The Lord God is a God who needs nothing from anyone, yet He desires the devotion of His creation. He is a God who is seated on His throne in complete sovereignty, yet He calls those who will give up their lives to be heirs to His kingdom. He sees everything, from beginning to end, not one thought is hidden from His sight, yet He gives us the free will to choose good or evil.
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:13
Those who come willingly and give up what is of this world will be rewarded greatly, but those who rage against Him or even do not care will pay for their own sins. There is only one hope of salvation and that is through His son Jesus.
The forces of evil try to stand against Him but it is to no avail. Even if the whole of every nation of all time and the entire forces of darkness come against Him they would not make a dent. He is seated with no worry or fear of them, but laughs at their feebleness.
“Though all the world of demons and men unite to fight against Him, it would have less effect than a single mite beating its head against a world of granite. ” Paul Washer
He is a God who doesn’t live in our human-made structures, yet He dwells within the bodies and souls of men. He cares for each and every soul. He cares enough to cause us enough suffering that we may turn to Him for hope, peace, and forgiveness. Because it is not Him who turns away, but it is us who turn to sin.
Repent therefore and be restored to a whole relationship with the Lord. Follow and obey Jesus Christ so that you may be healed and forgiven. Your entire purpose in life is to follow, obey, worship, and seek the Lord God with every fiber of your being. To lay down your life, giving every single aspect to Him. The question is, are you willing to give up everything for Him?
For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my (Jesus) sake will find it. Matthew 16:25
Consider that there is nothing more important, nothing else of greater urgency, nothing in this world that has more eternal value than your eternal soul. No greater question than where you will spend eternity. You have a choice, good or evil, God’s ways or your own. I can tell you right now. Your way will lead to nothing good.
Every soul of man will perish if they do not turn to Jesus Christ. Because we all deserve justice and punishment for every sin we have committed. They will not be saved unless they are changed through the power of His Gospel and His Holy Spirit.
So seek Jesus and His righteousness, know Him, obey Him, give Him everything, and lose your life for the sake of Him. He is God. He is seated on the throne of Heaven. Even though He holds supreme power, He humbled Himself and came in the likeness of man. He lived, died, and rose again for your lost soul. For anyone who would be willing to lose their lives to gain eternal life through Him.
If you turn from sin and follow Him, He will give you so much more in return for your sacrifice. Like spiritual rags to riches, blessed instead of cursed, light instead of darkness, and life instead of death. I am not speaking necessarily of the things of this world but much better things joy, peace, comfort, love, and eternal life.
The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything since He Himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.
And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps find their way toward Him and find Him. Yet He is actually not far from each one of us, for “‘In Him, we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed His offspring.’ Acts 17:24-28
