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.”

Sacrifice A Son

I heard Ravi Zacharias telling of a statement that he made at a Middle-East peace conference. And although I don’t remember the exact wording, I’ll try to give the meaning of the message. He said, “God ordered Abraham to sacrifice his son for Abraham’s sins. The Bible says that his son was Isaac. The Koran says that his son was Ishmael. Regardless of which son it was, Abraham was about to sacrifice his own son when God stopped him and provided a ram to be sacrificed. Abraham called the name of the place The-Lord-Will-Provide, in the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided. 2000 years later and 2000 years ago God did provide His Son as a sacrifice for mankind’s sins. Until mankind accepts the sacrifice of God’s Son, and his message of love, forgiveness and peace, we will continue to sacrifice our own sons in war and on the battlefields.” Are we so mean-spirited, envious and full of pride that we will continue to ignore God’s sacrifice for us, refuse His forgiveness and reconciliation, and refuse the promise of ever-lasting life? Will we refuse to love our God and love our neighbors as we love ourselves? Will we accept eternal damnation, and refuse the promise of peace, love, and eternal life?
Until we consider the happiness and welfare of others, we will never find peace and satisfaction for ourselves in this world or the next. Are we that blind in this day and age? Is sadistic abuse and slaughter of one another the goal of mankind? Or is that Satan’s goal? Joshua said, “choose you this day whom you will serve…. As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
Every person in every generation has been asked to make that same choice, because we are individuals responsible for our own lives and our own souls. We are not simply an unthinking herd to be manipulated by unscrupulous shepards. So, choose you this day whom will you serve, and choose well. As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.

Forgiveness II

Can we forgive others? Or are we the only ones worthy of being forgiven? Should we be forgiven and spared punishment for our sins, while others must suffer for their sins? Are we special, or are our sins less grievious to God? Isn’t sin, sin, and a separation from God? Satan’s goal is to cause everyone to sin in some form or another, and he has succeded. “There is none righteous, no not one.” “All have fallen short of the glory of God.” “If we say that we are without sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us, but if we confess our sins, God who is faithful and just will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
All of mankind is in the same boat. Satan has attacked each of us and caused us to separate from God because of our sins. But God offers to forgive us through His Son Jesus. He doesn’t just offer to forgive certain sins or sins against certain people. His offer is to forgive all sin. It is a free gift, open to all; just as our forgiveness should be for others, so that no one is excluded from God’s love and forgiveness – not even ourselves.

WHERE IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD?

Jesus said to his followers in Luke 17:21 “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

We can be given “The Kingdom of God” in this life, but when we pass from this life we enter into “The Kingdom of Heaven“.   He lives in us when we have a physical body.  We live in Him through our spiritual body.  The Apostle Paul wrote, “To be absent in the body is to be present in Christ.”

The creation as described in Genesis 2:7 , “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being>”

God breathed life into Adam. He breathed his spirit into Adam. Adam was born of the Spirit of God. And Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden walking with God, talking with God, relying on God for their every need and trusting in God to watch over them and protect them in every circumstance. They obeyed the will of God, until they became so proud of the perfect life they were living, that they began to think that they deserved it. They began to question the authority of God, and take authority upon themselves. They said, “God said not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge, but we think that, since everything is so perfect, this little thing of eating of a forbidden tree won’t hurt anything.” The moment that they obeyed their own will and desire, and rejected God’s will, they were separated from God. They no longer loved God unconditionally, and that bond was broken. The opposite of love is fear, and the first thing they did was to fear. Genesis 3:10, “So he (Adam) said, “I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked and I hid myself.”

The Garden of Eden is the place where man relies on God for all his needs, where he trusts God to lead him into all goodness, and, most of all, where he loves God with all his heart, mind, soul and strength. The Kingdom of God, that Jesus spoke of, is our own personal Garden of Eden, where we have a perfect loving relationship with God.

Jesus told Nicodemus in John 3:5 “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Jesus said that we must be born again, in the spirit. Adam was born in the spirit and lived in the Garden of Eden. He walked with God, he talked with God, he relied on God, he trusted in God. and he loved God unconditionally. We have been born of the world. Only by being born again in the spirit of God can we live in perfect harmony with Him. Jesus called this The Kingdom of God. I believe it is our own personal Garden of Eden until we reach the eternal Garden of God that we call Heaven.
It may be possible to be saved by simply joining a church. But the relationship God wants with us, is the relationship He had with Adam, before Adam disobeyed. In order to enter into that kind of a relationship with God, we must be born again of water and the spirit. Do you want to walk with God, or will you take your chances hanging somewhere in the back of the line? I can tell you one thing: The first time you hear God’s voice, is an experience you will never forget. And He’s waiting to hear from you now.

Calley

Dogs are God’s greatest earthly gifts to mankind. They teach us so much about love, loyalty, forgiveness, and even the ability to accept life as it comes.
When we first adopted Calley, a West Highland White Terrier, she was only eight weeks old. It wasn’t long before her personality began to emerge. When she wanted to play ball and I was sitting in my lounge chair watching TV and not paying attention to her, she would jump up into my lap and begin licking me. After I played with her then for awhile, she would get tired. She’d leave the ball on the floor and jump up on my lap again and begin licking me. I soon learned that this was her way of saying “please” and “thank you”. I never thought a dog could be so polite, yet she displayed these feelings so often that it became obvious to me.
We had a good life together. She would follow me wherever I went. When I stood talking to someone, she wanted me to bring her up to our level and wanted to be held. When I sat, she was either next to me or in my lap. When I slept, she was with me in bed – sometimes under the covers, and other times on top of the covers.
Then one day she was chasing a squirrel and tore her ACL ligament, and had to have a knee operation. She was twelve years old by then, and soon after developed diabetes. We fed her diet food, and gave her the insulin shots morning and evening. I took her for walks in the park at least once a day to get her exercise, but her health continued to fail. She finally lost most of her sight and most of her hearing. She had lost weight, couldn’t play and slept most of the time. I finally realized that I was being selfish, not wanting to lose her and wanting to keep her with me. I knew that her life now was only a burden to her without any joy.
One early morning I took her to the vet to be put to sleep. I still felt guilty, even though I knew that it was the right thing to do. I felt that I had failed her. I had failed to keep her alive, even though I had tried everything and done everything possible to keep her healthy.
The vet came in and assured me that I was doing the right thing. He gave her a shot and said that he would be back shortly, after I had said my goodbyes. I held her on the table. I kissed her and petted her. I told her how beautiful she was, how perfect she was, and how much I loved her. She lifted her head and shook it. I realized the shot was taking affect. She reached over and licked my hand and wrist 3 or 4 times, and then she lay her head down. And it was over. She had given me her final thank you and said goodbye. That was seven months ago.
Thank you. No, thank you, Calley. You gave me so much more than I could give you. You came into my life when I needed love and support more than ever before, and you loved me. I thank God that He sent you to me, and I look forward to holding you in my arms again when we’re both with God. Thank you Father, and thank you Calley. It was great. So great, I can’t seem to get over losing you. But I know that I will always remember you – feeling our love, as I feel the pain. That’s life. One can’t appreciate the good if they have never experienced the pain. You taught me that too, Calley. Yes, Calley, you’re a good girl, and daddy still loves you.

A Young Man’s Prayer To God

A young man was at the end of his rope. He felt that he loved a girl, but could never get her to notice him, and he was desperate. So desperate, that, even though he hadn’t been to church since graduating high school, he finally decided to pray to God for help.
“Dear God, I am in love with this beautiful girl, but she acts as if I don’t even exist. I try to do things for her, like opening doors for her and things, but she just ignores me. I try to talk to her, but she never has time to talk. I’ve even sent people to her to let her know how much I care for her, but I never get a response. What can I do to get her attention? How can I get her to know how much I love her?”

God answered, “Let me ask you something, son. Do you know how much I love you?“
