“But without faith it is impossible to please Him (God), for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Heb. 11:6)

Wahoo!
What about my good works; the charity I gave;
How about my attendance in the church?
I never missed my tithe
How about my position as overseer over my church?
Another says ‘I build a church for the Lord”
The other says “I am a professor in theology”
Do they count?
No
All are human proofs of pleasing God
Though, an added value if for the glory of God
Faith pleases God first; others things follow as enhancements

Humanity independence and civilization
A brutal dependence on the enemy of mankind
Satan, through self-will and human liberation
A free for all system called norms of the day
A shift from reliance on the creator of all existence
To reliance on man’s ever perishable creations
Can you impress God out of His dependence?
No
Faith in Him is the main

Does human knowledge count before God?
Pharaoh’s Wise men failed in the day of their test
Daniel’s dependence on God excels him above others
The more independence of human knowledge
The more disastrous of its fruit
Knowledge out of His will counts to nothing,
God does not share His glory with anything
Does human knowledge count before Him?
No
Faith in Him is more pleasing

Can your wealth and riches influence God?
Can your tithe and offering please Him?
God is not Balaam who covets unrighteous gain
Are wealth and riches not his provision for righteous use?
But now, a man’s quest for wickedness
No
You cannot influence God with anything
Faith in Him is the main

Can your accomplishment move God?
Position or status must subject to His knowledge
The greatest living book, the Bible, states,
“The Most High rules in the kingdom of men,
Gives it to whomever He will,
And sets over it the lowest of men”
He crowns who He wishes with glory and honor
He is above all accomplishment
He lives above all
He is no respecter of any ungodly accomplishment
Faith in Him makes accomplishment meaningful
Faith first, other things follow

Level of faith is an added value
Faith stems your relationship with God
The Word feeds your faith to grow
The more Word, the higher your level of faith
The Word enlightens, illuminates and transforms the mind
The more Word you have the more you love to seek Him

In conclusion
God rewards those who have faith in Him
Those who diligently seek Him
Those who put their trust in Him;
Those who delight in Him;
Those who commit their ways to Him;
Those who rest in Him: and
Those who wait patiently for Him
Faith in Him makes you to prosper in all your ways
2Chro. 26:5

When countenance is not familiar

Complexion denies the interior

Why sad?

Your smile is deceptive

Warmness seems to vacate your premise

Your quietness is not lowliness

Your quietness speaks neither of loneliness

Your reflection echoes for help

 

Why sad? Why worry?

The old man is not asking for food

Yet, the old man is satisfy with empty stomach

Yes, the worries of this world satisfies him

This is contradiction of the Lord’s word

“Seek ye the kingdom of God first…” Matt. 6:33

This is the “main” street

 

The Lord said”Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof” (Matt. 6:25-33).

 

You neglect the “main” for the extra

And attract the extra for the “main”

The “main” is all it requires

The “main” wipes the tears of the heart

The “main” soothes the soul

The “main” holds the recipe for happiness and joy

It holds all other things

Now not tomorrow, incline to the “main”

 

Why still sad?

Burst to the Lord, says Jeremiah (Jer. 33:3)

Experience the joy of the Lord

Enjoy the unfathomable of His greatness

Worries architect disappointment

Disappointment brings sorrow and weeping

Weeping disheartening and blinds the thought of the heart

Vex the soul and spirit

Harbor’s the incurables

Blinds the physically and the spirituality of man

The “main” echoes help for cure

 

Still sad? Cheers

For, the good news speaks

For your sake, Jesus manifest

To heal your broken heart

To liberate you from captivity of worrisome

To liberate you from self oppression

To comfort you

Gives you a new song

Now you can see through faith in Him, says Isaiah 61

Cling to the “main” today

Christ is Lord

Cheers and worry no more

“ I watched till thrones were put in place
And the ancient of days was seated;
His garment was white as snow,
And the hair of His head was like pure wool.
His throne was a fiery flame
Its wheels a burning fire
“…The court was seated
And the books were opened” (Dan. 7:9-10)

How it begins
Adam, the first in the image of God
The only God’s image among terrestrials
The splendor of the Lord in Eden
An associate of splendor in the cool of the day
What a glorious splendor
However, sin sets disobedience as bait
Man falls for the bait
Adam, your freedom in Eden is defied
The occasion for freedom turns to disobedience (sin)
“Adam, where are you?
Disobedience backfires; it turns freedom to fear

Oh my God, my God
Where did I miss the mark?
My sin echoes; my disobedience speaks within me
Where can I hide?
Is He not omniscient?
Does the creator of the eye not see?
Behold, is the universe not crystal clear to Him?
God sees beyond external
The evil intent of man’s heart is displayed on His monitor

Excuse is handicap
Before I was born, He formed me; so?
It is no justification for sin and waywardness
After all, I am human; then?
No matter how I walk, there is movement of the head
Oh my soul, stop criticism and contention with the chief justice
Sin is smoke; it cannot be caged
Sin is like blood
Like the blood of Abel, it speaks
Stop criticism, stop contention
Eve blamed the snake; Adam blamed God
All are excuses
Your self-centeredness caused your sin
In return, sin caused your self-defeat

Sin echoes
I am alive; I entered you; and I am your desire
I love the inner emotion part of you
To caused your chronically mentally illness
Influenced you like alcohol or drug
Temporarily sets you off guard
I used you and garbage you
I caused you to fall and temporarily hide you
I will reveal your hideout
I am responsible for the Law
Without me, there is no Law
I caused the Law; the Law convicts you
I become a thorn in you flesh

Sin breeds sin
Oh, that Israel will drive out its unholy neighbor (Jos.2)
Mortify your members that are in the world
Exposure of sin is inevitable no matter how long it is hidden
David engaged adultery
Adultery breeds murder of Uriah
However, murder uncovers David’s adultery with Bathsheba

Your sin will be rewarded
Excuse is no justification in judgment
Excuses failed to pardon Adam and Eve (Gen. 3:16-9)
The temple altar failed to protect Joab (1Ki. 2:26-34)
Guilty conscience condemned Judas Iscariot (Matt. 27:3-5)
The Holy Spirit convicted Ananias with Sapphira (Acts 5:1-11)
What is your excuse?

Your sin will locate you
Wealth, riches, position, fame, ethics, moral or spirituality
All will fail to cover any sin
Truth will reveal every secret sin
Confession stops the bleeding of sin
U-turn from sin is true repentance
The only course to true liberation from sin

Jesus: the way, truth and life
Gratitude to our God through our Lord Jesus
The complete knowledge and understanding of our weakness
Our trust and sympathizer
Our intercessor and advocate
In him, we are liberated from sin, its power and consequence
