JUST SUPPOSE!

This I'll ever say: Closeness to God brings out the blessings of God.

 

JUST SUPPOSE!

Most of us might have been in agreement that all things are possible with God; if that’s the case, what if in the beginning, He had set up everything to hold for such and such a time, say in the far future until the time of His coming again. In that case, it could be fair to say this; He would know that while human live and operate in accordance with His instructions, no one would ever be lacking for anything in regards to life’s essential, even until then! If so, again, it would be fair to say, some people are to be blamed for most of those who are in need, and not God himself. Seeing as He made all the proper preparations, only that some others abused His resources by taking and keeping most for themselves, causing shortages for many people.

 

Keep in mind, friends, I’m not saying this, as if it is so; neither consider me to be right.

All the same is there much harm, if at all any, in thinking along this line? We can see for sure that there are lots of problems all over the world these days. The only concern is we need to find out what’s causing the trouble and seek for a fix, to fix it! This is why we will yet have to continue reading the Manual of life, which is the Holy Bible. Why? It’s because I’m convinced that if there is an answer to the world’s problem, it must have been written in the Bible. Then we must search for the solution in that book, the Bible!                                                                                                       

 

For this reason, we just need to study it more to find knowledge of how we’ll fix the problem. I’m of this opinion too, seeing that, most people refusing to support peace and love it could be some of what’s causing others to be falling into misery. Giving grounds to sinfulness and greed won’t be of any help. What then, following the way of the Lord, as it is written, must to be the only solution to solve human problems in this world? Imagine how much righteousness might’ve been crying out to have a say, but only to be disallowed. If man would put honesty to work, as it has been ordained, from my perspective, all people could derive great benefit…

 

However, let’s just assume, even for a moment that one of God’s worked days was equal to let’s say 5,000 years; and He goes to rest on the seventh; then, He would be still at rest today; and will not interfere into our day to day affairs until the day of His resting be completed. And, as a result, people began to get careless and even questioning His existence; instead of bearing in mind there cometh a day, at His return, when there will be lots of woes, and grief for unbelievers and wrong doers as well. This will be on a day when His resting is accomplished. Whereas, friends, such a day is known to no one, as it’ll be a surprise to everyone. Even as, it is written: The coming of the Lord is known unto no one.               

 

In that case, our duty is to watch and pray that when He comes He might find us with our hands raise in prayer and not down doing wrongs.  As it would be so nice just to hear Him say this: Concerning us, behold my beloveth children in whom I am well pleased, come and enter into my rest, a place of peace and endless love, which will never ever cease. Great it will be spending eternity in God’s presence, where there will be no more aching, pains or sicknesses. All the same, just suppose the reason why man seems to be getting away with so much evil is, owing to the Lord who is still at rest. Who knows?

 

Once more, just suppose, even though it is written, “God never sleep nor slumber.”

Well, according to that, it’s quite agreeable; He’s alive and He’s well awake. He is seeing all things and hearing all spoken words. Yet could it not be fair to say, He knows we’ve been taught right from wrong by Jesus, then He would be expecting us to do what’s right and live well, until He returns. And so, He will allow the wheat and the tear to grow … until the last day, how that sounds? I have to say, we’ve been very blessed, seeing as, Jesus’ life paid the cost at Calvary for us, even today! That's why given that we’ve been taught what’s right and righteous by the Lord; hence, it’s our duty to behave here righteously and live to please God. Then if that’s the case, God mightn’t interfere in our everyday activities, until He comes again.

 

I’m really of this belief, if we will live our lives as God wants us to; we wouldn’t have to suffer or struggle with hardship. Let’s try and see it this way, good parents bring up their children well; they teach the children good behavior.  And then those children who are brought up properly; they hardly will link themselves to bad company; and as a result, they are the children who often do better with their lives. In like manner if we would keep to God’s word, doing what is right and righteous, even as God rested we wouldn’t find ourselves lacking any of life’s essential. And so, it seems that we suffer wants, partly owing to our own disobedience and not due to God who may be still at rest. The word of God is our only real compass in this life, and hereafter. Hence take advice, read the Holy Bible as therein you’ll find words of comfort and of peace for your soul daily.

 

Even so, friends, bear in mind this, for all those who won’t seek forgiveness of their sins; they’ll be in trouble on that day, when the Lord shall appear to execute judgment.

You will do well by keeping to righteousness, give praise unto God and you’ll be blessed.
