"And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven..."
Luke 1:76-78 (NIV)
We are fools to think that the Holy Word was written to warn humanity. No, it was written as our book - the book, the play, the movie, the actions that are to govern us - the believers. If a man doesn't know who G-d is, then how are we to judge him for not knowing the word? Likewise, if a believer knows G-d, then who are we to judge them? If we know G-d, then we know that all Glory, all Power, and all AUTHORITY goes to Him. We are not a requirement for His Kingdom, yet we have been openly invited to partake, and to rule along side Him. Again, I say, do not be trapped by the temptation of deception, for our own knowledge is the biggest deceiver. Know NAUGHT of this world, know only the Grace and Mercies of the Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach. Know this, that in Messiah there is no condemnation, there is NO pain, there is NO guilt...
"For those who suffer for My Name's Sake shall be blessed by the inheritance of my Kingdom... Blessed are you, O' My children, who are persecuted for Righteousness, and who are torn between the world, but choose to walk on the straight and narrow path. For this path goes away from the world, and enters into the Gates of the Kingdom of Heaven." (Paraphrased, book of Matthew).
Do not be deceived by your own flesh, for the flesh only senses the lies of the enemy, but the Heart of G-d only hears His own words... Do not be fooled by your own senses, for these are not the foundation in which we are to trust, but trust fully in the word of G-d; for this is the tool He has given us.
Do not be fooled by emotions, for even though they are given to us, created for us, and set in place by the G-d of our Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach, they are naught but a tool - an aid to hear what HE is going to say. Do not think that sadness is always evil... for G-d Himself has given us time to grieve... but do not grieve forever, for He has allotted us a time and a place for grieving. Do not let grief take over your life, for that is the consuming power of the enemy.
Children of G-d, do not let the grief take over... for G-d has given you a life worth living, and no lie has the authority to take it away from you. Only the Authority of the One True G-d has the power to move in you. Know it, believe it, and let it shine forth as He has created in you the brightest of the morning stars... in You, we will find our light. In You, we will never be lost...
Blessed are You, my L-rd and G-d - King of the universe! For You have separated the sacred from the profane... Blessed are You, Giver of the Torah. Amen.
