The Lord’s Prayer

Is the Lord’s Prayer first and foremost a prayer for spiritual power? When asked where the Kingdom of God was, Jesus replied that it is within us. So, when We pray, “Thy Kingdom come”, aren’t we really asking that God’s kingdom be established within us as Jesus said. And when we pray, “Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven,” aren’t we praying that His love, forgiveness, and healing should be manifested through us to the rest of the world?

Jesus referred to bread as the word of God many times. So, when we pray, “give us this day our daily bread”, aren’t we asking for God’s word. Jesus prayed, “Sanctify them with your truth. Your word is truth.” We are, then, asking to be sanctified through His word.

Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,” is easy to understand. Jesus made it clear many times that we could not be forgiven unless we forgave others, and in forgiving, then we are forgiven.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” seems plain enough. We are asking not to be tempted into sin, or delivered into Satan’s bondage.

Jesus said, “Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and all these things will be added unto you.” I believe The Lord’s Prayer has all to do with obtaining all our spiritual needs from God, and when we achieve that, all our physical or earthly needs will be met.

Paul wrote that, “In the latter days, men will be holding on to a form of Godliness, but denying its true power.” I believe that the bulk of Christianity has been put off by the antics of those who want, but only pretend, to have the baptism of the Holy Spirit. For that reason many in Christianity shun anything spiritual, and only hold on to the promise of salvation.

I, too, believe that some people, in their quest for the spirit, simply pretend, in hopes that it will one day be real. But, I, also, know that you cannot enter into a spiritual relationship with God, without tears – tears of happiness, tears of shame, and tears of thanksgiving. Let all of Christianity, then, kneel before the throne of God in tears of praise for our Creator and our Redeemer. Let us all receive His spiritual power and blessings as He promised. And may the world be blessed by Him through us.

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

WHAT WOULD LOVE DO?

A popular saying a few years ago was, “What would Jesus do?” It is a valid question that allows us to compare our actions to the benchmark of Jesus, but it requires interpretation. When you compare yourself to Jesus, you’re comparing yourself with a person and a personality. It’s easy to bring in judgement to justify what we already feel or how we want to act or react. The question of measuring our actions against someone or something else is easier when we remove the emotions, judgements or interpretations, and compare ourselves to an absolute value that our minds can’t manipulate and rationalize.
We should, instead, compare ourselves to an absolute, and unbending value. God is love. Love is static and eternal. It never changes for conditions or circumstances. God, or love, was the same yesterday, today and forever. We should always ask ourselves if our actions or our reactions to people is truly based on love and compassion for that person, or do we want vindication for ourselves? If we want punishment for another person, we will reap punishment for ourselves. That is sin, or harming ourselves, and harming ourselves is against God’s will for us.
Jesus said, “love your enemies, bless those that curse you, and pray for those that who despitefully use you and persecute you.” When we concentrate on that verse, we know what Jesus would do.
But if you have trouble remembering and deciphering everything Jesus said, then just ask yourself, “What would love do?”, which is a more direct way of asking what God or Jesus would do. The next question is “What are you going to do?”.

THE EMPTINESS WITHIN

We were all born with a void within us, and we spend the rest of our lives trying to fill it. As children, we run and play. We do all the things children do, yet we’re not satisfied, and many times we end up crying, wanting something, but we don’t know what. As adults we gather our network of friends around us, we work our jobs, run our errands and then work around the house – cooking cleaning, repairing or maintaining. But we still feel unfulfilled. We’re lacking something. We go to the TV to be entertained, or we go to the computer, surf and trying to find something that will fill the emptiness we feel within us. We try drugs, nicotine, caffeine or food, and still, we’re not filled. Then one day, God sends a messenger – a neighbor, a friend, someone from work, or a relative. They tell us that each one of us has been born with an empty space within us that can only be filled by God. It is a spiritual place that needs to be filled with the spirit. Jesus said, “If any one love me, they will keep my commandments, and God will love them, and He and I will come and make our abode with them.”
Some of us will ignore the advice. Some of us will listen and it will cause us to think. God loves us, and He pursues us to become His child. He knows that only He can save us from ourselves and an eternity in hell. He sends us messages – through TV programs, through examples around us, through blog sites, and by personal messenger. Listen to the message. It has the secret to filling that void within you. It has the secret to eternal love and joy. Listen to it, and be filled.

TREE OF KNOWLEDGE AND TREE OF LIFE

What really happened in the Garden of Eden? Was it simply a sin, or a horrendous mistake? Adam and Eve lived in the Garden in a spiritual relationship with God. In order to live in the spirit a person’s own will had to choose to deactivate and to live through God’s will or spirit. Adam and Eve were completely filled with the spirit of God. Not only could they see trees as we do, but they could see life – an intangible, spiritual thing. They could, also, see a fruit called knowledge hanging on a tree, and they ate from it. God had forbidden them from eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. It was not God’s will for them to eat of it. It was their will, and from that moment on they were separated from living in God’s will. Now they were living according to their will. Now they were separated from Love. The opposite of love is fear. “Perfect love casts out all fear.” After cutting themselves off from the love of God, their first emotion was fear. They covered their nakedness with leaves and hid themselves from God. From that moment of following their own will rather than God’s, they and their descendants struggled with their new-found knowledge of right and wrong to find a way back to God, to love and to life. But their effort to be good enough to reconnect to God always failed, and in some instances drove them further away from the will of God.

Then, because “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, so that whosoever believes in Him, would not perish, but have ever-lasting life”, He sent his son Jesus to lead us back to God and to the Tree of Life. Matthew Chapter 11
28 “Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.30 For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.”

Jesus was saying, “give up your will, and be yoked with me. Learn of me and you will finally find rest unto your souls“. Mankind had been trying to find their way to God’s favor, and Jesus pointed out the way. He said, “I am the WAY, the truth, and the life. No man comes unto the Father, but by me.”

All that had to be done now was for someone to pay the penalty for man’s sins. Jesus willingly sacrificed himself for our forgiveness and our return to God. He allowed himself to be nailed to a wooden cross taken from a tree. If you have been searching for love, for forgiveness and for life, come to the cross of Jesus. It is not simply two wooden beams put together as one. It is The Tree of Life. Only there will you find the answers that you have been seeking. Only there will you find a true spiritual relationship with the true and living God of all creation. Only there will you find life.

John 14:16 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

DO PETS GO TO HEAVEN

Can you imagine a Heaven devoid of any life, other than God, the Angels, and the redeemed in Christ. Can you imagine a Heaven with only pearly gates, streets of gold and various precious stones, but no trees, flowers or grass. Isn’t Heaven a celebration of life, love and the beauty of creation?

We see God’s beauty here on Earth as we take in the beauty of His creation. We see the mountains and the oceans. We see the flora and fauna of God’s creation and how they all fit together and complement one another in a beautiful dance of life.
Will we be denied this beauty in Heaven? I think not. To appreciate and praise God’s creation of beauty is an affirmation of our awe and admiration of our All-Powerful, loving God. I’m sure the beauty of God’s creation will be on display in Heaven.

What about love? And what about unconditional love? The Bible states quite openly that God is love. He is, also, light and life. The Apostle John wrote that, “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. I John 4:8 Does that, also, mean that if you love, then you know God?

Jesus said to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength, and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Unconditional love. The Bible tells us that Christ lives in us and we in Him, even as He lives in the Father and the Father in Him. By loving us and loving God, Jesus bridged the gap between God and man. By loving Jesus we are reconciled with God in Christ, and through Christ.

I don’t believe that every animal that ever lived will be in Heaven, but is it possible that by loving a pet unconditionally, having them love us unconditionally, and then us loving God unconditionally, we extend the bridge of love that results in everlasting life? Isn’t it, after all, our unconditional love that separates us from those who will not experience Heaven?

We cannot understand everything about God, nor can we know exactly what wonders await us in Heaven. We do know that nothing is impossible for God. I believe that there will be rolling meadows, trees and forests, mountains, rivers and oceans in Heaven. I know that those who love God unconditionally have eternal life through Christ. If our pets love us unconditionally and we love them unconditionally, don’t they live in us and us in them? And if we live in Christ because of our unconditional love for Him, haven’t we assured eternal life through Christ for ourselves and for our pets that dwell within us because of love?

John 14:23 “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”

Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Yes, God is love. Claim it, practice it and live it – forever.
