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.”

If you seek truth, you’ll find God

If a person never seeks to prove or disprove the existence of God, they will never know for sure. They can only posture and proclaim an empty and unfounded belief. If one, however, diligently seeks to prove or disprove the existence of God, and perseveres until it is proven, then they will find God.

While writing my book,”God, reward and punishment:  Are they real?”, I proved the existence of God and His Son by one story of the Bible using the Harvest Principle against it. When I finally proved intellectually and logically that God existed, it was then that I fully realized how unconditionally God loves me, and how much He had suffered in providing forgiveness and salvation for me. Learning of His love for me and for all of mankind caused me to finally love Him as I should have all along.

I could now pray to Him, knowing that He was listening. I gave my life and will to Him, knowing that He would protect and nurture me. And then He taught me to hear His voice. The first time I heard Him, I was so shocked by what He said, proving it was His voice, that the fact that He spoke to me seemed irrelevant.

Yes, God still speaks to His Children. Jesus didn’t just die on the cross to forgive our sins. He, also, took our illnesses and diseases and gave us healing. He sent the Holy Spirit to give us spiritual gifts:

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.” (1 Corinthians 12:7-11)

No, God does not just forgive us. He still speaks to us, He gives us knowledge and wisdom, healing, miracles, and prophecy etc. Probably no one receives all of the gifts, but each one receives at least one of them. We need not pretend to have a certain gift. If it is from God, we will know it. And, if we pray and listen, He’ll still speak to us.

We can prove intellectually and logically the existence of God. But, the real and absolute truth comes when He deals with us on a spiritual basis, wherein our true and eternal essence resides; and where He cleanses and empowers us.

Knock and the door shall be opened to you. Seek and ye shall find. Ask and it shall be given to you.”

“God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”

A pretend message from Satan

While we continue to stamp out any vestige of Christianity in the world, it is important to remember our values. Remember our motto, “If it feels good do it.” Remember, also, that we no longer consider ourselves as mind, body and spirit. We have been freed from intellect, reasoning, or spiritual guidance. We are simply physical just like our fellow animals of the world; and we are allowed to breed with whomever and whenever we please. And just like the animals, we don’t need families. Children will raise themselves.

Don’t let anyone tell you that there is a God Creator. I, Satan, am the only spiritual entity in the universe, and I love to have fun.

Darwin freed us from the idea of a Creator. Even though scientists teach that for creation to be created by accident it would be a one in unimaginable trillions of chances, and therefore, impossible. Still there is that one chance, and we can consider ourselves unimaginably lucky. And then they say that accidental creation would be like blowing up a printing factory and finding that a whole library of books had been created in the explosion. Who said that it couldn’t happen? And who reads books anyway?

Whatever you do, don’t forget to tear down and destroy, whether it’s other people, groups, institutions, or governments. This is how progress is made.

And please don’t believe those who say that they’ve had a near-death experience and have gone to hell and returned. There’s no such thing as hell. And, anyway, I would have seen them if they had been here. Trust me.
In closing, remember that greed and gluttony are virtues, so I encourage you to eat, drink, and be merry, and tomorrow you can do it all over again.

In the meantime, have fun, and don’t forget our appointment. Or don’t bother to remember. I’ll remind you when it’s time.
Your close friend, Satan

Why would anyone separate themselves from Jesus?

In Mark 5:1-9 the Bible tells us of Jesus coming to the country of the Gadarenes where a demon possessed man lived among the tombs. He was completely possessed, chains couldn’t hold him, and he lived there naked among the tombs. Verse 6 says “When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped him.” Even in complete control by demons, they could not stop the man from worshiping Jesus.
Romans 8:37 “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” God’s word tells us that nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.  Nothing or no one can do that except you.
Some will say, “If I worship Jesus, my friends will disown me.” Or they say “my family will disown me”. Or they say,” people would kill me if I worshiped Jesus.”
If Satan himself cannot stop you from worshiping Jesus. Or if there is no power in heaven and earth that can separate you from the love of God through Christ Jesus, why would you separate yourself from him? Why would you choose death when life and life eternal is within your grasp? Why would you choose hell over heaven? Why would you do that to yourself?  It’s your eternal future. Your friends, family or others do not suffer for you in hell. It’s your soul and your eternal bliss or suffering that is in question. It is your choice, and no one else.
Joshua said, “choose you this day whom you will serve. As for me and my family we will worship the Lord.” Choose you this day whom you will serve. Choose the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, the creator of all things, and the giver of life, the healer, and the redeemer.  Choose life.

Immorality or God?

If you have no God, you have no morality. If you have no morality, then anything justifies the ends. You can lie, cheat, steal and even kill in order to reach your questionable goal. You can create fake news and promote it until it becomes real to the masses and convict your enemy for a crime that never happened. You can adopt barbaric measures as your own, such as holding up the fake decapitated head of your enemy. You can wear masks and hoods and attack people, even with bicycle chains and locks. You can hold your followers in contempt because they will accept a glass of poison if it has a cherry on top. You can riot and demonstrate to prevent the other side from being heard, because truth is you worst enemy. You can even shoot complete strangers and attempt to kill them or destroy their lives, simply to make a point. You can do all this simply because you are Godless and your future is hopeless.
The truth is: Our president wasn’t elected because we asked Russia for help. Our president was elected because millions of Christians got on their knees before the Almighty God and He gave us a miracle. If we want what is right for our needs, then we need only to ask God. He wants only the best for us. It is evil that wants to harm us.

Bless and bless again

The book, “God, reward and punishment:  Are they real?,” reveals that The Harvest Principle (Golden Rule) says that we should do to others what we want done to us. Yes, whatever we want done to ourselves, we need only to do to another, and it will be done to us.

It cannot be emphasized enough just how important it is for us to do only to others what we want done to ourselves. Any time we judge or condemn another, it won’t be long before we are judged and condemned. Any time we want misfortune or suffering for another, we will soon experience misfortune or suffering in our own lives. The person that we desire misfortune or suffering for will not be punished for our sin against them. They must, naturally, face God with their sin against us, but they will not be punished for what we feel for them. Only we will receive that punishment.

Jesus said, “love your enemies, bless those that curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.” This is a great teaching. Under no circumstances or justification must you want misfortune or suffering for others – whoever they are or whatever they’ve done.

Jesus said that this law was the sum of the law and the teachings of the prophets. In other words, it is the foundation of all Biblical teaching and of all earthly moral teaching.

That explains the destructive side of this law, but the great news is that whenever we bless another, we will be blessed. Whenever we lift up or encourage others, we will be lifted up and encouraged. Whenever we feel joy for another’s success, accomplishments or joy, we will soon feel our own success, sense of accomplishment and joy. The door is wide open to how much joy, fulfillment and completion we can feel in our own lives. It all depends upon how we view and treat others.

The Bible says, “Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He might exalt you in due time.” Each of us must drop our defenses and humble ourselves or our own interests for the good of others, and especially humble ourselves, praise and exalt God. Perhaps then, we as individuals and we as a nation will be raised up by the Almighty Hand of God. We don’t have far to go to be the great nation that we’ve been in the past. We only have to go to our knees before the God that loves us and wants only the best for us.
Don’t hate the world and its inhabitants. Love them, just as God loves them.

Death Of A Little Cat

Today, our neighbor from two doors down, came to our back door in tears. My wife went out and talked to her. She told my wife that her little cat, Mia, had been run over by a car and was dead. My wife went back with our neighbor to her house, both in tears. Mia was a stray cat that our neighbor had adopted, along with other cats. But Mia was different. She was a black cat, not more than eight or nine pounds. She had a bad front paw. No one knew how it had happened. But she had to walk on the knuckles of that paw and limped badly. Mia was a gentle soul, and she had two litters of kittens before our neighbor had her spayed. She was a good mother and took good care of her babies. With the other cats around at the neighbors, she sometimes didn’t get enough to eat in order to feed her babies. So while she was nursing her kittens, she would make a nightly trip to our back fence, and my wife would fix her a bowl of soft cat food. When she was finished, she went back to her babies. I never petted her or got too close to her, since she was my wife’s friend, and she didn’t really trust me. Yet, today I cried for her. Not just for her, but because the realization of the finality of death came over me again. Many people are so in love with themselves that they have no time to consider where they came from or where they will end. Society has traded tenderness for carnality, a smile for boisterous laughter and kindness for selfishness.
A cat never has to choose to accept their creator or to reject Him. Their connection with their creator is called instinct and they live their lives in this connection. We humans are different. We have a mind that is intelligent enough to consider our creator and consider His ways for our lives. Yet, so many only use their intelligence to obtain more for themselves, and hide from the inevitable. I believe Mia is in heaven, without a limp and running and playing like she was never able to do here on earth. My tears today was not only because Mia died and we would never see her again. My tears were, also, for those who will never know the joy and happiness that Mia now knows, because they have chosen to reject their creator. They need to drop their manufactured facade and face the realities of life. We humans are required to choose whom we will serve and how we will live in preparation for our final reward.

Choice

Adam and Eve made a choice. They chose to eat of the Tree of Knowledge. But with knowledge comes choices. Decisions must be made. Knowledge gives us the information we need to make a choice, but there are right choices and wrong choices. The more complex our society becomes, the more complex our choices become. Adam and Eve were alone on the earth, and their choices were simple. They were one step away from the Garden of Eden where they had no need to make choices. God supplied their needs and only asked for their obedience and fellowship with Him.
But they chose to make their own decision, and they were given the responsibility of supplying their own needs. Still, their choices were few and life was simple: choose how to prepare the soil, choose which seeds to plant, choose how to plant them, and choose how to protect and nurture the plants to maturity. Life was simple and still close to their life in the garden.
Then came children, and the choices became more complicated. Of the first two to be born of Adam and Eve, Cain chose to kill Abel. People began to multiply, and the complications of choices were compounded. Today we live in a world where other people and groups of people want to make our choices for us. They want to supplant the authority of God and become the serpent in the garden. We, then, must choose. Do we follow Satan the serpent or do we follow God? The choices for us are the same today as it was for Adam and Eve in the garden. How will we now choose, knowing the consequences of our choice is between an eternity in Heaven or Hell? It’s our choice.

Finding God

I live in America. I can read any Holy book without fear for my life. I can even become a member of any religion without fear for my life. But, I became a Christian at the age of fourteen without having read of other religions and not even knowing if God or His Son was real. It simply seemed right. It wasn’t until years later, while writing my book,”God, reward and punishment: Are they real?”, that I was led in my studies to discover proof that God was real, and that He actually did sacrifice His Son, Jesus, for the forgiveness of my sins and for mankind’s sins. I have seen the proof in the Bible, I have heard His voice, and I have been forever changed.

I have studied the other religions who claim to know God. But they don’t know the God that I know. My God is the God of love; and His greatest commandments to me is to love Him and to love my fellow man as He loves me. I am not expected to have super-human will power or to accomplish great works. But with the love of God in my heart I can do no other person harm, and my works are seen in my blessings to others. He lives in me, and I in Him. Therefore, the works that I begin are finished through love, through Him who is the God of love. Yes, I may do great things, “yet not I, but Him who is in me”.

As I face a world that grows increasingly more dangerous to those who know the true God, I know that I will not be moved and I will not compromise justice for any price. I know that I must die before I meet my God face to face. How I die is not as important, as how I live.

This peace of mind can belong to anyone. The Holy Bible tells us that “He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.” I encourage you to seek Him, and to collect your reward. I promise you, that you will be eternally grateful that you did.

Whose Rules For Life Do We Follow?

Have you ever watched the way people act and try to figure out their motives or incentives for relating to other people the way that they do? The loudest person wants to be heard above everyone else, and, also, wants to be above everyone else. We’re all guilty of being interested in self-preservation, but must we continually try to sell ourselves and to control others for our own sense of security? If we watch people trying to manipulate people and promote themselves over others, they begin to look pathetic, begging or demanding that others give them respect and a higher spot in the pecking order. I have watched others, who are humble and secure enough in themselves to actually be kind and considerate to others – who are genuinely interested in the other persons well-being.
The secret in these diametrically opposed position has to be found in where the person places their trust. The self-centered “ME” person relies upon themselves for security and safety. They believe life is simply composed of how they use their physical senses. The person who always sees the other person as being as important as themselves, know that they are loved, that they don’t have to manipulate anyone in order to secure a bright future for themselves, and that they don’t have to fight the world in order to be a winner. These people have found true happiness through knowing God. They have found His love, His protection, and His plan for them, to provide a prosperous and successful life. By accepting the gift of forgiveness from Jesus, they have found the love to forgive others. They hold no grudges or bitterness and their lives are free of fear and worry. They no longer fear for themselve, but have found the love to care about others. They don’t hold others down, they lift them up. They don’t promote themselves, they encourage others.
We have nothing but sympathy for those who are fearful and insecure. But we admire and are inspired by those who are secure in their God. Do we want to spend our lives fighting the unwinnable fight, or do we want to know that there is no fight, because our future is secure in God. We play by Satan’s rules when we fight our own fight. We play by God’s rules when we give ourselves to others. Whose team are you on?

Sex Outside Of Marriage

We hear rationalizations such as, “But we love each other,” or “But we’re going to be married, and a Marriage Certificate is just a piece of paper.” But is it just a piece of paper?If it’s just a piece of paper, then we may, also, hear rationalizations after marriage such as, “I don’t love the other person,” or “my spouse doesn’t give me what I want, so I do this just to keep the family together”, or “it’s just a fling to blow off steam. My marriage is strong.”
But God didn’t create a piece of paper. He created a union between man and woman to reflect Himself: the strength of man, the tenderness of woman, and the creation of life within the union.
The Bible says, “God created man, male and female He created them and told them to go forth and multiply.” He created sex and marriage as a reflection of His divine nature, and not as a toy to be shared with anyone except the person that we have sworn to love and serve, until death do we part. Just a piece of paper? Or a covenant with God? Are we alley cats, or are we the reflection of God, determined to have healthy and happy children within our marriage only? Not only do we protect the children, but we protect ourselves, just as He meant it to be.
