God's Plan for this World and You

 

THE view of planet earth, seen from outer space, is very beautiful indeed. Confirmation of this has come from the astronauts who have gazed upon it. The earth is the fairest jewel in God's creation and it is the chosen place in the whole universe where He has promised to reveal His Kingdom in all its glory. That is why it is so beautiful.

 

The earth, of all the planets in the solar system, is the one that is perfectly suited to all forms of life and the one that orbits at exactly the right distance from the sun to provide comfortable conditions for the human race.

WHY IS BIBLE TRUTH SO IMPORTANT?

Bible Truth

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE TRUTH

Is Bible Truth important to your Faith and Salvation ie. will you be saved despite what you believe the bible teaches or does it matter what you believe?

Well the word “truth” appears 237 times in the bible, that alone says it must be important!

Therefore it must be important to understand what “truth” is.

A quick scan of the passages using this word “truth” leave us in no doubt that it is not only important, but vital to our salvation.

John 17:3

3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

1 John 5:20

20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true,even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1 Timothy 2:3-4

3For thisis good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

 

Clearly then knowing what is Bible Truth is important and vital, in addition to this we are also warned that some would depart from the “truth”…

1 Timothy 4:1

1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry,and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1 John 4:6

6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

From these passages it is very clear that we need to know the “truth” about God and His Son as it is taught to us in the Bible.  This means we must learn what this is from the Bible itself.

 

Don't let your HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL rest with someone else eg. your pastor or minister, YOU owe it to yourself and your family to be fully convinced of what it is you believe to be sure it HOLDS something REAL for you.

We have all been warned by God that there would be many false teachers and Jesus himself has told us that "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."  See Matthew 7:14

 

Sadly when Christ returns to this earth, many will only then realise that they have believed in lies Jeremiah 16:19

"19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit."

Don't let this be you or your family!

 

BIBLE TRUTH and true faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

 Truth Seeker - True Bible Teaching

The Bible is our only true source for the Truth!

 

If we claim to follow Christ we should trust in the Scriptures as confidently as Jesus and his Apostles did:

Jesus said that: The Scripture cannot be broken.  (John 10:35)

 

Paul said that: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

Peter said that: For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21)

The things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven (1 Peter 1:12)

 

True faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

If, as a result, a change of mind and heart is called for, there will be no doubt that the teaching of the Lord, and the book he trusted, must be followed and not what the churches teach.

True Bible Teaching - About You and God and Your Hope of Salvation

ARE YOU In touch with The Living God?

In touch with The Living God

You accept there is a God. Do you have faith in Him?In touch with God - God is Calling YOU!

To recognize the existence of a Superior Being is just like having a casual acquaintance. You may have ideas about God, but your views do not change your life.

Faith, on the other hand, is like a close friend. Both faith and friendship are built on understanding and trust. Both require time, effort and giving of self. Both offer a resource of strength.

Communication with God

Mutual understanding sets a friend apart from an acquaintance. Good friends express themselves honestly and openly to each other and listen to each other with sincere interest.

The key to a lasting friendship is to maintain this communication, to keep in touch.

The same kind of communication is essential in your relationship with the Creator.

How do you presently express your faith? You may pray, go to church, observe holy days and sacraments, give money or perhaps just try to be a good humanitarian.

The language that communicates most effectively to God is your day to day behavior.

Your actions, attitudes and prayers convey to Him how genuine you are in your faith and how seriously you are trying to respond to Him.

On the other side, how do you “listen” to God? You may go to hear a priest or minister, recognize God’s care and guidance in your life or believe in His presence in a less tangible way. A church building and sacred music — or the beauty of nature — may give you a feeling of closeness to God.

The surest way to receive and benefit from God’s message is to read and study it for yourself. The Bible, in a very real sense, is God’s direct line to humanity. In it He reveals His character and His purpose.

Don’t be satisfied with second hand listening.

If you put personal effort into understanding your Bible you will more readily see God’s influence in the world and your own life, recognize the outworking of His purpose in world events, and feel the impact of His truth.

Prayer

You have access to God’s word through the Bible. You also have a channel to express your thoughts to Him— prayer.

Prayer provides a way for you to ask God to guide your life, to thank Him and to express confidence in Him.

Moreover, the Almighty hears and responds to prayer if it is offered in faith. The Creator of the universe is interested and concerned about individual human beings. He wants to help those who put their trust in Him.

This doesn’t mean that God spares the true believer from suffering.

Sometimes He presents challenges, opportunities for personal growth and strengthening. But always He provides for basic needs:

“I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.” Psalm 37, verse 25

Like a loving Father, He knows better than His children what they really need in order to develop the right kind of character. His guidance might come in the form of discipline.

For example, He may allow the believer to suffer the consequences of wrong acts or attitudes.

The Bible stresses that the prayers of those who have a true and active faith receive His special attention.

“The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry.” Psalm 34, verse 15

The book of Psalms, in the middle of the Bible, contains examples of many different kinds of prayers. Each Psalm expresses a mind truly in touch with God — aware of His love, power and absolute goodness, and at the same time of the human situation.

To anyone who seeks to know God, the Psalms are a must for thoughtful reading.

Communication brings results

David, the king of Israel around 1000 BC, wrote most of the Psalms. His life is described in the Bible books of 1 and 2 Samuel, and 1 Chronicles.

The Psalms record his thoughts and prayers: his requests, thanksgiving and praise to the Almighty.

David and Goliath - Faith conquers all!You may be familiar with the account of David and Goliath.

Goliath, a giant Philistine warrior, challenged the entire Israelite army.

No one was brave enough to accept his challenge to fight except David, a youth who happened to be visiting his brothers in the army camp.

Goliath laughed when he saw the boy.

David’s brothers were angry at his “foolishness” in going against such odds.

Nevertheless, David was confident, not in his own prowess but in his God. He knew the Almighty would help him.

Of all the many seasoned soldiers, none had apparently thought to call on the LORD for help. Unarmed, young David went out and killed the giant with nothing more than a slingshot and a stone — with the help of God.

A response from the heart

David succeeded because he was in communication with the Creator through personal prayer and meditation on the Scriptures. He wrote:

“The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart.” Psalm 19, verses 7 and 8

So stirred was David, so deeply motivated by the beauty and truth he saw in God’s word, that he responded by opening his heart in prayer. David’s prayer was alive, an outpouring of what was in his heart and mind.

When he addressed the Almighty it was as though he were speaking reverently but intimately to a trusted father or superior. David’s prayers were sincere, for he know that God could look inside his heart and know all his thoughts.

“O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.” Psalm 139, verses 1 and 2

Overcoming Goliath

Life isn’t always easy. It wasn’t easy in David’s day and it isn’t easy now.

You may not have to deal with the terrifying physical threat of a Goliath, but you have your own emotional, mental or psychological “Goliaths” — personal weaknesses, fears, failings, difficult situations or relationships.

You have your own problems to face.

David simply recognized that he could not cope with life alone. He needed help and strength from the Almighty God.

The Psalms are among the world’s most beautiful and enduring literature.

They are also a moving record of David’s prayers during some of the most agonizing times of his life. David had to face the consequences of his own failings and sins — sensuality, lust for power, discouragement and fear when everyone seemed to be against him, and worst of all, violent and vengeful sons.

Like David, you can turn to God for help and not be disappointed.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Psalm 46, verse 1

Your responsibility

You can rely on God for help and support in your life.

But faith, like friendship, is two sided.

The LORD also has expectations of you. The Old Testament prophet Micah sums up His requirements:

“And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6, verse 8

Quite simply, He wants you to live your faith. In order to do this you have to develop a good understanding of the Bible message and a prayerful relationship to Him.

True worship

Faith differs from friendship in an obvious way: friends usually consider themselves equals, whereas the Almighty is far greater than any human being.

That’s where worship comes in.

Worship involves acknowledgment and admiration of another’s superiority.

What form does your worship of God take?

Do you feel there must be more to true worship than observing traditions and going to a religious service once a week? If so, you’re right.

Micah’s words in the preceding quotation refer to a way of life and an attitude of mind.

God expects the worshipper to recognize His authority and try to imitate His perfect character — every day, wherever you are.

What about ritual?

Ritual is one aspect of worship. In and of itself, however, it does not put you in touch with God. A person must do more than just go through the motions.

God expects faith and understanding.

The ritual aspect of worship described in the New Testament is simple and uncomplicated.

Essentially, there are two important rituals: baptism, and the bread and wine service.

However, what is important is not the acts themselves, but the significance behind them. Both link the believer to God through Jesus Christ.

First, the believer must be baptized into Jesus Christ.

This was the message the apostle Peter preached:

“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.” Acts 2, verse 38

Biblical baptism, by immersion in water, is an act of obedience. It identifies a believer with the death and resurrection of Jesus, washes away that person’s sins and brings him or her into the family of God.

The other prescribed ritual is the weekly bread and wine service, a constant reminder of Jesus’ death and saving work. Before his crucifixion Jesus introduced this service to his disciples, commanding them to “Do this in remembrance of me.” (see Luke 22, verses 14 to 20)

All in all, the form of Christian ritual prescribed in the Bible is far less elaborate and far more meaningful than many have made it.

It’s up to you

The Bible urges you to take stock of your relationship with God:

“Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith.” 2 Corinthians 13:5

Accepting someone else’s word leads to an unthinking faith. Building your own personal idea of God apart from the Bible amounts to mere speculation.

Faith starts with a humble, receptive attitude. It grows as you open your mind to God’s revealed word and learn more about Him and His purpose.

It matures through two-way communication.

David prayed to God for help to stay in touch with Him. Take his prayer and make it yours.

“Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me.” Psalm 25, verses 4 and 5

God's Declared Purpose with YOU and the EARTH

 

 

ARE YOU SAVED?  IF SO HOW ARE YOU SAVED?

 
 

 

Is YOUR knowledge of the BIBLE 

and YOUR belief and worship of GOD 

able to SAVE YOU?

 

Not sure? Well consider this passage from JOHN CHAPTER 17

"1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do."

The Greek word for "know" is 'genosko' and it means to have a thorough intellectual understanding of what something is all about.

Do you have this understanding of God and His Son

Jesus Christ?

The need for this full understanding of the TRUTH is further underlined by Christ's words in John 17:17Only a TRUE understanding of the Word of God can Save YOU

We are sanctified in our understanding of God's word of Truth ie. set apart as special unto God and Christ, without this we cannot be saved.  Just as Israel were not saved when they strayed from their TRUE knowledge of God.

God's special people the nation of Israel were destroyed for lack of knowledge as we read in Hosea 4:1 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

In Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee.

In Hosea 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
 

The Apostle Paul has warned us that some would not be in the Faith (ie. the true knowledge of God and Christ)...

1 Timothly 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
And again by the Apostle Peter...

2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

And in 2 Thessalonians where the Apostle Paul tells us that some would fall away from "the Truth" he says that this would be becaused they had lost their love of the Truth and had chosen rather to believe a lie.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

"10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

And so the Apostle Paul counselled us all to Work out OUR OWN SALVATION...

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.


You owe it to yourself and your family to seek the Truth

about God, His Son Jesus and His purpose with you

and this earth.
