Why The Written Word?
While out of own and not in a building I find it relaxing to know that no matter where I am, I am the true church. I need not be constantly be reminded of my role as a servant. I need not think there is one day more special than the other. Every day, yes, seven days a week is a must for completing the whole Saint.
In understanding God, you must understand how service to God work. First, I remind you of the reason of the written word and why God and not even the Spirit of God is intervening in ones life.
Are you familiar with the Epistles of the bible? Now are you familiar with books and why they are written? Books are written words that record all types of information people have to pass on to others. The Epistles are also recorded words.
These words are put into books because the writers cannot be with each individual that want to know about them or what they wrote. Writers leave biographies that tell of Jesus because it is all that will remind people of who Jesus were long after he is gone. The writers also.
Jesus enlisted disciples to write his biography. To write a book about him because he would soon be gone. He could not minister to billions personally but he could through the written word.
REMEMBER, God never spoke to all the people as false church people claim today. Yet, false pastors claim such a thing is done and possible. But it's not. No way God is in all these people and all the people believing differently by saying, thinking and doing silly things. How can people calling themselves Christians be such fools.
Listen! without the word we would no nothing of him just as we would no nothing about other people in history that is dead. We read about them and feel and learn of them. In this case, we feel Jesus spirit and Gods about how they want us to conduct our lives.
Now, knowing this, I am always aware that it is I that read his words and it is I that believe in him because I believe in his written word. So no matter where I am, I live for him because I have built up a trust in the word and know that when Jesus say "I am going away and go," they are gone. Not here anymore. Not talking to me. Not helping me. It is I that must prove to God that I can live by his words until he return.
Read the scriptures below to see if you were taught or read this before from the bible or if Jesus told you this personally....
"Then he (Jesus) said to Thomas, "Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe." "Thomas said to him, "My Lord and my God!" "Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO HAVE NOT SEEN AND YET HAVE BELIEVED." "Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, WHICH ARE NOT IN THIS BOOK."
Now who do you believe? God and I or your pastor and those they twist?. Do you still think God or Jesus is on earth or keep making trips to earth? Or do you believe the written word that is written just like a history book for you to read and believe in.
So, I do not need to pretend that God has returned or Jesus. I do not need for some one to constantly tell me how to act. As a Christian I know how to read and read with understanding then grow in grace or in intellengence to understand that as a Christian I should be aware of all things wrong and silly and all things that are lies.
My life will be judged on what I did. No one is truthful when they say God is doing this or that. But God will help you if you abide in his words just as you abide in the law of the land. Stop lying and believing in those that tell lies on a Mighty God without fear.
Right now, I see people in a building that is loss with nothing to to say to God when standing before him that they did to deserved to remain alive and share in the world to come. I see building people that does nothing but play game and come up constantly with all kinds of foolishness to entertain themselves and doing nothing to defend the word of God. Why? Because the people of the United States are one and the world is one.
But help is right next to you in the written word. All you have to do is read it, believe it, repent on it, and endure the trials you will go through until the end. Then those that endured to the end will be saved at that time.
Wake up and look around you. The truth is all around you.
What have you done so great that God will want you in Heaven? Think about it!
