil doers prosper and even when they put God to the test – they get away with it. And that now you call the arrogant blessed!
But Remember: The Almighty, who alone is Immortal and who lives in Unapproachable Light is a God that we cannot mocked! He is not weak in dealing with you but is powerful among you. And those who hate him – He will repay to their face with destruction. He will not be slow to Repay to their face those who hate him.
But then, God says to Moses: “I will have Mercy on whom I will have mercy and I will have Compassion on whom I will have compassion.” It does not therefore, depend on human effort or human desire but on God’s Mercy. And the Almighty has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy and he hardens whom he wants to harden!
But then, do you stumbled on the stumbling stone? For it is by Grace that you have been saved – through FAITH –and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. If by grace then, it cannot be based on works. If it were, grace would no longer be grace. And not by works so that no one can boast!
He saved us not because of Righteous things we had done but because of his Mercy.
For the only thing that counts in Christ Jesus is – Faith, expressing itself through Love! That kind of Love.
