God Kind of Faith
Beauty In Nature
THE GOD KIND OF FAITH
I was given a choice to live by Faith or Fate. Then I choose Faith.
For Faith is unseen reality; strong, reliable, viable and does not depend on a force I don’t know; but Faith is personal and determined by my co-operation of the God I know.
Fate is summarized on chance and luck: good or bad, and its uncertainty make me afraid. But Faith has a backbone, though its strength and power depends upon which God you identify it with. Small strength and power means you identified it with a small god. While enormous strength and power for great exploit means you identified it with the supreme God.
I choose not to be identified with a figure-head God: where my routines are sentimental base on practices and rituals; for such is religion.
And it’s obvious that religion could not find God but a true relationship through my submission to the lordship of his son does.
Yes a living Faith is empowered by a living God: which made me, believed in the God of the Bible. Why? Because His love for man made him incomplete: yet, He is a sovereign God, and He is not calling us to help but to be helped. The fact remain that while we were yet sinners, He died to pay our dept, not imputing our sin upon us. He gave me his divine nature encapsulated in his own kind of faith, His own kind of love, His own kind of creative ability and power. Now I have a living hope, I am not handicapped, and I am neither orphan nor helpless. I am accepted and I am the workmanship of the most powerful God.
Which other God is surer about eternity? I know not, but our senior brother’s (Jesus) resurrection, is prove of our overcoming Faith and assurance of eternity because of our allegiance to him, for He is, He was and He that is to come.
A True Encounter With Jesus
ENCOUNTER THE LIGHT OF LIFE
ENCOUNTER THE LIGHT OF LIFE
Take heed, and beware of covetousness; FOR A MAN’S LIFE CONSISTTETH NOT IN THE ABUNDANCE OF THE THINGS WHICH HE POSSESSEH. Luke12:15 KJV.
Then he said, “Beware! Don’t be greedy for what you don’t have. REAL LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY HOW MUCH WE OWN.” Luke12:15 NLT.
My beloved, there is more to this life than the breath, the jumps, (up and down) and the pursuit of money. Acts17:28. The pursuit of success and riches are equally important; but we need to understand; that riches or wealth is not the worth of any man. A man is worthless without Jesus Christ. The author of life has said, that real life is not measured by how much you own. The manufacturer of a product knows more and gives the best description of his product. Hear this, there is something that gives this life, it’s true worth, and meaning. This is the LIFE OF GOD (ZOE) or Eternal LIFE. The God kind of life, the life of dominion that guarantees the kingdom life, was lost at the Garden of Eden. The kingdom life: the relationship between the king and his kings or his subjects is the missing link. John1:4, John 3:16 John10:10. Thanking God for his love, mercy and power of his restoration through Jesus Christ the light of life. My life and your life can have sense of direction and a true worth.
Absence of light is darkness and absence of knowledge is ignorance. All debt has been paid my beloved, all redemption has been made, and all liberty has been given (Eph 1:7). We have been redeemed from the slave market of sin and death: we have been reconciled back to our God.
This could be true in your life if only you will accept the light of life. He is a living personality, his name is Jesus. The only name giving among men by which we must be save. The Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the whole world. He is the life giving spirit. He will always come with a transforming power: engrafting you into the family of God. John 1:12, Eph 2:19. Where God will be your inheritance and Christ becomes your true worth. This is a mystery revealed to us by the Holy Ghost.
Is this, one of those stories I have been hearing before? No, for if Christ be not risen, then is our gospel vain. Jesus Resurrected in power and our God have not left us helpless and hopeless; no we are not orphans. We are children of the supreme God and of the supreme power. For the kingdom of God is not in word (talking), but in power. 1 Corinthian4:20. There is therefore now no condemnation (from whatsoever power whether in heaven or earth) to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit. For the law of spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For God has not given us the spirit of fear but of love and sound mind. We can not be intimidated by whatsoever power because the greater one lives in our inside. We have a good hope and a good future: is better said, that our future and victory is guaranteed.
A life giving spirit, a solution giving spirit, a prayer answering God, is available. His word is a commandment, his commandment is a law. His constitution overrules in every nation. He is a sovereign God, complete in himself.
Finally my brethren, God said, FOR WHOSO FINDETH ME, FINDETH LIFE AND SHALL OBTAIN FAVOUR OF THE LORD, but he that is against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. Prov8:34-35. My dearly beloved, embrace Jesus today and embrace the extraordinary life that will make your life count.
HOW TO ACCEPT THIS INVITATION
Acknowledged that you are helpless and hopeless without Jesus, and the place of God in your live can not be substituted with any other thing.
Accept the Lord Jesus Christ into your life by asking him to come into your heart. Behold I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and sup with him, and he with me. Rev 3:20.
Confess his Lordship over your life. So you will be saved, if you honestly say, "Jesus is Lord," and if you believe with all your heart that God raised him from death. God will accept you and save you, if you truly believe this and tell it to others. Rom 10:9-10. Contemporary English Version (CEV).
Pray unto your heavenly father and tell him you need His Holy Spirit to help and lead you in life. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption by which we cry, Abba, Father!NKJV.
Now thank Him: you are Born again. Promise, as he helping you, you will not go back to sin.
And by His grace and power, you are a member of God’s family. Now therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God, Ehp 2:19.
REMAIN BLESSED AND LIFTED.
