When God becomes the center of our lives as our greatest priority, He then becomes the only priority that we have because all things are done through Him for those that love Him.
To love our Almighty God and our Lord Jesus Christ is not something that can be done through the lips. God searches the hearts and sees all things because everything is open and naked unto Him. In pure truth He even knows our hearts intent better than we ourselves, therefore a thousand words of love and hymns to glorify Him from our lips while living in disobedience are only reprobate.
Also, when God is the center of our life, He becomes all of our life because we have no other. To pray without ceasing means to just have God on your mind and in your heart always. Once you have reached that spiritual level, you are no longer of this world.
Once you reach a point in your own life when you are under a constant self examination that drives you into more prayer, more understanding, more dependence, more leadership, more intimacy and a constant burning desire to be like Daniel, Ezekiel, Paul or any other great men of God in past; it because Jesus Christ said the words in truth that those who believed on Him would do even greater works than He Himself did. Therefore we have been assured without question because of our very deeply rooted faith that we will also be great in the eyes of God and do even greater works than our Lord Jesus Christ, and that is no hope or dream, but a firm truth that cannot be moved for them that follow Christ with their hearts.
So when you have the faith that qualifies you for that position, you are no longer of this world; therefore I personally shall do greater works than Jesus Christ because He said so, and tells no lies.
Within the world of today there are millions of ministers, pastors, laymen, books, tapes, movies, churches, and organizations all having to do with God. It is only when you have completely turned away from them all in a spiritual way regarding true education that you are no longer of this world.
It is when within your own life there are nothing but difficulties with hard times that no one seems to care about that you turn only to God, and not man, with your greatest prayers only being for the inner peace needed to deal with life no matter how the cards may be dealt because we know that all things are for God, His ways, His will and His purposes for those who have been called. Amen
We live in a world of religious confusion when it comes to God, yet His words that cannot lie say;
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 1Corinthians
So why is the world confused concerning God?
We have our Baptists, Catholics, Presbyterian, Methodist, Jehovah Witness, Lutheran, Seven Day Adventists, Mormon, Quaker, Christianity and an additional 36,600 more pieces of literature to read on various religions worldwide. So why all the confusion?
Because we have but only one truth, one religion and one God. Yet all believe what they are taught and led to believe even though God says very loud and clear right in your book called the Holy Bible too;
Come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Yet is sorrows me to tears that few will hear these direct words of warning from a heart that lie’s not. You see, I am not of this world.
And He said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.
[If you don’t understand Israel, you are but a babe that cannot digest strong meat]
For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God.
And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions:be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee;Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house:open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and lo, a roll of a book was therein; And He spread it before me; and it was written within and without:and there was written therein lamentations, and morning, and woe. Ezekiel 2:3-10
Recall these words;
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
