Each passing day brings us a little closer to His coming. “I ask the Lord one thing, which I long for: I would like to live all my life in the house of the Lord, to contemplate the magnificence of the Lord and to admire His temple. (Psalm 27: 4) We are well in the House of God because there, God speaks to us. King Darius issued an edict for all of the people of Israel to go and rebuild the temple.
You had to be from this people. In Jerusalem, where God chose a city for Himself. It should not be done anywhere but in the place that God had chosen. It is not by chance. “The disciples said to Him, Where will it be, Lord? And He answered, Where will be the body, there the eagles will gather. (Luke 17:37) We cannot gather anywhere, wherever we want. The Lord is a God of principle. It does nothing out of the ordinary. We must learn to serve God in his full will, let ourselves be led by Him. There must be freedom. There is a gathering place where those who are His must be brought back. A place that God has approved to likewise approve us. It is not for God to submit to us but rather for us to submit to God. The people of Israel thought they could rule the Lord, but when they left Egypt, God sent them to the Red Sea. The grace that these people had was that Moses sought the face of God and the Will of God. God knew very well what He was doing but the people whispered. They did not rebuilding the temple anywhere but on the foundations in Jerusalem. The only foundation, Jesus Christ Himself.
James 1: 19-21
Believers must look the right way and understand the will of the One who called them. We are men with a lot of emotions and reactions. The apostle James shows us the external nature of man. The most important for man is his Salvation.
Ecclesiastes 12: 1-16
There comes a time when this body has to return to the dust, we cannot escape this. What is important to humans on earth? “It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feast; for this is the end of every man, and he who lives takes the thing to heart. (Ecclesiastes 7: 2) We are in a body and one day that body has to go. You have to go because you were pulled from the dust, you have to go back to the dust. Man is made up of 3 parts. The surrounding environment influences people and their reactions. We think that without money, we cannot live.
Isaiah 55: 1
The money we fight for here is worthless. As long as you stay natural, you are selfish and you seek things out. But when you become spiritual, its things disappear.
Matthew 6: 25-27
You can own everything but if you don't have life, what are you going to enjoy? We emphasize the accessory and neglect the main. Man does not think well. “For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth (Isaiah 38: 18-19). When you give birth to a child, you have an obligation to take care of it. He didn't ask for anything. The prodigal son wanted to leave the house, he squandered his possessions. Since leaving, the father has not said "I don't care" but he was sad. He was responsible for this child. A son will always remain a son for his parents. Parents are responsible for children as long as they are alive. Likewise, our Heavenly Father takes care of us. When we say brothers and sisters, we really are one family. “This is why, rejecting all defilement and all excess of malice, gently receive the word that has been planted in you, and which can save your souls. (James 1:21) The ability to be able to save your souls. "Put the word into practice, and do not limit yourself to listening to it, by deceiving yourselves by false reasoning. (James 1:22) God wants the Truth to be in us. What God is looking for is always your inside. At Pentecost, it was not the outside but the heart that was touched. "Those who received with good heart". What is mine is my brother and what is my brother is mine. My brother's children are mine. We have nothing in this world because we are pilgrims on this earth. When God uses a man, He will make him go through difficult times because he must have more. Flowers must be given while alive, not when the person is dead. "Since you have been regenerated, not by a corruptible seed, but by an incorruptible seed, by the living and permanent word of God. (1 Peter 1:23). We were begotten by the Lord. We must have liberality. We have to care about each other. We can criticize you, look for you badly ...
Matthew 5: 38-48 / Colossians 3: 12-14
God gives these things to us so that it is in us. We have to live it.
Matthew 6: 25-33
“I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you; I will remove the heart of stone from your body, and I will give you a heart of flesh. "(Ezechiel 36:26)" Having purified your souls by obeying the truth in order to have sincere brotherly love, love one another ardently with all your heart. (1 Peter 1:22) We are one body and we share one Father. Let us know how to love and take care of our brothers and sisters during our pilgrimage. We are ambassadors of Christ on earth.
