If you want to see the hand of God, you must look at the patterns you see in life. You must start with the commands of God. You must start with the origin of man. According to the Bible, man sinned against God and he cursed man with death. His life on earth would be temporary. The very first pattern. Sin=’s death.
We fast forward and we find a pattern for a nation of people. When a nation of people sin against God it equals death. When a nation repents we find a pattern of God’s forgiveness and a delay in death. The people of the nation experience peace and joy. A pattern that is also seen on the individual level.
We find a pattern of disease, sickness, & death when man disobeys the laws of God. For example, prayer was removed from schools in the US and every year from that time mass shootings, death occurred. Before prayer was removed we did not see the pattern of death. Sin=’s death. We find the same pattern in death from sexually transmitted diseases. Those who practice sexual sin do so with the cost of sickness, disease, & early death. A pattern that is clearly seen. Those who commit adultery, obesity, all have high disease, sickness, & early death rates and they all happened to be sins. From the very beginning until the present the pattern of sin equals sickness, disease, and early death is clearly seen in our data and if we are honest, we have seen the harm of rape, drug & alcohol abuse, which are sins that cause sickness, disease, & early death.
God is revealing himself with this pattern. There is another pattern of forgiveness that God gives that allows one to escape diseases & early death. Its the pattern you see in followers of Jesus Christ. No one can escape the first death. God cannot go back on His Word to Adam that if he ate of the tree of the knowledge of good & evil that He would die. The escape is in the second death for people who reject Jesus and live according to the rule of sin. These individuals will die a second death. Sin can only produce death, but forgiveness from God allows one to escape. Look at the patterns in your life and in others. See the hand of God in it. Sin=’s early death.
Many will say on the day of the Lord that they served him. That their lifestyle for all practical purposes lined up with Scripture and that they have a relationship with Jesus and God will say to them I never knew you. You served yourself and did what felt good to you and I allowed it, but I told you within my Word only those who pick up there cross daily and follow me, will find me.
To find out whether or not the God written within the pages of Scripture is your God, you must see where you stray from its text. The Bible records that out of a 1000 women not one can be found righteous, but out of a thousand men there is one. Its easy to see when you look at the survivors of Sodom and Gommorah, Jericho, or Pompeii, out of thousands so few were saved and the first two are given for the believers example on how to live on this earth.
Today, more than ever, women are ruled by their appearance. Particularly, Christian black women will find value in the name of a designer purse and will spend countless hours in work to obtain it and spend little time praying in the name of Jesus. According to statistical data black women spend thousands on their hair, but what does Paul say? Don’t adorn yourself with costly material. I know. You rather do it your way. Just remember. It is your way that will grant you a ticket to hell.
Today, more than ever, men are ruled by the female vagina and do not heed the several warnings of Solomon concerning them. He said, you will mourn when a dart strikes through your liver. The liver functions to detoxify the blood and without its proper function AIDS will destroy you. Disease will cling to your flesh and you will die and enter hell as God promised to the one who disobeys him.
You can attend church faithful, pray for others, and read your Bible, but if you forget what type of person you actually are you will die and God’s angels will escort you to hell. God does not want any of his children to be too invested in this world. We are aliens among evil people who are planning to rid the world of us at this very moment that I am writing this blog.
What does a Jesus pop-out look like? What does it mean? Do you pop Jesus out whenever you need him and pop him back when you are finished. Today, we see many people asking for prayer in their nearest storm, but soon as the coast is clear, they resume with swearing, getting drunk and doing things that they ought not to. They have no desire or hunger for the things of God. In a nutshell, they are displaying the fruits of the flesh and not the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5).
This is a stench in His nose because they are just paying lip service but their lives are consistently contrary to Gods word. So the question is, is Jesus your whole life or do you pop Jesus out like a lucky charm? Is your ‘commitment’ to Christ limited to just an ackowledgemnt that he exists and that he supplies for you or have you totally surrendered your life to him and desire what he desires and hates what he hates which is sin.
I know of Scarlett Johansson, but I bet if you asked her if she knew me, the answer would be no. In the same way, many people know and even acknowledge Jesus, believe that he died on the cross and rose on the third day but MANY of those very same people will hear Jesus say ‘ I never knew you’ when they stand before him to give an account (Matthew 7:23) because they continued to work iniquity.
So how do you know that you will not be amongst that number. The bible makes it clear. Examine yourself to see if you are in the faith.
