Constant Contact

20140103-183828.jpg
Enoch lived 365 years, walking in close fellowship with God. Then one day he disappeared, because God took him. (Genesis 5:23, 24 NLT)

God created mankind so intellect, emotional and decisive to have meaningful relationship and fellowship.

This expectation was ruined when Adam sinned, developed guilt, become unwilling to repent and couldn’t face God.

After many generations Enoch for what ever reason “abnormally” fell in love with God and had a constant fellowship with Him – which thrilled God so much that He can’t let him die and lose forever. God took Enoch to be with Him permanently.

John 3:16 says, God sent His Son Jesus to us – so our sin, guilt, unwillingness to repent & reconcile (Adamic nature) be removed, and we can have constant fellowship with God and live permanently with Him!

For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Do you realize your future?

My guilt overwhelms me— it is a burden too heavy to bear… But I confess my sins; I am deeply sorry for what I have done… Come quickly to help me, O Lord my savior. (Psalms 38:4, 18, 22 NLT)

Self-realization without hope of salvation leads to all kind of superstitious and cult beliefs. This result in false humility and fake godliness, only becoming a blind leading blinds.

Repentance is the most critical element in each human being that has to exhibit when a self-realization occurs, in order to escape the foolishness of religion, cults and atheism.

The attempt of such genuine repentance opens the door of salvation – the knowledge of God, His love for us and His plan to restore our lives from all remorse.

Self-realization
Romans 3:23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

God made the way for our salvation
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 5:8-11 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.

Our right to receive the free gift
Romans 10:9-10, 13 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

But you, keep going

When they found him, they said, “Everyone is looking for you.” But Jesus replied, “We must go on to other towns as well, and I will preach to them, too. That is why I came.” (Mark 1:37, 38 NLT)

Lord Jesus kept His ministry simple to the point why He came – to preach the good news in every town and villages before He would finish for us on the cross.

Signs & wonders – healing, deliverance and miracles are only the outcome of His preaching and teaching; never in His agenda but always His will!

He set it clear to His disciples that they should never seek the crowd that wants them but go seeking the souls that doesn’t know that they are in need of God. By giving the good news, their eyes will wide open to the truth that sets them free!

There is not one truly free without Christ Jesus. There are billions in the waiting list – waiting for you to come and tell this good news. Let’s go!

So the message about the Lord spread widely and had a powerful effect. Afterward Paul felt compelled by the Spirit to go over to Macedonia and Achaia before going to Jerusalem. “And after that,” he said, “I must go on to Rome!” Acts 19:20-21

Happily ever after

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. (Psalms 16:11 NLT)

If a choice is given to live or to die, not one person would opt to die. Everyone wants to live; in fact live eternally if possible.

There are millions of fairytale stories that all ends with “… and they happily lived ever after!” Why? Because this is what every kid wants to hear. This is what every parent wish for their children. This is what a true love wants in all its relationship!

Why is then it is too hard to believe that God loves us so dearly and send His one and only son so whoso ever believe in Him shall not die but live happily ever after?

The gift is salvation (happily ever after life) in Christ Jesus, Who said I am the Way, the Life and the Truth.

God wants the relationship with each one of us and has the power, and made the provision to give the eternal life to us!

Believe and chose to live.

For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Obligation to repent

Then Jesus began to denounce the towns where he had done so many of his miracles, because they hadn’t repented of their sins and turned to God. (Matthew 11:20 NLT)

Abusing God’s grace is unthinkable, but this is what willful rebellion (sin) does.

By meeting our needs supernaturally (miracles) God is not convincing us to worship Him. He does that to help us in our helpless situation only because of His deep love for us.

After seeing the hand of God move in our life if we don’t repent and turn to God – we just abused His grace on us.

God’s Kingdom is moving and ever expanding. His grace thru’ Christ Jesus hovers over all of us, and He is faithful to deliver all who calls upon His Name. There is only one expectation from God – repent and be baptized (meaning let go of our old willful self and put on the new man in Christ Jesus)!

The intervention of God in our lives must humble us, make us to self examine, feel awful about our sinful nature, agree to our deepest need for God’s salvation and cry out in repentance.

For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death. 2 Corinthians 7:10

The real you

Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person. (Genesis 2:7 NLT)

Man was the only creature that God created and breathed into him – which make us unique, superior, special and different from all other creations!

If God spoken words are eternal, then His breath must be eternal!

Our lives (His breath in us) can’t be killed or destroyed, it continues to live eternally. This is the spirit in us that longs to be with God eternally. This is the spirit that craves to know the One Who created it and wants to worship Him!

This spirit in us, the breath of God is real us. Rather we identify ourselves and put so much emphasis on the body we live in which was made from dust and will return to dust. The real you is the spirit in the body and not the body.

Perishable shouldn’t be dictating the imperishable, so flesh shouldn’t dictate the spirit. The real you, the imperishable is called to worship God, Who owns you!

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 NLT)

For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24 NLT)

Your right to believe

Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory. 1 Peter 1:21

Death is one thing that tells we are powerless, unpredictable, unreliable and fearful.

Except the Gospel of Jesus Christ there is nothing that gives us hope in eternal life (a real life after the death). Except the Gospel of Jesus Christ no where the resurrection from the death was recorded and promised.

Only Jesus has conquered the death, so only He can rescue us from the death and give life, life abundant!

It is imperative that every human being hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and given the opportunity to believe for the eternal life in Christ Jesus.

“Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.” Acts 16:31
