Where there is no Vision, people cast off Restraint

This is so true in all that we do and see. When people do things outside the guidance of God, people get destroyed. Humans follow what the devil stores in their minds for lack of knowledge on God’s Word written in the Holy Bible. Humans succumb to their anger, fear, hopelessness, bitterness, negativity, and self destruction.

LackofKnowledge2

One morning,  I woke up with a vision and the vision spilled through when I was already had awaken and the Holy Spirit of God was still speaking to my heart. In my dream, there was a group of  friends and relatives who were very angry with me. They were even ready to hurt me for something I did which I thought was to save them. I was doing them a favor, but it did not come out that way in their minds. They were in a judgmental mode and disagreements ensued that all were talking at the same time complaining and unhappy to something I’ve done which I thought were good deeds. But they were ready to cast stones to destroy me. It was a huge effort to explain my side to ease up their anger revolting in their ignorant hearts.

The Holy Spirit of God explained that God has given His instructions (His Word) in the Holy Bible which He inspired. Nothing can be added into them. God wants us to do His will and one of them is to believe in His Son and Jesus’ eternal salvation that He offers. This is His Gift to us. He does not want us to boast on which religion is better.

The Holy Bible is already His complete Word, but humans like to over emphasize, they like to override His plans and purposes because they feel that there is still lacking in the Holy Bible. There are false prophets after Jesus Christ came, died and resurrected that are contradicting what God and Jesus Christ have already said. The words that come out from their mouths are not what the Holy Bible teaches. They pick and choose the Bible verses that justify their false beliefs and condemn those Bible scriptures that do not align with what they believe in. They come up with all kinds of arguments and doctrines made up by men.

The Holy Spirit revealed that God already knows the condition of the heart of each one of us. People tend to abuse and twist His Word for their own purposes and leading millions of people to Hades because of the false and added doctrines to what God and Jesus Christ have already established and had been written in the Holy Bible.

In my vision, the Holy Spirit is conveying to me that humans will be in revolt when we tried to correct what they believe in their hearts whether it is based on truth or not. He uses us to share Jesus Christ, His works, His death on the cross, His resurrection and what it means to our eternal salvation. It is a complete work and there’s nothing to be added or to be taken away from it. If they do, it is at their own peril or destruction. Lack of this wisdom and knowledge of what the Holy Bible teaches will get your eternal soul to the path of Hades.LackofKnowledge11

Those who believe in Jesus Christ’s offer of eternal salvation, His work, His death and resurrection and His Power to save us, Jesus offers an immediate presence with God and His Kingdom when they die. You don’t have to add works to it in order to be in heaven in the presence of God. Works are the results and evidence after the saving grace of God which has saved us through faith. No where in the Holy Bible says that you have to do all kinds of works first before you are approved by God. Through what Jesus has done and offer His life for our sins, we are already saved when we accept and receive Him.

Masterpiece

The results of being saved by Jesus here on earth while we are still in this world would bear fruits of good works or good deeds because the Gospel of Jesus Christ will open our eyes, sets us free, make us joyful and hopeful and Jesus Christ wants us to share that Truth, nothing added to it or taken away.

absentfromthebodypresentwiththeLord

If our Faith is based on works, that we have to do more even Christ has already done what God has required for us to be saved and be in His presence here on earth and the afterlife, we truly insult God. That is what the message of the vision I had as the Holy Spirit conveyed. If I set aside what the Grace (Jesus Christ) of God has fulfilled and being right with God, His Salvation and being in the presence of God in heaven could be based on Torah or God’s law in the Old Testament, Christ died for nothing. His shedding of the blood was wasted and His resurrection was just that. His soul was resurrected to go to heaven and nothing else. So all the Holy Week and Easter were nothing but just shows for fake holiness. But according to the New Testament, Jesus came back from the dead ALIVE! He was seen alive by 500 people aside from His disciples. Don’t compare this to other miracles because in this TRUTH lies how God planned it all to save us. This is God’s eternal requirement nothing added to it or taken away. This is God’s POWER. God did not say, okay this is done, but you still have to do this and this and this to be in heaven in my presence. Jesus Christ said it is finished! He accomplished what needed to be done, all we need to do is accept this through Faith and Grace and follow Him and live for Him, for we are His branches. Following Him only and believing in His teachings, nothing added or taken out from what the ancient early Christians inspired by God had already written. God is not asking for anything more.

Christdidnotdiefornothing2

OurFaithisuseless

We don’t really believe in God, His plans and purposes if there’s more to Jesus Christ shedding His powerful blood. When we added or taken away from God’s Word, then what standard do we hold? The standard of man that’s what, their own doctrines, false prophets and their erroneous interpretations of what God and Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible have already proclaimed to be the Truth.

HoldFirmly

Paul said that we are saved by believing in the Gospel of Jesus Christ written in the New Testament. If you add more to Jesus Christ’s finished work, you have been deceived. God will add plagues in your life: fear, hopelessness, bitterness, unhappiness, strife in relationships and many more and will remove your name from the book of life, which means our souls are forever damned in hell.

Weallsinnedandfallshort

You are forever feeling guilty and hopeless because you have to follow the law, God’s glorious standard, like the Ten Commandments; working on your good deeds hoping that God will let you in His Presence because of your good deeds. Our mind is already our battlefield, the center of our sinfulness. We cannot control what the devil can work on: our minds! That’s why we need Jesus Christ and His complete Salvation work.

Jesus said He is our vine, God is the Gardener and we are the branches. vine_branches.jpg

Without holding on to Jesus’s teachings in the New Testament, we will be the same as the rest of the world. We won’t measure up, we will be trying so hard to be good, but deep inside we are not good, we all fall short of the glory of God. Jesus Christ is more than enough. He is the only way to the presence of God and to heaven, no human doctrines can surpass that. He is the light in darkness when we are confused, downtrodden and beaten up by this world’s sinfulness. Jesus Christ is the TRUTH. He died for our sins, He is God incarnate. He is God who came down to earth to save us and give us eternal life when we die and directly spend the afterlife with God and His presence. Don’t believe anything else, but test the Spirits thru God’s written Word in the Holy BibletesttheSpirits Jesus’s TRUTH is written in the Gospel of Luke, John, Matthew and Mark, presided by Paul and Peter and Christ’s other apostles. As His followers, Jesus has given us the Holy Spirit to teach and guide us. Don’t be deceived by feelings and emotions. Test the spirits by God’s Words in the Holy Bible.

The Condition of our hearts

 

God, as I have learned, is BIG in the matter of our hearts. He is more concerned of how our hearts operate in things about how we see the world as He sees it.

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23

Guardyourheart7

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

Donotbeconformed7

He is concerned of how our hearts reacts to Him as Someone who matters to us the most, the beginning and the end, the giver of life and the taker of it.

 My son, give me your heart and let your eyes delight in my ways… Proverbs 23:26

GiveMeyourheart

The Holy Bible is full of verses dealing with our hearts. He observes how we obey Him, how we worship Him, how we present Him to the world. He close-captioned and zero in on our hearts specifically. Our deeds are secondary to Him. If our hearts are focused on Him, everything in our life is in the proper place including our deeds.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Matthew 5:8Pureinheart

God has our best interest at heart all the time. He operates using His own heart in dealing with His creation. His heart speaks first before His mind. His mind is Holy for He is a holy God.  Everything about Him is holy.

for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:16

HolyGod

God knows that our ways are not His ways, so when we become children of God as followers and believers of Jesus Christ, He has given us the Holy Spirit of God to guide and teach us the ways of God. The Holy Spirit is straight living in our hearts as believers of Jesus Christ. The more closer we become in our relationship with God through His Son; and studying and focusing on His words to us, our hearts are transformed. Everything with God is about our hearts. Believers of Jesus not only have eternal life after death, they also have a Holy Spirit that is leading us to be joyful in all circumstances. We go through trials and struggles with confidence in our hearts that God is with us all the time, through the Holy Spirit He has given us. HolySpiritFunctions

When our hearts are

for Him, we make good decisions in life, when we are tuned in to His words, life is worth living and able to endure the things that will come our way whether good or bad, we know that God is holding our hearts to the path where He wants us to go. HolyinHim

 

 

 

 

 

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love… Ephesians 1:4

The consequences after the Fall from Eden

“Certain new theologians dispute original sin, which is the only part of Christian theology which can really be proved.” G. K. Chesterton

Original Sin – the tendency to sin innate in all human beings, held to be inherited from Adam in consequence of the Fall.

If you still believe that all people are basically good or were born good– look inside you and look around you – the people of this modern age – You will see the Total Depravity of man – wicked or morally corrupt act.

Hell is real, life is short and eternal life after death is forever

Psalm 14:1-3 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. The LORD looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.

nonedoesgood

Fools fall for the devil’s deception that there’s no God jeopardizing their souls and their short life on earth. The media news show accidents and deaths all the time.

Genesis 6:5 
 The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.

Godsawevilnessonearth

This is happening in today’s modern generation…

Jeremiah 17:9  
The heart is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure.
Who can understand it?Deceitfulheart

Whether we believe it or not, there is the reality of hell. God is merciful, loving, just. He is omniscient (all-knowing), omnipotent (all-powerful). He possesses a number of attributes, but one attribute that describe the totality of Father God: HE IS HOLY – God is morally and spiritually excellent.

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. Isaiah 55:8

God is HOLY –

“Of all the attributes that create a distance between God and us, it is His zero tolerance for sin of any kind that makes Him – ‘wholly different’ from us. Sometimes we actually imagine ourselves to be morally superior to God because we are more accepting of sin than He is. The fact that we can tolerate sin in others- and especially in ourselves– is not proof of our godliness but actually evidence of our ungodliness.” Dr. Robert Jeffress

OneWayonlyWhen Jesus Christ said on John 14:6 “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me,” He is not trying to be arrogant, boastful or proud. He is stating a fact – a truth to the core.

As HOLY as Father God, whose thoughts and ways are higher than us, there is no religion or other faiths that can get us near God and the heaven that God dwells. There are no good deeds, going to church every Sunday, praying to our chosen gods will get us to heaven when we die. And we are all going to die.  God is unchanging of His Holiness – He is the same God in the Old Testament and the New Testament. We cannot approach Him in our own ways. God knows the TRUE conditions of our hearts. We are totally depraved – sinful to the core. Our sinful thoughts and actions will always find us out. In fact, in this modern days, humans today parade their sinfulness. The social media, the internet, the news, the celebrities, the ordinary people, everyone is committing contempt against the holiness of God. Humans true nature comes with being disobedient and disrespectful against God.ContemptfortheLord

With God’s holiness, thanks be to God, He is also merciful! Godsolovedtheworld John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

God so loved His creation that He doesn’t want us to perish in hell. That’s how much He cares for our eternal souls. God in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, experienced an excruciating, hideous and humiliating death on the cross because of His love for us. He was like a lamb slaughtered for our sinfulness. But that is the only way, in the holiness of God, that we can reconcile to Him. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ came to earth to save us. He humbled Himself to die for our salvation. His death and resurrection open the doors to heaven and, to the presence of our Holy God, to those that believe and have placed their trust and faith in Jesus Christ.  To those that believe His death and resurrection and have surrender his will to Him and walk with Him and follow God and Jesus and obey His commands for our safety on earth from the evil one.

Because Jesus Christ lives, I can face tomorrow!

 

James 4:14 “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” Do not risk the destiny of your soul.

AVapor

Life is way too short!

 

Hebrews 9:27 “We die only once, and then we are judged.”JudgmentDayLifeisshort

God’s Love is being offered to us in the person of His Son Jesus Christ, a Name above all Names who has the keys to Heaven and Hell. God has given Jesus Christ the power to save us, the Lamb that was sacrificed for our morally corrupt nature. Jesus Christ is God incarnate that has the power to reconcile us to a Holy God. GodsLove

External Circumstances

“My vision of God is dependent upon the condition of my character. My character determines whether or not truth can even be revealed to me. Before I can say, “I saw the Lord,” there must be something in my character that conforms to the likeness of God. Until I am born again and really begin to see the kingdom of God, I only see from the perspective of my own biases. What I need is a surgical procedure – His use of external circumstances to bring about internal purification.”  Source: Oswald Chambers’ My Utmost for His Highest

Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” John 3:3

The recent shootings at Sutherland Springs, a suburb of San Antonio, Texas, was directly a rebellion against God. It was aimed to discredit the Almighty and powerful God to prove to all that God does not exist. If He does exist, as the atheists, the agnostics, the seculars chimed in, then He will stop the massacre of these God-fearing Christians to have happened. The truth is since Bible times, God-fearing humans have been massacred through the ages. Jesus’s disciples have been murdered except with the apostle John who died of old age. And the world will continue to kill Christians for what they believe in: Jesus Christ and the Creator of this world.

The devil was surely in the details that Sunday morning. As He controls and plays with the unstable minds of these mass shooters and terror-causing killers, the Godless cheered these wicked acts of terror.

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God- having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.”    2 Timothy 3:1-5 ArmorofLight

Sadly, these types of people are what we are seeing now in this generation of humans. These are the same type of people that God banished from earth in the flood of Noah’s days, Sodom and Gomorrah of Abraham’s time period, Babylon described by the prophet Isaiah:  “Babylon, the most glorious of kingdoms, the flower of Chaldean pride, will be devastated like Sodom and Gomorrah when God destroyed them.” Isaiah 13:19

Our demands for change, and depending on what changes we want for this world, depend on which side we are associated in: good or evil. Eventually through the Bible times, God eliminated evil. Goodness stays for some generations, and evilness reappears again. This is the cycle of life on earth. Unless everyone is on the same page with God, our life on earth is always in a state of disturbance and uncertainty.

It’s ironic when this godless generation is making statements of our nation being divided. The truth about it, is the world has always been divided: evil against good. The devil always makes sure evilness propagates. evilagainstgood

Not unless Jesus has transformed our character, we will not see the truth of God’s precepts, His instructions and commands, and His will for our life: of what is good and what is bad in the real sense and true meanings of these words. These are what represent the Kingdom of God. When Jesus transforms our character and we respond to it, it opens our eyes to the realities of God’s good and evil as He describes them in the Holy Scriptures. And we let go of what the world describes what supposedly is the world’s concepts of good and evil.conformity Since our in-born character is confused and unable to distinguish God’s good and evil in His sight, we are shaped Donotbeconformed5 by this world that is overcome by the devil and his minions. Donotbeconformed6

As Christians, we should put on the armor of God everyday. It will always strengthen us and will not overcome us during these dangerous and perilous times. ArmorofGodIn other words, keep on studying and staying true with God’s words of Truth: His Grace of Salvation which leads to heaven, be always in sync with the Holy Spirit that Jesus has given us, be Christ like in Righteousness, stick with God’s TRUTH, stay firm with our FAITH in God and always share Jesus’s Gospel of peace and deliverance. Donotbeconformed3

Initiative Against Depression

I woke up an hour earlier today than my usual wake up time. I was tempted to do something amusing, but I heard this small voice in my heart saying this is the morning to be inspired and share your thoughts. I have to obey that command before I get distracted and lose the momentum, so to speak.

One of my dear friends has recently suffered a loss of a loved one. She has been posting pictures to accompany the memories she has with her departed father. We all go through that experience in our lifetime and it does break our hearts to pieces. I’ve gone through it with my own father and my mother, and it surely is very difficult to move on, especially when our knowledge of God is limited. Without knowing God’s Word to us, it seems like the sad feelings and depression stay longer and sadness lingers endlessly in our hearts and it would seem not going away. I went through it for years and it seemed like there was no relief on sight. It’s true that the business of life is the acquisition of memories, but the further I hang on to those memories of my dear ones and their passing, I get deeper with my depression and I was just going through the motion in my daily life without joy and peace that surpass understanding.

theLIGHTshinesinthedarkness

On 1 Kings 19 of the Holy Bible, the prophet Elijah was so depressed and ready to give up the mission God had intended for him to do. He was so distraught with his failed mission and felt like God is nowhere near him to save the day. On 1 Kings 19:5 – Due to his excessive anguish of mind and great fatigue of his body from depression, Elijah had to lay down under the bush and fell asleep and he was ready to just die. All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.” He needed refreshment, and God sent an angel to bring him what was necessary.

“When the Spirit of God comes to us, He does not give us glorious visions, but He tells us to do the most ordinary things imaginable. Depression tends to turn us away from the  everyday things of God’s creation. But whenever God steps in, His inspiration is to do the most natural, simple things – things we would never have imagined God was in, but as we do them we find Him there. We must take the first step and do it in the inspiration of God. If, however, we do something simply to overcome our depression, we will only deepen it. But when the Spirit of God leads us instinctively to do something, the moment we do it the depression is gone. As soon as we arise and obey, we enter a higher plane of life.”  from Oswald Chamber’s My Utmost for His Highest

When Jesus came to my life and I surrendered my will to Him and studied God’s Word  through the pages of the Bible each and every day, my depression, that lingered for so long due to the deaths of my parents, had been lifted.

SavedbyJesus

On John 4:14 Jesus said:  “… whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

When I arose and got determined to study God’s manual and learned from Him, through Jesus Christ, God’s Word and Wisdom become a spring of living water in me and His words are my daily bread I take in to guide me on my daily life’s path. They become eternal refreshment that comes with joy and peace that empower my whole being.

LivingWater

 The memories I spent with my parents are forever there embossed in my mind. However, when I remember them, there’s no longer sadness that comes with it. Yes, they are no longer here but I have a heavenly Father and His Son alive in my heart and the Holy Spirit, that is given to the followers of Jesus Christ, who is constantly present in my life. With the Holy Spirit in me, the unknown future is not so unknown anymore, because God is there.

In God’s Presence

 

“We find ourselves in spiritual battles and physical hardships, and the enemy doesn’t fight fair. Though we aren’t spared from our definition of harm, those who trust God and lean on Him are spared from His definition of harm. He is a God who protects His people. Outside of His Presence, we’re vulnerable to the worst kind of harm; but in His Presence, nothing can touch us. He is our place of safety.

God doesn’t call us to be reckless, but He does call us to be fearless. No refuge is more secure than He is.

In whatever decisions you face, take fear out of the equation. If you trust God and honor Him, He hides you in the shelter of His Presence. He allows the war, but guards you from defeat. He protects those who are loyal to Him.”

Source: The One Year Experiencing God’s Presence Devotional: 365 Daily Encounters to Bring You Closer to Him

I believe this to be true. In my life, I’ve seen God’s miracles so many times. As I rely on Him each and every day, from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed, His guidance I depend on. He is really near when your mind is focused on Him. He speaks through my heart that He holds and keeps it safe.

Last year, I desperately prayed to God through Jesus, His Son, to revive this nation again. That Christians would stand firm on their faith, to breathe on His believers again.

O Lord hear, O Lord forgive us.
We have lost the awe of You.
Have mercy, have mercy.
O Lord, cleanse
Our hearts which are divided.
Stir the faith that we once knew
We’re thirsty, we’re thirsty.
O Lord restore
The church that bears Your name.
O Spirit send
A revival to this nation.
Breathe on us again,
Breathe on us again.

For in God, I will always trust and hope on His almighty power. The enemy of our souls is desperate to defeat Him by dividing the world, evil against good, but as believers, we already know who won. In the middle of this battle is where God is in the center. He won’t let those who love and is faithful to His plan and purposes get defeated. He covers them with His protection, He gives them strength.

“Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.”  Isaiah 40:31

“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil for You are with me” Psalm 23:4

“…Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might” – Ephesians 6:10

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up” – James 4:10

“Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me” – Psalm 54:4
