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.”

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.

JOY AND HAPPINESS

Joy and happiness is a feeling down inside of us. Joy and happiness doesn’t originate outside of ourselves and work its way in. Joy and happiness originates within us with a relationship with God, and works itself to the outside to bring us all the blessings that God has planned for us. The blessings do not bring joy and happiness, but rather, joy and happiness bring the blessings.

Many people believe that with an accumulation of possessions, they will find fulfillent and completion. But accumulation of these things is only wealth and leaves an emptiness. The creation of joy, happiness, fulfillment and completion begins with God; and with it an appreciation of our possessions; but more importantly, an appreciation for all of God’s creation.

Never try to use possessions to create happiness. Use your God-given happiness in order to appreciate your possessions.

SHREDDING HUMANITY

I received a letter from PCRM, an advocate of responsible medicine, in which they stated that some medical schools routinely use live animals to obtain practical experience by operating on hypothetical problems. A dog had his leg broken, and then had multiple operations to remove organs until he was no longer useful and then he was euthanized. They use live pigs for the same purpose. Goats had their limbs amputated with tree trimmers in military training purposes, and monkeys were injected with toxic chemicals.
A living being cannot have a personality unless they are a person, and we all know that our four footed friends have personalities.

What are these schools doing to living, breathing, feeling creatures of God? And what are they teaching the students who participate in this gruesome experiments? It’s absolutely barbaric treating these feeling creatures who have the same drive for life as we do. But it’s no more barbaric than our school system teaching our children that there is no God, and sentencing millions of students to a life of pain, problems, turmoil and an eternity in hell.

Where is their compassion? Where is their love? And where is civilization headed?  All because liberal lap dogs choose to remove God from society and to remove children’s awareness of their own soul and spirit.   I couldn’t tell you this if it was simply an intellectual supposition, but I know that God is real. I’ve heard His voice, I’ve seen His works, and I’ve seen the undeniable evidence of His existence over and over again.

Animals are not simply physical, and humans are not simply mind and body. We have a soul and a spirit that connects us to God. Even those who promote or participate in these barbaric actions have souls and spirits. We will all stand before God one day and answer for our actions. We will all be rewarded or condemned for the way we have treated others.
Do we treat others with contempt, or do we love one another as God intended? The Bible teaches us that God is love. What are we?

Matthew 18:6  But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.
Are you teaching the truths of God, or are you teaching the lies of the evil one?

GOD DOESN’T JUDGE

God doesn’t judge us by what we are, but by what we can be. He doesn’t judge our race, size, education, intellect, or the depravity of where we have been. He judges our hearts, and invites us to come to Him and become a new person – the person He created us to be.

He loves us, and pursues us to become His child. He will follow us to the gates of hell, hoping that we will return to Him. And all the while He loves us. Where is your heart? Is it with the creator of love and life? Is it pointed in the direction of eternal life? God will never condemn us. That is our choice.

If you try to navigate the seas of this world without God as your navigator, you’re heading into the perfect storm.
Don’t be afraid to ask God, your navigator, for help. We all need direction. We all need Him.

CHEROKEE RITE OF PASSAGE

Have you ever heard of the Cherokee Indian youth’s rite of Passage?  It is meant to test the young man’s courage and to reveal a deeper truth of life.  In this ritual a father takes his son into the forest, sits him on a tree stump, blindfolds him and leaves him alone.
The young man is required to sit on a tree stump the whole night and cannot remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it. He cannot cry out for help to anyone.  Once he survives the night, he is a MAN.  After his experience he cannot tell the other boys in his tribe of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his own.

The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of strange sounds around him. Wild beasts must surely be all around, he believes.   Perhaps, even some evil person may want to do him harm. The wind blows the leaves, the grass and the earth it seems, and  even shook his stump that he was sitting on, but he sits stoically, never removing the blindfold. This is the only way that he could become a man!
Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold.

It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him.
He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm.

We, too, are never alone.
Even when we don’t know it, God is watching over us, Sitting on the stump beside us.
When trouble comes, all we have to do is reach out to Him.

Moral of the story:
Just because you can’t see God,
Doesn’t mean He is not there.
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
