The past three years I have been on a journey! Getting to know my heavenly Father in a way that I never even imagined. Of course it all started with accepting Jesus, the Son of God, as Lord in my heart. The amazing thing is that through my relationship with Jesus, the truth of who His Father really is becomes the truth of who my Father really is! The fact of the matter is that every single person alive is seeking this very same thing and most have no clue that is what they are seeking in life.
See we come into this world born naked and fragile. The design of the living God was that when we were born our parents would have an overwhelming presence of love that would take them off their feet. This I know is true because I have had children of my own and know it exist. The problem with the world we know today is that it is in a fallen state. See when Adam and Eve were walking with Yahweh (God), before they sinned against Him, they knew no such thing as hate or that which is not good. After they chose to believe the lies of satan they were kicked out of the presence of God only to be stuck on the other side of what was only good.
Do you know how amazing this is? Can you honestly tell me that you grasp the full effect of what this all means? The past few years my heavenly Father has shown me that the end of evil is so very near. This same evil knows that it is running out of time and that is why they are acting out at every turn. The same way that there are those who have known God and salvation through HIs Son Jesus, there are those who have denied God only to be in the hands of the one who attempts to keep you from Jesus. Now if you wanted to you could scroll through this website and see warning after warning and details of things that God has revealed to me about Himself and His Christ (anointed one) Jesus. You can read about His love and about His standards that set forth ways higher than we can fully understand. Even in the midst of all of this though my Father has brought me to my knees this week. See I know judgement is coming and for those who are on the right side of God we have no need to worry. None of this scares me one bit. The reality of it though is that I am still here and I am still human.
This week my wife has brought me to my knees. Her health took a turn that we did not see coming. Of course we have known something wasn’t quite right but it is amazing how God will bring the things needed at all the right times. We are foolish and will procrastinate with so much in life only to realize that when we face the possibility of losing someone we love or our own life, the fact that we really took it all for granted in the first place becomes oh so real. Why does it take losing someone we love to hit our knees before God? Why can’t we hit our knees daily to thank God for the ones He does give us to love? The fact that God gave us a moral standard in His original commandments like, thall shall not murder, and thall shall not steal only reflects the fact that we still have morals by the fact that God gave us free will. How could it even be considered a moral if we were forced to do it? How can we actually love if were forced to do it. It is in moments like mine with my wife this week that it makes my heavenly Father all the more real. You see I can have all the knowledge in the world but I am bankrupt without love. I can be the most influential person to everyone around me but still be void without love. All the preparation for the end of days is still pointless if I have vacated from the gift of God’s love. The greatest display the world has ever seen in the act of love, was that which Jesus did at the cross of Calvary. His love for His Father allowed the Father’s love for the whole world to be reunited with humanity again. Not only did this change the world then, it has echoed through time still to this day. It is present in ways that we all take for granted. Then when something like this happens with my wife and it is possibly taken from us it brings us to the reality that we really didn’t do all we could. Look what Jesus taught us!
13 Someone in the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.”
14 But He said to him, “Man, who appointed Me a judge or arbitrator over you?”
15 Then He said to them, “Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.”
16 And He told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man was very productive.
17 “And he began reasoning to himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?’
18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.
19 ‘And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.” ’
20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’
21 “So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
22 And He said to His disciples, “For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on.
23 “For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.
24 “Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds!
25 “And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span?
26 “If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters?
27 “Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.
28 “But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!
29 “And do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not keep worrying.
30 “For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things.
31 “But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you.
32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.
33 “Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves money belts which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near nor moth destroys.
34 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
The Kingdom of God is in the people business and this is plain and simple. The real treasures in life are all the people that God gives us to love in this life. Evil attempts to make us worry about what we will wear, what will we eat or how much can we acquire in life. When in reality we are given all the treasure we need when a child is born. This love should sustain us from our parents and through family but it doesn’t work in a fallen world. Notice in verse 15 how we are to be aware and notice of every greed. God constantly allows these things to happen in life like sickness and things that will bring what is important back to light. See the problem is for most people they still leave God out of the whole equation and then life becomes even more of a mess. This will spiral out of control for so many so fast when all they have to do is hit their knees and cry out to God! He will send the truth to them and I guarantee those who mean it will not be let down. See I do not know what tomorrow holds but I do not that it is only certain in Christ. I do know that through my faith my wife found Christ! Even when my heart is locked in on this truth it still doesn’t mean I will know the things that my tomorrow holds. When we are faced with the harsh reality that we still have to let go of people we love, most will be mad at God for not having more time with them but yet we usually neglected the time we had anyway. This I know to be true and it is the fact that we should thank God for every moment that we have already had with those we love! We have to embrace all the good moments with the bad moments so that in the end we will fully understand that without the bad, we would have never known what was really good. Without us being dirty and sinful in life we would never really fully understand how beautiful it is to be cleaned by the salivation that Jesus Christ gave the world when he died on that cross.
People think that we are living for moments in life but God wants us to understand that life is our moment. Every person that we come into contact with can be a part of our moment if we should chose. This was so well illustrated in the life of Jesus that it should be easy for us to see yet we neglect it the most. The life I have already had with my wife has been amazing. The good and the bad! If only I would cherish it all so that in each day by giving thanks to God and His Son Jesus I can have more good days than bad! I witnessed firsthand how the Holy Spirit of God changed my wife right before my eyes. I witness weekly the power of God change the hearts of those around me all because I speak the truth of God and His Son Jesus to people. It never had or never will it have anything to do with what people believe inside. It always has to do with what I believe inside. Because when what a person believes is true then it will change the fact that they were believing lies to begin with. That is why Jesus is so real! That is why our heavenly Father does what He does by letting us make choices. In the end it will always be His love that we long for! It will always be this love that conquers all forms of evil and when we make the choice to embrace this love then our pain goes away. The mistakes make sense! The heartache becomes heartbeats of everlasting truth that will forever change the person’s moment of love.
1 Corinthians 13:1-13
1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,
6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part;
10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away.
11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.
12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.
13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Your moment of love is your life the same that my moment is my life. God intends for our lives to be a series of moments all joined together to make this life our moment in time. I urge anyone reading this to embrace your treasure that God has given you. Kiss your wife, tell your child that you love them and give a friend a huge hug. Show the world around you that love is the most powerful thing in the world. Quit living for one day and embrace today! Most importantly thank our heavenly Father for every moment up to this point and everyone that you have ever had in life. Forgive those who you still have a chance to forgive. Quit holding on to all the pain in life and hold on to all the love you do have. Let this grow and spread it like a wild fire. Then last but not least, tell Jesus thank you for giving his life for you! Let him be Lord of your heart because you will never regret it. Jesus will take you to the Father in heaven and you will never be the same. You will learn that your love for your family can only grow deeper and deeper! You will grow a family that is deeper and deeper as well because in Christ we all become children of God again. Redeemed from the fallen state of selfishness in this world. So many of us hold on to pride and hurt in life only to push away the true treasures of life. Just think how many people you have pushed away up till this point? It really does not have to be a selfish hate fest in life. That is the lie of satan so smash that lie in Jesus name today! Let the truth make you free!
31 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine;
32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
Don’t let another day slip away from you because time as we have known it will soon end. Embrace this truth and love now so that you will experience this for eternity with God! May Yahweh Bless you and His Christ guide your steps and hearts in the chaos ahead!
