God is so….approachable

1 Comment

As Great as God is…As Holy as He is….In His nature as Spirit as He is….He is so approachable!!!.  I was communicating with Him this morning and I’m so overwhelmed that I can just talk to Him ANYTIME I want to!!!  I thank God that He loves me so much.  I thank God for the Holy Spirit living in me.  I thank God for Jesus my intercessor and my friend!

 

God is so approachable and I’m taking full advantage of that!

 

Hebrews 4:16  Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

SEEMINGLY HAPPY…BUT REALLY….

 

SEEMINGLY HAPPY...BUT REALLY... SO VERY SAD

SO VERY SAD

 

 

I was so sadden this morning to learn that a very funny comedian and talented actor had taken his own life.  How could someone who was so funny on the outside… be so sad on the inside?  I wish I could have talked to Robin and shared with him some good news.

When I meet people I don’t know…they look OK on the outside….but I wonder what’s going on in their insides.  I wonder if their soul is saved.  Have they made a decision for Jesus Christ?

People can look one way on the outside and feel another way on the inside.  Robin Williams seemed to have it all…money,fame, and talent but one thing he didn’t have was hope and peace.

Millions of people are like that.  Some other notables who had no peace were Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston , Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Don Cornelius, Donny Hathaway, Ernest Hemingway,Freddie Prinze , Herve`Villechaize(Fantasy Island) to name a few and the list of regular everyday people who had no peace and lost their lives to hopelessness is in the millions.

I was that person who had no hope or peace… so I know what I’m talking about!!!  I was completely healed in 1983!  There is Hope and there is peace available and the only person I know who can give it is Jesus Christ.  Let’s look around and see who we can share this good news with.  Let’s pray for the famous and share with those who cross our paths.

If you’re the one who has no peace or hope and are suicidal right this minute….call 911, go to an emergency room, mental health facility right away for your safety.  Please!!  Emergency help is available!

Hebrews 4:14-16

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,  Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

 

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence”

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence”

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence”

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence”

confidence!

confidence!

confidence!

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

***********that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need************

 

I read this today and I was reminded to….trust God!!!

I must let God know that I completely believe in His ability to take care of me!!

I must be like the woman with the issue of blood reaching out for Jesus help because she truly believed in her heart and mind that Jesus could and would heal her.

I am speaking to someone today…you have been asking God for something and He is telling me to tell you…don’t just ask but…..BELIEVE that He can do it!!!

Faith moves the heart of God.

Pray to God…asking in JESUS name as the Lord has directed us to do.

Be confident…God’s grace is there for you!

God’s word is true!!!

Hebrews 4:14-16

Thinking about my God

Thinking about God best

 

Last week I was thinking about God creating me.  God desired to create human beings.  When He thought about creating us He knew that we would eventually be evil because He knew if He gave us free will we would act out. Evil was not a mistake and it’s real.   So God already knew He would have to have a plan in place  that would put us right with Him.  Jesus wasn’t an… uh oh!…they need a savior or here I come to save the day kinda thing.  Jesus was their plan all along.

So this is what really touched my heart.  That God Himself would save us.  Jesus and the Father are one….the Holy Spirit is God and they have been with this created world from the beginning.  And they had a plan to…make us and save us!!!!

Genesis 1:1 Says… In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

John 3:16 Says…For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

So God created a world that He SO LOVED!  I’m so loved….you’re so loved!

Then God Himself fixed the divide that separated humans from Himself.  One member of the trinity would sacrifice Himself and one member of the trinity would be present on earth to inhabit and help people.  This was all done why?   Because  God so loved  the world He created.

We are different from all of God’s other created beings because we were made in His image and we are His children.  We are different because we have …..Suffered!  The rewards will be great for us as stated in the book of Revelation Chapter 2.

Our purpose is not to make it big here on earth… but to make it big there….in Heaven with God our Father.  It’s all about Him.  Our whole lives are about our relationship with God.  I belong to….God!  He loves me so!   He even put the Holy Spirit in my human body.  He had a plan to take care of me.  I feel like I need to let go of my attachment to this world. One day it will let go of me and I’ll be in with God…but right now…I’m just feeling…  that I want to focus on my God so much more.

I’m trying hard to walk with God all day every day.  I’m going to hold on to His grace for dear life until that grace carries me right up to God’s loving arms.

These are very strange and difficult times here on earth right now.  I feel to share that we must turn inward in order to shine outward.  We who are Christians have the Holy Spirit living in us.  This is God’s unique way that He planned to help us, guide us and comfort us 24/7.  This is a huge blessing!  I just wrote my last blog about the Holiness of God because I feel it’s very important to really know who God is to bolster your faith and have hope.

God is in control of this universe …He knows all about the event’s of late and has lots of supernatural grace available for you to endure every trial that might come your way!  We are not to fear but we should turn inward to our paraclete, our helper.  The Holy Spirit is here with us. I’m going through trials also and I feel the help/grace of God in a powerful way.   My last few blogs have come from the inner strength and help I feel coming from the Lord…and I’ve shared this info with you all.

I hear God saying…”children turn to me.….children walk with me….no matter what happens…I will never leave you.  Let me hold your hand and walk  you through your trials.”

We may have to go through some hard times….but we have a helper…The Holy Spirit is here!

Hold on…keep your eyes on the Lord.  Life goes by fast and one day you will NEVER SUFFER ANYTHING EVER AGAIN!  Hang in there!  Fear not!  Let go of this world and hold on to Jesus!

Don’t try to understand everything….but bolster up your relationship with God and walk with Him….today.  Don’t wait until you’re in some kind of trouble….call on Him now and praise Him just because He’s God.

The mystery of the Holiness of God

1 Comment

God is holy best

 

Exodus 15:11 Who among the gods is like you, LORD? Who is like you– majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?

I have been obsessed with the Holiness of God for this past year.  I feel in my heart that until we try to understand as best as we can about the Holiness of God….we don’t get who God is and what our lives are really about.  When Moses met God in the desert…God presented Himself as a burning bush to him.  Moses had to take his shoes off because the bush and the area around the bush were so holy that it was disrespectful for Moses to even walk in that area with his shoes on.  When God wants to show you who He is… He will show you His glory which I feel is the essence of His Holiness.  When Adam and Eve sinned and God came down here to deal with them….He clothed them with animal skins and I believe they didn’t see a manifestation of God’s glorious nature.  Why?  Because they didn’t honor Him with obedience and holiness.  They had sinned and needed a blood sacrifice.  They were so disobedient that they were in no place to receive the blessing of experiencing holiness and glory of God. 

Moses needed to understand the Holiness of God because He was going to do mighty things for God in the future and he had favor.  In order to have on ongoing and intimate relationship with God….you must understand His Holiness.

 

God is holy filler

My meaning of the Holiness of God….   There is only one God because He is so unique that there is no other living perfect and holy being anywhere.  He is the…I Am!  He just… Is!  He has no beginning and He has no end.  God has no impure thoughts of any kind, no sinful actions, having an unexplainable purity that is so unexplainable that it is a total mystery to every human.  God is separate from all mankind or any kind of being anywhere… in the past, now and forever.  This kind of holiness is so unique that even the nature of God’s physical appearance is pure light… brighter than anything know to exist.  He’s supernatural purity that requires preparation just to be in the presence of one so holy.  This kind of holiness makes everything else without holy cleansing very filthy, dirty and utterly sinful.  Mankind can never fully comprehend this kind of supernatural and powerful state of perfection.  In all this explanation…it is still impossible to explain the mystery of God’s holiness…but  the Holy Spirit will help you to be holy if you allow Him to do what He knows what to do in you.  He will use the word of God to do this in your life.   God’s holiness is truly incomprehensible to the unsaved and partly compensable to Christians.

When I think of God’s Holiness…it represents to me who God is and why my relationship with Him depended on what Jesus Christ accomplished for me on the cross.  I’m nowhere in God’s league except that I was made in His image.   My heart and soul were far away from God until Jesus came along and saved me.  I have the third person of the trinity living in me right now… but even so… that is not enough for me to be in God’s presence now.  I still sin and need forgiveness.  I’m not pure enough to be in God’s presence in my present body.  I will one day be able to be in God’s presence because Jesus made it possible for me to be presented ” faultless”  before God and I WILL be able to stand before Him in all of His Glory, power ,majesty and……Holiness.  Halleluiah!!!!!

God’s Holiness is so mysterious that there really is no way for me to grasp the entire concept of it.  I would not be able to function in this life if I fully understood it, because I would be ridden with guilt and fear from my sinful filthy heart.  I am functioning now only because of Jesus and the Holy Spirit and because of the fact that I can feel Gods love for me.  If it wasn’t for Jesus….my human life would be a crushing issue.  It is a fact that I must deal with my actions but the truth is… in light of God’s Holiness… I know I must allow the Holy Spirit to help me balance my human nature and keep clean enough to live a righteous life here on earth.

 

God is holy last

 

I think about who God is all the time.  I try to look beyond the word God in my mind to see who He really is.  By that I mean that there is the time about God before He created earth which is His eternal existence and His perfect holy nature.  When I look past creation in that way… it is frightening to me because God’s a mysterious super powerful pure being. In the scope of my little mind…it’s amazing that there is something so out of my scope of earthly and human knowledge. 

I live in a dim lit world and He is…bright…light…perfection…extremely powerful…and without one bad though or deed, he’s sinless and pure.  These words I used are really insulting to use about Him because they don’t come close to who He is and what His Holiness encompasses.  If I really could comprehend this…I would never want to do anything that would go against His nature.  I do though.  I feel bad about it but I have forgiveness now because of Jesus and I know I will one day wear a white blood-washed robe.   I know that I’m truly blessed to be this magnificent God’s child.

If people understood about the Holiness of God… the first thing they would do would be to cry out for….mercy for their souls.  The next thing they would do is to stop using His name so flippantly.  This is what I did when I became a committed Christian.  I was soooo sorry for everything I ever did wrong.  I only use God’s name with the utmost respect now!  God’s Holiness shines bright in light of my ungodly human nature.

 

God is holy filler

Because of the mystery of the Holiness of God…the world acts like they act because they don’t get God.  They don’t get Him at all.    Even people who say that they are Christians and still do lots of hurtful things to others…don’t get the Holiness of God.  You can’t get God and still act really ugly or unholy.  Our Father is….Holy….Jesus is ….Holy….and the third person in this Godhead is….The HOLY Spirit   We must try to be like them….holy.

What can we do to understand the Holiness of God?  Well… the first thing is to read as much as possible what the bible says about God and what He requires of us.  Talk to God a lot.  Look around you…go outside…look up at the heavens and you will see how incredible God is.  My best advice is to meditate on who God is.   Ask God to help you to get the concept of His Holiness.  You won’t understand it in His realm…but He will help you to get it like He did Moses.  I doubt whether you’ll see a burning bush…but God has ways of getting knowledge to you because of the Holy Spirit.  Even if you are NOT a Christian…God can and does communicate with you though the Holy Spirit trying to tell you truth either in your mind and or sending someone to speak to you.

The mystery of The Holiness of God is something that is needed to be thought about… daily.  We may not understand it all… but if we want to have an outpouring Of God….If we want a revival…if we want God’s blessing… then we need to be thinking about…”THE HOLINESS OF  OUR GOD”.

1 Peter1:15-17

15 but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; 16 because it is written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.” 17If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;…

The fellowship of His sufferings… Whoa!

Suffering best

 

You mean to tell me we are to join Jesus in the fellowship of His suffering?  We are to take up our cross and follow Him?  Are we to suffer because Jesus did?  The answer is yes to those questions… but it’s much deeper than that.  There is a clear purpose for suffering and it all has to do with God.  Jesus really suffered for us in many ways…(note- the scripture says the fellowship of His sufferings…with an “s”)  Our precious Lord and Savior experienced great sorrow because of our sins.

Not only did Jesus suffer on the cross…but I believe He suffered the minute He was conceived in Mary’s womb because it was out of Jesus’ comfort zone.  To be God and then become a human was not the best thing for a very Highly Exalted Holy and Supreme  being named God or “I AM” as He calls Himself.  But He became human for us because… God so loved the world.  He made a way to help us even before the world was created! He was part of His own plan for us!   God loved us first….God humbled Himself first.  He bent down and scooped us up into His loving arms when He became a man and submitted Himself to such humiliation and agony that the cross and being a human brought Him.    Jesus suffered for us and Paul’s prayer was…. That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; (Philippians 3:10)

We are told in the bible that we are going to suffer in 1 Peter 4:12-13:

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation.…

Most of my Christian life has been a struggle to figure why I have been suffering and why the suffering of others.  I try to encourage others all the time and I pray for their suffering to be over.   We are suppose to pray but God has us go through suffering for a reason and it seems as if suffering is sharing in the fellowship with Christ suffering.    I’ve always thought that suffering is a really bad thing…but that can’t be right I light of what the “bible” says about suffering.   Suffering does a great work in our lives and we are told to…2Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.…  (James 1:2).

 

That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; (Philippians 3:10)

That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; (Philippians 3:10)

We Christians can get through our suffering.   God‘s response to Paul when he asked for a healing from his physical suffering ….But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. ( Corinthians 12:9)

God promised that if you…Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrew13:5)

So we need to…Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1Peter5:7)

Instead of dwelling on all the mess the devil is doing, Instead of spending a lot of time worrying about our troubles… Instead of concentrating on all that I not right in our lives and this world….we should put our focus on who made us, who saved us and humble ourselves before our Holy God and repent for all wrong doing.  We should spend a lot of time worshipping and loving our Lord and Savior.   We should spend a tremendous amount of time walking with God!  This is how we can adapt in ”suffering”.

Nobody in this world enjoys suffering and pain.  I know I don’t for sure…but I’m beginning to look at suffering in a  different way which is more helpful and understanding.  Job said to His wife… He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” (Job2:10)   “Though he slay me, yet will I trust Him” (Job 13:15). God should get Glory from us whether our prayers are answered right away or if we have to wait or if He just says no to our request.

There is a lot of suffering in our lives and in this world.  We couldn’t possibly understand it all.  In all the years of humanity…nobody has ever been able to understand tragic events, pain and suffering.  Some People cry out to God and some curse Him. Some accuse Him of being unfeeling, mean and unloving.  I know this for a fact….we are not going to understand it in our life time…but we will understand it when God reveals all to us in our next life after our death in this one.  That is a fact…so for now….for our peace of mind…we need to hold on tightly to the grace of God….we need to walk very close to Jesus, we need to read our bible and put our trust in God.  If we don’t do this and our time of suffering comes….it will take us a down a dark and lonely road. We will become…afraid.   We Christians are all going to go up the rough side of the mountain.  We can go with the supernatural helping power of God or we can go it alone with our own weak strength.  We have a choice.

Spend time just concentrating on Christ pain and suffering, thanking Him for His sacrifice.  Think about how a mighty powerful God became a man to bring you close to Himself.  Spend lots of time worshiping Jesus and walking with Him.   Don’t be afraid of sharing in the fellowship of His suffering!  Jesus understands this suffering and will be there as we experience this difficult but rewarding part of our Christian journey.
