IS GOD CONFUSED? NO, IT IS WE…

Link: EBook LIVING IN THE HOPE OF MY IMAGINATION EBOOK

“There is no higher opinion than the voice of GOD”

Throughout recorded time “men” have given their opinions regarding what they believed or not, about GOD. All of their atheistic and religious writings reveal what humanity can do to either ignore or to obtain GOD’s acceptance, or through some mystical unanswerable means achieve the knowledge of a pathway to a higher spiritual attainment. In short – man makes the rules regarding what one can choose to do to either reject the knowledge of GOD or be accepted by GOD…

The Bible, the only comprised writings by men throughout the span of time that it took to give us the Canons of Scripture, all reveal that GOD is sovereign in the account of creation, and with the affairs of man. That no man can approach GOD on any terms other than the term established by GOD.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

That GOD is holy holy holy and righteous and sovereign, and is judge of all things, means that what you and I may believe is irrelevant when compared to what GOD has said in the revelation about GOD given to us by GOD through the hands of men inspired of GOD

Is GOD confused? No, it is we…

Among the authors of non-fiction opinion there is not often a book written which presents inspired objective opinion. Thankfully I have not had any University level indoctrination nor do I consider myself an overly-intelligent person. But what I do possess is the knowledge given to me by GOD in regards to my Savior Jesus Christ. This truth is evident through the life-transformation which GOD has begun in me. This book which I wrote is the account of my personal testimony. I should not even be alive much less serving the one true GOD, but I am alive and I am no longer the person that I used to be.

People today the world-over deny that the Bible is true while forever searching for something or someone who can give to them that which helps to satisfy that unfulfilled desire for inner peace and acceptance. The worlds false religions and most authors today are evidence of this reality. But…..what if someone were able to give a compelling and convincing testimony which gives evidence that the Bible is the only true revelation of GOD. With all the seeking and yet no answers being revealed, would you at least be willing to read a book that does just this? Every single reader review to date has said that the book’s message is intense and is thought-provoking. You have questions, I present answers! Download the eBook for free, read it, and then consider the evidence. This is all that I ask of you. GOD will do the rest.

The message of the Christian Gospel is the single most important truth in all the world to consider!

NO ONE REALLY LIVES UNTIL CHRIST IS FORMED WITHIN

Have any of you who claim to be Christ’s followers ever stopped from all the business of “YOUR” life to seriously consider what is the true meaning of the Gospel? According to the majority of those who are pastors of all the different denominational and independent churches in America and many others around the world, GOD wants everyone to be loving towards and inclusive of all faiths and lifestyles, healthy in body and mind, are financially sovereign, and are the envy of the communities in which they live, believing that this is evidence of true Christian expression. A gospel which is built upon the needs, the wants, and the hopes of people.

Contrary to this belief, the Bible is a testament of GOD from GOD, and is given to us for the purpose of revealing the deity of Christ in creation and through the salvation of those who believe. When studied carefully, the Bible tells a very different story than that which is believed by most people who profess to be either Christian or Catholic, or of the many religious beliefs which are similar too and are wrongly thought to be Christian. True Christians the world over suffer incredible hardships and persecution, imprisonment and are often murdered for their public proclamation of faith in Christ by Islamists, Hindus and the observers of many different world religions, while especially in America today we arrogantly live far above our needs and are adamantly opposed to submitting to that which is taught in Scripture as the biblical expression of Christian faith.
Our life is not our own! We who have come to realize the vile sins we have committed against the Holy GOD, and that we desperately need salvation and have believed and accepted Christ’s atonement for our sins are now obligated to be a witness to those who have yet to learn this truth. This calling is not meant to be contained within the safe-zone of the buildings where we gather as is purported by those opposed to the proclamation of the biblical Gospel. Yes, here is where Christian disciples are to be taught by those whom GOD has ordained to give instruction to how we are to rightly understand what the Scriptures teach about GOD, and of how this knowledge then forms our world-view and thus defines the Christian life that we live among world-societies. If not us, then who? This is the evidence of the Gospel’s message which people first see in our character and is evident by the conduct of our lives.

In the time in which we now live people do not want to be told that they sin against GOD and that they must repent and turn away from the sinful life that they love, and trust Christ for their salvation. People are either adamantly hostile towards those who would even dare to offend their emotions, or they want only to be told that GOD is love, and that they are free to live any lifestyle they choose as long as they love GOD and are kind and accepting of everyone they know.
I believe that this is the greatest injustice a Christian can commit against another person. Unless we are willing to confront the societies in which we find ourselves we are not a living testament to the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and therefore we have sinned against GOD. As Christian disciples, we must boldly confront people with the truths of the Gospel and then pray that GOD will bring to life in these people the seed of regeneration that has within itself the power to transform the life of those who will believe. This is uncomfortable and it can be intimidating especially considering the hostility which many people express towards the true Bible believing Christians of today. They hated Christ. Do not think it strange that they will hate us also.

Ours is an impossible life apart from the undeserved favor of GOD whose Spirit indwells the recreated spirit and the renewed mind of the person who dares to believe. We are commanded by GOD to repent and to believe Christ, and to tell others that they must do the same. Only then does GOD willingly give to us the hope of assurance in knowing that in Christ we are declared righteous and that we are saved from the wrath of GOD which will one day come upon all who did not believe. Theirs is a lifetime of hopeless questions of which only the Christian disciple has the answers for. We are the salt of the earth. Let us act like it!

GOD’S LOVE IS NOT BIGOTRY

A child not trained by loving parents will, inevitably, do things that will lead to decisions that will bring upon them trouble and/or injury and even death. This is unquestionably evidenced by the amoral condition of our societies today. This is true in the natural world in which we live and, it is even truer in the supernatural realm from where life has been granted to us all. Just as parents should have certain unquestionable expectations for their children to follow, it is certain that GOD does!

Your, my and everyone else’s opinion about what we think is right and wrong matters not. The only opinion that carries weight is what GOD has said!, and, the only voice that can accurately explain to people what GOD has said is the person/s who believes in and who adheres to a Biblical/Christian world-view. Homosexuality, as well as all other behaviors that are revealed in Scripture to be sin and an offence to GOD, must be confronted with the Word of GOD in hopes of the hearer realizing their hopelessness before the holy “Father GOD” who will judge all of humanity based upon the life they have lived.

This is why the true Christian witness is despised by today’s moral-relativistic societies. It is not hate and bigotry to tell someone that how they think, speak and choose to live is wrong. It is the only true expression of human love that can rescue evil people from the terrible anger of GOD which will one day come upon all people who hate GOD, and who have rejected GOD’s gift of love through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon the cross of Calvary.

This is, according to Scripture, foolishness to the person who does not have an understanding of the message of the Gospel, but, neither does ignorance excuse all people whom GOD has declared evil and are also commanded by GOD to repent. This is why the person/s whose life has been transformed by the recreative work of GOD unto salvation will not be intimidated by, nor will they avoid confronting the culture in which they live in hopes of reaching those who are granted the free gift of salvation.
Having an appreciation for the undeserved mercy and forgiveness of GOD is the compelling factor in authentic Christian witness and testimony. We love people because GOD first loved us, and we know that apart from the correction of GOD we also would, like a child whose parents do not correct them, endure trouble and injury in this life and inevitably, eternal death.

Rather than calling someone a bigot, a hater, or the many different vulgar names spewed from the mouths of those who are truly intolerant, maybe you should seriously consider the courage it takes and the authentic expression of love shown to you by the person/s used by GOD to lead you to salvation.

It is your GOD given privilege to choose to believe in GOD or to not believe. This is what separates humanity from all other created things. What a privilege we have been given to know GOD in this life and to learn about GOD and, to one day see GOD face to face, and will forever enjoy the awe-inspiring realization of fellowship with the man-GOD, Jesus Christ. Heaven awaits those who with child-like faith believes and trusts in GOD for the promise of salvation. But to those who are rebellious, HELL has been prepared. To reject Jesus as Savior and as sovereign LORD is to spit in GOD’s face! This is not something that I recommend you do…

Repent of your sin and live. Repent not and you will be damned! This is the Christ-centered biblical Gospel that must be preached.

WHY THE CONFUSION ABOUT GOD

For several years now there has been a concerted effort by academia, authors and religious leaders to try to convince people that the Bible is no longer relevant.

– Stephen Hawking does not believe that nature reveals the hand of GOD in creation.

– Christopher Hitchens argues that GOD is not great.

– Oprah Winfrey said that GOD is a feeling experience and not a believing experience.

– Deepak Chopra believes that god is everyone, and in everything.

– Eckhart Tolle wrote that deep within the human mind is absolute stillness in which one can experience the ‘Joy of Being’. 

– Muslim Clerics teach that Islam’s Allah is the god of peace to whom we must all submit to. 

– Brian McLaren preaches a new kind of Christianity.

– Joel Osteen happily encourages his listeners as to how to have their best life now.

– Barack Obama’s political stance is that we must be respectful of everyone’s religious beliefs, so that we can build upon this ideal a peaceful, world-wide community.

– Bill Maher’s disregard of GOD is that of a hapless fool.

and,

– Rob Bell’s recent book suggests that GOD’s love will ultimately win everybody a home in heaven.

And by what authority have they come to these speculative assumptions?

Lots of people find these teachings compelling, but to the discerning, it’s strikingly clear that these teachers all lack wisdom. The evidence being that they present to us the premise that GOD is utterly confused, and they attempt to lead people to believe that we can live as if GOD has no law. Please, think objectively. GOD is not confused! 

Of all the texts written to support the thousands of world-religions, only the Bible is specific, and leaves no room for the ideals of relativism.

Scripture teaches us that:

– In the beginning GOD created.

– GOD is holy, holy, holy.

– Humanity is evil, and seperated from GOD.

– GOD became man to be the atonement for man’s sin. 

– Only those who trust in the finished work of Christ on the cross will be rescued from the wrath of GOD, and will for all eternity be loved by GOD.

and,

– GOD will one day judge the rebellious of humanity. 

The message of the Gospel is vastly different than what we have been told. It can then be said with confidence, that all of these people of whom the world looks to for advice are themselves deceived, because what they teach is not based upon the truth of what Scripture reveals.

The answer then to the question behind their questions is that the absurdities of all the differing observations have led people away from, rather than towards, the knowledge of the one true and living GOD. As for the billions of people who follow false-teachers and have rejected GOD’s gift of love, HELL is their just punishment.  

The good news though is that GOD reveals Himself through the person of Jesus Christ, and then actively accomplishes the humanly impossible work of salvation in that person’s life. With today’s confusion about who GOD is and about the clarity of what the Bible really teaches, the transformation of a person’s life is a definitive answer to the skeptics of the Christian faith. So yes, there is the need for this truth to be taught.       

The Bible is very clear regarding the revelation of the person of GOD, the reality of HELL, and about the penalty Jesus took upon Himself, in our place. Eternity is forever. Choose wisely as to whom you listen too… 

LIVING IN THE HOPE OF MY IMAGINATION”, is a compelling story that gives testimony to the Bible being the only revelation of GOD, with the power to change lives.
