There are no signs that pop up when you have an error in your spiritual life. No little yellow Postem notes that tell a person they should look into this or that. A person can live their life away from God and never be notified by God that a problem exist between You and Him. A person must seek God, the more a person seeks for accurate knowledge of God and What He Expects of His Followers the more they should leave their old life with its personality and pursue the New Life and it’s personality. James 4:8 states Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you indecisive ones. continue in reading Colossians 3:9-10 Do not lie to one another. Strip off the old personality with its practices, 10 and clothe yourselves with the new personality, which through accurate knowledge is being made new according to the image of the One who created it.. What is in it for you? read John 17:3 This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ . In view of this if we are trying to draw closer and closer to Jehovah God, then there will always be things we can improve on or separate ourselves from while we are in learning and adjusting stage.
Where Attention is Needed: Judging
Matthew 7:1-6 reads “Stop judging+ that you may not be judged; 2 for with the judgment you are judging, you will be judged, and with the measure that you are measuring out, they will measure out to you. 3 Why, then, do you look at the straw in your brother’s eye but do not notice the rafter in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Allow me to remove the straw from your eye,’ when look! a rafter is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the rafter from your own eye, and then you will see clearly how to remove the straw from your brother’s eye.
6 “Do not give what is holy to dogs nor throw your pearls before swine, so that they may never trample them under their feet and turn around and rip you open. Many read this and feel you should not judge someone else. However read another verse from 1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be misled. Bad associations spoil useful habits . I ask you how will you know good associates from bad associates if you don’t judge their actions and how they turn out? Was Jesus warning us about becoming arrogant hypocrites? Yes, we need to apply the scriptures to ourselves and benefit from their counsel. It is true we are not judges, however we should learn how the bad associates or bad practices can lead to our spiritual ruin and avoid the danger rather than test the water.
Where Attention is Needed:
The Dignity and Grandeur of God
The World of man kind today is alienated from God, Jehovah. The churches of the world teach that it is easy to gain His approval, you just have to believe. James 2:19 relates “You believe that there is one God, do you? You are doing quite well. And yet the demons believe and shudder“. It is obvious by this more is needed than a simple belief. Upon learning that Jehovah disapproves of something through your personal study of the Bible you must take action to avoid that behavior. Just as it is written you must not murder, do you murder? Do you purchase a gun and imagine yourself murdering someone? Are these to actions the same in principle?
The word of God shows that your knowledge of the Bible is or should be a progressive action, if it is not you will continue as someone knowing the principled Love of God through Jesus shed blood but not benefitting by it’s influence. Jehovah is searching the world of mankind for those who will be faithful and loyal to Him above all else. That faithfulness and loyalty should extend to His arrangements. One arrangement of God is Marriage. The first marriage created and blessed by God was between a man,Adam, and a woman,Eve. Jehovah expects those loyal to Him to be faithful and loyal to their marriage mate. Pornography is rampant in the world today. Is viewing pornography an act of unfaithfulness toward your mate? toward Jehovah? Should it be thought of as adultery or preparation or desire of it?
We see in the churches of the world no progression of faithfulness toward the marriage performed by God, rather a falling away from the principle of marriage and it designation as a way to fill the Earth with more worshippers of God. If the church does not teach that a homosexual today should move away from that ungodly conduct toward a marriage arrangement created and approved by God then they are condoning such and defiling the lofty image of Jehovah. Revelation 4:11 states “You are worthy, Jehovah our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because you created all things, and because of your will they came into existence and were created.”
We must hold Jehovah God in our thoughts as a Holy Spiritual Person high above the debased. He is the center of all activity in the universe. Angels approach Him with all reverence constantly, eager to do His will. We should hold His Throne and Sovereignty with the highest esteem. He is righteous, no injustice will ever be condoned by Him. He cannot lie to or ever deceive us. The Bible is His inspired word from Genesis to Revelation. Each sacred scripture should harmonize with all others because He is the One Author of all of them. He would not inspired ten thousand different religions going in different directions and teachings just as He did not create the universe with each sun and planet going a different direction. The universe is like a great pin wheel, moving and expanding from the center out. We should expect this same sense of unity and direction in our form of worship.
At one time those worshipping Jehovah felt that for the sinful man to pronounce the Holy name of God, Jehovah, defiled it. This is false, however, their desire to hold Jehovah in high esteem is proper. Our daily life should mirror Jesus thinking and desire to please his God and Creator, Jehovah, to the best of our ability.
Inside my faith in a highly Intelligent Creator.
I see Him as an Expert Coder. Over and Over again He has taken a mass of cells with a specific DNA code that defines what every cell would be part of in a body. DNA denies the Evolution Theory. If life just spontaneously came to life, that kind of life would be all there is on the planet. How would it breed? For that life to multiply there must be a separate DNA code of an opposite sex for that life to go on? With the Enormous Variety of Life on this planet, it is Impossible for this to happen by chance, ever. It makes more sense to me that a form of life much greater than man coded every living species on this planet. The Bible reports the proper order of creation. The reports of creation were written by a man millions of years after they took place thirty five hundred years ago by a man named Moses. This was written while men thought the Earth was flat. Where did Moses get the information? From the same God that destroyed Egypt while it was the World Power. Moses knew Him as Jehovah.
Inside my faith in a highly Intelligent Creator. I look at many animals that seem to walk around eating most of the day while pellets of waste continue to drop from them.
Inside our bodies digestive track is a colon. That colon helps us to control the expulsion of waste. Did we just evolve this? Did some man just hold it so long that he developed a colon? No, even if that could take place it would not change the DNA code that decides just what parts our body will develop. No, an Intelligent Designer is behind both our bladder and colon.
Why did He give us these? That we might have a sense of Dignity as we stand before Him as men and women. Along with sanitary living conditions, Jehovah God created us in Wisdom, every day we benefit by His knowledge. He would like to teach us more through the pages of His Word, the Bible, and meditation of what we read.
Inside my Faith: When Doubts Attack My Faith
My First Responders Are:
Someone designed this body. I reason on the Love and Concern put into the smallest things. Like finger and toe nails, can you see the forethought? Our Genetic Code rejects any claim of Evolution. We are designed to live forever, death is un-natural.
Someone put Order in the Universe: We feel confident the Earth will not be sucked into the sun. The Earth has been here billions of years. Explosions generally blow debris in every direction, someone controlled the explosion that changed mass amounts energy into the matter we see and live on.
Someone inspired men to write about future events accurately as Bible Prophesy. Moses wrote about Abraham offering his first born son Isaac up though he never met him, he describe their life’s in detail. Jehovah gave His First Born Son Jesus. How did Moses know that Jehovah would give His first born? Paul confirms the account and Abraham’s faith in the resurrection.
The Bible Speaks to me like no other Book.
It explains why we are here. Where we are going. How wickedness and evil entered the world we live in. The Bible explains that Someone is Jehovah God. I believe it. in. The Bible explains that someone is Jehovah God. I believe it.
God is love.—1 John 4:16.
It appears today that Jehovah determined that a Heavenly Week would be allowed to settle what occurred in Eden. 6000 years given to Satan to show his rule of the Earth would be better than Jehovah’s rule.
1000 years to resurrect those in the grave and teach everyone how to live in harmony with Jehovah’s rule of the Earth. Jehovah knew how Satan’s rule would turn out, rather than destroying Satan, Adam and Eve immediately, He allowed this to happen that the Universe of angels and human’s on Earth could recognize Jehovah’s rule is the preferred way of life bringing Peace and Security to the Heavens and Earth. Allowing us to understand that wickedness is a temporary condition on Earth is a further act of Love towards Us.
I find the details written in the book of Genesis Amazing. Think of Moses writing about the Order of Creation, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Angels exchanging Heaven for life on Earth, Noah and the Ark, Abraham and Isaac, Esau and Jacob, Joseph and his brothers. Think about how Moses may have felt as Jehovah influenced his thinking about details that were vastly unknown to men. Spiritual men were looking for God and information about how Abraham’s offspring would be blessed. How would Genesis 3:15 be fulfilled? Who would be the Seed of God? Then there was the account of Abraham offering up Isaac that was a prophetic pattern hidden from understanding. Moses may have had an understanding of Spiritual things that those around him just could not see.
