Heavenly Wisdom

Another day today, my friend and I know it has been awhile since my last post but I do hope you took the time to listen to the messages I have posted, for without any exaggeration- they are life, they bring life to the soul. Anyway, I was browsing for good quotations to add in my photoblog and after scouring awhile, it just seemed to me how a majority of these quotes, usually from famous and reputable people- no matter how intellectual or wise they sounded- most of them don't really know what they were talking about. I have got a handful of really meaningful ones but as I just said, most are, well, mere opinions and suppositions.
I have to admit, atheistic quotes just gives me goosebumps because there is a clear picture in my mind on the consequences of being pagan, it's just a lot of intellectual snobbery & psycho babble- that is it, it brings death, see. They claim to be god-free when in fact the self, science and man-made philosophy is their god. They just choose not to acknowledge the real, existing God, they are too 'smart' for a being more supreme than they are. I suppose atheists come from different backgrounds too and they have their reasons for not believing- perhaps they are hurting inside from bad life experiences, or they were born into it, influenced by it etcetera...I understand that completely but I hope this thought cross their mind too- 'What if I'm wrong? what if there is a God after all?'
That is why I just am so blessed with C.S Lewis's testimony- how from being an atheist he found out that God is real! there is indeed a God. How beautiful...


Men are way too arrogant by nature, if left to our own devices we could really only afford mischief, even the Bible says that, Romans 3:23 says- 'for ALL have sinned and fallen short of the grace of God...'  and that is because of our fallen nature, it is because we were born into this flesh- and this flesh war against the soul 24/7. That is why we are in dire need of God- we need a shepherd to lead and guide us, we need his strength and overcoming power, we need His grace and protection, we need everything about Him.
People nowadays just behave coldly towards spiritual things, and I mean the genuine 'spiritual' and not just a belief on some kind of higher power other than  the God of the Bible- if it is other than that it is heathen, hence, we are committing spiritual adultery.
BUT He knows it, that is why He came into the world and redeemed our souls, so we could attain eternal life. God made a way, all we need to do is walk in it. I know it's not that simple too, well- took me years before I finally gave in to God & all hell will break loose to prevent us from coming to the Lord, from repenting and even now, as you are reading this- demons are trying to prevent you see....but there is a higher power- THE higher power, there is a supreme being and that is God -Jesus Christ is His name.
Living our lives and carrying out all the milestones of life is all good but it is not THE life, it is not the whole purpose of life. We were born to know God and to follow Him, we were born to recognize ourselves in Him.
It was well written in the Bible when it says in:

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.



Now, that is truth, if we believe that the Bible is the anointed Word of God, see and we really must consider it to be thus. The fear that the scripture describes here, is not the kind of 'fear' that we know- not a chilling, bad kind of fear- but a form of reverent fear, to know that there is a God and that He has done everything to save us but that God is also a just God, see. There are consequences to disobedience and ought we not fear the things that we really bring upon ourselves if we continue in our wicked ways. And the next question that we ask after that is- what is wickedness? is it the fact that we commit the acts of sin, which I think we are all familiar with because we have all done most of it- stealing, adultery, murder, lying, filthiness, disobedience, fornication, etc... what is sin anyway, we ask.  
Now, to sort ourselves out with this nagging question, let us trace the genesis f it all, on the assumption that we are all Bible believers- when Eve fell in the garden, before she committed an act with the serpent, the very first thing that she did was disbelieve God's word when He said 'Thou shalt surely die'... when that seed of disbelief was planted in her heart, the act followed. The moment she disbelieved God's word, death seeped in through her spiritually first then the physical death. Now, things really never change, the principle of disbelief means spiritual separation from God, which is death. If we disbelieve God and His word- we have no life at all in us, there will be no fruit in our lives too. See the importance of believing EVERY word? we cannot accept some Bible truths and only obey and believe a handful conveniently because it suits us, that is not God's way friend. We have to come according to His way and terms...we need to embrace the whole Word. Why? because the Word is God Himself, simple as that. Let's see what the scripture says-

John 1:1 "In the beginning was the word and the word was with God, and the word was God."

Friend, these are pretty strong statements but I trust that even if you don't understand it all, just keep it in your heart for the Lord will open your eyes to His truths. I truly believe that if we keep pressing on to know more about Him and to just be prayerful and desirous of the Lord, He will grant the desires of your heart, He truly will because He is not a God afar off nor is he hard of hearing, in fact the scripture says He is nigh to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18).
If you feel so heavy and burdened and just want to draw closer to Jesus, then just follow that still, small voice. 
Life is utterly meaningless and empty at the end of the day without Christ. That hungering and thirsting in your soul is God himself drawing you nearer to Him. That is an honour, so just continue to pray & continue to seek God. If you have any questions,feel free to email me- even anonymously is fine. God bless you child of God.
