We must love our Lord more and more. Love is lived, love is given. God gave Himself for us, so in return we want to give ourselves too. With God, it is not dogmas and creeds but a life. We have to get out of these things to have a true relationship with Him.
God wants to commune with His people As he did with Adam in the Garden of Eden, God wants to keep that communion with us. And we too, as Adam was about his Father's business, we must be about our Father's business. But we must know who our Father is! The disciples asked Jesus, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples. And he said to them: when you pray, say: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Luke 11:1-2). " God also wants to reign in your life. You must have a relationship with Him because you call Him Father. This is not a formula but a reality. "But to all who have received Him, to those who believe in His name, He has given the power to become children of God" (John 1:12) He is our Father, He knows us. He has begotten us, we are His. He knows us by name. We have not gone on an adventure but we are the ones who make the history of this time. God does not oblige you in anything. He has shown you what He wants, but it is up to you to accept that you want to please God. But you are playing! If you are bad, then be bad. God does not force you to be nice. When you are born of God, you must produce the life of Christ in you. Eternal life is a gift. That is what we are thankful for. "But the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. "(Romans 6:23) In this gift you have everything.
When Mary and Joseph came to Bethlehem, they could not find a place to stay. Yet they were in Galilea, they thought they were giving birth in Galilea; but the Bible had said, "And you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, small among the thousands of Judah, out of you shall come forth for me the One who shall rule over Israel, whose origin is from ancient times, from the days of eternity. "(Micah 5:2) God is the God of His Word. This child was the Son of God so the Word of God had to be fulfilled. Everything is under God's control. All governments can say what they want, in the end they will always come back to what the Word has declared. What can escape God's control? God allows even complicated situations but He also gives the remedy. Not everything that happens can make you tremble. "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and the victory that overcomes the world is our faith. "(1 John 5:4) Just be sure that you belong to Him. Satan is clever and cunning but our God is wise, He has armed us. We live in a visible world but God gives you the ability to believe in the invisible. In the face of adversity, in the face of trial, the Christian sees beyond the visible. It is in the trial that we see the difference with the Christian.
Genesis 1 : 26-27 / Genesis 5 : 1-2
The woman is well in the original creation. Both man and woman were created by God. God placed you above all things, He created you to dominate. God created the earth for man to be on it. Do not look for life on Mars or anywhere else because God only created the Earth for man. The wind was not created for the birds but for you because you need oxygen. The sun is not for God but for you. The religious mind is so thin. You think you are a believer but you are religious. When the Word of God comes and you have something of God in you, it must have an effect in you. God works in you through preaching. It is the Word that will bring you to the fulfillment of all things. You love to sing, you are in joy; but when it comes to preaching, you just go in and out, you are distracted. We must sing to the glory of God but we must sing in the right way, as God wants. God makes you perfect through his Word. During the preaching of the Word, Satan wants to confuse you so that you can't listen. But God wants you to be free. He has given you a weapon: the Bible, but you must know how to use it. In Matthew 11:15, Jesus said, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear. "But in Revelation, He says "He who has ears, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. "(Revelation 3:6) Not the messenger but the Spirit. God made this clear so that the believer could see the faithfulness of God. "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. "(Matthew 24:35) Paul went away, Peter went away but the Word of God always remained. What is the message that God gave to Brother Branham as a forerunner of the second coming of Christ? There have been many preachings of Brother Branham but we are talking about a message. So, we must choose which preaching? The branhamists are of the devil but Brother Branham is a man of God. God wants branhamism to come out of us. As long as it remains, it is demons that attach themselves. We have to be cleansed. There is the Word of God in the brochures but the brochures are not the Word of God. To hear the Spirit, one must be a chosen one. God always has a purpose that He seeks. God told Adam and Eve to have dominion, and then afterwards, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it" (Genesis 1:28) This means that the man and woman were to have children. "I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed: she shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise her heel. "(Genesis 3:15) For there to be Adam and Eve, there had to be creation, not procreation! Adam did not give birth to Eve. God is perfect. The chosen ones have something special. Under the Oak of Mamre, when there were the three men, Abraham recognized the Lord.
Lord is singular here. He did not say "in your sight" (plural )but "in your eyes" (singular). When you are a chosen one, there is no confusion. Abraham recognized Elohim, the other two were angels. He was not told anything, he recognized in his heart. God is with you when you are with Him. He walks with the one who fears Him. "The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and snatches them out of danger. "(Psalm 34:7) If death strikes you tomorrow, where do you go? There is one who can solve all your problems, Jesus Christ. When you have Him, it's over. God doesn't work with your thoughts or your own ideas. Who taught Abraham to know how to receive strangers and make them feel comfortable? "Greet one another with a holy kiss. " (Romans 16:16) We were not told to greet each other with elbows. God teaches us. A chosen one is a chosen one. When the Word comes out, the elect listens and obeys. The chosen ones are children of peace. A chosen one does not come to you to bring trouble. Wherever he goes, there is peace. We are ambassadors of Christ. Abraham did everything necessary, he did it with all his heart. When you are a son of God, God places a clear path in you. If you receive the Word, it has an effect on you. "Let us not forsake our assembly, as is the custom of some; but let us exhort one another, and all the more as you see the day approaching. "(Hebrews 10:25) When you cut off communion with your brother or sister, you show that you are not in communion with God. When everything is settled with God, you have the desire to see everyone. At Pentecost, when Peter preached, the fire came down. The hearts of those who were there were touched. He simply said, "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. "(Acts 2:38) He said nothing else. But they all had a desire to stay together. They went home and had a heart to sell everything and put it all together. When you receive God into your heart then God leads you into all truth. The Word comes alive in you. When you are in this position, the works are done naturally. We have left God, we are in theory. But God wants you to live the Word. When the Word of God is preached, it falls into the heart of the believer and produces its effect. Abraham did not look, he gave the best. We prefer to give to our families but think first of your brothers around you. Where is your faith? Our real family is the one in God. On the day of Pentecost, when they sold their goods, they did not share with their families but with the brothers and sisters. We have feelings for those in our families but first God and then the family. Selfishness must leave us. God was watching Abraham. When God saw all this, it touched God's heart. I will return to you at that time, and behold, Sarah your wife will have a son" (Genesis 18:10)." Rejoice in the heart of God and you will never lack. Elijah and the widow of Zarephath. "Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to feed you. "(1 Kings 17:9) But we never saw that God spoke to the woman. The woman was willing. The woman had nothing, God knew. God wanted something for the woman. "Only prepare me first a little cake with it, and bring it to me; then you shall make some for yourself and for your son. "(1 Kings 17:13) We may think he is selfish but a man of God is different. When God leads a man, he is different. Elijah knew that God had sent him for this woman. God knows you, He knows what He is doing with you.
