God is With Us
God was directly involved in human lives during the ancient Israel. While Jesus got involved when the Father sent Him that through him the world may be saved. Jesus’ teaching was and is about the Father and the kingdom. Not once He said He is God, but instead, He said we can be gods. He did not teach His Disciples to pray to Him but instead to pray to the Father. Jesus did not say to worship Him but the Father told the angels. Jesus did not say that He is greater than the Father; He said the Father is mightier than Him. The Father did not send Jesus to die for our sins but Jesus laid down His life on His own. When Jesus said He was going to raise the dead, he did. When He said to Peter on this rock I will build my church, and He did! No one gets it. Jesus said He was going to ask the Father to send a comforter in place of Him, the Father granted the Son’s request. When Jesus said He is coming back soon, but many still don’t get it.
How soon is soon? Many times we missed to ask, and that is the most important thing to lessen any ambiguities, especially when it comes to promises. When Jesus said to Peter, on this rock I will build my church, was Jesus holding a rock, pointing to a rock or even standing on a rock? To whom was Jesus talking to? To Peter alone, to other apostles? Who were the audience? Writers sometimes when they write, they are speaking to their mind. Sometimes they express their work in figure of speech, sometimes it is literal which is easier to understand and sometimes they mix everything. Whether it’s figure of speech or literal, it still needs to be analyzed for full understanding of the message.
Many still remain confuse why there are so many churches, so many denominations, days and hours of service? Why some of these denominations do not believe what is written in the Bible, and when you ask, their excuse is that “they just don’t teach it” One Bible, One God, believe to be the word of God and yet, there are group of writers that change some wordings, verses and omitted the whole context of the message. There so many versions of “The Bible” with little modifications and then they already have the right to claim it their own. The Bible is the breathe of God written to guide us, we learn and earn knowledge from it. It is the right path to God's kingdom in heaven. If these people can make some changes of God's Word, they may have sinned against God and may be subjected to unpardonable sin. How would God allow to change what he said when He never change His mind and when He said it, He will do it. Why are these changes being done? Are we falling to some lies or deceptions? How can we save ourselves if we are not aware that we are adopting false teachings?
We have a wakeup call going on now throughout the whole world. Many fake news and videos that only add stress and made people more anxious. Time will tell they will feel the consequences of their unrighteous behavior. Let us be mindful and stay focus to the Blesser and not to the blessings, to the promisor and not to the promises and by faith our submission is to the One True God, the giver of life; The Alpha and the Omega, the one Who Is and Who Was to come, the Almighty. Remember when Jesus said that “the Father is mightier than him,” therefore, the Almighty One is the Father Himself and the Lord Jesus said that “when everything are put under His (Jesus) feet, He will submit to the Father so the Father will be all in all.
Let us pray,
Almighty God, thank you for the revealed truth and thank you Jesus the Mighty Son for your redemptive work and to the Holy Spirit who made this enlightening experience. We honor you, we give you thanks from the bottom of our heart, we claim that the Kingdom established by Jesus the Mighty Son is our to defend.
Father into your hand we put our destiny and we faithfully believe that without you we are nothing; you have given us the chance and still giving us the chance to be with you. Father we believe that Your blessing will give us protection and guidance and not a chance but assurance to enter and enjoy your kingdom. We believe that your rule to be obedient is in place since the beginning of time because you are the Father that does not change His mind, the Father whose word is certain and that you will never leave us nor forsake us and we rest assured that You will do it.
We ask you Father Almighty with your Mighty Son Jesus to forgive us for our trespasses and forgive also those who lack knowledge and understanding and offended You. Your Son Jesus once said that whoever does the will of my Father is “my brother, my sister and my mother.” Without a doubt we claim that the word is true and being a perfect imperfection we need help and as sons of God we ask for help in achieving the purpose and will of the Father. When Jesus said that there are many rooms in Your mansion and He will prepare a room for us. It is so inspiring and let our joy stay until we meet you face to face.
Jesus your son our Lord, our brother said that He will request to you Father to send us a comforter on His behalf and we thank you for that grace and we are safer and closer to you having your Holy Spirit within us. Thank you for the guidance and protection, granting that request is a joy forever. With this ongoing virus around the world we ask you Father to strengthen our body, cover us with your wings of protection and the shield of your mighty word. Father help protect the whole world with your love and mercy and grace. May the people of the world acknowledge you that you are the one true God and no one else besides you!
Let the blessings pour abundantly unto this world and contain the virus and other diseases of this sick world. Let the leaders have your wisdom to rule the earth with love and compassion. Let this world wide experience be a wakeup call for all the people of the world to bow down and submit without doubt to your wholeness. LORD GOD you are the only one that we can lean on in times like this and I believe that this request will not return void. Make this wakeup call be the way to clear out all the misunderstanding by every leaders of the world domestically and internationally.
Oh God of Host we submit this request to you.
