Whenever you ask Jesus something, you have to expect an answer. And then you have to be looking for the answer, because it was written that whatever you ask in prayer, BELIEVING you shall receive it, he will do it (That doesn’t include your own selfish desires, but HIS will).
I asked Jesus a very specific question not long ago, and wanted a CLEAR explanation about it, or to understand it.
When you ask Jesus to teach you something, don’t expect him to use OTHER people as the example. Many times he uses YOUR LIFE. We can’t learn that much about His suffering if we don’t suffer ourselves.
I just want to share where I am so far in the revelation that got Jesus crucified on a cross.
I asked Jesus a question pertaining to WHY a certain thing was so bad that it deserved hell, when there are things that I do see why they end in hell.
The last time I asked a question like this, at the end I understood exactly why God hates such things, and even more why he words of Jesus Christ are ETERNALLY true in every nation and in all the generations of men. He is the LORD OF LORDS, the KING OF KINGS. From the rich to the poor, his words are GOOD and JUST. Amen.
I see so far, that one MAJOR thing in this world has corrupted so many people and kindred. There is a sort of violent struggle for CONTROL and POWER. To me, it seemed pretty old fashioned and silly. What does one person need with so much power and control?
And if a person had all power and all control, what would they do with it? Would they do evil? Or would they do good?
The only one that is worthy of ALL POWER and ALL CONTROL is God, because he is just, and he is not a thief nor a liar. He is fair, he is not selfish. So what would a mere man do with such power?
Satan himself sought a power that he was not worthy of. He sought all knowledge himself. He sought all power and control. He exalted himself above God in his heart. But for his foolishness he was cast out of heaven.
This is the same bait he used in the garden of eden. Why do men have this lust in them? Why do we lust after power and control, and so many other things, when even the best man at his best is altogether wicked when it comes to the righteousness of God?
I see that the way into this power, Satan has sought through DECEIT and TRICKERY and LIES.
All humans have, in some way or another, fallen victim to these lies.
When a wicked person is in power, they might rule through force and through dictatorship, or through lies and false promises. Many people fear them, so they obey them. Most people think this is the way a leader must behave. But in doing this, they become just like the Devil. All their business and all their agendas are shaped after their own lusts for a power and a control they are not worthy of. They are building in the kingdom of Satan, and not in the Kingdom of God.
And when that leader or that ruler is challenged by a greater authority, that is when you begin to see the TRUE NATURE in that person.
You see, it is just like false religion. False religion works through CONTROL AND POWER. From there it uses TRICKERY and LIES, and DECEIT to keep people loyal subjects to a doctrine or to a law system, or to a way of living, or to words that cannot save.
When the people of the world see false religion, naturally they question it, but they never seek the truth for themselves. Most people think God is behind these false religions, because they look so high and lofty and holy. But many cannot be further away from the Truth.
So when the TRUTH is spoken, and the loyal subjects to that religion hear the TRUTH, and then question the false doctrine, then the religious leaders might get puffed up with pride and fight AGAINST the TRUTH.
They might even deceive themselves further and convince themselves that what they are doing and telling others is TRUE, while they are only doing so out of DENIAL of the TRUTH, and LOVE of the LIE.
You see, the religious leaders have the CONTROL of the people. And whatever they will, the people give.
Tithe and offering is an example. Preachers are covetous, and preach a gospel of mammon, but if they heard the Truth, they would say it is False.
This love of POWER and CONTROL does not only exist in the religious sects of men, but in the governmental institutions and in the educational institutions.
When they are faced with the TRUTH, then they might get hostile and fight against the TRUTH, which the Holy Ghost makes clear to them i the Truth, their own conscience a witness against them.
And so, it becomes harder and harder for a RIGHTEOUS person to be righteous in such an wicked place.
Then what is GOOD is scoffed at, and what is EVIL is praised.
This is how this very nation, America, is falling. From the businesses to the government, to the education systems.
What is this power and control you seek? You are not even worthy of it. ONLY GOD IS!!!
You will be striving against The Lord. Not against men.
Satan makes the hearts of the wicked burn against The Lord, because he himself is reserved for the fire.
But the LORD IS GOOD, AND JUST, AND MERCIFUL, AND KIND, AND GENTLE. FOR HE IS LOVE!!!
I will end this with a scripture:
10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
