Seek Him Truly - Monday's Dose - 18th December 2017


“A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised” (1 Corinthians 2:14).

Thoughts for Today

Look around and you will be amazed at all the manifestations of the “self” movement, including self-actualization, self-empowerment, and self-improvement. It is as if all the answers to your problems are to be found by looking within.

But this is spirituality only in the loosest sense. In truth, it is “shadow spirituality”—merely a shadow of the real thing. Shadow spirituality asks individuals to look inward, to put themselves at the center of the universe while pushing God so far to the fringes that He is left out of the picture. What remains is a spirituality of self.

In other words, shadow spirituality replaces the God of the universe with the “god within.” This god is not the triune God revealed in the Bible, but rather a force that supposedly compels a person to improve himself. This god is nothing more than the human ability to learn, grow, and develop—all of which are God’s gifts to people. None of these abilities, however, is capable of regenerating the human heart. Only God has that power.

The ascendance of shadow spirituality has influenced even traditional churches, and two great heresies have resulted. One is the heresy that all spirituality is good spirituality. The second is the heresy that all religions are valid as long as they promote peace and unity. Do not allow false teachers to mislead you. Instead, lay hold of the only form of spiritual power that genuinely heals you and makes you whole. It is only in God’s true spirituality that you find solace for your heart’s deepest longings—healing for the soul, peace for the mind, and comfort for broken emotions. This healing comes only when you are committed to the pursuit of God’s true spirituality.

The Holy Spirit is calling you to look upward, to put God as the center of all that you will face today, and to grow in understanding and in relationship with Him. Will you invite the Holy Spirit to fill you afresh this day? God has promised that He will reveal Himself to you if you truly seek Him with all your heart.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 

I want to seek You and Your true spirituality. Help me to move away from falsehood and toward Your truth. Help me seek You with my entire being. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, 
Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.

The Great White Throne Judgement by Jesus Christ The Son of God - Is your name in the Book of Life? - A Must Watch Video





Once your soul is convicted, that soul is ready to be converted, a lot of people are convicted, but they never got converted - Pastor Charles Lawson




Hell... what it is, where it came from, and how YOU can stay away from it.

"What is the Book of Life?

Revelation 20:15 declares, “If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”
The Book of Life, in this context, is the set of names of those who will live with God forever in heaven. It is the roll of those who are saved. This Book of Life is also mentioned in Revelation 3:5; 20:12; and Philippians 4:3. The same book is also called the Lamb’s Book of Life because it contains the names of those who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lord Jesus (Revelation 13:8; 21:27).

How can you be sure your name is written in the Book of Life?
Be sure you’re saved. Repent of sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (Philippians 4:3; Revelation 3:5).
No true believer should doubt his eternal security in Christ (John 10:28-30).

The Great White Throne Judgment described in Revelation 20:11-15 is a judgment for unbelievers. That passage makes it clear that no one at that judgment has his name in the Book of Life (Revelation 20:12-14). The fate of the ungodly is sealed; their names are not in the Book of Life; their punishment is sure.

Some people point to Revelation 3:5 as “proof” that a person can lose his salvation. However, the promise of Revelation 3:5 is clearly that the Lord will not erase a name: “He who overcomes . . . I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life.” An overcomer is one who is victorious over the temptations, trials, and evils of this world—in other words, one who is redeemed. The saved are written in God’s registry and have the promise of eternal security.

Another passage over which confusion sometimes arises is Psalm 69:28: “Let them [David’s enemies] be blotted out of the book of the living.” This “book of the living” should not be confused with the Lamb’s Book of Life. David is referring to earthly, physical life, not eternal life in heaven. The same is true of the “book” mentioned in Exodus 32:32-33.

God keeps good records. He knows His own, and He has set the names of His children permanently in His book.

Unless you have the righteousness of Jesus Christ, the wrath of God is upon you even now. You are but a breath away from experiencing the wrath of Almighty God!

If you want to face the wrath of God, then turn away from Jesus. Turn away from the crucified one. Spit upon him, pull his beard, pound the crown of thorns on his head.
Here, take the cat of nine and peel the flesh from his back. Beat him until he is not recognizable.
Here, mock him, gamble for his robe. Treat him like the dog you think he is.

Perhaps you say I would never do that. I’m, too good.
Your good works are as filthy rags to God.

If you depend upon any of your efforts to get to heaven, you might as well start whipping Jesus, because you are saying that His crucifixion wasn’t good enough.

We all have a face to face with Jesus Christ.
We will know what God thinks of our self-righteousness when we gaze upon the face of Jesus.

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 3:36 (KJV)

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Romans 1:18 (KJV)

But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. Romans 2:5 (ESV)

For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Thessalonians 5:9 (ESV)
