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.”

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?“

THE FUTURE IN FORGIVENESS

“Whatever you would have done to yourself, do to another.“
The words of Jesus.

When we condemn another for harm that they have done to us, we carry that pain and anger into the present, where we plan future pain and retribution for the person that harmed us. But in desiring retribution for another, we receive it for ourselves, and we are doubly harmed – once by them, and over and over again by our our own desires for another. When we forgive the person that has harmed us, we erase the past, and the past is no more. There is no place in the present for a past that does not exist, and the future then stands before us unencumbered of pain and retribution. And free to receive the full blessings of God, through joy and thanksgiving throughout all of eternity.

I will forgive them of their sins, and remember them no more.“  The words of Jehovah God the Father.

Forgive and open up a beautiful future and a loving eternity.
Andy

Present Weakness and Resurrection Life

Think Christianity is down and out?  Think again.  The truth is in the word

2 Corinthians 4:1-15New International Version (NIV)

2 Corinthians 4:1-15 New International Version (NIV)

Present Weakness and Resurrection Life

4 Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

13 It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”[b] Since we have that same spirit of[c] faith, we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
