You can be Fishers of Mankind.
Everyone has questions. I am no exception. You know, why didn't I get that raise? Why didn't I take that pretty girl or guy out on a date? Will I have the chance to make my way out of this prison like place I am in. You get the idea. My question is: where do I find the answers, and how do I know the truth?
Do you like me know that you have this nagging, this gnawing, this uneasiness deep inside. We know there has to be an answer, but what is the real question. Maybe it goes something like this; Do I have a soul, a spirit, and a body, one or the other or two or all?. If the answer is yes to all, then how do they work in me or how do they work together? And what about others? Are there others like me? What happens when I die? I hear a lot of conversation but no acceptable answers. Evolution? Creation? Both? Does anyone know? I personally want something I can stand on.
Well then here you are. I used to lie my way into and out of situations every day. When others did things I knew was wrong I rarely stopped them or did any thing to keep them from hurting themselves or someone else. I would more often look the other way. But there is something about nearly dieing to cause your spirit to cause your soul to cause your body to start wanting freedom from this thing that had a hold on you.
I was baptized at a young age (twelve I think). However, life is full of changes, and as things change problems arise. Problems need answers and I am very smart I can figure everything out. I don't need anyone to answer my questions. Sounds good, but my thinking took me down a falling road where little by little all I have left myself is my health and it wasn't great or even good. So much for being smart and gifted.
Only God knows the truth, the why I can't get it right every time. I started off in the right direction until I couldn't stand up to temptation. The truth stands on it's own every time in every way and you and I do not have to remember or become the lie. The truth will lead you in the correct way as each step you take. As you breath the truth is, you and I do not know where the next breath is coming from except by assumption that it has always been and it will always be.
If not created, then will it evolve into not being there one day just after we have ran up the trail a mile or so? Do we tend to trust the wrong things? We have been told by some human beings that the 'THEORY IS'. If it is a theory what stops any other human from coming up with a similar 'THEORY'? It is good and right to have respect for others as you and I need to be respected. But putting my 'trust...' in a theory that can't be proven to it's fullest, is foolishness. On the other hand, God has written a book. It took over 2000 years to be written and was written by several authors. Also God's book brings about a knowledge of events that has been proven as factual occurrences in the history of this world. Much of it's information is passed through from generations.
Some say that it changes each time it is told. The truth that is written in God's book however is the truth that is written by God by inspiration through the hands of mankind just as this that you are presently reading. I therefore from personal experience have a knowledge that I have written many things that were given to me from a source that is unseeable, yet He might just as well been standing over my shoulder real and present. And I'm not alone in having this presence about me.
How do we know that God is real? How do we know that Jesus is real? How do we know that the Holy Ghost is real? In a world where so many believe in so many different things, God, no God, Enlightenment, Jesus, no Jesus, Big bang, Maybe this or I only believe in ____!!! Do you and I have a future? If you see someone, at the back, pushing their vehicle down the freeway by themselves and you stop to help. As you begin to ease your car or truck up to the rear of theirs to push them off to the side where they will be able to use your cell phone to call for help, someone falls asleep at the wheel and hits you form the back at 85 mph. When the dust settles all three are banged up but are also still alive.
I know some would say it was just coincidence, or an interesting story. What I told you actually happened. And the one who stopped had recently confessed their love and faith in God which might bring up another question. Is Satan real? Satan is real!!! Satan often sets us up to be in just that kind of situation. Do I stop and help another or let someone else. Not knowing what our choices will lead to, often causes Satan to laugh out loud. I can just hear him, 'I knew they would make the wrong choice', and in this instance could have allowed the death of someone a stranger by someone also a stranger who may have also died.
Our conscience guides us to do the things we do. We weigh the outcome of our effort against our need to be right. Some times we are wrong. I knew a man once that said "I'm never wrong, but there was one time I thought I was, but I was wrong, so you see I am never wrong." I always thought he was kidding and let it go. But I now know that there are those who really stick to that kind of logic. Personally, I am sure they are confused as I also was (past tense?). Since I have read 3 chapters of the Bible every day for the last three years and continuing, I now have become confused as to why so many are in such disagreeance with the truth.
Are you searching for an answer to a question that would require you to continue to search until you find an answer? And if so, are you willing to follow the more difficult path, or will you cry out that it is just to hard for me (boo hoo), or you think reading God's word should be easier or at least easier to understand? Then how are you going to find an answer that was not intended to be easy. You may or may not have children, but you were or are a child. And being a child is unique in that it would be better to be a child (at least in attitude) while reading and studying God's word. If you are truly searching for an answer to what is going on inside you, you can not find an answer from false sources. Of course a nonbeliever in the truth being the Bible will claim this is just my opinion. And they have that to their choice. (The way of Jesus still causes me to pray for their understanding of the truth).
The Bible, the whole Bible when you allow The Holy Spirit to guide, is the best resource to aid you in all that you seek. If you seek not or if you give up short of finding the answer you wanted, what then? Will you blame yourself for not looking in the right place? Will you "Let Go, Let God?" Maybe you already believe in other gods, or would never believe in any god of any kind, what then will you do with that nagging, gnawing, emptiness that strikes at you repeatedly? Let God, let Jesus, let the Holy Ghost show you the way? Remember you were searching for something (an answer) to fill in the gap before you found the answer you attached yourself to, and now you are searching for something to fill in a new gap. The choice is up to you!!! Your prayers could be heard. Your thoughts are heard and remembered. We are told in the Bible that:
1st John 5:6-8 And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
If you are to know the truth your heart will show you the way. All I can say is that you are free to believe in the truth or the false professions that exist all around you. Every day you get up, you make one choice after another, but if you say 'I think, therefore I am' when the time comes that you die, I know for a fact you will go to Jesus and get on your knees and confess your sins and ask God for mercy on your soul that you might be allowed to enter the kingdom of Heaven. These are some of the facts as it has been revealed to me.
Jesus said: in Matthew 12:36&37- 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned
Also in Romans 14:11&12- 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Jesus wept for that those he was looking at and were around Him that they were not accepting Him of the calling that was upon Him. God the Father sent Him to do a specific task. God the Father has sent you and I to accomplish a specific task as well. If you are reading the word of God, keep at it and ask The Holy Ghost to reveal all that you need to know. If you are not reading the Bible, the whole Bible, the word of God as a whole how will you ever come to know the great love that God has for every person on this earth no matter who you are or what you have done.
- - - - - - - - - -Jesus said in - Luke 21:36 - Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Remember, the choice is yours. I pray you make the right ones.
Jesus said in - Matthew 4:4- It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
