In Matthew 4:8-10 Satan showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him (Jesus), All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.Then Jesus said to him, Away with you, satan! For it is written, You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.
Today Christians and the world are being tempted and lured with kingdoms of the world and their glory with the intention of defeating or making Christians to be unfruitful or ineffective or be diverted from the love of Jesus.
We need to submit ourselves to God and resist the devil and his temptations.
I thought after 43 years of reading the Bible, that there is no more to go but to retire but God has greater plans. I found there is more room to grow. God is so great that the whole world can not contain Him.
Experience for yourself and see that the Lord God is good. Everything in this world will pass away but God's words will not pass away.
See for yourself. If you are just starting start slow or little. Go at your own pace or as God leads you.
Eleven years in the social media gave me experiences i did not dreamed before. I was able to get in touch with childhood friends, relatives, classmates, co workers etc. Because of its help reunions or get togethers can easily be arranged.
But how far can it go ? If there is no eternal life, social media will soon fade or it will just be a dream.
Is there eternal life ? In 1976 , I got hold of a Holy Bible, checked it out, examined it, questioned it and never let go. I believe the Holy Bible is the best source of information on eternal life.
Is our rejoicing short lived ? I noticed mine was. So I asked the Lord why ? I noticed my rejoicing were based on my perception that things must be favorable to me. Apostle Paul who wrote " Rejoice always" experienced unfavorable circumstances like ship wrecked, stoning, beatings etc. so where did he based his rejoicing ?
I believe he based his rejoicing on the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. The cross shows that Jesus fulfilled His mission to save us and will fulfill His other promises to us.
Does God take away our worries ? God told us not to worry, so if we worry that is what we choose to do. Trusting God does not mean for us to do nothing but to do the will of God. What then is the will of God ? We can know the will of God by fervent and continuous prayer or praying without ceasing.
Let us always seek the Lord or the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
I have trouble sorting out my memorabilia of books , tools , parts,notes, pens, keys, etc that is when I thought of the title of this blog.
I am guessing every living person here in planet earth is accumulating something. But have we ever asked ourselves where we are going with what we are accumulating ?
If this question puzzles you, let me suggest to you this , will what I am accumulating now prepare me for eternity ?
Perhaps that is even harder. Let me share where i am going. By faith i am hoping to go where the Holy Bible promises. Eternity with God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. The word of God as contained in the Holy Bible have something exciting for us. Have you read or heard them ?
