Part 2 – Emotional Wellness Series

The lost Glory is a buried treasure of lost humanity, and those who try may not find it with imperfect human flesh. God is perfect and to be with Him is to be perfect, and that will be hard while all the glories are imprisoned in this borrowed body full of sins.

The Purpose, Power, and Authority of God’s Glory will deliver us from every evil work and thought. We must demonstrate how we long to achieve a spiritual living and glorious life when lies, deceit, and temptations surround us. Only having a righteous mind can do that, but How? The key is to be creative and use our free will without losing His grip, stay mindful, and stay on the ground of humbleness.

We must follow the people before us and how God forgave them of their sins. Psalm 91: NIV—”He who dwells in the shelter of the Highest will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and the deadly pestilence. Remember King David when he humbles himself, asking God to forgive him, recorded in Psalm 51 “Have mercy upon me, O God.” “Psalm 46 says God is our refuge and strength, a present help in trouble.” 

In reality,  no matter if all the patterns for forgiveness are on our faces, we keep on sinning; we do not even need to find sins because sinning is accessible and available anytime, especially in difficult times. That is the challenge we face every day. However, we have the key to overcome it, use it, and we will find it one day because God promises to be our refuge. When our world is shaken by not allowing sin to use us, it is the most significant time to use the power of the Word. 

God has not failed us; He will help us no matter what. We must bear in mind that everything on this earth is temporal, and what He created and made in His image that we lost, we can reclaim to obtain back our spiritual existence, which is under the bondage of evilness. It will return to God, who owns it, and proceed with righteous purposes.

Christians are overloaded with speculation and pretenses that cloud the real purpose of why we are here today, struggling to reclaim the lost Glory. 

Most Christians are attuned to being persecuted and claim that it is the Christian way of living. Being persecuted almost all the time is typical of Christian conversation without analyzing the truth that sometimes we are the persecutor. We must remember that Christianity has the darkest hour in history that we cannot be proud of, like killing for the sake of the cross. 

I heard many Evangelical Christians accusing other Christians of paganism, legalism, Unitarianism, modalism, and even Adventists that serve on Saturdays. Even the non-Christians like Mormonism, Unification, Moonies and other isms cannot escape from the eyes of the beholder. We should not lift ourselves and put others down just because they disagree with our belief system.

We have to strengthen our weaknesses by minding our own business. We have to be Christian in the true meaning of it – to be in Christ-likeness is godly work. We should not feel very proud to be Christians but humbled, including the way we walk as the Scriptures tell us to walk and talk the way the Spirit wants us to talk. We want to bless others as others will bless others too, until we make a complete turn and the Father our LORD will make His turn and bless us.

God, the Father Almighty, loves us, and we can show that respect by showing Him that we follow His will and love one another in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
