Do you not know ?– Have you not heard ?– Have you not read ? Do you not understand ? The phrases used by Jesus Christ, the Son of God, during His ministry in the Greatest Event and The Greatest Person ever witnessed and recorded throughout all of history. God in the flesh walking among the people He has created to save them from destruction, sin and death.
Romans 14:7,8 " For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's."
We all can think of history and the past as something that does not concern us. We can also think that the Bible and the Gospel of Christ is not relevant to us at this present time, nor can it apply to this day and age. This is at the heart of faulty thinking, lack of awareness, and our limited lack of knowledge and understanding.
My friends, I thought this way for 53 years, so I know these thoughts all too well for that is how I was thinking. I will tell you, without any doubt, that if you are thinking like this, you are blinded by the truth, being deceived and manipulated by the power and influence of the god of this world(Satan), just as I was for all those years.
Ponder these truths for just a moment and then and ask yourself these questions: Who created and formed you in your mother’s womb ? Who do you really belong to ? Can anyone else take one breath for you ? Can anyone else think one thought for you ? Can anyone else feel your emotions ? and Can anyone else take your last breath and die for you ?
There is ONLY ONE YOU- there is no other and There is ONLY ONE GOD - there is no other.
1 Corinthians 8:6 “There is one God the Father, of Whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom are all things, and through Whom we live.”
John 1:1-4 “In the beginning was the Word(Jesus Christ) and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He (Jesus) was in the beginning with God, all things were made through Him(Jesus), and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him(Jesus) was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” (emphasis mine)
John 1:10-13 “He(Jesus) was in the world and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own,and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name; who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
We must remember and understand that while we have all been created in God’s image we are not considered His children until we have received, fully embraced, and totally accepted Him as our Lord and Savior ! That decision He has left entirely up to you, and no one else can make it but you !!
