Christianity is a Relationship With GOD

More than a Religion

We refer to Christianity as “a religion” but that is only a classification of convenience because it is a relationship. When humans have a relationship (and even many other creatures) we say it is one of give and take (symbiotic). Of course the relationship with GOD is even beyond that, since we see Jesus as part of the GOD Trinity and he as King. Still, when we study the Bible we quickly discover this relationship aspect as a “Covenant” or contract with GOD. GOD makes promises and we make promises.  How we teach each other about GOD evolves to reflect changes in geopolitical and anthropological differences. The Biblical truths reflect customs, languages and  the different needs of people.  What does not change in this dynamic relationship, is the truths and standards of GOD; nor our position as created beings verses The Creator GOD.

Romans 8:37-39 ESV

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.  

 

When we confess our sin we are forgiven then we  become a child of GOD;

GOD’S Spirit Gives Peace

accepting Jesus we are the recipients of the unconditional love of GOD; even our faults cannot change that. GOD did love us even before we accepted Christ but after salvation our eternity is sealed.

1 John 1:9 ESV

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Words of Hope

Words of Hope: (ST) Paul Apostle Called by Christ

Storm Coming Danger*

  Paul writing to the Thessalonians encouraging them and clarifying details of the return of Jesus and the resurrection of the believes who “have fallen asleep” (died):  

1 Thessalonians 4:16 ESV

For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

Watchful Eyes
Watchful Eyes
Prepared
Night Vision Watch

You may have heard that Jesus will come as a thief in the night (without warning) but we know more than that because we have the Word of GOD.

1 Thessalonians 5:4 ESV

But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief.

1 Thessalonians 5:5 ESV

For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.

Imagine This: a peaceful world of plenty without evil.

Revelation 21:1-27 ESV

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” …

This was a longer segment of scripture than I usually post because it  describes something so wonderful to long for one small excerpt. We can do more than speculate since we have Faith; the verses suggest a wonderful place for believers*.

*Romans 10:9 ESV

Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

SINCE WE ARE NEW CREATIONS IN Christ it is fitting that we should have a place in this new world and heaven to come.

2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

A Dark Pessimistic Theory

A Dark Pessimistic Theory

Scorched Earth

NOTE: all images from pixabay. com unless noted otherwise.

 

 

Self imposed population control: drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, risky behavior, abortion, infanticide, genocide and assisted  suicide. Without trust in GOD all these thing can be twisted to convince people they serve humanity by allowing a better life for the survivors: more living space, more food, more things . . . . etc. Historically this reminds me of the 1930’s and 1940’s on our planet. What does GOD say?

 

1 Timothy 2:3-4 ESV

This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Apocalypse

This morning I read a blog post that explained that many streams, rivers and lakes have become unsafe to swim in (let alone drink) because lazy or cheap vacationers with campers discharge the waste from their toilets in to these waters. One comment suggested they may also let it drain as the drive along a highway. This is selfish abuse and sin. No respect for others or our planet. GOD indicated to use what we need and not abuse and waste the rest. Getting pleasure from destructive practices (killing for pleasure) is Sin.

This is more than a spiritual truth.

A person must be alive in order accept Christ and gain eternal life. To live means food, air, water, safety, good health . . . .etc. Harvest and slaughter only what is needed for food.

2 Peter 3:9 ESV

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.        

Do not scoff and be deceived: GOD will judge all.

Revelation
Judgement

2 Corinthians 5:10 ESV

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
