Oh, the hypocrisy of it all—believers in Christ who declare they believe in all Scriptures, yet when they are challenged to prove it – crickets.
To worldly people, a life that is filled with money, possessions, family, friends, fame, and so forth is a rich life. To Father God, the rich life is one that is filled with Him—His Blessings, which are as follows: His Presence (Shekinah Glory), His Love, His Grace, His Mercy, His Forgiveness, His Kingdom, His Son, His Spiritual Gifts, and so forth.
The Holy Spirit seals believers in Christ. Father God allows the Holy Spirit to seal Christ’s followers so that they can feel safe and secure in God’s Love, Power, and Promises. This sealing accomplishes Father God’s sign, sealed, and delivered spiritual objectives.
But God . . . these two little words always encourage me. They always lift me up. They also always remind me of God’s Mercy and Grace, because they always point to the Good News that follows them.
ALL the Hebrew and Roman religious leaders’ traditions of men that have been added to the Word of God are why so many believers in Christ who will be living right before the Tribulation Period begins will be so unprepared and unalert. They will be the carnal believers and the natural men and women (unbelievers – Jews and Gentiles) who will miss the Rapture and end up suffering during the Tribulation Period.
Even though all believers in Christ are promised eternal life, all believers must understand that believing is more than giving intellectual assent to Christ’s Existence or His Redemptive Work. Believing also means Christ’s Ekklesia (His One Body of Believers or One Community of Faith Believers) is His collective Bride who uses everything He gave to Her to help Her become His saintly Overcomers.
Our prayers to Father God don’t have to follow any “church” or man-made methods or models. Our prayers also don’t have to be difficult or lengthy. Furthermore, Father God doesn’t command us to pray prayers that are eloquent or grammatically correct. Actually, if we are praying sincerely and humbly, our prayers can be very simple.
Let us courageously, powerfully, and godly live to the fullest the lives Father God has allowed us to have at such a time as this. That is the best way we can thank Him for letting us see 2018.
Whatever is certain. Whatever is meaningful. Whatever is beautiful. Whatever brings you joy. Whatever makes you happy. Whatever is best for you. Think about all of that throughout the remainder of your holiday.
Most believers in Christ today call themselves an epithet that neither Christ Jesus nor His first-century Disciples turned Apostles say in the Holy Bible followers of Christ should call themselves. They call themselves “Christians.” Most believers in Christ today also claim to worship God according to the established ways of their organized religion, faith, or belief that neither Christ Jesus nor His first-century Disciples turned Apostles declare in the Holy Bible are how Father God wants followers of Christ to worship Him. These believers worship Father God according to the ways that were established by man-made organized “Christianity.”
