He Who Inhabits The Universe
Gladly the answer is "YES", and He is God Almighty, the Great "I Am, the one who inhabits the Universe, our Creator.
".... And His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6)
I believe that the greatest "honor" God bestows on mankind is the opportunity to come into His Presence with a clean heart and clear conscience, to come before the Throne of Grace and Mercy, witnessing the purest of Love and Fellowship;
God and man once again reconciled.
True Fellowship with God depends solely on your relationship with Jesus Christ, nothing more, nothing less. Period!!!
Jesus said "I am The Way,The Truth, and The Life; NO MAN cometh unto the father, but by Me. (John 14: 6)
Your relationship with Christ is the "gate", or the door", of the Throne Room of Almighty God. Only those who have completely given their lives and hearts to Christ will the Father recognized as a child of God. "But as many as received Him, to them gave he power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on His Name.( John 1:12)
Then said Jesus unto them again, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, I Am the door of the sheep".
"I am the door; by me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out , and find pasture". (John 10: 7&9)
Amazing to think that Almighty God, responsible for the Creation of all Life, every Star, every Planet, every Galaxy and every Solar System to the ends of the Universe Loves us enough to send His Son to die for our sins, so that we would have the opportunity receive the Purest of His Love which is in Christ Jesus, and the Fellowship with Himself through Him; "If We Choose".
Choose you this day whom you will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (paraphrased from Joshua 24: 14&15)
Remember, God will always gives us a "Choice", because He wants us to love Him on purpose.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:15&16)
But sadly many people, including Christians, will never know True fellowship with God with a religious relationship with Jesus Christ. A Religious Relationship with Christ is like a woman continually going through all the motions preparing to deliver a child when she isn't even pregnant.
I've often wondered that if we had the same type of religious relationship with our spouse as we have with the Savior of the world, how long would you think your marriage would last? Or what type of fellowship could we possibly have? Just a thought
True Fellowship With God
Greetings In Christ,
I would like believe that most people still long for peace in the world.
I also like to believe that somewhere deep in their hearts they wish their life could be different, maybe the way it use to be; simple, happy, good friends, full of hope. That seems to be only in times passed.
Today life seems to be much to complicated, "what can I say, what can I do", am I being politically correct. Stress level is peaked through the roof, worrying about offended people by the slightest word or look, always on guard and ready to defend yourself. And that is heartbreakingly sad.
Folks, that's NO WAY to live. And that's no way to have to raise our children. But tragically that's what we're forced to do to protect our family and ourselves. Our hearts have waxed cold toward the human race, even toward God our Creator.
Society has drifted from the "Love Thy Neighbor" that was once the standard we lived by.
I understand we have no control as to what happen in the world and in society; but we do have a choices as to how we respond.
So what are you saying Preacher?
What I'm saying is that there is a friend, a man of Honor and Peace, yet a man of Justice, who will never leave you nor forsake you no matter what you've done. A friend that will stick closer to you then a brother.
He is the friend who knew you before you were born. And knows the smallest details of your life, every thought, every spoken and unspoken word, and every secret that would be to embarrassing to mention, (and we all have one) and this friend would love you and accept you, never judging you by your faults.
