THEE END OF WARS
”Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.“
God searches every heart to see who seeks him. Jesus asked humanity a very decisive question over 2000 years ago; "When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the Earth?" - Luke 18:8
"Without faith, it is impossible to please God for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him" -Hebrews 11:6. We are in the final harvest where God is separating the good seed from the bad. He wants you to turn away from useless idols and seek His face, and please do not hesitate. "Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts..." Hebrews 3:15.
If you don't mind—I would love to bring your heart to the cutting table. What causes a man or a woman to not hear God? For me, it was a thirst to please others because I was a foreigner. I was more interested in validation from man and not my creator. That led me to do many wrongs that I've been forgiven for. Nevertheless, I don't have to wonder what it is for you, I know you—I was you. Your reasons include but aren't limited to:
Love for your sins: You know your sins are hurting you but you make defenses for them.
You secretly despise God: the thought of having to submit to someone more powerful than you annoys you, and you hate His perfect laws.
Willful Ignorance: You choose to not seek God's identity because there's "too much information out there".
Bliss: You want to have fun.
Blaming God for evil: Earth is full of violence and lust and God is just watching us begrudgingly doing nothing.
Poor view of God: God isn't cool enough for you or you undermine his glory.
Knowledge: You think you know more than God, thus your ego is inflated.
Assumptions: you lean on your own perspective to see the world
Trauma: You've been hurt by a church or loved one, and you resent God for letting it happen to you.
Loss: you think you'll lose money and/or friends and family if you follow God.
A spiritual war wages against your soul. You're either a participant or a prisoner of war. Believe me, I had to cast several evil spirits out from my house in the past. These demons want us in hell with them by any means necessary. But do not be deceived, God is victorious in the end. "...And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.“ - Revelation 20:10. So then, if we know that our God is victor, then why do you stand in a pool of doubt still? Come out from there and dry yourself with the towel of righteousness. You are a soldier of God fit for spiritual battle. "Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,"-Ephesians 6:13-17.
Most importantly, know God and turn from the ways of this world and into the light. Tomorrow is promised to no one. So today, if the word of the living God provokes you, do not tighten your heart—but open it to receive the love that is already marked out for you. There is a storm of people rising up who are recognizing their emptiness and instead of seeking fulfillment by worldly means, they are seeking God's very own face. It's a beautiful thing to be forgiven and blessed. Share this great news.
