THOUSANDS of YEARS part 2
This is part 2,
GOD does not send anyone to hell it is our choice, God has done everything so that you wont go to hell, Jesus has paid the price, but if you wont take any notice you will go to hell and pay the price yourself.
For you to sit in the house of God you must receive Jesus as your savior and listen to His Word.
One day I was watching the TV showing a Christian program I heard a very interesting statement,
"There were two man made towers which were shaken and fell down, many lives were lost because of this, there are two towers made be God which will never be shaken or fall down, they are the tower of Faith and the other the tower of Love, all things made be man will be shaken and fall down, but all things made by God will stand all testing and will never fall down or come apart, and through Gods towers there will be many lives saved and not lost as there was through the man made towers.
Through Gods Word we do have ever lasting life, everything that we do is our choice, God has never forced Himself onto us, if He did we would become like puppets, we were not created to be like that as God made us in His image and He wants us to show His Glory through our actions so that the unbelievers will change from their ways and turn to the ways that God has for us.
He wants us to be His children and He our Heavenly Father.
The towers that came crashing down there was a huge loss to the economy of the world, the people who worked there were not able to return back to work as there was nothing left for them.
The towers that God has made for us will always be there for us even when we stray away from God, we know that they will be there waiting for us to return back to Him, we will find peace, comfort, love, and all the gifts that our Lord has promised to us when we become His followers and believer in that Jesus is the Son of God.
We go through having towers in our lives, a tower can be a problem that we have been living in for a long time, then one day we make the decision to get rid of this tower, it will come crashing down if we want it to be so, or you can still be in the tower and not be getting anywhere, and then no fault of yours it will come down, and you will get hurt.
When we follow our God He has made room for us in His house because Jesus said that He would go and prepare a place for us, so why would you want to follow anything that is not the truth?
Jesus said that He is the way, the truth, the light of the world, and nobody can get to the Father's house except through Him, Jesus is the gate way when we listen to the word and do what the word tells us to do.
The devil will try to attack you with his power as you leave his ways to follow the ways of God, the devil knows the written Word of God and he will try to pull you down.
Did you know that you can have everything that you want in this world but really you will have nothing at all, as people just don't realize it is the devil who makes you think that all you need is there for the taking, the devil is so deceitful he makes you think that everything is right for you, but when you start to read God's Word you will see that the only way is through our Lord Jesus, He said that He is the Truth, the Way, and the Light.
So by seeing the light you will see that you were in the darkness, the devil has blinded you from seeing the light of God. We are what we want to make ourselves, we are guided by what we think, our actions come from our minds, if we cause something we will be in that situation, we can cause bad we will be there, we can cause good and we will be in that goodness, are you ready to cause good or are you still in the darkness and still doing what you think is good but it is only from the devil who is making you think that way.
Get into the habit of doing what our Lord has taught us to do, we will have to give up old habits, if we want to follow our Lord we must be prepared to give up what is not of God.
Yes, you will struggle at first until you get used to the change, Jesus said He will always be with us,it is us who walked away from God, He never leaves us once we have given our lives over to Him, you have to make the first step to cross the line, when you have done that Jesus will then take hold of your hand, I can only tell you what you have to do, it is up to you to make the choice for your first step back to God.
We are to live in Faith, right through the Bible it states quite clear that all of Gods people lived in faith, when they didn't do as God spoke to them they found that things did not go as they had planned because they wanted to do their own way.
You should read Habakkuk and you will see what happens to those who want to go their own way, it talks about the Babylonians where they thought that be being Gentiles they would escape punishment, not so, you see that they were living a very bad life style of wickedness and idolatry, they were proud and boasted that they were self-sufficient and they needed no help from anyone.
If we live like that we are doomed just as they were.
