It’s not just a Book

” Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.” (Psalms 119:105 NKJV) #Bible

I remember when I came to the Lord, depressed, knowing I had enough of trying to live the way the world said I would be happy. It was the complete opposite. Drinking beer didn’t bring girls hanging all over me, it brought hangovers. Get rich quick schemes didn’t make me rich, they just took my money, and so on.

God’s word is not just a hunky dory feely good tingles inside thing that you feel when you read it. It’s alive and active in doing just what it says.

The idea of a lamp to my feet is God’s Word being the best counsel. When I follow It I see where I’m going and I don’t stumble like I continually did in the world away from God.

God’s Word being a light to my path shows me my direction, where I will end up on this path in life. God’s Word shows me right from wrong. Wrong is what I suffered from groping in the dark with no direction in this world. Right is the blessings I experienced following God’s direction and not my own.

People who think the Bible is just a book are mistaken. God’s Word is a love Letter from God Himself and a how to on living in this dark and fallen world. Without God’s Word you are doomed to darkness and death.

Our Father’s Council

Posted in Uncategorized on August 26, 2017 by activeinspiration

” Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man.” (Proverbs 3:3-4 NKJV) #Bible

Wouldn’t it be nice if your reputation was highlighted with Mercy and truth? With Mercy we were found to be kind and faithful, good and devoted to others. And with truth we would be found with lasting faithfulness and firmly truthful on how we conduct our lives. 
These are high standards to set our lives to when we bind them around our necks, and write them on the tablet of our hearts infusing them into who we are. Standards of nobility in God’s eyes that would move Him to respond in blessing our lives. 

These characteristic’s would bring a life of peaceful long days allowing us to walk with our Savior even to be raptured right into the presence of God our Father. Praise the Lord for His Livingkindness and His sound council.

The Invitation to Mankind

Posted in Uncategorized on August 25, 2017 by activeinspiration

For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.      (Rom 5:7-9 NASBEC)#Bible

It is a rare thing that one will die for another. But God the Creator of us all, sent Jesus the Christ to live a perfect pleasing life to Father God. Then Jesus laid down His life for all of mankind, allowing all of us to benefit from His life and His death, giving all of us eternal life with God the Father. We see that by this act the ball is in our court. Father God has done everything needed in this invitation. It’s entirely up to us to have eternal life. If we reject God’s invitation, the only option left is God’s wrath. Our choice is simple. Jesus shedding His blood is the proof and justifies our entrance into eternity and our eternal relationship with Father God. This is and always has been God’s intention for all of mankind. To be saved from God’s wrath through Jesus the Christ.

God’s Power

Posted in Uncategorized on August 22, 2017 by activeinspiration

” For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV) #Bible

We Christians haven’t been given anything, that we need to fear anything. “But” God has given us Power. That power is found in love and a sound mind, for example, that allows us to be at peace. You take those two expressions of this God Power and through our lives we realize they are limitless. I’m sure there are far more expressions of God’s Power but they all find their source is God’s Love. Just think of it, to have a sound mind in all situations is wonderful. We can rest on God’s Power, in everything we encounter in this life, good or bad. God’s Power, if we trust in our Father God will always preserve us to the end of this life and beyond.
For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” Romans 8:15

Abide in the Promise

Posted in Uncategorized on August 18, 2017 by activeinspiration

” Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us–eternal life.” (1 John 2:24-25 NKJV) #Bible

We heard the Good News in the beginning, that Jesus the Creator of all things came down and becoming just like us and living a life pleasing to God, which we can’t do because of our sins. Jesus did laying down His Life taking our sins upon Himself and died on a cross. Then Jesus rose again from the dead vanquishing our life’s sins and presented all who believe and abide in the Promise sin free. We abide, that is to live closely, to remain, to stand, and endure, to share meals, even to know each other intimately together with Father God and Jesus His Son. What an amazing Promise, and as we see times unfold. This world is drawing to a close, and soon we will be with the Lord forever. Amen.

Hebrews 13:5

” Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”” (Hebrews 13:5 NKJV #Bible

In today’s society a shift is taking place, that is leaving a greater number of our youth being falsely convinced that there is no God. The idea of a Creator makes no logical sense they say.
God in his Perfect care for us created us with all the senses necessary to function in this environment. Yet nonbelievers in order to justify their nogod reasoning, attempts to corrupt our senses by using our senses as the proof God doesn’t exist. 

These non-believers would say you can’t hear God nor see, or touch Him, etc.  These non-believers attempt to say this is just cause to not believe. But we know there are flaws and descrepences in this argument even for non-believers.

Those very senses allow us to experience God’s Creation at its fullest. To look just through our carnality or tangebility, being honest with ourselves, we have to say there is too much that can not be explained. 

This they say is our ignorance, or we haven’t evolved enough to understand. When God says Creation alone is enough to prove His existence.

Non-believers have to stay narrow-minded and live with blinders on, even with a sense of fear in order to maintain their limited mindset. 

Believers in God know God has freed our minds to experience, know, and understand God even through His Creation.

We are content with God and what He provides. We trust Him for His care and leadership, and He has proven through history His Faithfulness and we know He will never leave us or forsake us.

I feel for the nonbeliever who believes the nogod lie, and is damned because God respecting his choice to reject God. He will spend an eternity separated in what God calls the lake of fire. Could this be God’s Creation of an environment that is void of God’s presence?

God’s invitation always is before the non-believers, just as His Creation, God Loving them even from the beginning of time as He awaits their confession of His existence even to their confession of believing in Him to saving them from the eternal lake of fire. May they change their minds.

Not Forgotten

” Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Luke 12:6-7 NKJV) #Bible

This is my response to a post on another social network:

Jesus didn’t just walk a mile in my socks, He lived a lifetime in my shoes, then He suffered the punishment due to me for my rebellion and sin against the Father God, and Jesus died, so He could bring me to my Father God, perfect and freed from my condemnation because of my sin and rebellion. I am completely a new person because of my Messiah Jesus the Savior of this humanity, the world. If they choose. Yes, it’s life with God the Father of all creation, or death with those who reject the Love of God, which is Jesus The Christ.
