LIFE ETERNAL, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 9/18/19 (On my computer this morning.)
| “And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you…”|
(Romans 8:11, AMPC)
|The Same Spirit|
When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, the Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit makes His home inside you. That’s the same Spirit and the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. That resurrection power can bring back health, strength and life to your physical body, and it can bring back life to your hopes and dreams. In fact, it can bring life to any area that may seem dormant on the inside of you!
The next time you feel overwhelmed by sickness, challenges or despair, remember, the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you! You may have been burdened by an addiction, fear, worry or sickness, but there’s nothing that can stand against the power of God! Rise up and declare by faith, “He whom the Son sets free is free indeed. I am restored and healed because the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me!”
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, thank You for loving me perfectly. I want to know You more, and I want to know Your love. I receive it by faith today and ask that You show me Your ways and fill me with Your peace as I keep my heart and mind stayed on You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
There is a feeling in all I have talked to that somehow death is not the end of it, But only one man has come back from the other side to spend some time on earth to tell us about it, Christ Jesus. And we hear/read stories about near death experiences all the time where someone records that there is something on the other side of the door from life to death. Of course if I am totally wrong about this, it really will not matter. There will be a big -0- at death and no way to apologize not that it would matter… But what the 66 writings in our Bible tell us is that our soul is eternal in the image of GOD who created it. That we were given the ability to have children and that at conception a new eternal soul is created with the body that is born 9 months later. This should make some real issues with abortion. Abortion could be the murder of another Bach or Beethoven.
OK, if you are tracking with me then, why are we here, why are we alive for a few short years on planet earth? The Bible teaches that this is a life time opportunity to make an eternal choice for the light or the darkness. We are confined to this capsule of time in which to decide if we like God’s Truth or lucifer’s Fiction. We were created with a free will, also in the image of our creator, in which to learn to LOVE. Love ourselves, Love God and to Love each other. As Love can only exist with a free will. But the Creator is not going to allow the destructive results of lucifer/man’s negativity to exist throughout HIS creation in HIS dimension of eternity. So for us life is like a gym to make us stronger and headed towards HIS Kingdom or wrongly used can send our soul into a black eternal hole, Jude. The Creator has given us a great guide book to study, a maker’s manual, if you will. Unfortunately most of us are too busy to see how the Creator has designed things to work. We take all the parts out of the box and toss the directions and make all kinds of weird stuff. Like my erector set on Christmas as a kid… I never really built anything that was constructive as I was just too busy to read the directions. God’s ultimate vision is to create a LOVING family that will enjoy living with HIM. He wants to share what HE has and KNOWS as a father with HIS kids. But HE is not going to allow stress, confusion, rebellion, pride, hate, lust and the other junk of this world, due to lucifer and adam, into HIS Eternal HOME. So if you believe in Eternal Life you need to study the Maker’s Manual and start with John, Acts and Romans to find the main support system. You and every soul has been invited to have an Eternal Home with the Creator if you will read the directions and find your way. The Heavenly Father resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
