Know thy God!
We live here on earth, living in uncertainty.
But that was before.
We are now Christians that hold on to the Truth and follow the complete commandments of Jesus Christ. People wonder how our group does not worry that much and even have the time to laugh to our heart’s content, even when mocked by our detractors.
What is the secret behind the seemingly unexplainable jolt of energy coming out from us? One thing of the many reasons, we left the life of hypocrisy behind. Another thing is that we are certain to the everlasting life God, He that cannot lie, promised.
I belong in this community of believers though I am a homosexual.
I am a homosexual because I cannot see myself having an intimate relationship with a woman but only to a man. This Eros kind of love sometimes slips from its shelves.
Without God, how can I avoid the emptiness that I feel within? How can I ignore the sense of longing, desire, and “Eros” that I feel toward the same sex. Some thought that by following them can extinguish the fire within, that I once thought too, or even now, that Satan keeps on putting on my head! But I understand, with the help of the Holy Spirit, knowing what I must do, I know that I cannot fulfill that desire but rather fight it.
I learn to put my trust in God! He is the source of a genuine laughter, that despite of unexplainable things that is happening in my life, may it be good or bad, His son, Jesus Christ becomes my helper in carrying the yoke.
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
God is running my life now, helping me to understand and to recognize my limitations as a homosexual, as a human, as a member of a family, as citizen of a country, as a friend, more importantly as a servant of God and my brethren. And since I have recognized my limitations, I am now able to optimize the things that I have and what I have learned. More importantly, accept and appreciate myself the way I am.
Now that I found God, I appreciated more what He has been saying all along:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest,” Matthew 11:28.
A song of ascents.
1 When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion,
we were like men who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them.”
3 The LORD has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow in tears
will reap with songs of joy.
6 He who goes out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him.
Can the unbelievers, atheists specifically, laugh with all their heart’s content? Especially when their anxieties start to bother them.
Yes, laughter is still the best medicine, a genuine laughter, that is! A medicine they cannot find in penicillin, drugs, sex, atheists and the like. They can only attain such joy under God’s refuge.
6 Like the crackling of thorns under the pot,
so is the laughter of fools.
This too is meaningless.
Atheists seem to talk intelligently but composed merely of assumptions about God.
They have been describing God the wrong way, the reason why their conclusions result to anguish, to the point of disbelief in God’s existence, and labeling Him names too! Blatantly, they are just applying what they learned from their father, the devil.
2 He whose walk is upright fears the LORD,
but he whose ways are devious despises him.
Is God omnipotent and omniscient or just omnipotent? Can he lie? Can he do everything? Maybe the god that those persons you heard has all these “fable-like-capabilities”. Some implies that God has a prerogative to lie! Yes, these beliefs exist in the minds of the unbelievers and the anti-christ!
Which of the adjectives above are true then, based on the bible?
I learned one thing, if you want to know God, read the bible.
Because the bible was written by man under the divine guidance of God. That is the reason why it contains all the logical, rational and scientific answers about God that man needs in order to live long. Those things of God, even some of those we have no knowledge of are explained in the bible, even the reason why sinners are not punished yet. I read that God is Almighty and He cannot lie.
Please do not be ungrateful of God’s patience because He’s patience is incomparable to that of ours. It is indescribable!
What do Atheists or unbelievers have in common? They want to rationalize about what is and what not without having to mention or include God and the things about Him.
Psalm 53:1; 14:
1 The fool says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
there is no one who does good.
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
I disregarded the definition about God made by so many scholars and the like, because should they have been right, they will rebuke people calling them Pope, Pastor, the God, Jesus Christ, angels, and the like. Catholic Priests will not allow catholic children sleeping a foot away outside the Catholic Churches’ walls, an example can be observed in Quiapo, Manila in the Philippines. If they known the True God or even have a glimpse of Him in the Holy Scriptures (Bible), that One that gave the Word freely, they will not allow corrupt officials to donate, nor they will ask nor accept monetary donations from non believers, even payments for baptism, confirmation, marriage, nor even payment for prayers for the soul of the dead.
Ezekiel 34:2-5 “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them. And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.”
An angel messenger will not dare to say that God can lie if He wills to, but say the truth, foretell the future as told by Jesus Christ, without adding, subtracting a word even a dot or a comma. Neither will they edit something out of what a wise man said just to malign him and bring the souls of the listeners with them to destruction. No one will teach the Jesus Christ of the Bible as being a mere human, unless he be the Anti Christ, if not, Satan’s followers!
If we are talking of One God then there is no confusion inside the church but organized thoughts, understanding, one faith, one hope and the like.
An amputee Christian will not pray to God to grow him another leg! A True Christian will ardently pray that God guides his path even if his leg gone, he will not fall in one way or another in terms of following the commandments, up to the coming back of Jesus Christ and be rewarded of the promise, an incorruptible body.
Let us not rebut here the way we do it in college just to prove a point. In college, we do not care whether we lie making sure that we have a basis of a lie and can present it as the truth; after all, it is just a lie used in just a game of debate.
Let us debate the Christian way, always taking into consideration the soul of those who are listening/reading.
I John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Without this attitude of concern, no wonder why atheists speak foolishly, they have nothing to lose. Their beliefs and ideology are strongholds that is easily pulled by the mighty through God!
II Corinthians 10:2-4
King James Version
2 But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; )
